MAKE UP BY TASH

 

Make up Artist, Fine Artist and Illustrator, Tasha Atkins is at her best when creating beautiful and interesting things – whether on a face, canvas, or a piece of discarded wood she can carve on!

Tash has worked as a make up artist for 17 years and has worked for MAC for the past 6 years. She studied Make up at The Academy of Film and Television in New Zealand, and completed a degree in Graphic Design and Visual Arts.

Because of an incredibly broad skillset Tash has been able to perform diverse work in Film, TV, Theatre, Bridal, and Music Videos. Her work has taken her to the South of France, Paris, Greece, Italy, and all over England.

Among other projects Tash assisted on prosthetics preparation and application for Lord of the Rings; worked as a key make up artist and prop designer in Guys and Dolls in New Zealand; travelled across England as a make up artist with the BBC News team; toured with Culture Club; and has recently worked on a music video "For the Dreamers" by Evi Vine.

Tash finds inspiration in art exhibitions, music magazines, designers, and the artists she works with.

"Being a make up artist is fantastic..I love my job and am lucky enough to get to do it everyday!"

At Paintbox London School Tasha Atkins teaches the art of make up.
