 Tara is originally from England, growing up just outside London. A dancer, an artist and a daughter of two hairdressers, she was destined to end up in the beauty field.  She trained in makeup and hair at the London College of Fashion and quickly found herself assisting and working with some of the best make up and hair artists in London.  She has worked all over the world, from Dubai to Ibiza, to New York and London, working with many photographers, such as Rankin and gaining a client list to be envious of.   She finally settled in California, where she says the light and landscape are a constant inspiration.  Her style of makeup is light and enhancing, bringing out the natural beauty in everyone she works with. She is equally comfortable working with hair as well, where her style leans towards the undone, done styles that California is so evocative of.  With an Actor husband and furry mother to two adorable cockapoos, Los Angeles is where she calls home these days and what a fantastic home it is!
