About

Coming from a creative family I had a passion for art, fashion, beauty and culture from an early age. Having studied fashion at The London College of Fashion, my first career steps led me to one of the most renowned department stores in the world - Selfridges. Working as a Fashion Buyer for Ladies Accessories, and the Wonder Room, allowed me to get up close to the fashion industry and unleash my creative side in all the wonderful opportunities the stores had to offer.

After 7 years, I took a change of direction and decided that I wanted to explore other creative avenues. I began taking short courses in all areas of makeup from beauty; to special effects, to period looks, to hair, and I knew this was where I wanted to be.

Having trained with many exceptionally talented makeup artists, such as Margo Holder, Jana Carboni, and Julia Townend. They inspired me to undertake further training to be a hair and makeup artist of the highest calibre. I had already attained my qualification as a Professional Skin Camouflage Practitioner with the British Association of Skin Camouflage (BASC) (click here to find out more), now I wanted to pursue other areas of makeup, particularly in fashion, film and tv. 

This led me to Brushstroke Makeup School, based at the world famous Shepperton Film Studios, where many of the greatest movies have been filmed. Enrolling on their Professional Hair and Makeup for Fashion, Media, Film and TV was the best decision I made. Whilst on the course I learnt all aspects of hair and makeup (some examples of which can be seen here), covering special effects, prosthetics, high fashion, editorial, bridal, period looks, media, haircutting, wig making and dressing, airbrushing, as well as working on set and business. I was taught and inspired by many experienced and established makeup industry professionals including James Anda, Anita Perrett, Marella Shearer, Adrian Rigby, Carla Viljeon and Paula Cahill. The course, along with further hairdressing training, equipped me with the practical and theoretical skills to work as a successful hair and make-up artist within the television, film, theatre and fashion industry.

Since starting my career I have been fortunate to work on some amazing film and televison productions, including Eastenders, Endeavour, and Farming, as well as design the hair and makeup for several award winning short films. Including gaining a Best Makeup nomination myself, for my work on short film, Meat. I have also worked for brands such as Sainsbury’s, Toni & Guy, and Price Waterhouse Cooper. I am also a BFI Network x BAFTA Crew member. Please email info@charlottetrendell.com for a copy of my CV.

I always conduct myself in an efficient and professional manner, delivering exceptional quality, whilst helping to make my clients feel at ease as they prepare for their role.
