A day with Debbie

Debbie Cross Dresser

Debbie booked the studio for the day along with Paul to work his magic with makeup and photography. Because Debbie booked the whole day we were able to take her to Manchester’s Canal Street for lunch at Velvet which was a wonderful break in the day. Here are the results of Debbie’s shoot.

Vic Marley, Makeup Artist

Back in 2016 I decided to do formal makeup and hair training and set up my little business. While I didn’t know at the time where exactly it would lead me, since the moment I picked up my first professional makeup brush, I have loved every second of my journey to where I am today!

I truly believe in beauty within, but I also acknowledge the power of makeup and how it can help give a little boost to someone’s self confidence.

Trained at North East Make Up Academy.
