Aine Thomas

My initial pull towards becoming a makeup artist was from watching the BTS of Shaun of the dead; working as a TV and Film makeup artist is a way of turning my love of festival dress up and escapism into a real career. I am always eager to use my passion and skills to contribute to the overall success of the teams I work with. My extensive experience in the hospitality industry has given me some of the top skills as a trainee: my ability to to pull a conversation out of thin air tied with my tea and coffee making (which is second to none), although I want to have a good time on set, I ultimately believe that I am there to do the job to the best of my ability, learn and be a positive and useful addition to the production.
