Elizabeth Reid (Lizzie)

As an Iver Makeup Academy graduate, I am a diligent, creative, and optimistic individual striving to work as a Hair and Makeup Trainee within Film, TV and Theatre. I have a huge appreciation for the Creative Arts and their importance within our lives; therefore, to play a role in bringing artistic vision to life is truly a dream, and with Hair and Makeup the creative possibilities are excitingly endless! I thrive in a positive, fast-paced, and inspiring environment and am extremely passionate about pursuing this career, eagerly working hard, and learning fast! I hold a full, clean UK driving licence and own my own vehicle.
