Make up designed, created and applied by myself, onto myself.

Make up designed, created and applied by myself, onto myself.

Hello there! I'm Ellie.
A prosthetic make up artist, art finisher and props painter. I've got a funny accent, an addiction to zombie shows, a constant craving for tacos and a need to make friends with your cat. I've worked everywhere from a crazy golf course to the inside of a coca cola vending machine- but my best days are spent sticking glue onto actors.
