From Musicals To Makeup! We talk to Make up Artist Libertii Beau
As a child Trixie took dance class at Jeanette Dupont Stage School, Leicester. She also attended weekly associate classes at the Royal Ballet before being offered a place at their prestigious boarding school White Lodge in London, age 10. She then successfully auditioned for the legendary choreographer Arlene Phillips in her early teens earning a place in her then teenage dance troop, Hollywood.
Although nothing became of the dance troop Trixie continued on with her professional dancing career working in the West End at the London Palladium with Bruce Forsyth and theatre’s around the Country with other personalities of the day, such as Tommy Cooper and Les Dennis to name but a few.
After this Trixie moved onto exploring new horizons travelling the world as Professional Lead Dancer for Carnival Cruise Lines and the QE2.
Trixie has now formed Libertii Beau Makeup Artist, (MUA) her own company of just 3 years, specialising in Bridal and Fashion Makeup as well as providing choreographed professional bridal runway shows. “Makeup has been part of my professional career for as long as I can remember, working in theatre, modelling and choreography. I’m also a qualified interior designer and live my life in colour. Colour is nature’s mood board and this is where as a makeup artist I gain a lot of my ideas from initially, I then adapt that tone and texture into my work.’
Her idols and inspirations within the makeup industry include, Eve Pearl, Charlotte Tilbury and Jeffree Star. They’re makeup ranges are cruelty free and Trixie uses these regularly in her kit. She is a self taught MUA but has updated her skills through makeup courses and regularly stays up to date with trends through other means.
Exciting times are coming up for Trixie as she has just been selected as a finalist in the Midlands Fashion Awards, MUA category, being held in Brimingham later this autumn.
Trixie is genuinely thrilled to be a part of this and cannot wait to work alongside other creatives behind the scenes prepping catwalk models for the show. ‘I’m so happy to be involved with such a huge event as I thrive on my own creative abilities and being given an opportunity to express those, is just fantastic! To be able to showcase my work to industry leaders and professionals is something I’m very much looking forward to.’
