ABOUT

TAMARA MAE RICHARDS

My name is Tamara Mae Richards, I am a Freelance Make-up and Prosthetic Artist. An enthusiastic, highly ambitious individual, confident within working in a workshop environment and being on set. I consider myself as an ‘all-rounder’ regarding hair, make-up and prosthetics.

 

 A recent graduate from the Arts University Bournemouth in Make-up for Media and Performance with a First-Class Honours. I was also awarded the 2020 'Nigel Beale Award for Make-up'; along side being part of the BFI NETWORK x BAFTA CREW 20/2021 as a Hair & Makeup Artist. 

I am eager to continue with my passion for working in the TV & Film industry. A confident traveller with driving and on public transport willing to commute and relocate if needed.  I have seven-years experience in customer services, along with my industry experience as a trainee & assistant, I believe it indicates a reliable, sensible and hard worker with a strong passion for this industry due to the skills attained.
