Hello and thank you for visiting Face2Face by Amanda! My name is Amanda Roberts and I am a fully qualified Make-up, Hair & Beauty Artist, Media Consultant and Freelance Educator. I have featured as the Skin Camouflage Expert on Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies numerous times and have promoted Skin Camouflage Awareness on BBC Radio. My work as a Freelance Educator allows me to deliver Make-up, Hair & Beauty Courses to professional people already working within the industry as well as those looking to learn new skills to help kick-start their career. I have also developed a number of workshops that are designed to help professionals looking to add to or refresh their skill set. These workshops can also be presented to the general public who wish to enhance their personal skills.
When I initially started out, I began my beauty career as a Consultant Manager for Clinique. During this time, I was asked if I would like to donate some of my time for the charity, Look Good Feel Better which was set up to help women who have had or are going through cancer treatment. The workshop was developed to show them how to look after their skin and apply makeup to help them feel positive. I have also had the opportunity to provide my makeup artistry skills for the Marks and Spencer charity calendar. I find working with these causes thoroughly enjoyable and very rewarding and continue to work with them and others.
Throughout my career, I have always endeavoured to remain at the cutting edge of beauty techniques. As part of my development, I attended a course explaining the extended work that you can be involved in as a Makeup Artist. I took a deep interest in how Skin Camouflage can positively affect peoples lives. Whilst qualifying I realized how involved this work was and how my previous career as a counsellor helped in working empathically with people. Research shows that there are many psychological factors that can affect people who have skin disorders. I was recommended by the Lead Trainer at the British Association of Skin Camouflage to promote this organization on C4's Embarrassing Bodies. I have featured a number of times on the program as a Skin Camouflage Make-up Expert.
I have been a Freelance Educator in the field of make-up hair and beauty for the last two years. I hold a PTLLS 7303 City and Guilds Certificate to support people in their Continuous Personal Development in addition to the qualifications listed below. I am highly motivated with great communication skills and an ability to adapt my teaching to the students to guarantee their understanding.
The training provided at Face2Face by Amanda has developed as a natural extension of my teaching skills coupled with my enthusiasm for make-up and beauty. I believe it is important to add to the skills of professionals to enhance their businesses, but also to help create a new generation of artists with great abilities and a true passion about their career. I love the interaction with students and enjoy helping with their creativity. I am always humbled by the trust that is placed in me and I always give my full support to ensure that students are successful on their course.
