My Journey

At Beauty by Ruby Grace, I am here to enhance your beauty and make you feel amazing.

Since 2017, I have dedicated my entire career to bringing out the inner beauty in all of my clients. My love for makeup started when I was a little girl diving into my older sisters' and mum's makeup bags and trying on all their makeup, often walking down stairs with an orange face and bright pink lips! However, I was taken aback by the confidence it gave me and how beautiful it made me feel and that's how I wanted to make other people feel.

Throughout my school years I knew that one day I wanted to become a bespoke professional make-up artist in the beauty world. I went to college to study special effects makeup for film and TV after my beauty course got cancelled, but I quickly realised it wasn't quite the right path for me, although it did leave me with a love for SFX makeup, so halloween is such a fun time for me! I then decided to work on jobs assisting other makeup artists! Learning on the job (as well as teaching myself at home) was the best experience I could've had and it's helped me to grow into the artist I am today. I also worked at Charlotte Tilbury in Oxford in 2019 to gain more knowledge and experience in the makeup world! Working along side other artists and teaching the customers all about makeup was so much fun! I have been a self-employed make-up artist since late 2019, and I love my job more than ever and wouldn't change my journey at all.

Makeup is more than just colours to me — it’s a chance for people to step out of their everyday life and into something wonderful. It's a chance for me to express my passion. When I turn the mirror for my client to see the art I've created - that moment is priceless and gives me great pleasure!

Makeup is personal to each and  everyone, so I always make sure to match it to each individual client. I offer a variety of services, and use the best techniques and high-quality products that will last and look flawless!

While my makeup clientele has grown, I have also expanded my business into beauty thereapy. I have always had a strong passion for brows and lashes, so I knew that was something I wanted to offer my clients. I then found a huge love for hair extensions after having them fitted myself and loved how beautiful they made me feel so I wanted to add this skill to my belt. I am now fully qualified in brow & lash treatments and hair extensions, which is something I'm incredibly proud of. I only use high quality products for my treatments to achieve the best results for my clients! It's amazing how much confidence you can give someone by doing something you love!
