Charlene was born in 1983 in South East London and whilst growing up in the 90's, she was strongly influenced by the iconic Fashion and Music scene of that era.
After studying at London College Of Fashion and Central Saint Martins, she went on to work for some of the most high profile Model and Photographic Agencies in London such as Premier, Select and Streeters. This gave Charlene an insight into the creative world of Make Up and enabled her to build strong relationships across the Fashion Industry.
Charlene started to assist some of the most iconic Make Up Artists in the industry such as Val Garland, Diane Kendal, Gucci Westman, Hannah Murray and Kirstin Piggott on shows in London, Paris and New York, which has made a huge impact on her own Make Up career.
Through assisting Charlene has worked with clients such as Max Factor, Vogue, Hapers Bazaar, Matthew Williamson, i-D Magazine, Monsoon, X Factor, Marie Claire Magazine, The Guardian, Tank Magazine, Agent Provocateur Campaigns, Cosmopolitan Magazine and Music Artists such as Cheryl Cole, Kelly Rowland, Pixie Lott and Florence + The Machine.
Whilst Charlene is assisting, she is concentrating on building up her own portfolio and clientele within the Fashion and Music areas, to make her own mark within the industry.
