Looking good in lockdown

ART, sculpture and the natural world inspire the work of Dumfries make up artist Chloe Fuller.

She likes to push the boundaries and experiment with colour and design and has spent lockdown honing her skills. The pandemic has given her a chance to try out some new ideas and she has been showing off a range of eye catching looks on social media.

From rainbows and animal print, to clouds and neon, Chloe is not afraid to be big and bold. She said: “I’m inspired by a lot of abstract work, whether it be make up, painting, sculptures, etc, as they are different from the norm and push the boundaries, a bit like my personality! “My favourite make up styles have to be abstract or runway as they are unique and exciting. “I love to put contrasting colours together in a make up look and I very rarely work with neutrals on myself as I feel colour represents me as a person.”

Although make up has always interested her, she initially moved to Glasgow to study nursing, but said: “I left my course after a couple of months as I knew it wasn’t what I wanted to do and I’ve been practising make up ever since.” Up to January Chloe had been employed at Base Beauty and Make Up for two years and then decided to take the plunge and set up on her own. She said: “I probably picked the wrong year to set up my business as not long after I was trading, lockdown was put into place!”

However, she has been using the quieter time to turn her spare room into a studio and she added: “I have spent most of the time just practising different make up techniques and perfecting them for when I can finally see my beautiful clients again.”
