Claudia Lucia Creative Expansion – Bristol Makeup, Stylist & Body Artist

Hello, it has certainly been a while!  I can’t believe this year will be 17 years I’ve been a freelance makeup artist and can truly say it’s flown by. The industry has definitely changed,; it goes without saying the impact of  social media has had in how we all communicate. Coming from the old school, pre-digital age, I can just about keep up!

Being a creative, I love exploring other avenues and challenging myself. I’ve recently returned to my fashion/styling roots and expanded to Visual Merchandising Design. I’m throughly enjoying this new creativity, along side my makeup and body art. My main client  is Tailored Flooring, on Chandos Road, Bristol, a high end  flooring supplies. With the opening of their new showroom last year, this has given me the opportunity to showcase their beautiful, high quality products. Also to come, my entry of Body Factory at the stunning Eden Project.

Latest video ‘Cigana’ by Claudia Aurora

Set in the grounds of an idyllic cottage – wait for it – in Combeinteighhead, Devon, is the home of a beautifully redesigned 1930?s Gypsy Caravan. This was the core inspiration for Claudia Aurora’s latest video, ‘Cigana’ which means gypsy in Portuguese.

www.claudia-aurora.com Claudia’s latin looks made it an easy canvas for me to create a soft sultry look, with an elegant feel. Along with Claudia’s perfect choice of wardrobe, although her gorgeous, tightly fitted corset wasn’t the most comfortable after 7 hours, and of course a bit of gold bling, she became a latina Cigana.
