My name is Emma Riley I am a self-taught MUA from Nottinghamshire, originally trained as a beauty therapist. During the long months of Covid-19 lockdown, I felt the need to be creative, so I used my time wisely and started to create fantasy make-up looks inspired by various make-up artists. I now create my own designs, regularly featuring in magazines and receive regular gifted packages from cosmetic companies. ~ Emma Riley
