"I am a two-time Academy Award winner and have been in the business for nearly 20 years. Covering film, fashion and commercials. I have worked with and hired many makeup artists.
I only mention this as I would highly recommend Claire Roddie to do any job you require of her as a Makeup Artist.
I hired Claire to work with us on location in Dubai for “Mission Impossible 4”. No matter what task I put before her she preformed it perfectly. This was a demanding shoot with many characters all with different makeups.
Claire is a talented makeup artist with a wonderful personality, and works with grace, speed and a light touch with the Actors. She understands direction quickly, and is a team player.
Personally I would not hesitate to work with Claire again!"
Michelle Burke, Oscar winning Make up Artist
I am a professional photographer based in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and have been working here since 2006. I have worked professionally in the industry since 1984 undertaking projects for many corporations and multinationals across the globe.
As a result of my business I have worked with Claire Roddie on many projects and have known her personally for many years.
At all times I have found Claire to be dependable, hard working, conscientious and a true professional and because of this Claire is one of the most highly regarded creative stylists in the industry here in the UAE. Claire is a great asset to the industry and is highly regarded for her work.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Claire Roddie, professional make up artist, who i have worked with on a number of projects since 2010 while based in Dubai, UAE.
Claire is well known and respected amongst the film industry as someone you can rely on to help with your production. She is able to create any look you brief her on and conducts herself in a professional and timely manor. She is my first choice make up artist for any project.
Claire has shown her expertise and broad knowledge of the techniques required as a make up artist. She is able to work with professional actors as well as everyday people.
We have worked on a number of projects together, including Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocal, which was filmed in Dubai in 2010, whereby Claire worked on a number of high profile Hollywood stars. She worked on a production for Zain, Saudi Arabia, applying the make up to amateur actors, helping achieve the Arabic look, as well as on a Stock Library photo shoot for Mubadala, where may of Mudadala's employees were used instead of actors.
Claire's professionalism, experience of different regions, and her knowledge as a whole will be an exceptional addition not only to any project she works on, but to the Make-up industry as a whole, wherever she is based.
