Make-up that I apply is designed to give you a perfect, long lasting look
Your wedding day is the most important, special and exciting day of your life and you will want to look and feel beautiful and confident all day long.
The Bridal make-up that I apply is designed to give you a perfect, long lasting look to be amazing both for your photographs and close up.
My work ethos when applying makeup is to be highly professional, apply beautiful make-up, provide high standards of customer care, reliability, following health and safety practices and codes of ethics and to work in a calm, relaxed and friendly manner. I use professional brush kits, and some of the best make-up ranges and products for your skin type and colours to best enhance your skin tone, hair and eye colour.
I take pride in my work, with attention to detail, ensuring each bride has an enjoyable make-up experience. I enjoy creating different make-up styles as wedding make-up can be natural and fresh or glamorous and celebrity inspired looks to vintage and smokey eyes, the list is endless. Even if you don’t usually wear make-up or wear very little, I will create a look tailored individually to you. All my make-up is designed to feel light, fresh and comfortable on so that you don't feel heavily made up.
I know all of your concerns, everything from covering blemishes and dark circles to needing waterproof mascara and have plenty in my kit to combat dark circles, open pores and redness too.
My Make-up kit contains a big range of products- everything from Mac, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Benefit, Estee Lauder and Bare Minerals through to Illamasqua, Make Up For Ever, NYX, Bourjois and Revlon to name just a few. I am freelance, so I hand pick and select the best products for their coverage, pigment, suitability and longevity ensuring that make-up will be picture-perfect for brides.This exclusive service is also available for the Bridal Entourage, enabling Bridesmaids, Mum’s and other guests to look and feel fabulous too.
To see some of my recent work please visit my facebook page.
I have a make-up style like most Make-up Artists do, hopefully by looking at my portfolios and photo shoots you can see that I have a flexible approach to creating a variety of looks.
However if you are after the latest Towie look with over the top contouring and more lashes than you know what to do with, I am not the Make-up Artist for you!
My style is to portray and enhance your natural beauty, creating the best version of you, creating sophisticated, elegant looks and timeless classic styles.
Consultation and Trial Appointment
I like to meet with my brides at least 6-8 weeks before the wedding date for a trial make-up appointment. I like to discuss and hear about your wedding ideas so it helps me build up an understanding of your personal style, choice and requirements.
At your appointment please have a few ideas and photos for the make-up styles you like, including pictures you have of your dress, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, hairstyles, wedding theme and moods.
We can then discuss your ideas of a perfect look for your wedding day, what and how you normally wear your make-up and I can offer plenty of advice and guidance to ensure the make-up will be your perfect look. I can also go through your current skincare regime and offer advice if needed to ensure your skin is in prime condition on the day of your wedding.
Once I have completed your make-up and we are 100% happy, I take photographs for reference and complete a make-up face chart with all of the details of the make-up and products I have used. This makes it easy to re-create your look on your wedding day.
I will also discuss make-up and general timings in detail for the day of the wedding, working out a schedule to remove any stresses, checking appointment locations, hair appointment details, time for getting changed, photographs and ceremony times, to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day.
Please allow up to two hours for this appointment.
Appointments are also available for Mum's, bridesmaids and other family members if required.
On your Wedding Day
I will visit you at home or at your wedding venue, so you will feel relaxed and ready for your big day. (No worrying about travelling to salons- worrying about the weather, parking and busy traffic!)
I will arrive punctually at the agreed time, bringing with me my make-up kit and equipment, including the make-up notes and records from your trial make-up appointment.
I will then check through my notes and photos from the trial appointment prepare your skin ready for make-up application, and apply the Bridal make-up, recreating your look.
Bridal make-up application takes me approx 45 minutes to an hour to apply and other members in the bridal party take approx 30-45 minutes.
Before I leave you, I will ensure that your make-up is perfect and apply any top ups of lipstick or gloss if needed.
