With over 10 years working in the makeup industry and 5 of those working for MAC Cosmetics, I have invested time and money on knowing what products to have in my kit and keeping up with the current makeup trends. My experience has taught me that 1 look does definetly not suit all. Whether that’s supepr natural or super glam, my job is to help you find a style that will help you beam and make you feel beautiful. Bridal makeup is my forte, and I love being a part of someone’s special day and helping it run smoothly. From the first time we meet at your trial, to coming to help you get ready when the day finally arrives, I am always there to lend an ear to any ideas, questions or even concerns. Looking forward to hearing from you x

What is your most memorable wedding?
I absolutely love weddings. There’s always a really fun, bubbly atmosphere when you arrive. Everyone’s excited and that’s the memory that stays with me.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
I love all styles of makeup...!!! Glam, natural, soft, beautiful, YOU! X
What about your business are you most proud of?
I’m a people person, I love chatting and trying to know people and I think this helps put peoples mind at rest and relaxes them.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
As wedding favours for all the female guests, the bride gave them a MAC lipstick each that was left at the tables for them! X
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I would say the trial is the most important part... meeting each other and having a good chat to what ideas you have. Getting to know each other is quite important so we can come communicate with each other. After we come up with your look, I always keep in touch with the bride before the day... I’m always thinking of them and making sure I help the day run smoothly.
What do you love most about your job?
Creating a look personalised for the bride. Whether that has come from ideas from the bride, or left to me to create, it’s about tuning in and listening.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Take care of your skin. Really invest in some quality products before your wedding, and keep on board with your water intake. It honestly makes the biggest difference to how your makeup will look.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Giving the bride time to chill, grab a glass of prosecco and enjoy the process. Timing is key, and rushing is a no go.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I only ever use high end brands such as MAC, Tom Ford, Nars, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown and many more.... No touch ups would need to be down throughout the day, but I always recommend having a lipstick handy to reapply if need be
