- Hello, I'm Ali and I specialise in bridal hair & makeup. I split my time between Bath & London, & trained in makeup for photographic work. After working as an artist with MAC cosmetics once I finished training, I assisted a bridal MUA and realised how much I love weddings! I've worked at hundreds now, and enjoy working with each bridal party to create hair & makeup to suit every individual wedding I am part of. I use vegan, cruelty free cosmetics from a range of both luxury and high street brands...I'm a total makeup hoarder, and love to try all the new product launches. When I'm not out working with my clients, I also do beauty writing and some photography (so am always happy to discuss packages including hair, makeup & photos too).
