Full Description
Congratulations on your engagement and thank you so much for checking out my page. I get so excited for each wedding I work on as every client is unique. I'm always left feeling so happy and emotional when I see my brides all dressed up and glowing from outside and within. It's amazing to feel a part of that, knowing that I have helped towards making your day extra special - it is always an honour. I like to get to know my clients and ensure that they are getting the best service, tailored to suit them and their family. I also only use 100% cruelty free products too. So if you are looking for the likes of Mac and Estee Lauder etc then unfortunately I am not the makeup artist for you. Instead I use wonderful high end products from brands such as Illamasqua, Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Arbonne, Kiko Milano, Zoeva and Sara Hill. My brushes are also vegan friendly too. We need to look after our fluffy little friends don't we? My style of makeup can be adapted to suit what my clients want, however I am very well known for my natural looks. If you want skin to still look like skin, but also want your makeup to last all day and night, then I'm your girl. That's not to say I can't or won't do a heavier look for you - it is often a request from some of the younger bridesmaids who are used to wearing makeup often. Have a little look through some of my photos and you will get a feel for my style. On the day of your wedding I always make sure that my brides are relaxed and happy. Not only are they pampered but I also like to have a little fun with my brides - I like a bit of banter now and again. And why not, it's your wedding day!! It's just all so exciting and fun. I have been doing makeup for almost 20 years and have trained with top celebrity makeup artists in Scotland. So if you have reached reading this far and still want to know more then please get in touch. I'd love to hear from you. Debra

Best makeup artist EVER!!!
I cannot describe how amazing Debra is. Right from the start when I emailed her through to the very end. I never wear makeup so I was terrified of looking caked and not myself on my wedding day. Debra totally put me at ease (her gorgeous portfolio also helped me too) and I believed that she knew what I wanted. At the trial she helped me with my skin because it wasn't in the best condition, so on my wedding day it was lovely and soft. The makeup was so natural and elegant. I got so many compliments for my makeup and it lasted all day - I even still had it on at breakfast the next morning and still got compliments. Thank you so much!!

Debbie made a fantastic job on my bridal party. She was punctual, very professional and even gave us all tips on how to apply our own make up. I had 4 bridesmaids and they were stunning, my mother said she felt 10 years younger and she was delighted. Have to say my mum looked stunning. When I had my makeup Debbie knew exactly how to make my look natural and flawless, I felt like a princess. My makeup lasted all day and night. I can’t thank Debbie enough for making a perfect day even better. There are no words to describe how happy we all were. Highly, highly recommend. Thank you soo much Debbie xxx

Absolutely loved the experience
Debra did my make up on Saturday for our anniversary. Absolutely loved the experience. I went for a subtle smokey eye/ red lips look to go with my retro dress. Debra got exactly what I was looking for right away and I found the process very relaxing. I looked like me, only better lol. My makeup lasted all night too. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Debra. Professional and friendly service from booking to appointment. Great for that special occasion or if you just fancy being pampered

What is your most memorable wedding?

I could never pick just one wedding because all the weddings I work at are just amazing and simply unique. I am so fortunate to have always had such lovely and beautiful clients, I am incredibly lucky. So thank you very much xx

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Angelic, Classy, Elegant, Exquisite, Natural

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the fact that I took the leap to get out there and work for myself. It's opened so many doors and has introduced me to amazing people, many of whom have become fantastic friends. It's just about having the faith in yourself and others and taking a risk - one which has paid off.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Enjoy it. Don't get too wrapped up in the organisation and planning, yes it needs done, but at the end of the day it's about your relationship and your future together. Focus on what's important and don't stress out about the little things.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I tend to just meet and speak with the bride and her bridal party. I like to keep in touch with my brides and help them with skin care, giving tips on how to get that natural glow before the wedding. I'm virtually always available to answer questions and help as much as possible.

What do you love most about your job?

Meeting new people and getting to know them. Then seeing them on the most important day of their lives and seeing them so happy, especially after their makeup is done and they have their dress on. I've shed a proud tear a couple of times, it's almost like being a proud mum or sister!

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

LOTS of water and good sleep. It's the most important thing for your skin. Trust me!

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

This is a good question, and an important one. I never have the bride first or last, always second last. The bride normally has a lot to do on the morning of the wedding, so I let her get that out of the way whilst I work on other members of the bridal party. It's also the last hour when a bride feels most nervous. Having the bride second last means that they are getting to feel calm and pampered, relaxing them before that final hour emerges.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

The makeup I do will last all day, it's something which I am proud of. But in order to help, try not to touch or run your face. It's also handy to have the same lipstick so that you can top it up as and when you need it, but the rest of your makeup should certainly last.
