My make-up stayed on till late, it looked natural and looked nice on the pics. The make-up artist listened to what I wanted, explained it all step by step, I ended up with exactly what I wanted.

All 7 of us looked stunning
I met with Nikki at Facebar London for my make up trial 48 hours before my wedding, and her experience, passion and attention to detail was immediately obvious. She really took the time to ask me about my skin, my dress, my wedding plans and the look I had in mind, before putting together a look for me. The look was gorgeous, and she even managed to make my difficult skin look perfect, glowy and somehow like wasn't wearing much makeup at all! On the big day she and Nohelia turned up and set about making all 7 of us look stunning - even though each member of my bridal party had a different skin tone, and wanted a different look! They were both so calm and a joy to work with, I wouldn't hesitate to book in with Facebar London again.

The entire experience was awesome
Facebar London did my makeup for my wedding day and it was amazing! The entire experience was awesome - very relaxing vibes, amazing makeup and advice. I can be particularly fussy and my makeup artist listened to exactly what I wanted, with some of her own tips. I'll be back!

Beautifully applied and lasted all day
Facebar did the make up for my wedding in December. We had a trial the week before and then on the day, my makeup artist did make up for me, my sister, sister in law and future mother-in-law, all surrounded by complete chaos and children running around. Our artist remained totally calm and focussed throughout. She dealt brilliantly with all the many different personalities on display. The make up was beautifully applied and lasted all day. I only wish I could do my eyes as she did them. Lovely products and all very soothing. Highly recommend

First rate service!
I was blown away by Facebar's professionalism when doing my bridal make up and make up for 4 bridesmaids just over a week ago. Despite the pre-wedding chaos my artist kept calm and maintained an excellent standard of work as well as explaining make up tips to the 5 of us as she was working. She even kept her cool when my skin went crazy as a result of a different skin toner I had been using in the lead up to the wedding. My artist whipped out some soothing cream which had my angry, red skin back to its happy self in minutes. My make up received compliments all day and survived from midday to midnight and dancing all night without any need for a touch up, which is a first! I would and have been recommending Facebar, and I will definitely be back for a tutorial. First rate service!

What is your most memorable wedding?

A fabulous London based client hired the Facebar team for her two ceremonies which were taking place in New York and in Sicily. Our brides' brief was for us to create stunning, fresh, modern make-up looks for the actual ceremony days and also more glamorous looks for her evening receptions. Planning for the wedding begun a year before, where consultations took place where we designed and trialled several different makeup looks before the bride made her final decisions on the looks she wanted. We created mood boards, selected the best products for our bride to use and gave the bride a customised skincare regime to follow, including product recommendations for her to use in the crucial months leading up to the ceremony dates. It was incredibly rewarding for us to be there to see our bride enjoying every moment of her two stunning ceremonies and a real pleasure for Facebar to create the make-up.

We design stunning makeup looks to enhance your natural beauty and features, resulting in you feeling amazing and confident. It's very rewarding for us to see, clients often tell us that they can't stop looking at themselves with their new makeup look!

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

Get your skin looking amazing and you will look and therefore feel your very best on your special day! But how? By drinking plenty of water (boring, but so true!), using the right skincare products and making sure that your skin is well hydrated (regardless of your skin type) - this is absolutely vital for achieving flawless and long-lasting makeup. Our makeup artist secret tip is using Rodin Face Oil in the lead up to your wedding day, it is a must if you want gorgeous, glowing skin!

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

As professional makeup artists we are experts in making our clients feel fully relaxed from the moment they sit in our makeup chair. So whether our client is a model about to do a shoot or show, an actress who is about to walk the red carpet, a client going on a first date, or indeed a bride on her wedding day (yes, we know that this is probably the most nerve-racking event of them all!) we are able to relax our bride right from the off, beginning with our deeply relaxing facial massage which is followed by the light touch of our artists' brush, so by the time the bride looks in the mirror she knows she's physically and mentally ready to walk down that aisle!

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

Get your maid of honour to carry a mini-retouching makeup kit for you. This should include a few blotting papers to remove any shine from the t-zone, a few cup-tips and of course the lip colour / gloss you are wearing for a fast touch up - you'll be kissing lots of people and sipping champagne, so a little touch-up a few hours in is a good idea. All of these items can easily be carried in a small clutch.
