Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once you have made an enquiry I will come back to you with a detailed quote based on the number of people in your wedding party requiring makeup and your location. If you are happy with the quote the next step in to book in a trial this takes approx 2 hours. We will try out different lip colours, eyeshadows, lashes etc until you are 100% happy with your wedding day look. A non refundable booking fee then needs to be paid to secure the date and the remaining balance is due the week of your wedding. On the day I arrive with plenty of time scheduled in and will work with your Hair dresser to create a 'rota' so everyone know what time they are needed for hair and makeup.
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love doing makeup and it does not feel like work to me. To be part of someones special day or occasion is such a lovely experience and when the look is complete it is fantastic to see people smile and feel beautiful and confident.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
I always advise my brides to stay classic and timeless with their makeup, and not to follow trends on their wedding day. You want to be able to still look back on your wedding pictures in years to come and love the way that you looked. Ask your artist to just create the best version of you… that will look great and professional on camera.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
You and your bridal party are going to spend a good chunk of your wedding morning with your Makeup Artist so you need to find someone you get along with. I am a relaxing and calming influence on your day allowing you to ‘check out’ of the preparations for an hour and be pampered. I am organised and punctual… and play a role in keeping your wedding morning running to schedule and often get involved in more than just makeup… my kit contains, tissues, spare hair grips, a needle and thread, safety pins, nail varnish remover etc etc… I can spring to your aid for almost anything that occurs. I have been described a one of my Brides as 'The calm amongst the Storm'
