Full Description
How lucky am I to be able to do a job I love? Being invited to be a part of someone's special day surrounded by friends, family and lots of laughs is such a privilege! I've been working in cosmetics for about 25 years and have met so many amazing people along the way...some of which have become life long friends. Whether you like full on glam or don't wear much make up and want a natural glow, I like to let your natural beauty show through. I have some beauty treatments available from my home studio... Semi permanent lashes, brows, lash lift & tint, CND shellac manicure I'm also well practised at opening champagne, doing up dresses and chasing away wasps. When I'm not weilding a makeup brush and glamming people up, I love being outdoors and spending time with my family and Buster our yellow Lab. I'm also a little bit obsessed with keeping fit, but I like to balance it out with my love of cake and gin! If you have any questions, get in touch or call me for a chat. I update my facebook page and blog with all my recent weddings so pop over and have a peek..... Speak to you soon... Jules xx

Amazing
Jules did both mine and my mums makeup for my wedding and we couldn't recommend her enough! Jules is professional, friendly and amazing at what she does. I had so many comments about my makeup and it lasted all day. I would definitely recommend Jules to anyone looking for a makeup artist.

Absolutely flawless
Julie did my bridal makeup, mother of the bride, 3 bridesmaids and my little flower girl - we all looked and felt amazing. Julie instantly put us all at ease and is a very professional and talented woman. We all looked very natural. She stayed long after completing our make-up and helped me get into my dress and with final adjustments and only left once we were were safely inside the venue. I thoroughly recommend Julie for anyone looking for a make-up artist for that special occasion because she will make sure you look and feel a million dollars on your special day. Thank you xxx

Best day of my life
Julie is absolutely amazing and made myself, my bridesmaids and my Mam look beautiful! Julie is so professional but then so friendly and you can be so relaxed around her! She even supported me when I broke down in tear half way through her doing my make up! I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to do our make up! She’s just brilliant!

Nervous bridesmaid
I was very nervous about having my makeup done when I was a bridesmaid. I usually don't wear a lot. Julie made me feel very comfortable and did out makeup individually to how we each felt comfortable. Make up lasted all day and night and everyone looked lovely. Thank you x

My daughter's wedding
Highly recommend Julie for any an occasion when needing a make up artist. She is so down to earth but also very professional. Julie stayed right up until the very end for those extra added touch ups! Couldn't think of anyone else to join us on this special day. Everyone looked beautiful and she even added in a little bit of laughter by nearly falling out of the patio windows when tears were being shed by all! Will definitely use Julie again x

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

The most chilled and relaxed wedding that took place in a field next to a grandparents home in The Gower which had been used for summer holidays growing up. It was full of friends and family coming and going all morning and just has such an amazing relaxed feel which definitely rubbed off on the Bride.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classic Sophisticated Glamorous Calm Relaxed

What about your business are you most proud of?

I'm so proud of the fact I have been running my own business for the last 15 years doing something that makes me happy. I always go to work with a smile on my face because I love my job and all the gorgeous people I get to meet.

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

The calmest brides I've seen have been the most organised. Use your bridesmaids wisely....give them jobs in advance for the morning of the wedding to keep things calm. Also, it always takes longer than you think to get into your dresses, so leave plenty of time and having someone to help with this who isn't going to the wedding is a life saver

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I always love handmade gifts and weddings where friends and family members have contributed to the wedding in one way or another... be it making the cake, doing the flowers or making dresses.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I mainly deal with the bride and her bridal party but its always lovely to meet the other half! If I haven't previously met at a wedding fayre, I usually meet up first of all at the make up trial run where we can discuss make up looks, timings and go through any questions the bride has.

What do you love most about your job?

I love making people smile! Its so lovely to be invited to help someone get ready for such a special day.

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

Don't try anything new a few weeks before the wedding and don't have your eyebrows waxed the day before the wedding....the skin needs a few days to heal and calm down.

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

I like to do the brides make up about an hour or so before shes due to get dressed as this is when the stress levels can start to rise . So its nice to be sat in the chair relaxing, having your face made up with a glass of bubbly chatting about honeymoon....this is the brides time to leave everyone else do the running around for last minute tasks.

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

Good skincare before the wedding day will help prepare the skin ready for make up. It will make the base stay flawless all day. Along with primers and setting spray. The one thing I always recommend to have to hand is a lip colour to touch up with through the day. There's a lot of eating, drinking and kissing to be done! Also blotting sheets are a must in a Summer wedding.... they blot away any shine and oil but leave the make up on the face.
