What is your most memorable wedding?
When my best friend got married and I was makeup artist and bridesmaid on the same day! I had to get my hair done whilst doing the makeup of another bridesmaid! It was all very hectic but incredibly fun!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't get caught up in what everyone else wants or expects from your day - make it your own!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The groom was a musician and wrote the piece of music for the bride to walk down the aisle. Safe to say everyone was in tears!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Through some email exchanges we can discuss what kind of look you want or if you have any pictures or ideas and how many people there would be, I can then provide you with a quote. I would ask for a deposit to secure the booking, and then we organise a trial date. You would always be more than welcome to contact me anytime up until the trial to discuss ideas. The makeup trial is the fun part where we can really get to know eachother and leave you with a finished Bridal look that leaves you at ease about how things will run on the day. We will liase closer to the time about all the logistics such as what time to arrive.
I am very flexible and used to brides changing their minds sometimes - I am happy and able to make any little tweaks or adjustments to your look until the moment you walk down the aisle!
Final step, you get married looking gorgeous!
What do you love most about your job?
I love helping women achieve the look they've always wanted, and seeing their faces light up when it all comes together on the day. It's really a wonderful moment.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Stay classic! If you don't normally wear a bright red lipstick, your wedding day shouldn't be the day to start. You want to look like the very best version of you!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Nothing is too much trouble on your day, so I will always be super relaxed, with a bit of lightheartedness. I'm a very outgoing individual so will keep chatting away.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I will always recommend what sort of products they need to stash in their bridesmaids purse to keep the makeup fresh. Fortunately most of that is down to me! I use products tailor made to your skin type to ensure longevity - but a little too up of lipstick and powder won't hurt!
