- Make up by Joanna Daines offers a freelance make up service to brides and their bridal party on their big day. Products used are all high quality and include Estée Lauder, Bobbi Brown and Mac cosmetics. Having worked in the cosmetics industry for over 7 years prior to going freelance, I have acquired a whole host of skills and knowledge which I apply to my work and being a qualified beauty therapist also enables me to advise on a skincare regime to ensure beautiful skin on the day of your wedding. Being married myself, I understand the importance of not only looking as you have imagined but also being put at ease and comfortable on your wedding morning, which is why I provide a "friendship" approach to my work, really taking the time to connect with my brides and be a part of the day. I always stays until the bride is in her wedding dress (as long as this is ok) to ensure that everything is perfect before leaving and prides myself on my attention to detail and professionalism throughout.
