Makeup by Katy is Luxury Bridal Make-up. As an experienced makeup artist my skill is versatility. I don’t have a ‘signature look’ instead each bride gets a bespoke look that is perfect for them.

Full Description
I’ve been a makeup artist for 22 years and have focused solely on bridal makeup for the past ten. Bridal makeup is my passion and everyone who sits in my chair gets the VIP treatment. My aim is to make every bride look like the absolute best version of themselves, rather than fitting them into a ‘look’ or a trend. I specialise in Flawless complexions, whether you feel your skin is perfect or not. Everyone

Katy worked pure magic on our wedding day!
Katy worked pure magic on our wedding day! She was such a calming person to have around and really helped the morning preparations go to plan, which was especially helpful as we had to change venue halfway through getting ready. Katy's make-up made me feel amazing which set the tone for an incredible day. We’re so glad we found Katy and wish her every success in the future. If you are considering Katy for your wedding day, don't hesitate!

Make-up was immaculate and stayed on all day
Katy did my make-up for my wedding and I'm so, so glad I chose her. My make-up was immaculate and stayed on all day. Natural looking so still looked like me - but the best possible version of me!

Beautiful, confident bride!
What can I say other than Katy made me feel utterly gorgeous on the most special day of my life. During my make up trial, Katy recommend some amazing skin products that would help improve the condition and appearance of my skin, and the results on the day was stunning. I feel so confident and so beautiful - and I can't thank you enough! Would without hesitation recommend Katy x

FAQ

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Versatile, thorough, elegant, professional, friendly

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

Budget realistically. Do research with actual vendors before setting your budget rather than following the 'suggested spend' in bridal magazines. They are often so wildly off the mark, you will be left disappointed and short of budget where you need it most!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Typically my brides book me just after their venue and photographer and secure the date. We tend to have a practice run quite early on to really get the best idea of what we are doing. ~I'm happy to talk via skype/on the phone first if a couple want to get to know me before a trial also

What do you love most about your job?

The smiles I get when the bride sees herself in the mirror after I complete her make-up.

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

Take care of your skin. Not just in the week or two before the wedding, at the very least 6 months before.

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

I'm super organised and very calm, I don't faff and I can politely ward off people around her who are feeding her nerves.

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

Get yourself a good makeup and hair artist!
