Describe your typical process with a couple.
For the bride I will find out all the details I need about the wedding. Dates, times, locations and numbers. Then, at the trial we will talk about your dress, themes and colours and then go through any requests you have. I love Pinterest so create some boards of hair and makeup styles you love, keeping it realistic for you. I will then create a look based on what things you love, paying special attention to features you love and the ones you don't!
I won't leave your trial until you are 100% happy! I keep in touch right up until the wedding day, and then the magic begins!
What do you love most about your job?
I work with an amazing range of women, have made friends and sometimes really touched people's lives; whether it be a last minute wedding for a family member to attend or an emotional one where family are sometimes missing. I feel honoured to do the job I do.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Look after your skin! Drink water, get enough sleep, exfoliate and moisturise!
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I tend to notice when brides get nervous. They get quieter and I often hear the big deep breath in whilst doing their makeup. I often ask the room to be calm to allow for some quiet time and I'll always pick a room away from the hustle and bustle if its possible. A glass of bubbly normally helps too!
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Try to keep your hands away from the face and hair. If the tears run, Dab don't Wipe!
Have one your bridal party keep hold of your lipstick and a touch up powder.
