At Makeup by Lauren Poole we want to ensure that as you walk down the aisle you feel the perfect, flawless version of yourself. We achieve this by working closely with you from the moment you get in contact with us. In our initial call we will discuss the looks that you have in mind and any concerns you might have. We will then arrange a preview of your wedding look through a trial at our dedicated makeup studio just outside of Manchester. The preview is just like trying dresses, we will make changes until you are completely happy that the look we have created is perfect for you. After the preview we will work with you as closely as you want us to up to your wedding day. We will even liaise with your other chosen suppliers, should you want us to, to make sure that the hours before your vows run like clock work to a schedule you have approved. On the day itself we will come to your chosen venue and work with you (and your bridal party) and recreate your perfect look. We bring the studio to you so you don't have to worry about a thing. We also come armed with a few non makeup essentials, a sewing kit for example, that we have learnt over time are often useful on a wedding morning! Relax, we've got it covered.
