Full Description
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.

Lauren is an amazing make up artist. She created beautiful looks for myself, 3 bridesmaids and even squeezed my mum in last min. She put me completely at ease and tweaked my look on the day from the trial so it was perfect for me.

Secret Surprise Wedding
I got told to buy a dress, that was all. I never had any idea about when or where it would happen and I didn’t know until I arrived at the venue the day before. My now husband had organised everything including flowers, hair and make up. Lauren had never met or spoken to me before though I understand she had been sent a couple of photos. I am useless at make up myself and so rarely wear it, therefore was unable to really tell Lauren what I wanted or like other than to not over do it as I don’t like the feel of make up on my skin. Also, usually (on the rare occasion I do wear it) I forget, rub my eyes and resemble a Marilyn Manson wannabe!! Lauren was brilliant and talked me through everything that she was doing and what products she was going use. She gave me choices but I let her have complete free reign as I quite frankly have no clue when it comes to make up. Lauren completely took her time, was really relaxed during the process and I found her to be just a genuine nice, friendly person. She even hung around with the photographer to help me get in my dress as I was there on my own (no one else invited - that created a s@&t storm but that’s another story!) I was so pleased with the end result and felt a million dollars, what more can you ask for and the fact she was doing it without any prior trial or any discussions with me, I think is a major credit to her and just shows her ability. Would definitely recommend - Thank you so much

Amazing make up somebody by a true professional.
I fully trusted Lauren to do my make up for my mother in laws wedding.... however it surpassed even my great expectations. The quality of make up and the application was amazing and it lasted all day, even when stood next to a roaring fire!!! It’s the extra bits though that showed Lauren for the true professional she is. Having to apply the make up whilst my two year old was rummaging through the bags and the 5 year old was asking constant questions... and still my eyeliner was straighter than I could have ever done it myself!!!! I would recommend Lauren to anyone for a big event or their big day.

My special day!
Lauren, thank you so much for Sunday. You were amazing, obviously my make up was stunning and I felt like a million dollars but you also made me feel relaxed, we had a laugh and you were just what I needed on the day! Everyone commented on my makeup and I’m so thankful! If I ever need my makeup doing again for events I will give you a call! Xxx

What is your most memorable wedding?

After our initial contact we will arrange a time for a chat about your favourite looks, any concerns you might have, types of makeup etc. Once we have spoken we will arrange a date for a preview of your wedding look where we will trial as many looks as we need until we find the perfect one for you. After the trial you can contact us as much or as little as you like to discuss any wedding updates, schedule changes etc. If you would like us to, we will work with your other suppliers to create a wedding day schedule that meets with your needs so that everything works to the timeline you want. On the day itself we will come to your chosen venue and recreate your perfect look so that as you walk down the aisle you feel elegant, radiant, confident and most importantly, like you.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

As an experienced makeup artist I have seen most potential problems on a wedding morning. With experience comes calm and a makeup bag filled with some non makeup additions like, a sewing kit (I have sewn brides into their gowns once or twice), scissors, paracetamol and more.

Working with brides and their friends and family on the/one of the most important days of their life.

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

Natural, flawless, effortless, luxury, unique

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

The bride being held up by her hairdresser and only having 20 minutes for makeup! We still created a fab look.

On the months before your wedding make sure you are kind to yourself and your skin. Drink lots of water and moisturise everyday.
