What is your most memorable wedding?
I have so many! Some for all the wrong reasons, but I do get emotional still even after so many weddings.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, but flawless. Playing up the eyes. Makeup that will stay. Calm and relaxed personality.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love that I have so many people who now recommend me, from wedding suppliers to guests at a wedding I did and people who have seen my work.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember whats it all about, as you can get bogged down with all the little things you can forget why you are doing it. Enjoy it and have a great day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love seeing what the groom has bought for the bride. One groom went outside the apartment at 5 am and wrote in the sand I love you! Now thats romantic.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I usually email until we meet for the trial. This is where I go through everything from timings to the look and recommended lipstick and any other makeup for the day. This is usually 2-3 months before the wedding. Then I see them again on the day unless they want to change the makeup for any reason.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing how amazed the bride is when she looks at herself in front of the mirror, especially if they well up, which starts us all off.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Have a facial at least 6 month before the wedding and then each month. If your skin looks good your makeup will too.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
I have a relaxed personality, so I talk calmly to her, without asking her too much. I allow her some space to have a think and chill while she is having her makeup, as this can be the last thing she has done before she puts the dress on.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
Some translucent powder to top up throughout the day will help. Have your lipstick handy, but relax and enjoy yourself, as your makeup will not go anywhere.
