Perfect day !!!!!
I was put in touch with Sam by my own beautician who recommended airbrush make up for my wedding in Cyprus. She told me Sam was amazing and she wasn't wrong!! I was worried about my make up for my big day as most brides are but also as I suffer with melazma ( dark pigmentation patches) and wasn't sure how the airbrush would a) cover my areas of concern or b) would it last the whole day in the heat with out 'melting off' I got married on 11th September at 13.30pm outside and it was 42 degrees and my make up was flawless. It lasted all day, and I mean ALL DAY!! It looked amazing! Even at the end of the night it was still there! I felt amazing and I can't thank Sam enough for her time, professionalism and experience. The coverage was fantastic, not a blemish in sight. It felt weightless against my skin like I had nothing on. It stayed exactly where is was meant to and I didn't look shiny after a few hours of being in the sun. I look back at my photos and wondered how I didn't look a sweaty mess in the heat. I would recommend airbrush make up to any bride but especially those who are getting married in hot countries but I would only recommend Sam to do it. Her knowledge, patience and experience is second to none and I really can't thank her enough for making my bridesmaid and I feel beautiful all day.

Brilliant make up artist
Sam was absolutely brilliant on my wedding day she did my make up and other members of the bridal party and she was an absolute perfectionist. She put me as ease and even ended up helping do up my maid of honours dress to help , I couldn’t have asked for anyone better

The makeup lasted all day
Sam did a fantastic job on my wedding makeup. We had a couple of trials were she worked out exactly what I wanted, even though I did not know myself! I am 44 years old, so I was not the usually youthful bride, Sam gave me skin care tips on the run up to my wedding, which greatly improved the condition of my skin on the day. Most importantly the make up lasted all day and has really enhanced my photographs. Can not rate her professionalism and skills highly enough.

Over the moon with the results
I used Samantha for my sons wedding. I was extremely pleased with the way my makeup was applied and over the moon with the results. The makeup was flawless and I received many compliments. Samantha was informative in what she was applying to my face, and it didn't need touching up at all during the evening apart from my lipstick. I would highly recommend Samantha to anyone.

What is your most memorable wedding?

I like to meet all of my brides a few times before the wedding. Typically I will arrange a skincare plan and guide during the consultation. As I offer pre wedding treatments such as gel manicures, brow and lash treatments it's a nice way to build up a relationship. I get to know my brides and like to know that they feel at ease on the day.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Enjoy yourself and don't feel pressured or stressed. It's such an exciting time and remember it's about you two, no one else.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Family photos

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

Elegant, natural, perfectionist, chic, professional.

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

Every wedding is different. I love meeting brides and helping them to achieve their vision.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Look after your skin. Start having regular facials and drink lots and lots of water. Check out my upcoming blog for more hints and tips.

What do you love most about your job?

I have quite a calming influence on people. I don't know what it is that I do but I've never had a stressed bride.

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

My little sister's

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

Try not to touch your face too much. The makeup I use will withstand temperatures of around 40'c so you can relax without having to touch up. Drink through a straw when you can.

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

I recently worked with Marco Antonio as his assisting make-up artist...ultimate highlight!
