Full Description
What makes me different to other Makeup Artists? • An amazing kit of high end products - Giorgio Armani, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, NARs, Laura Mercier - to name a few! • One Bridal Party booking a day - I won't be dashing off to another Bridal party or insisting I apply your makeup earlier than required to leave for another job. I will be there until you are ready to leave so I can be there for a final powder and lipstick check... Plus I want to see you in THE dress! • Professional, friendly service - making you feel comfortable & at ease throughout your Bridal preparation. • No minimum booking number requirements - if your Bridesmaids don't fancy their make up doing on the wedding morning I won't insist on a minimum number to qualify to book me as your makeup artist. • A makeup look thats for you and bespoke to how you want your makeup to feel & look on your special day.

I felt like a million dollars!
“Sarah is amazing! I booked her for my wedding last weekend and from meeting her at the trial to the moment she left on the morning I felt completely at ease with her. She did an brilliant job with everyones makeup, listening to what was wanted and making recommendations were she thought they were needed. The makeup stayed flawless all day and I felt like a million dollars. Was so sad to take it off at bedtime. Everyone kept saying how chilled I was on the morning but this was massively down to having great people around me who kept the atmosphere calm. Even when we needed to pick the pace up a little towards the end I never felt like Sarah was rushing or any less relaxed. Just wish I went to more events so I could have my makeup done by her on a regular basis. x”

I found her very friendly and easy to talk to.
“Sarah did my make up for my wedding back in June. I managed to choose the hottest day in June in the last century to get married. However my make up still looks great in all my wedding photos. I had such a fun time at my wedding trial. Trying different products and asking Sarah general tips and advice too. I met Sarah at a wedding fair and instantly I found her very friendly and easy to talk to. On the morning of the wedding she was on time, very professional, kept everyone calm and was very sensitive and understanding to all the crazy emotions that can come on your wedding day. I couldn’t recommend Sarah highly enough.”

Sarah did a fantastic job!
I would highly recommend Sarah! She did a fantastic job of my Bridesmaid’s make up, my mum and myself! The make up trial was great as Sarah really listened and understood what I wanted and built up the make up until I was happy with what I saw. The make up she uses is also great quality. It really lasted well into the evening. Thank you Sarah!

I can’t recommend Sarah highly enough!
I had the pleasure of Sarah doing my makeup for my wedding day. She was very friendly and put me at ease and made me feel very pampered.The makeup was flawless and stayed on all night with only my lipstick that I needed to reapply. Everyone commented on how lovely I looked. I can’t recommend Sarah highly enough.

Sarah is so professional and knowledgeable about make up.
I cannot thank Sarah enough for the amazing job she did of mine and my mums make up on my wedding day! Sarah is so professional and knowledgeable about make up. She really listened when I told her what look I wanted to achieve and she did a great job of creating it. I also trusted her completely if she suggested an alternative and I was never disappointed with what she came up with! She was very patient with me when trying to find the right lip colour for the day. She had too many choices! She could instantly tell if I was uncomfortable with something (I’m not a big fan of my eyebrows) and she had suggestions on how to make me feel comfortable on the day. My skin was being really temperamental in the run up to the wedding and Sarah did a great job of covering it up and reducing my redness. I’ve already started recommending Sarah to everyone bride to be I come across not just because of her talents as a make up artist but also because of how lovely she is. You want to be surrounded by people who will keep you calm on the morning of your wedding and Sarah is just that person! Thank you again Sarah!

Sarah Capell MUA Review
Having Sarah as my make up artist for my wedding was such an amazing experience. During my trial she made me feel relaxed, she understood my personal style and has so many great hints and tips that me and my mum both improved our own make up routine because of it. I loved having Sarah there on the morning of the wedding, she was so friendly and such a calming influence in the room. My make up made me feel beautiful and confident and my husband even commented on it! Thank you Sarah, your expertise, experience and presence helped to make me feel really special on my wedding day.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classic, Beautiful, Natural, Stunning & Romantic

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am most proud that my dream of becoming a Makeup Artist, which seemed completely unattainable has come true! I worked really hard, put the hours of research in, trained and kept building on my knowledge and soon realised I could make it work. Less than a year later I was running my very own business in something that I am so passionate about.

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

Pick your suppliers based on gut instinct. Recommendations are GREAT but only if they sit well with you both as well. Pick suppliers that you click with, relate too and ones that you love the work of. Don't feel pressured into having someone because your told they were 'good' follow your heart & style too.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Depending on how you come across my services - either meeting me at a wedding fayre, finding me on social media or via my website - whichever comes first I pride myself on being friendly & professional from the off. If we meet face to face or have initial contact via email or phone I will firstly confirm whether I can commit to your wedding date or not. I love any wedding detail so naturally asking about your wedding venue and where you will be getting married comes next! In my initial correspondence confirmation of what I will offer to your special day is key - so you can make sure I sound like the right lady for the job! As many Brides book me months & months in advance it is often a little while before we speak again but around 3/4 months before the wedding date I contact you to book you in for your Bridal Trial. The trial is the perfect time for me to ask you even more questions about your wedding day, get to know you & of course discuss and put together your desired gorgeous bridal look that is unique to you. Between the trial and wedding day I would have regular correspondence with you confirming the time I will be arriving, perhaps discussing the order of other members of the Bridal party for makeup on the wedding morning & if required discussing these timings or arrangements with your hairstylist. Of course that then brings us to the day of the wedding! Arriving on time and professionally dressed with all my kit and chair in hand I set off to work, enjoying the company of your Bridal party and of course you! I only book one wedding per day so I will be there to see you in your dress, do the final lipstick check and wave you off onto the best day ever!

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing my clients look in the mirror & just smile with pure delight as they completely love what you've done & how you've made them look like the most beautiful version of themselves.

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

Skin Prep beforehand is key! Get into a great skin care regime months before your wedding day - own your regime & own beautiful skin!

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

For me its all about timing - I ensure I have your makeup completed way ahead of the time you expected - this way there is no time stress due to makeup!

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

I think looking great is about having confidence that starts from inside you which then glows outwardly. I love Estee Lauder's quote "Be Strong. Be Confident. Be The Star Of Your Own Life" - Looking great throughout your wedding day is smiling, enjoying yourself & dancing with your new partner like no-one is watching! Do that & you will look amazing (not just great!) all day.
