Steph made me feel so comfortable
Steph did the makeup for myself, two bridesmaids and mother of the bride for my wedding back in February. I had my trial beforehand and Steph made me feel so comfortable and at ease. She showed me her portfolio with a range of different makeup styles and discussed with me what look I was going for. She explained everything as she was applying the makeup. Having never had anyone else do my makeup before I thought it would be a bit uncomfortable and strange, but it wasn't at all. It was a really enjoyable experience. When Steph had finished and showed me in the mirror I was amazed, it was absolutely flawless and was exactly what we had discussed that I wanted to go for. When it came to the wedding day I had already spoken to Steph a number of times, so felt comfortable with her and it was really nice to have someone so friendly to do my makeup on such a stressful and nervous morning. The wedding day makeup for all four of us was perfect. Four different skin tones and types and every single one looked fabulous. I honestly couldn't recommend Steph any more highly and I will definitely be booking in for makeup for any more special occasions!

I was very lucky to have Stephanie a true makeup e
I was very lucky to have Stephanie a true makeup expert to do my makeup on my wedding day. Calm, collected, professional and the true definition of a nice lady. She made me look and feel a million dollars. Very very talented. I wish her every success in the future. She went the extra mile and ordered a perfect lipstick for me which I was then able to wear on honeymoon watching a show on broadway and in Las Vegas. Which made my special day last that little bit longer. She did makeup for me, my twin sister and my Mum. Three happy ladies.

We knew she would be the perfect makeup artist for
We met a Steph at a wedding fayre & straight away we knew she would be the perfect makeup artist for us. I don’t know much about makeup & I tend to wear the bare minimum so I wanted someone who would make me feel as comfortable as possible & Steph did just that! Me & my maid of honour went for my trial & Steph listened to exactly what we said, I wanted a natural look & that’s exactly what I received. Steph made sure that I was happy with the outcome & on the day doubled checked for any changes. The morning of our wedding, Steph arrived with plenty of time & her wonderful personality fitted right in with my bridal party’s preparations! Mine & my bridesmaids makeup was absolutely perfect & was exactly what we wanted and more! It lasted the whole day & evening and even watching back our wedding video you can see just how perfect it was. Steph’s tip of buying the lipstick that she uses meant that I could top it up for the evening & now I get to wear it whenever we have our date nights! I couldn’t have asked for a better makeup artist & if your after someone to keep you relaxed and give you the most amazing makeup for your big day then definitely get in touch with Steph.

What is your most memorable wedding?

My most memorable wedding has to be the first wedding i ever did, the bride was so lovely and made me feel at ease from the moment i arrived. With 5 bridesmaids it was quite a large wedding party for my first ever wedding but i soldiered through and each and everyone of them absolutely loved what i had done. The bride loved it so much she spotted me out for a walk the very next day and chased me down the street to say thank you with a big cuddle.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, radiant, picture perfect and beautiful,

What about your business are you most proud of?

I am so proud of how far i have come and of how much i have achieved in such a short time. In my first year of trading i completed 37 weddings which amazes me and makes me feel so grateful that so many ladies put their trust in me even though they knew i had only just started out.

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

I am also currently planning my own wedding so have first hand experience of this, my top tip would be if you love a certain supplier don't leave it too late to book them - people get worried that other people will think its way too early but just do it because you will only be disappointed if they are not available on your date.

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

I once attended a wedding where the name place card on the table was a picture of the bride or groom with that person from the past, this was a lovely touch i thought and something to take home and stick on the wall!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Initially the booking process is done over email then at around 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding i will invite you to come for your make-up trial, this is usually around a 2 hour appointment starting with a full consultation first where we discuss the look you hope to achieve, your skincare routine etc then we do the trial and at the end discuss any changes you might want to try. Once you are fully happy with the look i will fill out a face chart which then comes with me on the morning of the wedding so that i know exactly what products i will be using. After the trial its just a case of waiting for the wedding day to arrive, i will contact you the night before to confirm all details and then i will turn up ready to start at our agreed time on the morning of the wedding.

What do you love most about your job?

I love seeing how happy people are once they see themselves for the first time with their hair and make-up done and in their dress. i feel so honored and privileged to be able to share those precious moments with my brides where they walk off to go and get married! its all so exciting..

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

Do NOT change your skincare routine in the lead up to your wedding day, stick with your normal routine or you will risk having a major breakout and no one wants that on their wedding day.

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

A lot of my brides say to me that the most relaxing part of the morning is when they are having their make up done i guess this is because they are sat still with their eyes closed and no one bothering them so i tend to just keep the chat to a minimum and just let them enjoy the peace for that hour they are sat with me.

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

My top advice to help the make-up last is to keep a compact powder handy and just dab a small amount onto the t-zone and this will prevent the natural oils from breaking through. Another great tip is to note down the lipstick your make-up artists uses on you ate your trial and purchase the same one so that you can keep your lips topped up throughout the day.
