Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural Makeup, Glam Makeup & Soft Glam Makeup
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm a friendly makeup artist and I like to make my clients feel at ease in my company. I will listen to the look that you would like to achieve and will stop at every stage of your makeup application (if needed) to make sure you are completely happy and look perfect for your incredibly special day! I only book one wedding per day to ensure that the bride and bridal party have as much time as she would like with me.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book all things wedding as early as you can! I am taking bookings 2/3 years in advance, so sooner the better with wedding suppliers.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Charms attached to the bride's bouquet of their loved ones that have passed away, so they are with them on the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Being a makeup artist, I primary work with the bride. We will book a trial for her makeup, look at some inspiration together at the trial (if she doesn't have any inspiration, such as pictures, that's fine, we will create something special together) and apply the makeup. The trial normally consists of lots of laughs, a cup of tea/or bubbles and sometimes happy tears! Once the trial is done and the bride is happy, we will discuss the wedding day, secure the date and the next time I see her will be on the big day!
What do you love most about your job?
Making my clients smile :-)
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Don't change your skin care routine on the run up to your big day (to avoid breakouts). Stay with your usual skin care routine for up to 3 months, although a radiance or moisturising face mask is nice and relaxing the night before the big day.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
The bride and I normally have a giggle the morning of the wedding. However, before makeup is applied I will always give her a mini facial with refreshing skincare products to make her feel more relaxed.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
As you'll be celebrating with lots of bubbles and delicious food, I advise my brides to purchase their chosen lip colour so this can be topped up during the day (if needed).
