Full Description
Whether it’s for a wedding, prom or party, I love spending time really getting to know my clients and creating looks that compliment them and their features, making them feel amazing. I believe you should be whoever you want to be and if I can help with that, brilliant. If you want a smokey eye on your wedding day, go for it. Want a slicked back pony tail with a middle part? Let’s do it! GLITTER? I’ve got you covered. Need extensions? Don’t worry, from colour matching to purchasing I have your back, taking all the stress out of planning regardless of the occasion. My kit is made up from a carefully curated list of cruelty free and vegan products, more info on this can be found here: https://tanyawestley.co.uk/cruelty-free-vegan/

Thank you Tanya for helping me to feel incredible
I will be forever grateful I booked Tanya to do my hair and make up on my wedding day. She was such a dream to work with, making everything so easy from day 1. She is extremely organised and professional, listened to everything I wanted and accommodated changes on the day when I was being indecisive! Tanya is the most lovely person, so calm and relaxed, and makes you feel so at ease. Not to mention being really talented and able to create the most beautiful hair and make up looks. Thank you Tanya for helping me to feel incredible on my wedding day, you were just brilliant

Tanya has been absolutely incredible.
Tanya has been absolutely incredible. She made things so easy for me, changed timings, fitted my mom in last minute, she made everything work and the morning of my wedding was so relaxed and full of giggles. Not to mention how proud and beautiful I felt thanks to her makeup magic on my wedding day. I would definitely recommend Tanya to everyone out there.

Tanya was amazing from day one - not only responsive and helpful in a professional sense, but also really sweet and thoughtful with the advice she gave, and how much she genuinely seemed to care about putting me at ease and making sure I got the most out of my day. It was important to me to have a makeup artist that was down to earth and warm, that i knew I'd get on with on the day and would make everything really light and fun, and that's Tanya down to a tee. My mum and I had a fab time at the trial, and on the day, the 2 of us, plus my sister and no less than 6 bridesmaids, all had a fab time getting ready with Tanya and her 2 lovely assistants. It was wonderful to me to see how stunning every one of them looked!! A special shout out has to go to Tanya for staying at least an extra hour after I'd asked her to, to re do my hair from a lovely half-up style, to a messy bun, in line with my outfit change (from traditional Indian in the day, to western in the evening). Not only did I adore both hair styles - I also really appreciated having a friendly face there, during a nerve-wracking part of the day! All in all, can highly recommend - good value, fab service, and a really lovely lady

It felt like a totally personal service
From the moment I got in touch with Tanya I knew I had made the right decision, she was professional (great to get electronic appointments, reminders and invoices) as well as taking the time to find out about me to reflect that in my final look. It felt like a totally personal service and if you are choosing where to spend money (always hard with weddings!) I highly recommend her. Tanya felt like a brilliant investment, from first email contact to leaving the house on morning of my wedding feeling amazing - which is just how it needs to be on your big day!

beautifully, personalised makeup
What a relaxing and stress free experience! My wedding day was set once my beautifully, personalised makeup was applied. Tanya is professional and knowledgable on all things cruelty free makeup, as a result I have revamped my makeup bag! Thank you again Tanya xxx

Tanya provided the make up and hair for myself and 6 members of the Wedding party for my Wedding. I felt totally at ease with Tanya from start to finish. She was wonderful to have in the room on the day. Tanya also brought an assistant who was equally fab! With 7 different women with very different needs the team of 2 were great. Communication with Tanya was easy and I also enjoyed my trial. Can't wait to see the photos! Thanks Tanya x x

What is your most memorable wedding?

I worked with another artist for a large wedding at Ardington House, a stunning venue in Wantage, Oxfordshire. I did the makeup for 7 bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride. The Bridesmaids wore the most beautiful sarees and the Bride had a gorgeous embellished bridal gown. There was such a mix of events for the wedding from Afternoon Tea to Indian Traditions. It was beautiful!

What about your business are you most proud of?

Really working with my clients to understand what they want for their special day. Also, being a finalist in the English Wedding Awards 2017 & 2018

Being a Makeup Artist for a wedding means you are involved in a very personal time for the bride, it is important to be a calming influence, answer any questions your bride may have and generally lend a hand; whether that is to help with doing up the dress, touching up lipstick or fastening up shoes.
