I am a professional Bridal makeup artist covering Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire & Oxfordshire. With a First Class Honours degree in Makeup Artistry I will ensure you receive the highest quality service & experience for your wedding make-up.
As a bridal makeup artist it is my job to make sure you feel 'a millions dollars' on your wedding day. After 3 years of extensive makeup study at university, my knowledge of photography and bridal makeup combined will provide you with weightless, long lasting makeup for your special day. It is so refreshing when discussing a desired makeup look, every bride is unique and this is enhanced through my work as an artist.
Alongside makeup I also offer a range of eyelash services, this includes classic and russian volume eyelash extensions and LVL (lash lift volume and length). These treatments have been extremely popular among brides enhancing and creating that extra special look for the big day. The eyelash treatments last weeks after your wedding day therefore are there for you to enjoy on your honeymoon also.
Bridal makeup TRIAL procedure:
A bridal makeup trial allows us to discuss your desired makeup look for the big day! A trial can take up to 2 hours where we can try different high quality products and work out what suits you. I will share tips and tricks on how to keep your skin in tip top condition for the big day. A trial also allows us to check your skin compatibility with products and check for any allergies. With the understanding of your style being paramount, an artist will ensure you receive the makeup look you've always dreamed of. Please visit my blog post for a more in-depth look on bridal trials.

Some frequently asked questions about our bridal makeup and trials
For a makeup trial I suggest having this done 3-6 months before the big day. When deciding on makeup it helps to know your hair and dress style. This also ensures I have recent notes and images of the look I created and the products used. If you discover any allergies to makeup/ skincare between the trial and wedding day please let me know.
Regarding hair styling anytime before is still fine, just bare in mind that the style you choose will be adapted to your hair length and thickness, so as long as your hair is the same length, or similar I will be able to create the same hairstyle on your wedding day.
I allow 1-2 hours per person for a makeup trial. If you are wanting to try multiple looks please let me know if advance for me to book out a longer time slot.
Before the trial for those who aren't day to day makeup wearers and struggle for ideas for their makeup, try looking through bridal magazines or online picture blogs like pinterest or instagram, these will help you filter out your likes and dislikes. If you're finding it hard to search for images check out my pinterest bridal boards and instagram of bridal makeup in my photoshoots. There are also online bridal magazines, here are some I love to look at, links below:
Even having an idea of what you don't like will help me start somewhere! Remember, if you have a light skin tone and blue eyes, a Kim Kardashian look may not necessarily suit!
I advise to have your trial anytime from 6 months before the wedding date.
Trial payment is paid on the day via cash or bank transfer. A deposit of £50 can be paid before or after the trial, whenever you decide you'd definitely like to book my services for the day. The deposit is non refundable, unless in the rare case of an emergency I have to cancel. The deposit will be deducted from the final amount owed on the day. The remaining payment for the big day can be paid by cash on the day or bank transfer before the wedding date.
There may be an added petrol fee depending on the location of the wedding.
My bridal kit consists of high end premium makeup brands such as: MAC, Nars, Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Cover FX, Clinique, and Lancome. If you have makeup requirements please ask in advance.
