My full attention until you leave for your ceremony
On your Wedding Day choosing your bridal makeup and hair style is as important as choosing your dress. We want to make sure you look back at your photographs and know you looked at your most beautiful, polished flawless all day, but still you.
Should I have my hair up? or down? straight or curled hair?
What colour lipstick should I wear? Will my make-up last the whole day?
All of the above questions can be answered by having a trial.
It is advisable to book for a trial 6-8 weeks before your wedding day.
We would normally need about two-three hours. The trial is essential for both you and for a Make-up artist to ensure your hair and make-up runs smoothly on the day.
To assist us with your hair and make-up trial it would be great if you could have details of your wedding dress as well as any personal make-up likes and dislikes.
A few photographs/pictures of hair and make-up that you like are a great help in communicating the look you are aiming for.
We can explore different styles, find a look that matches your wedding gown or evening dress, I will listen intently to your views and ideas and we can create a look that highlight your best features and one that is tailor made especially for you.
To book a trial or if you have any queries regarding our service,
please contact us on 07926 838 932 or email

ONE TO ONE MAKEUP LESSONS ALSO AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
Do you find make-up totally mystifying and dread going to makeup counters? Do you have a drawer full of makeup purchased by mistake?
Have you ever wanted to really understand which makeup styles suit you, which colours light up your face and make you look radiant and healthy?
Have you ever been confused about the vast array of products available to choose from and not knowing where to begin? Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut with the same makeup routine for years not knowing how to make yourself look younger, effortlessly stylish – as if you woke up looking like this?
Do you use the same makeup style for daytime and evening and don’t know how to turn your daytime look into a more glamorous and sophisticated evening look?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes then a makeup lesson is a great idea! I will take mystery out of the makeup world, teach you which are the correct products for your skintype and skintone and how to apply those products like a pro! A makeup lesson will also save you a fortune in the long run as they'll be no more bad makeup purchases .
Life-changing, lifelong make-up skills and a simple beauty routine designed around your individual style and needs is exactly what you will take away when you come for a tutorial. I see the beauty in every woman and can show you the makeup that will reveal it so that you can face that mirror with a smile and sparkle each and every day.

By the time you finish you will have more confidence with your makeup application and a greater understanding of the best and most appropriate makeup products to enhance your natural beauty and highlight your unique features.
During the lesson, we will look through your existing makeup kit (please have it with you, no matter how big or small!) to assess which products are suitable and which you might need to replace. I will give you a makeover, applying the makeup step by step and guide you through the best products and colours to suit your skin type and highlight your best features, creating a look that is most flattering to you.

I will then complete a face chart and email you a full list of products and tools that was used so you will be able to apply and recreate the beautiful looks at home using the insider tips and knowledge that you have picked up during the lesson.

A little note to you about what we will do to make sure that all of us are as safe as possible during these unprecedented times. We have carried out a full Covid19 Risk assessment and done an online training course especially prepared for this. Although we have always adhered to high hygiene standards, we will continue to increase our knowledge as the world keeps changing rapidly. To ensure the health, safety and welling being of our clients and our team we will adhere to a strict hygiene policy:
What we will do for you:
We will take care of all the surfaces and make up products to keep them virus free, sanitizing all the surfaces, products etc before and after the makeup and hair styling sessions.
We will be using PPE as much as needed (masks, face covering, visors) We will be washing our hands properly and regularly before and after each makeup and styling sessions.
What you will need to do for us:
1. Please, let us know about your health (do you have any symptoms, are you in vulnerable group, is someone of your family not feeling well etc.).
2. Please, wash your hands before leaving your home. I will also ask you to wash your hands when you arrive to my studio.
3. To keep both parties as safe as possible we ask that you come alone and not bring any company (I know it might be hard as the presence of your mum or best friend next to you is irreplaceable). There might be a possibility to do the makeup outside but we would have to check this before our session.
4. If I am coming to your place, please make sure that the contact with other members of your family/household is reduced to a minimum and that all surfaces are disinfected and ready to use for my service.
5. All payments must be made online via bank transfer and in advance (including the bridal trials).
However, there might be some exceptions or alterations to the points listed above - we will both use our common sense to adhere to most of them and keep us safe. Only by working together as a team and respecting each other we will be able to stop the virus. We will be spreading happiness all around us instead. Hope you are all keeping well and safe. Look forward to meeting all you wonderful brides to be and sending you lots of love and hugs xxx
