BRIDAL MAKEUP & GROOMING

I love to create natural, radiant bridal makeup looks that enhance your features and make you glow for your big day.

I use only long lasting, professional makeup products such as Face Atelier, Atelier Paris, Element Two, Graftobian, Giorgio Armani and Kryolan. I will design a bridal makeup look to suit you and your style, rather than copying images of makeup from the internet. Ultra comfortable human hair false lashes are included in the price of all makeup services. All skin tones, ages and genders are catered for.

For large bridal parties of 5+ people, a second makeup artist will be arranged to get your group ready quicker. Grooming is available for people that prefer to look like they are not wearing makeup, but want to look fresh and tidy for photos. I welcome same sex marriages and gay weddings as I am a LGTQBI* ally.

Please allow one hour per person for makeup application and extra time for heavy glam looks.

My philosophy when designing wedding makeup is to ensure the bride looks like themselves, but enhanced. They need to think about the fact that the photos may be around in their family for a hundred years.

WHY WEDDING GROOMING? 

When you are spending a lot of money on photographs that will become a keepsake, grooming is an important service to consider. Grooming is a unique style of makeup that is applied in a way that makes it almost invisible. Dark eye circles, dull skin, redness in the face and pimples are the focus when performing a grooming application.  Oily or shiny areas are made matte to ensure they do not create hot spots in the photographs.

I am an ally to the LGBTQI* community. For the purposes of search engine optimisation, men and women has been used through out this website however we understand that gender is diverse.

MAKING AND SECURING BOOKINGS

To secure your booking on a particular date you may be required to pay a non-refundable holding fee. This fee goes towards your final fee on the day and is a retainer to ensure that your date is kept free for you. Your booking is not confirmed until this fee has been paid if requested. Occasionally the makeup artist will not request the retainer fee until someone else has requests that date, but you will be informed.

You will receive an invoice for the amount and can pay by bank transfer. The remaining fee must be paid up in full prior to or on the day in cash. Bank transfer on the day is not acceptable.

RECOMMENDED HAIR STYLISTS

Due to the time it takes to complete a makeup (1 hour per person) hair styling services are not offered for weddings or bridal parties. We suggest that you book a mobile hair stylist to work along side the makeup artist to get you ready. Alternatively you can book into a hair salon and makeup can be performed there (with their permission) or at the location you are getting ready.
