BE PAMPERED

Enjoy a healthy dose of skincare before your makeup. Relax and sit back while Katie carefully applies a makeup look that suits your skin, style and the conditions of the day.

LOOK AMAZING IN YOUR PHOTOS

Using the latest makeup techniques, Katie ensures your images will look dimensional and that imperfections will not draw the eye.

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 am an ally to the LGBTQIA* community.  I understand that gender is diverse and love working with people from all over the spectrum. 


“My philosophy is to ensure that the bride still looks like themselves, while feeling glamourous and beautiful. Wedding photos may become family heirlooms, so wedding makeup should be timeless. I want you to look like you, but enhanced. ”

WEDDING GROOMING SERVICES

If you are spending money on photographs that will become a keepsake, consider booking a grooming service. 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.

My grooming service is ideal for people that do not wear makeup but want to ensure they look their best  in their wedding photos. 

Grooming includes:

  • Preparation of the skin
  • Treatment of dry or problem areas
  • Concealing spots, dark eye circles and injuries
  • Mattifying shiny or oily areas
  • Neatening of brows and facial hair (shaving not included)
  • Ensuring skin looks clean and fresh
  • Lip treatment
  • Contouring
  • Creating consistent skin tone
  • Redness concealing
  • Soft definition of the eyes

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.
