I have worked in the industry for 20+ years, firstly training in beauty and make up artistry , then moving onto hair design and semi permanent make up.
I run my own beauty therapy business aswell as helping brides look beautiful for their wedding day. I am fully qualified - IHBC, ITEC trained.
I am a Senior MAC Pro & Airbase make up artist, The make up is long lasting, it will last from morning to bedtime, requiring very little touch up, mascara is waterproof (i have tested it!) and hair will need very little or no touch up at all.
The kind of hair and make up I like to achieve for my brides is very elegant, soft and classic, I like to enhance and bring out your own features, for example enhance your eyes either soft or smokey, soften and smooth skin which will give almost a soft dewy, pretty look, a more polished version of yourself that will still look like you! Contouring is very good for this look and very popular at the moment!
It also works great with photography without having to apply heavy foundations.
I work with fresh hair on your wedding day, i will always ask you to wash and dry it either on the morning or the night before your wedding. Hair goes up much nicer if it is fresh and will last longer than greasy hair plush fresh hair will feel and smell much nicer! Many publications and old wives tales say you should have dirty hair for your wedding day ... definitely not! I have many years experience in this type of hairdressing and fresh hair is the way to go!
