Whether its understated elegance or all out glamour, my goal is to make your ideal makeup look come to life. I combine both classic and trending makeup techniques to achieve my timeless and natural signature style that is perfect for any special occasion.
Creating a radiant and unique makeup look for your wedding day is something that I pride myself on. My bridal makeup is exceptionally flawless and super long lasting, as is the impression it leaves on others!
My party makeup is an ultra flattering, matchless makeover for bridesmaids, family members and individuals seeking to truly stand out in any celebration.
private makeup classes
Since 2015 I have been providing personal makeup classes to help women improve their ability to apply makeup on themselves. My classes have been popular with both makeup enthusiasts as well as those completely new to the makeup scene.
I currently offer one-to-one and group classes.
process & pricing
For more information on my services please view the pricing guide.
My aim is to make my client look and feel like the most beautiful version of themselves. I have studied makeup in a way that people would study science; for me, it is more than just a job, it’s a work of art and I’m not satisfied unless I create a masterpiece. My style of makeup is natural, elegant and sophisticated and it goes without saying that I pride myself on quality and originality. If my work and values speak to you, I would love to hear more from you about your special day!
Do you offer any concessions for your makeup services?
My prices for party makeup and bridal makeup are fixed. However, I offer a £50 discount to brides who book me for two bridal events and a £100 discount if booked for three bridal events.
Do you offer hairstyling and hijab setting services?
I no longer offer hairstyling myself but work closely with Birmingham-based hairstylists. To enquire after their availability, please provide me with the details of your booking requirements (number of people requiring hairstyling, type of hairstyles required and timings of the booking). For bookings outside of the Midlands, most clients are happy to book a separate hairstylist though I’m happy to make recommendations. Depending on your requirements, I can provide hijab styling services, please get in touch for a specific quote.
What makeup brands do you use?
I use a variety of popular high-quality makeup brands, a few of which include: Makeup Forever, NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Benefit, Tarte, Laura Mercier, Chanel, Tom Ford and Charlotte Tilbury.
How long does it take for you to do makeup?
Party makeup: These typically take around one hour per person.
Bridal makeup: I require a 3-hour window for bridal makeup bookings in order to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable experience for my bride.
How long does your makeup last?
I make it my mission to ensure my client’s makeup does not just remain in tact, but fresh and glowing throughout the day.
Prior to commencing makeup application, I do a skin consultation with every client which allows me prepare and prime the skin appropriately. My method and makeup application technique provides a long lasting look. I have had many clients message me after a booking to tell me how fresh their makeup has remained throughout the day.
Would you consider doing both the bridal makeup and wedding photography for the same event?
My husband and I work together when photographing large events such as weddings. If you are interested in both my makeup and photography services please fill in the contact form and I’ll see if I cancater to your needs.
I don’t want a heavy bridal makeup look; can I book you for party makeup instead?
No and I’ll explain why:
Bridal makeup is a very specialist art and can be differentiated from party makeup through its uniqueness and the attention to detail. The meticulous nature of bridal makeup application makes it a very time consuming and delicate process that requires great focus and diligence. Whether opting for a natural or glamorous bridal makeup look, the processes, products and techniques used are exactly the same and therefore take just as long (i.e. 3 hours).
My bridal makeup service is a worthwhile investment if you value excellent quality and are seeking a custom high-end experience with a makeup artist who respects the great responsibility of getting a bride ready!
Do you travel for bookings or do I have to come to you?
Although I have a studio in Birmingham, I am a mobile makeup artist and I travel out to my clients for bookings. Some local clients may find it easier to get ready in my studio, so I am happy to accommodate for this also. I regularly travel to other cities, including London, for bookings so long as my travel (and accommodation costs, if applicable) are covered. For a specific quote, please provide a postcode for the venue/ location you will require me to get you ready in the contact form. Bridal makeup trials usually take place in my studio in Birmingham, but I also offer trials in Reading for those who find it more convenient to travel there. For party makeup bookings, I only travel out for bookings of 4 or more people.
How do I book you for an event?
I require a £100 deposit to secure a bridal makeup booking and a £50 deposit to secure a party makeup booking. The remainder of the payment must be made prior to or on the date of the event.
I’d like to become a makeup artist. Do you provide training courses?
Unfortunately I do not provide courses to train up makeup artists, but the makeup industry offers many such courses for anyone who is interested. I do however offer individually tailored makeup classes for people who want to enhance their personal makeup skills.
What is the minimum/ maximum number of people per booking?
Party Makeup: I only travel out for party makeup bookings of 4 or more people. Group party makeup bookings are limited to 6 people.
Bridal Makeup: I can do up to 3 party makeup bookings in addition to my bridal booking
