What do you love most about your job?

Being a Freelance Makeup Artist means that no two days are ever the same and I never know what new opportunities will arrive in my inbox. The diversity of my work and the opportunity to meet so many lovely people, from so many walks of life is extremely rewarding and has to be one of the best aspects of my job.
I work incredibly hard and am really passionate about what I do, so it's always wonderful when clients take the time to send me a message saying that they've had compliments all evening and that they felt absolutely fabulous on their special day. It's a great privilege to have played a part in that.
Client feedback is the best testimony that people love what you do and I feel blessed that I have received so many positive reviews.

Some brides choose to apply their own makeup for their wedding. However, many prefer to have their makeup professionally applied to ensure that it looks perfect for their big day. Having your makeup professionally applied for your wedding also gives you that bit of pampering on your wedding day, allowing you to relax whilst an expert makes you look great.

Many brides wonder whether their hair or makeup should be done first on their wedding day. Ideally, you’ll have your hair styled first and your makeup applied afterwards. This is because the heat from the styling tools could cause your makeup to run. However, don’t worry if your schedule means that your makeup needs to be applied first. Hiring a professional wedding makeup artist and hairdresser will ensure that your hair and makeup both look perfect for your wedding, no matter which order they need to take place.

Ideally, you should have your makeup applied 1-2 hours before you need to set off for your wedding ceremony. You’ll ideally have your hair styled first, and then your makeup applied, leaving enough time to get changed into your dress before the ceremony. Most brides choose for their bridesmaids to have their hair and makeup done first, with the bride being last. This ensures that your hair and makeup last for as long as possible.
