Her Bridal Makeup Philosophy: I know that the most important thing is that I have a clear understanding of what you would like to look like on your special day. This we achieve together at your trial. I merely enhance your natural features so that when your Groom is saying “I do” he is thinking “how did I manage to marry her?”
I ensure that my bride is totally at ease on her wedding day. My sense of humor comes in handy when calming those last minute nerves. I travel to your venue so that you are relaxed and calm. I am friendly and reliable and pride myself on never letting my brides down on such an important occasion.
You spend a fair amount on your professional photos so I ensure that when you look at them in the excitement after the wedding and in years to come you will still be enthralled at the person you were on that day.
I love meeting my brides at their trial and working with them to come up with a look that they are happy with. Accentuating someone’s features on their special day is an honor. I will accentuate your natural beauty and bring out your best features and perhaps downplay those you suggest. I can promise that your makeup will not only look immaculate and amazing, but that it will last the whole wedding through.
Working alongside the best photographers in the industry has taught me subtle ways of using makeup to ensure you look fabulous not only in person, but also in your photos. I ensure your makeup is timeless, so that when you look at your photos in years to come you don’t look dated. With over 15 years experience on countless brides and models, I can assure you, you are in good hands.
I pride myself on NEVER letting a bride down on such an important and special day. I keep in contact from the first moment, answering all queries in a timely manner and providing a professional service and application.
