Ready to feel like a film star on your wedding day? Cecile Llewelyn-Bowen is a professional makeup artist based in the Cotswolds specialising in modern, romantic makeup for every face.


How far are you prepared to travel?

Although I am based in the Cotswolds, I am happy to travel across the UK (or even further afield if you have a special destination in mind for your special day!), all of which we can discuss when you decide to book in.

How do I book you?

Thank you so much for your enquiry! You can enquire via my website, and I will aim to get back in touch with you ASAP with my availability and a personalised quote.

How long will my makeup last?

I use only premium products that have been tried and tested time and again, and with every makeup I offer comprehensive skincare beforehand so your skin is properly primed--so all day! I can also organise a touch up kit for you just in case.

What brands do you use?

I pride myself on being able to offer my brides access to luxury products such as Charlotte Tilbury, Giorgio Armani, Mac, Bobbi Brown, NARS, Urban Decay and more.

I'm not quite sure what makeup I want yet, how do I go about deciding?

For every bride, I offer a FaceTime consultation to discuss what skincare and makeup products you use already, the kinds of looks you like and, most importantly, what impression you want it to have. After this I will set up a private Pinterest board just for you and me, where we can collaborate with images that suit your tastes, skin and features. I'm not happy until you are absolutely happy with the finished look, and it is my mission to have you looking--and most importantly, feeling--your best on your big day!


Cecile was wonderful from the very first contact to the last moments. She was such lovely company, used only premium products, listened to what I said and used her own creativity to achieve an amazing result. Having my make up done by her made me feel completely at ease and confident and made a real difference to my day. I wish she could do my make up every day! Highly recommend!

Amy & George

We cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are for your expertise and helping to make our big day so special. You instantly put everyone who got into your chair at ease with your contagious calm. Without exception, every person who looked at themselves in the mirror was filled with joy. As a person who has never, ever worn makeup before in good entire life, you gave me the perfect look and this transferred immaculately to the photographs taken by our photographer. Anybody would be extremely lucky to have you as their MUA for their Big Day or special occasion and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. Thank you so much, Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Paul & Sam

I was delighted with the bridal makeup Cecile did for my wedding. As someone who does not usually wear a lot of makeup, Cecile made me feel comfortable, whilst working with me to create a look which reflected my personal style and which added something special for my wedding day. Cecile is professional and creative. As a makeup artist, she will add something special to any occasion. Thank you, Cecile!

Nicole & Gabriel

Cecile, thank you so much for everything on our wedding morning, you were an absolute star... even the little girls were so, so happy. You are brilliant at what you do and get every individual. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.

Becky & Mark

Cecile is just a pleasure to be around and work with, she has a calm presence and nothing is too much trouble she was a delight to have with us on my wedding day and the quality of the makeup was outstanding. Cecile is a true artist and did our makeup perfectly, forever grateful. x
