Will my makeup last all day?
I'll be sure to use the right products for your skin type to ensure that your makeup lasts all day & night! I prime and set your skin & use waterproof makeup, so that your makeup will stay put throughout the tears, laughter and dancing. All you should need is a lipstick to top up after food & drink, which I can provide for you.
How do I choose my makeup look?
As part of the Bridal service, I offer a full make-up consultation prior to the wedding where we’ll discuss colour, styles and technique to ensure you feel wonderful on your big day. We will also go through any photos you may have found online, or in a bridal magazine & talk through the aspects you like of the makeup. I don’t believe in the ‘one look fits all’, so you can rest assure that your makeup look will be specifically tailored to you to create your dream wedding day look!
Do you do wedding hair?
Unfortunately not- I do just specialise in makeup. However, I do work alongside some talented hair stylists who I am very happy to recommend!
What makeup brands do you use?
I use all premium brands including Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Dior, NARS, Urban Decay, YSL & Bobbi Brown to name a few. I am also fully trained in using Airbrush makeup which means, in beauty terms, you will end up looking like you've stepped out of a magazine with the flawless finish it gives you- this foundation is suitable for the oiler skin type and I will assess which foundation method is best for your skin on your trial.
Thank you Jessica for making both myself and my bridal party feel so beautiful on my wedding day. After attending a close friend’s wedding a few years ago and seeing how beautiful their make up looked, I started following Jessica on social media and instantly knew that I would use Jessica for my make up at my wedding. From the trial to the wedding day, Jessica was completely professional and understood exactly what I was going for and made the morning of the wedding so calm and relaxed. You’re a genius Jessica and I could not recommend you more!
Jessica was the MUA for my recent wedding. She was a ‘recommended supplier’ for my venue and I was won over by the beautifully made up brides on her website. I didn’t ever believe that I could look like that, but I thought I might look ok. For someone who is not confident in the make up they wear, I found the make-up trial really helpful. Jessica made me feel very relaxed and was easy to chat to. On the wedding day itself Jessica was a lovely presence in the room as we got ready. She effortlessly applied make-up to three friends, and those that had chosen not to have their make-up done wished they had, because the ladies all looked fabulous. Then it was my turn. I can honestly say that for probably one of the only times in my life, I looked in the mirror and felt beautiful. Thank you Jessica for helping me to feel this way. My make up lasted all day too! I completely recommend Jessica as a MUA and am wondering when I might use her services again!
I originally enquired as to Jessica’s availability for my 2020 wedding, but inevitability due to popular demand she was fully booked! The silver lining to postponing our wedding to 2021 due to COVID was that Jessica was luckily free on our new date. Jessica is a kind, warm person and a very talented make-up artist. I had never had my make up done before, so I was reluctant to book an MUA for my wedding, fearing that I wouldn’t look like myself, or turn out orange due to my fair pale skin! How wrong I was. My make up complimented my skin tone perfectly to make me look the best version of myself. The products Jessica used stayed on all day without moving an inch, even in torrential thunderstorms and rain! I even slept in my makeup and my eyelashes stayed on, so I had a fully made-up face for my next day of seeing family and friends, haha! Jessica was at all times calm and professional and completed make up for a number of different people of all different ages, including my Mum, mother in law, 5 bridesmaids, sister in law and myself. She arrived promptly at the crack of dawn, and made sure we were all ready in plenty of time for photos etc. I would not hesitate to recommend Jess to anybody looking to have their make up done for a special occasion, thank you so much, and hope you have the best wedding day yourself xx
I chose Jessica to be my make up artist for our wedding day on the 28th June 2021! I planned our wedding in 2 years from getting engaged and spent a lot of time researching to find a make up artist who could travel without too much travel fees and could do the look I envisaged as a bride. I met Jessica in March 2021 for a bridal trial with my mum. Jessica was very patient especially with the restrictions in place due to covid and spent time listening to what style we would like and how much make up we usually wear so that I could feel 'myself' yet glammed up! On the wedding day, Jessica did my mother in law and my three bridesmaids in addition to me and mum. My bridal squad loved their make up and we had so many compliments throughout the day! My make up lasted the whole day too but was easy to remove when needed. I also have very sensitive skin and the following day I had no reaction from the make up which was a bonus! Thank you Jessica! I will be recommending you to all my bride friends and hope to have my make up done with you again in the near future! Love from Gemma x
I first saw Jessica on instagram, and fell in love with all her work and how natural and stunning she makes everyone look. She was so understanding and accommodating due to our postponement due to COVID. When we FINALLY got to arrange our trial she made myself, my mom & my maid of honour feel comfortable and worked her magic and made us all feel beautiful! On the wedding day she works to perfection managed to get us all ready before we needed to and stayed to touch us up after the church! Everyone complimented me on how I looked. I would 100% recommend Jessica - she's not only a wizard with make up but also a really lovely person! xx
