What brands do you use? Do you use Vegan & Cruelty-Free makeup in your kit?
I use a mix of high quality, professional makeup products in my kit. I have a passion for natural & organic beauty, making the conscious decision to carry as many ethical and ‘clean’ brands in my kit as possible. Brands I love to work with include RMS Beauty, Ilia, Kjaer Weis and Vapour, alongside non -organic mainstream brands such as Charlotte Tilbury and Hourglass which are perfect for bridal makeup.
Do you recommend booking a trial?
Yes, I recommend booking in for a trial at least 1-3 months prior to your wedding date. Trials usually last 2 hours. At the trial we can go through your ideas and themes for the day working together to come up with a look for you. We will also discuss specifics and timings to ensure a smooth running schedule on the wedding day.
What happens on the big day?
On the day I will travel to your venue, home or hotel at the pre-arranged time to assist you and your bridal party to get ready for the big day. Generally speaking it is preferred to get the members of the bridal party ready first, and then the bride - although this is flexible depending upon what is best on the day. I like to allow extra time for any touch ups, unforeseen circumstances and most importantly fun!
Do you offer any other services?
I also offer bespoke holistic facials, using natural & organic skin care tailored to your skin's needs. This is perfect for prepping your skin in the lead up to your big day.
Thank you again Louise for the amazing make up! You made me feel and look very glamorous. I felt like a Hollywood star! You were brilliant at the makeup trial and on the wedding day. You immediately made me feel comfortable and you talked me through everything as we went along. I was nervous about makeup prior to meeting you, as I don’t usually wear much. But you kept my makeup natural……which is exactly what I wanted. Thanks for helping to make my day so special! x
Just wanted to say a huge massive thanks for making me feel like a million dollars on my wedding day. I was super nervous before the trial as I don't wear makeup ever and always think I look silly with it, but I've never felt so sure about a decision, I loved it so much and you were so patient and knowledgeable too. On the day I couldn't have asked for more perfect make-up, it looked amazing and I felt great so thank you so much. It also lasted all day and evening with no top-up!
My makeup was amazing and I felt amazing all day! The powder you recommended was literally the saving grace. I am recommending you to everyone from now on. Thank you for being so patient and calm on the day also! My mum also sends a massive thank you as you were perfect with her. I will be recommending you to everyone I know who needs a makeup artist!
Thanks so much for everything - everyone looked stunning! I'm just about recovered and back to work today. We had an amazing time! You did an amazing job on the make up and it stayed put despite the fact that I spent most of the night on the dance floor.
A big thank you for doing my wedding day makeup. I felt like a superstar!
