What experience do I have?
My passion for make up began from a young age sitting watching my beautiful Mum apply her own makeup. I collected endless shades of eye shadows and lipsticks, not to mention the stacks of make up books and magazines piled high in my bedroom, I was obsessed! My creative, artistic flair for make-up opened a door for me with MAC cosmetics in the mid nineties, I was very fortunate to meet one of the founders of MAC, Frank Angelo. I gained extensive training and participated in some amazing fashion shows alongside two of the industry’s elite – David Horne and Terry Barber. Starting my own business in 2001 has presented me the opportunity to work with some incredible photographers, highly talented hairdressers and of course so many (over 1000) wonderful brides. I am an official Delilah stockist, you will find the full award winning collection in my home studio. I am also part of the Delilah Cosmetics Events Team which involves me travelling to high end salons and spas demonstrating my passion for the brand through makeup master classes and training sessions. Make up is my passion, the confidence and happiness that my work brings to my customers warms my heart and fills me with pride. Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.’ Rumi
Which products do I use?
My makeup kit is full of luxurious, beautiful products of which I can proudly say are 100% vegan , 100% cruelty free and also British. It takes years of working in the industry to build a quality kit that you know gives the best results, super proud to work with and of course proudly show off. I have always been very selective about the products/brands I use on my clients & I can assure you all products are tried and tested before I decide to include them in my kit. My chosen brands I work with are: Award Winning and Makeup Brand of the Year - Delilah, Charlotte Tilbury, Studio10 and Tropic.
How do I book you?
Once you decide you would like to book my services then all I will say is don’t ‘dilly dally’ because unfortunately I am unable to save your date without a deposit. If the date is free then I take a 25% deposit to secure the booking. Following the deposit payment you will receive a confirmation of booking, please, please, please, check this thoroughly so I have all the correct details. Then that’s when the fun begins, we will decide on a date for your trial consultation which is done from my home studio in Knaresborough. Bring your mum along or a bridesmaid or two and why not also book to have your nails done with my beautiful daughter who shares my studio with me.
Why Choose me?
I believe choosing the right wedding make-up artist should go beyond creativity, talent and which products they use. My passion as a Makeup Artist is to help you realise your true beauty. Choosing me as your makeup artist involves so much more than creating a beautiful bespoke style of makeup for your wedding day. I take you on a journey to discover the very best version of you. I share with you beautiful skincare products and beauty rituals including self massage techniques to benefit both the body and mind. These will help restore, relax and rebalance so on the wedding day you will not only look your very best but feel your very best - you will be glowing from within. Outer beauty only truly comes when you can find the beauty within. The service I offer involves connection - I listen carefully to your needs and build trust, confidence and positivity. I have worked in the industry for over 25 years so I know how it works and I can assure you when the day arrives the connection and trust will put you at ease to create a beautifully flowing relaxed morning and of course THE most beautiful style of makeup.
A huge Thankyou for your hard work, creativity, patience and professionalism on our wedding day. I really couldn’t have asked for more and your calming presence was so appreciated.
Your ability to turn what we wanted into reality was extraordinary. Thankyou
Louise did the wedding make up for 3 bridesmaids and myself. She took the time to get to know me and the style of make up I liked. She made the whole fun and stress free and I knew I was in a safe pair of hands. On the day she made sure everyone felt comfortable and was brilliant at putting every one at ease. She made me look and feel totally beautiful and my make up lasted all day! Wish she was there to do my make up at event! She also recommended some brilliant products. Thank you Louise for your kindness and making me feel extra special.
Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for making me and all my tribe look so glamorous for my big day. Everyone complimented us on our makeup. You are a very lovely, talented lady, who was amazing at advising me (a novice when it comes to makeup) what would suit me and make sure I didn’t look like a completely different me on my wedding day. Any bride who books you is so lucky.
Thank you Louise for making me, my mum and sister look and feel beautiful on my wedding day. From our first meeting, the trial session, you knew exactly what I had in mind as well as what I would suit and, in the run-up to the wedding, this was one of the few things that I didn't worry about at all; and was right not too! As well as being professional, clearly experienced, and well equipped (I have never seen so many gorgeous products!), Louise is lovely and friendly and made us feel right at ease I will be recommending you to all my girl friends in the future. Thank you so much.
