1. What do you offer to those planning their weddings?
I’m a make-up artist specialising in wedding make-up. I offer a free consultation so that I can meet the bride before we decide on anything – I believe that it is so important to connect with the person that is going to make you look the best you have ever looked!
??2. What makes your make-up service different???
I like to listen to my client and ask her to tell me what she likes or dislikes. I use excellent make-up as I would for myself. From YSL to Dior to Chanel to Bobby Brown, MAC and Inglot. I try to always update my make up kit so it’s the best it can be.
?3. Why did you choose to focus on weddings??
I didn’t choose to focus on weddings, brides-to-be chose me!
4. What advice do you have for brides who are planning their weddings??
The best advice I can give to brides is do your homework, look at pictures and magazines, and try to imagine what you would like to look like! Forget about not wanting to look different to how you normally look – you will look different and hopefully the best you ever looked!
?5. My favourite part of a wedding is…??
When I hand over the mirror to my bride and she see what others will see. I don’t do my make-up in front of the mirror, I choose the daylight and the view and it relaxes them…
?6. I love weddings because…
It’s a girl’s dream day and I play an important part in it.
?7. My number one tip for wedding make-up is…?
Do have a trial run or two to make sure you like it.
??8. My favourite wedding trend with make-up is…?
Look as fabulous as can be with smokey bedroom eyes and soft lips!
