WEDDINGS & PROMS
I provide make-up for any event and any time of year, from weddings and proms, to nights out and other occasions. If there is a specific look you like or have in mind then I will be happy to create that for you. I offer two different styles of make-up for you to choose from for your occasion. The options are: Conventional Make-Up (which is your everyday type of foundation that is applied with a brush); or Airbrush Make-Up (which is applied using a small compressor machine that sprays the specially made foundation onto your face). Depending on what style you choose, both can be applied with as much coverage as you wish.
YOUR WEDDING DAY
You've got engaged, you've booked your wedding date and you now want to book your make-up artist. So what do you do?
My advice is to choose a make-up artist who provides the kind of make-up look that you want for your big day. It may sound obvious, but each artist has their own way of doing things and may often have their own signature look. This look can be adjusted here and there to suit each person individually, but if you do your research you will see what I mean. Make sure you are happy with your chosen artist before you decide to book. Have a look at their galleries and also social media pages. This will give you a fantastic insight to the way they work and also the looks they provide.
As soon as a bride contacts me, that is where the fun begins. On our initial conversation, and once we have established that I am available on your wedding date, I will provide you with a price list (also found on this website) to ensure you are happy with the prices before we go any further. This is usually the information that is mostly needed by you as part of booking your artist. All the details you will need to know are on that price list so it is handy for you to keep for your records. Once you have decided to go ahead with booking me to do your wedding make-up, I will require a small deposit per head to secure your wedding date in my diary.
The next step after booking me to do your wedding make-up is the trial stage. Before this happens I encourage all my brides to do a bit of research into the look they want to achieve for their day. Save lots of pictures of make-up looks you like and also ones you don't like. This will give me a great understanding of the type of look you want to go for and will enable me to talk you through your different options and preferences. Not everyone decides to have a trial before the big day and that is your decision to make. If you decide not to have one then I will still make sure your wedding make-up is perfect for you when I meet you on your wedding day.
For those of you who do decide to have one, we will arrange a date that suits you best and carry out the trial then. It's always a great opportunity to use your trial for another occasion, such as a friends wedding, a night out, or even your own hen party.
Once the trial is complete and everyone is happy, we will discuss the final times and other relevant details for your wedding morning. Don't worry if you change your mind on your look before your big day, this can all be altered by me when the time comes.
The day before your wedding I will send you a quick message to confirm we are good to go the next day and to make sure any addresses or times haven't changed since we last spoke.
I will arrive at your wedding venue, or home address roughly 10 minutes before our start time to ensure I have enough time to set up ready to go.
Once all make-up looks are complete, I will provide any touchups that are required before you all go off to get dressed and I leave you to enjoy the rest of your day.

"From the moment I met Jess when she walked in to do my trail I knew instantly I was in good hands and I was right - she is absolutely fab! She really is so talented and such a great girl. Jess did the make up for my wedding and everyone was so happy and looked gorgeous! She's flexible and helps you feel relaxed - I cannot recommend Jess enough! Thank you again Jess you really are a star xxx"
"Jess has done my makeup for 3 occasions (soon to be 4) and I've been over the moon every time. Jess really listens to what you want and always makes sure you are happy with the results. So friendly and calming, would highly recommend Jess for any occasion!"
"Jess I do not know where to start! You made me feel so amazing on Saturday, you are so talented and the most amazing girl. So down to earth!! My makeup stayed perfect all night (and the next morning my eye makeup was still there!) I take my hat off to you being with us from 6:30am. Not only did you do all of our makeup, but you stayed until we left the house helping carry my dress and carry things for me before leaving! Absolutely beautiful girl inside and out and someone I will use for any event and occasion! Lots of love!"
"Jess arranged to do my makeup at very short notice, just 2 days before my wedding to be exact as I was extremely let down by another company! Anyway, Jess did an amazing job on my makeup and I felt amazing all day! She is extremely friendly, and a real down to earth girl! I will never go anywhere else or recommend anyone else to do make up! She truly is the best!! Xx"
