You may not be used to wearing makeup and the world of products is a vast one so if this is a brand new adventure for you then it’s a great idea to get a professional involved. They know their stuff; like which products to use and how best to apply them.

Attention to detail

Your chosen makeup artist will create a look that is tailored to you and your style. They will know how to emphasise your beautiful features while obscuring any imperfections to ensure that you look flawless from every angle. Your artist will also take in to account your colour scheme, personality and style of dress to create your perfect bridal makeup.


As tears are likely to flow as you say ‘I do’ to the love of your life your makeup artist will choose products that will stay locked in place all day making sure you look picture perfect. No running mascara or shiny T-Zone for the blushing bride and her bridal party!

It’s a big day and you are likely to be nervous without having to worry about getting your makeup perfect too! A professional makeup artist will have one mission on the day of your wedding and that is to make you and your bridal party look incredible.
