What products do you use?
My kit contains mainly MAC, Art Deco, Urban Decay, Benefit, Smashbox and Bare Minerals. I have a lot of other premium brands too including Estee Lauder, Artist of Makeup, Bobbi Brown and some professional brands including RCMA, Makeup Forever.
I use products that I have tested for longevity and use application techniques that will ensure your make-up lasts throughout the day and night. The only thing you will need to top up is your lipstick or gloss. You may also like to carry a powder compact or blotting tissues, but we can discuss this prior to booking or on the trial.
I have a large variety of professional synthetic and natural hair make-up brushes which are cleaned after each client. I have strict hygiene practices and uses disposable applicators where necessary.
Can you recommend products for sensitive skin?
I use a variety of high quality cosmetics. Having very sensitive skin myself I make sure that the products have ingredients that can be used on all skin types. I also have a range of mineral, plant wax and vegan products that are very soothing on extra sensitive skin. I always carry out a thorough skin consultation to make sure we work with your skin to achieve its best look without any irritation.
How long will it take?
The length of time can vary depending on the look but generally bridal makeup can be between 45mins-1hour and a full face of party makeup will take up to 45 minutes. Please always allow extra time for additonal requests such as layered lashes and glitter since this will take extra time.
Can you do my hair too?
My area of expertise is in makeup and currently do not offer services for hair or nails however, I can recommend various very skilled hair and beauty therapists around the North West.
Frequently asked questions
Do I need a trial?
A trial is recommended especially for bridal makeup because it allows us extra time to experiment with various techniques to achieve that flawless finish. It also saves time on the day of the event and allows the bride to feel confident knowing that she loves her look and feels great in her makeup.
