🔔 Set your reminder! 🔔

As of the 1st May I will be making some small changes to my pricing.

So any enquiries and bookings secured prior to then will of course be honoured at my current pricing.

Any bookings made from 1/5/24 onwards will be based on my new pricing which I will share to my stories soon.

If you’re a bride of mine that’s paid a deposit or an occasion client that’s booked already, don’t fret! However if you’re waiting to secure your date with me then make sure to get your deposit over asap to qualify for my current fees.

I’ve held my prices as they are for a couple years now so like with other businesses, it’s time for me to make some changes to reflect costs/expenses etc.

Thank you to everyone who has supported my business by booking with me or engaging in any content of mine.

For any enquiries please email me at [email protected] 📧

Abbie 👰🏼‍♀️

This was such a beautiful Easter Sunday morning working alongside for Abbie’s wedding day.

It was a little different to normal in that Abbie wasn’t able to have a trial and so it made the consultation before starting even more important than normal.

I went through skin type/texture, how she usually wears her makeup, her ideas for the day/inspo pics, and then broke down each area to ensure she was 100% happy with what I was going to do.

Alongside her romantic half up, half down, I think the soft and fresh makeup really suits her.

One of my top priorities as a bridal MUA is for my clients to feel like themselves but am elevated version.

What’s your style?

How to know what eyeshadow to wear for your eye colour?

My first feeling is that you can wear whatever the hell you want! Makeup should be fun and expressive after all.

It also depends on what you want to do with your eye colour!

For example, on .heredgex I opted for bronzey/copper tones.

With her brown eyes, this actually makes them look deeper, but does also bring out the flecks of gold in them.

However if I wanted to really make them super warm, a very cool grey would contrast so much that it would make the chocolate come through.

On blue eyes, a warmer brown/bronze will make the blue pop as it is orange is opposite blue on the colour wheel.

If I used grey on blue eyes, it would pull the blue out and make them look more grey.

If you were to look at a colour wheel, you will see purple is opposite green and so richer cranberry hues will really pull the green through on hazel eyes.

None of these is right or wrong but just explains the different effects you can create.

What are your go to colours to wear??

Safe to say doing makeup on was a dream 🤌🏼❤️

Always fun to be given the freedom to experiment and introduce subtle hints of colour. With this look I could have continued the neutrals on the lower lash line, instead I smoked out some mauve tones.

You really don’t have to be bold with colour however if you do I’m your gal ✌🏼

Based in .file.hb and open for occasion bookings!

Wishing all the amazing women a wonderful international women’s day! 🙌🏻

I’m so lucky that in my job I get to meet SO many inspiring and strong women whilst being part of some incredible moments in their lives.

What a blessing to be able to talk to people from all walks of life, with different background, different interests, different personalities and different styles!

Isn’t that what makes us women incredible?

How we can be so varied but still lift each other up 🫶

In my career I get to see all kinds of relationships and the love I get to see between mums/daughters/sisters/nans/nieces/aunties/besties is so special.

What a treat to get to paint faces and mix with all these characters.

04/03/2024

Not long and my desk will be back up and I can get cracking on with content and creative looks again.

In the mean time though I have a content day alongside at her beautiful salon .file.hb coming up! 📸

As well as lots of my bridal trials before the craziness kicks off.

I’ve got some tutorials planned too so stay tuned for these 🙌🏻

26/02/2024

As a creative it’s extra fun when a client requests something a little different to the norm 🤘🏻💕

Tor’s style is quite grungey/alternative and so a typical soft neutral wouldn’t be keeping to her true self, and I’m all about making people feel their best!

She requested a cool toned eye, with smudged out liner and a neutral lip to finish.

A true 90s glam 🖤

How lucky am I that this is my job 💄🖌️

The most stunning mumma-to-be 🫶

Always a joy painting .7x face but even more special on her own Mum’s wedding day.

We originally were opting for a neutral glam eye as she pulls it off so well but we decided last minute for the pop of green under the eye to just bring the dress in a bit.

You don’t always have to tie in colour nor does it have to be exact if you do, but it does create such a beautiful effect if you fancy something different without covering the entire lid in colour.

Do you ever wear colour on the eyes? 🌈

Can’t go wrong with a fluffy brow and fresh skin 🤌🏼❤️

Demi/cluster lashes are my favourites for weddings because they can start so subtle, or can be built up for a more dramatic look! 🌟

But for those a little apprehensive of them, they’re also SO much more comfortable than a full strip if you’re not used to them.

They really do make such a difference!

A soft rose-toned look never fails for a bridesmaid! 💕🌸

After trial we decided the browns on her eye makeup were a little too dark for the overall desired look so on the day I opted for blush/rose gold colours as they really tied everything together so beautifully.

Which then meant for her bridal party, similar colours were used to keep them cohesive and complimentary to the bride!

This is why trials are so important.

You may have an idea of what you want in your head, but sometimes it’s not until we try it that we realise a few aspects that you want to totally change!

For my own wedding I had no winged liner in my trial but then on the day itself, I knew that that would make me feel so much more like me having that small tweak!

For all 2024 weddings, bookings are coming through thick and fast as everyone gets organised after Christmas and New Year!

If you’re wanting to enquire with me please email me at [email protected] with the following:

- wedding date
- ceremony time
- getting ready location if different from venue
- party size/members

That way I can get back to you promptly with an accurate quote!

Have a great week everyone 🫶
