Wedding Hair & Make Up Artist Kent
I have worked in the industry for 25+ years, firstly training in beauty and make up artistry , photographics, stage, theatre & studio then moving onto hair design and semi permanent make up. I ran a beauty salon within a hairdressers for 15 years before deciding to go freelance and specialize in hair design and make up artistry helping brides look beautiful for their wedding day. I am fully qualified - IHBC, ITEC trained. Salon gold pro insured. I also have worked in studios for fashion shoots on catwalk and session studio work.
I am a fully qualified make up artist, the main brands I use are MAC, Illamasque, Dior & Bobby Brown. I am also a MAC PRO member and have recently gained Bobby Brown PRO membership. The make up is long lasting, it will last from morning to bedtime, requiring very little touch up, mascara is waterproof (i have tested it!) . The kind of make up I like to achieve for my brides is very elegant, soft and classic, I like to enhance and bring out your own features, for example enhance your eyes either soft or smokey, soften and smooth skin which will give almost a soft dewy, pretty look, a more polished version of yourself that will still look like you! Contouring is very good for this look and very popular at the moment! It also works great with photography without having to apply heavy foundations.
Trials - these are done in my beauty room in maidstone. It is very important for you (the bride) to have a trial so we know exactly what we are doing on the wedding day. Bridesmaids do not need to have a trial but I will need to discuss requirements for them. Time goes very quickly on a wedding morning so I like to make a schedule so everyone is done comfortably and calmly! Unfortunately, I will not be able to do hair and make up on a wedding morning without a trial.
All of the hair and make up on this site has been done by myself, some of the photos were taken by myself, some are from brides who very kindly sent photos to me and others are by photographers i have worked with. There are some editorial/studio shots aswel. There are over 400 photos which should give you a good idea of the work i do! I run a professional, friendly service and am extremely discreet when i have to be!
