      The number one piece of advice I often tell our brides is to stay true to yourself when it comes to selecting your makeup for your wedding. We will make you into the best possible version of yourself and we will work with you to understand your style and tastes.

      Sometimes though you simply need some ideas and inspiration! So to help you decide on which makeup look works best for you we have put together a few of our most popular makeup looks that are both on trend and timeless. 

      Classic Eyes

      A timeless, elegant bridal look will never go out of style. Think iconic Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. It enhances your beauty and compliments your dress but doesn’t overpower it. Every bride-to-be wants to feel beautiful on their big day and a classic eyes look will achieve that and stay tasteful and classic in pictures for many years to come. 

      We promise, your natural beauty will be front-and-centre with the soft, romantic bridal makeup look.

      Bold Lips

      Bold lips appeal to lots of different brides because depending on the tone of the lipstick and what else you team your look with bold lips can have many different impressions such as vintage or contemporary.

      Hollywood glam and vintage inspired bold lip looks typically feature a classic red lipstick and teamed up with a liquid liner for the starlet. 

      Or alternatively for a fresh and vogue look you can keep the eyes minimal and try a bright hued lip colour. 


      Smokey Eyes

      Natural Makeup

      We are known for the natural look. In fact many of our brides book us because they know we will never make them look cakey or over the top. 

      A more natural style of wedding makeup will look amazing on your wedding day and stand the test of time when you look back on those wedding photos. Beautiful makeup doesn’t have to be dramatic, in fact when it is applied skillfully by an expert only a few little things need to be done to enhance your best features or disguise those small things we want hidden or corrected. 

      We specialise in what I like to call a “natural glam” which is a balance to ensure you don’t look bare faced and still feel gorgeous.  So we will make sure your best features pop but we’ll keep each step soft so that you look special and amazing and the makeup enhances your beauty rather than distracting from it.
