Kerry was an absolute gem on my wedding day! From the moment she arrived early, her warm and friendly demeanour instantly put us at ease. Not only was she incredibly professional, but her talent with makeup was truly remarkable. She made me, my bridesmaids, and my mum look absolutely stunning - I couldn't believe how flawless we all looked thanks to her airbrushing technique. What I appreciated most was Kerry's flexibility and willingness to tailor the makeup to each of our preferences. She listened to our concerns and made adjustments accordingly, ensuring that we all felt comfortable and confident. Our makeup lasted the entire day without a single smudge, allowing us to focus on enjoying every moment of the celebration. Kerry's genuine kindness and exceptional skills made her an invaluable part of my special day, and I can't thank her enough for making us feel like the best versions of ourselves. I highly recommend her.

Kerry was an amazing and talented make up artist. I was so nervous about getting my makeup done as it hasnt gone well in previous trials with others but from the first moment we met she made me feel very comfortable. She was so friendly and funny and made the whole experience joyful. She was so open for feedback but honestly there was nothing to fault. She even called my a few days before the wedding to see how I was doing and if anything had changed. I would recommend Kerry in a heart beat I do not regret anything!

Kerry and Suzanne provided make-up and hair artistry for myself (bride), my bridesmaids and my mum on my wedding day and I cannot recommend them enough! They are incredibly professional, experienced, friendly and reliable, which is everything you need on your wedding day. Our makeup was flawless and it looked perfect right throughout the day and into the evening, even though it was a hot and humid day. Our hair looked fabulous and it stayed in place even as we danced into the night. I can't thank Kerry and Suzanne enough!

Kerry was a great make up choice for our wedding day - 1 bride, 5 maids and 1 mother all in a matter of hours! She was professional and flexible on the day and easy to communicate with in the lead up. She did a great job working with all the maids who had very different skin tones and wanted different looks - everyone was happy with the way end result!

Should I get botox before my wedding day?

I'm considering this even though I've not had botox before. From a makeup perspective is botox a pro or con?

Kerry Howell Makeup

Hi, i would do this four months prior to your wedding and if you like the outcome you can redo this a couple weeks from your wedding day.  I would use the same Dr and same amount of botox as you did prior.  I would not do this as a first time thing just before your wedding as it is a little tricky to reverse. Kerry 


What are important questions to ask potential hair and makeup artists?

What do I need to know about before booking one in for my wedding?

Kerry Howell Makeup

I would have a little check list - 

Look at the Easy Wedding photo gallery and select an artist that you like based on the the makeup/hair style images - ensuring this artist has lots of images (this will ensure experience)

Look at the artists reviews 

Look at the experience of the artist 

Then reach out asking - 

Are you available for my wedding day?

If I trial you personally will you be the artist doing my makeup on the day?

Due to unforeseeable circumstance/covid etc  if you are unable to do my makeup on the day have you a backup team? (so important)

Is my wedding day deposit transferrable due to unforeseeable cirmstances & if one of my wedding party is unwell last minute do i have to pay for the person not having the service?

      (these are tricky questions, though need  to be asked)


I hope this helps - you will then have a clear picture of which artist may appeal to you and you connect with.  Kerry 


What's the best way to reduce bags under my eyes?

I had some photos taken and was shocked at how bad the bags are under my eyes! Will makeup be enough to cover these up for my wedding? What else can I do before the day?

Kerry Howell Makeup

Hi - thanks for your questions always happy to help.

Makeup coverage

- Ensure your primer is "matt" & apply just on the bags or raised areas  (not brightening primers on this area, you can use a brightening primer on the remainder of your face if you like this look).

- Ensure your makeup artist uses a darker concealer shade on your bags (dark pushes into the background), or if any blue tones in this area a salmon colour concealer works well

- Ensure the concealer is totally matt (shimmer or oil based concealers will reflect and make this area look larger)

- Use a foundation that is matt for this area - I airbrush this area with a water based airbrushing foundation, this works best for bags or raised areas/acne/rosacia etc

-Powder the bags with a oil blotting powder  - MAC has a good oil botting powder whch i use.

When i teach makeup my most used rule -dark receeds and light brings forward (therefore anything you want to hide use darker matt shades, anything you would like brought forward use light & shimmers (eg on top of your cheeck bones, or the bow of the lip use a shimmer or light shades) - this example may help you remember this great makeup rule.

General l information

 -drink plenty of water (not dehydrating drinks eg coffee etc), sleep and use a cold compress (this can be anything from cold water on a makeup cotton round puff or the like), dont remove your eyemakeup with hot water, use cold-   area leading up to your wedding day.

I wish you all the best on your wedding day & happy to answer anything further you need.
