Why should I hire a professional makeup artist to do my wedding makeup?

We believe in the magic of feeling your most beautiful, best self! On your wedding day, having your dream look created for you by your artist will help you feel confident, relaxed, special and excited. Your professional makeup artist will know how to prepare different skin types, match skin tones and balance facial features to create individualised, beautiful and natural makeup. A professional makeup artist will not only ensure your makeup lasts into the evening but is also aware of lighting and weather to ensure you photograph beautifully.  We come to you. Relax, feel pampered and enjoy the company of your loved ones on this significant day. We believe that half the fun is getting ready! Your wedding day isn’t the day be running around to cosmetics counters, or putting the pressure on yourself to magically get it right. Your cousin or friend might do a good job of their own makeup, but you don’t want them panicking when they realise how stressful the pressure of doing someone else face can be. Like all the best things in life, we believe love is the main ingredient. And we LOVE what we do… enhancing a beautiful you.
