Full Description
My makeup is best described as EFFORTLESSLY ELEGANT with a hint of GLAMOUR, just the right amount of WOW. This isn't a makeover, this is enhancing your natural beauty and features with mastered techniques and beautiful makeup tailored to your skin. I have built up an extensive kit over the years and I have now narrowed it down to my favourite brands. I only use high end brands designed for use on camera, that I know look stunning in real life and in photos. The Trial - This is where we can sit down together and talk about what your ideas are for your makeup. And what styles I think will complement you best, making you the most stunning bride. ​ Once we both have a clear idea in our minds, I will talk you through the make up application step by step while I apply it. Giving you tips and tricks throughout to help your makeup stay on for as long as possible. This can take up to an hour and 1/2. ​When you are happy with your final look, I will document all of the products we used and take pictures of your beautiful makeup so you can refer to it whenever you wish. Finding a true love in Bridal makeup, making someone feel special on their big day is so magical. I have loved watching all of my Brides since 2018 have an amazing wedding day with beautiful pictures and memories to look back on. I am so looking forward to doing the same for my 2021 Brides. ​ Let me take the stress out of getting ready for any occasion, contact me below with any enquiries or questions you have. I'd love to get to know you!

"Makeup still in place by 11pm!"
Eleanor made me look and feel amazing on such a special day. I had a trial with her before the day and nothing was too much trouble for her. She is extremely professional and listens to what you want. On the day, she went above and beyond by stepping in to help with my dress..which had us in fits of giggles! And also for helping me out when I was partly let down by another professional. Thank you so much Eleanor for getting my special day off to a great start!

"She has passion for making people feel beautiful"
Myself and my gorgeous bridesmaids had the honour of having Eleanor as our makeup artist. Eleanor is such an incredible, kind and friendly person inside & out, and made everyone completely feel at ease and relaxed the morning of our wedding. She has such a passion for making people feel beautiful, she listened to everyone’s thoughts and brought the beauty out in each of us. Eleanor made me feel not only beautiful on the outside, but also made my confidence shine throughout my special day. I have never been told so many times how beautifully radiant I am, until my wedding day, it was such an emotional moment, but nevertheless, my makeup looked stunning throughout the entire day, despite tears of happiness. I cannot thank Eleanor enough, for all her hard work!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Flawless and Elegant with a sparkle of Glamour.

What about your business are you most proud of?

My attention to detail, ensuring you feel your absolute best on your big day. No request is to big or small!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Leave plenty of time to get ready on the day of your wedding! Add an extra hour in, you'll need it!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Handmade decorations get me every time! I absolutely love unique decorations. My favourites have been personalised mirrors welcoming you, flower walls in the shape of initials and balloon garlands.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Although I mostly only ever meet the Bride, it all starts with her, wanting to look beautiful on your wedding day. Having a makeup trial with me is a great way to see how everything will look together before the day. Some brides keep well away from their fiancé, so not to ruin the surprise. Others love sharing the magical process with them. Its completely personal, and that's why I love it!

What do you love most about your job?

That each wedding is so different, but the emotions and energy are always so exciting and magical.

What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?

Carry a mini touch up kit so you always have your lipstick, some powder and perfume!

How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?

It's expected to feel stressed or anxious on such a big day, but I always plan ahead leaving extra time if we need it. This way keeps stress and pressure to an absolute minimum.

What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?

Your make up will last all day, so just wear it with a smile and enjoy the most magical day of your life!
