Full Description
A freelance Makeup Artist, with over eight years experience in the makeup industry. Dedicated to making you look and feel you're very best on your big day, so let me help you and your bridal party look gorgeous! Whether you're planning a traditional formal ceremony, a relaxed garden wedding or an intimate boho beach wedding - let me help you find your perfect look to suit your hair, dress and mood. So you can sit back and relax on the day knowing you are in professional hands. At the trial, we will go through your ideas & themes for the day and work together to come up with a look for you. Members of your bridal party may of course book a trial if they wish. I recommend booking a trial one-three months in advance. Trials are available on weekdays (weekends subject to availability). On the morning of your wedding, I will travel to your chosen venue or home to help you and your bridal party get ready. I will help co-ordinate timings alongside your hairstylist and photographer to ensure your wedding morning runs as smoothly as possible. I will be on hand for any last minute touch ups and helping to get the bridal party looking fab! I use Charlotte Tilbury, Mac, Inglot and Nars in my kit. But for the Eco-conscious brides, I have available in my kit natural, organic and cruelty-free brands such as Ilia, RMS Beauty, Kjaer Weis, Vapour, Lily Lolo and Juice Beauty. Now also offering Bespoke Facials to prep your skin for the big day. I use beautiful natural and organic skin care tailored to your skin's needs. I am based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. I cover all areas of the South East and London. I am also happy to consider weddings further afield and destination weddings. Louise x

Thank you again Louise for the amazing make up!
Thank you again Louise for the amazing make up! You made me feel and look very glamorous. I felt like a Hollywood star! You were brilliant at the make up trial and on the wedding day. You immediately made me feel comfortable and you talked me through everything as we went along. I was nervous about make up prior to meeting you, as I don’t usually wear much. But you kept my make up natural……which is exactly what I wanted. Thanks for helping to make my day so special! x

Thanks so much for everything - everyone looked st
Thanks so much for everything - everyone looked stunning! I'm just about recovered and back to work today. We had an amazing time! You did an amazing job on the make up and it stayed put despite the fact that I spent most of the night on the dance floor.

Thanks for making me feel like a million dollars
Just wanted to say a huge massive thanks for making me feel like a million dollars on my wedding day. I was super nervous before the trial as I don't wear make up ever and always think I look silly with it but I've never felt so sure about a decision, I loved it so much and you were so patient and knowledgeable too. On the day I couldn't have asked for more perfect hair and make up, it looked amazing and I felt great so thank you so much. It also lasted all day and evening with no top up, spare hair pins, hairspray needed! Thank you! Alice xx

What is your most memorable wedding?

A 5* wedding in Egypt, with 20 bridesmaids!! Super Glamorous!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, natural, glowing, effortless, chic

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

Start getting your skin prepped for your wedding now, not two days before the wedding! Try to start having facials (or try DIY facials at home) and looking after your skin well in advance in the lead up to your wedding date. So your skin is already performing at its best, and the makeup won't need to work quite as hard. The makeup will just be there to enhance.

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

A calm presence, smiles and lightheartedness usually works!

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

Keep your lipstick, powder or blush and a mini brush in your bag or with a bridesmaid for any touch ups throughout the day.
