Full Description
I provide makeup services from My location in North Nottinghamshire and mobile for wedding day services. I've trained at Cassie Lomas (where I specialised in Bridal & Special Occasion on the natural side) and at PLouise where I've learnt natural glam, heavy glam and Asian bridal style makeup, so whatever look you want I can tailor it to you. I've been published in magazines both in the UK and in the USA, Cheshire Bride being the one I'm most proud of to date, with one of my real brides on the cover and on a two page spread inside! I'm always being told by my brides that I'm a calming influence on their big day, when it's so easy to get into a bit of a state if things don't go to plan. I only use the best brands including Hourglass (which are aiming to be fully vegan by 2020!), Charlotte Tilbury (who are also cruelty free), Temptu, NARS, Bobbi Brown and MAC. I choose products that I know are going to last and suit a wide variety of skin tones and types. I'm a clean freak and also fully insured so you know you're in safe hands, I love bridal, it's my passion and I hope that you choose to include my services in your special day.

Bridesmaid make up
Natalie did the make up for my bridesmaids on my wedding day and they all looked fantastic! She nailed the soft, elegant look I wanted and she was so fast as well! Once she had finished she helped me move into the bridal suite and went above and beyond for me on my big day :)

My most favourite day!
My sister did my makeup and my five bridesmaids makeup on my wedding day. She did a fantastic job, even when my eyes were swollen and leaking! She transformed my look to an evening look after the wedding breakfast. Fabulous service!

Very professional and friendly
Natalie was great when I first booked her to do my make up p for my wedding, as well my maid of honor and my mom. She was easy to get in contact with and listened to what we wanted. She offered us different styles, colours and products and was open to anything. I really did feel amazing and beautiful on my special day. Great high end products too! She also recommended good aftercare ideas and products to prevent any breakouts.

Highly talented and professional!
I booked Natalie for my wedding in September 2016. From the very first communication I could tell that Natalie was going to be great. Natalie spent several hours with me for my trial to make sure I was completely happy with my makeup. She gave me lots of advice on skin care and being prepared for the big day. Natalie was ready and waiting when I arrived at the venue on the morning of the wedding. We had a bit of a mini crisis (nothing to do with Natalie) and she helped me remain calm when I needed it. I loved my makeup, which lasted all day and night. I couldn't recommend Natalie enough, she would be an asset to anyone on their big day.

Travel Notes

I've got two locations where I can do trials from one just outside Leek (park in a space marked with a V is visiting me here) or in-between Retford and Newark just of the A1 in East Markham. The location in East Markham can be tricky to find, so let me know when you pull into the village and I will come meet you on York Street.

What is your most memorable wedding?

My little sisters in July 2018, my most stressful to date but worth it! I was one of five bridesmaids that I had to do makeup for plus my sister, who'd had an allergic reaction the day before, so her eyes were puffy but with the help of my makeup skills you'd never guess from the photos!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Classic, timeless, beautiful but with a personal twist.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Being able to make brides feel amazing on their special day and being published.

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

Book your favourite vendors early! Some wedding vendors start booking out 2 years or more in advance, so if you find one you know you have to have put your deposit and sign the contract ASAP.

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

I love it when couples include their fur babies in their wedding day!

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I'd get an email enquiry, reply either arranging a meeting or when your trial will take place, ask you to do some homework of finding 3 looks you love and 3 you hate and why, do your trial (they generally take about 2hrs) with nibbles and a cup of tea (or a cheeky prosecco!) where we design a look that is totally you, noting all the products used down, taking reference photos, I then purchase the lip colour we decided on as part of your touch up kit. If you need reassurance or have questions from your first enquiry until your wedding day and beyond I'm happy to answer them to put you at ease for your wedding day. Then on the wedding day I turn up make you and your bridal party look even more beautiful whilst keeping you calm by helping out wherever I can, be that shoes, jewellery, garters, dresses and more until you leave the room to go say your I Do's.

What do you love most about your job?

The wow moment when the bride sees it all come together, as she's only seen bits separately up until this point. There's something magical about seeing the makeup, the hair, the accessories and THE dress all together. It's showing people that everyone is beautiful in their own way and seeing the change in their confidence levels.

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

Get your skincare routine sorted 2 to 3 months before your wedding, this gives it chance to settle before your wedding, including any peels or microdermabrasion if needed. Plus always drink enough water. I can help you with skincare advice, which is why I always suggest the trial 6-12 weeks before your wedding, so we can get your skin in the best condition to help the makeup sit better and use less!

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

A good facial massage and always being there as a extra pair of hands to help out with anything!

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

Dab your under eye when those tears (of joy hopefully!) start to fall.
