Bridal Makeup

"Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself"
Coco Chanel

Welcome to my bridal makeup page, thank you for coming to visit me. My name is Michelle and I am a bridal makeup artist and educator. I have been a makeup artist for over 10 years. After doing the makeup for my best friends wedding, I realising I loved the experience so much I wanted to do it as my job. Since then I have been a part of hundreds of weddings and won a number of awards. I feel so lucky to be able to say that I have a job that never feels like work because it's so much fun.

I love helping women feel their most beautiful and confident. It's the most rewarding feeling seeing someone's face light up, when they 1 st see themselves in the mirror after I've done their makeup. Or after they have had an 'ah ha' moment, during a makeup lesson and understood how to enhance the bits they like and minimise the bits they don't.

I love to help women feel beautiful their way. Hair and makeup is such a personal things and I feel it's important to really listen to what helps each woman, who sits in my chair, feel beautiful.

I'm a believer that we should use makeup to enhance what's already there not change how someone looks. Our uniqueness is what makes us all beautiful and I use makeup to help a woman look and feel the best version of herself. I thinks it's a compliment to a makeup artist, to hear people tell your brides "you look amazing" not 'your makeup is amazing'.

Brides come to me because they want to still look like themselves on their wedding day just a more flawless version. They want makeup that is picture perfect and will last all day so they don't have to worry about it.

My past brides will tell you that I not only helped them look and feel beautiful but that I also brought a calming influence to the wedding morning. Helping to keep the morning organised, running on time and with plenty of laughs along the way. For me it is more than hair and makeup it's about having someone on your team you can rely on and feel comfortable around too.

My favourite makeup styles are soft natural makeup looks perfect for relaxed bohemian weddings on hot summer days. Or Red Carpet makeup looks that enhance the eyes, incorporate a bold lip. With light but still flawless skin, for perfectly elegant glamour. I also love vintage makeup looks inspired by fashion trends and Hollywood movies of the past.

Although there are a few makeup trends, certainly from my past, I am glad to see the back of! Read my about me section to read more on that ...

With 10 years of wedding experience you can feel confident that I will take good care of you and your wedding party on the morning of your wedding as well as making you all look amazing. Feel free to get in touch via the contact me page to see if I have your date available.

From the trial where we all had so much fun and laughter to the day of the wedding, Michelle was so friendly, and kept us laughing at all times, completely putting us at ease on the day. We used the airbase makeup, and the results were amazing. Our makeup was beautiful and I didn’t want to take mine off that night! It lasted all day long and everyone has said how lovely our makeup was. I don’t normally wear a lot of makeup, and Michelle listened to the look I was after and completely got it. Michelle also went above and beyond and stayed whilst I got into my dress and even helped me to the door of the ceremony holding my dress up and getting it ready for me as I was to walk up the aisle. These extra touches made it even more special and I am forever grateful to Michelle for all her help and for making us look amazing! Xxx
