I am passionate about making every bride look and feel their most beautiful
Helping you and your bridal party look their best on the most special day of your life. Starting with your bridal makeup trial usually 1-3 months prior to your big day in the comfort of your own home or my home studio in Scarborough. A chance for you and your bridal party to meet me, for a full consultation. I love to chat about your theme, colours, dress, what your own personal makeup style is and how to marry the desired hairstyle with the makeup. Your skincare, product recommendations and possible small tweaks to your routine, to ensure your skin is looking and feeling amazing, allowing the makeup to sit and last well throughout your day.
I am supportive and encouraging towards your thoughts and ideas, and to help, I advise all brides to collect inspiration images to bring to the trial. Whether these be from magazines, Pinterest, real wedding features or even my Instagram feed. All these factors will allow me to create your bespoke bridal makeup.
This is a very exciting time as you’re able to see your dream wedding look begin to come together.
I believe your wedding makeup should look the very best version of yourself, enhancing your own natural look, so you feel the most comfortable, confident and beautiful you have ever felt.
On your wedding day I will arrive at the time and venue we arranged, taking into consideration to prepare and set up my kit, allowing an hour for the bride and approximately forty-five minutes for each other member of the bridal party. I always leave time after the bride to do finishing touches on the entire bridal party to ensure everybody is happy with their makeup look. I aim to finish all makeup application around an hour prior to your ceremony time, so you can get into your dress, have some photographs and a glass of champagne before you leave to say your “I do’s”!
I take great pride and value being a part of a wedding morning. You have spent a lot of time planning your day to the smallest detail, and now it is my turn to bring your bridal makeup look together with the same care and attention. I have a warm and calming manner and like to make sure when it is your turn to come to sit in my makeup chair, it is your time to relax, to try to keep your nerves at bay, and to enjoy and value this time getting ready for your wedding day.

some lovely words…
“I couldn’t be happier with the service I received. Jess was always super friendly and approachable and happy to answer all of my questions. She was great at the trial, listening to what I wanted and creating a look that suited me well. Jess created the perfect look for me on my wedding day! The make up stayed on all day and night and looked amazing. My mum also had her make up done which looked beautiful too. Jess is an amazing make up artist and I would highly recommend her for any occasion!”
