Chapter 1 of 2019

Makeup artist

As we almost enter the 2nd chapter of 2019, I think it’s good to reflect back on the last 6 month.

Firstly, I have successfully completed 18 weddings to date.. with the 2nd half of the year being even more busier I can only thank my gorgeous clients for trusting in me and booking their big days with 🖤

At the start of this year I also decided to go back into the cosmetics retail industry, choosing to work for the highly prestigious, the number 1 brand in the world to date – Charlotte Tilbury – based in Fenwick Newcastle.

Working alongside this magnificent company where dreams truly do come true has been a very special journey so far.

Their brand philosophies and values are so relatable and inspiring, always putting out in the universe that we work hard together and we always win together. 🖤

Working for Charlotte herself is an extreme honour, her experience is outstanding and her products are magnificent.

She listens to her staff and interacts with customers and genuinely wants to create the best products for everyone. What a dream.! 🖤

Give a women the right makeup and she can conquer the world.

January to June – June also being my birthday month! Has been a real adventure, I have saw myself working with clients in Manchester/ Leicester/ Scotland/ London and of course all over Newcastle and the north east.

Being a makeup artist is no easy job believe me, but working with clients as beautiful as mine really makes all the hard work worth it.

Here’s to Chapter 2 and all it has to offer. 🖤


What it means to be a Wedding MakeUp Artist

Beauty, Freelance mua, Makeup artist

When I decided to be a wedding specialist, I knew from years of experience just how much responsibility it would be.

Being in charge of a brides face on the biggest day of her life, leaves no room for error.

It means, always being available for her, if she has questions or queries. It means NEVER being allowed to ‘call in sick’ ever! It means always being prepared for the task at hand, you can’t cancel someone’s wedding once your committed and you go above and beyond to ensure the bride and bridal party all feel extra special.

This level of commitment is not for non committed makeup artists, inexperienced makeup artists need not apply either.. I sometimes think that new makeup artists just don’t understand the level of responsibility it takes to be a wedding makeup artist. That’s no disrespect to anyone who is fully committed it’s just in my experience, some girls that started at Mac cosmetics (for example) got the job, got stuck in, then after 3 weeks started offering clients they’re services due to being fully aware that it is a financially lucrative path to go down, completely disregarding they’re actual technical ability and believing they had the skills to deliver when personally I would never allowed any of them to do my basic day to day makeup leave alone the biggest day of my life’s makeup.

So, please be very aware, when selecting your bridal artist, check they’re experience and get feedback from friends and family and go from there.
