Frequently Asked Questions
Know It All
Where are you based?
I am a London based makeup artist. I live in Islington and I am covering most north London areas.
Weddings: on the day of the wedding I will come to your house or preferred venue, wherever it will be.
Evening looks: I am covering Islington, Hackney, Harringay, Finchley, Muswell hill, Archway, Camden, Kentish town, Stock Newington, Finsbury Park and more.
Do you also do hair?
Unfortunately, I do not. But I would be happy to recommend a good hair dresser if you need one. Ultimately, I believe 4 hands are better than two, and on the day of the event, it saves a lot of time and stress to have two professionals working around.
What brands do you use?
I'm actually using lots of brands and don't stick to one. I love to try new products all the time and find the best for my clients. I only use the most luxurious and professional brands on my clients such as M.A.C, Bobbie Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, Nars, Lancome, Laura Mercier, Clarins, Huda Beauty, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Hourglass to name a few.
Do you have special prices for bridesmaids and mother of the bride?
I do indeed. It is £35 for your mum and £30 for every bridesmaid. These prices are only applicable if I do the bride's makeup as well.
How long does it take?
A bridal makeup takes about an hour and a half. Mum makeup takes 35-40 minutes and bridesmaids around 25 minutes each. Please allow me extra 20 minutes at the beginning and at the end for set up.
Do you also teach?
Of course! This is a question I'm being asked a lot. I realise a lot of women are familiar with makeup but don’t know how to use it correctly, or how to create the "I JUST WOKE UP LIKE THIS" Look in a perfect way. In our 1 on 1 class I will show you how to do more with your makeup and how to create beautiful and wearable looks for day and night!
What is a bridal trial?
A trial is when we talk about your wedding. Where is the venue? How is your dress going to look like? What is your fantasy wedding look? We will also talk about your skincare routine and how are you going to get ready for the big day. Your makeup look is something we create TOGETHER. We will finish only after you are over the moon with the result.
I'm getting married. I want to look good but I'm not used to earing any makeup at all!! Can you still work with me?
Don’t worry! I know a lot of women who don’t wear makeup in their everyday life and don’t like to look "too done". I still think you should wear natural makeup for your big day and don’t skip this important part. Makeup doesn’t have to look heavy. It can also look very natural, like a second skin, enhance your inner beauty and make you look glowing and flawless in your photos. Come for a trial and I will show you how it can be done!
Can I buy makeup products from you?
No. I don’t sell makeup products but I can definitely recommen the best colours and textures to match your skin. After my session you will get a professional face chart with all the right makeup products for you. When you go to a makeup counter or a store you know you will be pushed into buying products. With me – there is no pressure at all.
Which payment methods do you accept?
I accept Cash, Credit or debit cards and BACS transfer.
