I have been a bridal makeup artist now for over 30 years and I am still a complete makeup addict and love shopping for makeup to keep adding to my continually growing make-up kit! I also work freelance for some of the wedding planners in Lanzarote which are Rocks and Roses wedding Planners, Weddings Lanzarote , Signature Weddings, Events Lanzarote and the Lanzarote Wedding Celebrant.
What Is Bridal Make-up ?
There is no one bridal look, every bride is different. You each have your own unique style and therefore the look that I create for you will never be the same or follow a routine. A look inspired by you will be personalised to suit your own preference and personal taste. Whether its sultry and smoky, full glam and lashes or effortlessly chic and natural, it is my promise to you that you will look and feel your most fabulous on your wedding day, and will last until the last dance !
My passion for make-up began from a very young age where I would collect bits of my mums almost used up makeup and spend hours every Saturday gazing at all the makeup counters in Boots, drooling over all the gorgeous colours. As a small child I had a very early interest in art and loved painting, all I ever asked for birthdays and Christmas were paints. My love of painting transitioned into make-up and I knew as a young girl, all I wanted to be was a makeup artist as I just see make-up as another form of painting.
It is essential that a trial makeup consultation is arranged prior to your wedding day.This is an ideal opportunity to create a tailor made make-up look for you that you know you will be happy with on your special day. This usually takes up to an hour, however I will not leave until we have created your ultimate bridal look for your big day. I use a very varied range of makeup brands, as I think as well as looking good, its equally important that the makeup I use has staying power,so your make-up lasts until the very end of your special day.
Wedding Day Make-up
I will arrive at your chosen venue at the pre-arranged time, which we will have discussed on your trial makeup day. Plenty of time is allocated for each person requiring make-up whilst also leaving time to get dressed, have some photos taken and possibly enjoy a glass of fizz! The service I provide is more than just make-up as I have a natural ability to make all my clients feel relaxed and at ease, possibly due to the fact that I also work as a Reiki Healer!
It is also possible to book manicure and pedicure treatments prior to you wedding day.
A 25% deposit is required when booking. Until a deposit is received , no booking, provisional or otherwise is made. Once the booking is confirmed, the date will be reserved.
Travel costs may be charged, depending on the distance.
