When all eyes are on you its so important to get your look just right. I will work with you to find what best suits your image and individual style, to enhance your natural beauty, so you can feel confident in looking the best possibly version of yourself.
I use a wide variety of quality makeup, I am independant so I am not restricted to using one brand.
I use airbrush makeup for all my clients (at no extra charge). Airbrush makeup leaves a light, seamless blend of color over the skin, creating the illusion of a perfect face while allowing your true skin tone to show through. It‘s long wearing, has minimal ingredients (great for sensitive skin) It has a wonderful soft diffusing look in photographs and on camera.
Airbrush makeup can be applied in varying degrees of layers so any problem areas can be covered.
It is advisesd for the bride to have a trial before the wedding, to meet with me and decide on the look and theme for your makeup, and also lessen the risk of reactions to any makeup or products used on the big day. Also, some bridesmaids and mothers of the bride may wish to have a trial before the wedding to be sure that they are happy too.

Frequently asked questions
Choosing a make up artist for your wedding can feel a little daunting and you will naturally have many questions about how the service works and what you can expect. Here are a few frequently asked questions, but please feel free to contact Sarah with any other questions you may have.
How long does a trial take?
Depending on the type of trial you are having and what ideas you may or may not already have about what you want, you should allow approximately an hour and a half. Obviously there is no rush with your trial so some may take a little longer, the most important thing is that you feel absolutely happy and sure with the look!
Where does the trial take place?
I am a mobile makeup artist. I can visit you in the comfort of your home to do your trial. On the occasion where it is not convenient for me to visit you at home we can look to arrange an alternative venue for your trial.
Do I need to prepare or bring anything along to the trial?
To get the most out of your trial, you may find it useful to start thinking about the type of makeup you would like, taking into consideration your hair, wedding dress and colors or theme. Showing some examples of what you do like is a good starting point to build on or adapt. If you are unsure or do not have any ideas about what you may like, then try looking on Pinterest, create a Pinterest board. Look in magazines and other internet sites, for inspiration. Take photos of anything that catches your eye. Please consider that a lot of images online and in magazines have been retouched, but there are lots of makeup tricks to achieve a flawless look so you look good in person as well as in your photos. If you can arrange for your hair trial on the same day this will also help you to see more of the overall look.
Can I expect my makeup to last?
I use airbrush makeup for all my clients (at no extra charge). Airbrush makeup leaves a light, seamless blend of color over the skin, creating a flawless look while allowing your true skin tone to show through. It‘s long wearing, has minimal ingredients (great for sensitive skin) It has a wonderful soft diffusing look in photographs and on camera.
If you prefer standard makeup application, Sarah will apply your make up using the best techniques and quality make up products which she believes have staying power, but without making you feel like you are wearing a mask for the day! She will also ensure that your skin is prepped well and use a quality primer to help act as a great base for your make up to last.
