An Artist who will make you feel as beautiful as you look...

 

I'm Victoria and I’m a makeup artist based in Braintree in Essex. I cover a large area of Essex and some of Hertfordshire and Suffolk and I'm more than happy to travel. I trained in Makeup and Beauty back in 1998 at Cambridge and have been working in the Beauty industry ever since then. Wedding Makeup is my passion! I love nothing more than creating beautiful, flawless makeup for your special day that you won't need to retouch apart from lipstick. I know how makeup needs to look up close and also in photographs, and I have an excellent knowledge of makeup for HD film and photography. I also know that you'll want to look and feel like yourself, which is why I use a variety of brands to ensure a perfect finish. These include Nars, Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tillbury, Urban Decay and Bare Minerals.

I'm also a trained Airbase High Definition Makeup Artist, which means I can also provide this beautiful airbrushing service to ensure a perfect finish. Please see my Airbase page here.I have been in love with Makeup for as long as I can remember, since being a little girl watching my Mum apply it. This inspired my career choice and I also trained as a Beauty Therapist, so I also have an excellent background in skincare and can provide advice on how to make your skin look its best for your big day. I have worked and trained with brands such as Clarins, Guinot, Dermalogica and Decleor, so my knowledge is vast!

As well as being a Makeup Artist, I'm also a mummy to two little girls Eva and Grace, my little princesses and Artists in training. See their gorgeous little faces below!
After all these years there is nothing I more get excited about than a wedding! It truly is my passion and I consider it a privilege to be part of the ‘team’ on your special day.


After being a bride myself and several experiences as a bridesmaid, and of course working with many, many brides I have a very good understanding of how important it is to get the details right. So much will happen on the morning of your wedding that really, you don’t need to be a part of. All you need to do is relax, have a glass of champagne and be pampered. You’ve done all the hard work and now it’s down to your beauty team to do the rest.

As an Artist for Wedding Makeup I truly feel you need to be a master of all medias. The wedding makeup we create on the day has to look good in the flesh, on digital photography and on the ever popular 'selfies' that we post all over social media! Also it has to look lovely for video and even if you are having a photo booth at your wedding, so there is a lot to consider.

When you choose an artist for your day, please look for someone who truly loves their job, has a passion for art and also someone who'll care about your day. It doesnt matter how many brides have come before or after your wedding, that Artist is there to make you feel special and look amazing.

With that in mind, please do browse through my gallery and feel free to contact me on any of the social medias below or drop me an email. I would truly love to hear about your big day!

Thanks for reading this and I hope to hear all about your wedding very soon.

Victoria xx
