I am a Chanel-trained professional freelance make-up artist based in Buckinghamshire. I provide a mobile service covering Bucks, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Middlesex and central London, specialising in make-up for weddings and special occasions and one-on-one make-up lessons.
Your wedding day is very special, and you want to look and feel special too! I can make your make-up one less thing to worry about.
A make-up trial will develop a look that fits perfectly with your dress, hair and colour scheme, so that on the big day you can be confident of beautiful results and just enjoy the experience of being pampered. It's your day - treasure the memories and those precious photos capturing you at your loveliest.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Which areas do you cover?
I can travel to your home or wedding venue within Bucks, Berkshire, Hartfordshire, Oxfordshire, West London and Central London. Travel within 15 miles of postcode SL9 is free, with additional mileage charged at 40p per mile thereafter. Any toll, parking and congestion charges incurred will also be payable
Why do I need a make-up trial and what happens?
The make-up trial would normally take place 6-8 weeks before your wedding, once you have finalised what you will be wearing, colour schemes etc. It will take approximately 2 hours and allows us to discuss all the relevant details of your wedding, and your make-up preferences. We can then try out different styles and colours, until you have just the look you want. On completion, I will create a face chart showing the make-up and colours used and how they have been applied, so you can be assured that everything will be done exactly the same on your wedding day. By having a trial in advance, you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your make-up is going to look great on the day
What happens on the wedding day?
On your wedding day, we need to leave plenty of time before the ceremony. Start times will be based on the time of the ceremony and the number of people who require make-up. It is advisable to allow 45 minutes for the bride and half an hour for other members of the bridal party. All of these details will be discussed at your trial.
Will my wedding make-up last into the evening?
The techniques used for applying your make-up will ensure that it lasts all day, although I would suggest that you purchase a lipstick for topping up as required. I will give you the details of products used.

I am so glad I picked Louise to do the make-up on my wedding day. She did such an amazing job, I was so happy with my look and she really listened to what I wanted, the make-up looks really good in all my photos. She did my Mum and 2 bridesmaids as well and they all looked absolutely stunning.Sent on 13/03/2012
Not only is she a fantastic make-up artist, but she is such a lovely person and was a pleasure to have around on the morning of my wedding.

Excellent & Experienced Make Up Artist
Louise is a phenomenally talented makeup artist. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is seeking a professional for any occasion. I had previously had poor experiences through numerous wedding make up trials with other 'makeup artists' so I was nervous to trust someone to do the job on my special day. However I could not recommend Louise more highly. Not only is Louise highly professional and hugely talented with a wealth of experience and knowledge, she also only uses premium products and hygiene standards with equipment/brushes used was impeccable which was important to me and my bridal party who needed to use hypoallergenic products.Sent on 30/10/2019
I felt so confident in Louise that I booked her for my wedding day in Buckinghamshire in 2019 and she was responsible for my two bridesmaids, the mother of the bride, grandma of the bride, flower girl and mother of the groom. Louise made us each feel so special, building a real rapport with all of my wedding party and has such a kind, bubbly and friendly persona that made us all feel really relaxed and like we were getting ready with a true friend. Our make up was classic, elegant and natural looking and lasted the duration of our wedding – which went on until 5am the next day! Thank you Louise xx
