  • "Fabulous makeup artist for two brides"
    Ellen on 15 January 2019

    My wife Kirstie and I chose Emily to do our makeup for our wedding day and we couldn't have been happier with the quality of the service she provided. At our makeup trial she was willing to work with us until we were both perfectly happy with our makeup (which took a while for me!) and didn't bat an eyelid when Kirstie said she wanted a bright red lip. On the day we really appreciated the fact she stayed until after the ceremony was over to touch up our makeup, especially since we got lipstick all over each other! She was also very reasonably priced compared to other makeup artists in the area. I would thoroughly recommend Emily to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their wedding or other event.

  • "Fantastic wedding make up artist!"
    Sarah on 8 December 2018

    Emily did the make up at my wedding for me and my bridesmaids and she was amazing to work with! I had no idea what sort of look I wanted and she guided me expertly and managed to cover up a huge spot that I woke up with on my wedding day! I would definitely recommend her to any bride, she was really relaxed and made getting ready so much fun.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you do hair as well as makeup?

No, we do not provide a hair-styling services. We are specialists in bridal & events makeup and provide this service to a very high standard. We have little knowledge/technique in the area of hair-styling and so we would not be able to provide this service to the same standard we do with makeup. We can however highly recommend a hair stylist who is absolutely incredible and with years of experience; so please do check out our recommended suppliers.

How long will my makeup take to do on the big day?

On your wedding day, we book 70 minutes for the bride’s makeup and 45 minutes per bridal party members or guests, then we also leave a 35 minute window at the end for touch-ups. It’s is likely that the makeups will not take quite this long, but over the years we have learnt that we rather to pad our time as to not be caught out by any hiccups and end up having to rush things. Before your big day, we will send you a rough schedule with times for each person having their makeup done. This allows you have an idea of how the morning makeup preparations will go.

What products do you use?

At Aurora, we are not tied to just one cosmetic brand. We use a wide range of products from an equally wide ranging amount of luxury brands. The reason why we do this is because everyone’s skin is different, and therefore one brand or range alone would not be able to address this matter. We offer an individualised & bespoke service using the products that will best enhance each and everyone’s skin and natural beauty. We always test products on ourselves before ever putting them on a client and will always take preference on brands that are cruelty free & where possible vegan. To name some of the brand we frequently use: Charlotte Tilbury, NARS, Hourglass, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Kevyn Aucoin, By Terry, Caudalie, Temptu, YSL, Eyeco, Arbonne, MAC…

What is Airbrush Makeup?

Airbrush makeup refers to the way the makeup is applied. The airbrush is a device that sprays the product onto the skin in a mist with a specialist electric air compressor. The result is none cakey, guarantees no brush stains, super long lasting and a completely evens out skin tone. Additionally, airbrush makeup looks amazing on camera, so if you are looking for the 100% flawless finish in photos then this may well be for you! We use the market’s leading luxury brand in airbrush cosmetics, Temptu and use a silicone based airbrush product. This service is also suitable for people with sensitive skin.

How do I go about booking you?

We always advise you book in for a trial first. When you book your trial we guarantee put an automatic hold on your wedding day. This means that your wedding date is pencilled in our diary and if anyone else enquires about it we will contact you and ask how you would like to proceed. So you don’t need to worry about another bride coming along and snapping up your day… Then if you decided that you want to go ahead with officially booking us, we will draft a contract with all the details in it to make sure you are protected and send it over for you to read through. Once you are happy with the contract, we ask that you sign and return it to us with a 50% deposit, and that officially books you in.
