I am The National Winner of The 2019 Wedding Industry Awards!
If you have got the hottest looks in mind, you are in luck – I can provide gorgeous professional makeup ideas for weddings and special occasions using expert techniques. Being almost obsessive about makeup and beauty, I constantly strive to keep current with the latest fashion trends and continue to train with the best professionals in the industry.
I was trained by the famous, award winning makeup artist Kristina Gasperas and will offer advice tailored to you, taking into account your unique facial features, your hairstyle, dress and skin colouring.
Soft bridal, vintage glamour, natural allure or anything in between – I have got it covered! Makeup is such a powerful tool; when you feel good about yourself and the way you look, confidence and fabulousness shines through!
My studio is based in Southsea, Hampshire but I regularly offer a professional mobile makeup service to my clients, travelling to various venues in the South East of England covering Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, Berkshire and the Isle of Wight.
Please get in touch today to talk through your options and any questions you have.
I first met Birute when she did the make up at my sister's wedding. We instantly clicked and I booked her for my wedding less than a year later - and I was so pleased I did! I sent her some photos of bridal looks that I liked prior to my trial. At the trial we had so much fun, and seeing my makeup done professionally definitely took my breath away. My eyes popped, my skin glowed, and I felt like she listened to everything I had said. On the day she was a calming influence, when there was a lot going on! She managed to put everyone at ease, blending into the background but also providing such a calm atmosphere as we were getting ready. My make up looked even better than the trial, and lasted all day and night on a hot day with lots of dancing at the end!
My dear Kate, this review and your kindness mean so much to me! Thank you so much for taking time and writing this beautiful testimonial about me. I know that it will be very helpful to all my future brides.
The morning of your wedding was even more special that I was able to see your beautiful sister Laura (my ex bride) and your mum there. You are such a beautiful and lovely family!
You are absolutely amazing person and I wish you and Colin all the happiness in the world!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart xxx
My make up was flawless and it stayed all day! Nothing was too much trouble for Birute, I felt very comfortable! Would definitely recommend, I was a very very happy bride!
Thank you so much for such kind words, Lauren! It was my absolute pleasure to be with you on the morning of your wedding day xx
This will take around one hour and a half for the bride and around 40 to 50 minutes for members of the bridal party. Brides generally like to be ready in good time before they leave for the ceremony – usually about an hour before – so they’ll have time to change into their dress, relax with a glass of champagne and do anything else they might have remembered while they were getting ready. This time allowance is definitely recommended so there’s no panic!
I only use highest quality products and which ones will completely depend on the client, the look they desire and if they have any sensitivities. They include Laura Mercier, Kevyn Aucoin, Make Up For Ever, Charlotte Tilbury, Shiseido, Becca, Liz Earle, Hourglass and Studio 10.
A trial is recommended to ensure that your chosen makeup look suits you and that you are happy with it. The majority of brides will have these between 2 and 3 months before the wedding. You’ll have some photos taken during these trials to ensure the look is just right for you and I’ll make notes about any products used and your feedback on the trial look, so it can be repeated on your wedding day. It’s definitely preferred because you won’t need to worry that your makeup might not suit you. It’s also wise because in the rare event that you have a reaction to a product, we’ll be able to try alternatives to be sure that the ones used on the day agree with your skin. Please allow approximately 2 hours for the makeup trial, because we may need to try various looks to be sure that you are pleased with the completed application.
Once you’ve sent your enquiry and booking request, if I have availability on the chosen date and time I’ll send you an invoice for the deposit (which will be deducted from the final payment due on or before the day of the event), and once payment has been made your booking will be confirmed. Unfortunately I cannot guarantee a reservation until the deposit has been received.
I will require your name, the date of your wedding or event, including the time that you need to be ready by. I’ll need the venue name, address, the service that you require and if you’d like to book any guests of the bridal party in for their makeup. Please also provide any information that you feel is relevant, for example, your particular style preferences, any skin sensitivities or other allergies.
I strongly advise to have your trial done 2 to 3 months prior your wedding. If trials are required, I can either travel to your home or you are welcome to have the trial at my studio in Portsmouth for a charge of £60. If you prefer the trial to take place in your home, please contact me for the travel charge if it falls outside of the areas I cover.
I cover all of South East England but being based in Portsmouth, the areas of Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey, Dorset and Isle of White are within easy reach. Travel charges will apply outside of a 20 mile radius of Portsmouth and are charged at 50p per mile, based on a return journey.
