KENT WEDDING AWARD WINNER 2020 and RUNNER UP 2021/22

SOUTH EAST WEDDING EMPORIUM AWARD WINNER 2021

Helen Lee Makeup Artist is a multi-award-winning makeup artist based in Maidstone, Kent. With over 22 years of experience, Helen boasts a diverse repertoire and talent for enhancing natural beauty.

Services Offered

TRIALS-

The bridal consultation and trial are essential elements of the makeup process and recommended to all brides to be.An entirely bespoke appointment, for Helen to gain a global understanding of the wedding day, with the objective to create a makeup that will compliment the bride, and her day as a whole.

Helen works with her brides to achieve a look that is both photogenic and also stunning in person. A makeup that feels comfortable on the skin, and is both long lasting and personalised to the wearer.

"On her wedding day a bride should still look like herself, but at her most beautiful!"

During your trial day at her home in Maidstone, Helen will get to know your style and colour scheme and can review samples of hairstyles, your wedding attire, and your flowers. With the big picture and your unique vision realised, she'll get to work curating various beautiful looks for the occasion. Trials include airbrush and traditional makeup and false lashes can be added for a flawless photogenic quality. When your big day arrives, Helen Lee Makeup Artist will arrive early and spend around an hour completing makeup for to-be-weds. Extra time can be allotted for your guests of honour, flower children, and some finishing touches before the ceremony. All you need to do is arrive, get comfortable and prepare for a morning of pampering before walking the aisle.

ON THE WEDDING DAY-

Helen will arrive as early as required on the wedding day, and will aim to finish in plenty of time; usually one hour before the ceremony, to allow her brides time to change into their dress, possibly have a few images taken, and in most cases enjoy a well deserved glass of Champagne!

Timings are dependant on style of makeup, but as a general rule 1 hour for bridal makeup and 45 minutes each for other members of the wedding party, with 30 minutes at the end of this for finishing touches and lipstick application, is an ideal schedule.

She is lucky enough to have had experience in working within many different and fabulous venues, and also frequently from client's houses. No space is too big or too small, but for best results it is best to have a room with plenty of natural daylight. Travel is included within 20 miles of her home address, with weddings outside this distance just incurring a small additional fee.

​Helen is able to work alongside hairstylists, photographers, videographers and other suppliers, so that the morning runs smoothly and without complication. A rota will always be provided in advance of all bookings.

​She also able to bring along an assistant artist for larger wedding parties, to reduce preparation time if needed or preferred

Amazing!!! Helen really is the best of the best.

Where do I begin! I honestly couldn’t have dreamed of a better wedding make up experience. Having never had my make up done professionally before and being a bit of a perfectionist, I was slightly nervous and apprehensive as to whether I’d genuinely be happy with my make up on my wedding day. However, there was absolutely no need for me to worry with Helen!! I felt so amazing on the day and it lasted absolutely perfectly the whole time. My bridesmaids loved their make up so much too, they looked so beautiful!! Helen was such a calming presence in the room and helped all of us feel so relaxed and ready for the big day ahead. I couldn’t recommend Helen enough - thank you x a million 🤩

The MUA you need!

Helen did such an amazing job with my wedding make up!
She really takes the time at the trial to understand what you're looking for and how to make this look amazing and last for your skin type.
On the day my make up didn't shift or crease at all and I had so many compliments, I was so happy with it!
A bonus is the lashes she gave me lasted throughout my honeymoon. Can't thank her enough!

Professional and enjoyable

Helen was friendly and professional and asked lots of questions to make sure everything was perfect.
I have really oily skin and had concerns about how the foundation would last.
The foundation lasted really well on the day.
The make up trial was really beneficial and fun.

Brilliant - couldn’t recommend highly enough!

On my wedding day she again explained what needed to happen, and worked really well with my lovely hair lady to ensure we all were ready with time to spare. My bridesmaids and mum looked beautiful and I was over the moon with mine too. I felt incredibly special.
Thank you Helen

The perfect make-up artist for your day!

Helen was amazing from start to finish in the process of planning my wedding, as well as on the day itself. She was easy to communicate with and always put my mind at ease in terms of all the logistics and details. During my trial, she listened to everything I said and kept checking with me as we went along to make sure I was still happy with everything she was doing. A couple of my bridesmaids hadn’t had their makeup done professionally before and were a little nervous, but Helen listened to everyone’s concerns and made us all feel amazing! The day went really smoothly and we loved every minute of the getting ready process. My makeup was the perfect blend of special and natural, and it lasted so well throughout the day. I would 100% recommend Helen to anyone!

Beautiful wedding make up

Helen did a fantastic job on my wedding day for me and my five bridesmaids! She is friendly and approachable and we all looked amazing! The make up lasted all day and into the night and my lashes stayed on for days!
Helen’s communication was always excellent from the moment of booking, for my trial and prior to my wedding day. I would thoroughly recommend Helen to anyone!

Glamorous but natural makeup

I was quite anxious about my wedding makeup - I wanted to look amazing but be comfortable and for my makeup last all day. Helen made me look and feel gorgeous. (As well as my mum and bridesmaids) Honestly, everyone looked stunning and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would HIGHLY recommend.

The Perfect Make Up Artist!

Helen was amazing from start to finish and I couldn’t have picked anyone better to do our make up for our wedding! I ended up having two make up trials, and Helen made such brilliant suggestions throughout, and also kept me super calm on the morning of my wedding. My Bridesmaids, my Mum and I all loved our make up, and all agreed Helen was the perfect person to help us get ready that morning! If you do one thing for your wedding, make sure you book Helen!

Friendly, professional and has the ability to make you feel and look your best!

I booked Helen for my bridal make up and for my bridesmaids.

I’d never had my make up done professionally before and was quite nervous about how it might go. Helen put me at ease straight away during the trial and was patient to try different lipstick colours to find that perfect one. I knew straight away that I’d chosen the perfect make up artist for my big day and it was one less thing to worry about!

On the day, Helen was calm, relaxed and just fitted in seamlessly with all the chaos and girls in the dressing room. The make up was flawless and I can honestly say I’d never felt so confident in myself.

All the bridesmaids were over the moon with their make up and a couple have noted down Helen’s contact details for their future big days!

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Helen, and if you’re unsure, the trial is an excellent opportunity to get a feel for what you want l. With Helen’s there’s no rushing or pressure. It was the perfect experience.

Helen did my bridal make-up as well as the bridesmaids & mums. She is super friendly, professional & nothing was too much trouble. I absolutely loved my make-up and it stayed on all night, which I usually struggle with! The whole process from first enquiry Helen made so easy and I was so pleased I chose her. Highly recommend.
