At Lucy Jayne Makeup I love to create effortless beauty for the modern bride! My ethos is ‘be your own kind of beautiful’.
It’s my priority to ensure you look and feel beautiful for your big day. We will work together and create your bridal vision. This involves understanding how comfortable you are with makeup, your personal style, your wedding style and also any influence that may inspire you. Most importantly it’s about creating a beautiful and timeless makeup look that lasts well into the evening.
Creating a makeup look for a bride is one of the most amazing parts of being a makeup artist. The importance of each clients’ wedding day is never lost on me, and I go the extra mile to ensure every bride looks and feels her very best. Over the years I’ve gained experience creating beautiful, timeless looks to suit the taste of each bride and their personality. I ensure every detail is discussed ahead of time. Most importantly I focus on bringing out the very best in my client using an extensive palette of professional beauty tools.
I am a friendly and relaxed influence, and I plan to make your wedding morning flow effortlessly.
I’ve been lucky enough to gain industry recognition for my skills as a makeup artist. Winning the Beauty Award at the Kent Wedding Awards twice and becoming a Regional Finalist in the Wedding Industry Awards are three accolades I’m proud to have received.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What happens at the initial wedding makeup consultation practice session?
The consultation is not timed but I suggest allowing 2hrs for the brides and 1hr per bridal party member. The consultation will need to be carried out during the day because daylight gives the truest reflection of how the makeup will look. I create face charts with in-depth notes of every member of the bridal party so I know exactly what I am doing on the wedding day.Tips for the bride and bridal party – Come armed with any makeup looks, including colour schemes and wedding inspiration! The wedding day is discussed at the consultation and I provide the bride with a timetable for the morning so she has a clear idea of the makeup running time. I will incorporate the hairstylists times, find out if the photographer needs time with the bride for formal photographs (this will mean getting ready earlier) what style the wedding dress is and how long it takes to get into. Timing is so important on the morning of the wedding and the last thing I would want is to have to rush. I explain that I would allow 45 minutes for each member of the bridal party and 60 minutes for the bride, who I always leave until last.
How do I help the bride to find the right look for her big day?
The most important thing is to enhance natural beauty and create flawless skin; the rest is listening to my client’s needs and then building upon that to design their perfect wedding look.I have the skill to apply the makeup and give advise but when a bride has her ‘perfect wedding look’ in her mind it’s my job to intemperate it the best I can. This will start by initial chats normally by email and once I meet my brides at their consultation we have a chat about the wedding style. Their makeup style, colours, and discuss images of makeup that the bride likes. I never assume what I do will be the finished article. It will be a ‘work in progress’ until it’s perfect! Once the look is complete we can look at the option of using enhancing the look even more with lashes. More dramatic strip lash or the subtle enhancement of individual lashes. Changes are sometimes minimal but other times we can work together to create a much more dramatic finish.

What happens on the wedding day?
When it comes to the big day I can apply makeup for 5-7 ladies on the wedding morning, time allowing. If there is a larger number than 6 I have highly skilled makeup assistants that I can book. They will work on additional members of the bridal party. I do everything I can to make the wedding morning enjoyable. Create beautiful makeup looks leaving the bridal party ‘glowing’ and feeling the best possible versions of themselves!I leave everyone with samples of lipstick/lipgloss that I use and concealer if any of the bridal party happen to have a ‘breakout’.

Lucy did my makeup and my three bridesmaids make up for my wedding in August. From meeting Lucy at my trial to the wedding day itself Lucy was easy to get on with and made me feel so comfortable.Sent on 29/06/2020
I don’t normally wear a lot of makeup and was quite unsure as to what I wanted at my trial. I then changed my mind after my trial, but this was not a problem for Lucy at all! On the wedding day, Lucy did an amazing job and I was so happy with my make up! I got so many compliments!
Initially, only two of my bridesmaids were booked to have their make up done. When the third bridesmaid changed her mind on the day this was not a problem at all, and Lucy was happy to do it. All the bridesmaids were so happy with their make up too.
If you are looking for a wedding makeup artist you should definitely book Lucy as she was lovely and is amazing at what she does!
Abigail Married at Preston Court
I used Lucy Jayne's services this year for my wedding. She did an absolutely amazing job. Meeting her beforehand really helped, she took her time to go through everything and to help me find the makeup look that suited me best. I was worried that using a makeup artist would mean that my make up would look too heavy, but it was perfect!Sent on 29/06/2020
She did the makeup for myself, my four bridesmaids and my mum on the wedding day, the whole process was so calm and relaxed and we all looked perfect!
My make up stayed on all day and night, despite getting married on a very hot day. I've got my photos back from the day and my skin doesn't look shiny at all which was a big concern of mine. I couldn't recommend Lucy Jayne enough, she really is fantastic at what she does.
Rebecca Married at The Old Kent Barn
I got married last weekend at The Old Kent Barn and hired Lucy. She was recommended to me via a friend who got married a couple of years ago. Would definitely recommend her services as she was fantastic and took on board that I didn't wear a lot of makeup and still wanted the makeup to look natural and not heavy. I did not even have to touch my make up all day, lasted really well and still looked fresh even after some dancing! Lucy not only did my makeup but the full bridal party of 8. Thank you again for all your hard work in the morning we were all very pleased with our make up.Sent on 29/06/2020
