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 have tried to have my makeup done professionally over the years and I have always left feeling like a clown and taking it straight off! So, I was nervous about having my makeup done for the wedding. However, Birute completely understood what I was after and I felt like a princess. I have never felt so pretty. I just wish she lived nearby so I could use her all the time!
Birute made me feel like a million dollars on my wedding day! She really listened to my likes and put me at complete ease. My make-up looked beautiful and lasted all day.
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.
