Last update: April 2024

Hello! I'm Jess, a Surrey-based bridal makeup artist covering all of the UK and destination weddings.

I specialise in soft, glamourous makeup for the timeless bride. I pride myself in making sure my brides always feel like themselves.

For over 15 years, I've worked around makeup as an internationally represented model. This is where my love for makeup began and so I completed a course and became a specialised Bridal makeup artist.

Over my career, I've had the pleasure of working with many bridal makeup artists allowing me to experience numerous makeup looks.

As a makeup artist, my aim is for you to feel confident, yet still yourself on your big day. Therefore, I specialise in soft, glamorous looks, mainly using Charlotte Tilbury products. These allow me to create beautiful, natural looks which enhance your best features. My kit is vegan and completely cruelty free.

For a bespoke package, please feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Much love,

Jess

Had our make up done for a family wedding and myself and step daughter looked very glam. The wedding guests commented on it also. Jess was amazing

So pleased I found Jess! She is a brilliant make up artist!

Excellent Bridal make up - I absolutely loved it! So many compliments on the day and even after specifically about my make up! It lasted a very rainy wedding day right through to sweaty dancing. She made everyone feel relaxed and was so lovely. She listened to exactly what I wanted and made sure I was happy. A total pro. I would absolutely recommend. Get in there quick because I honestly think Jess will be a famous wedding MUA before long!

Jess the make-up Magician

Jess is nothing short of fantastic, in every possible way.

I don't have the easiest skin to deal with, having a very oily T-zone and dry cheeks; my skin is stubborn and it is hard to get a base layer to absorb and foundation to sit evenly across my face. This wasn't a problem for Jess. I had two trials in total and each time we tried something new to see how my skin coped, which I appreciated. I've used a few make-up artists before and never have I felt so comfortable and relaxed.

Sadly, my skin did not play ball on both trials and the day of my wedding (after a few discussions and putting a plan in place) we used my own foundation and skin care, which worked perfectly. Jess adapted and was flexible to change our original plan on the day, which I was deeply grateful for. She used products she had never used before and was ready and willing to ensure my make up was perfect for my big day. My make up was flawless and it stayed in place all day with only minimal top ups needed, due to tears!

Jess uses nothing but the very best products and is conscious of your skin and how it reacts too. During my first trial, my cheeks turned red after using a perfumed product. Jess removed the product and made a note to avoid the product. Before continuing, she allowed my skin to settle down. I appreciated how serious Jess was about ensuring my skin was happy first and foremost before applying any base layer or make up. She takes great pride and care with her clients' skin, which is a rarity in this industry.

If you're looking for a classic natural, yet flawless and clean look for your special occasion, I highly recommend using Jess. Whether you wear make up every day or none at all, Jess will look after you and get the best out of your skin whilst taking care of it. Coupled with her experience in modelling and being exposed to so many products and looks, I put all my trust in Jess to achieve the look I envisaged and she brought my vision to life. I felt a million dollars.

Thank you once again Jess for making me look and feel like the best version of myself. I wish we could do it all again!

Absolutely wonderful!

Jess was incredible from start to finish. She instantly puts you at ease at both the trial and on the morning of your wedding and she is truly wonderful at her job. I had 4 bridesmaids who all had different make up looks depending on what they wanted and on the day Jess was so flexible in working with them to create their individual looks, they all looked and felt beautiful!
As for me, Jess understood exactly the style I wanted from the very beginning, I trusted her to do what she thought best in terms of colours etc and she really made me feel amazing! I would recommend her to anyone!

Jess is amazing! She makes you glow!

I had originally booked another make up artist who fell poorly at 8pm the night before my wedding. However, Jess was recommended and travelled down from London to my wedding in the Cotswolds for a 7am start the following day - and what a dream she was! Not only was she super talented and professional, she was a source of calmness on a busy morning. I (along with my mum and my 4 bridesmaids) were delighted with our make up. Jess made us look natural but glam - which was exactly what we wanted. We all felt incredible and I can’t thank Jess enough for making me feel special on my big day. 5 stars! Do not hesitate - book her!
