About Makeup By Aimee

My name is Aimée Hicks and I have been a mobile makeup artist for over 15 years. During this time I have completed over 900 weddings. I have also done special occasion makeup, airbrush makeup, prom makeup, makeup lessons and makeup parties.

My qualifications include an NVQ Level 2 in Cosmetic Makeup and Beauty Consultancy; a Diploma in Airbrush Makeup; a Makeup Artist Masterclass Diploma from the London Academy of Media, Film and TV; a Diploma in Asian Bridal Makeup; a Diploma in Microdermabrasion and I am a MAC Pro member.

I cover the Birmingham and West Midlands area and I specialise in makeup for those special occasions, including bridal makeup in both ‘traditional’ and airbrush makeup. I also organise and run both makeup parties and one to one makeup lessons.


Frequently Asked Questions:


How do I go about booking you?

To secure your wedding date I ask for a £20 deposit which comes off the cost of your trial.


When would I have a trial?

I usually book trials in 4-6 weeks before the wedding day. But if a bride would like one sooner that isn’t a problem.


What happens at the trial?

We meet at the place booked for your trial (your home, friends home, my house etc). We talk about what makeup you normally wear, what colours you normally wear, what colour your dress, bridesmaid dresses and flowers are, if you had any idea of how you wanted your makeup on the day, if you have any pictures of makeup you like. This is so I can get an idea of your wedding and you as a person. I then create the look you want or if you aren’t sure how you want it I will do your makeup with our discussions in mind. Once the makeup is done we then discuss how you feel about the makeup and make any adjustments if there’s are any to be made.A trial takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour per person.


What makeup do you use?

I use a range of makeup as I feel different brands have strengths in different areas of makeup.Brands I use are MAC, Clinique, Inglot, Laura Mercier, YSL, Estée Lauder and Dior. I use Dinair for airbrush makeup.


On the day how many people’s makeup can you do?

I have done 1-9 people’s makeup on a wedding day before. It all depends on the time of the wedding but I can start as early as you need me too.


What happens on the wedding day?

I come out to wherever it is you are getting ready. I then recreate the look we agreed on at the trial (if there are any last minute tweaks that isn’t a problem). It takes approximately 30-45 minutes per person on the wedding day. I can do the bridal parties makeup just on the day if they don’t want to have a trial.


What will I need to top up during the day?

Your makeup will last all day. I use primers, waterproof mascara and good quality products to ensure it lasts all day. The only thing you need to top up will be your lipstick. I tell you the name and brand of the lipstick I used so you can buy yourself one. Or if you have a small pot and a lip brush then I can put some lipstick in the pot for you for top ups.


How soon should I book you?

I take bookings a year or more in advance. So as soon as you have decided that you want to go ahead and book I would recommend in doing so.


What gets done first hair or makeup?

Preferably hair is done first so that the makeup stays nice and fresh due to the heat and hairspray. We work out timings at the trial so everyone’s hair and makeup can be done in plenty of time. If makeup has to be done first that isn’t a problem.

    You made me feel so good

    Make up by Aimee did both the trial and the wedding day make up for me and my wedding party. She made us feel so special, and I have to say I felt so pretty for my special day. The make up was of high quality and stayed on all day. I'd definitely recommend Make up by Aimee for any special occasion.

    Never knew I could look so good!

    A big big thank you Aimee! I found you on the internet and I am so glad that I did! I wanted my usual colours and shades and you let me have exactly what I wanted. Not only did you put my mind at rest you actually convinced me that I could be a little more daring so for the first time ever I wore lipstick. This created a very modern look and I felt like something out of vogue when I saw the finished me.
    My day turned out to be fabulous and you were part of it so thanks again.
    Anyone looking for a modern makeover give this lady a ring! well recomended.
