Why use a Professional Make Up Artist? with Vanessa Peacock
“There are many reasons why I as a make-up artist would advise you to choose a professional on your wedding day however, I’m not going to!
Instead I’m going to let the testimony of just one of my many brides explain her experience of first deciding on a make-up artist, to finding the right one, right through to her wedding day.
“Whilst planning my wedding a friend suggested to me that I might want to look into getting a make-up artist as she’d been too nervous to even hold her mascara brush on her big day. In all truth the thought of a make-up artist filled me with dread as the only experience I’d ever had of one was being made to look like a clown whilst on a department store make up counter! Hesitantly I rang round a few but didn’t really get much back, until I struck upon Vanessa. From the moment I first spoke to her she put me at ease with her no pressure approach and took the time to answer all my questions.
When a polite, elegant lady turned up at my door a few weeks later for my trial I knew I’d made the right choice. Having taken her time to listen to the kind of look I wanted, she did my make up to perfection. Just as she was applying the final touches my fiancé walked into room. As I turned around and he saw my face he became overcome with emotion, bursting into tears and telling Vanessa what a wonderful job she’d done. In turn Vanessa also got choked up as she was so pleased to see such a positive reaction to her work! There is no doubt that Vanessa cares deeply about the work she does and was genuinely touched when the groom saw his bride to be.
On the day she proved to be the calming influence that was so desperately needed as the chaos of the day unfolded. Whilst hairdresser didn’t turn up and florists arrived with the wrong order, Vanessa continued to be reassuring and helpful! She truly went above and beyond her duties as a make-up artist that day and I was so thankful to have her there. I cannot recommend her highly enough!”
