My job is to make you glow and enhance the beauty already there

“My London based work keeps my finger on the pulse of fashion and make-up, it keeps me fresh and up to date. My bridal work I love in a different way. You really get to know your client, and it is a privilege being part of their wedding day. I just love the feeling of a good job done! I understand that make-up is a personal thing. Some people feel very comfortable around make-up some people don’t. I’m here to help and advise you whether you’re a complete novice or wear make-up every day and need something extra special for your “Big Day”. I always do a trial before a wedding make-up. This way various looks can be discussed tried out and then finalised. I would always allow approximately 2-3 hours for a trial to allow enough time for at least 2 make-up looks, mood boards etc. Trials are best done in the morning that way I can prove to you that your make-up will last the day. I only use what I believe to be the best products for the job. For my brides I use a lot of Chanel products particularly foundation because I feel it photographs beautifully. I use a number of other designer brands for example; Dior, Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani, Trish McEvoy,Laura Mercier, to name but a few. I do of course carry the make-up artist’s staple MAC. Every bride wants to feel and look beautiful on their wedding day. My job is not to make you look like a different person or cake thick layers of make-up on, so you feel uncomfortable. My job is to make you glow and enhance the beauty already there. Everyone will be commenting on how beautiful you look not your make-up!”

    Picking a make-up artist is a not an easy job in the run up to your wedding. Not only do you have to choose someone with technical skill, you also need to find someone who you would be happy to spend hours with on the morning of one of the most memorable days of your life. I knew very quickly once I had met Vanessa that she possessed both of these qualities. Vanessa came to my parents house to do a make-up trial and she was absolutely fantastic, we discussed colours and tried different options until I was happy with finished result. She was also fantastic with my mum. On the day, Vanessa was great, she arrived early and really contributed to the excitement and positive atmosphere of the day. All four of my bridesmaids as well as my mum looked stunning, my make up was also utterly perfect. We were so impressed with the quality of the products Vanessa used, and also the longevity of our make-up. My bridesmaid Liz was the first to have her make-up done at 0730 and she looked flawless right though until 2300. I would absolutely recommend Vanessa to anyone looking for a friendly and top quality make-up artist.

    I first met Vanessa at a wedding fair in Nottingham. After spending hours on Pinterest searching for the perfect wedding look, Vanessa's portfolio stood out. It was beautiful! I spent some time looking through the different looks and chatting to Vanessa and knew that she would be the make up artist for me.

    Vanessa put me at ease throughout the entire process. The make up trial was so much fun; we tried a number of looks and the one I chose was so pretty and natural. I looked like the best version of me. Vanessa was fantastic on the run up to the wedding, confirming all the details. Working with Vanessa was such a lovely experience and completely stress-free.

    When the big day arrived, Vanessa made me feel so calm and my look was perfect. I had so much fun whilst Vanessa completed my look and I can honestly say I had no idea I would be so relaxed.

    Vanessa also did the make up of my Mum and sister. One of the loveliest parts of the day was seeing how wonderful my family looked and how Vanessa made them feel amazing with make up that perfectly matched their colouring and outfits. Our make up lasted all day and looked fantastic in the photographs long in to the night. I would highly recommend Vanessa. Not only is she a super lovely person, her professionalism and talent are world class.

    Thank you so much for a fantastic job on my make up - I had so many compliments and didn't feel like I needed to touch up at all (having too much fun may have been part of the reason!) So glad you got a chance to have a peak at the decoration - it looked so beautiful after dark!

    Firstly, I would just want to say a BIG BIG BIG thank you for making me feel like a princess on my big day, my make-up looked amazing and I felt amazing too. You really did help make the morning stress free and good fun. The girls make-up looked stunning too. Not too heavy, just right for them! They too were very happy. I really couldn’t thank you enough, you were an absolute star. We have just received our photos from Cathy, we are so delighted with them all. If you would like any for your portfolio, please do let me know. It all felt a big dream :))

    Just wanted to say thank you for doing our make up on Sunday. We were all really happy with it and we looked perfect all day!! Our skin glowed and it was so nice to not feel caked in make up. Our skin felt fresh all day.
    Didn't want to take it off!! We had an incredible day. Everything we dreamt of and more!!
    Thank you for everything! The blotting paper was amazing!!!
