​" Bespoke Luxury Makeup Services"

Hey everyone welcome to my website my name is Nicola Waters and I am a Professional Luxury Makeup Artist covering the UK and Internationally.

So what does my Luxury Makeup Service look like for the Bride to be? ​

Well it includes preparation of the skin on your Wedding Day with a Complimentary Estee Lauder Eye Mask, a Lip Mask from Nugg and a Hydrating Face Mask from Dior (these will also be available for the members of the bridal party but will be chargeable). I personally love these products and know you will get great results, the hydrating mask is just divine.

On the day of your trial we can discuss the skincare element further, I have a true passion for looking after the skin so if you would like me to make recommendations I will happily do so. For the lead up to your big day you want to try and keep your skin is great condition which is definitely something I can help you and if you want to keep using a great skincare routine beyond the wedding day where you will see continued results then lets talk.

During the makeup application I will be using products that I believe in and know will work well and most importantly last all day and night.

If you want your makeup to look amazing on your wedding day but you would prefer to do it youself well you can still achieve the professional look by having a makeup lesson designed specifically for your wedding. We will go through and design a fanastic skincare routine which will ensure your makeup applies seemlessly on the day.

You will also have the opportunity to nail a makeup look for the day which you will feel confident in applying on yourself.

Bridal makeup is far more evolved than your everyday makeup, alot more thought has to go in to the products being used and the techniques involved in the application process. You will come away feeling more than confident with the application along with a list of amazing products to purchase which will be suitable for the day. If you would like to go over more than one makeup look you can book additional hours with me which will be chargeable at £60.00 per hour, this can either be accommodated at the existing appointment or on another date and time.

You will come away knowing how to get the most out of your existing makeup as well as receiving advice on what products you may already have that need to be replaced. You will learn what colourings suit your skin tone along with guidence of what products to purchase for your current needs in particular which foundation is right for your skin type. In addition you will feel confident with your application process and walk away with far more knowledge than you had before.

I know as we get older our skin becomes more dry, sensitive and dehydrated which is why part of the makeup lesson will be dedicated to skincare talking through what you currently use, what changes can be made and how we can get the most out of your skin.
