Hello! How are you?
Naomi here, it's so lovely to meet you! Talking about yourself is never easy but here are a few bits about me...
I qualified as a Makeup Artist almost 10 years ago. Over this time I've worked on the counter for some of the best; Estee Lauder, Smashbox, Mac, Bobbi Brown, and Shu Uemura... Fast-forward to the present and I now work solely as a freelance Makeup Artist and Hairstylist, and also write for a global magazine for Beauty & Wellness.
From 'I will' to 'I do'
Throughout my career in makeup, I've always found there is nothing more humbling than being trusted by a bride, or brides on the morning of their ceremony. To be there for you for your wedding makeup and hair, what an honour! The same goes for mums, sisters & best friends on the big day – whoever is important to you, and by your side.
The creation of your dream bridal look is totally individual. You've planned the perfect day, and your makeup and hair really brings everything together. We'll work together to create an aesthetic that reflects your style and your personality...
It's still you, but your best bridal version!
I specialise in naturally beautiful, effortless, yet glamorous makeup and hairstyling. So, does this sound like you?
Planning your wedding?
From the beginning stages, I'm here for any questions you may have. We will meet beforehand for a trial, to get to know each other and try out some ideas before the day of the ceremony. We'll work together to create your vision of your look for the big day, probably with multiple cups of tea (mines milk-no-sugar, always with biscuits). Drawing on a decade of experience on my part to help guide you through the preparations, and I'm always on hand for any questions in between!
On your big day, I travel wherever you are getting ready, accommodating your whole bridal party for makeup and hair, no matter the size of your entourage. For larger bridal parties I work with my team of trusted assistants to get you all wedding ready, so don't hesitate to get in touch for your bridesmaids too!
Something borrowed, something blue?
I have the pleasure of visiting some of the best wedding venues the South West has to offer and we really are spoilt for choice here!
I travel all across the West Country from Bristol to Wales, Cheltenham and Gloucester... all throughout The Mendips and The Cotswolds, Devon and Cornwall and also London on request. I also cater for international weddings and am very experienced in travelling with my kit. We all know 2020 was not the year for travel, but previously my work has taken me to Paris, Nice, Norway and Johannesburg!
When it comes to products in my kit, it's only the best for skincare, makeup and hair products... Anything in my kit has been tried and tested by myself on countless lovely faces, over years of working in the industry.
Lets keep it clean(beauty)!
I'm passionate about sustainable beauty and am plant-based myself. I can offer a fully vegan makeup and hair service if this aligns with your lifestyle, and my kit is packed with cruelty-free products.
Please take a look at my page on Ethical Beauty for more details on how I work to make my beauty cruelty-free, vegan, and organic.
Outside of bridal makeup, I work in commercial advertising too, and I love working with beauty brands! Most recently I've worked with brands such as Lee Stafford, Superfacialist, Olay and L'Oreal.
All in all, I love my job, and I can't wait to share that passion with you.
My work in the Music Industry has seen me work with Tom Fletcher from McFly (the most lovely man in music), Sandi Thom (inner 12 years old me was screaming with excitement when I got that email!) and Capital FM.
Within fashion I've worked with brands such as Diesel and Nike whilst also seasonally at London Fashion Week – the bustle on the morning of a wedding is serene in comparison!
In addition to working with private clients and on set, I write for an international magazine The Review for Beauty and Wellness. I'm always happy to chat about makeup, skincare recommendations or whatever I happen to be writing about at the time!
