Bridal Makeup & Hair

Bridal Makeup & Hair

There is a fine balance required for your hair and makeup on your special day. Most brides naturally want to look fantastic in their photographs but don’t wish to look overly made up when receiving their guests.

With over a decade’s experience, hair and makeup artist Claire specialises in taking account of your ideas and desires, creating a natural, flawless and radiant look that both photographs perfectly but remains true to who you are, whilst lasting until the last dance without constant re touching. To create these durable looks, Claire only uses the best products from the Jane Iredale, MAC Pro, Bobbi Brown and Airbase ranges of Makeup and L’Oreal Techni Art Hair Styling Products.

A wedding consultation will enable you to discuss your ideas with Claire and a trial allows you to see exactly how your hair and makeup will look on your big day. This ensures the morning of your wedding is as stress free as possible and bridal makeup artist Claire will be with you every step of the way; from preparing your skin to getting you in your dress.

For larger wedding parties, Claire brings a small, highly skilled team of experienced bridal hair stylists and/or Makeup Artists to assist her.

For prospective bridal clients Claire offers a complimentary consultation, either at her home or in yours (depending upon where you live). This consultation gives you an opportunity to: meet each other in person, discuss your wedding and your makeup requirements in detail discuss potential sources of inspiration for your wedding day look, and to view Claire' bridal portfolio
Try some of the Jane Iredale Makeup.

The consultation also gives you both an opportunity to discuss potential timings for your wedding day, and allows you the chance to understand more about the service provided before committing to booking a trial.

All of Claire’s Bridal packages include a trial, which will typically last 2 hours for Hair or Makeup, or 3 hours if you have booked the complete package and will typically take place 4-6 weeks before the wedding.The purpose of the trial is to try different combinations and styles to ensure that you find the look you have always dreamed of for your wedding day.

At the trial, Claire will photograph your chosen look, both to let you understand how your guests will see you and to reassure you that it translates correctly when viewed through the camera lens

Before your wedding day, Claire will agree a timetable with you which will allow your morning to be as stress free as possible. Claire, and for larger weddings, her team, will be there right from the start and stay with until you are ready to leave. On the day, Claire will help you into your dress and assist the bridal party before carrying out final touch ups and fitting your veil, assuring you when you leave for the ceremony you look both flawless and radiant.

Bridal Make-up Lesson – (2 ½ hours)  £75

The Bridal Makeup Lesson is a full 2 hours of specialised bridal one on one tuition tailored to your individual requirements and delivered in the comfort of your own home.

This lesson is for brides who wish to learn how to apply their own makeup on their wedding day or brides getting married abroad. Typically the lesson is based on developing the skills and techniques required to create a natural, radiant wedding day look just for you, however if you have a particular focus in mind, such as darker eye makeup, Claire will adjust the lesson to suit your individual needs. Claire will also go through your existing makeup to see what can be used and what needs to be updated for your bridal look.

The bridal lessons are based on the “half face” technique, where she will demonstrate each stage step by step on one half of your face, and then guide you to apply the make-up to the other half of your face using the techniques that you have just learned. This “learning through doing” approach will give you the confidence that you will be able to repeat what you have learned once Claire has gone home. Alternatively if you would prefer, a friend can be taught how to apply your wedding day makeup on your behalf. You will receive instruction on skincare and a full makeup prescription (shopping list) of products to take away.

All Bridal Makeup Lesson’s receive a 10% discount code to be used on Makeup-byclaire.co.uk to purchase your Jane Iredale wedding makeup.

  • Makeup Application at your home or at the photographers Studio – 60 mins £30, Airbrush Makeup £40
