Antonia - Berkshire
I knew from the age of 14 that I wanted to be a makeup artist. What I didn’t know until I went to The London College of Fashion is that I had a complete passion and natural talent for hairstyling. That was a surprise!! Consequently my first job took me into the world of theatre in the West End and after two years I then moved to Granada Television in Manchester where I worked on various TV programs.
I realised very quickly that I could really put my talents to good use working with brides and the biggest joy of being in this industry is how amazing you can make someone feel and really contribute to such an important day.
My ethos is to always enhance someone’s natural beauty, not disguise it with layers of heavy product. Drawing out information from each bride enables me to create a look that is unique to them so communication is key.
I am passionate about products, particularly skincare and I’m always trying out the latest cosmetics.
Thank you so much! I have never been so happy with my hair and makeup after a professional has done it for me. I knew instantly when I met you that everything would be perfect. You were so calm and courteous to my questions and ideas, I felt instantly confident that it would be just the way I had hoped. Beyond me, my mum and bridesmaids looked fabulous! From helping my mum with thoughts and ideas in April, to executing 5 up-dos and makeup in one morning, you and Fran were just brilliant. We all had so many compliments, so thank you! Jenn
I can’t thank you enough for helping to make me look like the best version of myself on my wedding day. I love how natural my makeup was and my hair was perfect and stayed put all day, even through some fairly vigorous dancing!!! You were such a calm and relaxed person to have around on the day, which was very much needed!
Thank you so, so much for doing my hair and makeup on the 2nd June. Not only did you make me and my bridesmaids look beautiful, you were a delight to have around on a very special and personal morning. I LOVED my makeup. I’ve never felt more beautiful and my hair with the extensions was everything I dreamed of. Most definitely worth the money! I know my bridesmaids were really happy also and my sister won’t stop talking about the makeup brand you used! You did an amazing job, thank you.
