I have had a passion for makeup and hair from a young age and love how a little bit of makeup can really enhance someone’s features.
I have completed a Level 2 & 3 NVQ in Beauty Therapy and Hairdressing seven years ago and was able to learn from professional makeup artist Louise Young.
I’m a fully qualified Beauty Therapist having worked in salons previously. In the salon I was named “The Brow Queen” meaning your eyebrows are in safe hands if they need a tweeze on your big day!
I have worked on many weddings over the years and I love being part of someone's big day. I pride myself on being a calming presence on what can be a busy morning.
I am an expert at helping Mother of the Bride’s place and pin Fascinators correctly and I am able to help with any last minute wardrobe malfunctions, making sure I carry safety pins just in case!
The types of looks I enjoy creating the most are very feminine, effortless, and romantic often with a twist of vintage.
I use a variety of brands and products in my kit such as Mac, Charlotte Tilbury, Urban Decay, Nars, Clinique, Anastasia Beverly Hills and Bobbi Brown.
Hair products you’ll find are: Professional L’oreal, TiGi, Diva.
My favourite makeup products at the moment are Charlotte Tilbury Lip products, mainly her lip liners and lipsticks, not only is the packaging beautiful but the colours are so flattering.
I just wanted to thank Jess for doing the make up for myself, my mum, my aunty and three of my bridesmaids on my wedding day. After having the trial beforehand I felt so comfortable and Jess was exactly on my wavelength about how I'd like a natural look that could also then go onto an evening look. The make up was stunning, made even better by the fact that Jess is so down to earth and helpful - it was lovely to have her there to help us get ready in the morning. My mum was initially quite nervous about trying something new, but Jess knew exactly what she wanted and it looked amazing, using some of my mum's own products but with a much more professional touch! Thank you Jess for making us all look and feel like movie stars - I hope I get the chance to ask you to do my make up again!
We would like to thank you for all your hard work with the make up and nails for Emily's Wedding, You were so calm and attentive, even tidying up the bridesmaids hair. The make up was perfect and it was a real treat to have our nails painted the night before. Thank you so much for your huge contribution to making it a perfect day.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for my gorgeous wedding hair! It was nicer than I ever imagined and I had so many lovely comments on it. I actually didn't take it out until the Sunday night and it still looked good then!
