NATASHA D, London
Makeup only (Hair on request)
Hello! I have been a makeup artist and hairstylist for over 17 years.
I started my career doing editorial and e-commerce work, which fortunately took me all over the globe. In recent years I’ve started to specialise more in events and weddings.
My signature style is making the eyes the striking, defining feature of the look.
I love getting women ready for special events as I enjoy making people look the best version of themselves - transforming them in a way they never imagined they could look, whilst still recognising themselves in the mirror. I call it "The Bridal Balance"!
I also believe I’m a good person to have around on a wedding day as I have a calming nature and am able to work well under pressure.
Brands I love using are; Chantacaille, Surratt, Nars, Hourglass and Laura Mercier to name just a few.
In my career I’m proud to have worked on some notable names including;
Yingluck Shinawatra (Former Prime Minister of Thailand) | Amanda Wakeley OBE| M.I.A | Caroline Flack |Laura Whitmore | Lily Cole
Janice Dickenson | India Reynolds | Rosie Wicks | Lauren Pope |AJ Odudu | Gillian Mckeith | Shruti Hassan | Amy Jackson | Laura Pradelska | Dr. Sarah Jarvis |Lisa Maffia (So Solid Crew) | Su-Elise Nash (Mis-Teeq) | Andy Parsons | Joshua Raiden
I decided to book Natasha for my wedding. We had a very early start, but Natasha was right on time and kept us on schedule. The whole experience was so calm and relaxing. I look at my wedding photographs now and know
that my hair and make-up could not have looked any better.

'From the make up trial through to the wedding day, Natasha went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable and confident in my wedding look.
I requested Natasha to do my bridal make-up as I loved her work from the photos shown, and I also requested make up or hair for my 6 bridesmaids. Natasha recognised the time frame before the wedding wouldn't be enough for everyone to be made up to perfection and so contacted a colleague Simone who joined us on the day and took care of making the bridesmaids hair look amazing while Natasha focussed on the make up.
At the trial, Natasha took the time to understand the look I was going for and really listen, patiently talked me through the whole look as delicate layers were applied (in keeping with what I had requested) and as I asked LOTS of questions and provided me with all the info I needed (shades/brands etc) for the bits I was keen to have on hand for the big day.
When it came to the wedding day Natasha had an incredible calming presence and just absorbed the atmosphere and fit right in, arriving perfectly on time and working around any bits I needed to get done in between make up application and making sure I was happy with everything before moving on to the next bit. And I absolutely was! I truly felt happy, confident and beautiful and can’t thank Natasha enough for this!!
Natasha’s experience of working with bridal parties really shone through and that made a world of difference to the whole experience. If I ever need make up for a special event again I will be back!'
