Tamara, West London
I completed my training at The LA Make-up Academy & at Greasepaint School of Make-up & Hair in London.
I am currently working in fashion and film & editorial for magazines and I was the winner of 'Makeup Specialist of the Year' at the 'The Professional Beauty Awards 2015' and ‘Fashions Finest Make Up Artist of The Year 2012’.
I am passionate about hair and makeup for weddings and love making brides feel beautiful and special on their big day!
My favourite make up products are, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser, MAC Face & Body Foundation, Chanel Pro Luminaire Foundation, Illamasqua’s colours for eyebrows, YSL Highlighter & Make Up Forever Concealer.
My favourite hairstyles are feminine loose curls, waves, and up-do's which emphasise your features, enhancing your natural beauty.
My favourite look is 1950's inspired- feminine eyeliner with a soft eye socket and bright beautiful lips.
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for my wedding hair and makeup last month. My hair was perfect, just how I wanted it, and my make up was flawless. I had so many comments saying how stunning I looked, and a lot of that was down to your hard work.
Thank you for your patience and hard work on the day, even though it got a little frantic and rushed at the end!! I was so happy with the end results. Thanks again!"
‘I can't thank Tamara enough for making me look so beautiful on my special day. She did such a fantastic job. Tamara makes you feel very comfortable from the minute you meet, and she has the most patience!! Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of using her!!!
"I can't recommend Tamara highly enough as my hair and make up was flawless! Tamara is professional, friendly, creative and she made sure that my hair and make up looked extra special for my wedding day."
"Tamara kindly agreed to do my hair and makeup for my wedding last August. She is extremely well organised and focused on the task. I couldn't believe how fast she was as well making 4 of us looking beautiful in just 3 hours. Not only work-wise she is excellent, but as a person I can say I haven't met someone so wonderful for a long time. Charming, punctual and imaginative are just few skills I can highlight.
My trial hair and makeup session was very informative. I knew what the plan for the big day was and how to plan my budget. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a professional makeup and hair for a special occasion."
"I wanted to ensure I had the perfect make up for my wedding day and Tamara came highly recommended to me. Once I looked at her portfolio I knew she would be the perfect choice.
I used her not only for my own makeup but I also asked if she could do the make up for my mum and 4 bridesmaids which she more than happy to do. I gave her ideas on the sort of looks we wanted, she knew exactly what I meant and was very confident with doing it which really put us all at ease.
As she had to do a total of 7 people all by herself I did worry it might be a bit rushed, but she made sure she had plenty of time so we all felt relaxed and it was not at all stressful. Before she finished she checked we were all happy with our make up and touched it up just before we left for the ceremony.
The make up lasted all day and I had many comments both on the day itself and afterwards when people look at my wedding photos how lovely the make up was.
We were all really pleased with Tamara's work and would definitely recommend her to anyone that's is looking for someone to do their wedding makeup. Thanks for all your help!"
