Why brides choose me as their wedding makeup artist

Experience. I have been working as a professional makeup artist for over 9 years. My experience and knowledge allow me to create each look individually. Whether bride has blue, green or brown eyes, blonde, fair, pale or dark skin, plans classic, modern or beach wedding dirung any season of the year, I will always find a unique and the best wedding look for her 

Naturalness. My specialization is very natural, soft, light, easy, and modern makeup. My brides feel beautiful and stylish. Each makeup in my portfolio is a beautiful, radiant skin. The skin tone is the main feature of a beautiful bride’s makeup. Even if this makeup has light smokey eyes or red lips, it looks elegant and beautiful

Individual approach. I conduct a video call with each bride for a personal first meeting. This allows us to get to know each other better. During the conversation, client tells me about her wishes, and I will tell her my advices for her ideal bride’s look. Also, usually I make trial wedding makeups to find the best concept for the Big Day

Energy and balance. I am a person who finely senses the energies of others. This helps me create the most harmonious, benevolent, calm, and simultaneously joyful atmosphere for you. The wedding morning starts with a meeting with a makeup artist! 

The best cosmetics. In my kit, I always have the best luxury and professional makeup. Each product I choose is specifically tailored to the requirements of a natural finish and longevity. I am passionate about my work, so I keep up with the latest makeup trends. You will definitely see all new and top brands in my kit. For example, some of my favorite primers for bridal makeup are from the brands Charlotte Tilbury and Bobbi Brown. One of my favorite foundations is the unique product from Pat McGrath. Each bridal makeup is definitely performed with hits from Hourglass. The famous blush palette with cream and dry textures from Patrick Ta is a must-have in my kit

Bride’s comfort. Natural bride makeup is comfortable makeup. For a bride’s look, I always choose long-lasting products. But the main accent is comfort. Of course, for each skin type, I choose a special mix of foundation tones. But the main rule is that you should not feel discomfort or heaviness on the skin. I always do a test makeup before the wedding day to make sure that the bride feels comfortable in her makeup

As a photographer, I know everything about creating beautiful makeup for the camera. The wedding look will look perfect both in real life and on photographs

My approach to wedding makeup

Preparing the skin – the most important step in creating beautiful makeup. In addition to mandatory cleansing, I pay great attention to moisturizing. I often use serums as a primary step that gently moisturizes the skin. This is followed by moisturizing and nourishing at the second level. These are products that help protect the skin throughout the day. The next step is primer, it is chosen based on the type of skin

✼ Achieving a radiant skin from within by using the right base for makeup. I always work with different primers. For example, I often apply a primer that smooths out pores on the T-zone, and a more radiant product on other areas of the face for additional moisturizing and radiance

✼ Long-lasting but delicate and natural-looking foundation. In my kit, you will find more than eight different foundation brands – from Charlotte Tilbury and Dior to the famous shade by Pat McGrath. There is no one universal shade. For each client, I choose the exact foundation that best matches their skin tone. I often mix different products to achieve a balance of both coverage and radiance at the same time

✼ Beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows that create the perfect frame for eye makeup. I use pencils, shadows, markers, clear and colored gels for the eyebrows

Eye makeup with emphasis on natural shades and textures. My kit contains a vast amount of palettes with natural make up shades – from light to highly pigmented. Some of my favoutite colors are golden, bronze and pink 

✼ Minimal use of dark shades on the eyes. I prefer soft and light colors that create a modern look for the bride

Beautiful lashes and waterproof mascara. If the bride wishes to add false lashes, we always do a trial run, especially if the bride has never used false lashes before

✼ Natural and delicious shades on the lips. In my opinion, lip makeup is one of the key important details. Firstly, the lip shade should complement the entire look of the bride taking into account the shade of the dress, the bouquet of the bride and other details. Secondly, the wedding day is full of kisses. The product on your lips should be perfect for this. And third, the bride should always have a balm for lips, gloss or moisturizing lipstick to maintain lip makeup throughout the day

Refreshing, beautiful blush. My clients often say that they recognize my makeup by the style of blush application. Yes, it is one of my favorite accents. It is the blush that adds a special style, modernity, flirtatiousness and refinement to the look simultaneously

✼ Makeup as a ritual. Every beauty-making process is a special atmosphere, love, admiration, enjoyment. I love my work, you will feel it during the makeup. The makeup is not just a set of actions, but also a ritual that will help to create a perfect image, to show the best of yourself and to feel confident and beautiful

Booking your wedding makeup day

As experience shows, the best option is to book your date with me as a wedding makeup artist 3-6 months before the celebration. If your wedding takes place during the peak season (June-September), it’s best to book up to 12 months in advance. After discussing the details, scheduling a video call, and finalizing the desired look for the bride, a 30% retainer is appreciated to secure the date for you. In order to make the whole process smooth, it’s best to communicate your preferences and availability as soon as possible. And in this way, you can ensure that your wedding day makeup is as perfect as you have always imagined it to be!
