Why book a professional wedding makeup artist? Weddinga makeup Liverpool

Think about your wedding day, one of the most special days of your life. You’ve chosen the perfect dress, selected the most stunning flowers, reserved your dream venue, and booked a top photographer to capture it all. You want to be in the hands of professionals so that everything runs smoothly. You also want to look flawless and timeless when you look back on your photos and videos. Professional hair and makeup will make sure this happens for you, so it is just as important an investment (if not even more important) as your bouquet, your shoes, and your veil. Your hair and makeup will be front and center for the whole day and in every professional photo and snapshot. Today is the day to look fabulous, now more than ever!


Stress reduction


“Vicky did my bridal makeup and I can’t recommend her more highly. She kept me calm (especially in particularly stressy moments) and made me laugh. I consider myself quite an awkward person and I’m quite anxious but from the trial to the wedding, Vicky was kind, patient and just generally lovely and I felt so relaxed with her. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel valued.” – Rachel


Planning a wedding can be really stressful. That is not how you will want to feel right before you walk down the aisle. Booking professional makeup and hair greatly reduces the amount of stress experienced on your wedding morning. I pride myself in creating a calming yet fun atmosphere for my brides. Do you need a moment of calm? I will chill you out with a lovely facial massage, or play your favourite music on Spotify to create the serene vibes you need on this important day.


As well as removing the stress of doing your own hair and makeup on the most important day of your life, I also help manage the timeline of getting ready. Little things like getting the bridesmaids ready on time, reminding you to take your dress out of the bag so any creases fall away, knowing when to take your bouquets out of the water so they dry enough not to mark your dresses, making sure everyone looks perfect before you head out the door. 


Lights, camera, action!


“With my hair and make up, I can honestly say, Vicky made me look the best I ever have. It lasted all day (through all the dancing and hugs and kisses) and looks incredible in my pictures.” – Genevieve


You’re possibly planning on spending a big portion of your budget on recording your wedding day by hiring an amazing photographer and a videographer. They will be around you all day and all night, indoors and out, and you will be in the majority of the photos. As a professional hair and makeup artist, I have the skillset to create makeup that will photograph beautifully whatever the lighting, day or night, at whatever angle and look great on video too.

Preparation is key


“I was recommended Vicky by a friend that had used her for her wedding. After talking to her on the phone I felt confident that I had found someone that would understand my needs and my skin. I have suffered from terrible eczema since a baby and my skin is very dry and super sensitive. Vicky listened to my worries and put them at ease, she recommended some creams that have really helped.” – Jane


We will have a bridal preview, usually 6-8 weeks before your wedding day. I will do a thorough consultation with you to get to know you, your style, and your skin and hair type. Not only will we run through how you will look, I will give you invaluable professional advice on how to best prepare and care for your skin in the run up to the wedding. Your makeup will only look as good as the skin underneath. I also offer a discount on any beauty treatments booked with me in preparation for your wedding. 


In order to achieve the wedding hair of your dreams, you may need extensions, layers, or other treatments. I will advise you on what may be necessary to create a bridal look that will last and look perfect from any angle. I also work within a fantastic salon full of top hairdressers if you need any cut or colour services.


When you confirm your wedding booking with me, I send you a Welcome Pack with lots of helpful tips to help you get ready for your bridal preview and wedding morning. I want you to be as informed and prepared as possible to help you have a chilled time while everyone is getting ready. Your happiness and confidence is my ultimate goal!


All day and all of the night


“Vicky did mine and my 6 bridesmaids makeup for my wedding at the end of September. She is so professional, friendly and really listened to what I wanted. We all loved the makeup and it stayed perfect throughout the whole day. She provided a touch up kit, but I didn’t even need to use it! I would definitely recommend, thanks Vicky” – Chloe


Wedding days are long. Like really, really long. This is not the day to gamble on your hair and makeup lasting for 12 hours and beyond! Professional makeup artists know the right products to use so that your makeup is bulletproof. You can eat, drink, kiss, and cry (tears of joy!) with confidence knowing that your makeup will stay put. You can dance and hug and your hair will stay looking great. I provide my brides with a small touch up kit to top up their lips and blot any shine. Skin prep, primers, professional grade products all ensure that your makeup stays put for hours and hours. Enjoy yourself and party all night without the worry of your face fading away.

It’s a matter of time


“On my wedding day Vicky and her assistant arrived promptly and between them managed to get myself and three bridesmaids ready well ahead of schedule. This made the process stress free and we were able to relax and enjoy some champagne before we headed off to the ceremony!” – Karly


How long does it take you to get ready for a night out? Have you ever been working on your eye liner, only to get it uneven, try to correct it, then have to remove it and start all over again? Let’s not even discuss putting lashes on, or trying to wand your own hair!! A professional makeup artist gets it right the first time (and if we make a mistake, we know how to fix it quickly). We also know how to apply a flawless face in minimal time, so you and your bridal party have time to relax and enjoy your time together. The RELAX part is key! It also frees up time for you to see to any last minute things that need doing. There’s also the bonus of not fighting your bridesmaids for space or time in front of the mirror!


My kit is yours


“Vicky did my make-up and hair on my wedding day. She was absolutely fantastic and used the best professional products to ensure my bridal hair and make-up lasted well into the evening. She has an eye for detail and knew what colours would suit my bridesmaids and I, despite us all having completely different colouring and hair types.” – Caroline


I have been obsessed with makeup since I was a little girl. I have been a professional MUA since 2003. I have tried and tested most brands and products! My kit is stocked with only vegan and cruelty-free hair and makeup products and tools. I use many professional brands developed for film and television, as well as high end prestige brands, with a few drug-store essentials thrown in. Makeup for every skin type, colour, undertone, and age is in my kit. I am prepared for anyone and everyone! I also carry a large range of strip eyelashes from natural to full glam, or individual lashes if that is your preference. A makeup and hair kit like mine would cost thousands of pounds to put together, and you have access to all of this plus my 20+ years of professional experience for the most important day of your life.

The look of your dreams


“Having my makeup done for my wedding was probably my biggest fear of the whole preparation. But meeting Vicky for the first time for my trial, she completely put me at ease and put all fears I had aside. She listens to you completely and nothing is too much trouble for her, she even knows what will suit you when you are not too sure yourself. Not to mention she is incredible at what she does.” – Amy


Your trial, or preview as I prefer to call it, is your opportunity to make your dreams a reality. At the end of the preview, you will know exactly how your hair and makeup will look on the day. This aleves any anxieties you may have about your hair and makeup, and you will be certain that you are in good hands going into your wedding morning.


A professional makeup artist will do a consultation with you and truly listen to what you want. The preview is included in my bridal packages. I take the time to get to know you better so that I can envision exactly how you want to look on your wedding day. Pro MUAs have the skills to bring out your best features so that they absolutely shine. I can take your ideas and inspiration and tailor them to suit you perfectly. During your preview, I will explain everything step by step and confirm your satisfaction as we go. In the end, you will feel confident and relaxed that everything will look amazing on your wedding day. No surprises! You will be the most stunning version of yourself as a bride. 


Confidence that radiates from within


“Vicky did the hair and make up for my wedding and I can honestly say it was the best I have ever looked! My dad actually cried when he saw me. She is really friendly and made my sister and I feel relaxed and comfortable when we were getting ready on the big day. She got the style we were going for perfectly.” – Lucy


You know how great you feel when you leave the hairdressers, or when you go out wearing your favourite dress? Having professional hair and makeup done for your wedding will make you feel like that times 1 million! Investing in having a top hair and makeup artist who will make you feel wonderful throughout the process, as well as look fabulous all day and night, is invaluable for your wedding day. Feeling confident about how you look will give you a boost that will make you even more beautiful.

Treat yourself


“Honestly the most amazing experience I have ever had!!! Vicky is amazing. As are her team. I felt like I had a friend with me from the first appointment right through to my special day. My bridesmaids, mum and myself felt like we were Hollywood stars by the end of it.” – Georgia


If there was ever a time to pamper yourself, your wedding day is it. We all fantasise about what the celebrity life must be like, having yourself groomed by professionals every day. You are the star of your wedding, and you deserve the star treatment! Sit back, relax, and let the professionals do the hard work of getting ready for you. This is such a special day! Even if you feel confident doing your own makeup, take advantage of the opportunity to be fussed over and receive a professional experience. 


A priceless experience


This review from Glamorama Bride Charlie perfectly sums up what I aim to do for every client I have: 


“Vicky managed to calm the environment down with grace and much needed humour. She went above and beyond for me and all the bridesmaids. Before my bridal make up she made time to talk to me, playing me Bob Dylan and making me laugh. By the end I and all my bridesmaids (even the hungover ones!) looked incredible. She also finished early so I could have a prosecco and decompress. I don’t know how Vicky did it. The amount of skill both in the technical sense with bridal make up but also her wonderful people skills deserves all the accolades and awards in the world. If it was not for Vicky I would not have been able to get through the wedding morning, if it was not for Vicky I would not have felt like a beautiful bride. Thank you Vicky.” – Charlie

Tips for throwing a perfect winter wedding


The dress, the venue, the photographers, the flowers, the cake. These are all important parts of your perfect day, and hair and makeup is just as important if not even more so. Having a professional hair and makeup artist for your wedding day takes away the stress of getting ready, helps everything run smoothly, and ensures that you will look beautiful in all of the precious photos and videos that you will look back on in the years to come. The special experience of being pampered and looked after like a superstar is something every woman should have at least once in her life. What better time to experience the luxury treatment than on your wedding day?
