All brides want to look their best on one of the most important days of their lives. Over the past 8 years Naomi has worked with hundreds of brides to achieve the look they wanted, whether it was enhancing their natural features or expressing their individuality; Naomi will help achieve exactly the look you want.

 

Wedding trial information

Before your wedding it’ll be great if we can get together for a makeup trial. For this I investigate how you usually like to have your makeup and what sort of look and colours you are hoping to go for,your skin type  and discuss the colour scheme and style of the wedding so these can work harmoniously with the chosen look. This all helps ensure that you feel confident and relaxed on your big day, while still being true to yourself.

The trial lasts approximately 2 hours and you are welcome to have a friend accompany you.

Usually bridesmaids and mothers don't need a trial but let me know if they would like one.
With regards the trial, I can come to your home but it’s usually better at my house in Coventry, as I have my full, extended kit here, giving you more choice.

I don't do wedding hair but I do know a few brilliant hair stylists if you need any suggestions.

On the big day

This is your time to have VIP treatment, I love working on weddings as they have such a wonderful atmosphere, I’m so honoured that I can be part of such an important day. On your special day I will, of course, come to where you’re getting ready!
I am more than happy to do as many peoples’ makeup that want it, we’ll plan the morning to allow enough time for everyone.
It tends to work best when the hair stylist and I work together taking turns, so when they are working on someone’s hair, I can be doing someone else’s makeup. This will save you time getting ready.
We will need at least an hour when doing the bridal makeup to make sure we have enough time to get the makeup looking perfect and give you the pampering you deserve!

I use professional makeup to ensure you look beautiful all day, most of my kit is MAC, Bobbi Brown, YSL and Estee Lauder but please contact me if you have any special requirements.
My extensive kit allows the makeup to be tailored to your skin type to ensure the makeup will be long-lasting (a lot of the makeup, especially around the eyes, is water-resistant as it can be an emotional day) and can incorporate corrective makeup, for example I am experienced in covering tattoos.

False eyelashes are becoming increasingly popular to frame the eyes and they can be applied on the day at no extra charge; if you are unsure of how you will find them, why not try them at your trial?
Even after the look has been designed, you can contact me to discuss changes even up to the big day itself.

Bride - Lyn (May 2013)

"Naomi is a gifted make up artist who I booked for my December 2012 wedding. Naomi was the make up artist at my sisters wedding in 2010 and I was astounded by her talent and precision to detail. Naomi is a true professional and a cheerful character; she was an utter joy to have as my make up artist on my very special day.
I had a trial with Naomi just before the wedding which gave me such confidence in her ability and flair. On the morning of the wedding Naomi did the make up for me the bride, five adult bridesmaids and the groom’s mother. Needless to say the results were incredible and my wedding memories and album are outstanding.
I can’t recommend Naomi enough for you special day. I guarantee you will not be disappointment, in stark contrast you will be elated."
Bride - Kate (December 2012)

You and Louise made us feel so special and it's such a huge part, I'm so glad you were there. The photographer and hair stylist commented how professional you were and how at ease you made everyone which for me was fabulous. You made my special day perfect and would highly recommend to anyone and everyone! Just received the photos..I’m so chuffed!!! You are a genius with the makeup!"
Bride - Emma (29/4/2012)

"Thank you for making me look and feel like a million dollars on my wedding day, you gave me exactly the look I was hoping for. Just as importantly you really understood my skin type, put me at ease and were great fun. You made my bridesmaids look just as amazing and the make-up stayed in place all day - we received loads of lovely comments from our guests. You're a very talented make-up artist and I will definitely be recommending you to my friends. Thanks again!"
Bride - Rebecca Garratt (11/6/2011)

"Naomi is brilliant with people. Sensitive to their needs and insecurities, complimentary and reassuring with a bubbly outgoing personality. She appears unflappable and is infinitely kind."
Sue Hallissey (5/5/2011)

"Having never let someone else do my make up before, Naomi's professional yet warm and friendly approach put me immediately at ease. My make up looked absolutely stunning! It was flawless and exactly how I imagined I would look on my special day. I would recommend her time and time again!"
Bride- Amy Robinson (16/4/2011.)

"Naomi did my wedding make up in 2010. She is a close family friend and I wouldn't trust my make up to anyone else.  Naomi was very professional and took her time during our consultation to really find out what I wanted.  My make up lasted from 9am and didn't look any different at 1am; it was perfect. I recommended naomi for my sisters wedding in Dec 2012. The make up was amazing,  my sister looked quite the 'estee lauder' bride.  As bridesmaids,  all 5 of us looked natural and elegant too.  I would recommend Naomi's make up to any bride. Naomi is a typical girly girl and totally understands modern, sophisticated wedding make up."
Bride - Rebecca (2010)
