Good morning, beauties! We welcome you back to our pretty pages on the blog on this dark and dismal Friday morning. Boy, are we looking forward to the weekend, it has been such a hectic week at The Wedding Affair HQ; we’re prepping for two of our largest shows that start in just over one week! What are your plans over the next couple of days?
On that note, one very lovely lady that will be joining us very soon at our totally beautiful and inspiring Ripon Cathedral wedding show will be Charlotte Mallinder, a professional make-up artist specialising in bridal and occasion makeup. Primarily based in South Yorkshire, Charlotte is also willing to travel throughout the UK and also internationally for your special day and of course, to create your dream wedding-day look.
There are many reasons why hiring a professional makeup artist is a must for your big day, whether that be to get gorgeous glowing skin (that lasts, too!), or perhaps you’ve never really being able to nail that perfectly pretty smokey eye; a makeup artist, such as Charlotte are not only experts in their field, but too can be a calming influence on the day. Of course, your wedding is one day that you really do want your makeup to look flawless, so investing in someone with all the correct tools and products in our eyes, is an essential.
Here to tell us more about her services and how to get you feeling more beautiful than ever is Charlotte herself…
“Hi I’m Charlotte, I am a professional makeup artist based in South Yorkshire, but work all over the country. I’m not afraid of early mornings, challenging locations, working with you to create your desired look and helping with a few words of calm 🙂 On your wedding day I know that you want to feel as flawless and beautiful as possible, with no concerns about it moving or running. Making sure that you look just as perfect in the last picture to the first. The best way to ensure this is to hire a professional makeup artist, who will be able to offer clear advice about the best way to enhance your features and give you a perfect look.
Every bride to be deserves to look beautiful, and this is of up-most importance on your wedding day. To me, bridal makeup is all about creating a look that enhances the bride’s best features enabling you to look your absolute best without looking like a different person. I am well known for my elegant yet classy makeup looks, specialising in radiant, flawless and glowing skin.
I always suggest having a trial run about 6-8 weeks before the big day so we can work together to create the perfect look for you. It’s a really enjoyable day where we can experiment with lots of lovely products and I guarantee you will be happy with the results.
I constantly ensure my kit is up to date using luxury brands such as MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Nars, Laura Mercier, Illamasqua and many more, only the best for my clients!
My brides have been so thrilled with the special service given and how they’ve looked and felt on their wedding day that they have recommended numerous family and friends. Here is some of what they’ve said about me –
