A bit about me…

As a Make up Artist first for Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, and eventually INGLOT, I couldn’t have asked for a better learning experience.  Working with some very talented make-up artists, I suddenly had a whole Aladdin’s cave of makeup to practise with. Customers from all different races and backgrounds wanted my advice and I was there to try out different looks on them until they were perfect. The other make-up artists I worked with there gave me the boost I needed to do test-shoots to get a strong portfolio and customers became regular clients.

I did a couple of weddings and realised that this is what I love doing the most. On my own wedding day, I did my own make-up that had to last as it was in 32 degree Ibiza sun. Prior to my wedding, I came into INGLOT every day wearing different bridal looks to try. I became a bit obsessive over the ‘perfect bridal look’ until I nailed it.

I now use this knowledge and personal understanding when I’m doing a bridal trial. It’s about finding the balance between looking like you’re not wearing much make-up and looking your very best on your wedding day. You want that Cinderella moment, where you look more beautiful than usual, but not overly made up. I think I’ve found that balance, and over the years I’ve picked up so much knowledge about the type of products to use for weddings and how much of them to use to make brides look amazing in photographs.

What My Clients Think

“Punctual, professional and meticulous in her craft”

“Laura, make up stayed put perfectly all day, despite almost constant dancing later in the evening, and a few tears earlier in the day!!! Well done, you did a fantastic job! Thank you”

“Laura was instrumental in giving me the confidence to thoroughly enjoy my son’s wedding day. She is a consummate professional at all times, ensuring that she fully understands individual requirements and wishes. She takes care to find out about the style of outfit to be worn and the type of occasion, so that the make-up complements and enhances your hairstyle, clothing and accessories. Although she takes into account your normal make up regime, she is not afraid to diplomatically suggest a different approach to accentuate your best features or to ensure that you look your best in photographs. She encourages you to try new techniques or products in a make-up trial without exerting any pressure to comply with her suggestions. As my son’s American wedding comprised an afternoon church ceremony and a lavish evening reception, Laura ensured that my make-up was adaptable for each occasion. I received many compliments on my make-up, which Laura ensured was not overshadowed by my hat!
Laura not only has a definite talent for using the correct products in the most suitable way, but her personality is also very engaging so that she makes a very personal private experience a pleasant and reassuring one. She has a very calming but encouraging approach, which is just what’s needed on such a big occasion.”

Wedding make up is a tough one as most brides-to-be want to still look like them but more glamorous. Laura listened to what I wanted and gave me advice when needed to ensure I felt like a ‘souped up’ version of myself on the day. I never wear eyeshadow but Laura’s application was flawless and I have since started to experiment with the tips she gave me!
