Wedding Makeup

Based in Mill Hill,  North-west  London, Philippa  is a professionally trained freelance makeup artist specialising in flawless looking skin.

Making you feel and look your best makes Philippa very happy.  The most important factor for Philippa as your personal makeup artist on your big day is to ensure you look like you but more fabulous!  You can choose to have your makeup applied very lightly all the way through to a strong look.  Philippa works with only luxurious makeup and also  offers Airbrish Makeup –  makeup which stays put for up to 15hrs.

Airbrush Makeup

Philippa specialises in Dinair high definition airbrush makeup which has been around  for many years. Her Brides love airbrush makeup,  as it’s hypoallergenic makeup that is lightly sprayed on to the face, is lightweight, long lasting (up to 15 hours), flawless, sweat proof and very natural. “My clients love the radiant and natural finish that airbrushing creates but most importantly that it lasts all day and night without any touch-ups.”

Philippa will offer you the option of having standard makeup application  or airbrush makeup

If you are a bride  who doesn’t like to wear very much makeup , this is a  great option for you as the results are so natural and you feel and look as if you are wearing nothing with a result of beautifully even, flawless and natural wedding makeup.

The Trial

- A trial and consultation is  VERY important  for a bride as it gives Philippa a strong idea of how you would like to look on your wedding day and also tests that your have no allergies to any products.

- In order to secure your wedding date, it is advised to have your trial as  soon  as you have found your dress (so that you know your style) .  Philippa will never put a time on the trial l but it generally lasts around 2hours.  She will either come to the comfort of your own home or you can come to her in North London.

- You will both discuss ideas  that you may have for your makeup, colour schemes (if decided), what style the dress is and how you usually wear your makeup.  Once Philippa has a good idea of what you would like she will try out your desired look until you are happy with it.

The most important factor for Philippa as your personal makeup artist is  to ensure you look like you but more fabulous!  You can choose to have your makeup applied very lightly all the way through to a strong look.  Lashes can also be applied to enhance the eyes.

Securing Your Date

As soon as you have had the trial, if you would like to secure Philippa’s makeup services for your wedding day she will send out an invoice where a deposit is required.  This will secure the date for you.

Your Wedding Day and Timings

Once you have decided how many ladies you would like making up Philippa will put together (at no extra cost) a schedule which also works around your hair stylist. This schedule will always ensure that you have a stress free day and have enough time just before your ceremony for any photos and/or relaxation time.

Philippa advises that you have your hair pretty much finished BEFORE your makeup but this is not essential. I also advise that where possible your hair stylist comes to the location where you are getting married, but this is not essential.

Philippa also specialises in Jewish Weddings.  She is happy to stay with you right up until you leave for the Bedekin. If you require her after the Chuppah for any makeup touch ups or a makeup change there will be an additional cost.

Philippa works with a team of hair stylists. If you require her to recommend someone please just ask her.

Should you wish to have more than 6 ladies made up (including yourself) please let Philippa know and she will bring in an experienced makeup artist to assist her.
