Clare Lake, Makeup Artist
As a Bridal Make-up Artist my sole mission is to make every woman look and feel beautiful, and when better than on your wedding day? Equally, I understand the importance of achieving a balance between looking fabulous and keeping it natural and 'like yourself’.

When a Bride first meets with myself for her Creation Session (trial) I get so excited to create her dream look, from working through images that she has brought to my studio or indeed from looking through my own portfolio, I get so much joy to see my Brides beaming, i’m the missing piece in your makeup jigsaw :)

FAQs

What deposit do you require?

50% of your total invoice.

Where/when do the trials take place?

Creation Sessions (trials) ideally take place around 2 to 3mths before your wedding day, you should allow at least 1.5hr to 2hrs for your session. The session takes place in my gorgeous studio based in Medway, Kent.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

Its a good idea to bring along images of looks that you like, to give me a clear idea of the kind of looks that you like. Plus its a good idea to be wearing a white/cream (colour of your dress/outfit) blouse/top, especially if its a colour you don't always wear, as you will be surprised how different coloured clothes can change your overall look.

When do your require final payment?

Final payment is required around two weeks before your wedding day.

What is your cancellation policy?

In the unlikely event that you need to cancel your booking, you must do so at least 8 weeks before the confirmed date in writing and with a telephone phone call. Cancellations made after this time will be subject to a 50% payment of all outstanding fees. Any cancelations made within 4 weeks of the date will be subject to 100% payment of all outstanding fees.

How long do you need on the wedding day?

Bridal party members will be around 35 to 45mins per face, with my lovely bride being in my chair for around 1hr. These are an estimate, as every booking is slightly different depending on chosen looks being created and products being used. But I always create a timetable, so you all know when you need to be in my chair, plus to be able to work closely with the hair stylist.
