Kim Stokes MUA
I am a hair and makeup artist based in Lincolnshire but totally flexible with travel so if you like my work, I'll go where you need me!

I would say my default style is soft glam makeup and soft, boho or simple, understated hair but I love lots of other styles too and can cater to what you need.

I hope we can work together to create your perfect wedding look.

Take a look at my pricing info and if you need more help with your quote, drop me a message.

FAQs

What deposit do you require?

I take 50% of the total amount to secure your date. This represents 50% of each individual member of the party, meaning that if one member cancels, their individual deposit is retained and only their remaining individual total is deducted from the outstanding balance. The deposit is refundable for 1 week after your booking is made, in case you change your mind and for 24 hours after your trial in case you decide I am not the hair or makeup artist for you. It is also refundable in the unlikely event that I should have to cancel or the wedding is cancelled due to a pandemic, natural disaster or other factors outside of our control.

Where/when do the trials take place?

It is preferable for you to come to me for the trial, however I am able to come to you if this is not possible. Travel is free within a 10 mile radius and any further miles are charged at 25p per mile. You should book your trial when you know that you will not be changing your mind about any major parts of the wedding such as your dress, colour scheme, overall style etc and when you know you will not be making any major changes to your physical appearance either.

How long does a trial take?

I allow: Bridal makeup or hair: 1hr 15 minutes Bridal hair and makeup: 2.5hrs Bridesmaids, mothers of, etc makeup or hair: 1hr Bridesmaids, mothers of, etc hair and makeup: 2hrs This is longer than the timings for the day to allow for discussions, changes to be made and a product list to be compiled.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

Please bring your hair accessories to your hair trial if you have them. If there is an item of your own makeup that you really love you may also bring that and we will discuss using it on the day however you do not need to bring any makeup.

When do your require final payment?

You can pay the rest of the cost up to 24 hours before the wedding.

How long do you need on the wedding day?

This will be discussed with each individual bride. Usually around 1hr for the brides hair or makeup, 2hrs for both, 30 minutes for the bridesmaids hair or makeup, 1hr for both plus 30 mins extra time for setting up.

What additional services do your offer?

I offer brow waxing, tinting and lamination and lip waxing. I would recommend having these done at least 24 hours before I do your makeup if you are having them done.

Do you have any special offers?

I do not run offers on bridal hair and makeup.
