Kim Stokes MUA
I would describe the style of makeup I do as 'soft glam'. I can go lighter or heavier as required, within reason, but I am not about the 'Instagram look'. You will not find a cut crease or a heavily carved out brow anywhere in my portfolio! I think that this style is very well suited to bridal work which happens to be my favourite kind of work to do.
For hair, I am versatile with the types of styles I can do, but I really love creating soft, boho updos the most.
You can see examples of my work in my portfolio. I like to include plenty of before and afters so you can see the true effect of the makeup.
Please message me if you have any questions or require a quote.

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.
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.
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.
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.
You can pay the rest of the cost up to 24 hours before the wedding.
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.
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.
I do not run offers on bridal hair and makeup.

More info on my pricing
EARLY START CHARGE - Some weddings if particularly early, far away or both, will incur an extra charge to allow me to stay nearby (You don't want a half asleep hair or makeup artist on your wedding day!)
WEDDING EVE PREP - Sometimes it is necessary to put some, or all, of the wedding party's hair into overnight curls due to time constraints or party size. This will be charged at £10 per person and dependant on distance, the early start charge may be added too.
