Nicola Whitfield MUA
I am a award winning makeup & hair artist based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire. I love to create looks that are natural, radiant and timeless. I specialise in airbrush makeup, working with all ages & skin tones and I am proud to support LGBT couples.

All my brides receive a complimentary touch up kit with their package. I use only high quality cruelty-free products in my kit. My work has regularly featured in magazines & wedding blogs. I offer a variety of services including: airbrush makeup, hair styling, scar/tattoo camouflage & makeup lessons. If you like my style I'd love to chat with you about your day and work together to create your perfect look. Please feel free to get in touch.

FAQs

What additional services do your offer?

I offer a full day luxe service for brides wanting a personal assistant on hand throughout the day to tweak and adjust your style as necessary and a change of look for the evening . I also offer a biodegradable glitter bar for your evening event. Glitter bars are fun addition to hen parties or receptions and everyone loves glitter that biodegrades so it wont hang around afterwards.

When do your require final payment?

Final payment is required 14 days before your event as per my terms and conditions.

What deposit do you require?

I take a non refundable deposit of 25% of the total cost of the booking to secure your date and cover the administrative costs of your booking.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

Please make sure your skin and hair are clean. Wearing a light coloured top with a similar neckline to your dress is a great, to get the best idea of your look. If you have your veil and accessories this will also help to see your completed look. Additionally it also gives us the chance to try out how to wear them so we can really create your bridal style.

Where/when do the trials take place?

I am mobile so travel to wherever you are most comfortable. I usually recommend trials around 6-8 weeks before the wedding day as outfit choices and the theme of the wedding are decided by this point. Additionally both your hair and skin can change in tone and texture throughout the year which can mean colours may not suit you as much as they did season to season.

How long does a trial take?

I book out up to 2 hours for either just make up or just hair trials and up to 3 hours for a hair & makeup trial
