My name is Becky and I am a makeup artist working across Somerset and Sussex, UK. I trained as a bridal makeup artist in the beautiful city of Bath and have also studied in London with award-winning makeup artist Kristina Gasperas.
My studies have included corrective techniques, colour theory, makeup for photography and a range of styles such as natural, bridal and red-carpet worthy looks.
I believe that in every profession it's important to keep training and learning, so I continue to develop my skills with top industry professionals.
When I’m driving to a wedding through the countryside with the sun shining brightly, I just can’t believe that being a part of your wedding day is my career. My style is soft, harmonious and elegant makeup looks created for you as an individual and I find inspiration wherever I am.
When I am not creating makeup looks or responding to enquiries, I love to read, practice yoga and spend time with my loved ones. I thoroughly enjoy visiting new places, so continually driving to different wedding venues is fantastic. I always find beautiful parks, quaint pubs and end up with a long mental list of places to re-visit on my days off.
MY PERFECT SUNDAY
As I sit in a café in the heart of Richmond, sipping my second hot chocolate of the day, I want to let you in to my life and tell you about my perfect Sunday (or another day of the week if my Sunday includes a wedding, which would be just as perfect!). I'm not often one for staying indoors all day relaxing, however a pyjama day with films and great company definitely has it's place.
When I do get dressed however, my Sunday would start with a hot chocolate (have you noticed the hot chocolate theme yet?!) and a delicious pastry, usually a pain au chocolat.
I love spending the morning and early afternoon outdoors with family and friends, so in the warmer months I would go for a walk on the hills or a visit to my local beach, and the colder, more festive months would be a Christmas market or just a visit to a local café. My mind just slows down on a Sunday and I feel so peaceful, excited for the week ahead and I love soaking up the atmosphere. Later on in the early evening I would go home and put on my pyjamas (probably unreasonably early) and cook dinner, plan my week ahead and probably watch a film. I have developed a passion for photography, so my camera would probably be joining me for the day. Whatever I'm doing though, I always try and live life through my eyes before I look through the lens.
Not only is Becky an outstanding make up artist, with excellent product knowledge, she is one of the most professional, organised, and courteous people I have ever met. She is delightful to be around, and has an eye for detail that is second to none. I was thoroughly impressed, and I cannot recommend Becky highly enough
