Tell us a little about you and your lovely business!
Hi! My name is Charlee and I am a bridal Makeup artist based in Wimborne but covering Dorset, Hampshire and beyond! I have been trading for 6 years as a bridal makeup artist after graduating from the Arts University Bournemouth with BA (Hons) Makeup for Media and Performance.
What is your favourite thing about working in the wedding industry?
My favourite part of my work is getting to know my brides throughout their makeup trials as well as the wedding morning where I think I can say I have witnessed all kinds of emotions from bridal parties, which can be really really touching! I absolutely love not just offering makeup services but being there to zip up dresses, drain and dry flowers and help in just about any way I can!
Are you spotting any trends for 2019/2020?
Winged liner and lashes is a style I have continued to watch grow and incorporated into my style portfolio throughout the last couple of years – and also the style I have chosen for my own wedding in July! Also I have continued extending my makeup range to include more cruelty-free products, which has (quite rightly so) been really popular with brides!
What do you offer that others can’t? What makes you unique?
This is the bit where I make a subtle joke about my unique personality – no just kidding. I have a distinct style, with a natural flair for ‘soft glam’ makeup, beautifully diffused skin and defined eyes tailored to flatter each of my brides, and look nothing less than gorgeous in front of the lens. I also find that being a bride myself at the moment has proved so helpful in understanding what each and every one of my clients is currently experiencing when planning their big day, and that provides some really healthy, relaxed conversation whilst carrying out bridal trials.
What five words would you use to describe your business?
Specialist | Professional | Modern | Friendly | Polished
What top tips would you like to share with our lovely couples planning their big day?
Book things sooner than you think – particularly with bridal makeup – I have 2021 brides booked in with a lot of 2020 weekends now also being booked up. You can never be too prepared when it comes to wedding services and there is nothing wrong with making sure you get each and every one of your favourite suppliers! After all the early bird catches the worm!
