About Me

A few words about me


"As a Bridal Make-up Artist my sole mission is to make every woman look and feel beautiful, and when better than on your wedding day? Equally, I understand the importance of achieving a balance between looking fabulous and keeping it natural and “like yourself”.


Hi I'm Clare and I'm very proud of the business that I have grown and the awards that I have won : Best Make-up Artist 2017-18 Kent Wedding Awards, Best Make-up Artist  for Kent 2016, Most Popular Make-up Service for Kent 2015, Newcomer Make-up Artist for Kent 2014 & awarded by The Wedding Industry Experts Awards, also a Finalist for The Kent Wedding Awards 2015 & 2016. 


My work has been featured in Kent Wedding Day (2016)  magazine with a double paged feature and A Kentish Ceremony Magazine (Summer, Autumn & Winter 2017 and Summer 2018),  Wedding Ideas magazine (Sept'18), as well as recently becoming a Huffington Post blogger in 2017.  


As well as Brides, I've been lucky enough to work with celebrities and have the following on my client list:  Made in Chelsea, NBC Universal, Pinewood Studios, News UK (The Sunday Times, The Sun & Fabulous Magazine).


I'm a pro member for the following brands:  Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Airbase (airbrushed make-up), Illamasque, Daniel Sandler.....but equally enjoying and using lots of fantastic brands, to give my clients the finish required.
