PHOTOGRAPHY AND MAKEUP SERVICE

We all deserve to feel fabulous!

Everyone wants to look their best for their photographs and we’re delighted to now offer a makeup service too.

Launched in 2016, after Collette underwent extensive training, the service means clients do not have to rush around before their wedding or photos, and instead they combine the two services that we offer. You might find it works out cheaper than booking separately too!

Our aim is to create one service by combining photography and makeup to offer one pleasurable experience, without the stress of juggling timings and traffic.

We have studio space where you can have a girly get-together and wedding makeup trial, or Collette can also come to you on location, at home or at a hotel – the choice is yours. Why not have a trial makeup on your hen night or engagement shoot? It’s the perfect excuse!

MAKE UP BRANDS & PRODUCTS

Our favourite premium brands and products to use during makeup sessions include Urban Decay, Mac, Bare Minerals and NYX Cosmetics. From primers to eye glitter, we are in love with it all.

For Collette, her personal all-time favourite has to be the Bare Minerals brightening eye primer. “It’s so complementary and can be worn on its own or with shadow blended in at the corners for a little more of a smoky eye” she said.

MAKE UP FOR EVERYONE

Makeup isn’t exclusively for photography clients. Anyone can employ Collette’s services for a flawless makeover, for any occasion.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS

Favourite for eyes: It has to be a warm brown. Sometimes we even use a bronzer! I know your thinking that this may be a little bright and scary but TRUST me! Its great behind the cooler tones of blacks and greys and even browns. He Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renascence pallet is amazing. Pretty pinks teamed with golds are of course also a favourite for bridal make up, very girly and elegant, this means that then it can all be about the lips!

Favourite long stay lipstick: Maxfactor 24hr Lipfinity in a nude tone, number 160 ICED, it been tried and tested this stays on throughout the whole of the wedding day, including the wedding breakfast. Definitely a winner in our eyes.

Favourite false lashes: We use Eyelure and Eldora lashes on all our clients, these are super glam and are the best quality.

Favourite makeup brushes: While in training, the importance of professional brushes has been learnt. Super in love with the Real Techniques brushes, Zoeva rose gold eye brush set and the Morphe brushes in particular, they are like magnets for powder.
