Well hello there!
I’m Frances and I am a professionally trained Makeup Artist based in the South of England. I’ve worked with hundreds of brides across Hampshire, Dorset, Surrey and London, getting creative and perfecting their bespoke wedding look. I bloomin’ love my job! Being asked to be a part of someone’s wedding day is truly special – it’s a position of trust and one which I fully respect.
I’m often asked what made me want to become a makeup artist and to be involved in the industry. For me, it all really stems from my time at college gaining A Levels in Fine Art and Life Drawing – something which has been essential in perfecting life like skin colour (ideal for colour match foundation). Makeup artistry has always felt like a natural extension of this creativity in me and I often feel like making up faces is my canvas. Whilst training I was repeatedly praised by my tutors for creating a flawless base (perfect for bridal looks) which then prompted me to specialise in wedding makeup about three years ago – helped by my friends filling my diary up with their weddings! I really love where my job takes me and the people I meet along the way, making my journey even more exciting.
I’m inspired by many beautiful things: vintage elegance, classic & innovative design, Parisian & Italian beauty.
