About Me

Makeup Round Pink Watermark

Wedding and Bridal Make Up Artist

Hey girls! I’m Sophie – a self confessed makeup addict and ‘that girl’ that all her friends come to on a night out asking her to top up their lipgloss! I’m a self taught makeup artist based in Hertfordshire, but will travel to wherever your needs require me to.

I have a particular interest and passion for bridal makeup but also love creating soft daytime and glam evening looks. I have been practising my skills on close friends and family since 2018 but have recently started to branch further afield, realising after turning 30 that my dreams will not come to me – I must finally start chasing them!

As you may be able to tell from some of my *not so fancy* pictures (we like to keep it real here!) I am happy to work under any circumstance and pride myself on being versatile, adapting to any given situation.

I’ve known from a very young age that makeup is what I was born to do. My youngest memory of applying makeup was when I was about 7 years old and staying at my Grandmas for the week. I went into her bedroom and raided her makeup draw, choosing to liberally apply the brightest green eyeshadow I could find to my lids. I continued with this trend for the next year or so whenever I went there, choosing to add a light pink lip on certain occasions.

It’s safe to say that I’ve come a long way since then and tend to stay away from green hues these days!

Not really knowing what to do, I decided to follow in family footsteps and after 3 years of university I qualified as a Diagnostic Radiographer in 2016. As much as I love my work in the NHS, my heart and passion is with makeup.

I am your typical girly girl and love making people feel special and seeing how makeup can elevate an already beautiful face and complexion. There is something amazing about the power of makeup, not only the work it can do externally but the confidence and sass it can give someone after being expertly applied.

After recently myself becoming a bride in October 2021, and having attended many weddings, some as a bridesmaid, I soon realised that is where my passion lies. What I can bring to your day is a sense of calm, a relaxing, friendly face and someone who is happy to help out with any odd jobs on your special morning (feel free to ask me to help capture your Instagram boomerangs with your favourite gals or even make your Nan a cuppa).

Anything as long as the bride is kept content and happy, after all, I know personally how important that is on your special morning.

I pride myself on using high end, long lasting products such as Estée Lauder, Charlotte tilbury, Laura Mercier and Marc Jacobs to name but a few. Always tried and tested first on myself to ensure they meet my high expectations.

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a bit more about me. As you may be able to tell, I love to talk, so please feel free to get in contact with me and we can discuss all of your makeup needs together. Lots of love, Sophie x
