A little more of an in-depth look as I’m sure you are interested to know who you are booking, or have booked for your wedding date.
Natalie started out in the Makeup Industry after a career in modelling when she was younger. Always fascinated with Makeup and Photographic work, she quickly became a lot more passionate about getting creative behind the scenes, than infront of the camera.
Quickly realising this was something she was extremely passionate about, and having always come from an academic background, Natalie enrolled to one of the best Makeup Course’s in the region, and undertook two years studying every aspect of the industry; from SFX Makeup, to Halloween, Prom, Asian Bridal, Stage Makeup and more. Always believing that Makeup is of course about skill and talent, but keeping her reputation and client safety at the forefront, Natalie has always aimed to achieve the highest level of qualification in the industry, to set herself apart and have Makeup Artistry as a career and not just a hobby.
Her modelling background quickly helped her with contacts in the photographic world, and she became busy with editorial, beauty and fashion work. But her real love came from real clients, where she could make a difference in someone’s confidence. Weddings were something Natalie fell into one day being asked by a family friend, and the rest they say is history.
Quickly getting the wedding industry bug, and completing 30 weddings in her first year of advertising, Natalie knew this was where her specialty and passion really was. Having now been in the Makeup Industry for over 8 years, and branching out into Skincare, Skin Specialism’s and more, Natalie is extremely passionate about making her clients feel comfortable and confident in their own skin both wearing makeup, and without it.
Natalie has travelled all over the world with her work. From Marbella, Mexico and Portugal for beautiful weddings, to LA, Hollywood and Malibu for Photoshoots. While in LA, Natalie worked with photographers who had shot the likes of Rhianna, JLO and Cameron Diaz. She visited locations on set from Palm Springs, Old Hollywood, the Hidden Hollywood Hills and even spent the day at a Hollywood mansion glamming up a team of beautiful models for their personal calenders. Natalie has worked with the likes of MTV, and on a number of Love Island celebrities as well as former Queen of the Jungle, Vicky Pattison. Seeing her work on the pages of The Daily Mail, Wedding Ideas Magazine, VOGUE, and more has been a ‘pinch-me’ moment to say the least.
But no matter the assignment, brief, or wedding- she gives them all 100%, and never believes in a one size fits all approach. Fashion and trends come and go, but talent, and an eye for flattering styles is something Natalie always believes will last.
Natalie’s warm and friendly mannerism allows her to fit in well at any wedding morning. She tries to go above and beyond, whether that is helping her brides into their gowns, calming down a nervous bridesmaid, making your granny feel lovely in her own skin and confident to wear a glamorous smokey eye, or simply just being there. For whatever you may need that day.
