Bridal Makeup Brighton and Hove

You will feel beautiful and look gorgeous with my flawless airbrush makeup. After a prior trial run, I will come to your chosen venue to do your make up and those of your bridal party, if required.


I have the knowledge,  I have the qualifications and I have LOTS of experience!


Let me be your personal make up artist on your special day. I am now based in Brighton, East Sussex. 




My 5 top reasons to have your make up applied professionally on your wedding day

  • Nerves: Who needs the stress of applying your own make up, particularly if you are not very confident in the first place? Don’t leave things to chance, call in the professionals. We will stay calm and give you the look you have always wanted without the stress.
  • Specialised Techniques: Makeup needs to last all day so you need the help of a trained makeup artist, like myself and my team, who specialises in techniques to ensure it won’t budge. Remember, you are being photographed from the moment you step into your wedding dress.
  • Skill Level: Professional photography will pick up every flaw so a different skill level is needed to prevent this. We can deal with all skin conditions and tones so this is not a problem.
  • Convenience: We will come to your home or venue where you will be getting ready so you can relax and enjoy the last few hours before the service, surrounded by your family and friends.
  • Recreate: You can easily purchase the products we use so you can re-create your chosen look again and again, e.g. your honeymoon or for any special occasion.

We had such an amazing day!!! Everything was perfect!! I want to do it all again!  I don't have any professional photos yet apart from one with Ruby, but once I get some I'll forward them on. I've attached a few I've received from friends! As you'll see my make up looked amazing at night still! My mum absolutely loved her make up you did and received so many compliments. A big thank you from all of us! You were fantastic and it felt so relaxing on what could have been quite a nervous morning!

Hi Sheelagh, just wanted to say a huge thank you for not only making me look amazing on Saturday morning but also making my 4 bridesmaids look stunning. Your makeup stayed on all day and we all look beautiful on the wedding pics! Thanks also for making my hair look perfect and saving my sisters dress! I will keep your details for future make-up needs!

Hello Sheelagh,
Sorry it's a bit late, but I would just like to say a huge thank you for the wonderful work you did on mine and my bridal parties make-up. You were a lovely influence on the morning, my confidence in you allowed me to relax and enjoy the pampering (even though I was a little stressed as most brides).
My now husband loved the make-up, it lasted all day and all of our guests complimented me and the bridal party on their lovely looks.
I would highly recommend you.
Thanks again.

We were all thrilled and had many many compliments from the guests on how great the makeup looked. Our photographer was really really impressed with you too.I have a couple of great photos that my bridesmaid took of you doing our makeup if you wanted them? Haven't had the professional ones yet.Once again thank you very much!
