Bridal makeup has been a passion of mine throughout my career; I understand that to be asked to complete the important role of making up the bride is an immense privilege, a task i find highly rewarding. my job as your makeup artist is to ensure that when all eyes are on you, the bride, you look and feel like a million dollars.
i pride myself in understanding my clients needs and ensure to empower my clients to ooze confidence on their special day. over the years i have learnt that bridal makeup can take on a spectrum of designs and i understand that some brides may want a natural and sophisticated finish. however, i am also aware that brides are eager to showcase a full glamorous red carpet style of bridal makeup - whichever is your desire, i will ensure to emphasize your natural beauty to create a truly bespoke finish that showcases your personal style and flair.
When I work with my clients, I love visual inspiration, and Pinterest has to be a favourite! The finest of detail including your wedding colour palette, flower design, theme or season are used as inspiration when designing your tailored makeup look.
shown within the galleries across lauracotterill.com there are a variety of bridal and beauty styles, including real brides and behind the scenes snapshots. I have been extremely fortunate to be involved in a variety of weddings, religious ceremonies and traditions and want to say thank you to all my brides for sharing your intimate photos with me and my viewers from your wedding day.
