“My make up was fantastic, not only that but you were very calming on the wedding morning.”

“Everyone commented how good the make up was – natural but elegant, and it really made us feel great.”

“Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did… Getting my make-up done was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of the day.”

“Thank you so much for doing our wedding party’s make up last Sunday. I was impressed at your professionalism and patience. You got the makeup just right for us all. Would definitely recommend you to anyone planning a wedding or any event.”

“Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding – you’ve been lovely to work with and were a great calming influence on the morning.”

“Jaye is absolutely 100% a professional and a master of what she does. From my first consultation to my wedding day months later Jaye was a pleasure to deal with and made me feel at ease throughout. On the wedding day, Jaye was fantastic and the bridesmaids all looked absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much!”

“Thank you for doing such a fantastic job on the make-up for our wedding. You managed to create exactly the look I was after and I’ve never felt as good before. You’re incredibly talented… It’s a day we’ll never forget and I’m grateful for your contribution to that.”

Bridal and Wedding Make Up

Professionally applied makeup will give you a confidence and radiance to be admired by your guests and a perfect finish for your photographs. An understanding of how makeup photographs and how to make it last through out the day, combined with your own ideas, whatever you have in mind, will allow me to put together a bespoke makeup design, whilst keeping you calm and relaxed during the makeup application.

You may decide that you want two different make up looks, one for the daytime and then something more glamorous for the evening. In which case I can visit you for a second time later in the day at the reception venue, for example, to add a little bit more night time glamour and freshen up your make up for your evening celebrations. I am also available to stay with you throughout your day to look after the makeup needs of you and your bridal party.

At the make up trial and consultation I will listen to your ideas, discuss your colour themes and browse through any pictures or magazines that have inspired you. Then, after discussing your skintype, we can find the perfect foundation match to give your skin that perfect finish by moderating application and coverage so that it looks natural and not over applied (skin should look like skin regardless of coverage), and then carefully select the colours to complete your make up design. Once you are happy with your finished make up I will create a visual record of the make up and note down all of the products used. Do not worry if you have a change of mind after the consultation as any adjustments to your make up design can easily be incorporated into your make up on the day of your wedding.

A bridal trial and consultation can take a couple of hours, sometimes longer, depending on your requirements. I advise scheduling makeup trials 8 to 12 weeks before the date of your wedding so that it's not too far in advance or too close to the date itself, but I am happy to see clients at other times should it be required.

On the day of your wedding/civil partnership I will then arrive promptly at the agreed time and location. After the careful preparation and massage of your skin I will apply your make up to the design agreed upon during your consultation. I can also easily work around the requirements of your chosen hair stylist whilst you are getting ready. You will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy the pampering of having your bridal make up applied by a skilled and methodical professional make up artist.

Photography and Makeup

For the last couple of years I have been assisting a local photographer at weddings and building my own photography portfolio. A Digital Photography Package can be combined with Wedding Makeup, Occasion Makeup or a Makeup Lesson, or booked as single service.

Wedding Photography can be booked for 3hrs coverage or 6hrs coverage. The 3hr package allows time to capture details and those pre-ceremony moments, the ceremony itself, and portraits and group photographs after the ceremony. The 6hrs package will include the same coverage as the 3hr package with additional time to capture moments before the wedding breakfast and also speeches.

A Pre-Wedding/Engagement Photoshoot is a great way for us to get to know each other and if you are not comfortable with having your photograph taken this will help you feel more relaxed and put you at ease when the camera is pointing at you on your wedding day. We just need to arrange to meet up, go for a short walk and have a chat. By the time we finish you probably won’t notice me scurrying around taking photos.

After the wedding day your photographs will be edited and then presented in a password protected online gallery for viewing and appraisal. Your finished photographs will then be sent using a secure file transfer service. You will receive high resolution copies along with a certificate for printing rights and low resolution copies for sharing on social media and email..

Wedding Makeup and Wedding Photography can be combined together. I would attend to your makeup requirements as detailed above, completing this an hour before your ceremony and at which point I would start taking for photographs of your wedding.

Makeup and photography packages can also be combined with Occasion Makeup and Makeup Lessons, and Portrait Sessions too. A Portrait Session would include makeup followed by a country walk while I take photos of you. Portrait sessions can be booked individually or in small groups such as best friends, sisters and mother and daughter(s).

Portrait sessions and Family Photo Walks are also available to book without any need to book makeup services too.

Make Up Lessons/Masterclass

Learn tips and tricks of the trade and how to create your favourite makeup looks in a one-to-one lesson or a group makeup masterclass.

During a Make Up Lesson we can explore how to get the best out of your skincare, make up and brushes. From learning a specific style to working on application, blending and other technical skills I will show you how to apply your make up flawlessly. I can also advise on you on how to choose and mix different colours, the benefits of different products and brands and show you how to get the best out of your favourite product.

Using the latest techniques JAMA can cover anything of your choosing, such as: smokey eyes and everyday eye make up, skin care, foundation and colour matching, editorial and fashion make up, and special occasion make up (such as bridal or prom, for example).

For a group of people a Masterclass can provide invaluable make up tuition from beginners to a more advanced level. Masterclasses can be customised to suit the needs and size of a group whether you are interested in pursuing a career in make up artistry or you are getting together with friends to celebrate a special occasion.

To learn about different techniques and the latest make up trends in a Masterclass, from small to large groups or makeup parties (such as some pre-wedding pampering, a baby shower or night in with friends), I can share my passion with you along with a little insider knowledge too.

Whether you're a qualified makeup artist or beauty therapist looking for a refresher, someone looking to brush up on their make up skills or you just want a little make up help!

Film, Catwalk and Other Commercial Projects

Every picture taken is the record of a moment and every portrait can capture a moment of perfection. Professionally applied make up can often compliment the skill of a photographer, the pose of a model and the vision of a stylist.

I am always happy to discuss your needs and provide my services to a bespoke project, please contact me for more information.
