How did you first get your business started?

I first started my business in September 2008 as soon as I finished my course I knew makeup was what I wanted to do! I originally started out working on photo shoots & makeover sessions then moving on to weddings when a friend asked me to do her bridal makeup.

Any tip for brides looking into your type of service?

When booking a makeup artist take a look at their previous work, their reviews from previous clients & the social media & website, you can tell a lot from these & if this makeup artist is for you.

Check for qualifications & insurance there are so many that don’t check this & in turn the makeup artist they book can’t deliver the desired results or doesn’t turn up! I’ve had many distraught brides call me on the wedding morning when there artist hasn’t arrived.

Have an idea of what makeup you want, if you don’t, have some pictures of styles you like, look at Pinterest & Instagram for ideas & inspiration.

Tell us all about you.

Hello I’m EstherMarie an Independent Professional Makeup Artist and I just love to inspire your Makeup. From a little girl I will always remember watching my Mom apply her makeup in the mirror and just loved how it enhanced her natural beauty. Most of the time I’m based at my Ashbourne makeup studio doing makeovers and running workshops but love traveling to locations all over the UK. I totally understand that everyone has their own makeup style and its very important that I work with every client to achieve this.


How did you get started in the wedding business?

It’s really simple, I had a client who asked me to do their wedding makeup and I’ve never looked back. I was amazed at all the planning and preparation that was needed and simply loved been part of her big day. I found myself helping her into her dress, taking the stickers off her shoes and held her dress when she had to get in to the car. Working as a makeup specialist on photos shoots, TV and magazines got me more heavily involved in the wedding industry. This is how I truly know how to make you look fabulous on camera without layers of heavily applied makeup.


What makes your business different?

With almost 30 years in the makeup, skincare and fashion industries I’m at an age that I feel I can relate to any age group. This I find valuable when consulting with your wedding party – flower girls, brides, bridesmaids and the mother of the bride and groom. I’m also a Qualified Trainer so very fortunate that my work takes me all over the world. To see how makeup is applied and shades used vary in different Countries it’s very interesting and diverse. I’ve had my own skin problems and know how important it is to allow makeup to promote your best features whilst being comfortable and caring on your skin. In fact, the biggest compliment I get from my clients is that their skin feels like they are not wearing makeup and it lasts all day.


What do you love most about weddings?

Every wedding is unique that’s what I love, starting from looking at photos and creating a look, it’s a very bespoke service and it gives me so much joy to be part of planning and creating it, All of my brides, bridesmaids and other wedding guests still stay in touch. I am very lucky that all of my work is from referrals and I have often been to weddings where the bridesmaids have now become the Bride and I feel like a member of the family. I also love that there are so many passionate people involved in the wedding Industry that are highly professional and really do care.


Any tips for brides looking for a makeup artist?

Weddings are definitely a service that experience and knowledge really do count. Looking at referrals and client comments on social media and website will tell you a lot. Some makeup artists have their own preferred look, so do ask, I can create all looks from Vintage, glamour, to very natural. Insurance ask for a copy, they should have full business insurance and professional qualifications in wedding makeup at the least. Remember that you may book months ahead so make sure its valid for your date. I do believe everyone considering having their makeup done on the wedding day should have a trial. It offers the best service and removes any stress on the day. Finally, photos speak a thousand words, build up a collection of photos of looks and shades you like, sometimes it’s easier to list what you don’t like rather than what you do


Anything else you’d like the world to know?

I’ve only entered one Industry award, in 2014 where I won the Midlands, UK, and Worldwide most popular wedding makeup artist. I was blown away with the hundreds of emails and comments that I received and how many clients’ voted for me I’m on the wedding Industry worldwide role of honour. This is a great privilege as the votes are from other wedding professionals To get your skin in great shape I offer a facial service before your wedding date. I’m fully qualified in eyebrow definition, application of all types of lashes. Also camouflage makeup should you have a scar or tattoo that needs covering.
