About Makeup By Lorna

I am a freelance makeup artist covering all aspects of makeup artistry, specialising in bridal/wedding makeup based in Thames, Oxfordshire. I have twelve years experience in Bridal makeup. I absolutely love what I do and it is an honour to be able to do the makeup for someone’s big day.

I am a fully qualified and insured makeup artist. I work for myself as a freelance, in all aspects of the makeup industry. Bridal & Wedding makeup is something which I am proud to specialise in, and I have over 11 years experience with this. I have recently re-evaluated my kit to make sure all of my products used are cruelty free and do not test on animals. Please visit my website to see more of my work.

I absolutely offer trials. They are very important in the process of Bridal makeup. They usually take place at my studio, a couple of months before the wedding date, however this can be flexible if you require it to be sooner or later.

You should ideally book your package with me as soon as you know your wedding date, bridal party numbers and venue. This is to ensure that I will be able to have availability for your actual wedding day as well as a trial.

I can potentially travel anywhere, within reason. For example, I travelled 2 hours to a venue to makeup a Bride and her Bridesmaids earlier this year.

I offer a discount of 10% off the total quote for Brides booking via this website.

On your wedding day, I like to allow approximately 45-60 minutes per person for makeup.

I could potentially stay, however, it would not be necessary as the makeup I apply together with the techniques used will last all day. I can return later on to do a freshen up of the look if required, at an additional fee.

Yes, I offer makeup for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. It is at a slightly discounted price too as they tend not to want as much, and go for a more natural look which therefore takes me less time.

I offer makeup for junior bridesmaids which would be age appropriate - for example, some lipgloss and a bit of blusher. The same applies to flower girls. These makeups would not be full face makeups.

Yes, I offer makeup lessons where I can teach you how to apply a look and also which products you would need to do so. I have done this before with a bride who got married in France and I couldn't fly with her at that time.

I am qualified in airbrush makeup but currently I apply my client's makeup in a traditional way.

I use many different brands to suit as many clients as possible. These include; Illamasqua, Too Faced, Bellapierre, CYO, Tarte, Eyeko, Urban Decay, Becca, Ardell and many more! I have added quite a few to my website for client's information.

All of the makeup I purchase is cruelty-free. I have a list on my facebook page of brands that are currently CF and a list of those that arent. I do not support any brands that test on animals either themselves or via a third party.

I can accept cash, paypal, bank transfers and also card payments.
