Get to know Vanessa

How long have you been doing hair & makeup?
I’ve been working as a freelance hair and makeup artist for the last 7 years, specialising in bridal, whilst also working in TV, Film, Fashion and Editorial. 

What are your career highlights?
My career highlights have been working on two successful debut artist’s music videos and being one of the makeup artists backstage at The Brit Awards 2019.

Why do you love working on weddings?
I’ve been doing bridal makeup ever since I first started out in the industry and to be totally honest if it weren’t for my brides I wouldn’t be where I am today. There’s just something so special about being part of someone’s big day, from riding the emotional rollercoasters, to seeing their beautified, happy faces in the mirror looking at their makeup before they say ‘I Do’. The trust begins as soon as I meet the bride for their trial, and (pretty much) always blossoms into a lovely friendship then on. What isn’t there to love?

What are your must have products in your kit?
NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, Becca Cosmetics shimmering skin perfector, Charlotte Tilbury airbrush flawless powder, Glossier cloud paints (in every colour), Chantecaille flower harmonizing cream, Hourglass Ambient lighting powder, Kevyn Aucoin Etherealist super natural concealer….there are so many, but I think I should stop there!

Fancy name-dropping some celebrities or big publications you’ve worked on?
Work has been published in Cosmopolitan mag, Penny.mag and 1883 magazine
