Hello and welcome to my website. Whether you're new here or a returning client, I hope you find everything you're looking for. If you have specific questions about wedding make-up and your big day, check out my FAQ page. If you can’t find the answer you're looking for then head to my Contact Page and I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

I have loved experimenting with make-up my whole life, but it took the birth of my first daughter in 2008 to push me to turning a passion in to a business. I went back to studying at 26 (feeling pretty old at the time) and trained in Make-Up Artistry for 3 years at Clydebank College, achieving an HND in Make-Up Artistry.

I was working on photo shoots and friends weddings as soon as I had the basics under my belt. One of the shoots I worked on was picked up by Italian Vogue and featured on their website, giving my work the Vogue stamp of approval (you can see the shot in my fashion gallery). My main love quickly became wedding make-up. Helping a bride, and her wedding party, find the perfect look for her big day is hugely rewarding. My aim when working with a bride is always “to make you look like you, on your best day”. That could be in full glam, a bold red lip or barely there make-up. Every bride is different and needs a different make-up.

I always try to keep the wedding morning light hearted and fun, whilst staying to the timings discussed with the bride so she can be stress free. You can see some of my past brides in my bridal gallery. If you’d like to discuss make-up options for your special day or occasion then I’d love to hear from you.


Love, Ailsa
