Moisturise your skin at least twice a day in the week leading up to the wedding and don’t stress yourself out. There’s nothing more beautiful than healthy glowing skin.

How would you describe your signature look and what is it about your style that sets you apart from other makeup artists?

My skin work is beautiful; a natural look with a dewy finish and everything blended to perfection.
