Anyone recommend a make up artist in Wirral/Merseyside area?

I'm getting married in August but still have havn't found anyone to do my make up on the big day. I would rather go with a recommendation. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I live on the Wirral and have booked with Sarah Louise Elliott who was recommended to me. She will be driving from Boston, but I know she is very popular. I had my hair and make up trial the other week and it was fab. She has a website if you want to take a look

    Hope it's helpful : )

  • I booked with

    She's based in Bebington. She was recommended by someone else on here... can't remember who though! image
  • Hi

    I had my hair and make-up trial yesterday with Rachael Bottomley. My mum and I were both very impressed.

    She is travelling to my venue on the Wirral and she is very reasonably priced.

    Good luck x
  • My vote goes to Jodie A Smith. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding, and also both Mum's hair and makeup and she was fabulous. Lovely person and so skillful - beautiful and defo not 'caked'. I thought she was reasonable too for how good she was and totally reliable. Can't give her enoguh praise.

  • I had mine done by veyepmakeup and loved it. They work in Liverpool but came to Thornton Hall hotel to do mine and Mums makeup
  • Hi Ladies

    Just thought I'd let you know I had my hair and makeup trial with Kathryn McCloskey (makeupbykathryn) yesterday for my April wedding.

    She was absolutely fabulous!!!! She's friendly, listens to what you want, happy to try different looks and she made me look amazing!!!!
  • That's good to hear MrsKayley2b image I'll be booking my trial for June sometime. I'm a bit nervous about it.... I keep changing my mind about what I want image Does she have an assistant that she brings with her? I was just wondering because there;s me and my 3 BMs and also the MOG that want their hair and make-up doing image Thanks image
  • Hi Flyingspaghettimonster.

    Kathryn came alone for my trial, and is coming alone for my wedding day as far as I know, there will be me, 3 BM's and my mum.

    She'll be arriving at 10am (I get married at 1.30pm) doing everyone else 1st then me last, she said approx 30 mins per person and a hour for the bride.

    Hope this helps!

    I've been recommended Peaches and Cream by numerous people! They sound good, have excellent reputations and have a lovely little shop on Dale Street in Liverpool City Centre. I think they might have a website with details too.
  • Hi,

    I am also getting married in the Wirral and fpound it hard to find someone, I have eventually booked Ruth Mannion-Palmer, her website is [email protected], and she also does hair.
