I have been a freelance hair & make up artist for 23 years and have specialised in Weddings for 15 years. I have won multiple awards within the Wedding Industry for my work. I feel so lucky to wake up every day and do a job that I love and am incredibly passionate about. I ensure “my Brides” to look like the absolute best version of themselves on their wedding day and more importantly I help them to feel incredible!
Hi I'm Clare (*waving at you) and wanted to take a few moments to introduce myself to you and give you a little background about me. I'm married to an incredible man who without him, the dream of me becoming a Makeup Artist & Beauty Professional might never had happened, he has been been my constant support and cheerleader, for which I will be forever grateful. My Son makes me proud every day, as he continues to knock life out of the ball park and he really has become the most considerate and caring young man....and not to mention a pretty awesome Mechanic :) As well as these two amazing men in my life, I'm blessed with a third.....my little man 'Syd' my beautiful Pug, lots of character and he really does have me wrapped around his little paw! I'm very proud of the business that I have grown and the awards that I have won: Top 50 Best Makeup Artists UK 2020 with GoHen - Blog Top 50 Best Makeup Artists UK 2019/20 with GoHen - Blog Best Make-up Artist 2017-18, Kent Wedding Awards Best Make-up Artist for Kent 2016, Most Popular Make-up Service for Kent 2015, Newcomer Make-up Artist for Kent 2014 & awarded by The Wedding Industry Experts Awards Finalist for The Kent Wedding Awards 2015, 2016 & 2019.

Hitched Go Hen Blog .As well as Brides, I've been lucky enough to work with celebrities and have the following on my client list: Made in Chelsea, QVC, NBC Universal, Pinewood Studios, News UK (The Sunday Times, The Sun & Fabulous Magazine). I'm also a skin care specialist and UK Stockist for Eve Taylor skin care range and Volunteer Makeup Artist for the Look Good and Feel Better charity......I manage to keep myself very busy :) I'm a pro member for the following brands: Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Airbase (airbrushed make-up), Illamasque, Daniel Sandler, NARS.....but equally enjoy using lots of fantastic brands, to give my clients the finish required.
I have worked on 1000's of faces which means I can create any look you want whether it's natural or glamorous. This extensive experience means that I realise just how important a bride's makeup is - that you feel 'a million dollars', the make-up feels weightless, lasts all day and looks incredible on camera. I like to make my clients the the most beautiful they've ever looked!
I am an experienced, award-winning bridal makeup artist based in Kent. I have 21 years industry experience including 13 years as a self employed makeup artist. I am also a trained skincare therapist. I work using a variety of premium branded products and also specialise in airbrush makeup. I have an eclectic style, however the majority of my work is aimed at enhancing natural beauty.
