I am an experienced make-up artist who trained at Jemma Kidd Make-Up School followed
by The London College Of Fashion and a stint training at Joy Goodman Agency.

I worked from 2004 as a main assistant at D&V Agency on big production shoots and
shows helping artists such as Polly Osmond, Sam Bryant and Alex Box in the UK and US.

I have now worked freelance since 2010 helping brides look beautiful on their wedding
date and giving some make-up tips that can hopefully be useful for life.

I only use high quality products such as Mac, Shu Uemura, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier.
For a bridal trial there is no time limit and never too many looks to try; some people
love simple natural glowy skin and a lick of mascara, others like a vintage red lip and cat
eye- we will try it all!

I believe it is imperative that the bride try as many looks as she wants so she leaves confident
she will look better than ever for her big day- I know that is how I wanted to feel for my wedding
and that feeling of making someone look and feel amazing is what I strive for, and also what I
love most about my job.

For those feeling uninspired by the idea of make-up, I can recommend ideas with a bit of guidance
from things you like in magazines, some pictures of yourself and a little chat before we get going.
On the wedding day I leave plenty of time to set up, prep the skin and apply the make up to ensure
the experience is a happy, relaxed and enjoyable one for all.

I live in London but travel worldwide for work. I am available for bridal, editorial and ad work.
Please contact me for detailed rates and testimonials. Bridal trial rates start at £70,
wedding day rates start at £130. Travel is additional.

Holly was an absolute star and we all really enjoyed having her as part of our big day.
Our initial meeting was fun and really put me at ease. On the day she was so friendly and
professional and my make up looked incredible - I can't believe it lasted through tears,
speeches and so much laughter! Thank you Holly!

"Holly did a fantastic job. She was there with bags of time and made
me feel totally at ease with her professionalism. She advised me on
what would look best and we tried out various looks so I could compare
and choose the one I liked the most. One thing I found exceptionally helpful
was her experience from working with fashion magazines and brands.

She is young and very modern in her approach and made me look really fresh faced.
She took time to analyse my skin and with the combination of foundations, illuminators
and concealers made my skin look totally flawless. I would recommend her without
hesitation to anyone who wants to look a million dollars. I still have her details and
have recommended her to my friends on several occasions for special occasion make-up. "
