Hannah Monk
Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist


My views for makeup on myself and my clients is that makeup should enhance and not 'wear' me. Skin should be seen to be glowing, fresh and polished, not hidden under a mask of makeup. 
Most importantly, you need to feel confident and still look like yourself. 
I am mostly known for my natural and flawless makeup techniques which do not feel heavy on the skin.

I love to do relaxed but secure hair styles / trendy and modern / plaits and twists, nothing too structured and pulled back. Hair can be soft but secure enough to last the day. 

Bridal make up/ hair trial
A trial is essential for the bride, this should be at least 8 weeks before the wedding day, and will last for one - two hours for a makeup/hair only trial.
Hair and makeup trial will last around 3 hours. 
Its advisable to have no more than 1 person attending your trial with you, this allows me more time to get to know you.

We will discuss your ideas to create your perfect wedding day hair and makeup. Makeup is to enhance your natural beauty, looking polished and fresh and making sure you are happy with the end result while still looking like yourself.

Also to check you are not sensitive to any of the products. All products in my kit are high end from various brands to create a flawless base that is long lasting. 
- If you are going to have a spray tan for your wedding, it is advisable to also have a spray tan for your trial.
- Wear a cream coloured top for your trial, or a similar colour to your wedding dress. 
- In the initial booking, please email me any images, photos or magazines with your chosen hair/makeup styles. This helps give me an idea if i am the perfect artist for you.  My style is relaxed but secure, trendy but classic, minimal makeup to enhance your best features.
- Detailed notes will be taken to ensure everything runs smoothly on your big day.
- I recommend taking a photo of the finished look so you can see how you will look on camera.
- Why not plan a ladies night out after your trial, this will be a test for your make up.
- If you wish to have a second trial to try out different styles, the same cost will apply for the second trial. 
Trial and travel costs are completely non-refundable.

Wedding day
As i know your wedding day can be a stressful time for you, I will arrive early and do all I can to make you feel relaxed. Your make up should be applied after getting your hair styled and before you get dressed. I will work on your bridesmaids, and the rest of your wedding party before the bride's makeup. I am happy to help with any other requirements you need, whether its helping you get into your wedding dress, or even just to keep you calm, I will leave you feeling confident with a smile on your face ready to enjoy the biggest day of your life.

Mother of the Bride/Bridesmaid
A trial is advisable for your wedding party, to discuss makeup ideas that will compliment your wedding makeup and theme but will also be individual for each bridesmaid. 
Also to check for allergies to any makeup. This can be arranged for the same day as your trial, or if preferred a different date and time.

Evening make up service
Evening reception make up can also be booked for your wedding day, perhaps you would like more of a party look or a touch up to look fresh again for the evening reception. Please contact me for a price for this service.

Wedding make up lesson
For brides who wish to learn how to apply their own make up on the day of the wedding, or brides getting married abroad. A professional make up lesson is a great idea to help you achieve a flawless finish for the day. You will receive step by step instructions on applying your makeup. We will discuss the make up you already have and I will recommend any products that i believe are a must have for your makeup to look fresh and glowing all day for your wedding.
