May Update!

May has whizzed by, despite all the rain! A super busy month packed full of bridal trials ahead of summer weddings as well as actual weddings taking place again. It has been so amazing to be back working doing a job that I love.  2022 is looking very busy in the most part due to postponed weddings and I have even had a few bookings for 2023 so do book early to avoid any disappointment.  Instagram @nikimakeup

Below are just some of the beautiful ladies I have had the pleasure of working with.

I also found time to do a bit of painting I am currently enjoying creating some spiritual artworks at the moment!  You can follow more of my art journey on Instagram @nikicreates.

I also have an Etsy shop and a website coming soon.

April Update!

Back to work month!  Three busy weeks back full of make-up lessons, bridal trials and shoots it certainly has been a whirlwind few weeks back to work.  I didn't realise how much I had missed my job until I was back doing it either, so I am very happy to be back doing what I love to do.

Here is a few of my candid phone snaps along the way:)

New ways of working... it is not easy doing makeup wearing a visor but it has to be done.

Another day another set up.  My office can be at a studio, wedding venue, clients house, hotel the list goes on.  It is great to work in so many varied and sometimes very interesting places.

Glowy skin on this bridal model and dreamy wavy hair.

Bridal Hair & makeup Trials have taken up a lot of my time over the last few weeks ahead of this years weddings.  Some brides I am meeting just weeks before their wedding day.

Make-up Heaven! My happy place.

How gorgeous is this models hair, I just went with the natural curl how could you not! Pink make-up complimented the look for a 'secret garden' themed wedding shoot.

I loved creating these dreamy waves.

Classic up-do bridal hair trialing.

Beautiful natural hair and makeup for this lovely Bride to Be!

My second wedding of 2021 how lucky am I to work on these gorgeous girls.

My favourite hair pic' has to be this!

March Update!

I have mostly been painting, meditating and reading this month : )

If I am honest its been great to have time to do these things that I never get time to focus on. I have loved it and now have to just manage finding time to do it when I am hopefully back to work from April 12th!

I have a lot of bridal trials to book in for April and May, I will be doing this around April 10th/11th.  I am looking forward to meeting lots of new Brides ahead of 2021 weddings.  I have also booked in some shoots already for April and have weddings going ahead from May.  My kit is cleaned and packed ready to go and I am excited to pick up an eye shadow palette and work some magic once again. Not so excited about the PPE but it has to be done.

I had my first Covid-19 vaccination this month which I am so grateful for, this was definitely a highlight of the month for me.

See some of my paintings below I find it very therapeutic to just sit and loose myself in painting for a few hours without a care in the world!  I have also set up an Etsy shop for sales of my recent prints so do take a look, all are highest quality giclĂ©e prints.

I am taking 2021/22 bookings. Please book early to avoid disappointment, £30.00 booking fee is required.

February Update!

I have spent most of my free time in February painting and drawing lips!  You can see some of my work below.  I will be having these made as giclee prints and added to my Etsy store soon if you are interested. You can also follow my creative shenanigans at @nikicreates on Instagram.

With regards to Makeup & Hair services after the roadmap announcement last week bridal enquiries and new bookings began again which is great news and 2021 Brides began to either finalise their dates or postpone to new dates based on the new guidance.  Fingers crossed all goes to plan or at least near to plan!  

I would just say 2021 and 2022 are both very busy now and I have unfortunately had to turn away a lot of bridal work so do enquire and book your date early to avoid any disappointment.  This will be the same with most wedding suppliers and venues right now.

I should be back to work from April 12th if all goes well over the next month.  I will be arranging bridal trials just before then with all Brides who have weddings in May, June and July being priorty. 

For all weddings over the coming months I will be in touch to confirm details one month before the date.

For all shoots, lessons and special occasions I am now taking new bookings from the middle of April onwards.

For all existing bookings for lessons and specials occasion's I will be in touch in the middle of April to arrange details for this with you.

If you need any further help regarding weddings, lessons and occassions please see where hopefully you can find most answers to what you are looking for and for any shoot enquiries.
