I am Maxine Wilson, an Oxfordshire based wedding and bridal hair and makeup artist.
If you are reading this – CONGRATULATIONS! I hope that you are having a wonderful time planning your wedding.
A little about me – I retrained as a make-up artist following my own wedding in which my make-up was by far the most exciting part of the planning. I remain utterly entranced with the transformative effect of make-up and how it made me feel on our special day, as well as the look on my husband’s face when he saw me walking towards him down the aisle!
My main aim when enquiring, booking, at your trial and especially on the morning of your wedding, is to make you look and feel completely wonderful and amazing. I love seeing my brides head off for their weddings, and clients head off for their event, safe in the knowledge that they will wow everyone whilst still feeling like themselves. I love to apply make-up which will ensure that you look at your most beautiful, without being hugely obvious or visible. I use tiny corrective techniques to balance your naturally beautiful features and colour match the products I use to bring out your eyes and show off your hair. And not forgetting my favourite – the individual false lashes which really finish your look.
I pride myself on being calm and professional for your big day, whilst also regarding it as a total privilege to attend to my brides and clients. I LOVE being a part of all the excitement and truly believe that I have THE BEST job in the world.
I have trained with some of the most renowned make-up artists in the country and studied the theory and practice of colour matching, contouring and correctional make-up techniques. I have also learned how to photograph make-up and am pleased to be able to provide my clients with a few portraits of their beautiful, special look so that their memories last forever.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your make-up requirements!
