Catherine Bailey, Make-up Artist & Hair Stylist

Contact this Supplier now

Hello, my name is Catherine and I’m an award-winning and experienced bridal make-up artist and hair stylist who trained at the highly respected London School of Beauty & Make-up. I won ‘Make-up Artist of the Year’ at The London Hair & Beauty Awards in 2016, before being nominated again in 2017, and I was proud to be a Regional Finalist at the prestigious Wedding Industry Awards in 2018 and again in 2020.

I’m based in Reigate in Surrey, which is about 40 minutes by train into either London Victoria or London Bridge, and I cover weddings in London, Surrey and parts of Sussex.

I’m proud to have done the make-up and hair styling for PR campaigns for several leading wedding dress designers and wedding accessory designers, and my work has also been featured in Your London Wedding magazine, on the cover of Your Surrey Wedding magazine, and on a number of top wedding blogs.

I use a wide range of the very best products in my hair and make-up kit, including cosmetics from Charlotte Tilbury, Benefit, Fenty, NARS, Hourglass and Laura Mercier. If you book a bridal trial with me, we’ll have an in-depth consultation, experimenting until we’ve created a gorgeous make-up look and/or hair style that really enhances your natural beauty, lasts all day, and photographs beautifully.

Friendly, kind and professional at all times, I take great pride in my work, and I always use the very best products and techniques to ensure that my brides look radiant, immaculate and flawless.

I was initially drawn to Catherine’s work because the end result was very natural and that was exactly how I wanted my make up to look. I was not disappointed! In fact I would go so far as to say that her work ensured the photos were simply outstanding. She made my make up ‘camera proof’ and it looked fabulous. Thank you very much Catherine; your work was faultless and I’d strongly recommend you to anyone.

My make-up was out of this world, I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I looked absolutely amazing!
