If you are looking for a wedding makeup artist specialising in vegan, ethical and cruelty free beauty products, Michelle McHugh, the founder of The Shepherds Purse is your lady.
Michelle is an award winning cruelty free makeup artist and organic facialist who draws inspiration from nature, fashion, folklore and the beauty of the breathtaking Yorkshire landscape in her work.
Her philosophy is simple – to enhance your natural beauty by designing a look which fits you from the inside out. A flawless base of expert skincare provides the foundation for her timeless looks, which are lovingly created from a 100% cruelty free kit of dewy bases and romantic pastel shades.
The Flourish experience is a bespoke one. Michelle works collaboratively with her clients to create a personal vision. Radiating confidence on your wedding day is the key to looking and feeling your absolute best. Working with brides to achieve the best version of themselves for their wedding day includes a comprehensive consultation and a dedication to each individual’s taste and style.
The Flourish makeup kit is fully cruelty free. None of our products are tested on animals and we choose not use brands that sell to China due to their animal testing laws. Testing on animals is unnecessary in our modern world, so we support brands with an ethical conscious who have decided to take another direction. A large selection of our makeup kit is natural. organic, non toxic and ethical. We only use organic skincare choosing ethical brands, such as Neal’s Yard Organics, Tropic skincare and locally made skincare brand Totally Natural Skincare.
A full vegan makeup kit is available on request – please get in touch to request one, we’d love to hear from you.
Please also take a look at The Shepherds Purse Whitby guesthouse for romantic getaways, and floral millinery and bridal accessory designs.
