Askham Hall Makeup Artist

I love the fact that with my job I get to go to some of the most amazing wedding venues in the country. Askham Hall is definitely one of those, and I love working there.

This lovely bridesmaid was super clear about the kind of look she wanted and it, BRONZE and GLOW! I think we achieved that, do you?

Gilpin Hotel and Lake House Bridal Makeup Artist

On Saturday I was pretty busy as had two weddings. The first was at the gorgeous Gilpin Hotel and  Lake House, which is an amazing Lake District setting.

I am no photographer (I wish I was, but I think I’ll stick to one craft for now!) so sometimes I can’t quite show in the pic how lovely the makeup is. However, I think these pics, just taken on my phone do capture the look.

This gorgeous girl has a 4 month old baby, so basically like most of us wanted to make sure the dark under eye circles were covered, that her skin glowed and that she looked bronzed.

I prepped the skin with Mac Strobe Cream which is my fav base to make skin glow. I used Nars Sheer Glow which is a medium to full coverage foundation, however because it glows it doesn’t have that matt look.

If you need a makeup artist at the Gilpin Hotel and Lake House please get in touch.

A new member to the Makeup by Polly Team.

Great news ladies I’ve got a new girl in the Makeup by Polly glam squad!

Introducing, Lauren….

Hi, I’m Lauren Poole, a makeup artist trained at the School of Makeup. I am delighted to have been asked to join Polly’s makeup team to help with her ever increasing diary of weddings. I am based just outside of Manchester, so although I will be covering all of Cumbria alongside Polly, I can also help out client’s who are getting married outside of the Lake District.

Polly is one of my closest friends and has been since we were two years old. She is also the reason that I got into this field in the first place, so to work alongside her is an absolute dream come true. Like Polly I provide both airbrush and more standard makeup application.

I look forward to working with you to create your flawless wedding look.

My Logo

Loving my updated logo design! When I first started my business, I designed the logo myself with my limited design skills, I’ve just had it tweaked by an actual graphic designer so it looks a little more professional and I am loving it!

SOS Makeup Artist at The Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel

Makeup Artist at The Laura Ashley Belsfield Hotel

A couple of weeks ago I had a bit of an SOS call.

I’d just done a wedding at the lovely Wild Boar Hotel in Crook, had got home and was about to put my feet up for 15 minutes before getting myself ready to go to a ball, which is a bit of a rare treat for me to be going to a glam event, I was very excited for my Cinderella moment at the ball and to dance with my Prince, well I was happy to settle for my husband.

All was going to plan until literally I sat down after such a busy morning of work. It was a very distressed bride desperate for a makeup artist at The Laura Ashely Belsfield Hotel.

This poor lady was due to get married in 60 minutes. Her makeup artist was having trouble getting to her due to terrible weather and flooding and she asked if I could help, I hesitated for about 5 seconds before I thought to myself,

“This lady is upset on the most special day of her life, get yourself there now!”

So off I sped in my car and within 10 minutes I was in her hotel room with my magic brushes doing what I love.

And here’s the gorgeous result of my work and her stunning face.
