Hello! My name is Gemma. I am 24 years old. I have 4 years experience within the bridal industry. Here you'll find some more information about me.
I'm a freelance Makeup Artist based in Kent however I also cover Essex, South east London and Surrey (Bridal Only). I specialise in Bridal and Occasion Makeup. I am a fully insured specialist member of BABTAC. I have been in the makeup industry for 7 years after going to college at 16 to study Makeup. I then spent 4 years studying Tv+Film specialist makeup at university, however I discovered my love for bridal whilst working for a well known makeup brand throughout my studies. I then went on to launch GemMakeup in 2017.
I pride myself on my professionalism whilst still being friendly and calm on your big day. You will rarely see pictures of me as my sole focus is on my clients and brides that I have the pleasure to glam. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of such a big day and meeting all the lovely bridal parties! I also love to help out in any way I can. This can be helping your bridesmaids into their dresses, making sure your flowers are as the florist instructed, assist with buttoning up your dress and staying with you as long as I can to ensure everything runs smoothly and your makeup is done to perfection!
My love for high end makeup products has become an obsession of mine. In my kit you'll find brands such as: Nars, Hourglass, Armani, MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi brown, By Terry, Laura Mercier, Urban Decay, Becca and many more!
I am fully mobile for bookings providing you with being in the comfort of your own home. For larger bridal parties I will hire a second makeup artist or recommend someone. I work alongside makeup artists who I feel provide the same level of skill to ensure your bridal party can feel confident with either artist. I also have a recommendation list for hair stylists for brides who have booked with me but are yet to find a hairstylist.
I describe my style of makeup as soft but glam! I love nothing more than to enhance features and making my brides feel like the best versions of themselves.
