As a wedding videographer, I come across a number of makeup artists throughout the year and they are the pillar marking the start of any wedding day. Their presence is not only a great sense of calm for the bridal party, but it becomes an integral part of the setting of the scene in any wedding film, bringing the magic of the preparations through with every brush stroke.

I first met Natasha through supplier friends within the industry as we were brought together to create a team of creatives for a new, unique local wedding fair at the beautiful Pilgrims Rest in Battle. By being selected as part of the team I already knew that she was exceptional at what she did, but it wasn’t until I met her that I really saw why. Natasha is the kind of person you want to have around on the morning of a wedding, she is fun, full of joy and laughter, and her presence puts you at ease. She is not only really good at what she does but it’s also really clear how passionate she is about it; because getting your hair and makeup done on the morning of your big day goes beyond just that, it sets the precedant for how you feel going into the biggest day of your life!

Below are a number of questions I put to Natasha as well as some absolutely beautiful images of her work (with images taken by equally talented photographers!). If you are on the look out for a hair and makeup artist in Sussex then you can’t go wrong with Natasha, and so with that here goes…

How did you get started as a makeup artist?

I always knew I was creative and used to spend hours on my makeup.

After being at college (originally wanting to be a midwife) I signed up to an evening course in

pattern cutting not knowing which way to go forward. I ended up being persuaded to enrol on

the art foundation course even though it was now October and the course started in September.

I got accepted and the rest is history!

 

What do you love most about what you do?

People. I just love how happy my type of work makes people feel!

 

What inspires you?

I think I just have a passion for what I do

 

What are your hopes for the future?

To carry on being able to meet many different incredible people whether it be clients or

other creatives. Also, to be able to venture more into the editorial world alongside weddings.
