Make-up by Lauren Poole

I am a fully qualified makeup artist having trained at the famous School of Makeup in Stockport. I consider myself truly privileged to work with women everyday to create a look which makes them feel the perfect version of themselves.

Whether you are getting married or attending a special event, I would love to work with you to create your dream look.

I trained straight after A-Levels to be a Theatrical and Media Makeup artist, with the course also covering wig making, hairdressing and Beauty qualifications. I have always used these qualifications as this is my passion, doing many theatrical shows, face painting, hair and wedding makeup, alongside a full time job as a Chartered Accountant. Then the time came to re-focus myself back towards my passion, my makeup. I refreshed my skills at London School of Makeup, and then Izabelle Hammon, two top professional establishments.

Personally, I like to enhance and not hide my clients natural beauty, and to make them feel pampered and special.

My desire is to help everyone enjoy makeup, and their nails, and to not be afraid of taking an hour or two out of their busy schedules to have a pamper before a day or evening out. I love to make a Bride, her Mum, and her bridesmaids feel a million dollars on that special day, or to make a teenager going to their first prom feel like a princess.... so give me a call and enjoy a pamper before your special occasion!

 I’m Ruth and my journey into a career of makeup started from an early age. I spent my summer holidays working in a local beautician and at the age of 16 I assisted at my first wedding and I was hooked! I absolutely loved the buzz and excitement of a wedding morning and still do so to this day.  When I finished my studies, I went on to train with the super prestigious Ciara Daly Makeup Academy in Ireland and in more recent years I have trained with Kristina Gasperas Academy in London. Kristina is a wedding industry awards judge and previous national award winner. I continue to develop my skills and knowledge with regular training with top industry professionals. I have never felt more fulfilled and happier in my career choice. I really have to pinch myself that I get to do something I love so much for a living. I feel truly honoured when someone books me to be their makeup artist.
