Hi! I'm Victoria, an award-winning, cruelty-free/vegan Makeup and Hair Artist from a little town in West Yorkshire called Holmfirth.
Welcome to my website! Whether you've found yourself here because you're looking for a bridal hair or makeup artist, or you are wanting to spruce up your own makeup routine, hopefully you'll find what you're looking for.
Back in 2016 I decided to do formal makeup and hair training and set up my little business. Roll on 4 years, and I have recently won Gold for Makeup Artist of the Year 2020 in the British Hair and Beauty Awards, and have been included in 'GoHen' UK's top 50 wedding makeup artists 2020!
I truly believe in beauty within, but I also acknowledge the power of makeup and how it can help give a little boost to someone's self confidence. This is the foundation of my business- to help you to look and feel the best you can. As I run my business from my home studio, you can be guaranteed a warm, friendly welcome, completely private to you. Client confidentiality and discretion is also of upmost importance to me.
I hope you enjoy looking around. You can find testimonials and photographs of previous work, details of all services I provide including prices, a Frequently Asked Questions section and of course, a page dedicated to how you can contact me.
Any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch! I hope to hear from you soon,
In order to provide safe, COVID-secure services, I have provided these guidelines that I ask you adhere to when attending my studio. These guidelines are for everyone's safety- I thankyou in advance for your patience!
Arrive on time- there are no waiting facilities if you are early, and I ask that if you are late you contact me so I can advise whether you are still able to attend your appointment.
Leave coats/ bags etc in your car if possible.
Sanitise your hands on arrival- I will provide this for you.
Attend your appointment alone- if this is going to be extremely difficult, contact me and we can chat through some options.
I will be wearing goggles and a mask for the duration of your appointment. I politely request that you wear a mask while I am doing your eyes, as I have to be very close to you during this time. Once your eyes are complete, you can remove your mask. If there are any reasons you can't wear a mask, please contact me and we can discuss further.
If you need to bring in personal items such as your phone, I ask you either refrain from touching them during your appointment, or use one of my wipes to clean them as you arrive.
I will be asking all clients (old and new) to fill in a new consultation form which includes a COVID-19 section.
Payment by bank transfer is preferred, but I will still be accepting cash.
Rest assured, all equipment and surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned inbetween clients.
Vic did my makeup and hair today for a friends wedding. Not being from around the area I was a bit unsure about who to contact but loved the looks she had created when stalking her on social media! I was thrilled with the results. She did a superb job on both hair and makeup. I would highly recommend her. Thanks again Vic.

Vic was going to be doing my hair and makeup for my wedding. I had a trial with her and she went above and beyond to get my awkward hair right. Unfortunately I have had to move my wedding date twice due to COVID-19. Vic moved my first date with no problem whatsoever but unfortunately can't do my new date next year. I'm gutted that she can't do my hair and makeup on this day as she's such a lovely person and made me feel at ease, and I felt confident in her skills and professionalism. I would whole-heartedly recommend her.

I thoroughly enjoyed my makeup lesson with Victoria. It was fun to learn about the latest products and techniques available, as Victoria was really knowledgeable. I would recommend it as a great way to freshen up or up-date your look.

Vicki did my makeup for my wedding and I could not recommend her enough. Even the morning of the wedding I asked her to change a couple of things from my trial and it was like she read my mind! I could not have been happier with the results on the day. Thankyou so, so much x

Just wanted to say a huge thankyou for making my wedding preparation and the day so fab. The makeup trial helped me decide on what I wanted and you delivered that look perfectly on the day. I was so happy with my makeup and it lasted all day. My mum wanted a more natural look and you got it spot on...she loved it! The bridesmaids had a few requests for slightly different takes on my look and you delivered perfectly.We looked amazing and were all ready on time. Thanks again xxx

Vic did my wedding makeup and was amazing! From first meeting her at my trial she was calm, confident,professional and polite. We chatted about my ideas, what colours would work best and came up with the look I was wanting.
On my wedding day she put me at ease, she was fabulous with my mum and daughter and just seemed to know what we wanted.
I would recommend Vic to any Bride-to-be, she's just fab!

I am extremely thankful that I had Victoria as my makeup artist for my wedding day. I had a British-Indian fusion wedding on a single day and I had a very specific requirement. I wanted my face to look natural and illuminating all day, but I also needed colours that would go well with my white dress in the morning and red saree in the evening. The lipstick she suggested was absolutely fantastic, and she gave that lipstick to me as a gift. I absolutely love this lipstick colour now. Thank you so much for introducing me to this lovely shade of red. She did absolutely amazing makeup on my face. I was surprised how stunning she made me look. She is friendly, professional and will definitely hear you out for your makeup requirements. If you are in and around Yorkshire, definitely go with her for your big day. Thank you very much Victoria.

I've used Victoria on a couple of occasions and have been extremely pleased with the results! She listens to what I want but makes suggestions when I need her to. My makeup always looks amazing with the eyes being striking but the rest of the face face not looking too 'caked on' like it has done sometimes when I've been elsewhere. I'm always ready to recommend Victoria to others and have already got her booked for my next night out.
Sara Dawson, January 2017
Absolutely loved my make up Victoria did for me. From start to finish Victoria was attentive to what I wanted. I gave a loose brief and let her work her magic and boy did she! I have eczema so It can be tricky but Victoria worked with that and balanced my skin tone out. My makeup was flawless but didn't feel like I was caked in it. It lasted all day and night and I had so many compliments on how nice it looked. I will definitely be using her again. Thank you Victoria!

Vic did my bridal makeup, plus the makeup for my bridal party, at my recent wedding, and everyone's makeup was exceptionally good. Vic took a lot of time during my trial to get an understanding of the look I was for, plus tailoring it to my skin type. The makeup stayed flawless on my skin all day, for almost 24 hours! Plus even though I was wearing more makeup that I would on a day-to-day basis, it felt very light on my skin. Vic is friendly, professional, personable and clearly knows her stuff so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Vic for bridal makeup or for any other special event. Thankyou!

Vic is an absolutely amazing makeup artist. She recently did my wedding makeup and it was just perfect. She is immensely creative and has such a talent for putting you at ease and intuitively knowing what will look good. Thankyou so much Vic !

I had my makeup done 2 weeks ago. I'm not used to pampering myself and had no idea what to expect. Victoria listened to the effect I wanted and spent time ensuring that with every step of the makeover she checked with me whether I liked what she had done. She made me feel like a million dollars and so special. The amount of people that commented on how good I looked was amazing. My mum booked in for a makeover the week after due to loving what she saw. I would highly recommend Victoria for all your makeovers and can't wait to be made over again.

Vic did my bridal makeup and hair about a month ago for myself and 2 bridesmaids. I could not recommend Vic highly enough! Not only is she highly professional and highly talented working her magic with her wands, she was an absolute pleasure to have around on what could have been a stressful morning. Vic took care of everything, structuring my morning to ensure we were all ready on time. Before the wedding I had a makeup and hair trial. Both looked amazing but I decided to go for a slightly different look for my hair. Vic was not put out by this at all and she happily embraced this by offering me a further trial before the big day. On the day of the wedding I had numerous family and friends around who all had forgotten bits of makeup and Vic was happy enough to lend a helping hand which was highly appreciated. I felt a million dollars and this was all thanks to Vic.She can truly work magic! If you choose to use Vic you will not be disappointed. Thankyou so much xx

Victoria recently did my makeup for my brothers wedding. I didn't realise she did hair. She offered to do it there and then without having booked a longer slot with her which I thought was amazing. She is such a lovely lady and really makes you feel comfortable (money can't buy that if you're not a girly girl who does feel uncomfortable easily). She really was a pleasure to meet and made me feel like a real life princess. Thankyou so much Victoria. I will be highly recommending you and will 110% be back again.
