Hi! I'm Victoria, a cruelty-free 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. While I didn't know at the time where exactly it would lead me, since the moment I picked up my first professional makeup brush, I have loved every second of my journey to where I am today!

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 (well, you may also get a welcome from my big softie dog, Bramble, but he's just nosey and then keeps out of the way). 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,

Vic xx

Victoria did my makeup for my winter wedding yesterday, I have to say she did an amazing job for me, my mother and my mother-in-law. My makeup stayed flawless all day and was exactly how I wanted it. I received so many compliments. I would definitely recommend Victoria to anyone that needs a makeup artist.

Abbie Roberts, Bride November 2017

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.

Allison, January 2019

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

Rebecca Walker, Bride September 2018

 

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

Debbie Bowker,  Bride July 2017

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!

Caroline Ashley-Nevison, Bride June 2017

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. 

Upasana  Mandal Sykora, Bride December 2016

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!

Sarah Ward, February 2017

Nervous for my first make over. Victoria was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. When I  looked in the mirror I couldn't believehow good she'd made me lookI got so many compliments last night all down to Victoria's work. Thankyou so much again- totally over the moon!

Anna Marie, January 2019

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.

Mel Love,  February 2017

Vic was absolutely amazing! Gave myself and my bridesmaids exactly the look we wanted. She asked and listened to all of us.  The application was flawless-not too sure I should say this but it looked too good to take off! Thankyou so much Vic. Can't wait for the actual day.

Cheryl Blacker, Bride November 2017

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.
