As a professional bridal makeup artist London with many years of experience and many happy clients, my mobile makeup services are available in London and the South East.
I only use luxury products, which are perfect for sensitive skin and creating that all-important look that will last all day.
From natural to glamorous (with or without airbrush makeup), I can create any look that you want for your big day.
Factors To Consider When Choosing A Bridal Makeup Artist
Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. It is your day, and therefore, it must be as perfect as possible.
However, you shouldn’t only invest your time and money in the wedding event, the caterers, and the music. You should invest in how you’ll look, especially when you’re the centre of attention as you walk down the aisle.
When hiring a bridal hair and makeup stylist, you shouldn’t just choose anyone. You must guarantee that the people you hire are up to the task by making sure they possess specific attributes.
MimiD Makeup is a company that you can truly rely on to give you and your bridesmaids the best look for your wedding. Here are just some of the top things that I do that make me the best choice:
I enhance your natural beauty
A great hair and makeup artist can create a gorgeous bridal look that enhances your beauty and unique features. You can see first-hand in my portfolio that I don’t stick to the same style, and I do what works best for each client.
I listen to what you want and give you recommendations
When using my bridal hair and makeup London services, you can rest assured that all of your style requests will be taken into account. However, I use my experience and training to help you too, so if I think that a particular look is not for you, I will recommend a much better makeup style. Ultimately, though, the decision is yours!
I create a look that suits the wedding theme
Your skin tone, natural facial features, and wedding theme all play an essential role in your bridal makeup look. I am knowledgeable in choosing the right colours and makeup styles so that your makeup will match your wedding theme.
I use high-quality products
Your makeup shouldn’t be just for show. It should also be practical. For instance, weddings tend to be emotional. This is only natural, but no one wants to have their mascara smudged whenever they get teary-eyed. This is why I only use high-quality wedding makeup to prevent such nightmare scenarios.
I am the ideal London bridal makeup artist for your special day! You can entrust your bridal makeup look to me, and I can promise you that my skills and expertise will wow your family and friends!
How I Work
MimiD Makeup can make every woman’s dream come true: to feel special on her wedding day. Using my knowledge and skills, I will give you the perfect bridal makeup look that is awe-inspiring and breath-taking.
To do this, we must plan your makeup days before the actual wedding date. We can schedule a two-hour trial consultation where I will test several makeup styles on you.
Aside from your makeup, your bridal hairstyle should be considered as well. It can be a daunting task to find the perfect hairstylist who can work well with your makeup artist. To save you the hassle of finding one, I offer both hair and makeup services, so you don’t have to hire separate stylists for the job!
Most of my clients choose to have their hair and makeup done in one location, whether they’re staying in their house or a hotel. Going to separate hair and makeup studios to get dolled up is not reasonable, as time is crucial when preparing for the big day.
With that said, you can schedule a time and place, and I will punctually arrive to work on your hair and makeup, as well as your bridesmaids’. By doing this, you and your loved ones can have enough time to prepare for the wedding.
Depending on the size of the group that needs our services, I can bring several professional bridal makeup artists London with me. They are trained in the art of hair and makeup and can ensure that your bridesmaids have a consistent look. Moreover, working with my expert team will ensure that your bridal party is ready on time and stress is reduced!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much do wedding hair and makeup cost in the UK?
A bridal hair and makeup artist London-wide usually charge around £100 to £280. However, it depends on your requirements, as well as the products used. If you want to look gorgeous on your wedding day without breaking the bank, try my affordable bridal makeup package!
Who pays for the bridesmaids’ hair and makeup?
It depends. Usually, the bride pays for the hair and makeup of her bridesmaids. However, if the bride can’t cover all the costs, her bridesmaids can pay for their hair and makeup.
Nevertheless, this should all be planned, so my wedding beautician team knows how many people will need their makeup done. Notifying us in advance will give us enough time to accommodate all of the girls before the wedding starts.
Should I do my own makeup as a bridesmaid?
If you’re a bridesmaid, you may do your makeup for the wedding. However, you should make sure that your makeup doesn’t look too different from the rest of the bridesmaids.
This is because stylists for weddings make sure the bridesmaids have a consistent look.
If you want, you can learn how to put on makeup properly by signing up for my workshops and online lessons.
How much do makeup trials cost?
As part of my beauty service pricing, I offer you trial consultations for £90. Bridal make up London is never to be taken lightly, and we must plan your look thoroughly before your wedding day.
I will choose the perfect colours for your skin during the trial consultation and try out different looks, and this will take two to three hours, so make sure that you free up your schedule before your wedding day.
What is the difference between bridal makeup and regular makeup?
The difference is the longevity of the makeup. Bridal makeup lasts longer, and therefore, will also take longer to apply. My makeup artists never rush your bridal makeup because we know how important this day is for you. Moreover, we only use high-end products for the bride’s makeup for a long-lasting, gorgeous look.
Can a bridesmaid wear red lipstick?
Red lipstick can make you look more beautiful, feminine, and confident. Bridesmaids can undoubtedly wear red lipstick on the wedding day; however, there are many hues and shades to choose from. Ultimately, you need to make sure the bride is happy with the makeup choice. Fortunately, our team can help with choosing the right colours!
When should you do a makeup trial?
You can schedule your makeup trial consultation with me anytime you like, but it is suggested that you do it three months before the actual wedding date. Planning a wedding is time-consuming, even with a professional wedding planner by your side.
The trial consultation will involve testing out various makeup styles. I assure you that the specific makeup look that we’ve agreed on after the trial consultation will be exactly what you’ll get on your wedding day!
Should you get makeup or hair done first?
My wedding beauty specialist team recommends hairstyling first. This is because the hot hairstyling equipment can cause perspiration, and you don’t want that to happen while you have your makeup on. Moreover, it is easy to remove overspray from your skin if you’re not wearing any makeup.
Bridal Makeup Artists: Why You Should Hire One
Hiring a bridal makeup artist for the big day is essential; you don’t want to use low-quality products or have your makeup done by an amateur, as there is plenty of room for mistakes.
If this happens, you might end up redoing the makeup and/or run out of time, leaving you with no choice but to go for a bland bridal look.
With that said, hiring me as a beautician for weddings will ensure this does not happen. I use long-lasting products and various makeup tricks to turn you into a work of art. I can also balance your makeup for a natural look, which most people have trouble achieving, as they tend to put either too much or too little makeup on.
Best of all, hiring me to create the perfect bridal makeup look will take the burden off your shoulders! Planning an entire wedding day is truly exhausting; make sure to relax once in a while and leave the makeup to my team and me!

Helpful Wedding Makeup Tips
Here are some wedding makeup tips that you should consider for a smoother makeup process:
- If you’re going to wear fake tan on your wedding day, wear it during our trial consultation, so my wedding stylist team can choose the best makeup look based on your skin tone.
- Wear white clothes during your trial consultation, as your makeup can look different when wearing other colours.
- During the trial consultation, it is important to photograph your look from various angles to know exactly how it looks. If an area looks off when viewed at a certain angle, my bridal makeup artists London can adjust it for you.
- Find a good spot with lots of natural light, as these are the best places to apply makeup in. This is because natural light ensures that we are applying the right shade an amount of makeup on your face.
Your wedding day is one of the most important events in your life, and you deserve nothing less than the perfect look for this occasion!

WEDDING CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
Olivia Falcon Health and Beauty Director – Tatler Magazine
“Having worked in the beauty industry for over ten years, I am very privileged to know many of the world’s top make-up artists, but when it came to the important issue of my own wedding make-up – there was no question – it was Myriam who was my first port of call. Not only is she supremely talented with a great eye, matching colours perfectly to suit your natural skin tone and really listening to what you want, she is a great friend and instantly calmed my nerves. I would highly recommend her to any bride-to-be or for any occasion that requires a head-turning make-up look.”
Sacha Bonsor (Editorial Director “Boat magazine”) – London June 2015
“The overriding remark from my wedding was not where I got my dress, or who did my hair, but what face cream I had been using for the last few months…. I had not used anything different, but I had found Myriam, and I am still getting comments on my ‘wedding glow’ eight months after the event. I will never get anyone else to do my make- up, ever! Myriam is the best beauty secret any woman can hope to find.”
Izzy (London Christmas 2020)
“Myriam is a true talent! She is so confident in knowing what will suit you and if you put your trust in her the result will be outstanding. I wasn’t sure initially of the make up look I wanted to have on my wedding day but at our trial she made suggestions I loved, then just went for it, it was a total success she superseded all my expectations. On the day she put me completely at ease, she is just the warmest person and has a truly lovely nature – exactly what all brides need the morning of their most special day! Having done my make up to perfection she proceeded to ensure my Mum, sister and maid of honour looked utterly stunning too – under time pressure as well. There was no uniformity, everyone so individual yet clearly done by her expert hand!
So pleased I get to look back at my photos and feel so thrilled about my wedding look thanks to Myriam. Now I am trying to think of any excuse to have my make up done again… and again by her.”
Sarah Cox (London 18th May 2013)
I Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for doing mine and my mums make up so beautifully for our wedding day! I absolutely loved it and you were so relaxed and fab! Thank you! Ed and I had the most wonderful day, it was truly fabulous, the best day of our lives! Thank you for being so fab in the build-up and on the day!! Thanks so much Myriam – you were brilliant!
Lots of love ”
Emma O’Dell (November 2012)
“I wanted to write to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us last weekend. My mum, bridesmaids and I looked and felt very glamorous indeed. Our makeup was absolutely beautiful. It lasted all day and evening – right until we went to bed at 3am after hitting the nightclub! I haven’t seen the official photos yet but just by looking at the amateur ones (!) I’m delighted with how my makeup looked, I really was. We all had so many comments on the day and Marc our hairdresser was very impressed too. He works with a lot of makeup artists day to day but was really raving about you!
I’m so glad you were there on my special day- you made me feel very beautiful – so thank you once again”.
Adele x (West Wickham September 2015)
“Thanks for helping me look on the outside the same way I felt on the inside, priceless :0)”
Lots of love, Lau xxx (Cotswold September 7th 2015).
Mimi was my first choice on our wedding day to look after me, my 3 bridesmaids and my mum. She has a real understanding of people’s natural features and how to accent them beautifully, naturally (but with some staying power!) Mimi came to my home for a make up trial for myself and my mum and was very professional whilst being relaxed and amicable making the whole experience really enjoyable. We tried a number of looks to which Mimi gave her honest feedback – exactly what I wanted! In the end, I was greedy and went for 2 looks for the big day – a striking red lip and cat eye flick for the ceremony and a smoky eye with neutral lips for the evening.
