Bridal Hair and Makeup Advice & Tips
We’re thrilled to welcome Kate Kelvin to the Aspirational Bride team! Kate will be sharing her expertise with us and providing brilliant advice and tips on bridal hair and make-up.
So, without further ado, here’s Kate…
Hi I’m Kate Kelvin, a professional UK hair and make-up artist specialising in natural make-up. I do a lot of work within the wedding industry! I started in media and beauty make-up 10 years ago when I made the change from working in advertising as an ad designer (with a trained Graphic Design and Art background). I left school not really knowing what I wanted to do but loving all things arty!
Now my work takes me all over the UK for fashion shows, photo-shoots, corporate event’s, TV, Theatre, concerts and Opera. My clients include Microsoft, The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Everyman Theatre, The Menier Theatre, Chief Make-up Artist and hair/wig stylist at Longborough Festival Opera, Cotswold Essence Magazine, Subway, Dreamgenii pregnancy products and West Weddings Magazine, where I write a feature called ‘Ask the Experts’.
Other clients include Mustard Model Agency, Women’s Own Magazine, Cow & Gate, Aptamil, Microsoft and Subway – to name but a few! I give my Make-up skills free for The Cotswold Care Hospice Charity and other local charities for their fashion shows and photo-shoots. I worked for 5 years in Theatre and Opera, this was good training for getting up my speed and confidence in high pressured situations, important training for weddings where of course hair and make-up has to be perfect! I am Wedding make-up artist and bridal hair stylist for many of the top UK wedding catwalk fashion shows and I was Claire Jones’ hair & make-up artist, when she was Harpist for His Royal Highness Prince Charles.
Look out for me on ‘Channel 5’s Celebrity Wedding Planner’ in the next few weeks, it’s top secret who the celebrity planner is, even I don’t know yet…!
Next week I’ll be posting the first of my articles giving advise and tips for your big day…
