By Bristol Bridal Hair and Make Up, Jun 1 2017 06:00AM
Lorna is one of our fabulous highly trained make up artists having had exclusive Dior training in the UK and Paris. We are extremely lucky to be able to offer brides-to-be the opportunity to book Lorna for their special day. We know everyone will love Lorna and the friendly professional feel that will make you feel at ease on your wedding morning. Here's what Lorna had to say when we put her under our spotlight...
Tell us about your training and achievements?
I have done the majority of my training with Christian Dior and have passed a colour stylist course amongst various other makeup studies and seminars held all over the UK and Paris, I have frequently attended makeup seminars to keep up with new trends and techniques, but also follow makeup very closely through media with my passion and wanting to keep updated, I was lucky enough to win an award for the best makeup consultant out of 700 Dior consultants for my customer service and makeup skill and was rewarded with a trip to Paris to work alongside side famous artists for the week which was truly inspiring! I've also won a makeup masters award amongst others in which was extremely challenging being timed and projected so it was really rewarding to have won.
What have you done that you’re most proud of?
The thing I am most proud of in my line of work is the confidence we can give to people, I've had many clients who are so happy and overwhelmed with how special they feel after a consultation that could have been just what they needed at that time that becomes a very satisfying role.
How would you describe you make up style?
I would describe my style to be complimentary to my client,i always like to stand back to find their best features and make them shine, I love fashion and like to follow trends but theres nothing like a beautiful,elegant, classic look!
What advice would you give to a bride looking for her perfect make up look for the big day?
The advice I always give brides for there makeup style is always to be true to yourself and have what you feel comfortable in but be aware that 10% more will always benefit in your photos, your wedding day is a special day but your photos will last a lifetime!
Is there anything brides can do to ensure there skin is in the best condition on the day?
I will always ensure to find out with my clients what there skin is like during their trial and whatever the condition I enjoy being able to help the them to get the most out of there makeup by preparing the skin accordingly, then not only do you have beautiful comfortable skin but it looks great too.
What would be your piece of advice for the big day?
A piece of advice for the day is to give a bridesmaid the responsibility of your lipstick and touch ups so you don't have the worry, and most importantly to take every moment like it's in slow motion and to ensure you have a moment with your new husband alone to take in what a special and memorable day this will be for the rest of your lifes whilst your living it.
