THE PERFECT BRIDE

Bridal makeup is an art. Ensuring you feel beautiful on your big day is my No.1 priority. This is why I take your personal style into consideration so your makeup is just how you imagine on your wedding day.

 

This isn't a makeover, this is enhancing your natural beauty and features with mastered techniques and luxury makeup that's tailored to your skin.

Getting your desired makeup look the first time can be done, however, if you want to try different looks, products, or styles to see what works best on you, a makeup trial is a very popular option.

THE TRIAL

This is where we can sit down together and talk about what your ideas are for your makeup and what styles I think will complement you best, making you the most stunning bride.

 

Once we both have a clear idea in our minds, I will talk you through the makeup application step by step while I apply it, giving you tips and tricks throughout to help your makeup stay on for as long as possible. This can take up to two hours.

 

When you are happy with your final look, I will document all of the products we used and take pictures of your beautiful makeup so you can refer to it whenever you wish.

THE FULL GLAM BRIDE

A full coverage base that still feels light but covers any imperfections on the skin. Contour can be dialled up or kept natural. 

A matte finish is most popular for this to keep the skin looking perfect all day.

"What can I say about Eleanor, she is AMAZING at what she does. She made me feel like an actual princess on my wedding day. The whole process of the trial was fantastic and she really listened to my preferences. Her eye for detail is incredible and she also happens to be an absolutely lovely girl. My bridemaids and Mum all loved their look and it was a pleasure to have her spare the morning of the wedding day with us. I just need another excuse for her services!"

About  Me

My makeup journey began seven years ago during my A-Levels, I combined my passion for beauty with my love for art and photography. With a keen eye for what looks good on camera, I quickly transitioned from being an artist to becoming a makeup artist, receiving requests for special occasion makeup.

 

I honed my skills at City College Norwich, earning diplomas in Media Hair and Makeup with distinction. I had the privilege of learning from top industry professionals, including celebrity makeup artist Louise Young.

 

I've since gained extensive experience in both the film and wedding industries. In the film sector, I've had the opportunity to work on productions for prominent networks such as the BBC and ITV, where I honed my skills in high-pressure environments, ensuring actors looked their best on camera.

 

 

However, the true passion for me comes from the connection I have with my clients and brides. There is nothing that fulfils me more than seeing a face light up when they look in the mirror.

My clients return to my makeup studio in Norwich again and again to feel and look nothing less than flawless.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
  • What can I expect coming to you?
    That ‘feel good’ feeling is what I specialise in at Eleanor Harnden Makeup Artistry. Knowing that you’re booking a professional artist with years of experience and knowledge under their belt is reassuring to say the least. Out of the hundreds of brides I have had the pleasure of working with, I’ve learnt that the term makeup is so incredibly broad. Some of my brides know exactly the look they wish to go for, which is great. However, the majority are somewhat clueless and are seeking my expertise to guide them through the world of makeup. This is where both my skill and enthusiasm for makeup meet to ensure you feel the most beautiful version of yourself for your big day.
  • How far in advance should I book?
    Good question! I would advise enquiring 12 to 18 months prior to your big day for the best chance of securing your date.
  • How much of my budget should I allocate for your services?
    All of my pricing is found on my website for you to browse through, I think its super helpful when you can instantly see suppliers pricing to ensure they are in your budget. How much you spend simply depends on the size of your bridal party. I have a minimum booking of £490 for all weddings. This includes bridal makeup on the day alongside three other makeups for bridesmaids/mothers. I also offer my brides the option to add on one of my luxury makeup packages onto their quote.
  • What do your packages include?
    I really wanted to create two luxury packages for brides with both budgets in mind. It’s important to me that every bride feels a priority on their big day. Silver Package – A Touch Of Sparkle: Makeup touch-up’s for the bride right through till after the ceremony in time for your professional photographs A luxury lipstick of your choice for your wedding day that is chosen by you at your bridal trial. Add this on to your quote for only £150! Gold Package – The Ultimate Experience For only an additional £100 you will receive: All day touch-ups for you and your entire bridal party! Ensuring you look and feel your best no matter what. An evening makeup look is available for you to add more drama to the eyes or have a different lip, perfect for the party! A luxury lipstick of your choice for your wedding day that is chosen by you at your bridal trial. Add this on to your quote for just £250!
  • Can you also accommodate my bridesmaids/mum(s)?
    Absolutely! How can we miss out the girls?! If your bridal party is over 7, I may need to bring an assistant with me to carry out some of the makeups, so you and your party can still relax and not need to rush around on your wedding day.
  • How far in advance should I have a trial?
    I typically advise booking your trial in around 6-12 weeks prior to your wedding day. This will guarantee you’re able to book in with ease, as I do become very busy over spring and summer! I I’ll do my best to cater to your availability.
  • Is a trial important? What should I bring with me?
    In my opinion, essential. It’s a fantastic way for us not only to get to know each other but for me to really see what is going to suit you best and for you to tell me everything I need to know about your skin and makeup routine. Don’t worry if you’re clueless, I’m here to guide you through the process.
  • Why should I book with you?
    As you may have gathered from my answers above, I truly go above and beyond to ensure you have total confidence in me, which allows me to give you confidence in the way you look and feel on such an important day. Booking with Eleanor Harnden Makeup Artistry is reassurance you’re going to look and feel the most beautiful version of yourself. Book a makeup trial today to see for yourself!
