Lauren, welcome to the 2018 Midlands Bridal Fair. We are so excited to introduce you and your business to our Brides- and Grooms-to-be!
We’d love to know more about you and how you got into the industry…
My love for make-up begun when I studied 10 years ago. I have been freelancing ever since. Bridal make-up is my passion and I’ve been lucky to have met some amazing clients along the way. I did an Eyelash Extension course two years ago to add to my list of services. I work with a few incredible hairstylists and we travel together to do weddings.
What services and expertise does your business offer to clients?
Professional make-up, hairstyling and lash services.
How long have you been doing this for?
I’ve been in the industry for over 10 years.
What do you love most about the work you do?
I love making each and every Bride feel beautiful and special on her big day. We get to meet such stunning personalities.
What differentiates your business and make you stand out? What are you known for?
We’re an efficient team of artists who always run on time. The Brides never have to stress about a thing on the day. We’re known for natural, flawless make-up that highlights a Bride’s features and enhances her natural beauty.
What can visitors to the Midlands Bridal Fair expect to see from you at the fair?
We’ll be doing make-up and hair touch-ups for the Brides. We’ll have our work displayed. We’ll also be running a competition.
Any client testimonial/s you’d like to share?
“Lauren did my make-up for our wedding. She was extremely patient and professional with the multiple fussy Bridesmaids and make-up demands from mothers & grannies. Most importantly, she made me feel like I was the only girl in the room! My make-up was stunning, I have never felt so beautiful in my life and it lasted until the early hours of the morning after the wedding celebrations with no touch-ups needed throughout the night! I highly recommend Lauren for any special occasion big or small, if you are wanting value for money with quality service!” – Kim Grieve
Tell us what inspires you. Any websites, people or companies that you follow?
I love following local make-up agencies in KZN and in South Africa. I think it’s good that we all support each other.
Any upcoming wedding trend forecasts?
I prefer to not follow make-up trends but to rather apply make-up that is perfectly suited for each Bride.
What advice would you give to Brides- and/or Grooms-to-be?
Don’t let the little things stress you out. Just enjoy the moment and have fun! The day goes by so quickly.
