If these are your fears, then let me reassure you that you've come to the right place.
I also won't make you look like a tangerine coloured pageant entrant, over-powdered white faced ghost, black eyed zombie or a bad drag queen...
Maybe you're someone who's never really worn makeup before but is feeling the pressure to put your 'best face' on for the photos.
Or perhaps you love makeup but just want to sit back, relax and be thoroughly pampered on your wedding morning. Avoiding jittery eyeliner application and wobbly lipstick!
Don't panic bride-to-be, makeup nightmares and hair traumas do not apply when it comes to working with me.
I’m Susie Boylan, and it’s my mission to help you find a wedding day makeup and hair look that’s gorgeously true to you.
My approach to makeup and hair artistry is to
emphasize the power of your natural features
as well as your individuality. I'm passionate
about helping you to look frickin’ fabulous and to
feel awesome AND to have an enjoyable, hassle free
experience as the beautiful bride!
After ten years in PR and marketing; styling lookbooks
and art directing photoshoots, my creative flair (degree in fashion, working with Stella McCartney and London Fashion Week, specializing in wedding makeup at the London College of Fashion and bridal hair at Brighton Makeup School) and my experience in communications (this includes crisis management, so I'm reknowned for remaining cool as a cucumber during all kinds of calamities!) led me to start Bridal Makeup & Hair by Susie to support brides who want to show the best of who they are on their big day.
You hire a makeup and hair artist for your wedding day. They cake your face with a ton of thick gloopy product, backcomb your hair into a bird's nest and your lovely fiancé doesn't recognise the person walking down the aisle…
Here's a little more about the girl behind the giant makeup and hair kit...
While growing up, I absorbed my love of all things glam from my mum and Grandma. I'm also a bit of a romantic and I luuuurve weddings, so I feel very lucky to now be in the eighth year of such a rewarding job.

A sucker for a good old wedding
I got married in June 2014 and I have to say I underestimated the hard work, effort and attention to detail that goes into making your wedding the best day ever! But we took it all our stride and tried not to get caught up in sweating the small stuff. And it was an incredible day, the forecasted thunder and lightening stayed away and we had a beautiful sunny afternoon surrounded by the people we love most in life. Just glorious! (If you fancy having a peek at my wedding, you can see it here featured on Love Sussex Weddings blog >>>)
I have previously been a contributer and expert on the beauty panel of Your Sussex Wedding magazine where I helped solve reader's makeup and beauty dilemmas.
You too can have a makeup and hair look gorgeously true to you...
I am always more than happy to talk on the phone or meet for a cuppa and have a chat about your bridal makeup needs.
