WEDDING MAKEUP IS ABOUT ENHANCING YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY RATHER THAN MASKING IT.
Benefitting from years of experience in the beauty industry, Ruth has been able to substantially build on her bridal make up artistry. Make up is a subtle yet important part of your wedding so Ruth strives to ensure you look your best on your wedding day providing a calming influence, helping hand and a friendly face on the big day. Ruth works closely with you to enhance your natural beauty using only the best mineral make up, Jane Iredale – The Skin Care Make Up.
A trial is recommended so you can know exactly the style we are going to achieve on the wedding day. Ruth suggests to clients that by having a trial it allows you to relax on the morning of your wedding knowing exactly how the finished outcome will be. This is an opportunity to discuss your make up requirements, go through any ideas or themes that you have and then try out some makeup looks until you are completely happy. A trial should ideally be booked 4-6 weeks prior to the wedding day and usually lasts up to two hours.
TRIAL: £40 per person.
ON THE DAY: Bride £65 other party members £40
DEPOSIT: A 50% deposit of the total amount is required to confirm booking the wedding date. The deposit is non-refundable should the booking be cancelled less than 8 weeks before the wedding date.
TRAVEL is charged at 45p per mile. The first 15 miles are free of charge. Costs to and from trial location & wedding venue/location of bridal party are charged if travelling outside Cheltenham.
CANCELLATIONS less than 8 weeks before the Wedding Day - deposit is non refundable. Trial appointment cancellations within 24 hours are required to pay the trial cost.
I would whole Heartedly reccommend Ruth to anyone wanting make up done. She was a joy to have around on my wedding day & she did a great job. She created the look which I asked for & the products were so light & breathable I felt like I had nothing on my face,
thank you Ruth x
I'm so glad we found Ruth to do the makeup on our wedding day. She was recommended by a friend and she added such a calming air to the morning. She came with a makeup chair and all the kit and diligently worked through the MoB, MoG, three bridesmaids and myself throughout the morning, having pleasant conversations and producing beautiful looks for all. I have very oily skin (yum!) and I was pretty worried about the makeup feeling or looking cakey, heavy, fake or greasy throughout the day but I have to say I still can't believe how good it felt. It felt like I was wearing nothing and the ever threatening "shine" was kept away all day. One of my bridesmaids who is also no stranger to shine (and also being a bridesmaid!) said that she loved the makeup and couldn't believe how good it felt and how well it lasted, the best wedding make up she'd ever had.
Even before the wedding, Ruth was wonderful - organising a trial (one brown and one pink eyeshadow eye to try the looks!!) and scheduling an eyelash tint before the day for sea friendly lashes on honeymoon! She also ordered a lip gloss for me and my mum, which is still my favourite.
Stop looking for a makeup artist and tick something of your Wedding To Do list - you've found her!!
Ruth was simply fantastic and we couldn't have had better for our wedding day. My brother-in-law is a wedding photographer and said it was the best make up he'd seen and it made a real difference to the photos. I don't wear a lot of make up so from the trial run, Ruth spent a lot of time and patience getting the look right for me & the mineral products she used gave the natural glowing finish i was after. On the day, she was a great calming influence and a pleasure to have around the houseas we got ready. We had a blessing in the UK and our main celebration out in Spain, which I wanted to take her out for because she was so great. Thank you for making our day that bit extra special, Ruth.
After having a few make-up trials with various beauticians in Cheltenham, I met Ruth. Unlike the previous salons I have been to, Ruth really listened to what I wanted and spent lots of time with me to make sure we found the look that I was after. Ruth was very accommodating and made me feel really relaxed. On the day, Ruth travelled over 20miles to do my make-up and coped with quite a tight schedule! My make-up on the day was exactly as we had planned and I was incredibly happy with the finished result. The make-up lasted all day long, and I was able to purchase the lip-stick so that I could add more for my photos!
I would highly recommend Ruth to any bride to be! It is such an important day, don't settle for beauticians who boss you around! (Rhian, Cliffords Mesne)
