“Welcome to Model Makeovers, a Professional, Mobile Make-Up Artist based in Bournemouth.

Specialising in Bridal, Photographic (including styling), Special Occasion and Makeovers.

With 14+ years experience, Model Makeovers is proud to be recommended by 'FJB Weddings'.

About Model Makeovers....

I worked for Mary Kay cosmetics then completed an 8 week course in make-up techniques. More recently I achieved a Diploma in Advanced make-up from the Southern School of Beauty & also completed a 5 day fashion make-up course at the presigious DFMA make-up school. I never tire of someone looking at their reflection in her mirror and saying "Wow!" I feel privileged to be part of a brides special day and I enjoy making others feel happy and calm. I am proud to use all the latest high end products and upto date techniques.

I have years of experience working on photoshoots. I am often booked as make-up artist/stylist to help oversee the little details that photographers can miss whilst busy capturing the image. I suppose i am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to the final photo and I will always do my best to make sure the models look fabulous and ensure everything is just right. This saves valuable time for the photographer when it comes to editing photos! I treat my brides with the same level of perfection, so that they photograph beautifully too!

I have worked with many publications....Sainsburys, Rias Insurance, Smint Mint, Daily Express, Max Power, Reveal, Chat, South West brides, The Telegraph, Dorset Orthopaedic Clinics & regularly work with the National Slimming Clinics. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a professional. Please feel free to read a little more about the type of work I offer below and also browse my portfolio and testimonials page. I look forward to meeting you soon”

Bridal make-up (Mobile in Dorset & Hampshire): It's your wedding day, so you want to look amazing, feel special and most importantly still look like you! I believe in enhancing a brides natural beauty, whether you choose a natural or more dramatic look. I know how important it is that your make-up lasts all day and that it looks flawless and natural in real life, as well as on the photos. I also know (from memories of my own wedding day), how important it is to have calm, positive people around you on your special day and I offer that too. Please have a look at my testimonials page and Facebook reviews to see what other brides have kindly said. My work has been featured in FJB @dream weddings book, South West Brides magazine and Dream Weddings Magazine & I am lucky enough to work on 40-50 weddings a year. I use a variety of the highest quality products such as Laura Mercier, Mac, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Clarins & Benefit, all tested first to guarantee to photograph and last well into the night! I am also proud to be a stockist of the 'DreamWeave' mascara. I work using hygienic methods and will work within your time scale to make you look and feel beautiful, ready in time for photos before your big moment arrives! I'm fully mobile & come to your home or venue on the wedding day itself, enabling you to relax & be pampered...
  I am also available for Special Occasion make-up. Perfect for parties, wedding guest and not forgetting those summer PROM'S!

Photoshoots (Studio & on location) I have worked on many professional photoshoots in studios and out on location. I know which products photograph well under studio lights or for film/tv work. When I am not doing the make-up behind the scenes, I am able to lend a hand in styling the photoshoot so that everything looks picture perfect.  I have worked on many mainstream publications (see above) and am available on a half or full day rate basis. Please contact me for info.
