Everything I Offer


Love Your Look

Kim is always privileged to be asked to be part of a Bride and her Bridal party’s special day.  Kim loves working with Brides to create outstanding beautiful wedding make-up.

As a professional make-up artist Kim offers her Brides an exceptional and memorable experience on their Wedding Day, one they will treasure and remember forever, by ensuring they look and feel amazing.

Kim will make every effort taking extreme care & paying close attention to detail to ensure that she not only makes the Bride and the Bridal Party look incredible, but that their time spent with her is enjoyable and that they feel utmost relaxation. 


The Trial

Kim recommends a make-up trial around 6-8 weeks before the Wedding Day. A minimum of 1 trial is required for all Brides. Trials will usually take place at the Makeup Bar within Borders Beauty Studio in Galashiels.  


A trial is the perfect opportunity for the Bride to discuss with Kim the style of the wedding and the look that the Bride wishes to achieve. Kim is very flexible during the trial to perfect the Brides dream look.

An agenda for the wedding day will also be prepared at the trial, this guarantee's a smooth running order taking into consideration any hairdresser's and photographers who may also be present on the day.


The Wedding Day

On the morning of the Wedding, Kim will travel to the Bride's home, hotel or wedding venue at a pre-arranged time agreed at the trial. This gives the Bride peace of mind she can relax and enjoy her very special morning without having to worry about a thing.


Kim will ensure the Bride and Bridal party's make-up looks flawless and beautiful before they leave for the Ceremony.  She knows how to apply make-up that will look flawless on and off camera and will last the entire day and night.
