Hi Guys! Welcome to my blog, if you’re interested in bridal beauty, weddings, make-up, hair and all things girly you’re in the right place… but before we talk about that, let me introduce myself.
My name is Alice Porter, I’m 22 years old and live In Fleet, Hampshire. I am a freelance bridal make-up and hair artist and have been obsessed with everything weddings and beauty since I can remember. When I was little one friend of mine used to come round and I would always manage to persuade her to let me do her hair and make-up, she’s ended up leaving my house with her hair looking like Annie and her face a mess more times than I can remember however, now we are both much older she comes round and we drink tea and fantasise about our weddings…LOL!
After I left school I went to my local college to train in hair and media make-up which I really enjoyed and then went on to further train at Delamar Make-up Academy in London. I thoroughly enjoyed my course and it has been one of the best things I’ve ever done, I met some amazing people, learnt so much and it has made me overall a better and more confident person. We learnt literally everything from TV, film and fashion make-up and hair to period styling, airbrushing, bridal, wig making, special effects and prosthetics.
So since leaving make-up school I have worked as a make-up and hair artist on feature films such as ‘6 Days’ and ‘Kingsman – The Golden Circle’ and have assisted on various productions including the ‘ITV Health Awards’ and ‘Tonight at the Palladium’. I have also started my own bridal make-up and hair business which is growing every day and is my main passion in life.
Now on to the important stuff… the BLOG! I will be sharing with you my how to’s and my tips and tricks on bridal beauty and general advice on weddings, make-up and hair. I will also be posting about my favourite must have products and tools, what I believe you should invest your money in and what isn’t worth it. You will also get an insight into my working life as a bridal make-up and hair artist as I will be sharing with you some of my favourite weddings I have worked on.
I hope you will enjoy and follow my blog!
