No matter how many weddings I do, I am always really honoured to be a part of a brides special day.

I can honestly say I have really enjoyed meeting everyone I have shared their wedding day with, and I really hope my brides enjoyed their day as much as I enjoyed the morning.

After being a regional finalist in 2016, I was delighted to be nominated in 2017 and would like to thank each and every one who voted for me.  However unfortunately I didn't get through this year :-(

The best thing about being involved in the awards is getting to see my scores, and all the lovely comments from my brides.

General Comments (in random order)

Jackie really is nothing but professional!! She made myself, my mum and 2 maids feel extremely comfortable with her which is essential in being able to freely say what your personal vision is and whether you are happy with what has been achieved or not. Not only did Jackie complete my make-up for the big day but she also did my hair and 3 other faces of make-up - all single handed!! Her advice and recommendations were brilliant too. I would highly recommend!!  
Mrs Rebecca Redwood (Crosby)

Jackie was a fantastic make up artist. She made me and the rest of the bridal party look fantastic. She organised help as she knew she would not have finished in time otherwise. I am so grateful because I did not need to worry about how I looked on the day thanks to her!  
Mrs Sarina Rumbold (Hayes)

Overall I am very happy with the make-up, hair and nails done by Jackie. She was engaging and really understood what I wanted for myself and my two bridesmaids who had three different 'stylings'. She also gave advice when I was unsure or looking for ideas. There were two small issues on the day... one with eyeliner and another with a 'bump' in my hair. However, Jackie took the time and patience to rectify what I believed to be 'not quite right'.  
Miss Melissa Leung

Jackie was so so lovely and chatted to me throughout doing my hair and make up which kept me calm! She did an amazing job on my hair and make up and I got so many lovely compliments on the big day!! Would 100% recomend her to other brides to be!  
Mrs Tyler Pope (Carter-Coles)

Jackie was brilliant from the make up trial to the wedding. She had loads of good advice and was really helpful on the day and also really calming! My bridesmaids and I were really impressed with both the make up and hair. It also stayed on all day!  
Mrs Charlotte Cleverly

Jackie was fantastic with all members of the bridal party, including a sneaky touch-up for the groom. From a flower girl who wasn't keen on having her hair styled to the Mother-of-the-Bride who wasn't used to wearing heavy make up - all tastes were catered for and nothing was too bigger ask. Gained a good relationship with Jackie prior to the wedding hair & make up trial through pamper parties and having my eyebrows shaped. Will definitely continue using Jackie in the future.  
Mrs Rebecca Reeves (Thomas)

Loved having Jackie as my makeup artist, I'd used her for the months previous to the wedding and so it felt like having a friend there on the day

I used Jackie for my hair but if I had known just how great she was going to be I would have booked her for my make up too. She was the only person I could find that was willing to give advice, try new things and help me find a style I wanted. She is so friendly and talented and made my day wonderful. She went above and beyond and even fixed my make up when I was unhappy with it (someone else had done it). Would recommend her to every bride!!  
Mrs Clair Chave (Jack)

I would highly recommend Jackie to anyone looking to have hair and make up done for their wedding. She was very professional and made me feel amazing on my wedding day. 10/10.  
Mrs Stacey Cook (Thomson)

It was reassuring that Jackie understood my skin tones and style as this made me feel confident in her ability to tailor my make up to suit my needs. Jackie not only did my make up beautifully she really enhanced my wedding morning by being supportive and attentive and she helped me to feel relaxed and worth a million dollars and I would highly recommend her services to other brides to be!  
Mrs Lisa Headford (Bendle)

Jackie is professsional & very friendly.. she is amazing with both hair & make up. I have n will be using her in the future. & have recommended her to my friends.  
Mrs Claire Barr (Flook)

Jackie listened to what I wanted for my wedding makeup and was excellent in offereing advice around spray tans too. She was extremely accommodating in creating the MOTB makeup look and was very professional throughout.  
Mrs Charlotte Revett (Gardner)

Jackie was fantastic from the first email, very easy to contact, open to ideas I had about make up, our trials were great, I felt at ease immediately. On the day Jackie managed to wow 5 very fussy bridesmaids, one mother of the bride and one very happy bride. Not only was the make up perfect on us all she also helped us get into our dresses and stayed around for any touch ups, I felt a million dollars on my wedding day and couldn't have asked for any more.  
Mrs Lizzy Mullings (Cornelius)

Jackie was incredibly calm, listened to everything I wanted and I was over joyed with the result.  
Mrs Deborah Crumpton

Jackie listened to what my wife wanted at the trial, made great suggestions and showed us several different styles. My wife has very long hair that was potentially difficult to deal with but this was not a problem for Jackie. On the day she arrived early and did a great job. My wife looked stunning and she was so pleased we chose Jackie.  
Mr Chris Duckett

Jackie was so friendly from the very beginning. She understood what look I wanted for my wedding and my make up was perfect on my wedding day.

Jax-glam made me and my bridesmaids look amazing on the most important day of my life  
Mrs Debbie Dudman (David)

Jackie was friendly and helpful throughout the trial and wedding. She did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup amd made a real effort to make sure it fit in with the themergency for the wedding. Her advice was really helpful in deciding on makeup colours. She also did a fantastic job and the bridesmaids and one of them is now planning on booking Jackie for her own wedding! Jackie even left is a wedding card and makeup, hairspray and tissues that I could use if needed during the day.  
Mrs Cerys Hodson

Jax Glam Beauty was awesome. She did an amazing job with my hair and make up, which lasted all day and all evening. She made me look and feel very glamourous as the mother of the bride. She also stepped in when the Bride was let down by somone else and she did a wonderful job on her hair also. Jax Glam Beauty was freindly and competent and was very adept at picking colours to suit my skin colouring and my choice of outfit. Lovely lady and and outstanding service. I would recommend to all.  
Mrs Sue Waring

Because she was friendly.  
Mrs Sarina Rumbold (Hayes)

Offered air brush make up, I liked her style and the fact that she responded so efficiently to emails - which is the easy way to contact when you are busy working!  
Mrs Lizzy Mullings (Cornelius)

After meeting Jackie at a fair and taking away her leaflet prior to even researching other wedding hair & make up artists, she made me feel at ease. When it came to booking an artist, Jackie was quick to answer my enquiry (unlike others i'd contacted) and was very easy to get on with and approachable. Her prices were very competitive and website helped me understand the process involved with the trial. I now also use Jackie for other beauty services and will continue to do so even though the wedding has now taken place. Would definitely recommend her to any who ask.  
Mrs Rebecca Reeves (Thomas)

Jackie was engaging and easy to talk to. Her photos showed her work well and related to the look I was thinking of, her website was clear and inviting and her pricing structure was clear and reasonable.  
Miss Melissa Leung

I spoke to Jackie, liked what, I saw on the website, I also tried a few bits with Jackie in the 6 months before the wedding and was very happy.

All round good value for money and brilliant service!!

Why airbrushing?

When you spray using an airbrush it atomises the product making the particles of make-up tiny. This is why airbrush make-up is used in HD TV and film. The particles in the make-up become much smaller than when it is conventionally applied and therefore less visible. HD TV picks up absolutely every imperfection! There are also hygiene benefits to spraying. When we use a conventional brush or our fingers there is potential to spread bacteria and germs across the face. By spraying Airbase make-up onto the face we can avoid this.


What about its staying power?

The silicone in the make-up makes Airbase incredibly long lasting and waterproof (and tear proof!). As silicone is heat resistant you don't get shine through as you can with water or oil based make-ups, and stands up to the intense heat of studio lighting and in bright sunshine... Airbase really does last all day.

You can build upon each layer to create the perfect  coverage .  Silicone foundation really does stand the test of time! It is this that helps give Airbase Make-Up its unrivalled durability. That means that your Airbase Make-Up application lasts all-day making Airbase perfect for bridal beauty - providing unrivalled durability


Luxurious feel and lightweight on the skin

It allows skin to breathe  Airbase Foundation does not clog pores and allows skin to breathe.  Last but not least, Airbase Silicone Foundation feels luxurious on the skin and is incredibly lightweight.

CND (Creative Nail Design) first created Shellac back in May 2010 and revolutionised the nail industry.  Since then, it has become one of the most popular nail treatments..

Shellac is a hybrid,  (meaning half nail polish and half gel)  The product is applied like a polish to the natural nail  (or over extensions)  and is cured via a UV  light. Because the product is cured, there is zero drying time.

When applied and removed correctly Shellac should not cause any damage to your nails - here are some for looking after your Shellac ...

You've probably been planning your big day for at least a year, you've booked the venue, brought the dress etc - but have you thought about the wedding morning itself?

Your wedding day starts as soon as you wake up, so the main thing is for you to have a lovely and special morning, think about;
  • Where you want to spend it - Would you prefer to be at home, your parents house, hotel or the wedding venue? 
  • Who you want to spend it - your mum, dad, bridesmaids, pets, partner? A wedding morning can be quiet emotional so make sure you have people who will be there for you.
  • Logistically will your love ones be staying with you the evening before?  If so - remember to factor in some time during the evening before to socialise or have a pre-wedding pamper party so you all have your nails done ready for the big day.   If not - bear in mind where your wedding party lives or if they have children which may effect what time they can join you on the wedding morning. 
  • How far from the wedding venue are you staying? Research any local events taking place on your wedding date, which may effect traffic on the morning of your wedding. 
  • If you are having a photographer, Will they be able to take photos of both your and your partners wedding preparations easily? Will they be able to be present and capture the look on your parents or friends faces when they see you in your dress, before they have to leave to get to the venue? 
  • Is there parking for your wedding car, wedding party, forest, photographer and hair / makeup artist?
