Special occasion make-up

We often have that one event that we want to look extra special for; it could be a big birthday, a special event, your prom or perhaps you just want to feel pampered.

Special occasion Make-up is the ideal service for you. Based at Roberta’s studio in Ipswich or the location of your choice we will discuss your desired look,  the type of event and create a beautiful look that will not only make you feel extra special but yourself at your most beautiful.

Make-up lessons

With the ever-growing beauty industry, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with the sheer volume of products on the market and we are all guilty of buying something which looks fabulous in the packaging, to only get it home and not know how to use it.

For some people, we get used to creating an everyday look but feel lost when it calls for something special.

This is why Roberta offers the service of make-up lessons. From feedback from clients, she has found that they often have a vast array of products they don’t use or the complete opposite.

Within your make-up lesson, Roberta will guide you through the basics of skin preparation, choosing the right foundation for your skin type, and complexion to creating two different looks, day and night. Or perhaps you would love to re-create smoky eyes or perfect winged eyeliner or contouring; whatever your goal Roberta will tailor the lesson to your requirements.

Each lesson is designed to enhance or develop your current make-up skills whilst learning new techniques, tips and tricks of the trade.

Roberta will work through the process, incorporating products you already own whilst recommending tools and make-up that you will feel confident using.

These classes can be offered on an individual basis or to small groups.

Bridal make-up

Bridal styles and make-up trends are always evolving and change greatly from bride to bride. As your make-up artist for your wedding day, we will work closely together, directed by your requirements to achieve the best possible look for your special day.

Bridal trials are a fantastic opportunity to create a chosen wedding look and are highly recommended. Trials normally take place three to six months before the wedding and last two hours, or until you are completely happy with the final look.  At your trial, Roberta will consider things like face shape, features, complexion, your wedding theme and hairstyles to create a beautiful wedding day look.

The trial will be carried out at Roberta’s studio based in Ipswich, Suffolk, and can include other bridal party members if you wish. On the wedding day, Roberta will arrive at your chosen location and will then re-create the look chosen at your trial. This a wonderful opportunity to be feel pampered, relaxed and to enjoy a few moments of calm.

As part of your bridal package, you will also receive a complimentary lipstick, chosen at your trial so you are able to touch up your lipstick as and when needed.

As a professional make-up artist, Roberta only uses the highest quality make-up brands and products, for example, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, Mac, Estee Lauder, NARS, llamasqua and dermalogica to name a few.
