No comments:

Hey Bridehour! I’m Sophie from ‘Makeup by Sophie Downing’
I’m a freelance professional makeup artist based in Derby but also travel around the East Midlands. I have been in the makeup industry for over 4 years and love every minute of it!

What inspired you to start your business?
My flair for makeup and passion for beauty! 
I first started off in the Fashion/Beauty Editorial route and worked my way around to discover the amazing wedding world, working with upcoming brides and hearing all their dreamy wedding plans was a job I could never dislike!

What’s your top beauty tip for brides in the run up to their big day?
Skincare Routine and Green Tea!!! 
Set yourself up with a good skincare routine 2 months prior to your wedding as this will correct and clear everything out of your skin in the first few weeks then it will gradually beautify you throughout the run up to your wedding so your skin will be flawless.
2 years after living on green tea and water really does detox you and keep your skin glowing. You can get through the taste after the first couple of days, believe me!

Any funny stories you would like to share with #BrideHour?
Funny but awkward… Knocking on the wrong door for a wedding trail with all my kit in both hands, don’t think they expected that one, although I’m sure they would be happy to have their makeup done.

What sort of things happen in your “typical” day?
I wake up early to make a healthy breakfast to get me through my jam packed day… squeeze in an hours gym routine, get comfy in Starbucks with my green tea, Macbook and Diary and begin working through my to do list, before finally making my way to do what I do best… Makeup applications. 

Top tip for couples planning their wedding?
TIMING! Don’t miss out on sending your deposits late as you can easily loose your date, this isn’t something you want to get a reply about. Everything really is a year in advanced, even makeup, I’m already starting with 2017 requests.

Good Luck with all of your wedding planning and I wish you all the best for your Big Day and a happy future.
