Useful links - makeovers and other services

Photoshoots are very special events, giving you an opportunity to explore different facets of who you are. Therefore, it's important that you feel pampered and beautiful. For those of you who are not comfortable doing your own make-up I highly recommend you consider using the services of a professional or semi-professional make-up artist. This page features makeover and other services that have either impressed me or have been recommended by one or more of my photoshoot customers. Any payments will be between you and the makeover artist, and do not form part of the photoshoot service itself.

If you have had a positive experience with a particular make-up artist and would like to see them added to this page, please let me know. Likewise, if you offer a make-up / makeover service and would like to be featured please tell me about it.  I'd be especially interested to hear about your experiences of make-up artists in the Sussex, Hampshire and Dorset areas.

London-based make-up service

I've been amazed at the attention to detail and customer care provided by James Adisai. He truly deserves the word 'artist' linked to the work 'make-up'. If you want to look and feel like a million dollar movie star without spending a million dollars, please check him out.
