Laura offers a wide range of make up services. From Bridal make up to personal lessons, Laura provide exceptional quality make up to the highest standard. See below for details on the various offerings available at Laura Dawson Make Up.


Trials are held at the Laura Dawson Make up studio, which is equipped with professional lighting. There are examples of Laura's work displayed on the walls and in her professional wedding album which may give you inspiration. Feel free to bring along photographs, swatches and Pinterest ideas. We will discuss your overall look/theme for your wedding, dress and colour scheme work to create your perfect wedding day make up.

Wedding Day

Laura will come to your chosen venue to get you all camera-ready for the big day. She can accommodate large numbers in a very professional and stress free manner, allowing you all to relax and enjoy your morning. Her high quality kit is stacked with everything required to make sure you have amazing photographs to last you a life time.

The beauty of having professional make up applied is that you don't have to spend the day/night nipping to the loo and re-touching your make up. You can get on with having a great time. The make up will last until you go to bed, some even report it lasting for a second day.

Two-hour lessons are held in Laura's personal studio which is equipped with products to suit every skin type, even the most sensitive, and professional lighting. Lessons are completely tailored to suit your needs, be it the absolute basics in make up techniques or more advanced artistry, where you might want to perfect a glamorous evening look, complete with contouring and lashes.

Cosmetic camouflage is an area of make up artistry that I particularly love and find very rewarding. Having the skill to camouflage helps to alleviate the psychological, physical and social effects that an altered image can have on someone’s life.

I offer professional, private consultations at my home make up studio where we will look at all the camouflage products available for you on prescription and online. I will teach you how to apply and remove them, quickly and effectively at home to make your day to day life easier. I appreciate that these consultations can often be nerve wracking as some issues are extremely personal to you as my client. My job isn't to ask any uncomfortable questions or judge, it’s only to help

'Laura did the make at my wedding and my best friend's. Not only is her make up beautiful but Laura is professional, so calm and her chat is great! So glad for her to have been part of our day.'
