SHROPSHIRE BRIDAL, PHOTOGRAPHIC & SPECIAL OCCASION MAKEUP ARTIST
Branch Out Makeup is the sister brand to Twig's Branch Photography, run by Mrs Twig (aka Suzi Wilkinson) offering a range of professional artistry services including bridal, editorial, photographic and special occasion makeup. One-to-one lessons also available. Mrs Twig trained at the Central School of Makeup in Birmingham, gaining an internationally accredited qualification as a certified IMA (International Makeup Artist Association) Makeup Artist (ooo er, sounds posh doesn't it!)
We offer a full makeup artistry service covering a range of styles from blushing bridal to vintage vamp, elegant evening to demure daywear. Whatever your style, we've got you covered.
And, talking of cover (up) you'd probably like to know what brands we use. Rest assured we only use a range of professional products including; Urban Decay, Morphe, Huda Beauty, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, BellaPierre, Smashbox, Clinique, Kiko, Bourjois, Estée Lauder and more. We don't favour any one brand in particular, all of our products are hand-picked based on their quality - if it's in our kit it's because it works.
We also hold full public liability insurance so you can rest assured your face is safe in our hands.
Prices start from just £25 (including re-usable lashes for all individual makeup application appointments) - fancy a discount? Round up your mates and receive 10% off bookings for 4 or more people.
Whether your preference is timeless classic or trend-led fashion, we can create the look you desire for your wedding day. Mrs Twig works with each and every bride to create an individual makeup application that captures both your personality and style, whilst also incorporating the individual needs of your skin type and facial features.
Whilst it is not compulsory, we advise all brides to book a trial at least 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day. All trial appointments include a comprehensive consultation process, during which we will discuss the various elements of your wedding such as colour themes and styles, as well as undertake an analysis of your skin and provide any personalised recommendations to help you get the very best from your bridal makeup.
From there we will create a look based on what we have discussed during the consultation. We may make a few amendments along the way, such as changing a lip colour or adding to an eye look. However, please note that only one full look may be trialled per appointment - a second trial may be necessary.
As part of the appointment I will advise you of the products I am using and record everything on your individual trial sheet. Prior to your wedding we will have discussed a schedule of events to ensure smooth running of your day. I will arrive at the designated time and work with your photographer/videographer to ensure you are ready for any required shots/footage. I generally allow between 1hr to 1.5hrs per person, depending on the complexity of the look we have agreed. I like to take my time and not rush through what will be one of the most important days of your life! Once everyone''s makeup is complete, I will do final checks on the entire party and top up any lipstick or powder as required. All clients receive a complimentary top-up kit to refresh makeup throughout the day containing loose powder and a sample of your chosen lipstick.
Our special occasion service provides a professional makeup application for a variety of events, from birthdays and anniversaries, to wedding guest and prom makeup.
Priced at just £25 per person, which includes a pair of reusable lashes and free top-up kit. Appointments generally take place at your home* (or an agreed location) and last between 1hr-1.5hrs per person, depending on your chosen look.
High fashion (spotlight/halo eyes and cut creases as shown below, left) and festival looks also available for an additional fee of £10 per person (£35 total) due to the time/additional materials required to create these looks. Please allow an addition 30-45 minutes per appointment due to the intricate nature of these looks.
One-to-one lessons are also available and are priced at £50 per person for a 2-hour session, which includes a full face and product chart so you can recreate your chosen look at home, plus a complimentary beauty goody bag and a pair of reusable lashes.
