News from Makeup by Lauren

What strange and sad times we find ourselves in. Sadly the outcome of the Covid-19 situation here in Mallorca will simply mean the total absence of a tourist (and wedding) season for 2020. A huge blow to the economy of the Balearic Islands. I am confident however that I can accommodate all of my brides who reschedule for next year, and with new enquiries for 2021 now coming in there is a spark of hope. All we can do is look forwards to better times when we can dust ourselves off and hit the ground running. Who knows, perhaps we'll have even learned some things along the way...

Well, what an interesting year this has been...but I have some good news for my brides, because I am very pleased to announce that hair services are now officially part of my 2021 wedding price list! During this (very quiet!) season I have dedicated some real time to refining my skills in bridal specific hair styling. My style of work has developed to very much reflect the same romantic, natural look you will see in my makeup, so if you are searching for a bridal look that encompasses seamlessly flowing natural beauty, then look no further!
10th January 2020
Somehow we find ourselves in the new year! Enquiries for 2020 wedding dates are coming in fast now and I'm so excited to meet all my stunning brides for their trials in the coming months. 2020 is also the year that I will be starting something a little different - my own YouTube channel! I plan to make it largely beauty focused so if you want to know tips and tricks from a professional along with the makeup looks and products that I'm loving then it will be the channel for you. I'm still finalising the last few details but will leave all the info here as soon as I go live!
12th November 2019
And so ends my first full wedding season in Mallorca! I've been blown away by just how positive a start this has been. Wedding suppliers and new friends alike have made me feel so welcome and so inspired to succeed as a new business. The diary for 2020 is filling up fast, (including some dates for winter weddings in the North East of the UK, watch this space!) so I'm mega excited to get going again in the new year. Here's to next year!

I think we can safely say that things have been busy since my last update! Weddings and events galore with a few photo shoots thrown in has made for a fast paced and fun summer so far. Last week I also attended a masterclass with my teacher Kristina Gasperas - it's really important to me that I continue to perfect and update my skills so that I can be 100% sure that each and every one of my clients are getting the best that there is to offer. I always leave renewed and excited to create some beautiful looks that incorporate the most up to date and flattering techniques my industry.

So last night was a career first for me after being asked to speak at the Mallorca Wedding Suppliers Event in Palma. It's so important that vendors have an understanding of each other's roles in the run up to and on the day of a wedding. For that day we are a team with one purpose: to make this the most special of days for the couple themselves and we can only do this if we are prepared to be cooperative, self aware and understanding of each other's roles in the event. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone else at future events!

Somehow it's April already! This year is already flying by and the season hasn't even properly begun yet. The imminent arrival of wedding season has meant a lot of requests for photoshoots as vendors spruce up ready for the coming months. I'm collaborating with some absolutely fantastic suppliers throughout this month and I can't wait to show you the beautiful looks I have planned!
1st March 2019
So dates are getting booked up FAST now. Many brides in particular don't realise quite how far in advance they need to secure their favourite makeup artist. If you're getting married in 2019 (or even 2020!) make sure you get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. If I am not available on your date I will always endeavour to help by putting you in touch with another trusted artist.

I was invited to attend an event last night for wedding suppliers. I felt very privileged indeed to be included as not only was it a really fun evening but also because in attendance were some of the most experienced and prestigious in the wedding industry here in beautiful Mallorca! I met some fantastic professionals who I'm really looking forward to working with in the future.
5th February 2019
So I've been hard at work planning some upcoming shoots! I'm going to be working with some fantastically talented and also very like minded people so I'm pretty darn excited to be involved. Keep an eye out for more gorgeous makeup looks to come!
