Victoria Holdstock Makeup Artist

I’m Victoria, a North-East based make-up artist (although I am willing to travel far and abroad) and I’ve been in the industry now for 10 years. I come from an art and design background, then one day I changed my canvas and fell in love with the creativity and confidence makeup can bring. From there I trained and worked with one of the industry’s leading cosmetic companies, achieving the highest certifications, as well as gathering a wealth of experience working on a vast array of clients. I specialise in a few areas such as editorial, fashion and beauty, but bridal is my one true joy; it’s such a wonderful honour to be a part of your big day.

Makeup that is flawless, timeless, effortless and perfectly balanced – think red carpet, but down the aisle – that is the type of makeup look I love to create. Although I have a passion for a certain style, I am totally open to and have the ability to create anything that makes you feel incredible. I work with each of my brides individually, there is no one look fits all, you will get a tailored makeup look that we have created together. That make up will then last from morning to night, staying beautiful throughout.

Please feel free to get in touch, even if it’s just to ask a few questions!

I spent a lot of time researching make up artists for my wedding day as I knew I wanted to feel made up, glamorous and my best but I didn’t want a heavy face of make up where I hardly recognised myself.
I loved Victoria’s work, her fresh faced, pretty, enhancement of your own features totally fitted what I was looking for. When I met Victoria for my trial she was so lovely and made me feel so comfortable, asking what kind of look I wanted, giving me ideas and checking regularly if I was happy with the way it was going or if there was anything I wanted to change .I have to say I was blown away by the amazing make up for myself and my bridesmaids on the day, it was absolutely stunning. We had so many compliments and I’ve honestly never felt so beautiful. Also, Victoria was so lovely and chilled all day which really helps when there’s so much madness going on. Thank you Victoria, you really are amazing.

Victoria is fantastically wonderful. She has previously done my make-up for a special occasion and most recently she did my make-up for my wedding day. She was patient and understanding during my trial. This prep along with her reliable communications meant that she was fun and relaxed yet professional on my big day. I looked and felt flawless in all photos. My face looked fresh even after sweating on the dance floor later that evening. My mum loved her make-up so much that she slept with her full face on!

Victoria did my bridal and bridal party wedding make up on the 2nd June 2019 and I have to say I was absolutely over the moon with everything! Victoria is so down to earth, approachable, friendly, professional and very patient. With the experience she has, Victoria was able to advise on timings for the morning and ensured that every single one of us were ready in time with zero stress. We all had slightly different ideas on how we wanted to look and Victoria managed to listen and understand exactly what we were all after. Thank you so much for helping make me and the gang look as gorgeous as possible on the big day. Another huge thank you for doing all of this without making us feel like we were plastered thick in makeup. The makeup lasted so well and I don't think any of us had to do any touch ups! Cannot recommend enough!!! Kelly Hayre
