Hi, I'm Louise Yates, a professionally trained makeup artist specialising in creating beautiful makeup for weddings. I provide wedding makeup services in Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch and surrounding areas of Dorset and Hampshire and will create the perfect look for your special day that I guarantee you'll be delighted with. I have also provided makeup services for the BBC Production "Marrying Mum and Dad", Sun Newspaper, Reveal magazine, Real people magazine and Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding magazine. I also provide makeup services for fashion shows, proms, photo shoots, special occasions, hen parties, children's makeup pamper parties, face painting or any special occasion you may have.
I trained at the Carlton Institute in Cardiff and at DFMA in Bournemouth.
I found Louise through an online search ahead of my June 2014 wedding. Louise promptly responded to my initial enquiry and a Bridal Makeup Trial was arranged shortly thereafter. Time was spent to establish my requirements and I was impressed with Louise's makeup knowledge, skill, and passion. Louise ensured that I was happy with my look so that on the day, the application would be straightforward. Louise has a real talent - in no time at all, I looked like a true bride. I received numerous comments on the day as to how beautiful and natural my makeup was. This made me feel confident and radiant for the entire day.
Not only did I find Louise to be professional and knowledgeable, but I also respect that she uses a quality brand such as Jane Iredale - which does not test on animals. I am very happy that I chose Louise to be part of my special day; she was friendly, down to earth and helped me start one of the biggest days of my life in style! Thank you Louise!

I initially contacted Louise for bride and bridesmaid makeup for my wedding. I live in London, however the wedding was taking place in Dorset. She was very friendly to chat to and very accommodating. She met me at my Aunts house in Bournemouth for the bridal makeup trial, where she not only accommodated myself but my 6 month old sons needs too. (thank heavens he loved the jumperoo that day). She had lots of patience and took her time with the trial and I felt listened to.
On the wedding day she did an excellent job of both mine and my 3 bridesmaids makeup. She arrived on time, stayed really calm and was finished well within time parameters. She has a great eye for colour and I honestly felt like I had had a head transplant after. Again on the day she accommodated all of my needs and again my sons, who as any mother will know are plentisome at 6 months of age. Her prices were reasonable too. I would recommend her without a doubt. Thank you Louise, I felt a million dollars.
