GET EXPERTLY STYLED TO PERFECTION – FLATTERING, TIMELESS, EFFORTLESSLY BEAUTIFUL – STYLING AS IF YOU WERE BORN THIS WAY…
I‘m Kristina and I’m a makeup artist based in the UK. I’m also on the judging panel for The Wedding Industry Awards and was the National Winner for Bridal Makeup in 2013.
I have an incredibly friendly and dedicated team of experts – the fabulous K-Team – and together we specialise in bridal and special occasion makeup and hairstyling, editorials and television, makeup/hairstyling lessons as well as professional training. We are known for our ability to create flawless red-carpet-worthy faces, elegant and flattering hairstyles and a friendly, helpful and calm service that has so far been loved by hundreds of brides and clients.
We are slightly (actually a lot!!) obsessed with the wonderful and exciting world of makeup and hair. This is what we offer and what you can expect from us…
- Highest level award-winning makeup and hairstyling services for weddings and special occasions – we love creating clean, modern and polished looks. You want to feel your most beautiful and confident on your wedding day: your makeup, hair and dress are the 3 things that will make you look like a superstar and that everyone will notice most. And the photographs will last forever… Ensure your makeup and hair are taken care of by top industry experts with endless passion to make every bride look incredible!
- Expertise in corrective and anti-aging techniques – we have the knowledge and skills to address individual needs – whether you want to look younger, modern or effortlessly put together, that’s what we do best!
- Exceptional customer service – we are dedicated and pride ourselves in providing a seamless booking experience and the friendliest most helpful service. It’s not difficult for us as we love what we do and do it from our hearts;
- Bridal makeup and hairstyling lessons – if a makeup artist is not readily available wherever you plan on getting married – learn how to do it yourself with our skilful guidance and clear step-by-step hands-on practicals;
- Your beauty captured in the most flattering way – I am also a professionally trained photographer so have experience in creating the most effective makeup that looks fantastic in photographs as well as real life. I love capturing flattering portraits, it’s my second passion;
- Gift vouchers – our services are often gifted to loved ones and make a thoughtful and luxurious gift; and
- Bridal makeup, hair and photography all in one place! – with an award-winning photographer on board, we can arrange packages for weddings, portraits, stylish boudoir shoots and any other types of photography.
For professional training please check out the Kristina Gasperas Beauty Academy website.
We’re based in southwest London and are available for weddings and events nationally and internationally. We have a beautiful studio – the Kristina Gasperas Makeup and Hair Studio – in the centre of leafy Richmond.
We travel all over the UK as well as the most popular international destination wedding locations – in particular Italy, France, Greece and the Balearic islands of Ibiza and Mallorca.
To us great makeup and hair are not necessarily about it being obvious, it’s more about the effect it gives the wearer without being distracting. It’s a harmonious union of the correct colours, tones, and styles that suit each individual personality.
The effect we as a team aim to achieve is one where you look so good, so confident that when you walk into a room everyone who looks at you tries to guess what’s different: Did she just come back from holiday? Did she just have an awesome date? Why does she look so good? Better than I ever remember seeing her!?…
Discreet corrections where needed, precise and clean makeup application, radiant and youth-boosting colour selections and the most flattering hairstyles to suit individual face shapes. All of these make the finished look flawlessly put together for sophisticated, modern elegance and style.
We can’t wait to hear from you whatever the occasion!
