About Me

Hello I’m Emily the owner and makeup artist behind Emily Haydon makeup.

As a lost soul when I left school I trained as a beauty therapist to which I had a very successful career, but I always felt my passion was more creative. I had studied fine art at high school and missed having a paintbrush in my hand. In March 2016 I did a makeup course at the Cassie Lomas academy while still working in a 5* Elemis spa.

My in-depth knowledge of skincare and flare for colour gave me a wonderful head start. I jumped straight into working for a team of makeup artists specialising in weddings, I finally found my place, and style.



I wanted to show peoples natural beauty, enhance their features, make them feel the most beautiful they have ever felt. I adored makeup as it can change the way someone looks and feels in an instant. However, I wanted things to be more personal no “middle man” if you will. It has become just as important to me to be part of the booking process, as it is to put on that final touch of lipstick, before you go down the aisle.

I wanted to get to know my customer from the first point of contact, so they felt at ease with me doing their makeup. For me the person you book should be the person who does your makeup on the day, and from there my brand was born.
