About Emma Salisbury Makeup Artist

Welcome to my website, my name is Emma Salisbury and I am a fully trained professional Make-up Artist

I work freelance in and around Essex, although my work often takes me on location around the country, and occasionally abroad. I have always had a love of make-up and in my early career gained valuable experience when I worked for cosmetic counters in London.

I went on from there to fully qualify at the acclaimed AOFM (Academy of Film and Makeup) based in the West End of London. I work with a variety of high end brands including MAC, Estee Lauder, Chanel and many, many more.

Having specialised in wedding make-up my experience has taught me that less is more. On your wedding day or special occasion my aim is to make you look like a more polished version of 'yourself' natural glowing skin and make-up that enhances your natural features.

I will make you feel totally comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process discussing each step of your desired look.

What you say about me...

"Emma did my makeup trial for my wedding at the weekend and I have never felt so relaxed in someone’s company, I have to admit I was a nervous tearful wreck when I rang her initially but when she arrived I very quickly relaxed, my makeup looked stunning and then Emma went over it heavier for my night out,( hen night )so many people commented on my skin and make up, she worked on the whole face but worked on each area methodically really chuffed that I found her and am so chilled about my wedding now in 12 days ,thankyou Emma x " Rebecca - Witham

"Emma did mine and my bridesmaids makeup. She was so lovely and friendly and they've all told me how great they thought she was. She really listened in my trial and I trusted her completely. I was so happy with the beautiful makeup she did for everyone, how glowing we looked and how long it lasted. She truly was so lovely to us all and I will definitely be using Emma again when I want to be pampered. Thank you so much Emma xx " Karly Fairclough

"Would like to thank Emma on making my day that extra special by making me, my bridesmaid and mum look gorgeous. She really was so professional and even helped with the little things and even with my dress - don't know what we would have done without her. On top of it all we really did have a fun morning. I would highly recommend Emma as she is so professional yet so down to earth and makes you feel such at ease. Thank you so much Emma you really did help with my day. X " Rebecca Morrow – Romford

She was professional and friendly and made us (myself, four bridesmaids, my mother and even my flower girl!) look absolutely wonderful.

"Dear Emma. Thank you so very much for doing my make up for my wedding on Saturday. My husband said I looked gorgeous when I walked down the aisle, and he doesn't usually say things like that to me! All the other guests complimented me on the way I looked, and you made me look very healthy indeed! I know where to go when I want a make-over for special occasions. Kind regards, and best wishes. " Pamela - Silver End, Essex

"Dear Emma. Thank you very much for the trial yesterday. We were all very pleased with the way you made us look. My fiance kept looking at me and said how nice I looked, and also my daughter's fiance said she looked very nice. I now look forward to seeing you again on 21 June! Many thanks and kind regards. " Pamela - Romford, Essex

"Hi Emma. Just wanted to send you an email to thank you for doing such a wonderful job with mine and my sister's make up yesterday! Everyone said how nice it looked and it stayed looking good all day, even managing to withstand a few tears! If I ever have any friends who need a make up artist for a wedding or special event I will be sure to recommend you. Thank you once again." Hannah - Manningtree, Essex

"It was lovely to meet you yesterday in your beautiful house & you made us all feel very at ease with something we were worried about. We were all so pleased with how you made us look. My sister is very conscious of her rosacea & usually wears minimal makeup but she looked amazing & super pretty & felt pretty too. My mum has already bought black mascara she was so chuffed with what you did! My mum is very often a hard person to convince & I thought she would be very picky but you did such a great job that she said she felt a million dollars! Am really looking forward to the day now knowing I will look a prettier version of myself!" Claire - Tillingham

"I got married on 24th August 2013. Emma did my makeup and it was everything I wanted it to be and so much more! She created exactly the look that I wanted with dramatic eyes! I loved my wedding makeup & felt amazing! Emma also did mum's makeup she was over the moon! Emma was also able to offer excellent advice on makeup and make recommendations that I am still using everyday! Emma is friendly, professional and without doubt I would highly recommend her."
