A beautiful business spotlight on Dotty today with the talented Frances Moore MUA.
Situated in Southampton, Frances offers an extensive range of make up services, and could be the perfect option for your wedding day. I caught up with Frances to find out a little bit more…
When did you start the business, and what was your inspiration for doing so?
I started my business a couple of years ago – but I’ve actually been involved in the makeup industry for around 10 years now ‘honing’ my skills. I started off like many wedding suppliers, doing a few friends’ bridal makeup here & there. Then one day I said to myself ‘Wouldn’t it be amazing if I did this for a living?’ so I did!
How would you describe the ethos behind the business?
I pride myself on treating everyone who comes to me as an individual, with respect & courtesy. I like to remember little details about my brides & to find out about all their wedding plans – which I simply love to hear about!
Who works “behind the scenes” at Frances Moore MUA?
Behind the scenes it is just me – that way you will always speak to the same person & I will know all the details about your makeup, wedding venue and the times you need me!
Can you tell me about any business highlights that you’ve had?
I once managed to calm a hysterical bridesmaid (who was crying in a corner) while doing her makeup on my knees with 15 minutes to go before the ceremony – when I had finished she turned to me & said I made her look how she always wanted to be.
I’m planning a vintage wedding – can you help me achieve a vintage bridal look?
Absolutely! I often take my bridal inspirations from the 40’s & 50’s era – as I find it has such a timeless quality.
I’m interested in booking you for my wedding – can we organise a make up trial? What areas of the UK do you cover?
Sure! I cover all areas of Hampshire, the South Coast & the Surrey border – but I specialise in weddings in the New Forest.
Can I find you at any upcoming wedding fairs or events?
Yes, you most certainly can! I am going to be at:
The Hilton Hotel Chilworth, Southampton on Sunday 14th September 2014 – 11.00 – 15:30
Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel, Southampton on Sunday 12th October 2014 – 11.00 – 15:00
The Master Builders Hotel at Bucklers Hard, New Forest on Sunday 16th November 2014 – 12.00 – 17:00
