About Kaz Fernando Makeup

I’m a multi award-winning makeup artist with more than 15 years experience of working in many areas of the industry. This includes a stint at Sky TV, on advertising commercials (both film and print), a wide range of magazines and freelancing for fashion and beauty photo shoots with some of the UK’s leading photographers.

Prior to training as a makeup artist, I worked in a blue chip service industry environment (10 years working for British Airways cabin crew). This experience has served me well when working closely and quickly with people in tight deadline or high pressure situations. I’ve since worked hard to develop an excellent reputation as one of the UK’s leading wedding hair and makeup artists.

I offer a specialist wedding hair and makeup artist service for brides and bridal parties primarily throughout Wimbledon, Richmond, Surrey, London and the Home Counties. However, I am available to travel further afield for some weddings. Please have a read through the many genuine testimonials that I’ve been lucky enough to receive.

Award Winning

The quality of my client feedback and the reputation I have built helped me to be voted National Wedding Make Up Artist of the Year 2012 at The Wedding Industry Awards in London. I’m honoured to have subsequently been selected as a judge for these highly prestigious awards, a role I continue to carry out to this day.

In October 2015 I was named winner of The London Hair & Beauty Bridal Hair & Makeup Specialist of the Year Award 2015

So, if you choose me for your wedding you will be guaranteed a first class experience and the benefit of my advice and professional expertise gained from over 500 wedding assignments.

More recently, because I work with so many Asian and Indian brides, I have been nominated as a finalist for The British Asian Wedding Awards 2017. If you’d like to talk through any wedding hair and make-up ideas or styles, I’m very happy to have an informal discussion over the phone.

Together we’re bound to come up with something that suits you perfectly – I have experience of working with many, many brides of every shape, size, colour and character!

A wide range of hair and makeup services

As well as weddings, I work in a variety of other areas for both private and commercial clients


Professionally trained, over 12 years experience. I use only the finest cosmetics and brushes guaranteed to achieve a flawless, long-lasting look that will be commented on for all the right reasons.


Everything from simple, sleek and stylish to stunning up dos and big wedding hair – I do the lot. Extensions, hair-buns, tiaras and full-on curls to add volume and style to any head of hair! 


I’ve much experience – both for weddings and commercial photo-shoots – of creating convincing vintage and retro makeup and hairstyles. Everything from Restoration Royalty to Sixties Chic and pretty much anything in between. 


If you’ve ever wanted to learn what makeup is best for you and how to apply it effectively – I can teach you! One-to-one sessions lasting 3 hours during which time we’ll have a lot of fun experimenting and discovering what really make you rock!


I regularly work with talented professional photographers as lead Makeup Artist both in studio and on location. Magazine editorials, TV commercials, business portrait shoots; I’m your gal.


Anything from birthdays to  Bar Mitzvahs! But more often makeup for big event parties, award ceremonies or conferences. I come to you, sort you out and send you on your way looking the bees knees.


Pre-Wedding Consultations

A wedding consultation is usually held around two to three months before your wedding day. You can visit me or I can come to your home, whichever is more convenient. The consultation lasts approximately three hours and is VERY important as it gives us the chance to meet, decide your chosen look for the day and discuss matters in a relaxed atmosphere.


At the consultation

…we will discuss any ideas you may have, any photos you may have of your dress/accessories are also helpful to see to give me an idea of a suitable look for both hair and makeup. You may already have an idea of how you would like to look on your wedding day, but if not, don’t worry! I have full hair and make up kit, a mood board and plenty of hair accessories and ideas to inspire you.

Your wedding makeup

Most brides prefer to go for a flawless but natural look that still looks like them, just a more beautiful version! Your wedding day is probably not the beat time to try out a new dramatic look. It is important to create a look that is timeless, feminine and will not date. Once applied, your wedding day makeup should last a full 12 hours with the use of various primers. All you will need on the day for touch-ups will be a blotting powder and a lip gloss.

Your wedding hair

We can discuss any ideas you may have for your wedding day hairstyle taking into account the shape of your dress, type of hair, face shape etc. We will then create a few suitable hairstyles. This way, on that on the day, we know exactly what we are doing and it all runs smoothly!

A photo record

At your consultation, I take several informal photos (which are subsequently emailed to you) of your chosen makeup and hair styles so that you can reflect on your decisions later (sometimes after your own consultation with close friends and family!)

Other members of your bridal party

A consultation beforehand for bridesmaids and/or Mother of the Bride is not essential but can be arranged (normally at the same time as the bride’s consultation). We also need to ensure that the hair styles of your choice are manageable in the time available on the wedding day itself. This will depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the wedding party. We discuss all this (and more!) at the make up consultation. If your bridal party is three or more people for full hair and makeup, I will be accompanied by an experienced assistant (see Prices).

Please note...

I only offer bridal hair as part of the bridal makeup and hair package but DO NOT offer a bridal hair service on its own. However, I am available to do just hair and/or make up for other members of your bridal party as long as I am booked to do the bride’s hair and makeup. If you wish to discuss other bespoke hair and make up combinations or individual requirements, please just contact me for an individual quote.
