Natural beauty

Its a rare thing to find a make up artist so dedicated to using the most natural cosmetics she can find for her eco chic wedding clients, but Laurie Saunders of Orglamic is doing just that. After years of working with big brand beauty companies, but already leading a fairly ethical lifestyle, she found her skin crying out for change on the run up to her own green wedding. The final leap came in a desperate attempt to improve her skin health in time for that all important day.

Now Laurie only uses organic products in her personal skincare regime which, she says "hasn’t just been good for my conscience, it’s worked wonders on my skin", but also in her work. Laurie is available to work nationwide because, as she rightly points out, there are few make up artists dedicated to using the most natural cosmetics for bridal work. But to compensate for the mileage involved she will offset all her carbon emissions by contributing to a tree planting scheme.

Laurie also offers other services like make up instruction for earth friendly brides wanting the confidence to apply their own makeup beautifully on the big day, a personal shopping service taking the hassle out of finding honest green products to suit the individual and a fabulous bespoke service producing 100% organic products tailored just for you.
