About Keena MUA

I’m Keena, I have my NVQ level 2 in beauty and have gained many years experience since starting out in 2002.  I am an experienced freelance Make-up Artist having worked as account manager for Dior and YSL. I have been lucky that I have trained with their top make-up artists in London which was a fantastic experience.

In 2010 I had the privilege of being the available makeup artist at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Bangor working alongside a number of high profile artists. In September, 2015 I completed further training with Sam and Nic Chapman,aka Pixiwoo over in Norwich.  In more recent years, I have also worked alongside BBC and S4C on “Born Small the Wedding” & “Briodas Fawr”.

I am passionate about makeup and love making women look and feel fabulous. I am a MAC Pro member and use only the best industry products, I am also fully insured.

I specialise in Bridal and special occasion makeup and recently have self taught myself halloween and SFX makeup techniques. For anymore information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks, Keena

 

Testimonials


 

Keena did the makeup for my wedding and did such a good job! Couldn’t have asked for better. Loved, loved, loved the makeup and she is very good at guiding you if you don’t really wear makeup and don’t know what will suit you. Keena couldn’t have done more and after she finished even helped me find my lipstick which I’d lost and carry my dress while getting in the car so it didn’t get dirty! So glad I booked with her and would recommend to anyone. Even my own young son didn’t recognise me she had done such a good job.

Claire Raine Bancroft

An incredibly talented makeup artist who helped to make my sisters wedding day so perfect! Extremely friendly and makes you feel relaxed and at ease on what can normally be a very stressful day. I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you so, so much once again for everything Keen! You’re the ultimate professional.

Yesterday, at the @quayhotelandspa wedding fair, I had the pleasure of chatting to quite a few older brides and mother’s of the bride. There seems to be the same concerns amongst most ladies over the age of 50, who, in makeup terms, are classed as a more mature lady. This is the age bracket I love most. I have found I can teach them so much and they learn new techniques because their makeup routine hasn’t changed for 30+ years. 
What I heard from most yesterday was how worried they were about trusting someone to apply their makeup. They didn’t want to be ‘caked’ or have their fine lines emphasised. 
I explained how I adapt my makeup technique to every person as we are all different and having been in the industry for 18 years, I know how to create the most beautiful look no matter a woman’s age. 
I see a lot of new makeup artists don’t do this and they are transferring their looks for an 18 year old to a 50 something year old and it doesn’t work. 
This is something very important I think brides need to consider when looking for their makeup artist. Look at photos and read reviews. 
You’ll thank me in the long run. :
