About Me

About Me

My name is Kim Wachnianin and I am an award winnining makeup artist based in Horsham, West Sussex. As a bridal and special occasion makeup artist, I provide a relaxed, professional, and friendly service. 

I have always been interested in how makeup can transform a face and watched makeup tutorials online, my favourites being Lisa Eldridge, Pixiwoo and Tanya Burr.  This, as well as my interest in Colour Theory, inspired me to become a makeup artist. 

My initial training was with the ‘Alicia Sandeman Academy’ in 2016. ¬†This was an excellent course to grasp the fundamentals of makeup. ¬†Subjects covered were basic makeup techniques, bridal makeup and Asian makeup.¬†

After this course I wanted to develop my makeup skills further.  I searched for a Makeup Artist (MUA) with whom to train and found Kristina who was clearly very successful in the beauty industry. 

I attended the ‚ÄėKristina Gasperas Makeup Academy’ in Richmond where I trained in ‘red carpet looks’ and specifically, bridal makeup. Working one-to-one with Kristina was fantastic and I developed an understanding in advanced techniques of makeup application. ¬† I was also trained to take high quality photographs using correct lighting techniques.¬†¬†

This has been a beneficial service for my clients as I am able to provide them with beautiful photographs of their makeup experience, whether it’s of their wedding day or a special occasion.¬†

I use products from leading cosmetic and professional brands such as DIOR, MAC, CHANEL, NARS and BOBBI BROWN.
