NATALIE R VELLA
I am an experienced Hair & Makeup Artist, specialising in Bridal, Beauty & Editorial.
I have been tutored at AOFM (Academy of Freelance Makeup), one of the industries' most recognised fashion and bridal makeup academies in London and New York, and The London Hair Academy for Professional Hair Styling.
I would say that the type of beauty I love the most is the type that looks effortless, raw & unrefined. So if it's a dramatic look there's always still something slightly natural and 'rough around the edges' about it. I don't like perfect, I think it's fake and unrealistic. Who said natural has to be boring? Natural can still mean bold and striking. For me it's all about balance. I love my clients leaving looking like THEY have done their own makeup really well rather than it looking painfully obvious that they've gone to someone to do it for them.
In 2012, I relocated to London to begin my career where I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people including celebrities, London Fashion Week, NET-A-PORTER Magazine #TheBeautyFix series personal feature & Press Launches/ Events for Estée Lauder, ELLE, Harpers Bazaar, Sticks & Stones Agency to name a few.
I am also a LVL Lash Technician, the natural lash enhancement treatment that lasts 6-8 weeks, no maintenance and 100% your own lashes, no extensions to create Length, Volume & Lift to the lashes.
I have now relocated once more to the sunny isles of Malta where I am continuing to do what I love having already worked with many amazing local companies including VASCAS Jewellers & Home, Piccinino Lingerie, Dacoby Chauffeur Services & Dean Gera Salons. If you wish to work with me from abroad I travel upon request.
My most popular services are bridal, special occasion and editorial / campaign however if you have any questions or queries about bookings please do not hesitate to contact me using the contact form or drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
