Bridal / Fashion / Beauty / Editorial / Celebrity Makeup Artist


Hey, I’m Gemma Rimmington.  Minimal makeup wearing Makeup Artist and an unapologetic beauty junkie. Encourages an evening double cleanse but can’t deny sleeping in your makeup makes for an effortless smokey eye the morning after.  Won a few awards and stuff. Pretty decent with a makeup brush and had work published in Vogue Italia.  Writes honestly about beauty products which will definitely enhance your life. An advocate of real beauty beauty for real women. Unfiltered (my work and my mouth).  Freelance but also has an agent for fashion/commercial work (who does she think she is?).  Favourite achievement to date – doing a photoshoot in London with Strictly Pro Dancer, Johannes Radebe.  More red carpet than a dirty looking contour and a sharpie brow.

Stereotypical of 90% of Aries traits.  Trinny Woodall got me obsessed with wearing sequins and “dressing like a crayon”.  Musicals geek.  Adores freckles.  Weirdly intrigued by the “Worst Prison” type documentaries despite an irrational fear of being wrongly accused of something and finding myself in one.  Fitness is my friend.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Gemma, what an absolutely amazing person she is! Right from the beginning, at my bridal makeup trial, she made me feel comfortable and I could tell straight away that I wouldn’t want anybody else to do my makeup on such a special day! On the day, Gemma did different makeup styles for everyone, listening to what everybody wanted and creating looks that we were all over the moon with (even those who don’t usually feel comfortable wearing makeup). Gemma is more than a makeup artist, she is a beautiful person and I am so so glad she was with us on the morning of my wedding! Gemma, I cannot thank you enough!”

If you want to see Gemma's knowledge - just read her FAQ.

In all of my 6 years of working in the wedding industry, never have I met a more resilient and positive bride deserving of an amazing wedding day!

Since the start of 2020, brides have faced many challenges. Cancellations, postponements, numerous date changes, illness-related absences from weddings…

Yesterday, I left bride Steph not knowing if or where she was going to get married! Thanks to the ridiculous storm, her venue was unfortunately left without power as well as damage to the property meaning she wasn’t sure whether her reception would go ahead… there were a few other phonecalls on the morning meaning other challenges and her family and groomsmen managed to rally round, keep everything calm and even found a new venue for her to get married (meaning everything needed to be moved from one venue to the other).

Despite the crazy weather, the manic phone calls and the uncertainty of whether she could actually still go ahead, she smiled all morning and shrugged saying “well, what else can you do?” ❤️

I thought about her all day yesterday so I messaged her first thing this morning and she told me she was able to have a service and that her venue was thankfully relocated due to quick thinking and a top bridal party (including the men!).

“Believe it or not, it was still such a lovely day”…

Well Steph, you thoroughly deserved it! Such a pleasure and an inspirational person. That’s how you face adversity! X

Congratulations to Nina who married yesterday at Crab Manor Hotel. Nina requested a very natural look with the focus on dewy skin and muted nudes.
