Professional Makeup Services
Have our expert makeup artists create a perfect makeup look for your special occasion.
Specialising in the full range of makeup looks from natural no-makeup-makeup through to full red carpet makeup, you can trust us to design and create a makeup that suits your taste, outfit and above all enhances your natural, individual beauty.
Book your appointment with us at our serene Chelsea boutique and be assured that you are putting your best face forward, whatever the occasion. We can help you prepare for important work meetings and TV appearances, look your best at professional branding photoshoots and weddings, and turn heads at parties and society events. However you want to present yourself, our Senior Makeup artists will tailor your look accordingly.
Leave after your service feeling like the best version of you, with flattering, flawless makeup and the confidence that your makeup will stay in place for whatever the rest of your day has in store.
Why book a makeup application?
Even if you feel confident in your makeup skills, you deserve the professional touch for occasions when you want to feel your best, and which you’ll remember for a long time to come.
The right makeup can transform how you look and feel, giving you a confidence boost, whilst also taking the pressure off and allowing you to focus on preparing yourself mentally for your event.
A professional makeup service is relaxing on your own, and a fun, glamorous and pampering experience to share with someone in celebration.
What happens during a makeup service?
Our professional makeup application services are all on a 1-1 basis with a Senior Artist but vary in duration from 40-75 minutes long, depending on the session you choose which in turn reflects the complexity of the look you have in mind and the importance of the occasion.
You don’t need to bring anything with you but if you have a specific look in mind, it can be helpful to share an inspirational image with your artist at the start of the session.
Whichever session you choose, your look is applied gradually and discussed at each stage, making sure you feel comfortable with the choices made.
We will use our own award-winning, British-made products - available in shades for every skin tone and personal taste - as well as our hand-made luxury makeup brushes.
What makeup services are available?
The Event Makeup Service is the ideal session if you are looking to create a flawless full makeup look and is particularly popular for formal photographs and evening events. Includes optional individual eyelash application.
The Evening Eyes Service is for anyone who wants to focus on creating a glamorous or stronger eye make-up look. Includes optional individual eyelash application.
The Light Makeup Service provides a lighter, more natural professional makeup look for casual or daytime occasions.
The Wedding Day Makeup Service is designed for London-based brides and gives us a little extra time to create the perfect bridal makeup look and includes a gift of a lip colour of choice to make top ups during the special day.
Where do makeup services take place?
Our makeup services take place at our Chelsea beauty boutique at 192 Pavilion Road SW3. Worlds away from a bustling beauty counter, enjoy complimentary refreshments during your session in our relaxed and peaceful environment.
We are wheelchair, buggy and child friendly.
What feedback do we get?
“My daughter and I went to have our makeup done for her 21st party yesterday and we couldn’t have been more thrilled. My daughter looked fabulous and glamorous but also fresh faced and not overdone. I had gone in looking not my best and came out feeling a million dollars. Our makeup lasted beautifully all the long night - this could become a dangerous habit! You must go to A La Carte!” LT
“I’m so happy I found this store! I first went for an evening eye makeup and the artist was very polite and listened to the look I wanted, and she perfectly created it. I returned for a light makeup look for skin coverage and again, a phenomenal job. It has to be the best foundation & concealer I ever had on. Very friendly staff and a beautifully styled store.” JC
“Had such a great experience! My light makeup appointment left me with gorgeous glowing skin that photographed beautifully. I am going back for some bespoke makeup. Really lovely staff and great products.” RL
