Hi, I'm Justine Olver a professionally trained makeup artist and mummy to twins based in Crediton, Devon.
Having always been artistic I fell in love with makeup when I was 16 and experienced having my own hair and makeup done for a photo shoot in London. Immediately I knew that this was the profession for me and started researching how I could get into the industry.
I completed a BTEC National Diploma in Applied Science (Beauty Therapy) before going on to do a HND in Media and Special Effects Makeup. I also completed a BSc in Beauty Therapy with Management. Having graduated in ’04 I started Finishing Touch in ’06 to offer freelance wedding makeup to brides in the southwest, photographic makeup to studios/corporate clients and mobile beauty treatments to clients in and around Crediton.
Having became a mum to twin girls in October 2015 I now juggle my time between weddings, photoshoots, looking after my girls (and Cockapoo, who still thinks hes a puppy!) and sewing Childrens Clothes for my other business JECO.
I rebranded in 2018 to work under my own name as I wanted brides to know that when you book me you get me and all my experience.
I absolutely love my job, I get to help brides look and feel their most beautiful on one of the most important days of their lives getting them picture perfect and ready to take their grooms breath away.
Although I specialize in natural makeup I can offer all styles from natural through to dramatic evening makeovers, all tailored to the individuals needs.
