Colette Johnson, aka ‘CJ’, is the Owner and Principle Makeup Artist / Bridal Hair Designer at CJ Beauty & Co and a multi award-winning makeup artist and hair designer with experience spanning almost 20 years across the industry.
“CJ Beauty & Co was born in 2009 when I decided it was time to fuse my experience in makeup, my love of weddings and my skills in business development – and I haven’t looked back!” “I’m a self-confessed makeup addict – I love makeup and I love making people feel special! – What a better combination to work in such an exciting industry! Nine years on CJ Beauty & Co is now an employer and my business is my pride and joy. My business has grown almost entirely through recommendation which is just wonderful and still brings the biggest smile to my face as brides continue to recommend us time and time over.”
It’s also such an honour to be recommended by so many top wedding suppliers and wedding venues who share our passion and dedication to exceptional service.
You can choose ‘CJ’s Directors Package’, ‘The Diamond Package’, ‘The Sparkle Package’ or ‘The Glow Package’ to look after you and your bridal party on your big day. If your timings require we can mix and match these packages (minimum booking applies)
CJ is the driving force behind CJ Beauty & Co. Colette has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry and has won several awards over the years. Some of Colette’s earlier experience was in TV & Media but she soon realised her real passion was in Weddings and being a part of such a special day!
CJ is insanely passionate about her business and she is totally dedicated to delivering the very best experience to each and every customer. CJ is also a Reiki master and has a calming influence on those around her – which is handy when looking after a flustered bride!
‘CJ’s Directors Package’ is the ultimate luxury makeup and hair design experience for your big day. CJ’s meticulous nature will guide you as you plan your ideas together on the run up to the trial itself and will guide you through the planning process on the run up to your big day. Her communication skills really are second to none! Should you need an additional team member to support your timings that is no problem (and no additional surcharge applies)
When you book CJ’s Directors Package for your Bridal hair and makeup you will also benefit from our Hair Accessory Design Service, our ‘To Have & To Hold Service’, our After Ceremony Service and our Evening Turnaround Service.
Alternatively, you can choose our team to look after you and your bridal party!
Our packages are designed around particular looks our customers ask us for (for example natural and boho, or maybe hollywood glam) – and each package also offers different levels of service you may want to indulge in. All of our artists have their own ‘go to style’ and it is these styles that we base our packages around, and some of our artists are available throughout the day for our other services and for sequel weddings.
Most Brides ask us for a ‘natural look’ for their makeup, but we recognise that what is ‘natural’ to one Bride may not be ‘natural’ to another – and so we work with every Bride to understand their own version of ‘natural’ so that we can recommend the best package. Once you are booked with us this forms part of our planning process with you too and we will support you on your journey as the makeup look you want may evolve! It is not uncommon that the look you may have in mind at the point of booking may become quite different to the look that you want come your trial! We are able to offer flexibility in terms of moving to another package (subject to availability). We also have specialists in Asian, Indian and Jewish weddings.
Between them, the team offer ‘The Diamond Package’, ‘The Sparkle Package’ and ‘The Glow Package’ for Brides and their Bridal parties throughout the UK. More details can be found here.
Our Makeup artists / Hair Designers available under ‘The Diamond Package’ have substantial experience – most have more than 15 years experience in the industry! If you book ‘The Diamond Package’ you can also choose our After Ceremony Service and our Evening Turnaround Service as part of your experience with us. ‘The Diamond Package’ is available throughout the UK and overseas for destination weddings.
Our Makeup artists / Hair Designers available under ‘The Sparkle Package’ are also professionally qualified with more than 5 years experience in the industry and are available UK wide. ‘The Sparkle Package’ is for Brides who are looking for a natural makeup – to enhance their natural features – We also offer Airbrush makeup as part of this package which is a great option for some Brides (we will discuss the options with you as we plan your trial).
‘Our Glow Package’ is for very natural makeup for Brides and bridal parties who may be quite scared at the thought of a full face of makeup.
For larger wedding parties we can mix and match these packages to suit should you need additional team members to support your timings (We do not add a surcharge for this)
