WHO AM I

Hello, I’m Leigh – it’s nice to ‘meet’ you!

I am a qualified and insured Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist based in Stanley, North Durham.

The name MUBYLEIGH stands for, in case you hadn’t already figured it out, ‘Makeup by Leigh’. It was decided on during a food and wine filled trip to Paris to see my parents – I hope you like the sound of it as much as we did!

Despite popular belief (babyfaced, small person), I am 26 years of age. I’ve always been a very creative person. After studying Art, Drama, Performing Arts and Dance and dabbling in almost every craft possible, I found my passion and went on to study Hair & Makeup Artistry in later years.

I first remember showing a real interest in beauty when I got my hands on my Mum’s ‘Ultimate Makeup & Beauty Book’ by Mary Quant, which was published when I was just 3 years old! Growing up, I had a lot of admiration for the woman around me and their skills in applying makeup. Specifically for my Mum who was always trying out new tricks and products, and my Grandma who to this day can perfectly apply her lipstick without a mirror.

 

“After searching for a Make Up Artist in my area, Leigh stood out the most. She was absolutely fantastic…”

WHAT I DO

I am a strong believer that everyone deserves to have the pleasure of being made up at least once! No occasion is too big or too small for a bit of pampering – so get in touch! I look forward to meeting you

I have always loved how makeup makes me feel, the confidence it gives me and the way it can totally transform the face. So, I created MUBYLEIGH to share that feeling with as many others as possible. If I’m honest, my makeup kit became just too big for one person!

After years of experimenting with my own makeup, I decided to study a Level 3 Diploma in Makeup Artistry and really make a go of starting a career as a Makeup Artist. Before long, I began incorporating hair styling into my repertoire and found a real love for that too! Suffice it to say, I have certainly never looked back.

“I really have to thank Leigh for how amazing my hair and make up looked on my wedding day! Leigh is amazing at what she does, she listened to what I wanted and transformed my ideas into real life.”

WHY CHOOSE ME

My vision is to help each of my brides feel like the absolute best version of themselves, while still feeling like themselves! So, whether you’re used to a natural glow or a super glam glow-up, I’ll create a look that leaves you looking totally flawless and beaming with confidence.

You’ll see from my reviews that one thing my brides regularly rave about is my “calming influence”. Weddings are naturally full of emotions, and often some nerves, so I make it my aim to ensure the process is as relaxed and care-free as possible. When it comes to the morning of your wedding, it is finally your time to sit back and relax – you’re in good hands.

Once your hair and makeup is done, I’ll be sticking around to provide touch-ups until you’re ready to head out of the door. I’ve also been known to be a pretty dab hand at attaching buttonholes and buttoning up dresses (I’m pretty much an expert by now!), until you’re ready to head out of the door. I’ll be there for you every step of the way.

 

“From start to finish, Leigh was there whenever I needed to query something or ask for advice. On the morning of my wedding, Leigh was part of the bridal tribe – she has such a calming influence and is such a lovely person to be around.
