Hi! I’m Lee O’Driscoll, aka Lee O’D and I’m an award-winning makeup artist and hair stylist for special occasions, weddings and editorial work.
I love making people feel special and I believe that when you look good, you feel good! When you feel good you can take on the world!
Obsessed with all things beauty from an early age, I went on to train in makeup at AOFM in London, makeup and hair at DFMA in Brighton and in airbrush makeup with Airbase in London. I still I’m also a beauty therapist and love being able to offer you the complete beauty package, from head to toe.
My and my husband Dan live in Hampshire, by the sea. We got married in September 2016 and it was strange being both bride and makeup artist. I drew the line at attempting to do my own hair though – thank you to Melissa Hannon (who often works with me) for that!
A huge career highlight was winning Best Wedding Makeup Artist in the 2019 Hampshire Wedding Supplier Awards, and being a finalist in the Best Wedding Hair category. To be officially recognised for doing something you love is a dream come true!
You can also see lots of my work in some of the top wedding blogs such as Rock My Wedding and Love My Dress.
A Hampshire-based makeup artist and hair stylist, I cover Southampton, Salisbury, the New Forest, Winchester, Basingstoke, Petersfield, Farnham, Fareham, Portsmouth and Chichester. I also regularly provide hair and makeup at weddings across the south in Dorset, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey and West Sussex, and can travel further afield upon request.
I’m a volunteer for Look Good Feel Better an amazing charity dedicated to improving the self-esteem, confidence and wellbeing of people undergoing treatment for any sort of cancer.
They offer free group and self-help skincare and make-up workshops that create a sense of support, confidence, and wellbeing.
