The best Makeup artist

I am so so so happy that I had the lovely Amber to do my makeup on my wedding day, she is so talented and I felt like a princess! From the moment I messaged Amber I knew it was the best choice as she was the most loveliest person and so passionate about what she does. We had so much fun at the trial and I knew I had made the best choice!

We had a lovely morning getting ready and all of the makeup on my bridal party was amazing and they all felt so lovely and all thanks to Amber!

I will always look at my photos and videos of the day with so much happiness knowing I looked my best,

Thanks so much my lovely!

Book Amber you will not regret it!

Gorgeous makeup

Amber was honestly a joy to have around on the morning of my wedding. She was so positive and kind and calmed any nerves I had the second she walked through the door.
My makeup was so beautiful!!!! It was so much better than I could ever of imagined I felt so confident all day.

I had an early ceremony so Amber arrived at 6.30am. I hadn't slept very well so was feeling a little anxious and groggy. Amber arrived like a little ray of sunshine, she was so super chirpy and positive and just what I needed in that moment.
The make up was WONDERFUL! So glowing and fresh and more beautiful than I could of imagined. I felt so confident. It honestly lasted all day and all night!! I never needed to top it up and it still looked as lovely at bed time.
Amber helped make the morning such an special and chilled experience, I could not recommend her enough!!

Bridal Glow!! 🤩

I booked Amber through Team Glam so I didn’t know who my makeup artist was until I received my booking confirmation. Which in hindsight was a bit crazy, however it really paid off!! From our first communications it was really clear that Amber was a truly down to earth and amazing person. I wanted to have my hair and makeup trial on the same day, which I would highly recommend to all future brides, and this was no trouble for Amber. I told her what date I was available and she liaised the timings with my hair stylist for me - which was just such a relief as a busy bride to be the last thing you want to be doing is firing emails backwards and forwards to arrange timings with your hair and makeup artist! As someone that doesn’t wear much makeup I was very nervous for the trial, however as soon as we met I was instantly put at ease. I had such a lovely morning with Amber chatting as if we had known each other for years as we talked about our weddings and life. The makeup she did was absolutely amazing, she had listened to my vision and I knew that I was in safe hands! On the day of my wedding Amber arrived with her amazing happy and bubbly personality that saw her instantly hit it off with all of my bridal party. Amber helped to put all of our nerves to ease, it was as if she had become part of the bridal party because we all felt so comfortable with her. We all had the most beautiful and professional makeup which is testament to the dedication and passion Amber has for her job. I cannot thank Amber enough for the stunning makeup that she provided for me and my bridal party, providing me with the makeup that I thought I could only ever have dreamed of on my wedding day - thank you for making it a reality! 💕

Exceptional ✨

There is nothing I can write that will give Amber the praise she deserves.
Amber is warm and kind, listens to your views and takes on board any tweaks with absolute grace. She makes you feel special from the moment you meet her, she is personable, passionate and caring. She made me feel calm on my wedding day and made sure I was number one. She ensured I was taken away from the chaos, made people come to me and made the photographer and videographer wait when they got pushy and rushing us.
Amber helped me get dressed, my shoes, jewellery etc you name it she was there to assist me, in more ways than I thought was even possible. I couldn’t have done it without her 🧡

More than just a makeup artist

I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Amber has been from start to finish and even beyond. I booked my wedding December 2021 for October 2022 and I just happened to stumbled upon her page on Instagram and I loved the looks she was creating. I reached out and instantly knew she was going to be my makeup artist! Amber is honestly the most caring, kind and warm hearted person I have ever spoken to/met. We met for the first time in March for my makeup trial, and I felt like I was with a friend I hadn't seen in a while, we bonded quickly over our love for Disney and that we are both Taurus. The makeup look she create on my trial was everything I wanted and more and I felt comfortable enough to say if I wanted to change something slightly or try a little bit less/more of something. Me and Amber spoke on and off in the run up to my wedding and she makes you feel so excited and like you're her only client and not just another number. The day of the wedding comes and Amber walks into the room and literally fills it with her smile and comes cuddles you straight away to help with the nerves. She done my MIL and mums makeup first and then mine and not once did she stop chatting away, having a laugh with us all and making everything feel so relaxed and calm but also so exciting. Amber helps you get into your dress as part of her service which I think is an incredible bonus because me and my mum were a little worried about it but Amber knew what she was doing and I was in my dress super quickly.
My hairdresser did leave and forgot to put my veil in and again Amber didn't even hesitate she was right there helping me put it in to make sure I didn't worry or stress about it.
I know I have gone on for a while but I really cannot thank Amber enough for everything she done for me and I would recommend her 10000%!

The best makeup artist ever.

Where do I even begin?!? Amber was incredible. From the few in person conversations I had with her, I knew she was a loving, caring, beautiful human being. Everyone absolutely adored Amber on my wedding morning! She got on with every single one of them because she's so personable. Her kind, bubbly personality made me feel so much more relaxed on the morning and I couldn't be more thankful to her for that. Amber was also so efficient in her job, and my bridesmaids even commented how quickly she did a full glam! Our guests also overheard our bridesmaids in the bathroom raving about how their makeup is still on hours later! I am not a huge makeup person, so having a natural glam that didn't make me look too 'done up' was a must and she absolutely understood the assignment and nailed it. I felt like me! But... prettier :p I'm just so grateful I chose Amber and after I saw her website and spoke to her, I knew there would be no other option. Thank you Amber, for not only being a part of our glam team, but a friend too ❤️❤️❤️

The best makeup artist ever!

Amber where do I start, I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support in not only the run up to my wedding but also the day itself. As such an anxious bride, your smile and words of encouragement comforted me when I was at my most nervous. You made me feel like an absolute princess (even with my spots!) and I’m so grateful for that. You are so so talented and anyone getting married would be so lucky to have you (like I was!) Your love and support meant the world, thank you for everything! Friends forever🤍

Just perfect in every way!

I am forever thankful that I came across Amber, she is the most caring, wonderful and talent MUA I have ever met. Amber was my wedding MUA and she made my bridesmaids, mum and I feel absolutely amazing and the best versions of ourselves. I was unsure with what look I wanted for myself and Amber reassured me that it's okay and she'll make as many tweaks as we need to make it look perfect and oh my god, we didn't need to make any tweaks because it was simply perfect in every way. I received so many compliments with how lovely my makeup was, it lasted all day and I was so pleased with my overall look. On the day of my wedding, Amber arrived with the biggest smile and excitement for me, she really cared for me and my wedding and it made such a difference to the day, everything was so calm and stress free and I really have to thank Amber for this. Nothing was ever a bother, she wanted to make sure I was just relaxing and enjoying my day which I really did. I'm so glad that we have met, not only is she so talented but she has now become my friend and I really admire her for that. Thank you!

With Amber you are in such safe hands.

I feel very lucky to have had Amber as part of my wedding morning. When things were a little stressful she helped to calm me down & went off to sort things herself. In Amber you are getting more than just your make up. She will help get you dressed, add jewellery & be an extra addition to your bride tribe. Amber knows exactly what she is doing & is so prefessional but also so personable. I couldn't recommend her enough, she listens to what you want & works her magic. My bridesmaid aren't into make up and so she gave them the look they wanted and everyone looked absolutely stunning. Amber I feel very grateful you were part of my day. Thank you so very much. You were amazing and everything we needed that morning. Xxx

Absolutely fantastic!!!

Amber was an absolute dream to work with - we could not have asked for anything more on our special day. From the make-up trial through to the wedding day, she made the experience unforgettable. She’s so friendly, happy, calm and professional - the perfect addition to your bridal party. Everyone wanted slightly different things for their make-up, and she absolutely delivered - flexing with any little request or question anyone had. She’s not only a make-up artist (and a brilliant one at that!) - she’s helping you with your veil and your dress and your shoes, and keeping you calm and happy - and getting you ready to walk down that aisle. I’d like to thank Amber from the bottom of my heart and would recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic make up artist!!!

Amazing Makeup

Amber was absolutely brilliant on our wedding morning, she was helpful with anything that needed doing and she made everyone feel at ease. She done my bridal party which consisted of 5 of us and all our make up was absolutely perfect, and stayed in place all day. I would highly recommend Amber

A lovely and friendly experience

Amber was recommended to me and I was so glad I chose her to be the make up artist for our wedding. She was very professional but also so friendly and helpful on the day. Amber did mine and seven others make up during the morning and there was no feeling of rushing. Amber was great and took her time with all of us.
