Princess worthy makeup

Jess is just absolutely amazing, everything about working with her is great. I showed her my inspiration pictures for my hair and make up and she came up with the perfect look. I felt like a real princess on my wedding day.

The team she bought with her for the rest of the bridal party were also fantastic, and they all joined it with the girly chat on the morning of the wedding and it made the whole experience unforgettable. Everyone looked stunning, their work is flawless.

Jess made me feel incredible!

Jess is incredibly talented and I鈥檓 SO glad she was part of my Wedding! At my trial she made me feel at ease, took her time and listened to me. My bridesmaids absolutely loved their hair and received compliments throughout the day! Jess made me feel so beautiful and my look was exactly what I had dreamed of! And despite an accidental short fringe cut a few weeks prior at my hairdressers, Jess seamlessly styled my hair to which you would not have even known! I would not hesitate to recommend Jess. Thank you so much!!

Absolutely amazing

I got married in January 2022 and was let down by the lady I booked for my bridesmaids makeup, I contacted Jessica about a week before the wedding and she was so quick to reply. She sent me all the info I needed right away and was so amazing and professional throughout despite it all being last minute!
On the day she was brilliant, she turned up on time and got started right away making my bridesmaids look even more stunning! They were all so happy with how they looked. Thank you so much Jessica!

I felt so beautiful

I am so glad I found Jess on here!! She was professional, friendly and so talented. She listened to my ideas and came up with something that suited me during the trial. On the actual wedding day, she was on time and brought a lovely calm energy as well. Thank you Jess xx

Jess is amazing!

Just like all the previous reviews, I can't recommend Jess highly enough! She was brilliant right from the trial (which was so much fun!) through to the day itself. It was like having one of my friends there, she made us feel so relaxed!
If you are like me and didn't know exactly what you want Jess will definitely help and give advice and she was always on hand on watsapp if you needed to ask any questions ahead of the day which I found really useful.
The amount of compliments I've had I will definitely be using Jess in the future for any special occasions and recommending her to all my friends :)

Fantastic!

Jessica was wonderful to work with start to finish from the trial to our wedding day. Having her with my bridal party really felt like she was one of the girls and was meant to be there, she was really calm and collected and professional and myself as the bride, my mum and my bridesmaids were all incredibly happy with our hair and make up.
I can鈥檛 thank you enough Jessica! 馃檹鉂わ笍

Highly recommend

We all loved our hair and makeup on my wedding day. I absolutely loved the individual lashes, they looked so natural and glamorous. The morning of the wedding with us all getting ready ran so smoothly which helped me to relax. My hair and makeup stayed in place all day too! I was very picky during my trial but Jess was so helpful and accommodating. I would definitely recommend Jess for your wedding or special event. Thank you so much xx

Fantastic - definitely recommend!

Definitely the right choice! I organised my wedding at short notice (3 months) and Jessica was initially booked for my date but luckily had a cancellation. She was very responsive to messages throughout and we managed to get things arranged! I know very little about makeup so took Jess's advice, the trial was really useful.
Jess was punctual and professional but friendly with it. She had a timeline for the day which worked perfectly and the end results were fantastic. My MoH and I felt a million dollars and had the best day!

Truly amazing

Jess did the most amazing job on my wedding day for my make up and hair and the make up for my bridesmaids and bridesmaid! She created the most flattering looks for our make up which lasted all day as well as helping with my skincare leading up to the day! Truly couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Flawless Hair and Makeup

Massively recommend Jess. Great communication when booking, having being recommended by another bride. Jess was organised and a friendly face which is much needed on an exciting day! She and her team (for 4 bridesmaids and my Mum), got us all hair and make up ready in time and made us feel so at ease. Her artistic talent ensured my makeup stayed put all day!

So happy I found Jess!

I was looking for someone who does amazing hair AND amazing makeup, it took me a while to find the perfect person but eventually I found Jess! We had a great trial before the day and then due to covid we had to reschedule the wedding a few times, it was a stressful time but Jess was so understanding and flexible.

We all looked and felt amazing on the day, Jess is so calming and is just what you need on the morning of your wedding! I will be recommending her to everyone I know x

Talented hair and makeup artist

I was absolutely delighted with my wedding hair and makeup, Jess is so professional and creative. She was very calm on the wedding morning and also made it fun, exactly what you want! I opted for a natural makeup look with a classic and formal hairstyle and it was just as I had hoped for. I am a bit of a perfectionist, but I honestly couldn鈥檛 fault any of it. My hair and makeup stayed in place all day and I have no hesitation in recommending Jess.

Perfect

Jess is incredible! My makeup for my wedding day was one of the biggest things for me. I spent ages asking people for recommendations and searching the internet. As soon as I found Jess I was so relieved. She was amazing my mum, bridesmaids and myself looked flawless on the day, highly recommend.

Absolutely amazing!

Jess made me look stunning on my wedding day, one of my friends said I looked like a movie star. I was so thrilled and I felt amazing all day. I couldn't have felt more comfortable with the whole process, I was a little nervous beforehand as I don't wear a lot of makeup normally but she created a very natural look and my hair up arrangement looked beautiful even though I wasn't really sure what I wanted at the beginning. I had so many lovely comments from people. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jess to anyone, I'm so glad I chose her for my special day, she was amazing and such a lovely person!

Amazing!

Jessica did an amazing job from start to finish for my wedding. She listened to what I was after and made my vision come to life. I felt glamorous and beautiful but not over done. For someone like me who never wears makeup, she made it seem natural and made me look amazing. She was friendly and helped us all relax on the day of my wedding. I could not have asked for a more talented professional. She worked her magic on my wedding party even though we were in tight quarters. If you are looking for someone to help you feel special on your special days, she is the lady for you. I can't recommend her more highly.
