Amazing, efficient and professional

I cannot fault Katie. From the moment I booked her, I knew I was in good hands. Incredible at her job but, also a bonus that’s she’s such a lovely person.

Best ever!

Katie made me feel the best I’ve ever felt, she is friendly, attentive and just the best make up artist and sweetest soul ever. All my bridesmaids commented on how beautiful their make up was and how confident they felt on the day. Katie was amazing at making me feel calm on my wedding day too! I would highly recommend Katie to anyone and will definitely be using her in the future. Thank you for making me feel my best from start to finish, you are one in a million!

Professional, calm and a flawless make up artist

Thank you so much for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! Katie was so sweet, patient, attentive and made me feel so comfortable throughout the process. She knew exactly what I wanted and helped me stay calm before the big day, I knew I could trust her to make me look amazing and she absolutely nailed it. I felt so pretty and confident the whole day and I couldn’t have asked for more, thank you so much again. I’ve recommended you to all my friends who are brides to be!

World class- could not have asked for a better MUA for my wedding

Perfect in every way. Katie is so great, I literally felt like I’d known her for years! Nothing was too much for her, she was happy to try a few styles on my trial and she made me and my bridesmaids look and feel incredible on my wedding day. Definitely book Katie!

Simply Amazing

Katie was great from start to finish and really made me feel at ease throughout the whole process.
On my trial, she was open with my suggestions and also gave great advice and tweaks. You can really tell she is an expert in her field.
I knew from the trial she was who I was going to go with, not only for her incredible make up skills but her great personality and flexibility.
The wedding morning, despite the very early start, Katie was there with great energy and did not disappoint with making me feel amazing along with the bridal tribe.
Everyone commented on how flawless my make up was and the bridesmaids and the mothers were so happy.
Thanks so much Katie, I really couldn’t recommend you enough!

Beautiful make up and make up artist !

It was a pleasure to have Katie a part of my day, she was so friendly and professional. The make up was beautiful and just what I had asked for, if not better. I also got some great make up tips along the way !

Absolutely fabulous

Katie was nothing less then absolutely fabulous. Katie asked what I didn't like and what I do. She listened to my vision and created a gorgeous look. I did have a few twicks that I personally wanted but she listened attentively and exacuted it perfectly on the day. Katie is amazing at what she does all whilst being friendly, warm, welcoming and yet very professional. I couldnt fault her. I would recommend her in a heart beat. I will definitely be using Katie again.
