Laura is the best!

Laura is truly the best! She went above and beyond to make me and my mom feel beautiful for my special day. She was incredibly sweet, patient, and helpful throughout the entire process, from my initial email to Whatsapp texts to the morning of getting ready! I would recommend her to any bride that truly wants to feel beautiful!

Amazing make-up artist

Laura was incredible, from the trial to the main day her work was flawless. The makeup survived 30 degrees and a freak storm! She was so bubbly and attentive to detail which is exactly what you need on your big day!

Incredible make-up, fantastic service

I cannot recommend Laura highly enough - she's a skilled make-up artist, super responsive, able to work with every kind of ask, and great fun to have in the room as you're getting ready.
From first making contact, Laura was so fast to respond, and was also able to offer me help finding a wonderful hair stylist too. She helped me set up trials for both hair and make-up at times that suited my schedule, and took the time to both listen and advise on what would look good for the day. Her studio just outside of Basingstoke is well located and a beautiful setting to visit. She was in touch at all the right times in the lead up to make arrangements, and was flexible as I added a couple of extra people to the roster last minute.
Laura and Tara (hairstylist) were in the room and set up with every tool of the trade (and some excellent lighting) in plenty of time, and made sure we got through all of the ladies with time to spare. They had just the right balance of keeping it relaxed, but ensuring we didn't wait around too long. For each lady (2 x mothers, 2 x sisters) they attentively listened to what each wanted, offered great advice, and then did a wonderful job making each of us look our best.
As the bride, I didn't want to cry and ruin my make-up, but of course I did - and I have to say you couldn't tell at all despite a steady stream of tears down my face during the ceremony. The make-up lasted all day, and was immaculate when I removed it nearly 12 hours later!
All of this, and Laura's prices were very reasonable, and much less than others I had quoted. The service was incredibly personal and easy. I would recommend her in a second if you're looking for help looking amazing for your big day!

Fantastic and would 100% recommend

Lau was fantastic and made all the bridal party feel comfortable and relaxed. I didn’t even show Lau a photo of what I liked until after the trial and she was spot on. She is a true professional.

Fantastic MUA/hair stylist

We had a great morning of the wedding getting ready with Laura. She was so attentive and listened to everything we were looking for. None of us were used to being 'glammed up' particularly so she was very patient and give us the natural looks we wanted. Thank you so much!

Amazing wedding make-up

I was fairly nervous about my wedding make-up as I don't wear a lot of make-up normally. However, Lau was amazing and I have honestly never felt more beautiful than on my wedding day. Lots of guests commented on how natural and lovely the make-up looked on myself and my bridesmaids. Laura was always really responsive and very flexible about a difficult parking situation and timings. I would encourage anyone to book with her!

Wedding make up and hair

Thank you Lau for providing hair and make up for myself and my bridesmaids! From meeting you for my trial to my wedding nothing was too much trouble. I felt at ease straight away and the conversation flowed. All my bridesmaids were also so pleased with their looks. Lau had loads of tips for me about the wedding venue as she had been a few times which was so helpful! I had a few skin worries after my trial and was given loads of tips on what to do leading up to the day which really helped!

I wish I lived closer to use more of the services you offer!

Thank you Lau for making me and my bridesmaids feel and look amazing ❤️

Truly amazing!

Laura was absolutely amazing! On my wedding day she arrived with plenty of time to spare so there was no last minute rush. She was amazing with keeping all of us so calm. She did an amazing job on my make-up and hair - it was flawless! I was worried about my hair as I was going to the church in an open-top car and she offered to follow me to the church for any last minute touch ups.
I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
Thank you Laura! xx

Highly recommend the wonderful Laura for a stress free start to your special day!

I'm so glad I choose Laura for our wedding day make up, I would highly recommend her for your special day. She was so calm which made getting ready even more enjoyable. Not to mention very patient! Being a bride that doesn't often wear make up I had no idea what I wanted but we went through an extensive trial and Laura was so helpful when it came to helping me with choosing what I wanted on the day. We also had the lovely Kimberley join to help with my bridemsaids who was fantastic too. Thank you so much for your talent, kindness and patience!

A very happy Bride, Laura was amazing, supportive and calm. Excellent make-up and hair exactly what I wanted.Highly recommended!

Laura Comley's work is absolutely brilliant. She did a brilliant make-up and hair job, she was spot on, just as I had imagined I would look. Her professionalism was portrayed in her kind and caring disposition and was so supportive up to the point of helping me adjust my dress. The attention to detail was outstanding. She was patient and understood my needs at all times, I cannot begin to thank her enough. She has certainly been part of making my Wedding Day a success by having loads of positive comments made about my hair and make-up. Will definitely repeat again. Highly recommended!!
