    Amazing! Would definitely recommend!

    Caroline saved the day!

    Caroline was booked to do my and mum’s make up for my brothers wedding. My new sister in law had an awful trial with a different make up artist 2 weeks before the wedding and Caroline was able to juggle things around so she could also do the bride’s, bride’s mum and the bridesmaids. She had a lovely manner, did the make up really beautifully (perfectly matched to our outfits) and was great value.

    Caroline Barnes's reply:

    Thank you Flora for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you all and be able to help the bridal party at such short notice. A stress you don't want before a wedding.
    Kind regards.

    I would deffinately reccomend Caroline. She made me feel at ease from the moment I met her to talking about my preferences and daily routines. Excellent advice given for aftercare and really listened to what I wanted. My make up looked flawless and all my bridesmaids were stunning. So please I chose you for one of the best days of my life. Also a big thanks for involving my little one and taking extra photos on the day.

    The perfect make up artist

    I booked Caroline to do my make up for my sisters wedding and the service I received was out of this world. Not only did I look and feel incredible but Caroline listened to what I wanted and was so kind and patient with me. I’ve had some bad experiences with my make up in the past and she took this into account and made me feel totally comfortable. I had so many compliments and the make up lasted all day and still looked perfect when I went to bed. I just need her to live with me and do that every day!

    Caroline Barnes's reply:

    Hi Kerrie,
    Let's not a pandemic get in the way of your sister's wedding. It was pleasure to do your makeup. You looked beautiful. I am also glad you felt comfortable and had a great experience.
    Kind regards.

    Wonderful experience

    I had such an amazing experience with Caro, she is totally professional and has so much passion for her job. I had my makeup applied by her for a wedding reception I was attending and I had never had a professional apply my makeup previously so I was nervous, but Caro put me at ease with her wealth of knowledge and we went through colour palettes and she advised what would suit my skin tone and what would compliment my outfit on the day. She put me at ease and gave me tips to take away and use on every day make up application.
    I cant recommend her enough, such an amazing artist, and so warm and friendly..she made me feel very special and my look was complimented on by so many....love love love!! ??

    Caroline Barnes's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Vanessa! I loved doing your makeup. I’m glad you’ve also taken away some tips for your everyday makeup! I hope to see you soon for other festivities!

    Excellent make up artistry

    My bridal make up was amazing and made me feel so beautiful. Caroline managed to achieve exactly the look that I wanted. Amazing make up artistry. She is knowledgable, easy to talk to, patient and trustworthy. I can not highly recommend her enough as your make up artist. Professionalism with a french smile.

    Caroline Barnes's reply:

    Hi Aldona! Thank you so much for your message! I will always have a French touch to whatever I do!? It’s part of me! You looked beautiful in your dress. I am glad you felt good. It was a pleasure to be part of your special day!

    Thank you Caroline x

    After seeing my sisters beautiful and elegant makeup at her birthday party, I asked her to contact Caroline for me to do my wedding makeup. She was on time, very professional, friendly and listened to what I wanted. Which is very important for wedding day makeup. We had a tester session where we explored colours and what suited my skin tone best, she was very thorough in ensuring the foundation was right. She more importantly managed to glam me up without taking away my own image. My makeup lasted the whole day, with temperatures reaching nearly 30 degrees and it looked seemless on my wedding photos. I would definitely recommend Caroline.

    Caroline Barnes's reply:

    Hi Cherri! Thank you so much for your kind message. I loved being part of your wedding day. You looked amazing and I am glad everything went well and the makeup lasted.
    Kind regards.

    Very satisfied

    I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Caroline! Both her personality and sheer talent make for a perfect wedding day makeup artist. Caroline’s professionalism is first class. She takes time to listen to what you want, is ever patient when playing around with what works for you, and makes you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. I chose a natural, simplistic style for my big day, which Caroline executed perfectly. I couldn’t recommend her more!

    Caroline Barnes's reply:

    Thank you so much Rachel! I loved doing your makeup and your bridal party too. It was a busy morning but a lot of fun. And you all looked amazing!
    Kind regards.
