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!Sent on 14/12/2020

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.Sent on 12/12/2020

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.Sent on 15/12/2020
