Perfect, Radiant, Friendly - Wonderful!

To anyone searching for a makeup artist, look no further - Cat is your girl!

She made me feel so relaxed and really put me at ease right from the get go. I knew roughly what I wanted but I struggle to describe things sometimes so Cat took the time to sit down and understand what my interpretation of “natural and soft” was, what colours I wanted, what my skin type is… and then she worked her magic and I was blown away! After that trial, I knew I was definitely in safe hands for the big day!

Cat kept in touch between my trial and the day itself, which was really reassuring and a lovely gesture, and even sent through a timeline of when she planned to arrive and the order she would be doing my makeup, my mum’s, and my bridesmaid’s in, which was a great help when it came to planning photographs and my hair.

She arrived bang on time as promised and had allowed plenty of time to get us all finished so there wasn’t ever a feeling like we had to rush, despite the general chaos you always get the morning of a wedding. She helped keep me distracted and calm while I was getting ready and stayed around to help do some last minute touch-ups before we left, which was a godsend as I’d been a bit tearful at times!

I’m so grateful for her hard work and for listening to what I wanted so that I still looked like me (just a lot prettier) for my wedding day. My makeup lasted all day and evening, and although I haven’t got my professional photos back yet, it looks absolutely fab in all the the ones I’ve seen from my guests!

Cat, you’re a superstar, thank you so much! x

The best makeup artist!! Would highly recommend!

Cat was amazing and so patient as I ended up changing my make up look last minute!! And on the day she was really calming and professional. My bridesmaids and mum looked absolutely beautiful, and my make up stayed on all day and evening - even in the photos late at night my makeup is still perfect. Catherine made me feel so beautiful and we have already re booked her for my mums birthday next year!! Would 1000% recommend Cat! X

Beautiful natural makeup! Very happy with the makeup Cat did for myself and my bridesmaids for my wedding and looked as good as it did at the end of the day from the start!

Fantastic make up artist who will slot right into your day!

I'm so pleased I booked Cat to do my wedding make up. She is super professional whilst also being relaxed and fun. As someone who doesn't regularly wear lots of make up, I was slightly daunted by the process but Cat made it so exciting. She really felt like part of the gang and I can't recommend her enough!

Amazing make up by Cat!

Thank you, Cat for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day!
Cat's communication was great from the minute I got in touch, and she was happy to answer any questions I had.
My trial was fantastic, and she really took on board what I asked for. On the day, my make up was perfect, and stayed on really well.

Great natural looking makeup, professional and flexible

Cat did the makeup for my wedding, for myself and my bridesmaid. She was brilliant, I don't wear a lot of makeup but she made me feel relaxed about it from the start and managed to create the perfect natural look that made me feel great but also looking like myself. She did my bridesmaid's makeup exactly how she wanted it too and we both got a lot of compliments. She also made us feel relaxed on the morning of the wedding and stayed around to touch up just before the ceremony. Cat was also very flexible as my venue changed with a month to go before the wedding and she had no problem with accommodating the change at relatively short notice. I would highly recommend her if you want to look extra special.

Couldn't have picked a better make up artist!

Cat was amazing! From accommodating me early to do my trial, keeping in touch between booking and the big day, and then the big day itself she was great! Cat as a person was professional yet friendly and approachable, she kept her cool even when there was a bit of a rush at the end. As a makeup artist she fulfilled the brief and more! The makeup was flawless and glowy, she took into account everyones individual style requests and skin types, the makeup lasted ALL day and none of us needed any touching up, not even a powder! My bridesmaids and I were blown away with the results and I will be recommending her to anyone and everyone!
The professional photos won't be back for a while but I have attached some iphone ones xx

Beautiful bridal make up

Cat is so good at what she does. At the make up trial she asks you how you normally have your make up and how you would like it to look for your occasion. I was so happy with my make up on my wedding day, it was so natural and just what I wanted. It was a very hot day on my wedding day so was conscious of looking shiny or my make up running off but this did not happen at all. I would highly recommend Cat, very professional and well priced too.

Very professional, friendly and the perfect natural look

Cat was really friendly, helpful and responsive right from the initial email inquiry. I wasn’t sure about booking a makeup artist for my wedding as I wanted to look natural and like myself. We all loved our makeup. She had us ready about an hour before we had to leave and stayed until we left to check our makeup once we got dressed. It was a really nice chilled morning getting ready for the wedding and I’m really glad I booked Cat as it took all the stress away.

More like a friend than a MUA!

From the moment I met Cat at my trial I knew I had picked the right person to do my make up. I wanted a natural look but enough to look good in photos. She did exactly what I asked and it looked amazing and stayed on for the 13 hours I had it on! My bridesmaids also had natural looks and both were so happy and looked beautiful. She was so friendly and made me feel so calm on the day and she felt like one of my friends. I can't recommend her highly enough. I don't have my professional photos back yet but even in friends photos it looks fantastic.
