    Wonderful Trial

    I have booked Karen for my wedding in August 2022. Since first enquiry, her communication has been excellent; she is warm and personable with excellent professional knowledge. Mum and I met her at her studio in April for our trials and felt so at ease! We loved her work and look forward to seeing her again on my wedding day.

    Bride beautiful

    From the moment I had Karen, I knew immediately that I wanted her to be my make up artist. She instantly made me feel comfortable with her lovely personality. She guided me through the make up trial and gave me so much amazing advice.

    The passion for her job shines through and it shows in her work. I couldn't have been happier with the make up on the Wedding day, it lasted all day and looked amazing. Everyone in the bridal party looked beautiful, my Bridesmaid was so impressed with the make up Karen used on her, she bought exactly the same for herself!

    I highly recommend Karen as your make up artist. Snap her up quickly, it will be one of the best things you have ever done!

    Thank you for everything Karen, it honestly means the world and more. You absolutely deserve to be best make up artist in Essex!!

    Love Natasha xx

    Simply the best

    Karen did my make up for our big day as well as my 3 bridesmaids and both our Mum’s. We all felt like princesses on the day and loved our make up. It lasted throughout the day and into the evening , looking as fresh as when it was first done .
    Karen is so lovely and accommodating. For someone who doesn’t wear loads of make up and is very self conscious Karen put us all at ease and we couldn’t have asked for a better MUA. We loved our trials and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone! I just wish we could do it all over again.

    Highly recommend!

    I was so pleased with my make up on my wedding day. I felt transformed and so confident which is exactly how you want to feel on your big day. Karen listened to what I wanted and definitely delivered. My bridesmaids looked absolutely gorgeous. I would highly recommend Karen.

    Karen done my make up along with 4 bridesmaids and the mother of the bride in July 2021.

    Being a covid bride I had to change my date 4 times Karen was incredibly understanding and accommodating throughout. I was over the moon with my make up as were all the ladies, Karen has a wonderful personality and is incredibly indeering and was a welcomed energy to the morning of the wedding.
    She's beautifully humble and talented and If I was ever to renew my vows I know who I would be calling.

    Just amazing.

    Karen was just amazing from booking to end result. Couldn't ask for more of a relaxed morning, she made us all feel and look incredible, with beautiful make up which lasted the whole day I didn't want to take it off! Myself and my bridesmaids couldn't thank her enough.

    Huge thanks to Karen

    Karen came to my rescue when my previous makeup artist cancelled on my at short notice.

    Karen is a genuinely lovely person and good fun. At the trial she showed me what she was doing at every stage. I am a makeup obsessive so it was really interesting to what how she applied her makeup on me.

    On my wedding day Karen had 5x bridesmaids plus me to do. She did a fantastic job on us all and everyone felt their very best on the day.

    Carly Williams was my hairdresser and her and Karen work closely together. On the day you could really see the team work between them, ensuring that everyone was done to time.

    On the day Karen stayed with me right til I left to go to the church, she even assisted with helping her my dress on.

    Overall I would highly recommend Karen to any bride wanting the perfect wedding makeup done by a really lovely lady.

    Made me feel like 1 million dollars!

    Excellent service from start to finish for my wedding day. I couldn’t fit a trial in beforehand so Karen arranged for a zoom call instead and put all my nerves at ease. On the day Karen was wonderful and made us all look beautiful. I don’t normally wear makeup and wanted to still look and feel like me. Karen delivered exactly this! If you’re looking for a makeup artist in Essex, look no further!

    Amazing, professional, down to Earth MUA 🤍

    Karen made me feel like an absolute princess for my wedding and I can’t recommend her enough. She’s down to Earth and makes you feel so comfortable.
    All of my bridal party loved their make up and it lasted all day. Karen tailored the look slightly for my bridesmaid that wasn’t used to wearing makeup and even she was thrilled. ❤️
