Amazing, thank you Karen!

Cant recommend Karen at Bride Beautiful enough. She was amazing from start to finish and a pleasure to have with us on the day. She made me feel and look amazing. We had a lot of people to make up and she was able to bring along a second make up artist, Chloe, who was also amazing. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day!

Amazing amazing amazing - from start to finish!!!

I searched loads of accounts online looking for the perfect makeup artist for my big day and I am SO glad I found Karen. From our first chat on Instagram she was soooo lovely, bubbly and friendly and I just knew I had to book her. I was also lucky enough to be bought a makeup lesson from her for my birthday so I got to meet her before my trial which was really lovely. She made me feel so beautiful both at my trial and on my big day and supported me in so many other ways too. She also gave lots of tips and advice on skincare before the wedding day which really helped ensure my skin was hydrated and smooth. Karen also uses excellent products, my makeup and the makeup on all of my bridesmaids lasted all day and I didn’t even require any touch ups during the day. She also done my mums makeup and she was SO pleased and got so many compliments throughout the day. I would 1000000% recommend Karen as a makeup artist, by my wedding day it felt like she was more of a friend. Thank you so much Karen for being so amazing and lovely!!!

Beyond expectations⭐

My day was made beyond special by my absolute amazing makeup. I loved the look, we changed and went with more pinks and it truly made the whole day. It was flawless, Karen did mine and my mums as well as the bridesmaids. I look at the photos and couldn't be any happier. I am so pleased I choose her, we all were so so happy xx

Make-Up Queen

Karen did my bridal make up for me, my mum and some of my bridesmaids in August 2023 and we all absolutely loved how it turned out. Karen listened to what each of my bridesmaids liked and made the morning so much fun for us all! The make up lasted all day and night and I had so many compliments from our wedding guests. A true professional with so much talent!
Karen, thank you for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day xx

Incredible artist, made me feel absolutely amazing!

From the initial enquiry, make up trial and and up to the big day, Karen made the process a breeze! It was a privilege to have her on my team, she made me feel incredible, she made my bridesmaids look stunning and the whole morning was so fun. Not only did Karen make up mine and my bridesmaids faces, but she took photos and videos of the morning which were such a lovely surprise to receive before I received my official pictures. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you are a true professional and incredible artist xxx

Couldn't have been happier!

Karen did my bridal make up for my big day in March 2023 along with some of my bridesmaids and we was all so pleased with it! Karen made the morning such a breeze and really listened to what everyone wanted.

I'm not someone that wears lots of make up so I was worried it was going to look/feel too much on my face however during my trial Karen put my mind at ease and created the most beautiful look that I was blown away by. It was then recreated on the wedding morning to perfection and lasted all day!!

Thank you Karen for making me feel so beautiful x

Simply the best

Before I had booked Karen for my wedding she was so helpful, responsive and full of advice, and by the time my wedding trial came round it was like we were old friends! Aside from service, Karen’s talent is truly next level! I am very fussy with my makeup and was nervous that I wanted to be wowed on my wedding day, wondering if anyone could deliver to my high expectations? I promise you - Karen did not disappoint. The comments I received from all my guests blew me away. I would not have changed a single thing about my wedding makeup and am forever grateful to Karen for making my vision come to life, for making my wedding dream become a reality.

An amazing makeup artist!

Karen is very talented and made me and the bridal party look beautiful on my wedding day. She is very cheerful and professional and never complained despite being rained on and falling over! She filled me with confidence after a bad experience with another provider and I would recommend her to anyone.

Amazing experience

I got married on 24th September 2022 and had the pleasure of having Karen do our wedding makeup. From the moment I met Karen back in June for my trial I new she was going to be fabulous. Karen is Amazing! She was professional and so friendly and made myself and 8 bridesmaids feel so comfortable. She also had all of us ready for a 1pm ceremony. All of our makeup was incredible and lasted the whole day. she truly is amazing at what she does. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their wedding. 10/10 service and a genuinely lovely lady.

Exceptional service

I had Karen for my big day, she also did my 3 bridesmaids. All of the bridesmaids where blown away with the quality and professionalism Karen provided.. she used top quality and well known brands which was good. For my make up Karen explained everything and detailed the item she used. She also went through what would look best for my skin type… I seriously couldn’t have asked for more. She was beyond and above of what I had wished for. Kind and very thoughtful lady, I would highly recommend Bridebeautiful if you want to look beautiful and at the same time relaxed I would choose all over again Karen.

AMAZING is the only word to describe her!

Karen did my bridesmaid makeup over the weekend and WOW! I was so pleased with the overall look and a photo simply doesn’t capture how great she is at her work. I love the fact she goes the extra mile- she even added a touch beneath my eye to bring out the green in them! Such a down to earth and truly lovely lady too and I couldn’t recommend enough!

Thank you Karen💗

Fantastic!

I had never had professional makeup done before but as MOTB I wanted to look my best! I loved every minute of it and the outcome was better than I could have imagined! Karen is a fantastic makeup artist and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, I felt amazing on the day and the makeup lasted all day and all night, even with happy tears! Fantastic experience from start to finish. I would definitely use Karen again, hopefully in the near future, if one or both of my other children get married!
