Can’t comment on full experience but…

Kayleigh did my make up as a bridesmaid and I can’t fault her work. She executed my request perfectly first time. She made my best friend look absolutely stunning on the day, a very different look to my own as the bride wanted a very low key look and again she did this beautifully. I would have loved to use Kayleigh for my own wedding but it’s in another country!

Perfect makeup!!

Kayleigh did my wedding makeup in April 2023 and I couldn’t be happier that I chose her. During my trial she was so nice and helped create a look that was exactly what I wanted and on the wedding morning she was so calm and friendly to have around. Everyones makeup looked absolutely amazing and everyone was so pleased with the looks she created. My makeup was absolutely perfect! All the makeup lasted all day, even through crying throughout the speeches. Would highly recommend Kayleigh!

Loved my make up!

Kayleigh had done my make up for me 3 and a half years ago when I was a bridesmaid for my best friend and I loved it so I got her to work her magic for my wedding this year!
My make up was perfect, she was so professional and when I had my trial really listened to what I would like and I was able to tweak whatever. Which only happened to be my lipstick colour which made it perfect!
Kayleigh did my make up for myself, 2 bridesmaids and my mum and everyone looked so pretty! She really does enhance everyone’s natural features and does such gorgeous make up!
My make up lasted all day and I was so pleased with it. She arrived on the morning of the wedding nice and early and had us all ready early enough to allow for getting dressed, she was cool calm and collected which is just what you need on the morning of your wedding!
I’d definitely recommend Kayleigh to anyone! And if you follow her on Instagram she has loads of useful tips and discount codes which help with me re stocking my make up bag!
Thank you Kayleigh!

Amazing Make up Artist!!! Highly Recommend!!!

We got married in September and had Kayleigh as our make up Artist! Kayleigh was amazing from Start to finish and I can not recommend her enough! Myself and my mum went for my Bridal make up trial and I was so happy with the outcome that I was so excited for the wedding! She also gave us make up tips and advice and also helped my mum with her eyebrows- which she loved!
On the wedding day, Kayleigh was amazing! She came to the venue really early and had 3 bridesmaids, bride and 2 mums to do! The logistics were complicated with us being in a lodge, then a bridal suite and then my MIL in a bedroom. But Kayleigh was fantastic and went up and down into rooms for us which I really did appreciate!
All the make up was absolutely perfect and what we wanted! We all looked so natural and beautiful! I was so happy with my Bridal make up and I felt amazing on the day!

Thank you so much Kayleigh! If anyone needs a make up artist in Essex, Kayleigh is your woman!

Perfect and Professional wedding makeup

I found Kayleigh when first searching for my wedding makeup artist, and immediately loved her style. Having never had my makeup professionally done before I was not sure what to expect, however after the makeup trial I felt completely at ease by Kayleigh’s professionalism and the result. On the wedding day Kayleigh was super flexible, squeezing in one of my bridesmaids (who didn’t want makeup) as she changed her mind at the last minute after seeing how good the makeup looked in everyone else! My makeup stayed perfect all day and I loved how Kayleigh tweaked from the trial on the day to match my complexion and the sunny weather! Highly recommend to anyone looking for bridal, mothers of the bride and bridesmaid makeup.

Wow! I can’t recommend Kayleigh enough…

Wow - what can I say about Kayleigh?!!

I booked Kayleigh for my wedding make up and I found her on Instagram. I’m not much of a make up wearer but I liked all the pics she had posted of previous brides and the mixture of looks that were available - from delicate and minimal to glam and wow.

I had my trial with Kayleigh and she immediately put me at ease. I had already had my hair trial that morning which didn’t go to plan and left me feeling apprehensive and nervous, however Kayleigh took the time to find out all the little details of the wedding and she even recommended other hair stylists for me to reach out to.

At the time I had a brace and was struggling to see the overall look but on the day she smashed it out of the park and I looked and felt amazing! She made sure that there was enough time for me to make sure we got it right… and all my bridesmaids were super happy with their looks too.

Not only did Kayleigh make me feel the most confident I’ve ever felt, she also helped with the timings on the day - making sure I got in my dress in time and that my bridesmaids were all ready to go and that we were all on schedule.

Thank you so much Kayleigh!

Amazing Make Up Artist!

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better make up artist for my wedding day. My make up was completely perfect and lasted the whole day and evening of my wedding! My bridesmaids make up was also perfect! Thank you Kayleigh!! would 100% recommend to any future brides!!

Kayleigh was amazing and I’d book her again in a heartbeat.

I’m not very confident with makeup, but Kayleigh was amazing, she helped me pick a look that worked for me on the trial. Then when it came to the day she replicated the look amazingly. I’ve had makeup in the past where it felt heavy and uncomfortable but this experience was the opposite, it had amazing staying power, looked great in photos, but didn’t feel heavy on my skin at all. She also managed all the timings in the morning so I was ready just in time, and didn’t rushed.

My bridesmaids and mum also loved their looks.

She has simple online systems that make booking appointments and paying invoices easy, removing any awkward back and forth on email.

Perfect Make Up

I found Kayleigh after a really long search looking for make up artists near me that specialise in a natural glam. Kayleigh was my make up artist for myself and 5 others in my bridal party and she was quick and efficient. We had a really nice time at our trial and getting to know Kayleigh! My bridesmaids couldn’t fit in a trial as this is at Kayleigh’s base in Hertfordshire, but they absolutely loved their make up so this was not an issue at all.
It was also really nice to have Kayleigh with us in the morning, she was super calm and as well as doing all the make up, Kayleigh was super helpful with advice for the morning in general. On top on this my make up stayed on all day, literally the lightest powder touch up in the evening (as recommended by Kayleigh, using the powder she suggested!). I would highly recommend Kayleigh’s services!

Amazing wedding makeup

Kayleigh was great, we had a makeup test a couple of months before the wedding and she totally understood what I was looking for in my makeup. On the day she was amazing, tailored looks for my mum and bridesmaids, made us all feel super comfortable and look our best!

Best make up!

Kayleigh was so amazing at doing my bridal and bridal party make up. She is really very experienced and very good at what she does! She took all of our wishes and desired finished looks into consideration and made us all feel so special! She made me feel so calm and relaxed on the morning of my wedding day. My make up was so 'me' and it lasted all day!

Fantastic and professional

Kayleigh was fantastic and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others. She was so calming and understood the make-up look for both myself, and the bridesmaids. She worked with us understanding what we would normally do and incorporating that into each individuals make-up.

Just Perfect!

I found Kayleigh the untraditional way - via Instragram! I spotted her profile and instantly fell in love with her work. I emailed her and she got back to me super fast and thank goodness she was free on my date. Unfortunately my wedding was postponed but Kayleigh was incredibly supportive and moved with me to my new date a year later. She was amazing at my makeup trial and she was even more amazing on the day and got straight to work on my bridal party. I have never felt more perfect in my life, my makeup was flawless and she used products that complimented everyone's skin and I will always remember that feeling. Thank you so much!

Excellent service

Kayleigh was fabulous from start to finish and I felt very relaxed and comfortable throughout. Nothing was too much trouble for her, I would 100% recommend Kayleigh to anyone looking for a natural finish for their wedding. If I am needing professional make up/ hair again I will definitely be back in contact with her. Her professionalism really shows the experience she has. Myself, my mum and bridesmaids were extremely happy with our make up done by Kayleigh.
