    Talented and lovely MUA who made us look amazing!

    Gemma was the best MUA I could have booked for our wedding in May 2021. She was so flexible and understanding regarding Covid and potential date changes which meant I didn't need to worry or stress about that. Her kit is amazing- she only uses products that are excellent quality and we were really impressed with the products she had. On the day, she was so calm and lovely and made us look beautiful due to her talent and expertise. Thank you so much Gemma!

    GemMakeup's reply:

    Thank you so much for the lovely review Amelia! It was a pleasure glamming you all and thank you for making me feel so welcome and allowing me to be part of your morning! Huge congratulations again :) xx

    Cannot recommend Gemma enough, she is a dream!

    From the minute I enquired to the special day, Gemma has been nothing but sheer excellence, Her work is just beautiful and what really drew me into her page.

    At the trial she was just so friendly, professional and effortless at makeup, really understanding my skin, makeup preferences and type of look i wanted to have for the day. She really took the time to understand all aspects of the wedding to ensure both mine and my bridesmaids makeup matched with the colour scheme and theme of the wedding.

    She was so on the ball with everything and was always there for any queries i had, It was like talking to a friend rather than a supplier!

    On the day she was very prompt with her timing, professional with the order of completing the makeup on the bridal party and was just brilliant at working alongside my hair stylist. The makeup really spoke for itself with the beauty of it and made me and my bridesmaids really feel amazing. I really cannot recommend Gemma enough, she is a strong business woman who really is top class in her profession! Her work really does speak for itself but she is also just a genuinely lovely person who i would consider a friend now.

    Thank you Gemma (:

    Would Highly recommend Gemma!

    I hired Gemma to do my wedding make up for myself and my bridal party and I could not have been happier. She is a true professional and genuinely lovely person to be around, putting me at ease from trial to the day. I loved my make up on the day and felt beautiful, as well as all my bridal party. I would highly recommend!

    Brilliant Make UP

    A lovely hardworking and professional young lady. Gemma did a fantastic job on both our trial and wedding day. Myself, Bridesmaids and Mum were so pleased with what she did. I was exceptionally pleased with the way Gemma did my eyes, they really stood out in a way that I could never achieve. I would highly recommend Gemma.

    Perfect! 1,000% recommend

    Gemma done my makeup (the bride), mother of the bride, 2 bridesmaids and 2 flower girls to say she’s amazing at her job is an understatement, Gemma made me feel like a complete princess & eased my nerves on my big day and I cannot thank her enough, she is extremely professional and stayed with me until I left the room for final touches. Gemma’s Attention to detail is 2nd to none, even putting a little bit of blusher & lip gloss on my flower girls to make them feel involved just made them feel so so special, my make up was flawless and stayed on until the early hours when my big day ended, she’s uses the best quality products, I have used Gemma for other occasions in the past and will continue to do so she’s my go to make up artist

    Professional, attention to detail, strives for perfection

    Gemma has an amazing eye for detail and offers the best service and advice. She done myself (Bride), Mother of Bride and 3 Bridesmaids. She is quick but not at all rushed of “cut corner”. She made us all feel entirely at ease and listened to what I wanted the final outcome to be. She uses the best quality makeup from prep to final touches. I have since used Gemma for other occasions and receive such lovely compliments.
