She really is amazing and makeup from natural to ultra glamorous look.
Knows her knowledge on all makeup brands and I felt a million dollars , wouldn’t use anyone else.
My bridesmaids also loved their makeup.
Thank you Hester so much , I had so many compliments and wows on the day, already been asked who I used.
Lots of love
Hester went above and beyond on the day, helped with the dress etc... but best of all was the make-up! Wow 👌 perfect colour match for me, even though I didn't have a trial, and most importantly the bride was happy and looked stunning, a beautiful version of herself (not over done). She applied lashes to complete the look and gave us both touch up bags, but we only used them once and the make-up lasted all night!
I will definitely be booking Hester again for future parties and weddings.
I'm a make-up artist myself and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Thank you so much.
Best Makeup Artist Ever
My wedding day 15/9/2023
Thank you for everything love you always Marie Xx
My experience with Hester from the beginning right through to her handing me over to my son to give me away was seamless she is a true professional, kind and caring, humorous and fun to be around, she’s very flexible and extremely easy to work with, her talents are endless I just love her to bits. Xx
Book without any doubt!
Amazing makeup artist!
Thank you so much, me and Nat loved meeting you and are both so happy you were a part of our day!
We 100% recommend!
Great make up artist
Thank you Hester for making me feel so special, I really loved the look. (So much so that after the wedding, I contacted Hester and she kindly provided me with all the details of products used on the day!)
Don’t hesitate to book - you’ll be so glad you did!
The best makeup artist and support on the day
After my trial my skin had become drier, meaning that products weren’t sitting on my face as well as they should. Hester was on hand to discuss everything in the build up and make me feel so comfortable knowing I was in safe hands and she’d be able to switch it up on the day.
She did just that and the end result was I felt more beautiful than ever and my 5 bridesmaids and mother looked stunning.
She talked me through everything and worked up my look so that it not only gave me what I’d asked but was improved based on her experience. For example, I’d said I didn’t want lashes but she was able to suggest some that were so so natural that my lashes just looked fuller. She definitely knows best!!!
Hester was more than a make up artist. She knew when to ask if I was ok and was a source of calm all morning. She was so so lovely with my grandma as well, letting her batter away and making her feel special by having a quick go with her eyebrows and some lipstick.
Compared to other artists I’ve used before Hester honestly cannot do enough for you. The whole party had the option to have lashes, we all got little care bags for top ups for lipsticks, we were able to come back for body glow once dresses were on and she stayed with me right until we got in the car. On hand for anything we needed .
In summary you don’t get a makeup artist with Hester you get a fantastic addition to your wedding party and I couldn’t be more grateful!!
Hester lily make up
Schedule was really good and all ready in time and worked amazingly with hairdressers
Also took the loveliest photo of my daughter
Makeup lasted until the small wee hours I think it might of still been on the next day too !
The most perfect finishing touch
Hester got my look perfect in one go! Our trial was fun and her skincare recommendations were so great and helpful I am still using the products now!
On the day itself Hester felt like part of my bridal party. From helping my mum feel like her best self to joining in the dance party she was an instant friend. My makeup didn’t just last the day, I still looked amazing after 8hrs of dancing and drinking in the August sun.
Cotswolds finest MUA
Hester made each of our make up suitable for each of us, making us all feel utterly fabulous.
I have been fortunate to have Hester give me many looks over time and not one of them has disappointed. I need another excuse to get booked in with Hester again ASAP.
Thank you for making me feel amazing, it helps you’re such a wonderful, beautiful sole too!
So lucky to have found you!
