Outstanding Makeup Artist

Joanna is an incredible makeup artist.
She listened to all my thoughts and ideas and created a look I was blown away with showing me step by step so we were on the same page. I loved my makeup and it stayed all day and night!
She is so lovely, kind and professional and made me feel like I had known her for years.
She arrived early to set up, ran smoothly to times and was on hand for anyone who needed it, even after she did all the makeup. She stayed on hand until I was about to walk down the aisle and make me feel a million dollars!!! She read the room and acted like the mum I needed (I lost mine) and did everything to make me feel looked after, beautiful, cared for and special, what a gift.
She even dried my flower stems for my full bridal party and helped me in my dress and gave tips on how to hold flowers, to move my engagement ring to the other finger ready etc, things I hadn't thought of.
No words can describe my thanks and memories of feeling and looking the way I did, all my bridesmaids loved their makeup aswell and want Joanna for their weddings!
Joanna will be my go to for occasional makeup in future.
Can't recommend her enough, our makeup looks amazing on the photos too!
Thank you Joanna, for everything. xxx

Thank you - the best

Joanna is a fantastic make up artists. She made me feel so relaxed from the trial to the big day. Turned up early, ready to go! Joanna made extra care to ensure i was happy with everything, i was topped up throughout the morning. Not only i Joanna a make up artists, she is a genuinely lovely person. She ensured i looked great in my dress, built up my confidence, helped with perfume, confidence and any mid morning wobbles and stayed with me until the very last min. A truly lovely person who is a fantastic artist. My make up lasted all day and was flawless!

Amazing make up artist and the loveliest person!

I cannot recommend Joanna enough, she is an amazing make up artist and the loveliest person! I was so pleased with my wedding makeup! I requested quite a natural look, which Joanna understood completely and was able to make me feel really confident about how I looked. Joanna also did makeup for my Mum and three bridesmaids and was able to tailor each look to their requests. We were all so happy with our makeup and it lasted perfectly all day.

It was also such a pleasure to have Joanna with us on the morning of our wedding, she felt part of the group and was so chatty and great fun to be with. She also helped me into my dress and ensured it fitted perfectly and stayed right until I walked down the aisle to ensure my makeup was perfect.

Thank you so much!!
