Stunning hair and make up

Kay is sensational.
I am useless with hair and make up and I couldn't believe the finish with both on my wedding day.
Kay helped with the magic of the day by making me feel a million dollars before I had even put my dress on. Cannot recommend Kay highly enough.

So talented!

Kay is so unbelievably talented and despite me only sending over minimal photos of my desired make up look for the day (as I had to cancel our trial last minute) Kay captured the exact look I was going for.
My make up lasted all day with minimal touch ups required and I still felt flowing by 11.30pm that night! This never happens when I do my own make up!
In addition Kay worked on my mum who has very troublesome rosacea skin and not only made my mum feel instantly at ease but made my mums skin flawless with little to no redness.
Her calm, friendly and kind nature shows through and made me feel very calm all morning! I would highly recommend her!

Highly talented and professional

Kay is simply amazing! She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and highly skilled. Kay was very responsive in the planning stages and was so easy to communicate with, she took on my brief and executed it with perfection.
Kay knows how to work with each person’s unique features, which is especially important with a bridal party of all ages and skin types!
Kay made my makeup and skin look flawless, I received so many compliments and would not look anywhere else for a makeup artist, I highly recommend. Thank you Kay!

Kay is an inspiring make up artist with outstanding professionalism. She has aspiring imagination with her individual clients and her work is seemingly consistent! She has and never would let any of her clients down, she treats everyone with an outstanding service and service is always with a smile!

Kay was fantastic, she created the perfect make up for my perfect day. Kay worked efficiently and very professionally and I was impressed with the quality of her products and techniques, my make up lasted the whole day -even through the many tears! Would recommend in a heartbeat.
