    Absolutely amazing

    Claire did my make up as a bridesmaid for my friends wedding. I was unsure what I wanted and told her to do what she felt would look best. Claire did an amazing job ensuring the make-up was faded in with my skin tones and hair line. The end result was perfect and many people commented throughout the day how lovely the make up was! I will certainly be using Claire again for future events as I was so pleased with how she did my make up and it was not over the top. Thank you so much Claire!

    Kent Professional Makeup's reply:

    Thank you so much Stacey for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to do your makeup and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Wedding make up

    So from the first chat I had with Clare I was amazed by her friendliness and professionalism and knew I'd be comfortable having my makeup done by her having never done anything like this before. The trial was great, Clare gave great advice and made sure we was 100% happy with everything before leaving. On the wedding day she got to our hotel allowing plenty of time for myself, mother and 2 bridesmaids, although we only had a tiny room she managed to work around it comfortably and make us feel at ease and we all loved our makeup which stayed on all day (except the lipstick but that was my bad for not seeing the spare she'd left for me :P) The only thing I would say is I wish there had of been before and after pictures of myself like there were of everyone else since the photographer didn't get there till alot later on but that's my bad again for not asking, sorry Clare! Overall a great experience and I'd definitely recommend.

    Kent Professional Makeup's reply:

    Thank you Kelly for allowing me to be your makeup artist. I'm sorry you didn't rate me excellent in some areas after such an amazing review from you. Please feel free to share with me directly any specific areas you feel I could have improved on. I look forward to hopefully treating you and your family in the future for maybe beauty or complementary therapies.

    Claire really put me at ease!

    Claire did my makeup for my wedding last summer. As someone who doesn’t wear much makeup I wanted a very natural look. Claire was so friendly and made me feel so comfortable. She kept asking if it was okay and was really chatty throughout. Thank you Claire! Lucy

    Kent Professional Makeup's reply:

    It was a pleasure to be part of your special day and I'm so pleased you liked it. Thank you so much for my lovely review.

    Professional and friendly, made me feel really comfortable

    Very knowledgable and professional, and a pleasure to work with! She is extremely dedicated to her job and makes you feel completely at ease. She took on board all of my ideas and worked with me to create a perfect look, using her professional opinion. Incredibly accommodating and made me feel very relaxed and excited for the big day! Nothing was too much to ask and she wanted to make sure I was 100% happy. She was also very lovely to have a chat with and evidently cares a lot about all her brides!

    Kent Professional Makeup's reply:

    Wow Laura, what a review. Thank you so much. I do try to go above and beyond to help my bridal parties out, as I know how stressful yet special wedding days are. Looking forward to seeing you soon. X

    Just fantastic truly wonderful makeup and Claire is a delight ❤️

    I was really worried about my makeup as a more mature bride (57) and did not want to feel too made up as I don’t wear much makeup. At the trial Claire put me at ease straight away and really listened to my requests… Claire is friendly and so professional making sure I was happy at every stage, Thank you Claire for making me and my bridesmaids all feel beautiful happy and confident…we couldn’t have done it without you 🙏 xxx
