Absolutely wonderful

Claire was absolutely amazing on the day of my wedding getting 7 of us ready. Claire is the most friendliest person you'll meet and she makes you feel so comfortable. Claire made all our experiences of having our make-up done fantastic and we all felt amazing after.
Thank you Claire, you gave us a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Claire.

A thoroughly relaxing experience l!

Claire was fantastic to work with, so calm, unflappable and friendly.
Her communication is excellent, we never had to wait very long for a reply to any queries we had along the way,
Her selection of makeup is phenomenal!
She was led by our wishes, never tried to force a look on us but gave excellent guidance if needed.
After the trial makeover we had a couple of last minute changes but she’s so flexible in her approach, nothing was too much trouble!
On the day she was prompt and the 5 of us were wedding ready in good time but it wasn’t rushed at all - .She made it such a relaxing experience.
2 of our party had Rosacea but with Claire’s products and skills, you would never have known.
Whilst applying the makeup she took before and after photos for each person and forwarded them on for us all to keep as memories of that part of the day.

Thank you for everything Claire and for being part of Hannah’s big day!

Calm in any storm

Claire was an absolute gem. Not only did she do two trials to make sure I was 110% happy, she also kept in contact in the run up to the big day, just checking in and making sure I was OK. Claire understands that a wedding day is a special dream and she made sure it was all a dream come true. I didn't have a chief bridesmaid or any adult bridesmaids but I really didn't need any, with Claire by my side. I really enjoyed the morning of my wedding, I felt like I was just having fun with my friends and ta da, I felt and looked stunning. If you are considering Claire, book book book!!!

Simply amazing

Claire did mine and my sisters make up last weekend for my wedding and all I have to say is WOW. She was simply amazing. Everyone mentioned how flawless my skin looked and I felt so beautiful. Claire really was professional and her confidence in her own skills relaxed you from start to finish. If you are looking for an amazing bridal make up artist then Claire really is your lady!!

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!

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.

Relaxed, friendly and professional

Clare was so lovely that I booked in again for make up a few after she had mine for a wedding!

She catered for each of us and nothing was too much trouble.

Would highly recommend without a second thought!

Would highly recommend

Claire was just fabulous!

Right from the start Claire was super helpful, accommodating and even assisted in finding us a hair stylist on the same day!

Make up was fantastic and she went above any beyond giving us little pots of lip colour, mascara etc to take with us.

I’d highly recommend Claire

Claire - thank you x
