Excellent, professional and most importantly: CLEAN
Lara did a fabulous job on myself and my bridal party's makeup for our wedding that we fitted in just before lockdown.Sent on 19/01/2021
I booked her on the back of her great reviews here and was not disappointed. It goes without saying that the makeup was fantastic. I wanted to add how she really went the extra mile to be covid-compliant. The face mask plus face shield and non stop sanitisation of her hands, products and tools was really reassuring. I understand that she took all the extra sanitisation measures of tools and products before the pandemic anyway and mostly it was the face mask and shield that were new additions to her covid makeup toolbox. This really put us at ease and I would love to hire her again for special occasion makeup.
Thank you Lara!

Perfect from start to finish!!
Lara did the most perfect job on our wedding day. She made up myself, my mum and four bridesmaids. It felt like having another member of the family in the bridal party with her in the morning. She is so calm, and personable and did the most fantastic job on us all. My skin can be a little tricky but Lara was able to cover this perfectly. I wanted a really natural look for us all and, she did just that. We still had plenty of time in the morning to have some fun without feeling rushed at all. I couldn't be happier that we chose Lara and I would recommend her make-up skills to anyone if you want a calm, professional and just truly lovely person to share the morning of your wedding with. Thank you again Lara.Sent on 16/10/2019

Can't recommend her more highly!
Lara did my make up, two bridesmaids, my mother, and my now mother-in-law. We all had individual looks that suited us perfectly and her calm approach left everyone feeling relaxed and happy for the day ahead. I couldn't have hoped for a more skilled or kinder person on the day. My skin has never glowed as much and I felt confident having my pictures taken all day and evening. The bridesmaids loved their make up and both the my mother and my now mother-in-law felt confident and looked beautiful. Thanks so much Lara, you are brilliant at what you do. Can't recommend her more highly. JackieSent on 14/04/2018
