Amazing makeup and excellent value
Fantastic experience - highly recommended
Professional, kind and brilliant
My whole experience with Lara from the get-go was nothing but postive, she put me at ease at my trial and we found what worked best for me and the look I was going for. On the day, Lara was again brilliant, she took care with my look and even made sure I took time to eat, rather than rushing me and keeping me calm. Our makeup lasted all day and still looked fresh by the time the wedding finished at 1am.
I will always recommend Lara and will use her in the future. I can't begin to thank Lara enough!
absolutely loved my bridal make up 🌟
Beautiful natural look makeup
Excellent and very professional kind lady
I recommend Lara she is superb and has lots of experience in what she does. She transformed us all in elegant looking ladies.
Great job Lara
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Excellent, professional and most importantly: CLEAN
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!!
Can't recommend her more highly!
Couldn’t recommend highly enough (mother of the bride)
All of our wedding day make up lasted all day and night and the pots of Lippy was brilliant. Lara knows her stuff.
If you want a friendly professional lady then Lara is the lady to call.
