Wedding Make-up Artist
“I cannot recommend Gemma highly enough. Throughout the whole process, she was calm, friendly and just lovely. Gemma was very accommodating and I didn’t feel ‘caked’ in make-up (my main fear!) and I became a complete convert to false eye-lashes!! She has the ability to make you feel amazing and yet look so natural. She is just brilliant. Make sure she’s the first thing you book!!!”Sent on 21/02/2018
