Perfect wedding look

I cannot thank Sylwia enough for creating the perfect look for my wedding. I felt so comfortable and beautiful walking down the aisle and it was all because of her. Sylwia impressed me from the very beginning because of her quick and professional responses to my initial enquiries. During the trial I could see how talented she was and how helpful she was in helping me chose the perfect look. On the wedding day she was super on time and she made me feel at ease. She even helped me with my dress after. Thank you so much Sylwia!

Fantastic! x

Sylwia was amazing! I absolutely loved my wedding day make up and she really put me and my bridal party at ease. It was an absolute joy having her there the morning of my wedding and I can't recommend her enough. x

Beautiful, natural wedding makeup (and a wonderful person!)

Sylwia did my makeup for my wedding in April – and it was one of the best decisions I made for the day. From the moment I met her at my trial session, Sylwia put me at ease and created a beautifully natural look. It was exactly what I was after! On the wedding day she was an extremely calming presence and immediately felt part of the gang. She even helped attach my veil after the hairdresser accidentally left without sorting it. Sylwia also did the makeup for my mum and a friend. My mum doesn't usually wear much makeup but Sylwia elevated her day-to-day look in a way that meant she still felt comfortable; mum was really impressed. I highly recommend her services!

Great experience

Sylwia did mine and my witness make-up and hair for my wedding. We did a couple of trials before the event to make sure that everything looks great and would hold even in a bad winter weather. It was a pleasure to work with Sylwia - she was very accommodating and a lovely and calming presence, took time to try various styles and products to make sure I am happy with the outcome. We were particularly impressed with the make-up that looked wonderful and would love to do a make-up lesson with her in the future.

Fantastic experience, thank you!

Sylwia was fantastic- made me and my bridesmaids feel very comfortable and made us look great- would particularly recommend her for people who don't often wear makeup or are feeling nervous because she is fantastic at making you feel comfortable and confident as well as looking great.
She also managed to be prompt on a day of train strikes, marathons and floods- almost everyone else was late so very well done!

A master at her work!

Sylwia is a dream to work with and I am so happy I chose her for my bridal makeup services. She is a master at her work but also kind, gentle and CARED about her clients. Sylwia did my makeup trial, civil ceremony and wedding makeup for myself, mother and bridesmaids. My mother was in a car accident a few days before our wedding and had major bruising and swelling around her eye. Sylwia checked in with us everyday to monitor her progress and went out and bought specific makeup and covering to make sure it was not noticeable on the big day. Sylwia did beyond a fantastic job with my mother's eye, it was completely covered and my mom felt so confident for the photos and being in front of guests. My make up was stunning as well! She exceeded all expectations and appreciate her taking special care of my mother!

Wonderful Makeup Artist

Sylwia was amazing as my makeup artist on the day of my wedding. Originally, my sister had booked Sylwia for her wedding 4 years ago, she looked beautiful and being her maid of honour I had mine done too. 4 years on and a few dodgy makeup trials with other people I knew we had to contact her to do mine for the most important day this time being a bride!!
Sylwia created a classic, soft glamorous look as I had asked for and also arranged for an assistant to help support her on the day as I had 6 bridesmaids too.
The morning was seamless - from arrival to departure Sylwia and Agata were beyond professional, such fun to have in the room and also took some lovely snaps!!
If you are looking for a makeup artist that truly listens to what you want then look no further.
Thank you Sylwia for making my face look far more wonderful than it does normally!!

Wonderful, talented, calming makeup artist & hair stylist

Thank you Sylwia for making me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day!

Sylwia is a very talented makeup artist and hair stylist, recommended by another talented makeup artist and hair stylist that I trust, so I knew that she would be brilliant before she came. However I didn’t know just how great! It’s not just Sylwia’s skills that make her wonderful (although she is talented, of course), but also her warm, calming personality that helps add a reassuring and safe feeling to your wedding preparations… exactly what you need as an anxious bride!

Sylwia did my bridal hair and makeup and I got many compliments, from friends and family, strangers, people on the street and in the pub where we had our ‘micro reception’. Oh, and of course from my new husband, who cried and said I looked ‘unbelievably gorgeous.' And I have to say, it wasn’t just the dress, I’d tried that on with no makeup on and hair in a bun and I certainly wouldn’t have turned heads :). But with everything all put together, and Sylwia’s hair and makeup, I did look and feel beautiful and confident, and I’m so grateful. My skin looked flawless and of course that’s the hardest thing to do right!

Sylwia also did my Maid of Honour’s hair and my mother’s makeup and both looked great. Overall, having Sylwia there during the wedding preparation period was appreciated by all. We feel very lucky to have found Sylwia and would not hesitate to recommend her to others.

As a bonus, a majority of her skincare and makeup is cruelty-free and organic, which I do appreciate and think you will too. There are other details which also make her first class: punctuality, professionalism, and excellent communication. She even surprised me with a certificate for trees planted in my name a few days after the wedding. Sylwia is a true gem and I’m so glad she was part of my wedding.

Beautiful Makeuo

I booked Sylwia originally for my wedding in July 2020. This was delayed due to covid but was rescheduled to this July. Sylwia was always very accommodating in terms of all the changes that had to happen. More to the point though, Sylwia was such a friendly and lovely person to work with. She is a great listener and understood what I wanted. The makeup she did for me was perfect: subtle, glowy, beautiful. She also did all my bridesmaids and catered to their individuality. Would highly recommend! x

Bride and bridesmaid makeup

Sylwia did such a beautiful job on my wedding make up, myself and my bridesmaids were all so happy with how we looked. She was such a calming presence on my wedding morning, keeping us relaxed and on schedule. Our makeup lasted well into the night, even through a few tears too!

Absolutely amazing bridal look and service!

Sylwia is absolutely amazing, don’t look elsewhere! She is hands up the best choice when it comes to professional and bridal make- up. I got married in June this year and lovely Sylwia who was recommended to me by my sister-in-law created the whole make- up/look for my bridal party. She really listened and understood the look that I had in mind and recreated exactly what I was looking for. Absolutely LOVED the make-up and products she used! Super lovely and easy process, super fair pricing too- won’t go anywhere else anymore for future events.

Simply the best!

Sylwia is everything you could ask for in a makeup artist, especially on your wedding weekend: cool, calm, professional and just generally lovely to be around. She uses all the best products and will even source your lipstick to make sure you can keep it with you on the day. I'm actually still using the mascara she gave me too! Simply the best!!

Sywia was an absolute pleasure to work with! Her work is excellent, she listened to what I liked and wanted and she exceeded my expectations!
Would highly recommend her for any special occasion you have or if you’d just like to treat yourself 😁
Thank you, Sylwia, for making me a very beautiful bride on both weddings!

Wedding make-up and hair styling

Sylwia did my bridal make-up and hair this autumn and she was nothing short of absolutely incredible. She captured exactly what I wanted, creating a very natural and relaxed look whilst still leaving me feeling glamorous and special. I didn't need to touch anything up at all throughout the day, it was all still as perfect as when she'd just put it on even after hours of celebrating.

Our wedding party was very small, with no bridesmaids at all. Sylwia was very understanding of this and adjusted her normal processes to accommodate make-up for just myself on the morning. Irrespective of the smaller job, she still went above and beyond, her communication prior to the date was excellent and she took her time, making sure everything was to the highest standard on the day. All done with a smile on her face, a calm disposition and easy conversation to settle your nerves.

Sylwia really was amazing, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking for a make-up artist - for any occasion!
