So much more than an amazing MUA

Sophie was beyond fantastic. Not only is she an amazing make up artist, she’s also one of the loveliest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting.
She did the make up for me, my mum and two bridesmaids on the day. All amazing. Understood the assignment 100%.
What meant the most for me though was my trial. I’d been suffering from terrible anxiety at the time and very nearly cancelled the trial. Mum convinced me not to and I’m SO glad! Sophie was an absolute angel. She made me feel happy again. Both with her magical skills and her super calm and unbelievably kind personality. Please don’t hesitate in booking her.
Thank you so very very much, Sophie, for everything.

Amazing, completely recommmend

I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone who is getting married (or any other event!). I am a (tired) mum of a toddler and was also pregnant on my wedding day, but Sophie made me look and feel absolutely amazing ❤️ she went above and beyond and stayed for ages after she’d finished mine and my bridesmaid’s make up, just so she could do last minute touch ups right before I walked down the aisle. She is also really calming and friendly. Can’t recommend Sophie enough, thank you so much!

Really friendly and made me feel beautiful

Sophie was amazing, really friendly and so pofessional. All the bridesmaid's loved their makeup, and they all looked so beautiful. It lasted all day and through the evening.

She made us all feel beautiful, and the mothers loved their makeup the most, especially as they don't usually wear makeup. I would highly recommend Sophie and I would 100% use her again.

Amazing make up artist

I’m so happy that you were there on my big day to do the make up. You are incredible at what you do and we all loved your work 🤍 I’ve never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day! You went above and beyond what you were there to do and those little moments where I started to panic were all sorted because of you. I honestly couldn’t be more grateful - thank you so much xxx

Amazing makeup artist!!

From the first moment I contacted Sophie to enquire about her services she was prompt, professional and soo helpful. She was an absolute dream to work with during my trial and on my wedding day, and my makeup for me and my bridesmaids was exactly what I wanted and was flawless. I would highly recommend her as a makeup artist for any occasion!!
