A "Make Up" Dream! Absolute perfection!

Wow, what can I say! Kelly was a real dream when it came to prepping and planning and then another level on the day. Such calming and chilled vibes with insane talent.

We were a party of 6 with a few very tricky and particular individuals and I can honestly say that none of us could fault the final result. The make up lasted for the full day and the pictures look fab. The brief was to enhance the natural beauty and everything was perfect.

Communication pre wedding was quick and detailed, Kelly really took the time to get to know myself and the wedding to ensure everything aligned perfectly. The trial was great to make sure we had everything nailed for the big day.

Such a lovely lovely talented individual, I would shout from the roof tops to recommend and I will definitely look to use Kelly again in the future!

Excellent make up for bridal and bridesmaids

Kelly was absolutely fantastic on my wedding day, i had a trial with her first and this was great as it was one less thing to worry about on my wedding day as the make up was perfect. Kelly saw my vision for my own make up and for my bridesmaids and they all looked incredible, the make up stayed put all day and night, i can't recommend Kelly enough.

So so glad I booked Kelly!

I’m so incredibly glad I booked Kelly to do my bridal makeup. Kelly is so knowledgeable and I trusted her completely. I don’t wear makeup often and Kelly made me feel like a million dollars. She also did an incredible job with my bridal party and was such a calming but fun presence on the day. My makeup stayed on literally all day throughout lots and lots of crying and i was just blown away

Best Bridal Makeup

Kelly prepared me for my wedding in September 2023. I really appreciate that she was able to squeeze me for her tight schedule considering my short notice. She was very responsive and organized throughout the whole process and her expertise/professionalism in the field led to a very beautiful result. I was given some useful tips for my skincare routine in our trial that I am still using! I will definitely recommend Kelly if you ever need an experienced make-up artist for important occasions. You will be in good hands!

Five stars!

I was so happy with my experience with Kelly. Booking her was really easy. Before my trial she asked what I was looking for, and during the trial she kept stopping to check I was happy with each area which allowed us to figure out exactly what I wanted. On the day of the wedding she was really great, she made me and my bridesmaids look amazing, and she made me feel relaxed while chatting to her when getting my makeup done.

Wedding day makeup for bridal party

Could not recommend Kelly enough to have do your make up on your wedding day/special occasion. From the first make up trial Kelly was nothing but professional. I wanted quite a natural look but other than that was unsure of what I wanted, Kelly had the best advice and looks for me to try even with my sensitive skin. I was delighted with my trial and knew I would be in safe hands.
When my wedding morning arrived Kelly immediately felt like part of my bridal party. Joining in with all our excitement, making it such a relaxing space to get ready in and a lovely person to have around you.
She knew exactly how long each look would take and had the entire morning scheduled taking any stress away from us.
Kelly made sure I had supplies to take with me for any touch ups, she even helped me with my dress!
After the day I had so many people comment on my look and was asked for the details of who did my make up.
I would highly recommend Kelly to anyone looking for a skilled, professional and friendly MUA for any occasion you might have. I wouldn’t have anyone else now!
Thank you again Kelly

Wedding make up

I had my wedding make up & bridal party make up done by Kelly! I enjoyed the make up trial and make up on the day made me feel very special. The make up lasted all day and looked lovely in our wedding pictures.
Kelly was really friendly and took on board the style of make up I was looking for on my wedding day and was great recommending different shades to try. I was really happy with the bridal party make up and they too felt comfortable. I would highly recommend her for make up!

Excellent, couldn’t be happier!

Forever grateful to Kelly for helping me feel and look amazing on my wedding day. I am not very good when it comes to doing my own makeup so to have someone who knows exactly what they are doing takes all the stress away! Mine and my bridesmaids makeup looked great all day long. The girls looked flawless with their natural look. I had many comments on the lovely makeup and the photos show it too! Wish I was this talented!
