    Simply Stunning, I felt a million dollars! ✨

    Phoebe is just simply amazing. After being let down last minute by my MUA a few days before my wedding, Phoebe swooped in and I can honestly say she made me feel like a million dollars on my wedding day. Phoebe is such a lovely make-up artist, she made me and my bridesmaids feel so calm on the day and I felt like I was with just another one of my girls. Everyone commented on how good my makeup looked and I felt beautiful! She was just so fantastic. I would highly recommend Phoebe to anyone. Not only is Phoebe a lovely person, she takes great pride in her work and the outcome is amazing!!! It was definitely meant to be. If I was you I would book her up as soon as possible, you will not regret it!

    Phoebe made me feel truly beautiful and I’d recommend her to any bride-to-be!

    Phoebe did my bridal makeup at the end of June 2022 and I couldn’t be happier that she was a part of my big day. Phoebe was so thorough, professional, and friendly throughout the entire process - from exchanging emails, hosting a zoom consultation, a trial run, and of course on the morning of the wedding. As someone who doesn’t wear much makeup, Phoebe was able to give me the perfect look which was a perfect mixture of natural and glam. I got a bit teary up after seeing the results from my trial because she made me feel truly beautiful and I felt that I could put my full trust in her to do the same on the big day and she didn’t disappoint! As a bride, there is so much pressure to look and feel a certain way and Phoebe takes this pressure off of your shoulders. She was very accommodating for my group of bridesmaids and was able to bring an assistant to make sure that myself and all six of my bridesmaids could have our makeup done in time. You can tell Phoebe puts her heart and soul into her work and she puts every care into making you feel your best. My makeup lasted all day and I loved the addition of individual lashes. I would recommend her to any bride-to-be! Thank you Phoebe!

    P.s - I would also recommend hair stylist Lara Stokes, her and Phoebe work wonderfully together and they helped me have the best day! They are both extremely kind and talented ladies and amazing at what they do!

    Phoebe is fabulous!

    Phoebe is such a fabulous make up artist and I am so happy I booked her for my wedding make up. She was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and listened to all my thoughts. She did such beautiful natural make up and I felt a million dollars on the day.

    If I could relive my special day again, I would choose Phoebe over and over!

    From the initial consultation, to providing mine and my bridesmaids make up on my wedding day, Phoebe was understanding, professional and extremely knowledgeable. The looks we decided on were flawless; natural but effortless. I couldn’t thank Phoebe enough for making me feel so special on my wedding day!

    Beautiful and flawless

    Phoebe was fantastic from start to finish. She was so easy to work with and I trusted that she would do a fantastic job on my bridesmaids and MIL. They all looked beautiful and the makeup was flawless all day and night! Phoebe was so friendly, relaxing and calming and nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for a MUA who is an absolute pro then Phoebe is your person. Thanks so much again for making my day so special.

    Amazing artist!

    From the enquiry to my big day, Phoebe made the whole experience smooth, calm and magical! We had a video call, following on to a trial to make sure I got what I envisioned and then Phoebe did just that - magic! I loved how I looked and would love to do it all over again. Phoebe also made me feel calm on the morning of - I will be recommending her to all future brides that I meet. Thank you Phoebe for doing what you do and doing it so damn amazing!

    Safe Hands for your big day

    From the moment I met Phoebe I knew I was in safe hands for my big day. She is warm, fun and most importantly so talented. As someone who is set in their ways when it comes to makeup I was a little hesitant to outsource for my wedding. Phoebe listened to my concerns and wishes during the trial. I left with professional studio images to help me imagine my makeup on the day. Phoebe was also open to any tweaks to ensure I was entirely happy.
    On the day Phoebe was calm, super organised and gave all of the bridal party the same attention and beautiful makeup. Everyone had dewy, glowing skin and natural looking but special eye makeup - right on brief.
    I can’t recommend Phoebe enough, I would use her every week if I could. She is already booked for a friend’s wedding next year.

    Thanks so much! ✨✨xx

    Highly recommend!!

    Phoebe is an amazingly talented bridal makeup artist and did an incredible job on my makeup, my bridesmaid’s makeup, and my mum’s makeup.

    Phoebe fully understood the look each of us were going for and made all of us feel like the very best version of ourselves on the day!

    Phoebe carries such a kind and calming presence and was the loveliest person to have around on the morning of the wedding. I would highly, highly recommend booking Phoebe, you’ll be in the safest hands for your big day!

    Perfect wedding make up!

    Phoebe did my wedding makeup and it was absolutely perfect! I didn’t have time to have a trial before the big day so I put my full trust into Phoebe and she absolutely delivered! The makeup was so much better than a previous trial I had had with someone else. She used lovely quality makeup and it lasted all day and night without requiring any touch ups. It was so natural and glowy, I loved it! Phoebe was also really lovely to be around on my wedding morning. Thanks so much Phoebe!

    Perfect Wedding Day Makeup

    Phoebe did an absolutely amazing job both during the trial and on the wedding day. She completely got the look I was going for and it was perfect, I wouldn’t have changed a thing! The bridesmaids all loved their make up and were so happy with the look, she truly made us feel amazing! It stayed in place all night and looked just as good by the end after a lot of dancing!

    Phoebe was an absolute joy to be around on the wedding morning, she fitted in perfectly and was calm and professional throughout, it was lovely to have her there. I would highly recommend Phoebe!

    Phoebe is incredible at what she does. From the video call, to the trial to my actual wedding morning, she was out of this world! This gorgeous girl has got insane skills!!! For someone who isn’t girly of wears any makeup ordinarily, she made me feel absolutely stunning 🤩 Thank you so much for making me cool, calm and collected! I loved every second of it! I couldn’t recommend you enough! 💗 And my sister simply adored hers and I think you could tell that from her tears! 🥰
