  • Nicola did a brilliant job of mine and my bridesmaids make up. From the initial booking, the trials and then the actual wedding day she made the whole process so easy and stress free. I received so many compliments on the day and would really recommend her.

  • Nicola was absolutely brilliant, couldn’t wish for a better person to do my hair and make up.She went above and beyond to help me with my hair style on the day.I recommend her very highly, as all my guests made so many comments about the way I look (all very positive)…..

  • Nicola was great - understood what I wanted and was very friendly and helpful.

  • Nicola was great! Easy to talk to and made us all feel very comfortable on the morning and myself at the make up trial. All four of us loved our makeup, even my Mum who never wears mmakeupand looked stunning!

    Would highly recommend to everyone.

  • Just got back from our Honeymoon so I wanted to say a massive thank you for everything - from my make up to my bridesmaids' hair/makeup and all your help and tips (and not forgetting all the trials haha).

    Probably not the easiest-going bride in the world in terms of demands lol and all my eyeliner needs, but you were such a great help and you made us all look really great - you were a calming presence to my nervousness in the morning and I am so glad I didn't decide to do my own make up myself ? - it looked so nice the entire day. I really loved the lipstick especially, are there any shades you could recommend that are close to it as I know you mixed different ones?

    Finally, I know it probably wasn't easy as I have so many specific requirements, so can't thank you enough for your time and patience ... as I'm sure you know, you're really great at what you do and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

    It was incredibly nice to meet you and I really hope that everything goes well for your wedding (it really does go incredibly fast but genuinely the most amazing day!).

  • Nicola was incredibly friendly and approachable and the make up application on the day was spot on. - Kerry, July 2018

  • Lovely artist, superb work, super friendly

  • I just wanted to say a huge thank you for putting me in contact with my two fab make-up and hair artists for my wedding day on April 12th. Both Nicola and Moira are super-talented, lovely people who were a pleasure to have with me on the morning of my wedding and made me look and feel my absolute best.

    So thank you very much and keep doing what you do!
