  • Rachael was amazing and knew how to bring out mine and my bridesmaids best features. We were all so happy! Cannot recommend enough. Makeup stayed put all day and looked flawless. Thank you!

  • Honestly cannot thank Rachael enough for her hard work and everything she did. It was perfect and I have recommended her for my friends who are getting marrried next year too. Cannot rate her enough and if it was possible would score her a 10. She was perfect with everyone so warm me welcoming and accommodating for everyone. Thank you so much again

  • Rachael was excellent very helpful and listened to what style I was looking for as well as offering me their guidance and advice. Would definitely recommend her!

  • The communication I had from my first enquiry email was excellent. Really efficient and easy to deal with.
    I was over the moon with Rachael, she was so lovely and not only made me beautiful for my wedding but she was incredibly patient and calm on the day. Thank you so much

  • Absolutely delighted. I'm not a particularly 'girlie girl' and never imagined I'd feel like a princess on the day, but I did. The trial was great, but we changed quite a bit on the actual day (vampy to more pretty) at my request, and Rachel totally delivered. Also completely comfortable with her being one of the gang getting ready with my girlfriends and mum and hairdresser on the day. Could not recommend more highly.

  • Rachael is an incredible make-up artist - she completely understood how I wanted to look and she gave me all the confidence I needed to feel beautiful and looking my best on this most important of days - if you are in the Birmingham Area I would thoroughly recommend asking for Rachael - you won't be disappointed. Thank you, Rachael xxx

  • Rachael did all of our makeup just how we wanted it, everyone loved their looks and felt amazing in the makeup created. I could not recommend her enough!

  • One of my bridesmaids announced on the day that she didn’t want any help with her hair or makeup. Both Rachael and Dominique dealt with this brilliantly and, by keeping her involved in the conversation they were able to build a relationship of trust which led her to ask for both of their help.

  • I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for Sunday. You were so calm and kind. I couldn’t believe how smoothly the morning went with everything being completely on time! I didn’t have to worry about a thing, even when mum was very nervous. On top of that you made me feel so beautiful! So big thanks and here’s a few photos from the day I promised. Let me know if you’d like to see the professional ones once they come!

  • Rachael was fantastic! Thank you! She is very talented and was lovely to be around on the day. The make-up was perfect and she listened to what we wanted and adapted to using my make-up for me due to my allergies with many make-up products. I will definitely recommend Rachael to any new brides.
