Claire was absolutely brilliant. She listened to what style I wanted and delivered exactly that. It was so hectic in the weeks leading up to my wedding that I didn't have time to arrange a trial, which put a lot of pressure on Claire getting it right first time. But I don't think i've ever been happier with my makeup. It actually exceeded my expectations. One of the best wedding decisions I made was asking Claire to do my makeup. Thank you Claire.

I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to Claire for doing such an incredible job on my wedding day. Not only did she do my make up but also my six bridesmaids and my mum for which she offered an express make up deal, where they do the base and she does the rest, which was perfect! And made it much more affordable!
Claire was friendly, helpful and professional from start to finish and uses high-end products which were perfect for my sensitive skin. I went to her house for my trial and was instantly put at ease. We discussed my general day to day make up style for her to see what kind of make up girl I was and how much or little I was comfortable with. We then went into detail discussing what I wanted for the big day, talking about the venue and general style of my wedding. Together we came up with the perfect autumnal look! On the day she arrived promptly and was a joy to have around. A brilliant quote from the morning was one of my bridesmaid who said ‘your make up looks like a real life instagram filter!’.
One of my biggest concerns before my wedding was whether my make up would last all day and night. On a day to day basis I don’t feel like make up stays on my face very easily and I always find myself having to do several touch ups. Actually on the wedding day I was so engrossed in the whole day that I didn’t actually think about it once. However when I did eventually look in a mirror at about 11pm I was completely shocked. Apart from my lipstick (a lot of champagne was drunk!), my make up still looked flawless! Right then and there I thought ’Claire is a genius!’.
Ladies please don’t hesitate to book, you won’t be disappointed!

Thanks so much for doing the make-up for my wedding - you were so wonderful, calm and professional, and lovely with Isabelle (the flower girl) too.
- Helen (Bride)
A massive thank you from me for making me look my best for my big day. Looking at the before and after photos its clear what a great job you did! I felt my best all day, the make-up didn’t budge, and looks great in the photos.
You captured my ‘natural, classic and pretty’ brief really well. You have been great to deal with from my first enquiry, through the trial which really put me at my ease, to the slightly stressful big day. I would thoroughly recommend you to anyone and everyone, and I’m desperately trying to think of what big events I have coming up where I can make an excuse to get you to do my make-up again!

Claire was the most amazing make up artist I could have asked for to help me on my wedding day. I was unsure what to expect to begin with, but after a trial I was 100% sure that Claire was the perfect person to do my make up. She was friendly, funny and professional and very good value for money.
I was concerned about looking too made up by having my make up done but she did it just perfectly. She listened to what I wanted and made adjustments to suit. My 3 bridesmaids and mum had their make up done and they were amazed at how fantastic is was and how well it lasted.
I would recommend Claire to anyone looking for a very professional look for a very good price. Also, you get to have an extra friendly face on your special day, whatever it is.

Claire did the makeup of my whole bridal party - me, my Mom and my four bridesmaids. She did I wonderful job, really listening to what we all wanted.
I had two trials, one that was very early, about 8 months before my wedding, and one about 8 weeks before to accommodate my bridal party. This was nice as I felt I got to know Claire.
I went for a glamorous look with hints of gold to match my colour scheme. Claire did a fantastic job that surpassed any of the pictures I showed her. My bridesmaids all looked great with makeup that suited them but also that suited the theme of the wedding and that looked good together. My Mom also looked fantastic with a makeup look that suited her skin.
Claire used high-end products and was happy to discuss and share what she used. This was great as my sister has very sensitive skin and discovered Nars suited her.
Would definitely recommend Claire for anyone looking for a bridal MUA!

Claire is such an amazing makeup artist, I absolutely loved my wedding makeup. My bridesmaids were also very happy with theirs too. I would highly recommend Claire to any bride wishing to looking beautiful and natural for their big day.
- Claire (Bride)
I was so pleased with my make up on my special day! Claire created the look I wanted and I felt beautiful. Having a trial beforehand made me feel confident and it was one less thing to worry about as the wedding". approached.
- Leanne (Bride)
Claire was fabulous. She put me at ease right from the moment I met her for my trial. A really calm and down to earth person. She was great on the wedding morning, especially when I realised everyone had already gone and there was no-one left to help put on my dress!
My make-up lasted all day and night and it felt amazing, as if I wasn't even wearing any. I had no worries over touch-ups at all. She also did a fantastic job with my 4 teenage bridesmaids and matron of honour. The former who were keen to be 'made-up' but due to their age I didn't want them to look older than they are.
Thank you Claire, we would recommend you whole-heartedly.
- Becky (Bride)
I just wanted to say how wonderful the makeup was for the wedding, my lipstick was a smash-hit and very long lasting. Thank you so much again, you are truly amazing!
- Lauren (Bride)
I had Claire do my Make up for my wedding a couple weeks ago and can say how pleased I was with her and the make-up, she was amazing! My make up was exactly what I wanted and it lasted all night with no need for touch ups apart from a bit of lip stick in the evening. I was also so pleased with my eyelashes she did for me, they were so comfertable and even lasted a couple days after the wedding!! She was also a lovely person and made me feel more relaxed and at ease on the day, was so glad she was there amongst the chaos that was going on. She also didn't let me leave my trial untill I was 100% happy with what she had done which I was so pleased about as There was parts of planning my wedding I was unsure and nervous about.
My mum also had her make up done and loved it. She doesn't have her make up done very often and was so pleased with how natural and comfortable she felt.
Thank you so much Claire :) would definitely recommend!! Xx.

I am so glad I found Claire to do my wedding makeup!! I don't normally wear much makeup and hate the 'heavy' look, so I was a bit apprehensive about having it done professionally…until I met Claire at my trial. She listened to everything my Mom and I wanted, was so patient and created such a natural look for both of us. I loved the fact that I still looked like me, just a much more enhanced version! My Mom isn't much of a makeup fan and even she didn't want to take it off after!
Claire was always so lovely and friendly to deal with and was fab to have around on the wedding morning…even making sure we had all the right music! The makeup she did for me, my Mom and my bridesmaids looked amazing and lasted all day long. We had so many lovely comments! She stayed with us until we left for the ceremony to make sure we were completely happy and topped up our lippy at the last moment. I've already recommended her to several people.. I just hope I can find another excuse for her to do my makeup again!!
Thank you so much Claire! Xx.

What can I say, I never imagined what a difference having professional make up done, would make to my day, but even after my initial trial I was totally blown over on my whole look and 'make over'. Claire is a fantastic makeup artist, and a really lovely lady that is so friendly and makes you feel so relaxed and at ease. Claire worked wonders to make me look and feel so glam on my wedding day. The makeup lasted the whole day long and looked just as flawless and natural at the end of the day as it did at the start. I opted for more glamours eyes and lashes for a bit of a wow factor and all of our guests commented on how lovely the makeup was and how much my eyes stood out. I would highly recommend Claire and hope I can find another occasion when Claire can do my makeup for me again.

Claire recently did the makeup for my Wedding along with my 3 bridesmaids and mother. She was an absolute pleasure to work with; she listened to what I wanted, was a calming influence on all of us and made suggestions when needed.
She did a fantastic job. All of the makeup looked flawless and lasted all day and night long! The 'what to expect' guide she sent to my bridesmaids was a really lovely and personal touch.
I would recommend Claire in an instant and hope to have her beautify me again in the future.
