Christiane provided the best service and experience throughout my makeup session. She was very attentive to my needs and made sure the products that were being used were suitable for my sensitive skin. The look created was incredible and I will definitely be recommending Christine to my friends and family!
Gina Stocchetti

I was attending a t-girl event in Crawley and wanted to have my makeup professionally applied so I looked on the web and found Christiane’s site. After looking at her wonderful site it was obvious that I should book an appointment. Her professionalism and attitude towards the Covid crisis was excellent and made sure that myself and her were totally protected with hand sanitisation on arrival and PPE in use during the makeover. Her friendly and open character put me totally at ease as soon as I arrived and she was very happy to answer all of my boring questions about makeup and beauty as she worked her magic on me. The finished result was absolutely superb and I have never had my makeup applied so wonderfully. I will definitely be looking into going back to see Christiane once the Covid crisis is over and have a makeup lesson so I can try to apply it myself.
I will be recommending her to all of my friends.

Regina Newlands

I had a fantastic 1-2-1 make up lesson with Christiane! She was so welcoming and professional. She took time to talk me through each step in great detail, giving me lots of advice and recommendations. I learnt so much and love the fact that Christiane gave me a step by step guide to take away as a reminder plus a list of all the beautiful products she used on me during my lesson. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Christiane, she is wonderful!

Kirsty Smith

I had a 1-2-1 make up lesson with Christiane it as amazing. I wanted to improve how I applied my make up and understand what products work for me.
Christiane is extremely experienced and explained everything step by step I loved the finished look and can’t wait to start practicing.
I would highly recommend a lesson with Christiane she made me feel comfortable and relaxed and I got what I wanted from the session.

I had a wonderful experience on Saturday with Christiane. It was the first lesson I ever had. I’ve learnt so much from her. The products she used were all high end brand . I had so many compliments. All I can say is she ‘s a brilliant and amazing artist. I highly recommend Christiane.

Tati Potter
Had my make up class with Christiane today and it was fantastic. She was really friendly and professional – everything was very safe and clean too due to Covid-19 which was great!
I have 0 experience with make up and Christiane was very patient and taught me step by step on how to apply my make up. I also loved that we get an information pack after which tells you the products that we used in the make up class and instructions on how to apply make up in case we forget! Thanks for making me feel beautiful!! 😃 100% recommend!
Sarah Choa

What a kind, professional, skilled lady! I had a 1-2-1 makeup lesson including lashes with Christiane three days ago. She went over the basics for me then we did a step by step “how to” for an elegant evening look. It was a lovely afternoon and I had a great time. I feel confident with what I’ve learnt and I’m very satisfied! Thank you!

Rachel Small

I had a really good make-up lesson with Christiane. She was very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher! She asked me lots of questions to gauge what I would like and I was really impressed with the final result! I feel so much more confident using make up now and also have more confidence in buying make-up too! I highly recommend using Christiane! She is fantastic!

Emma Goode

What a wonderful experience. Christiane is very patient, professional and informative. I had been meaning to get a makeup lesson booked for a while and didn’t realise I was lucky enough to have such a talented lady on my doorstep. She also made me feel very safe in this current COVID environment. I would freely recommend Christiane to anyone. She made me feel and look amazing and I cannot wait to order some new make up and brushes and start practising the look.

Sharon Fuller

Had a make up lesson and was really pleased. Was very friendly and professional. The lesson was lovely and relaxed. Very informative and was given an information pack to take home with me. Would definitely recommend.

Laura Wilson

Completely in line with the CV19 procedures and felt very safe and clean. Christiane was super friendly and quick to respond to initial query. Great selection of nail colours and did a beautiful job on my nails. Very reasonable for the quality and experience.

Sarah Smith
Sandhurst, Berkshire

Had an amazing experience with Christiane yesterday. I had no idea how to do make up properly, especially my eye make up so thought that should change! Christiane made me feel very comfortable, she explained everything really well with step by step instructions. I was super pleased with the results! I went home and practised on my sister, was 100% better! Thank you Christiane! X

Karen Birchall

Had a prom makeup trial done today and it was amazing! I wasn’t really sure what kind of look I wanted when I went but Christiane really knew what she was doing and created a beautiful look, that was amazing and she made me look so good!! I’m so happy I picked her to do my prom makeup and am excited for her to do it on the day :)))

Gemma Heyhoe

Christiane created a beautiful look for me recently for my Niece’s wedding as well as for my Niece, the Bride, on the day too. The look was appropriate for my age (52) yet striking and elegant, I had many compliments on the day. I would thoroughly recommend Christiane to do make up for all ages and events. Very creative and knowledgeable artist.

Deborah Nicholson

As a slightly more mature lady I finally built up the courage to book a make up lesson.
What can I say …… this young lady certainly knows hers stuff ! I was transformed! Initially I wasn’t sure that we were heading in the right direction but as one would say Rome was not built in a day. I carried on with my lesson and by the end I realized that I absolutely needed help with my make up as I had got into a routine over the years that meant I used the same stuff day in day out. By the time I left my 2 hour make up lesson I had learnt so much about how to apply and what to use. I would highly recommend a lesson if you want to look and to be honest feel younger!!!! Thank you so much for all your help and tips I will embrace my new way of applying my make up 👍

Deborah Bradbury

Christiane fitted me for an appointment without like ten mins notice of me messaging her! I’ve used a lot of makeup artists but Christiane did mine absolutely perfect! Lovely girl too xx Thank you!

Aimee Townley

I was so pleased with my make up. Christiane made me feel welcome and helped with my choices for eyeshadow etc. I had compliments all night and have recommended Christiane to friends I can’t wait to book for the next special occasion.

Marie Mason

Had the most amazing experience having a 1 to 1 makeup lesson today. Christiane makes you feel really relaxed and at ease as well as being great at what she does. I am a trans women so never tried makeup yet. Christiane broke it all down and made it easy to understand. 100% recommend her!

Hannah Wild

My make up for my 50th birthday was amazing, Christiane did a try out a few weeks ago and then expertly redid on the day of the event. It is a very professional set up and Christiane is very patient and really listens to what you want or in my case good with suggestions . I would thoroughly recommend Christiane and will certainly use her talents again in the future.

Erika Bazler

Lovely lady! Very skilled in her job!

Andrea Belcher

To All Crossdressers, Transpeople or Guys who simply want to express their Femininity occasionally,Christiane is undoubtedly the Lovely Person to visit for Expert M/U advice+help😀! Me personally, I Love to be Realistically Made Up but always aim to Look Like a Woman wearing a Full On Look!! Due to practical reasons I’m having to wind it all down, so recently I paid Christiane a visit for “hopefully” a makeover to remember!! Well,from the bottom of my heart She didn’t disappoint!! I wasn’t really Nervous on Arrival,but I was apprehensive with a Tummy Full of Butterflies! Christiane made me totally at Ease+calmly told me I wasn’t harming anybody so ENJOY!! And I duly DID! I’ve still got a tear in my eye now-what an Amazing Human Being she is+putting that briefly put to one side”A M/U Artist 2nd to None!!” I could easily write a List of Words of Praising Christiane, CLASS is definitely One of the Them😀!! She makes a Lovely Cuppa too!


Christiane is absolutely amazing at what she does, very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend and will definitely be using her again.

On Friday Christiane did mine and two others makeup for a Ball we travelled down to Camberley for and I could not recommend her enough. For myself who doesn’t really wear much makeup but she made me feel amazing, she provided a lovely relaxing environment. Her studio is amazing, I was really impressed with my makeup look and the whole experience, she made me feel comfortable and welcomed.
If I have another event near Camberley I would have my makeup done again, thank you Christiane x

Kirsty Harris
Amanda has had many makeovers over the years! I’m very critical of my look, persona, presentation! Christiane taught me so much. She understood my needs and requirements. Loved the one to one lesson. I loved the look created! I left feeling a million dollars totally empowered. Christiane is a very talented make up artist.

Absolutely amazing!! I bought my daughter a make up lesson with Christiane and I honestly can not recommend her highly enough, her studio is beautiful, she has a huge selection of high quality products, and her knowledge is fantastic, but moreover her delivery of the lesson was outstanding, asking my daughter at each stage if she had any questions, giving her choices and so forth, I am so impressed that I am going to book a lesson myself, I am so grateful we found you Christiane we will always book with you now for special occasions, thank you Christiane you made us feel so comfortable and welcome we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! My daughter’s make up was fabulous! For anybody who is a little bit nervous about going along, rest assured Christiane will instantly set you at ease! We even enjoyed the Christmas music! Thank you so so much.

Lisa Mantel

Christiane is so talented, I have booked with her once before for a black tie event and have just booked my second appointment. You leave feeling a million bucks! The products used were all gorgeous, if there is anything she doesn’t have it is not worth having. 100% would recommend.

Francesca Vickery

Wow – what a find! Christiane was responsible for my bridal party’s make-up in November this year. She worked her magic on various bridesmaids aged between, 17-41. Christiane is incredibly talented and bang on trend. She is very easy to talk to and work with, all of us felt completely at ease during the whole experience. We all had different ideas of what look we wanted to achieve and Christiane managed to ensure we were all left feeling a million dollars! I wish I could give this review more than 5 stars! If you are lucky enough to secure her for your big day or any other occasion, you will not be disappointed!

Jan Fairchild

I am so thankful I chose Christiane to do my makeup! Firstly, her customer service is the best I have ever received. The event I was going to had changed their time and Christiane was able to accommodate me and fit me in earlier which I was so grateful for as I was feeling very self conscious about the event and really wanted my makeup done.

Secondly, the work she did was incredible! She worked with me to get the look I was after and used products on my face which really worked for my skin and left it feeling glowy and healthy! I have never felt as amazing as I did that night and to go from feeling self conscious to confident I think speaks volumes of how talented Christiane is! I cannot wait until I book my next appointment with her as I’m excited to see what we will achieve next time! 10/10 best makeup artist ever!

Alicia Hughes

I had Christiane do my wedding make-up. She was absolutely AMAZING. The results was brilliant and everything I wanted and more. She also did my bridesmaid make up and my mum. My mum is very fussy with her make up and won’t normally let anyone do her make up, however she loved her results and will not be using anyone else from now on. Christiane thank you so much for being a part of my special day and helping us all look stunning.

Nanda Atherton
I wanted to dress up for Halloween as my 14 year old had invited friends over for a party and we often get trick or treaters at the door too. Christiane was amazing and so professional, meticulous to a tee and many of my friends actually thought I was Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. I would thoroughly recommend her and hope to use her services again in the very near future!
Nikki Subhan
I am Fiona, a T-girl who visited Christiane for the first time in Nov. The whole experience was private, relaxed and just easy. Christiane is a perfectionist and this comes through in her work. So glamorous, I walked out feeling like a model!

Bless you Christiane – best makeover ever – bar none! Thank you! I went shopping at Richmond – no one gave me a 2nd look. Tried on a few beautiful dresses! Went for a drink in a pub(!)…and a local posh hotel!!?? Such was the confidence your makeover presented! I got to the party on time as well, lovely, casual and very mixed audience; each with lovely comments for me (ahh such a delight) – I am still dreaming. So thank you thank you xxx


I had a 1-2-1 make up lesson with Christiane and for somebody so young she was so professional and knowledgeable she really is so talented! Her make up skills and teaching were fantastic and even months afterwards she will still answer any make up questions I have and is so helpful and friendly!! I can’t recommend her enough! Christiane you are an inspiration! Keep doing what you’re doing!!

Donna Scott

Hi, my name is Billie.

I have been having a bit of a challenging time in my life, so, I wanted to do something to make myself feel really good about myself again. I decided that a new day time makeup regime would be a good place to start, so with some help from Google I trusted my intuition and I was blessed to have found Christiane Dowling Makeup Artistry.
I have spent some time with her today for a 1:2:1 session, without doubt it was the best couple of hours I have had since, well, my memory fails. As an older person and Trans woman I was made to feel so welcome and comfortable throughout the session.
Christiane provided very clear information about every stage and detailed information about each product and how to use properly, with a written summary at the end of the session as an aide memoire, bless my memory.
I was rather nervous when she asked if I would like some photos at the end of the session as I have a difficult relationship with photos of me, lol. I was so so pleased and surprised at the results, I looked fab, wow, it made me feel like a million dollars, thanks to Christiane who so made my day.
I can’t recommend highly enough, in, investing the time and money for a 1:2;1 session with Christiane, go on, you so deserve it. x

Billie Reynolds

Was able to have my graduation make up done by Christiane and she made me look amazing! Amazing experience and made me feel really comfortable and trust her! X

Alice Woodman

Christiane did such an fantastic job with my makeup for a work function, and I felt amazing and so much more confident because of it! Several of my colleagues complimented my makeup, even males! I had my appointment early afternoon, and it lasted (eyelashes and all) throughout the afternoon, evening, and into the early hours without budging! I cannot recommend Christiane enough! 😀

Faye Macis

Christiane was exceptionally professional, from my first contact booking a trial all the way through to completing my makeup on the day. She really listened to me and how I wanted to look on my big day and turned my dream into a reality. I cannot thank her enough and would recommend her to any bride to do their makeup.

Natalie McNab
Thank you so much for your help. It’s amazing and has made such a difference. I can’t say how much I appreciate your work – truly amazing! I certainly will be back again. You are a true professional, and made me feel at home.Totally awesome, you are indeed talented.

Christiane did mine and my mum’s makeup for a special occasion yesterday, she was absolutely amazing!! Very professional from start to finish! We both loved our makeup and had lots of comments throughout the day💘 highly recommend

Sophie Elwick

Flawless, best make up I’ve had x

Aimée Dunks

Christiane did my wedding make up, I couldn’t of been happier with the results, very professional, organised and a fantastic make-up artist. Will definitely be using Christiane again in the future. Would highly recommend!

Hayley Tulett

Christiane did mine, my mum’s and two of my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding on the 29th August, she did an absolutely amazing job. Christiane was very professional right from the first communication. At my trial she made me feel so comfortable and nothing was too much trouble, I didn’t really have any idea what style I wanted, and Christiane just went with it and I loved it so much. Christiane arrived super early on the wedding morning and took her time with each one of us, making sure everyone had exactly the look they wanted. I felt absolutely amazing all day long on my wedding day and I know my mum and bridesmaids did too. My makeup lasted all day and beyond and I didn’t need to touch up once. I fell asleep in my makeup, which I never usually do, but I woke up the next morning and my makeup was still perfect.
Christiane was absolutely amazing from start to finish, right from the moment I got in touch with her. She was always happy to answer my (sometimes silly) questions and made me feel at ease.
I would highly recommend Christiane, and I will certainly be returning for future special occasions.

Wheres the 100000 stars button?! Christiane did makeup for me, my mum, grandma & Maid of Honour for my wedding on Friday 30th August & she did a beyond incredible job! We all had loads of compliments throughout the day & was still looking just as amazing at the end of the day as it was in the beginning. So much so we didn’t want to take it off! 🥰 Loved my trial so much that I quickly got booked in for my hen party too! Our experience with the lovely Christiane has been completely faultless from start to finish & I’m desperately searching for an occasion to go to her again! ☺️ Thank you so much for making my day extra special xxxx

From the moment I contacted Christiane she was very keen to know our make up likes and see photos of our usual looks, she is extremely helpful and professional and strives to achieve perfection and also a look that her clients are 100% happy with. Nothing was ever too much trouble and she asks you at different stages if you like what’s been done so far . My daughters and I were very impressed with Christiane- the make up stayed put all day and night and received compliments on all our looks!

Michelle Wellsteed

Christiane did my makeup for my daughters wedding in August this year and I was delighted with her work. So much so I booked a makeup lesson with Christiane which I had today. Christiane talks you through step by step and makes sure you have mastered the application before moving on to the next step. Christiane is calm informative and very helpful offering me to contact her for advice following the makeup lesson if I get stuck. I highly recommend Christiane for wedding and special occasion makeup.

Jan Peace

I loved my make-up lesson with Christiane! Despite wearing make-up for years, I still learnt so much. Christiane was very welcoming, involved me in all decisions about the products used and made sure I was happy with everything. I’d definitely recommend and look forward to returning 😊

Victoria Boyes

I had a 1 to 1 makeup lesson with Christiane today and really enjoyed it. Learnt lots of tips and Christiane has even offered to be on hand with any questions after. Thank you for such a great few hours!

Becci Uden

I’m so happy that I found and chose Christiane as my wedding make up artist. She’s so talented and sweet. Not only she made me look stunning for my wedding day but she also listened to my personal preferences and made sure to implement them in the finished look. I’m really grateful and I highly recommend her to anyone that just wants to feel extra beautiful whatever the occasion is.

Anita Wiatr-Noireaud

Make up session and Prom make up for my daughter.

Christiane had the best communication style both in emails prior to bookings and face to face. The information she provided on her website, in her emails during and after the session was brilliant. Booking was a breeze.

Christiane makes anyone instantly at ease. She is very easy to speak with. She is extremely talented and really take the client’s style and thoughts into her work. My daughter’s Prom make up was understated yet beautiful, just as she had wanted. It was absolutely right for the dress and overall look. The make up used was of the best quality and lasted throughout the evening, throughout Prom and beyond, and looked brilliant without the need to reapply.

Christiane is clearly extremely knowledgeable and talented yet she comes across as very down to earth.

Booking a make up lesson or a special occasion make up with Christiane in my view, is an excellent investment and would make a fantastic gift that would be sure to please.

I cannot recommend her enough! Quality experience and customer service throughout from a brilliantly talented make up artist and genuinely lovely person.

Tanya O

This weekend was the second time I have used Christiane for make up. Once for a wedding a few months ago, and this bank holiday weekend for a festival. Her make up is flawless, and lasts really well. My husband said it was the best make up I have had done and I have been to several other local make up artists. Three of my friends also went to Christiane for make up the same morning and were very impressed. Thank you Christiane.

Jessy Blackler

Amazing makeup that lasted all day! Received lots of compliments 🙂 will definitely be back x

Emily Moore

I had a fantastic makeup lesson with Christiane. It was the first lesson I’ve ever had and I just wish I had done it sooner as I have never looked better! I’d really recommend going to see Christiane if you want some new ideas, a refresh or just to see how amazing you can look with the right makeup and good techniques.

Natalie Sykes

I am a mature transwoman who is making tentative steps into my new identity. I was scared about going to a make-up session but Christiane is an exceptionally talented make-up artist whose professionalism and warmth put me at ease right from the moment I entered her studio. It was a lot of fun; I learned loads and I’m excited to practise what I was taught. I’d like to unequivocally recommend Christiane to anyone, cis or trans.


Christiane was lovely & friendly. She nailed exactly the look I wanted for my hen do. Would definitely recommend using Christiane!

Cassie Polden
Christiane – Thank you so much for the wonderful make-up lesson today. As a transgender person I was obviously nervous but you were so welcoming and I felt so much at ease with you. And of course the lesson was amazing and I learned so much – no wonder you’ve got so many awards and accolades. If I can recreate even half of what you showed me, my make-up will be sensational. I will recommend you to absolutely everyone I can.

My sister and I went to Christiane for occasion make up and were so happy with her work. She is a very talented make up artist and also a lovey person. We will definitely be going back to her!

Georgia Raftery

Christiane did a fantastic job on my makeup for my leavers ball – she created the exact look I wanted and listened to what I had to say, will definitely be using her again!!

Grace Creswell

I went to Christiane for a Make up lesson she was very professional warm and welcoming when I arrived.
I was able to change in the studio prior to the lesson and and felt totally relaxed when we started. Christiane talked me through all the techniques to create a very natural and as she put it at the end of the lesson “Soft Glam” look .
The lesson was really informative and did not feel rushed at all even though the two hours seemed to fly by.
I can highly recommend Christiane if you are thinking of booking a lesson do it now, you will not be disappointed!


This young lady is incredibly talented. Not only that, she shows a maturity that immediately puts you at ease. My sister and I both had a lesson and I was bowled over by the results. Christiane was polite, knowledgeable and answered all our queries. Her work is outstanding and I am sure she will go far in her career 😁. Brilliant few hours spent with a professional.

Dawn Harrower

A great prom make up for my daughter Chelsey last week – looked fab. I would recommend Christiane for any special occasion make-up session!

Louise Gostling

I was recommended Christiane to do my makeup for a close friends wedding. I went with a few ideas of what I wanted but was unsure on colours and all the options involved, Christiane was SO helpful with helping me and the makeup turned out amazing! I got compliments throughout the day and felt glam but natural which is exactly what I wanted.
Thank you for being so lovely and doing my makeup for me :).

Emma Hewinson

Christiane did my makeup for a wedding and she did a fantastic job! She really listened and understood well what look I wanted to go for and yet was able to make recommendations when I wasn’t too sure about something. Christiane is professional and uses high-end products; she’s very knowledgeable and lovely to talk to, I felt really comfortable in her studio. And got great comments for my makeup at the wedding. Thanks again!

Marion Reiter

My daughter and I had a make up lesson with Christiane a few weeks ago as a birthday present. I wanted to teach my daughter how to properly apply makeup and have an understanding of what products to use.
Christiane was very patient and took us both through what to do step by step, answering all our questions and we both learned so much. Our biggest learning was how to do eyes
She was super helpful before, during and after the day and my daughter has been regularly practicing her new found skills on herself and anyone else willing to be her model.
Thank you Christiane for a great experience and for nurturing a new hobby in such a lovely way.

Cathrine Nicholas

Christiane did my makeup for a night out. I went with an idea of what I wanted and she made it come to life and it looked better than I could imagine. Confidence was at a whole other level. Thank you so much!

Stacey Whitlam
To all you fellow X-dressers, TVs or TGs, do not hesitate for one millisecond when making your decision to be brave and try a professional make-over, to pick up the phone or send an email to Christiane and make a booking with her.
She is a country mile ahead of all the other lovely ladies who have previously done my make-up.
She is so calm and professional, personable and organised and will, within an hour, make you look absolutely stunning, like a million dollars and put a huge disbelieving smile on your face as you look in the mirror and say…”Oh my God, she looks drop-dead gorgeous!

Christiane did the makeup for myself and my bridal party on the 24/05/19 and I cannot recommend her enough. She listened to what everyone wanted and made sure everyone was happy and felt comfortable. Me and two of my bridesmaids had a trial beforehand which was also great and allowed me to be 100% sure of what I wanted on the day. She is super friendly which made the whole morning a lot more relaxed. All of the bridal party had comments on how beautiful their make up was and it lasted all day and night (even with a lot of dancing). I cannot thank her enough! 🙂

Jade Waring
Eastleigh, Hampshire

Christiane did my wedding makeup and also the makeup for my 5 bridesmaids a few weeks ago. Having been let down by another makeup artist, I contacted Christiane and I’m so glad that she was able to help out! From her first email right through to the big day, Christiane kept me informed so I wasn’t at all worried out about how things would go on the day. She listened to what I wanted and also offered great advice. Her makeup artistry skills speak for themselves!! We were all so thrilled on the day and had lots of lovely compliments. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!

Rebecca Birkett
West Horsham

Christiane did my bridesmaid make up a couple of weeks ago and I was more than thrilled with the results! She asked exactly what I wanted and ensured I got the covers she and colours that worked best for me. I had so many compliments on my make up on the day and my make up lasted until early hours of the next morning! I will definitely be using Christiane again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a make up artist. Thank you so much!

Vanessa Brown

Really enjoyed my make up lesson with Christiane, she was really kind and helpful and made me feel completely at ease, absolutely recommend the experience!!


I purchased a makeup lesson for my grandaughter’s 13th birthday. She was very excited and really enjoyed it. Christiane made us very welcome and was lovely to Keira. She explained every step of the makeup application and the finished result was stunning. I cannot recommend Christiane highly enough and I have already promised my 11 year old grandaughter a makeup lesson for her 13th. Thank you so much Christiane.


I am a bit of a novice with make up so I had a 1:1 lesson. Christiane made me feel very relaxed and I was very happy with the way I looked at the end! Christiane went through each product that was being used and we went through the process step by step.
Highly recommend!!

Samantha Aspey

Christiane is an amazing makeup artist, as a trans person I can’t recommend her highly enough, her makeup helped to give me confidence to look lady like and not look like a drag artist. I’d recommend her to other Trans people looking for makeup advice and make overs.

Annita Martin

Christiane done my make up for my birthday! Was absolutely amazing ? couldn’t of been any happier with the results, very polite lady! Would definitely recommend x

Courtney Truscott

Christiane couldn’t have done a more amazing job! She picked out the colours and products perfectly suited to me, she is incredibly skilled and professional. Would 100% recommend!

Christiane Dowling is a very talented make up artist and a natural born teacher. She taught me how to do my own bridal make up, gave me amazing tips and wrote it all down for me which was very useful.

Maria Guzman

I absolutely loved my make up done by Christiane last night! Had so many compliments. She used colours I wouldn’t normally go for and they looked so nice. Would highly recommend. Thank you! X

Louise Canavan

Amazing I would highly recommend Christiane such a lovely and talented women!!!!

Chiyan Welsh

Great studio with SO much choice of make up! Christiane is so lovely and explains everything she is doing. I had a make up lesson as I was stuck in a rut and not really knowing what I needed to do to update my look. I had a great 2 hours and, as a woman in her early 50’s, came away looking and feeling great and with a whole host of tips to help me. I would highly recommend Christiane as a professional, friendly and skilled makeup artist.

Cindy Wrapson

Christiane did a fantastic job with my makeup prior to having a Corporate Headshot. Perfectly applied, it was exactly the look I had asked for to give a polished, daytime look that wouldn’t fade away under the strong camera lights. I thought it looked great when Christiane had finished, but when I saw the results in the photo’s I was amazed. I would have never been able to achieve that myself, although Christiane has inspired me and I am going to be booking again for a make up lesson.

Glynis Radcliffe

I can’t recommend Christiane enough. She really listed to my preferences, made me feel really relaxed. I loved my make up and felt really confident in my own skin. Will definitely be booking again 🙂

Victoria Szebesta

My sister and I had a lovely make-up lesson with Christiane today. Learned so much and left feeling confident that I can reproduce the look myself in the future. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Elaine Sibley

Christiane did my makeup yesterday for my birthday and I absolutely loved it! My makeup was perfect – not a thing that I didn’t like or would’ve changed. Really friendly and easy to chat to which is great. Christiane uses high end products and has an extensive range of eyelashes to choose from which is perfect. I’ll definitely be asking Christiane to do my makeup for future events. Had I not already arranged my bridal makeup a long time ago, I would definitely have considered Christiane to do this!

Harriet Stilwell

Had a make up lesson with Christiane. Learnt so much (especially about where I’m going wrong) and most importantly actually found all the products that suit me. When you go to a store, a sales person will try sell you only their brand for sales targets, whereas with Christiane, she advises you from multiple brands based on YOU!!!!! Not only that, but my makeup looked amazing after and I got so many compliments. Definitely want to go back for another session, maybe next time with some friends …. really enjoyed it ?

Megan Fietze

I had my first ever make up lesson with Christiane this weekend a present from my husband and I couldn’t be happy enough. Christiane is very professional and thorough and cleared all my doubts and questions, I can’t wait to apply the skills she has taught me and I must say I had many compliments on the make up she did from friends and family and even people in the town stopped to compliment me on my eye makeup that Christiane did. I would love to use her for an event soon. She is brilliant!


Richa Agarwal

Christiane was amazing. I loved my makeup. It lasted all night and I got loads of compliments. I can’t wait to use her again!

Christiane was amazing. So lovely and professional, she listened and nothing was too much trouble. Both my mum and I had never had our makeup done before and she made the whole process fun and kept us looking like us but glam. Would recommend to anyone!!

Christiane was very professional and my makeup was perfect! Exactly what I wanted and lasted all night, received so many compliments on my eye makeup. Would highly recommend.

Mary Kinsella

I had a really informative lesson from Christiane where she taught me the various steps with blending eyeshadow and contouring my face. She is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, making you feel at ease from the moment you enter her house. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!

I’d been looking for a professional makeup lesson from someone with an open attitude towards the LGBTQ+ community (specifically trans and gender diverse people) for a while, and Christiane was very welcoming and friendly.

Ash Green

Christiane is so professional, absolutely loved my make up and received many compliments, highly recommend!

Ashleigh Wallage

Christiane is a godsend! I had my make up done for a special event and was thrilled with the results. I felt a million dollars as it gave me so much confidence and I had so many compliments. The look lasted all evening and I did not even need a lipstick top up which Christiane also supplied. I can’t recommend her enough and will always use her for my make up artistry. A massive Thank you xxxx

Julie Crawford

Christiane did my daughter’s bridesmaids in July and did a fantastic job. I decided to book Christiane for a make up lesson and it was such a great experience, she not only made me feel very comfortable I loved what she taught me .
Highly recommend this lovely young lady.

Nicky Gale

After researching and contacting hundreds of make up artists for my bridal make up I came across Christiane who stood out from all of them with how professional I thought she looked. I was definitely not let down. From start to finish Christiane has made me feel special and will advise on questions I have within moments. She is completely professional with personal touches. Christiane took time to listen to mine, my mum’s and my sister’s visions on our own make up and made it become reality. She really did take time and care for all of us and went above and beyond with her service.
I really can’t recommend Christiane enough as you can clearly see she puts 100% effort in everything she does and has a clear passion for make up, not just treating you as the next client.
Thank you for helping make my day that extra special and I really hope that an occasion comes up so I can book an appointment with you again.

Nicole Crymble

Gemma Judd

Helen Collins

Christiane did my wedding makeup and what an amazing job she did! On a personal level she is just such a lovely lady, she takes into consideration exactly what was being asked and my make up couldn’t of been more perfect along with all my bridesmaids makeup! She is a little miracle worker! Thanks for sharing my special day with me, I couldn’t of been more made up (excuse the pun!) with my lovely makeup! I can’t recommend Christiane more. She is going to go a long way in her career, a very talented lady indeed.

An absolute sweetheart and an incredible make up artist. She made the wedding day easy and enjoyable and made us all very pretty!!

Christiane did the makeup for my wedding in the 8th August and it was fantastic, I could not have asked for more!
She was so patient during my trial as I decided what I wanted and she has the most amazing colour matching and all of my bridesmaids looked stunning.
She took the time to provide makeup to make each of my girls complexion.
If you want makeup that will make an impact then Christiane is your woman!!!

Regardless of age she caters for all and for all occasions.

Cannot put into words how excellent Christiane is! Always does a great job and you leave feeling amazing.

I cannot stress enough how wonderful Christiane is. She did me and my bridesmaids’ makeup and we were all amazed at her talent. My bridesmaids all did not have very precise ideas of what they wanted, but for each of them she took on board their vague suggestions and came up with perfect outcomes. I had a makeup trial so I already knew what I was having, and on the day it was amazing. We all loved our makeup! And Christiane is really lovely!

Alex Crabbe

Christiane is a lovely, friendly and professional person who puts you at ease and listens to what you want, whilst making helpful suggestions and offering great advice. I wanted help with my make up as my skin has become drier and shows the usual signs of age, with a few wrinkles and brown age spots. Christiane showed me how to apply a range of products to handle this and I left feeling a million dollars. It was wonderful. Thank you so much for your help.

Christiane was brilliant in all aspects. From the moment I contacted her until we finished the makup lesson. She is kind and polite.I felt very comfortable and welcome. She was very helpful and she took her time to explain everything I wanted to know (I had lots of questions lol). I have hooded eyes and I have never really had the right eye makeup but during the lesson I learnt so much so all I have to do now is practice. However I enjoyed it that much I will definitely go back for another lesson. Thank you very much Christiane!!!

Christiane did my makeup for my wedding and I cannot speak more highly of her. From the minute I got in touch, Christiane was professional, approachable and just so easy to talk to. I had a couple of trials as I was a little indecisive about what I wanted and she was nothing but patient. On my wedding day she was absolutely wonderful, put me at ease, talked me through and made sure I was happy with everything as she went along. She even stepped in and helped my sister out who was struggling with her eyebrows! I was so happy with my makeup on my wedding day I felt amazing and had so many compliments. I would recommend Christiane to anyone, she is so talented and just genuinely so easy to get along with. Thank you so much for making my wedding makeup perfect xxx

Samantha Langford

I was recommended Christiane by a friend and was not disappointed. It was quite clear from the start that Christiane was a total professional which put me at ease to trust her recommendations. I was absolutely thrilled with the end result and was gutted to have to take it off at the end of the evening. Friends have asked about my makeup since so I am sure she will be hearing from them as well as me in the future. Thank you Christiane x

Debbie Rakes
Forest Park

I went to Christiane to have my makeup done for a Christmas party. It is the first time I have ever had this done professionally and I chose Christiane from the reviews and pictures on her site and I was not disappointed. She is very friendly and her salon was set up very nicely, it felt very relaxed. I loved the end result, me but a glam version which is exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Christiane to anyone wanting to look good for their special occasion!

Susan Tremear

I chose to pick Christiane to do my make up after seeing all of the positive feedback on her page and I agree with every single one. Christiane is really friendly and we chatted and giggled from start to finish. I’m so nervous when it comes to my make up as I don’t always wear loads unless it’s a special occasion but what I liked most is I was asked on each section if I liked what she had done and if not what I would want differently, but I liked everything she was doing. Everyone loved my make up, including me and I will definitely be going back in the future. Thank you x

Nadine Leathley
Best Makeup Artist ever! Very professional, love it!
Wonderful professional, knows exactly what we want! Brilliant!!
Paula Pimenta

I booked Christiane to do my makeup and nails before a big night out. I don’t usually wear much make up and so turned up not really knowing what I wanted. I gave Christiane free reign to do what she thought would suit me best and she didn’t disappoint. I left feeling and looking amazing and I received compliments all night! Moreover the make up lasted through till the early hours of the morning. My Shellac Nails were done with care and precision and were long lasting. Christiane is extremely talented and I highly recommend her! I will definitely be using her again.

Steph Fernandes

I had the absolute pleasure of having Christiane doing my wedding make up for me.
From the start when I contacted her she was nothing but professional and made me feel at ease and I knew I was in safe hands.
The whole experience was fantastic down to the appointment reminders.
I went to her studio and was made to feel so welcome. Christiane listened to what I would like and would talk me through what she was doing and checking that I was happy with the look on various stages.
On my Wedding Day Christiane helped make me feel so special . I absolutely loved my make up and had so many compliments.
I feel like I not only now have a great makeup artist but I have also made a friend x

Teresa Fenn

Very lovely and professional, great communication throughout the booking and in the run up to the appointment with her squeezing me in due to me contacting her at late notice! My special occasion make up looked amazing and I had so many compliments from everyone. Will definitely be using her again in the future.

Rachel Purchase

My friend and I decided to book a lesson with Christiane after reading all the glowing testimonials on her as well as being very impressed by all her qualifications. We both felt we had become very “set” in the way we did our make up. The communication and response from Christiane was excellent and very quick!. Her salon is beautiful and very clean. What a fabulous experience. We told her she had her work cut out with us, but wow – we had a great afternoon. She taught us both how to contour – with amazing results as well as how to do smoky eyes and evening make up. We have both already decided we need to go back in the New Year for another lesson. Thank you Christiane, if only we could clone you and bring you home with us xxxx


On Saturday I had my makeup done by Christiane for my Christmas party. I turned up not knowing what I wanted, leaving her to do what she thought would suit me best. She was so professional and did my makeup beautifully! I got lots of lovely compliments at the party, I will be a regular from now on xxx


I’ve recently had my make up done by Christiane and all I can say is wow! She is a true professional and is amazing at what she does. I will definitely be returning to have my make up done again.

Tallie Guy

Christiane did my make up for a photoshoot and did a fantastic job. I showed her a picture of what I’d like and she matched it almost identically (obviously so it would work for my features) . Would highly recommend her.

Genevieve Pratt

Christiane did my make up for an important London event and all I can say is wow! I couldn’t have chosen a better person for the job. She is very professional and very skilled,the studio is pristine and welcoming so the experience overall was just amazing. I felt very pampered and definitely will be back there again soon!

Ramona Maftei

Had my make up done for my friends wedding. Communication from the start was brilliant, all professional, very accommodating to what I wanted. My make up was amazing, not heavy at all, it was perfect, everything I had hoped and more. Very friendly service and she took her time to, wasn’t rushed. Felt like a VIP! Would use again for sure and recommend to everyone! ?????

Tammy Evans

Christiane is not only very talented and professional but an absolute pleasure to be around. She listened to exactly what I wanted and made me feel at ease from the moment I met her. My makeup was complimented all day and it stayed looking fresh until the last song was over.
I will be recommending Christiane to everybody and wouldn’t hesitate to call her for my next event.
Thank you Christiane!!

Lauren Granell

I would 100% recommend Christiane.
She was so professional, being very patient as I was incredibly indecisive about what to have done.
I was completely relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed my daughter’s wedding day , not having to worry about my makeup.

Wendy phillips
West End Woking

Fabulous manicure using CND Shellac with Christiane last week. They still look amazing. Huge choice of colours with choice of matt, gloss or pearl topcoat, and glitter too if you wish? . Will defintely be coming back again. Going for bolder colours and glitter next time ?

Melanie Flood

My daughter had her Birthday Party with Christiane yesterday. She absolutely loved it! She learnt loads about how to apply makeup, what brushes to use and Brands, which the girls all loved. Very professional and I learnt a lot myself too. Thank you.

Rohini Handysides

I went to Christiane for the first time a couple of days ago to get a set of gels put on. I’ve never been more pleased with my nails and they’ve lasted longer than any other set I’ve had, normally my others chip off within two days. They feel so strong and healthy, not to mention the beautiful colour! She has a great selection of colours and glitters, so there is something for everyone. I love the fact there is an option to add glitter as normally other salons don’t do this. Usually, my gels look bumpy and uneven, but these look perfect. I’ve already booked in for my second set and I will definitely become a regular! Highly recommend Christiane!

Sian Dunkeld

I visited Christiane to get my nails done. Christiane is very professional and did a great job. I am very happy with my nails and I will be returning. Thank you x

Katherine Saunders

Thank u Christiane for doing a lovely job with my manicure. Had a lovely choice of colours and decided on a pretty sparkling one. Christiane was very professional and will definitely be returning ?


I visited Christiane twice in two days to get my makeup done, each time I left feeling amazing and confident, the second time I bought my mum along with me who also got her makeup done and absolutely loved it. Christiane talked me through each product she used and how she was using them and took my ideas and tailored them to my skin tone and skin type.

If this wasn’t enough she then matched my makeup to my hair and my lipstick to my shoes. She also covered up my mum’s tattoo!

I was so impressed with her skill, professionalism and friendly manner. We can’t wait to find another excuse to get our makeup done!

Perdi Williams

I always try to find make up artists that give you full coverage and an overall glamourous look. I found Christianes Instagram and was so impressed with her work. I had my makeup done for my partners surprise 30th party. Christiane is very professional, with a great studio setup. Christiane knows what will suit you, has a wide range of products and is amazing at makeup. I had so many lovely compliments. I have already booked my next appointment for my Christmas party! 10/10 🙂

Emma Barnwell

I loved having Christiane doing my makeup, she is absolutely fab and I highly recommend her. She listens to what you would like and is able to incorporate that into what suits and looks good on you. Not to mention, she has all the products you could possibly want to try out and sample, so you can get an idea of what works for you without splashing out on a product first.

Christiane also made my broken and brittle nails look amazing again all ready for my holiday! The selection of colours and glitters are to die, definitely recommend! Xx


India May

Had a trial before hand and Christiane created the perfect look. Didn’t have to change anything. Very professional and answered all the questions I asked. Will 100% be using her again. Such a lovely girl and so so talented.

Lauren Norris

Christiane did my makeup for a friends wedding, she was very welcoming, kind and professional. I was more than pleased with the results and had many compliments throughout the day. I didn’t even need to reapply any make up as it lasted throughout. I would highly recommend to anybody wanting make up done for a wedding or special occasion. If i have an event in the area again i will definitely be contacting Christiane!!

Emily Helmick

I was really apprehensive about having someone else do my make up, but always wanted it done. I’d had bad experiences in the past so was just unsure. However I can say that has completely changed! My makeup was absolutely stunning, I had so many compliments and I really did feel beautiful. Everything was exactly as I had asked. Christiane really listened to my points of concern, i.e., skin redness / coverage – my skin looked flawless!! I cannot thank you enough I will never go anywhere else and can happily and comfortably recommend you as the best!! Thank you for making my day extra special!

Charlie-Rose White

Very welcoming lady, in a lovely setting so I felt very relaxed from the start. It was the first time having my make up professionally done so I was nervous, however the end result looked fabulous. Highly recommended. Thank you again!

Hollie Jenkins

So Pleased with my Make up. Everyone commented on how nice my skin looked.
Make up stayed put all day.
Christiane was Fabulous.
I will be returning in the future.
Many Thanks

V Jones

I had my nails done along with my mum . We had such a great time and got long lasting nail varnish. We had so many choices to pick from and got the ones we loved. We were so pleased with our nails and definitely recommend Christiane for every event and family and friends. Thank you so much Christiane.

Elizabeth Jones

I was travelling to Sandhurst for a special occasion and chose Christiane based on her excellent reviews. I’ve had my makeup done numerous times in London, but it is a little daunting going to someone new for a special occasion without having had a trial first. I needn’t have been worried. Christiane is so intuitive and has an exceptional eye for colour and style. As well as taking the time to listen and understand the look that I wanted to create, she also advised me on slight changes to better suit my features and her attention to detail is amazing. I was so pleased with the final result and would highly recommend Christiane to anyone needing a makeup artist, you won’t be disappointed. Christiane, thank you so much for your patience and for making a fabulous day even better. I just need another event in the area so that you can do my makeup again.

My daughter has been absolutely buzzing since her makeup lesson today. Christiane instantly put her at ease and taught her makeup application from start to finish, giving time for questions and encouraging her to apply her own makeup under full instruction with patience and encouragement. My daughter said it was “the best birthday present ever” and came away with a confident swagger in her step. She now has a full list of products used and a huge wish list which I am sure she will work her way through. Thank you so much Christiane xxx


Christiane did mine and my bridesmaids makeup on our wedding day. You really are amazing at what you do and a true artist. Me and the girls looked amazing and were over the moon. And to top it off you really are one of the nicest people I have ever met and I’m pleased to say that I have also made a lovely friend too. Thanks so much ? Xxx

Christiane did my make up for a special occasion and I absolutely loved it. Everyone commented on it and I was extremely happy with the service and how friendly Christiane was.
I have made two further appointments!!!

Thank you so much.


A fabulous lesson!!!! Cannot recommend Christiane highly enough. I found Christiane via her website and was slightly nervous about the lesson as very much a novice with make-up. Christiane made me feel
So comfortable and explained all the techniques used, colours that best suited me and gave guidance when it was my turn to apply!!! Left with my face looking fabulous and a list of products recommended.

Christiane is so knowledge, friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be recommending her to friends !!!

Thanks so much Christiane!


I initially met Christiane when she did a Special Occasion Makeup for me a few months ago and more recently for a makeup lesson. Christiane is a true professional and an absolute perfectionist. I have never met anyone who has quite as much passion for their work. Would highly recommend Christiane for any occasion.


Had my make up done today by Christiane for the first time after travelling down from Scotland for a festival themed party. Felt at ease the moment I arrived and Christiane managed to create the look I had in mind perfectly! Attention to detail was fantastic, went above and beyond! Can’t wait to come back down to come again! Couldn’t recommend enough! Thank you so much ❤️

Just had a very interesting demo from Christiane with her mother as a willing model. All 20 of our club members aged between 70 and 93 found the demo useful and informative.
All off to the shops to replace our old make up and will be trying all the tips before showing off our new glamour tonight at Bingo.
Many thanks and worth other groups booking a group session. Ann

Christiane did my daughters make-up for prom and I cannot thank her enough as she did such a smashing job.
My daughter had been let down last minute and Christiane squeezed us in only with a weeks notice. She was very helpful, professional and calming on the prom day. She also listened to my daughters needs.
We were both very happy with the result.

I couldn’t not take the opportunity to post a review for Christiane. I was devastated to be let down at the last minute by a makeup artist I’d booked for a very special occasion during the week. I’d already heard about Christiane and after seeing her work and all of the recommendations on her website I messaged her to see if she could help. Unsurprisingly she was already completely booked, but Christiane then offered to open up an extra appointment really early in the morning to be able to see me. I really couldn’t be more grateful. As well as being an exceptional talent, she is so friendly, professional and extremely calming. The appointment was so relaxing and everyone thought I looked amazing on the day. Although I was very stressed at the time, I couldn’t be more happy that being let down resulted in me meeting Christiane instead. Couldn’t recommend her enough. Thank you again Christiane.


Christiane has done my makeup on numerous occasions and without a doubt is the best makeup artist you will ever find! Not only is she so talented at what she does but she listens to what you want. She is very professional but also makes you feel at ease and is extremely easy to talk to! The quality of the makeup is outstanding. She made me look and feel gorgeous. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a makeup artist. From a night out to a wedding she is your girl!

I had been let down by 2 make up artists and found Christiane by a recommendation.. And I can honestly say I think it was meant to be! I was so happy with the service from the minute me and my Nan (she loves to come with me) stepped into Christiane’s studio. She was so welcoming, professional and smart. I was given a glass of prosecco.. how much better can a service get! – Every step of my make over Christiane showed me and explained each product she was using and how it will benefit the final look. I have found a make up artist for life and will always always come back. Being a beautician myself I always like to see how to up my game and hands on heart I was shown a truly amazing service by a wonderful lady!

Christiane did my wedding make-up.
Was the first time I met her and, as I hadn’t had a trial, I was a bit nervous.

I was so impressed by her professional attitude and patience that I would recommend her to everyone.

Thank you Christiane,

Christiane did my daughter’s makeup for her Prom. We had a trial to determine the look she wanted to go with her dress and were completely satisfied on the day when it all came together. We will be booking Christiane again and would not hesisitate to recommend her services. Thank you Christiane

Christiane did a beautiful Shellac Luxury Pedicure for me before my holiday. I had to write a review because I was so pleased with it! Christiane is so friendly and professional and recommended a Chrome finish which I had never tried before and I absolutely loved the end result. She stocks such a huge range of colours and finishes and is so good at recommending what will look good. I’ll definitely be recommending Christiane to my friends. Thank you so much Christiane, I can’t wait for a Special Occasion as I’ll definitely be coming to you for my Makeup as well, your work looks amazing and the appointment really was such a treat.


Christiane is such a lovely person, and amazing at what she does!! Would 100% recommend her to anyone for any occasion, loved my look so much and everyone else I’ve seen her do also look incredible. Thank you sooo much!!

Zoe Christou

Really recommend Christiane!

My makeup looked exactly how I wanted and looked really lovely. It also lasted the whole night with no mess, the thing being great about that is I was up dancing, singing and taking photos and it stayed set in place, which was amazing! And having my makeup done was great as Christiane  is so nice and sociable! Thank you for everything ?

I had my make up done for a friend’s wedding. Christiane is a lovely, friendly and very professional person. I’m not great at make up so left colours etc up to Christiane and she did an amazing job. I’ve already booked my next appointment and would definitely recommend her.


Christiane was kind enough to do my younger sister’s prom makeup at her Sandhurst studio at quite short notice, and I have to say she was amazing!
She was so warm and welcoming, and took the time to work out what skin type she had, what colours would suit her tone and even colour matched the glitters and shadows used to the colour of her dress!
She genuinely wanted to make sure everything was done perfectly and exactly as my sister wanted. Throughout the appointment she was also explaining new products and giving tips and tricks on how to use them. Not only this, the final look Christiane created was absolutely flawless! I would 100% recommend Christiane Makeup Artistry for a friendly and professional service and cannot wait to book her again for future events.

I visited Christiane earlier this week for a makeup lesson. I wanted to find out what complements my skin now that I’m getter older, as my usual way of doing things were way out of date. I learnt some valuable techniques and she introduced me to some products I have never been confident enough to try before.
Thank you so much for the lesson and I’m looking forward to trying things out at home.

Oh my! Fabulous 90 minutes and advice. My daughter wanted some make up advice and sooo enjoyed herself. Christiane is a delightful artist whose passion shines through. I loved that she wrote down products used and after matching my daughter finally found a foundation colour that suits her. Christiane actually goes out of her way to source products you can’t find and advises ways to get them.

Totally 110% recommend.  I’m just a bit worried I now have a huge shopping list ?


Christiane did my make up for my brothers wedding, what an amazing job she did! I loved it, she listened to my requests and got it spot on. Everyone complimented my make up, so pleased.
Looking forward to another occasion now so I can get my make up done again!

Abi Tonner

Christiane, lovely , friendly and very professional. Love my make up, booked in again for July for a wedding 🙂

Nicola Harris

My friend and I had our special occasion make up done by Christiane and I can honestly say it’s the best make up I’ve ever had done. Christiane is professional, friendly and extremely talented. She listened to what we wanted and I looked exactly how I wanted to look. I will definitely be back. Thank you Christiane for making me feel amazing!!

Verity White

Christiane did my makeup for my 18th Birthday and on numerous occasions since then. It always looks amazing! I highly recommend her.

Christiane came to my rescue at very short notice.

She was friendly and reassuring with me and took her time to get the look just right.

It was a lovely treat and I found that my views were really taken in to account.

I received many compliments on the night and will definitely use her again.

For once my photos were good! I highly recommend.

Anne- Marie

I really enjoyed being Christiane’s model at a Group Makeup Tutorial.

Christiane did a great job of talking us through exactly what she was doing, what products were used and why they were important additions to our makeup bags!

I certainly learnt a few new tricks for putting on my make-up.

Good luck with your business Christiane and I am happy to recommend you to anyone who is looking for help, advice or a full make-over for a special occasion.

Karen Livingstone

Christiane is professional,friendly and knows what products are best for your skin.

For all things makeup ,whether it’s for an event or a make up lesson ,I would 100% recommend Christiane.I even got compliments on my makeup the day of my lesson which speaks for itself really.


I run a social group and Christiane has run several sessions for us. She is professional, knowledgeable and tailors her advice to suit individual requirements. She uses a wide range of products to great effect. Getting a group together is a fun and interesting way to spend an evening, highly recommended!

Jackie Whitbread

Christiane came to our Ladies Group to give a Make Up Lesson. I must say she was really really good. She gave excellent advice and the make up she applied on one of our number to demonstrate her skills was lovely. I would recommend her to anyone who was wanting their make up done for an occasion. Also the products she used were high quality. Christiane is a lovely person and so easy to talk to. Thoroughly recommended for all ladies of any age.

Christiane did my makeup for a special birthday. Easy to talk to, really listened to what I wanted and introduced me to some beautiful new makeup products. I was so delighted with the finished look. Highly recommended.

I went to Christiane for my Halloween makeup. I wanted skull face paint with glitter for clubbing. I was over the moon and went out clubbing in style. All my friends and family commented on how excellent I looked on the night. Thanks again Christiane highly recommend for all sorts of makeup events 10/10.

Farnborough, Hampshire

Christiane did a group make up lesson for me and some family & friends at my house last year. Even though there was quite a difference in the ages of everyone attending, we all learnt so much and it was great fun. I’ve recommended Christiane to other friends for special occasions and prom make up and they’ve all been really pleased with her work and how relaxed she makes everyone feel.
