Christiane did my make up for my wedding and it was exactly what I wanted for my big day. I felt amazing, the look really worked with my dress and hair style and it lasted all day. I felt amazing and she is one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met!

Laura Head

Christiane did my makeup for my 18th birthday party and she was amazing. She makes you feel super comfortable and at ease and really listens to what you want. I would 100% recommend her services for any event and will definitely go back to her in the future if I ever need my makeup done again. 10/10 would 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.

Sarah Tidball

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

Louise Ruffell

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.

Hannah Khan

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 Christiana 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 Christiana 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 Christiana, 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.
Thank you so much Christiane x

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.

Leah Tulley

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

Alix Bentley

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
