Christiane did mine, my mums 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.Stef – Berkshire
