Kind Words from Our Brides

  • Christiane was amazing right from the first point of contact. She understood exactly the look I was after (not too heavy with focus on the eyes) and gave me some great ideas. On the says itself she was punctual and a great calming person to have around as the nerves started to build. My make up lasted all day and she even gave me a little lipstick touch up kit just in case. I would recommend Christiane over and over again and thoroughly deserves this recognition.
  • I have never had my make up done professionally and it was one of the things I was most anxious about building up to the wedding, Christiane listened to what I wanted and how I wanted to look to find what was perfect for me. My make up and my bridals parties make up looked amazing and everyone commented on how great it was.
  • Christiane always replied to messages promptly. I was very picky as had done my makeup everyday since I was 14, so she had a hard job on her hands. I have cystic acne, so it was an even more sensitive matter for me, than just someone putting makeup on my face. She understood my concerns, and I was put at ease the moment I spoke to her over the phone. I had previously already had a trial with another MUA, but knew that Christiane was a better fit for myself and her portfolio. Def would use again.
  • I could not fault Christiane’s work or her work ethic. The most professional makeup artist I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. From the trial to the big day, my makeup was never something I had to worry about! She put me at ease from the moment she replied to my first email, understood my vision for myself and the bridesmaids and carried it out to perfection! My makeup lasted until the next morning when I took it off!! I cannot recommend or thank Christiane enough!!
  • Christiane did a brilliant job of my makeup and my bridal party. I will 1000% book Christiane again for all future events.
  • Christiane was fantastic from start to finish on our wedding day. Her home studio is beautiful and extremely professional. Christiane was punctual and relaxing to be around. On the morning she did make up for me, my mum and sister, and we were all so happy with the results. If I have another event in future, I would not hesitate to use Christiane’s services again, she was a star!
  • Christiane was very professional and make up she made looked stunning. She was not only able to advise what would suit the best but also implemented personal preferences. Customer service and communication couldn’t have been better. Even on such a stressful day, I’ve felt like talking to a friend. The finished look definitely helped me feel beautiful and special on my big day, just as every bride should.
  • Christiane was very understanding of my self-consciousness of being an older bride and created an age approach look that I was very pleased with. Both my daughters’ loved their look and Christiane dealt with their complexion problems (hormones that was out of our control) ) with a professional look that the girls loved. Even my flower girl granddaughter loved her minimal look and a felt included in the process. The day was well timetabled and there was no rush to prepare in the morning.
  • She was brilliant. Couldn’t fault her at all and was so lovely to my mother and I. Would recommend to everyone.
  • Christiane was amazing from the moment I contacted her. At my trial she was amazing at helping me with colours and style as I had no clue. On the wedding day she was prompt and professional and me my 2 bridesmaids and mum felt amazing. My makeup lasted all day with no touch ups needed I even fell asleep in it and it still looked immaculate the next day.
  • I was genuinely so surprised how amazing we all looked. Everyone felt a million dollars and that’s all down to Christiane. She listened to everything we asked and frequently checked to make sure we were happy before continuing further. We were all relaxed, again surprised given only I had had a trial prior to the date. The make up stayed on all day. No faults!
  • Christiane was wonderful from the start of the process right until the end. She was always very polite and prompt in her communication and I felt immediately at ease when I met her for my trial. On the day she arrived early and got set up straight away. She was ahead of time and waited patiently for the rest of us to ‘catch up’ as we were having our hair done in the same slots. There were also lovely little touches which made all the difference. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Christiane.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Christiane is an amazing makeup artist. I went for a trial not knowing what I wanted, and she helped me achieve a natural look thy I felt comfortable with. On the day she was prompt and reassuring, and even did makeup for an unplanned member of the bridal party with the bridesmaid’s own makeup due to allergies. We are all very happy with her work and I could not recommend her more!
  • Christiane blew me away with her expert knowledge and professionalism. She was an absolute delight to work with and I couldn’t be any happier with how my make up looked on my wedding day! I couldn’t recommend her any more highly.
  • I searched for local make up artists and came across her website. She looked professional and had amazing reviews from previous clients. She was quick to respond to my initial enquiry and her pricing was good for the quality of her service. She came across as so lovely and personable and this was proven in my make up trial.
  • I couldn’t have been happier with my Christiane, the whole process was amazing! Completely on the ball with organisation and flexible with meeting times. Before my wedding, I had got a fake tan done, so when it came to my wedding day the make-up i had agreed from my trial was too light. Christiane adjusted to this straight away, it didn’t even seem like an issue, just adjusted and proceeded like a professional. The maids and Mother-of-the-Bride were over the moon with there make up too!
  • 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.
