The Judging Panel Feedback

Your commitment to give the best service you can is outstanding. With Christiane Dowling’s inclusive values, it presents how approachable you are from the moment your clients visit your website to when they meet you in person. This ethos is something that more artists (and business) should aspire to. Just by having the slogan ‘you don’t have to ask here’ is helping to make a change for equality. Clients know that regardless of their backgrounds they are welcomed, respected and supported.

You have an arsenal of makeup images across your social media and on the Christiane Dowling website. You offer makeup looks to suit everyone’s taste and your application is beautifully precise.

I like that your Instagram aesthetic shows off your makeup skills with the many beautiful shots you have. Your website is easy to navigate with all the information a bride would need to get an understanding of the way you work, your inclusivity and if Christiane Dowling is the right fit for them.

It’s evident that your attention to detail is of the utmost importance to you. From the makeup you apply, the brands you use and your modern beauty room the client can trust they are in good hands. You have thought of everything to enhance the client’s experience.

I am blown away by the level of personal growth you show by always seeing a challenge as a learning experience and a way to make your business better. You want to be the best, and knowledge is power, so you continue to learn new skills and gain qualifications to provide your brides with the best service possible.

I think the way you would adapt your service to make sure the client is happy with their finished look
offers great creativity and understanding. This is where you step away from the makeup and look outside the box. Being open and understanding what it is that they need to make them look and feel beautiful. As you say “if it matters enough for them to mention it, then it’s important that I am listening and learning’.

You have so many fantastic 5* reviews and I can see from what your clients have to say about you and the service you provide, you go over and above! You make real connections with your clients
empathising and understanding what their requirements are. Making their bridal makeup experience something wonderful to cherish and to recommend to others.

Christiane has really considered everyone in her work and the way she presents herself with the
inclusion of transgender beauty and LGBTQ Equality. The wedding industry can be very guilty of only
showcasing white cis weddings and its refreshing to see inclusivity promoted.

Most detailed and informative website. Some beautiful makeup skills showcased in her portfolio, social media and supporting files. Amazing for a business that has been trading for 4 years.

  • Christiane is an exceptional young lady who is going places, I am sure one day I will say “oh wow, she did my make-up for my wedding”! Christiane is bang on trend and able to achieve a variety of different looks according to your requirements. I feel incredibly lucky and privileged to have secured her for my special day!

  • Very professional. Will definitely travel anywhere to have Christine do my make up again.
  • She made me feel like a princess.
  • I felt a million dollars $$$$$ from morning until midnight!
  • Right from my first communication to Christiane asking if she had availability on my wedding date and whether she traveled to my wedding location, I was incredibly impressed with her response which included every detail you could possibly imagine. She literally left no stone unturned when it came to detailing every possible finer detail of her services. Christiane had 4 different looks to work with on the actual wedding day and she achieved everyone’s vision quite perfectly.
  • When I searched for MUA on Google, I got a really good feel from her website. Upon reading reviews and stalking her on Instagram, I had made up my mind that I would be more than happy to put my trust in her to make my vision a reality.
