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

After researching and contacting hundreds of Makeup Artists for my Bridal Makeup 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.

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.

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!!

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

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.

Anita – Berkshire

Christiane was very understanding of my self consciousness of being an older bride and created an age appropriate look that I was very pleased with. Both my daughters loved their look and Christiane dealt with their complexion problems (hormones that were 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.

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 – Surrey

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.

Kate – Berkshire

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.

Jade – Hampshire

Christiane did my wedding make up along with my Bridesmaids and Mum. She is truly talented and we were over the moon with her work. She is a true professional and such a lovely lady, I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to her for any future occasions. If you are fortunate enough to book her, you won’t be disappointed! She is AMAZING!
