Claire is an amazing makeup artist. Not just for her skill but also it was like having a dear friend with me on the day, calming my nerves and making sure I was happy with everything as we went along. From the moment I was engaged I knew the style I wanted to go for for my dress and makeup. My dress was a 1950's tea length polka dot lace gown so I knew that my makeup needed to fit the vintage style. Claire completely understood the look I wanted to go for at my trial, I absolutely loved the end result and how intuitive she was about all the products and colours that would complement the look I was going for. The most important being that I wanted to look the best I could without wearing a mask! My makeup stayed on all day and looked as pristine 10 hours later as it had done upon application! Just perfect, my only down point...not having Claire to do my makeup everyday! Lucy

Like having a dear friend with you...

Thank you for making me feel so special on my wedding day. From what was a very nervous morning, you calmed me down, and made me look like the best version of me. I had so many compliments on how lovely my make up looked - most importantly from Paul! It was a very rainy day, but even that didn’t smudge your fantastic make up job. We had the best day of our lives so thank you so much again for being part of it - we’ll be sure to recommend you! All the best. Jo

Even the rain didn't smudge my makeup...

I loved loved loved my makeup! From the very first moment I met Claire I knew I was in safe hands. I've had eczema all my life and have always been really conscious of what how my skin appears to other people but when I read Claire's website I knew that she would know exactly where I was coming from! We did a trial run of my wedding makeup, went through ideas, pictures, what I wanted to look like and what exactly would suit me and my skin, going through step by step together making sure we were on the right track and I have to say I felt so happy and excited that I got to see this wonderful lady again on my wedding day and I knew she would make me look my best! When Claire turned up on the day itself she was just such a calm and relaxed lovely lady to have there it was brilliant, all I can say it is just a shame I can't see her everyday to make me feel a million dollars like she did that day! Anna

I knew I was in safe hands...

I had such a wonderful wedding day and it got off to a great start by having the super-calm Claire there! She did my mum and three bridesmaids' make up too and she was so professional and really listened to what each person wanted. I wanted to still look like me, but on a really good day, and Claire definitely made that happen. My make up lasted late into the evening and was just the perfect fit for our wedding. Jenna

Super-calm Claire, professional and really listened...

Thank you so much for everything at our wedding! You were brilliant- calm, efficient and I loved the outcome so much, my skin has never looked better! Mum and Isla looked brilliant too and I know they were really happy with it. Sophie

Calm, efficient and my skin has never looked better...

Everyone loved the make up, even my hairdresser said it was some of the best wedding make up she had seen, only good things to say! I'd love to be able to do my cheeks like you did, they looked so nice. Rachel

Best wedding makeup...

You tended to me and my nerves and I wanted to thank you all for your kindness, and making me look so nice. We look back on the day with real fondness, and a little regret that it went by so quickly! Thank you again. Candace

You tended to my nerves, thank you for your kindness...

Having my make-up done professionally for my wedding was high on my list of priorities! Communication with Claire was easy, friendly and professional from initial enquiry right through to the big day, any query or question no matter how small was answered timely and enthusiastically. The trial went really well, my ideas and preferences were understood and Claire helped guide me towards what would work best for me based on my skin type and colourings, I was thrilled after the trial and couldn’t wait until the day itself. On the day, Claire arrived promptly and made me feel at ease straight away, I was so happy with my make up and my hubby was very pleased that I still looked like me! I brought the lip gloss which was a good suggestion as I used this throughout the wedding day and have used it lots since, a good investment! Claire also did make-up for Mother of the Bride, who enjoyed feeling glam without feeling ‘over-done’ a nice natural look which lasted well.
Our make up stood the tests of the day, lasting well into the evening and not budging despite my tears during our vows! Thank you Claire, I would not hesitate to recommend you to others and book you again myself for another event. Simply FABULOUS!! Emma

Simply fabulous!...

Thanks so much for your help in getting me, my Mum and my three bridesmaids looking great on Saturday. You did an amazing job and were so efficient! I had so many compliments about my make up and it was all down to you! I would definitely recommend you! Holly

You did an amazing job and were so efficient...

Claire was an amazing make up artist on my wedding day. Everyone looked gorgeous. We were really happy how well the make up lasted all day and night and how it looked natural. Claire was super calming and professional at all times. We can't thank her enough. Claire

An amazing makeup artist...

I absolutely LOVED my make up so so much - you did a fantastic job and I honestly couldn't have wished for it to be any better. Lydia

I couldn't have wished for it to be any better...

Thank you so much, I loved the make up and everyone said how good it looked. My mum loved you!! Thanks for keeping me calm and checking on me! Ariane

My Mum loved you...

Claire was so lovely and helpful right from the word go! When we first met I didn’t really have a clue what I wanted – just ideas, but Claire really helped narrow it down, by giving me advice on what would work for me. So when it came to the big day I felt incredible. I cannot thank her enough for being so calm and organised on the morning of, having to do my mum, sister and myself is no mean feat. If you are looking for someone who is a total professional, friendly and has an eye for detail then Claire is your lady. I would recommend her to anyone and I’m currently trying to think of a reason to have her do my make up again. Kayleigh

Calm and organised and a total professional...

Claire came to do my, and my best friend’s make up for my wedding at Burgh Island in October. After an initial Skype consultation (as I’m not local) I felt immediately relaxed and knew that Claire understood exactly what I wanted for my 1930’s style look. Her knowledge of vintage looks was very reassuring. On the day she was a calming influence in our tiny whirlwind of ‘getting readiness’ and made me chuckle, as well as look gorgeous! I was so lucky to find her! Sophie

I felt immediately relaxed and reassured...

Having suffered with bad skin all my life my makeup artist was high on my list of priorities for my wedding. I can suffer from cystic acne as well as eczema and am probably a make up artists worst nightmare! Meeting Claire at a wedding fair by chance was a stroke of luck, but after speaking with her for only 5 minutes I knew she was the make-up artist I had been looking for. Having had troubling skin herself she put me at ease straight away, she was confident but not pushy which was so important to me as I have had bad experiences where artists in the past have pushed me down roads where I no longer feel myself. Claire was the opposite and gave me the confidence that no matter what my skin threw at us on the day we would be able to tackle it!

On the day Claire’s make up area was a little corner of calm! At the later part of the morning as we were nearly ready to leave stresses in the wedding party where starting to show which was starting to panic me slightly. Claire spotted this and pulled me over to the makeup corner to give me a ‘moment’ to myself whilst everyone had a little fuss on the other side of the room! This was a real relief for me and I very grateful for those few moment’s to compose myself. Along with her fantastic personal skills the make up looked amazing! As an outsider you wouldn’t even have know I had a skin problem, the make up also stayed on all day with no touch ups! Claire also did the make up for the mums and bridesmaids who all look gorgeous and everyone said how much they loved their looks. I can’t recommend Claire highly enough and It goes without saying that Claire is firmly in my contacts for whenever I need a makeup artist again. Steph

Claires makeup area was a little corner of calm...

Thank you for the amazing job you did on my makeup, loads of evening guests commented how fresh it still looked, it really lasted all day and night. Adele

Evening guests commented on how fresh it still looked...

Thank you so much for all your help on my wedding day, you’re absolutely fantastic! I absolutely loved my makeup and I had so many compliments about it! It was just perfect and you managed to make me look just how I wanted to, even though I didn’t know what I wanted. You were also a brilliant and calming person to have around on the day. My mum and mother in law also loved having their makeup done and my mum is wondering if you can come everyday to help her get ready! We had the most wonderful day, it all went wonderfully, it was the best day of our lives! Jess

I had so many compliments, it was just perfect...

As well as being an incredible, professional and truly talented makeup artist, Claire is such a warm, kind and lovely lady. From the moment I first made contact with Claire to the wedding day itself, she made me feel completely at ease. During the make up trial, Claire asked lots of questions to understand what style and colours I like. She also listened to my insecurities around the issues I have with my acne scarring and reassured me with ways she can use the make up to cover up without being too over the top. Claire talked through what she was doing every step of the way picking out the perfect style and colours for me. On the day, Claire was as lovely as ever and helped to keep me calm. When she gave me the mirror at the end, I was so happy with what she had done - I couldn't believe it was me! Thank you Claire, I recommend you to everyone! Laura

She listened to my insecurities...

I was so pleased with my make up on my wedding day, Claire completely understood what I wanted and used products to compliment my colours and skin tone. Claire was fantastic on the day and helped keep us all relaxed and calm. My make up lasted really well all day and I had lots of compliments. Claire will be highly recommended. Emma

Highly recommended...

We have had the pleasure of working alongside Claire on many weddings and photo shoots, and we are always excited when we get the chance to work together, Claire's attention to detail and talent is second to none, very professional and down to earth every time. Claire is not only a great Makeup Artist but has become a great friend. We choose Claire every time and so should you. Steven and Laurent Hairdressers

Her attention to detail is second to none...

From the first email to Claire and our early discussions regarding the makeup and look that I wanted for myself and my bridesmaids I was both impressed and confident that I had made the perfect choice. Claire offered a lot of support not only with the trial session but discussing tweaks and offering suggestions right up until the wedding itself. On the morning of the wedding Claire was a truly integral part of the morning and I will never forget how kind she was to me during that morning checking that I was OK and helping me keep as calm as possible. My make up was perfect, glamorous and classy and my bridesmaids looked incredible too. I had so many compliments throughout the day and night. I would not hesitate to recommend Claire and I can't praise her approach, technique, professionalism and her soothing manner highly enough. Annalie

My makeup was perfect, glamorous and classy…

I was so thrilled with my make up on the day and so was my Mum. It was just what we hoped for and more! You also really helped to make the wedding morning really special, thank you. Edwina

I was thrilled with my makeup…

Claire did my bridal makeup in April this year and it was absolutely beautiful. I came across Claire at the Deer Park Country Hotel Wedding fair and from the moment I met her I felt at ease and new right away that she would be the perfect makeup artist for me. I also like the fact that Claire uses a mixture of MAC and Bobbi Brown cosmetics which are 2 of my favourite brands! One thing that I remember her saying is that she wanted the makeup to enhance my beauty and feel and look natural which is the look I wanted to go for and it was perfect on the day! Thank you so much Claire for helping to make my day so special! Harriet

The makeup enhanced me and was perfect...

We were all really pleased with our make-up on the day, even my mum and sister who are not make-up wearers! My sister has even worn false lashes for other occasions now. You were so friendly and relaxing to be around, during the makeup trial and on the day you were amazing, really calming and supportive. You made it feel that nothing was too much trouble and you did not seem fazed about anything - you really helped me to feel better and calm. The makeup lasted all day and evening, I did not have to touch it up at all which was great. We received compliments on the makeup, particularly my mum and sister as people were not used to seeing them 'made up' but they felt really comfortable and it looked so natural. You were so down to earth and friendly, that I had no concerns or nerves having you doing my makeup, thank you so much. Emma

You were amazing, really calming and supportive...

Thank you Claire, everyone could not speak highly enough of your makeup it stayed in place for hours! Grace

My makeup stayed in place for hours…

I loved my wedding make up, thank you so much...you got it exactly right! Caroline

You got it exactly right…

My wedding make up was better than I could have ever imagined, with problem skin it was the one thing I was worried about, but Claire was amazing and it stayed put for the whole day with no need for touch ups. Thank you and I have already recommended you to other friends getting married – Philippa

With problem skin it was the one thing I was worried about…

Claire was an absolute professional. She had me, mum and two bridesmaids to do on the day and did a great job with everyone. She really listened to everything I had to say about how I wanted to look on the day and I was really pleased with the results. Also my bridesmaids and Mum looked their absolute best. She also did a great job keeping me calm on the day. Claire

An absolute professional…

I knew that I wanted someone who would go for a natural style of makeup which would make me feel comfortable on the day and last through the evening – I wanted to look like myself on my wedding day! After reviewing Claires website, photos and testimonials, I felt like her style and a professional approach would suit me perfectly. We had a trial and after some suggestions and discussions we settled on a style. I was so happy with the outcome, I felt confident and happy and the makeup lasted all day without feeling like it was too heavy. Claire was wonderful on the day, making me feel relaxed and happy, she was really comfortable with my family, the hairdresser and photographer – they all worked really well and made for the perfect morning! Lauren

Claire was wonderful on the day…

Claire is one incredibly special lady - she has provided makeup for many of our photo shoots and wedding fairs and we are wowed and amazed by her incredible professionalism and pedigree under pressure. Her results are stunning and Claire smiles the whole way through the process. Claire understands each project brief and her attention to detail and very high standards have been noted. It is always a pleasure working with her and I would have no hesitation in recommending her as a makeup artist of the highest order. I look forward to working with her on future events and projects. Blue Fizz Events

Claire is one incredibly special lady...

I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did on mine and my Mums makeup for my wedding. I had a fantastic day and received a lot of comments on how beautiful I looked, thanks to your efforts! My makeup looked perfect all day – even after the dancing finished at 2am. Thank you so much for your professionalism and attention to detail. I would recommend you to anyone. Kate

My makeup looked perfect all day…

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you did for me and my mum before and on the morning of the wedding! I know I was a fussy bride but I honestly loved my make up and my mum looked amazing as well! I would recommend you to anyone in the future! Thank you again for everything! Lauren

I was a fussy bride and I loved my makeup…

From our first meeting you made me feel very comfortable and confident that I was going to look nice on my Wedding day. I am useless with make up and really had no idea of how I wanted my make up to look. On the day it was just right, perfect in fact, not too much and not too little. Thank you so much for helping make our day perfect. Catherine

It was perfect, not too much or too little…

So pleased, thank you so much for my wonderful makeup on my wedding day, I felt so beautiful and Tom literally gasped when I walked down the aisle! I had lots of compliments on my makeup and it stayed on all night. Claire

Tom literally gasped as I walked down the aisle...

Thank you so much for doing my make up on my wedding day, I really did love what I looked like and it was lovely having you be part of my day. Kathryn

I loved what I looked like…

You did an amazing job and I'm so grateful. I had endless compliments about my wedding make up. Jodie

I had endless compliments about my makeup…

Thank you so much for all your help and advice on our wedding day. You made me feel like I myself, but a far lovelier version! I was confident from our first conversation that you understood what I wanted and the Skype chat and Pinterest boards made the process easy as we couldn't fit in a trial. You were so lovely, flexible and calming and helped to make getting ready relaxed and fun. Thank you again! Claire

I felt like myself, only lovelier…

The minute I met Claire I instantly knew I had booked a professional. She made me feel at ease and I felt so comfortable with her. Claires expertise was outstanding, she knew exactly what would work well for me, the base Claire applied looked so light and natural yet covered my imperfections brilliantly. Not only did Claire apply the most beautiful makeup she was also such a calming influence on the day. When I looked in the mirror I honestly couldn't believe that it was me, I loved the way I looked, my skin looked clear and I had never felt so beautiful before, I couldn't stop smiling. The makeup looks fantastic in all of the photographs and is very natural looking. I recommend Claire to everyone! Claire played such a massive part in our big day and I will always be so grateful to her. Loren

Light and natural makeup, but still covering my imperfections…

I’m not a makeup kind of girl and what I loved about Claires approach was that it was calm, knowledgeable and friendly, she instantly put me at my ease and made me comfortable. Claire couldn’t have been more professional - happy to work in a very hot and sunny room with a photographer and excited 9 year old bridesmaid for company. She helped me stay calm and look forward to the rest of the day. I got married on one of the hottest days of 2013 and my makeup remained in place, looking fresh until I went to bed about midnight. Claire gave me a couple of tips about taking away shine just before the photos and the proof of how skillful she is, shows in the photos...in temperatures of 32c+ I would normally be very hot and bothered but I looked cool and serene even in the photos taken 6 hours after Claire had worked her magic. I really can't recommend her highly enough! Liz

Claire is calm, knowledgeable and friendly…

Thank you for all your hard work on my wedding day. We all looked and felt wonderful! You did such a fantastic job! Liz

You did such a fantastic job…

Claire you did a fantastic job! Not only of our wedding day makeup but providing a calming atmosphere, general counselling session and booster of moral! So a big thank you, my daughter looked so radiant and as all elements of the morning were put together, hair, makeup, lipstick, dress, lipstick, veil and lipstick again I watched her confidence flourish and she truly blossomed. She did not stop smiling all day. My makeup felt natural and dare I say it I felt a little bit glamourous. Please be assured Claire I have been singing your praises for the excellent, professional but for me friendly service you provide, thank you once again. Donna

A calming atmosphere whilst creating natural but glamourous makeup…

Truly fantastic! I absolutely loved my makeup and felt amazing on the day. Claire came to our wedding venue to makeup the bridal party; we all agreed that we have never had such amazing make-overs before and it really did last all day. It was such a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, we all enjoyed the treat of having our makeup professionally applied. I can't recommend Claire enough - if I lived closer, I would definitely take advantage of the makeup lessons! Karina

We all had such amazing makeovers…

Thank you so much Claire for my beautiful bridal makeup, it felt so natural and lasted all day and night. With sensitive skin prone to eczema, I was worried about using new products on my skin, however you put me at ease with your knowledge and confidence about sensitive skin types, and the high quality products you were using meant I had no need to worry! Katherine

You put me at ease with your knowledge and confidence...

Thank you so much Claire! You made me look and feel amazing on my special day. I had loads of compliments on my makeup – which I wouldn’t have had if I had done it myself. Best makeup artist ever! Annalea

You made me look and feel amazing...

I was amazed at how flawless my skin looked after Claire did my makeup on my wedding day. I only slept four hours the night before so it was a little miracle that she managed to get me looking so good! The makeup she chose suited my skin tone perfectly and the peachy and coral colours transformed my face. I would highly recommend Claire, for me it was definitely worth it as I could relax knowing that my makeup would stay in place for the whole day and looked good too. Julia

My skin looked flawless…
