Carys did my bridal makeup as well as five bridesmaids and did an absolutely brilliant job. My makeup was flawless, not too heavy either which was exactly what I wanted, and lasted it all day and night.

I can be very fussy with makeup, but Carys put me totally at ease, making sure everything was exactly as I wanted. We all got compliments all day on how fab our makeup was.

As well as beautiful makeup Carys was an absolute pleasure to have around on the morning of the wedding. She stayed with us until we were all ready to leave and helped us every step of the way.

Would definitely recommend! xx Rebecca - Married 26/08/2018

Carys did my bridal make up and the make up for my four bridesmaids and mother. 
From first contact she was warm and friendly and made me feel much more at ease in an area where I have zero experience having never really worn much makeup. 
The trial was amazing, she even suggested a date where I would make the best use of the make up which was really nice so I was all made up for my birthday night out. 
She listened to what I wanted and used her talents to pick the colours she thought I would like. 
On the morning of the wedding she was loads of fun to have around, laughing and joining in with us all! 
She's an absolute 10/10 and I will be looking for an excuse to have professional make up done again!

Carys did my makeup on my wedding day and I could not have asked for a better person to have with me the morning of my wedding. Her care and attention to detail is impeccable. She listened to what I wanted and made me feel so stunning for my big day. Not only can Carys do her job to the highest level but she really made me feel so happy and at ease the morning of my wedding despite the rain. We had lots of laughs excitement and she sent me to meet the man I love at the alter feeling beautiful. Thank you Carys. Lots of love. Kel. Xx  Kelly - Married 10/06/2017

Carys did my hair and makeup for my wedding. I can not give this girl enough stars, she made me feel amazing! She made me and my bridesmaids feel totally at ease and having her there on my wedding morning made the day even more special. Everyone commented on my hair and makeup, Carys achieved exactly what I wanted. I just wish I could keep her in my pocket and have her do my hair and makeup every day!  Daisy - Married 27/08/2016??  DF

Carys did my wedding make up at the beginning of August and she was brilliant! She is very professional and made myself and the whole bridal party look beautiful. As soon as I had my trial I knew I had made the right choice. I have very sensitive skin and the make up she used didn't irritate my skin at all. I cannot recommend Carys enough. Thank you so much Carys :-)  Claire - Married 01/08/14

Carys did the make up for my wedding back in May and I couldn't have been happier with the results. She was an absolute pro, right from the pre-wedding consultation to the big day itself. She talked me through everythingstep by step, adapting the make up to suit the style and theme of our wedding. I was totally put at ease throughout the whole process and could not have asked for a better make up artist for my wedding :) Book her! Book her now!                                                 P.s I had so many positive comments about my makeup, on the day and when people saw the photos which is all down to Carys' magic touch!

This lovely lady was fabulous for my bridal makeup, my makeup stayed put all day and looked fresh right through the evening loved my natural look and my hint of glam lashes.. Would highly recommend to anyone and was a pleasure to meet you... Such a friendly lady too.... Thank you so much, love Mrs Cousen.    Gemma - Married 21/06/14

Carys was recommended to me by a family friend, and when she came to do the trial a few months before the wedding, I knew she was the right girl for the job. I tend not to wear a lot of make-up, so I wanted to be sure I looked and felt fairly natural, she listened to what I asked for and made me look better than I thought I could. It was so nice to know that I didn't have to worry about make up on the wedding morning. Carys is also bags of fun, and it was really nice to have her to giggle with as me, mum and the bridesmaids were getting ready.

I had tonnes of complements for the makeup on the day, too, so I can wholeheartedly recommend Carys' services.  Lizzy - married 23/11/13

I recently got married on 3rd August 2013. Having known Carys for a long time it was the sensible choice to ask her to help me achieve my summer wedding look.Carys was thorough in obtaining my initial preferences but was aware of how important trying the looks would be to suit my colourings. She was competent in her ideas but focused on the look I wanted. Having had my trial I was super confident on my big day that she would be just what I needed, a calm, fun, professional make up artist who would provide perfect results! I really enjoyed having my make up done and Carys totally added a spark to my big day! My pictures are amazing with flawless makeup done to perfection! So pleased and would recommend her to all brides to be!!

Just fabulous and can't wait to get my makeup lesson off her, booked to take place in the near future! Philippa - Married 03/08/2013

Carys is a brilliant make up artist, my make up was exactly what I wanted and lasted all day, even through the tears! 

But far more than that she manages to make you feel comfortable and relax at one of the most nerve wracking times of your lives! A lovely girl; patient, friendly and really funny, and a true professional... I would recommend her to anyone!  Hollie - Married 24/05/2013

Carys was amazing, my makeup was perfect. Three of us had our makeup done on the morning of the wedding and it looked just as perfect by the evening. My trials were just as good! Carys is very reliable, even in thick thick snow she got to me. I would not recommend anyone else. Carrina - Married 19/01/2013
