Claire did my make up for my wedding (as well as a trial and for my bridesmaids). She was excellent - the service before was just so warm and she was so accommodating to our requests. Completely flexible and professional, I felt very comfortable deferring decisions to Claire and also that my voice would be taken into account. Thank you so much! I also went to Claire's Little Room of Calm to have a facial and it was the most relaxing experience; again very professional and luxurious. Fab value for a highly professional facial therapist and make up artist - Hayley

Warm and highly professional

120% would recommended . Claire did my wedding make up as-well as my 4 bridesmaids and mum, and they all loved their make up and looked stunning. Claire made me feel like the best version of myself, I felt confident and comfortable- The make up lasted the whole day & survived lots of dancing!! Claire has a very calming and relaxing presence to her, and it was so lovely having her around. Couldn’t recommend enough!! Xx - Kate

The makeup lasted the whole day

A huge thank you for everything you did for my wedding! You were an absolute joy to have there, and I loved my make-up! Thanks so much for your endless patience!! - Sarah

You were an absolute joy and I loved my makeup

I first met Claire when she did my makeup as a bridesmaid for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding in 2017. Fast forward 18 months and I knew I wanted Claire to do my bridal makeup, too! As well as her incredibly calming and professional presence, I really appreciate Claire’s approach to makeup, in terms of helping you ‘still feel like you but just that best ever version’. For someone who doesn’t wear lots of makeup everyday, this more natural look/feel was important to me. On the day, my makeup was exactly as I wanted it and lasted all day/evening, and really helped me feel extra special. I would (and have) recommended Claire over again to anyone looking for a talented, friendly and approachable makeup artist - Katherine

Incredibly calming and professional presence

Claire did my makeup and my Mum’s for my wedding last week. I had an amazing morning getting ready, great fun, very relaxed and the end result was awesome. I felt a million dollars AND my make up stayed put ALL day despite it being rather warm! I would highly recommend Claire to anyone wanting to feel special on an important day. Claire is incredibly knowledgeable on skincare as well as make up and I loved that she helped me feel very natural. THANK YOU Claire! - Rebecca

Incredibly knowledgable on skincare as well as makeup

Choosing Claire to do my bridal party make up was a no brainer. My sister had tried to book her for her wedding the year before mine, but she's understandably in high demand and wasn't free. I'm so glad she was already on my radar when it came to my big day, and that I got in nice and early with my booking. I certainly didn't come across anyone else who mastered the fresh and natural look quite like her. But her make up skills are only the half of it - Claire made the whole process an absolute delight. She is professional in the utmost, accommodating my mind-changing very graciously and she was so perceptive at teasing out what sort of look I wanted. She is a warm, friendly and calming presence to have with you on the big day but also puts so much effort into giving advice in the run up; recommending products or routines that are tailored to you, to get your skin looking it's best. I could not recommend her highly enough - just get in there quick! You really were a total wonder and I'm so grateful for the amazing job you did with me and all my bridesmaids! - Chloe

Her makeup skills are only the half of it

Claire is simply brilliant. She is an extremely skilled make up artist and she was such a kind and calming presence on the morning of my wedding. Claire created wonderful looks for me, my mum and my two bridesmaids. I felt beautiful and my bridal party all looked stunning. Claire even gave my three year old nieces a little sprinkling of fairy dust, which they loved - so cute to see. My trial was so helpful and the advice Claire gave me about my skin went above and beyond. I am also incredibly grateful at how patient Claire was with my indecision over my 'look' for the day - going from one end of the spectrum to the other and a few places in between! I adored my make up on the day and it could not have been more perfect for me. Thank you, Claire! - Caroline

An extremely skilled makeup artist

We all want to look our absolute best on the biggest day of our lives and makeup is one of the most important things to get absolutely right. I initially met Claire at my trial. From this I knew that my bridesmaids and myself were in the best possible hands. On the day it was no easy task. It was an 11 o'clock wedding with 3 bridesmaids and myself to look after. Claire was amazing. We couldn't have looked better and there was time for a massive group hug and a cheeky drink. Claire made me feel so at ease I wish she could have shared the rest of the day with all of us.
Thank you Claire xx - Tracy

We were in the best possible hands

Claire did my wedding makeup a few months ago and I couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience. All the way from initial inquiry to the big day, Claire was just phenomenal. We had a two day wedding- Indian and English and Claire did makeup on both days for all my family, friends and myself. Claire is a master at putting you at ease. She managed the stress and manic of the day with a smile and kept me sane. She was so accommodating on the day with any changes and additions. The make up looked amazing and lasted the whole day! I can’t recommend Claire enough!! She just is the best! - Anu

Claire is a master at putting you at ease

Claire did an amazing job with my bridal makeup. Myself and my mum both had trials previous to the wedding day as I specifically wanted the natural/less is more look! We were both so relaxed with Claire, she really is amazing with her work. I had no doubt I was going to have Claire do myself, mum and my two bridesmaids makeup on the wedding day. Nothing was too much trouble, we all felt very pampered and Claire made the getting ready extra special. I really felt my most beautiful on my special day, thanks to Claire! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a makeup artist! thankyou again Claire xx - Freya

I really felt my most beautiful

Claire did my make up on my wedding day in June and she was amazing. I had so many compliments on my make up - she made me look like a better version of myself and she helped to calm me down on the morning of the big day! - Sophie

So many compliments on my makeup

I don’t let anyone do my make up so I was very apprehensive about finding the right person to do my wedding makeup but I’m so glad I found Claire. She listened to exactly what I wanted and accommodated all my chopping and changing. On the day I felt like a million dollars and everyone told me I looked like a movie star and that was down to Claire. One of my bridesmaids has been a bridesmaid around 8 times and always gets her makeup done for nights out but she was blown away by how good and professional Claire was, thank you for everything - Gemma

I felt like a million dollars

Claire is a hugely talented make-up artist. I booked her for my wedding in May and from the moment I met her I knew I was in safe hands. She is incredibly professional and a really kind person to chat to and be around. Her make-up style is lovely and natural - something I really wanted - she uses the best products to really enhance your features without making you look 'overdone'. We had a great trial and worked through different ideas to get the exact look I was after. She was quick to reply to any emails I sent and patient whenever I changed my mind (I am the most indecisive person in the world!). Plus on the wedding morning she calmly worked through all the bridesmaids make-up to schedule, so we were all ready on time. I had not expected to be a victim of wedding nerves - but some morning rain set me off! Claire could not have been a more calming presence to be around - and so patient putting up with my worrying (the weather was pretty much all I could talk about at that point!). In summary - I can't recommend her enough. Such a lovely person and a brilliant make-up artist. Thank you Claire!! - Catherine

Calm, patient and incredibly professional

Claire was amazing from the very beginning. We had a trial at her house with her very welcoming dog and she helped guide me to decide how I wanted to look on the wedding day. On the day she also had my mum and 5 bridesmaids to manage and everything ran like clockwork. I don’t usually wear a lot of make up so Claire used products that felt so light and helped me to feel like myself only a much more polished version! All of our make up stayed perfectly in place for the whole day!
Claire you made my morning so much easier! I needed your calming influence with my hurricane of bridesmaids! Thank you from the bottom of my heart - Kirsty

Products felt light and helped me to feel like myself

Claire did my wedding make up and my 4 bridesmaids and mums. I had a trial with Claire and she immediately put my mind at ease and talked through all the steps to ensure I got the look I wanted. We tried out several options for foundation because I was particular about coverage and nothing was a problem. On the day Claire was brilliant! She was so calm and this kept us calm. All of our make up looked amazing and stayed on all day and night. I highly recommend Claire for wedding make up she is fab! - Michaela

All our makeup looked amazing

I can’t thank Claire enough for everything leading up to my big day. Mine as well as my bridesmaids and mums make up was amazing, flawless and lasted the whole day without fail!! Not only that but she was great with her advice and help with issues leading up to the day and the facial 2 weeks prior was great and relaxing!! She certainly knows her stuff and helped me get the best skin prior to my wedding. I cannot recommend Claire enough and her professional service is incredible!! - Lauren

She certainly knows her stuff

Just to say a massive thank you for doing a fantastic job in making us wedding and photo ready on our big day! I was so very pleased with the results. I loved the way you incorporated the make-up I would typically wear, and made suggestions based on this and also what you thought would suit. Your attention to detail was fantastic (something very much appreciated by a pedantic lawyer like myself!) and your positive, calming and gently reassuring attitude was just perfect - Rhian

Your attention to detail was fantastic

We just wanted to send a message to say what a pleasure it was to meet you and have you doing our wedding make up. The make up was stunning. Thank you so much for helping to make our day so perfect - Jude and Danielle

The makeup was stunning

Thank you so so much for the amazing job you did on Saturday. Everyone said how perfect my make up looked and I was so happy with it. I just looked like a glowing version of myself, which was exactly what I wanted. I really appreciate your advice and the time you took in getting it just right for me. The bridesmaids and mum looked amazing as well, especially as mum doesn’t usually wear make up and was a bit nervous - Lisa

I just looked like a glowing version of myself

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

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 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

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 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 – Pip

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

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

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 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

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

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

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
