What my clients SAY-

Sophie did my make up on my wedding day and did an amazing job. She created a very natural but glamorous look which made me feel amazing on the day! The make up literally didn't move all day which is a miracle for me with oily skin!! Great communication throughout the whole process and Sophie is just a lovely person to be around. I felt absolutely beautiful for my big day so thank you very much Sophie xx

I booked Sophie for my wedding in August 2017 and it was amazing she made me feel like a princess and I got lots of lovely compliments from guests throughout. She created the perfect 1950's vintage makeup style without it being too heavy on my skin and it lasted all day and evening. She is a complete professional and I will be recommending her to everyone! Thank you so much, Sophie! xxx

Your warm and friendly personality made me feel instantly comfortable with you. At the make up trial you seemed to know exactly what suited me which was different to what I was used to but I loved it! On the day you made me feel so at ease and made it totally stress-free. I cannot recommend you enough, I know without you the morning would not have run as smoothly as it did.
I had my make up ready to apply during the day for touch ups but I can honestly say that I didn't use any of it at all.

My make up stayed totally flawless for 24 hours! Which meant that I didn't spend any time away from our guests to reapply.

I would definitely recommend Sophie she's certainly worth every penny!

Sophie did the makeup for me, my mum and bridesmaids on my wedding day. Sophie is a lovely girl and provides a very friendly and professional service. We were all really pleased with how the makeup looked and felt and Sophie listened to what each person had asked for to get them their perfect look. I had the HD airbrush foundation and it lasted all day and felt so light and soft on my skin. Sophie arrived on time to the venue and made sure everyone was ready on time. I would definitely recommend x

Natalya Vavn

Sophie did my makeup for my wedding day and I could not be happier with the service I received. We had a trial beforehand and she really took the time to get the look right for me, and spoke through what makeup she was applying and why and delivered exactly what I said I wanted- she is super talented at what she does! On my wedding day she was on time and prepared and had noted down the look/products from the trial so it would be exactly the same. She worked around me and everything that was going off on the morning and really took the time and care doing my wedding makeup. I felt amazing with the makeup she did which is so important on a brides big day! The makeup lasted the whole day and everyone commented on how beautiful the makeup was. I would 100% use Sophie again and I'm so happy I found her to do my makeup on such a special day x

Amelia Hooper 

Sophie did the make-up for my wedding, which included seven bridesmaids and three other members of the wedding party. Sophie was extremely professional from the start, from the initial questionnaire about my wedding, through to the make-up trial and the big day itself. She listened carefully to each person regarding the look that they wanted to achieve and everyone felt very happy with the end result. We all chose to have air-brushed make-up applied, which looked and felt amazing. We were all left feeling thoroughly glamourous and pampered

Stephanie Marris

Sophie simply brilliant! Met Sophie at a wedding fair a few years back and I would highly recommend her for any make up occasion.

I used Sophie for my wedding last October she was excellent, made my bridal party feel relaxed, ensured all make up was perfect and all the girls were happy.

I have recommended Sophie a few times now to other brides to be which have been equally as happy with there make up as I have.

Thank you for everything.

Sophie is a wonderful make-up artist! I absolutely loved my make-up on my wedding day and I know my bridesmaids and mum felt the same as well. She uses a vast variety of products and has an amazing choice of colours from all different brands. We particularly loved the airbrushing. This created a flawless finish and felt so light on the skin. Perfect for the Big Day! And best of all our make-up stayed on the whole time (even through the tears!). Thank you so much Sophie! We will definitely be recommending you to friends and family and using your services again in the future

Jo Hemmings - Bride 

Sophie is incredibly professional, and really knows what she is talking about!
She did makeup for my mother, 3 bridesmaids and myself 3 weeks ago and she did an absolutely amazing job! I felt like a beautiful bride and the job she did with my makeup made feel confident and it lasted the entire day looking flawless. 
During our trial we tried lots of different looks to find one that felt right for me and matched my personality and style. If you are looking for a makeup artist then I definitely recommend Sophie! Thank you so much for your advice and guidance and for making me feel confident and beautiful! x

Shona Hawkes - Bride 

Sophie did a make up trial and my make up for my wedding. During my make up trial Sophie was fantastic and very patient when I wanted to try different styles. I don't wear lots of make up normally so Sophie was great when I was asking make up related questions. The make up on my wedding day was flawless and stayed on all day (even after hours of dancing!). Would recommend Sophie to anyone.

I worked with Sophie on a 60's fashion shoot with the photographer Deborah Selwood. 
Sophie was impeccably competent and she did the makeup for the shoot to an incredibly high standard. Particularly eyeliner; we did three particular looks of which were very focused on the complexity of eyeliner. 
I'd love to work with Sophie again. I really enjoyed her company x
