  • 5* I am ever so grateful for the great work Rhiannon did for myself and the girls, and most importantly my mum's make up too! We all felt very pretty and the style and colour was adapted to suit each of us perfectly. I'm looking forward to getting the pictures from the wedding and will definitely be back in touch for future occasions. Thanks again, Nadine xxx

  • 5* I booked Rhiannon for my wedding in July and she was AMAZING! Loads of people commented on how brilliant the make up looked and we all felt gorgeous. Rhiannon is just so lovely; you feel completely relaxed and at ease with her. Rhiannon was fabulous with our flower girl too, she made her feel totally involved and offers a lovely service to allow little ones a mini makeover to join in. I'm now trying to think of any excuse at all to get my make up done professionally again!!! Thank you Rhiannon, you are a complete star xxx

  • 5* Rhi did my wedding make-up and I cannot praise her enough. My make-up was flawless and stayed perfect the whole day. From the moment she came to do the trial I knew I had made the right choice. On the day she kept me calm and composed, and wasn't flustered by the photographer taking pictures around us. The end product was absolutely amazing from the way she matched my awkward skin tone perfectly, banished the perpetual dark circles around my eyes and the contouring that helpe...d me channel my inner Kim Kardashian! I have never been so comfortable in my own skin, I looked and felt incredible. Even my dad commented on how natural and elegant my make-up was and he almost never notices things like that. Even at 2am when we called it a night my make-up stayed put - eye lashes and all! I couldn't find a single fault with the work she did and the level of service I received. As an animal rights fanatic I really appreciated Rhi'a use of cruelty free products on my special day. Thank you so much for making my day so perfect!

  • 5* Rhiannon did mine and my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding on 7th November and did a fantastic job! She was very professional and made everyone feel at ease. My makeup stayed put all day and looked absolutely amazing! She did the best smoky eyes I've ever seen! The bridesmaids loved their makeup too and even my mum who never wears make up loved her new look! Even my dad noticed which is saying something! I loved my makeup trial too as it was a great opportunity for me to see what I liked and Rhiannon suggested a few different looks for me and was happy for me to try out a few, but I loved the first look so much I didn't need to try anything else! Thank you so much I don't look half dead in my photos for a change xx

  • 5* Rhiannon was recommended to me by a friend to do my wedding make up and I'm so pleased she was. From initially speaking to Rhiannon she was lovely and answered all of my questions. On the day she done my make, my bridesmaids and the mam's too. She took the time to make sure we were all comfortable and loved our make up. I loved my make up and it lasted all day. I received lots of complements too. I would defiantly use Rhiannon again and would recommend her to anybody without hesitation.
