Honestly? I’ve no idea when it comes to make-up! I’m in my mid thirties and have no idea what some products are or what they do! Speaking to my AMAZING Wedding photographers, they insisted I got in touch with Jess. “Na I’ll just do my own make-up on the day” I thought. My Goodness. I am SO glad I rang. Best call I made!
My sisters (Who were my bridesmaids), my Mother and I were all slightly apprehensive when Jess popped over  for the make-up trial. None of us had ever had anyone do anything to our faces before and we’re not ladies who wear heavy makeup.
Jess however immediately set us all at ease. She didn’t approach us with a list of looks or what one should do for a ‘wedding look’. Over a brew, we laughed about slug brows and terrible 90’s eye shadows and she took the time to understand what worked with our personalities, style, but also something that we would be comfortable with.
I knew then that I had made the right choice asking for her to be part of the big day and told her to “do what she liked”. We went for something fairly natural which complimented beautifully the classic style of my vintage lace dress, vintage rolled hair and meadow flower bouquet.
She also took me through products she used as well as sending me links in case I wanted to use them to touch anything up on the day or have them for future use. However on the day, I didn’t feel it was necessary which also is testament to her skill and the quality of products she uses.
Even now I look back at our wedding photos and think “wow, my face looks ace!!!”, and I never feel with my chubby, dimply cheeks I ever feel that photogenic.
Having your makeup done for your wedding day is such a personal thing. Jess made me feel a like million dollars on that day. And even on the morning getting ready, when there was a heavy downpour, the electric went and gusts of wind blew everything over, she kept us positive, kept us calm and made me feel beautiful.
I honestly couldn’t recommend Jess highly enough. She is incredibly skilled and talented at what she does, and her kind and caring nature would cure anyone’s pre-wedding nerves. She’s simply amazing!

I just wanted to say a massive thank-you to you for doing my make-up. It meant the world to me!!! I have never felt so pretty and confident as I did on Saturday. The make-up lasted so so well despite the rain and the ceilidh dancing. I had such utter confidence in your abilities following the trial that it took a lot of stress out of preparing for the big day. On Saturday I really enjoyed having it all done and I loved talking to you throughout.

Your talent with make-up is unbelievable!!! I felt so beautiful and flawless and at no moment did I feel ‘caked-in make-up’ as they say. You made doing it all look effortless but I can appreciate the precision and skill it takes to achieve the results you do – All in all, I just wanted you to know that I couldn’t recommend you highly enough and I’m so thankful you could be part of my big day!!

I would highly recommend Jess for your bridal party’s make-up. Jess did the make-up for me (the Bride), my bridesmaid and my Mum. Right from the moment I first made contact with Jess, she went above and beyond my expectations. Jess was extremely professional throughout. She was easy to contact and kept in touch throughout the process.

I had full confidence in her abilities. On the morning of the wedding she was patient and a calming presence amongst the chaos! My make-up lasted right through until the end of the night and I was delighted with the look. Thank you so much, Jess. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone! xxx

Wedding Guest – Saturday 27th April 2019

Had an amazing experience with Jess as my makeup artist, would highly recommend! She came to do mine and a friend’s wedding guest makeup and she couldn’t have done a better job! Honestly felt amazing and the look lasted all day and until the end of a long night (despite lots of happy tears and dancing!). Jess was also willing to talk through what products she was using and made sure all the products suited our skin types. Thank you Jess.

Jess did my bridal makeup along with my two bridesmaids and mum on 7.12.19. I cannot recommend her enough. My bridesmaids looked stunning, their make-up was just as I imagined and fit in perfect with the theme of my wedding.
I was complimented all day for my make-up and it lasted until midnight, despite the constant laughing, crying and dancing! I felt amazing and Jess really made my day that little bit more special. Honestly cannot recommend enough- in fact currently trying to find a reason to have it done again!

Thank you Jess xx

Jess was the makeup artist for my wedding in April, and I was soooo pleased she was! She fitted right into the morning and worked with my hairdresser to ensure everything ran smoothly. I asked for natural makeup and that is exactly what I got. I was comfortable throughout the day and felt beautiful! People kept commenting on how fab my eye makeup was too, and I’m amazed at how well the eyelashes stayed on….even after tears! My bridesmaids also looked gorgeous and have since recommended Jess to others who have asked. Thanks so much Jess, you come highly recommended!
