Nichola has done my makeup on many occasions and I always look forward to how amazing she makes me look and feel.
I wouldn’t have used anyone else on my wedding day. She is extremely kind and polite and listens to what you want and her skills are amazing - particularly Halloween makeup I have seen her do. I have done, and will continue to recommend Nichola to anyone looking for a makeup artist for any special occasion.

Wow wow wow Nichola is one amazing lady! I had lost all faith in makeup artists until I found her!
What an amazing job she had done at my wedding yesterday.  We all looked stunning, my bridesmaids were absolutely gorgeous and my mum was beautiful but most of all she made me still look like me but 1000x better!
So from the bottom of my heart thank you so much for making our day with our makeup.  I would recommend you to anyone I speak to!
It also helps you are a lovely lovely lady.
Thank you again so much XxX

I used Nichola for my wedding makeup and she was brilliant. She knew exactly the look I wanted and I was so pleased on the day. Nichola uses great products, I even added some into my own makeup bag! She also did the makeup for some of my wedding party and they were equally thrilled. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
