Excellent and a pleasure

Maria is absolutely fantastic, she did my bridal make up for myself and my bridesmaids, I’m not a very confident girl but when I looked in the mirror at my make up I can safely say I felt beautiful 😍 Not only is Maria and excellent make up artist but she is also such a lovely person who made our experience a pleasure, Maria will be my make up artist going forward 🥰

Very Professional

Maria was just lovely & so professional & helpful from my first enquiry to my Bridal Make-up Trial to the morning of the wedding when she did my wedding party of 5 including me (bride), my mom, sister, niece & sister-in-law and nothing was too much bother . . . I would highly recommend Maria for any bride-to-be and wish every success with her new Salon business Venture.

Maria was all around amazing to work with!

Maria was amazing to work with. Not only was she versatile in the styles of make-up she did, but she was able to take my preferences and tailor the make-up to what I liked. She was also extremely flexible and responsive regarding makeup trials. I was extremely happy with what she did on the big day!

Maria was extremely easy and helpful to work with. She gave loads of tips and advice during the makeup trial and was very flexible to any changes needed. On the day she was good fun to be around and added to the excitement with her enthusiasm. Thank you for all you did.

Highly recommend Maria

Maria is an excellent makeup artist and very professional and warm. She was fantastic from first contact to the day of my wedding and really made me feel comfortable. I have mature, sensitive skin with alot of redness and Maria took time and care to get to know what works for me. She tried different products and was able to achieve the coverage I need but still creating the natural, fresh makeup look I was hoping for. The makeup was gorgeous and lasted very well on the day. Maria was also a fun, kind, and warm person to have there on my wedding morning and I was delighted she was part of our day. I highly recommend her to any bride!

A joy to have on your day!

Maria from Allure was such a delight to have as my makeup artist. Easy going, fun and professional, she made the process so seamless. She was attentive during the makeup trial with the look I was going for and when I asked for a last minute start time on the wedding morning, she was flexible and accommodating. A joy to work with and would highly recommend (she put me at ease all morning).

A dream to work with

From the moment I had first contact with Maria she was such a pleasure! I booked her for my wedding makeup and was certain I had found the right person after the makeup trial. In the months before the wedding she gave me great advice on makeup and skincare, and she uses the best products. She was so attentive and listened to exactly what me and my bridal party wanted to achieve the perfect look so that we felt happy and confident on the wedding day. Not only is she great at what she does, she was also such a great addition on the morning of the wedding, she was so professional, she had everything under control, she was so lovely and fun, I can't recommend her highly enough!

Wedding Day Make Up

Maria did such a great job on make up for myself and my four bridesmaids! She is a lovely, kind and chatty person and she put us all at ease with her bubbly and calm personality. The bridal make up was really natural and I was really pleased with it! Maria also made me a little personal bag with top up lipstick and powder, which was fantastic, as it was an exact match and this saw me through to the evening. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Talented and down to earth

Maria is not only talented at what she does but is genuinely a lovely person. She is down to earth but remains professional and is so good at what she does. The morning of our wedding Maria did makeup for me; the Bride, my two bridesmaids and both mother of bride and mother of the groom. Having five people did not phase her at all and she did everyone's makeup to their liking, creating beautiful natural-looking looks. Maria worked so well alongside the hairdressers and photographer. Not only was she absolutely talented and able to speak easily and freely with everyone on the morning but she also brought a calming air to the space, providing nice tips and reassurance when anxiety was creeping in. Maria is now my go to person for any future makeup, tan and brow needs!

The best....

I had the best experience with Maria from the very first enquiry email until she finished my make up on my wedding day. She is professional and experienced and so personable. She was a wonder with all ages from 26 to 72!My wedding party and I all loved our make up and it lasted all day into the early hours! I can't recommend her enough.
