Serena did my makeup for a night out. Absolutely LOVED it. It lasted all night, looked flawless and I felt great. Bubbly, friendly yet very professional. The best combination- Talis Ashe

Serena did my makeup on my wedding day and it was amazing. My makeup lasted all day and everyone commented on how nice it looked. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!- Nada Horn

Serena is a true professional but somehow manages to make you feel like you have known her for years & because of this you know instantly you can trust her, tbh she just gets it. She got me completely. I was nervous as I have rosacea & spotty skin but Serena worked her magic & I looked  amazing. My makeup was still in place looking perfect at midnight in what had been 34 degrees heat! I can’t recommend her enough, best MUA ever & only wish she loved around the corner from me because everyone need a bit of Serena in their lives – Emma Bill

I asked Arabella to be the make-up artist for my wedding day in September. She applied make-up for my mother and bridesmaids as well as my own and we were all delighted with the outcome. The effect was exactly what each of us had hoped for and she was sensitive to our individual requirements. Not only was our make-up completely spot-on for the light and photographs of the day, but she was also a delight to have involved in my wedding morning; very efficient and flexible, making sure that everyone was happy and everything ran on schedule. She was even able to assist when my hair did not quite go to plan and was completely cool, calm and collected about helping out when this was above and beyond her call of duty. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Arabella was fantastic to work with from the very first contact. I asked for an initial trial six months before the wedding because I was concerned about finding the right person for the job: I was quite particular about how I wanted to look on my wedding day – unlike a lot of brides I wanted to look ‘done up’, I wanted my skin to be super-matte despite its oily tendencies and I wanted my hair to be voluminous and curly despite being poker straight. My sister’s requirements weren’t much easier….but Arabella was up for the challenge and I can honestly say, that girl can work miracles!

Arabella

Hair and Makeup Covers Surrey, Hampshire, West Sussex and London

Arabella trained in Make-up and Prosthetics for the Performing Arts at London College of Fashion. She has worked as a make-up artist at London Fashion Week, Time Out Magazine, the National Theatre, and on the film Layer Cake. Arabella is a fully accredited MAC make-up artist and has also worked for the well known luxury beauty boutique Space NK. She now works as a freelance make-up artist specialising in bridal make-up and hair.

Arabella is a great believer in individual needs and attention to detail. No two jobs are ever the same. She has a diverse skillset which has come from a wide range of work experience: from working on film sets such as Layer Cake to working one-to-one with brides.

I want to thank you for doing such a magnificent job both with the hair and make up of us all for the wedding on Saturday.  Sarah looked stunning right through and both bridesmaids didn’t have a hair out of place for the entire event. As for me, well my hair still had some “puff” in it this morning so I might need to be having a word with my present hairdresser!!  Your professionalism and caring nature makes you a natural for this job.  You listened to what each one of us said, looked at our pictures and did as was requested and for one so young, its a great attribute.  You have flair and plenty of style and your unflappability (if there is such a word) made the whole thing a pleasure on what could have been a very fraught day.

Sarah was so pleased she found you to do the most important job on her most special of days and I know she will be writing to thank you on her return from honeymoon –Love, Sheila (MOTB).

Thank you so much Stevie & Olivia for doing such a fantastic job on mine and my bridesmaids bridal hair and makeup. From the trial to the day itself you were lovely company and knew exactly the look I wanted for myself and the girls. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend –Emma xxx.

Where do I begin!
From the beginning until the end you were amazing! Consistently patient and kind throughout my thousands of questions. Thinking back now, I did message you constantly with queries and changes. But not once did you make me feel like I was a nuisance. I’m so thankful for how special you made me feel!!!

I felt amazing on the day and not a single person didn’t comment on how great I looked particularly my make up, as it was flawless and stayed put ‘bulletproof’ , exactly as you said it would. The quality is immortalised in my photos and I cherish that dearly. I think that day truly is the best I have ever looked and felt.

Also can I say, I don’t think my getting ready that morning would have been as fun without you and the fact that you spent extra time helping us get dressed!!!

Being somewhat nervous on my special day, it was great to be in the hands of such a  professional and friendly makeup artist. You made me  look and feel absolutely amazing. I really appreciate all your help and kindness on my day

On our wedding day you and your team were so completely brilliant. My six (not easily pleased) bridesmaids were all delighted with their hair and make-up and I was over the moon. You made us look like super gorgeous versions of ourselves and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. Our hair and make-up also looked great throughout the day and still looked amazing after a long session on the dance floor – I’m not sure how you did it but you definitely worked some magic!  But as with the trial it was also just such a pleasure working with you. On a morning that could have been quite stressful, you made us all feel so calm and relaxed (and glamorous!) – Helen
