I was immediately reassured in our initial chat over the phone, as she understood straight away what I wanted — a fresh, natural look where I still looked and felt like me.
At the make-up trial she did exactly what I had in mind but much better. i was a bit unsure about wearing false eyelashes but went with it anyway, and they looked great in the end. She was great fun and lovely to chat to, and her skill, experience and professionalism put me totally at ease so I had no doubt that she would do a great job on the wedding day.
On the big day she arrived exactly on time and was a cheery, calm presence amid the mayhem.
I never expected I could look so good. I felt radiant and confident and had a brilliant day. The make-up stayed on all day and everyone commented on how beautiful I looked.
Thanks a million, Mikaela, I can’t recommend you highly enough!
