“I received Etain's number from a girl with whom I worked, who as a bridesmaid had her make up done and she could not recommend Etain enough.
For the trial she came to my home and went through some ideas with me but what I really liked was the way she listened to what I had to say and kept me fully informed during the trial on everything she was doing and what products she was using on me. She made a couple of suggestions as well as to colours that I would never normally consider using but which were in fact very striking.
On the morning of the wedding, Etain arrived early amid all the chaos and I have to say that she was an extremely calming influence on everyone (especially me). As there were loads of people fussing and fretting about, it was lovely to have somebody who was not getting flustered and who managed to keep me from getting nervous. She did my bridesmaid's make up as well and she looked simply stunning. Everybody commented to us both how wonderful we looked and I have to say I cannot usually take a compliment but on this occasion I had to agree with them as we both looked amazing!! What was wonderful as well was that Etain told me that the make up would last all day and that all I would have to do was re-touch my lipstick and she was absolutely correct.
I honestly cannot recommend Etain enough myself. She is extremely professional, friendly and courteous and she never presumes that she knows more about what you should look like. All of her suggestions and comments are valid and the whole experience for me was without doubt so pleasant. I have taken on board a lot of what she has said and I have noticed that my make up looks so much better than it did before I met her. Thanks a million!”

"Etain was brilliant for both my trial and my wedding day.She really had a calming and relaxing effect on the household the morning of the wedding as she was so calm and professional.
The make-up was done to perfection and she was also very reasonable price wise. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other brides.

"I found Etain very helpful, with a wide range of products and ideas. We had our trial run a few weeks before the big day and neither myself or my bridesmaid knew what we wanted, but Etain knew what colours would suit our skin tone and our dresses. We knew we were dealing with a true professional when our makeup was put to the test working in a very hot hotel kitchen and didn't slide off! There is always a fear that for makeup to last a long time it must be applied very heavily - Etain is proof that this is not the case. On the wedding day she listened to what we both wanted and came up trumps! I had a very nasty bruise on my arm, which Etain effortlessly managed to camouflage. My bridesmaid has quite sensitive skin and can not use a lot of products, but the reputable products that Etain uses didn't cause her a problem. On the morning of the wedding the house managed to get very hectic with people coming and going. Etain arrived before anybody else and it was so nice to be able to sit down and get straight into, before everyone arrived. It really kept me calm! She was on hand to make sure everything looked okay once the dresses were on and to touch up the lippy. I would have no hesitation in recommending or using Etain again. Your makeup will last all day, will not be too heavy, and you will look fantastic!"
