I was delighted to have Karen as my MUA on my wedding day. She did my make up, my bridesmaid and my mother. My mother and I both went for a natural look while my bridesmaid went for a more glam style - all 3 of us were so happy with how we looked. The make up photographed really well and lasted for the day. I am not used to wearing a lot of make up and Karen listened to my concerns and made sure I had a natural look that I was comfortable with. She was a pleasure to deal with overall, very responsive and flexible in the run up to the day. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Karen was absolutely brilliant on our wedding day. She did make up for me, my two bridesmaids and my mam. I did a trial with her beforehand which was great as it gave me the chance to give an input. She was so professional and calm on the wedding day, which is exactly what I needed with wedding morning nerves.I did not have to touch up my make up all day, even after an outdoor wedding in the sun and loads of dancing!! Highly recommend!!

Karen was great! During my makeup trial she encouraged me to give my input so that my look was exactly what I wanted. Between then and my big day she answered all the questions I had. On my wedding day she did my makeup, my mum’s and the 3 girls in my bridal party. She was so friendly and chatty she fit right in with our relaxed atmosphere. I was delighted with my look and it held up and looked fab all day.

Karen was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She really listened to what I wanted and absolutely delivered! Bridesmaids and sisters, who are all as different as chalk and cheese, were just as delighted. They all got exactly what they wanted. The happiest may have been the person she gave a fake-makeover to, the 4 year old flower girl whose day was made when Karen invited her to the make up chair! She was so calm and professional on the morning, highly recommend!! 5*

Aww Jess your review really made me smile. Your little niece was so cute patiently waiting for her turn to have a little bit of makeup. She was adorable. I'm delighted you all felt wonderful. It was a lovely morning working with you all. Such a fun group of ladies . It genuinely was my pleasure to work with you all, you were the coolest bride all through the planning stages and on the morning too. You looked stunning ! Congratulations again to you and your new husband and Happy 1st Married Christmas to you both . Lots of love Karen x

Karen from the Make Up Genie was second to none. She was very easy to work with and got on well with the whole wedding party. She put everyone at ease immediately. Her selection of make up and very obvious knowledge was outstanding. She is very calming and gives you her full time and attention. Nothing was too much to ask for. I would gladly recommend The Make Up Genie and if i have any future occassions that require make up i will most definately be using her again.
Response from The Makeup Genie
Aww thank you Fiona for writing this lovely review. I really enjoyed working with you and the girls for your wedding in July. You were all so much fun that day. I'm delighted you were so happy with your makeup and the service I provided. It really was my pleasure and I hope you had a brilliant wedding day in your stunning Marquee. I look forward to working with you again in the future. Lots of love Karen xx

Karen from the makeup genie was fantastic from the get go, during my makeup trial she listened to what I wanted, offered suggestions and had a beautiful bubbly personality. On the day, she arrived in plenty of time to ensure we were all happy and she was extremely patient with any changes we wanted. I'd definitely recommend karen, for any bride that wants things perfect
Response from The Makeup Genie
Thanks so much Marjorie for taking the time to leave a review. I hope the travel back to Australia wasn't too long. It was such a great morning looking after you and your bridesmaids. Everyone was so friendly and fun not to mention beautiful. I am delighted to know you were so happy with your wedding makeup. You looked divine when I was leaving. Best wishes to you and your new husband Karen x

I would highly recommend the makeup genie for any bride to be. At the make up trial she was very patient and will make sure you are 100% happy and she also gave me skincare advice too. On the day on the wedding she made everyone feel relaxed and our make up was fab and even though it was a hot day it lasted well into the night. I will definitely be booking Karen again for upcoming events as she is a great make up artist
Response from The Makeup Genie

You looked gorgeous. I hope to work with you again in the future too. Best wishes to you and your new husband. Love Karen x

Karen has done my make up many times for many different occasions but most recently for a wedding I was attending. Karen is so professional, reliable, flexible and a brilliant make up artist. She always listens to the kind of look I'd like and doesn't stop until she achieves it..... nothing is too much trouble. I couldn't recommend highly enough.
Response from The Makeup Genie
Thank you Tina for your lovely review. I always enjoy working with you for your events and I'm delighted you would be happy to recommend me to others. It's lovely having regular clients and knowing they are happy each time I do their makeup means alot to me. Looking forward to working with you for your next big event soon, Karen x

Karen is without doubt a very talented and professional make-up artist. She puts you at ease and really listens to your ideas. Karen gave great presents wedding skin care tips also. As someone who has a lot of allergies to makeup I found that she really took time to find what was right for me as a bride. I will be using karen again for future events.
Response from The Makeup Genie

The banter was great she's truly professional did all of us so effortlessly x

I can't recommend The Make Up Genie enough. Her make up was flawless and gave me the natural look I wanted. She seemed to instinctively know what I wanted, my make up was perfect all day and lasted well into the early hours. If your looking for someone who brings professionalism with a smile, Karen is the one for you.
Response from The Makeup Genie
Thanks Mary for your lovely review. Im delighted you felt your makeup was exactly what you wanted and that it lasted all day and all night too. You and your family were so lovely to work with that day. Smiles all round and lots of laughter too. Karen xx

I was so lucky to have had the pleasure of Karen The Make up Genie doing my wedding make up and my bridal party and my mothers make up back in July 2011...Karen was so professional and a real lady. During the trial she had offered lots of advice re skin care and lipsticks etc. My make up didn't even need to be retouched throughout the day apart from lippy....as the years have gone on I have had Karen do my make up for both my daughters christenings and my family members have had her do theirs also. I also had a fantastic make up lesson from Karen when I was on my first maternity leave and I can say it was one of the best investments in myself. She came to my house and went through my products and re taught me how to do my make up (properly and faster since there was a mini me) I'm not one for heavy make up and I have always managed to look youthful and dewy thanks to Karen and I always feel a million dollars afterwards.
Response from The Makeup Genie
Thanks Theresa for that very sweet review. You and your sisters are like family at this stage and I have loved working with you all each and every time. Its been my pleasure looking after you for your wedding and the christenings and the lesson too. Im looking forward to working with you all again next week. Im delighted you are so happy with your makeups. Its always lovely to hear my clients were so happy. Karen xx
