“Choosing a makeup artist for my wedding was one of my biggest decisions; I wanted to look myself, but on my absolute best day. What attracted me to Arabella's work was how naturally gorgeous she makes her clients look - they each look they beautiful individuals, and not a 'copy and paste' of any popular Instagram look. The trial was both essential and hugely enjoyable - Arabella's home studio is lovely, and as a bit of a makeup geek I loved chatting with her, deciding on a look together, and getting plenty of hints, tips and product recommendations. But it's on the day itself that Arabella's professionalism and good humour was most invaluable. It's likely that your wedding day is the first - and, with a bit of luck, only - day like it that you'll ever experience, so as a bride you're full of neves and excitement. Arabella, on the other hand, has seen it all before: not only will she make you look gorgeous, she'll distract you with great conversation, and provide you with plenty of reassurance. My bridesmaids were so, so happy with their makeup, too - their makeup was not only flawless but suited them to a T. My makeup perfectly completed my dress, hair and overall vibe of the wedding, and kept me looking picture perfect until bedtime. I couldn't recommend Arabella highly enough.”
