Bridal Testimonials

Clare understands that make-up can be a very personal thing and finding the right makeup artist is key, here are some recent comments from lovely customers.

“If you are looking for an exceptionally experienced amiable makeup artist who will literally transform you on your wedding day then look no further than Clare Pinkney.  I received so many compliments on my makeup the day of my wedding – she worked wonders on me! Clare is also an expert in knowing what looks good on camera and true to her reputation my photographs came out looking absolutely amazing.  I discussed various colours and options with her. She guided me (in a way that only a true experienced professional could) into what would look best for the visual impact I was looking for on my day.

On the day of my wedding she showed up early smiling with excitement! Her fantastic personality and caring nature instantly eased my nerves. She is incredibly talented, patient, kind and professional.  My husband couldn’t take his eyes off of me and still continues to say what a wonderful job Clare did on me! I cannot recommend Clare enough – in fact I am going back to see her shortly with my mum for lessons!  Quite honestly, engaging her services will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make for your special event”

Dear Clare,

I just wanted to thank you so so so much for everything you did that made my wedding day so wonderful. I loved my hair and makeup and looking like that made me feel absolutely radiant on the day! Getting ready with you, Hanna and the girls made my wedding morning and I can’t thank you enough.

Dear Clare,

Thank you for making me feel so beautiful on my big day, I loved my make-up and it lasted perfectly all night long. Thank you also for making my mum feel so special and she too loved her make-up. We also all benefited

From the calm and relaxing atmosphere you created in our home. Finally thank you for assisting me with my veil. It was so secure, even when my bridesmaid stepped on it walking down the aisle.

Dear Clare,

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for the Amazing make-up on my Wedding Day. The bridesmaids and my mum looked absolutely gorgeous and everyone commented on how lovely we all looked on the day.

Dear Clare,

Thank you very much for your fantastic make up that you did for me for my wedding on Saturday 28th September. Thank you for coming to my parents’ house, and doing my makeup, really appreciated your calming influence and for surviving mad dog and other family members!!My makeup was amazing – so many people said how good it was and how it lasted until we were the last people to go to bed after all the dancing and catching up with guests! Really can’t thank you enough for your time and energy. You will be pleased to know that I am a converted “cleanse and polish” girl, and use my lip-gloss and lipstick every day at work, with a bit of eyeliner and eye shadow!

Heather Metcalfe – Ashtead, Surrey

Hi Clare

I just wanted to thank you so so much for your wonderful make up service on Thursday. Everyone was saying how beautiful my makeup and hair were and I felt so confident walking down the aisle. Looking at the photos, I’m so glad I took your advice and stayed with the lighter eyeliner because my make up was just perfect and I am so glad I didn’t overdo it. My mum and the bridesmaids looked so beautiful too and it was so nice to see my mum being pampered.  I didn’t have to worry about my make up all day and it looked amazing even until late during the evening.

Jo Corrocan – Walton On Thames, Surrey

Dear Clare and Martin,

I would like to say thank you so much for all your hard work on the 23rd, you both did wonderful jobs on both Lucy and I.  It was so nice spending the morning of such a special day with the both of you, Martin with your wit and humour and you, Clare, with your tips, fun and calmness.  I know I also speak for Lucy that we couldn’t have spent the morning with nicer people.  Thank you so much.

Dear Clare,

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to write. I wanted to thank you for the beautiful make-up you did for my wedding day. It was such a joy to have you there, you are such a calming influence and it felt like I had a friend with me rather than a stranger. The make-up looked fab and on everyone, mine stayed on all day and the eyeliner for 2 days!!!!! You gave me exactly the look I wanted and I could have not been happier.

Dear Clare

Thank you so much for coming over to Weybridge and giving us a fantastic make up lesson. I thoroughly enjoyed every second, and I know my bridesmaids did too. The lesson has proven to be very beneficial and we are constantly practising, so by the time my wedding comes around, I will be able to do you justice!!

Bick Chang – Weybridge, Surrey

Dear Clare,

I know my mum has already said thank you but I also wanted to say a “massive” thank you. You made me feel like a million dollars and the girls were so happy with their make-up too. We all looked stunning (even if I do say so myself!) I have recommended you to a few friends that have recently got engaged so I hope they get in touch. You were so professional and for that I cannot thank you enough. You made me feel completely comfortable and your assistant gave the best mini facial massages too!

Katie Drew – Richmond, Surrey

Thank you so much for coming to my house to do our wedding make-up. It was a great treat for us and we were all delighted with the results. Pippa looked absolutely stunning. The make-up was perfect, enhancing her features but without a heavy made up look. The bridesmaids and I also felt that you had achieved exactly the right look for each of us and the make-up stayed on throughout the day and evening. Thank you again for helping to make it such a wonderful day. Best Wishes Mrs D Steele – April 2012
