by Lauren McLay


“Lauren is quite frankly fabulous! At first I was nervous about getting a make up artist for my wedding. I’d had my make up done at counters and never been that impressed, I didn’t want the usual natural makeup most brides go for, but I also didn’t want to look like I was in drag. From our first conversation I knew Lauren was perfect, she was always very quick to reply to messages and made me feel like a friend rather than a client. My trial was great and she nailed what I wanted first time. On the day of my wedding she was incredible, totally put everyone at ease, worked brilliantly with my hair dresser and even squeezed in an extra bridesmaid last minute. All of my girls, mums and my makeup were flawless and lasted right til the very end. Everyone was so pleased and she was the perfect addition to our day. I am now finding as many excuses as I can to get my make up done! Thank you Lauren!xxx”

“Lauren did my wedding make up and she was great. She managed to do mine, my Mum’s and nine bridesmaids all in record speed and even styled my sister’s hair last minute, which was so helpful. I loved the look she went for, we discussed a natural look and I was so happy with it. I wanted to wow my Husband and he was very impressed! My make-up lasted all day, even though it was the hottest day of the year and we started early (Wedding at 12), and my Mum and Bridal party looked stunning. Lauren is knowledgeable and was lovely to have around, a very nice addition to a ‘getting ready’ party! She is a great make-up artist who is versatile I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so.”

“Lauren has done my makeup for a number of events including my wedding day, some big nights out such as my hen do and a few girly get togethers. She always takes the time to listen to my needs and works hard to create a look that suits me and the occasion. Each time I’ve come away feeling very special and like a gazillions dollars!
Lauren is quite simply a wizard with a magic makeup brush for a wand!! She is professional, enthusiastic and creative while ensuring that she makes you feel relaxed and looked after. She is also bags of fun and one of the nicest girls you’ll meet. Thanks for making me feel beautiful Lozza…and please can you move in with me?”

Claire Stevens – Bridal/Occasion Hair & Makeup



“Lauren is, quite simply, a miracle worker. From creating numerous, versatile ideas for the wedding make up for me and my 4 bridesmaids, to a preening session post-birth for my first big night out, she has this undeniable talent for putting her clients at total ease whilst she transforms them into glamour-pusses! This girl is a smokey-eye and contour queen! I just don’t feel dressed up unless she’s done my hair and make-up before an event. If I could put her in my pocket and carry her around with me everywhere, I would. Her skills make me feel my very best!”

Sadie Walker – Bridal/Occasion Hair & Makeup



“Lauren was the best choice I could have ever made for mine and my bridal parties make. She struck the perfect balance of being bubbly and fun on the day adding to the buzz of the morning but allowed us to all get on with our preparations. She completely took on board what we all wanted but was equally as helpful with suggesting the odd tweak, drawn from her knowledge of make up for photographs and the longevity of our make up. She was a pleasure to have around and a big part of our day. She gave the best advice “you don’t want to look like someone else , you want to look the best version of yourself” I can’t recommend her enough; it’s just a shame I don’t have her to get me ready every single morning!”

Hannah Cook – Bridal/Occasion Hair & Makeup



“I literally can’t recommend Lauren enough. All of my friends, my Mum, my work colleagues – you name it, I’ve recommended them to her – and they love her too! Lauren listens, and understands exactly the sort of thing that you are looking for. Whether it’s a beautiful natural look you want, or vampy glam, Lauren knows exactly how to make it work for your face shape and style. She is also incredibly talented with hair and can turn her hand to so many different styles.  If I had the money, Lauren would be living with me – that’s how good she is!

Joanne Hurl- Bridal/Occasion Hair & Makeup



“Lauren did my makeup for my wedding on October 1st. It was quite last minute as I had been let down by someone else. She was good at keeping in contact and as soon as I met her she put me at ease. She was friendly and it was really fun having my make up trial with her. On the day she was professional and did a wonderful job. I was really conscious about not having too much make up on and looking myself – she did it perfectly and it looked beautiful and natural. The pictures look fantastic too. Definitely recommend her to everyone! Thank you!”
