Dear Annette, I just wanted to say thank you so so much!  As you will remember, we not really a make-up wearing family, you took all of that into consideration and ensured that eveyone felt relaxed and totally comfortable. From our trial evening to the day itself, you were an absolute star. All the girls are still raving about you, how friendly and utterly professional you were. From us all – thanks so much for making us Fabulous for one day!!

Aoife & the girls

Annette – she just gets it!


From the first day I met Annette I found her so friendly and warm… with a keen interest in makeup myself we hit it off straight away! Annette both listened to my suggestions and also gave me advise & tips (some of which me and my bridesmaids are still using!) on how to create my perfect look…. being a ‘young’ bride of 26 (and not afraid to say a little particular 🙂 ) I didn’t want to go for the traditional bridal look so Annette spent a lot of time with me discussing and trialling makeup that would bring my entire look together…On the day itself Annette was so patient and an absolute perfectionist… she also had the craic with me and the girls as we got ready! I absolutely LOVED my makeup on the day and my bridesmaids and my Mam looked absolutely fantastic too…. thanks again Annette… you really where the cherry on the top!


Having my makeup done at home on my wedding day by Annette was the best decision for me.Annettes friendly,professional,very calm approach ensured that i was relaxed and i trusted her to give me a natural,elegant yet flawless look.My mother +sisters were also very happy with their makeup,I thought they looked stunning on the day.Alot of our guests did comment on our makeup,Annette really did work her magic and i would definitely reccommend her if you want that perfect look for your special day.  Thank you Annette.


When it came to choosing a makeup artist for my wedding day I couldn’t have chosen a better person than Annette. I loved that she could come to my home on the day of the wedding and for the trial. She listened carefully to what I wanted and also to the bridesmaids and mother of the bride. Annette used Mac makeup on me which I loved as it lasted the whole day of the wedding and had alternatives for my sister whose allergic to MAC. I also got to try out false eyelashes! Annette is so professional and excellent at what she does. She is such a lovely person and I cannot recommend her highly enough!


My bridesmaids and I could not have asked for a more relaxed, fun, and stress-free morning than the one spent with Annette on my wedding day. Not only did she make us look exceptionally beautiful that day, but we had a great time joking and having fun, she made me feel so at ease. Also, right from the beginning Annette spent time to get to know what I wanted at my trial and really listened to what I liked and what look I was hoping to achieve for the wedding. Aside from being a great listener, Annette is incredibly professional and highly skilled at her job. My makeup looked stunning and was flawless and my guests were commenting that it looked just as great at the end of the night 4am, as it did at the church that afternoon (and I was dancing all night and sweating quite a bit, so the fact that my makeup remained intact is a testament to Annette and her magic!). I can honestly say that aside from finding a fabulous makeup artist, I have also found a friend in Annette. I would highly recommend her to any bride! Thanks for everything Annette.

Wedding: 31st May 2013
I recently got married Oct 2014..I had heard about Annette for a long time but when my friend had Annette as the MUP artist for her wedding in 2013 I got the taste first hand of her fabulous work and even though I wasn’t engaged I had her booked in my head for my wedding the following year. I would be very fussy with makeup and products used, and it was an added bonus that Anette uses only the best ie Mac, Estée Lauder. Because I had her apply my makeup when I was a bridesmaid I was happy to have no trial for my own wedding. We discussed what I wanted the morning of the wedding, I had one wish “all about the lips” and Anette and I agreed on a fabulous tone of lipstick “girl about town” by mac. Looking at photos now I’m so glad I did the daring look and didnt play the safe card ( keeping neutral tones) There was five bridesmaids too, and I can honestly say they looked absolutely gorgous, they were all so delighted with their look and happy bridesmaids equals happy bride. Anette was so thorough and the whole morning was so calm! I highly recommend her. I took one piece of advice from a professional wedding co ordinator” book the best make up artist , and best photographer” its the memories you have after you appreciate ?
Wedding: 4th Oct 2014
I couldn’t have met a more professional person than Annette. I first met Annette for my wedding trial. She was amazing. She knew exactly what would suit and tried out various ideas. The morning of my wedding, Annette went to my hotel and set up for my big day. She did my best woman, two of my sisters and one of my best friends. Each of the girls came out of the room both in shock that they looked so good!! I loved my makeup for my wedding, Annette took such care, my colours were perfect and Annette knew exactly what would suit me. She made me feel at ease and we had a good laugh also. I couldn’t recommend this girl highly enough. If you want to look amazing for your special day – well Annette is the girl to bring your dream of looking amazing into reality.
Wedding: 22nd Aug 2014
