  • I have had the pleasure of having my make up done by Danielle for a birthday celebration. I loved the experience, she is so relaxed and dedicated while applying the make-up I really felt like something wonderful was happening. and it was, the creative colours and shades used suited me so well. I absolutely felt fantastic and wish I could get it done every day but it is the best thing to splash out on for a special occasion.

  • Danielle was introduced to me by a friend about four years ago. Since then I have used her for balls, corporate events, evenings out and advice on make up products. Danielle clearly knows what looks good and has on several occasions exceeded my expectations and totally transformed me! I have absolute confidence in Danielle's abilities and have even booked her for my wedding. I trust Danielle implicitly and can safely say I haven't met a make-up artist so skilled and personable. Danielle's friendly, honest and great fun! I have absolutely no doubt in recommending her as the best in her field!
