What an incredible MUA
I was looking for a makeup artist in the Essex area for a while and I came across Karen’s Instagram profile and instantly fell in love with her work. It was just what I was looking for! And the day of the wedding didn’t disappoint, she was at the venue prompt in the morning on the hottest day of the year, brushes ready to glam our girls. The make up was so beautifully flawless and stayed put through all the sweat and tears and evening dancing right through to till bedtime. I couldn’t recommend her any more. She’s got so much make up talent and I’d happily recommend to anyone, if I could have a second wedding, I would be having her back again!!!! Thank you Wedding day 17/07/22

Bridebeautiful is Amazing!!! Karen was absolutely amazing right from the start, I loved my trial and she gave me skin care advice which has helped my skin soooo much. She kept in contact with me the whole time leading up to the wedding day and was there always to answer any questions which kept an anxious bride calm.
On the wedding day I felt calm and confident and knew Bridebeautiful would work her amazing magic, my bridesmaids and Mum all looked amazing, and we all got soooo many comments on how amazing we all looked.
Thank you sooooo much Karen I can’t thank you enough. Lots of Love Carrie xx

Absolutely flawless 
Amazing service. Karen made me feel like royalty on the day. I got so many compliments and am still getting them now from Instagram pics. I can’t wait to get my professional pics back so I can write a real rave review x

Would highly recommend for wedding make up
Having chosen Karen for my wedding day make up I can honestly say I couldn’t imagine choosing anyone else for wedding make up! Karen was a recommended supplier for my venue and was recommended by a family member. Her experience on the day made me feel relaxed and reassured and I received so many compliments on my make up-I have now also booked in for a private lesson with Karen!
As someone who does not usually wear much make up, Karen listened to what I was Comfortable with and on the day when I said i was looking at going a bit more glam than my trial-Karen adapted brilliantly taking the overall look up to glam but not taking it too far out of my comfort zone! I loved the fact I still looked like myself on the day!
Thank you for everything you did for me, my mum and my bridesmaids on the day!

Exceptional service I had Karen for my big day, she also did my 3 bridesmaids. All of the bridesmaids were blown away with the quality and professionalism Karen provided. She used top quality and well-known brands which was fantastic. For my make up Karen explained everything and detailed the item she used. She also went through what would look best for my skin type… I seriously couldn’t have asked for more. She was beyond and above of what I had wished for. Kind and very thoughtful lady, I would highly recommend Bridebeautiful if you want to look beautiful and at the same time relaxed, I would choose all over again Karen.

Makeup Dream 💫 Having never had my makeup done professionally before, Karen was just perfect. I booked a trial with Karen for my mum and I and she put us at so much ease. Karen wrote down exactly what she used on us and stuck to it completely on my wedding day. Karen was on time, extremely friendly and was amazing working with such different age groups from young girls, teenagers to adults. Karen did very subtle make up for the younger girls but still made them feel very pampered and pretty. Karen didn’t even stop to trial on the bridesmaids on the day… she just went with their skin tone and colour of the dresses and it was all so smooth. I’ve never felt more comfortable and confident in my own skin and that is thanks to Karen. My mum looked absolutely stunning too and received lots of compliments. A huge thank you to Karen, I LOVED having my make up done and would highly recommend Karen.

Thankyou for making me feel beautiful on my wedding day, you listened to exactly what I wanted and I LOVED the finished look. You were also such a lovely person to have around on the morning. I cannot recommend you enough.

As soon as I got engaged I knew I wanted Karen to do my makeup. Being very familiar with Karens work, I couldn’t wait to see how I would look with all her experience. I showed Karen a few ideas, and told her I wanted a vintage feel. I felt completely comfortable to let her run with her creativity during my trial, so that my makeup be something she was also proud of. I couldn’t have been more blown away with the result and on the day I received countless compliments from my guests and from my now husband about how fantastic my makeup looked. I cant thank Karen enough for how beautiful she made me feel on the most special day of my life and I thank her for putting so much passion, heart and soul into my final look.

So happy I found Karen for my wedding day, she is a fantastic makeup artist. During the trial Karen understood exactly what I wanted, and felt at ease that my makeup would look they way I wanted it to on the day. She made up myself, my mum and my two bridesmaids and we were all very happy! I would defiantly recommend Karen to my friends and family xx

When preparing for my wedding, I was most worried about hair and make up; I am completely clueless when it comes to being girly and pampered so I was so so relieved when Karen came to the makeup trial – she was so knowledgeable, down to earth and completely open to any ideas. Her talent with makeup is spectacular and despite the bridesmaids not having a makeup trial before the wedding, Karen arrived on the day, made us all feel at ease and created perfect flawless makeup for the girls. I don’t often wear makeup, but Karen listen to what I wanted and I felt amazing. I was amazed it lasted the whole day despite bouncing on space hoppers, bouncy castles and having a cupcake smash in my face! Thank you so much Karen – you have an amazing talent and made me, my mum and my bridesmaids feel like superstars!

To Karen,

I cant thank you enough for everything – from my first trials, right through to my big day, you were amazing. You are so kind and patient, I truly couldn’t recommend you more! I have never felt as confident, don’t think I stopped smiling all day – and even managed to bring a tear to my husbands eye when he saw me walking down the isle. So many lovely memories, thankyou!
