I am so embarrassed that it has taken me this long to write and thank you so much for everything you did for us on June 15th. Everyone was thrilled with their make-up, especially Caoimhe. You were really very good to sew Aoibheanns dress. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw you with a needle and thread and all I could think was what an incredibly kind thing for you to do. So thank you so much for your kindness. I was over in London with Aoibheann last week and she was looking great. It took me awhile to figure what was different about her. It turns out that she has changed her make-up and how she applies it. There was plenty of Emma said this and Emma said that. For once in her life she listened to someone and looks fab as a result. Hopefully we’ll meet again and you can work your magic on us again.

I got married last June and Emma did my make-up and my two sisters and my mam. She was brilliant! I did a trial a couple of months beforehand where we went through everything and the make-up was gorgeous. She uses lots of different brands and gave me a full list of everything she used. I’m not a huge make-up wearer but it was so lovely I ended up buying everything she used later on and am still using it today! On the day Emma was very relaxed and calm and fitted in no problem at all – it’s always good to have relaxed people around! I really did feel very glowing and beautiful and the make-up lasted all day long. Book her immediately!!
