The Perfect Make Up

Perfect Bridal Make Up for Weddings and Special Occasions

Recently, I was a regional finalist in the 2014 Wedding Industry awards, as well as one of the the top 3 most popular wedding make up artists in England, the most popular wedding make up artist in Staffordshire and the most popular wedding make up artist in Lichfield.


Here are just a few of the testimonials from my brides so far....



Emma Watson

Before I set a date for our wedding I came across the perfect make up on Facebook and all the looks Michelle created were stunning. I knew straight away Michelle was the person I needed to help me feel the part on my big day. So after setting a date I was so happy Michelle could do my make up. The trial was lovely and I really felt confident and flawless with the creation she came up with. 

When my wedding day arrived Michelle helped make the morning special she was so friendly and helpful. Not only that when I became a nervous bride she supported me and was a calming influence and Once I saw the results of myself and bridesmaids I was full of emotion. I felt confident and over the moon with what she had achieved. We looked perfect! All our guests commented on how beautiful we all looked and Our make up lasted all day and night which made me even happier.

 The perfect make up is exactly what it says it is and so much more.

 Thank you Michelle you are amazingly talented and a genuine lovely person.

Hi Michelle, I wanted to leave with you a review of my experience as I think every bride deserves to have you as their make up artist and they all need to know! 

I was passed on Michelle's details from a friend who's wedding I attended last year and had to find out who did her make up. And I'm so glad I did! As soon as I met Michelle for our make up trials I felt instantly it was the right decision, all eyes on you as the Bride, it's quite a big decision! From her beautiful product to her calm and assuring personality, Michelle had a passion for make up, and making brides beautiful. 

On the day, there were a few tears as the weather was gloomy but nevertheless, my bridal party was treated with attention and perfection as Michelle took her time with each person. She was so helpful and she became one of the bridal party from the moment she arrived. 

My make up lasted all night with absolutely no touch ups and I was beyond pleased. The Perfect Make Up is exactly what it is. It's not just about the make up though, the experience from start to end was truly lovely.

I wish Michelle the very best for her wedding day in August, she will look sensational. 
Thank you, love from the Hill wedding. 29.05.15.

I first met Michelle when I was a bridesmaid for my best friend. Her photos from her trial looked incredible and I knew she was thrilled. As her bridesmaid I felt incredible with the make up Michelle did for me as you still want to look your best as a bridesmaid. Later that year because I wanted to invest in some new make up I booked a lesson with Michelle. She spent a few hours at my house and I learnt some great tips and invested in some new make up and haven't looked back since. 

When I got engaged myself before I'd even thought of booking the church and reception, my first thought was that I really need to book Michelle! I was delighted that she was free! From my trial to my wedding day itself Michelle made me, my mom and my bridesmaids look and feel amazing. On the day itself Michelle was also really helpful with helping the girls into their dresses too. I really could have not asked for anything better. Everyone wants their wedding day to be perfect and Michelle really did give us the perfect make up. She is fabulous! Thank you

 I just want to thank you for the beautiful make up you did for me, my mum, aunty and cousin the other week. You really did do an amazing job on us all.

You were especially great with my cousin who had a sty on her eye and was devastated, however with some sparkly eye shadow and beautiful lashes you managed to totally hide it.

I'd seen your work when you did my colleagues Eve's make up last year. I went to the evening reception and was amazed when she said she had only retouched her lipstick all day. She looked beautiful and glowing in her pics and I hoped you could do the same for me.

I was not disappointed. The trial helped us decide the best products to use and on the day you were both professional and lovely. You answer any messages immediately and was the only supplier to text the day before the W day to remind me of our early start. It really put my mind at rest that you were going to be on time. You're such a lovely lady and I would have no hesitation to recommend you to any bride and wish you all the best with your wedding in August. Thanks again Karen McKinley xxx

"Thank you so much, my make up was perfect, you completely transformed me. My Dad cried when he saw me. You did an amazing job! My day was absolutely perfect, nothing went wrong and i'm still on cloud 9."

Amy Jones

Thank you for everything you did on our wedding day. You were a pleasure to have around during the morning and all of our make up was just perfect. It was exactly what I wanted and lasted all day. I will certainly be recommending you x



Thank you for your magnificent work on our wedding day. Not only were you able to cover up my allergic reaction but you made me look amazing and my bridesmaids too. My Mum also looked lovely thanks to you. As well as being our make up artist you were also a very calming presence in those last 30 minutes when everything gets a little bit stressed and nerve racking. So again a big Thank you for all you did. I would highly recommend you to other brides and will definitely book you again once we are back in the UK. “The Perfect Make Up” yourself  but better xx

Michelle is one of the most amazing people I know, she made me and my whole bridal party feel extremely comfortable on the most amazing day of my life, she wasn't just a make up artist, she became one of us, feeling our excitement and emotion every step of the way.  The makeup was perfect and she made me feel and look like a princess, for that I will always be eternally grateful.  I will definitely use "The Perfect Makeup" again and have recommended her over and over again, why wouldn't I when she's simply the best.  Thank you Michelle xx

Michelle is very talented at what she does, on my wedding makeup trial she suggested trying a look based around what I had in mind which I immediately loved and decided to go with. On the wedding day itself my makeup stayed on all day without any touching up required and I was so glad I had decided to get it professionally done. Michelle's friendly and approachable persona made me feel at ease straight away and I've recommended her to friends and future brides to be.

Tina Weldon

I booked my wedding make up with Michelle for December. I had known two friends who previously used her so i booked on a recommendation.

On my wedding day Michelle was professional and pleasant making me and the 5 bridesmaids feel really comfortable.

I let Michelle use colours and products that she felt suited me and she was spot on. The end result was amazing! And it lasted all day and night.

I would definitely recommend Michelle to any future bride.

Michelle was a pleasure to have around on the morning of my wedding, she was very friendly and helped me to relax! My make-up looked amazing and I felt amazing. All of my make-up was perfect right up until the end of the evening and looked lovely on the photographs. I had strip lashes which stayed in place until the next day - even after a few tears! 

I highly recommend Michelle to future brides. Xx

Victoria Hawkes

I wanted to be a stunning bride, as all brides do, but I also wanted my wedding day to be slightly different and more relaxed. My dress was ¾ length, I had bright blue shoes on and I also had long curly hair extensions with my hair down. Michelle was recommended to me by a friend and we instantly clicked on the phone when she called me to confirm the booking.

She asked what I was looking for on my wedding day and I remember her saying “so you want to look like the most beautiful girl in the most beautiful dress then? This is an understatement to how I felt!!!!!  Michelle listens to exactly what you are looking for but instead of plastering loads of make up on and looking unnatural, she makes you look like the most beautiful girl in the world and have always looked that way!

My make up truly was perfect.
