"Zoe is the most calming, perfect makeup artist. So easy to deal with, great communication, nothing was an issue. My mum, 3 bridesmaids and I all felt so beautiful and comfortable, the makeup lasted all day with minimal touch ups. Can’t recommend Zoe enough!!!" Leah Fox, March 2024

"Zoe was amazing for our wedding in late Jan. She came recommended to me by our first make up artist. We had a large party to get ready so needed 2 people to get everyone done. Zoe worked in so well with our other makeup artist, she has beautiful technique and worked seamlessly to ensure all make ups looked the same between both artists. She was so lovely and friendly and always very prompt with communication. We had quite a tight time line to stick to and all our makeups were finished early but to perfection. I would highly recommend Zoe to anyone looking to have their make up done, you won’t regret it!" Tahlia Irvine, February 2024

"Couldn’t recommend Zoe and her team enough. They were amazing through the entire process from bridal hair and makeup trials, all the way to the wedding day. They were the perfect team! So happy with my hair and make up and the photos prove it!" Gemma Cornish, January 2024

"Zoe was incredible! She was our make up artist for our wedding and did a fabulous job of the bridesmaids, my Mum and also my Aunt. I felt relaxed getting ready and loved what she did for me too, she gave advice and listened to my thoughts. I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup, but I felt really comfortable with what Zoe did for me and was so pleased on the day! Thank you Zoe for making us all feel beautiful and pampered!" Emma Bell, December 2023
