“Shell made me feel at ease through the whole process of preparing my look for the wedding, the trial was so fun and it felt like Shell was as keen to get things right as I was. Nothing was too much trouble in the lead up and my bridesmaids loved the attention they got on the big day. On the wedding day I felt so incredibly happy with the look Shell created, I was over the moon! I felt confident all day and didn't have to worry about my re-applying makeup or re-touching my hair. I'd highly recommend Shell for any event, she's a Superstar! Really chilled and a lovely calming influence."

“From the moment I booked Shell she was absolutely amazing. On my trial we talked about the look I had in my head and she brought it to life. I felt incredible and I couldn't wait to have it done again on my big day. I booked Shell for hair and makeup for my whole bridal party (myself, mother of the bride, 3 bridesmaids and 3 flower girls!). Nothing was too much to ask and even though there was so much to do everything went so smoothly and we all felt totally relaxed throughout. Throughout the whole day we had people commenting on our hair and makeup. I highly recommend Shell. Simply amazing at what she does!"

“Booking Shell for my wedding make-up was one of the best decisions I have made.  From the moment I sent an enquiry with regards to the wedding right through to the day itself, I felt that the standard of service was excellent. Shell made me feel at ease and instilled confidence in me, which in turn made me so much more relaxed on such an important day and the results were amazing!  I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you Shell!”

“Shell is such a lovely make-up artist, she made me feel a million dollars.  Everyone commented on how good my makeup looked and I felt great.  She was fantastic.  I would recommend Shell to everyone.  Not only is Shell a lovely person, but she takes great pride in her work and the outcome is amazing. The makeup was fab! It still looked amazing long into the evening, even with the high temperatures, sunshine and humidity.

“Shell did my wedding make up for my July wedding, and I was truly delighted with how Shell made me look . I was worried about heavy make up being obviously visible but my face looked 'done' but so natural. My make up lasted all day too, even through some pretty wild dancing and a rainy dash back to the hotel! Fab job Shell”.

“Shell is definitely the best in the business. Right from the very beginning of checking her availability to the trial to the wedding day, she was always professional and she made sure that your visions for your bridal and bridal party makeup were always met to each and every detail.  When I first met her in person for my trial she was warm and welcoming and made me feel very comfortable with the entire process and the same again on my wedding day for myself and my bridal party.  She truly is the very best!”

I absolutely loved my make-up and got so many compliments all day. My Mum looks beautiful as did my 3 bridesmaids. As soon as any of the wedding party came from getting there makeup done they where instantly relaxed and where so calm. Shell is brilliant at her job and I would recommend anyone to book her, if they want professional, flawless long lasting make up for the most important day of your life! Thank you again.”

“A magnificent artist for any occasion!!! Shell’s passion for makeup shines right through in her work. She has a genuine up beat and fun personality and listens to her clients, delivering the makeup results you only ever see on an airbrushed magazine advert. Shell did my makeup on my wedding day and made me look glamorous but natural at the same time. Every woman should have the ” Shell Sullivan” experience once in their lives!!”
