"Jess is just fantastic! I'm so glad I found her to do the make up for my wedding day and highly recommend her to anyone looking. The make up was perfect and it lasted well into the evening. Jess was wonderful, calm, collected, professional and reassuring she made an excellent addition to our morning preparations. I initially had many worries as I'm someone that wears very little make up on a daily basis but she took time to go over everything with me and created a look that met my every wish. Ultimately I couldn't have asked for anything more thank you
