Hi Karen

I would just like to express my thanks to you for the wonderful makeup up you did for my wedding on September 21st . We all looked amazing and you are truly talented. We had so many comments on how lovely, natural and beautiful we looked.

You have such a beautiful way about you and were so relaxed calm and in control during the morning, we could not have wished for anything more.

Many thanks once again

Best regards Alison

Just wanted to email and thank you again from all of us for the wonderful part you played on our wedding day. You looked after us so well and slotted in as one of the girls. We were all delighted with our make up and you really made us feel spectacular. You are so fantastic at what you do. I'm already hoping for another occasion in the future when you can glam us up again!


I have attached some pictures for you. If I find some more I'll send those on too! 


Thanks a million,

Hi Karen              

I've been meaning to get in touch properly since the wedding. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful makeup on the wedding day. I loved mine as did my mother, sister and Máire. You were a lovely calm presence in the kitchen too and everything was perfectly timed. 


Many thanks again!

I couldn't be happier that Karen was available for our wedding date. The booking process was seamless and communication was always friendly, helpful and prompt. She put us at ease on the wedding morning and created beautiful natural looks, just like we wished for. Karen is so talented and is so professional and experienced at what she does. I was also so impressed that the makeup lasted all day and night. I didn't even need to touch up once. Couldn't recommend Karen highly enough for any of you brides to be.

The makeup genie did my bridal make up June 2nd 2018- there was six people to do including myself. We had an early start of 6.30am as our church was an hour away Karen came to my home for the makeup this helped for time keeping and also that we could relax on the morning between hair and make up! Karen made sure we were all ready on time for photographs before we left the house and everything ran so smoothly
Karen -The makeup Genie was amazing all my four bridesmaids looked stunning they looked like themselves very classic timeless makeup which was what I wanted. My mother looked amazing and Karen really made sure that she looked flawless! My own make up was amazing I was the best version of myself and was so all day!! 
Thank you again to the makeup genie xx

I couldn't recommend Karen enough, she is fantastic. She did make up for two of my sibling's weddings and my own 5 weeks ago. She is so nice and friendly and made me feel at such ease on the day of my wedding. She is extremely talented at her job. We have another family wedding next year and I wouldn't get anyone else to do our make up.

Where to begin..... Jeepers Karen is fab. She did an absolutely fantastic job for my wedding in March and I could not recommend her highly enough. She really took her time in the trial to make sure I was happy with everything, she went through all the products with me so I could have more for any touch ups on the day. She really thought of everything. On the day she was a dream, she is so friendly but worked really efficiently to get through all the make ups while still making everyone feel special. She was a calming influence and a real pleasure to have as part of our special day. The Make-ups were Amazing, Flawless and I felt a million dollars so Thanks again Karen. Looking forward to seeing you again at future family events!!

Karen is an amazing make up artist. She recently did my bridesmaid make up for my sister's wedding (including the bride and 3 other bridesmaids). Everyone looked stunning. Karen has such a calming way about her we all felt very relaxed on what còuld have been a stressful day. I highly recommend booking her, you won't be disappointed.

I cannot recommend Karen (who truly is a make up genie) highly enough.

I live in the UK and about five days before my brothers wedding in Cork, I was given Karen's details and luckily for me, she had, had a last minute cancellation and was able to fit myself and my two sisters in for our make up.

All three of us were very pleased with our looks. Karen quickly gave options and we trusted her opinion. She did not disappoint.

Everything about Karen is complete professionalism from the first prompt email reply to arrange everything, timekeeping, the way Karen presents herself, her amazing talent as a makeup artist and the way she completely puts you at ease.

I cannot say anything but positive comments about this lovely lady, only that my sisters and I wished she was local to us!

Karen is an excellent teacher. After having a demo with her, she explained and showed all areas of applying makeup in an easy and fuss free way. You learn a lot from Karen when she is demonstrating and shows you in a simple understanding way how to apply makeup. I would definitely recommend Karen and will definitely get my makeup done with Karen again! I highly recommend Karen to all!
