“Loved having Tess as part of my special day! From the initial meeting up to the day, she continually checked in to see how I was going and helped me achieve the perfect look. She helped keep my nerves at bay, making me happy and laugh! Loved hanging out before the big walk down the aisle.

My makeup is always perfect when done by Tess. She knows my skin so well and uses what's best to suit me. I would recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect makeup for their perfect day!  ”
