“I wanted to say thank you for doing mine, my sisters and my mum’s makeup on the day. You did such an amazing job, we all felt beautiful on the day!”
Monique W. (Bride, December 2018)

“Thought the service was great! Key things that stood out to me: Communication was great i.e. always quick to reply, knew exactly what service i was receiving & what was needed from me, always on time, easily adaptable i.e. had a few changes to the original look that she easily implemented, also stayed longer then the time allocated for my trial. Friendly & approachable. Overall just a great service, really happy Michaela was a part of my day and I’d highly recommend her.”
Letticia P. (Bride, February 2018)

Thank you for the amazing makeup!”
Bianca P. (Bride, February 2018 – Matakana)

“Highly recommend Michaela, she did a great job for mine and my girls hair and makeup on my wedding day.”
Hannah B. (Bride, March 2018 – Great Barrier Island)

“Thanks so much for your help. You’ve been lovely to work with from the start – I’m super grateful that you emailed me back really quickly (all the time) as some suppliers were really hard to get through to. It was nice to have a chat with you while you were working and I like that laid-back, relaxed feel you have, especially on the day when I was quite nervous. I’m not super familiar with all the makeup styles, but you were really flexible with my requests which was really nice.”
Chika O. (Bride, February 2018)

“Thank you so much for being such an important part of our day. You girls made us feel relaxed so much so that I don’t think I felt nervous until I was in the car, so thank you!”
Kimberley G. (Bride, November 2017)

“Just wanted to thank you so much for our hair and makeup, we all looks stunning and certainly felt it too so this is really appreciated. Thanks so much!
… amazing at what she does, and such a lovely woman too. I did a full 180 for what I wanted done and she allowed me to do a second trial … as well as went to great lengths to ensure I got the look I was after for my Wedding day which I absolutely did”

Dhanniya M.  (Bride, December 2017)

“It was amazing hair and makeup, the makeup stayed on all night didn’t even need to touch it up and the hair stayed perfect. Really loved it, thank you so much
– Katrina B. (Bridesmaid, April 2017)

“Thank you Michaela for making my special day more special. You made me feel at ease, and you helped me look the way I dreamed of looking on my Wedding day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
Patricia R (Bride, March 2017)

“Michaela thank you so much for being such a valued part of our Wedding day. You were so lovely and supportive of me even though we barely know each other. I also know I have a lot of hair and I wondered if it could really be wrangled enough to look decent but you did an amazing job!”
Michelle C. (Bride, December 2016)

“I think you did an amazing job on the Wedding day with both hair and makeup, not only myself but also my bridesmaids particularly as some of us had challenging hair. You were also so easy to get along with and helped my bridesmaids be relaxed just like I already was. Communication aspect is great as well, you were really prompt with replying to any concerns I had and working with what I had in mind for the day”
Samantha J. (Bride, January 2017 – Matakana)

“I think you did an amazing job and were very professional. I know it was a bit hard considering I didn’t give you a lot to work with in terms of what look I was going for but appreciated that you took on board what I said about not being someone who wears make-up but still wanting a natural look with definition in the eyes. I really liked how the trial look turned out with hair and make-up! Can’t remember if you took any photos but I have some polaroids and it looks amazing. I had so many compliments about how good my make-up looked so thank you again for all your hard work.”
Shusita C. (Bride, January 2018)

“Thank you so much for my beautiful hair and makeup . . . My mum and sister looked amazing also.”
Kat R. (Bride, May 2019)

“It was absolutely amazing and again thanks for my makeup and hair it was exactly as I had pictured it”
Monique (Bride, December 2019)

“Michaela is so talented and beautiful. I was so very lucky to have her agree to do my bridesmaids hair in Hamilton she helped with a timeline and put everything in order for me. She was so easy to deal with and kept in contact throughout the entire lead up to the wedding. I can’t recommend her enough.”
Sasha (Bride – November 2019, Hamilton)

“You were amazing! So easy to get along with, and listened to me about the look I wanted. The makeup looked amazing and stayed on all night”
Chanelle (Bride – October 2019)

“Michaela was amazing, her work was flawless. One the day I forgot my foundation as I was adamant to use my own. Michaela stepped up and solved the crisis. She also returned to redo/touchup our makeup for the reception”
Shivon (Bride – November 2019)

“Michaela was great to work with. Right from the beginning she was quick to respond, helpful with questions and lovely in her responses. Michaela worked hard to see my vision and what I wanted. She was willing to work with me over changes and see the final result be exactly what I wanted. She isn’t just someone who turns up and does a job, but makes you feel comfortable and at ease while she works on you. She did a fantastic job on the makeup and hair of my bridal party.”
Catherine (Bride – November 2019)

“I was extremely impressed with the work I received for not only myself but the girls as well. The makeup looked amazing on us all and lasted all day, my spray tan was also done perfectly and fitted in so well with the makeup. You were very easy to get along with from the get go which made everything so much easier and I think everyone felt extremely comfortable with you which made for such great vibes on the Wedding day. Thank you again so much, I loved what you managed to do with us all.”
Renee (Bride – September 2019)

“I truly want to thank you for the service you provided leading up to the Wedding and on the day itself. You were professional and so reliable that I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I absolutely loved the natural and stunning job you did on my makeup and hair as well as the girls.”
Jennifer (Bride – August 2019)

“I wanted to say a huge thank you to you for doing such an amazing job on our hair and makeup. You were so lovely and made us all feel so comfortable. Your communication was amazing and I felt so at ease knowing I was in such capable hands”
Sarah (Bride – November 2019)

“Michaela was always very prompt to reply to any of my queries leading up to the Wedding day, I never felt any pressure and was confident that everything was going to work out perfectly on the day. And that it did, you did a wonderful job doing hair and makeup for myself and my two bridesmaids and my very excited 8 year old flower girl all by yourself, you were flexible to any changes on the day. Happy, very friendly and confident in everything that you did. You had a great range of makeup products and did an awesome job working with 4 very different types of hair that can be very difficult. Even going above and beyond and helping me get ready with a few last minute rushed things to help get some wonderful photos with the photographer when you had already done your job and could have left. Thank you very much for help me and my husbands special day perfect.”.
Joelle (Bride – December 2019)

“Michaela was so brilliant at keeping in touch on the lead up to the Wedding and working out timescales. She was excellent at going with what we wanted and adjusting as we went along, and very patient with an indecisive bunch of us. Our hair and makeup was lovely and the makeup stayed on despite tears. She was a lovely person to have around on the morning of the Wedding.”
Eva (Bride – December 2019)

“It was my absolute pleasure working with Michaela. She is very patient, makes you feel confortable and great person to have a random chat with. Michaela is an absolute superstar and made me feel beautiful and confident”
Lina (Bride – January 2020)

“Thank you for being the most patient MUA ever! While I was taking lots of breaks and rushing around in the morning, Michaela was so patient and also had such a relaxed aura around her that it even helped me to calm down. I did not have a trial as it was not a priority in my budget but she came through on the day, thanks to lots of communication and team work, as well as providing her with references of her own work that I liked. The fact you kept saying we had time was so calming. I felt like I was rushing around so much but you just kept reassuring me and it was amazing. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Steffi (Bride – February 2020)

“I found Michaela on Instagram, I checked out her page and was really impressed with her work. I was after a natural look for my Wedding which I saw some really lovely examples of that look. Contact and communication has been fantastic, right from my first enquiry. Organizing a makeup trial was super easy, and coming to my own home was more than I expected. Completely professional and such an amazing person. She nailed the trial and left me with every confidence going into our Wedding. Regular updates for the timing of the day, working in sync with the hairdressers schedule was fantastic. Completely drama free, she came super prepared with products as the Bridesmaids just had to tell her how they wanted theirs on the morning of and they all looked stunning. I was more than happy with all her services she has to offer and her friendly, helpful personality definitely made us feel at ease.”
Deb (Bride – February 2020, Otaki, Kapiti Coast)

“I would like to say you were truly a life safe, amazing the whole experience was made so easy for me with such fast and extraordinary communication with all the little details. One the day you were so easy going and we all felt like we had know you for years and it felt like you were apart of our Wedding party. You helped keep everyone in check and calm and we could not of asked for any better, everyone looked truly amazing and makeup lasted all day and night. We had so many comments on how amazing our hair and makeup was. Can not thank you enough.”
