Maria was an exceptional beautician. She absoluetly nailed the look that I wanted for my wedding (classic hollywood glam). She did my mothers makeup and my best friends make up as well and they both looked phenomenal and they are both thrilled. She was friendly, easygoing and made me feel very relaxed. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a make-up artist for their wedding.

Maria did a fantastic job on the bridal party make up. She is so easy going and friendly and really listens to the things you do and don't want, so she really makes sure you're happy with the finished product. We all looked fabulous on the day. Thanks Maria!

Maria was absolutely amazing! I am from the US and was a bit nervous about getting my makeup done by someone who had not been referred to. We scheduled a trial for when I arrived in Cork and Maria instantly put my worries at ease! She was easy to talk with and took into consideration my thoughts. Maria wowed not only me but my entire wedding party! It was everyone’s best experience getting their makeup done. Maria did very natural overall makeup with a lot of focus on the eyes which is exactly what I wanted! Maria was on time and even added an additional person on last minute because I had missed counted. Thank you so much Maria! You made our day absolutely perfect!

I cannot recommend Maria enough! She is extremely professional but also so down to earth and made the bridal party feel completely at ease the morning of my wedding! Everyone's make up was absolutely beautiful and we all danced the night away without needing any touch ups! I would give 10 stars if I could xxx

It was a pleasure to have her with us on the morning of the wedding. The makeup lasted all day and night. Maria really listened to all of us and accommodated any requests.

Maria was awesome, professional and friendly. We both have Slovakian genes so it was even better! She did trial for me which lasted me all day for another wedding before ours. She did my make for my wedding day (home visit) and for my maid of honor and my mom (who is Slovakian too so she had a great time with Maria). I will definitely book again for another event.

I honestly can't speak highly enough of Maria. Maria did make up for myself, my two bridesmaids and my mum. From start to finish Maria was extremely professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. She is an extremely talented make up artist who I would highly recommend. She listened to everything we wanted and made sure we were happy. We loved our make up and it lasted all day. Maria is a great addition to any wedding morning.
