Laura was fabulous to tell with. Very professional. She came to our house and got 5 of us ready no bother. Our makeup was perfect. Everybody loved it and was still perfect in the early hours of the next morning. She was a lovely person to have in your home and went out of her way to help in every way. I would highly recommend her.

The morning of the wedding Laura was amazing. Getting me, my 4 bridesmaids and mum done with plenty of time to spare including tweaks that I requested. My make up stayed in place all day and night. In addition to doing our make up she was great to get us all organised on the morning of including my dress and veil and sending us off to the church. She really went above and beyond for me and kept us all calm on the morning

Laura was there at the time we agreed and she was so professional and help me to sort out my dress, she was wonderful and we had a such relaxing morning and she got 6 of us ready with no stress at all. I loved having her with us and I would highly recommend Laura to do your wedding make up.

Everything about Laura was fantastic. I've never felt more confident, or more beautiful and this was in no small part down to Laura. She went above and beyond at every step, even helping me into my dress and fixing my hair when it got a little scuffed. In fact even a month after the wedding when I asked Laura if she could send me a list of the makeup she used, she was super swift to respond. I've been trying to replicate the look ever since ha! There is no one i would recommend more than laura, she is some o the best money we spent across the whole wedding.

Laura Kay is extremely talented. She worked with two hair stylists and a photographer to ensure our group were ready on time and looked fantastic. She really interpreted the look we wanted to perfection. With some of us, she had to work around skin issues but delivered a flawless appearance. The makeup held all day with minimal touch ups and everyone photographed beautifully. She is a fabulous person. She goes above and beyond, fixing dresses, adjustments, a capable pair of hands, working with tea warmth and great humour. She is super reliable and provides fantastic service. Thank you Laura Kay.

Thanks so much Sonia for your kind words!! Such a great morning with you and your bridal party ???? You looked amazing in your ballgown and the tea length bridesmaid dresses really complimented it. Your hairdresser was so accommodating in her salon. Hopefully we'll meet again soon!! Enjoy your honeymoon!
Review by
Laura was very quick to respond to any queries from the start. She made the whole process very easy. As part of the appointment for the trial make up, she provided lots of tips for skincare and preparing yourself for the big day. When organising times and dates, she was also very quick to respond which is a great help when you have a lot of things to organise for the wedding. On the day, she arrived early and was professional and effcient as we had a long list of people for make up. She was very flexible and accomodating when an extra person was added to the list. She made everyone feel lovely on the day, everyone felt really glamorous, she tailors the make up to each person and makes people feel at ease and that is a real skill. I would highly recommend Laura for your wedding day make up or any other occasion.

Laura did an amazing job on our make up for the day of our wedding. All 6 ladies were unbelievably happy with there make up and we all had so many compliments throughout the day about it. On the morning of the day she couldn't have been more helpful in every way. I highly reccomend Laura to any bride planning there make up.

I highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for bridal makeup. Laura was very tentative and professional. She was very easy to deal with and very patient in both the lead up to the wedding and on the day. Laura chatted freely during the makeup session on the morning of the wedding, making me feel very relaxed, and worked well with my hairdresser in terms of timings for the morning. The makeup itself was superb. I absolutely loved my makeup, especially my eyes, and my bridal party/mams makeup (They loved it also). I even went for a darker shade of foundation on the day, and this did not pose a concern for Laura and she was happy to do what would please me. As I said, I would not have any reservations to recommend Laura to anyone as their make up artist for their special day. Without Laura, my day would not have gone so smoothly.

Laura did an amazing job on my mom, my bridesmaids and me! She was easy to deal with and very quick to respond to emails. She was great on the day. We were all delighted and the make-up lasted all day.
Review by
Laura was amazing both in the lead up to and the morning of the wedding. We were a bossy demanding group, insisting on using a variety of foundations and double checking the make up as it went along and Laura was wonderfully accommodating and kept her pleasant disposition throughout. On top of that, she tied one of my bridesmaids into her Two Birds convertible dress when none of us knew what we were doing, and made me a card box as I was getting into my dress! She was invaluable and great value as well!

I'm not even sure I can do justice to Laura's incredible contribution to my wedding day, but I will try. Laura is such an expert in her work, that stretches far beyond her makeup skills. She helped and advised me as well as beautifying 6 of us (great job on mother of the bride) without starting at stupid o'clock in the morning. The makeup was stunning, it stayed all night and made us all feel beautiful. Laura was such a wonderful presence on the morning, so practical and down-to-earth as well as keeping us all punctual. Laura truly deserves her title as makeup artist of the year.
Review by
Laura was absolutely fantastic both on our wedding day and in the lead up to it. She was so calm and helpful amidst the hustle and bustle of all the morning's activity. She not only did an amazing job on the make up for our wedding party but helped out with lots more including calming some nerves, lacing me into my dress and coaxing my flower girl into wearing her flower crown, a task no one else could manage to achieve! I really couldn't speak more highly of Laura and her professionalism and attention to detail.
Review by
Laura did an amazing job on our wedding makeup. She not only did all of our make up (6 people) but also went the extra mile and stayed late to make sure we all looked great as we left the house. She is a great person to work with and had a very calming affect on the whole morning. I did a trail before the wedding and Laura had some great ideas about what would work well for me and to also compliment my dress. I absolutely loved my make up on the day and it photographed so well, it did not move for the entire day and night! I would absolutely recommend Laura to anyone who is looking for make up artist.
Review by
Laura is a total professional who went above and beyond her role on my wedding day. Not only did she beautify myself and the rest of the bridal party but she also lent a hand when and wherever it was needed. I cannot thank her enough for her efforts on the day, and too in the lead up to the wedding.I loved my makeup, it was so flawless, she's is truly talented. Laura has such a calming and friendly nature, and beyond amazing at her job.
Review by
Laura did my makeup and my bridal party makeup for my wedding day. Laura is so professional and such a talented makeup artist. All of our makeup was so natural and it came out beautiful in all of the photos. Everybody complimented it. She was a pleasure to have in the house the morning of our wedding- very calm and helpful with getting us all ready. I would recommend laura to anyone getting married or going to an event. My cousin, who was one of my bridesmaids booked her already for her own wedding so this is how happy we were with the makeup. Thanks a million again Laura, and hopefully I will see you soon. Will send pictures when I get them on the disk!

Laura was so professional and not only looked after our makeup but got stuck in with helping all the bridal party with getting into dresses, making sure our hair was correct , making sure we stuck to schedule and most important keeping a nice calm atmosphere in the household and ensuring that everything went to plan our make up was fabulous and Laura was more like a wedding planner than a make up artist there is no limit to her talents I would highly recommend her for any event not just weddings, but it is evident that Laura knows her stuff when it comes to weddings
Review by
Laura is excellent at her job, but u can look at the photos and see that!! But what u don't know is on the morning of my wedding, she was a lovely calming influence!! She made tea and coffee for everyone, she helped out anyway she could.. She kept thinks light hearted and nerves at bay! She made me feel so special and gave me great confidence!! I would recommend her to anyone but i may have to insist that she be involved in any of my friends/family weddings.. X

For anyone out there looking for a makeup artist for their wedding, I'd have absolutley no hesitation in recommending Laura. She did a truly stunning job on the day of my wedding - I felt absolutely gorgeous and my Mum and 4 BM's glowed for the entire day - I was delighted. Laura is so professional and so warm and friendly, it was an absolute pleasure to have her there and be part of our day. So to anyone out there trying to decide - go for it girls - you'll feel like a princess! :) Thank you so very much Laura.

Thank you so much for making us all look so amazing on the day. For anyone considering who to book for their make-up I cannot recommend Laura highly enough. She did a fantastic job and was so friendly, warm, calm and professional on the day. I had my makeup, 3 bridesmaids, my mother and a friend so 6 in total.

Dear Laura, A MASSIVE thank you from me for doing such an expert job and making me look the best I've ever looked on my wedding day last November. You are a super-star. Thank you also for all of your advice and help with my eyes in the build up. You are a dream to work with.

To Laura, Thank you for the amazing job you did on my makeup & on the girls. It was flawless and still perfect at 6am! I will never forget how relaxed you made me on that day. I had no worries, knowing you were in control. Thank you for taking charge controlling us rowdy lot and for all the little things on that morning that did not go unnoticed! Thank you for making my dream day perfect!

I highly recommend Laura she is a fantastic make-up artist.. She is so friendly and makes you feel calm and relaxed while she works wonders with those brushes... Xxx
Review by
Laura did my make up and my mam's and bridesmaids for my wedding last April - we were all thrilled. (I think!) we looked amazing!! The make up was really natural and stayed put the whole day, I only had to reapply lippie. Laura was great leading up to the big day with advice-I wasn't sure if I should go for a red lip but Laura said it would look great in pics, and it does. I'm so happy with the final look. Laura was brilliant on the morning of the wedding, she mucked in with other odd jobs in the house which wasn't part of the package! She really helped set a relaxed tone which is so so important. I wasn't a bit stressed and I felt like a billion dollars as I walked out the door. I can't recommend Laura highly enough. She is fabulous at what she does and great fun to have around on the morning of what can sometimes be a stressful day. Thanks so so much Laura! x
Review by
Laura applied our makeup and spray tan for my wedding. She did an amazing job and created an unbelievably relaxed atmosphere on the morning of the wedding. She's such a professional and her attention to detail is greatly appreciated. Everyone felt and looked like a million dollars after she worked her magic. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thanks again Laura
Review by
Laura did the my make-up for my wedding day, as well as the bridesmaids and mother of the bride. I was delighted with the finished look, if only I could look like that everyday! The only touch up I needed throughout the day was a little lipgloss. My mother and bridesmaids were also so happy. On the morning of the wedding Laura helped keep us all relaxed and gave plenty of tips, also stayed right until the moment I left the house to make sure everything was perfect. Thanks Laura.
Review by
I was a bride from abroad last year, and found Laura via the Weddings Online suppliers directory. Laura was easy to contact, quick to respond, and so helpful in planning my "look" for myself, my bridesmaids and the rest of the bridal party from miles away! She was able to accomodate us with a trial make-up session just days before the wedding, really fitting herself into our hectic pre-wedding schedule. On the wedding day Laura was so calm, even though we were running late from the hairdresser, and really put me, and everyone else at ease. Her make-up advice was spot on, and we all agreed we looked the best that we were probably ever going to look - the false eyelashes were a great addition! I recommend Laura because I know that every Bride wants to be the best possible version of herself on her special day, and with Luara as your make-up artist it is definitely one less thing to worry about - she will take care of you 110% - there are so many things to take care of on your wedding day - surround yourself with people you can trust!

Laura did my make up last year for my wedding. I was so happy with the results, Laura listened to what I wanted and really gave me the look I wanted. My make up was flawless and lasted all day and night. Couldn't reccommend a more talented, professional or friendly make up artist. Thank you Laura

Laura did an amazing job of the make-up for me and my two bridesmaids for my July 2011 wedding at Kilshane House, Co. Tipperary. As I live in Dubai, I had to plan the wedding from overseas and from the outset Laura was a pleasure to deal with and very prompt in responding to my mails. She was flexible both in terms of arranging a time and day for a pre-wedding trial and again when I decided to go for a second trial for a slightly different look. Laura is very friendly and great fun and put all three of us very much at ease on the big day. Her work was stunning and we were all extremely pleased with how we looked. She really helped to make the day perfect and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I would highly recommend Laura for a wedding or any special occasion. She is organised, efficient, professional, fun, calm and a great listener. I was nervous about my make up and how it would last but within a few minutes of meeting Laura my mind was put at ease and I found her skill and professionalism was really impressive. She created the look that I wanted which was natural and elegant. On the morning of the wedding, Laura did makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids, my mother and 2 sisters in law. We were all delighted with the results and got lots of compliments. Looks great in all the pics too. The make up lasted perfectly throughout the day/night and I didn't have to worry about it at all. I was really delighted that I chose Laura as our make up artist and would have no hesitations in recommending her to other brides-to-be. Thank you so much Laura!

Laura did my make up for my wedding on Dec 20th 2011. I had already had a make up trial with someone else but unfortunatly I looked like a Pantomime Dame. Eventually I found Laura. We had a trial and I was very happy, but when she did it again on the day it was actually even better. She listened to me when I mentioned bits I am particularly paranoid about and to be very honest, it was probbaly the best I've ever looked in my whole life. The make up stayed on all day and night, I didn't touch up once. I would highly recommend Laura Kay, she really is excellent.
Review by
I booked Laura for my wedding in Sept 2011, and she was fantastic. I had my trial about 8 weeks before the wedding, and Laura was great to listen to what style I had in mind, and she easily reworked any changes I wanted... On the day of the wedding itself Laura was the utimate professional..... and so easy to work with. She puts you at ease and I really enjoyed the whole make up experience on the day... as did my bridemaids. And we were all delighted with the results... and the make up came out really well in photos and lasted all day. And I LOVED my eyelashes. Didnt want to take them off :) So I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for make up and / or tan for a wedding or special occasion..... Thanks again Laura...

I can't recommend Laura highly enough. She did an amazing job for my wedding day in May 2011....Laura is so organised and efficient and from first contacting her she was so professional. Had great fun at the trial with her and from the minute she arrived in our house on the morning of the wedding she made us all feel so relaxed even with seven ladies to make beautiful! The make up felt so light and natural, yet lasted flawlessly till the early hours of the morning! Thanks a million Laura :)

Laura is so genuine and really listens to what you want. She was so easy to get along we and made it an even greater experience than i had hoped. I would recommend her to everyone.

I booked Laura for my wedding in July 2011. Many of my friends have also availed of Laura for their wedding. On the day of the wedding Laura was so calm and easy. She fits in anywhere. I loved my makeup as did my bridesmaids and mum. She also included a trial where she was very helpful listening to what i wanted and giving her advice. I would recommend Laura to my best friend.
Review by
Laura did my bridal makeup for my May 2011 wedding. We corresponded fairly regularly in the months leading up to the wedding and Laura was committed to getting the 'look' I wanted, even checking up after the trial to make sure I was happy. She is professional and puts her clients at ease. On the wedding day she arrived at the house and got straight to work in her calm, relaxed manner. The make up lasted all day and I was thrilled with the entire service.
Review by
Organising a wedding in Ireland from Hong Kong is no easy task. But from my very first correspondence with Laura Kay, I knew I was in good hands. I met Laura face-to-face just four days before my wedding and as we went through the trial, she listened to everything I wanted. Then, on the big day, she arrived at where I was staying and did her magic. She's professional, warm and very talented. I felt at ease during the whole process. I would recommend Laura to any bride.
Review by
I just want to thank Laura for a super job on my wedding day as I got married in December 2010 which was a very stressful time with the snow & frost, Laura arrived to my house at 7.15am in her Smart car, I though she would never arrive with the road conditions I should have never doubted her!! She is brilliant at relaxing a bride, believe me I was nervous!! Laura completed 3bridesmaids, my mother & aunt & every one was delighted with there make-up, I would highly recommend her & two of my friends have since booked her for there wedding! Thanks again Laura

It is my absolute pleasure to write a testimonial for Laura Kay Make Up. I got married in May 2010 and I had originally decided to do my make up myself as my previous experiences with make up artists was not great. I met Laura at a Wedding Fair and after a few minutes I had booked her for my wedding. Laura travelled to my home which is in the middle of nowhere and it was no bother to her. My make up on the day was flawless and looked amazing in the pictures. She also done the make up of my two bridesmaids and my mam and everybody was very impressed with the result. Laura is very relaxed and easy to chat to, she had no problem with my Dad, brother, sister's boyfriends, etc in and out of the house as she was doing her job!! I cannot recommend Laura Kay Make Up highly enough.
Review by

Laura did my make up for my wedding in october 2010. She did a super job and was great to listen to any concerns or ideas i had or the rest of bridal party had.make up lasted all day.thanks Laura :-)
Review by
Really good make-up artist - who knew blusher could do that? And false lashes are the business! Make-up stayed on all day which is saying something and Laura was really relaxed on the day, which is a great help and having your make-up done in your own house is defenitly the way to go! Timely, easy to get on with and did a fabulous job on the make-up!
Review by
My make up on my wedding day was exactly what I wanted. At the trial session Laura really listened to me and showed me what she was doing every step of the way. After that I felt confident for the big day. All my family and friends admired the end result. I would be happy to recommend Laura to anyone.
Review by
I couldn't recommend Laura highly enough, very professional service and relaxing. Laura does exactly what you ask for. Thanks a million Laura!
