Grainne made me look and feel like a princess! She was very open to my ideas and listened to my feedback and opinions. I was so happy with my make up and I only needed to top up my lipstick in the evening, my foundation didn't budge. Also my mother doesn't usually wear make up so Grainne gave her a gorgeous light make up glow which wasn't too heavy for her. 10/10 I couldn't recommend her enough

Gráinne was amazing. Not only did she have 1 bride but she had 2 to deal with. She couldn't have been more professional. She was so pleasant to work with and our make up was beautiful. We would highly recommend her for anyone wanting their make up for their wedding.

Gráinne did my make up for my wedding day and she did a phenomenal job. She was such a lovely person to be around on the morning. She is a very talented and professional make up artist, she made my bridesmaids look beautiful, my mam looked stunning and I felt beautiful, Gráinne made us all feel so comfortable and our makeup lasted all day! I really couldn’t have picked a better make up artist for my big day.

Grainne is lovely and very professional lady. She's flexible and very easy to talk to. She's very skilled, listens to what your make-up needs are and makes you look exactly or even better that you would've expected. She's great with natural make up for tweens and lady's that are not comfortable wearing make up. Couldn't be happier with her work and would recommend her to everyone.

Grainne was an absolute gem I had to re arrange my makeup artist as my original date was changed due to COVID and my replacement artist was not available for the day of my wedding. Grainne stepped up. From the nervous trial she was so calm and understood everything..her professionalism and quality was just amazing I can't thank her enough for what she has done for me! The morning of my wedding she got my girls my mam and myself ready and had us looking so glam she was like part of the family touching us up and making sure our makeup was number 1 priority for the big day xx

Grainne has been absolutley amazing throughout the whole process from make up trial to wedding day. She is so talented and catered for all levels of make up. My mam wouldn't really wear make up and was so apprehensive about getting it done for the wedding. Once she met Grainne she was so at ease and enjoyed every minute of the trial and the wedding day. It goes without saying how talented Grainne is, all you need do is look at her beautiful brides. The special thing about her is her patience, kindness and friendliness. It was like having one of the family with us on the day. Thank you for everything

I couldn’t have ever imagined how perfect my makeup for my wedding would have turned out, but I was absolutely taken back where I started to cry at how beautiful Grainne made me look, from the bottom of my heart thank you for all your amazing talented work. The only way I can describe how I looked was I literally looked photoshopped walking around, even my videographer commented on how beautiful I looked and how easy it was to shoot close ups shots of my face. When I think back this was the one aspect of my wedding I never once had a worried thought about because I knew I was in the most amazing hands ever. I even cried at my makeup trial at how fabulous my face looked, so I knew from this moment I didn’t have a thing to worry about. If I could give you a 10* star out of 5* I would! Thank you again the amazing Make-Up by GC xxx

Thank you so much to Grainne for bringing so much joy and professionalism the morning of my wedding. I was lucky to have Grainne do my makeup before for a black tie event so when it came to choosing my wedding makeup artist I knew she was the one for me. From the trial I felt confident me and Grainne where on the same page when it came to the bridal look I was trying to achieve. She really listened to what I wanted and i was so delighted with the final look. She was amazing when it came to replying to any questions I had and she had such a calming presence the morning of the big day. I got so many compliments on my makeup and zero touch ups where required. She gave me a few tips for my skin aswell which was a great help. I would highly recommend this girl if you want to stand out and feel beautiful for your wedding day she honestly works magic with them brushes. Thanks again Grainne, Would highly recommend to future brides.

Grainne is absolutely a delight to work with and makes you feel a million dollars before making you look it! I was so very lucky that Grainne was available to do my wedding makeup and that of my 4 bridesmaids. From first contact she was more than happy to help with any questions and had suggestions when I wasn’t too sure of the final look. I asked if we could test it out for my hens and she was more than happy too. On the day she made everything effortless even with 5 girls to do! I loved my makeup it looked natural and I felt truly beautiful. Grainne is an amazing artist and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!

Grainne did my makeup for my engagement photoshoot and again for my wedding. Grainne has so much patience and is a true professional when it comes to her work. I could not fault her work as everything she did went above and beyond my expectations. My makeup looked flawless in my engagement and wedding photos and I loved how she didn't pack on product and the makeup application itself felt so light. She's great at giving you tips and tricks to do your own makeup at home as well. Grainne is highly skilled and organized. I couldn't imagine having booked anyone else for my special day.
