Marie was a real professional very the very start. I wasn't even going to get someone to do my makeup but I changed my mind towards the end of the planning. Marie listens to you about what kinda makeup you would like and tailors a makeup style just for you. When I meet Marie for my makeup trial she gave me a skin routine based on my skin and recommends products that you should use. One product that I started using worked a dream and my skin is so much more hydrated now. Marie really knows her stuff. On the day of the wedding, Marie called and set up in my house in a quiet room so that everyone got to feel like a movie star being done up for their role. And the quiet time that I had away from what can be a mad morning full of excitement was great! Marie did an amazing job on everyone makeup and even gave my flower girl some lip gloss to make her feel part of the experience. My now husband couldn't get over how defined my eyes were and loved all the attention that they were given. I would highly recommend Marie Jseph services fro any bridal party on their big day.

I am delighted with the service that Marie Joseph provided. From the first moment that she came to my house the morning of my wedding she took charge of bringing some quiet moments for all the bridal party. Marie set up in my sitting room and dealt with one person at a time. She made everyone feel special and gave them time to relax and enjoy the experience. It was lovely to have that time. My makeup was amazing. Marie spent a lot of time on my eyes and this was something that my Now husband noticed first. He would like me to look like this all the time! Marie not only looked after all the makeup but she also was perfect at the timings of getting ready. Everything went like a dream and having someone that knows how weddings days go is always good! Would highly recommend using her service.

I cannot recommend Marie enough. On first meeting her in September 2016 when I was a bridesmaid, I did not even hesitate in booking her for my wedding the next year. She has such a broad knowledge of the business and listened to my ideas, transforming them into reality. Having suffered with problematic skin through my teenage years she devised a skincare regime in the run up to my wedding which ensured she had the perfect canvas to work with. Her relaxed nature while being conscious with time keeping ensured we had time for a glass of fizz before leaving for the venue. It was an absolute dream. It must also be mentioned that she is a fabulous photographer and really knows what makeup photographs well, something that I think her experience in the business gives her. This is a huge factor that makes her stand out from the rest. My bridesmaids looked incredible along with my mum and I felt like a confident bride. Needless to say my sister has booked her for her wedding next year. ????

Start the search for your Makeup Artist and Hairstylist early once you' ve booked your wedding. Book a makeup trial. Look for experienced Make Up Artists like Marie Joseph and look at their portfolio of work. Do lots of research in bridal magazines and WOL before choosing your Makeup Artist. In my experience from my first contact with Marie Joseph she was a true professional, she responded to me immediately. She was very accommodating and exceptionally talented in her field.I was offered advice on a skincare regime pre wedding and in general. I was offered different options for makeup styles and bridal looks and Marie always took my views into consideration. Marie did the makeup for me, my wedding party and my Mum and everyone looked beautiful and the makeup lasted all day. Marie even made my flower girls feel part of it by applying a touch of blush and lipgloss. I cannot recommend Marie Joseph highly enough. She's calm, she relaxes you as a bride as she warm and friendly, she works very well with the hairstylist and made me look and feel fabulous.Thankyou Marie. Denise, Clara, Marietta, Laois and Niamh.

Marie was great. It was lovely having her with us getting ready. Everybody loved her. My makeup stayed put well into the wee hours! I would recommend going reasonly well in advance for your trial so that she can advise on what our skin needs. IT made a big difference for me.

"I was a 'wipes and cheap moisturizer' kinda girl before meeting Marie and having her do my wedding make-up and I would have found the experience intimidating if it weren't for her warmness. Before even planning my wedding make up I was given a master class in skincare and given so much support and encouragement. Marie's expertise and knowledge comes across strongly in her ability to read your style and being intuitive as to what is 'too much' or' too little' for your personal tastes as well as knowing when to push you ("You can't wear a dress like that without a red lip!"). Having her around on the morning of the wedding was fantastic, there was some great conversation and laughs and all the girls and the mammy were delighted with their looks. I cannot recommend Marie more highly to prospective brides." Thanks so much for everything xx

Marie was absolutely fantastic. She made each of us feel like the best version of ourselves. She was fun to have around on the morning and slotted in well, but was super organised so there was not time stress despite there being 6of us to be done. Very aware of keeping things bridal and not getting carried away with trends that will age photos. Very responsive to what her clients want also. Highly recommend. Hope some of my friends choose her so i can have my make up done by her again.

Marie is amazing! She was a dream to deal with from my trial through to our wedding day. She made me, my bridesmaids and my mum feel incredible on the day. Her attention to detail is second to none. She even went to the trouble of giving me a full skin care plan following my trial. My make up needed no top ups for our whole wedding day She was great fun to have around on the morning of the wedding and made sure we were all relaxed and enjoyed the build up. I would recommend her in a heartbeat x

Marie did my make up for my wedding in September this year. I was delighted with my makeup and the makeup she did for all of my bridesmaids and my mum. The makeup looked amazing in person, in photos and stayed in place all day! Marie is really organised and it a total pro. She is great to have around on the morning of the wedding and kept everyone on time. I would highly recommend Marie to any bride to be :)

From the moment that I met Marie, she got my vision of how I wanted to look on my big day and delivered it perfectly..I looked like me but a better version! Marie gave great advice on skin care from our first meeting and followed up my emails and queries in the following months in the lead up to the big day. She was able to accommodate last minute eye lash requests from bridesmaids, expertly handled a difficult landlady (of our B&B) and she helped keep me calm by reassuring me and ensuring we kept to our tight schedule. I loved how Marie made myself and the bridesmaids look - we felt a million dollars. There is a reason Marie has been in the wedding business for so long - her experience and expertise are unrivalled. Thank you!

Marie was great! Had super timekeeping and time management on the morning of the wedding, the makeup was more than perfect for myself, my bridesmaids and my mum.

I met with Marie Joseph for the first time at the 2014 Citywest Wedding Fair and straight away I knew that I wanted to work with Marie for my wedding day. From the trials to the wedding morning nothing was any trouble or too big of an ask. Marie's professionalism, experience and sound advice shone through and was very welcomed - it made the bridal party feel so at ease and relaxed on the morning of the wedding. We were all very pleased with the results and got exactly what we had asked for. I highly recommend working with Marie for your special day.

As well as being a terrific make-up artist, I found Marie to be an understanding and very thoughtful person. The word 'artist' is definitely appropriate in her case, as she made each of us look our very best selves in a natural way. Marie was very sensitive towards my bridal nerves about the make-up and she took time during the trial to explain her make-up processes and to connect with my vision for the wedding. I was so delighted with my make-up on the day - it was perfect - and I am quite a difficult person to please!! My make up was as fresh as 4am as at 10am - without a single touch-up. I would highly recommend Marie to all brides, bridesmaids and mothers of brides. She was a lovely, calm presence on the morning of the wedding, running everything smoothly for us. Thank you Marie, for the large role you played in my special day.

My sister ( who is big into make up) and my mum were delighted as well. Thank you, Marie, for making my wedding day this extra bit more special.

Marie was absolutely brilliant at doing the make up for my Wedding at the start of August 2015. She was so organised, professional and kept us all very relaxed. When i first went for my trial she introduced me to a skin routine which i have been using ever since. She has a great eye and i loved my make up both at the trial and on my Wedding Day.Marie also did my mums make up and 3 bridesmaids. They were all delighted with her. Marie had everything down to a T with time on the day and had us all looking amazing and made me feel very relaxed! Just brilliant, i would definitely recommend her!

My sister used Marie 10 yrs ago when she got married. When it came to researching make up artisit, Marie Joseph came out on top. Marie has consistently retained her proffesionalism, kept up to date with all relevant make up styles and can advise on make up for all skin types. When meeting Marie, she could tell the exact moisturiser I used without asking me which was incredibly impressive. Make up in Marie's passion. The guidance and care that Marie gives is phenonimal. Marie made me feel so confident on my wedding day and without Marie, my day would not have been the same. I was so pleased my make up lasted all day and night.

Marie Joseph is an incredibly talented make-up artist! She did the make-up for my wedding in August 2014 & I cannot recommend her enough. My 4 bridesmaids, my Mom & myself were so happy with our make-up - everything was perfect. She was so professional on the day - her timing was great - she arrived on time & had all 6 of us ready to leave the house when we were supposed to! She was a pleasure to deal with & helped keep us all calm & relaxed! I would really recommend her to anyone, as she will deliver the look you want!

Marie did an excellent job at my wedding. She arrived on time and made everyone feel at ease by asking how they would like to look and explaining exactly how she would achieve the look they wanted. Everyone looked beautiful and we're all very happy with their look. Marie took her time at my trial and went through several different foundation possibilities to find the perfect one. She even gave me a home care plan for my skin in the run up to the wedding. Very reasonable and flexible!

Marie was an absolute pleasure to deal with right from the trial i had with her before the wedding(she gave me skin prep & tips to have my skin in the best condition it could be on the day & helped me pick the perfect foundation that gave me coverage but looked very natural) right up to my special day, she was so professional but with a comfort to have in my house on the morning of the Wedding, she was very calming which is an extra bonus for any bride. She also took some beautiful pictures throughout the morning, that she kindly emailed to me afterwards which i thought was a lovely thing to do as even my photograher hadn't got some of the photos Marie thought of taking. I couldn't recommend Marie enough to any brides to be.

I chose Marie to do our wedding makeup based on the recommendation of a friend. I really enjoyed the first trial which I had well in advance. Marie did a full skin analysis and sent me a skincare programme to follow. My skin was in excellent condition as a result and I continue to follow the programme post-wedding! I learned a lot about make-up application at the trial including how to apply my day to day make-up and apply eye make up. This was so useful for my hen weekend and in the days before and after the wedding! Marie was absolutely brilliant on the day of our wedding. In the weeks leading up to the wedding she advised me wisely about managing time on the morning of the wedding! This helped the morning to run smoothly and meant I was ready before the photographer arrived. The whole day flowed smoothly as a result. I have five sisters (one sister was bridesmaid) and two additional bridesmaids. Marie and assistant made such a wonderful job of all our makeup and this really shows in the photographs! We all learned something new about make up application on the day! Marie used a range of foundations and it was brilliant to see how well they suited each person! Mother of the Bride especially enjoyed having her make up done. Marie was also extremely obliging when my sister in law phoned from the airport to say she had forgotten her make-up and managed to do a wonderful job on her make-up under pressure!! Finally a word on the bridal make-up!! My make-up lasted all day despite the fact that it was the hottest day of the year (30deg)! I did not need to reapply make-up and just topped up my lipstick as needed! All in all Marie was fabulous to work with and I would recommend her to any bride!

If you are looking for an experienced, professional make up artist who will have you looking amazing on your wedding day Marie is your woman! I found her at a wedding fair and so glad I did...she is the one supplier from my wedding day who I continually recommend to other brides as she did such a brilliant job on me and my bridal party. The make up was exactly as I had wanted (only better!), flawless, lasted all day and photographed beautifully. Marie arrived on time, was a calming influence on a crazy morning and had us all ready to go with time to spare. Book her early as she is very popular!

About 11 months before my wedding, I did what nearly every bride does and attended every single bridal fayre I could in the Leinster area! I was in search of the perfect suppliers for my big day. Call me old fashioned but I like to meet people face to face if I'm going to work with them, especially if it's for something that's so important to me. While browsing the stands I stopped at Marie's. What caught my eye was that this artists experience was displayed so proudly and what a wealth of experience it showed. What struck me first about Marie was that She was so warm and friendly. I felt comfortable around her immediately and she didn't try to over sell herself. I booked in for my Trial date and at the time I wasn't sure what look I wanted for my big day. After voicing this to Marie she helped me figure it out. She created a look for me that she described as a better version of myself. This was exactly what I truly wanted to achieve. I wanted my husband to be, my family and friends to recognise me as the same person only more radiant and defined. On the wedding day Marie did not disappoint. Arriving early and with her warmth and friendliness she made me feel comfortable and at ease. Having complete trust in her I knew this was definitely one part of the day that would turn out just as I wished. Looking back a year and a half later I'm grateful to Marie for making my experience and the morning of my wedding so pleasant. Xx

I booked Marie to do my bridal party makeup on 30th August 2013, as I had seen first hand, as bridesmaid for my sister in 2011, how professional Marie is. She was top of my list in terms of suppliers to book and I was delighted she was free on my date as I knew I would be in safe hands! The makeup trial in February was brilliant, she came up with a really lovely look for me and she recommended a skincare regime for me to follow. Then on the day of the wedding she was just brilliant, putting everyone at ease and keeping us all on track, in terms of timings, working brilliantly with the hairdresser, (as there were 5 of us in total) to ensure we were ready in time. All of the girls looked fabulous, and our makeup lasted all day and all night, despite all the dancing!! I would highly recommend Marie to any bride for her professionalism and just to know you are in safe hands!

Marie did our make-up on my wedding day. The results were fabulous. She's extremely good, professional and she will meet any kind of requirements regarding the make-up (from a natural make-up till more extravagant ones). I was extremely happy with her work and not to mention that she's an extraordinary person, you will just love to work with her. In addition, she recommended me a highly professional hairdresser. Both, make-up and hair looked spectacular. I strongly and warmly recommend her. She's the best!

Hi Marie, Thank you so much for our fabulous makeup on my Wedding Day.I absolutely loved it. Our makeup stayed on all day and night (and we danced the night away!!!) We got lots of compliments about our makeup and how natural it was. It felt so nice and light on our skin. The eyelashes were a big hit and they even lasted me the week. You were so competent and had such a great knowledge of makeup and skincare. We were all very impressed with the range of brands you had on the day. Some of my bridesmaids wear different makeup to me and they were so happy that you carried the makeup they usually wear. You were so lovely to deal with and nothing was a problem to you. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends. Thanks again, you did a super job.

Marie is a true expert, professional, friendly and organised. She had 5 women leaving the house on the morning of my wedding, feeling like they never had before. I felt amazing and only wish I could bring Marie with me every day of my life to recreate the look. Booking Marie to do our make up was the best decision made in the wedding plans. She arrived on time, set up and had us all organised and beautiful without a fuss. My make up was complemented all day. I ended up in A&E the night of my wedding due to an accident and so did not go to bed until 1pm the next day at which stage my make up was still perfect. Thanks Marie.

As we live abroad, but decided to have our wedding in Ireland anyway, finding a good make-up artist was not an easy thing to do. Luckily I was pointed to Marie Joseph direction by Kinnitty Castle staff. I did some Google research on her and found her homepage and was really impressed of the work she has done! So I contacted her and asked if she has time to do the make-up for me, bridesmaids and my mom on the wedding day. Luckily she did and there are really no words to describe how good she is… My bridesmaids loved their make-ups, my mom was blown away and me, oh, I did not even know that I can look like that! J I was also asked by few guests after the wedding to get Maries contact details for their own weddings… If you manage to get Marie to do your make-up, you are definitely one step closer to your perfect day! She is excellent!

It was so nice to have someone I could trust and someone who could just walk into the room and be at ease with everyone. She really looked after everyone and listened to people's ideas on how they wanted to wear their make up. She came very well prepared and we were all really happy with the end results.

First of all let me say a huge thank you for the amazing job you did for our wedding on 29 December 2012. The make-up was perfect and it lasted so well that, other than the red lipstick, I didn’t have to touch it up once before I finally called it a day at 5am the next morning. Thank you so much again, I will be singing your praises to every bride to be!

Hi Marie,Sorry its so late. Thank you so much for all your help in getting all of us ready the morning of my wedding in February this year. Our makeup (5 of us in total) was done so beautifully and you also helped us out with a makeup emergency for a family member that morning as well. Nothing was too much trouble, you kept us all calm and collected and couldnt have asked for a better start to the day. Our make up stayed on all day and received so many compliments throughout the day. Yourself and Raina Moore (hair) are a great team and I have been singing you both huge praises to everyone I meet. Hope you are keeping well and no doubt busy!! Thanks again.

I just wanted to say thank you for everything last Saturday, all of our make up was perfect and lasted the whole day. It was our first wedding in the house and we thought the morning of the wedding would be crazy, with 4 of us and my 10 year old niece to get ready we thought it would be stressful but once yourself and Raina arrived you made it a really enjoyable morning, you put us all at ease and helped us to enjoy the preparations. You really set the tone for the day too, we felt relaxed all day and we all thought it was because you set the day off to such a good start! I am sure we will see you for our next wedding if not before, my Mam may be over too you sooner, she had never had her make up done before and she thought she was gorgeous! Thanks a million.

Having had disastrous results with a previous make up artist I was nervous about choosing one for my wedding day. I met Marie at a wedding show in Citywest and was instantly put at ease - not only by the examples of her work and clientele but the time and attention she took to talk to me about what she does on the wedding day, how to prepare your skin in the lead up and what I could expect on my trial. I was delighted with my trials as Marie listened to my preferences but also advised on how we could achieve the look for the day itself giving great pointers and tips along the way! On the day itself she was a true professional - making sure everyone was at ease and also calming tensions - she even helped me get into my dress when the nerves were kicking in around us. Best thing was working with the photographer to check the shots to ensure I looked at my best. I can’t recommend Marie highly enough – the compliments on the day (and after) specifically around my make up were overwhelming and the fact so many brides to be have asked for her details were testament in itself. I felt amazing and looking back on the photographs feel she really added to my day and the memories.

I had Marie for the make-up on the day for me, two mothers and two bridesmaids and she was just brilliant! With all the hassle around the house on the day, you want to work with someone relaxing, easy going and obviously somene to do a great job. Marie contributed much to a positive atmosphere on the morning of the wedding and kept us all calm and happy. The results were great and the makeup was there until the very end of the wedding at around 2am and almst looked as if it was just applied. I would definitely recommend Marie to anyone!

Nothing was a problem for her! The variety she has is impressive and she can advise you on skin regime and preparation for your big day at the make up trial. My make up lasted all day without one touch up and she made me look beautiful which is all a bride wants on her day. Thank you Marie for being such a wonderful person to meet and work with and I wish you continued success in all you do x

Hi Marie, I just wanted to send you a big thank you for all your help and support not only at my trials and via email but on our wedding day itself. All our make up was flawless and all the girls were delighted with themselves! I couldn't have been happier with my make up on the day I was getting endless compliments on it! You are an lovely warm hearted woman and I was so thrilled to have you with us on the day, your friendliness, profressionalism and experience was so comforting to me especially with 8 very different loud girls to deal with! It was an absolute delight and pleasure to have you be our make up artist and I cannot recommend you highly enough. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. All the best in the future

What can I say, Marie Joseph is the Godfather of makeup and particularly Wedding Makeup. A guru in her field. If you want a professional, expert, personalised job and most importantly flawless, glowing, radiant skin then Marie Joseph is the one to book for your big event. My experience started with a trial where I was talked through my skin care regime. While I thought my basic cleanse, tone and moisturise regime was good, I wasn't tackling my excess oil production problem. Marie doesn't sell products so it wasn't an add on. She recommended alternative products that would have me oil free by my wedding day and obviously beyond. I haven't looked back since. I wasn't a shiny mess and my make up didn't slide off my face...sound familiar? The make up application process was so personal. Marie has every brand, colour and cosmetic on the market that's worth having. I showed her an image of shades I liked. Marie agreed that they would compliment my colouring and made personal tweeks here and there. On completion Marie insisted that I was happy and asked for my honesty and would I like to change, brighten or darken anything. As it happened I didn't want to. She followed up with a phone call a few days after the trial to see how it lasted during the day and if there was anything I would like to change on the wedding day. She is so thorough. The whole bridal party looked fabulous including the VIMs (Very Important Mothers!). She understands skin of all ages. Our skin looked like velvet, it glowed. It wasn't caked but lasted all day. Every other feature was equally perfected. Eyes popped, cheekbones heightened, eyebrows framed, lips plumped! We quite simply looked and felt fabulous. An added extra and another area where Marie excels is on her own and basically the whole mornings timekeeping. She has so much experience and a realistic approach. She kept everyone on track...even the hairdresser! She is honestly an all rounder. A make up artist with a difference. A love and flair for makeup and a loyalty to her clients overall enjoyment of the wedding preparations. Marie Joseph, you are a legend. I salute you!

My wedding is on the 21st of April 2012 had my wedding trial on the 13th of April with Marie, my sis Jo came along also. We had a fantastic time with Marie, boy did we both walk away with allot of very very helpful hints! Most importantly I felt amazing and now the whole wedding party (7 girls) cannot wait to have our make done. The before and after shots really went down well!!! As for the lovely follow up email Marie sent outlining our new skin routine we are super impressed!!

I had my trial with Marie and couldn't believe the result, she made me look completely flawless without caking the make-up on, I looked so natural yet glamorous, my mother, who never wears make up can't wait to get hers done either. Her experience really shows and she makes you feel completely at ease, can't wait for my wedding day now!

I want to thank you for the wonderful work you did on the morning of our wedding (23/7/11). The make up stayed in place for the entire day and I didn't have to touch it, apart from the lipstick - which you had with you on the day thankfully!!!The fact that the bridesmaids' make up didn't budge all day is a testament to the fact that you're a genius! They were crying for most of the day and they couldn't believe that they were still in one piece by the end of the night.My mum was absolutely thrilled with her make up and you made her feel like an absolute star for the entire day, so thank you so much for that.Your time keeping skills are impeccable and as a result we arrived at the church on time.

I would just like to say a BIG big thank you to the fantastic magician of make-up that is Marie Joseph. I went for a trial as I'm getting married next september. Needless to say, I came home smiling. Marie is a master at what she does and yet is so lovely and approachable, even going through a skin care regieme with me for the months ahead. I highly reccomend her to any bride out there looking for a pro!!!!

Hello Marie. I hope you are keeping well. I just wanted to email to thank you so much for the wonderful and amazing job you did with myself and the girls make up on my wedding day (10 Sept 2010). We were all thrilled with the results. I recall you asked me for a photograph. We recently received the wedding photo's from our photographer and wonder what type of picture you would like? If you like I can email you some through and you can pick from that bunch. Thanks again Marie. Best wishes,

I was attempting to organise our recent Dublin wedding all the way from New Zealand, so what a relief it was to meet Marie. She fitted me into a busy schedule, and made sure I was happy with the trial and wedding day make up. She even helped me source a equally skilled hair dresser for the day. Thanks Marie!

I have had the pleasure of having my makeup done by both Marie and Debby. Debby did the makeup for my friend's wedding 2 years ago for which I was a bridesmaid and then I was lucky to get Marie to do the makeup for my own wedding in November of last year. All I can say about Marie and Debby is that you will not find more skilled and professional makeup artists. They both have huge experience with weddings so are incredibly easy to work with on that very hectic morning. I would highly recommend them both.
