When you are skilled, your decisions become instinctive and this is what you get with Jules, her advice was counter-intuitive for me, but it was right. Following years of the same old makeup routine I knew I needed a change, but also someone to convince me of those changes without selling a brand. Jules was confident in her advice and able to recommend the most appropriate products for my needs, across a variety of prices, but not driven by marketing. A great consultation, would recommend (and have!) to anyone.
Jules is a true magician with colour and can help to make the right choices. Since I had my session with her, I am very relaxed about my make up: I know which colours, products and techniques are perfect for me and what I should avoid. Saves hassle, time and money. To put it in a nutshell: A session with Jules will not only transform your make-up for a day, but also your understanding of make-up and the subtleties of colour. A worthwhile investment, I think.
I have always enjoyed make-up but wasn't confident about which looks suited me. Jules showed me 3 different looks which are easy for me to follow for daytime and evening and recommended some lovely make-up to buy. Jules made the experience feel really pampering and showed me exactly how to recreate each look. I now feel much more confident about choosing and applying my make-up. I now wear less make-up on a daily basis with my "natural" look but I know how to create a more interesting look for those occasions when I want to feel more made-up.
After years of hit and miss makeup I really enjoyed discovering makeup techniques and colours that best suit my face, all with natural and ethically made makeup! Jules knew exactly what I needed and was incredible at delivering her expertise in a 2-hour session. Now I need to practice! Jules has a very professional, kind and thoughtful approach.
Thank you for the beautiful make-over, for our big event. It went perfectly with the red dress and made me feel fantastic all evening so thank you!
I had a charity event and Jules did my makeup a few months ago and I was very happy with the results!
I don't usually wear a lot of makeup and I wasn't sure how to really describe my vision. I needed someone who was not only talented with makeup but also able to get to know someone and "know" the perfect look. Jules is just that! She is so knowledgeable, asked great questions and took the time to explain everything and share tips with me.
I loved the way I looked and I had many compliments later that evening. It felt really comfortable as well. Also my make up lasted all night.
Jules is the definition of an artist. As musicians, it is important to communicate music visually. Jules translated our music into a visceral visual format with her subtle, exceptional techniques and calming energy.
Jules instinctively knew what would make me feel comfortable and how to bring out my best features. I have never seen myself look so good in photos! I really appreciated the calm environment she created. Her professionalism, confidence and relaxed nature soothed my nerves on my big day. I had no need to recommend her as when my friends saw how I looked they all wanted her for their weddings!
Fortunately I found Jules. From initial contact, trial and then the big day itself everything ran smoothly. All my fears of looking like a clown or clogged up with make up went away during the trial, Jules listened to what I wanted and made suggestions when I had no idea. She's also some kind of magician as the bags I had been carrying around under my eyes for years completely disappeared! The end result on my photos is amazing.
On the day, Jules turned up right on time and had myself and my two bridesmaids (who were also delighted with their make up) done right on the dot. There were no hidden extras in terms of travel cost, minimum numbers or insisting to do hair as well. In short, I was really pleased with the service Jules provided, it was stress free and of the highest quality. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Jules has a wonderful, calming presence and I had full confidence in her on my wedding day to give me the look I wanted. I had a great trial and she really took the time to discuss what I wanted. As often happens, I changed my mind on the big day and wanted a slightly more natural look around the eyes and she had no problem adapting on the spot and I was very pleased with the results. The makeup seemed light, transparent and natural which was what I wanted and it lasted through the night. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
It is an absolute pleasure to have had Jules with me on my wedding morning. She is a professional through and through, she is focused, she understands what her client wants and delivers beyond expectations while being a lovely person. I can't recommend her highly enough.
I cannot thank Jules enough for my amazing wedding makeup. I received lots of compliments and truly felt like a princess.
When we first met for a trial she was very professional, asked about the wedding dress and my ideas. Then she created a perfect makeup and I was absolutely amazed.
On the day Jules was punctual, very organized and followed the notes she had previously taken. What is more she advised me how to relax which I am so grateful for because It helped me a lot before and during the ceremony.
Jules is not only an outstanding makeup artist but also a very calm, friendly and kind person and I believe this is important during wedding preparations.
My makeup looked out of this world and lasted for the whole day and night. I would highly recommend Jules and definitely will be contacting her in the future.
