Amazing make-up
Lara was wonderful when she came to do my make-up for my wedding. I so wish I could have her do my wedding every day. On top of being so talented, she was so kind and patient with me. I’m so glad I chose her for my wedding day.

A very talented lady
I can not recommend Lara Champion enough. Lara is extremely talented and her years of experience in make up shine through. Lara impressed me by matching make up to my skin tone instantly, she made gorgeous suggestions whilst listening to what tones I felt comfortable with. On my wedding day Lara was calm and professional and completed make up for me and my two bridesmaids in a timely and relaxing manner with no fuss at all. She made us look and feel a million dollars!

Lara is The perfect person to have around on your wedding day!
From the very first message, throughout the trial and on the day she is kind, helpful and extremely talented! Lara listens to your ideas or in my case, my lack of (!)and talks you through different shades and tones that go together and compliment your skin tone. During the make-up trial Lara felt like an old friend as she is so easy to chat to and has a real calming effect which is much needed, especially on a busy wedding day morning! We were thrilled with our make-up and especially my mam who was uworried about looking too make-upy!. Everyone commented on how natural we looked and the make-up lasted all day and night through laughter, tears and dancing! The only downside is not having Lara available to do your make-up every day!!!

From beast to beauty!
Lara really made my big day start off in the most special way. I think she is a magician not a make up artist as she made me feel like a princess on the day. My bridesmaids looked stunning too thanks to her magic hands. From the bottom of my heart thank you.

Lovely lady and makes you feel special
Lara has been a friend for many years but last week was the first time my daughter in law and I had her to do our make-up. I don't wear make-up a lot but loved how she did mine and felt really good looking in the mirror. She is a lovely lady and will make you feel SPECIAL.
