Colette is a true professional. She has a wealth of experience – both as a make-up artist and in the cosmetics industry – and it shines through. She has a comprehensive knowledge of the latest and most effective products and was able to mix and match for different skin-types. I got married in Scotland but live in London, and Colette was brilliant at keeping in touch as our plans progressed. She was extremely flexible and conducted two separate trials for myself, my mum and my bridesmaids, taking notes and photographs to ensure she was able to replicate even the tiniest detail on the big day. Thanks to Colette’s expert application, I didn’t need to touch-up my make-up once! Most importantly, Colette is fun, flexible and was a joy to be with on the morning of the wedding. She was extremely calm, despite facing a full house of four bridesmaids, and a nervous mother-of-the-bride and bride! I can’t thank her enough for helping us all look so beautiful.

Colette is an excellent make up artist who really knows what she is doing and very passionate about it. I really really loved the make up she did for my sister (the bride) and myself (bridesmaid) it was amazing, I was a bit unsure whether she would get the right shade as no make up artist ever gets my right shade but our make up was perfect. I would recommend her a million times.

Colette Casher was recommended to me by Mette Baillie, of Bridal by Freja.
I’d been to a couple of wedding shows and was disappointed to see no black brides in the MUA’s portfolio’s. I knew I wanted my make up done professionally on my wedding day. Putting on make up isn’t something I’ve ever been confident doing myself and have always worn minimal make up because of this.
My fiance, Angie doesn’t wear make up and was so sure she didn’t want her make up done on our wedding day until she came home the day of my make up trial and saw Colette’s work, Angie was thrilled. Angie and I are in a same sex relationship and when I researched for a MUA, I wanted to work with someone who was able to show diversity in the range of clients they had.
Angie and my Best Woman, Rachel, were extremely nervous about wearing make up for the wedding, but in all our cases Colette dealt with any of our concerns, completely put us at ease and filling us with confidence.
Colette kept in touch with Angie and I leading up to the big day, making sure we were ok and confirming the plans for the day well in advance, so we had nothing to worry about.
On the day Colette was relaxed and professional throughout. Although the morning of your wedding can be a little nerve racking to say the least, Colette was amazing, in great humour and even helping me get into my wedding dress….now that’s service for you!
On the day, I felt a million dollars and am so glad I was able to have Colette as our MUA, she made a very special occasion stress free for us all.
For Christmas I got a make up lesson with Colette from Angie, this is fab as it will definitely build my confidence in applying my own make up.

A huge thank you to Colette who came to my aid after being let down by a local beauticians just a week before my wedding. Colette did the make up for my two bridesmaids and my mum, and they all looked simply stunning and flawless all day! I cant find enough words to express how amazing this lady is, my sincerest thank you’s for making my wedding morning go so smoothly, and making my bridesmaids feel so special πŸ™‚ xx

I recently got married in Nov 2015 and choose Colette to do my make up for our Big Day . I could not recommend Colette enough. I was a little nervous as I had a few trials prior to being recommend Colette that I really didn’t like. However Colette was amazing, from the moment she came through the door she made me feel so confident that she was going to do a great job. She listen to exactly what I was looking for and spend so much of her time making sure very thing was perfect. Colette is a true professional at her job and very friendly lady, I felt very as ease with her. I loved my wedding make up and it last well into the evening all I needed to do was top up lippy late evening which Colette had advised which one to get to. Thank you so much Colette you are amazing!

Colette is really great! She did my makeup for my friends wedding, where I was a bridesmaid. She listened to my ideas and took her time to get the right shade for my base. She was very friendly and put me at ease straight away. I got a lot of compliments and the makeup stayed on all day. Would definitely recommend her. Thank you Colette.

I was recently a bride and choose Colette as my make up artist for “my big day”, to make myself and my five bridesmaid’s, mother of the bride and my daughter’s make up.
Colette was fantastic, she has a very warm and pleasant manor and makes you feel at ease. Colette listens to what you would like, while respectfully, giving you other suggestions to help improve your look.
She is very punctual, reliable and flexible with appointments, also keeps you updated with the do’s and dont’s of skin care, which is fab πŸ™‚ I loved my make up and my bridal party looked beautiful.

Colette came to my hotel on the 17 October to do myself and my sister in laws wedding makeup for my sons wedding. Straight away she put me at ease and was really friendly and easy to talk to. I explained to her that I wanted to look natural as I don’t wear any makeup usually. She made a brilliant job on both of us and I had many compliments on how young I looked (which was down to the makeup). I would definitely recommend her and wouldn’t hesitate to contact her again if the occasion occurred.

I cannot recommend highly enough Colette Casher as a make-upnartist. Myself and my sister-in-law recently had our wedding make-up done by Colette, and the end result was amazing. Colette was very professional and knowledgeable, turning up with a staggering amount of make-up, she asked questions throughout ensuring that the result achieved was the result I was looking for, taking her time throughout. Colette was very friendly, warm and a pleasure to work with. The make-up lasted all day and looked incredible, thanks very much Colette.

My mum and I recently had our make up trials with Colette ahead of my wedding in October. Colette did an amazing job – we both loved the looks that she created for us. I would highly recommend Colette to anyone looking for a make up artist – she is not only an amazing make up artist, she is friendly, down to earth and listens to what you want. She also gives lots of tips and advice for applying your own make up which I have found really helpful!

I was bridesmaid to my beautiful sister in law and Colette did such an amazing job. She listened to what we usually wore and checked with us all the way through that we liked how she was doing our makeup. I was ready for the day feeling confident with my lovely makeup and hair. The makeup also stayed put for the whole day even after an evening on the dance floor. A big thank you to collette for her expertise and kindness on jens special day! Wish there was another collette in Norfolk!!

I was a bridesmaid for an Edinburgh wedding earlier this month. We were very late in booking a make-up artist and did not give ourselves time to all have trials, especially as one bridesmaid lived in Oxford! Colette worked around all of this so generously. She started very early and actually picked us up to drive us to the location. She designed a look that really complimented our outfits and that we could all share, despite our different colourings. It was really relaxing and fun having our make up done and it felt like it was all finished in no time, despite us taking all morning to get ready! She was very patient as we each ran off to change or get our hair done. We all loved our look, and it lasted well all day and really made the photographs. Colette was skilled, considerate and generous with her time. I would very much recommend Colette for your wedding day.

Colette was absolutely lovely and made my bridesmaids, mum and I all feel wonderful on my wedding day. She was very helpful in guiding us to colours and looks that would suit us, and gave us really helpful advice on getting smooth, clear skin for the big day. I couldn’t have been happier with the beautiful looks she create for us all and really looking forward to seeing our beautiful wedding photos!

Colette has been fantastic to work with. I found her very approachable, friendly, professional and fabulously skilful. When I looked at the result in the mirror I thought I could easily go to hang out with other celebrities on the red carpet. If you’re looking for a make-up artist for your big day or any other special occasion, look no further!

Colette came to my daughter’s home to do a make up trial for her and for me, as mother of the bride. She was extremely professional and friendly and took all the time needed to ensure that we both got the look we wanted for the big day. She is a true artist and I would recommend her unreservedly. We look forward to her creating make up magic on the wedding day itself and the bonus is that she will come to us to do this despite an early start.

There can be no better person to put you at your ease when having yr first makeup experience, having successfully avoided makeup for 40+ years’ I was very apprehensive about the whole prospect and within 5 mins I was at ease in Colette’s company n v soon enjoying the process as I felt I was in v safe hands – wanting to know what I wanted rather than telling me what I needed. Great knowledge of skin, products n colour with a fantastic customer centric approach – what’s not to recommend? A consummate professional.

It was very important for me to find a Make Up Artist who I would feel at ease with and who was confident working with black skin. During my make up trial Colette’s knowledge and expertise were clear. Colette listened to my concerns, and basically did an amazing job, I can’t wait until the actual day. I’d definitely recommend Colette!

Emma Henderson November 6, 2015

I had had a bad experience with a make up trial so close to my wedding I was very apprehensive. It was such a relief to find Colette. She has such an extensive knowledge of her craft she made me feel at ease immediately. I do not normally wear false eyelashes, eyeshadow and lipstick. But, Colette reassured me they would look good and they looked great! As a black woman I thought it would be difficult to get my make up right but, Colette was spot on. Thank you!

Colette did my the make up for my sisters wedding and the bridal party, she made me feel relaxed and after seeing the trial my sister had i was more than confident on the day even without having a trial myself. I had compliments all day about how perfect the make up was and the clear attention to detail and i am still receiving them by people looking at the photos. Colette will 100% be the go to recommendation for anyone who asks myself! Thanks again

Colette did my make up for my sister’s wedding last week. She was amazing! I was “sprung” on her at short notice (the morning of the wedding) and it didn’t phase her. She was very knowledgeable, confident working with black skin and gave me lots of tips. I had lots of compliments on my make up and it lasted all day and night. Thanks Collette!

Colette did my make up as a wedding guest last month. The result was great, very flattering and long lasting. I liked her knowledge of products and she gave me useful tips during the procedure. Everyone commented on how lovely my make up was. I would definately recommend Colette to anyone.

Colette did my make up & my mums for my wedding. I was at first not that fused about having my makeup done but thought I would meet with Colette and see how it went. She is a great friendly girl that clearly knows about makeup. She was a real pleasure to have around on the morning of my wedding. She wanted everything to be perfect & having seen some photos I think it was. Thank you so so much Colette!!

Colette did make up for myself the bride, my three bridesmaid and my Mum for my wedding in July. She is a very knowledgable make up artist who listened to what I was looking for. She made me feel at ease during my trial and on the day of the wedding. She travelled to my venue Carlowrie Castle which made the process so much easier. My make up with stood the warm weather and ceilidh dancing. I would highly recommend Colette to any Bride. Thanks for all your help and support

When it comes to make up, I am a complete amateur, have very sensitive skin and my past experiences of make overs have not always been positive. But recently I’ve had the absolute pleasure of Colette doing my make up for a friend’s wedding. I now know why Colette’s business is called make up artistry. She really is a true artist, a magician even! She puts you instantly at ease, is a great laugh and just works effortlessly. She very carefully listened to my ideas and wishes, checked my outfit to make sure the make up compliments it, and in a very short time absolutely transformed my tired 7-months pregnant skin into a glowing and younger looking version of myself. I didn’t think anyone can do that! I felt fabulous and was amazed by the transformation! The whole experience was like having tea and cake with your best friend. The products she uses are top quality, have caused my sensitive skin absolutely no problems and actually made my skin look great even the second day, and lasted the entire night without needing to be touched up. It was so lovely to receive genuine compliments from other wedding guests, which made the evening even more special. This was the third time Colette has done my make up and every time was completely professional and just made me feel amazing. I can only wish Colette would do my make up every day! I can highly recommend Colette and already have to all my friends. She is a true make up artist. Thank you so much for the fun session and making me feel so amazing. Wishing you all the best,

What a wonderful job, what a wonderful make-up artist, she made my wedding day! 5 stars is not enough, Colette deserves …10 instead of 5 stars. At long last a make-up artist who knows and does exactly what you need and want and not what she likes….! For the first time ever I felt very natural looking and that is exactly what I wanted…I am so tired of make-up artists overpainting you. I wanted a natural look and got this with Colette – thank you! I would recommend Colette to anyone who is looking for an extremely friendly but very professional make-up artist. My wedding make up was just perfect and lasted the whole day and night! Colette knows exactly what suits you, puts you at ease, and is very concerned about you and the look you want. She is a wonderful person and a brilliant make-up artist!

Cheryl Murrie November 6, 2015

Fantastic! There were 6 of us, the bride, 4 bridesmaids and myself. We had make-up trials which meant that on the day of the wedding Colette knew exactly what we were looking for. I was first to have my make-up done at 07.15 – a very early start but absolutely necessary to ensure there was time for hair appointments etc. My make-up was still very much in place the following morning at 03.00! Colette is a lovely girl and very easy to have in your house on what is a special day for everyone – she fitted right in! I would highly recommend her.

Colette is wonderful! I was very worried about my wedding make-up as 1. I don’t wear much make-up normally and 2. I get very oily skin! I needn’t have worried though as Colette listened to what I wanted and carried that out perfectly. My make-up was natural yet stunning and my skin stayed oil and shine free all day! I highly recommend Colette.

Colette is just simply amazing! After a horrendous trial with a different MUA I was very worried about my make up for our big day but from the moment I met Colette at a wedding fayre my mind was put at ease and I knew she was the perfect choice for myself and bridal party! From start to finish she was a top class professional going over all choices and listening to our ideas and bringing them to life! All of our make up turned out beautifully and lasted all day long with no budging! I couldn’t recommend her more for all brides to be looking for the perfect make up, you will not be disappointed!

Colette did my make up for my wedding and I loved the whole experience she gave me. She took the time to do a trial of different shades and colours to get what I wanted to achieve. My make up was flawless all day and everyone commented on the glow I had. Would definitely recommend Colette for any special day.

Michelle Graham November 6, 2015

Colette did my make up for a family wedding. We used the trial to work out what colours would suit me better and that would also compliment my outfit. She certainly knew her stuff and had me in colours that I would never have tried alone. Even on the wedding day itself ( and with a complete change of outfit for me ) she knew exactly what would suit me best. I wanted to look natural and fresh faced and she certainly gave me that! The make up lasted all day and night, I only had to touch up my lipstick. Colette is a lovely, friendly lady that I would highly recommend. Her prices are very reasonable too!

Colette did make up for my Mum, one bridesmaid and myself for my wedding in June. Not only did she make sure we were all looking our best – we had a great morning chatting and laughing with her. I also really appreciated the tips she gave me for when applying my own make up. We had a very lively ceilidh (and some happy tears throughout the day) yet our make up didn’t move at all! Would highly recommend Colette to any bride!
