From the minute Karen came into our house on the morning of my wedding, she made my bridal party and I feel completely at ease and relaxed. Karen is so down to earth and easy to chat to. She had 7 of us that morning. She took her time on us and gave myself and the girls the makeup look we all looked for. I looked flawless and felt beautiful and stayed like that all day. I could not recommend Karen enough. She is a very talented lady.

Thank you so much for doing my makeup on my wedding day Karen. You did an amazing job and you did exactly what I asked for. My makeup looked so natural on the day, and I looked like myself which is what I wanted. My makeup lasted the whole day and night which was brilliant. You were so easy to work with and it was a pleasure to have you in the house on the morning. Thank you.

Thank you Karen for doing the makeup for my bridal party and I. We all looked fab and the makeup lasted all day despite the sweltering heat and emotional tears!

Thanks Karen. You were an absolute pleasure to have with us the morning of my wedding. No panic or drama, just relaxed banter and craic..perfect for keeping myself and my bridesmaids in check. Your makeup application was fabulous- despite drizzle, a long day and dance floor antics, my face barely needed a touch-up, yet looked natural as can be. I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone!

Thank you so much Karen for the stunning makeup on the 15th July……not that it was a major surprise as you’ve always done an amazing job. It was fun having you at the house. Thanks for making me feel a billion bucks! You’re the best.

Thanks again for looking after me, my Mam & bridesmaids on my special day. You were a pleasure to have there on the morning. The makeup you did for us all was fantastic, wouldn’t have changed it for anything. Would recommend you to anyone.

Just a quick message to thank you so much again on Saturday morning! Your reputation precedes you & you absolutely live up to it. We had a fab time with you that morning and your easy going approach kept us all relaxed. Everyone kept commenting on how fantastic our makeup was. You even made my 75 year old Mam feel like she was in her 30s again-she got so many compliments, she was chuffed. The makeup was flawless on us all ( only requiring minimal touch ups during the day on our shiny noses & foreheads from all the dancing ) & was still immaculate when we were leaving the residents bar at 5 a.m.! Thanks again so much.

I chose Karen Reeves Makeup for my Wedding Day in May 2014. Having previously on separate occasions had my makeup done by Karen, I fell in love with her work, particularly her unique passion for Bridal Makeup. Karen’s natural flair & professionalism in ‘knowing what works best’ shone through. As my Bridal trial with Karen went so well, I used the opportunity for an engagement photo shoot! My Bridal Makeup on the day I can only describe as ‘flawless’, along with my Bridesmaids. It meant so much to me, and thank you sincerely. Keep doing what you know & do best.

Karen Reeves without a shadow of a doubt is one of the best & most talented makeup artists in the industry. I have been a client of of Karen’s for five years & she continues to amaze me with her skill every time I visit. I entrusted Karen with one of the most special days of my life ‘my wedding day’. She did a spectacular job on myself, my mother & my bridal party. She was beyond professional. You always leave Karen looking & feeling like a movie star.

Just a quick message to say many thanks for last Friday. We had a great morning filled with laughter & entertainment. Yourself & Sara are a wonderful duo to have the pleasure of meeting. Everyone in the bridal party could not speak highly enough about you both. You are very professional & a delight, putting people at ease with reassurance. Many, many thanks.

I booked Karen for myself & my bridal party after seeing her fabulous work on her Facebook Page. The looks Karen created for us all perfectly complemented the entire bridal party. She has a unique talent in knowing what suits all individuals. Her professionalism & attention to detail is second to none. Karen is so warm & friendly, & she made me feel so calm & comfortable on such a busy morning. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough. She is fabulous at what she does & great fun to have around.

Weddings tend to be booked well in advance of the big day. Once you have chosen your wedding date, it is advisable to contact Karen as quickly as possible if you wish to secure a booking. Friday and Saturday weddings are in high demand throughout the year.
