“Frances is actually a bit of a hero of mine, as unfortunately a friend of mine who was going to do my bridal makeup pulled out a couple of day’s before the wedding.  Leaving me in a bit of a panic!  I quickly got in touch with Frances after seeing her amazing portfolio online, and was relieved that she was available.  However, with no time to have a makeup trial I was a little apprehensive!  When Frances arrived she was simply wonderful, she made me feel so at ease and relaxed and my skin and makeup have never looked that flawless.  There are no ways to say how utterly grateful I am to her x”
