The girls looked so natural and beautiful and my mum was glowing! I couldn’t be happier. It has been such a pleasure working with you for my trial and especially on the big day. Your relaxed nature and enthusiasm for what you do has made it a really enjoyable experience. Thank you so much for your huge contribution to our wedding day. ”

I had to tell everyone i was wearing extra make-up, no one noticed which is a good thing! everyone thought that these were my real lashes!. I was just so happy with the way it has turned out and lasted so long – just wanted to say thanks again.”

Alexis Heggerty Trial feedback

“Kirsty and her team at Double Take Makeup Artistry are outstanding. Right from the initial booking to the wedding day was such a smooth and enjoyable process for me. What I love about Kirsty is her attention to detail, warmness, expert opinion and her ability to get across the detail of your wedding and advise on the best looks to ensure you and your bridesmaids look incredible on the day. She conducts a full comprehensive trial before your day where you talk colours and all things makeup and hair! She uses the best products, more expensive than my make-up bag! Her technique is of such a high standard.
On the day Kirsty and her team create such a fun atmosphere, it’s something I’ll always remember about my day.A special thank you to Emma for creating amazing hairstyles for my me and my bridesmaids, she has this amazing ability to look at a hairstyle in magazine you’ve collected and re-create the same look 30 mins later which looks incredible.”

Rebecca Borrington 11/01/13 (Mosman, Sydney)

“One of the many reasons I chose you to do our hair and makeup on our wedding day was because I read a testimonial on your Facebook page from a client who was interstate and commended you on how amazing you were for picking up an image and creating exactly what they wanted without ever having a trial or meeting you prior to their big day. I couldn’t agree with them more!
You both astound me with your talent to create exactly what we wanted from looking at an image once or twice or for matching us to the right makeup to make us look as natural as possible.
Living interstate and planning a wedding isn’t an easy task but you both were so friendly and easy to communicate with on the day and also via email correspondence leading up to the big day. You made us all look and feel amazing! Everything felt so organized and both of you were consistent and timely which made the morning preparations come together so easily.
It was clear to see you both love what you do and for that you got a lot of comments throughout the day on the amazing job you did on our sisters, mums, bridesmaids, myself and who can forget our little flower girl! Thanks also, for your patience and allowing our little flower girl to play with bits and bobs to keep her amused for the morning.
I can’t say enough about what an amazing job you did on all our hair and makeup, everything stayed in perfect tact for the entire day and if I had it my way I’d have my eye makeup done like that every day!”

TaraLee Holloway 23/02/13 (Central Coast)

“I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for the amazing job you did on our wedding day. The girls were all so happy with the job that you and Emma did, especially my mum. I was so excited to see how my hair and makeup would turn out and it was perfect. It stayed in all night and my makeup still looked fresh at 2am when we finished. Thanks again so much and all the best with everything.”

Amanda Tobin 09/09/12(Hunter Valley)

“I would just like to write a quick message to you to let you know how happy I was with my makeup on my wedding day. It was absolutely magnificent, as well as, all of my bridesmaids. I was a little bit naughty and went to sleep with my make up on, and when I woke up in the morning it was still perfect. My eyelashes are still on now – which is awesome! Not only did you do an outstanding job on all of our faces you were excellent in distressing me when things got a little emotional. Thank you so much and I will be defiantly be recommending you to my friends and family.”

Laura Jones 28/09/12 (Hunter Valley)

“You were fantastic and we had heaps of comments on our makeup!!! We all loved our makeup – it was perfect and we couldn’t have been happier! We all felt amazing and looked it too! You’re so lovely to work with and it was really chilled out leading up to the wedding – I can’t compliment you enough If you lived in Sydney I’d have my makeup done by you all the time!!!”

I realise its been a good few months now, but wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how much I appreciate how wonderful and professional you were when working on our wedding.
