Fiona did my makeup for my wedding and she was fantastic! Not only was she so talented but she was so engaged and a pleasure to have with us on the day. She created beautiful looks for myself. my mum and bridesmaids and was such a calming influence the whole way through the morning. She is so engaged and such a lovely person that she added to the fun and sense of occasion. I would book her in a second for any events I have in the future.

From the very moment I first spoke with Fiona on the phone I instantly relaxed and knew that she would be the perfect Make Up Artist for my Wedding Day. And I was totally right! We then first met at my trial and after a brief chat she instantly created the exact look I hoped for. No tweaks required. I loved how I looked and as a result felt so much so that I didn’t want to remove my make-up later that night.Fiona is a beautiful person inside and out and was such a wonderfully calming influence on the Wedding morning. She is a consummate professional, organised, reliable and an absolute expert and master of her craft. She seamlessly recreated my look on my Wedding Day so that I looked and felt like the best version of myself. She is an absolute perfectionist. My Mum and Bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning also. Our make-up lasted all day. Fiona delivered an exceptional service throughout with lots of hidden extras included that enhanced the experience.I can’t thank you enough, Fiona! Don’t hesitate to book her for your Wedding.

Fiona did my make-up for my wedding and to say she was amazing would be an understatement. From trial to the day itself she went above and beyond. She is not only a consummate professional but you can tell she is extremely passionate about her work and it shows in how she interacts with each person and how much work she puts into her craft. She was also such a calming influence on the morning, I couldn’t recommend Fiona more.

Fiona was my makeup artist for my wedding and to say she went above and beyond doesn’t do her justice. Not only did she have the pressure of a wedding but our family ended up grieving the day of, adding an extra layer of unusual emotion. Even though there were wobbles, it was Fiona who was able to calm everyone down, particularly my mum, she just knew what to say to help her get through the day.At the trial, Fiona really listened to my ideas of what I wanted and provided affordable product recommendations to help in the lead up to the wedding, that I still use to this day. I was so happy with my makeup and it lasted all day and night like you would want for your big day.Overall, if you’re looking for a makeup artist particularly for your wedding, Fiona ticks all the boxes and more, don’t hesitate to book her.

I am so so thankful I had Fiona Harrison there on my special day to do my make-up! She TRULY went OVER AND ABOVE what you would expect from a MUA. She was early, she set up beautifully, had individual brushed for myself and each bridesmaid. She made sure each of us felt comfortable and stunning in our make-up! Fiona didn't rush off as soon as she was done, but stayed around right until the very end to ensure everything was just right! Fiona was so professional, excellent and I was so thrilled that I had her to make me feel naturally beautiful on my wedding day! THANK YOU FIONA! Forever grateful.Photographers: Adam and Grace Photography

Fiona did the makeup for my mum, sister and I on my wedding day and I couldn't recommend her highly enough! At my trial Fiona gave me all the time in the world and listened to every thought and concern I had. She gave me fantastic skincare advice and even gave me a call after the trial to make sure I was happy with every part - excellent service. On the morning of the wedding, Fiona was professional and created such an atmosphere of fun and excitement. Can't wait until another family member gets married and I can book her in again! Thank you ☺️

Fiona did my bridal makeup as well as makeup for my mum and four bridesmaids on the day. We all ADORED our makeup and it stayed on so well despite the SERIOUS challenges of the sun, dancing and in my case happy sobbing during the speeches! Fiona is so calm and professional even with so much to get done and I loved that we each had a fully sanitised set of brushes.The wedding trail was great - Fiona listened to exactly what I wanted and encouraged me to tell her any little tweaks I was thinking of so that it was exactly what I pictured on the day.Would definitely recommend!

Fiona did my bridal makeup and my four bridesmaids' makeup for my wedding day. She was incredibly professional and personable and really created a calm but fun environment for us getting ready on the day.Fiona worked hand in glove with our hairstylist Marina as well which really made the whole process run smoothly! The makeup was perfect on me and the girls, everyone looked beautiful and felt great. We got lots of compliments and the makeup lasted all day with not a touch up needed. I would highly recommend Fiona!

Fiona facilitated an online makeup and skin care class for a group of friends during lockdown. It was great fun and something different to do on another tedious Saturday night at home. We had booked an hour, but we were still all chatting 2 hours later. Fiona was great. We had so much fun and she knows her stuff. She had lots of fabulous tips and hacks. I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She is great! i can't wait to visit her in person as soon as we can!

I met Fiona in 2011 when I was lucky to have chosen her to do wedding makeup for myself and my wedding party. She was extremely professional, ontime, very talkative and really down to earth she kept me so calm.She has done make up on me since aswell for other weddings and nights out, and has advised me on products to use on my skin as its aging now. I would highly recommend Fiona, she really knows her business inside and out

I was lucky enough to have Fiona looking after my bridal makeup on my wedding day - I couldn’t recommend her services more highly! From the very first moment I met her she made me feel relaxed and she was so passionate about making my special day the best experience ever. My trial was so much fun and ensured I was absolutely happy with everything on the day. She also catered for the different needs of my bridesmaids as they each had slightly difference preferences. I can’t thank Fiona enough, just wish I could do it all over again!

Fiona is incredible!!! I booked her for my wedding at the back end of last year. She is a consummate professional, my makeup was exactly what I wanted and lasted all day and night. On top of that Fiona was so helpful and helped me find a hair stylist for my wedding day also. Fiona checked in with me ahead of my wedding to decide looks, unfortunately a trial was not possible due to lockdown restrictions at the time so Fiona made sure to check in with me and discuss different looks. She paid such attention, was simply brilliant and is the loveliest person! I can’t recommend her enough!!

Fiona did my makeup for my wedding day. She was an absolute pleasure to work with; starting with the makeup trial, during which she gave me skincare tips to the day itself. She was so professional throughout. She listened to what I wanted and delivered a make up look that I was so happy with. Her relaxed manner made for a great start to the day. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Fiona to friends - thank you so much Fiona.

I found Fiona via One Fab Day a couple of weeks before my last minute wedding. She kindly moved a few things around to squeeze me in, and from the moment our trial started I was in fantastic hands. Fiona listened to just what I wanted and created an absolutely perfect look. She used gorgeous high-end products to create a flawless base, and above all I still looked like myself just better! On the morning of the wedding, Fiona was an absolute dream to have with us. She had a totally calming presence despite being busy making up six of us. Everyone’s makeup was totally tailored to their own style and preferences and all of us loved it. My makeup lasted all day and night. I can’t recommend Fiona highly enough and I definitely hope to work with her again in future.

Fiona did my makeup for my wedding and I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She was so friendly and professional and really listened to what I was looking for right from the start. She was so accommodating with all the chaos of changing wedding plans thanks to covid and she really put me at ease on the morning of the wedding.My make up was perfect and lasted all night - I couldn't have asked for more. I would book Fiona again in a heartbeat for any excuse to get my makeup done!

I had Fiona do my makeup for my wedding day; she was absolutely amazing. She really went above and beyond for me. From the makeup trial, to the skincare tips in advance of the big day she was available at all times. She had thoughtful little goodie bags of mints and tissues for all members of the wedding party on the morning and she used top quality makeup which did not move throughout the day. She listens to what you want and really has the professional skills to deliver it. You can completely count on her. But more than that; she is genuinely a lovely person. You can chat away to her and she puts you at ease and completely shares in the excitement of your big day. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Fiona did my makeup for my wedding in September and I couldn't recommend her enough. She followed every protocol for covid safety. She listened carefully to what I wanted. She created a natural yet glamorous look. Not only did she do an amazing job on all of our make up she was a lovely calming presence on the morning. She went above and beyond to mind us all and make sure we had a good time and felt beautiful. If looking for a make up artist book her now!

What can I say about Fiona, from the minute I met her she put me at ease, she is professional and so friendly, really chatty and listens to what you want. After my trial Fiona went above and beyond sending me skin care tips and links to products. The morning of our wedding she kept everything calm and everyone's makeup was amazing,she stayed until we were walking out the door handing us tissues as we went. I cant recommend her more highly and will defo use her again if we have an occasion.

Not only is Fiona an extremely talented makeup artist, she is also incredibly kind and just a genuinely lovely person. I got married in August 2020 after my original wedding in Italy was cancelled due to Covid restrictions. It was really stressful trying to organise a backup plan with a few weeks notice. From the first time I contacted her to see if she had availability, Fiona was so helpful and even hooked me up with the most amazing hair stylist! Shout out to Martina King! Fiona is a consummate professional and strictly adhered to the Covid guidelines throughout both my trial and on the wedding day. At the trial, Fiona assessed my skin and advised on the best colours and makeup to suit my skin. I was so happy with my makeup on the day - it was exactly the look I wanted. I have problematic, sensitive skin and am prone to hormonal breakouts but I really hate the caked on look. Fiona really listened to me and worked with me to achieve a really flawless look that still looked really natural and dewy. She did the same for the two mum’s (who are super fussy) and my four bridesmaids. They were all thrilled and we got so many compliments throughout the day about everyone’s makeup. The makeup looked perfect both in person and in the photos and video which isn’t easy to achieve. I couldn’t recommend Fiona enough - definitely the person you want by your side in the lead up and morning of your wedding! Thanks so much Fiona!xxxxx

Fiona did mine and my bridal partys makeup for my wedding day in August 2020. She was phenomenal, she did a beautiful job i felt so beautiful all day. I would recommend Fiona wholeheartedly to anyone that is looking for a makeup artist for any ocassion. Not only is Fiona wonderful at what she does but she is also just such a lovely person, she answered little questions i had about the dress and she gave me ample compliments and made me feel so beautiful on the day. To top it off Fiona even gave us a little bag full of handy things we may need like hand cream, little tissues, mints etc. To carry with us. I am certain that I will be making use of Fionas services again and I can not recommend her enough what a delight it was to have her on the day.

She is an outstanding person, outstanding work. You want this lady by your side on your wedding day! A truly wonderful human being who I am very grateful to have met and to have done my bridal make up. She did a fantastic job for both myself and my mum. I would certainly highly recommend her to everyone and would love to get my make up done again by her if I could (without having to organise a wedding to do so!!!). Your search ends here!

Fiona did the makeup for my friend’s wedding recently and to say she did a fantastic job would be an understatement. She had a mammoth workload; bride, four bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom and sister in law - 5 hours work!She completely got the brief, we wanted to look like the best version of ourselves, not ‘made-up’ looking and she nailed it, everyone’s skin was glowing and fabulous.Throughout the morning Fiona kept things moving and at no time did we feel under time pressure, in fact we were all ready with time to spare.I didn’t have to touch up my makeup at all throughout the day which was amazing, particularly given it hit 25 degrees and I have slightly oily skin!!I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Fiona to other bridal parties and I will definitely be booking in for a private session to learn some of her tricks myself.Thanks Fiona, you’re an absolute pro Xx

Fiona did my bridal make up and I was over the moon with everything she did. I felt beautiful and it was just perfect, really natural but also giving the 'wow' factor! Fiona is a lovely person with a warm heart and loves a laugh, so she made our morning extra special. All the girls and Mums loved her and loved their make up. You are in amazing hands if you book Fiona!

I thoroughly enjoyed Fiona’s masterclass. When I arrived there was a lovely friendly atmosphere in the group and Fiona had a wonderful set up. She went through all the different products and explained really useful information about skin that I hadn’t know. We had the chance to ask questions and take notes while enjoying champagne. The make up demonstration was fascinating as Fiona explained each step and to see her in action as a true expert was amazing. Taking a day look to a night time glamours look was really interesting and the end result was fresh and beautiful. We got fabulous gift bags at the end and a voucher to spend in store. I purchased a toner with it and it was truly an enjoyable evening. I would recommend it for an evening out with the girls or mother and daughter or even on your own. Money well spent ! Thank you !

Fiona did my wedding make-up and I can honestly say she was one of the highlights (pardon the pun) of the day! She did make-up for me, my mum and my two bridesmaids. She was such a calming presence during the preparation. She made each and every person feel relaxed and had amazing little touches like a spritz of relaxing lavender face spray to put everyone at ease. She tailored the make-up to each person's preference and the results were simply beautiful. I loved my make-up!Fiona is an expert but also one of the loveliest and kindest people I have ever met! She accommodated my very very last minute request for make-up and I can't thank her enough.I have recommended her to multiple friends and will continue to do so. She's an amazing artist!

We chose a really intimate micro wedding so I wanted to do my own bridal makeup. I am incredibly fussy when it comes to my make-up but I wasn’t confident I could achieve that ‘camera ready’ look that would last me through the day without constant touch ups plus I wanted a more sophisticated version of my everyday make-up.I booked Fiona for a bespoke bridal make-up lesson and it was a special experience from start to finish. I got lots of great skincare advice, a list of bits I needed to add to my make-up bag for the day (I never even knew eye primer existed!) and finally learned how to use brushes correctly. Fiona guided me patiently step by step and together we brought the vision of my perfect wedding make-up to life, I was thrilled.After our lesson she sent me my own step by step guide which came in really handy on the morning, especially as the butterflies kicked in. On the wedding day I really felt fabulous, polished and confident and was delighted that my make-up lasted beautifully all through the day and night, I literally just topped up my lipstick.An added bonus is I have a new found confidence with my make-up and skincare, I picked up so many tips and tricks so honestly I would recommend a make-up lesson with Fiona to every woman!

Fiona was my makeup artist for my wedding in Kilkea Castle and to say she is the best is really an understatement! From the minute we first spoke on the phone prior to my trial, Fiona was so warm, open and approachable and really put my mind to rest that I would look and feel like myself on my wedding day... the best possible version of myself!On the wedding day itself, I was very nervous and Fiona was so kind and reassuring whilst also being an incredible makeup artist. My Mom, my aunt and my best friend all loved their makeup looks on the day. I absolutely LOVED my makeup and still can’t believe how beautiful and elegant I looked and felt. Thank you so much Fiona. To any brides looking for a makeup artist for your wedding day... look no further!!

Fionna is the absolute best!! I was a destination bride and from the beginning planning stages, Fionna was a dream. To finally meet her in person after months and months was such a pleasure. We did a trial 3 days before the wedding and it was such fun! I couldn't wait to have her with me the morning of my wedding. She has such a warm and welcoming presence and immediately put me at ease. Not only is she amazing, but her work is even more incredible! I've never had a make up artist really listen to me and the direction I wanted to go. She was so flexible and wanted to make sure I was 100% happy. I truly have never felt so beautiful and its all because of her! On top of all that, she managed to keep my oily skin under control for the ENTIRE day - I didn't think it was possible but WOW did she deliver!! Everyone in my bridal party was stunning and just couldn't have asked for anything more. Needless to say I had the most magical day and would highly recommend to any bride!!

I booked Fiona after a friend recommended her, and I'm so so glad I did! From the first time I spoke to her I felt like I was in good hands, particularly because of her focus on natural looks. Fiona gave me loads of great advice at my trial and in the run up to the wedding on skin care too, and then on the day she was such an amazing calming influence. The morning was, naturally, pretty hectic and Fiona was so together and calm that it really put me at ease. She even had a lavender scented spray to make the room smell like a spa! Of course, my make up and my maid of honours make up were incredible. It lasted through a very long day and night eating drinking and dancing and I have photo proof that it was still in excellent shape by 4am! I felt like I was wearing nothing, and kept forgetting I even had make up on (until of course I looked in the mirror and realised I had never looked better!). I'm only sad that I cant look that amazing every day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fiona, and I will be recommending her to all of my engaged friends! An amazing, talented make up artist but just as importantly a lovely person who will make you feel amazing on the day and go above and beyond to help your morning and day run smoothly. Thanks so much Fiona ❤️

Fiona did make up for myself and my bridal group back in October. She is amazing! Such a relaxing, fun presence on the morning. Exactly the type of person you want on the big day. She had a great playlist to keep us entertained, and every now an again would spritz some lavender to relax us!She is an exceptional talent, tailoring everyone's look to their own personality and personal make up style. I truly have never felt more beautiful, and I didn't need to touch up my face once, which is usually unheard of for my oily skin!I would have no hesitation in recommending Fiona, you will not be disappointed!
