Lyn is a wonderful & very creative lady. From the first point of communication I knew I was in the best hands for my wedding hair and makeup. I found Lyn online and straight away I was impressed by her web page, portfolio and testimonials.
On meeting Lyn for my trial she was so warm and friendly, explained everything clearly and ensured that I was completely happy with my look. Lyn listened to everything I told her and achieved amazing results by applying her knowledge and skill set to my needs. She was also on hand to provide help and information throughout the time from my initial trial up until my wedding day.
On my wedding day Lyn arrived promptly with all her equipment and it was honestly like my friend had paid me a visit. She was so very relaxed and even won round my painfully shy little girl who normally doesn’t go near strangers, let alone sit and have her hair done. We had a wonderful morning with Lyn, so much so I was sad to see her go. She put us all at ease and just has a wonderfully calming way about her. I could not imagine there being anyone better than Lyn for my big day. I would also like to add that as well as my makeup being absolutely stunning she did a magnificent job of my hair not to mention my bridesmaid and flower girls! We hired lyn to come back in the evening to do our makeup touch ups before the evening guests arrived and gave a few of our daytime guests a little treat, they were also so impressed with Lyn and thought she was such a lovely person.
This girl is simply amazing! And I am going to make a conscious effort to go on more nights out just to have my hair and makeup done by her! She is an asset to the hair and makeup industry with her wealth of knowledge and skills. Her dedication and commitment to her work deserves recognition.
Where do I start? Lyn is an angel sent from wedding make up heaven!
She is amazing!! I had a few issues on my wedding morning by being stupid and having a sunbed the day before my wedding to get rid of a spot on my face….and since I wasn’t used to sunbeds my face was like a lobster after only 5 minutes. I was having a complete melt down the evening before my wedding as my face was getting redder & redder as the hours passed. I text Lyn in a total panic asking if she had any tips that would take the redness down as I was seriously contemplating cancelling my wedding (over dramatic as usual). Lyn came right back to me with tips on what to do and assured me she had everything I needed to cover the redness.
Not only did Lyn show up early with loads of supply’s to cover my sunbed stupidity but she still showed up even though the poor lamb had food poisoning. Lyn was fantastic on my wedding day, while she must have been absolutely dying she was still cheery, joined in our fun, done my make up (red face free I might add), mother of the bride and 4 bridesmaids who all looked fantastic.
I would highly recommend Lyn to anyone as she is 100% reliable, her make up skills are second to none and for the price she is asking for, for her to provide you with a stress free morning and for making every member of the wedding party looking like an absolute princess – Lyn is an absolute steal!
Can’t wait for my next event for Lyn to do my make up again!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her!!
What can I say! After booking and cancelling a couple of make up artists before my wedding day I just knew when I met Lyn that she was the right one! Nothing was a problem and she has stayed in touch giving me tips on where to order things and her latest favs! At each trial we had so much fun and she did a fantastic job! It just got better and better and on my big day she pulled a blinder, creating a smokey eye look and fantastic lip colour that toned in perfectly. My hair was exactly what I was looking for too….simple and classic.
She’s a fantastic artist with the best make up collection I’ve ever seen (kept in pristine condition) – she literally has everything!!!! She really knows her stuff and it’s completely effortless for her. And to boot…she’s a great laugh and so easy to chat to…was like having a friend in tow!
Thank you so much Lyn! Would absolutely recommend her for any occasion!! xx
I hired Lyn for my wedding in Edinburgh this July. Lyn did the make up for me, my 3 bridesmaids, the mother of the bride, the mother of the groom, a junior bridesmaid and my cousin! Despite the long list of people she made the morning a stress free and fun experience.
Lyn was very responsive to what we wanted for the day and made sure everybody was happy with their make-up. From first contact Lyn was professional and friendly and always very responsive. She was flexible with timings and particularly helpful when trying to plan a time for the make-up trial.
We also hired Lyn to come back to the wedding in the evening to touch up make-up for the bridal party and a few guests. This is a great service and one I would recommend to everyone.
Lyn was absolutely fantastic as the makeup artist and hair stylist for my wedding. She is funny, friendly and professional and her communication was very prompt and helpful making her very easy to deal with. I have always been a bit clueless when it comes to makeup and hair but she took my ums and has and came up with a look and style that were perfect for me – like myself but on my best day ever! She also made up my Mum and two of my bridesmaids who were similarly impressed and looked absolutely gorgeous. 5 stars!
Lyn did the make up for myself and my two bridesmaids and Mum for my wedding in June. We had a trial a few months beforehand where we discussed ideas for make up and she had a few suggestions. I had in kindly roughly what I wanted for myself and she was able to tweak it so that it suited my skin and colourings.
On the day, she was absolutely fantastic and made everyone feel very at ease. One of my bridesmaids is very in to make up and used to work at Clarins and she was delighted with her make up, which says it all!
On the day, everyones make up looked perfect and Lyn was able to tailor a similar look to suit everyone.
Couldn’t recommend Lyn highly enough. Thanks Lyn!!
Just sending a little email to say thank you very much for doing hair and makeup for our wedding at Dalhousie Castle on 12th June 2015. We had a lovely day and the girls and I received lots of compliments on how lovely and radiant we looked. Still looking good at the end of the evening too! I really appreciated your calm and unflappable manner, even when you cut your finger on the hair pin!
Thanks once again and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.
Best wishes, Christine xx
Lyn did the wedding make-up on the morning of my wedding for me, my four bridesmaids and mum. We all loved our make-up and would definitely recommend using the air-base. She was a pleasure to deal with and incredibly professional. She was an amazing calming influence on the morning of my wedding. Everyone commented on how great the make-up looked and I would not hesitate to recommend her in the future.
Thanks Lyn! x
Prior to my wedding we had a trial with Lyn which was brilliant in helping decide on colours and styles.
On our wedding day, both my mum and I got our hair and makeup done by Lyn. She was professional and friendly, making the morning so easy and relaxed.
We were both thrilled with the results which were better than I even expected and lasted the entire day in very hot weather.
I would recommend Lyn to every bride. If you want a makeup artist who really knows how to interpret your vision and execute it perfectly, then Lyn is the one for you.
Lyn did the makeup at my wedding in May and she was fantastic. Not only was she great at makeup she was also a really nice person, so it made having your makeup done an even nicer and more relaxing experience on your big day! She did my make up and my five bridesmaids and they all looked stunning. Her smokey eyes are to die for!!! She also did my little flower girls hair in a braid which wrapped round the back of her head which looked gorgeous and she absolutely loved it!
Thank you so much Lyn – I will be recommending you to my friends.
Lyn was recommended to me by a friend and I was so pleased someone told me about her as she was fantastic!
Lyn did both mine, my Mum and bridesmaids make up as well as my little girls lippy! She gave us all a steer on colours at the trial and came prepared with military precision on the day!
Lyn also did both mine and the bridesmaids hair and I actually ended up with two trials as decided after the first trial I wanted a more vintage look. I literally showed Lyn what I was thinking and she put it together.
I nearly forgot she also did my nails the night before!
I thought Lyn’s services were amazing and on top of great service she is also a lovely person and a pleasure to know.
I would definitely recommend using Lyn’s services if anyone was to ask.
Lyn is excellent! Professional but also funny and puts you at ease. Our make up and hair lasted all day and until 2am! Can’t recommend her highly enough.
Lyn is a lovely friendly talented and professional artist-very deserving of her wedding award last year!
She came to Dalhousie Castle and made up myself my daughter and my niece-We all looked beautiful thanks to her creative talent, vision for what suits your skintones and wedding colours/themes providing a lovely professional and comfortable look which got many positive comments on the day!
Lyn is a lovely person -we had fun and felt very relaxed -she is also extremely good at giving you advice and tips for how to apply your own makeup and good products and colours to use to enhance your appearance-My daughter and I had the LVLlashes which Lyn applied for us-absolutely love them and going back to see her for more soon!-The airbrush makeup was fantastic too-she has a wide product knowledge and range of lovely good quality products which last and look good too.
Lyn loves what she does and makes every effort in every way to make you both look and feel your best which is what its all about!
I would highly recommend Lyn as a makeup artist for any occasion.
Lyn’s services were second to none! She was professional, friendly and used the best quality make up that suited each of us. I had myself and 3 bridesmaids for hair and makeup on the big day and she made sure she was at the venue in plenty of time to get us all looking amazing! She is very approachable, professional and there is a reason she is so busy! I wouldn’t have had such a good day if I didn’t have complete confidence in my hair and make up artist! I felt like I was spending time with another friend on my big day as she made us feel so comfortable and we had every faith in her! Amazing; top class!
Thank you so much Lyn xx
Lyn was absolutely brilliant on my wedding day. There were 4 adults for hair and make up and a flower girl who had requested Frozen hair which was no problem at all for Lyn. She was so professional, friendly and easy to have a natter with. The make up she used stayed in place all day and I would definately recommend the airbrush, it’s amazing!
Just had the best afternoon EVER with Lyn for a make up and hair lesson. Lots of easy ideas to follow for day and night looks. Would definitely recommend Lyn, she is just so relaxed and easy to get on with. Thanks so much!
I want to say a huge thank you to the very best make up artist I have had in a long time. This very talented lady helped make me look beautiful, classy and elegant at a photoshoot I had to release my album cover. Lyn understood my visions for each different look and in doing so, made me feel relaxed to let her work her magic. Even when I insisted I didn’t suit any red lip…she reassured me she could find the right shade for me…AND DID! Now I don’t fear the “red lip” anymore! Thank you so much again, I’m looking forward to working with you in the future!
If someone asked me describe Lyn in 3 words I would say – Professional, helpful & friendly! Everything you want from someone on your wedding day!
We had a 2 day wedding & we were so happy with our hair & make up on both days.
The trial was great fun & gave us a chance to discuss the look we wanted to achieve – Lyn was great at listening to our ideas & giving us some direction of what works well.
Lyn was effortless to work with – always replying within literally hours! I have recommended Lyn to friends & can’t thank her enough!
I had air brush make up applied by Lyn for my wedding and also had it used on my tattoo. I was very impressed by the results both on my face and the coverage on the tattoo. I had been unsure if this would conceal it but Lyn re-assured me and the results were amazing.
Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for making me and my mum look so beautiful on both days (especially for the early start on the Tuesday). We both loved our make-up as it was so flawless and natural. It lasted all day and night and we didn’t have to touch up once. I am so glad to have you as part of my special day(s) as we would not have received so many compliments without your help. I cannot recommend you highly enough, not only for your outstanding work but also for being such a pleasure to meet.
A massive thank you to you and Cherlene! Not only did we all look sensational by the time you had finished with us, we had loads of fun with you girls in the morning as well. Could not recommend you highly enough – you were both brilliant!
All of our wedding guests commented on how stunning our hair and make up was and we did honestly feel beautiful!
Thanks also for putting up with us, we are a bunch of slightly high maintenance girls!!
I hired Lyn for our wedding in the Highlands at the end of the year. I did everything last minute so was in her house the day before having my makeup trial! She was so accommodating and drove from Edinburgh to Glencoe on the morning of the wedding. She did my Mum, bridesmaid, mother in law and me on the day. The makeup that she chose for all for all of us looked absolutely beautiful – my mum and me are quite difficult for makeup as we have dark skin, however everybody looked stunning. She is an absolute professional, however we had a good laugh throughout too!
I was so happy with the results and I am so glad that she could fit me in as I don’t think I would have felt as comfortable, or looked as amazing as I did on the day. Massive thank you!
Lyn did my and my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding last weekend and I would highly recommend her to other brides. She was very friendly, professional and really listened to what I wanted. She had alot to contend with as I was very indecisive! I had a great trial with her where we tried different looks until I decided what I wanted. On the day I felt really confident with her doing my makeup and it was exactly what I wanted! Everyone commented on how natural it looked. Thanks Lyn!
I would recommend Lyn without any hesitation. It goes without saying that she has a real talent and her knowledge of what would look great and work well for the photographs cannot be underestimated. Lyn truly is an expert in her field and I can’t thank her enough for helping me, my bridesmaid and the mums looks our best on my special day.
Lyn also has such a professional approach with her communication which is invaluable when you are planning a wedding and is quite rare in the wedding business. You won’t find better – outstanding hair and make up, excellent communication, great flexibility, calming influence and genuinely lovely person.
I used Lyn for my June wedding in Edinburgh this year and couldn’t recommend her more highly. My bridesmaids and mum all loved their hairstyles and were very impressed with their makeup as well. I got compliments all day long on both hair and makeup – one fried pulled me aside to specifically mention how impressed she was with my makeup.
Lyn made the whole process very easy. She is really organised, so the sorting out of the logistics was so easy. She was very quick to respond to my emails, which meant a lot to me in the hectic planning process. My trial with her was great – she made sure I was completely happy with the look, which involved trying out quite a few different things until I was satisfied. And she’s such an easy person to chat to that she kept me calm on the morning of the wedding.
My friends & I travelled from Toronto to Edinburgh for our friends wedding, after finding Lyn online, she came to our hotel and did the most amazing job on our hair & makeup, none of us had ever met her before, we just sent her pics of what we were looking for, she was amazing, super friendly & professional she offered us great tips on what we should do hair & makeup wise & even suggested a wonderful restaurant for us to check out while we were there, she was absolutely amazing & we all looked like movie stars by the time she was done with us! I would strongly recommend using her services, she really knows what she us doing! It was a wonderful experience!
