What Our Clients Say

From a male client....
" Dear Joanne, 
Just a quick note to thank you for the expert treatment at your clinic yesterday. The result is just fantastic, better even than I could have hoped for. See you again when I need the "top-up"! Thanks again!"

"Dear Amy,
I just want to express my sincere thanks for doing such fabulous, professional make-up artistry on my wedding day. I appreciate you travelling distances
too! You went above and beyond in so many ways, from purchasing the make-up, doing the trial, and simply taking the time to listen and make me feel
beautiful as a bride. My husband still raves about how you made me look radiant!"

“I love that Amy explains what ingredient in a product benefits my individual needs.”

“Want to let you know that I am so happy with the results of my treatment.  Subtle enough that I know but no one else needs to!"

“Thank you, thank you, thank you!! What a wonderful time it was tonight. A nice small group and this old dog learned some new good tricks!!! This makeup is wonderful, but to have someone help you with how to apply and to get 'dangerous' and sample different products was tons of fun.. To see what colors really work for your skin tone makes all the difference, and we got to see first hand the mistakes we had made the past! When they have this again, everyone who wants to look good should go, Amy was great, and I will go back again!!!!! What a great way to spend a night, it flew by! Also the Spa is just beautiful inside, you just feel so relaxed with the decor, it is just lovely!”

“Looks amazing! You really are an artist.”

“Hi Joanne, I just want to express my appreciation for the wonderful job you did on my face! Absolutely no marks, pain, redness or swelling.
