Candice is an amazing makeup artist, she is friendly, and yet professional at the same time. Her work is of excellent quality, flawless makeup, and when she did our makeup (indian skintone) she just got it right! Absolutely perfect and made all of us feel glowing and beautiful on my sister’s wedding day. She was so easy and lovely to deal with. We would highly recommend Candice, in fact she also did my wedding day makeup 5 years ago too very pleased and will continue to give our business to Candice.

I have used Candice personally multiple times and because of how professional and skilled Candice is, I frequently refer my clients to her. Candice knows what suits you best but also listens to you and how makeup or a certain hairstyle will make you feel, not just look. She is so down to earth and makes you so at ease when you’re having -more often than not- the most stressful day of your life and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Candice was great, she did a hair and makeup trial for my bridesmaid and I and on the big day provided hair and makeup for my 3 nieces as well. Her work is impeccable! I do not wear makeup and wanted a more natural look and she achieved that and more. She listens to what you want and was very accomomadating with my timings and coming directly to where I was. Thank you so much to you Candice and your assistant (I apologise her name has slipped my mind). I highly highly recommend Candice and her team for your big day!

I would highly recommend using Candice. She came out to my sisters wedding at Bracu in Bombay. Candice is very friendly and professional. My sister looked stunning her hair and make up was done to perfection. She also did the bridesmaids and our mum’s make up. I had never had my make up done professionally before it was such a treat. My sisters wedding was such a special day and it was nice to have Candice apart of getting us all ready. (Not to mention the baby advice too)

Candice was amazing. Professional, talented, listened to my makeup brief for what i was wanting.
Friendly, skilled. She was an exceptional make up artist and I’ve commissioned many over the years to do my makeup and Candice was by far the best. Her care with her kit, her personal presentation and of course the end result all exceeded my expectations.
I would highly recommend her work and would certainly book her again for any other special occasions.
Love your work Candice, keep it up. You make everyone feel amazing, look amazing and you take makeup to a whole new level of care and attention to detail. Thank you.

After hearing all the positive feedback I finally had the chance to book Candice for hair & makeup for my sister in laws engagement.
I can not reccomend her enough, I was absouloutely blown away by her work and had several compliments throughout the night.
Candice was professional yet made you feel very comfortable!She involves you in every step of the way and ensures you are 100% happy.
Already looking forward to my bext special occasion so I can book her in!!
Trust me ladies you will not be disappointed.

Candice is simply amazing. Im not the type who wears makeup regularly so I didn’t really want a full on make up look. I wanted a very natural look and Candice made that happen for me. I was very happy with how i looked. Everyone commented on the make up and it lasted until after the dinner reception. The make up also looked amazing in the photos!
Also, Candice is very nice, bubbly and funny which made the experience even more memorable.

Candice is professional, yet puts you at ease with her warm and friendly manner.
She ensures throughout the entire application that you are completely satisfied with the look she creates.
I was most impressed with her talent, skill and ability to create an individualised look that suited my colouring and features. My makeup lasted all day and into the wee hours of the next morning, and the touch up lipkit she gave me to take was a fantastic addition.
When she revealed how she styled my hair I was blown away by her artistry and skill. It was incredible and a hair didn’t move out of place all night, despite my enthusiastic dancing! Yet it didn’t feel crisp or caked in hairspray. I was sorry to dismantle her masterpiece at the end of the night.
I saw Candice for my hair and makeup for a university ball, however I know exactly who I will be using to do both my hair and makeup for my wedding.
Thank-you so very much Candice, worth every penny.

I cannot recommend Candice enough!!! She was mine and my mother’s hair and makeup artist for my brothers wedding on 19th December 2015. I had already booked someone else but 3 weeks before the big day I was notified the booking is cancelled…“things happen for a reason” I am so glad it did because i found Candice. She is amazing, professional,friendly,timely,up front, easy to work with and is quick to respond to emails. She did a fantastic job with our hair and makeup. Our makeup and hair remained flawless from 10am right up to 3am 20th December. Candice is trustworthy and had a real eye for what looks good on people. As for our mum…Thank you Candice for making her look totally fabulous, age appropriate and comfortable.

I loved Candice’s work and calmess
She totally understands what her clients wants
She did an awesome job with my makeup and hair ... I was overwhelmed with the compliments
Wedding Date: November 29, 2015
Candice did our hair and makeup for my sisters wedding. She arrived at my house promptly and with enough time to ensure we were all done with enough time to spare and we were not rushed.
My makeup was flawless. I was a bit uneven due to a holiday in the sun a few weeks before and she really evened me out.
My hair was great - the weather was terrible but it didn’t move, come loose or go frizzy which my curly hair always does when it’s humid.
My makeup looked great all night, photographed really well, and still looked good after a few hours on the dancefloor at the end of the night.
Candice is so easy to talk to and ensures you always get what you’re after.
I highly recommend her and will be using her for future events.
