Being a sporty type I often live in gym gear, so when faced with an annual rowing ball I was completely lost with what to wear or where to go to find something suitable. I also have a very athletic physique, with a broad back and shoulders so this was not going to be an easy task. A friend had highly recommended Camilla to me so I booked a personal styling session with her. Camilla was extremely friendly and knew exactly where to go to source amazing evening dresses for me. She instinctively knew what would flatter by body shape and picked out styles which I would never have picked out by myself. Within no time at all I had a head to toe outfit, which I felt really confident and comfortable in, as well as feeling feminine and attractive.

Camilla, thanks so much for doing my make-up up on my wedding day. Despite the fact that I'd only managed 3 hours sleep the night before due to pre-wedding excitement/nerves, you made me look and feel amazing. I was very impressed too by how we only needed one trial beforehand. You seem to have a knack of knowing exactly what suits a person and bringing out the best in their features. Everybody commented on how I looked so I can only thank you greatly, and if you ever need a practice model for anything in the future I will gladly oblige!

Make Me Fabulous UK had been recommended to me by a friend and co-worker. I was getting in a bit of a panic as I had two days to sort an outfit for a social ball I was due to be going to. At this point I still had nothing to wear and as someone with no idea about following fashion trends, I was completely unsure of what was current or in style, let alone what suited my body shape and frame. I had heard that Camilla was a natural at styling party looks, so I called in the hope that I could get a last minute slot. Thankfully Camilla agreed to move something around to accompany me for a personal shopping session at Westfield in West London. Having conducted a thorough consultation with me by phone, Camilla had already put together three complete outfit options by the time I met her. As well as selecting dresses which were perfect for my body, her natural eye and attention for detail meant she had also picked out the most wonderful complimentary accessories. On the night I felt amazing and still cannot help but smile when I think about all the compliments I received.

Make me Fabulous UK did my make-up when I was a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding earlier this year. I was really impressed so decided to book Camilla for my wedding. Camilla's approach to make-up is very natural looking, which is perfect for me. I hardly slept a wink the night before the big day and Camilla managed to hide the bags under my eyes. All of the bridesmaids said how lovely it was to have their make-up done and Camilla had picked colours to suit all of us, including the Mum's. Camilla and her team were very professional and friendly and I will definitely recommend Make me Fabulous UK to any friends getting married in the near future.

Reassuringly Camilla understood my desire to have natural looking make up on my wedding day so the trial was a great opportunity to talk through my ideas. Camilla then offered suggestions based on our discussion, which really suited the style I wanted to achieve. I don’t often wear make-up so we talked through the range make-up available, trialing several products until we found the perfect look which was fresh and natural. Surprisingly despite my tears of joy, the make-up lasted all day and I felt really beautiful, like a princess. The make-up was comfortable and light and I was so happy with how it looked in the pictures— as my skin looked flawless. Camilla was not only my make-up artist but she became my friend on the day as we talked about the wedding and subsequent honeymoon plans. Camilla extremely professional and friendly and I will definitely be recommending her to all my friends and family. I can guarantee they won’t be disappointed. Thank you again Camilla.

Camilla was recommended to me by a friend and she didn't disappoint. Friendly and down-to-earth, she made the whole process – one I wasn't that comfortable with initially – so easy and enjoyable. During my trial, Camilla and I talked through the look I wanted, and she was keen to try out different colours and techniques until I was completely happy. On the day itself, she re-created exactly what we'd decided on at the trial. She did a fantastic job, and was unfazed by my mum, aunty and two bridesmaids forming an audience! The results were perfect and apart from a slick of lippy, I didn't have to touch up my face all day. I don't usually wear much make-up and loved how the base looked and felt natural while still looking flawless. I also had quite intricate eye make-up and Camilla's perfectionism really paid off, with lots of 'Your eyes look amazing!' comments from the guests. Camilla helped make me feel confident and gorgeous on the day and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to other brides to be!

My make-up looked flawless and without looking or feeling too done up, my skin was glowing. Best of all, my make-up stayed put all day, through tears, laughter and lots of dancing! Camilla was so confident and professional on the day that it made me feel really calm and at ease. She really did an amazing job and I will certainly be recommending her to all my family and friends. Thank you SO much for making me feel so special on my big day!

I can 100% recommend Camilla as a make-up artist. Camilla did the make up for my wedding which was absolutely fantastic, my bridesmaids looked STUNNING and were thrilled with the way they looked. Camilla really followed my brief and the photos for our wedding are great plus the make-up lasted all day and night!!!! I have had loads of enquiries since the wedding about who did the make-up which I think is a massive testament for Camilla's work.

Camilla contributed to making my wedding day so special. My make-up was superb and amazingly, lasted all day right through until the early hours of the morning! From the beginning of the process and at the trial stage, she put my mind at ease and guided me in choosing the right colours to match my flowers and colour scheme – and wasn’t happy until I was completely satisfied. On the actual day itself, she took her time and the utmost care to make sure my face was made up beautifully. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Camilla and have already done so to many other satisfied brides! (Featured in Hello Magazine)

As a mother of three young children, I rarely have the time, energy or urge to shop for myself. So having spent the post baby years slouching around in jeans and t-shirts, I had lost all confidence in my dress sense. Any talk of fashion or shopping sent me into a spin but I was feeling frumpy and needed a boost in confidence and self-esteem. Make Me Fabulous UK was recommended by a friend and I nervously arranged for my closet to be cleansed by Camilla. All nerves quickly left, as did five bin bags of outdated or ill-fitting clothes! A follow up shopping day was arranged with an organised hit list of ‘must haves’ and a budget sketched out. Camilla had scouted around the day before making sure our time and my money were both well spent. Camilla achieved the impossible and made it all so much fun. She has shopping in her DNA and a natural eye for fashion. I left with a new capsule wardrobe consisting of a mixture of social and work clothes. I now feel fabulous and will be planning another shopping spree with Camilla again soon.

As a busy, full time working mother of two young children, I have little, if any time, to pamper myself or even think about my appearance beyond some basic foundation and mascara. Which is why for my wedding day I wanted to go all out and look like a supermodel. Camilla’s company, Make Me Fabulous UK, had been recommended to me by a co-worker and from the first telephone call I felt completely confident I’d made the right choice. During an initial trial session we agreed upon the look, Camilla then created the perfect bridal make up to complement my dress and also suggested some fabulous accessories. She saved me hours of time and research and came up with recommendations which were completely in line with my brief and budget. On the day she travelled to Hampshire where she performed a complete transformation. Camilla is friendly, calm and professional and she left me looking and feeling amazing.

It was an emergency. With only 36 hours to go before a big black tie event I tried on the dress I planned to wear and it didn’t fit!! In desperation I rang Camilla and she agreed to scout out outfits and accessories for me that same day. By the time I met her at Westfield after work she had come up with a short list of 3 outfits. Disaster was averted and I came home a few hours later with a stylish new outfit, complete with shoes, bag and jewellery. I was really pleased that Camilla encouraged me to go for shoes and accessories that were up to date and much more on trend than I would’ve have had the confidence to choose on my own. She knows what is fashionable and what suits different body shapes so was a great help to this unconfident shopper! I’d love her help with my work wardrobe next.

After my wardrobe cleanse I felt liberated and now after my shopping day I feel ready to accept every invitation with confidence. The best part is I have since been shopping on my own and feel 100% confident I now know what works for me! Camilla has saved me tantrums, tears and hundreds of pounds already. I cannot recommend Make Me Fabulous UK enough to any woman who finds shopping a painful and wasteful experience!
