BMW '5 series' car launch. Make-up by 4 artists for 27 people…

Hi Zoë
I just wanted to thank you for the stupendous job that you and your girls did on Thursday night. The make-up was fabulous - exactly how I had imagined it in my minds eye. Not only that, but you were unflappable and produced those lovely results in less than ideal circumstances. Thank you so much. Please pass on my thanks to your team.
It was lovely to meet you and I hope our paths cross again. With very best wishes and thanks,


Exhibition at NEC Birmingham. Make-up by 2 artists for 6 performers, 9 shows…

Thank you so much for both yourself & Sarah's hard work at the NEC you really did a fab job & both the client & I were very happy. I look forward to working with you again in the near future. Kindest regards



Zoe has worked as a supplier for me since 2003. She has worked as a face and body artist and has provided human statues, other face artists and some floral art.
Zoe has worked with me on numerous occasions at a variety of events of different sizes and profile. I have always found her to be trustworthy, reliable and professional. The quality of her service is always great and she has never let me down.
She communicates well on the telephone and provides written creative proposals with imagination and clarity. She and her team always interact easily with everyone whether it is children, parents, performers or high profile clients. She is also flexible and can work under difficult circumstances when necessary.
