Make-up Testimonials & Thanks

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on Sunday (my husband was blown away). The time all the girls spent in the dressing room was great fun.  I also want to thank you for changing the subject and making me laugh when I was so close to losing it after reading the sms about my dad not being there.   It was really appreciated cause if you had not been there at that moment I think I would have just started sobbing and it would have been really difficult for me to try and compose myself enough to go to the ceremony. Thanks for saving the day and I will definitely be recommending you to all the other people I know that will be getting married. CANDICE DAVISSON - OAKFIELD FARM - 06/04/2008 

I think the way you run your business Cathy is great. I think you conduct great business etiquette and that you will get a lot more business running the way you currently doCINDY Dec 2010

Make-up trial feedback...

I went for my make up trial this morning and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HAPPY!!! YAY!!!
After a disastrous trial with another make up artist I was a bit apprehensive and thought of doing my own make up but Cathy is absolutely great. She is extremely professional and actually takes the time to listen to what you want.
My make up is natural and I don't feel like I am wearing a mask. I strongly recommend her should you be looking for someone to do your make up.
Rather chose the best person for the job and don't waste your money by going to just any make up artist.


I don't think I am able to explain the calibre of Cathy Heaton's abilities as a make-up artist. She is EXCELLENT!!!! She is extremely professional and I was amazed at how beautiful she made all the ladies look. My MIL who was so adamant that she would never let anyone do her make-up quickly changed her mind when she saw how Cathy had done everyone else's make up. Michelle from Hair Innovations did a fantastic job with everyone's hair. I highly recommend Cathy and Michelle for hair and make up as they work very well together and have a great system going, with who goes next and timing etc. Lucy Monastursky 29/03/07 Sandton

Just to say a very big thank you for making us all look and feel so lovely on my wedding day. Thank you too for putting me at ease about the fever blister and covering it up so well!! The getting ready process was so relaxing and that is due to your professionalism. We were all very happy with our looks (Justin, the two dads, my brother in law and Linda’s husband loved them too!) It was lovely to get to know you as well. Lesley (wedding 26 September)

Cathy, was an absolute pleasure to work with, she is so kind and bubbly and friendly and did everything in her power to make my day just perfect. She is so professional in her dealings with everyone and made all the girls feel so relaxed and beautiful for the special day. It was an honour to have Cathy do my make up, I would recommend her to everyone. She is great! SABIA Anonymous vote for the Star of the Day

Cathy Heaton is our Star of the day.  She made me look like I felt on the inside, intensly happy.  I felt so beautiful and adored.  The make-up was not over done but natural, just the way I wanted.  All the other ladies in the bridal party expreced their satisfaction with Cathy not only as a Make-up artist but also as a person.   I for one adore her as a person, a true gem!

I’m back from honeymoon and the first thing I wanted to do is thank you for the amazing job you did at my wedding! The make-up lasted the whole wedding and everyone said that I looked so good, I should wear make-up more often! I was so happy that despite the heat and nerves, my face never looked shiny.  Thank you again for doing such an amazing job! Kind regards, Anna-Mart Fourie 07/01/07 Westcliff

Cathy, you are such a sweetheart! Not only did you make me look beautiful, but you made me feel that way too! Your calm, sweet nature really relaxed me so much that morning, as well as my mom, and I was so happy with the way my make-up turned out. The photos look incredible because of your work, so thank you! Nicole Capper 19/11/06 Oakfield Farm

I just wanted to extend my deepest appreciation to you for the wonderful job you did with my make-up on my wedding day!   I was worried that my eyes were too smoky, but I received so many compliments about my make-up (including from Richard of course!!) and looking at the photos now, I can see from a more objective eye, how “spot on” you were.  Thank you so, so much! All the girls were also very appreciative, especially my mom, who mentioned a few times how lovely she felt she looked. Keep well and once again, many thanks. Pamela Hull 16/11/06 Moon and Sixpence

I wanted to say thank you AGAIN so much for everything you did for me on my wedding day – we have just received the photos from Michelle, and they are absolutely incredible.  It is not very often that I can look at a photo of me and think that it looks good - but Michelle’s photos are absolutely breathtaking, and even I can say that I looked beautiful.  Your make-up withstood 3 separate crying episodes – I cried as I walked down the aisle, I cried again just after the ceremony and then later during the speeches – and the only thing that had to be touched up was my lipstick! You were wonderful! Thank you, I have the photos that I wanted, I had the day we had dreamed about.  Thank you for playing such an important part in the day - Sue

My husband (huh, huh) loved the way you made me look, like me, and yet ten times prettier. He was absolutely thrilled, he couldn’t stop smiling, he really didn’t expect that. He said it was perfect, and coming from him that is a huge compliment. Well how I felt goes without saying, you are amazing. Everybody else at the wedding also thought you did a stunning job with me, and trust me they didn’t just say it, they actually meant it, every single one of them even my sister-in-law who was so worried I would look too made up, they all were very pleasantly surprised. Even my sister said she would use you anytime. I have sent you a photo to show you my final product, and once again compliment your talent. I couldn't have made a better choice. I can safely say you left your mark, well done. Well I’ll know where to go if ever I have a big occasion again. And I will definitely refer you. Laurencia Cockrell 09/09/06 Muldersdrift

Just want to say so much for being part of our day. The ladies and I looked beautiful and think you may have even converted my aunt, lol :) Fatima Soares 02/03/13 Glenburn Lodge

I absolutely loved the makeup you did for me, truly made me feel like a princess and I thank you for providing such a special touch to my special day. My bridesmaids raved about their makeup too! Phillippa Crosley 23/02/13 Oakfield Farm
