Penny Garner

I recently did a Smokey Eye masterclass at Make My Day and it was the best money I have spent in a long time. Suzeanna was lovely and friendly, very talented and very knowledgeable. The lesson moved at a good pace and although we were all there for various reasons, I think the whole class learnt a lot. We were able to ask lots of questions and I have gained more confidence and a new found love of make up. I will be going on a big make up spending spree soon and practising the techniques we learnt. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone and I will be looking out for more courses that Suzeanna will be doing.

Jane Dashwood

Suezanna is amazing at what she does as she makes you feel so welcome and relaxed. She is also a fantastic tutor during the masterclass where she will help you utilise what you already have in your make up bag, providing you witg invaluable skills and techniques!

Highly recommended xxx

Suezanna was lovely, I showed her pictures I'd collected during my trial and she worked her magic on what would suit me and my wedding theme. On the day she made me and my bridesmaids feel amazing going beyond my expectations! We had so many compliments, I would highly recommend Suezanna. She also worked wonders with my eyelashes!

Emma Sadula

I was a bridesmaid last weekend and I couldn't decide if I wanted my makeup done professionally or do it myself. Suezanna agreed to do my make up on such short notice. She was very friendly and easy to talk to. I was completely confident in what she was doing. I loved the make up that Suezanna used. My make up was applied around 10am and it was perfect all day, I didn't have to do any touch ups throughout the day. If ever I want my makeup doing professionally again I'll be sure to send Suezanna a message

Tanya Payne

I was a bride last Saturday and Suezanna agreed to be my make up artist she did a fantastic job with my make up and some of bridesmaids had their make up done with her to they also looked wonderful. She provided us with wonderful service and she is so friendly and lovely to talk to I would recommend her to anyone. All the best with your future business suezanna thank you for everything my husband was gobsmacked xxxxx

Antonia Malin-Graham

I have never met a nicer girl, she made me feel welcome and I left feeling a million dollars. The conversation was flowing and is totally open to whatever style you are into. Such a talented and lovely person. Hoping to have more events to attend so that I can come back to get styled up again. You truly did 'make my day' thank you!!!

Ellyn Inshaw

Great creative to work with, created the exact look I was looking for for a recent photoshoot!

Skyla Round

What can I say!! Suezanna is amazing. I was a bit wary of having someone do my make up as haven't been happy with some makeovers in the past, however from the moment I saw what she had done for the trial I was completely in love with the look, and there was no way I would have used anyone else. On the big day, I was unfortunately really poorly. Suzi arrived to me being really ill, and was fantastic and supportive above and beyond her duties in what turned out to be a pretty traumatic morning! However, she still made me look so good that no one could tell I was poorly, so thank you for saving the day! You're amazing xxxxxx

Ruth Clea

I had a great experience with Make My Day. Suezanna was amazing. Lovely, friendly and listens to what you want and helps make it work! I had a mini nightmare with my wedding hair and we worked through the options on the day - nothing was too much trouble! Thank you

Ellie Birch

Make up lesson by Suezanna at Make My Day fully recommend! I found Suezanna online and enquired for Make Up Manic Mandy's birthday girlie day. We all had a great experience from start to finish and learnt a lot of new techniques. Suezanna instantly made us all feel comfortable, she was easy going, professional and went the extra mile to make sure we all got everything we could from our tutorial. She kept in touch from the date of enquiry to make sure the lesson was tailored to exactly what we wanted from the experience and left with 5 very happy customers! Would definitely book with Suezanna again! Xx

Stephanie Mowat

As soon as I walked through the door in her stunning makeup studio, Suezanna instantly made me feel at home! She is such a wonderful, genuine & gorgeous lady that is incredible at her job! She made me and my bridesmaids feel like a million dollars! Trust me when I say, she really know what she's doing and take her advice. I can not recommend her enough!!

Laura Cheetham

Got married last Sunday, 2 weeks before was let down by my make up artist.... Someone recommended Suezanna who agreed to do it at short notice with no make up trial I dont wear any make up, and hadn't liked my previous trial, so wasn't sure what to expect Well I was blown away with how Suezanna made me look...Had my make up done at 9.30 in the morning and when I went to bed at midnight, it still looked as good as when I 1st had it applied with not one touch up all day.. If I could have given 10 stars I would have...thank you soooo much

Siobhan Cashmore

What a amazing job was worried about my hair and was perfect and my girls xx

Sonia Jessica Masih

Thanks Suzy for the amazing hair and make-up you did for me and my bridesmaids yesterday. Still all looking brilliant some 15 hours after application :-) And I didn't feel like I had too much make-up on either which was a worry that I had. Thank you so much for helping to keep everything chilled when we were getting ready too. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Jo Collins

Suezanna, thank you so much for the amazing hairstyles you created for my gorgeous bridesmaids on my wedding day! Each one was individual yet they all tied in with the same theme! They even withstood the wind and crazy dance floor dancing! Highly recommend!

Jenna Tester

Thank you so much for my beautiful hair and make up on my wedding day, you made me feel and look wonderful!! You're so lovely, and helped me feel really relaxed :) definitely recommend you to anyone, you were really accommodating, kind and generous!! Thank you xx

Tasha Westgate

As a special occasion mua myself I approached Suzanna when she advertised her Smokey Eye Makeup workshop. I. Felt like i wanted to refresh and gain confidence in certain areas of my work and Suzanna welcomed me and made me feel at ease to come along to her workshop. At first impressions of walking into her studio I was made at ease straight away. Suzanna's studio is stylish and professional and her knowledge and skills shone through. I would definitely like to visit Make My Day again and treat myself to a special occassion makeup session and a workshop..

Hannah Hodgkiss

Make My Day is a great place, full of personality like its owner Suezanna. Was there as part of a hen party and we all had a great time getting pampered, we were so well looked after. Such a cool place to hang out too! Highly recommend! Thank you!

Becca Timlin

Suezanna is a fab make up artist who at the last minute came to the rescue after we were let down by someone else. I was dubious about having my make up done as I've had bad experiences in the past but I loved what she did. Also amazing job on my hair! She listened to exactly what I wanted and sorted it!

Laura Morris

Thank you so much Suezanna for doing mine, my bridesmaids and the mothers makeup for our wedding on 11th June 2016. You were amazing and even though a dog bit you the day before, you didn't let my girls or I down and we all looked fantastic! I believe my bridesmaids have even liked your page! Xxx

Siarrad Hunt

I attended the smokey eye masterclass, it was absolutely fab! Suezanna was so knowledgeable and patient, she went at a pace that we could all keep up with and spent time with each of us to give us pointers or tips. Suezanna put us all at ease as some of us were nervous about our abilities, she has a way of making people feel at ease and like you've known her for years - beautiful lady inside and out! Thank you so much! I can't wait for bridal makeup lesson later this month xx

Grace Foley

I didn't know Suezanna before I chose her to do my bridal hair and make up, we met on the off chance, and I'm so very glad we did. Being someone that doesn't usually wear any make up or have a particular style I was nervous about what to go for. Suezanna put me right at ease and guided me using her experience and knowledge. I was very surprised and pleased after my trial and booked Suezanna immediately. My experience with Suezanna on the big day way equally fantastic. She was early, professional and again put me at ease. The final results left me speechless! I have never felt so confident and beautiful in my life! Thank you Suezanna! And I will most definitely be recommending make my day to any future brides.

Jennifer O'Donoghue

Booked in early Thursday Morning to have my hair put up by Suzanne for my friends wedding and she couldn't have been any nicer! She fixed my fascinator and put my hair up perfect! By the time the night time came round and my fascinator came out my hair was still perfectly in place! Will definitely be coming back xx

Christy Leigh Dubberley
