Absolutely amazing!! I bought my daughter a make up lesson with Christiane and I honestly can not recommend her highly enough, her studio is beautiful, she has a huge selection of high quality products, and her knowledge is fantastic, but moreover her delivery of the lesson was outstanding, asking my daughter at each stage if she had any questions, giving her choices and so forth, I am so impressed that I am going to book a lesson myself, I am so grateful we found you Christiane we will always book with you now for special occasions, thank you Christiane you made us feel so comfortable and welcome we thoroughly enjoyed our visit! My daughters make up was fabulous! For anybody who is a little bit nervous about going along, rest assured Christiane will instantly set you at ease! We even enjoyed the Christmas music! Thank you so so much! More...

Wow - what a find!Christiane was responsible for my bridal party's make-up in November this year. She worked her magic on various bridesmaids aged between, 17-41. Christiane is incredibly talented and bang on trend. She is very easy to talk to and work with, all of us felt completely at ease during the whole experience. We all had different ideas of what look we wanted to achieve and Christiane managed to ensure we were all left feeling a million dollars! I wish I could give this review more than 5 stars! If you are lucky enough to secure her for your big day or any other occasion, you will not be disappointed! More...

I am so thankful I chose Christiane to do my makeup! Firstly, her customer service is the best I have ever received. The event I was going to had changed their time and Christiane was able to accommodate me and fit me in earlier which I was so grateful for as I was feeling very self conscious about the event and really wanted my makeup done.

I had Christiane do my wedding make-up. She was absolutely AMAZING. The results was brilliant and everything I wanted and more. She also did my bridesmaid make up and my mum. My mum is very fussy with her make up and won’t normally let anyone do her make up, however she loved her results and will not be using anyone else from now on. Christiane thank you so much for being a part of my special day and helping us all look stunning. More...

Hi, my name is Billie. I have been having a bit of a challenging time in my life, so, I wanted to do something to make myself feel really good about myself again. I decided that a new day time makeup regime would be a good place to start, so with some help from Google I trusted my intuition and I was blessed to have found Christiane Dowling Makeup Artistry. I have spent a some time with her today for a 1:2:1 session, without doubt it was the best couple of hours I have had since, well, my memory fails. As an older person and Trans woman I was made to feel so welcome and comfortable throughout the session. Christiane provided very clear information about every stage and detailed information about each product and how to use properly, with a written summary at the end of the session as an aide memoire, bless my memory. I was rather nervous when she asked if I would like some photos at the end of the session as I have a difficult relationship with photos of me, lol. I was so so pleased and surprised at the results, I looked fab, wow, it made me feel like a million dollars, thanks to Christiane who so made my day. I can't recommend highly enough, in, investing the time and money for a 1:2;1 session with Chrisiane, go on, you so deserve it. x More...

Christiane did mine, my mums and two of my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding on the 29th August, she did an absolutely amazing job. Christiane was very professional right from the first communication. At my trial she made me feel so comfortable and nothing was too much trouble, I didn’t really have any idea what style I wanted, and Christiane just went with it and I loved it so much. Christiane arrived super early on the wedding morning and took her time with each one of us, making sure everyone had exactly the look they wanted. I felt absolutely amazing all day long on my wedding day and I know my mum and bridesmaids did too. My makeup lasted all day and beyond and I didn’t need to touch up once. I fell asleep in my makeup, which I never usually do, but I woke up the next morning and my makeup was still perfect. Christiane was absolutely amazing from start to finish, right from the moment I got in touch with her. She was always happy to answer my (sometimes silly) questions and made me feel at ease.I would highly recommend Christiane, and I will certainly be returning for future special occasions. More...

Re: Make up session and Prom make up for my daughter.Christiane had the best communication style both in emails prior to bookings and face to face. The information she provided on her website, in her emails during and after the session was brilliant. Booking was a breeze. Christiane makes anyone instantly at ease. She is very easy to speak with.She is extremely talented and really take the client’s style and thoughts into her work.My daughter’s Prom make up was understated yet beautiful, just as she had wanted. It was absolutely right for the dress and overall look. The make up used was of the best quality and lasted throughout the evening, throughout Prom and beyond, and looked brilliant without the need to reapply.Christiane is clearly extremely knowledgable and talented yet she comes across as very down to heart.Booking a make up lesson or a special occasion make up with Christiane in my view, is an excellent investment and would make a fantastic gift that would be sure to please.I cannot recommend her enough!Quality experience and customer service throughout from a brilliantly talented make up artist and genuinely lovely person.

This weekend was the second time I have used Christiane for make up. Once for a wedding a few months ago, and this bank holiday weekend for a festival. Her make up is flawless, and lasts really well. My husband said it was the best make up I have had done and I have been to several other local make up artists. Three of my friends also went to Christiane for make up the same morning and were very impressed. Thank you Christiane. More...
