I couldn't praise Marilyn highly enough, she was such a calming presence on the morning of my wedding and made the whole process so simple. From the beginning with my trial Marilyn listened to everything I wanted and her work was flawless. On the day of the wedding Marilyn arrived at the house early and stayed until just before we left ensuring everyone looked amazing leaving for the church. Our make up stayed perfect all day and late into the night with no touch up required. Marilyn listened to what everyone wanted on the morning and we were all delighted with our make up (not an easy feat when you consider that my five bridesmaids and I have very different styles and my mother never wears make up). I would highly recommend Marilyn to anyone looking for a professional make up service for their wedding (or any other event) as she was a delight to deal with. Thanks again Marilyn! -Tasha Conway (Bride)

Marilyn was my make up artist on my wedding day.She was the first to arrive to our house at Inch,bright and early and did an amazing job.Our make up lasted us for the whole day with no further application needed by any of us until we left the dance floor late that night.She is one of very few make up artists who will oblige to remain with you until you leave for the church at no extra cost.She was open and listened to any of our own suggestions, took them on board,making us all look amazing on our wedding day.She has a pleasant gentle manner which will sure to make you well at ease! Thank you Marilyn. -‎Noirin Ni Bhriain (Bride)

"Marilyn, from the bottom of my heart thank you for doing my wedding make-up last summer. You have managed to strike the perfect balance between being professional and relaxed with some fun thrown in for good measure. There was so much going on the morning of my wedding, from lots of people coming and going from the house, a new born baby being passed around to anyone with a free hand, to my intensely felt emotions of excitement and nerves. Despite all this commotion, you seamlessly fit into the background, got the job done to perfection, and were a calming force to whoever's face you were working on. I cannot recommend you enough.

From the first point of contact to the day of our wedding Marilyn was an absolute pleasure to work with. On the day of our wedding, Marilyn did my make-up, my bridesmaids and my mums make-up. We were all so delighted with the natural beautiful looks she created. She has a wonderful eye for colour, a steady hand, listens to requests and moved throughout the 'getting ready' part of our day with a clam, collected and caring attitude. I was so relaxed all morning because I knew we were in such great hands. -Michelle Ni Laoire (Bride)

I can’t thank Marilyn enough for doing such an excellent job of my and my wedding party’s make-up in June. It looked exactly as I had asked- fresh and natural, and it lasted all day long! She was such a pleasure to deal with and really helped to relax me that morning. So many of our guests commented on how lovely our make-up looked. I won’t hesitate in recommending her to any future brides that I meet.

 -Claire Crowley (Bride)

From the very beginning dealing with Marilyn has been a pleasure. She is quick to respond to emails and provide advice when necessary. She really listened to what I wanted during my trial and the look was beyond my expectations. Marilyn came to the house the morning of our Wedding and provided make up for myself, 3 bridesmaids and my mom. She waited until just before we left for the Church and she did such an amazing job...my make up was still in perfect condition at 3am the next morning (over 15 hours later!!). She is such a calm person and it really added to the relaxed atmosphere in the house the morning of the wedding - thanks for everything Marilyn!  -Ciara Stack (Bride)

Our makeup stayed all day and didn't require topping up. Thanks again for everything -Jeanette Brosnan (Bride)

Marilyn was such a fantastic choice for my wedding day! From the trials to the big day, she listened to everything I wanted, time was never an issue and she just wanted to get everything right and put me at ease. I had 4 bridesmaids and my mom (who never wears make-up)! so it was no easy task but Marilyn did an amazing job, keeping the atmosphere so calm and having a laugh along the way! I really couldn't recommend Marilyn enough for any occasion, a fantastic make-up artist and a fabulous person to deal with... Thanks so much. -Deirdre Hannon (Bride)

"When it came to planning our wedding, makeup was one thing I knew I didn’t have to worry about. Marilyn first did my makeup for my brother's wedding almost two years ago and I knew when it came to planning our day that she was the woman for the job :) She is so professional, relaxed and an absolute pleasure to work with. I had a bridal party of 5 and she didn't even break a sweat. Our makeup was very natural and exactly what I wanted. She did a fantastic job, I can't recommend her highly enough, you will not be disappointed." -Eilish Flaherty (Bride)

"Having seen the beautiful make up done by Marilyn on a number of friends for their wedding days I was delighted when I secured her for my date. And I wasn't disappointed. My bridesmaids, Mom and I were all thrilled with our natural, flawless make up on the day. Marilyn is a true pro and knows exactly how to ensure the make up lasts right into the night. After receiving my photos I was even happier to see how well it had photographed thanks to her talent and skill. Thank you again Marilyn." -Claire O'Sullivan (Bride)

"I would highly recommend Marilyn if you are looking for a make-up artist. She did the make-up for my wedding last September and I was absolutely thrilled with the result. It was natural, flawless and lasted the entire day - exactly what I wanted. Marilyn was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to the big day. On the morning of the wedding Marilyn was calm and relaxed, and even though 6 people were getting their make-up done, it never felt rushed and she put us all at ease. A real enjoyable experience. Thanks again!" -Juliette Pardy (Bride)
