I found Reena on instagram when I was looking for Mua’s for my wedding in November 2017. From the initial consultation Reena was so easy to talk to and had such a calm presence during all the events which put me at ease. Reena spent a long time on me during the trials - as someone who doesn’t really wear a lot of make up she took the time to get the look I wanted even though I kept changing my mind and more than anything Reena listened - if I didn’t think something worked she changed it and she would offer honest opinions too. Offering a second trial as part of the package nearer the date was a definite win for me as by then I had all the jewellery and outfits that we could work with. I absolutely loved my hair and make up during all the events - Reenas a very talented Mua and the pictures of her work speak for themselves - choosing Reena for my big day was one of the best decisions I made.

Reena was hair and make up artist for both my wedding and reception. She also did my mum's make up for both events. She created 3 completely different looks for me and were exactly what I'd wanted and had pictured for ages. Considering that we had a relatively early start, with the obvious range of motions throughout the day, regardless of this my makeup remained flawless and every hair grip remained in place though it all. My mum's make-up stayed as flawless it was when Reena first applied it in the morning for 23 hours. To say mum didn't want any make-up done for my wedding is an understatement, she was adamant she didn't want any, but Reena reassured her that it wouldn't be caked or too heavy and she delivered just this - a simple but flawlessly stunning look for her. From the moment I booked Reena I knew I'd made the right decision. Not only was she extremely professional and friendly, she was patient and no request was to big. If you're looking for someone to create your dream look, but also be honest about what works and doesn't, Reena is definitely the one I'd recommend. I'd definitely be booking you for my future events! You're an amazing artist and person and I wish you all the best. Once again thank you for being an integral part if our magical day.

I had the pleasure of having Reena as my makeup artist and hairdresser for the wedding. Firstly, it was a blessing my original make up artist/hairdresser cancelled last minute as I would not have been able to discover Reena. Reena is an absolute delight to work with and came all the way to Cumbria for my wedding. My bridesmaids looked stunning and everyone said I looked amazing due to the excellent hair and makeup. I felt like an absolute celebrity. I would recommend Reena for any event but especially your wedding when you are at your most nervous! Reena listened to my ideas and put them into reality. Reena created a dream and I am truly grateful. I am even going to go to her for makeup lessons but I doubt I could acquire the skills she has to make me look how I looked on the wedding day. She is a kind soul and a talent artist so what are you waiting for, book her!

I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for the wonderful job you did for my hair and makeup, from trial to my reception, civil ceremony and my mum’s and sister’s too. You’ve just been brilliant. I appreciate the time and effort you put in and the result was more perfect than I could ever have imagined. Your work is truly stunning and you made sure I felt and looked fabulous. I feel so lucky to have found you. You are an incredibly talented person. You went over and above to make my day so special and made me feel like a million dollar on our wedding day. Thank you also for keeping me calm when I was panicking and keep changing my mind, for being so polite, for your patience and helping to make my day so perfect.
Reena, it was thanks to you that me, my sister and mother looked the way we did and I thought we all looked a-maz-ing!!!
Your relaxed, calm, happy nature truly showed your professional manner. With this we all felt confident, comfortable & relaxed to a certain extent as it still was quite scary as we've never used/put make up on before and what a result it was!
You have been an absolute pleasure to work with. You just made the planning process flow so seamlessly and were able to meet all of our requests without question.
I was completely blown away by how incredibly beautiful the make up was. The girls just looked so breathtakingly stunning. The make up looked flawless! So natural and perfect in every way. My make up was exactly what I wanted. We received so many compliments throughout the day!
A huge thank you as well for being so prompt and organised on the day. The entire preparation time just proceeded like clockwork and it made me feel relaxed knowing I could rely on you.
I definitely won’t hesitate in recommending you to all my friends and family.
Thank you so much!
Reena and I worked together on a shoot recently. She is an absolutely excellent makeup artist. Everything from the way she applied products, to her huge arsenal, to the finished product, was brilliant.
I was really impressed, as well, by her attention to detail; not only with the esthetics of the makeup but as an editor she has a unique perceptive on all the little things that will make life in post-processing easier if shifted slightly beforehand. She's also great to have a laugh with and made the sometimes boring and cold procedure of getting ready a real joy. Reena even went along with the various Instagram benders I went on.
Highly recommend her!
