Testimonials/Reviews for Tina Brocklebank Make-up artist…

Here are some snippets from my client’s feedback for the ‘Wedding Industry – Wedding Make-Up Artist of the Year’ competition:

“I had previously had bad experiences with ‘makeup artists’, and I was so nervous to trust someone to do the job on my special day. From the moment I met Tina she made all those fears go away. She took the words right out of my mouth when I was trying to explain my vision and made me feel more beautiful than I ever had. She was so friendly and kind and worked exactly the same magic on my beautiful Mum’s and Bridesmaids too. I haven’t stopped singing her praises since the day.”

Mrs Sarah Bell, (Nee Basford.)

“Booking Tina for my wedding make-up was one of the best decisions I have made.  From the moment I sent an enquiry with regards to the wedding right through to the day itself, I felt that the standard of service was excellent.  Being quite an anxious person, I was quite surprised how Tina made me feel at ease and instilled confidence in me, which in turn made me so much more relaxed on such an important day and the results were amazing!  I can’t recommend her highly enough.   Thank you Tina!”

Mrs Lindsay Bennett, (Nee Clark.)

“Tina has such a fantastic approach to her passion, which has so deservedly become her profession.  From the moment I met Tina she made me feel at ease, taking time to learn about me and teach helpful hints.  I was totally at ease about how my make-up would look on the day and sent with a comprehensive list so I was able to purchase any items prior to the big day via the internet.  She gave every one of us a smile of confidence on a perfect day and for that I will be ever grateful, as she gave not only sparkle, but happiness too!”

Mrs Rebecca Sparling, (Nee Harries.)

“Tina is such a lovely make-up artist, she made me feel a million dollars.  Everyone commented on how good my makeup looked and I felt great.  She was fantastic.  I would recommend Tina to anyone.  Not only is Tina a lovely person, she takes great pride in her work and the outcome is amazing.”

Mrs Gemma Sawdon, (Nee Horsewood.)

“Tina is definitely the best in the business.  Right from the very beginning of checking her availability to the trial to the wedding day, she was always professional and she made sure that your visions for your bridal and bridal party makeup were always met to each and every detail.  When I first met her in person for my trial she was warm and welcoming and made me feel very comfortable with the entire process and the same again on my wedding day for myself and my bridal party.  She truly is the very best!”



Below are just a few examples of the lovely letters/feedback I have had from past happy clients.

“Tina did my wedding makeup for me recently and also my Mum and bridesmaids! She is such a lovely lady and such an expert in her field. My mum previously had a bad experience with a makeup artist and was scared to have her makeup done professionally again especially for such a big day it really worried her. After speaking to Tina and being reassured my mum went for a trial and was absolutely over the moon! I have never seen her so happy and confident! She looked beautiful! Tina took time to understand how my mum usually wore her makeup and my own and created a look that we was so happy with that’s why she is so special! Nothing is too much trouble! On the morning of the wedding she was such a calming presence we all felt so pampered! The morning wouldn’t have been the same without her! Our makeup looked beautiful on photographs and for one of the hottest days of the year so far it didn’t budge and stayed put right until the end of the night (and there was a lot of crying!) We received so many compliments! I honestly cannot recommend her enough! We can’t wait for another special occasion so we can have Tina do our makeup again! Thank you Tina you truly are the best at what you do! Thank you for making me feel so special x”

“Tina came and did mine, my Mums and 3 bridesmaids makeup for my wedding.  As soon as I sat down I felt relaxed and knew I was in the hands of a fab lady who would work her magic! I absolutely loved my make-up and got so many compliments all day. My Mum looks beautiful as did my 3 bridesmaids. As soon as any of the wedding party came from getting there makeup done they where instantly relaxed and where so calm. Tina is brill at her job and i would recommend anyone to book her, if they want professional, flawless longlasting make up for the most important day of your life! Thank you again Tina xxx”

“Just really wanted to tell the world (Facebook is a good start!!) what a wonderful person/makeup artist the lovely Tina Brocklebank is.

There is a story really, I got remarried on September 28 of this year, I’m 45 and really wanted to look my best. So I searched and researched a reputable make up artist who could make me look as lovely as I really wanted. My search brought me to Tina. So I booked her – almost a year in advance as she is so sought after. I was over the moon that I had managed to secure a fabulous make up artist for my wedding. Then my trial came, was on 1 August, the hottest day of the year!! I won’t lie, I was nervous. You see I love my makeup so I worried Tina might want me to have a natural look as a lot of make up artists do. But when I met her, she had done research on me!! She knew exactly how I looked what I liked and more importantly, how my then husband to be sees me!! I was nearly in tears. Such a lovely lady. I had no need to worry. My trial was amazing, she totally transformed me!! I was soo happy I almost skipped home!! The other fantastic thing was, my makeup lasted till gone midnight when I had to take it off for bed!! Of course it was the hottest day as well which made it even more brilliant.

On the day of my wedding, everything seemed to all happen at once, my hair wasn’t done when Tina arrived on time but she took it all in her stride. She was calmness it’s self. I was starting to flap and panic but Tina’s calm personality helped me totally. When I was finally ready for her, she sat me down talked to me and the world stopped for a while and seemed to just concentrate on Tina and myself. Phew!! Finally I felt at ease. Again she did my makeup to perfection and it lasted till after 1:00 in the morning from 12:30. What a wonderful lovely lady. I can do no other than recommend this amazingly talented beautiful lady.

Tina Brocklebank helped my wedding day be the best day of my life. Thank you wonderful lady. Xxxxx”

“Thank you so much to the amazing Tina who came to Nottingham and did a makeup workshop day and three beautiful looks on myself, my mum and my sister. She was so patient and thorough, and even wrote down a step by step plan with product list of how to apply on our own. So happy with our new found confidence in applying makeup! Couldn’t recommend her enough! Xxx”

Holly Sutherland-Sheeran

“Tina was recommended to me and I am so pleased to have her on board for my wedding party.

My mum and I met Tina for a trial run and she was so nice to us, excellent service and clearly a lady that knows her make up! Trust me she has enough of it! Tina puts you at ease and makes you feel so special.

Don’t delay book with her and you will feel truly amazing! She is worth every penny in my eyes. I can’t wait for my big day to come to see the look come into full effect with the dress! Thank you again Tina. See you in 8 weeks xxxx

Lisa Clarke

“A magnificent artist for any occasion !!!!! Tina’s passion for makeup shines right through in her work. She has a genuine up beat and fun personality and listens to her clients, delivering the makeup results you only ever see on an airbrushed magazine advert.
Tina did my makeup on my wedding day and made me look glamorous but natural at the same time. In addition she has worked her magic with the make up brush for a few special occasions and I never fail to be surprised at the reflection looking back at me in the mirror. I love the way she brings out the glamour queen in you !!!!

Every woman should have the ” Tina Brocklebank” experience once in their lives !!!”

Kerry Chinn

“Tina did my Bridal make up, as well as my mums and 4 adult bridesmaids. Despite it being over 2 years ago, I still think about how brilliant she was all the time! We all looked amazing! I’d heard that when Tina does your wedding make up, it lasts all day, and i didnt believe it. it does! I didnt have to re-apply anything but lip gloss! Without Tina my pictures wouldnt have looked so brilliant, she was worth every penny! She’s also a lovely person to boot. I cant reccomend her enough! I have wanted to book her for every wedding I have been a guest at since, but I can because all of the brides have booked her up! Thanks Tina :)”

Lyndsey Downes

“Tina made me look and feel like a princess on my big day. She perfectly interpreted how I wanted to look and my make-up was still going strong at 1am!! I looked like me, just better, and even my make-up hating husband loved how I looked! Tina is a truly talented lady and her calm, friendly nature made my wedding morning a pleasure. Thanks again xxxx”

Laura Crombie – (Ex-Editor of the Journal magazine)

“My experience with you was fantastic as you know I am a make up lover anyway so I was in my element being surrounded by all the great products you use! I felt at ease from the start and felt that nothing was too much trouble, you provided a relaxing atmosphere for both the trial and on the wedding day, you were a very calming influence. I can honestly say that from my point of view the wedding would not have been the same without your expertise and professionalism, I loved the whole look you created and I received so many compliments on the day. My mum looked amazing everyone couldn’t believe how young she looked, she was scared of makeup before, but she has now started trying out some of your techniques! Well done Tina! I know several brides to be and have already recommended you. Happy New Year and all the best for 2012, I hope to be able to come to you again for future special occasions.”

Hannah Downes

“Many thanks for the great make-overs you did – we were still going strong at 1 a.m – more importantly so was the make-up!  I felt a million dollars, you did such a fantastic job –  we had so many comments about our make-up and how great we looked.  You service was second to none, so friendly and you really listened to what we wanted (or didn’t want!)

I will certainly recommend you to anyone who has a special occasion to celebrate or wants a make-up lesson.  The products you use are great, all we had to do was re-apply the powder and lipstick for the evening – not bad for make-up applied at 9 a.m!  Thanks for banishing my dark circles and giving me back my eyebrows too!”

Mrs. L. Clarke (Mother-of-the-Bride)

“Everything you did for us for fab! We really did love our make-up and will definately recommend you to others.  Thanks for making me look and feel fab on my wedding day!”

Holly Henderson-Roberts, sister of the wonderful Ella Henderson.

“Thank-you so much for doing my wedding make-up for us all.  The make-up made such a big difference to my overall look and lasted so well.  You made my sister look lovely too, which I was pleased about as she hardly ever wears any make-up, so you did a wonderful job of enhancing her look without overdoing it.”

Tori Sandilands

“Tina was fantastic!  I didn’t know what to expect, but I’ve had friends contact me that I haven’t seen in years that have seen my wedding pictures, asking me “who did your make-up?”  She was really friendly, and made me feel really comfortable.  I had a couple of ideas that I asked her to try and she did them, no questions asked!  I would recommend her to everyone who was getting married.  Tina uses Bobbi Brown cosmetics and they are lovely.  Thanks Tina.”

Mrs.  Claire Ellis

“Tina did my bridal make-up and also my Mum’s make-up for my big day.  I am so glad I met Tina, not only did she make me feel at ease and very comfortable, she made me look and feel like a princess on my wedding day.  I couldn’t have met a nicer person, nothing was too much trouble, and her make-up techniques were exceptional.  I would not hesitate in using Tina in the future for any special occasions I attend and would highly recommend her without a doubt.  Thanks Tina for doing such a fantastic job”

Helen Kelly

“Tina is a true professional, she did an outstanding job when doing the make-up for our Miss Grimsby Telegraph contestants.  They all looked stunning and loved their make-up.  I received many comments about how great the make-up was.  I would thoroughly recommend Tina, she is very talented.  I would not hesitate to use her again in the future.”

Rebecca Hargaddon (Grimsby Telegraph head of marketing and promotions)

“Tina did my make-up  on my wedding day, bridesmaid’s and Mum’s.  Tina is exceptionally professional and an expert in make-up application.  Being a beauty therapist myself, I wanted someone I could trust and do it to a high standard and that is exactly what it was.  Everyone on the day commented how wonderful my skin looked, thanks to Tina.  Also, the products she uses are great quality.  I would definitely book Tina again and always recommend her.”
