My happy clients

About a year ago I made the change over from using a well known high end foundation for many many years and started using Kryolan. Kelly did a colour match session with me and I have been incredibly happy ever since. The foundation lasted me 8 months even using it every day and feels incredibly light on my skin. I can highly recommend Kelly as she is very professional and accommodating.

Theresa Raubenheimer

Kelly is beyond talented and super accommodating! She did my make-up better than I could have dreamed for my special day & made my girls look incredible too! Her finishing touches with labeled champers & personalizes make-up bags just finish off her service and leave a bride feeling so special and loved! You would be silly not to choose her to make you look extra beautiful for whatever special occasion.

Alexa Amos-Brown

There’s no one better in the business! Kelly is absolutely incredible at what she does and makes you feel like a work of art. She is kind, patient & listens to exactly what you’re wanting. She made me, my bridesmaids, my mom, mom-in-law and my gran feel like absolute princesses on my wedding day – I couldn’t be more grateful! Thank you, Kel, for everything you’ve done – you are AMAZING x

Chanel Dewar

Kelly knows her make up products inside and out. Kelly managed to fit me in after hours for a colour session without hesitation and is super professional and down to earth. So happy with my foundation colour and product she chose. Def will be a repeat customer.
