"Holly made me feel so relaxed from the start of the appointment. She is very friendly and we chatted throughout. Holly really listened to what I wanted / how I normally do my makeup and used that to enhance my look. She talked me through what she was doing and showed me tips and tricks throughout.
I was so happy with the overall finish and thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
