Where do I start? Leigh was beyond fantastic! One of the best decisions I could've possibly made was having Leigh do my hair and make up on my wedding day. Everything was perfect! She really knows how to enhance your natural beauty, and make sure that you still look like 'you' on your special day. She has this amazing calming vibe, she's just so friendly and personal.It was great getting to know her a bit during my trial too, she really took the time to understand what what I was after (even when I wasn't too sure myself!). I loved that she looked at photos of how I did my own make up so she could gauge what I was comfortable with. She had fabulous suggestions and really just knew what would work. It was also lovely to have doggy cuddles from Ruby during the trial, she's gorgeous! Nothing was too much trouble for Leigh, and she really helped my wedding morning to smoothly and calmly. I really can't thank her enough.Also, Becca did updos for my bridesmaids and did a fantastic job, they all looked stunning and she was so friendly and helpful. It was the first time I'd met her but she really put everyone at ease and nothing was a bother.Thank you so much to the both of you, you're such talented, lovely people!

Perfect! The whole experience was just perfect! Leigh is legit one of the nicest people I have met! So professional but like a friend that gives the best advice! From trials to the big day everything was seamless! I couldn’t have wished for someone better to keep me calm and bring positivity on the morning of my wedding! Thank you so much! Xxxx

I'm not sure where to begin to explain how wonderful our experience with Leigh and her team of Megan and Becca was. From the first contact we had, Leigh was completely welcoming and enthusiastic - we were so confident in our choice and knew we could trust her for our special day. Leigh was incredibly communicative, whether over email or text, and was so accommodating with certain requests such as setting up in two spaces to help minimise any chaos and also last minute changes with numbers and hairstyles/make up choices! At my trial, Leigh took lots of time discussing our wedding and my experience with hair and makeup. It really felt like she understood what we were aiming for despite the fact I have next to no knowledge of the correct jargon to use! My trial was beautiful but I decided I wanted a completely different hairstyle closer to the wedding and she was so accommodating about this - looking at pictures of my dress to help me decide on a style that would be more complementary. On the day, she and her team had such chill vibes and I had a wonderful time getting ready. I only heard good things from the bridesmaids and family who had Megan and Becca looking after them and everyone was so stunning. It was lush to seem them feel so confident with their hair and make up. The mums and grandma had a particularly good time which made me so happy! Leigh stayed with us until the ceremony, helping with last minute touch ups, my veil etc. and my hair and make up lasted all day. I've never really felt more beautiful so if you're thinking about booking Leigh - I seriously recommend you do!

Couldn't recommend Leigh enough! Loved the trial, everything was done exactly how I imagined and Ruby made me feel right at home 🥰Leigh and Megan were amazing on the wedding morning! All the bridesmaids looked beautiful and leigh did an amazing job of making my hair and makeup look flawless, got loads of compliments throughout the day on our hair and makeup too!Thank you both again and would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for hair and makeup!

Leigh and Becca were amazing, really made us feel comfortable and did an amazing job with our hair and make up for my friends wedding. Leigh started my hair and makeup at 8am and it still looked just as good at 2am. Couldn’t recommend her enough

I honestly cannot thank Leigh and Megan enough for making my wedding day so personal and everything I could have ever wanted in a hair and make up artist. I have met many hair stylists and many make up artists but the fact Leigh is so amazingly talented at providing both services is OUTSTANDING! The quality and talent of her hairstyles and make up application is out of this world and I could not have hired anyone else to make my wedding hair and make up absolutely beautiful and flawless.Not only did Leigh and Megan do mine and my bridesmaids hair and make up. They were so polite, respectful and got to know us on a personal level which made us feel so comfortable whilst remaining so professional in what they do. They helped us settle into my wedding morning and ensured it was as stress free as possible. Their time management was magnificent and the whole morning flowed perfectly. I was also 7 months pregnant on my wedding day and Leigh ensured I had everything I needed and really looked after me.I would pay any amount of money to have Leigh included in making me look and feel beautiful about myself, so I cannot thank you enough Leigh and Megan for your excellent service and talent, it was a huge part of my wedding day! I would definitely highly recommend MUBYLEIGH!Thanks again!

I could not recommend Leigh and her team enough!I found Leigh on Instagram after seeing pictures of her glamming other brides who had nothing but positive things to say! Her work looked amazing and I couldn’t not book her. From our initial messages, she was so lovely and her communication was great throughout.I absolutely loved my hair and make trial which couldn’t have gone better. Leigh was so friendly and easy to talk too. I also loved the company of her cute dog! She listened to everything I had to say. It made me so excited for the big day. She even gave me some recommendations of beauty products which would help my skin leading up to the wedding which was really helpful.Leigh, Becca and Megan came to do our hair and makeup for my wedding on the 19.04.24.This included myself, 5 bridesmaids and mother of the bride hair and makeup. They also did mother of the groom makeup and hair for one of my friends. Leigh was so organised and had a schedule given to us well in advance which was really helpful and made sure everyone was ready on time. It all ran so smoothly!They made us all look and feel amazing. Everyone said it is the best hair and makeup they’ve ever had done.Leading up to the wedding, I was really nervous as I don’t like being the centre of attention or getting my photo taken. But Leigh was so calming, and made me feel so confident in myself. I was so relaxed on the morning and throughout the wedding day. I do think this was mainly down to Leigh and her team!Leigh, Becca and Megan were so friendly and great to talk to. It was like having 3 extra friends around on the morning of the wedding. We had a right laugh. They stayed till the very end and even helped with putting on my dress, shoes😂 and last minute touch ups.We all received so many compliments about how amazing our hair and makeup was on the day too. It lasted all day/ night and didn’t budge. Some of the girls even had their hair still up looking perfect for our day 2 party.I could never thank yous enough. There’s no wonder your schedule is always filled up in advance. Yous are amazing at what you do. I will not stop recommending you to future brides!!Picking MUBYLEIGH was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding🤍🤍🤍

Where to start with this review...if you are looking for a hair and makeup artist, go no further, book MUBYLEIGH. I promise you, you wont regret it.I booked Leigh after trawling Instagram for what seemed like forever, until I came across Leighs account. I was immediately sold. I had some bad experiences with other artists due to bad communication and missed meetings on their part. Leigh was amazing, got straight back to me and was all booked within a matter of hours!I visited Leigh for my trial, I was a little apprehensive as I do not often wear makeup or pay much attention to my hair!Leigh listened to everything I envisaged and talked through other options I had not considered, I trusted any feedback and I was blown away at my trial, not only for my hair and makeup, but how relaxed I felt, Leigh was so easy to talk to and felt like I was just catching up with a friend.On the day, Leigh and Megan arrived on time and felt part of the bridal party straight away, they talked to everyone to listen to what they wanted and even put my Mum at ease who had not had makeup done before (She looked BEAUTIFUL!), thank you Megan!Leigh came with me to where I had my dress put on and did some final touches. As the nerves were starting to set in, I felt as though I really wanted some chewing gum to focus on something, I asked Leigh if she had some, and straight away she rang Megan who went and got some from her car! The care and kindness from both Leigh and Megan was another level.Picking MUBYLEIGH = One of the best decisions we made.

Choosing Leigh for my hair and make up was without a doubt the BEST decision I made when planning my wedding, so sorry but not sorry for the essay of a review. I could write a novel about Leigh and it probably still wouldn’t do her justice!Even before we’d met, Leigh sent me advice and tips on how to maintain a good skin routine and get the healthiest hair possible in the lead up to the wedding, which made all the difference and made me comfortable speaking with her from day one of booking.As a self conscious bride it can be tempting to hide behind a load of OTT make up, but you don’t have to worry about that with Leigh. As soon as I walked into her lush home studio, sat down and started chatting with her, the insecurities started to melt away. She knows just how much to encourage and support you without it coming across as disingenuous in any way, and helps you begin to feel comfortable in your own skin before she’s even applied any make up, which is an unbelievable skill in itself. It feels like she wants to help you enhance what is already there rather than create a completely new image of yourself. I loved my trial with Leigh and didn’t want to change a thing, she got it so spot on. The way she added my chosen hair accessories was absolutely perfect, and the lip combo she used is now my favourite to use on myself! It was the lushest little afternoon (with bonus cuddles from gorgeous wee Ruby).Leigh sent me a thorough and well presented schedule of the wedding morning well before the big day, giving me loads of time to inform my bridesmaids/family of how the morning would run. As a very keen planner (control freak) myself, this made all the difference!My wedding morning wasn’t quite as calm, in fact it was a wee bit chaotic but Leigh, Megan and Becca weren’t phased in the slightest and instilled a sense of calm as soon as they arrived. They got set up quickly and started hair and make up promptly, and helped the morning run as smoothly as it could, staying so calm and chilled despite working in a bit of a madhouse. My bridesmaids and mam all looked gorgeous, had their preferences listened to and realised, and we couldn’t be more chuffed! They were so lush and friendly that it just felt that we had 3 extra (very talented) bridesmaids along for the day.Leigh herself did my hair and make up and I couldn’t be more grateful to her for calming me down, helping me when I felt anxious and she made me feel the most beautiful I’ve ever felt. She even helped me into my dress and did the final touches despite time running away with me towards the end, and she was still cool as a cucumber! We also had a proper chuckle all morning long, which I will always remember when I look back on the day. Without Leigh and her team there I genuinely don’t think the morning would’ve run anywhere near as smoothly as it did, they really do know what they’re doing!I had so many compliments on both my hair and make up - I don’t think people expected me to embrace the more natural make up look but I couldn’t be happier that I did, and I don’t think I’d have felt brave enough to embrace it had it not been Leigh on the end of the make up brush! It lasted all day long, even despite the head banging.There’s a reason Leigh has a busy schedule and is so in demand; she really is the best at what she does, is an absolute hoot to be around and has the dreamiest team alongside her. I’m so glad I was able to book her for my wedding day and will be relentlessly recommending her to any future brides I meet!Anna xxx

Leigh was genuinely amazing from the moment I booked her. Her work speaks for itself on her website and social media and I new she was the only one I'd want to do mine, my bridesmaid and mams hair and make up.Like myself my mam, and bridesmaids aren't the most confident with make up and hair but all of them were so impressed at the hair and makeup done by Leigh and her amazing team.Genuinely never felt so confident before, the hair and make up lasted all day and all night without flaws. Leigh and her team did such a a good job at listening to everyone's preferences, insecurities etc and made us all feel like the best version of ourselves.They're all so polite, friendly, professional.Leigh was like an extra bridesmaid on the day, she went above and beyond helping me get into my dress and bridesmaids too, working with the photographer to get pictures and definitely helped to keep me sain and calm on the day!Honestly couldn't recommend enough!Katie xx

As the most anxious and quiet bride that existed, Leigh was an actual life saver. Not only was she incredibly organised and professional, but she felt like a friend there for support too. From giving my hand a squeeze when the room got overwhelming to staying to make sure everything was perfect before I was leaving.As someone who also doesn’t really wear much makeup, Leigh created a beautiful look which empowered me, whilst keeping true to my style. Everyone commented on my makeup and I felt really beautiful!110% would recommend - you won’t regret it! Xxx

I honestly can’t put into words how amazing Leigh is at what she does! 😍I stumbled across her instagram when searching for natural & glowy makeup artists and was instantly sold - plus the added bonus that the she does hair too! It’s extremely hard to find someone who is talented at both hair and makeup, and I’m so glad that I found her.I was a little apprehensive about getting my makeup done for the wedding as I don’t really wear a lot of day to day, however after my trial I couldn’t have been more excited for the big day.Leigh made sure I was happy with everything throughout the trial, and I felt so comfortable with her to suggest a few very small tweaks which made me feel like the best version of myself. I couldn’t stop looking at my trial pictures in the lead up to the wedding.Her communication beforehand was fantastic, and I genuinely felt like I was chatting with my pal.On the day itself, Leigh & Becca exceeded all my expectations. Everything ran so smoothly and they worked really well with my videographer & photographer to get some beautiful shots of the morning.Leigh’s calming presence helped to keep my nerves at bay when I started to get overwhelmed before walking down the aisle, for this I cannot thank her enough. She even took me outside for a breather when it all got a bit too much, and she made me laugh at a pony in a field 🤣.Leigh remembered all the little tweaks we’d discussed in my trial and brought them to life on the day. I even opted to add some hair extensions to thicken my hair which we didn’t use in the trial and she was able to cut and position them perfectly (sorry for not buying the ones you told me - oops 🙈)!I couldn’t have loved the finished look more… I absolutely adored everything and truly felt like a princess.Leigh, I honestly can’t imagine the wedding day without you. Thank you so much for being a part of my day ❤️.

Could not recommend MUBYLEIGH enough for your special day! I knew I had to have Leigh after stalking her instagram and seeing the quality of her work; it was exactly what I wanted for my wedding.I wanted somebody who was equally as good at hair and makeup as I felt it would be easier and less stressful to have to sort this out just once.When I went for trial Leigh immediately put me at ease - she really listened to what I had in mind and I trusted her recommendations. I was absolutely not disappointed - I felt amazing. We tried with and without accessories and she helped me settle on my final look to bring everything together.Leigh and Megan arrived on time on the wedding morning and quickly got set up. They were both such a calming presence in the room and chatted with all of my Bridesmaids, and just felt like two extra friends in the room - actually one of them has booked Leigh for her wedding in 2025. I felt so good about myself on the day and a massive part of that was choosing MUBYLEIGH. Thank you - you are amazing at what you do!Gina xxx

From the initial enquiry to the trial the big day I felt nothing but comfortable and at ease with Leigh. Each request was handled beautifully and the hairstyles were works of art that stayed put throughout the day regardless of how windy it got and how much we danced.Could not have made a better choice!

Leigh and Megan were absolutely amazing on my wedding day. They arrived prompt, were so lovely and friendly and really brought a calm vibe for the wedding morning. We never felt rushed and the girls couldn’t have done enough for us, making sure my makeup had finishing touches up until I walked down the aisle!I absolutely loved my hair and makeup, and my Mam and bridesmaids all looked and felt amazing too.As a natural curly girl I was worried when looking for hair stylists that they may struggle to style my natural curls. But Leigh was absolutely amazing and styled my curls perfectly.I really couldn’t reccomend the girls at MUBYLEIGH any higher, they’re an absolute must for the day of your wedding!

This team is a MUST have for your wedding day. Leigh was such a gorgeous and calming influence over the morning and our hair was PERFECT (and stayed in place all day despite the wind & rain). She helped fit my veil, get into my dress and even locked up the accommodation for us as we hurried off to the ceremony! And I enjoyed the trial so much I’m going back this month to model some new styles! 🤍 Thank you Leigh!

I booked Leigh for my wedding in august 2023 from the moment I met her at my trial I just knew I’d made the right decision such a calming energy and I couldn’t of wished for a better outcome of my hair and makeup, I had Leigh, Megan and becca on the wedding morning and they are all just lovely girls they felt like part of the bridal party, Leigh knew just what I needed in certain moments on the morning and made me feel at ease, I’ve never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day and the videos Leigh took are such a perfect keepsake, I can’t thank the girls enough and would recommend to any upcoming brides 💕

Wow, what can I say to thank Leigh and Megan enough! I’d stumbled across Mubyleigh on instagram and from my initial enquiry, the service was amazing. From a simplicity perspective I wanted to book someone who could do both hair and makeup, and they certainly are amazing at both.My initial enquiry was full of lots of questions as I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup so was worried about not looking like myself, but Leigh provided all the answers I needed. The booking process was simple and following a flawless trial experience with Leigh I knew I was in safe hands. Before the wedding day, we also were sent a breakdown of the morning schedule when everyone would be having their hair and makeup done - this was really useful for us all to plan showers and breakfast around!On the wedding day, Leigh and Megan arrived early and set up before most of our party were even awake! They were highly professional and really set the tone for the morning, we had such a wonderful time with them and really felt like part of our bridal party - they knew just the right balance for getting us excited but keeping me calm too!When I was almost ready and Leigh was doing the final finishing touches for me, I caught sight of my reflection in a mirror in the corner of the room - that almost set me off crying! I couldn’t believe it was my reflection in the mirror. My bridesmaids, mum and auntie all looked beautiful and were so delighted, they absolutely loved the experience too.Throughout the wedding day and into the night, our hair & makeup definitely had the staying power! Thank you so much to Leigh and Megan - I can’t imagine my wedding day without them and highly recommend anyone who’s considering booking Mubyleigh to not even hesitate!

To start with Leigh is a must have for your wedding day!I found Leigh on Instagram and immediately knew she was the hair and make up artist I wanted. As soon as Leigh opened her diary for 2023 I had my email ready to send. It was honestly the best decision. Leigh was amazing from start to finish. My trial was amazing and Leigh was so calm and friendly, she managed to capture my vision perfectly! As someone who doesnt wear a lot if make up it was important to still like me, which i did but Leigh had brought out all of my features perfectly. Leigh uses a shared Google drive to upload pictures to so she had an idea of the style I wanted before the trial.On the wedding day Leigh and Megan arrived and got set up straight away. They worked their magic on us all, my mam never wears make up or her hair up and she loved her final look. Leigh and Megan are both beautiful people inside and out, from Megan helping my 4 year old neice to complete her bunny teddy's make up, to Leigh helping me stay calm when the venue started asking a million questions and stepping in when she could it was overwhelming. They even helped to calm a family member down when it was overwhelming and helped to make sure my dress was on perfectly. I honestly can't thank you both enough for making us all feel beautiful. One of my bridesmaids slept in her hair and make up and it was still perfect the next day. Leigh I've never felt so beautiful in my life and would book you for anything I ever needed to. I cannot reccomend you enough.

I am so thankful that I found Leigh for my wedding hair and make-up. It is very rare that an artist can do hair and make-up both to such a high standard, it made the organising and logistics so much easier. I was instantly put at ease during my trial, Leigh really listened to what I wanted and made suggestions to make me look and feel my best. I felt like I was in the hands of a professional at every step. When it came to the wedding day my mum and sister were a bit apprehensive but both were overwhelmed with their final results and my 5 year old neice loved the hair glitter and gloss. Leigh and Megan made my bridal party so relaxed and we had an excellent time getting ready, it was a great experience. They were both so attentive yet fun to be around, they went above and beyond and totally exceeded my expectations. Thank you 💕

I wanted to book Leigh for ages and had an alert on for when her diary would open. I had struggled to find someone else in the area who offered both hair and make up and a modern, fresh style at a good price point. When I went for my trial, I was so pleased with my decision. Not only did Leigh totally deliver (my mother-in-law came with me and watching Leigh work described her as an ‘artist’), but she was so easy to chat to. Its really important you have people you like and can relax around on your wedding day, and Leigh is 100% your friend in the room. I felt like Leigh listened to what I wanted and made good suggestions using her expertise. I wasn’t sure what lipstick shade I wanted and tried to describe it. I eventually bought the perfect one from Mac. On the day, Leigh turned up with the same one, which shows how thoughtful she is - but also that she knows what she’s doing.My hair and make up on the day, and that of my bridesmaids, was perfect. My other girl friends said after that we all looked like ourselves, but the best version. It was really important to me (as someone who doesn’t wear much make up day to day) that we didn’t suddenly look like different people and Leigh really understood that, as did her colleague Megan who was supporting her on day and was also fab.As well as doing hair and make up, Leigh was so knowledgeable about weddings in general (when to take the bouquets out of water, what the registrar will ask) and this really helped keep me calm on the day. She’s also not shy to tell your bridesmaids to get a move on if they are faffing - she makes sure its all about you!I keep trying to think up an excuse to get my hair and make up done again so I can book Leigh.Run, don’t walk, to book!

Leigh and her team are absolutely wonderful. They really are so much more than a hair and makeup team, it’s like having additional bridesmaids. Leigh is so patient and has the natural ability to make you feel relaxed, as well as making you look amazing! My girls and I loved our hair and makeup, it looked as beautiful in person as it does in the photos. I honestly couldn’t recommend Leigh more.

Leigh and her team did hair and makeup for my wedding party of 4 adults and 2 children in August 2023. She is absolutely lovely, so much fun to have around, and was such a chilled vibe whilst getting everyone ready !! A timetable was prepared in advance so everyone knew exactly where they needed to be and when and this massively reduced stress for everyone whilst structuring the morning. Everyone absolutely loved Leigh and I had compliments literally all day on my hair and makeup - so many men were beyond impressed with my hair (lots of dried flowers throughout) and all the girls wanted to know about the body shimmer Leigh used to give me a real glow!I cried so much throughout the day and my makeup stayed PERFECT but was easy to remove after a long day. My hair was also impressively still in place at midnight given it had been through rain, tears, sweat, and some intense dancing!!The kids within the party were handled brilliantly - they were obsessed with their hair and sparkle and truly felt like princesses!!I couldn’t have picked a better team and absolutely recommend them if you want to feel like the most elevated version of yourself on your wedding day, have a great time getting ready, and have support from Leigh right up to the moment you’re heading down the aisle. I cannot thank Leigh and her team enough 💕

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Leigh! She was so much more than my bridal hair and make-up artist! Leigh is not only super talented at what she does, she is the most gorgeous person (inside and out) to have around.Leigh made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! She's amazing at being able to create the best version of yourself. I loved everything about my final bridal look, so much so that I kept my hairstyle in for the following day!Leigh and Becca were the perfect team and truly went above and beyond throughout the whole morning. I can't thank them both enough and really hope to see again in the future. I would highly recommend booking Leigh and her team as soon as possible!Thank you again Leigh for everything xx

Booking Leigh was one of the best things I did for my wedding. She not only made me look and feel amazing on my wedding day, she was an absolute god-send in keeping me calm and relaxed all morning. She kept everything fun and relaxed and I'll be forever grateful. She was like the extra bridesmaid I didn't know I needed and honestly, much more helpful that some of my actual bridesmaids! I cannot recommend or praise her enough. Brides in the North East - book Leigh! She is the best in the business and you won't regret it.

I cannot begin to recommend Leigh enough if you’re looking for someone to do your bridal hair and make up, she is absolutely incredible at what she does! She knew exactly what I was after in my trial and with a few minor tweaks on the big day, created the most perfect look! It was really important for me to find someone who uses quality products to create a natural yet glam look and Leigh did just that. Thank you so much again!

Honestly, look no further than Leigh for your bridal hair and makeup! On the trial day Leigh brought my ideas to life and took so much care to get to know me as a person so the ‘look’ really felt like me.Leigh paid so much attention to detail and my preferences, so on the wedding day itself I was just blown away with how perfect my eyes, skin and hair felt! I felt like the best version of me and the look stayed put until the early hours! The two mums were both quite shy of makeup but they absolutely loved their looks, and my little 4 year old flower girl was spoiled with some glitter eye shadow.Above everything, I was unexpectedly very anxious on the wedding morning but Leigh and her assistant Becca's ability to bounce off the whole bridal party put me at east within minutes and that is what I am most grateful for 🤍 could not recommend Leigh highly enough!

We all absolutely loved our hair and makeup done by Leigh, so much so that we all woke up in it the next day because we didn’t want to take it off!!She was an absolute dream to have there on the morning and had such a calming effect. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a hair & makeup artist in a heartbeat.

Leigh and her assistant Megan were absolutely amazing on the day of my wedding, and even in the lead up to the wedding. The hair and makeup trial with Leigh was great, she made me feel so comfortable asking for what I wanted and delivered tenfold! On the actual day of the wedding Leigh and her assistant, Megan, showed up bright and early with a positive attitude ready to do hair and makeup for me (the bride), the mother of the groom and the mother of the bride, and four bridesmaids!Despite the early wakeup time and the amount of people needing services, Leigh and Megan had such a fun attitude and the hair and makeup services were impeccable. Everyone looked so beautiful on the day. I really felt like a princess, but still very much like myself, Leigh's talent is just incredible. I also have to commend her ability to adapt to different skin tones and age groups, as everyone looked amazing and we were a diverse group! If you are in the northeast of England and are not sure you can find someone to do more natural but still glam bridal makeup that fits a variety of skin tones, I absolutely must recommend Leigh and her team!The photos attached in my gown were taken on a phone camera with natural lighting and no editing and the makeup still looks flawless! The photo with the green dress was at the end of the night and the makeup is still going strong!

Cannot reccomend Leigh highly enough. Her, Megan & Sian were a friendly calm presence on the morning of my wedding and we all left feeling amazing. Leigh is an artist who really listens to what brides wants but can make them look better than they even hoped! Loved every minute of the time spent with Leigh and the team as did all my bridal party. Thank you so much Leigh xxx

Leigh did my bridal make-up and hair along with my bridesmaids and family members on the morning of my wedding. Not only was the make-up and hair incredible, but Leigh was an absolute joy to have around. She fit straight in with everyone and helped in every area she could. From opening the door to let suppliers in, helping me into my dress, carrying my train while I got into the car and saving the day with a few outfit emergencies. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation and I only wish I was getting married all over again so I could book her once more.Thank you Leigh! 🤍

What a brilliant, professional service provided by Leigh and her team. We all had such a fabulous morning getting our hair and makeup done before my daughter’s wedding, this included all the bridesmaids, mother’s of the bride and groom and the bride. I cannot recommend her enough! ❤️

Leigh did my wedding day hair and make up back in May at Charlton Hall. All I can say is she is amazing and so talented! When I went for my bridal trial Leigh knew exactly what I wanted and is such a lovely bubbly person, which makes a bride to be so at ease! I cannot recommend Leigh enough! Leigh even stayed to help me into my dress, styled my veil and helped with my awkward buckle on my heels. Megan was also so lovely! I cannot have imagined my wedding morning without them both!

After knowing how amazing Leigh's talent is, I trusted her to do my make up for an important awards ceremony in the wedding industry. I couldn't have been happier! She executed what I asked for perfectly and with ease. She's such a natural talent and a really lovely person. I didn't want to leave the chair the experience was so relaxing and enjoyable.Its no wonder she's thought of as one of the best in the industry!Thank you Leigh for making me look and feel amazing.

Leigh is the honorary bridesmaid I didn’t realise I needed! From the trial to the wedding day everything she did was truly perfect and she somehow just totally gets you and your bridal style?! She and Becca made the whole bridal party look absolutely incredible and we had such a lovely morning together. Not only are they both insanely good and their jobs but just gorgeous people to have around. They are more than hair and makeup - they helped us with so many little things that we were too nervous or busy to do! If you’re thinking about booking her, don’t even think twice.

Leigh is AMAZING at what she does!I am not someone who wears a lot of make up and I never have. I was a bit worried about wearing foundation as I didn't want to feel that my face was clogged and I wouldn't feel like 'me'.But....she used foundation which I never even noticed. She created the most beautiful boho hair style and slightly changed it from my trial hair. The detail she created was everything I imagined and more! My make up was stunning! I have honestly never felt so beautiful in my entire life and I was so confident getting my photo taken all day.My make up and hair lasted all day and night (the next morning too!). I received so many comments about my hair and make up throughout the whole day.Leigh not only did my hair and make up......but she did SOOOO much more. She helped put the flowers in my bridesmaids hair, she moved from one venue to another to do touch ups and last minute tweaks, she passed message on, helped organise others and even tried her very best to be my own security to try and shield me from some family who wanted to see me before the ceremony!I couldn't have asked for someone better suited for the day. Professional, kind, creative and PURE AMAZING all rolled into one!Do not hesitate to book MUBYLeigh.....you will not regret it!

My sister chose Leigh for her bridal makeup and my bridesmaid makeup because her page was full of gorgeous glowy brides, and she definitely did not disappoint. Our makeup was absolutely gorgeous! Natural and glowy but enough to stand out in pictures, which is everything you want for a wedding. Leigh slotted right in with the bridal party and was such a calming presence all morning, going above and beyond makeup artist duties to help us and the bride right up until getting in the car to leave (even taking her to the toilet!). Just amazing, couldn’t recommend her enough.

Leigh and Megan are absolutely amazing. It was like getting your hair and makeup done by a friend. Such a lovely warm experience from start to finish. It’s the one time I’ll admit I looked gorgeous. The makeup was me but enhanced - which is what I asked for. Leigh knew exactly what I meant when I said natural and me. As for my hair, I knew I wanted it up but wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted - told Leigh this and she came up with the perfect style. Everyone had a great morning with these girls and I hope to see them at another wedding!

I found it really hard to find a makeup/hair stylist that felt right, but when I came across MUBYLEIGH on Instagram I knew I had found the right team! Leigh’s bridal style is super natural and gorgeous and I couldn’t be happier with everything she did for me and my bridesmaids.My hair/makeup trail was effortless and amazing - I’m not really good at explaining what I wanted and Leigh understood me perfectly and created my amazing bridal look.The morning of the wedding Leigh and Megan rocked up with their amazing skills, professionalism and chilled out vibes. They fit in so perfectly and we all had a laugh AND they made us all look amazing! Couldn’t of asked for a better hair and make up team!

Leigh was absolutely brilliant on the day, did my hair exactly as I wanted and was more than happy to make a few tweaks when I wanted some parts changing. She was also great at telling me what I needed to compliment my hair type/face shape which is exactly what you need. Once she had done all our hairs she helped my frantic dad and brother do their button holes, just little things like that made her the perfect addition to the day. Thanks Leigh xxx

Leigh did my hair and make up on my wedding day as well as the hair for my bridesmaids and she did an amazing job. She made me feel like the best version of myself and both hair and make up stayed put the whole day despite hot weather and non-stop dancing! As soon as I met Leigh at my trial, she was so warm and welcoming and it felt like I’d known her ages already which immediately put me at ease. On the actual wedding morning, I couldn’t have asked for any more; Leigh honestly went above and beyond and was so helpful in many ways outside of her role. I would highly recommend her to any bride looking for a hair / make up artist. Thank you again Leigh for everything ❤️

I left looking for a hair/makeup artist very last minute and I’m so glad & very lucky to have found Leigh. After sending a quick message through hitched and our initial emails I knew straight away I’d found my makeup & hair stylist. The whole process has been absolutely seamless and it was like talking to a friend, I’m so incredibly lucky to have found Leigh and she & Megan made the wedding more so relaxed and fun.At my trial she created the most amazing hair and makeup from the inspo I showed her, I honestly felt like a princess and I was amazed with the end result and couldn’t wait to show my friends and family! In the build up to the wedding I couldn’t stop going back and looking at the pictures! Ruby, her dog is also the cutest little thing ☺️In the lead up to the wedding day I loved getting my schedule for the morning and my youngest bridesmaid & flowers girls mum loved this touch especially when my phone auto corrected one of the girls name! She has always said that was an a amazing touch to email her and correct it.Fast forward to the wedding day, Leigh & Megan were absolutely amazing, aside from everything being absolutely flawless with all of our hair & makeup, they made the morning so relaxing and fun, I can’t thank them enough. They also helped remove a huge spider and moved the furniture just to help us get the most amazing pictures! They also stayed around after doing all of our hair & makeup to do little touch ups if they were needed.Going the extra mile to help me into the car and make sure my makeup & hair were protected from the rain! All of my bridesmaids loved their hair & makeup.I honestly can’t thank them enough and I feel incredibly lucky to have found Leigh, it felt like I was with a friend and I really hope we stay in touch ☺️They are both incredible at what they do and I can’t recommend them enough.

More than just hair and Make-UpReviews are always difficult to write – they either sound like a forced love letter or can be overly robotic in tone.But I did want to write a review for MUBYLEIGH – because she is so much more than a hair and makeup artist and was a bit of life saver on my wedding day.Leigh arrived with Becca to do the hair and make up for my mother and I and the hair for my four bridesmaids. All went without a hitch!Prior to this day, you get invited to Leigh’s studio where you have a hair and make-up trial and meet the gorgeous Ruby – little sausage dog. For someone like me, the whole idea of hair and make up is not my thing – but I was put at total ease and left feeling excited for my wedding day! A few weeks later I received a plan for the day for the wedding party – an itinerary. My style!I surprised myself when I completely changed my hair ideas just weeks before the wedding and didn’t feel remotely anxious because I trusted Leigh and her skills. On the day itself, I got a sudden spurt of excitement and changed my lip colour as well. Leigh was great…assured me if I changed my mind – we could wipe it off and start again. Luckily it was great.Hair and make-up done, I next expected to see Leigh just before the aisle for a quick touch up – but she popped up to the room and just at the right time. We were having a mare with the hoop and the buttons on the back (which we hadn’t noticed before today!) Leigh was calm, stooped in, sorted it all and did the final touch ups! Honestly, I cannot begin to explain what that sense of calm brings to the day. So, thank you, for that and your amazing skills. 100% recommended!

Absolutely amazing! I can’t recommend Leigh enough! I was really cautious at first as I don’t usually wear much make up but Leigh made me feel at ease and my make up was perfect and lasted the whole day!Both Leigh and Megan are lovely girls and I’m so glad they were there on my wedding morning!

Leigh & Megan were so amazing on my wedding day. Along with myself, my bridesmaids, mum and mother of the groom were all delighted with their hair & make up. It was so much fun getting ready together - Leigh and Megan just made the whole experience so great! I also really appreciated having my hair & make up trial at Leigh’s lovely home well in advance, as that meant we’d figured out together exactly what would be perfect on the day itself. She really put me at ease on the day and even helped out with getting sorted for photos when our photographer arrived. We were all so impressed. I’ve had so many comments on how great my hair and make up looked on the day. Thank you so much!!

Leigh and her team did the brilliant hair and make up for me and my bridesmaids / family for our wedding in May 2022. From start to finish she put us all at ease. The trial beforehand was in a gorgeous studio in her home which was very professional and well finished and I thoroughly enjoyed being pampered and trying out the intended look which I wore to my hen party and got so many compliments for!On the big day, despite an early start Leigh brought a bubble of calm and sunshine into our getting ready space and worked non stop to get us all ready and feeling great. Her patience and professionalism is second to none and nothing is a hassle. We found out my hair comb was broken and Leigh fixed it without hesitation.She joined us in the bridal suite to ensure that everything was perfect and provide any last minute touch ups and I was so glad to have her with us as she led us all through the wedding morning with ease and serenity.My favourite photo with Leigh is when my Dad joined us and she can be seen having a wee celebration in the corner at his reaction - she truly is invested in you having the best time and I can't imagine anyone better for this job.Booking with Leigh gets you so much more than a MUA, she is an incredibly kind, warm and generous person who will add so much more to your morning. I'm so grateful to all the other reviews I'd read which suggested so because I couldn't have chosen a better team to set the day up right! Thank you so much. 💕

I cannot recommend Leigh more than enough. From the moment I sent my initial enquiry, through to trial and then my wedding day, her friendly professionalism really made me feel at ease.Leigh was so approachable, knowledgeable and most importantly friendly, giving me advice on styles ahead of the big day etc.Nothing was too much trouble for her and the team during the wedding morning and the build up, it really felt like being with friends when we were getting ready.Most importantly, her work is fantastic, she executed my hair & make up vision perfectly for my bridesmaids and I. We felt like total Queens.Thank you Leigh x

I’m so pleased I managed to book Leigh for our wedding day. From first contact, to the moment we left to go to the venue, she was knowledgable, reassuring and incredibly helpful. I’ve never worn much makeup, and Leigh worked with me really closely to find a look that I absolutely loved on the day. The hair styling was amazing, and stayed in all day and night (with some extreme dancing!) Leigh and Megan are very professional, talented ladies and were a joy to have around during the bridal party prep. Between them, they knocked out 6 make-ups and 5 hairs, and everybody looked outstanding! I would highly recommend MUBYLEIGH to any bride in the North East.

Just want to say a massive thank you to Leigh and Megan for doing the hair and make up on my recent wedding day. They were not only professional but also so friendly, chatty and massively helpful throughout the entire morning, they both honestly made the morning so fun and relaxed.My family and friends all commented on how gorgeous my hair and make up was, neither budged the entire day. My hair completely stayed in place, even after spending hours on the dance floor and my make up was amazing.They both stayed until the minute we all left the room to go to the wedding venue, they helped with absolutely everything... To helping me do my shoes up, fixing a bridesmaid dress and packing bags up. Thank you ladies, you were amazing 💕

I cannot thank Leigh enough for being part of our big day. Leigh was absolutely amazing from our very first point of contact right up until she left me to walk down the aisle feeling a million dollars!I was quite nervous as I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup myself day to day and still wanted to feel like me! Leigh could not have hit the brief anymore perfectly. That soft dewy glow!My hair was also perfect and felt comfortable for the whole day.Both Leigh and Megan on the day itself were brilliant. They really fitted in with myself and the bridesmaids and made everyone feel at ease. All of my bridesmaids were over the moon with their final looks. They looked stunning!Leigh and Megan helped with all of the final touches including my hair accessories and veil, helping us with our bouquets and final touch ups for everyone before heading to the ceremony. I can’t recommend them both enough, please book!Love Amy (Mrs Fawcett!) xxx

Leigh did my hair and makeup for a wedding I was attending. I’m so happy she was available for the rescheduled date! I had a wonderful morning getting ready with Leigh and I loved my hair and makeup. I was amazed how great the makeup was when I had most of the products at home but clearly can’t apply them anywhere near as well as Leigh. As seen in the photos even when I was heading to bed at the end of what was a long day it still looked fab! Thanks and I hope you are available the next time I have a north east based event to attend! X

I cannot thank Leigh and Megan enough for being a part of my wedding in November 2021. Not only was their work flawless but they’re incredibly friendly and we loved having them around to laugh with all morning.There are very few occasions in my life where I’d had someone else do my makeup so I was really anxious when selecting someone not really knowing what to expect. As soon as I turned up at my trial I knew Leigh was the perfect choice. She put me completely at ease, my hair and makeup was immaculate and I left feeling relieved and confident I’d look my best when the big day came.The morning of the wedding Leigh and Megan did hair and make up for myself, my mum, my two bridesmaids and the mother of the groom and we all looked and felt incredible. Intricate updos were sculpted out of short hair- typically unruly hair was tamed into effortless beachy waves and the individual lashes were so natural looking even my mum (who swore she’d never wear lashes) wore them and loved them. These girls have magical powers and I cannot recommend them enough to any bride-to-be.We entered the ceremony looking like the very best versions of ourselves- healthy, glowy and natural. And after a full day of tears, laughter, kissing, eating, drinking and hours of dancing - the makeup remained immaculate and there was not an eyelash or hair out of place.

I couldn’t recommend MubyLeigh more highly!Leigh made the whole process so easy and was such a calming presence. Leigh produced a timetable for the wedding morning, letting everyone know when they were having their hair and makeup done. This was so organised and brilliant!At the trial, a few months before the wedding, Leigh really listened to my ideas and brought them to life in a way that I couldn’t have imagined was possible. We spent the afternoon chatting away, trying out a billion different shades of lipstick (sorry Leigh! 😂) and having cuddles with her gorgeous dog!On the day of the wedding, Leigh was accompanied by her assistant Megan. They both fitted in brilliantly with my wedding party, and were so friendly and welcoming. They helped everyone stay calm and made my bridesmaids, my mum and mother-in-law look so beautiful. Leigh even put some glitter on Mia, my flower girl, who thought it was the most magical thing ever! She’s still talking about it all these months later!I absolutely adored my hair and makeup. Leigh made me feel so beautiful and confident on my wedding day. I honestly couldn’t have imagined anything better and am so glad that I booked.Thank you so much ❤️

MUBYLEIGH did the hair and makeup for myself and my 4 bridesmaids for my wedding in September. I can't recommend them strongly enough. My trial was really chilled, the studio is a lovely setting and Leigh was patient with me whilst we tried some modifications. Not only did they make me feel fantastic, they were a real joy to have around on the morning of the wedding. They were never in the way and always being helpful and a calming influence. They truly went over and beyond, herding wasps, helping with a dress malfunction and even carrying my train through the rain! I'm so pleased I found Leigh, she was one of the best decisions I made about our special day. I really trusted that they would make me and my girls look our best selves - and they really did deliver! Thank you so much for making me feel glam but relaxed, classy but a bit boho and just genuinely the best version of Me. So lovely to have had you both as part of our day :)

Thank you Leigh for doing my make-up and styling my hair for my wedding day. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish and I was getting compliments all day. Megan was also brilliant at doing the make-up for the girls and they all loved the results and the photographs that were taken on the day. The make up lasted all day and still looked fantastic at the end of the evening. They were both very professional, organised and really accommodating. Leigh also helped me find my bouquet of flowers, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend both her and Megan in the future to anyone that needs make-up services.

Last month myself and my bridesmaids had the pleasure of Leigh and Megan making us look beautiful for my wedding. My whole experience with them from my initial enquiry to the day of my wedding was fantastic - the perfect balance of friendly and professional.On the lead up to my wedding day Leigh always got back to any of my questions very quickly, and was extremely helpful in giving tips on how to prepare for my trial and big day.At my makeup trial Leigh listened carefully to what hairstyle and makeup I was looking for and created my perfect wedding day look. She was so welcoming, friendly and easy to talk to.On the day of my wedding Leigh and Megan arrived right on time. They got on with myself and my bridesmaids so well, nothing felt forced and everyone commented on how lovely they were. Their calm and cool demeanor is exactly what you need just hours before you walk down the aisle. Our hair and makeup looked amazing and lasted all day.Aside from the fantastic hair and makeup, the best thing about having them there was the support they gave in the final hour before I walked down the aisle. Rather than packing up and leaving once our looks were completed, they stayed and helped us move our bags over to the bridal suite; they also helped me with final touches such as jewellery and fitting my veil.I can't express how grateful I am for all their support, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!Thanks so much girls!Emma xx

Now where to start! Leigh and Megan worked together for hair styling and makeup for my wedding - a bride and 4 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. The talent between them was phenomenal as well as their time management and professionalism. During the course of the morning it just felt like having 2 more members of a girl squad! It felt as if we’d all know one another for years! The makeup was absolute perfection and they listened to what each persons preference was in terms of the cover, the finish and the overall look that we were going for. The artistry that went into the hair was amazing! It was so different for each of us, different colours, hair lengths, hair up, hair down.. Leigh absolutely nailed it! Once we were in our dresses and all ready we just couldn’t believe how well all of the looks came together or how good we all looked! On many occasions looking in the mirror we all just said to each other wow! They went over and beyond and helped out with all kinds of bits and bobs in the morning too! As a bride it was honestly the best experience, at one point Leigh was doing my lipstick and she asked are you ok, your lips quivering, I burst out laughing and said yeah it’s because I’m trying not to smile! That pretty much sums it all up - we couldn’t wipe the smiles from our faces! Thank you for making the morning of my wedding day perfect and beyond! X

I couldn't have asked for a better hair and makeup artist for my wedding, Leigh and the Megans were fantastic on the day and had a very early start, they did bride, bridesmaids, mums and aunties hair and makeup and we all looked stunning. They are such professionals and fitted in perfectly on the wedding morning and added to such a lovely, calm atmosphere. Leigh was so kind and helpful from the first message, I can't recommend enough! 💕

I can't recommend Leigh enough for wedding hair and make up, she's incredible!I absolutely loved the beautiful boho style she created for my hair which lasted perfectly and looks fab in all the photos. Before my trial I was a bit nervous about having my make up done (as when I've had it done by make up artists previously it's been too much for me), but Leigh's style is spot on and she listened to what I liked and didn't like. My make up lasted amazingly well for the 12 hours of my wedding day and I got so many compliments. Couldn’t be happier with it! :)Lastly I just want to say how lovely Leigh is to work with- she's organised, professional, kind and calm and when I was feeling nervous on the morning of the wedding she was amazing at keeping me calm and distracted. Leigh was also fab with my little 4yr old bridesmaid, chatting to her and making her feel special.Definitely go ahead and book Leigh for your big day! :)

I am so happy Leigh was available for our wedding, she was incredible and I could not recommend her enough to anyone looking for an amazing make -up artist. I don't wear much make- up and was a little nervous for the trial but Leigh was so friendly and soon put me at ease. Her make- up looked amazing and I was so excited for her to recreate the look and do the make-up for my bridesmaids on the day! Leigh kept us all calm on the morning and it was such a treat for us all to have our make up done. Everyone was so happy with it and the eyelashes were a big hit! Thank you so much Leigh ❤

Lovely Leigh was incredible from start to finish. She was incredibly approachable and professional when initially emailing and finding out about her services (and so patient when I messed up the numbers of girls who wanted to get their hair done!). During the trial, she was so approachable, friendly and just an all round lovely person to be around! If you're lucky, Ruby (best dog in NE) will sit on your lap and chill with you while Leigh makes you beautiful. She was so reassuring the whole time and really listened to what you wanted while making really helpful suggestions. On the big day, she and her lovely friend Megan arrived super early so all my bridesmaids could get their hair and make up done too. All of my friends LOVED their beautiful hair and makeup and I know I did too.If you are looking for an incredibly talented, professional, kind, patient and approachable hair and make up artist, please do not look any further.

The whole process from the trial to the wedding day was seamless and stress free. The morning of the wedding was so well organised and she even managed to fix my shoes to stop them falling off!

I booked Leigh to do mine and my bridesmaid hair and make up. From booking through to the big day Leigh was so helpful and professional. She made sure to check in during Covid and was flexible to rearrange to our new date and venue.On the day Leigh was an absolute super star she made both my sister and I feel at ease and we were SO happy with out hair and makeup - she was there until I walked down the aisle making sure we looked perfect and providing suncream which we all forgot!She went above and beyond and helped with my little girl whilst we got dressed, making her feel like a little princess (she is still asking for sparkles to be put on haha).I really can't thank her enough and would highly recommend her to any brides to be!

I was lucky enough to book Leigh for my wedding. From start to finish the whole experience was amazing. The communication around covid lockdowns and rearranging was simple and efficient. My trial went lovely, Leigh made me feel like a supermodel. Not only that she also went into the little details getting to know me and what I liked. It was clear to see that Leigh took the her responsibilities as a covid secure make up artist seriously also taking appropriate precautions. My little girl who has SEN felt at home with Leigh, even if she did play the same song very high pitched 200x on the morning of the wedding!! Absolutely everyone on the day commented on how amazing my hair and make up looked and I really can't thank her enough. I was dreading photos as I'm not very photogenic but with Leigh's hair and make up I looked and felt amazing!

I never liked having my makeup done before having Leigh do it. She is amazing! You’re made to feel the best version of yourself while still feeling like your not caked in makeup. Her light, natural makeup along with her stunning hair styles will have you feeling like the most beautiful bride on your wedding day. I won’t go to anyone else after using Leigh.

Leigh was an absolute joy to work with. She was professional and friendly at all times even with so much uncertainty surrounding our lockdown wedding. I was able to send her hair and makeup ideas I found on instagram etc which she was very receptive to. She 100% got the look I was going for an carried it out perfectly. I wanted a very natural look and she carried this out so well.She is incredibly talented, my makeup was flawless (I will never be able to re-create those brows as long as I live) and she was able to change up my hair style at super short notice. My curls managed to survive a photoshoot in the freezing rain with no umbrella which is really testament to how good she is! I think Leigh is ideal for brides who know exactly what they want as she will work with you to create your perfect look, as well as brides who are happy to let the hair and makeup artist take control as she is super talented and really knows how to make you look gorgeous.She was very flexible and accommodating with my ever changing wedding date and despite obviously going through a really tough time herself this year as a wedding supplier, she was so lovely and sympathetic when my wedding was postponed multiple times. I thoroughly recommend her.

I contracted Leigh to do my hair and makeup for my microwedding on 23rd October 2020 in Newcastle. Her hairstyling is off the charts. Leigh is so sweet and considerate of looks I wanted - while delivering her own classic subtle style to the look. I couldn't have picked a better person to do my wedding look. It was perfect!

Leigh did my hair and make up for my wedding last weekend. From the first contact she was professional, ensuring that all the COVID guidelines were followed and making me feel completely safe and at ease. I don't usually wear a lot of make up and so the trial was really helpful in seeing what suited me and what would work on the day, her home studio is also beautiful! In the middle of working full time, moving house and planning a wedding in a pandemic, the trial was the most relaxed I had felt in weeks which was perfect.On the wedding morning and due to COVID, there was only me and my maid of honour getting ready together. Leigh fitted right in, she was able to do my maid of honours hair at short notice and also was so much fun to be around on the morning of the wedding. She stayed around until we were ready to leave, helping with finishing touches, chatting to the photographer and even helping us with our bags. The hair and make up was exactly how I wanted it, lasted all day and received so many compliments.I really could not recommend her enough!

Leigh did both my bridesmaid's and my hair and make up for my wedding and I was so happy with the outcome! She's so nice and friendly and more importantly, she listened to what I wanted at the trial and it couldn't have been more perfect on the day! Definitely would recommend her.

Leigh was exceptional in every aspect. She was very professional from the day I contacted her, while also being very friendly and supportive, both before and on the day. I am so glad I chose her and would definitely call her again if I needed my makeup done for an event. She was very flexible and was very accommodating despite one girl not speaking any English. I would definitely recommend her! Thank you Leigh! :)

Last Saturday was one the biggest days of my life and I really have to thank Leigh for how amazing my hair and make up looked on my wedding day! Leigh is amazing at what she does, listening to what I wanted and transforming my idea into real life. I wouldn’t have had the look I had in my head with out her. From start to finish Leigh was there whenever I needed to query something or ask for advice. On the morning of my wedding Leigh was part of the bridal tribe she has such a calming influence and such a lovely person to be around. Me, my bridesmaids, flower girl and mums all looked incredible! She didn’t stop there when we was all ready she ensured finishing touches were done and didn’t let us go until we were perfect! I can’t thank her enough and I would highly recommend you book in with Leigh for any event!!!! Leigh you are amazing and deserve the highest praise ♥️♥️♥️

I really can’t thank Leigh enough for the hair and makeup she did for me for a black tie event recently. I’d searched online and came across some really good reviews about her work and was definitely not disappointed! She really listened to exactly what I wanted. Both hair and makeup lasted so well and I wouldn’t think twice about booking Leigh for any future events. Friendly, knowledgable and amazing at what she does. Thanks Leigh! :)

Leigh did my makeup for a party a while ago. I don't usually wear much (any!) makeup, so can feel uncomfortable having my makeup done professionally and worry about overdoing it. I loved the look Leigh created and would definitely ask her to do my makeup again. I would also recommend checking her Instagram and Facebook pages for makeup and hair inspiration, as all the photos are gorgeous :) x

Wedding 13th September, bride plus 4 bridesmaids. Leigh was absolutely amazing, both on the trial day and the wedding Day. We had the trial day and spoke about what would suit me both makeup and hair, then went through options and decided on a final style which was exactly what I wanted. There was no problems with communications up to the big day. On the wedding day she arrived promptly, set up with an assistant who was brilliant as well. Leigh has the right amount of balance with being professional but relaxed at the same time. She spoke to all my bridal party and really made them feel comfortable. Not a bad word to say at all and only praise from everyone. The final look for both hair and makeup was beautiful. Honestly I would highly recommend her. The wedding morning can be stressful but she did a terrific job and I couldn’t thank her more. Very much recommend.

Leigh did my makeup for prom back in June. I had never had my makeup done before and it was the best experience I could have asked for, she was so lovely, welcoming and the makeup and hair was fantastic and looked stunning. I would definitely recommend her to anybody as she creates natural but flawless looks all round.

I asked Leigh to work with me on a styled wedding photoshoot that I organised, and she went above and beyond in every aspect on the day. Not only did she arrive before me, she got to work straight away and was already effortlessly working to create the perfect bridal look. Leigh also came out on location with us to the Peak District and created a second look, literally in the middle of nowhere in a windswept field when it was 30 degrees!If you're a bride I honestly can't reccomend Leigh enough, she is super friendly, very professional and incredibly talented - exactly the kind of person you need to make your wedding day extra special!I hope we get to work again together soon, as it was an absolute pleasure!

After searching for a Make Up Artist in the area Leigh stood out the most. She was absolutely fantastic and understood my make up needs. It was my first time getting my make up done and it was above and beyond what I ever expected. Certainly made me feel pampered and beautiful for my graduation day! Would highly recommend her for any special occasion. Thank you Leigh!!

Leigh is absolutely amazing I couldn’t recommend her enough! She made my sister and her bridesmaids look absolutely beautiful for her wedding day and we honestly wouldn’t of wanted anyone else to share this experience with us. Leigh is extremely talented and listens to exactly what you want and goes above and beyond to make everything look so perfect. I know who I will be contacting when it’s my wedding day! I honestly cannot thank her enough for everything she has done and not to mention how sweet and lovely she is as a person! We all felt so at ease like we’d known her for such a long time and that’s exactly what you need with all the wedding nerves. Yet again, thank you so so so much Leigh for everything you have done! We love you! xxxxxxx

Leigh was an amazing addition to our wedding day! I had a lovely hair and makeup trial for the engagement shoot that gave me confidence for the big day. Leigh also uses top of the line products that are gentle and natural on the skin with great staying power. On the wedding day Leigh was calm and professional and helped myself and the rest of my wedding party look and feel great x Cannot recommend her enough. Great communication and result from start to finish. Very professional with a lovely nature and talent. Thank you xx

She was very professional and very friendly. I showed her a picture of something I wanted but a more natural version. The end result was amazing and even better than the picture. I looked amazing and got lots of compliments on my makeup. I definitely will be going back in the future. Highly recommend. 💕

Leigh did an amazing job of my make up for a wedding recently. I was delighted with the look, it lasted all day and into the evening and I got lots of compliments. Add to that she gave some tips on how to replicate the look myself.

I have just recently worked with Leigh on a styled shoot. I required neutral makeup and a simple hairstyle to match the simplicity of the shoot. Leigh was absolutely fantastic in creating the look I wanted, 11 out of 10 for all of the work she did. I would highly recommend booking with or working with Leigh, very talented!
