Testimonials

Dear Louise, I came to see you and you revolutionised my life!

Louise, After a month of using your beautiful makeup suggestions I wanted to thank you and let you know also what a pleasure it was to met you. I couldn’t be happier with your recommendations. I feel so confident and comfortable in this makeup.

Your make up skills are almost miraculous.

I’ve just had an amazing make-up session with Louise Heywood in her lovely studio in Cooper’s Yard just off the triangle. I look like myself, but MUCH better than usual and her tips are really easy to follow. It was a Christmas present from last year that I kept failing to book, but so glad that I did. Highly recommend this as an idea for a gift or just a total treat for yourself!

I learnt such a lot, and best of all, felt like I looked my real self again by the end of the session. Thank you for giving me back my real face.

Really enjoyed Friday.  Husband took my photo for my 60+ Oyster card and for once I was really happy with the result.  Ironic.
 
Enjoyed the sessions so much. It was just what I needed to embrace my forties face :-) 

Thank you for an enjoyable lesson – I’ve already received compliments on the afternoon school run (and it was “you look pretty today” not “I like your make up!”)

Firstly a huge thank you for doing my hair and make up – I felt absolutely beautiful, as every bride should, and was showered with a ridiculous number of compliments.  You did a wonderful job!

Just had a lovely one to one make up lesson with the wonderful Louise Heywood casting her magic on my face! Louise showed me how to apply make up and then got me to do it, explaining each product and what colours are right for me. Great subtle daytime look, definitely don’t feel caked in make up. Armed with a product list, I’ll no longer feel terrified of the make up counter!

Loved today. was so brilliant. my make up is still on, I’ve even had a little 30 min nap and it still looks good! thanks for all the advice and notes and everything. can’t wait to get started. 

Alyson Walsh’s blog  That’s Not My Age….”I’ve always preferred natural, not-much-makeup-makeup. One thing that pleases me about getting older is that less is more, at last. Though on occasions when I need to impress more than Mr That’s Not My Age and my co-workers, I tend to have my makeup done professionally. For events, book launches and posh nights out (who I am trying to kid), I call upon Louise Heywood a makeup artist I met on a shoot a few years ago, who coincidentally lives near That’s Not My Age Mansions and is a friend of a friend. Small world. Louise’s focus is ‘looking like you but on a really good day’ which is just what I’m after. “

Louise is fantastic! Very professional and her little studio makes you feel very welcome. She made a brilliant everyday make up with the sophistication I was looking for. She has become my makeup guru now!

Louise, I literally do not know how to thank you for how hot I looked on my wedding day!!!

I was lucky enough to have a makeover from Louise and she is fantastic. I’m not a massive make up person and she totally got that and gave me great tips that fit into my lifestyle (i.e. zero time to get ready in the morning)

Thanks again for the make over yesterday – it was a delightful experience from beginning to end and I really like your approach, not a shade of the drag queen, just felt more youthful and well!

I went out in town last night with some very glamorous friends I see occasionally. With my new skills and make up I felt like a million dollars.I’m so pleased with what you’ve shown me Louise, it was just what I was hoping for. It is definitely possible to be fabulous at 50 and beyond!

I wanted to recommend the amazing services of Louise Heywood – I treated myself to a 2 hour make-up session today to help mask the tiredness that life with a toddler and newborn brings, and came away feeling equipped with the know-how and products that will help make me look (and therefore feel) ready to face the world during mat leave. The studio is a little oasis in the heart of the Triangle and it was a real treat having a few hours escapism. Thanks, Louise!

The 10 minute commuter’s make-up routine is going well. I feel more confident knowing that no matter how little sleep I have had or if I have a random toddler stain on my clothes, I still look professional. Thank you.

Louise has an instinctive talent at creating a look that is natural, but makes you feel really beautiful. On my wedding day I didn’t want make-up that was too severe, just a ‘little bit more than normal’ – Louise completely got this. She also has an inherent ability to stay cool and calm in what can be quite a frantic time, moments before walking down the aisle! I would recommend Louise, without hesitation

Worth every penny!

I really enjoyed my session with Louise. She is lovely and makes you feel instantly at ease and not self conscious. It felt a bit indulgent to book a make up lesson but actually I probably saved a lot of money (and time!)  by  learning what product work for me and how to apply them. I now have a very compact make up bag and don’t feel compulsed to buy anything else. And I know what to do for a quick and efficient fix without feeling baked. It gave me a lot of confidence and a boost and I know what to get for my friend’s big birthdays from now!

Can’t begin to tell you how fantastic you were and how much fun it was getting ready that morning… You really nailed my hair and make up.

 I spent a lovely afternoon in Lousie’s studio at Coopers Yard with my sister in law. We booked a 2 hour lesson and I finally realised how to do smoky eyes and what products suited by skin tone and face. She gave me some excellent tips and sent me off to my engagement party looking hot to trot. What was brilliant was walking away with new ideas an skills and a list of products which I have used ever since. Thank you Louise

Louise made me feel just right for my Christmas party last year. I am a non-make-up-wearer & felt she understood that so I felt like me… but just less wrecked…! Louise is lovely & talented.

I used Louise for a Fox Searchlight event and she was superb! I will definitely use her again and recommend her to friends and colleagues!

I would highly recommend Louise. She did my make-up for my 40th and I felt like a million dollars…which doesn’t happen often!

I cannot thank Louise enough for her inspired artistry. I had a one-to-one lesson with her first and I was delighted with the result. She had an instinctive understanding of the sort of look I wanted and was, at the same time, able to show me some completely new ways to enhance my appearance. I felt and looked wonderful, with a natural look. She gave me the confidence to use the techniques she had shown me later on. I booked a bridal makeup after that first session, confident that she would be able to repeat the performance. I am very happy indeed to report that the result was truly amazing (and that’s not my opinion but observed by many of our guests.) I looked stunning and felt like the proverbial million dollars! Many thanks Louise for a fantastic boost to the happiest day of my life!
