Make up and Lifestyle by Mandie

            Reviews    &   Testimonials


“Mandie is such a kind spirit! She was encouraging, kind hearted and made me feel right at home from my first consultation. I came in with a few bridal makeup ideas but wasn’t quite sure what would suit me for my wedding day, while feeling like myself. She helped me narrow down a final “look” by showing me different eyeshadow options and styles to find exactly what I was looking for. Then she started working her magic! We chatted through the makeup process and she made me feel super comfortable and confident that I would love the end result and I did!

From beginning to end she was honest and caring about the whole makeup process which left me feeling beautiful and thankful. It was so great leaving my trial knowing I had chosen the right makeup artist that I could trust on my wedding day. She was so accommodating with times and also fitting in my other bridesmaids. I am so thankful for Mandie and her expertise and passion for makeup! I would highly recommend Mandie to any brides or bridal parties looking for a talented and kindhearted woman to make their makeup experience such a breeze!”


“Mandie did an amazing job with my wedding makeup! I don’t wear makeup much and did not know how to describe what I was looking for. I sent pictures, we did a trial and we talked about different looks. The end result: I felt truly fantastic!

Mandie also made me comfortable and listened to my concerns. I have allergies and she looked into the products she had to make sure that they were safe for me. This attention to detail put me at ease and made a potentially stressful day a little bit smoother, and much more glamorous!”



“Mandie did my makeup for a friend’s wedding that I was a bridesmaid in and it was perfect! I was so happy with the way she was able to translate exactly what I wanted without giving her much direction at all. It looked natural while still standing out enough and lasted all day. After getting my makeup done one of the other bridesmaids that wasn’t planning on getting hers done was convinced to get hers done as well, not to mention the bride looked absolutely amazing! Got lots of compliments on how beautiful the makeup was. Mandie was a gem to work with, her calm demeanour on what can be a stressful day was much appreciated! Would highly recommend.”



“Mandie did an absolutely amazing and professional job doing makeup for myself, my bridesmaids and my Mum for my wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend her makeup services.

I got SO many compliments on my makeup the day of, from family, guests and my photographer! Throughout the day, I barely felt like I was wearing makeup. My face wasn't cakey or flaky at all!

Mandie was very attentive to my sensitive skin, and made sure the products she used didn't irritate my face. (Nothing worse than an itchy face for your wedding!) She was so kind and considerate to my needs.

Mandie has a calming and down to earth presence which made getting ready for the big day peaceful and stress-free”



“I was very lucky that Mandie agreed to do my makeup last minute and it was perfect. I get insecure about doing my makeup, especially for weddings and Mandie’s work made such a difference.

It was so much fun in the process, I felt comfortable, taken care of and that I could trust she was taking pride in what she was doing.

And also during the wedding, as a bridesmaid I had an extra dose of confidence and peace as I walked down the aisle.

It’s such a treat to experience Dear Darling”


“I am very happy that I chose to have Mandie do my makeup for my wedding last year, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist. I wanted my makeup to feel and appear natural so I could be comfortable, as well as to be confident that it would look good for the entire day. She did a great job helping me to feel at ease, and I was very happy with the way it turned out.”


“Mandie is a genuine person with a natural talent for makeup! She truly is an artist and will make you glow for any occasion. I would highly recommend her as a new up-and-coming makeup specialist for events, and especially if it’s your big day. Book a trial and watch her work her magic!”


“If you are looking for a makeup artist that is talented, kind and attentive to your wishes and needs, Mandie is a great option! Mandie was hired as the makeup artist for my sister’s wedding, where she was able to do a full bridal face, and four bridesmaids in three hours time. Mandie made sure that we were comfortable and checked in with us multiple times as she was applying the makeup to ensure that she was heading in a direction that we would be happy with. Not only was Mandie efficient, each of the girls was more than happy with her work and her interactions with us during the time she spent with us.

Personally, I really appreciated how Mandie asked us about what our ‘normal’ makeup routine was and worked within some specific wishes. I have been involved in a number of weddings where bridal parties have had makeup and hair done, and I am happy to say that Mandie is not only professional and great at what she does, but she also adds so much joy and excitement to an already special morning!”



“Mandie did my makeup for one of my best friend’s weddings this past summer. She was originally only booked for the bride and maid of honour. Luckily we had extra time and she was able to fit me in. Our makeup looked stunning and it lasted all day! Mandie is very professional and creates a fun and relaxing environment. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to have their makeup done for an event/wedding.”



“She did my makeup for a friends wedding - plain and simple mature lady and she made me look wonderful - always professional and willing do what's best for you with a smile and for any occasion.”
