WEDDING TESTIMONIAL – 30 November, 2013.

“I recently used Road to Beauty for my bridesmaids and my wedding make up. From the start, Deirdre was the height of professionalism and a delight to work with. Given I am someone that doesn’t wear a lot make-up and don’t know much about it Deirdre took the time to get to know me and what I was wanting to achieve with my wedding right from venue, hair, flowers and dresses. She was able to make some hair and make-up suggestions that I would not have thought of and I’m very grateful for her expertise and support. The make-up used during both the trial and wedding day was fantastic and stayed on right throughout the night with no touch-ups needed for any of us. I would not hesitate to recommend Deirdre to anyone wanting a knowledgable and friendly make-up artist” – LUCINDA HOGAN
