I love going to Oxford circus Topshop! It's so amazing the amount of jewellery, handbags & clothes that are packed into one store, everything a girl would wish for.

I always look at the mannequins, the hair and makeup is always so inspiring. Here's a photo of the last time I was in there of the mannequins on the ground floor, this makes me want to do a shoot using lots of colour!!! Inspiration

A few years ago I also took this photo of a mannequin in the window of Topshop, I loved this hair so much I recreated a style like this on a photoshoot.

Inspiration comes from everywhere for me, some times it can even just be a colour, pattern or texture of a surface.

Be inspired by your surroundings and get creative.

Testimonials From Recent Bridal Clients

Here are some of the lovely kind comments from recent bridal clients who voted for me in The 2012 Wedding Industry Awards, I have been touched when reading the comments made by my bridal clients, so I thought I would share some of them with you. Thank you again to every bride that voted


Chloe made my wedding experience wonderful. She really took the time to get to know me as a person and understand my personality and preferences. She made me feel like every bride would want to - special and cared for. Her calm and professional approach made me feel totally at ease and made the whole experience a complete pleasure. From my initial contact with Chloe she was responsive, professional and made me feel confident in her abilities, On my wedding day I felt a million dollars - everyone commented on how fantastic my make-up looked. I'm over the moon with how I look on my photographs (which is very unusual as I usually can't stand to look at photos of me! :-) and can't speak highly enough of Chloe.

Chloe was very friendly and professional, and she has alot of experience which means alot when you need a make up artist for the most important day of your life! She advised me which make up and technique was best for me and I still go by her advice now. Chloe was so good and I had so many compliments that my sister has booked her for her wedding in 18 months time, as bridesmaid I will be having Chloe to do my make up aswell.

She had me feel at ease during the trial and on the wedding day. She definitely knows what she is talking, very approachable and good value for money.

chloe is absolutely fantastic - her skill and ability as a make up artist are fantastic. i have never had my make up done before so it was a very big decision to a. have someone do my make up and b. trust and rely on her on the biggest day of my life, after one trial with her (on the morning of my hen do) i knew she was brilliant and that i wanted and trusted her to be responsible for the way i looked on my wedding day. her air brushing foundation was perfect - and every photo i look at i think wow - is that really me!? as a result. chloe listened to what i liked - i wasn't confident with dark eyebrows and anything more than natural tried the darker options and although would have looked brilliant i wasnt sure i could carry it off - so she came up with solutions that i felt comfortable with and, although i am nothing to write home about normally - looked amazing - i can not tell you how much confidence my make up gave me as a result of chloe - i am not the type of person to say this but - i think i looked amazing, my skin glowed, i partied, cried, partied and partied some more on a cold snowy winters day and my make up still looked fantastic the next day. chloe thank you so so much - to think i was scared of having my make up done - how silly! chloe is simply brilliant. ps on the day she was the one who calmed me down, made my bridesmaids look radiant even though i hadnt booked them in...... and was even seen to cover up my 21 year old brothers spot up!! chloes character and personality was an essential part of my wedding morning!

chloes work is outstanding: she is professional and helps to put her clients at ease on the wedding day. i was amazed with how my make up looked, it also looked great on the photos, i cannot recommend chloe enough, shes great and deserves success!

I first contacted her by phone, she has a very good phone manner and came across as very organised and accomodating. During my trail she was patient and willing to try many different colours etc until I was truley happy. I never felt rushed and felt really comfortable in asking questions and advice about my everyday makeup. On my wedding day, she had rang a few weeks previously to check I was still happy, she was on time, calm, proffessional, followed the deatail notes she had previously taken, and my makeup looked out of this world! It lasted all day as she had promised.

Chloe is totally amazing - talented and listens to what you actually want, her aim is to make you happy. My make up lasted ALL day on both my trial and wedding day, no one else locally offers spray foundation that is perfectly matched to my skin tone, my pregnancy exema cannot be seen on any photos!!!! My bridesmaids were blown away by how fabulous their make up was too. It was a very chilled out morning without any stress - what every bride wants and needs!

Chloe was very thoughtful and understood exeactly what myself and my Mum wanted for our make up, and the delivery was fantastic. We both had a lot of comments on the day as too how good the make up was and we would definately recommend her services.

Chloe was the most amazing make up artist. She arrived promptly on the day and i would reccommend her to all my friends. The products she used on my skin were amazing, i did not feel like i had make up on even though i did. It was very good value for money and of high quality. She came to the hotel room with a special chair too and i felt like a model. I had a lot of comments about my make up

Chloe is helpful, professional and excellent value for money.

Chloe gave an excellent service. With pre-wedding consultation and practice. She was Brilliant on the day. She set up whilst I was at the hairdressers and was ready to go as soon as I was back home. She was understanding and aware of my needs on the day and most of all did a great job. I got loads of comments on my make-up on the day.

Chloe is a fantastic make-up artist. She is highly professional and has a wide knowledge of different beauty products. Highly recommend to have a consultation with Chloe.

Chloe was very professional and the products used were all of a high quality. Chloe used some great techniques and even gave me some hints and tips. Many of my guests commented on my make up on my big day and it lasted for the whole day! I would definately recommend Chloe for anyone considering to have their make up done professionally!

Would have scored 100 if possible. She went totally beyond the call of duty on my big day. She rescued my wedding dress after it got covered in my sister's makeup and radiator oil (long story!) and even drove my auntie's to my nan's house to catch the taxi to our wedding because they were running late. The makeup was fabulous to say the least. Made-up but yet natural looking, which looks fantastic on our wedding photos. I really couldn't recommend her enough.

Chloe was fantastic on the day of my wedding, the make up which she did for my two bridesmaids and I was fantastic. So many people commented on how lovely it was and I have already recommended her to a number of people. A true professional and I would use her again, if I had a special event to attend.

Chloe was very professional and reliable. She was very punctual on the day and made me feel very relaxed. The makeup was superb and I was very pleased with the way it looked. I would definately recommend her to anybody looking for a makeup artist for a special occasion.
