Wedding Makeup Testimonials

Hi Susan!

I was one of the bridesmaids at Vanessa's wedding that you did last weekend. I also work in the bridal/fashion industry and I wanted to commend you on your work.

All of our makeup remained flawless the entire day and night, and we walked the city for hours to perform all sorts of photos in sweltering heat! My makeup did not budge! I wore lashes, which I have worn before, and had a terrible experience where they started to peel throughout the ceremony, ( not to mention they ripped out most of my lashes when I went to take them off!)

But the lashes you used were absolutely amazing! Vanessa told me to trust you, and I am so pleased I did! The whole makeup and lash experience was the best, I've never felt my makeup so lightweight and flawless, so thank you! You are a true artist, and I cannot commend you high enough!

I will be recommending you to everyone I know!

Many thanks to you for your fun loving, yet professional personality. We need more make up artists like you.


AMAZING! You must hire this team, their experience, knowledge and talent will blow you away. They made my day even more incredible and exciting. Fantastic ladies that are not only superb makeup artists and hair stylists but wonderful people that you will have a blast with. 10 out of 10!!!!


Susan and Elle did such a fabulous job on my wedding day. I was so relaxed that morning and it had a lot to do with my confidence in her. She was both professional and friendly and listened to what I wanted to achieve with my look on the day. Using the very best make-up ensured my make-up stayed flawless all day. In addition all my bridesmaids hair and makeup looked great and she accentuated their best features. I can't thank her and her team enough!


I went through 8 trials before finding Susan and her hairstylist and they were worth the wait and the money spent. She did a fantastic job on me and the girls, they looked fantastic and she made me feel gorgeous. I wasn’t so happy with my dress but because she did such a great job it didn’t bother me anymore. Also, the atmosphere that she created on the day was so much fun which relaxed us all and that was so important. I highly recommend Susan and her girls, I have referred my friends that are getting married to her and they have booked her and I have had friends that have tried to but she has been booked out and that just proves how fantastic she is.


I have been using the services of Make-up Mode since 2001 and can honestly say that Susan is the absolute BEST in the industry. On my Wedding Day, she produced beautifully flawless make-up for me which also lasted all day. She is AMAZING! I highly recommend Susan and Makeup Mode.


Susan and the team at makeup mode are exceptionally skilled in makeup artistry. Susan knew exactly how to bring out my best features. Not only did she do an amazing job on my makeup for my wedding but she was also a fantastic help on calming my pre-wedding jitters!

The hairstylist did an incredible job on my hair, she knew exactly how to create what i wanted. My hairstyle was stunning, and so were my beautiful bridesmaids.

Susan, Liana and the team at makeup mode are professional, punctual, trust worthy and knew exactly how to make me and my bridal party look exceptional on my wedding day. They were great fun to work with and I am so grateful to them for making me look so breathtaking on my special day.

I just wanted to thankyou for the make up you did on my wedding day. People commented all day long on how beautiful the make up was and how natural it looked – even a make up artist that was there commented how great it was. Not only did it feel light but it lasted all night long I mean the eyelashes stayed on soo long I even had one fall off in the pool whilst on honeymoon haha.

You can guarantee you will hear from me whenever I need that special touch and I have already told heaps of people about you…

Kind Regards

Dear Sue,

Just wanted to send a quick thank you for all of your hard work on my wedding day. Everybody looked absolutely beautiful and I didn't come out too bad either. It was great to have you there. I'll recommend your services wherever I can.

I'll be sure to send you some photo's when I get them.

Thanks again Sue.
You did a beautiful job.

Love Kate

Good morning Susan,
I had my trial with you on Saturday afternoon; it was so nice to meet you, your fun personality will certainly make the morning of my wedding a lovely experience.

Just wanted to thank you again, the make up was great, overall I was very happy with trial and the end result. It was a shame I had to take it off at the end of the night. I will be doing the deposit for you tonight and will email you all the requested details after I have done so.


HI Susan,

I just want to say thank you for doing a fantastic job of my bridal make up for my wedding. It was great and i got many compliments about my make up during the whole day.

I'm glad Lily recommended you to me and i'm well definitely be recommended you to all of my other friends.

Now i understand why all of Sunny's cousins use you as their bridal make up artist. Thank you so much.


I just wanted to drop you a short note to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and especially to Elli and Lee for providing such an incredible hair and makeup service for my wedding. I was so incredibly pleased with the result on the day - I felt like a princess and everyone is still telling me how beautiful I looked and what a fantastic job the girls did!! Please make sure you pass on my regards to them. Everything they did was amazing - they were professional, friendly and got the job done with minimum fuss.

Everyone who was at my parent's place on the morning of the wedding said how lovely they were and what a wonderful job they did. I will most definitely be recommending Makeup Mode to anyone who needs a hair and makeup service for their wedding - thanks again for everything!!

Cheers, and all the best.

Hi Susan,

Last March, Elli did the make up for my wedding. In October, she did the make up for my sister in law’s wedding. Last weekend, Elli did the make up for my friend’s wedding – I was a bridesmaid for this one.

It was really lovely to see Elli again. And I have to say all of the girls are really impressed with her. Not only is her work beautiful, but she has a lovely personality and helps to make everyone feel really comfortable.

I believe a family friend will also be requesting Elli’s services, so really I think actions speak louder than words!

Please pass my thanks on to Elli.


Hi Susan,
You recently did the makeup for my wedding on October 18 - making up myself, 3 bridesmaids and my mum.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did!! I was thrilled with the finished looks of everyone, and your calm and happy manner was so appreciated on the day. A wedding day can be stressful - ( and extremely exciting!!), however, you made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Your professionalism was wonderful.

We had many compliments on everyone's makeup and I am truly grateful for your fabulous work. The girls all felt pampered and gorgeous, and they looked wonderful!!

Thank you so much for being a part of my special day and making me look and feel beautiful! I will definately be recommending you!

All the best,
Alana Borck (nee Milojevich)
