Alexandra did an absolutely fantastic job of the make up for all my bridesmaids, my Mum and I. She had previously done my make up when I was bridesmaid at my sister's wedding, so as soon as I got engaged I knew I couldn't have anyone else do my make up for my big day!
Everybody has their own way they like to do their make up but Alexandra made me feel so comfortable, taking into account how I liked to wear my make up but also encouraging me try new colours and styles. I couldn't have been happier with the result, she made me look flawless yet at the same time still like me! All of the products Alexandra uses are of such high quality it really helped me to feel absolutely fantastic and so confident on the day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alexandra to anybody looking for a make up artist.

"Alexandra made me look and feel beautiful on my wedding day. From our first meeting, she knew exactly what I had in mind as well as what I would suit and it was such a relief on the day not to have to worry about the make up. I loved that she had such a wide range of amazing products too. I would highly recommend her to my friends or anyone getting married in future!"

'Alexandra did the most amazing make up for my bridesmaids, Mum and I. I came across her through a recommendation from a friend and I cannot recommend her services enough. From the initial trial through to the finishing touches she really has a talent for making you feel special but at the same time using natural styles that really reflect your individual complexion. Make up is such a personal choice but Alexandra had the perfect combination of advise whilst ensuring you felt comfortable, and the products used are such high quality I've never turned back and my make up bag has had an overhaul! On the morning of the wedding Alexandra truly was a God send, on hand to calm nerves, pamper you and be an overall asset to the day - I cannot emphasise how much you need this lady!'

"A very professional make up artist with a warming personality, kept my nerves cool on the day. I had full confidence that alexandra would make me look the best and not let me leave till I did. Timing was perfect, with all bridesmaids, mother of the bride and myself. I would recommend her to anyone as a fabulous, friendly, eye for detail make up artist. With Alexandra's background in painting, she has you as a blank canvas, using your wedding theme, ideas, colours and texture to paint the make up shades, paying attention to the details of the lighting of the camera. Thank you for making me feeling amazing on my wedding day!!"

I found Alexandra's website on brides North East after having no luck finding a make up artist that I particularly liked. I was very impressed with the testimonials and her work looked amazing. I contacted Alexandra and she was very quick to get back to me. We arranged a trial for myself and my bridesmaid. Alexandra was so friendly and approachable and she really listened to what I wanted. I don't wear a lot of make up usually and my bridesmaid does not wear it at all so we had initially felt quite intimidated by the thought of having a full face of make up but Alexandra did a fantastic job. She talked us through what she would use and showed me all of the products. She was so professional. I was amazed at how light and natural the make up felt. It didn't feel like I was wearing make up at all. My bridesmaid and I were blown away by how good it looked. Alexandra made me look and feel my best on my wedding day. I felt so confident, polished and photo ready. The make up lasted all day and looked just as fresh by the end of the evening. I would highly recommend Alexandra. Her work really is fantastic.

'I was deliberating whether to get a Make Up Artist because I thought I could do my make up myself, but I'm so glad I chose in the end to go with AJ Edgar. I found her warm, attentive and nature soothing to my nerves. Having a Make Up Artist was fabulously luxurious; all I had to do was sit back and relax. The outcome still has me marvelling, three months on!!! I feel forever indebted; because of AJ Edgar, I looked truly stunning in all of my wedding photos. There's absolutely no way I could have achieved such a flawless yet completely natural look. Booking a talented Make Up Artist is the single most important decision you will make on your wedding day, aside from who you chose as the groom!'

"Alexandra did such a good job of my wedding make up, and also making my Mum and two bridesmaids look fabulous too. I had a trial with another artist and went to a couple of make up counters, but nobody else really seemed to understand what I wanted for my big day. Everyone else was keen to put me in 'tasteful' neutral shades, and most of them also made me look and feel quite unlike myself. She was the only one that used the lovely purple-y colours I really wanted on my eyes, and I still felt like me, only far more polished. It was a real stroke of luck finding her and I would definitely recommend her to other brides."
Margaret McPhee - Berwick Upon Tweed
"I was really delighted with my make-up on my daughter's wedding day - it gave me a great deal of confidence and I've been using elements of it myself since. I
don't think that I've ever looked so good. The colours Alex chose for me for me were gorgeous and were very flattering! I was worried that I might look too 'made up' but the effect was very
Alex's make-up skills also enhanced my daughter and her two bridesmaids, so that they looked even more beautiful!'"
Christine Smollett - Nassau, Bahamas
"I can only say great things about Alexandra's artistic talents to applying make-up. During my daughter's wedding we hired a makeup artist to do the makeup for all the bridesmaids and bride, and Alexandra was one of the bridesmaids. Alexandra offered to do my make-up (the mother-of-the-bride). We ended up being so displeased with the make-up artist's work that Alexandra offered to re-do everyone's makeup. She did a fabulous job and everyone looked beautiful. She literally "saved the day"! I now wish we had hired Alexandra to do the job in the first place."
