Kind Words

I met Stephanie on a photoshoot with my dear friend Christophe Cohen, whom I have known for many years and who has taken some amazing photos of me.

I trusted Christophe so much I knew that Stephanie would be really good and boy was he right, when you are in your 70’s you don’t want to overdo the hair and make up, and I have to say she made me look lovely. I also learnt quite a lot from her in the process.

I didn’t know what to expect from having my make up professionally done, but it was one of the most relaxing experiences ever – which is really important on your wedding day! We experimented with a couple of looks during the trial session and Stephanie explained what would work for me in terms of general skin care and everyday make up. On the big day, I had the BIGGEST break out of blemishes and spots that I’ve ever experienced (thanks skin), but Stephanie worked her magic and the overall effect was flawless!

Really enjoyed the makeup workshop I attended recently with Stephanie from C’est Magnifique. Stephanie explained the different makeup application techniques really well and used top quality products to demonstrate the different effects you can achieve when applying makeup. I thoroughly recommend using her services as she is delightful to work with. I look forward to attending another event soon!

Stephanie was very professional and skillful, with a great eye for colour. I feel like I have been reintroduced to the world of make up!

Stéphanie came to our house in London to give a 1 to 1 lesson for our teenage daughter. Stephanie took the time to go over the main techniques of make up application and she was spot on striking the right balance of make up for a teen –  teaching our daughter to achieve a look that is fresh and natural without covering up her youth. I was concerned of too much make up for young people who get their make up ideas from celebrities on social media. Stephanie showed us a fresh ‘French’ style look that exudes inner confidence and doesn’t hide the young person behind a ‘painted’ face. I can’t recommend Stephanie enough!   T. Park, London
All the best Stephanie!

I was lucky enough to receive a makeup lesson with Stephanie as a birthday present. I didn’t have a lot of confidence in applying makeup as I don’t need to wear it for work. She showed me how to make use of the makeup that I already had. Stephanie was full of great advice and tips. I found that the 2hours flew by and I had regained my confidence to apply and experiment with makeup. I would highly recommend a makeup lesson with Stephanie. I may even book another one myself in the near future.

Barbara - February 2018 - London

I haven’t worn make-up for around 25 years, so it was lovely to have Stephanie come to the comfort of my house for a private make-up lesson. She was wonderful at explaining everything and left useful notes so I don’t forget! She completely understood what I was looking for and what works best for me. Thank you so much!

Josie - January 2018 - Brighton

Having never quite known what I was doing with make-up, a lesson with Stephanie was brilliant! I gained the confidence and skills to use my make-up to its best effect, and haven’t looked back since. Thank you!

Kay - January 2018 - London

Dear Stephanie, thank you so much!! My makeup was amazing!!! The evening was a success too. Lots of love

Carol - November 2017 - London

Stephanie, A big Thank you for yesterday. You worked wonders with my sister and I!!! It was an incredibly special day for our family and it was so lovely to feel our best! We went out that evening, and I still had your makeup on from 6.30am, thank you!

Alexia - November 2017 - Chelsea

Stephanie is a fantastic make up artist and teacher. I booked a private session with her and she taught me amazing tips for everyday natural look make up and also for my stage performances. Reliable and professional I will book her again in near future.

Stephanie was recommended to me and she did not disappoint. She is a talented makeup artist and her presence on the morning of my wedding was both calming and great fun. Stephanie did my makeup and that of my mother, sister and sister-in-law. We were all thrilled with her work and received many compliments throughout the wonderful and memorable day. Stephanie’s manner was thoroughly complimentary to such an important and special occasion. I have no hesitation in recommending her services. Corinne, July 2017. 

Corinne Bramwell - July 2017 - London

Dearest Super Stephanie, I just wanted to say a huge Thank You for being so patient with me and secondly for making my Makeup Lesson such fun! No one else has the patience to deal with me and my complete ignorance on trying to be a girl!!

Huge hugs and a thousand Thank yous for making me always look 100 times better than normal self!!

Lots of love, See you soon.

My sister and I had a two-hour make-up class with Stephanie and we both loved it.  My make-up knowledge before the class was extremely limited and for that reason I did not really wear a lot of make-up.  Stephanie explained all the steps of applying make-up, starting from the very basics which I needed and even provided some helpful notes to act as a reminder!  She advised on the correct techniques, best brushes to use and took us through a day-time look to a night-time look.  Stephanie started with the make-up that we were already using, which was great and only advised alternative products if she felt it was really necessary.   Above all of that, Stephanie is extremely friendly, professional and made us feel at ease right from the start.   I feel so much more confident in using makeup and experimenting with it – thank you Stephanie!

Stephanie, I just wanted to write and thank you for doing the most beautiful makeup for my bridesmaids, aunts and me. My mother thought everyone looked stunning and they really did. You were so sweet to come all the way to somerset. You actually did my Makeup for Halloween in 2011 the day Alex and I started going out, so it was really fitting that you did the Makeup for the wedding. With very best wishes,

I found Stephanie a wonderful, caring, and warm person who took the time to listen to what I needed. We achieved a look which was exactly as I had hoped, the make-up felt great (not too heavy) and lasted a long time even in hot weather. I have come across quite a few make-up artists over the years for photo shoots and special occasions, and Stephanie has been one of the best. She is extremely talented with a lovely personality and she gave my day a lot of positive energy!

Ying Li - June 2015 - London

I was so nervous about my very first photo shoot but not only did you make me look my very best with the minimum of makeup, you also left me feeling very relaxed and confident. I really appreciate all the advice and tips you gave me to achieve a natural, fresh-faced look suitable for my age. A huge thank you and hope to see you again
really soon!

Katie Bryson (16yrs old) - July 2015 - London

I have just seen the photos. I am thrilled. You have made me look radiant! My sincerest thanks- the makeup is immaculate!! I look forward to seeing you soon. My eyebrows rock! (ha ha!). Thank you for doing exactly the right combination of natural and glamour for me- you really got it right and seemed to understand what I wanted without me actually saying.

Stephanie was a fantastic presence on my wedding morning – quiet, professional and calm but also really good fun. She listened to everything that my bridesmaids and I said, giving real consideration to all of our suggestions and creating the looks we wanted perfectly. On such an important day it makes a huge difference knowing your makeup has been done by someone so talented. I’m just looking for an excuse to use her services again now!

Saira Morgan - August 2013 - London

I am a professional dancer and hired Stephanie to do my makeup for a photoshoot. I am so glad I found her! Her professionalism was top notch and worth every penny. She accommodated my crazy schedule for the day with ease and was very pleasant to work with. Friendly, extremely knowledgeable and she checked in with me throughout the whole process to be sure I was happy. The end result was stunning and I’ve never had so many compliments before. I would definitely work with C’est Magnifique Again!

 

Razia Star - Feb 2013 and Sept 2014 - London

Hi Stephanie, we were delighted with how everything went. Thanks so much, hope to have an opportunity to use your services again at some point in the future.

Carol. S - Nov 2012 - London

I would like to thank you ever so kindly for the AMAZING job you have done with my make up on the occasion of my son’s Bar Mitzvah. It was professional and meticulously made and stayed on beautifully for as long as I did!

I couldn’t have hoped for any better. Stephanie is a real professional make up artist with the ability to listen to her clients and deliver much more than asked.

I was extremely pleased and couldn’t have chosen any better. If your event matters it is well worthwhile spending extra – as the results speak for themselves. Thank you Stephanie!

Idit Sandler - Nov 2012 - London

I’ve had very little make-up knowledge before my session with Stephanie. I hardly wore make-up and didn’t enjoy putting it on. Since my lesson with Stephanie, I started putting on make up in everyday life much more often and I actually enjoy it. It was great to learn more about the art of make-up and Stephanie explained not only ‘the how’ but also ‘the why’ of the make-up process.

Thanks to Stephanie, I learned how to apply make-up properly using the right brushes and she also advised on the best colours that work for me. I started to enjoy using make-up and look and feel so much better now, every day. I can truly say that Stephanie changed my life. Thanks again!!!

Dominika Binkowska - July 2012 - London

Thank you for all your help and for the beautiful makeup! I was so pleased with how we all looked on our big day! My skin looked flawless, and my eyes had a gorgeous smoky outline which enhanced the shape. The photos turned out wonderfully and I am so pleased at how we all looked on the day! The day was more than we could ever have dreamed of! Thanks Again!

Chantelle G - October 2010 - Leeds Castle

Thank you SO much for doing my make-up!! I am SOOOO pleased I paid the extra to have you! It was wonderful not to have to worry beforehand and I didn’t even think about my face all day!

Honestly, I was thrilled with my make-up. I shall defnitely recommend you to others and I will also contact you again if there is an occasion where I feel that I could treat myself to some professional make-up.

Helena Maxwell-Lawford - Sept 2010 - London

Stephanie’s bridal service was fantastic. As someone who doesn’t usually wear much make up I was a bit nervous so we had a trial session first.

She was incredibly patient and listened to all my concerns, and the results were amazing.
On the day, she quickly and calmly performed her magic, and the “wows” from my bridal party were all I needed to convince me that she was worth every penny.

Katie Weston - August 2010 - London

Stephanie was recommended through a friend, she has now done my make-up three times and each time I have been delighted with the results. She listens and understand what look you want and also brings her own touch, an excellent make-up artist.
