"I was lucky enough to have Michelle for x2 spring racing events. The hair and makeup looks she created for 2 separate days and styles was fantastic. She was always checking in with me my thoughts, ideas etc - both before the day and on the day. I've recommended her to lots of friends who couldn't believe their eyes at seeing me with such gorgeous looks. Thanks Michelle x " Susan - Beautifinda Client
" My bridesmaids wanted makeup that was light, natural and stayed on all day. Well Michelle Mccubbin Makeup delivered all this and more! Michelle took the time to assess each of my friends and what would look best for their features and skin tones. She also took the time to explain what she was doing and why it worked. Thank you Michelle for your enthusiasm and excited energy on the day and for making my girls feel so comfortable - this was so important to me. If you are in need of an amazing makeup artist in the wider mekbourne region - I couldn't recommend Michelle highly enough!" Alisha Harpur -(Bride)
"Michelle arrived exactly at the time agreed upon and it was like having a new best friend coming over on my big day to make me feel beautiful and calm. She matched my makeup to my skin tone and texture perfectly to make sure it would last the whole day. I left my house feeling spectacular and my bridesmaids were absolutely gorgeous! Michelle made sure we were looking wedding-ready and we had many compliments. She was organised, arrived on time, spent time discussing my needs/wants and helped me with details I hadn't thought of for photos. Truly a Cinderella moment was had that day. I have had her do my makeup and hair for other events since. Highly recommend Michelle for your big day!" Sam Bassegio - (Bride)

We were on the same page from the beginning, she listened well and offered suggestions as to how she could achieve the look I wanted on the big day. The products she used were of excellent quality and the techniques she used to achieve my bridal look were amazing. I was very happy with the end result and would recommend Michelle's makeup and hair services to any bride." Claire Smith - (Bride)

"Michelle was absolutely amazing! Such a friendly, accommodating individual and her makeup work is amazing! Michelle was sooo accommodating and easy to change bookings with. Absolutely loved her makeup. I usually have difficulty with makeup not lasting, or drying out my skin too much. Michelle listened to this and made sure she considered this when applying my makeup for my wedding. It lasted all night and no drying out of my skin! Would recommend Michelle for any formal event."

"Michelle was meticulous and thorough. She took the time to really hone in on the look I wanted and was flexible through the process to really get the look I wanted. Michelle was open on the day of my wedding to change my hairstyle (to what she originally thought I should do!) I went with her idea and I was so much happier than my own hairstyle idea. Thanks Michelle! Loved her work on this one! I really could not recommend her more. Not only does she do great hair and make up but, she is fun, kind and a pleasure to be around" Sanna Maelab - (Bride)
