When I started my course with Saphire I was so ecstatic! Not only is she an amazing teacher, she is a wonderful person inside and out! She took the time to help and teach me on how to interpret the makeup requirements of clients and how to accurately produce both a creative and technical visual representation. It was one of the best experiences I have been through! I am grateful for attending her amazing class and I enjoyed every part of it!
Having had the opportunity and privilege to undertake my makeup course with Saphire, I must say it was and incredible experience! The detail both practical and theory has given me an immense level of confidence to diversify my skill set across multiple levels of professional makeup artistry. An incredible teaching style, with lots of fun and opportunities, to network with other industry professionals. I highly recommend this course!
I wish to express my delight in completing my makeup course with you Saphire. I gained confidence in myself and I gained some amazing skills which I would never have otherwise gained. Your teaching method combined with the imitate class size definitely facilitated this! What started as an expression of interest in learning to apply my own makeup has now turned into and obsession! I love making women aware of how amazing they can look and feel! I patiently (not!) wait for the opportunity to take part in any advanced courses you may offer in the near future. Fabulous course by a fabulous teacher!!
I completed my course in 2014. I was very impressed with Saphire’s skill set, knowledge and willingness to help! In class, she always ensures that her students concerns are always met, this being done in a smaller, more personalized class and relaxed environment all the while providing hands on techniques. Saphire brings her knowledge, passion and enthusiasm about the makeup industry, be it bridal, fashion, formal etc.. she demonstrates what it takes to become a successful makeup artist!
I completed my course with Saphire just over a year ago. Saphire is a delight, very professional and an inspirational teacher! She made the course effortless yet educational and not to mention humorous! She not only helped us and guided us through her course she continues to offer advise, help and is readily available to help at any time! I would recommend this course to anyone who prefers that personal experience and wants someone who will go above and beyond!

Saphire thank you so much for making feel a million dollars on my wedding day. I was so stressed before you arrived and you managed to calm me down with you warm words and sense of humor. My bridesmaids and I had a ball and felt so beautiful. My mother was also excited as she had never had her makeup done before and for the first time in a long time she felt glamorous, which made me very happy. Thank you again and best wishes
I just want to give you a BIG THANK YOU for the amazing work you produced on my wedding day. I felt so beautiful and glamorous yet natural. I also loved the goody bag you supplied for touch-ups. You enhanced and really bought out our features without going over the top. My bridesmaids also looked amazing and the color scheme you chose was so cohesive and matched beautifully with their gowns. Since my wedding day I have referred you to many of my friends and family because I know they will only get the BEST professional service.
Saphire I would just like to say thank you for making me and my bridesmaids look so beautiful on our wedding day. We received so many compliments and the makeup lasted all day and night! I will certainly recommend you to any one of my friends who is getting married. Thank you so much.
Saphire is one of the most talented makeup artist I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. To this day people still compliment me on our makeup. And I don’t know of one person who has gotten married since that has not used her services for their own special day. The morning of my wedding was also full of laughs and excitement thanks to her amazing sense of humor! Thank you Saphire.
