From the moment I met the completely lovely Dani, I knew my make up would be as lovely as she was! I hired Dani for a one off occasion earlier in the year but ended up getting her back to do my make up every time we had a function! I also booked a make up lesson with her recently and the difference it has made to my everyday appearance has been amazing. It’s so nice to feel good about yourself when you spend most of your time running around after small children and doing housework! Thank you so so so much, Dani!
— Dianne Keith, Cambridge
Hi Dani, I just want to say a massive thank you for doing my wedding make up recently. You showed such dedication in helping to make me look my best and I had so many compliments on the day, I felt a million dollars. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone. Thank you so much xxxxxx
— Jo Hepburn
I would highly recommend Dani after her doing my make up on several occasions. She is able to create such a wide variety of looks from glamorous “night out “looks to more subtle day looks and fantastic wedding make up for brides and bridesmaids. She is friendly, easy going and gives honest advice on what look is most suited to you. Can not recommend her highly enough, had a great, fun experience and will definitely be using her again.
— Miranda Quazi
I can’t recommend Dani enough - she is so professional and a really talented artist. She listened to what I wanted in my consultation and delivered an amazing look. I wanted an old school glamour look with eye flicks and red lips - she made it totally wedding friendly and still very glamorous. On the wedding day she was relaxed and friendly but efficient and made sure we were all ready on time. My make up stayed perfect through tears, multiple kisses and hours of dancing. My bridesmaids and mum were all really happy with their make up too. I’ll be booking her for every special occasion I have as I’ve never looked so good!
— Sarah Duggan, London
Dani is a superb Make-up Artist, friendly and will ensure you feel at ease on your big day.

Just don’t leave your sweets laying around as she will eat them all, especially the Strawberry Sours ;-)
— Glenn Sparkes, Photographer
Thank you SO much for my fab bridal makeup tutorial last night - loved it and learned so much from you. Have already bought the brushes and Benefit eyeshadow palette today on your recommendation and can’t wait to try it all out! Thank you!!
— Claire Leigh, Cambridgeshire
 
Dani did mine and my bridesmaids make up for my wedding in March. Dani really listened to me at the trial and recommended colours that really complimented me. Dani is such good fun and incredibly experienced, she had all the make up timings on the day under control enabling myself and my bridesmaids to really enjoy the experience and have fun. I didn’t have to worry about my make up at all on the day as it lasted well into the evening. I received so many compliments - Dani made me feel really special on my big day. All I need now is another special event to attend so I can call on Dani again!
— Genevieve Zmura
I booked Dani for a private make-up lesson as I just wanted some guidance on how to best apply make-up, what I could do to make my eyes look bigger, advice on which colors suit me best and in general for her to give me a little more confidence on ‘all things make-up’. Dani came to my house and brought a huge variety of products with her and we basically started from scratch. Meanwhile Dani talked me through every step, explaining what she was doing and why, and how I could do these steps myself. I’ve now got lots of tips and tricks written down, not to mention recommendations for suitable products and brushes. I would highly recommend Dani for her skills, but on top of that she is also a lovely person!
— Megan, Cambridge
Me and my friend had our makeup done by Dani for our prom and we were extremely happy with the results. She is really bubbly and friendly, makes sure she does the makeup just how you like it and our prom makeup looked amazing! Would definitely hire Dani for any future occasions,
— Rita Puddy, Comberton
 
Dani is a fabulous makeup artist, and as someone who must always have amazing current talent on my backstage team Dani was the obvious choice.
Working with key clients like M&S I need wonderful professional artists who not only interpret the brief immediately but who can also work to a demanding backstage timetable.
Without hesitation I’d work with Dani again in a heartbeat.
— Ann Marie Lawson - Key Make Up Artist for M&S Christmas at Wembley Arena
I cannot recommend Dani enough. She is not only a very talented make up artist, but also a very lovely person. She gave me a makeover and my remit was the 1950’s look with winged eyeliner and red lipstick. I felt she really listened to what I wanted and then advised me as to what she thought would look good and it did! I was extremely pleased with the results and had compliments all evening on my retro/cool make up that stayed put all night long with no further applications required – amazing!
— Alison Hall
Getting married is a day in your life to remember and it’s amazing how much organising it takes and stress it can cause, so I was very happy to have Dani doing my make up as she has the ability to relax her clients with her friendly approach. Dani is very talented and for someone who isn’t used to having their make up done she was great at making suggestions and helping me achieve the desired look. Dani worked with my hairdresser brilliantly who fitted around each other to ensure I was ready on time. Anyone who has Dani with them on their special day will not be disappointed.
— Claire Taylor, Cambridgeshire
Dani did my make up for my wedding in October and well it was amazing. From when I first met Dani, at my trial, I knew she was going to be perfect. She just listened to me throughout the trial and came up with a look that was exactly what I wanted (she even managed to deal with my non stop blinking!). When she arrived on the day it was like I had known her for years, she was perfect when I started to get nervous and when I saw myself I couldn’t believe what a great job she’d done. The amount of compliments I had on the day about my make up were amazing, even now people say they can’t quite believe it’s me in the pictures! I would definitely recommend Dani for any events not just weddings, I’m already trying to think of another event where I can get her to do my make up….
— Ellie Edwards, Cambridge
Dani did the make up for myself, my two bridesmaids and the mothers on the morning of my wedding. I can not recommend her highly enough. The morning of your wedding is such a personal thing and Dani was lovely to have around. It felt more like a good friend being there rather than someone I’d only met once and she completely put everyone at ease. The timings were perfect; all our make up was done in plenty of time.
Dani is a fantastic make up artist. I absolutely loved my make up and she listened to what I wanted and then made it even better! The bridesmaids and Mums all looked gorgeous as well and our make up lasted all day and well into the evening!
I would recommend Dani to anyone!
— Jess Garrett
Dani, it was so lovely to have you as part of our day. Not only were you able to create a natural elegant look which lasted and photographed well but you were also so personable and made us all feel relaxed on a rather busy day! You were even very patient with us for last minute touch up’s as the ‘hair up do’s’ took a little longer than planned! I would have no hesitation to recommend you to future brides or to anyone wishing to take the stress away from doing their own make up and let a professional such as yourself work your magic! Thank you so much.
— Jenny Chamberlain, Cambridge
Dani has done my make up on several occasions now, she is very professional and does the most amazing job. She makes the experience so relaxing, fun and enjoyable. I always come away feeling so pleased with how she has done my make up from natural, to a red lip or smokey eye. I absolutely love Dani doing my make up and I would 100% recommend anyone to use her from weddings to nights out with the girls. Thank you Dani you are amazing! x
— Jade Garner
As a busy, working, Mum of 3, both time and presentation are important to me. I am a little set in my ways when it comes to makeup however Dani was able to show me some quick and effective changes to my everyday makeup. She gave me simple, clear instructions and took into consideration that my time is limited. I was really pleased!!
— Rebecca Ewers
The Juntion recently hosted Cambridge School of Arts Graduate Fashion Show, 2014. Dani worked as a vital member of the MUA team. She had great communication prior to the event and on the day. Dani was very professional, enthusiastic and friendly to work with. The make-up brief was followed closely and with touch ups and changes completed throughout the event. BEAUTIFUL make-up was created by Dani- the designers and models were very happy!

There was a fantastic response to Dani and her make-up work. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional, friendly and talented MUA, whatever your needs!

I would just like to say what a brilliant experience my make-up lesson with Dani was. From the very first e-mail, I knew I liked her and I knew she “got me”, asking me lots of questions to find out what I was hoping to get out of the session. She arrived early (she’d already asked if she could in order to set up) so was ready to start right on time - very professional and likeable and put me at ease straight away. Dani answered all my questions (and I had a lot) regarding skin care and make-up products, recommending several different brands in different price ranges. She not only showed me how to apply the make-up but demonstrated different techniques to achieve the best results for my face shape and skin type, which I have been practising ever since with great results. She took her time and I didn’t feel rushed or under pressure at all.
My lesson was a birthday present and in my opinion well worth the money and I would definitely recommend it - beats a pamper day any day!
In summary Dani is a lovely girl, who really knows her stuff!
— Laura Boatright, Newmarket

Dani did my make-up for my brothers wedding as I was a bridesmaid. I’m normally incredibly fussy and hesitant to let anyone do my makeup but she did an amazing job. I felt glowing and confident all day and the makeup stayed on until the early hours despite hours of dancing. I had compliments all day and would highly recommend her to anyone!
— Kate Matthews (Bridesmaid)
My daughters were given a Make Up lesson by Dani Evans as a Christmas present.
Both my daughters aged 13 and 15 were very impressed with Dani, she was very easy to talk to, totally engaged both the girls and explained everything she was doing. They both watched each other being made up and Dani explained what she was doing step by step.
They both looked beautiful she had made them both up using very subtle colours but they looked striking. Dani has a very bubbly personality and is very cheerful, always replied promptly to emails. I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone, she certainly knows her makeup! Thank you Dani x
— Jackie Bingley, Huntingdon
Dani is not only a talented make-up artist who will make you feel a million dollars; she’s just lovely, too, and would put even the most reluctant sitter at their ease. Thanks for everything, Dani!
— Anne Austin, London
 
Dani possesses that rare but essential mix of natural talent and an easy manner which can’t fail to put even the most anxious, fidgety brides at ease and help them look their best for their big day. After racing around on the morning of my wedding, preparing the flowers and the table settings, sitting down with Dani to be pampered helped me finally relax! She did a wonderful job creating a natural, barely-there bridal look (all soft pinks and peachy tones...) which helped me face the day with confidence. Dani really listened to my needs and enhanced my natural look. She’s a real gem with a warm, bubbly personality and a way with people: if you’re booking Dani, you’ll be in excellent hands!
— Jennifer Shelton, Cambridge Edition Magazine
Thank you so much Dani for doing my make-up for my wedding party last Saturday in Cambridge! I don’t usually wear loads of make-up and you knew exactly what to do to make me still look like me but a better version I absolutely loved the Nars sheer glow foundation you used and will definitely be purchasing this! Thanks again, you did a wonderful job!
— Melanie Kelly
Dani worked with us for the Cosmopolitan Very On Trend Fashion Show, where she did the makeup for the catwalk models. She was a pleasure to work with – highly professional and extremely talented!
— Sara George, Cosmopolitan Magazine
Dani was an absolute star and did an amazing job on mine and my mums make up for mums wedding. She was helpful and offered great advice on what look to go for as well as listening to what we wanted. My mum looked absolutely stunning, and it was so lovely (and emotional - no streaks thanks to the waterproof mascara ;)) to see her looking so elegant. Dani was professional, friendly and really helped to make my mums day special and I would definitely recommend her for any of your make up needs! xxx
— Charlotte Hills
Recently I got married and I was lucky enough to have Dani to do my make up. I just loved the way she made my make up appear so natural yet dramatic enough for photos, plus it lasted all day without any touch up. Dani is so lovely and chatted away to me on the morning of the wedding making me so at ease. I would entirely recommend her to anyone looking for a make up artist!

Dani was a lovely make up artist to have as part of the shoot. She took great care of the model throughout the day and was very efficient and organised in preparing when to change make up styles according to the outfits being shot. She gave helpful make up and hair styling suggestions according to the different outfits being shot, and I was really happy with the three looks she created based on my mood board. She also took into account what would best suit the model, outfits and lighting.
She was a really friendly, bubbly and amenable person to work with and brought all the team together even though it was a busy day.
— Uma Kangai, Fashion Designer
We were looking for a fun activity to kick start our friends hen weekend and thought a make up lesson would be the perfect beginning. From the very start Dani was amiable, professional and helpful. She taught us the art of the smokey eye, perfect red lip and blusher/bronzer for our 2 hour lesson for the 5 of us. Some of us love our make up and have a fully stocked make up bag - but that did not prevent us from learning something from Dani.
On the day, Dani fitted into our group seamlessly. She came to our hotel where we were staying and was bubbly, approachable and knowledgeable. She gave each one of us tips on colours, face/eye shape and how to highlight certain areas. She encouraged each and every one of us to try each element (including the basics of contouring) providing support, praise and direction. We finished our lesson and immediately ran out to buy some of her recommendations to supplement our make up bags!
I highly recommend Dani and her make up lessons. She showed me that my “strawberry and cream” complexion can wear a red lip and I love the look.

I would just like to say a massive thank you for doing mine and my bridesmaids wedding makeup on the 11th July, you really felt like one of the girls in the morning and it felt weird when you left us to continue the day. All of the girls looked absolutely beautiful and were so happy with their makeup, and I had no end of compliments so I must have looked pretty good to. I would definitely recommend Dani for wedding / any other occasion makeup, she takes into account your skin tone, and the look you are going for and can easily adapt the makeup to suit your desired style. She is also dependable, friendly and a great laugh. Many thanks again, and hopefully see you again soon xxx
