A BENJAMIN ROBERTS FISHTAIL GOWNLisa: “I met Eve Ashby at a wedding we shot in Devon. I was drawn to her huge stash of Bobby Brown, Mac and Nars products and was really impressed by her cheerful and calm nature. She arrived at 7am on the morning of the wedding and managed to get through all five bridesmaids, my mum and me without any rush whatsoever. The girls all looked absolutely stunning and told me how amazing they felt. One said it was the best she had ever looked in her life!”





Bridal wedding make-up in SomersetSarah: “Eve did my wedding makeup, and also make up for my mum and sister. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, she is calm and enormously professional whilst also being warm and friendly. Our makeup was flawless and absolutely beautiful. It looked as good at the end of the day as it did when it went on and none of us wanted to take it off!”

I was absolutely thrilled with the make-up, and I know the girls and mum were too. We felt like movie stars for a day! In addition to the make-up itself, I wanted to say thank you for your absolute professionalism throughout the day. Your organisation and patience really helped everything go smoothly — I felt you were a real calming influence! It was an real pleasure to have you there with us. You made me feel as special as a bride could possibly feel!



Terri-Steve-054-langdon-court-devon-wedding-photographer-rebecca-roundhillTerri: Dear Eve. Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job of mine and my bridal parties make-up. You made us all look and feel beautiful. You are also such a lovely person and made the whole process so comfortable. I will recommend you to everyone! Lots of love Terri xxx






albert-palmer-photography-sam-rich-009Samantha: Hi Eve, I just wanted to say thank you so much for doing all of our make-up on our wedding day. Everyone looked absolutely perfect! I’m so impressed you were able to calmly do make-up for nine people in only a few hours and stay perfectly on schedule. Everyone was so happy with how they looked on the day and we all got a ton of compliments! I’ve never seen my mom so confident in her appearance and my friend, Dani, is still talking about having you move to the states to do her make-up everyday haha! I also want to thank you for all of your help throughout the process – I went into this not knowing much about make-up, or what I even wanted, and without all of your suggestions I know I wouldn’t have been nearly as happy with my appearance on my wedding day as I was. Thank you so, so much for helping to make our day so perfect! Sam

My bridal party looked so beautiful and elegantly made up, your talent really is incredible. Thank you also for being such a calming presence on the day. I felt like a princess all day long and was very sad when the make-up had to come off! Very best wishes. Jessica










Samantha: Hi Eve, Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for styling myself and the bridal party on my wedding day. I’m so grateful for your relaxed and calming manor particularly with the girls as they had not had trials. I wanted everyone involved to feel comfortable and themselves and not tell them how to have things, I’m also rubbish at making decisions and you made that so easy for me and your skills were everything I’d hoped for. They were so pleased with their make up and each style really suited them as individuals, I could tell they all felt and knew they looked incredible. I too absolutely loved my makeup, it was exactly what I wanted and I felt amazing all day. We all had so many lovely comments and our makeup lasted all day despite the little rain we had. My gran in particular has been raving about you and her makeup since, as you know she was a little unsure about having it done but as you’ll see from the photos she looked amazing, her blue eyes really popped. She’s even thrown out her old blue eye shadow and bought a brown collection on your advice.Eve thank you so much for making us all fell so calm and beautiful on the day. It was a pleasure to get to know you during the process, I’m just sad I don’t live closer so that I could come see you again for occasion make up, perhaps in the future some day. Many thanks again. Sam xx


IMG_7623Mairead: I live in Sydney Australia so organising my wedding in my home town in Devon from afar posed several challenges. Choosing a makeup artist was one of those! I was immediately drawn to Eve’s style when I came across Eve’s work through an editorial feature. After reading through her website I was really impressed with her level of experience and professionalism so I dropped her an email. Eve’s response time was very quick and she made it easy for me to set up a call and next steps. Eve was easy to talk to and extremely understanding of my situation. Especially that I would only be in Devon for three days of planning before my actual trip back for the wedding. I loved Eve’s flexibility and how she made the experience stress free. Eve is very skilful and applied her extensive knowledge of makeup art on the day to tailor each of our look while maintaining a consistent style throughout. It was such a luxurious experience to have professional makeup art on my wedding day and it made me feel extremely pampered and prepared. The makeup and eyelashes lasted for the entire day without smudges of blurs, I was really happy with the result.

Dear Eve,

I wanted to say a huge thank you for doing all of our make up for our wedding day back in August. Everyone looked great – the bridesmaids all looked beautiful and my mum absolutely radiant. I loved mine too; you made me feel lovely with a natural look that brought out my best features, hid my worst, that stayed in place all day and looked great in the photos.

I loved getting ready with you in the morning, all the girls commented on how great you were and how much they liked what you did with their make up. You were a pleasure to work with throughout the planning process and one of my favourite suppliers. It all went so fast on the day, I want to go back and do it all again! In fact, can you do my make up every day?!
