“Anna-May’s make up is perfect for me as it’s always nice and light and most importantly natural looking. I love the fact that airbrush foundation is used over the usual painted on look. My skin looked amazing afterwards, and at such reasonable prices I would recommend Anna-May to my friends and family.”

     Gemma Atkinson, Actress/Model (2012)

“We were delighted to have Anna-May working with us on our comedy pilot. Not only was she a pleasure to work with – which helped to create a great atmosphere on set – we all (actors, crew and production staff) commented on how brilliantly Anna-May and the rest of the make-up team handled complicated hair and make up transitions between scenes. As it was a comedy set across several centuries, the demands were great and our facilities were limited, so we were really impresed with the results. Such creative and thoughtful, well researched work as well. It was unbelievable what she achieved and we cannot recommend her enough. Anna-May is an absolute pleasure to work with.”

     Wanda Opalinksa, Actress (2012)

“@AnnaMayBall     Thank you so much, I really love my make-up, I was so lucky that you did it.”

     Mark Edmonson, Photographer

“I’m astounded as to how good our photographs look. You’ve managed to balance the make-up with the colours of the jewellery perfectly, and the combination of both makes them look elegant and timeless. Thank you so much.”

     Jan Chilton, Sunrayworld

“I am so glad I agreed to our photographer using Anna-May as the make-up artist for our recent catalogue update. We are only a small company, but the images she has helped create, make us look like we compete with the market leaders. Interest in our products has increased dramatically following the last updated. She comes highly recommended.”
