Client Testimonials

THANK YOU THANK You THANK YOU !! I am from Canada with a destination wedding in Dubai, so I met Louise online and liked her work after seeing her instagram page, and decided to work with her after seeing various artists. she was exactly what I wanted: she mastered both simple and traditional make up. I told her what I want and showed her what i dont want and arranged everything online. Once I arrived to Dubai we did a trial, and I told her exactly what I wanted, and she did EXACTLY THAT ON THE DAY OF THE WEDDING. shes very understanding, patient and kind with the bridal stress especially. At the end when all is done, she saved the day by helping my husband cover up a cut on his face. would 100% recommend and its not worth going for anyone else, because she was a big part of my day, and made me into the bride I was.

I never ended up doing a trial with her, I trusted my friend who does a fair amount of photo sessions. Naturally I asked for a recommendation and LOUISE MONIQUE springs to mind.
Even before we met, through all my whatsapp exchanges with her, she was professional and so nice! Even when I changed the date on her a couple of times, she was totally chill about it…
I myself watches make-up tutorials on youtube and follow certain beauty vloggers. But Louise applies make-up differently that completely change the finished look.I received admiring looks and smiles even from total strangers!

She knew how to work with my facial structure and complexion to enhance my features. She has a wonderful eye for color. Her brush strokes was feather light but the sheer layers of make-up blended so well that it practically becomes part my skin.
But what I like most about her is she has an intuitive sense for personalities and style, respectfully listens to your requests and moves throughout the getting-ready period of the day with a calm, collected stress-free attitude.I was married during the August heat wave here in Dubai – which we did some pictorials outside – and my makeup was flawless the entire day! The value of not touching up your makeup on your wedding night is seriously priceless.

I can’t recommend Louise enough, she is so talented at her craft and you can tell she is passionate of what she does. If you’re thinking of booking her, act quick before Louise gets booked up!

Wanted to say a big thank you to Louise Monique …I came to Dubai with my fiancé to do a pre-wedding photo shoot and Louise’s work was amazing, she’s extremely professional and easy going. On top of that, she is so accommodating and puts your needs first. Louise and I spoke over whatsapp a few times before I arrived as she wanted photos of my outfits and the kind of look I wanted to go for and she put in so much effort to try and achieve exactly what I wanted. My photo shoot came out amazing, better than expected and I don’t think it would’ve come out as good if Louise hadn’t dressed me, she gave me so many different looks.
After having such a good experience with Louise I invited her to my wedding in India to do my make up and the make up of my guests. All my guests loved her and I’m pretty sure we will be using her again. If you want amazing make up, Louise is the one to have and she’s so lovely to work with and make you feel so comfortable. Thanks again Louise, hopefully will be seeing you soon. Xxxxx
