    • Jigna Patel - Hilton Edinburgh Hotel, Scotland "Avina was a prize to find amongst the many artists in her industry and from my first trial for my engagement, I knew I had made the right choice and could fully trust her to do my events justice. Her pleasant approach, attention to detail and consistency makes her both talented and worthy. All of the looks she created for me were perfect, resilient to all the chaos that comes with the most important times in your life and complemented the photography perfectly. She listens to your ideas yet creates a look that exceeds your expectation. Thank you so much for being who you are and can only wish you every success."

    • San Shergill – The Gurdwara, Bradford “It is so important to start the big day with someone cool, calm and collected and Avina was just that. The morning of my events were absolute chaos but Avina was a calming influence who helped out in every way she could and still did a fantastic job on my hair and makeup. Pre wedding, Avina was the most professional artist I had come across, with a comprehensive trial and the most outstanding make up style I had seen which is why I chose her for my big day. Her skin and make up tips have stuck with me even today so I would definately say that Avina should be regarded as one of the top artists in the country.”
      Rekha Gordhaniya – Maher Centre, Leicester "“For my special day I could not compromise with hair and makeup - it had to be the very best! I booked faces by Avina through recommendation, and without a doubt I have now booked her again for my next three big days. Very patient and co-operates to give u the exact look you want, being a fussy client she still catered for all my needs on my big day and made sure I had what I wanted. Very professional, friendly and patient MUA, just what you need on your big day!”"
      Neena Peter - Hampton Court Palace, Herefordshire "Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank to you for doing such a fantastic job on my wedding day!! You were great every step of the way, from our first meeting right through to the end. You always took our opinions on board, even when we repeatedly changed our minds! You were very patient and relaxed on the day, even though we had a lot of people to get ready in such a short space of time. You made us all look and feel like princesses and the pictures look stunning thanks to you. We'll always be grateful to you for making our day special from the start and we wish you and your girls every success in the future."

I had a laugh with Avina and she was so helpful and calming. I think her work is wonderful and I loved in particular the eye make up she does, it is out of this world. Avina, thank you so much for making me look great and feel great. You are so talented and I couldnt have chosen anyone else for my make up and hair."
      Trisha Solanki - Premier House Banqueting ''Avina is a very professional and extremely talented makeup artist. From my trial I was totally amazed by the look - it looked very natural and didn’t feel caked up at all. I booked Avina for all three of my events. Her concept of colours and blending is the best I have seen, she pays a lot of attention to detail which I liked about her. On the day my makeup looked amazing, everyone was asking me who the artist was! On top of everything Avina is the most sweetest makeup artist I know, she is always there to answer any questions and makes you feel like a bride the minute you step into her make room :)"
      Ruby Guram - Britannia International Hotel, Docklands "Thank you so much Avina for everything.

    • Heena Patel - Brent Town Hall "I’ve used several make up artists prior to knowing about Avina. I just wish i’d found her before! Avina is a friendly, calm and professional make up artist. Her time management is excellent and her attention to detail is faultless. During the lead up to the wedding my skin became quite sensitive and Avina managed to transform me without over-caking my face. My hair & make up was just as i dreamt it would be on my wedding day – flawless, radiant and glowing; simply perfect. I received so many compliments and friends have even booked her for their own weddings. My hair & make-up stayed intact all day and the pictures are stunning. THANK YOU Avina for making the most important part of what was the biggest day of my life so perfect!"
      ThreeBee Dance Troupe (Sonal) - Turkish Film Festival, Antalya – Turkey "Although performing at the Turkish Film Awards sounds glamorous enough….it wouldn’t have been at all without Avina. She made everyone look and feel beautiful with her extravagantly creative hair & makeup skills. Although she was under pressure & limited time due to circumstances, she still managed to make the troupe look incredible & like true Bollywood stars…whilst remaining calm, friendly & enthusiastic throughout. Thanks Avina!!"
      Vanisha Bahra - City Pavillion, London "Avina was absolutely an amazing make up artist! She has attention to detail that took my bridal look beyond my wildest dreams. Her biggest skill is time management, which is so important to brides on their wedding day.

She did a wonderful job and exceeded my expectations."
    • Poonam Doshi - Addington Palace, South London & Athena, Leicester "When I started looking for a make up artist I found that there was so much choice. I had trials with five other make up artists & was not too impressed, thus I continued my search which lead me to Avina. I found her to be polite, honest, friendly, quick and happy to work with me to achieve the look I wanted. I booked her immediately after my consultation - for my registry, wedding and reception. Everyone kept asking how one make up artist could achieve such different looks but Avina did! I would happily recommend Avina and already have!"

      Tejal Patel - The Copthorne Hotel - Effingham Park "Avina, I want to thank you for making me look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day. I knew I'd have one less thing to worry about once I'd booked you to do my hair and makeup for both occasions on the day as I had seen your amazing work at my best friend's wedding. The guests at my wedding and reception were full of compliments on how I looked thanks to your hard work – I still look at my pictures in awe. You were so calm on a very busy, demanding day and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or book you again for other events."
      Maya Parbat - TROXY London "Looking for the right make-up artist for my special day was not an easy task and after hearing horror stories of brides who ended up choosing the wrong person I was very fussy about who I was going to have do my make-up. A friend recommended Avina to me and what made her work stand out from the rest was her real bride portfolio. Any artist can put pictures of models up but you could see that Avina's work was real. To be honest the only thing holding me back was her prices! Yes she’s not cheap, and people may get put off by this but you have to pay for good quality and I got that and more from Avina. She made me, my mum and my sister look stunning, I didn't think twice about the cost and I even hired her again for my reception without a second thought! I had such an amazing day and felt like a princess! Even today people still say how amazing I looked and how immaculate my make-up was. Thanks again Avina- I'm booking you in advance for my sister’s wedding! X."
    • Sahira Choudhury "I had always dreamt of how my wedding day would be but never really expected a lot...the make-up Avina did made me feel confident, elegant and was more than I could ever wish for. I had never seen my skin look so clear and natural at the same time. Avina respected my style and how I wanted the make-up. On the most nervous day of my life Avina made me feel special and calm....thank you".
      Vanessa Gunputh - Three Rivers Golf and Country Club , Bournemouth "If you’re looking for efficiency, great attention to detail and a stunning bridal look, Avina is the person! She created 2 different styles for our Hindu Ceremony and Civil Ceremony which appear exceptional in our photographs. In preliminary meetings and trials, she helped me to decide on make up colours and hair styles, but the “final product” gave a truly sensational look. She is extremely confident and very talented. Avina, I can’t thank you enough!! And those of you looking for a Bridal make up and hair stylist that you can trust…..look no further!"
      Nilufa Junaideen – The Grange Hotel, London “I just wanted to say a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart. You were absolutely a blessing on the day.

It was a gamble because I didn't have the time to book a trial with her - but it really did pay off! She is a true professional whom is one of the best in her field and listens to what it is that you are looking for. She made me look and feel spectacular.

      Raman Chahal - The Gurdwara, Reading I didn't get much sleep the night before my wedding, but thanks to Avina that didn't show.

I was really pleased with her service and would recommend her to anyone. Thank you
      Roma Ayesha Nursimooloo – The Langley, Holborn "“Finding the right make-up artist was one of the most important aspect of my wedding day. I picked Faces by Avina for the big day in the first few minutes of my trial. Avina was fast, precise and knew exactly what I wanted without me having to utter a single word! I had 3 different events and looks on my big day and she make me look like a princess every single time in no time! I would highly recommend Avina as she is honestly the best MUA out there!
