Reviews & Recommendations
“I booked Maya to complete my bridal hair and makeup for our big day on 14th August 2015, and I have nothing but praise.
“Before the day she came to my home to complete a trial. She accommodated my hectic schedule and worked around me, which was fantastic. She followed my brief, pictures and instructions to a tee, and was able to tweak parts which I wanted to change in a professional manner. On the day, she was my calming voice of reason who transformed me into the “blushing bride”. My makeup was very natural but stayed on all day, despite the rain’s best efforts, which I know is down to her application.
“I would 100% recommend Maya’s services to anybody who is in need of a makeup artist and hair stylist. She will get the job done in a friendly and professional manner and use quality products which hold all day long.”

“Maya Lewis has participated in two of our RA Lates events, where she created bespoke facepainting designs inspired by artworks. One event saw her create effective Hockney swimming pool-inspired designs, which were incredibly popular with our guests. For another of our events, she created Pollock-inspired bright coloured looks for our Manhattan Swing Late.
“For both events she came up with creative concepts, was great to work with and provided a professional service for our guests on the night.”

“Thank you so much to the wonderful Maya who did my hair and make up for my wedding day. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish – made me feel totally at ease, created just the look I was hoping for and was lovely to be around.
I adored my makeup and hair on the day and had so many comments from other people about how beautifully styled my hair was and how natural my makeup looked. I really can’t thank you enough for contributing to the happiness of my day!”
“Maya is a great and talented makeup artist who, as a Creative Director of Masquerade & By DR M, I’ve had the great pleasure of regularly employing for over 4 years.
“From Halloween with Jonathan Ross, to private parties and also for my film work, she has a first class attitude and delivery of her services at all times. This is reinforced with a very professional approach, that comes with a big smile too.
“Without doubt, Maya is a great ambassador for all things to do with makeup, and by now she’s a very trusted member of my ‘A Ade-Team’ and all that we do event-wise.
“I wish her the very best of luck in all her future projects and ventures, as I know that the next MUA event with her is only just a short call or text away…”
Ade Silas, Director, Masquerade Events
“Maya is a consummate professional with an amazing wide ranging ability. While I have seen much of her Bridal and Fashion work my practical experience with her has been through Special Effects and Horror makeup.
“After many years working as an actor I can confidently state that there is no one more skilled, talented. creative and, importantly to me, cheerful in the business. Sitting in the makeup chair while Maya makes you hideous is a constant pleasure.”

“Maya trudged across London with her kit in tow, all the way to my home to do my wedding day makeup. She was amazing and offered to do whatever I wanted, but her advice was to go natural and light, which I was happy to try. I looked flawless yet natural, and felt radiant for my special day.
“Maya is professional to the last whilst friendly, approachable and considerate of all desires and requirements. Highly recommended.”

“I was worried that having four bridesmaids, all in different locations and needing makeup and hair design for my wedding, would be an issue, but Maya assured me it was no problem. We had a couple of trials to finalise the details, with Maya also working with the bridesmaids individually.
“On the day, everything was perfect. I felt like a million dollars and my bridesmaids all looked stunning. All the way through the process, Maya was highly professional, taking time to understand the look I wanted and taking a lot of stress away from a bride-to-be. I cannot recommend her enough!”
