' Gina and I worked on a feature film together called 'And Then I Was French'. I describe this movie as 'Bridget Jones' Diary' meets 'American Psycho'... the makeup for this film required ingenuity, creativity, confidence and skill- working under time pressure and in some difficult locations. Gina was an absolute invaluable member of the crew. She was light and calm on set; professional in her diligence as Makeup, Special Effects and Hair Designer- designing and styling all the looks from 'girl next door' to 'full glam' to 'eaten by a dog' (!). She is warm and joyous and hilarious too. She has the talent to elevate a production and is the person on set toward whom everyone gravitates. I was continually impressed by her work and just wish we could make another movie together soon!'
Joanna Vanderham, Actor
' I have worked with Gina as Head of Makeup & Hair on two feature films. Beyond the excellent quality of work she delivers, she also brings an incredibly positive spirit and attitude which resonates amongst her team, and of course being one of the first members of the crew to work with the cast, also puts them in the right frame of mind, ensuring each day starts on the right footing. An excellent Makeup and Hair Designer as well as team player, she's an asset to any production she works on.'
Mark Murphy, Director
' I've had the pleasure to work with Gina and her team for a few years now and haven't a negative thing to pass on. She is always attentive, has a good eye for detail and fun to have on set. I would whole-heartedly recommend.'
Edward Scott-Clarke, Producer, CNN
' Working with Gina was a pure joy. Not only is she great at taking direction and fun to be around, she is also creative in her own right- all of her input and decisions were invaluable for the film we worked on together. She is extremely professional, worked above and beyond and implemented everything to an incredible standard. I couldn't recommend her enough.'
Claire Leona Apps, Director
'Gina's work is always of a high calibre and the fact that her makeup skills are so diverse is a huge bonus. Plus, she is very good at sticking to a brief making our clients always feel at ease!'
Jemma Bolt, Actress/Presenter/Stylist

' Thank you so much for all your help on my big day- from the trial to the morning of the wedding I felt utterly spoilt. Thank you for transforming me into a beautiful bride, I will now be looking for an opportunity to have you do my hair and makeup again!'
Pam Cottman, Bride
' I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful makeup and hair you did for me and my bridesmaids. You were fantastic from the moment I met you through to my makeup trial, my extensive hair trial (!) and of course, my wedding morning. You were so easy to talk to and funny which helped me keep calm. I was absolutely over the moon with my makeup and didn't want to take it off- it lasted till 1 in the morning! You knew exactly what I wanted and created my dream look. It was just perfect and I felt so beautiful- I can't thank you enough! We all had numerous lovely compliments from friends and family and I will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for the perfect bridal makeup artist.'
