Matt is an absolute dream to work with. On a feature shoot that consisted mainly of long night shoots his job of transforming me from half asleep to camera ready wasn't an easy one, but he smashed it every day/night. He really is brilliant and I was always so happy with the looks he created on me, whilst very at ease in his company which is so important when working in close confines. If I could I would have him with me on every job.

I have worked with Matt and would like to say that his attention to detail is second to none. Matt takes his time to make sure he is happy with what he is achieving as well as listening to the model/client that he is working with as well as conversing with the photographer to make sure that between them as a team the right image is produced. Matt is a great team worker and very likeable so makes it incredibly easy and a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone and I for one can't wait to work with him again 😀

I have had the pleasure to teach Matt Simpson both at University College Birmingham and at my own private make up school MAKUP; The Academy of Film and Media Make-‐up. As a multi award winning make-up designer, I know the importance of a certain skilset that is required within this Industry. Matt contains all the qualities I would look for in a fledgling make-‐up artist. He is calm, organised, efficient, reliable, willing, has a sense of propriety, a great eye for detail and is totally trust worthy. I can recommend him 100 percent, he would be an asset to any make up team.

I've known Matt for the past couple of years, he has done my make-up on several occasions!
First occasion, was me as a bridesmaid! I was really nervous about having my make-up done as I have pale skin and really didn't want anything too over the top! I certainly had nothing to be nervous about! Matt is very professional! He will listen and take into consideration you skin tone, complexion and what colours you are comfortable with! I loved my make up that much I then had him for my own wedding.
