“Having worked in the beauty industry for over ten years, I am very privileged to know many of the world’s top makeup artists, but when it came to the important issue of my own wedding makeup – there was no question – it was Myriam who was my first port of call.Not only is she supremely talented with a great eye, matching colours perfectly to suit your natural skin tone and really listening to what you want, she is a great friend and instantly calmed my nerves.”

Olivia Falcon, Ex Health and Beauty Director – Tatler Magazine Now Founder of « The Editor’s List »

“The overriding remark from my wedding was not where I got my dress, or who did my hair, but what face cream I had been using for the last few months…. I had not used anything different, but I had found Myriam, and I am still getting comments on my ‘wedding glow’ eight months after the event. I will never get anyone else to do my makeup, ever! Myriam is the best beauty secret any woman can hope to find.”

Sacha Bonsor (Editorial Director “Boat magazine”) – London June 2015

From a Hollywood legend

“Myriam is such a highly skilled makeup artist; goes above and beyond expectations. She took her time and made sure everything was done to the finest detail. Her work is truly flawless!”

Loree Rodkin (October 2021)

Hi Myriam,

Thank you so much – I received so many compliments & will be recommending you & Paula to all my friends.

Sabrina Shah Desai, “Perfect Eyes Ltd” Harley street. (London March 2018)

“I have recently worked with Myriam of MimiD Makeup. She did the makeup for me ahead of a big photo shoot for my refreshed website for my business coaching and mentoring work. The photos are fabulous, and partly due to the way in which I looked in full makeup. I think I definitely look younger due to the makeup. 🙂 See www.adelemclay.com for reference.

Adèle McLay

“As you know I work in television there are many occasions when I am filming ‘on location’ rather than in a ‘studio’ and have to do my own makeup and therefore it has to be to a very high standard. The techniques you have taught me were not only fun and exciting but completely invaluable to me.

You have given me so many new looks, advice on products to buy and which brushes I should be using, that I just wasn’t aware of before, which will not only help me in a ‘work’ situation but also give me confidence to try new looks for every day wear, when I go to evening events and when I need to look extra polished for meetings with Producers and Directors.

Thankyou so much for making makeup fun and exciting again !!! “

Julie Kirvan – Actress

Myriam is a true talent! She is so confident in knowing what will suit you and if you put your trust in her the result will be outstanding. I wasn’t sure initially of the makeup look I wanted to have on my wedding day but at our trial she made suggestions I loved, then just went for it, it was a total success she superseded all my expectations. On the day she put me completely at ease, she is just the warmest person and has a truly lovely nature – exactly what all brides need the morning of their most special day! Having done my makeup to perfection she proceeded to ensure my Mum, sister and maid of honour looked utterly stunning too – under time pressure as well. There was no uniformity, everyone so individual yet clearly done by her expert hand!

So pleased I get to look back at my photos and feel so thrilled about my wedding look thanks to Myriam. Now I am trying to think of any excuse to have my makeup done again… and again by her.”

Izzy (London Christmas 2020)

“The era of the 60’/50′ are the main inspiration for my work and of course for my look, Mimi knew how to help me create a more contemporary style of makeup as well as introducing me to the right shops in London. She is a good listener and I love working with her.”

Vanessa – Singer and Song Writer – Vanessa and The O’s

“Mimi really knows how to do subtle quality makeup. Quite simply the best makeup session I’ve had. Wish I could take her everywhere with ,e!”

Anna Ruben – Actress/Writer – Anna Ruben

“Myriam was so great with my 12 year old and her 6 birthday guests! I specifically wanted her to do our party because Myriam focussed greatly on pre-teen skin care. This is crucial knowledge that will stay with the girls for life. The second half of their session was a super fun makeup tutorial with subtle looks for their age group. Girls just wanna have fun and Myriam certainly delivered a fun and informative workshop. 5 stars ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

Tanya Moodie Actress London (September 2019)

Mimi was my first choice on our wedding day to look after me, my 3 bridesmaids and my mum. She has a real understanding of people’s natural features and how to accent them beautifully, naturally (but with some staying power!) Mimi came to my home for a makeup trial for myself and my mum and was very professional whilst being relaxed and amicable making the whole experience really enjoyable. We tried a number of looks to which Mimi gave her honest feedback – exactly what I wanted! In the end, I was greedy and went for 2 looks for the big day – a striking red lip and cat eye flick for the ceremony and a smoky eye with neutral lips for the evening.

Lots of love, Lau xxx (Cotswold September 7th 2015).

“To promote Irreversible Magazine worldwide I needed to create something beautiful and arty. The idea was to be a butterfly to welcome readers to the world of Irreversible, Myriam sourced the most beautiful eyelashes and designed the pink and gold butterfly look. Magic!!”

Noor – Irreversible Magazine Miami – Irreversible Magazine

“After doing my Smokey eyes for my pre wedding party, Myriam delivered another gorgeous look for my Wedding party, it lasted all day and night and I had so many compliments. I now always call her for any event that I go to, she has become my favorite makeup artist!”

Mel (Primrose Hill, 7th March 2015)

Myriam is incredibly talented, and it was a pleasure to work with her on my Wedding day. Not only did Mimi create a stunning Bridal look for myself, she (and her brilliant assistant) also styled all of my bridal party too- which consisted of 8 adult bridesmaids and the Mother of the Bride, in a constrained timeframe. Mimi created looks which complimented all of our features, and everyone was delighted with the final outcome and felt beautiful all day. I was so impressed with her use of top-quality range of makeup, but also by her professionalism, time management and just how lovely she is to be around. I highly recommend Myriam to every future bride and their bridal party. I cannot wait to work with her for other special events in the future.

Pandora Carroll September 2022

“Myriam was great! We had two makeup for a gala dinner, it was chic and elegant, exactly what we wanted. She is so friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We definitely recommend her and her team. See you soon!”

Sephora, Sofitel London St James (December 2021)

“Really cannot recommend Myriam enough! If you are a bride who is yet to book your wedding makeup, then look no further. Not only is she highly professional and hugely talented, but she was a pleasure to have around on the day and made me and the bridal party feel at ease. Myriam style of makeup is very natural and her attention to detail is incredible. Thank you so much for doing all of our makeup and I cannot wait to use you again and recommend you. 5 start service *****”

Rosaria Musto (Non Such Mansion September 2021)

“Myriam is a pleasure to be with, fun, knowledgeable, completely professional and extremely good at what she does. Unlike the average makeup artist, her client ends up looking like a natural enhanced version of herself rather than like a painted doll!

Myriam doesn’t try to sell you products, she works with what the client has but will add in the odd product and will advise accordingly because of her experience and in-depth knowledge of the marketplace.

What was also impressive was that when you book her for a certain length of time but she never clock watches. In my case she went above and beyond, as I live completely in the opposite direction to her. As I say, a true professional!”

Karine (Hampton Court March 2022)

Miriam did an amazing job of my hair and makeup for an awards evening – I loved it. She made me feel at ease and we had lots of fun chatting.

Hannah Roberts life coach and Katie (London Hilton 12/2022)

Hannah Roberts and Katie

I booked Mimi for my makeup ahead of an event I attended recently in London and I cannot have enjoyed the experience more.

Mimi came to my hotel and from the exceptional set-up right through the whole process to the finished look, Mimi could not have been more lovely, professional and the best makeup artist I have ever had the pleasure to meet. The finished look was spectacular!

I really could not recommend Mimi more highly, she is an absolute must should you be considering anyone in this field.

Cat MacKinnon (Sea Container London July 2021)

“I had my makeup done by Myriam for my 50th party last weekend and it was amazing! Thank you! Highly recommend for a wow factor make over. Just wish I could have it done every week.. xx”

Suzie Godfrey Bickley 2023

“Our daughter is very self conscious of her moles and wanted to know how to cover them. Myriam was fantastic – so sensitive towards her (she is very embarrassed by them) and recommend products suitable for her age and bank balance. Myriam also provided some tips on eye makeup, which delighted my daughter and has been practicing her techniques. I would 100% recommend Myriam and hope to employ her again. Maybe next time I’ll treat myself.”

Janna Scott (South London 2021)

“I’m a 56 year old woman. For years and years I’d been sticking to the same makeup routine and using the same products. I’d always wanted to know more so I tried watching a few You Tube tutorials but I wanted something taylor made just for me.  I then discovered Myriam !

Myriam is amazing. I shall begin by saying this.

I booked a one to one makeup lesson with her and spent several hours (I wasn’t rushed in my learning process) looking at the makeup I had and how to use it; we then used some of Myriam’s products and I learnt so much more.

I now feel so much more confident and I cannot wait to do a ‘smokey eye’ when I go out in the evening!

Myriam’s knowledge is vast. She is so warm and welcoming and so friendly. I felt so comfortable and left on cloud 9 floating with happiness. It was the best gift to myself.

Whatever your age, if you want to update your look or just feel more confident ‘putting on your face’ I cannot recommend Myriam enough.

She also hold group tutorials which sound like great fun so I think I shall get a group of friends together and book again.

Every woman deserved to feel pampered and to be able to look their best. Myriam is the lady to help achieved this so if I were you, I would book a lesson and make yourself feel a million dollars !  It’s worth every penny.

If you want to look your best; see the best … Myriam fits this role perfectly. “

Claire Frank (West Wickham 2022)

“Never enjoyed makeup, thought it was not for me, never managed to learn. After my 3hrs with Myriam I feel confident in my base knowledge and I can’t wait to have all my makeup to start practicing.

On top of sharing her tips and tricks, Myriam is fun, full of energy and I felt completely Covid safe.”

Sara Cleger (South London 2021)

“Myriam was wonderful to work with. She made me feel so relaxed during my wedding trial and kept trying new things until I was happy. On the wedding day she arrived early and created such a relaxed atmosphere. I was delighted with my wedding makeup and everyone commented on how perfect it was! Would recommend to anyone.”

Abbie Cohen (Saville Club London, October 2018)

“I used Myriam’s company for a surprise Halloween party. Nicky and Jodie did a brilliant job with all our makeup – great range of looks and everyone was delighted. The whole service from booking to the night was very smooth and Myriam was brilliant at answering all of my questions and showing great patience. Really good value for money for the quality as well – strongly recommend.”

Ian Mack (Halloween London 2021)

“A wonderful lesson to a update my knowledge and learn new techniques to conceal ageing marks. The three-hour lesson included all about concealing techniques, various lipstick shades that would work for my skin, eye shadows for daytime, techniques and natural products.
Myriam was very professional using many leading brands such as Guerlain, Chanel and many more.
I would strongly recommend makeup lesson with Myriam to anyone who want to update their knowledge and techniques.
Very easy access by train. Parking available. Very clean. Very Professional.”

Claire-Lise Dean (South London 2021)

“Virtual makeup lesson”

“We had such a fun time learning how to do our makeup and the famous “smokey eyes”, I can now do it properly at the age of 43!
Myriam was very professional and encouraging. She kept the atmosphere light and the pace just right so we were all at the same stage. Even though we were a mixture of dark hair, light hair, fair and darker skin, she helped us choose the colours that would suit each of us best.
I would definitely recommend Mimi D Makeup for group makeup classes or makeup for a special occasion.
Thank you Myriam!”

Emma Rowland (West Wickham April 2020)

“Had such a wonderful makeup lesson with Myriam. I wanted to treat myself to something fun and pampering after months of lockdown and not wearing makeup at all. I learned so much about which products and colours to use and how to apply them. I’ve been buying the same few products over and again for years and was great to leave with a shopping list of makeup to buy that suits my skin and colouring. We tried colours that I would never usually choose like rose gold eyeshadow and a bright pink lipstick – both were really flattering. I will definitely go to see Myriam again any time I have a special occasion and want to look my best. Thank you, Myriam! 🙏🏻😀”

Ann Gregson West Wickham August 2020

“Virtual makeup lesson”

“I had an online virtual makeup lesson with friends ran by Myriam (Mini D makeup). I didn’t know what to expect, but what a great way to enjoy learning how to apply makeup and have fun with friends at the same time. Myriam’s step by step guidance was excellent and I tried techniques and experimented with colours that I would have never had the confidence to use. We all compared during the session, which was great fun. Would throughly recommend doing this. Thanks you Myriam.”

Linda Stone, Sevenoaks April 2020

“Absolutely loved this makeup lesson!! I learned so much about the basics of foundation and how to apply it, how to choose and select makeup brushes, eyeshadow and lipsticks. Myriam‘s knowledge has had an incredible impact on me, I loved every aspect of this private lesson. We tried different looks and now I feel confident enough to say that this course gave me all the basics that I needed to complete my makeup. Extremely informative but simple at the same time. Definitely recommended!!!”

Lavinia and Vitoria (Shirley/Croydon)

“Thank you Myriam, it was absolutely perfect! Daniella loved being taught by a professional makeup artist.  You were absolutely fantastic and thank you again for being so flexible at such short notice.  I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for that special something for their 10 years old who love makeup.”

Tracey (Hextable Nov 2020)

“Myriam did my makeup for my wedding on 26.09.20. She came to my home in South London, and did an extremely beautiful makeup. She made me look so glamourous. My husband thought I looked beautiful. She is also a very lovely friendly lady. She has been in the beauty and makeup industry for years. Her makeup kit was impressive and she gave me some lipstick to touch up my makeup later. I would highly recommend her for weddings and parties if you want to look and feel special. Don’t hesitate to book her.”

Veronique Chenu (Dulwich)

“We went to Myriam for our Halloween makeup and she did an amazing job, we received so many compliments!! Would 100% recommend Myriam and hope to have her for our future Halloween events xx”

Danielle Willingale (South London Halloween 2021)

“I booked a private makeup lesson for my teenage daughter as a birthday present. The lesson was great. Myriam is super knowledgeable and covered lots of techniques and tools. She listened to what my daughter wanted to learn and the atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed. Highly recommended!”

Maya Haiman for daughter Mika (Kent 2021)

“Mimi D did my makeup yesterday for a very special wedding. All I told her was that I wanted strong eyes and a strong lip and let her run with it from there. I was not disappointed.

She took into account my face shape, that I’m slightly older, and what I said about use of colour and created a truly beautiful makeup for me.

From this moment on she is my go to makeup artist whenever I have a special event. Without a doubt She is one of the most professional creative and lovely people I have ever used.

I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

Beverley Lowry, July 2019 West Wickham

“I am glad I had booked Myriam for my makeup class.  Myriam is very knowledgeable with her experience over the years and in  depth with the market and brand for all the budget.

Myriam had worked with the makeup I had and some she recommend which I can use .  I have learnt so much the basic foundation and how to apply,  selecting makeup brushes and  eye shadows.  Which I much appreciated. I hope I can carry on with this.

Thank you so much , word not enough to put down writing how much I enjoyed makeup class with you and our chat.  You are truly a professional , very experience and  knowledgeable .  I will book another session in the near future for the follow up.

Thank you “

Kirti Patel London 04/2022

“I had my hair and makeup done at home for my best friend’s wedding. Myriam is lovely, very friendly and her makeup skills are amazing. I would definitely recommend her and will use her again.”

Joan Quigley (Shirley/Croydon 2021)

“I found Myriam online when looking for a Makeup artist for my friend’s 1920s Hen Do.
As a bridesmaid you’re very aware of the pressure of finding someone good!

She did my makeup beforehand for my other half’s birthday and it looked simply stunning!!

On the day of the Hen Do, she was amazing, super professional, entertaining and simply wonderful.

All of the girls looked fabulous. Myriam has a huge range of makeup and tailors to individuals, whilst also sharing her professional expertise, to make you look fantastic!

The bride to be was ecstatic and all of us had a fantastic time. We were very excited to get going to our 1920s Gatsby night, looking so glam.
We got a lot of compliments on how good we looked!

Would absolutely recommend!!
Thanks so much Myriam 🙂 x”

Olesya Nova, (July 2019 Crystal Palace)

Myriam came to the rescue when I needed someone to do my makeup for my lovely sons wedding.

From the beginning she was nothing but professional, arriving at the Landmark where we were staying perfectly on time.

She took the time to listen to what I wanted and all the way through checked in with me. She made it feel like two friends having fun and experimenting so at no time did I feel anything but relaxed. The result was fabulous and lasted way into the night. I was so impressed and had wonderful compliments too. Oh, and the mascara didn’t shift when the odd tear was shed.

I’m so glad I found her and am looking forward to booking a makeup lesson soon to see what I can do.

Don’t hesitate to book you won’t be sorry.

Sue Niemiera (London August 2021)

“I went for a makeup tutorial with my mum. Myriam  was so nice and friendly. Made us feel at home. She explained everything clearly and was covid safe. Taught us 3 different looks and recommended a variety of products (different ones for both of us). Learned some good skills that I’ll use for the rest of my life. She’s a lovely lady and I would recommend for anyone.”

Leonie and Anne   (Surrey  September 2020)

Leonie and Anne   (Surrey  September 2020)

“I wanted to write to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us last weekend. My mum, bridesmaids and I looked and felt very glamorous indeed. Our makeup was absolutely beautiful. It lasted all day and evening – right until we went to bed at 3am after hitting the nightclub! I haven’t seen the official photos yet but just by looking at the amateur ones (!) I’m delighted with how my makeup looked, I really was. We all had so many comments on the day and Marc our hairdresser was very impressed too. He works with a lot of makeup artists day to day but was really raving about you!
I’m so glad you were there on my special day- you made me feel very beautiful – so thank you once again”.

Emma O’Dell (November 2012)

“I would like to thank you and Kat for all your hard work last week, we were all extremely happy with the looks that you achieved for all of us, and the makeup lasted all day. None of us are overly confident with the use of makeup, but you and Kat were so approachable and friendly, and willing to tweak anything that we weren’t sure of, that it made the experience enjoyable and added to the relaxed atmosphere of the morning.

Thank you once again “

Susan Smith (Wivefield 04/2022)

“Our Guests  thought the makeup looked lovely and natural. My mum and my bridesmaid also were very please as well with theirs.  Thank you for doing my makeup I’m so glad I had you.”

Tong Hannarong (West Wickham September 2017)

“I am not a fan of getting my photos taken but I needed profile pics for my new website. Myriam had done my makeup before – for some videos for an online course and she had been great. I rang her and she was not only able to squeeze me in but because I am local to her – she came to me – which was a huge bonus. I wanted a ‘me on my best day at work’ look for the photos and she really delivered. When she showed me the lipstick she wanted to use I wasn’t sure about it but it looked amazing in the pictures. She is great value, so professional, makes you look the best you can possibly look and so lovely and friendly. I have already recommended her to business associates and my professional photographer was so impressed she took her contact details as well.”

Nik Johnston (Beckenham 2020)

“I would have no hesitation in recommending mimidmakeup.  My sister and I had an amazing time with Myriam trying new techniques, experimenting with colors and just learning under the guidance of an expert.  Myriam is very keen to tailor your session to you rather than just a makeup lesson”.

Shirley Sterry (April 2022 Essex)


I Just wanted to say an enormous thank you for doing mine and my mums makeup so beautifully for our wedding day! I absolutely loved it and you were so relaxed and fab! Thank you!

Kim Vuong, (Bromley 2018)

“This was my first time going to a makeup artist and I was slightly apprehensive, but Myriam was very kind and put me at ease straight away.

She asked what kind of look I was after, I knew what I wanted but not specifically, Myriam made some great colour suggestions. I was delighted with the finished result, Thank you Myriam!”.

Laura (June 2014, West Wickham)

Award winning!
“We booked Myriam and Matthew Johnson for the HLW annual Halloween Party. They were super professional and passionate, bringing so many ideas to the table and working around our schedule. We ended up winning the competition!! Thanks for your help and creativity – we are looking forward to working with you again!! Katie Bowers – Overbury I’d like to give you 5 out of 5 stars too :)”

Katie Bowers (Business Development Manager)

“We were so over the moon with the makeup artists from mimidmakeup.com at our recent corporate party. Right from the initial planning conversations, Matt was a joy to deal with and really took the time to understand what we were looking for and had some amazing creative and also practical ideas for how we could get maximum impact from them at our party.”

Mel (5th November 2016) – PA to Vincent (Founder & Top Tosser)

“Had a great experience with Myriam and team – from start to finish she/they were both approachable and interactive with staff and students. The night was busy from start to finish but Myriam maintained the same amount of enthusiasm and energy throughout and our students had such a good time and loved their makeup. Good feedback all round. Thank you very much and we will definitely book again for another event”.

“I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for my makeup. Everyone commented on it! “

Michelle Soggee, London May 2018

“I just want to say again a very big thank you for doing my makeup for my birthday!!

Myriam’s details were given to me by my girlfriend who had her makeup done by Myriam, I was a little nervous because I don’t really wear that much makeup and I was scared that being of colour perhaps Myriam wouldn’t be able to get the right colour shade for my skin type, but I needed of worried because Myriam did an amazing job.

I met up with Myriam a week before my 40th for a little consultation so I could talk through what I liked and what kind of makeup I wanted done for my party, I explained to Myriam that my outfits I would be wearing on my birthday would be black and gold and I would like my makeup to complement my outfits. Myriam reassured me that she would do my makeup nice and natural, I wanted smokey eyes with a hint of gold.

After my consultation I left Myriam’s house feeling confident, she was so lovely and nice and it felt like I had known for ages. One the night of my party Myriam turned up nice and early and she even got me a birthday card bless her! she did my makeup and even helped out with my hair too! Everyone said I looked amazing and in actual fact Myriam only used a very little makeup, kept the makeup nice and natural, she applied false lashes which was my first time of ever wearing false lashes and they were beautiful and I actually forgot I had them on.

I just want to say if you are looking for a great kind, experienced makeup artist then I strongly recommend Myriam, I would defiantly use her again.

Thank you so much Myriam for making my 40th such a special evening for me. Love Suex”

Sue 40th Shirley February 2015

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for our makeup lesson. We both had such a great time – really informative, and we have been practising ever since – some results better than others, but as they say, practise makes perfect. Having just the two of us for the lesson meant we had real hands on opportunity to try and develop our much neglected techniques and gave us a chance to try out all the looks. We would highly recommend you to anyone.”

Jenny And Lisa (London)
