Beautiful words from some beautiful brides
"Dearest Hong (& Poya)
Thank you for making us all feel and look so wonderful. It was so much fun and truly special getting ready with my sister and best friend. They both looked absolutely stunning. Thank you for giving me the most 'natural' fake lashes so I could bat them at my husband :) Thank you for being so gentle with me knowing I never wear any makeup and for the much-needed eye masks! I love that you got more emotional then I did! :) Thank you for respecting my privacy.
Thanks again, take care
From a beautiful bride (Anonymous)

"Thank you so much to Hong Le from Le Rouge Beauty for the outstanding work she did at my wedding last November. One of the best decisions I made was choosing Hong as the make-up artist for myself and my bridal party on my special day. Not only did Hong deliver the soft yet elegant style I was after, she seemed to do it almost effortlessly and stress free, with ample time to spare before the wedding. Her calm and bubbly nature certainly did wonders in easing my nerves and keeping me lighthearted and happy! I opted for an air-brushed make-up style and was a little hesitant at first due to horror stories I had heard about peeling etc. I have to admit though Hong's application was that of a true professional - flawless and enhancing my natural features. It lasted all day and night with no peeling whatsoever and probably would have been just as perfect the next day had I have slept in it. Hong made me look my absolute best and I felt like a real-life princess on the one day in my life that it counted, my wedding day! My mother's and bridesmaids' make-up was equally stunning and the girls couldn't complement the work enough. The beautiful wedding photos I now have to cherish forever validate my choice of make-up artist even more! But it's not only my make-up that I have Hong to thank for. Just prior to my photographer coming for pre-wedding snaps one of my curls fell out in a very noticeable place. Even though Hong wasn't my hairdresser on the day and was nearly packed up to go she whipped out her curling iron and fixed that curl for me in a flash! She really does have such a caring nature and is very proud of her clients and goes above and beyond to make sure they are happy. I have no hesitation in recommending Hong and Le Rouge Beauty to any of my friends or family in the future and am very thankful to have her share in my special day!"

"Thanks Hong Le
The day was perfect. Everything went really well. I'm hoping to have some of the professional photos this week so I will post them then.
Thankyou so much to you and Hayley for the hair and makeup you guys did such an amazing job. I have had so many people ask me for your contact details so be expecting some calls soon.
I honestly could not recommend you guys highly enough."

"I'm not a girly girl who wears much makeup, so I had no idea on what I was after. The artist at Le Rouge Beauty knew exactly what would look amazing on me and it was perfect! Hong was professional, friendly and exuded an extremely calm demeanor. Her calm confidence that I'd look fabulous was the perfect balm to jittery wedding day nerves. My makeup remained flawless and I received compliments all night on how great I looked. Plus my wedding photos captured me at my best! I'm so happy I placed my face in the hands of Le Rouge Beauty and I would recommend Hongs magic to any bride."

"Hi Hong, no doubt Xuan will send you her own message of thanks, but I also wanted to say thank you for your absolutely wonderful work, and of course the lovely Poya also. Xuan was such a breathtaking bride, and I know she felt beautiful also, which is the most important thing. Without any bias, the wedding was the most sentimental, emotional and romantic one I've been to. You would have loved all the tear jerking moments! Thanks again Hong, I think you're brilliant and are just going to be a huge success xo"

"I had Hong as my make up artist for my wedding in December last year. We had an average size bridal party of 3 bridesmaids, 1 flower girl, and mother of the bride. I was very worried about the make up for the wedding as my bridesmaids all had different types of skin and tones and everyone had various skin problems at the time of the wedding. Hong was very professional and made the girls and I feel very comfortable. Hong was flexible and catered for the various styles and shades the girls felt comfortable with even for our little flower girl. We started preparations at 6 in the morning. Hong and her staff were ready to start on time with a warm smile to greet you on your special day. I highly recommend her to all brides who are looking for a friendly, yet professional service for their special day! Thanks ladies!"
Happy bride, Hazey

"Hong and Hayley,
Thank you both SO MUCH for making me feel so amazing and beautiful on my wedding day. Hong, your makeup is just flawless, elegant and stunning. Each one of my bridesmaids looked like a million bucks too! Everyone commented on how beautiful we all looked, and I've already been asked quite a few times about who did my makeup!! Already, two of my closest friends have enlisted your services for their engagement and maternity shoot! From the beginning, you were always so prompt with your emails, professional but very caring as well. I cannot speak more highly of your work. Thank you again ladies!"

"Thank you so much for making my bridesmaids and I look absolutely stunning on my wedding day. With such a jam packed program for the day, you were able to push through the time restraints to have everyone looking beautiful from top to toe (with plenty if time to spare!). You are definitely the best at what you do and I could not have asked for anything better. I will always have the utmost confidence in you when recommending you to anyone in need of a professional hair and makeup artist."
1st December 2012
"Our wedding day was perfect, the bridesmaidsand I received a lot of compliments, of course we have given you the highest recommendations and I hope that you will have a few more clients your way soon!

I absolutely loved my make up on the day, I was so lucky you were available last minute :)
I'm going to view my wedding photos this Wednesday, I'll definitely tag or email you some photos. Don't worry Hong, I'll refer everyone to you, I'm glad your moving up here cos it's hard to find a good MakeUp Artist!"
5th October 2013
I just wanted to send you a quick email to express my sincere thanks to both yourself and Elisa (sorry if I spelt her name incorrectly!) for all your help on my wedding day.
I could not have asked for a better team to help with hair and make-up. It was so fun spending the morning relaxing and chatting with you. You really helped make the whole experience enjoyable for me - it was such a great start to the day!! I'm sorry everything just went so fast that I didn't get the opportunity to properly thank you on the day.
The rest of the day went smoothly - no issues at all! I could not be happier and I will always look back on my wedding day with a huge smile on my face.
And just so you know - I found my lipstick!! It was in a little pocket of my make-up bag that I didn't search on the day - so typical. Regardless, the make-up and hair was flawless.
I won't have my professional photos until one month's time, but the videographers on the day have sent me a little teaser video: "Huong + Kevin Putting a Ring on It"
I truly wish you all the very best with your business and I'm sure our paths will cross again in the future."

We had an awesome time on the trip though – and the wedding was all that we had hoped for and much more!
I had meant to send you an email before I left on our honeymoon to THANK YOU for your contribution in making the day the success that it was but I ran out of time before we had to jet off to Dubai – so sorry!!!
Belatedly – thank you so much for your work, patience and support on the wedding day and the many months (and make-up trials!!) leading up to the day. You were a fantastic to deal with, and I would have no hesitation recommending you to friends and family. By the way, I LOVED my hair on the day (as did Greg & all the guests)! Both the make-up and hair turned out beautifully on the day, and – OMG, the photos and the video are beyond our expectations! I will try to send some to you shortly to check out.
Thanks again, and I hope our paths cross again soon. Don’t be a stranger!
