Testimonial from Belinda, who is now living as a woman, her true self: When I was a bridesmaid for a friend’s wedding, I searched around for a professional makeup artist to make me look as good as possible for this special day. I did a lot of online searching and came across Iridis Cosmetics, which seemed worth trying. On the day of the wedding, Peta-Gai McLaughlin came to my place to do my makeup. I have had my makeup professionally done a few times before, but no one did such a great job as Peta-Gai. The result was extraordinary. As a transgender female, I was astounded at how beautiful she made me look and feel. Her makeup skills are astounding, as are her hair styling skills. At the end of the day of the wedding, I was so reluctant to wipe off my makeup. Her work seemed like a true masterpiece. I will only ever use Iridis Cosmetics in future for any more professional makeup. I highly recommend Peta-Gai and Iridis to anyone considering getting their makeup done or who needs a lesson in hair and makeup.”
