As a non-make-up wearer, I had a lot of anxiety surrounding my wedding make-up. I wanted to look beautiful and natural yet still do something special for my big day. I always wanted to make my future husband happy, who is not used to seeing me with make-up and felt very strongly about "recognizing me" on the big day.
Evy Drew was recommended to me by a friend and after viewing her website and speaking to her via email, I was almost 100% sure she would be the perfect make-up artist for me. Our trial solidified this. Evy was interested in what I wanted, receptive to pictures of celebs sporting the look I was going for and matched it to a T. She was super fun to spend time with and it was clear from the moment she walked through the door that I was her #1 concern.
She did not disappoint on the big day. My make-up was flawless! We had decided beforehand what I should buy for myself for the big day, she brought all the products for me (at a discount!) and even supplied me with some blotting pads since I got married during a heat wave and I was worried about sweat/shine. In fact, my make-up stayed flawless through hours of pictures in 98 degree weather and throughout the whole event. It was natural, timeless and beautiful without looking like I was "too done" which was my fear. My husband, who dislikes most make-up, was speachless and thoroughly impressed. She also did my mom and one of my bridesmaids and they looked fab.
Evy was a pleasure from the first moment, a true professional and artist. I plan to use her for a friend's wedding in the future and absolutely can't wait to be radiant!
Evy was professional, friendly, and did a fantastic job on me and my entire bridal party.
Evy was not only so much fun to have around that morning, she made my skin perfectly dewy but not shiny, chose the perfect cheek color for me-- and made me feel like a million bucks! She is amazing at what she does!!! I highly recommend using her for your wedding or special event. You will look like "your best YOU".
Evy Drew is EXCELLENT! A true professional who is so skilled at what she does and also a pleasure to be with throughout the process. My wedding makeup looked just the way I wanted - natural and yet contoured expertly for pictures.
She also did my mom's makeup, as well as several of my bridesmaids, who all also turned out gorgeous.
My favorite personal memory of getting ready in the morning is when I found out she has a spectacular singing voice, I joked that she should sing all instructions to me - she was a good sport and actually did it! Really helped me relax.
She also pinpointed the perfect lipstick shade, that I'm now obsessed with and wear all the time.
I recommend Evy Drew very highly, as well as the booking service, www.bookyourlook.com
Evy gets 5-stars for outstanding artistry, quality, professionalism and service! I highly recommend her as a makeup artist. Being an older bride, Evy made me feel so pretty! Her calming temperament was evident throughout the entire process - from my initial phone call to schedule an appointment, to my makeup trial and finally my wedding day. Evy's artistry resulted in positive feedback on how beautiful and glamorous I looked on my wedding day as well as how natural my makeup looked. I look forward to using Evy again for the next formal event I am going to attend!
Evy has such a high level of skill, knows her craft inside and out. She has such amazing experience with Bobbi Brown and other top makeup lines, and creates a beautifully sophisticated look that never looks like the plastic stage makeup you often see on brides. Plus, she has a perfect personality. She's fun, accommodating, calm, spunky, and just a great person to have around on the morning of your wedding. And she will guarantee you will look your absolute best. I would 100% recommend Evy!
Evy did an amazing job of ensuring I looked beautiful, yet natural for my wedding day! Because I don’t typically wear a lot of makeup, I was a little nervous that I may not look like myself for my big day. She did a wonderful job of enhancing my features in an elegant but subtle way. I was also concerned that the makeup would not last (we started makeup around 9:00 AM and the ceremony did not start until 6:00 PM). Not only did it still look perfect for the ceremony, but it was also still flawless at the end of the night (including my lipstick)! She was a delight to work with!
I tried out Evy for my engagement photos and found her work to be stunning while still understated--I didn't want the makeup to be too obvious and she worked with my skin tone and my preferred palette to find something natural while still bringing out my eyes and smile in a fantastic way. I was so pleased with her work that I asked her to do the wedding as well. The day of the wedding, she did all the prep work, during the photos, and before and after the ceremony (i.e., lots of touchups) that kept me looking as beautiful as I'd hoped for the big day. She was great as an advisor and even helped keep me calm and composed. I highly recommend her for both occasions and for any other makeup needs. She knows what she's doing and is truly an artist!
Evy was amazing! She worked with me to achieve exactly the look I wanted. I felt beautiful all night long and received uncountable compliments! She was a pro all the way, but laid-back, fun and enjoyable to work with. She was able to work with us the day off to squeeze in 2 additional girls and helped a couple bridesmaids add some lashes in between. Evy is amazing, and I will be calling her for special events in the future to feel pampered and beautiful!
Evy did the makeup for my bridal party and me for my wedding in July and she was wonderful! She sent a lot of time at the trial talking through and trying different options with me and everyone was so happy with their makeup on the day. I definitely recommend her!
I am not a makeup person at all, so really had no direction to give Evy other than "It's a Saturday night wedding, so please make me Saturday-night-pretty." She was amazing. I felt so like myself, but just BETTER. Not overdone at all, but really put together. Who knew I would LOVE false eyelashes??! Evy was so fun and light about the whole process, but really took the work seriously and made all 3 of us (bride, MOB, and me) look really stunning. Special note - I mentioned that I am fair and usually wear a moisturizer with SPF, so she brought special makeup with SPF for me, and even offered a discount she could get me. It was just really thoughtful and I felt like she was listening exactly to who I am and what I needed.
I got married on June 15 and found Evy two days before the d-day. Evy was simply everything you'd expect in a professional: she arrived on time, stayed longer, was available, kind, listened to what I wanted, what my mother wanted (we both got our make up done by Evy), and then she'd proceed with calm and patience you need on such a big day. I remember I was running around in my house and when she was done with my mother, she patiently waited for me to be done with whatever I was doing - not pressuring me but taking her time. When she started with my make up, she was so calm and patient with me. Really the behavior I needed for a professional.
Her make up was absolutely remarkable and reasonably priced, I was looking for something simple and earthy while my mother wanted something glamorous - well, she was perfectly able to do fulfill both of our wishes- even though our requests were opposite! My make looked amazing the whole day ... and night! The products she used were natural- just as I had requested so my skin did not react badly the next day. I also got the opportunity to purchase some of the products and she was patient enough to show few tricks.
Anyways, all this to say : Evy is amazing! Spare yourself the hassle of going through all profiles etc., give her a call and you'll see by yourself. I personally plan on working with her i the near future for important venues.
Oh, and French speakers- like myself: she knows enough French to communicate with you and make sure the make up you're getting is the one you want! Splendide, n'est ce pas?
So, thank you Evy.
Evy is such a professional and will make you feel relaxed. She listens to what you want and definitely is able to achieve your requests. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted my look to be and she was able to provide lots of ideas. As someone who never lets anyone do their makeup, I was so comfortable using her. Evy is not only honest with you about your look, she is a perfectionist. If she isn't happy with the way something turned out, she fixes it and makes sure you love it. I can't say enough wonderful things about her as a person or professional.
I felt like a princess on my wedding day, thanks to Evy. I got so many compliments on my make-up, and looked great even at the end of the night. Evy also made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, which helped so much the day of the wedding. I would recommend Evy and her services to anyone. I can’t tell you enough how much she contributed to making my wedding so wonderful and memorable!
I'll cut to the chase... Evy was perfection. I'm a 46 year old bride- 3rd wedding. I wanted to look like Angelina Jolie on a red carpet day, without looking overly done. Natural lip, smoldering eyes, incredibly cheekbones... but all with an effortless flair. Not an easy task on 46 year old skin! Somehow she managed to do it and make it last for 6 hours! I felt simply gorgeous yet natural, exactly what I was looking for.
Evy was also incredibly friendly and relaxed, she showed up to my home right on time, she was unfazed by the mayhem happening all around her. She did more than my make-up, she helped me get my dress placed just right and packed my tiny purse with a lipstick and gloss for retouch and a brush loaded with this amazing mineral powder that kept me looking fresh for the entire event- no extra charge for the perks!!
I can't recommend Evy highly enough, I will use her again and again!!
I recommend Evy without hesitation. She came over to my apartment for a consultation, which was great. It was a lot of fun and it takes the pressure off when you know exactly what look you want and how it looks. She made some terrific recommendations on products. On the day of the wedding, Evy made me feel very comfortable and relaxed, which helped so much. She also did my mother's make-up and she looked and felt beautiful. I got so many compliments on my make-up, and looked great even at the end of the night!
