Nancy did my and my bridal party's make-up, and it was stunning. Everyone looked amazing and we received many compliments. She was professional, but also sweet and fun and easy to be around. I am so glad that she was there to make us look gorgeous!!

Jill and Ranee were in charge of makeup for our big day. I had been concerned from the start about the forecast - not because I feared the rain ruining the day, but I feared that everyone's makeup would melt like popcicles in the summer sun. Jill assured me it would all be... Read More okay. Low and behold, when the ceremony gets ready to start (outside), the skies open up and unleash massive raindrops. Because my husband and I chose to stand without umbrellas, the entire bridal party did, as well - a super sweet gesture that I feared would be followed up with running eye makeup, smudged lipstick, etc. But boy, was I wrong! 45 minutes outside in the rain and we looked just as good as the moment the makeup was applied. I'm not sure what it was, but our makeup held up to the elements and I was ecstatic! Thank you Nancy fora great product and thank you Jill and Ranee for being so skilled with the tools to make us look so glamourous!
