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!!

Penny was amazing!

Loved working with Molly! Molly's ability to make your airbrushed skin look and feel like perfection! She has an abilty to enhance your natural features without layering or "caking" on the make-up.

We had Stacey and her assistant do our makeup for my wedding (me, bridesmaids, mother of bride and sister in law of bride). They were both so nice and did an amazing job. The makeup was so natural looking and everyone looked absolutely beautiful.

Brideface really is the best there is in Cincinnati, and absolutely worth the price. Tara and Ranee were sweet, fun, professional, and (best of all) easily accessible. They were both so responsive to all my little questions leading up to the wedding day. Tara was our hair... Read More stylist and Ranee did our makeup, and I would absolutely recommend both of them to any bride. I was worried about how both hair and makeup would hold up through the day, ( I have soft, fine hair that has a hard time holding a style, and very oily skin), but eight hours after styling, they both looked flawless. These ladies absolutely know what they're doing! I know that when I was looking for services, I wanted to see before & after photos, so if anyone reading this would like to see the amazing transformation these women performed on me, feel free to email me at jemhawk@yahoo.com

Honour Hook did my make-up as well as my mom's and Matron of Honor. She was amazing. She did not rush. She was fun to be around and we thoroughly enjoyed her company.

I highly recommend Brideface and Honour especially.

I booked Nancy to do makeup for our wedding and could not have been more pleased! She did a WONDERFUL job. All of my bridesmaids loved their makeup and so did I! It doesn't hurt that she is super efficient and ran 100% on time on the wedding day. Nancy did my own makeup for my... Read More engagement pictures, a trial, and on the actual wedding day and I was in love with it all three times. She was very open to suggestions and made sure I looked exactly how I wanted to look! It's also super helpful that eyelashes are included in the price and not an added cost as most girls want that anyways. She also has the option of purchasing your lip color which I loved. I would absolutely book her again! Amanda from Brideface did hair on the wedding day and was perfect as well. Again, she was super efficient and 100% on time. All of the girls loved the way they looked. And none of them looked like they were going to the prom (which can sometimes happen with wedding hair). My hair was flawless. Zero complaints. Again, I would absolutely book her again! You won't regret it!

I cannot say enough about Nancy and her team at BRIDEface. She came into our home the day of our wedding and made not only me, but my two girls feel so at ease and taken care of.

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!

Nancy did my whole bridal party's makeup for our labor day weekend wedding. I was most concerned about looking like I was too "overly done" with makeup and having makeup last the whole wedding day.

So, everyone asked why I was paying to get my makeup done or why I was offering it to my bridesmaids. Everyone on your wedding day deserved to be pampered, and Nancy does just that and more.
