If you want flawless makeup for 15+ hours on your wedding day, book Carla immediately! Carla did SUCH an amazing job on my makeup as the bride and did an equally fantastic job on all of my bridesmaids. She has such a sweet, fun and down to earth personality and made me feel... Read More incredibly comfortable and helped me to enjoy my wedding day. There were 13 of us that needed our makeup done and Carla brought 2 other makeup artists with her to make sure the day went smoothly and we did not feel rushed. I really appreciated how much time and detail she put into her work. I do not wear makeup often and never thought that regular, non airbrush makeup could look so great, natural and last so long. I have never felt so beautiful before with makeup on and have never received so many compliments. My makeup actually still looked amazing when I finally went to sleep around 4 am. Thank you CARLA!!

Let me just start off by saying that i am absolutely OBSESSED with Carla! From her bubbly personality to her dedicated professionalism and easy to vibe with persona; she is THEE go to makeup artist of choice! I've had my makeup done plenty of times before; only to go home and... Read More wash it right off. Coming from someone who loves hair and makeup, its hard for me to trust someone else to do it for me the way I like to do it on myself. Carla was the first and ONLY person thus far, that completely understood my vision the first time around (at trial) and instantly gained my trust. I was so comfortable on the day of my wedding, knowing she was going to glamify me to the nines, without me having to fix or change a thing and she just did just that! I have never felt more beautiful than i did on that day. Even all of my bridesmaids looked perfectly flawless! Honestly; anything or shall i say, anyone she touches turns to GOLD...she's just that good! From now on; Carla is the only one I'll recommend and personally go to for any of my future makeup needs!
