Courtney, does perfect make up. I was a bride planning my wedding from out of town and wasn't able to have a make up trial. I had just sent her some pinterest pictures of make up styles I liked and described to her on my wedding day what I wanted. She did a fantastic job and... Read More there wasn't a thing I would have changed. She also did make up for my mother, MIL, and bridesmaids. She listened to what the mothers wanted as they didn't wear a lot of make up normally. She was nice enough to give some of my bridesmaids make up pointers as they were asking her questions. The best thing that was so helpful was when I told her that we now would be transporting girls back and forth from the hair salon (which was not originally planned), she helped me figure out a timeline and order of people to go. It made things go fairly smoothly. She does excellent work, is extremely professional and I would recommend her to anyone seeking out make up services for wedding, engagement or any other special event you may have.

Great Glam for my Wedding Day!
