I literally couldn't wait to write this review. Donna is AMAZING. She is polite, professional, and does amazing work. I genuinely felt so beautiful after she did my make up. I know people always tell the bride they look beautiful on their wedding day, but when people told me... Read More that, I felt it, I just felt so pretty. I can't say enough about Donna. AND I got married outside (in the rain!) and my make up still stayed on all night. I gave her very little direction on my make up and she just knew exactly what to do. love love love her. I highly recommend her to any bride!

I've always considered having my make-up done a very "up close and personal" event. I look for someone who I feel I can trust and that I can allow into my "personal space". Someone who can create a "look" I have envisioned but who feels comfortable enough to offer their... Read More suggestions and who could tell me just what would work. In meeting Donna, that is exactly who I found. Not only is she professional, and talented, she truly shows the love she has for her job..

I am honored to have her as my friend and I would recommend her to anyone, because I know the results would never be disappointing.

Donna really saved the day when it came to my makeup. I had originally done a trial with my selected hair salon and was incredibly disappointed.

Positives: -Most importantly, I felt beautiful on our wedding day. I loved the way my hair and make up came out. It stayed on and stayed in for the entire night! Even my teenage male cousins had the nicest compliments for me :) -My 7 bridesmaids looked naturally gorgeous.... Read More Only my maid of honor's hair fell. -When I did a trial with Donna and Rana, before I even got to my brother's wedding, my hair came out. Bobby pins were falling out left and right. Donna and Rana offered to do a retrial free of charge. -Nine people got both their hair and make up done on our wedding day and we were finished about twenty minutes ahead of schedule. Negative: I had read in a review that for another (smaller sized) wedding, Donna came to do the bride's make up and then left while the assistant did the two bridesmaids'. Because of this, I made sure to have included in our contract that Donna, Rana and the assistant would be with us from 9:30am until 1pm. A few weeks before our big day, I emailed Donna to confirm. Donna told me that the assistant would be arriving at 9:30am but that she and Rana would be arriving around 11 after they did another wedding. I reminded Donna of our contract, but she told me she would never book herself out for for that long? Donna and I eventually spoke on the phone; I explained that I was now nervous about timing because I couldn't see how 9 girls could get hair and make up done in 2 hours if they didn't arrive until 11am. I explained that I booked her based on my experience with her and Rana and that I did not want an assistant doing the majority of our services. I feel badly for the other bride that morning, but Donna did compromise with me. On the day of, the assistant and Rana arrived at 9:30am and Donna arrived around 10am.
