Out of this WORLD!

Reviewed on 12/17/2011 kev m

Dawn is absolutely out of this world. I've had my make up done by many different make up artists and no one even compares to Dawn..not even close. She knows exactly what you need, how you should look and what makes you as individual "pop". She has done my make up in the past... Read More many times but my wedding day face was flawless, I mean flawless. It looked super natural and she created such a beautiful look. She also did make up for most of my bridesmaids and every single one of my BM's looked stunning. She truly is an amazing artist...Shes calm, collective, creative and that's exactly what you need on your wedding day. I can't thank you enough for your beautiful work and talent on my special day! :) I felt like a celebrity the service was superb !!

Perfect Wedding Day Make-Up!

Reviewed on 8/16/2011 Heather S

Dawn did my make-up for both my photo engagement session and on my wedding day (June 4th, 2011), and it looked fabulous! I am not one to normally wear a lot of make-up, so she did an excellent job of making it look natural - I got so many compliments! It stayed on and in place... Read More all night long, and it looked great in our wedding photos. She responded to my many emails promptly, and she helped me to work out the make-up schedule on my wedding day. She is a professional, and her dress and demeanor on my wedding day reflected that and made us all feel comfortable. She really cares about her work, and she wants everyone to look and feel their best. My mom, two sisters, grandmother, and stepmom all loved their make-up (especially the eyelashes!), and I would definitely recommend Dawn to future brides. She truly made me feel beautiful on my wedding day, and I hope to see her again myself in the near future for an upcoming event!

Wedding Perfection!

Dawn was highly recommended by a friend to do my make up for my wedding. I decided I would have Dawn do my make up for my engagement party, and as soon as I saw the end results, I knew she was exactly the person for the job! I typically don’t wear a lot of make up in my... Read More day-to-day life, and I can’t stand when brides don’t look like themselves on their wedding day, so I explained to Dawn that I want to look like myself on the big day (just a better version!). Dawn did everything I asked and more! We discussed what kind of look I was going for, what shades would look best on me, etc. I actually had Dawn do the make up for six of my bridesmaids, in addition to my own. She kept to the timeline and was done with time to spare! Everyone commented throughout the night on how beautiful everyone looked, and I could not have been more pleased. I truly felt like I looked more beautiful and elegant on my wedding day than ever before, and that is because of Dawn! She is professional, makes you feel relaxed and does extraordinary work. I have now had Dawn do my make up for various occasions and am always beyond satisfied. I would definitely recommend Dawn to anyone who is looking to look their best for any occasion! She's the best!

Dawn made the entire bridal party look absolutely stunning. Her patience and professionalism made this part of the getting ready process most enjoyable. I cannot wait to have an event to attend just so I can use her services! My girls all felt the same.

Im not a huge princess person but i felt like royalty on my special day!

I have never met someone with such an amazing heart and personality. I found Dawn online reading through some reviews for a makeup artist, I am so glad that I decided to go with her, she was my first choice! We met for a trial at my apartment and she was the picture of... Read More professionalism. We had so much fun just chatting about life, love and everything in between. I had told Dawn that I wanted something very simple but that would enhance my natural look on my wedding day. I wanted my Groom to be able to recognize me lol. The trial went amazing and on my wedding day, I could not have been happier. She was on time, and I was confident that everything would be perfect. We had so much fun, and I feel like she is an extension of my family. When I looked in the mirror on my wedding day I had never felt so beautiful. She made me glow not only on the outside but inside as well. When I walked down the isle bawling my eyes out in happiness, I was so happy she had given me waterproof mascara. She stayed for my ceremony and helped me do small touch ups for my pictures afterwards. She is truly a friend now and I am so happy that the universe brought us together. *HUGS* I love you Dawn! If you want someone with true talent, great personality and a pure heart. You cannot go wrong with Dawn at Edit Faces :)

Dawn is amazing. Hands down one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. She is truly a master at her craft and made me feel so beautiful - seriously, I didn't have a bad angle in any of the pictures! She was someone I found on The Knot, reached out to her on a whim and... Read More couldn't have been happier. She also did my mother and bridemaid's make up. She transformed my best friend and mom into Goddesses :) If you are even remotely considering her - do it!! You can tell she loves what she does, is an absolute sweetheart and will bring out features you didn't know you had!!! I will be using her talents again in the future for other events!

A Forever and Ever Edit Faces Client!

Reviewed on 3/01/2013 Mrs. D

Being part of the wedding industry for the past six years, I have worked with hundreds of vendors. Dawn with Edit Faces is by far my absolute Fav! She has made me Party Pretty for Holiday parties, New Year's Eve, Birthday Celebrations, Boudoir Photo Shoot...I knew when it was my... Read More turn to walk down the aisle, I had to have her. She was actually the very first vendor I reserved for my wedding (even before I had a venue). On my wedding day, she made me, my Mom, Mother - In - Law and seven bridesmaids absolutely gorgeous! It made my heart melt seeing my Mom batting her eyes all day (it was the first time she wore eyelashes). Brides can often feel like the day is all about them which it should be and I was definitely guilty of my bridezilla moments but I will never forget the way my Mom looked and they way Dawn made her feel. She was absolutely glowing and I will be forever grateful to Dawn for that life snapshot. Dawn, thank you so much for always making my visions come to life!

Made me look and feel beautiful!

I'm a very picky and particular person, especially with my makeup. I am oily and have acne-prone skin. I like a clean and natural look, and Dawn gave me just that! She did NOT load my face with makeup. She really listened to what I wanted and made me look flawless! This is a... Read More beauty no-no, but I loved my makeup so much, that I didn't wash it off the night of the wedding! I slept in it, and touched it up the next morning, and I didn't even breakout! She's prompt and a perfectionist when doing your makeup. She does on location for trials in addition to weddings. My mom has never had her makeup professionally done, and she was very nervous, but she was so happy with her overall look! She looked years younger! Dawn used to be a model, and still could be (she's gorgeous), so she knows all of the tricks of the trade. Don't look anymore! Book her ASAP because she fills up fast! I booked her in July and my wedding was in December. She had someone contact her the day of my trial about my wedding date. Thank God I snagged her when I did! I won't go to anyone else except Dawn! Thank you A MILLION TIMES thank you!!! :)

Dawn of Edit Faces was great. She was SUPER accommodating, calm and pleasant to work with. She makes you feel like a friend. She is laid back, listens to you, but also gives her professional input, without being pushy. And, above all else, the end result is phenomenal. I used... Read More her for make up and so did 4 of my bridal party. Each of us have different faces, features, eye colors and skin tones and Dawn did a great job on every single one of us. She made us look made up and special, without being overboard or too cake-y. She was also reasonably priced, professional and accommodating. I will use her again for professional make up!

Stunning Make up!

Reviewed on 2/22/2012 Jennifer T

Dawn is amazing. My photographer gave me her card and that was, by far, the best recommendation ever. I went for my trial closer to the wedding and I wanted her to just do what she does best.... no picture reference... just put make up on me that she thought best complimented my... Read More face. She delivered like crazy. My skin never looked more flawless and so natural. She ended up applying individual eyelashes on me. I was surprised at how natural they looked and they weren't uncomfortable at all. I definitely wasn't as picky with my make up as my mom. Dawn was extremely patient and responsive to my mother's *ahem* suggestions.... much to my and my mother's delight. She got everything absolutely right on the big day. Even my mom was impressed and super happy with the job she did.... definitely a big deal. I let my bridesmaids know that anyone who wanted to use Dawn's services on the wedding day was more than welcome to, they just had to let me know in advance. On the day, Dawn ended up doing mine, my mothers, my grandmother's and 3 of my bridesmaids. After a few bridesmaids were all made up, one who decided not to before saw how beautiful and flawless everyone looked, she couldn't pass up the opportunity to get hers professionally done. In her words "There's no way I can get my make up looking that perfect next to you guys :)". Dawn was more than accommodating and anyone that wanted to jump in the chair could. Even with the extra person we were ready with more than enough time to spare. I love my bridesmaids, but I have never seen them look more beautiful than they did after Dawn was finished with them. One of my other bridesmaids (who married the year before) asked me "Where was Dawn when I got married?!?". I received countless compliments throughout the night of how my make up was so beautiful and flawless. My make up lasted me through the whole day (applied at noon on the day of the wedding) all the way till I got on the plane to my honeymoon at 8am the next day. Dawn is very professional, punctual, and has a great personality (not to mention a great sense of fashion =P). I will most definitely recommend Dawn to everyone and continue to use her in the future :).

Dawn came highly recommended from our photographer. I was a little nervous because I'm very particular with my make-up but after my make-up trial I knew I had to book Dawn. And I was not disappointed. Dawn made me look absolutely beautiful! She knew what colors would look good... Read More on me and what would photograph well and everything showed perfectly through the pictures. Dawn's experience and professional showed throughout everything. My entire bridal party and mom's had their make-up done and each one of them looked amazing. She really brought out the beauty in them all. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone who needs make-up services. If I could keep her in my back pocket and have her do my make-up everyday I would!

I am very picky with makeup and I only do my own makeup, never had anyone else do it before. I was very happy with Dawn, she did an amazing job on both my trial and Wedding day. She was exactly what I was looking for. Dawn did my makeup on my wedding day along with my mom's makeup, 2 of my bridesmaids, Jr. bridesmaid and flower girl, everyone was ready on time. She is quick and does a great job! She arrives 15 mins early prior to the appointment time to prepare her stuff and is clean. She makes you feel relaxed and trust that she will do an excellent job.
