I was so excited to work with Linda for our 7/16/16 wedding. All of my interactions with her were positive from start to finish. We met several months prior to our event for the trial where I showed Linda photos of "looks" I liked and we discussed my preferences in depth. We tried a few different things and the final look she came up with after our discussion was beautiful! The morning of our wedding, Linda showed up early and ready to go! She was so fun and professional, even early in the morning. She ran on time and was able to complete everyone on time (9-10 girls). So many people that do make up overdo the look and cake on foundation, eyes, etc so that it looks heavy. No one in our wedding were looking for that--we wanted to highlight certain features and look natural. Linda did exactly that, and everyone from my bridesmaids to the mothers looked stunning! I was so pleased with how my make up came together as well. She even helped airbrush a few remaining tan lines I had to help them not be so apparent in my strapless dress. Linda is truly an artist. Everyone was so excited with their final look! I would recommend Linda to anyone without hesitation and would use her again myself! Thank you so much for being a part of our big day!
I am so happy I chose Linda for my wedding day makeup. She was so easy to work with and made me look so beautiful on my big day. She also did makeup for my mother, my mother-in-law and a couple other family members and they all looked amazing. As I was getting my makeup done that morning, one of my girlfriends got her information and has already booked her for her wedding later this year. Linda is not only professional and so pleasant to work with, but also very talented and really listens to what you want. Thank you Linda for making me feel so beautiful on my wedding day!!!! I LOVED my wedding day makeup!!
Linda provided makeup services for myself, 3 bridesmaids and my mother. From the initial discussions-she was unavailable for my wedding day initially to the pre trial and then the day of Linda provided prompt replies and professional assistance. The pretrial was helpful in deciding exactly what style of makeup I wanted without straying far from what works for me. We discussed color palates and how certain makeup would wear throughout the day- I very much appreciated her honesty and experience. The day of she arrived on time and was ready to go- all of my girls loved being pampered and appreciated how laid back she is. I would recommend her services to anyone!
Linda is the BEST!! She came to the condo we rented on time (being on time is HUGE), she made everyone look and feel their most beautiful, and she was the utmost professional! We ran according to schedule, she carries amazing products, and the makeup lasted all night long! Everyone received compliments on how beautiful they looked!! As the bride, I felt the "pickiest." She appreciated my honesty and feedback. I used a lot of my own products and she was not offended in the slightest. I looked and felt the most beautiful! And, I feel like I have gained a new friend! She is such a warm and kind person- I am lucky to have found her!!
Linda is a fabulous makeup artist, and did an amazing job for the entire wedding party at our son's wedding!!! She did 13 of us-- the bride, 10 bridesmaids, and 2 mothers! She airbrushed and put fake eyelashes on all of us, within the time frame that we needed to be done by! I am the mother of the groom, and she did my makeup so beautifully-I loved it - and it lasted all day and night without me having to worry about touching it up! My daughter-in-law, daughters, and all of the girls and mother of the bride looked soo beautiful! I was so impressed! I would recommend her to any bride because she does incredible work and is truly a talented makeup artist!
I found Faces by Linda G for my daughter, Elizabeth's wedding by checking out websites and reviews. We liked what we saw on her website. Scheduled a makeup session for a trial makeup application for Elizabeth's engagement photo session. Elizabeth brought pictures she liked. Elizabeth wears very little makeup but she wanted a more dressed up look but still feeling she looked like herself. First meeting with Linda was wonderful. We learned so much about makeup for special occasions and for photography. She was able to give Elizabeth two looks that day. One was a little more dressy for engagement pictures and one for her wedding day! I could not stop staring at my daughter. She looked like herself but you could now picture her on her wedding day. Linda was a joy to work with because she often knew what we wanted before we did. Showed a few pictures and got everything we could have hoped for the future bride! The appointment for engagement photos was made (2 actually as one got rained out). The day of shoot was a very warm fall day, outside in heavier clothing! They got wonderful pictures. Elizabeth was amazingly beautiful and natural looking despite the heat! At the end of photo session Elizabeth hugged her fiancé. He was in a white t-shirt at the time. Not one bit of makeup rubbed off on his shirt. There are many great pictures from that session but there is one closeup of Elizabeth that takes your breath away. Very natural and amazing! Linda nailed it with her recommendations on type of makeup Elizabeth should wear and how it would photograph not to mention last! Definitely happy we scheduled Linda for the wedding after our first visit. Elizabeth and I then scheduled a makeup lesson for each of us. I have not changed my makeup in many, many years and Elizabeth needed a few makeup tricks for a night out. We learned so much during those lessons. We were never rushed and she answered a million questions. We plan to go back for another lesson as one lesson gave us enough to practice but we need to fine tune what we learned. That brings us to Elizabeth's wedding day. Linda beat us all to the site and was set up and ready to go the second we arrived. She had 7 other people to do before she did Elizabeth. She timed it perfectly. Saved Elizabeth for last with a well protected block of time. No rushing. It was a warm, humid day. Outdoor wedding and reception. Elizabeth's wedding makeup was beautiful. She looked fresh and natural. She had the extra special look a bride should have. She was standout beautiful yet still looked like the Elizabeth we all knew. Their pictures from the wedding are amazing. The makeup lasted entire night. Even through pictures in the rain! I can't say enough about Faces by Linda G. I would encourage everyone spend the time to have a trial look done. I was also pleased to have an idea of what an updated version of me would be like on my daughter's wedding day. As mother of the bride I felt the need for an updated look and less worry about all the details. Never thought twice about makeup once Linda came on board. Everyone that got their make up done loved it. She was very reasonable too. Very accommodating! She was relaxed and handled the chaos in the bridal suite with such grace. She did not miss anything anyone wanted. She made everyone feel their iisession was special. They were able to relax and enjoy their moment. I can't recommend her enough! Thank-you Linda. A memorable experience.
Linda did great! On my wedding day, she was on time & very professional. We had about 8/9 people and, I had a schedule written out and we tried to stick to it as best we could. I was worried we were going to run late but we were actually really early! Not only does she do amazing makeup she is fast. Linda listened to all mine and my bridal parties wants and needs she she perfected all of them! I would stop your looking now and book your wedding makeup with Linda. Again I can't say enough great things about her!
I was a bridesmaid in Sara Otto's wedding, and Linda did such an amazing job on 10 girls! Everyone looked so amazing! I would definitely look to Linda for my wedding, too!!
So I am the bride that really doesn't like wearing makeup, but knows for your wedding day it's really essential. Linda and I worked together for almost 2 years up until our wedding day to talk about what I wanted for myself and the bridal party. I had never met Linda before as we recently moved to Colorado, but my oh my was she a dream to work with over email/phone. Linda did a trial of makeup the day before my wedding for the Rehearsal, she arrived early, was ready to go and asked me questions about what I wanted as a bride. My makeup was literally perfect. I wanted light airbrush, and I wanted to look natural, with my freckles coming through. It was important to me that I looked like myself for my soon to be husband. On the day of my wedding it was even better. All of my bridal party wanted their makeup done, and they wanted airbrush. All of our makeup came out perfect, even the moms involved. Thank you again Linda for your kind demeanor and your beautiful art. It was such a pleasure working with you.
Let me start off by first saying, Linda is one of the most organized, supportive, and stress-relieving vendors to work with. Make-up was the ONLY thing during my wedding I truly did not need to worry about at all because she made everything so easy. She is extremely professional, honest, reliable, and super down to Earth. Linda contacted me months before the wedding (July 3, 2016) to get an idea of what each woman looked like, what kind of make-up each woman desired, and she created a timeline with the order of who should get their make-up done at what time. She explained her reasoning behind why each woman should go at their designated time slot (bride at a certain time to be ready for the photographer, women with darker eye make up to take up bigger time slots, etc.) She ran my make-up trial at my bridal shower. I had so many compliments from family, friends, and I of course loved it. I was looking for an airbrushed natural look, nothing too crazy but I was pretty set on making sure my eyelashes looked super long and helped my eyes "pop." She did exactly that and offered a wide array of lashes to choose from with her own recommendations of what would be best for my eye shape/desired look. It was so helpful, especially in a time when I felt like making decisions was wearing me out. She truly did everything she could to make sure the day of the wedding would go according to plan. She scoped out our suite at the hotel to figure out what part of the room had the best lighting & went over the timeline & desired looks with me to reconfirm that everything was correct. As for the day of the wedding, well let me preface by saying I had a huge, and I mean HUGE, wedding party. There were TEN bridesmaids, TWO mothers, an aunt, and myself that needed our make up done....fourteen women within a 9 and a half hour time frame (5:30 am-3:00 p.m.) That may sound like a lot of time, but trust me IT IS NOT. Think about the fact that the day of the wedding you have break outs to cover up, people stopping you from doing make-up to take pictures, eating, & last minute to-dos. Not only did she work well with her time frame, she drove from Michigan to Illinois for my wedding! In her allotted time frame, she was able to airbrush all of the women and even did lashes on them. Everyone felt so beautiful and women were taking tons of pictures of themselves. It is a serious mood lifter when everything goes well and your bridal party looks flawless. Linda was promptly at our hotel suite by 5:30 am to start make-up and worked straight through to 3:00 p.m. and the whole time she was very focused and meticulous. If you are looking for a super sweet woman to work with that will make you feel beautiful on your special day, then Linda is definitely someone you should be reaching out to.
Linda was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took into account my make up preferences and walked me through my options. I loved how I looked at the end of the day, and my bridesmaids looked stellar too! I contacted Linda only a few months before my wedding, after I had been unhappy with a different make up artists' pre-wedding consultation, and she luckily had a rare opening. She is convenient and offered superb on-site services. It was such a relief not to travel to a salon on my wedding day.
Linda is very talented. She made my wedding very special. I would recommend her to anyone. If you want an amazing makeup artist she is it!
Simply Wonderful!Reviewed on 10/19/2015 Sarah H
Linda was an absolute delight to work with from emailing and arranging details to her lovely personality during the makeup trial and wedding. The airbrush make up turned out so natural and overall the look was exactly what I wanted. She did a great job listening to each of us and each of my bridal party and family loved her work. We loved her so much we just hired her for my sister's wedding - definitely recommend!:)
As a mother of the bride, I can assure you, choosing Linda as your Wedding makeup Artist will be a gift to both you and your daughter. Linda is a true professional. She not only a talented makeup artist, she is calm, genuine, timely, a great communicator, and flexible. Both of my daughters were married within 8 months of each other last year. Linda was so wonderful to work with at our first daughter's wedding, I made sure I could book Linda for our 2nd daughter's wedding. Linda earned my highest recommendation.
Makeup was Beautiful!!!!Reviewed on 10/07/2015 Christopher H
Faces by Linda did an wonderful job making me and my bridesmaids so beautiful on my wedding day!! Linda was on time and well prepared. Her prices were great. She was polite to my entire wedding party. My only issue with her was that she was the only one applying makeup so one bridesmaid was not able to received makeup from her and this caused me to stress, there were 7 girls. We started makeup at 0730 and I was finished at 1pm, there was not enough time. However I would highly recommend her!! The pictures turned out beautifully !!

Linda is amazing!!! Highly recommend!Reviewed on 10/05/2015 Camilla A
I first met Linda when my maid of honor and I went to her house for my makeup trial. From the very first time meeting her until the end of the wedding when we said goodbye she was nothing but kind and very attentive. Linda really is an artist, her makeup is beautiful. She made me and all my girls feel very relaxed on the wedding day because we knew we were in good hands! For just meeting the girls on the wedding day, Linda still took the time to get to know each one and how they wanted their makeup done. My goal for the wedding was for all my girls, especially my mom and mother-in-law, to just look naturally beautiful and have makeup that didn't look fake. Every single one of them looked like themselves, just flawless! Makeup is one thing that can truly make your photos look bad if done wrong. Linda knows exactly how to work your makeup so that your photos look great. I would highly recommend her and would definetly use her again. Also, do the airbrushing! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Linda!! :) - Camilla Kadish

Linda did such a great job on my wedding make up. She's so nice and easy to work with and not to mention affordable. You won't be disappointed with your makeup in the hands of Linda on your special day!
I cannot say enough about how happy I am to have chosen Linda for our wedding makeup. Most importantly, she is warm, friendly, and fun to be around, but she is also phenomenal at what she does. As a bride, I was so incredibly happy with how my makeup turned out at both the trial, and on the day of. Each of the bridesmaids/moms who had their makeup done were equally as happy with their results. Linda is organized, professional, and puts a lot of thought into personalizing your makeup how you would like. Additionally, our wedding happened to take place on a 90 degree day and not one person had a problem with their makeup. I would highly recommend FACES by Linda G to any bride. Thanks again, Linda! I'm so happy you were a part of our day!
I was so happy with my wedding makeup - Linda did a fantastic job! She was so easy to work with throughout the entire process. The bridal trial was a great way to try out a look and she was incredibly open to changing aspects of the makeup if you're uncomfortable with them. She even let me bring my own palette so she could use the colors I normally wear. The airbrush and false lashes are a must - they photograph beautifully! Could not have been happier with my wedding day look - I highly recommend Linda!
Amazing!Reviewed on 5/24/2015 Kaitlyn B
Not only is Linda so sweet and a great conversationalist - her work speaks for itself! She worked so hard to make sure every person in my wedding party had the exact look they were going for. She used only premium products and was very knowledgeable. I am so grateful I found her since she travels and is so reasonable.
Flawless & Timeless MakeupReviewed on 4/10/2015 Amanda S
Linda was a pleasure to work with! She did my makeup (the bride), my mother's, and all my bridesmaids. She did a fabulous job!! I had the airbrush makeup and I loved it! Linda listens to what each individual wants and makes sure you love your makeup before she lets you leave the chair. She was so easy to work with and travels to wherever you need her for your big day! Her prices are very reasonable and competitive! We were all very pleased with our makeup applications!
A True Makeup ArtistReviewed on 3/26/2015
My daughter got married on 03/21/2015 and Linda did makeup for 7 women! She made each of us look so beautiful.

Linda did an amazing job! She was a professional from my first phone call, keeping me informed and working well with my crazy wedding and work schedules. My makeup looked natural and made me feel like a million dollars. Several people mentioned how good my makeup looked through out the night and i look AMAZING in my photos. I would highly recommend Linda. It's worth the extra money to not have to worry about your makeup on your wedding day!
Mother of the groomReviewed on 10/27/2014
I used Faces by LindaG/makeup Artist for my son's wedding. I really appreciated Linda's professional attitude. Linda put me at ease, I do not like to look "made up". The make up turned out wonderful! Linda was so willing to help us out. she drove to my house for my daughter, mother, and I. Linda is very patient and willing to work with our wants and needs. Linda is also very pleasant and upbeat. Linda stays calm in what can be a stressful and exciting time! We also used Linda's services the summer before for my daughter's wedding. she applied makeup to 9 women that day. the results were stunning! Linda finished everyone on time and they were all beautiful! I would use Linda again for any special occasion!
