Words cannot describe how happy I was to have Thuy there on my wedding day. Three things make her amazing:
1) her makeup skills -- she is so precise , careful, and intricate with her work and makes me feel so beautiful. I asked for natural mak...
eup but wanted it to be enough to stand out in pictures. She knew right away exactly what to do and I just love the way my makeup looked for BOTH my engagement photos in march 2021 and my wedding photos in August 2021. Her skill is proof that hard work pays off.
She also did a fantastic job on my entire wedding party and family members. I 100% knew Thuy would kill it but somehow she still exceeded my expectations.
2)Her professionalism. She is reliable, flexiable, and fast with responding whether it be text or email. And she is SO PREPARED!!! She has a timeline for each person getting makeup done to ensure she meets the time requirement. She even brings her own makeup chair to your venue to ensure she has all the proper equipment to do her best job
3) her sweet / caring / easygoing personality. She made me feel so much calmer on such a monumental and stressful day. When I met her and got to know her, I gained a feeling of reassurance. I knew I was going to be in really good hands for my wedding day, and I was absolutely right!
100% i would be honored to have Thuy do my makeup again in the future for special events. She is amazing and I highly recommend all brides hire her for your makeup

so hated the look that I came home with after my trial. LUCKILY, we found Thuy! We scheduled a trial with her and she absolutely nailed it right off the bat. I'm not an everyday makeup wearer, so I asked Thuy for a natural look with a "not too bold" lipstick shade. Not only did she get it right, the lip shade she chose was perfect! I also booked her for my four bridesmaids and even my mom. We had a traditional Vietnamese morning tea ceremony on our wedding day, so we started at 4am! She was on time and showed up with a smile, fun conversation, great attitude, an awesome playlist, and glammed everyone up! My makeup lasted all day and through the night.

Even though my blow dryer broke and I was running behind, it did not fluster Thuy and she was able to make me feel great with beautiful make up for our wedding day which entailed a lot of rain, by the way.
