th me every step of the way. I showed Lauren and Kelly what I had wanted, and on our trial they nailed it first time. I recently booked them for my wedding Memorial Day weekend, and they did such a thorough and flawless job on my hair and make-up, 5 bridesmaids hair and make up, and 3 mother's hair and make-up. And we ran ahead of schedule! Lauren and Kelly did a great job not only on our hair and make up (which is hard to please that many people, much less my family), but I felt like they were part of the family. This is one of the most important vendors for a bride and I cannot stress how thankful I am to them for their diligence and artistry for helping me have my dream wedding.

I had such a great experience with Hint of Shimmer! It started with a quick search of wedding makeup/hair artists in Austin, where I was looking for someone with a fresh style and the flexibility to not stay totally "bride-y" in their choices. ...
I did my first makeup trial with Lauren and found that while I had gotten exactly the look that I had asked for (and one that looked lovely) on about 2 week's reflection (I take a while to process), it wasn't really me. The hair part of the trial was a little easier because I have very short hair and we were able to work out what little kinks there were in no time. Lauren was so patient with me and we did another trial where I was better able to talk about what I liked and didn't like. She was so accommodating and managed to find a perfect look that was both very me and very polished. They also made my bridesmaid and mother feel like royalty (seriously guys, they were so happy!).
I really felt so beautiful and the photos came out so well because the gals at Hint of Shimmer really know their business. Would absolutely recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

Which is super helpful when doing a bride, 8 bridesmaids, 2 moms, and a grandma's hair/makeup on your wedding day!
I sent Lauren some pictures of what I was thinking for my hair & makeup.. and then they went to work! They get to know you as a person which is why they do such a great job putting together a custom look. I'm so excited for our wedding day! Thank you Lauren & Kelly!

the quality you're getting. (They were not AT ALL the reason we went over budget!) I definitely recommend doing the trial hair and makeup before the wedding - I'm really picky and my face is kind of awkward to put makeup on (like I look HORRIBLE with lower eyelash mascara), and Lauren immediately picked up on all of my input. Also, because I'm lazy, I left my wedding hair and makeup on for a few days (we had brunch, after parties, etc.) - completely lasted. I danced so much I was sweating at my wedding, and the departure pictures were still perfect because my hair and makeup were perfectly intact. Going with Hint of Shimmer made my wedding day much less stressful, I knew they'd make me look beautiful and they exceeded my expectations!

It is not possible for me to have been any happier! I loved everything about my make up, the experience, and she's reasonably priced for the service she provides. I hope I am able to use her for make up services again in the near future!

Lauren was amazing to work with - she listened to everything I wanted and created the perfect look for me on my wedding day! She has a great personality and I really enjoyed both the trial and my wedding day. She also did the makeup for my m...
om, sister and niece. It was the first time my 6th grade niece was wearing real makeup and Lauren did such a great job with her. My niece was just thrilled and just kept staring in the mirror talking about how beautiful she looked... Lauren made her day! She also gave us oil blotting cloths and touchup kits for our lipstick and makeup so we could keep our look all day. Even though it was a hot summer day in Austin (and an outdoor ceremony) our airbrush makeup stayed beautiful. I'd highly recommend Lauren as your wedding makeup artist.

Lauren did such a beautiful job on my makeup for the wedding!! She also did airbrush for 4 bridesmaids, and two moms. She put on false eyelashes for everyone too!! Even the two bridesmaids that did not have their makeup done. She worked so hard...
finishing everyone's makeup ahead of schedule. She was easy to work with, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great makeup artist! She made the bridesmaids and moms look so beautiful, and she made me feel more beautiful than I have ever felt on my wedding day. Thank you Lauren!!! I would pick her in a heartbeat again for makeup, and will if I ever need makeup.

Lauren is so sweet and an amazing makeup artist. She did my makeup and the makeup for all of my bridesmaids for my wedding day. She came all the way out to the Hill Country, in the dark, at 6:00 in the morning!

king each girl's makeup match her personality. Everyone looked beautiful, but not overdone. I could tell the girls were comfortable and happy with their looks.
I did not get a chance to do a run-through with Lauren and only sent her some photos of makeup that I liked. And she did not disappoint! I have never felt so beautiful in my entire life... and I attribute a lot of that to Lauren's amazing makeup work!
Definitely go with the airbrush.
Makeup didn't run when I cried.
Looked flawless throughout the day.
But was manageable to get off when I got home (minus those eyelashes!).
I would go with Hint of Shimmer again in a heartbeat. Absolutely perfect.

Lauren was the best makeup artist I've had the experience to work with. I've been in a number of weddings and have never been as pleased with the make up as I was with the way Lauren did it. She didn't make me look over done or under done and r...
eally considered my face, my dress, my hair and the venue when she did the make up. She did a trial run and then we did make up for my bridals and the wedding and each time it was flawless. She even re-did one side of my face for my bridals (and I was still on time) because my skin a little dry. The make up stays on beautifully as well. My bridals were out side mid August (in TX which is about 100 degrees). I had sweat dripping from every part of me but the make up stayed perfectly. I did get airbrushing for that main purpose and I do believe it is worth every penny. She also did the MOG, MOB and all the bridesmaid's makeup. My mother got a lot of compliments and I though everyone looked flawless. I also liked that she made sure to ask how to do the make up for my 15 year old cousin who was also a bridesmaid, and she did age appropriate. She was professional and prompt and also great at getting back to me (or my mother) whenever we had questions. Her prices were extremely reasonable as well. She is also just a genuinely nice person.

Lauren did the make up for me and my bridal party in the smack dab middle of July heat. I was worried about two things: 1. That we were all going to melt and 2. My 14 year old daughter was going to look over done. She did AMAZING work. Everyone...

Her prices are fair and competitive to other companies in Austin. I definitely recommend her!
