Kevan was a delight to work with and I can't recommend her more highly. I don't usually wear a lot of makeup, and I was really concerned about looking like a clown with a bunch of caked-on foundation on my wedding day. Kevan completely dispelle...
d those fears.
I initially reached out to Kevan because she'd done wedding makeup for one of my friends. Every bride is beautiful, of course, but I remembered thinking "damn, her makeup looks amazing" during that friend's wedding -- it perfectly enhanced/complimented her features and she looked stunning. When I got engaged, I asked her for Kevan's info, and I'm so glad I did!
During my makeup trial, Kevan listened carefully to what I wanted, executed exactly that, and made minor adjustments cheerfully when I asked for them (adding a little shimmer to the eye shadow, lightening up the brows). Her style is really natural and romantic, which is exactly what I was looking for. I ended up deciding to go a little heavier on my actual wedding makeup and asked her if we needed to have another trial; she offered to layer up gradually on the day of, saving me a second trial, which was great.
On the big day, my wedding makeup came out perfectly and I couldn't be happier. It didn't budge an inch, and I've never felt more beautiful in my life. Kevan also did a fantastic job on my bridesmaids' makeup -- they all looked gorgeous and were really happy with the results. Kevan is easy to talk to and a cheerful, calming presence, which is exactly what we needed on the wedding morning!
As an added bonus, Kevan is super detail-oriented. She came up with a schedule for when each of us would get our makeup and hair done, which kept the morning running smoothly. She also provided me with my lip color for touch-ups in the cutest little keepsake bag, and taught me a technique for holding a tissue to dab at any escaping tears during the wedding ceremony. She really went above and beyond and I'm so appreciative.
The only minor difficulty I had was in communicating with her via email, since my gmail would sporadically decide that her emails were spam and they'd wind up in my junk folder. I only mention this as a helpful tip -- make sure to check your junk mail, if you think you've missed a reply from her! I don't blame Kevan for this at all; it's really just an annoying email artifact.
Overall, Kevan was an absolute pleasure to work with and I'd hire her again in a heartbeat!
