Perfect Day -- Gorgeous Girls! :)

I cannot say thank you enough to Meggan for doing such a fabulous job on my wedding day!! On the morning of the wedding, Meggan showed up a little before schedule to allow time for unloading and setup. We started right on time (which was really important for me that day because... Read More we were on a time crunch). She did makeup for me, my MOH, 4 bridesmaids and my mom. Not only did we all look gorgeous, but we also looked like our natural selves. Meggan used the airbrush technique and we all loved it! It stayed on all night, and, contrary to what you might think, it was really easy to take off. In addition to the wedding, Meggan did makeup for my engagement pictures and my bridal portraits. She has traveled to my house every time, making it really convenient to be in the comfort of my own home and not having to travel back home to finish getting ready. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend Meggan! She is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met and really listens to what you want. THANK YOU MEGGAN for making me feel and look beautiful - I can't wait for you to do my makeup again! :)

This company came very highly recommended but turned my daughter's wedding day into a total disaster. For 6 faces, she took 6 hours. My daughter's limo had to leave her and her bridesmaids scrambling for transportation. She showed up without an assistant which was included in... Read More the contract, along with a finishing time for 3:00. She was an hour over. My daughter was in tears, arriving for her photos an hour late, causing the reception to get started 1 1/2 hour late because so many of the formal pics had to be taken after the ceremony. My daughter's beautiful day was ruined. Nothing can make up for this. Nothing. When I complained to the owner, there was total disregard for what happened stating that (my daughter) said she was happy with her make up. She did not even get that this one service had a domino affect and totally ruined a day my daughter planned and anticipated for 2 years. Disgusting! (I am the brides mother, I paid A LOT of money for this service .. $10 more per face than the going rates).
