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! :)

Best Makeup I've Ever Had!!

Reviewed on 6/18/2014 Molly M

I recently had a destination wedding in New Orleans and hired most of my wedding vendors through word of mouth referrals. I must say, choosing Meggan for my and my wedding party's makeup was the best of them all. She was highly professional, sweet and very talented. She... Read More was great at communicating with me via email throughout our year long planning. During my trial I had misplaced the visuals I brought to show her what I wanted for my makeup. All I had to do was show her one photo and use a couple adjectives and it was as if she could read my mind. She did exactly what I wanted! On the day of, my makeup was done early in the morning and it lasted until the bitter end (too late in the night to admit!) despite all of the humidity, eating, dancing and many hours. She also did the makeup for my five bridesmaids and both my mother and future mother in law. Each of my bridesmaids were blown away with how beautiful they looked and despite not being people that wear makeup typically, they said they never felt too "made-up." My mothers had never had their makeup professionally done and both raved about how sweet Meggan and her assistant were and how impressed they were with their results. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants a no-fuss, highly talented makeup artist for their Big Day!
