ew to love her so much! Kayla is laid back and gives you exactly what you want, whether you know how to describe what you want or not. She has done my makeup up 3 times and will do it again on my wedding day. I feel confident in knowing my makeup is something I will not have to worry about on that day. Each time we got together she went above and beyond doing more than what was required of her. She stayed each time for as long as she could, even traveling to hair appointments so that she could put finishing touches on my makeup right before I had to go. For my boudoir photos she stayed and did some body makeup, as well as helped my photographer by holding lights up, she got a work out in lol! She is truly an artist and does a wonderful job with makeup. However, what stands out to me the most is her character and dedication to making the appointment fun and relaxed. I have now recommended Kayla to everyone I know, and know that if you choose to work with TheMakeupStory you will not regret it one bit!

My eyes looked incredible, my makeup stayed on all night, and I didn’t once feel cakey or uncomfortable. She even helped cover an annoying scratch that I was so worried about- it was practically invisible. My bridesmaids all looked fantastic and she was able to work with different skin types, glasses-wearers who were nervous about false lashes, and a range of girls from makeup enthusiasts to those who don’t wear any at all. She listened to everyone’s needs! My mom and mother-in-law looked amazing as well! Added bonus- the shade of lipstick she chose for me was perfect and getting to keep it is a sweet keepsake from that day. I wore it out every night during our honeymoon.
