hat I wanted, however after speaking to Courtney she reassured me that hair trials are usually not exact especially if you need to add extensions, which I did. On my big day my hair was EXACTLY what I wanted and the make up completely blew me away. The girls listened to my concerns and they were able to work with me to get it how I wanted it. My bridal party was very happy with their results as well. I would highly recommend working with Courtney and her team and I would trust them time and time again. Thank you!!!

I honestly do not understand how this makeup artist has 5 stars on here. I hired her for my wedding in May (against my planner's advise - so my mistake...) because of her 5 star rating online and gorgeous portfolio. However, she was hands down ...
the worst vendor I worked with and my biggest regret from my wedding. First off, she was extremely unprofessional, difficult to communicate with, and unorganized. To summarize, she sent a different stylist than originally agreed, forgot airbrush makeup for my trial and my bridal luncheon, and then did a terrible job before dipping early on my wedding day.
When I originally booked with her, everything seemed great. She made a lot of mistakes on my quote, which should have been a red flag. But she responded quickly and we were able to work it out. I told her I wanted to do airbrush makeup and hair for me and all my bridesmaids. I paid the extra fee to have my choice of stylists because I wanted Courtney to do my makeup. We arranged to do the makeup trial while I was in Charlotte visiting my in-laws. Everything seemed good to go. Day of the trial, a very young girl shows up at my house, who is not Courtney. She was sweet, but seemed unexperienced. Also, she didn't bring airbrush makeup because Courtney didn't tell her. We went ahead anyways, because she was already there, and I live out of town, so I couldn't reschedule easily, but my makeup turned out YELLOW and my eyelashes went up to my eyebrows. I looked ridiculous.
I called Courtney the next day, almost in tears, because I was freaking out. She said she was very sorry for the miscommunication, and would do another trial with her and airbrush makeup for free. Okay, great. Maybe this will be okay, I thought. But then she calls me a week before the trial and cancels. She was planning to do my makeup for my bridal luncheon and rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, so she said we could use that as a trial. I was hesitant, but don't like to be difficult so I said okay.
So morning before the bridal luncheon she shows up WITHOUT THE AIRBRUSH MAKEUP! AGAIN! I was annoyed. The whole point was for it to last the whole day from my luncheon through the rehearsal. She said that it would with normal make-up, but of course it didn't... And now I had to go into my wedding day without a proper trial.
Day of the wedding, she showed up and did my makeup and a couple of the bridesmaids, but then she said she was dipping and an assistant would be coming to do the makeup for the other girls. Who does that? It was so shady that she never told me about that was the plan beforehand.
Two stars because thankfully her assistant ended up being a thousand times better and so sweet. She fixed my make up and everyone Courtney had done. But because we had to do half the bridesmaid's makeup twice, we fell behind schedule.
Also, two starts, because the hair stylist did a decent job, but not great. I showed her multiple pictures and tried to communicate what I wanted, but she never figured it out. My hair turned out pretty on the wedding day, but not really what I wanted.
Long story short, have yourself a massive headache and look somewhere else. Don't be fooled for the studio edited photos like I was.

lready had enough on my plate, I so appreciated them taking ownership and being so responsible on the day of the wedding.
They quickly helped me figure out who would get what done first and jumped right in to get the job done. They had my bridesmaids and me laughing and having a great time right away, but were also very professional in their job. They both did amazing work-- I've never been happier with my hair and makeup, which is saying a lot. I couldn't stop laughing once I was ready because I just felt so good about the way I had been styled. The way I described my dream look was done exactly-- I felt like a princess-- which is exactly what every girl dreams of on her wedding day. My bridesmaids and mom looked incredible too-- and they kept commenting how glad they were for getting their hair and makeup done.
It was a magical experience to have The Makeup Team at my wedding. They made it such a fun day, and I couldn't imagine it going any better. Highly, highly recommend.
