Grace and her team were courteous and professional. The quality of Grace's work is excellent. My bridal party and I received many compliments on our hairstyles and makeup. My elegant updo complemented not only my wedding gown but also my Chinese Chi Pao as well as another evening gown. The team did their best to accommodate all of our requests and made us all look beautiful :) What impressed me the most was the fact that our makeup and hair lasted throughout the day rather nicely.
Grace Lin's entire team did a great job during my (2) trials & most importantly, on my wedding day.
My mom & I did our initial trials a few months out. After taking some pictures at home, I realized that although my hair & make-up looked great, it just wasn't what I wanted on my wedding day. So we scheduled a second trial, and I did a lot more homework & studying of what style I really wanted to see in my pictures (my primary concern was that my make-up was fading after a few hours, primarily because it was so hot & it's hard to not sweat & wipe away). Second trial was on point beyond words! My hair was voluminous and my make-up definitely stayed 'heavy' (dark I guess I should say) the entire day - it was perfect.
My look was recreated on the wedding day itself, and they did an amazing job with all my ladies and even the men. The boys really needed that matte effect, as with 100+ degree weather, it was just not going to be good if they were super oily and sweaty just walking down the aisle. Both mom's looked radiant & young, and my girls' eye make-up made me want to try to recreate it at home too!
Have confidence that this team shows up on time, works on schedule, and really listen to what YOU want!
Grace is very easy going and friendly and very respect customers' opinions. She is great and makes me look like a princess in my wedding. I sincerely recommend Grace to everyone.
Thank you Grace Lin and Team for doing an awesome job on my wedding day!!! They not only made all of us girls feel beautiful, they even made the extra effort of trying to calm me down when I was anxious. Lisa was prompt and efficient on my bridesmaids and Grace arrived earlier than planned so we had more than enough time to finish up. Grace is very professional at what she does, but at the same time is very easy to talk to like a friend. We were chatting through out the whole get-ready process, it felt like her team was part of my wedding party. I am so glad I changed my wedding date to accommodate her busy schedule! To future brides out there, if you want to book her or her team, do so AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. She gets fully booked very fast.
Grace did a fantastic job on the makeup for both my mom and I. She was able to transform our looks without putting too much of makeup; my mom LOVED how she looked in the photos - natural yet beautiful. From the first time we talked on the phone 'til the wedding day, she was very attentive, patient, and cares about meeting the needs of her clients - who she treated more like her friends. We had a minor misunderstanding and Grace handled quickly and professionally. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family! Thank you so much!!! Job well done Grace!!!
Grace and her team were wonderful. They were prompt and professional. Her makeup is natural and lasts all day. Got so many compliments on my eyes and hair. Many many thanks for Grace and her team!
I needed a hair and makeup artist for my wedding so after many researching, i finally found Grace Lin and her team. I was assigned to have one of her team leads to do my hair and makeup, her name is Irene.
Before I get into the makeup and hair, I wanted to compliment Grace and her professionalism. She was very responsible which I love. One minute I send her an email, few minutes later I get a response from her. EXCELLENT! As you know, brides don't have much time to wait around -- and Grace just answered all my questions within the day. I don't think i need to wait for a day later for her email. Grace also helped me with the scheduling for the day so that I can be ready on time.
During the trial session, I had brought pictures of hair styles of how i wanted to look. Irene looked at it and recreated the style I want. And I was very pleased with the look. The makeup she did for me was excellent. I wanted her to keep it natural looking and she did. I loved my makeup and hair.
On the wedding day, Irene was responsible to do my make up and hair, along with my maid of honor's hair & makeup. Irene also worked on my mom's hair as well. Irene did an excellent job -- i highly recommend her.
And we had two other stylists (Lisa and Tamie) to do my bridesmaids' hair and makeup. Lisa did a great job on both hair and makeup. However, I wasn't too sure about Tamie. She did a great job, but I thought she did a little too heavy on the makeup for my bridesmaids. Wasn't as natural looking as I wanted to be. But in the end it still looked great.
There was one downfall, I wished I had an extra stylist to do the bridesmaid's hair and makeup because the makeup and hair took a little longer than we all wanted. I had told Grace I wanted to be ready by a certain time. We ended up being late for taking pictures with the bridal party. It wasn't too big of a problem since I was still in schedule, but the feeling of "oh no, i'm late" was in my mind the whole time. And i didn't like having the feeling on my wedding day.
Other than that, everything was great. I really love Irene. She is excellent! Overall, Grace Lin Professional Makeup Team was great. The pricing for the packages were good. I suggest you go to their website and check out the packages that they have to offer - i personally think it's the best deal out of all the researches I've done.
BRIDES!! I know there are several things that need to get done before your wedding day...and making sure you have a great hair and makup team is a MUST! No matter what happens on the wedding day...EVERYONE will be looking at you!
I'm so happy I found Grace Lin and her amazing team - Crystal! First off, Grace was so professional and quick in ALL of my emails. I think I even emailed her at midnight one time, and she responded back within minutes! With all of the crazy things involved in a wedding, having someone that is so quick in their responses is a MUST! so THANK YOU Grace for that! Also, Grace's prices are GREAT! They have to be one of the best priced hair and makeup teams out there! TOTALLY AFFORDABLE and WORTH EVERY PENNIE!
So...my hair and makeup was done by Crystal, one of Grace's lead stylist! She was everything that I could have asked for and MORE! She listened to everything that I wanted during my trial and on the wedding day, it was BEYOND PERFECT!!!! One of my biggest fears for my wedding was that I was going to look like someone just caked on layers of makeup on my face! I told Crystal my concerns and she applied just the right amount that really highlighted my natural beauty. And I know everyone is suppose to tell you that you look great on your wedding day...but believe me...my biggest critic is my fiance/husband. He'll always tell me when I look ugly or if someone is just not right. But from the moment he saw me, he was in shock. He thought I looked AMAZING!!! Thank you CRYSTAL!!! My hair was perfect. My makeup looked flawless!!
THANK YOU AGAIN GRACE AND CRYSTAL for such an amazing experience and helping me make my wedding so special! BRIDES...if you're looking for a great hair and makeup artist that will listen to you and give you everything that you wanted...CHOOSE GRACE and CRYSTAL!!!
Grace Lin and her team did my my hair and makeup for my wedding and I could not be happier!!! Grace was AMAZING and I felt the prettiest I've EVER felt in my life! She is so talented - she knows exactly how to highlight your features and enhance you, without caking on tons of makeup. I normally don't wear heavy makeup and even on my wedding day, my makeup felt very light. My wedding ceremony and reception were both outdoors in the middle of July but my hair and makeup stayed on flawlessly all day long.
I absolutely loved the hair also - the theme of my wedding was French country so she gave me side swept bangs with some small braids and a side bun. I also accessorized with little flowers and a birdcage veil. I received SO many compliments on my hair & makeup during and after the wedding :) My hair and makeup complimented my dress perfectly.
She and her team also serviced 8 other ladies in my wedding party - 4 bridesmaids, 3 mothers, and 1 sister. Everyone looked fabulous and we were all so happy! Grace's team came early and finished on time for our photo shoot.
Her prices were very reasonable as well, especially since I bought a package for all the bridesmaids and immediate family members. It was money very well spent!
Starting from our trial session, I connected with her immediately and she made me feel very comfortable. She was very responsive to all my emails and I felt like I was really taken care of. It was such a pleasure working with her and her team and I HIGHLY recommend Grace to any soon to be bride!
I'm very glad I chose Grace's make up team for my big day. Grace is a VERY experienced make up artist. I mostly communicated with Grace through email, she is very fast at responding to any questions or concerns that I may have had. She assures you that you will be a beautiful bride. =)
Her team did my make up, 4 bridesmaids and 2 moms during my wedding day. . We started at 9:30am and everyone was finished by 1:30pm. They arrived on time and stayed according to the timeline. If you book with Grace, you will have one free trial session to go over what kind of hair and make-up you would like to have on your wedding day.
I received many compliments during and after my wedding. She knows what looks good! Grace listened to any concerned I may have. Grace made me look beautiful but still myself.
You should visit her website and look at the before and after pictures, her work is amazing! I would definitely recommend any bride to go with Grace.
I had Grace and her team to work on the bridal party's makeup on my wedding date 6/16/12. The team is extremely professional, friendly, easy to work with, and most importantly.. FUN!!! The make-up was very natural and I loved the hair styles. One of my friends were telling me that my make-up was the BEST one among all the weddings that she've seen so far. The team arrived at the venue on time despite that they had to get up at 3am for another project in the same day and finished everyone's make-up ahead of schedule. The make-ups were done on a very professional manner with NO delays! The energy level in the bridal room was very positive, stress-free and I can tell everyone were having fun (i mean.. everyone in the room, not just me, but also the G.L. team and my bridal party)! I was a very satisfied bride and I am glad that I had Grace, Michelle and Cece :)
Thanks very much to Grace, Michelle and Irene. Guests liked both my hairdo and the makeup. I will definitely recommend Grace Lin to my friends!!
I was lucky enough to hire Grace Lin and her team artist to do both my wedding day makeup and engagement photo makeup. Grace did my engagement and Irene did my wedding day makeup. I loved both makeup. I felt beautiful yet I was able to recognize myself when I looked in the mirror. They kept everything looking very natural. I didn't have a bunch of makeup masked onto my face. I sweated all day and was crying here and there...my makeup was still on with no smudge. I was so sad when I had to wash off all my makeup and undo my hair at the end of the night. Also my maid of honor and my mom looked very beautiful too. They are both very nice girls and lovely to work with. I can't wait to see Grace again at my friend's wedding in October. My friend hired her based on my wonderful experience with Grace.
Good Service, good communication, very organized, Grace made me look stunning on my wedding.
I'm happy to have Irene to work on my make up and hair on my big day~
I had the pleasure of having Grace Lin's makeup artists work on myself and my bridal party for my wedding day. She came highly recommended by so many people I know! I knew I made the right choice once I got in contact with her and found out she had an available artist on my wedding day.
Grace is a joy to work with and seriously does everything she can to ensure you are a happy bride. She welcomes your feedback and provides comments to best compliment your facial features and style. She is best reached by email and responds quickly.
I was also able to borrow accessories to use for my wedding day. She saved me from additional stress of finding a veil and necklace to go with my wedding gown. Thanks so much for offering accessories with your bridal packages.
On my wedding day:
My makeup artist was Michelle Lin and an assistant artist CeCe. Both girls arrived at our hotel on time and began to work on us after setting up. Everything went so well and my entire bridal party loved their makeup and hair. Even my mother-in-law was happy with her makeup.
I booked the All Day Package with them, and the girls truly are your lifesavers for the entire night! I don't know what I would've done without them. Thank you so much Michelle and CeCe for being there to give me touch-ups through the entire day. They saved me from the crazy outdoor winds and helped me with my 3 outfit changes during the reception.
Thank you girls so much for your professionalism, friendly attitude, and always keeping a smile. I hope you enjoyed our wedding as much as we did.
I will be recommending Grace Lin and her team of makeup artists to all future brides. You won't regret your decision.
