    What a fun experience!

    I would highly recommend Kim to any future bridal party! She was fantastic and such a pleasure to work with. She arrived on time and was totally prepared with all of our make-up choices. I was especially looking for someone to do air-brush and Kim did an excellent job! All my girls felt like models! Kim was very easy to get along with from the consultation to the wedding day itself. I would definitely use her again if an occasion arises.

    Beautiful Makeup, Soothing Precence

    Kim was such a pleasure to work with! There were six of us total having our makeup done, and Kim brought another artist with her to ensure that we had plenty of time. From our first meeting at my trial, I could tell how knowledgable and professional she was. She was able to take a photo of the style I loved and fit it to me. She's was a calm, soothing presence the day of the wedding, as well. Kim was able to make me feel like the most beautiful version of myself on my special day. I can't recommend her enough!

    Fantastic Wedding Makeup

    I had a wedding makeup trial and wedding day makeup with Kim. I did air brush both times. Kim listened to my thoughts, discussed the pictures I pinned on pinterest for her, and went through all the options. After the trial, Kim was very accepting of my requested changes and my make up looked fantastic on wedding day.

    Day of event, Kim made me feel fantastic. She had referred back to her notes that she made at the trial and she stuck around to make sure that I was all touched up before I went out for first look photos. I had a tearful moment before and Kim touched me up since the tear streak ran through the airbrush makeup. Kim and her team did a great job. Aimee, her 2nd chair, was just as talented as Kim and she made my bridesmaids look phenomenal.

    Kim is an angel. Both Kim and hair wanted me to sit at the same time and we were having trouble figuring out timing on when to have everyone sit for hair and makeup. Kim suggested that she would email the hair vendor to discuss. This was incredibly helpful as both vendors were able to discuss their timing and were able to figure out how to work things so that I wasn't scheduled to sit for both at the same time.

    I highly recommend Kim. She is sweet, talented, and professional. Her pricing is fantastic and she was very easy to work with. If I ever need professional make up done again, and am in the area, I will definitely be reaching out again.
