Look STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL and the way you envisioned yourself to look!!!
I was SO IMPRESSED with my makeup after having Alaina Thomas of Alaina Thomas Makeup Artistry do it, I knew I had to write a review so others could look beautiful on their special day too!!! I googled makeup artists near me, and she was the first one that popped up. I called to see if I could get an appointment. Right away, I was impressed with how kind and professional she was on the phone! She was able to book me an appointment in a very timely manner.Sent on 01/22/2020
When we started our appointment, the first thing she did was ask me what I (and I emphasize I) wanted for my special day. She wanted to make sure that I would look exactly how I envisioned myself to look! She then had me look at photos of celebrities on the computer asking me what makeup I like on them and what I don’t. I told her I liked a picture of Julianne Hough’s (from Dancing with the Stars and America’s Got Talent) makeup. She then asked me to point out photos of Julianne when I didn’t like the way her makeup was done. Alaina also asked me what kind of look I was personally going for. Did I want a natural look, a bronzed look, etc. She took all of this information and used it to do my makeup exactly the way I wanted. If I suggested something that she knew was not going to be appealing, she kindly suggested how she would do it. I trusted her right away and let her work her magic.
As she did my makeup, she explained EVERYTHING to me so I could continue the look even after my special day. She explained what brushes she used and why. What colors she used and why. How she applied the makeup and why.
Alaina would stop after each step of my makeup application and have me closely look at it in the mirror. She would ask if I liked what she did so far. She wanted to know if I liked the color she chose and if it was the look I was going for. Again, she wanted to make sure that I looked EXACTLY how I envisioned myself to look on my day!
When she was done applying all of my makeup, I was STUNNED!!! I’ve never looked SO GOOD!!! This may sound vain, but I couldn’t stop looking at myself in the mirror because I LOVED the way I looked so much!!!
She told me exactly what brands, colors, brushes, cleaners, etc that she used on me so I could purchase them and continue the look after my special day. She does NOT have you buy overly priced makeup from her. In fact, she does not have you buy any makeup from her. She tells you drugstore makeup to use and high-end products you can use if that is what you want. She also tells you the websites/stores you can purchase them at. I’m on a budget so I appreciate her recommending things that still look FANTASTIC AND I can afford!
If you want to look absolutely gorgeous on your wedding day, then call Alaina of Alaina Thomas Makeup Artistry!!! If you want to have a makeup artist who is kind, professional, and extremely skilled at what she does, call Alaina! I am not the type of person to write reviews, but I was so IMPRESSED with her that I HAD to write this review! I want everyone to be as HAPPY and feel as BEAUTIFUL as I did on my special day! THANK YOU SO MUCH ALAINA!!! From your VERY satisfied client, Pam

I worked with Alaina on a few weddings and she is a true artist with her makeup brushes. She makes everyone so beautiful. She can do minimal looks and more dramatic looks as well! She is so sweet, she was such a pleasure to be around.
