Evelyn and her team were amazing. We cannot thank them enough. Evelyn was very professional this whole time working with her she has answered any of the questions I had for her. The day of my wedding we were all very nervous but Evelyn and her team contributed to the most amazing experience ever. They were personalable and so much fun while getting ready for our big day. We cannot thank you enough for making our day as amazing as it was. We appreciate it more than you know! If you have the opportunity to use her I highly recommend her for sure. :)Sent on 10/20/2017

Evelyn came very highly recommended to me and I am so glad that I went with her for my wedding makeup! She is nice and personable and makes you feel so comfortable. She really listens and is willing to accommodate you and your personal style/ comfort level. She's professional, helpful and really pays attention to your skin type and offers her professional advice to help you look your best. I don't wear a lot of makeup regularly and she was able to make me look great without looking completely different from my regular self. I have never felt more perfect in my own skin then I did on my wedding day!Sent on 09/10/2017
