    Magic touch!

    Carl is fabulous at what he does. I think people skimp out the most on make-up because the cost of a wedding can really add up and brides think they can fix it up themselves (big mistake!), but in all honesty, you get what you pay for - and Carl is worth every single penny.

    Carl requires you to do a bridal trial which is really nice because then on the day of the wedding everything runs seamlessly. Carl did my bridal make-up as well as 5 other people in my wedding party and everyone looked amazing. He is so calm and easy to work with - he fit right in with the crowd and even put a little eyeshadow on my niece and flower girl who was watching him with adoration (so sweet, it made her day !)

    I don't wear a lot of make-up, so natural glam was really what I was looking for and he hit the nail right on the head. I was so happy to have him on my wedding weekend and I couldn't recommend him more - he has the magic touch !

    He's the BEST!

    Love Carl from the minute my daughter and I met him! Carl did my daughter's make-up for her Bridal Shower and both of us for her Wedding day. He is truly talented and we were lucky that he was available for this very special day. The make-up was impeccable beauty! He has a very calming energy and wonderful person, We loved working with him and hope to work with him again! Thank you Carl!!
