    Phenomenally Talented

    Carl Ray is a phenomenally talented artist whom I am sincerely fortunate enough to have had grace my life. One year after completing surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation for breast cancer, in addition to facial surgery for skin cancer, Mr. Ray transformed me into the beautiful bride of my dreams. This precise and exacting gentleman expertly tailored his products to my skin’s needs and personality. The trial run ensured he familiarized himself and his craft with my location, expectations and desired result prior to the big day. The consummate professional, he confirmed appointments, answered texts or e-mails promptly, arrived on time, left my house cleaner than when he arrived, and took every CDC recommended Covid precaution, and then some. Carl is also exceptionally kind and gracious. He generously took the time to touch up my 85 year old Mother’s make-up as well as that of my two sisters. His affable demeanor was a pleasure to be around, and somehow even managed to keep my Dad’s nerves in check. Carl Ray is that rare total package – insanely talented, yet without the arrogance. He is a true joy; any client lucky enough to snag him is fortunate indeed!

    Excellent make up artist

    Carl was wonderful! I’m so glad I hired him for my wedding day makeup. With COVID we have had many changes with the date and where we are getting married and decreasing the number in the bridal party and Carl was so flexible and understanding. We started early and Carl made sure I knew he was on his way and he arrived on time. He was efficient and helped us stay to our timeline. Truly a lovely human and talented makeup artist. Would definitely recommend!
