Beautiful Make Up for a non-makeup wearing bridal party!

Carrie is amazing! Most of my bridal party wears very little to zero makeup. We were all really nervous about getting our makeup done/not looking like ourselves. Carrie is a wizard! Her focus on skincare is amazing, and we all ended up looking like a beautiful version of ourselves. I would recommend Carrie to anyone!

LADIES! This is your girl!

I cannot express how impressed I am with this woman! She is professional, talented and one of the sweetest people I've ever met. She was with me 6 hours! 6! She did both my hair and make up for my elopement in Napa, CA. Planning a destination wedding is hard enough and Carrie made this day so easy. She sent a very detailed email several days prior to my wedding which helped me prepare for my big day. Her attention to detail is stellar! She made me feel beautiful on my big day. I would highly recommend Carrie to anyone!

Wonderful experience!

Carrie is EVERYTHING you would want in a makeup artist for your special day. During our first phone call, she asked me so many questions about what I was looking for and the vibe I wanted. She had me make a private Pinterest for hair and make up inspiration so that we were both on the same page and she was so reassuring and a calming force through all the stress of planning a wedding.

During the trial, Carrie took the time to discuss what she was doing and it was such wonderful way to get to know each other. She made sure to ask what I thought about everything and made changes when needed so that at the end of the trial I felt like everything was absolutely perfect. She was extremely knowledgable about skin, makeup, and hair and she was able to share with me so many tips. I wanted to make sure I did not look “cakey” and she made me look dewey, fresh, and natural in the most amazing way.

The day of the wedding Carrie showed up just as excited as I was to be able to share the day with me. She kept the energy high and fun but was also there to calm me and make sure I was taking in every moment. Everything went perfectly as planned and she even followed me to the venue for last minute touch ups. Carrie seriously made me feel so special and went above and beyond throughout the whole process. She was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding and I am so grateful to have found her!

Carrie has done my make-up as well as friends. She is excellent at her craft and I felt like a million bucks after she was done with my transformation! It is so much fun to sit in her chair, relax and chat. She is such a lovely and professional woman!
