Where do I even begin?! Desiree and April are gems! If you are looking for a really talented, hardworking, fun team, these are your girls!!
I really have never felt so beautiful as I did on my wedding day, in large part because of these two! I have very fine, thin hair and the updo April was able to achieve blew my mind. And I don't usually wear a lot of makeup, so the eyebrows and lips made me nervous, but Desiree did an incredible job putting me at ease and showing me that I can wear makeup and look amazing in it. These girls are artists! My look was flawless! Everything was clean and classy and natural. And, both my hair and makeup held strong through to the after party!
On top of the hair and makeup being beautiful, April and Desiree were accommodating, punctual, and super hard working. April came to my apartment for my hair trial, which I was very impressed by and which was super convenient for me. And on the day of my wedding I was so comfortable working with both of them - it was like having two more of my girlfriends in my bridal suite.
Look no further ladies! Book these girls immediately!

I hired Desiree to do the makeup of myself (bridesmaid), the mother of the bride, and two other bridesmaids for my sister's wedding and I don't think it could possibly have gone any better. This was incredibly important to me because it was my sister's wedding -- those photos are going to be around forever!
If I could have Desiree do my makeup every singe day, I would. Her makeup was beautifully applied and I got compliments that I looked like an "old Hollywood movie star' throughout the evening wedding. But what sets Desiree apart from other makeup artists I've worked with, beyond her amazing skill with makeup, is that she's so sweet and incredibly easy to work with. She was thoughtful, kind, and professional from start to finish. I'd highly recommend Desiree to anyone who needs their makeup done -- you'll be in very capable hands.

STELLAR!! An absolute dream!
I had a beautiful experience with April and Dez! From the trial to the wedding day prep, They helped me turn my wedding beauty vision into life. Not only that, they are also super rad and I would hang out with them any day. I would recommend April and Desiree for any bride. My wedding photos turned out better than I had hoped. THANK YOU again for making my wedding day so special!
