Hello and welcome to my storefront! I am Meghan Lee, the owner and lead artist of Declan and Mae. I am a Nashville-based freelance makeup and hair artist and provide services for all races, genders, orientations, and ages. We have been in the business for eight years now with weddings being a part of it for four years and I've honestly fallen in love with them. A little bit about me... Makeup was always a side hustle of mine but never really pursued it as a career until the last eight years. I grew up where my parents wanted me to be a teacher, so even when I realized my love for the arts, I didn't think it was a feasible goal to do anything but that. After graduating college with a degree in business (not even teaching...go figure), I had no idea where I wanted to take that. So once I did some soul searching, I kept coming back to the idea of beauty. I loved it that much so why can't I make it work? Friends suggested doing makeup but all I could do was weekend gigs because of my 9-to-5 job, so here's what I did. I began emailing TONS of photographers, venues, styling teams, and more just to see if it would get my foot in the door. I worked more on lifestyle projects in the beginning and I became friends with lots of them. But what I really wanted to do the most? Weddings. So I studied, went back to school, and now do hair and makeup. I work mostly on weddings, but also still do lifestyle shoots, boudoir photo shoots, and everything in between (even an underwater photo shoot!). I quit my day job July 2017 and have been doing this full time ever since. I should have quit a LONG time ago but it has been the best decision!!
We provide luxury hairstyling and makeup services for any event. I get to know you a little through email to find your perfect look for your special day. I offer trial runs for weddings -- but aren't required -- and offer my suggestions on what will look best on you. Too many times, other artists are hired and all they know how to do is trendy makeup, but that does not look best on every face. I would urge you to find someone who has the skills to make you look your best based on all your beautiful features. And I would absolutely LOVE to be your beauty consultant and artist for your special event. While I am a single-person business, I do often bring in other local hair and makeup artist friends to help out with large parties.

You will not be disappointed with Meghan!
Meghan is absolutely amazing! She did my wedding hair and makeup as well as my 5 bridesmaids. I felt so beautiful! Meghan and her assistant arrived to my wedding venue early and brought everything needed to make all of us feel like a princess. She listened to what we wanted and made it happen! She has a spunky personality and really helped calm my nerves on the biggest day of my life. I can look back at all of the photos from that day and feel great about how we all looked! 10/10 would recommend Meghan for your wedding!Sent on 01/15/2020

Beautiful Bride and Bridemaids
Meghan was amazing! She is so easy to talk to especially let her know exactly how I wanted my hair and makeup done. All my bridesmaids, my mom, and I all got our hair and make up done by her. Everyone looked and felt amazing! All my bridesmaids commented on how much they loved how they looked. I received some many compliments and I looked great in my wedding pictures.Sent on 01/15/2020
