Embrace Makeup Artistry was amazing. My makeup was flawless. LJ was so great to work with. She is professional, responsive, and so knowledgeable. I do not tend to wear makeup and she far exceeded my expectations and vision of a natural look on my wedding day. My bridesmaid's makeup was just as amazing.Sent on 10/25/2018

We had a great experience working with LJ! She did my, my bridesmaids, and my now-husband's makeup for our wedding. My package included a dry run which was a lot of fun and helpful for ensuring the day of went smoothly and efficiently. Her work made me feel the most beautiful I have ever felt! My bridesmaids could not stop looking at themselves! The touch-ups LJ gave my husband made him feel more confident. I highly recommend working with LJ!Sent on 08/09/2018

Linda is an amazing, amazing person but she is equally skilled at what she does! I got married in Tobago, a small island in the Caribbean. The day of my wedding it looked like it would rain (and it did later in the evening) but it was also hot. My dream was to have an outdoor wedding so I knew the makeup needed to stay on (not to mention the tears that would inevitably occur). From the very beginning with my trial session Linda was accommodating, welcoming and, even when I didn't realize it, very attentive to every detail I wanted. She heard my vision for the look I wanted and took into consideration that I generally don't wear a lot of makeup. The trial was great (I looked like a super star during my car ride home and all that evening) and I went home happy. Fast forward to my wedding day. Linda arrived at the villa to do my makeup and the makeup of my sister, my maid of honor. She started with my sister and as she was working with her I heard Linda comfortably chatting with her while working. It set my mind at ease (wedding days are stressful!) and by the time I sat in the chair to start my own makeup I was already feeling much better about how the day would go. While she applied my makeup Linda laughed and joked with me and my cousin who casually asked her for makeup tips. It was such a relaxed, enjoyable time that by the time she was done beating my face it was like no time had passed. I looked in the mirror and was so happy! Linda had even remembered my penchant for a red lip, and even though we did a more subdued lip during the trial she gave me my red lip (and packed a red lip gloss and extra makeup wipes for the evening)! At the end of the night it rained and I danced and cried through my vows and when I tell you my face still looked amazing! People said I was glowing all night and even commented on it based on cell phone pictures. Someone even said I looked like a Disney princess. Needless to say, please choose Linda as your wedding day makeup artist!Sent on 05/18/2017
