I have nothing but amazing things to say about Michelle!! I've worked with her in the fashion industry for the past 8 years and asked if she'd do the makeup for my wedding. I was absolutely blown away by her talent!! First of all, I love being around her, but sitting in her chair as she "worked on me" was such a fun experience. At our makeup trial, Michelle came prepared with magazine tears of what she envisioned and it turned out beautifully. I've worked with many makeup artists over the years as a model and not one of them has come close to making my skin look so amazing. I looked glowy, dewey, fresh at the wedding and somehow it lasted all night. She's not a big believer in powder, so the makeup wasn't cakey or flat looking at all. I felt so beautiful thanks to Michelle and our photos are just gorgeous!Sent on 09/17/2014

Michelle is just a lovely person all around, and the fact she is fantastic makeup artist is just the icing on the cake! She listened to exactly what I wanted and made it happen. The trial was really helpful, so I suggest not skipping that. I felt absolutely beautiful on my wedding day and didn't need a single touch up. All of my bridesmaids and the Mom's were very happy as well. Thank you so much Michelle!!!Sent on 09/08/2016

Michelle did such a fantastic job on my wedding day, and she has an awesome personality that made the day even more upbeat. I hardly wear any make-up on a regular basis, so finding the right make-up artist was really important for me. Her make-up style was exactly what I was looking for: Natural, and it lasted all day! I knew after my trial with her I could trust her taste and style, and I didn't have to worry about my face on camera for the whole event. My mom and bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning thanks to Michelle's services as well. Her rates were so affordable, and she was professional about handling the timing requirements on the day. She also communicated on time and made me feel at ease -- she is totally reliable and takes the stress away. I highly recommend her for your wedding or any other event! I'd definitely even hire her to help me look great as a wedding guest for someone else's wedding!!!Sent on 03/31/2016
