Talented, Friendly, and Professional Wedding Makeup Artist
I hired Kara as a makeup artist for my wedding on October 25th in Gainesville. She did makeup for my four bridesmaids, mother, mother-in-law, and myself. She met us at the cottage where we were getting ready. Kara is an incredibly talented makeup artist and a very professional business-woman. I felt very confident in her skills and abilities to make us all look beautiful and glamorous for my wedding day. She knows what will look best for you and gives you some choices for lip and eye color. The makeup turned out so beautifully for the photos! She is fun and friendly and is a great person to have around before your wedding to help with anything you may need. She will stay until after your ceremony to do touchups and help with anything else you may need! For example, she held my dress for me while I walked downstairs to go take photos and do my first-look. Overall, I would definitely recommend Kara if you are looking for a very talented and professional makeup artist for your wedding day!Sent on 12/03/2019

Kara was absolutely wonderful. I booked her package for 3 and she did an amazing job. My mom and MOH was very pleased and looked fabulous. She stayed around for touch-ups and assisted the photographer during photos. She is a great asset to your wedding team.Sent on 12/14/2017

Kara came so highly recommended after asking for suggestions in a Facebook group and now I know why! I will never not recommend her to anyone. She is professional but fun and incredibly talented. I chose Kara for my wedding. After our initial meeting I felt so good about it. I am not a makeup person at all and she made me feel amazing without overdoing anything. She really understands individual needs. Not only did she do our makeup, but she stays for touch ups after the ceremony and even helped with my dress before walking down the aisle. Book Kara Winslow and you will not regret it!!!Sent on 09/25/2017
One of the best in the industry. Amazing work and Customer service. Can’t go wrong.
Kara is the best Makeup Artist in town and a pleasure to work with
A true professional who knows how to bring out a person's natural beauty, with the products she uses. Kara's personality sparkles almost as much as the lip gloss she applies.
