Hire her. Now.
Allison is an absolute gem to work with. My mother, sister and I all got our makeup done for my wedding and she was so fun to even just be around. She has an incredible vibrant personality that is infectious, and her work is so incredible. She had done my trial for my engagement photos and I was just stunned by how she made me up, but I still looked like me. Allison did an amazing job on all of us and makes you feel at ease throughout the entire application. She got my mom to wear false lashes (which my mom has never done and LOVED them, as she was worried she would notice them on; she didn't), and knew without anyone saying a word that my sister needed to wear glitter eye shadow (my sister loves glitter beyond words). And then there was my makeup, which was just perfect - she was even so excited about what she did for me. My husband could not stop gushing about how beautiful I looked. All of our makeup held the entire night (which I knew it would, as it had held up in 90 degree heat on my engagement photo day). And how my makeup looked in my photos - so incredible. Hire her now, you will not be disappointed!Sent on 11/14/2018

What an incredible experience! I never wear makeup but Allison made the process so easy and gave me a flawless wedding look. It held all night (through many happy tears!) and I couldn't have asked for an artist more perfect. Thank you!Sent on 10/19/2016
