Makeup artist turned friend
Kim did my wedding makeup in October, better late than never, but Kim Baker Beauty was the best choice in makeup artist for my wedding day and throughout the entire planning process. She was accessible to me with any questions I had about my wedding or makeup in general. After my Trial, she knew my skin type and helped me pick products that helped put moisture back in my skin so I wasn’t dry and flaky for my big day! Her esthetician background was an added bonus.
Leading towards the wedding day, Kim helped calm my nerves. She listened to my needs for both the morning schedule and how I wanted to look. Her knowledge and use of skincare helped not only me, feel and look my very best, but she made my mom and mother in law to be feel comfortable about getting their makeup done. My mom is very routine and nervous about it being overdone and my mother in law does not generally use makeup. Kim helped every step of the way and even sent many MOB samples and video testimonials to help ensure they felt comfortable making the appointment. But the best part was how much fun we had together and how comfortable I immediately felt. Kim is a new friend and officially my go- to makeup guru!

Absolutely Incredible Artist
I could not be more honored to have chosen Kim as our makeup artist for the day. From the get go with our trial, her calm and relaxing demeanor made me feel so much more relaxed and confident that I was in good hands! She really made us feel connected on a deeper level as friends and she always checked in with suggestions and happy thoughts! She truly did the extra and went above and beyond. She stayed with us through first look photos right up until the ceremony, and she was right there to bring me a smile and calm my happy tears with her magic brushes! As a person whose skin is sooo oily, i was so concerned that my makeup would melt right off...NOPE NOT THIS TIME! My makeup stayed flawless through a night of kisses, dancing and (sweating :/). I do not wear a lot of makeup to begin with and she made me feel incredible and perfectly made up with just the simple touches! We went with the natural lash extensions for the day, and I'm never looking back :), I cannot believe how much she brought out that inner beauty and glow. She partnered with Raven for the day and boy those two are a dynamic duo. each of my girls and my mother could not have looked more beautiful than they did the day of my wedding! Kim is my forever go to girl!- Alissa M.Sent on 09/09/2019
Kim Baker Beauty's reply:Alissa! OMG! You are literally the sweetest ever! Thank you so so much for the kind words. I genuinely enjoyed being with you and your ladies each moment of your special day!

Calm, Creative and Overall Lovely!
Kim did my makeup for my wedding this month and was awesome! She's calm, kind and creative. She used high quality products during both the trial and the day of sessions and listened to what I wanted. Kim also did makeup for my mom and mother-in-law who were also ecstatic with her work. We all felt like she enhanced our features and made sure our makeup lasted all day. Kim goes above and beyond to make sure all her clients feel happy with her work. She consults with you about skincare, products and even sent me a playlist to put on while getting ready. She's a lovely person and a fantastic artist. I highly recommend working with her.Sent on 06/27/2019

Kim did makeup for a bride I provided flowers for recently, and her work was flawless. She has since been so generous with her industry knowledge and is a superb professional. I can't wait to work with her again.
I met Kim while on a wedding appointment in The South Bay this last Fall. I was SO IMPRESSED with her professionalism! It's very rare to see a mobile makeup artist be as organized as she is with not only her equipment, but with how she handles her clients the day of. She's a very kind person to boot. And her makeup skills dominate! I hope to work with her again someday.
Kim is very personable and an absolute pleasure to work with. She is talented and passionate about her work! Highly recommend!
