Stop right here in your search for a makeup artist!
Please look no further for a makeup artist for your wedding, engagement photos, headshots, or any other reason why you may need to have your makeup done flawlessly! I contacted Kristen to have my makeup done as I was getting some new photos of my boyfriend and I. She was beyond accommodating and willing to take time to do so! In one of her initial emails she asked for what I was looking for as well as pictures so she could get a better idea of the vision I had. It's safe to say that she nailed it! I asked my boyfriend when I saw him before our shoot if he thought it was too much and he said it looked great, no second thoughts about it! Kristen was so fun to talk to as she did my makeup and asked my opinion about almost everything throughout the process. She made sure all of her utensils, brushes, etc. were sanitized and applied everything with ease. She'll definitely boost your confidence! Hire her, trust me!Sent on 01/14/2019
