    We went to Lorna for a trial run (mother of bride and bride) and Lorna listened and translated what we wanted into a makeup application. On the day of the wedding she came to our venue and we had a great time getting made up. Again she listened carefully, and gave us what we wanted. We looked great but not overly made up. It was very natural and she's lots of fun as well. It was a great experience, especially for two people who don't wear much make up. We felt terrific.

    Lorna did an outstanding job at my wedding with her makeup expertise. We had our destination wedding in Mexico. She did my trial the day prior to the wedding day which was my rehearsal dinner but changed the look up a bit so it wasn't given away! She gave me a beautiful glow and enhanced my facial features with a natural airbrush look. I felt so GLAM. She also helped complete my look with suggesting flowers in my hair! She knows how to complete a look. Thank you Lorna for being apart of our special day and making everyone look and feel their best!

    Amy, Thank you for your kind words and they mean so much coming from you! It was such a privilege to be there with your family and have a small role in such a beautiful few days! So many times weddings are defined by: its about the wedding or its about the marriage...this was without a doubt about the marriage. The attention to detail that you had and your ideas allowed a great collaboration for me to design a few looks that I'm so happy you were so pleased with! Congrats again to you and Derek and hope to see you both again soon!! Hugs!

    Lorna was a true pleasure to work with on my wedding day. I did many trials and couldn't seem to find the right look or person, until Lorna. I was first impressed during my trial with the amount of time Lorna spent talking about the wedding, personality, tone before we even started doing makeup. I felt like she totally understood me and what I was trying to achieve for my wedding day. On the day of, Lorna was so professional, fun, and had great advice! She made my family members and bridal party look beautiful and elegant without the "over done" look. I was so happy with my makeup application, the products, and the attention to detail Lorna clearly puts in with everyone sitting in front of her. Lorna's makeup looked effortless and glowy with a touch of glamour. Everyone in our group of 9 looked wonderful from the afternoon through the evening. Thank you Lorna!

    Kate....it was such a true pleasure having the opportunity to meet with you in between your traveling for your trial and then with your beautiful family on the wedding day. Thank you so much for your kind words but most importantly for the privilege of being able to assist you on your wedding day!
    Best wishes always from across the miles... :)
