Kara was absolutely amazing and I would recommend her to anyone in the Asheville area. We had our wedding in Green Mountain, NC and she drove out there with no hesitation. She is friendly and professional and warm and listens to everything you want. If I could pay her everyday to do my makeup I would!! Everyone was blown away at the work she did. She makes you look natural but with makeup. You don't look like anything is caked on. When I do maternity photos I'm definitely going to use her again. She was so amazing I'm literally thinking of any event I can come up with just so she will do my makeup!Sent on 06/25/2019

Kara was awesome! She came recommended through my planner, Willow Event Designs, and was so easy to work with. She came up for a makeup trial earlier in the week and was very open to my thoughts and feedback on how to adjust for the weekend. I felt comfortable and beautiful on my wedding day thanks to Kara!Sent on 10/03/2018

Wedding day makeup for bride, mother of the bride, and bridesmaids
Kara is wonderfully creative, kind, and fun to work with. More importantly, she is responsive, timely, and proactive, all of which are significant to a bride. I had no idea how I wanted my wedding makeup to look, but after a few (probably overgeneralized) descriptions, Kara NAILED IT. I couldn't have been more pleased and hands down recommend her for your engagement photo shoots, bridal portraits, or big day!Sent on 10/25/2018
