    Amazing makeup artist

    I truly loved working with kim. From my makeup trial to cycling through three wedding date changes because of covid Kim was always flexible, kind, and accommodating. The day of she did my makeup beautifully and took her time doing makeup for my bridesmaids as well. She was so great and my makeup looked flawless without feeling too done Up, thank you Kim!

    Beautiful Makeup

    I had a great experience with Kim and her team! She did my wedding makeup and I never felt more beautiful! My bridesmaids enjoyed working with Kim too, as they all looked stunning. Kim listened to what every girl wanted and she delivered! Kim and her team are not only amazing at makeup but they are extremely sweet and professional. I would highly recommend Kim Porter to any bride or anyone looking to get makeup done for a special occasion she is the best!

    Perfect Wedding Day Make Up

    I would recommend Kim to anyone looking for an on-site make up artist for their wedding day. It was so much less stress having her at the hotel ready to fill her chair with all of us. I had never had my make up done professionally but she put me at ease and promised I would look natural, still like myself and she definitely delivered! She also took great care of my mom, maid of honor & bridesmaid. Although not her specialty, she was also able to cover up a back tattoo for me so it would not show through my dress. Her extra efforts regarding that were greatly appreciated. Make up lasted well past my energy levels that evening!
