    Mimi and her team saved my wedding

    I had an unfortunate situation with a hair/makeup artist who left me—and my entire wedding party of 9 women—high and dry 8 weeks before my wedding day. I reached out to Mimi, as she had done the makeup for my bridesmaid's wedding several months prior. While Mimi was not available for the day, Bbee (her team member) was! I went for my trial at Bbee's apartment in Arlington on a Sunday morning. I had been planning an out-of-state wedding between NC and VA, and it was very tricky to schedule trials, because I work during the week and would have to drive to VA. Mimi and Bbee were very flexible in scheduling a weekend trial to accommodate this, which was hugely convenient for me. Bbee did incredible work on the trial and was very responsive to several small tweaks I made! The trial makeup stayed ALL day and I left feeling very confident I was in good hands for the wedding day.

    Even though Mimi did not do my makeup on the day, she was very involved throughout the process. I ordered some Chanel items through Mimi for touchups (loose powder, concealer, lipstick, and lip liner)—all excellent quality that I will be able to use long after my wedding day was over. Mimi scheduled a FaceTime tutorial to walk me through how to do the touch-ups. Shortly after my trial, I changed my mind and wanted a slightly darker lip color; Mimi promptly sent over some photos of color samples, so I could choose. Finally, I had some trouble with pore sinkage with the original primer combination (I have oily skin)—Mimi worked very closely with Bbee to formulate a better combination of primer and finishing spray/powder.

    On my wedding day, my makeup looked absolutely flawless. My wedding party, too! My mom looked the most beautiful she has every looked. Would recommend Mimi and Bbee to anyone!

    Believe the Photos!

    I found Mimi in somewhat of a panic after my original makeup vendor was a nightmare to work with during COVID delays and I decided to go a different direction. I am SO glad that experience led me to Mimi. She was incredibly responsive and listened to the look I was going for. I never wear makeup, and I was nervous I wouldn't look like myself during my wedding. Mimi was somehow able to make me look "done up" yet like myself for my big day. My mom and I both did trials with Mimi and were totally satisfied after. On the day of, Mimi and her assistant were stress-free and easy to work with. Mimi even helped me put my veil on after my hair vendor forgot and left the hotel! Choose Mimi for your wedding makeup and you won't regret it.

    Aw thank you Britt for the kind words! We were so grateful to be part of your special day and getting to spend it with your mom and your party. Wishing you and hubby and lifetime of love, happiness, and peace.
