The best makeup artist ever! :)
I stumbled upon Mimi's website while browsing through the internet in search of a makeup artist to do my bridal makeup on my wedding day and I'm so happy that I did! Mimi was very responsive to the many e-mails I sent her, and she is very professional yet sweet and kind at the same time! She was able to replicate the makeup look I showed her on my phone in just one go! She did makeup for myself and my bridesmaids and all of them were completely over the moon with how their look turned out! The makeup remained flawless for the entire night, even after hugging a ton of people and having others literally touch my face - no smudges at all! My coordinator even asked me who did my makeup as she was amazed that I still looked as fresh as I did when I first showed up! I couldn't recommend Mimi enough and definitely hope to have another opportunity to work with her again in the future :)Sent on 06/26/2019

Amazing Make Up Artist
Mimi and her assistant did an AMAZING job with the make-up at my wedding. She did mine as well as my two bridesmaids, my mother, and my mother-in-law. All of us looked gorgeous and our make-up still looked flawless at the end of a very rainy wedding. I would definitely recommend Mimi to anyone (and already have!).Sent on 05/19/2019

Perfect makeup for wedding day!
Mimi was amazing to work with!! I'm so glad she was available for my wedding day. I'm very particular about my eyes and we did about 4 trials with different looks to get the look I wanted. She was very open to my requests and flexible with timing. Her work is amazing and she's super fun too!! I would definitely hire her again for any event!Sent on 06/30/2019
