You must use Mimi for your wedding!!
Mimi is a miracle worker!! I've worked with many, many makeup artists for all kinds of events and none come close to Mimi. She is so sweet and professional and seemed to know intuitively what I wanted for my wedding and what would look best on me. When we had to downsize and change the whole vision of our big wedding, she adjusted seamlessly so that my makeup fit the new look. Mimi was also super flexible and responsive to my many questions and worries as our plans changed. I've never felt more beautiful than I did that day, and the makeup lasted all day and night during our all-outdoors celebration in the end-of-summer DC heat and humidity. Everyone else who had their makeup done by her raved as well. Mimi is the absolute best, and it would be a big mistake not to choose her for your wedding (or any other event)!!Sent on 03/08/2021
I have worked with Mimi on several jobs. She takes pride in her craft. Mimi is a true professional. I always look forward to working with her. Mimi is such a joy to be around. She is a preferred vendor I would refer to clients.
