Amazing Makeup, Wonderful Service
MIMI IS THE BEST! I've had my makeup done numerous times as a bridesmaid, maid of honor, etc, but Mimi's work is above and beyond the best makeup application I have ever had. I couldn't be happier with her work on my wedding. I looked stunning and my bridesmaids all looked beautiful. Most importantly, Mimi worked with me to give me the look that I wanted on my special day - she really listened to my requests and to what was important to me and gave me the perfect look that made me feel comfortable and beautiful. I looked and felt so glamorous and I got so many compliments from guests. Also, Mimi took special care with my mother-in-law, who struggles with hair loss. She taught her how to define her eyebrows and apply eyelashes in advance of the wedding so she could look and feel her best. Her care and compassion were a step above! Plus, Mimi was always very responsive over email and any questions I had were always answered right away. She is great to work with and you will never look better!Sent on 08/12/2019
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.
