Let me start by saying that I normally hate getting my makeup done. Nearly everytime, I remove my makeup as soon as it was on and redo it myself. I was nervous about finding someone I like for my own wedding and a friend insisted I contact Mimi. It was the Best. Decision. Ever. I cant say enough wonderful things about my experience. She is so talented and fun and truly great at what she does. She perfected my makeup and look on my wedding day and made me look beautiful and special but still like myself. My bridesmaids looked stunning. I just hope I have more special occasions coming up so I can hang out with Mimi again. She was such a great addition to the day and provided such great energy in the bridal suite the day of. To all the brides reading this review, look no further!Sent on 01/11/2019

Mimi is a rockstar!
Not only is Mimi extremely talented at her job (my make-up has and never will look better than it did on my wedding day), but she is also such a dream to work with. She is extremely professional but is also so friendly, sweet and down to earth. From the early stages of planning up until the wedding day, Mimi was so flexible and accommodating to the ever-evolving needs of my (massive) bridal party. We had over 20 people who needed make-up for my wedding and Mimi was able to secure an incredible team of pros who all worked so efficiently and smoothly on the day-of. I can't say enough amazing things about Mimi and her team. I also received countless compliments on how amazing my make-up looked, but one of the biggest things I loved about her style is that she made me look like the best version of myself. It lasted the whole day & night but didn't ever look caked on or overdone. It was perfect! I would recommend her a million times over!Sent on 01/10/2019

Wonderful to work with!
Mimi is friendly, sweet, and easy to work with. She did a wonderful job with not only my make-up for my wedding, but my maid of honors as well. The makeup looked natural, and there was no hesitation when I asked her to adjust certain areas. I would recommend Mimi to anyone!Sent on 02/25/2019
(She really goes above and beyond with a smile--she even helped to button up my wedding dress!)
