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

Stunning wedding makeup for bride, MOB, and bridesmaids!
I was thrilled to book Mimi for my July 2019 wedding. I've been a client of hers for a couple of years and knew that I'd feel confident and comfortable with her work. Mimi is sweet and enthusiastic, with a positive energy that puts you at ease; at the same time, her care, professionalism, and attention to detail are 100% assuring. I showed Mimi photos and gave her a description of the look I wanted to achieve at our bridal makeup trial; it was clear that she knew exactly what I wanted, and she delivered! My bridesmaids were also blown away with their awesome wedding makeup. With inevitable nervous energy swirling around on the big day, no bride wants to feel unsure about how her makeup is going to turn out. Take a look at her work on Instagram and feel secure in booking Mimi!Sent on 09/12/2019

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
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.
