Wedding Day Bride

I have never had my makeup professionally done but Monica has set the bar! As soon as we connected she was so accommodating to help me at every step. I wanted a natural bridal look that would be captured well in photos. She asked me to send examples of the look I was going for. When I had my make up trial, Monica took her time to curate a timeless bridal look. Not only that, she made me feel so comfortable like I have known her forever. After the trial she kept me on track by organizing a detailed wedding day timeline for my bridesmaids and mother. All the preparation really helped decrease my stress. Of every vendor/business I worked with during my wedding planning, Monica was the best at reaching out to me and the fastest to respond in all communications. She also seamlessly managed communications with my wedding planner.

On the big day, Monica was at the hotel before the first bridesmaid and got straight to work. She did not skip a beat or break a sweat. Monica gave each of my girls the runway ready look. They were stunning! As the bride, I got the special spa treatment prep. Monica’s personality is so fun and loving. She had all my girls laughing. I felt so blessed to have Monica there as she helped us create some special memories.

Monica perfected my bridal look and was able to execute exactly what I envisioned. She made me look and feel like a beautiful bride on my wedding day.

Thank you so much!

Monica is a stellar makeup artist

Monica is such an amazing makeup artist! She asked about my skin type and what type of makeup I wear. I hardly wear makeup as it tends to irritate my eyes and skin. She kept everything clean with new tools for every girl. She has the most amazing and friendliest personality. She kept all of the girls on schedule and we were ready for my sister’s big day on time. I received so many compliments. The makeup lasted all through the wedding and did not cause any irritation or discomfort. The bride, bridesmaids, mother of bride, flower girl and aunts of the groom looked stunning 🤩 I highly recommend Monica ❤️

Girl with the Glam!

Monica was the makeup artist match made in heaven. Not only was her energy positive and infectious. She was punctual, accommodating, and was able to execute the vision I had in mind for my special day. She was a true professional and communication leading up to the makeup application and was consistent. She also showed up to the location for touch ups! I would recommend her to anyone for an any special event!
