Carly was absolutely amazing! I've never had my make up done professionally, but from the trial Carly had me completely at ease. The morning of my wedding she came over early to start my mom's and my make up, and it was the most wonderful way to start the day. We really enjoyed talking with Carly, and she did such a beautiful job. I'm notorious for wearing off my make up before lunch most days, but she finished my make up by 12 n., and when I finally turned in for the night at 2 am after hugs and tears and dancing and laughing for hours, it still looked flawless.

Carly is also good about educating you on how to let your skin recover from wearing heavy make up for so long, and really went out of her way to make sure that I wouldn't pay the price in breakouts the next day...and I didn't! I also have skin that can react oddly to cosmetics, but nothing irritated it in the least. I can't recommend her enough, and can't wait for my next big event so I can hire her again!

When I worked with Makeup By Vega I not only enjoyed her company, but loved her work! She made our bride Mary so natural and photo ready for her wedding day! Mary was already stunning, and with Makeup by Vega her natural beauty was enhanced. She was a gorgeous, traditional beauty! I highly recommend Makeup By Vega to all my brides!

Your Makeup Artist is one of the most important choices you will make for your wedding day. As a Wedding Photographer, I rely on the Makeup Artist not only to make my bride and her tribe look their best, but to be on schedule. Carly is professional, friendly, extremely knowledgeable and great with time management. My brides' eyelashes are one of the best I've photographed when Carly is their Makeup Artist. This helps to give flawless bride's portraits. Carly is one of my favorite Makeup Artists in the area and for a good reason, you will get from her what you deserve on your wedding day. I look forward in working with her many times over. ~Daissy
