She made me feel like a beautiful bride!!

Sara did an outstanding job doing my bridal make up. It was everything I wanted, she made sure to do touch ups before she left and even gave us gloss/ lip product and eyelash glue for the road! (Which I ended up using thank you) Sara is such a sweetheart, very easy to talk to, and she genuinely cares about making your makeup flawless! Thank you Sara, I can鈥檛 recommend you enough! 馃槉

The absolute BEST!

Sara is the BEST there is and I鈥檓 so happy she was my makeup artist AND hair stylist for my wedding day. Her work is absolutely gorgeous and photographs so well. She is also so sweet! During my trial, I told her what I was wanting and she nailed it. I took our engagement photos after the trial. When it came to my wedding day, I told her a couple of adjustments and she absolutely nailed it AGAIN! She was there for through all the photos, doing touch ups and ensuring my hair was in the right place. During one round of photos, my husband to be nailed me right in the bridge of my nose with his cowboy hat. Luckily it didn鈥檛 bleed, but Sara was quick to camouflage it and it was like it never even happened. the makeup lasted all day (and night). She even gives you a little touch up bag with lipstick and eyelash glue for after she leaves. If I had to pick an artist again, without a doubt, I鈥檓 picking MakeupbySAC!!
