Elaine is the best

I don’t even know where to begin with Elaine. I feel so lucky to have found Mayed Up for my wedding day.

When I had my trial with Elaine, she helped me figure out what would look best for me and made fantastic recommendations. During my trial, the mink lash selection she had was great, but she could tell they weren’t THE ONES. For the wedding day, she went out and found the perfect lashes that was the exact look I didn’t even know I wanted.

On the day of the wedding, the entire process was stress-free and relaxing with Elaine. I got so many compliments on my makeup the whole night. My entire bridal party was being asked on IG who the MUA was so they could recommend them to other brides. My maid of honor texted me the next morning, “You need to text your hair ppl because they really ****ing killed it. I did not see a single fallen curl.”

I can’t recommend Elaine enough. I am looking for an excuse to throw an event where I need a MUA so I can work with her again. Don’t hesitate to book Mayed Up for your wedding.

Lovely to Work With!

Elaine was amazing to work with! From the start, it was so easy to talk to her and set up a bride hair and makeup trial in Abington. Out of all the makeup vendors I had consulted, Elaine's attention to detail and recommendations during the trial really stood out. She really made me feel absolutely beautiful and glamorous like a bride should, while still keeping my makeup light enough so I still felt like me and did not irritate my sensitive/dry/eczema skin. Additionally, Elaine did a wonderful job working with the giant jewel hairpiece I had picked, arranging it in a beautiful way while still keeping it affixed to my head (not an easy task!). It absolutely poured on us on our wedding day and was relatively humid for a spring day, but my hair and makeup stood the test! Plus, Elaine was kind enough to provide a little touch up kit just in case. With regard to the planning part of the process, Elaine clearly communicated a framework for a schedule, what to expect on the day of, and how my bridal party should prep before the services far in advance. Most importantly to me, she made the girls in my bridal party (bridesmaids, junior bridesmaid, and flower girl) feel comfortable and beautiful, listening to their feedback and providing them the same kindness and attention. It was such a relaxing way to start the morning before the chaos of the wedding day unfolded. I really thank Elaine and Alayna for all their help and support to make everyone feel their best on such a special day.
