shelby is an actual IRL angel. i am so happy i found her. she is sweet, kind, genuine, and funny, and that's half the battle in finding a vendor that's your speed. so many are fake-nice for the sake of business relationships rather than human relationships. i really felt like shelby cared about me, cared about her work, and cared about me having the wedding look of my dreams. i sent her a few pictures, and she literally produced EXACTLY my goal. she additionally did my hair because i was scrambling to find a stylist, and i was beyond the moon with how it turned out. she put little clips in my hair that were the perfect touch, and just made me feel like a starlet. further, i booked her for only myself-- when there was still time left before the ceremony, my 2 sisters asked if she'd have time to do their make-up. without hesitation, she agreed. the flexibility, beautiful attitude, warmth that shelby gave to me and mine on my wedding day is so treasured. i'm floored to have encountered a human like her. everyone who invests in her on their wedding day will be impressed and feel incredible grace, like i did. her art/work is incomparable, and she's just the kind of person you'll be better for having met.Sent on 06/30/2019

Best Makeup Artist!
Shelby was absolutely amazing to work with. She was always very responsive, I never waited more than a day to hear back from her. She did my makeup for my engagement photos as well as for my wedding day and they both turned out absolutely amazing. On my wedding day, she did makeup for 3 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and myself and she was done with plenty of time for me to finish getting my dress on and finish getting ready, and we all looked so beautiful!Sent on 03/06/2019
My maid of honor also hired her for a makeup class for my bachelorette party and Shelby was so awesome that day as well. She had to deal with us drunken girls and she was so professional and patient with us. She taught us some really great makeup tips and the class was super fun. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional makeup artist not just for their big day but for any special occasion.
