Shelby is the absolute best!
Shelby was a dream. She was extraordinarily well-prepared, professional, kind, talented and just all-around pleasant. She was flexible (e.g., didn't bat an eye when I shared that I had brought my own lip color, offered to stay as long as required to touch up makeup after a potential need due to re-doing of hair) and responsive to my requests/questions and those of my party. She did an incredible job with my makeup, making me look like an enhanced version of myself (without that overly-done up look that can make one look unrecognizable), and made my mom and mother in law feel comfortable, happy, and look radiant. Shelby navigated a tight setup like a pro, having already come prepared with her own table and lighting. In addition to all of this, she was an absolute pleasure to work with - collaborating excellently with other vendors and even went out of her way to help me resolve and manage a challenge with hairstyling. I felt at ease with her on my side. Truly amazing. So very grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her. Only wish we could do it all over again!Sent on 07/22/2020

Shelby was wonderful! I loved my makeup and Shelby was very easy to work with. She was organized ahead of the date as well as the day of. She took the time to explore what kind of look I was going for. I really wanted airbrush and then makeup that would enhance my features. Shelby did an excellent job and I would highly recommend her. (She was also just fun to chat with while getting ready!)Sent on 01/12/2021
