Missy is the most talented, expert skin care professional, hands down. She is absolutely amazing!!! She not only brings out all your beauty on the outside but she is such a radiant woman that she brings out your inner glow too. I have used many of Missy’s services. To start with the most personal and truly heart felt; Missy did my bridal wedding makeup. On my wedding day arrived, I was overwhelming with things to do and family and friends. Two hundred people came into town to celebrate as both groom and I have very large families and many friends. I was doing most of the wedding things and that could have taken me down a dark path if I let it. Also, my family is especially dramatic and just spending the week before the wedding with them in my house was unnerving to put it mildly. Even more stressful was my maid of honor had twin toddlers and was so busy chasing them around that nobody was there to organize the other bridesmaids or handle any of the duties usually taken on by the MOH, but in walks Missy, the heroine of this tale. Missy came to my hotel room about three hours before the wedding to find me alone and anxious. She instantly filled the room with so much lightness and happiness; it was impossible to hold on to my stress and anxiety. She had me laughing and just built me up to feel like the most beautiful and gracious woman in the world. It was my day to shine and there I was, a budding beacon rather than a bridezilla of stress and disappointment. She really took over the job of MOH, organizing things, keeping me blissed out and sending drama away. And when she finished, oh my sweet lord, I have never looked more gorgeous or shined brighter. In fact, almost everyone complimented my makeup, I was absolutely perfect. Missy used the airbrush makeup that evened my skin tone while being so light it didn’t even feel like I was wearing makeup, I just felt beautiful, inside and out. I cannot even thank her or recommend her enough.

Missy did my makeup for my wedding in Las Vegas, from the moment I sat in the chair I was made to feel like a movie star or a celebrity. Missy did a wonderful job and the finished makeup look was stunning - I had compliments all day and even when I return back to the UK, people who had seen the wedding photographs commented on how beautiful the make up looked. The best part was that it didn't even feel like I was wearing make up - the products used were fantastic.

Missy made the make up session fun, calmed my nerves and made sure that I felt extremely special for my special day ahead. I walked out of the studio feeling a million dollars.

I highly recommend Missy to all future brides or any ladies looking for flawless makeup for a special occasion - Missy is a true professional and her sunny positive personality shines through.

I have had the pleasure of using Missy for multiple occasions ranging from Social events to private events with just friends and family. Missy taught me so much about make up and myself. For each event, she took the time to understand the venue, my outfit and the vibe I was trying to create for myself and my guests. She has helped me to branch out and not be afraid of being bold when the occasion calls for it. That being said, never have I left her chair without still feeling like myself. If I had to sum up working with Missy, it would be to say that she takes the time to know you, your face and bring out your best because she is the best.
