Amazing and would recommend to everyone!
Sandy was so easy to work with! She was prompt in answering her emails and I was able to get an appointment set up right away. I did not do a makeup trail, but Sandy gave me the exact look I was going for. I loved how natural she made me look. I felt gorgeous on my wedding day! I highly recommend her to everyone!Sent on 03/13/2021

Can’t recommend Sandy enough!
Sandy did my makeup for my wedding trial and day and I can’t recommend her enough! We got married in July 2020 during COVID-19 and I really appreciated how flexible and understanding Sandy was. She was always prompt in her communications and she has such a personable demeanor. She just makes you feel special. Sandy immediately put me and my bridal party at ease with how serious she was taking safety precautions (sanitization, mask, air filters, etc.) which meant a lot. I really appreciated that she took the time to understand what I wanted and made sure I felt my most confident. Everyone’s makeup lasted the entire day and photographed so well.Sent on 03/31/2021

Best makeup day ever was on my wedding day, thanks to Sandy
After going through a few makeup trials, I was so worried about how my makeup would look on my wedding day, until I found Sandy. I was so lucky to have found her to do my makeup for the big day!!!! I looked and felt beautiful, but still looked and felt so much like myself, but extra special. Not only did my makeup look incredible, but the day of she was so relaxed and chill and fun, she added more joy to the getting ready portion of the day that I'm so grateful for and it couldn't have been replicated by anyone else. Sandy's an amazing makeup artist, I couldn't have been happier with her and highly recommend her for any special occasion.Sent on 03/25/2021
