Wonderful Empowering Wendy
I found Wendy in December of 2018 as I knew my wedding date was September 2019, but didn't know much else. I was admittedly naive about skincare and makeup and Wendy has been a wonderful teacher. I definitely equated taking care of my skin with vanity instead of self-care and Wendy has really empowered me to take better care of the skin I'm in. I started seeing her before my wedding and still see her to keep my skin looking nice.
As for all things wedding, she was also a wonderful teacher, friend, and sounding board. Wendy's been through many more weddings than most of us, and she's got an eye. She hooked me up with my hairstylist, and was nothing but professional (and flexible) with my schedule, payments and communications. In everything leading up to the wedding, I never had to worry about Wendy, I knew she had my back, and she even offered to bring bagels the morning of my wedding!
She gave skin recommendations to all the women in my wedding and really made us look and feel our best.Sent on 08/27/2020

I am so glad I decided to use Wendy’s services both on my wedding day and in the months leading up to it. She provided several great customized facials/skin treatments and helped me establish a new skin care regimen in the months before my wedding. I’ve seen major improvements in my skin; with less dryness and fewer blocked pores.Sent on 05/06/2018
On my wedding day, she provided make-up services for myself, wedding party, and my mother. We all felt and looked great! She customized each of our looks so that it suited each us, while helping pump up the glam factor for the occasion. All the looks stayed fresh all night; even after hours of dancing! Wendy is really an artist - you can tell she loves what she does. I would highly recommend her services.

Wendy was absolutely fantastic through our whole process. From the many months before the wedding, up to the big day in August. She took lots of time and was patient as we figured out the best options for me! She is truly amazing, very gifted, and truly passionate about all she does. You have to book with Wendy, whether is a facial or wedding makeup. She is the best!Sent on 01/01/2018

VP of Operations
Katie is the VP of Operations at Clark Dog Media, Inc. She has been acting since she was very young and absolutely loves supporting Wendy City Faces!
Wendy is a colleague of mine and a great friend! She wows with her artistry but her personality is the true star! I trust her with all of my clients that I cannot accomodate due to scheduling conflicts. She's the go-to girl for a great application, education, & a warm, memorable experience!
Wendy is a very talented Make up artist. She was professional and very easy to work with. I had the privilege of photographing a wedding that she was the MUA for last summer, the bride looked flawless! Having makeup applied professionally is so important, especially on your wedding day, when you are having so many photo taken of you. Trust Wendy to have you looking your best!!
