Let me start with stating that I am incredibly picky about my hair and make-up. I was the most worried about finding a hair/make-up artist for my wedding. I got married at "The Henderson" in Destin in late September 2020. The lovely covid year which brought extra stress. We are from Nashville and had no connections in Destin. I was referred to Gloss and Glow via my photographer. Morgan King (owner) was my make-up artist and Stephanie was my hair stylist.
Morgan King who owns the company is an incredible person and extremely efficient at her job. She took the time to get to know me and my style out of the gate. Morgan was incredibly direct, professional and brought a fun vibe for my wedding day.
Paying was very easy and all done via Venmo to Morgan. She wanted all final payments to be made 7 days prior to the wedding which was fantastic, because we didn't have to worry about it the day of the wedding. Her prices are unbelievably low for the quality of service she provides. In total as the bride my make-up, hair and lashes cost less than $250 with tip. Morgan's quality is dynamite for this price!
For my trial, Stephanie and Morgan did my engagement photo make-up and hair. They were patient, listened to my request to not look overdone or a face full of make-up. They requested I took notes to use for my wedding day via the trial in order to perfect it.
Two weeks before my wedding, my stylist for my wedding party backed out and Morgan quickly stepped up and brought more employees to do my wedding party of 5, as well as my mother, grandma and mother-in-law. EVERYBODY looked stunning and were thrilled with their appearance. My mother has very curly hair and was worried there wouldn't be anyone that could properly do an updo on her. Well Stephanie proved her wrong and knocked it out of the park! Her attention to detail and the time she takes to do hair is better than any one I have been too.
It was humid on my wedding day, but my make-up stayed put and looked flawless for 12+ hours. I also have very fine hair that struggles to stay curled and somehow Stephanie made it look identical to the photo I provided. Best part.... it didn't move at all, even with the beach winds during our ceremony!
The Gloss and Glow team took their time during the wedding morning, listened to every girl based on what they wanted and completely nailed it. All my girls had different hair lengths, textures and wants and they all looked incredible!!!!
I cannot rave more about my experience and I would change nothing about it. The girls were on time, professional and made sure we were all happy with our look. Don't look any further... coming from a highly organized and picky bride - this is the team to book! Supporting small businesses is more important now than ever..... book this women owned business and her team will beat every expectation you have. You won't be disappointed. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day all thanks to the Gloss and Glow team!Sent on 11/15/2020

Morgan literally made our wedding. Myself and my girls all do not really wear make up, so the feeling of getting super dolled up was a lot. Morgan made us all feel comfortable, and made us all look gorgeous! Since I live in Atlanta, we were unable to have a trial, which was nerve racking! I showed Morgan a picture of what I wanted, and BAM! She made it happen! My airbrush makeup lasted ALL night long through the HOT Atlanta heat! Thank you so much for making my day so special!Sent on 09/28/2015

Morgan was recommended to me by my wedding planner. She arranged hair and makeup for myself and my six bridesmaids. She and the hairstylist came out to our rental house to do a trial run the week before the wedding, which I really appreciated. We talked about what I wanted and what colors I like to wear and she took it from there. We had a lot of fun and I loved the way I looked. On the day of the wedding she and her team (a second makeup artist and a hairstylist) came to the venue where we had a "getting ready room" and we all had a blast having our hair and makeup done by Morgan and team. Morgan is a lovely person, very fun to work with, and a talented makeup artist. And my makeup looked great all night - even in the humidity!Sent on 12/31/2019

Delightful, professional and beautiful!
I had a very small intimate wedding very last minute. I contacted Morgan in regards to date, time and place and she was all over it! She nailed my bridesmaids look it was amazing and I loved my wedding makeup ( I’m not a huge fan of dramatic and unnatural) everything was clean, organized and ready to go when i got there! She was so fun to work with ( her and Nancy) and I wouldn’t have had anyone else. Such an awesome experience! Next time I come into town I will be contacting her for family photo makeup :)Sent on 11/05/2019

Morgan is amazing!
Morgan is one of the most professional makeup artists I have met! As a colleague of hers, I have gotten to know her very well and have absolutely nothing but good things to say. She is extremely trustworthy and honest and when she commits to doing something, she does it. In the Destin area, this is actually quite a rare quality! I always look forward to the times I get to work with her or collaborate with her. She has amazing energy that makes you truly enjoy your time with her.Sent on 11/06/2019
Morgan is not only a fabulous person, but her work is beautiful! She has great technique and creates stunning artistry. I don’t hesitate to refer her business, knowing full well that she will follow through for the Client.
If you are a bride, or any prospective client of hers, I would not hesitate to hire Morgan. She will surpass your expectations and you won’t regret it! You will absolutely LOVE Morgan!

Morgan is amazing!
I had the best experience with Morgan when she did my eyelash extensions. I quickly became one of her regulars. I looked forward to my appointments not only because I loved the extensions, but because I truly treasured my time with her. She is not only amazing at what she does but she’s an amazing person! She knows what she is doing and does it so well. I can not say enough good things about her and her talent.Sent on 11/04/2019

My daughter had a last minute glitch where we were hunting for a makeup artist. She came to the rescue! Was able to do a trial for her with us booking her 3 weeks before the wedding and wedding day did mine, the BMs and the bride impeccably. Everyone commented on how beautiful she was- she was glowingSent on 01/02/2018

Sweet, listened to what you wanted, punctual and really good with her brushes. Since we were on a time crunch brought in an associate who was also excellent. Made me as the mob look 10 yrs younger and shocked everyone, made the bride ravishing, and her bridesmaids beautiful, what else could we ask for.Sent on 06/10/2017

I am not from the area, so I had to choose all of my vendors strictly off of reviews. Booking Morgan King Makeup was not only the best decision I made, but the easiest! If you're considering booking, do it now! She is professional, funny, down to earth and overall beautiful inside and out! I loved that she asked each person specific things that they liked or didn't like, to create the perfect look for everyone. She made us not only look, but feel so beautiful! I could not have asked for a better makeup artist for my big day! Thank you, Morgan!Sent on 06/07/2017

Morgan did the makeup for my entire bridal party (4 of us total) and 2 moms. She is as talented as she is sweet. Having her with us for most of the morning of the wedding was an absolute pleasure. My trial run was the night before, which worked out great because my makeup was done for the rehearsal dinner! I received SO many compliments both days and the pictures look amazing. Of course the best part was that the groom was taken aback and just said..."wow." Morgan was efficient, punctual, professional, and adorable. She asked questions regarding likes and dislikes, took time to listen to each person's preferences, and then delivered the perfect look for every person. The airbrush base was the icing on the cake for all of us...just flawless! All 3 bridesmaids and both moms were SO pleased with the outcome...I saw quite a few selfies being taken after makeup! :) Our makeup stayed ALL day and evening, even through pictures in the sun for several hours and getting sweaty on the dance floor! I would highly recommend Morgan for any occasion.Sent on 04/13/2017

I had a destination wedding in Seaside, FL. Morgan was absolutely AMAZING! She did my bridal trial, bridal make up, 5 bridesmaids, my two mothers, and my grandmother-- all airbrush, which I highly recommend! Morgan is the best make up artist I have ever worked with, and an amazing person!Sent on 05/17/2017

I met Morgan while doing a boudoir shoot special with my photographer. She was doing the hair and makeup. I told her that I wanted a more natural look, gold toned eye shadows and she delivered. I loved the look she created for me. I decided to book her for my girls and I because she didn't make us bring our own foundation. Many of my bridesmaids and my mother do not have foundation so not being stressed about it was great. Morgan made everyone look amazing including myself. She was very fun to work with.Sent on 03/07/2017

Dear brides, we all know how many things there are to do while planning a wedding. It's a hectic, crazy, *but fun* time in our lives. With all the decisions, vendor communications, & things to do our heads are spinning and it can be hard to keep up! I give this review with FULL confidence. Morgan King Makeup has been the single best decision in my wedding planning (in addition to hiring a wedding planner).
Morgan has gone above and beyond in every way. She made it EASY to book her. She's been quick to respond to any questions I've had. She's confident in suggesting ideas to make your makeup look BOMB, even if you're not sure what you really want. Can I get an AMEN?! She called me from the start to ask me what I was looking for, how she can help, and just generally was positive & excited about my big day. She is a dream vendor and she truly cares about making your day special and making you feel special.
If you give yourself one gift on your wedding day, give yourself the gift of being in the company of this sweet, talented makeup artist!

Morgan was great to work with...after a nightmare makeup trial for a destination wedding I booked her on 1 referral and a good gut feeling and I am so happy I did! She did exactly what I asked for and more, and, when we added on a couple bridesmaids last minute she was nothing but cheerful and patient. I definitely recommend her- she did all of us from ages 15 to 65 and made EVERYONE happy. Thank you Morgan!!!Sent on 10/21/2016
