Keely is a true artist! She made me look better than I ever thought I could look on my wedding day, LOL! She was so awesome to work with. So kind, and makes you so comfortable. She was also great about asking what your preference is. I really didn't know what would look nice on me so I showed her my wedding colors and she went with it. The outcome was exactly what I would have wanted. She's a pro. She had done my friends bridal makeup and I loved it so much I booked her for mine! Air brushing is key too, such a clean and natural look. Thank you so much Keely! You rock!

Kelly Ulrich did an amazing job with my wedding makeup! I did a trial with her and LOVED my makeup, but when the big day came around I decided to change a few things from what we did at the trial, and Keely was totally up for it! She was completely concerned about making sure my makeup was exactly what I wanted. She has a really friendly personality that added to the fun and happiness of my day. She is worth every penny. She even did my mom's makeup! My mom is 60 and had never had her makeup professionally done before, and Keely made her look BEAUTIFUL! I just had a great experience; I felt more beautiful than I ever have my entire life, which is exactly how a bride is supposed to feel!

Keely was so warm and professional. She kept us calm and made us all look gorgeous on this very special day. She is a delight and you can not do better than to have her do your make-up. She listens to what you want. Hire her she's the best!!!!

I was having a destination wedding in San Diego and didn't have time to have a make-up trial before the wedding. I was very nervous in selecting a make-up artist since I wasn't going to have the chance for a trial. I rarely get my make-up done over the counter because they tend to go overboard. Thankfully my wedding planners led me to Keely! Keely was great to work with over the phone and through email before my big day. When we did finally meet on my wedding day she was awesome! She did my make up, my mother's makeup, and 1 of my bridesmaid's makeup. Everyone always tells you that you always look beautiful on your wedding day, but I can honestly say, Keely made me radiant. She understood exactly what I wanted and was willing to do everything I asked. She traveled to us in our hotel which made things so much easier and stress-free. Keely was a perfect choice!

Keely was absolutely amazing I could have not asked for a better person to do my makeup I felt life I have never felt before but she also made me look so natural and enhanced all my own features. I got married over 6 months ago and to this day my bridesmaids and I still talk about how amazing our makeup turned out. I wish I could take her home with me and have her as my personal makeup artist every day. I promise you if you choose Keely you will be more than 200% confident with your decision and so happy and beautiful on your special day.

Keely is absolutely fabulous!! She worked with me on my vision and it was just perfect. "Stunning" was the word that I heard that day and I owe that to her! Keely is super efficient as well, on time, and stayed on schedule while taking her time with my bridesmaids and the mothers too, well she actually finished early! She was so calm and fun all day, she made the hole experience enjoyable, and helped keep me calm through it all. I highly recommend her for your wedding day or any occasion really :)

Keely's work was amazing. I stumbled across her website when searching for a makeup artist in San Diego where I was planning a beach wedding. Her portfolio was beautiful and she responded to my initial email immediately. Due to having an out-of-state wedding I was unable to meet with her prior to the wedding, however she maintained contact with me prior to the event and made me feel very comfortable.
She was professional and friendly, showed up on time completely prepared to make me look perfect for my wedding day! She worked quickly and efficiently on the big day. She was able to execute my vision of makeup that looked natural, but elevated. I chose to have her airbrush my makeup and I would recommend airbrushing to all of the brides out there. The makeup stayed flawless throughout the outdoor ceremony and all during the reception and celebration. I have nothing but positive things to say about Keely and her work and would highly recommend her to all the brides-to-be out there. As she left the bridal suite the morning of the wedding I remember telling my bridesmaid, if I lived in San Diego I would want to be friends with her! Her demeanor, attitude, and personality while completing my makeup made me feel like she was more like an old friend than my makeup artist.

Keely is amazing! She made my bridesmaids, the two moms and I look fabulous on my wedding day. She even managed to accommodate our early morning getting ready start time with no problem. This was the first time I tried airbrush makeup, and I was glad to have someone who really knew what they were doing. You are already stressed out enough as a bride, and it's great to know that you're in good hands on your big day! She is so easy to work with, and totally flexible about giving you exactly what you want. More than anything, she is just really nice and fun work with.

I loved everything about my makeup on my wedding day. Keely is really down to earth and really knows what she is doing. I would use her again in a heartbeat and recommend her to any bride.

Keely Marie Makeup was fantastic! They provided make up services for myself and my four bridesmaids for my November 2010 wedding and I could not be more pleased with the result. My bridesmaids looked beautiful and I LOVED my makeup. Keely Marie Makeup was very professional, organized and fun.
I would definitely recommend using Keely Marie Makeup because not only does professional make up make a HUGE difference in the wedding photos, it also adds that finishing touch to a perfect wedding.

I was very nervous about having someone do my makeup for my wedding. When I had my makeup done in the past, it looked unnatural and messy. But then I found Keely! She made my makeup look natural, flawless, and beautiful in photos. She knows how to highlight your features and make you feel like a million bucks.

Keely did my wedding makeup. She is very professional, honest and knowledgeable. At our first consult I wasn't sure how I wanted my makeup or at least how to obtain the overall look I was going for. She offered a wealth of information about what makeup looks best in photos, which colors compliment my eyes, etc. She gave me her advice and left the final decision up to me. It was nice that she genuinely wanted me to be happy with the end result. I brought photos to our trial with the specific look I was going for. She altered some details to compliment my face, and it turned out exactly as I'd hoped. Not only is she a highly skilled makeup artist, but she is fun! She was great to be around as I was getting ready for the big day and definitely helped my nerves. The wedding day makeup turned out even more perfect and beautiful than the trial. I felt gorgeous, and it turned out great in the photos, as well.
I strongly recommend Keely Marie Makeup.

Keely is the most amazing make-up artist out there. I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day, thanks to Keely. Keely showed up on time, did an amazing job and even managed to calm me down on such a hectic day! I would recommend Keely to anybody. She is the best at what she does, no question about it! I cannot wait for the next time she does my make-up!
Thank you Keely!

Amy · Married on 10/20/2007
Keely was so much fun to work with! All of my bridesmaids were very impressed with their make up and I felt like the most beautiful person in the world on my wedding day! With very little time to finish everyone's makeup, Keely stayed calm and collected and made my day such a success. Thank you thank you Keely you're the best!

Keely was so great to work with and I was so happy with my makeup on my wedding day. She listened to everything I wanted. She came out to our venue and did my makeup and five other bridesmaids. Everyone looked gorgeous and was really happy with the final outcome. Keely is really sweet and easygoing. She even gave me some recommendations for hair stylists, which was really helpful. Keely was a great choice and I would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the area!
