Found Donna rather last minute as our wedding planning was four weeks from start to I Do. Her bio mentioned a love for working with brides of all ages, including more senior women. Donna responded quickly, fit me into her schedule, and did an amazing job with hair and makeup for both myself and the mother-of-the-bride. I was so pleased with the results that i remain a client today. Highly recommend.Sent on 10/30/2019

Donna was great!
Donna did a great job on my hair and makeup for my wedding! She made my mother and I look and feel great on my special day. She was able to accommodate me on a few weeks notice. Donna was also very friendly and had such a great attitude! Thanks again!Sent on 10/11/2020

Wedding Makeup Trial
Donna was very knowledgeable about makeup and application, and she explained every step she was doing along the way. She provided me with the opportunity to show her some inspiration pictures, and she met my vision. She also provided great recommendations for products and skincare. I know I can trust her for the big day!Sent on 02/11/2020

Great Wedding Hair and Makeup!
Donna and Odessa did an amazing job! I met with them for a trial a few weeks before the wedding and they were very receptive to my preferences and requests for different tweaks and took lots of photos so we would have a reference for the actual day. On the wedding day, it was like meeting back up with old friends - Donna quickly and perfectly executed the makeup for me, me wedding party, and some of my family members, despite the challenges of some of us being 'newbies' to getting our makeup done. Odessa did a fantastic job listening to what each person wanted and creating some amazing vintage looks for me and my bridal party. I loved that she would keep working on it until it was exactly what you wanted. Communication and payment was easy and I felt the prices were reasonable for the great quality of work. One really important thing for me was that after a tough family interaction I started crying a lot before the ceremony and I thought for sure all of my makeup would be ruined but everything was still perfect - I only had to reapply lipstick. The fact that we all still looked good at the end of the night was also a nice surprise I didn't expect. We don't have our pro photos yet so these are just from my and my bridal parties camera.Sent on 09/23/2020

Amazing hair and makeup by Donna and her team!
We were in a tough situation a few weeks ago when we had to postpone our large wedding ceremony and plan for a smaller ceremony instead. However, even with short notice from a panicked bride-to-be, Donna and her team of extremely talented make up artists and hair specialists stepped in to save the day! Donna arranged everything to make the process of preparing on the day of the wedding so easy and worry-free for me and my bridesmaids. Maryanne, the makeup artist, and Tina, the hair specialist, came to us so we would not have to travel on the day of the wedding and were both so fun to work with! Maryanne and Tina did an outstanding job on our makeup and hair and made us all look so beautiful! I cannot rave enough about the experience we had with Donna, Maryanne and Tina! For anyone looking for help preparing for weddings, proms, a fancy night out or otherwise, please consider Donna and her team! You will not be disappointed!Sent on 10/06/2020

Awesome Trial !
After a disappointing first trial elsewhere, I found Donna and she was able to see me right away. Thank goodness, because she really listened to what I was looking for and made me look absolutely beautiful. I could tell she was extremely knowledgeable and experienced in this field. Obviously I booked her right away! I feel so lucky she was still able to travel to me on my wedding day, I’m really looking forward to working with herSent on 03/10/2020

I can't say enough good things about Donna Sousa and her Makeover Artistry team! I recently had the opportunity to participate in my sister-in-law's wedding, where they took care of hair & makeup for seven of us, ranging in age from 25 to 75 and everyone looked fabulous! Everyone looked beautiful for pictures, hairstyles withstood the humidity often associated with an outdoor summer venue, as well as a night of dancing, and the makeup was natural and survived the occasional tear. They are consummate professionals and highly recommended for anyone looking for personalized service! My husband & I will be renewing our vows on our 25th anniversary, and I wouldn't consider booking with anyone but Donna!!Sent on 08/27/2017

Donna was professional and kind and even calming and assuring when our wedding had to be moved due to poor weather. Her hair and makeup artists were professional and listened to what we wanted and delivered it.
I am grateful for their contribution to the success and beauty of our wedding!Sent on 10/31/2019

Donna is an amazing make up artist and she has a gentle soul : )
I would like to thank Donna Sousa for the fantastic job of making my bridal party look gorgeous for our wedding this past weekend! She did all of our hair and make up flawlessly. It was more than I could have ever hoped for! Not only does Donna know her way around hair and makeup, she is a pro at dealing with difficult mothers and maid of honors with sensitive skin types. I was so anxious and nervous on my wedding day and it was Donna’s caring and calm demeanor that soothed my nerves. We could not have looked this good without you! Thank you Donna! 😘Sent on 07/15/2019
Makeover Artistry's reply:Thank you !! It was amazing doing your wedding! You are the most beautiful venue with the most gorgeous ocean views. And every aspect was so whimsical and beautiful!💋👍🏻🌹💄

Donna and Odessa were both phenomenal. I would recommend both of them to anyone and everyone. As the maid of honor, it was difficult to decide whom to choose, but they both made it so easy. Not only did they make us look beautiful, but they also made us feel beautiful!Sent on 08/12/2018

Donna and her team did an amazing job at my wedding this past September! I live in the New York area and got married in Newport, RI, so I had to travel for my trial and work with Donna long-distance to prepare for the big day. She always made our calls a priority, and stayed in close contact with me leading up to the wedding which helped a lot.Sent on 10/11/2018
On the actual wedding weekend, I had my hair and makeup done for the rehearsal dinner, along with 8 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and myself for the wedding day. Additionally, I had two hair styles for my wedding day (one for first-look and pictures, one for ceremony and reception), and touch-ups for the bridesmaids/moms before the ceremony. Donna did a fantastic job keeping us on schedule; she and her team were prompt, professional, and a lot of fun to work with. The hair and makeup was beautiful, and I really appreciated that they were willing to go the extra mile and wait for us to finish photos before doing touch-ups and the second hairstyle for the ceremony and reception. I highly recommend working with Donna and her team for your wedding!

Donna and her team did a fantastic job for our wedding in Newport, RI this summer. My wife had 8 bridesmaids plus our moms, so there were a lot of people of different ages and looks. Donna kept everyone on schedule, and even stayed late to touch everyone up after pictures while Odessa did a second hairstyle for my wife. Fun, professional team, great experience for our wedding day, and everyone (especially the bride!) looked absolutely beautiful.Sent on 10/11/2018

I would recommend Makeover Artistry to anyone! Donna and her team did an absolutely amazing job! They did hair and makeup for myself and family. Everyone came out absolutely gorgeous and they did such a great job of turning our own personal visions of what we hoped to look like into beautiful realities. I was so happy that Donna was able to do my makeup so that I still looked like myself but also felt absolutely stunning. Her hair stylist was absolutely excellent. We were all so very happy with the styles. I am so grateful that I chose Makeover Artistry for my wedding!Sent on 10/31/2018

First off this is absolutely A+ quality! I encourage any future bride to 100% choose Makeover Artistry, you'll be glad you did! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Donna. Finding Donna was the highlight of my vendor search. I’m a woman of color (AA), recently married (2 weeks ago) on Block Island. Donna was willing to travel out to the island (hallelujah) and did absolutely beautiful work on hair/makeup for myself as well as for my mother and mother in law. She is incredibly skilled and was able to work with various skin tones. As a woman of color with medium to deep skin tone, my mother has lighter skin tone and my mother-in-law is Caucasian (with fair skin, blonde hair and blue eyes). Donna was able to work with all of us using airbrush makeup to create a flawless complexion! Despite only having done a makeup trial and no actual hair trial, she was effortlessly able to create beautiful and elegant hairdos that were exactly what we wanted. Everyone offered such beautiful compliments! Donna is also a joy to work with. She is personable, calm, funny and professional! Even further she went out of her way to help me get dressed and out the door to be married! I followed up with her in person and was greeted with hugs and kisses! At this point Donna seems more like a friend than a vendor. I am so glad I found her, as I was losing hope after doing trials with a few other cosmetologists- one that made me look like a corpse and the other who made me look like a pole dancer. You will absolutely be happy if you choose to work with her, as she is incredibly skilled and experienced working with various skin tones and colors, is reliable, professional, reasonably priced and has a fantastic personality! Importantly, she knows how to create beautiful wedding makeup (and hairstyling). Not all vendors who can even apply makeup, know what an appropriate look is for a wedding. Bridal makeup should be soft, beautiful & elegant in my opinion. Trust me, she is the BEST!Sent on 08/07/2018
