    Michelle did an amazing job on my daughter and my makeup for a wedding. She came to the venue and was extremely flexible! I highly recommend her and would use her in the future!

    Michelle did the make-up for me, my bridesmaids, and my mom for my wedding and she did a wonderful job! She is so sweet and makes you feel so relaxed. All of our make up looked flawless and I can't thank her enough! She was super efficient and got everyone done ahead of schedule If I need my make-up professionally done in the future; I will definitely be contacting her! I highly recommend her!

    I've used Michelle's amazing make up services twice for a large pole dance competition. She did outstanding stage makeup for me and really helped bring my character to life. Her prices are extremely reasonable, and included a test run. I'm not very artistic so the test run was a BIG HELP for me to describe how I wanted my character to look, and for Michelle to make it happen she's very responsive to feedback and a great collaborator. She's also SUPER FRIENDLY. We've done this competition twice now, and I can't imagine getting ready for the long stressful day without so quality Michelle time first thing in the morning. She's really flexible, has meet me at the venue both times we've done this show with fairly early morning starts both times.

    Michelle was wonderful! My makeup looked flawless and it held up all day and into the wee hours. Michelle was professional, worked well with each bridesmaid and addressed our individual needs perfectly. She was flexible to meet us at the hotel. I strongly recommend Michelle for any special day- make up needs you might have. You will be amazed by her talent!

    Michelle did my make up and it came out AMAZING! Not only did I get compliments all the way home, but my husband was in awe. She was so professional yet easy to talk to. She answered all my questions in a way in which I could clearly understand. She made me look so beautiful! She was also very patient with the fact that I had my one year old in tow. I would really recommend Michelle for any of your beauty needs whether it is date night, wedding or any other formal event you will not be sorry for doing so because her work is phenomenal!

    Michelle is amazing! She gave me a look that was fresh and did not look like it was caked on. She also did the make-up for my mother, 3 bridesmaids, and a relative. Everyone looked stunning. She was extremely flexible in coming to both my home and then traveling with us to the church to finish looks and do touch ups right before the ceremony. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to get a perfect look for their wedding day!

    Michelle did my Make up for my friends Birthday Party and it was amazing. She invited me and my 6 month old daughter to her home. She was very responsive and helpful. I was able to ask questions and she explained everything to me step by step so I could try the same look at home.
    I felt very comfortable around her and loved the end result.
    I went for a smokey eyeshadow look. The make up lasted all day/nite long.
    Thank you very much. Especially doing an excellent job while my baby was being fussy :)

    Michelle did a fabulous job for me! She travelled to my home and was very professional. She is very enthusiastic about what she does and worked around my neuroses and extreme pickiness in what I do and do not like. She's very sweet and just a true artist. I'd highly recommend her!

    I had my makeup done by Michelle, because I was looking for an everyday kind of makeup application. She delivered 100%! As she was applying my makeup she gave me some tips and tricks.. I love learning new things! I went home and immediately started trying out the things she taught me. I walked in plain jane, and walked out a bombshell. I would definitely recommend Michelle if you need your make up done... for any occasion. Thank you!!

    Michelle is the best!!! She's beautiful inside and out, and is Awesome at what she does. She takes her time at explaining the different products, and also how they work for you skin. I was very well pleased with how she made me up for my friend's wedding, so many compliments. I would highly recommend Michelle to a friend.

    Michelle came to our venue to do the bride and girls makeup for the wedding. Everyone looked beautiful. She also provided the lip gloss for the bride to carry for touching up her lips whenever needed. Everyone looked beautiful. The makeup suited each of the maids skin and hair to a tee. She was friendly, efficient and helpful. We would definitely use her again if the need arises.
