Amazing Makeup Artist
Shelby was so easy to work with leading up to my wedding day. She answered all my questions in a timely manner. On the day of my wedding, she helped to make the day stress free by being on time, and completing my 6 bridesmaids makeup, and mine, with time to spare. I would highly recommend Shelby to any of my friends who are getting married!Sent on 10/08/2019

High Quality, Perfect Price, Great Service
I cannot recommend McFarren Makeup Artistry enough! Shelby made me feel stunning on my wedding day and went above and beyond to make my trail happen; Shelby traveled to my remote Vermont cabin and made note of all my trial-tweaks to perfect my wedding day make up look. On my wedding day, Shelby and her assistant arrived early, set up, and had everything ready to go for our 8 AM start. She managed to get our 11-person bridal party done an hour before pictures! Shelby and her assistant made me, my girls, and our mothers feel beautiful- everyone’s make up was perfect for their style, skin tone, and texture. I am thrilled with my beautiful my make up photographed, and that it stayed on SO WELL throughout the day. I truly did not even need a touch up after our ceremony, pictures, and reception. I am so pleased with my wedding day look and am thrilled to have connected with McFarren. Reasonably priced, high quality, and delightful to work with.Sent on 10/01/2019

Amazing, kind & down-to-earth artist
Shelby was amazing. For my trial she came to my house, and she did amazing run which was used for our engagement photos. The day of the wedding she arrived early, her work was amazing, she has such much patience, and actually listens to what you want as a look. She was very kind, responsive when I had questions, and always willing to help with ideas for something that I don't normally wear. I wanted a natural look that made my eyes popped and I received so many compliments on how myself and my girls looked.Sent on 09/26/2019
Thank you for everything you did, I still actually need to get some of the lipstick she used because it was amazing. If you're looking for someone down to earth, funny, and very kind, Shelby is your person. We were very lucky to find her!

From start to finish Shelby was amazing to work with! I hired her to do my make up for my wedding in June 2019. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to change our wedding date 3x and Shelby was very accommodating every single time I sent her a pesky email. She asked for pictures if I had some for inspo on the type of look I was going for, then was very thorough during the trial, asking questions about my usual skin care routine, make up routine, and about my life in general. She has any product she could need in her arsenal of make up. She really listened to what I wanted, changed/tweaked what I didn't like, and treated me like a friend rather than just another client. She was so fun to work with the day of my wedding and came with everything she could need. my best friends got their make up done too and it was natural and beautiful. I will 100% be having Shelby do my make up again in the future.Sent on 10/02/2019

shelby is an actual IRL angel. i am so happy i found her. she is sweet, kind, genuine, and funny, and that's half the battle in finding a vendor that's your speed. so many are fake-nice for the sake of business relationships rather than human relationships. i really felt like shelby cared about me, cared about her work, and cared about me having the wedding look of my dreams. i sent her a few pictures, and she literally produced EXACTLY my goal. she additionally did my hair because i was scrambling to find a stylist, and i was beyond the moon with how it turned out. she put little clips in my hair that were the perfect touch, and just made me feel like a starlet. further, i booked her for only myself-- when there was still time left before the ceremony, my 2 sisters asked if she'd have time to do their make-up. without hesitation, she agreed. the flexibility, beautiful attitude, warmth that shelby gave to me and mine on my wedding day is so treasured. i'm floored to have encountered a human like her. everyone who invests in her on their wedding day will be impressed and feel incredible grace, like i did. her art/work is incomparable, and she's just the kind of person you'll be better for having met.Sent on 06/30/2019

Best Makeup Artist!
Shelby was absolutely amazing to work with. She was always very responsive, I never waited more than a day to hear back from her. She did my makeup for my engagement photos as well as for my wedding day and they both turned out absolutely amazing. On my wedding day, she did makeup for 3 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and myself and she was done with plenty of time for me to finish getting my dress on and finish getting ready, and we all looked so beautiful!Sent on 03/06/2019
My maid of honor also hired her for a makeup class for my bachelorette party and Shelby was so awesome that day as well. She had to deal with us drunken girls and she was so professional and patient with us. She taught us some really great makeup tips and the class was super fun. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional makeup artist not just for their big day but for any special occasion.
McFarren Makeup Artistry's reply:Thank you so much Sarah! It was an honor to be a part of your special day! You and your bridal party were so much fun. I hope to stay in touch!

Best choice you'll ever make!
I started out wedding planning not thinking I would need a makeup artist but I have to say it was the best choice I ever made! Shelby helped me through the process and was able to match all skin tones for my bridal party. I highly recommend her for your big day!Sent on 02/04/2019

Well worth it!
Shelby is exceptionally professional. She worked with me to obtain just the look I was hoping for. In fact, the day of my wedding my makeup was even better than the trial and exceeded my expectations. She went above and beyond to help me and my matron-of-honor look our best. Thank you, Shelby!Sent on 02/08/2019
McFarren Makeup Artistry's reply:Gina, you are my natural beauty! Such a great personality and a joy to work with. I hope we stay in touch and I hope you are enjoying the married life!
