Carmen was amazing. She did my makeup for my engagement session and for my wedding day. Both were flawless. The airbrush makeup still looked perfect by the end of the night even after crying. I highly recommend her she really is amazing.Sent on 06/18/2011

Carmen is a true professional. I told her exactly what look I wanted to have and she delivered! She is professional, friendly and detailed. I certainly recommend her if you want to look flawless on your most important day. My makeup lasted all day without a smudge despite the fact it was about 90+ degrees outside as we were doing our photos.Sent on 05/15/2015

I used Carmen for my wedding and could not have asked for a better makeup artist. She was incredibly professional, reasonably priced, and extremely punctual. I had two bridesmaids and 4 family members that had their makeup done by Carmen in addition to myself. She stayed right on schedule (which was so important as we had a tight time table) AND everyone looked beautiful and felt special. It was the perfect way to start such an important day. I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat.Sent on 04/28/2015
Shadows Makeup Artistry's reply:Ariel, you and your bridal party were such a sweet group of women to do makeup for. It is clients like yourself that remind me of why I do what I do and why I love it so much. I wish you many, many blessings!

She was amazing & made sure all my girls & myself were happy with our make up. She makes sure you have a little travel bag for touch up during the process which is very helpful due to I cried a lot ha. She was overall very professional & knew what she was doing. We all looked beautiful.Sent on 04/25/2015
Shadows Makeup Artistry's reply:Taylor, it was my pleasure to do makeup for you and your bridal party. Best wishes to you as you move and begin your new life. I look forward to seeing some of the pictures.

I had the pleasure of working with Carmen and would strongly recommend her services. I live in Chicago but recently had a very small destination wedding in Florida. It was difficult sifting through websites working on narrowing down vendors when I didn't have an opportunity to meet people face to face. I could not have been happier with my experience. Since I was flying in just a few days before the ceremony, Carmen was able to work around my schedule to arrange a trial session. She was open to any concerns and questions I had. She set a firm timeline for my family who also wanted to get make-up done but was flexible enough the day of to even squeeze one more person in! My make-up looked flawless and lasted all day! She even did a great job of working with ladies of all ages and specific needs(ie sensitive skin, wanting a "natural" look, etc).Sent on 11/12/2014

Carmen did an amazing job. She arrived right on time, was flexible with us when we needed to tweak our schedule, and the makeup she did for everyone was beautiful and lasted all afternoon and evening. I so pleased that we were able to work with her for our big day.

I had an amazing experience with Carmen. We had a great trial run, and she was responsive to my hesitation with fake eyelashes. She was so warm and accommodating throughout my special day and made me and my family look absolutely gorgeous- the airbrush foundation made me look flawless :). She was the perfect person for my wedding, and I highly recommend her to other brides!Sent on 04/20/2014

Tami · Married on 06/08/2013
Carmen was awesome from beginning to end. With our crazy schedule she worked out the trial session at our place on a Saturday! The wedding day too was a bit of a fiasco at the venue but she made it all work and everyone turned out gorgeous. The hotel was blocked off at the entrance so she and her assistant walked from the building across the street in the rain carrying all their essentials to get to the hotel and never mentioned it once. Carmen listened to everything we wanted some heavier and some lighter and did the makeup just as each girl wished. She did a fantastic job and the pictures turned out beautiful.Sent on 07/01/2013
Shadows Makeup Artistry's reply:Tami, Thank you so much for the thoughtful review. I honestly appreciate it. Kirby and her bridal party were a fun group of girls to do makeup for. I wish you the very best. Please, don't forget to send some pictures my way.

Carmen did an amazing job on not only my makeup, but the rest of my bridal party as well. She was even able to squeeze in two more people that were unexpected. I received so many compliments on my makeup and how beautiful it was. I highly recommend using the airbrush system that Carmen has. My makeup looked flawless and was so light on my face. Even when I teared up during the ceremony my makeup stayed and did not run! She is the best as what she does.Sent on 12/12/2012
