Kim was so easy to work with. Replied quickly with all the bride emails confirming my dates. time. and schedule. She was always on time. Her makeup was so perfect. As the bride i did airbrush makeup. It was perfect for my formal ceremony in august. Our reception was casual. I ended up throwing on a bridal swimsuit and jumping into the pool. Accidentally went under water and my makeup did not move! Everyone was mind blown. I would recommend her 100000 times over again.
I absolutely loved working with Kim! I had very little experience with makeup and she made me feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire process which would have otherwise been quite stressful. She went above and beyond every step of the way and even provided me with some general skin care tips that have changed my daily routine and made my skin look and feel healthier. She did a beautiful job on both my makeup and my bridesmaids'. I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist for my special day. Not only was Kim professional, organized, and timely with all her communications, but an absolute joy to work with. She is so kind and funny and we all had a great time working with her. I would highly recommend her for any special celebration and have already recommended her to several of my close friends!
Kim does absolutely phenomenal work and she brought her game for the big wedding day! She listened to me and took into consideration all the tiny adjustments I wanted for my bridal makeup. Kim was very flexible throughout the process and got back to me quickly as I found more ideas on Pinterest that sparked my interest. She offered wonderful, professional advice as to what may or may not work with my facial structure/skin. Her beautiful makeup lasted all night and you get well worth the value in her services!
