I did a little research online and wasn't sure how to pick a makeup artist for my wedding (it was in June). I saw Kat's portfolio and loved how natural and beautiful all the brides looked. They looked like the best version of themselves that they could be, and that's what I was looking for. I contacted Kat and she was very responsive over email. I was apprehensive about the trial because I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted. I had a general sense of how I wanted to look on my wedding day, but not in specific detail. She took the time to talk to me and asked me a lot of questions to get a sense of what I would like. I loved what she did, and didn't hesitate booking her along with two of the artists on her team to do the hair and makeup for me, my 5 bridesmaids and our two mothers.

On the day of the wedding, they arrived on time and there was such a nice atmosphere while we were all getting ready. All of the bridesmaids, my mom and my mother in law looked stunning at the wedding! I received SO many compliments on how nice they looked! As for me, I felt the most beautiful I ever have in my life. I felt confident the entire day, and of course also received compliment after compliment about how radiant and beautiful I was. My whole look was still perfect at the end of the night when I took off my makeup and undid my hairstyle.

We've received the video and photographs already from our wedding, and my hair and makeup were flawless from every angle.
I can't stress how happy I was with Kat. She was by far one of the best vendors I worked with for the wedding - prompt, kind, and very talented. My sister has already booked her for my nephew's bar-mitzva next year, since she loved how fabulous we all looked. I highly recommend her services!!!

A friend of mine who used Kat for her wedding referred me and I'm so glad she did. The name doesn't lie. My hair and makeup was absolutely beautiful. I went to her home for the trial and right off the bat she did an amazing job with my makeup. I told her I wanted a more natural look and after she was done, It was natural, but I felt glamorous and was still super comfortable with my look. Kat is so skilled with her tools and extremely gentle with her brush strokes. She is patient detail oriented and will take her time to apply, look at you in all directions, and apply again. Even after you're all done up, if she see's anything that is out of place, she will take the initiative and run up to you and fix it. As for the hair, I was very unsure of what I wanted and during the trial, we did about 4 different styles. I was still uncertain and she had me come back a 2nd time for no additional charge to try another style...how many makeup artists will do that for you? As you can tell from my review, I loved Kat. Hiring her as my makeup artist was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding.

We hired Kat to do my wife's hair and makeup and my makeup. For 2 girls that never wear makeup, we asked Kat to go for the natural look. She did exactly that. She listened and did wonderful work. We did a trial run on the day that we had the engagement shoot, so that was convenient. Kat came back months later for our wedding day. She took away all our flaws and make us really glow, while still looking natural. We got SO many compliments during the wedding. We would definitely contact Kat next time we need makeup and hair. She did an amazing job! She came over to our house on her own, because she just needed to do 2 brides' makeup and 1 hair. Kat is calm, professional, and pleasant. Remember to tip her!!! Thanks so much, Kat! You are the best!

Kat, Carla and the team were really wonderful to work with. My bridesmaids and I aren't girls who wear a ton of makeup, and they did an excellent job of making everyone look natural and feel comfortable. My mom had been having a really hard time finding someone to do her hair exactly how she wanted, and Carla completely understood the look she was going for and how to get there. Kat and Carla both really listened to what I wanted for my hair and makeup and I felt stunning on my wedding day! Would highly recommend them!

I was so focused on getting my wedding in order that I found myself in a bit of a rush to get a makeup/hair person booked. Blame it on my wedding naivety, but when I finally started looking I was disappointed to see that so many hair/makeup professionals charge SO MUCH for their services. I found Kat pretty quickly and consistently compared her prices against others – she was hands down the most reasonable. I reached out to her via email and within minutes heard back. She is ON it! Luckily she was still available for my wedding date. Kat came to my apartment for the trial and I showed her a few pictures of what I was thinking of. She hit it on the first try, no real adjustments needed.

Kat is professional, reliable, warm, and so on her game. She knows the wedding scene and was actually able to help out with some timeline issues. Again, blame it on my wedding naivety, but I had no idea it would take me to long to get ready the day of! It was a huge comfort to have her on my team to guide me.

I’m a pretty low-maintenance, minimal makeup type of gal, so it was a huge treat to get done up professionally and look like a movie star version of myself for the day. I would 100% book Kat again if I ever needed to have makeup/hair done professionally for another event. I am confident in her talents and professionalism and would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Where do I begin? Kat and her team did a spectacular job with me and my maids on my wedding day. She made each one of us look so beautiful, natural and glamorous. I am extremely picky about hair and makeup. I want high quality looks that look like they belong on the red carpet, and not every artist has the skills to pull this off. Kat and her team do. Not only is Kat super talented, but she was a pleasure to work with as well. From the initial emails, to my wedding day, she was extremely professional, responsive and sweet. I did a consultation with her about 3 months before the big day, where we tried out a few different looks. I ended up switching up my hair idea just before the wedding and she tackled the new look effortlessly. She really knows how to decipher through odd descriptions, pictures and issues to achieve the look you're going for. On my wedding day I felt stun

I used Kat for my wedding hair and make-up and I couldn't be happier. I initially did a trial with Kat because she was the fastest and friendliest response that I got when inquiring about the cost of hair and make-up for my bridesmaids and myself. I did the trial and was really pleased with the results. My sister, who was my maid of honor, immediately booked Kat for her own wedding. Kat is easygoing, kind and an absolute joy to work with!

Kat Laskey is a true professional: you've probably seen her work everywhere without knowing it. She can just look at you and instinctively know what will look best on your face shape and complexion. Kat did bridal makeup for me, plus makeup and hair for two of my bridesmaids. They looked the most gorgeous I've ever seen them. Her rate is not only fair, but a real steal once you start comparing her to other artists with similar experience and entertainment credits. You must absolutely pay for the trial run, where you can experiment and dry run one or more looks before the big day. Kat's excellent, easy to work with, and always on time in starting and finishing her clients –– it's so rare to get all three in any creative professional, so make sure you book her as soon as you can!

Where should I start? I cant even begin to thank Kat enough for her wonderful services at my wedding. She was hands down one of the best make up artist I've ever worked with. She came right on time, actually 5 minutes early the day of my wedding and finished right on schedule. I can not thank her enough. She brought a team of 2 other girls with her to do my whole bridal party plus my mother and my mother in law. Her team did just as good of a job as she did. All my bridesmaids had beautiful updos. Kat airbrushed my make up and literally made me look like a doll on my wedding day. I couldn't have imagined myself to look any better. She is so sweet, kind and welcoming. I felt so comfortable working with her and talking to her. She made me feel at ease. She will even do a test run with you before your wedding day to get an idea of what you want and also so you can see her work. I highly recommend Kat and her services. I will definitely be using her again in the near future. Thank you again Kat!

Carla J Farra did an amazing job for my wedding recently! She was so professional and we were right on schedule the entire day. She did my hair and makeup, but also 5 bridesmaids with the help of Catalina who did the girls’ makeup. I mean wow! Everyone looked so good. Our looks lasted the entire day which started at 8:00am, my reception ended at 11:00pm and we all still looked great. My MOH even went to touch me up before the ceremony and said she didn’t even need to since it was all in place.

I loved my entire look, it was exactly what I wanted. I got so many compliments. I felt so good that day I can’t thank her enough. She has a great personality and is super easy to work with. I highly recommend her for any special event.
