I loved working with Kat. We did a trial and she was very open to suggestions and to creating a look that was elevated but in line with my style. On the day of Kat was very calm and professional. She helped keep the vibe mellow and there were no issues with timing. All of the girls loved their makeup. She was patient and efficient. My makeup stayed on the entire night with very little touch-up. I was amazed to see pictures from late in the evening where my makeup still looks fresh. Thanks, Kat!

Kat is fantastic! She is easy to work with and just a sweet person overall. She does fantastic work and was able to create the natural look I was going for. She also gave me some touch up makeup to keep handy throughout the night which I VERY much appreciated and used a lot. I highly recommend the trial as well. I was very happy with both my hair and makeup for the wedding. Thank you Kat!!

Kat was absolutely fantastic!! She was always available throughout the process and had great follow they with her communication. She checked in to see how I was doing and explained all that needed to be done. She showed up on the day early- the arrival time was 6:45 am!! I had a small party but she took her time with each person and did a great job with both the hair and makeup. My MOH and mother looked amazing! Her patience with my indecision's was so appreciate and by the end of the morning it was perfect. I requested additional hours for touch up and her associate Jamie was incredible.. She touched up myself and even the groom during picture- was very hot during the day! I felt so pretty and owe it to this team! I would recommend them tho anyone

Kat is simply AMAZING! She is easy to communicate with by being responsive which I really appreciated, and her prices are very clearly documented and competitive. During my trial I was ready to book her immediately. I didn’t have a clear vision on what I wanted to look like on my wedding day, and after chatting with Kat and having her get to know me and my skin, she made me feel absolutely beautiful while still looking like myself. On top of her skills, she has an incredibly calming and positive energy that I knew I wanted to start the morning of my wedding with, and I’m so glad I did!

Kat arrived the morning of the big day early to set up and prepare. She and her assistant followed the schedule exactly (which she sent out months in advance), and made each of my bridesmaids and the moms look gorgeous! Many of the girls had a photo or two to share, and with that limited information the MUAs made everyone so glamorous without overdoing it, and everyone’s hairstyle was uniquely different. Many of us were hesitant about fake eyelashes and Kat was able to choose specific lashes for each girl that they ALL looked natural – it was incredible for those of us who had never wore them before. I can’t rave about her enough and HIGHLY recommend booking her for your event!

This review is way overdue but Kat knows I'm currently deployed and I didn't want to rush into a short review because Kat and her team deserve an amazing review! I was planning a wedding in LA from Hawaii. I met Kat thru my wedding planner Jackie Murphy. I met Kat for the first time at my trial. I brought my oldest and youngest daughters with me and Kat was super sweet and patient with them. I showed her pictures of how I wanted my hair and she did exactly what I wanted! As she was doing my hair and make-up she asked questions and asked for my honest opinion. She wanted me to be completely satisfied with her work and I was! The day of my wedding Kat and her team showed up to the hotel on time. They did hair and make-up for myself, my maid of honor, my mother and my 4 daughters (3 junior BM's and a flower girl). At my request, they added extensions to my hair and my oldest daughter's hair. My hair and make-up was FLAWLESS!! I cannot express how extremely satisfied I was with everything! My mother absolutely loved her hair and make-up and my daughter's looked beautiful! I also paid for the extra make-up artist to come to the church because I knew I was going to cry and would need a touch-up. She took care of me and my whole bridal party. My hair and make-up lasted all day & night!! WOW!! Kat, I cannot express how truly grateful I am that Jackie recommended you! You made me look and feel gorgeous! I received soooo many compliments on my hair and make-up. My husband was absolutely amazed and kept telling me all night how beautiful I looked! You and your team did an amazing job! You are truly talented at what you do! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! For being a part of my dream wedding!

Kat was fantastic! I'm not super knowledgable about hair and makeup, and she definitely helped me figure out what I wanted to look like on my wedding day. At the trial, I felt like she was really listening to what I was saying, and by the end of it I was really confident about working with her for the wedding! She is super friendly and personable without being overly assertive. She worked with me to create a schedule for the 11 people we had getting hair and makeup done. It could have been a really stressful, grumpy kind of day with all those people and a tight schedule, but we had so much fun! Kat and her team were friendly, professional, and on time. I felt really beautiful (maybe more so than ever before) while still feeling very much that I looked like myself. She was affordable, professional, and really really really good at her job. I'm so happy that I hired Kat! Thank you so much!

Kat and Carla made me and my bridesmaids look beautiful on my wedding day. They were professional, friendly and on-time for the trial and wedding day. I'm picky about my hair and make-up and had an idea of what I wanted but wasn't the best at explaining exactly what I wanted. Calra did my my trail and nailed the look I was imagining. She was so quick and easy to work with. Carla did all of my hair and make-up and she nailed it! Carla is amazing!!

I did lots of research on wedding wire and other wedding sites to get information and research on hair and make-up artists since I'm picky and wanted the best groomers and at a fair rate for my wedding. I started looking close to 5-6 months before my wedding. I must say it didn't take me long to find Absolutely Beautiful and I'm so happy they were available for my wedding date, which was the hight of wedding season. Carla and Kat are so talented and did a stunning job. I'm so happy with the work they did:)

I would highly recommend Carla and Kat to anyone getting married and needs hair and make-up. I even had a few bridesmaids and myself try to book them on very short notice for hair and make-up for other wedding events we were attending. Unfortunately they were already booked since it was wedding season. I would love to work with them again.

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!!!

The moment you see Kat, you're like "Yes, I want her to do my hair and makeup". She's Absolutely Beautiful - and has an incredible energy and demeanor. I had a wonderful trial, and she nailed the look I wanted on her first try. I was a little nervous and on ZERO sleep the morning of my wedding, and she was very calming, worked with my schedule and specifications, applied touch-ups, left me with powder to touch up with later, and her work - it was gorgeous, for both hair and makeup. She made me feel so beautiful. Highly recommended!!

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.
