Alison and Krista were a dream team. After my initial trial run, I knew that I had made the right choice. They are friendly, warm, optimistic, good communicators, and professional. They arrived to our house early in the day to get me and my bridesmaids ready. Both Alison and Krista were very attentive to what we wanted and their execution of the "natural look" we had requested exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend them for any brides in the area!

Alison (makeup) and Kendra (hair) did an AMAZING job making my bridesmaids and I feel absolutely beautiful on my wedding day. Not only did everyone look stunning, but Alison and Kendra were incredibly professional, both on the wedding day and in my earlier hair/makeup trials, and they went above and beyond to make sure I looked my best. When I mentioned that my skin was giving me trouble, Alison introduced me to her line of skincare products, and my skin was perfect by the wedding day. I've been using it ever since, and my skn has never felt better! And when I decided that I wanted to try a different hairstyle for my wedding day, Kendra was kind enough to offer me a second hair trial. Then, on the morning of the wedding, they arrived 15 minutes early so that everything would be perfect and ready when my bridesmaids arrived. To top it all off, they were both tons of fun to be around and helped keep things light as we all got ready for the day. Basically, Alison and Kendra were awesome from the moment I met them!!! I would HIGHLY recommend them to other brides. Thanks so much, Alison and Kendra!

Alison was very flexible, helpful and quick to respond with answers to any of the questions I had about preparing for my makeup on my big day. She was very thorough in my makeup trial which really helped me envision what my makeup would look on the day of my wedding. The best part about the makeup was it looked very natural without looking overdone. Subtle touches really helped my facial features stand out. Alison was very professional, on time, and very friendly!

Alison was great! She listened to my needs and was able to suggest a beautiful look that fit perfectly with the theme of my wedding! She uses high quality products and is a professional every step of the way. She is also a genuinely nice and caring person, which is very comforting for a bride right before she is about to walk down the aisle. Thank you, Alison!

Alison was great to work with and made me feel beautiful from the consultation, the trial, and the big day! She was pleasant, professional, timely, and most importantly good at her art. I chose her because I loved that her work highlighted the beauty of the woman without looking painted, and she exceeded my expectations with her services. She even collaborated with the photographer to make sure I would look great in photos, and I did! I would certainly recommend her services to other brides, and would work with her again in the future for special occasions. She was fairly priced, traveled to my location, and offered skin care advice for the big day. I had initially only planned on getting my makeup done, however I was so pleased with her service that she ended up doing the makeup for my entire bridal party and my mother in law. She was very prompt in her responses to my emails, phone calls, and was flexible on the day of. She even assisted in her collaboration with a hair artist who did a bridesmaid hair (the bridesmaid was so pleased and said it was what she had wanted for her wedding day, but didn't get in another vendor). I think if you are considering Alison's services, meet with her and you will be quickly convinced as I was. Thanks so much Alison for making me feel and look beautiful on my wedding day!

Alison was so awesome to work with. She kept me calm cool and collected during my makeup session and even took on a few more of my girls once they saw what a great job she was doing on everyone's makeup. Of course I had a big ugly pimple on my big day and she was able to get rid of that with no problem. It was also great the way that she explained to me everything that she was doing and asked me for my opinion on everything that she put on me! I would HIGHLY recommend Alison to any bride out there!

I had been on the fence about having my makeup done for my wedding as I always have done my own makeup, but figured it might be nice to have one less thing to worry about on the day of the wedding... Let me tell you, I 100% made the right decision. The value of the service that Alison provides is incredible - I can honestly say that I have never looked as amazing as I did on my wedding day. She was on time, professional and understood exactly the look I was going for (smokey - but not too dark). I would definitely recommend Alison for any makeup services - and If you are on the fence like I was, do yourself a favor and go through a trial run, it can't hurt!

Alison did my make up for my recent wedding and it was the perfect experience. I was so happy with how my wedding makeup turned out; I really looked and felt like a beautiful bride, but still looked like me! You could tell from my wedding photos that Alison understands the right level, color, and look to give her brides so your pictures come out flawlessly.

She is a friendly, approachable artist who listens to and encourages your feedback about how YOU want to look. I remember showing her my ivory wedding dress and she knew the exact shades to use to compliment my look. I had total confidence in her and will definitely be recommending her to my friends. Thanks, Alison!!
