My love of makeup came at a very young age. I got to practice on my dolls, stuffed animals, sister, and friends. I couldn't wait to get older just to be able to wear more makeup.

I love making people feel beautiful. I believe that every person can be beautiful and has features that can be enhanced with right makeup. Having your makeup applied professionally should be an uplifting experience. Everyone has their own unique style which can be expressed through rich colors and textures.

When I apply makeup on my clients, I seek their input then express my professional opinion on how we can best achieve their desired look. This should be a truly collaborative experience. I want you to feel and look your personal best.

I received my Bachelors Degree from Central Michigan University in 1999. I have a professional membership with MAC cosmetics, Kett cosmetics, and Makeup Forever.I was trained in airbrush makeup at the Airbrush Academy in Chicago, IL. Read less

I have nothing but praise for this wonderful woman! So flexible and able to adjust to big changes, fast paced worker, punctual, and professional! I have never had someone do such a wonderful job on makeup not only for myself but my bridesmaids and mothers of bride & groom. Allison is very talented and good at what she does! All of my wedding party was satisfied with their appearance, even the most picky ones! Allison is a gem of a person and a definite find as a vendor. I will re come her to anyone needing makeup services.

Allison was such a joy to work with! From the first email response to the hug good-bye on the wedding day, I knew I was in good hands. She is professional, fun and always has a smile on her face. Do not miss out on this opportunity to have her be a part of your special day. I promise you will not be disappointed. Now I just need to find another event so I can book her services again! :)

Working with Allison was great, she was totally easy to get a hold of and responded promptly when I needed to get a hold of her. She is one of very few (if any) that offer both airbrushing and eyelashes included in the price, which was reasonable when compared to other vendors in the area. She has a great portfolio and an even better & truly impressive selection of products. She was very nice and personable while doing our makeup, making most of us feel very comfortable and pampered. Allison is extremely talented, she covered up blemishes on my back and made my mother's vitiligo condition completely disappear (which was really awesome and made a huge difference for my mom). My makeup was perfect and stayed on all night long, she gives samples of lip wear to every girl to reapply throughout the day/night. The airbrushing was excellent - I'm so happy I found someone to do it. Airbrushing is a MUST for outdoor weddings!! 6 out of 7 of my party were very pleased with her work. Allison's eyelash application on everyone looked and held up great (really makes a difference to have falsies for pictures!!). Only complaint was the mother of the groom - I'm not sure what she asked for but it did NOT look good. Allison did tone it down for her after we all decided it was way too much (kinda looked like a call girl with heavy blush and colors not suitable for her style & age). Overall, I really liked her and would definitely recommend her- just be sure to tell her what you are looking for!

If you have Allison doing makeup for your wedding, consider yourself lucky! Allison did an amazing job on me and my bridesmaids. I appreciated that Allison did not put the same make-up on all of us, but tailored our make-up to our preferences and style. I felt beautiful, but still looked like myself on my wedding day. Finally Allison was easy and enjoyable to work with. She arrived on time and finished before the photographer was ready for us.

I cannot say enough kind words about Allison Bower. She came in and did about 8 peoples makeup for my wedding and everyone looked so AMAZING. She would talk to the person getting their makeup done and make sure she incorporated their personality and look they were going for for that day. I am always nervous about getting my makeup done and I am so thankful to have had Allison on my big day. I looked natural and also glamourous at that same time. If you need any kind of makeup Allison is the makeup artist for you. She is calm and fun which makes the day even more perfect. Thank you Allison!

Allison is awesome! She did a great job with my makeup at both the trial and my wedding. She will do what you ask and has an excellent eye for beauty. I got so many compliments from everyone!! My makeup lasted all night long and looked gorgeous. I was a bit apprehensive about the cost at first, but later discovered how professional and talented she is!! Completely worth every penny for a perfect look on a perfect day! Cheers! Jillian

Allison was awesome---very professional and a very talented makeup artist! The original makeup artist we hired ended up cashing our deposit and bailing, but we were able to find Allison at the last minute and she was very accommodating! I was at ease once I met Allison and I knew that she was going to make our big day even more special! Our makeup was stunning and I can't tell you how many compliments I received!

When searching for a make-up artist for my wedding & not living in the immediate area for referrals, I located Allison's information on WeddingWire! When we had our first phone conversation I think we chatted for almost an hour. I had my trial with Allison at her studio & she was professional! She had all the newest trends in make-up, especially make-up for HD photography. Her pricing was very competitive and she was very intelligent & knew her business well. Not to mention, in the trial and the day of our wedding, my make-up was flawless. It looks beautiful in our pictures too. Too bad I don't live closer, because I would definitely use her services again for any special occasion.

Thank you for performing magic on my face. Being so very plain makes me nervious and self-conscious. I am not photogenic and hide from cameras. The last thing I wanted to do was ruin Amys wedding pictures. Thanks to you, I was able to enjoy my daughters wedding and make some wonderful memories. With all my heart, I thank you for making this possible. God Bless

I would HIGHLY recommend Allison Bower. I really wasn’t sure if I should have someone “do my makeup” for my wedding. I thought it was something that was just an added luxury and it wouldn’t make that much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong!

I am so glad that our paths crossed and that she was able to assist me. Her work is AMAZING. I was able to have a trial run to see what my makeup would look like on my special day. She explained to me what makeup she was using, and gave me great recommendations as to what products would look best on me. She also did my daughters’ makeup (15 & 12) and made them look age appropriate. We all looked stunning.

I never knew that my face could be as flawless and beautiful until I met Allison. She truly is an amazing professional makeup artist and I would happily hire her again in a heartbeat!

Allison came to me as a blessing through my lovely photographer Kelly Sweet. Allison did a breathtaking job on my make-up, able to create a vintage look that matched my coloring (blue eyes, red hair and fair skin) and enhanced my best facial features. My skin looked flawless, my make-up looked tasteful, elegant yet dramatic. She was very professional and accommodating to my rather tight schedule, making time to meet with me for my trial run before my rehearsal dinner. She was confident, comforting and complimentary, I felt entirely at ease with her on my wedding day. She works quickly and efficiently, allowing the Bride to maximize time with family and photographer. I was thrilled with her talent and grateful for her time. I could not recommend Allison higher and will use her for future special events.

Allison did an amazing job with my make-up on my wedding day. She was extremely flexible in scheduling a trial session and it was very helpful to work with her before the big day. On the day of the wedding she came to the location where I was getting ready, she was on time and was prompt in her service. Overall I could not have asked for a more professional, creative, caring and organized make-up artist.

Allison is awesome. She did a great job with everyone in my wedding. I had a bad breakout from stress on my wedding day and she covered it beautifully. I also let her put makeup on my daughter, something that I am very particular about. I don't like her to wear makeup but Allison did a very tasteful job. Thank you!!!

Allison is a pleasure to work with. She has a great sense of humor and is very down to earth and provides exceptional service! My makeup was very tasteful and lasted the duration of the event (both the wedding and the photo shoot!)

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Allison Bower. She was so professional and made me feel spectacular on my special day. Her vivacious personality is infectious and her desire to make you look the best (and make you the happiest) on your special day is genuine. I would highly recommend Allison to all my friends and family and anyone who is looking for a makeup artist for any special event. My makeup was perfect. It suited my personal taste perfectly and I never felt more beautiful. Allison is the best!

Let me just start off by saying my make-up was amazing! Allison took the time to get to know both my husband and I and definitely took my wedding look to a higher level. I got lucky and booked in the last and most stressful weeks of my wedding planning and I couldn't be more happy with her work. She was very much a perfectionist with my make-up and took great pride in making me into the best possible me, without taking from my own natural look. I would recommend her services to any bride looking to make a true statement at her wedding!

Allison is fantastic!!! She was a great listener and didn't push me into a look that I would feel uncomfortable with, on the contrary, she really built up my self-esteem during the session and knew exactly how to accentuate the positive. Allison is not scared of color and does the most amazing work with eyes in particular. Her enthusiasm is simply contagious! I laughed alot while she was doing my makeup, which really set the mood for a full happy day! :)
