On your wedding day, you want to look like the best version of yourself. It’s one of your happiest days and you want everything to be perfect, especially your makeup, because all eyes are on you! New York City based makeup artist Michelle Coursey has years of experience and can help you look beautiful, elegant and radiant.

Michelle is an accomplished makeup artist with years of experience in the beauty industry. She specializes in the clean, flawless, elegant makeup that brides want. She is based in New York City but her clients have brought her as far away as Turkey and Hawaii to work her magic on them. She understands that brides want to look their absolute best on their wedding day, but still look like themselves. Her clients appreciate not just her flawless technique, but also her calm demeanor and soothing touch, which is so important on their big day.

Michelle understands that wedding makeup isn’t about the newest shade of lipstick or eye shadow; it’s about creating the most beautiful, elegant version of yourself so you’ll be happy on your wedding day and happy looking at your weddings pictures for years to come.

She specializes in airbrush makeup, which is long-lasting and provides a naturally flawless look to the skin. She uses only high-quality brands in her kit, including Laura Mercier, MAC, Bobbi Brown, NARS, Makeup Forever and others.

Her work has appeared in countless magazines, both nationally and internationally, as well as on the runway, the red carpet and television. To see her editorial and commercial work, please visit www.michellecoursey.com.

In addition to weddings, Michelle is available for makeup lessons and all kinds of special events.

Michelle is a fabulous makeup artist! She did the makeup for me, my mom, and my sister at both my wedding and my older sister's wedding. In fact, I was so impressed with how she did our makeup at my sisters wedding that I contacted her immediately after I got engaged and was thrilled to find out that she was available to do the makeup at my wedding as well. Her makeup is very natural and she is both professional and very personable. I can't speak highly enough about her!

Michelle was an absolute dream come true! My wedding fell in the middle of NY Fashion week and after being turned down by a few vendors, Michelle graciously offered to make the timing work for my wedding. SHE IS AN ANGEL! She was incredibly flexible working with me on the trials, and OUTRAGEOUSLY talented. I looked like the best version of myself, and that makeup didn't budge - even after a rainy, sweaty, dance party of a wedding. On the day of the wedding she was right on time, and finished my mom, 6 bridesmaids and myself with time to spare. My wedding planners were floored! Importantly, she has a grounded, calm, and serene energy - exactly the person you want with you on the morning of your Big Day. I can't recommend her enough - I LOVE MICHELLE!

Michelle was amazing. I don't usually wear a lot of make up, and I was looking for a natural look for my wedding that would be easy to wear but still really pop in the photos. Michelle was easy to work with (my mom said she really appreciated Michelle's calming presence while we were getting ready), and she really helped me achieve my desired look. My make up stayed on all afternoon and evening (from ~12pm application until I took it off at 2am), surviving both tears during the ceremony and some pretty intense dancing during the reception. And everything came off clean when I removed it at the end of the evening. Thanks, Michelle!

Michelle is a dream to work with! She did the makeup for me, my three bridesmaids, and my mother for my wedding day, and we couldn't stop gushing about how beautiful all of our makeup looked! She was extremely professional and super sweet, and made us all feel comfortable throughout the morning. Michelle was so responsive to what look I wanted, and as my bridesmaids and I all have different complexions and face shapes, she really knows exactly how to work with your features. And the makeup looks great in photos!
My bridal party and I agree that we never felt more beautiful. For any other event that I need to be glammed up for in the future, I'm definitely calling Michelle!

Michelle Coursey gets my highest endorsement. She did my makeup for my wedding in Brooklyn in August and my entire experience with her was excellent.

Michelle knows her stuff through and through. She is also sensitive, calm, and a very skilled listener. At my trial it quickly became clear to me that she would be able to deliver on whatever I requested. By talking to me about my dress and the feel of the wedding, she was able to help me identify a look that fit. She asked insightful questions and was able to help guide me to the natural, fresh look that I wanted. I looked just like myself, but more polished, rested and bright.

I was grateful to have Michelle with me on my wedding day. Getting ready as the bride was a bit nerve racking. Her exceptional skill and her steady disposition were totally calming to me. Also, the wedding involved a lot of humidity, rain and sweaty dancing. My makeup stayed put without looking heavy the entire night; a marvel. It also photographed beautifully. Notably, Michelle was a better value than many other artists of her caliber who I considered, and was absolutely worth the expense. Hiring her gave me peace of mind that my makeup would be beautiful and stay that way on a day where peace on mind mattered. I am lucky to have found her.

Michelle did my makeup as well as my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding. She did such an exceptional job we were all so pleased with our makeup! We also enjoyed spending the morning with her! I had trials with more than one makeup artist as I was very picky and wanted my makeup to look natural. Michelle nailed it, I felt like myself just an enhanced version :) All of our makeup looked great in photos AND in person.
She was on time and extremely flexible when another girl had decided last minute that she wanted to get her makeup done as well. Don't think twice Michelle is very professional and does fantastic work!

Michelle was my makeup artist for my wedding, and did such a wonderful job with me and all the girls. Not only does she use high quality and natural products, but she also is so skilled and helped us all look and feel beautiful the entire day. She was very patient with me as I explained my sensitive skin issues, and also did such a great job helping me achieve the overall look I wanted for my wedding - natural yet sophisticated. Another plus about Michelle is that she is so professional throughout the whole process - she is responsive, direct and responsible, and also so friendly and down to earth. I also really appreciate the time she spent with each of us, and also on the finishing touches. All the girls absolutely loved the job she did for them as well. She contributed so much to my wonderful wedding experience, and I am very lucky to have found her!

What can I say about Michelle? Only fantastic things! In my search for a makeup artist, I had originally gone through so many other makeup artists websites/portfolios, but nothing ever really struck a cord with me. All of their pics showed brides who either looked like they were not wearing any makeup or like they had just done the makeup themselves (and not in a good way...). When a well-known hair stylist recommended Michelle to me, naturally I had to "screen" her via her websites. I found her portfolios to show breathtaking makeup artistry! She apparently had a couple of websites - one for professional stuff I guess and one for her bridal business. I was SO impressed that I had no problem splurging on her, despite my having a very low budget.

During my trial, I told her what I wanted, showed her a couple of pics and she completely nailed it on the first try. I'm really not that easy to please, either. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and did my makeup as well as my mother's and one of my bridesmaids. Michelle was definitely a cool, calming force that day when I was being a bit of a bridezilla about other issues I was having. She was very sweet and sociable. My mother, who is a tough older lady and who typically wears the same lipstick (um, literally the same tube) for the past 15 years looked absolutely radiant and loved her makeup. I had the airbrushed makeup and this lasted for the entire day and night (over 12 hours). I never felt more beautiful.

My wedding was a blast. Planning it was crazy stressful and hectic. Meeting with Michelle and having her do my makeup was a no-brainer and very stress-free. I'm quite sure this will not be the last time I ask her to do my makeup for an event.
