I used Makeup Artistry by Christy & Co for both hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party on my wedding day on 5/30/15. We all had airbrush makeup applied and our hair done. Everyone absolutely loved how they looked! The girls worked quickly and were able to get hair and makeup done for 10 people in less than four hours. They were efficient and their work was flawless. Everyone commented on how great and natural everyone's makeup and hair looked. The airbrush makeup stayed on all night even through all the tears and I was very pleased about that. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for professional makeup application and hair styling, I loved working with them and will definitely work with them again in the future!

Myself (bride), my maids, my mother, my mother-in-law, and my aunt all had our makeup done.

I also used the hairstylist at Christy for myself, my aunt, and some of my maids. We were all really happy with the end results. The makeup was amazing...they really did an amazing job.

I wish I could add photos to this review to display but you can certainly check out her website and ask her for pictures as well - Christy is beyond nice. I think more than half of the ladies had false lashes (I highly recommend getting this done). The airbrushing had all of our makeup stay perfectly throughout the night. I don't think anyone felt "too done up." And they were really able to personalize the look for each girl. I also had Christy coverup a tattoo of mine. It came out amazing and I was so happy I did it. Check out her work on her Facebook page to see some examples of this if you are interested.

Overall - they were professional, extremely kind, will to change things we wanted changed, listened to everything we wanted, and made sure we all looked great.

We had our wedding on June 7th, and the girls who came to do our hair and makeup were very nice! I thought it was going to be Christy, so I was a bit dissapointed in that. I didn't realize she had other people working for her, but I should have asked. All of the girls did feel that their makeup ran more than we expected. We had our first ceremony down south a few weeks before, and it was MUCH hotter, and our makeup didn't run at all. This was definitely one of the more expensive places I looked at as far as hair / makeup. It looked beautiful, though! And the girl who did our makeup was VERY nice and friendly. I would also say I prefer the eyelashes that are placed a few at a time rather than one large false piece, which is what was used. The lashes that are a few at a time are more natural looking to me. Also, I asked for larger wavy curls and got tighter ringlets and was told they would be more loose by the end of the day. My friend, who is a hair dresser, noticed the girl didn't bring the tool needed to do the larger curls, only smaller ones, so that may be why the girls were so tight. I also asked for a braid in the half up-do I received, and I didn't get the braid. I specifically said i wanted it and showed a photo. I didnt notice until after she left, though, because we were all rushing around so much. I was disapointed in that part. Overall, it was a positive experience, but after having my makeup done a few weeks prior, I can see huge differences.

Christy & Co. - Makeup Artistry & Bridal Hair Design responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your feedback Courtney! I'm sorry to hear that things weren't perfect for you. In response to some of your concerns, I wasn't aware that you didn't know we are a team of artists. I booked Betsy & Renee to work with you as they have been with our company for 5 years now and always receive nothing but 5-star reviews from our past clients. In regards to your makeup running, this is the first time we have ever heard of this happening! Our reviews comment on how the makeup stays perfectly all night. I'm not sure what was different about your party that would have made this happen. If you get a moment and would like to share additional feedback on that via email, I'd love to hear more so we can troubleshoot what may have caused that. You had opted not to do a trial run prior to your wedding, and that would have been very beneficial for both parties to eliminate any longevity issues and to correct them in advance of the wedding. I spoke to Renee about your hair, and she said that you had showed her several photos of different styles and asked her for one that would be a good fit for you, some of which did not have a braid in them. We always curl hair a bit tighter than requested, as the styles do tend to fall throughout the day, especially in the warmer, humid months. Renee always has several sizes of curling irons in her hair bag, to range from tight curls to loose waves. She chose the iron that would give you curls that most resembled the photo. A trial run would have helped with this as well! Both girls said you all were pleased with the hair & makeup when they left, so they are surprised that there are things you would have wanted changed. We don't leave a wedding until we are told everyone is happy. I remember the girls saying you arrived 30 minutes after the scheduled start time, so I'm sure that contributed to the craziness of your day as well. Again, I'm sorry things weren't perfect for you, as that is what we always strive for.

I was extremely pleased with how my makeup came out for my wedding, as well as my bridemaids and mother. Everyone looked beautiful.

Christy is very professional but also a pleasure to be around. Her assistant Betsy was also great.

I would highly recommend Christy!

Christy was absolutely fabulous!!I did not have a chance to meet Christy before my big day but I didn't need to worry - she was fantastic. She was on time, professional, courteous and very important to me and my girls - SOCIAL! She chatted with us and talked to us about our plans for the day while she did our make-up. The make-up she did was fabulous - it didn't wear off or need to be touched up. As the bride, I looked as wonderful at the end of the night as I did walking down the aisle - a wonderful wonderful feeling! Also, so importantly - I had two junior bridesmaids and she set them at ease and made them feel comfortable. One of them was nervous with the mascara and she talked her right through it. I would use Christy and her girls in a heart beat!

Highly recommend - Christy and Renee were amazing and a pleasure to work with! It definitely made for a more relaxing wedding day morning to know that they were coming directly to us at the hotel. Everyone was thrilled with their hair and makeup and it still looked great 12+ hours later after the reception was over. Out-of-state and can't do a consultation before the big day? No worries! My wedding day was the first time I met Christy and Renee and they gave me the exact hair and makeup that I was hoping for! Thank you both again!

Christy and Renee did the hair and makeup for my October 4, 2014 wedding and I couldn't be happier! They were absolutely wonderful, detail-oriented, and professional. My makeup and hair, as well as that of my three bridesmaids and mother, looked absolutely fantastic. I felt truly beautiful on my wedding day. Despite waves of pouring rain and an outdoor photo session with an umbrella, my hair and makeup stayed lovely for the entire day. My mom chose to wear her hair down and her hair stay smooth and styled, despite the rain and humidity. All of my bridesmaids looked stunning. Christy and Renee's incredible attention to detail and artistry resulted in hair and makeup that not only looked great in person, but also translated beautifully to our wedding photos. I cannot thank these amazing ladies enough for their incredible work and would recommend them to anyone!

Reaching out to Christy and her crew was one of the best wedding decisions I made! I was planning my southern VT wedding from southern CT and incredibly stressed out about finding a hair and makeup artist that I was comfortable with. I reached out to Christy who was able to rearrange the schedule of two of her awesome artists in order for them to make the 2 hour trek to my wedding venue. I had a trial which went really well and both Renee and Betsy remembered the few changes I wanted to make for my wedding day. The results for myself and my bridal party were beyond stellar!
