Michelle did such a fantastic job on my wedding day, and she has an awesome personality that made the day even more upbeat. I hardly wear any make-up on a regular basis, so finding the right make-up artist was really important for me. Her make-up style was exactly what I was looking for: Natural, and it lasted all day! I knew after my trial with her I could trust her taste and style, and I didn't have to worry about my face on camera for the whole event. My mom and bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning thanks to Michelle's services as well. Her rates were so affordable, and she was professional about handling the timing requirements on the day. She also communicated on time and made me feel at ease -- she is totally reliable and takes the stress away. I highly recommend her for your wedding or any other event! I'd definitely even hire her to help me look great as a wedding guest for someone else's wedding!!!

I had Michelle do makeup for both my wedding and my sisters wedding. She did such a wonderful job and she was so flexible about scheduling the trials as well. Her assistants also did such a great job with my bridesmaids. The service was great and she did my makeup exactly how I wanted it, which is very difficult because I don't usually wear makeup or like to. I also have to say that she was very reasonably priced, considering all the other makeup artists I had looked into. I had been to at least 4 and it was just one disappointment after an other, especially when I would look at the prices for my bridesmaids. Not only was Michelle highly qualified as a makeup artist, she knows how to work with the light and listen to what her client wants. I'm so happy I found her and I hope to use her again in the future.

Words cannot express how amazing Michelle is! My wedding was a week ago ( 10/18/14) and I still feel on cloud 9. I usually wear glasses daily but for my wedding day I wanted to wear contacts. I usually don't feel like the "best me" when I wear my contacts as I use my glasses as part of my style. I also have sensitive skin and have vitiligo, where parts of my skin are different colors and blotchy. Michelle worked with me from the beginning and since my trail she helped me feel so beautiful inside and out. Michelle and her team ( Alexis) have a way of making sure make-up does not take away from your natural beauty.

I contacted Michelle a little less than a year ago and since our first conversation she was professional, warm, fun, personal and I felt beyond confident that she would do an amazing job on my wedding day for my bridesmaids and I, and she did! Additionally, my mom also had her make-up done and from the beginning had a concern with her skin, as she calls it, older skin. From the trial to the day of my wedding, Michelle also gave my mom confidence and her make-up was stunning.

Without doubt I would recommend Michelle and Ethereal Beauty in a heartbeat. I truly cannot thank Michelle enough for being part of my special day and making me feel like the most beautiful and confident bride.

Michelle was amazing. She is an incredibly gifted makeup artist, which is obviously a result of her professional training, modeling/acting experience in front of a camera, and her natural talent.

She made me, my bridesmaids and my mom feel so special on my wedding day, and provided a much needed vibe of calm during my makeup session. She has a knack for bringing out the natural beauty of each person and highlighting individual elements of beauty.

Most importantly, she listened. She welcomed feedback and didn't make anyone feel bad for asking for a tweak here and there. She took vigorous notes during our makeup trial, and remembered all the details on my wedding day.

I felt beautiful... like the best version of myself, not some overly done, made up version. My wedding was in the fall foliage of the Catskill Mountains, and her style aligned perfectly with my vision of an ethereal, woodland wedding.

I Cannot say enough nice things about the talented Michelle! I hired Michelle to come to makeup for 4 bridesmaids and her results were AMAZING! I was very picky about who would be doing the makeup because I wanted everyone to look natural and not looked like they had caked on makeup. WOW i was so impressed when I saw the girls, they were literally glowing! Not only does Michelle do amazing makeup, she is so sweet and kind and everyone loved her! She had no problem doing touch ups for the girls, and did not leave until everyone was picture perfect. If you are looking for an amazing, kind, and talented makeup artist Hire Michelle Ray Smith for your big day or special event!

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Michelle!! I've worked with her in the fashion industry for the past 8 years and asked if she'd do the makeup for my wedding. I was absolutely blown away by her talent!! First of all, I love being around her, but sitting in her chair as she "worked on me" was such a fun experience. At our makeup trial, Michelle came prepared with magazine tears of what she envisioned and it turned out beautifully. I've worked with many makeup artists over the years as a model and not one of them has come close to making my skin look so amazing. I looked glowy, dewey, fresh at the wedding and somehow it lasted all night. She's not a big believer in powder, so the makeup wasn't cakey or flat looking at all. I felt so beautiful thanks to Michelle and our photos are just gorgeous!
