Katherine was an absolute dream to work with! She made the whole experience fun and carefree, and was by my side right until I walked down the aisle to make sure everything was perfect. Her team was equally wonderful and I highly recommend Event Cosmetics.

Kathy Sealy and her team at Event Cosmetics were one of my favorite parts of the wedding process. I was egregiously late for my trial and Kathy welcomes me with open arms and not so much of a mention of my tardiness. She then proceeded to spend the next two hours with me tossing around ideas, giving me beauty tips and making me up to look absolutely effing fantastic. I am so not a makeup girl but she left me not only feeling beautiful but confident and inspired to embrace makeup in my everyday life. Kathy has a knack for finding your best assets and highlighting them - making not only other people notice them but also helping you to see them in a new light (e.g. I have always thought my large lips were too big to draw attention to them with gloss or bright lip colors but Kathy changed my mind in one sitting!).

On the wedding day, I was stressed and frazzled. As soon as I sat in her chair I could feel myself relaxing. There is something about being in the presence of someone who has completely mastered their craft that is very assuring. Kathy and her team are not only masters but are consummate professionals. When one of my bridesmaids was unhappy with her eyeshadow they redid it until she was. We all left looking like ourselves but better, and we have the photos to prove it.

Last, and this must be mentioned, when I was a complete mess before the ceremony and crying ader my first look and seeing my dad, Kathy rushed over at my wedding planner's request to fix my concealer. She not only rushed over immediately after a long day to fix it, but stayed through photographs to make sure I looked my best for the camera. She even entertained my three year old (with makeup brushes and lipgloss - maybe I have a budding makeup artist of my own) while I took some shots with my husband.

In short, Kathy was wonderful to work with. You are in amazing hands if you choose Event Cosmetics (and you most definitely should).

Hi couldn't be happier that I worked with Katherine and team for my wedding. She was an incredible resource throughout our wedding year. Day off, along with doing beautiful makeup for all the ladies, she saved my flowers with preservation tips.

She is a warm and caring person, who happens to also be a talented makeup artist. I couldn't be happier with her work.

Thank you!

Katherine and her team did an AMAZING job at my wedding.
I loved the way katherine did my make up and booked her immediately. Not only is Katherine an amazing make up artist, she is also SUPER nice a genuinely nice and caring person. Katherine and her team are also really organized and gave fair quotes for the wedding day.. A month later, I also hired Katherine to do my engagement photoshoot make up. Once again, she made me look sooooo pretty!

Katherine is really organized and thoughtful about her work. She prints out pictures of your dress (for make up inspiration), takes notes of the make up she used and will use on you, takes photos of you to see how the make up will photograph and it helps her decide if she needs to make any make up changes. If you are changing dresses at the wedding, she will also help you change up the look for the other dress(s)! :)

On the wedding day, Katherine and her team made my diverse bridal party all look AMAZING! This is the diversity Katherine and her team had to work with:

Asian Bride
Asian Bride's sister
Older Asian Mom (one who never wears make up or even moisturizes her skin)
Older White Mom
4 White Women
3 White Flower Girls
1 Black Flower Girl

And they made ALL of us look AMAZING!!! I have never seen any of us look better. My friends all gushed at how beautiful I looked all day. We just got our photos back yesterday and even more people gushed at how great I looked! :D

I didn't have any bridesmaids but Katherine stepped in and helped me with my dress, and she even helped walk me (and held my dress) to meet my groom for our "first look" photos. Katherine really went above and beyond. I am truly grateful for her. :)

I'm a make up connoisseur! I spend a ton of time & money on cosmetics. I'm educated and picky about what I put on my face & who I let do it! I interviewed multiple artist and chose Event Cosmetics. Katherine was fabulous! She not only made me look fabulous but she taught me HOW to perform some of her tricks & techniques. She was so kind, calling & checking in as my big day got closer. She called me two days before to give me some pre-wedding day tips to make me feel & look my best. The day of my wedding she made me feel extra special & pampered. She and her assistant Jeanette made sure my maid of honor and two daughters were as beautiful as they could be! We loved our time with Katherine & Jeanette and will be back for make up lessons & the latest trends. They were fabulous!

Event Cosmetics was recommended to me from my wedding planner, Emee Pumarega at EJP Events.
Choosing Event Cosmetics, specifically Katherine for my makeup was one of the best decisions I made for the wedding day. I met with her for a trial run and although what she did was beautiful, it was a bit too much for me (I normally do not wear anything other than mascara, brow color and tinted moisturizer), but she adjusted her application and products based on my feedback and the wedding day makeup was picture perfect.
Katherine is a joy to be around and a calming influence on such a hectic day. She felt more like best friend than a vendor. I highly recommend her for your special day.

Where do I even begin!! Katherine and Nikki are so incredibly amazing! Any bride that has been dreaming of her big day and has envisioned themselves looking beautiful, needs to choose Event Cosmetics. My husband said that I literally took his breath away. I have never felt more stunning and exquisite, while at the same time, still feeling natural and looking like myself.

Katherine and Nikki were with me and the bridal party starting early in the morning up until the very last minute, right before each of us walked up the aisle, touching up our lipstick. They are the most sincere, composed, and genuinely kind and patient people that you can meet, and having people like that around you on your big day, makes it very special and memorable. They center everything around you and making you beautiful. It is so obviously clear that their main goal is to make your day perfect.

I could go on and on about why I recommend Event Cosmetics, but simply put, they were the best decision in our large handful of vendors. This is because looking back, our day was made with them there. It was the most relaxed, joyful, and wonderful day in preparation to the biggest evening of my life, and no words can describe how much it means to walk away with those kinds of memories. Trust me, you will be a happy happy bride if you choose Event Cosmetics.

Thank you Katherine and Nikki!

Katherine and Jeannette provided makeup for 6 members of my daughter's bridal party and they were fabulous. On time, prepared, with a sense of humor on a tense day as the rain threatened to come down on our beautiful event. They really tied the makeup into the entire look of the wedding.. As the MOB I was told I looked 10 years younger so you know I was pleased. They were a pleasure to work with!
