I was only a couple of weeks away from my wedding when I booked Tracy to do my make-up, as another vendor didn't work out. She is extremely friendly and did make-up on ages 14 through 79 for my wedding, and everyone looked beautiful. Tracy knows her products and has the eye for knowing what to use on each person.
Thanks for all your work and we all looked beautiful.

Tracy did makeup for my mother, and seven bridesmaids and myself as the bride. She did an excellent job. Tracy individualized the makeup for each girl to bring out their features. The makeup was natural and looked great in pictures. Traci assures that everyone involved looks great! She is very friendly and easy to work with. Everyone was so pleased with Tracy. I highly recommend her!

I can't tell you enough, about what kind of a great job Tracy did at my wedding.Tracy not only made me look gorgeous, but made me feel like it too. She made me remember that the day was about me, she made me look & feel like an amazingly stunning bride. I was simply glowing and I was told by every guest that I was the most beautifulest bride they ever seen. She also did my entire bridal party's make up. And I have to say that she put the finishing touch on my wedding. Because every girl in my bridal party looked absolutely amazing in our pictures. I love that she uses only high quality make up, in variety of colors & tones. Which is so great because, she is able to accommodate any skin tone.

She was very professional and her wonderful personality was a pleasure. She achieved the exact look that we did on our trial session with ease. Tracy exceeded my expectations. She did an exceptional job. And not to mention, she has the best prices in Chicago Land area. You will not find any better. I only recommend Tracy to my friends, because she is the best, and once you book her you will see what I mean. Thank you so much Tracy for everything!

Tracy did a great job for my wedding. She did all the bridesmaids make up that is half the price of what you'd find anywhere else. She used airbrush on all of us and used quality name brand makeup we all like. Thanks Tracy!!!!!

3.5/5.0
Pros:
1) TALENTED ARTIST: I received many compliments on my hair and makeup on the wedding day, so despite what you will read below, I ultimately looked beautiful, thanks to Tracy.

2) TWO TRIALS: Tracy was kind enough to do 2 trials for me before the big day.

3) SHORT-NOTICE BOOKING: She had availability and was very accommodating, even though I had booked only 3 weeks before the wedding!

4) VERY REASONABLE PRICING: After shopping around, Tracy has the best prices in Chicagoland for a makeup artist with her experience. She has adjusted her pricing to accommodate everyone in this tough economic time.

5) FLEXIBILITY REGARDING TIMING AND ADDED GIRL: On the wedding day, I had to call her to ask where she was. I thought we had agreed she would arrive at 10, but she had written down on her paper 12pm. My fault, perhaps? She was able to make it at 11 and completed 5 faces by 1pm. My flower girl wanted to get her makeup done at the last minute. Tracy did not hesitate to offer her services (and at no cost!). Thank you...

6) SERVICES AND EQUIPMENT: The price for each girl included airbrushing (so cool!) and lashes. This sped up the time needed for each girl and gave everyone a flawless finish. Tracy had top of the line equipment and makeup.


Cons:

1) CHANGING PRICES: We had agreed on a price for myself and the bridesmaids upon signing a contract during our first trial, but when we met for the second trial she changed her pricing (increasing it by $20 each), stating she probably misquoted me during our first meeting. I didn't think this was fair, but I paid the new pricing anyway.

2) I rated 3 of 5 stars for PROFESSIONALISM because:

- DIRECTIONS: During the wedding day morning frenzy, she asked me over the phone where the hotel was and how to get there. The address was previously provided for her. I gave her the number to the hotel's front desk. This was in stark contrast to the hair stylist who arrived 5 minutes early and found her own way there.
- BROUGHT A GUEST: She brought her daughter to my wedding day preparation in our hotel suite. She was very quiet and polite, but it would have been nice to be asked first. Just a bit awkward having a stranger there.
- RESPONSIVENESS: When scheduling the second trial, we played a serious game of phone tag, ending with her calling me back after 2 days. Also, she was unable to receive emails for a while, during this time I had emailed her an itinerary and essential information.

3) LOOKING LIKE A GHOST: On wedding day, the first application of airbrush foundation seemed to be too light for me (and the photographer agreed after snapping a couple of photos of me looking ghost white). It took some convincing for her to change it, but I felt scolded like a kid, for asking her to change it. She said, "Why didn't you tell me earlier?" When earlier? During the last trial? Seriously, I'm filipino and tan very easily, so my color may have changed since the trial. I tried to ask her right before she was about to start applying the other makeup, but she insisted that bronzer would make it better, also bringing me into the bathroom light where it looked better. That would have been perfect if I my wedding day was going to be photographed in a bathroom all day! Maybe it was me being a stressed/tired bride...
**I am by no means a professional makeup artist, but I know my face, and I know what looks and feels right.
Result: She changed it to a shade darker, and it looked great.

Overall:
I would RECOMMEND Tracy on her talent, efficiency, and affordability.

There were a couple of little bumps along the way in between booking and wedding day, but the end result was worth it. Sorry for such a mixed review. I think this was a very stressful time for her and me. She had some personal things going on, as did I, so perhaps at another time, things would go more smoothly.

Tracy, thank you for making me beautiful on my wedding day!
