Makeup was flawless! Wish I could have Josie with me to do my makeup every day! We did have a trial which, to be honest I was very nervous about afterwards but I voiced my concerns to Josie and she certainly met the challenge. The issue was that I felt the makeup during the trial was too dark. The amount of makeup and the eye and lip coloirs. She lightened both on my wedding day and chose the perfect lipstick gloss color and then with the false eyelashes, the pics look amazing!!!! Josie also did makeup for my maid of honor and a bridesmaid and they were both also very pleased!

I have worked with Josi several times as a bridesmaid so I knew I wanted her as a bride! She did a wonderful job on myself and my bridesmaids. The makeup lasts all day! We were pressed for time yet she still was calm and followed through! I'd recommend her to anyone and for any occasion.

Josie has done make-up for a number of fund raising and professional speaking events. She is top drawer, always gets the look I need for the occasion. I have and will continue to recommend her.

PS My daughter and I were in the shop when her new foundation airbrush machine arrived. It was so nice of Josie to try it on us. She loves her work, and you will love how you look.

Josie did my makeup for my wedding day, 3-3-13, as well as everyone in my bridal party, and Mother. I was extremely happy with her service. Everyone looked beautiful, and my makeup was nothing short of stunning and flawless! She is professional, a pleasure to work with, and incredibly talented. Unfortunately, due to my busy schedule I was unable to do a trial with her prior to the wedding. However, that didn't hinder the beautiful job she did. My makeup lasted all day and all night. I was a confident, beautiful blushing bride on my wedding day thanks to Josie's work and talent!

Josie was a joy to work with from start to finish. She made everyone feel super comfortable and she made my already gorgeous mom and bridal party even more stunning. Really loved that she took the time to capture the look I was hoping to achieve, and the end result was better than i could've hoped for.

This was my second time using Josie. She did my make-up for my friend's wedding and I knew that I had to have her for mine. My make-up stayed on all night and I didn't even have to reapply my lipstick! She knew exactly what I wanted and I was so pleased. I loved that my make-up didn't feel caked on and was light, especially in August. I would highly recommend her. My entire wedding party looked absolutely beautiful!

Josie was very accomodating to the fact that I was a NJ bride that was living in California and had limited time to meet with her and discuss what I wanted. I felt so comfortable with her that I had no worries and on my wedding day she made my whole Bridal party look awesome. Everyone commented on how great the makeup was and I couldn't have been happier
