Best wedding makeup ever! We had a 12 people needing makeup and they were all beauties! Every girl loved their makeup (which is rare in a big group) and I, the bride was obsessed. It was exactly what we all wanted and she came to us, which made the day go so smooth!

Julie is amazing. If she is available for your wedding....book her! Don't hesitate :)

My makeup was flawless, it was waterproof and stayed on all day. I appreciated how well it looked, and photographed (very important!) in all different types of lighting.

I highly reccomend Julie!

I cannot sing Julie's praises enough. She did our make-up for the wedding and I absolutely loved having her be a part of our big day. She is so talented and made all of us feel so beautiful (the lashes sure didn't hurt!). She was professional, yet easy-going, and was such a joy to have in the mix during those fun "getting ready" hours. And on top of it all, there is something very calming about her. Really, I could think of no better person to have so intimately involved in our big day.

I'd recommend Julie to anyone and everyone. If you want to look like the best version of yourself, feel beautiful and confident, and not pay a fortune, book Julie...NOW. She's pleasant, funny, friendly and talented. How can you beat that?

Julie was wonderful to work with! Her energy on a stressful day is so calming, and the work she does is wonderful. She came to our location and made myself, my mother, my aunt and all the bridesmaids look amazing. The makeup lasted all day, through dancing, through crying, through it all.

She was flying out to do the makeup on a documentary, and the director asked her to come early. She refused because she had already committed to my wedding. I can guarantee they were probably paying a lot more, so her committment was amazing.

I couldn't recommend her enough to anyone looking for airbrush makeup.

As a licensed esthetician and former makeup artist myself, it was very important that I had a real pro makeup artist for my wedding. I contacted Julie regarding her services and she responded to my e-mails in a prompt and professional manner. She guided me to her website, which provided a variety of photos as well as information regarding her services. After reviewing several makeup artists online, as well as mentally going through the list of MUAs I personally know and have previously worked with, I decided to have Julie do my makeup for my engagement pictures. Julie's personality immediately put me at ease. She does an amazing job, has the best tools and supplies available, and has a fantastic personality. She is very kind and friendly, warm, easy going, organized, prompt, and funny. She is focused on doing great work and is truly, very talented at what she does. She listens to what you want and is very good at tweaking your look to make sure it's exactly what you want so that you are 100% satisfied. I was so pleased with how my makeup session went for my engagement photos, that I booked her for my wedding. My mother, aunt, cousin, and sister-in-law all had their makeup done by Julie, too. Everyone loved her and her work and everyone looked absolutely stunning! I would highly recommend Julie to anyone. I would like to add that my mom and aunt were very concerned about having a makeup artist who would do a good job on a more "mature" woman and Julie definitely delivered. Everyone looked like a flawless version of themselves. I felt comfortable, not too made up, and I received many compliments on how I looked, as did the rest of the ladies. I will definitely book Julie again for any future events and I highly recommend her services for any special occasion.

I got in touch with Julie less than 2 weeks prior to my wedding after a makeup trial with my first artist went terrible. Although she already had a wedding booked that morning, Julie brought on an assistant on very short notice so she could accommodate all 9 people in my party!

I still say that making the switch was one of the best decisions I made. Julie and her assistant set up right in our hotel suite so it was comfortable and relaxing. Not only that but she did an amazing job! Our makeup was flawless and actually lasted the whole night through tears and sweat.

I cannot recommend Julie enough--she will make you feel beautiful on your wedding day and look incredible for years to come in the pictures!

Julie and her team were phenomenal. All of the girls in our wedding party looked beautiful. She came in from out of town and was on time, full prepared and made everyone comfortable. I was a bit stressed that morning and a member of Julie's team was helping me relax and was just great. I would recommend her to anyone.

Julie did an amazing job. Both my mom and I are picky on how we like our eye make up done and she nailed it. I also surpised my mom-in-law to be with make up and she was a bit nervous since she never wears any. Julie made her feel so pretty and natural! I HIGHLY recommend her.

Julie has been called “MVP” of our wedding and “the waterproof makeup genius.” When we booked her to do makeup for my entire bridal party, we never knew how happy we’d be with that decision. First of all, it was so much fun to be airbrushed and have false lashes applied -- everyone felt so special! Second, and most importantly, we can’t believe how well the makeup lasted. It was 90+ degrees on the wedding day, it rained on the ceremony, and I cried for 10 minutes straight, and NONE OF MY MAKEUP MOVED! Everyone looked flawless despite the trials and tribulations. You never know what is going to happen on your wedding day, but if you work with Julie, you can be sure you’ll look good through it all!

Julie was absolutely AMAZING to work with. Due to time constraints and the distance, I wasn't able to do a trial run with Julie prior to the wedding...however after seeing her work online and seeing other brides that had used her for their big day.... I wasn't worried one bit. She is such a sweetheart and honestly made me look more beautiful than I have ever felt before. I looked natural, not overdone. Seriously book this wonderful artist...because that is what she is...a true artist of beautiful faces!! :) Thanks, Julie! I heart you!

I have had the pleasure of working with Julie both as a fellow wedding industry member, and as a client. For my own wedding, Julie did the makeup for not only myself, but my 8 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and 1 flower girl. I was beyond impressed with her ability to do such an incredible job on each and every person in my wedding. I felt amazing on my big day, and her professional techniques and skills created the ultimate style that I wanted to achieve. When it came to my wedding, there was only one makeup artist in West Michigan that I even considered, and that was Julie. I without a doubt recommend her to any bride.

Julie was a pleasure to work with and was able to help me out in a bind. I had gone to my normal hairstylist for my practice hair and make-up a few weeks before the wedding and burst into tears the minute I got into my car - I was not happy with either my hair or make-up. I had seen Julie's work previously on a wedding blog that I had been following and decided to give her a call. Not only was she able to fit me in later that week for a practice to calm my nerves, but she also recommend a hairstylist as well. Julie is a very sweet person and has a very calming personality; something that is so welcoming during the biggest and most stresfull day of your life. I came to Julie with an idea of what I wanted and she was able to recreate it no problem. My mother and sister also had Julie do their eye make-up for the big day; a great service that she offers at a reasonable cost. I highely recommend Julie!

Julie did an amazing job at making the chaos of the literally minutes before my ceremony (outdoors, while the planner was informing me of the possibility of "plan B" due to the storm rolling in....) seem like a day at the spa. She was even kind enough to get me all zipped up, as my father was the only one available when I was ready to get the dress on ;). She also completely answered all of my bridesmaid's questions while they were getting made up, so it was much like a lesson as well! She really was a dream and we were ooohhhed and aaaahhed over all night. The makeup was what many, many people noticed right away while looking at our pictures, it really was amazing and she was more than kind during each interaction. Thank you again Julie!

She really was a dream and we were ooohhhed and aaaahhed over all night. The makeup was what many, many people noticed right away while looking at our pictures, it really was amazing and she was more than kind during each interaction. Thank you again Julie! Read less

Julie was amazing to work with, and I am so happy that she was able to do my makeup for my August wedding. I met with her about a month in advance for a trial. Since I don't wear much makeup on a daily basis, I wanted a more natural look. And, since I am Asian, I wanted to make sure she could work with my particular features. I shouldn't have worried--throughout the trial, we tried a few different things. She listened closely to what I wanted and was completely committed to making certain that I was comfortable with every aspect of the look we chose. Since she has so much experience with wedding makeup, she applied products that would photograph best, last through outdoor photos, etc... On my wedding day, I was thrilled with my makeup and it looks great in my wedding pictures, too. Julie's incredibly nice, professional, and fantastic at what she does!

Julie did my makeup for my wedding day, and I have never ever felt more beautiful than I did on that day! Julie is so sweet, super flexible and incredibly easy to work with. She did a PHENOMENAL job and everyone was commenting on my makeup all day (and night) long! She was able to take inspiration from a photo I provided for her and give me the exact style I was going for. Julie's work is flawless. I would recommend her to anyone. She made one of the best days of my life even better :) Thanks Julie!

Julie was such a great person to work with. She is absolutely amazing at what she does. She did my make-up for my wedding as well as two of my bridesmaids. I thought my bridesmaids look fantastic and I loved my make-up as well! I had a trial done with Julie a few months before my wedding so we could go over the look I wanted. I showed her a picture of the look I wanted and she performed it to a T, it was perfect:) Julie is very professional in her work but she is also very light hearted and fun to be around. She made all of us feel very comfortable and explained what she was doing and why. She also ended up putting fake eyelashes on all of us which was great! We hadn't thought of it and it really added to the look - so kudos to Julie and her artistic mind. I wouldn't have been able to pull off the look without her. Her prices I feel are very good for the service that she provides. She is really is first class and the money is well worth it - especially when she travels to you! Her make-up selection is huge and quality products. I highly recommend Julie services she is wonderful! She is great with her response and very flexible, which can be hard when you are a mom of a yound toddler:)

I made a last minute decision to hire Julie as my make-up artist for my wedding and was so glad that I did. She happily scheduled a last minute make-up trial with me and didn't mind coming to my hotel the morning of my wedding even though only myself and my mother were getting our make-up done. When I had a horrible skin reaction to a waxing a few days prior to my wedding, Julie quickly responded to my crisis email with some suggestions to minimize redness and irritation and on the day of my wedding was able to cover completely any remaining problems; something I know I couldn't have done on my own. I was so glad I had spent the money to hire someone to do my make-up, I can't imagine what would have happened had I had to deal with irritated skin by myself. Julie was also able to work with my mom who was going through chemotherapy during my wedding to make her look beautiful and restore the lashes and brows she lost during treatment; if they didn't already know, no one at our wedding had any idea my mom was in treatment, which made her able to enjoy the day more thoroughly. I really think every bride should treat herself to looking beautiful on her wedding day; Julie is incredibly talented and really understands how to make a bride look like herself but better, and make it last through a full night of dancing!

Every girl wants to feel exceptionally beautiful on their wedding day. Well, with Julie Strating behind the brush you will feel like a true beauty inside and out!

I had the honor of meeting Julie for the first time through a local photographer, Amy Carroll. Julie had collaborated with Amy to provide make-up for the photo shoot. I loved the make-up so much that I contacted Julie immediately after the photo shoot to inquire about my wedding day make-up.

She is such a pleasure to work with, very friendly and sweet. I love looking at the photos from our wedding day because my make-up looks so natural and beautiful. Julie, thank you for making me feel like a million bucks on my special day!

I cannot say enough about Julie Strating. I contacted her after hearing many rave reviews from other happy brides, and it was very shortly after that I realized why. Julie is not only a total sweetheart, she is incredibly talented at what she does. Her knowledge of makeup and skincare products is impressive. I never knew there were so many ways to apply makeup! Julie knows them all, and she knows which application methods look best for each person. Julie's service far exceeded my expectations. At our trial, she gave me a skin care recipe to use the two weeks leading up to my wedding day, and it truly made a difference. I still use it to this day! She also let me know the foods I should eat to bring out a natural, healthy glow. To sum it up, Julie is just amazing. She is, by far, the best choice for your big day!
