Hello, My name is Lindsey R. Smith! I am a freelance makeup artist, with over nine years professional makeup experience. Grand Rapids, Michigan is the place I call home, but I'm available for travel nationwide. I have been professionally trained in airbrush makeup and HD makeup and I have training with many top cosmetic companies including Trish Mcevoy, Mac, Bobbi Brown, and Aura from Design 1 Salon. Education is very important to me, so weather I'm doing research or taking a makeup class on the latest trends, I'm always doing something to expand my makeup knowledge.

My makeup kit doesn't discriminate... I have foundation colors to fit every skin tone, and formulas that work well with every skin texture. My makeup kit is extremely, sanitary and I take pride in maintaining a cruelty free kit.

I work to accentuate your best features in order to help you look your best on your wedding day. If the biggest thing people notice about you is that you look vibrant and fresh, then I've done my job! I'm not here to make you look like somebody else... I want you to look like yourself... only better! I look forward to working with you on your special day!

Happy wedding planning!

INFO FOR BEAUTY & HEALTH

What beauty services do you offer?
Body Art, Makeup
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?
Yes, a bridal preview is a $60 dollar service that normally takes 1- 1.5 hours to complete. As a gift to my clients, I offer a complimentary airbrush makeup application and false lashes on the day of the trial.
Do you provide any specialty services? (airbrushing, hair extensions, etc.)
I offer Airbrush makeup, individual false lashes, tattoo covering, and HD makeup.
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
I am happy to work on location for your special occasion. I travel for free within a 30 mile radius of my home in Grand Rapids 49505, and charge a small fee for any other mileage.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
If a client decides to book her entire wedding party, first of all, her photos would be FANTASTIC... nothing looks better than consistency in photos. If there are more than five clients in need of makeup services, I will bring my assistant along. She and I have done crazy things, like 12 beautiful makeup applications in three hours! Superhuman, I know! If you have an even larger party in need of makeup, I will bring along another assistant or even another full makeup artist.
How far in advance should clients book your services?
Makeup artists tend to book up very quickly during wedding season. I highly recommend booking AT LEAST 6 months before the event date.

Lindsey did an amazing job with my makeup, as well as my bridesmaid's and mom's. The spray foundation was great to hide any flaws that we had that day, but light at the same time. It looked natural, but elegant at the same time.

Lindsey was such a beautiful person to work with. She is talented in her profession and I would reccomend her to anyone. One thing that stood out to me about her was that she was willing to meet me at the mall to pick the perfect lip color for my wedding day on her own time. My family loved her and so did I. She was referred to me by my incredible photographer at "Tiberius Images" and now I hope you will take my referral serious too.

Lindsey was excellent! She handled each person differently based on what they wanted, combined with her expertise. Each girl in my wedding party that sat in her chair was SO different physically, and Lindsey brought out the beauty in everyone's features. It turned out perfectly.

The only slight snag I found was that she changed the price a bit a day or two before the wedding because she hadn't realized that memorial day weekend would be more money. I'm sure it was just an honest mistake though. (and it was only about $10 or so per person more, nothing drastic).

Despite that little hiccup, I would definitely recommend her! She was very careful and took her job very seriously with each person getting their makeup done. She also was flexible and came to the hotel room to do the makeup, so the wedding party didn't have to go anywhere.

She was also very friendly with all of us. It wasn't awkward to sit in her chair at all. And she had products that she used that were for sale, but she was not at all pushy about it. She left the option up to us, which was greatly appreciated.

I, the bride, liked her very much and without asking the other girls, they all came to me and said how much they liked Lindsey and the way she did their makeup.

If you're on the fence about hiring her, I would strongly recommend that you do. You will be more than happy with the results.

Lindsey did makeup for my wedding on 1-1-10 and she did a phenomenal job. All of my bridesmaids, and mother, were in awe of what a great job she did. She was very prompt with the appointments that we made and was very flexible about when she could meet, seeing as how my schedule was a little on the crazy side. Her talent and passion for makeup artistry shows in her work. She really does care about how you feel on your big day and you can tell that it really matters to her wether your bridesmaids and mothers of the bride/groom are not only comfortable with how they have their make up done, but that they actually like it. My mom especially, who can prove to be a very tough critic for anything, loved her look. Thanks Lindsey, Look forward to working with you again :)

I was a little afraid to have my makeup done for my wedding because I never usually wear makeup. My bridesmaids really wanted to have a makeup artist to help us get ready. One of my girls had used Lindsey for another wedding and recommended I at least give her a call. Lindsey was very personable and helpful. After my bridal preview, my anxiety had completely vanished! Lindsey accented my face in all the right places. She gave me a very natural look, and it photographed beautifully. She used her Airbrush Makeup on my face, and it looked just like my natural skin, only without any imperfections. My mother even opted to have her makeup done by Lindsey! Our makeup stayed perfect the whole day and late into the night. The only thing we had to touch up was our lip color. I'll definitely be calling Lindsey when we have family photos or any other special events!

Lindsey is amazing. She was the second makeup trial that I had in the planning process, and after getting home and looking over the pictures, I sent her an email right way telling her I wanted to book her. She has worked for several makeup companies and is very talented. She knew exactly what to use to keep my oily skin at bay, and even did contouring on my face to make me look thinner (um - awesome!)! She used a type of airbrush makeup that is great for oily skin, and I loved it. It held up so well, didn't become nearly as shiny as regular makeup, and I didn't have to worry about it coming off on clothes or anything. You can also hire Lindsey to stick around throughout the day for touch-ups, which I loved. She touched me up before the ceremony, and again afterward to make sure I looked perfect for all the pictures. She also approached my DH and managed to talk him into letting her touch him up with some oil-absorbing sheets to make sure he wasn't shiny for pictures either! In case the weather is warm (meaning you may sweat), or if you tear up during the ceremony, it is a great option to have her around! One of my bridesmaids was originally going to do her own makeup, and after watching Lindsey finish up 2 other girls, she decided that she had to have Lindsey do her makeup - that says a lot. I would highly, highly recommend Lindsey!

Lindsey was so great to have on my wedding day, such a great personality and she knows exactly what she is doing. It felt so natural, I didn't feel like I even had makeup on! She was so accommodating, came to my house for the preview and traveled to the wedding venue the day of. She listened to what I wanted and what I wanted to look and feel like on my wedding day, and went above and beyond. I can't imagine my wedding day without her there getting me ready. This is something I think every bride should splurge on for their wedding day, I felt like the most beautiful bride in the world that day! I am going to use Lindsey for any big event we have. She was simply amazing!
