Kristen did an absolutely amazing job with both my hair and makeup for my wedding day. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience with her from the start. She also did make up for my mother and sister and brought Renee to help with their hair (who also did a great job). I was very pleased after my trial when Kristen worked patiently on my makeup. On my wedding day, I opted for some different colors even after she was almost done with my eye makeup, and it was at this time that her professional, patience, & attention to detail truly shone through as she worked until everything was absolutely perfect! I could not have been happier with her services! I would highly recommend Kristen to anyone looking for a hair and makeup artist for their wedding day or any other special event. I would definitely use her services again in the future.

I used Kristen for my makeup for my wedding and I absolutely LOVED her work!!!! She was amazing to work with, listened to everything I said while also giving her professional opinion. My airbrushed makeup remained FLAWLESS all day and the entire night. It was the end of July, and definitely hot, but it never melted, smudged, or wore off. My biggest concern the day of my wedding was looking "shiny" in the face from sweating, but it never happened. I received so many compliments on my makeup and I have recommended her to all my friends who have recently gotten engaged.
The day of my wedding, Kristen also took the time to fix my hair! I used another person for my hair that day, and when I came back to my house from the salon, I wasn't totally happy with it. Kristen was able to see why I didn't like my hair and with a couple of bobby pins she completely transformed it into what I wanted. She definitely did not have to do this and I honestly feel like this saved my wedding day. I cannot possibly say enough amazing things about her and the work she does.
She also did makeup for all my bridesmaids as well as my mother and everyone was ecstatic beyond belief with how their makeup came out.

I will be using her for all my future events.

I used Kristen for my wedding on July 13, 2012 and was absolutely thrilled with the results. I had my makeup done, and my five bridesmaids and my mother had their makeup done as well. Since we had limited time to get ready at the venue, Kristen brought a helper who was equally talented. Both Kristen and her assistant showed up even earlier than the time we had agreed upon, which eliminated any potential stress. The two of them worked perfectly as a team to get us all ready in time and they coordinated the timing with the people doing our hair as well. All of us were thrilled with how we looked. I had previously scheduled a trial with Kristen so I knew the results would be fantastic. She stuck to exactly what we discussed and practiced during the trial so there were no surprises. She was really great at suggesting colors and styles and took the time to make changes if anything wasn't absolutely perfect during the trial. On my wedding day, the makeup lasted all day and night, which was great especially since it was a relatively hot day in July and we were taking pictures outside for several hours. I did a lot of research before I chose Kristen and I felt that her prices were very reasonable, especially for the great job that she did. I would recommend her to anyone!

I would absolutely recommend her to all of my friends and I hope to have her do my makeup again for any future events!!

I thought that the makeup was going to feel heavy since I normally don't wear much makeup but I couldn't even feel it. I was worried about my makeup fading as I danced my night away but to be honest, it stayed on and even looked great the next morning! Kristen did such an astonishing job that I do recommend her to all of my girl friends looking for a makeup artist.
