My passion for makeup goes far beyond the brush. I love to share makeup tips and tricks with women to help them learn that makeup is fun and easy. There are a few simple rules and then once you get those down it is up to you. Makeup is your way of displaying your creative side whenever you want. With makeup the possibilities are endless. Makeup is an amazing tool that is used to enhance your already beautiful features. All you need to know is that you are beautiful and the rest is history. Beauty comes from within and if that is right then it will shine on the outside. My goal is to share my passion of makeup to women all over the world and to encourage them to love themselves both inside and out.

Laura did an excellent job on my makeup for my wedding day. I was very impressed with her professionalism and expertise. She knew exactly which colors would look good on my skin tone. My makeup lasted all day and all night (including my lipstick, even after eating!). We hired her again for my daughter's senior pictures, and were even more impressed by her skills. She gave my daughter a very pretty, natural look. I recommend her to all of my friends, family and coworkers!

I cannot say enough about the quality of Laura's work. I was so excited after my trial, but she truly amazed me on the big day. The bridesmaids' makeup was exceptional as well. With a huge bridal party, Laura still took her time with everyone and we were out the door on time. One of my favorite parts of the day was having her come to us, having everyone in one place made the morning very special. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone that is getting married!

I had gotten my makeup done by Laura for a wedding that I was in a year before my own, and she did such an amazing job that I knew I needed her for my wedding day! Even without a trial I felt confidence that she would make myself and all of my girls look beautiful. I have to say, she did not disappoint. She was right on time and did a fantastic job on everyone. Thanks again for making me feel gorgeous on my big day!

I absolutely would recommend booking Laura for your wedding. She did a fantastic job and worked with me to provide the look I was aiming to achieve, as well as providing great advice - something every bride needs! She was extremely flexible and timely and really wonderful to have by your side on such an important day. Plus, my makeup lasted all day without a single smudge, get the airbrush makeup for sure! Thanks Laura!

Laura did an amazing job. She was extremely punctual and professional. She did my make up and 4 others in about two hours and even had everyone check to make sure it was what they liked before she applied the finishing spray. I got my make up done at 1:45 pm and it still looked great at midnight when our reception ended. I would definitely recommend her.

I just wanted to take the time to write this review to let other brides know that Laura does an amazing job and you should definitely hire her for your wedding makeup. She is very quick to respond to questions about the wedding day schedule and product recommendations and she always welcomed my new ideas. She is much more reasonably priced than other salons in the area (especially for airbrush makeup which I highly recommend). She also didn't charge me extra for applying false lashes like the salons would have. She did a really good job of making the makeup visible in pictures but without making me look like a drag queen in person by applying an excessive amount (an issue I often see with brides at weddings I have attended). She definitely made me look like a prettier but still natural me! I had people coming up to me after my ceremony asking who did my makeup because they liked it so much. I would definitely recommend her!

I truly do not even know where to begin when it comes to describing Laura's talent as a makeup artist and professionalism as a business owner. I first met Laura when she was the makeup artist for one of my closest friend's wedding and within minutes of working with her, I knew I wanted her to be there for us on my wedding day. I've always struggled with my appearance and have had acne for many many years. I was always worried that I would not look or feel my best on my wedding day, and although I had a few blemishes, Laura made them completely disappear and made me feel absolutely beautiful. She is bubbly, personable and has got to be one of the most organized people I have ever met. Laura arrived early (and we had a 6am start time, if that says anything) with all her supplies including her own chair. I would not only recommend Laura, but I only hope I get the chance to work with her again.

Laura, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for making me feel the way every bride should on her wedding day. I would not have felt the same without you.

Laura was an awesome make-up artist to have for my wedding. She came to my house to do make-up for 2 moms, 3 bridesmaids, and me. She allowed for enough time to complete each person and do touch ups if needed. Airbrush and traditional make-up were both offered, with absolutely no pressure to chose one over the other. Laura made sure my make-up looked exactly like I wanted it to, which is what's most important on your wedding.

I feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Laura for my wedding. She was very calm, sweet, professional, and has an amazing talent. I was nervous that having 6 girls in my bridal party plus family members and myself, it would be more than one artist could handle; however, Laura not only made us all look great, she did it with such ease and attentiveness. I had two trials with Laura as my ideas changed over time and each time she was helpful and offered great ideas. She absolutely knows what she is doing and I cannot wait for another big event because hopefully we can work together again. I would recommend her services to anyone bride to be or any special event! Laura is the artist you want for your special occasion.

I got married June 29, 2013 in Madison, WI and was having a hard time finding a make-up artist. My bridesmaids and myself liked the idea of having a professional do our make up for the big day but didn't want wild, "clown-like" make up, as our daily make up routine included only bronzer and mascara! I came across Laura online and immediately loved her work; very natural. She was based out of the Milwaukee area but had no problem traveling to Madison bright and early for us! I forwarded some of her work onto my maid of honor to check out and she instantly fell in love as well. Laura was amazing the morning of the big day. She worked flawlessly with our hairstylist and every single bridesmaids and both moms loved their make up. Laura was phenomenal and I would strongly recommend her to all brides-to-be in the Madison/Milwaukee Wisconsin area.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Laura and her work! She did make-up for the bridesmaids, moms, and myself on the day of my wedding and did a great job creating the perfect look for each of the girls that reflected who they are. On the day of the wedding, she made sure we were each happy with our make-up and felt beautiful! Throughout the process, Laura was very easy to work with and always responsive to my questions.
Laura was fun to work with and truly has a passion for what she does as well as working with others. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone!

Laura was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding make-up! She was punctual, professional, and was able to accommodate the requests of everyone who had their make-up done. Laura had a wide variety of products and made me look exactly how I wanted for my wedding day; natural and sophisticated. Everyone in the bridal party as well as the moms loved their make-up applications! I would absolutely recommend her :)

Laura is absolutely wonderful in so many ways! She is really sweet and did such a great job with my makeup and my bridesmaids' makeup. She did my trial a few days before my wedding day and I absolutely loved it!! I showed her a picture of what I wanted and she replicated the makeup in the picture. I had my bachelorette party that night and she came early to my hotel to make sure I didn't miss any of it which was so nice of her! She also chose the perfect lip color for me and brought me the lipstick and lipgloss to keep for touchups on my wedding day! I thought that was a really nice touch! She did the exact amount of coverage that I wanted and my makeup stayed on perfectly the entire day (I got it done earlier because my ceremony was at 1:30 p.m.). I woke up the next day and it still looked flawless. I had tried other airbrush makeup artists before my wedding day and none compared to Laura! I would most definitely use her again and I would recommend her to any bride!

I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist for my wedding. Laura was so great to work with and made me feel beautiful. Any chances I made were never an issue and her pricing was so reasonable. She was able to get through my whole bridal party, my mother and myself in what seemed like no time at all. I would recommend her to everyone I know. The best part of it all was the makeup lasted ALL DAY with only minor touch ups. She is truly amazing. I can't thank her enough.

Laura flew out to Napa, California for my wedding makeup + makeup for the entire bridal party / mothers. Everyone felt perfect and beautiful, and Laura was a force of calmness for everyone in the bridal suite that day. She even took a few minutes to make the grumpy ring bearer laugh and smile!
She had my other vendors - the hair stylist and photographer - saying they wished she lived in California so they could collaborate all the time. They said its rare to find someone who does air brush makeup and who does it so well! She's the best. You can be confident you'll look absoultely perfect with Laura.

Words can't express how happy I am that I found Laura Hiatt! She is amazing! I planned my wedding from out of state 1000 miles away, and she was incredibly helpful & responsive. I came home the week before my wedding and had my trial on a Tuesday & left feeling so beautiful! I joked to my mom & friends that I was "kind of in love with myself" after my trial because I looked so pretty! She is SO flexible -- I originally told Laura to meet us at 11AM on my wedding day, but meant to get back to her and ask if she could come at 10:30 instead... but I forgot. On the morning of my wedding, I sent her an email (I didn't even have to call) to see if she could make it at 10:30 instead. She wrote me back RIGHT away, told me she originally planned on 11 but would leave right away, and she arrived at about 10:30 - a very last minute request & she followed through! She did my moms makeup, my mother-in-law's makeup, my sister's (MOH) makeup, a bridesmaid's makeup and my makeup and ALL of us looked fabulous and we were all so happy with the result! One of my bridesmaids decided not to get her makeup done, but on the day of the wedding, she had some acne she was having trouble hiding. Laura offered to airbrush her and made her acne invisible - for no cost. My makeup, my MOH's makeup, my trial, false lashes, and a goodie bag of lipstick, lipgloss, oil wipes, mascara and mints (so sweet of her) were ALL included for such a great price, which was unbeatable by any other makeup artist I contacted. Laura is so sweet and is truly talented, and I can't thank her for making me beautiful on my big day. I HIGHLY suggest Laura Hiatt and I hope I get to work with her again!

I decided I wanted a professional MUA for my wedding last minute, and my sister found Laura last minute. I live in Cali but my wedding was in Milwaukee so I didnt have a lot of opportunities to check people out in advance. She had excellent reviews on yelp so we went with her. She was beyond flexible working with our hectic schedule and fitting a consultation for me with only a days notice. I didn't have an exact look I was going for and let her use her judgement, I absolutely LOVED the wedding day look she created. She was great taking suggestions when I wanted something a little different too. Not only did Laura give me a beautiful, natural/romantic look for mh wedding, she was so sweet to work with. On my wedding day she gave me a sweet card and a small gift bag with lipstick, lipgloss, and mascara so I could reapply after she left. It was the nicest touch, and given how much she charged, very generous and unexpected. Lastly, 3 extra people day of decided they wanted their MU done and she fit them in no problem. You will not find a better MUA in Milwaukee, and for the price you definitely cannot beat it.

While hesitant to hire a make up artist for my wedding, I am so glad I did. I can honestly say that without Laura I would not have been able to pull off looking rather great on my wedding day. Looking at my wedding pictures, the results speak for themselves and I am so grateful to Laura that she did such an amazing job. Thank you so very much.

I would not recommend this vendor. Although the airbrush foundation was applied, my satisfaction ended there. The eye makeup left so much to be desired. After spending hundreds of dollars on myself and my bridal party most of us redid the majority of our makeup. Also the artist was 40 mins late, did not apologize, and did not try to make conversation saying that "she isn't a morning person." The other artist that she brought with "Taylor" was very personable and the girls who had their makeup done by Taylor were all happy.

Makeup by L. Hiatt responded with the following comments:

It saddens me to read reviews like this. Unfortunately, nothing of this review is true. I was not 40 minutes late, and I called my client to let her know that I would be 5 minutes late while apologizing at the same time. I also did her makeup exactly the way she wanted during her bridal trial which see seemed to love. When I ask the bride and each bridesmaid what they think and if they are happy with it - they tell me that they love it or tell me they want something added or changed. No one from this bridal partied had a problem with the makeup that they brought up. As a makeup artist, I can only do what you ask. Finally, I never said to her that I was not a morning person because I do morning weddings almost every weekend. I am very passionate about my work and to read reviews like this upset me. I love what I do and I do my best to provide the best service for everything that I work with.

I'm not sure how much worse of an experience one can have with a makeup artist. We had a contract established for Laura to do our wedding makeup, including a deposit, 10 months in advance. A month in advance we scheduled a makeup trial at her home in Menomonee Falls, WI. We arrived at the scheduled appt time, but Laura was not present, did not pick up her phone (nor pick up her cell). We were informed by a stranger at the door that Laura "had other committments", which turned out to be she double-booked herself. After we left a voicemail and email, she exhibited little flexibility in rescheduling the trial SHE missed...flaked and cancelled her contract with us 4 days before the wedding. If you would like to avoid a potential situation like this, you might want to search for an alternate makeup artist. We have the email chain of Laura scheduling and cancelling her contract with us, & are happy to provide this with all interested should Laura rebutt this review.

She did refund us the deposit we made immediately.

Makeup by L. Hiatt responded with the following comments:

This situation I feel terrible about. For the first time in almost 3 years I double booked. I have never done that before. I was not able to respond to the client that evening due to the lateness of when I arrived back home, but I did contact her first thing in the morning expressing my sincerest apologies. I let her know that her trial would be free given the circumstances and that I would be available at several times the rest of the week. Unfortunately, none of these times work for the bride. I expressed my apologies, but I truly had no other times available that week. I went ahead and found her another Makeup Artist who was actually doing her hair for the wedding day. The bride seemed fine with that and I refunded her initial $50 deposit. I was informed that the wedding was beautiful and the bride looked amazing the day of the wedding. Unfortunate things happen and I am greatly sorry for double booking the bride, but I was able to find a solution to a problem.

I am getting married August 24th and Laura said she was available to do my bridal parties makeup, after weeks of conversations via email - I receive an email that she is going with another Bride. This is a Bride's worst nightmare! Brides -- don't go with her because you never know when she will cancel on you and you will be on the lookout for another makeup artist. What Laura did was highly unprofessional and has caused me a lot of stress, especially since I don't live in the state where my wedding is!

Makeup by L. Hiatt responded with the following comments:

This is a Makeup Artist's biggest frustration. I am not even going to dispute this because I did not work with this bride at all only communicated through email. The only thing I will do is kindly respond. It is listed on my wedding rates document that submitting a $50 deposit will reserve your wedding date. My dates available are a first come first serve basis. I had not received a deposit from this bride, but I did receive one from another bride looking at this date. That is how things are and honestly that is how this business is. I cannot simply hold dates in hopes that a bride will pick me. You must submit a deposit otherwise that date is open to everyone else. Reviews like this are frustrating, but I can understand that she is under a lot of stress and I know this upset her. It is frustrating for me because I work really hard at what I do and do my best to be as flexible as possible to these brides.
