I had an amazing experience with Carmen. We had a great trial run, and she was responsive to my hesitation with fake eyelashes. She was so warm and accommodating throughout my special day and made me and my family look absolutely gorgeous- the airbrush foundation made me look flawless :). She was the perfect person for my wedding, and I highly recommend her to other brides!

Carmen was awesome from beginning to end. With our crazy schedule she worked out the trial session at our place on a Saturday! The wedding day too was a bit of a fiasco at the venue but she made it all work and everyone turned out gorgeous. The hotel was blocked off at the entrance so she and her assistant walked from the building across the street in the rain carrying all their essentials to get to the hotel and never mentioned it once. Carmen listened to everything we wanted some heavier and some lighter and did the makeup just as each girl wished. She did a fantastic job and the pictures turned out beautiful.

Carmen did an amazing job on not only my makeup, but the rest of my bridal party as well. She was even able to squeeze in two more people that were unexpected. I received so many compliments on my makeup and how beautiful it was. I highly recommend using the airbrush system that Carmen has. My makeup looked flawless and was so light on my face. Even when I teared up during the ceremony my makeup stayed and did not run! She is the best as what she does.

Carmen Martinez did the makeup for my mother, grandmother, 3 bridesmaids, and myself on the day of our wedding. She came in at 9:30 in the morning and worked all day (past 3:30) to make sure we all looked beautiful. Carmen is a very sweet, genuine person and she actually listens to you and how you want to look for your wedding. The makeup lasted all night and my normally greasy face stayed pretty greaseless until the end. Before the wedding, I had nightmares that I would be walking down the aisle with no makeup on… thankfully we found Carmen and we all looked beautiful! Thank you Carmen!

Carmen is extremely talented, professional, and was a pleasure to be around while we prepared the morning of the wedding.

At the trial, she willingly and happily understood and executed the smallest changes (personal preferences like when I mentioned I like extending my eyeliner the slightest bit!).

I thought my trial was amazing and was even more impressed with her work on the wedding day- I couldn't have been happier! She made me look exactly like I wanted to!
My makeup lasted and looked great through all the hugs and kisses from guests and dancing all night!


Thank you Carmen!!

Jessica, you were such a fun-loving bride to do makeup for. All your attendants were such lovely ladies. I'll always remember from this point on to stay out of the way when champagne bottles are being opened. Wouldn't want to lose an eye (LOL). I wish you the very best!!! Blessings always, Carmen

Carmen was amazing!!!! She did beautiful work and made me feel so comfortable. She came to my house on my schedule, did a gorgeous "trial run" for my engagement pictures. I got so many compliments on those pictures. I knew the wedding day make-up would be even better. Her fees were affordable but the service she provided was top notch. I love the airbrush feature. My skin looked so smooth and it stayed on all night. The lashes she put on me made my eyes look amazing. I didn't even feel them after a few minutes
All in all, if you are looking for someone that knows what she's doing and does it with the sweetest heart.....book her!!! Book her now!!!! She was the best!!! One of my favorite vendors!!!! You won't be sorry.

All in all, if you are looking for someone that knows what she's doing and does it with the sweetest heart.....book her!!! Book her now!!!! She was the best!!! One of my favorite vendors!!!! You won't be sorry. Read less

Carmen was super flexible with our schedule and very prompt to help out with any concern that we had.
My mom (Mother of the Bride) never wore make up in her life, so it really was outsite her comfort zone. Carmen kept puting make up on her in stages and if she did not like it she improved it to her comfort.
Since we were destination wedding, I needed to have everything done in timly manner...and Carmen went above and beyond, to satisfy our demend.

Carmen did my makeup for my wedding, as well as makeup for 4 bridesmaids, one junior bridesmaid, my mother, and mother-in-law, and she was fabulous! First, and most importantly, we all loved our makeup. I looked great, if I do say so myself, and one of my bridesmaids commented that her makeup looked better on my wedding day than on her own! Second, she was quick, getting all 8 of us done with time to spare. Third, I thought she charged a very reasonable fee (and she didn't even charge us for the junior bridesmaid's makeup). She was also very responsive to me when I let her know a few weeks before the wedding that I wanted to change my makeup a bit, and she emailed me to let me know that she was going to be away for the few days before my wedding in case I was trying to get in touch with her, which I really appreciated. Finally, she gave me a great goody bag with the MAC lipstick of my choice, blotting papers, and more. It was great. We were all thrilled with Carmen's work and I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks, Carmen!

Carmen was a delight to work with from day 1. She was very accommodating especially when it came to scheduling the trial, since my schedule is so hectic. I was very pleased with the trial and I feel like she really listened to what I wanted. On the day of the wedding she got to the hotel on time and started working right away. There was a moment when I started panicking thinking my bridal party wasn't going to be ready on time but Carmen was very calm, did not rush and the end result was just amazing. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful and the makeup lasted all night.
I would definitely work with Carmen again and I highly recommend her!

Carmen thank you so much for being a part of a very special day, for your professionalism and your amazing talent.

Carmen was absolutely fabulous. She provided makeup services for me, my matron of honor, mother, and grandmother. Her makeup skills are amazing and she is so sweet, professional, and caring. I received compliments all night long on how beautiful the makeup was. The makeup stayed put all night long, even after an outside ceremony and an hour of outdoor photos. I never had to retouch.

Best of all, she took fabulous care of my grandmother, who has Alzheimer's, and helped make her look like the grandmother I remember from before she became ill. That meant so much to me and my family.

I wish i could have my makeup done everyday by Carmen!

Carmen was amazing to work with. She is very professional and really friendly. I did a makeup trial with her several months before my wedding (because I lived in another state). On the day of my wedding, she brought her notes from my trial, but suggested some different colors. The end result looked so much better than what she did in my trial (and the trial was good too). I was extremely happy with her makeup suggestions, and I got compliments all day long on my wedding day. And, yes, the makeup lasted all day. She did my makeup at 10:30am, my wedding was at 4pm and my day ended at 11pm. I only had to touch up my lipstick. I would definitely work with Carmen again, and I would recommend her to anybody.

Carmen was my makeup artist on my wedding day (04/10/2010) as well as most of my girls. When I say she nailed it, I mean I couldn't change one thing about the way she did my makeup on my special day. I felt and looked fantastic and gorgeous! I'll never forget how perfect everything was when I looked in the mirror after my makeup was done! I was speechless! Carmen did my trial as well which is just so helpful. Sometimes you don't know what you really want until after you see it, and Carmen really listens to you and will keep working with you until you are beyond satisfied!

I couldn't be happier that I choose to go with her. My girls loved her as well, one of them even called her after the wedding to say thank you, and to let her know my make up stayed perfect the whole night! She is so sweet and professional and incredibly priced you can't and won't find anyone else like her.

I have been in many weddings as a bridesmaid, and I finally had my time to be the bride, and from my experience with previous wedding vendors, Carmen had to be one of the best makeup artists I have ever encountered. She was on time to the location, was extremely professional, and did a fabulous job on me and my family. The makeup lasted all through the night, and my wedding photos look fantastic thanks to her. I would definitely recommend using her for any special event/occassion. She is a gem :)

Delia,

You are one of the sweestest brides I've ever known. You were so attentive to the needs of your wedding party. Normally, it's the other way around, but it shows what a thoughtful individual you are. I had a wonderful time being your makeup artist and thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of your special day. Many blessings!

Carmen was very professional and very nice as well. She was very understanding and accomodating. Her prices are very good for her services and she also provides a touch up kit for brides which was really great (especially the Shout wipes when we had a little accident). Overall, I am very happy with her work on both my bridal shower and my wedding day. The makeup was beautiful and my eyes looked gorgeous. THANK YOU CARMEN!

Shadows Makeup Artistry was wonderful!! Carmen did my makeup for my wedding along with my 2 sisters who were my maids of honor. We looked beautiful! The best part was it looked amazingly natural. It didn't appear that we had makeup caked all over are face. We achieved the "flawless yet natural look" that magazine and television models have. Best of all, the wedding lasted all night...nearly 12 hours! I highly reccommend Shadows Makeup Artistry for any event that you need to look your absolute best. Pure Perfection!

Carmen is AMAZING! She is very professional and friendly. Carmen came to my hotel room for the trial run and on the wedding day actually beat me to the hotel! My wedding party looked amazing, our makeup was so fabulous. My mother-in-law was nervous as she does not wear a lot of makeup, but Carmen put her at ease and made my mother-in-law look natural, but just a little enhanced. Carmen really listened to what I wanted and made it happen. She did not try to be too pushy on how she would do it, but gave a professional opinon that worked with what I wanted and made me look great. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, Carmen is a 20!! Highly recommended!

She is everything you are looking for! I first met Carmen at a bridal show, from the very beginning I knew I had found my makeup artist. I work odd hours and tend to do all my vendor contacts via email, Carmen always responded to them quickly and answered all my questions. I even had some unforeseen things happen on the wedding day, like my sister not only being LATE but needed makeup 1/2 hour before photos were being shot, Carmen not only stayed and waited for her, but did what she could in a time crunch and my sister looked flawless. Everyone's makeup stayed on all night. Trust me girls, I was MELTING from dancing and my makeup stayed on all night, I was kinda sad to wipe it off at the end of the night. I got compliments all night long on my makeup, the makeup really makes a difference in the photos, it was comfortable, and very affordable. I would (and have) recommended her to everyone!!

Carmen from shadow makeup artistry was a wonderful and nice person to work with.

I never wear makeup and I'm very particular about covering up my freckles. I did the airbrushing and it came out amazing!

At the trial I told Carmen what what I wanted and she did it. I had her change a few things and she had no problems changing them. Once my wedding came around I had changed my mind a little again and she still exceeded my expectations and did exactly what I wanted.

My girls loved her as well. She was a little more expensive than I would have wanted to pay, and more for my girls than we have paid at past weddings but well worth it.


Thank you!!

She did an awesome job on my wedding day and I couldn't be happier! I never tried air spray foundation before. It was fantastic. It stayed all day and surprisingly light, much lighter than liquid foundation. With our humidity issue, air spray is the way to go ladies! Give it try, you won't be disappointed.

Carmen was a delight to work with. Thanks to her, I can honestly say I looked gorgeous on my wedding day! I've always struggled with acne so it was important to find someone that could do airbrush makeup, without charging an arm and a leg. The trial and wedding day makeup cost $150. She was always on time and very responsive with phone and email. The makeup lasts great and looks amazing in photos. She does makeup on site (Boca Raton & surrounding areas) which made my wedding day much less stressful because I didn't have to worry about traveling to appts. Would definitely recommend!

Carmen was very sweet and professional. She did a wonderful job with my makeup. I have some imperfections with uneven skin tone and I breakout when stressed but she was able to provide flawless coverage with airbrush makeup. She also came a bit earlier and set up in a really great area with awesome lighting for the photographer to take pictures. I like a bit of the glitz and the glam so she gave me a beautiful brown smokey eye with nude lips. Even though I asked to be dolled up it still looked natural. All in all I highly recommend her if you want a great look on a very special day. In addition, I did a lot of research since I'm a bit frugal and she was the best price for an onsite trial and destination make-over. The only reason I gave her 4 of out 5 is because she is pretty busy so it was a little difficult to get the trail date when I needed it for one of my parties. However, she was able to give me a wonderful trial for my grandmother's 80th bday party. I received positive feedback from everyone :) Thank you Carmen!

Since I have a terribly scared back, I needed an airbrush make-up artist. I contacted Carmen for this purpose. She is very professional and a perfectionist when it comes to eye make-up. However, I really feel like she did not understand that the picture I brought for the trial was what I wanted. I don't wear make-up and I wanted a really natural look. At my trial, I ended up with very very very dark eyes and dark lips, which was not at all what I had asked for. She tried to correct it and let me know that she would do something different for the wedding, which she did. It was a lot lighter, but was still a little bit much for me. It photographed beautifully however and lasted all night without a glitch despite 100 degree weather.
The major problem was my back: it was extremely spotted and sticky. My photographer kept telling her that it looked terrible and had her touch it up several times, to no avail. Now all the pictures are being photoshopped.
Also, Carmen works with a Michele, who does hair. The bun she made stayed all night, but the bobby pins were very visible in many of my pictures, which I can't say is flattering.
The price was reasonable, but not a deal for what I got.

Michele,
I am sorry that you were dissatisfied with my services. I take great pride in trying to provide my clients with an exceptional product as well as great customer service. I am very sorry about the results for your back. I really should have addressed that during the trial, and I take responsibility for not having done so during our consultation. Backs and acne scarring can be a bit trickier to cover. I do recall asking the photographer several times how it looked in the pictures, and the photographer guiding me in trying to remedy the situation. In the end, she seemed okay (not perfect) but certainly okay with the results. I wish you many blessings!
