Shalonda, Shalonda, Shalonda!! I have nothing but amazing things to say about her work and professionalism!!

I have had my make-up done professionally tons of times, and have been left unimpressed. I felt like I could have done my face myself with less stress, and saved my money. I found Shalonda on instagram, and maneuvered my way to her website. I stalked her worked for hours before I decided that she had what it took to do my make-up for my wedding. I wanted to look absolutely flawless, and I wanted it to last all day and night.
She arrived at the church before I did on my wedding and was ready for me as soon as I arrived. She was very sweet, and easy to talk to. She asked me what I was looking for, and went to town on my face. She took her time, and made sure I stayed cool, comfortable and relaxed. There was a lot going on in the room and around me, and she seemed to stay calm and collected. She focused on her work, she used clean brushes, talked to me about skin care, and worked her magic.

After she was done, she stuck around to make sure I was settled and happy. Even after my hair was done, she was there to touch my up, touch up my lips, dust my arms and chest with shimmer before I walked down the isle. I looked flawless in all my pictures.

I was so pleased with not only her work, but her patience, and how amazing of a person she is. I was a bridesmaid in another wedding 2 weeks later, and she came to my home, and made up my face again. She was very clean, and respectful of my house and my space.

If I ever need my make-up professionally done again, I will without hesitation be booking with Shalonda.

She is the very best in this area!

Shalonda was excellent. She did my make-up for my wedding and it was wonderful. She created a perfet elegant wedding look without making me look completely different. She listened to my opinions on different looks/colors etc and I was very very happy with the final result. I also cried about 5 times after she applied the make-up and it really didn't smear, smudge or run off. She is quick to reply to emails. Fun to talk to and interacted well with a large group of women getting their hair and make-up done. I've also never seen such a large collection of high quality make-up. She's literally got the entire Ulta and Sephora store in her suitcase! I would definetly contact Shalonda again for any further make-up needs.

Shalonda A Inc. provided absolutely AMAZING makeup services!

I had to search online for someone to do my bridal makeup. I wanted to make sure the artist I chose had experience working with various makeup styles, skin tones, and textures. Many of the wedding makeup sites I came across in Michigan did NOT reflect a wide range of styles or skin tones in their online portfolios. I stumbled upon Shalonda A.'s website through Wedding Wire, and was very impressed with the quality of the website and the online portfolio that was presented; which ranged from hot, trendy editorial styles of makeup to romantic, wedding styles of makeup.

I contacted Shalonda about pricing information and details, and appreciated how informative she was, and forthcoming about pricing information and her policies. Since I was planning a Michigan wedding from Pennsylvania, she had me send her pictures of my face and example pictures of what I wanted my wedding day makeup to look like. I booked her about a year in advance, which is a significant amount of time ahead of schedule to book for makeup, but it gave me peace of mind. Throughout that year, I contacted her on a few occasions about scheduling, skin care, and payments, and she always responded promptly.

We scheduled a makeup trial a month before my wedding, during a time I was visiting in Michigan. She was flexible, and able to meet me where I was for the trial. She was on time, brought all of her own equipment, and walked me through the process. She was personable, and very pleasant. The makeup looked beautiful! She even followed up later that day to see how the makeup held up! The day of the wedding, she met me at my hotel, and was flexible with me running behind schedule. She did my makeup, and a bridesmaid's-- both of which were breathtaking and lasted from 11:30am through the wee hours of the next morning! I've never felt more gorgeous! The only thing we had to touch up that day was our lipgloss!

Shalonda A. is fabulous!

Shalonda A. Inc. has a great sense of professionalism arrived on-time and had me ready in the time I needed worked with my schedule. My experience while in Shalonda's make-up chair was amazing she was very engaging in conversation as I prepared for my wedding day. I didn’t have a make-up trial and didn’t really know how I wanted my make-up to look for my wedding day. Shalonda ask questions to determine my vision of how I wanted to look on my wedding day which I appreciated. My make-up was amazing and looked beautiful in my wedding photos. I was given the lipgloss used during my make-up session to touch-up with on my wedding day. I would recommend Shalonda A. Inc. to future brides and look forward to future events with this vendor.

Shalonda is an incredibly talented and personable artist. Given that I am from the beauty profession I am EXTREMELY picky and she not only met but exceeded my expectations. I was going for vintage, hollywood glam and she got it right the first time around. My entire wedding party, including my Mom gushed about her work as well. Shalonda was able to accomodate different ages, styles, and preferences. It was truly a pleasure and worth every dollar to know I was in good hands on my wedding day. I need to find an excuse to get my makeup done again. Thanks so much.

I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day! Shalonda created the exact look I wanted and the make up held up all day (10am until 2am!) In addition to making my face beautiful she made up 6 of my brides maids, my mom and aunt. These ladies skin tones ranged from fair to deep and they all had great coverage. Shalonda did a great job and made my day less stressful.

She is incredible! She was a complete professional, always prompt with email and phone responses, I was a little late on my wedding day, having to decorate the morning of and then traffic, but she was understanding and patient. I had myself and 3 bridesmaids, she did a spectacular job on everyone, we are not normal makeup people so it was definitely out of our comfort zone, but she made everyone super comfortable and even dealt with toddlers we had running around. Every single comment was how stunning we all looked throughout the night, and the makeup held up ALL night! She is not terribly high on price, especially for what you get, which is incredible makeup services and a lovely person to boot! Thank you Shalonda!

Shalonda is an awesome makeup artist. She is very professional, talented and just a pleasant person--which can help put you at ease on the big day. I'm not used to wearing a lot of makeup, and when I thought my eyes looked too dark, she was very willing to tone things down to my liking. My makeup looked beautiful and natural in all of the pictures. My mom and bridesmaid also loved their makeup.

Shalonda is the TRUTH. She is professional, personable and insanely talented. All of my bridesmaids, both moms and myself utilized her services on the day of my wedding. Everyonelooked great -- and I looked incredible ;-). She was able to create masterpieces on the faces of each of the women, despite our different skin textures, colors and age ranges. If you are getting married in Metro Detroit there is no other option for you. She is amazing.

Words cannot express how happy I was with Shalonda's services for my July 31, 2011 wedding. She did my makeup, my maid of honor and the wedding coordinator. We looked absolutely fabulous. It even held up when I started crying before the wedding, no touch ups needed. She is professional, prompt and very calming for even the most jittery bride. I also had a trial run and I looked gorgeous. The makeup lasted the entire day even when I felt like I was melting (it was hot). Please please do not think twice about using her services you will not be disappointed! Plus my photos looked great.

Shalonda did my makeup for my wedding in September 2006. She also did another wedding shoot a couple weeks later so we could have more Bride & Groom photos. My look on my wedding day was soft and angelic. My look a couple weeks later was the complete opposite a dark smoky eye. Both looks were FAB! She was so great, I used services afterwards for a special event. For every session, she was on time and I was extremely satisfied.

Going to a department store is kind of iffy as far as quality. With Shalonda, you don't have to guess....Your makeup will be FLAWLESS.

I was referred to Shalonda A one month prior to my wedding date due a cancelation with another makeup artist. We had our first conversation via the phone and I immediately felt like she was the one to do my makeup... She was very patient with my questions, knowledgeable, and extremely professional.
On the day of my makeup trial she arrived on time and was very neat & clean with her tools. I was impressed with the supply that she had, various brands, shades & colors.
The day of the wedding, Shalonda A also came to my location and arrived promptly at her designated time. She was not rushed but moved quickly through the bridesmaids so that she could focus her time and energy on me. My makeup and that of my girls came out breathtakingly beautiful. I plan on using Shalonda A for a photography session I have scheduled this coming fall because I was so impressed by the total package.

Shalonda is amazing! I have always been skeptical of people doing my makeup because I have done my own makeup for many years for events, photoshoots and for fun. I have also had my makeup done by other makeup artists while working as a part-time model. No one I have worked with has been able to do my eyebrows perfectly and to my liking --except Shalonda. She is an amazing makeup artist.

I have an Asian-complexion and dry skin that is often difficult to work with, but she made me look flawless on my wedding day (and my bridal shower). I loved how she gives tips and makeup samples to help me keep myself together for my big day! She is a great listener and a pleasure to have around! I can't wait for my next event just so that I can book her to do my makeup again!!

Definitely book her for your next event, you will not be disappointed!

Simply put Shalonda put the pazazz in our special day! The entire night every guest wanted to know who did our makeup. My mother and I both felt like beauty queens the entire day. We were married on April 29, 2011 and I really felt like the belle of the ball. Shalonda was very attentive and she came prepared with everything. She helped me with an area other than my face right before I walked down the aisle. She thought of everything. If you are wondering if the cost is worth it - if Shalonda is your artist it definitely is! My cousin who was also my Maid of Honor is planning to have Shalonda do her makeup in Chicago for her wedding. Everyone was extremely impressed with Shalonda's talent and professionalism - so much so that our photographer wants to refer her to his other clients. Thank you for everything Shalonda - we can't say enough about you!

Shalonda has an outstanding hand when you want to look your best! My family and I will only use Shalonda for our special events. She has done my makeup several times and each time, the results were amazing! She did the makeup for my sister's entire wedding party, 4 years ago, my engagement photography session last year and my wedding party this year.
My sister was in a wedding this past June and her makeup was just phenomenal!
I would strongly recommend Shalonda for any occasion that you want to look your best!

GET SHALONDA. She did makeup for my engagement pictures (we considered that my wedding trial run) and the wedding, as well as makeup for my mom, bridesmaids, flower girls, and a cousin (who popped into the seat when it was empty... lol). She was incredibly accommodating to everyone! Her makeup is PERFECT. Everyone looked gorgeous, it stayed amazingly well throughout the night (and into the next day... *cough*). She was great on time, too, not making anyone feel rushed but doing everyone quickly. She made me pretty enough to make my now husband cry when he saw me, so that's saying something ;) She also got along with everyone well. This might seem like a non-issue, but in my experience, chemistry between the bride/groom/bridal party and a vendor makes a bigger difference than you'd think. She got the biggest kick out of all of us (we're rather twisted in our senses of humor) and was funny herself! It was really a relaxing, great morning getting ready with many thanks to her and Meatta, who does hair and is Shalonda's partner in makeup/hair.

From the initial conversation, Shalonda made me feel comfortable. Originally, I was thinking I could do my own wedding makeup. After viewing Shalonda’s website, I decided that a Makeup Artist isn't a splurge item, it’s a necessity. She arrived early and ready to go. Shalonda also answered a number of makeup questions I had. At the end of my session, my makeup was flawless. Did I saw flawless? It was flawless and resilient. I received compliments from the point of application at 2pm to the end of my reception at 11pm. Which is saying allot being that I started taking pictures around Detroit at 4pm in 90-95 degree weather.

And the Number One reason I'm providing this feedback is...My husband is a graphic artist and very particular about colors, shading etc. And he absolutely loved my makeup. Shalonda is great and I'm referring all of my newly engaged friends.
