Susan is an ARTIST. She does quality work in a timely manner. I never imagined I would look and feel so beautiful on my wedding day. I suggest you keep an open mind, as her recommendations are excellent. For example, Susan suggested I add a shimmery highlight and lip gloss to my look. I was initially opposed to that, but I trusted her and it turned out great! She KNOWS what she's talking about, especially when it comes to what'll look good in bridal photography. I really appreciated the 2-sided makeup application she does during the trial, as you can see 2 completely different looks on your face at one time. However, if you don't have the extra time or money to do a trial, it doesn't even matter; it's not necessary. If you are at all interested in Susan's work, just BOOK HER. You will not be disappointed. Overall, Susan is professional, considerate, and a master at her craft. Hiring Susan was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding.

Susan was such an amazing makeup artist. When I was trying to book her she had another wedding the same day but woke up extra early and squeezed me in at 5:30 AM. Before booking her she sent me a contract which was very detailed and very professional, she also was took the time to call me and discuss/ answer any questions I had which was super nice because it made me feel very secure. On the day of, I was so thankful she was the person who started my day off. She made me feel so calm and confident and she did an incredible job! I asked for natural and she did natural, she also knew my photographer so she catered to the lighting they used which was super awesome! She also did my tattoo cover up, which everyone at my wedding was totally shocked at the fact it wasn't there anymore. They were like "did you get it lasered?" She was amazing and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else for special day.Whoever is looking for a makeup artist, I would say go book her and trust whatever she says, she knows exactly what she's doing. She is amazing, and I am so grateful for her!!!! and I would definitely book her again and she teaches group classes which I'm definitely going try to book as soon as summer is over.

Susan was amazing to work with on my wedding day! She was so sweet and extremely professional. I never had to worry because she was so detail oriented and reliable from the beginning. Her make-up skills are truly amazing! I never felt more beautiful and that's that way it should be on your wedding day. She also made all my bridesmaids and my mother feel special and glamorous. She listened to their make-up comfort level and was able to accommodate each of their different looks and requests. I would highly recommend Susan to anyone, you will not be disappointed.

Susan Lim is the best! she absolutely made me feel beautiful inside and out. I booked her for my engagement photo session make up and Wedding day make-up and both turned out flawlessly. She's just a great listener and allows the client to really shine through the make-up. She's very detailed so if you have a an idea of what kind of look you are interested in she will definitely ask the right questions to achieve it. Shes is also very patient, this helps with such brides like myself who don't really know what they want since they have never had profession do their make-up. The quality of my pictures definitely stood out more with a professional like Susan to make me look absolutely look GORGE on my special day! Thanks to her my husband couldn't take his eyes off me that day which was exactly what I wanted.

Absolutely stunning work by Susan. She is so sweet, talented and professional. I've been admiring and following Susan's work for several years now, and knew that she's the one I wanted to work with. She was able to accommodate my trial on a short notice despite her busy schedule and it was such an easy and relaxing experience.
Susan totally fulfilled my wish for a simple and natural look. I received so many wonderful compliments throughout the day. So happy I got to work with Susan and I'd work with her again for any future events/shoots.

I can't even begin to describe how incredibly talented Susan is. I'm sure many people say they don't really wear make up, but I wash my face and use face lotion then walk out. Saying that, Susan took the time to explain what she was doing and why. She also took the time to listen to what I was looking for and also share her professional opinion.

Initial contact: I contacted Susan around her leave and she was still extremely responsive and detailed. She is professional, direct, and honest about her expectations and flexible for changes I had to make. I rushed to book her (over a year in advance) without a trial because she was already getting inquiries for the same date - best decision I made. Susan is high in demand so make sure you **book as soon as possible** especially if you do it on a holiday weekend like I did.

Trial: I had my trial 3 weeks before my wedding. I was nervous and Susan was very understanding. I went with the opposite of what I initially wanted - natural, barely there make up - to much bolder (very bold for someone like me) because Susan knew how to accentuate my features and also keep me looking like myself. Her priority was to make sure I was comfortable and satisfied with each aspect.

Susan has high standards which is apparent through the quality of her work. I am so satisfied and cannot wait for the next excuse to get my make up done. She has a way of engaging with you during the process that helped me feel calm, comfortable, and confident for the entire day. On a more personal note, Susan is a wonderful new friend and I am so happy to have met her!

Susan was the best vendor I worked with for my May 2015 wedding, and I only chose good vendors. I was anxious about a lot of the wedding planning process but I was not worried about how I would look because I had confidence in Susan's talents as a makeup artist. Trust me, you do NOT want to hire a makeup artist who will only do an "okay" job. I received so many compliments about my beauty on my wedding day and I knew they were genuine compliments due to great makeup. Susan was so sweet and professional to work with. No complaints!!! I have been recommending her to everyone I know.
