Susan Lim is amazing. She is professional, responsive, and extremely talented. She did make-up for me, my sister, and my mother. Her process is extensive. She does a pre-consultation, a lengthy trial, and then the actual make-up session. Susan gives a lot of logistical information up front and asks for a lot of information also. However, that is what I loved about her. She obviously wants to tailor the make-up and style to the individual. She asked for style preferences, good pictures of make-up, bad pictures of make-up which I had many (I am asian and have been in many weddings before and the make-up artist does not have any idea what to do with my face. One person actually asked me if I had a bruise on my face.)

She is phenomenal. On the day of, she was so kind and accommodating to my mother, did amazing make-up for the entire family that stayed on my face in the 90 plus degree heat, and made me feel beautiful and like myself. While pricer than other artists I was looking at, I do not regret a single penny because she made my wedding day special and made me feel beautiful.

Susan was one of my favorite vendors to work with - professional, attentive to detail and a great personality. After my make up trial Susan gave me a call to offer some suggestions for changes that may look better on me and I can tell she genuinely cares for her clients and is really passionate about her work. During my wedding, I had my make up on for 14 hours including being outside in 90 degrees weather for a good portion of the afternoon and my make up lasted all day and night without any issues. I highly recommend Susan to be your make up artist!

I absolutely LOVED working with Susan for my wedding. Susan not only responds in a timely manner, but she also truly cares to work with you to see what style of make-up you want for your special day. She doesn't try to push her opinions on you, but she really tries to get to know you and what you like, which I appreciated. My wedding day was super HOT and humid and it was all outdoors (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception). Even with this crazy hot weather, I received so many compliments from all my guests saying that I looked flawless throughout the entire day. That airbrush makeup with Susan's skills = MAGIC. If you're having an outdoor wedding, I highly recommend getting airbrush makeup.

Susan Lim's makeup services was worth every penny. Her calm and efficient manner and attention to detail made her stand out as a professional. But it is her artistry that is off the charts amazing. I've never looked better than I did on my wedding day! She not only made my traditional Korean mother happy with her makeup, but also my Caucasian mother-in-law thrilled with hers. I also worried that getting married in the dead of summer in DC would mean my makeup would sweat off my face. None of it did and even after a night of dancing, my makeup looked fantastic! I highly, highly recommend Susan!

Susan was nothing but absolutely amazing to work with as my makeup artist for our wedding. She was highly recommended to me by several of my girlfriends who had her as their makeup artist for their weddings. I contacted her as soon as we had booked our venue and set our date because I knew I wanted to have her be my makeup artist. She made me feel like a gorgeous bride by accentuating my features. She also did a wonderful job for both my mother and mother-in-law. From the initial email contact to the day of the wedding, her artistry, attention to detail, timeliness, sincerity, clear communication, and professionalism were all qualities that made her stand apart from other experiences I have had with makeup artists.

As I typically do not wear too much makeup on a daily basis, I highly recommend the makeup trial before the wedding as this session provided me the opportunity to work with Susan on what look I wanted for the day of. As she gives a detailed questionnaire before the trial, I knew what to expect during the trial and she was also able to know what I was looking for as well. I appreciated this as there were no surprises on the day of the wedding and she is completely responsive to your comfort level.

I went with airbrush makeup as our wedding was at the end of July and I tend to sweat - my makeup did not smudge or change in any manner for the 15+ hours I had it on, even with a few tears here and there. For brides who would like to have a wonderful experience with a makeup artist who is truly talented, I highly recommend Susan!

I really really appreciate Susan. She is like the guarantee of a wonderful wedding. She can make whatever you want. I asked her to do Korean style makeup, which is very different from American makeup look, and she gave me something way beyond my expectation. What I need to do is just showing her a picture and answering a few questions. All my guests are impressed by my makeup and hair, the ones who plan to get married asked her contact again and again. If she is available, don't hesitate to hire her!

Susan was fantastic to work with throughout the whole wedding process, from start to finish. She was very responsive to any questions and concerns that we had, and was always very prompt with returning emails. She offered great advice and suggestions in terms of look, and was super laid-back and easy to work with. None of my bridal party really wears make-up on a regular basis, but she was able to create looks for all of us that were beautiful and fit our personalities. Best of all, the make-up lasted the entire day, even with the Virginia humidity. I loved working with Susan and would highly recommend putting your trust in her to make you feel beautiful on your wedding day!

Susan is truly an artist - she made over myself, 7 out of 8 of my bridesmaids, my mother, flower girl and grand mother and we were all absolutely STUNNING. Her makeup application is just so flawless, stayed put all night and I received a million compliments. Would use her over and over again and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. She's absolutely lovely, listens to all concerns, is flexible, quick at responding to any questions, and is a true professional.

I was referred by a friend to have Susan do my makeup on my wedding day. I didn't even shop around and I was very comfortable with the decision knowing she would do a great job based on all the positive feedbacks. I was actually very excited to see what Susan could do for me at the trial as I never really liked any professional makeup done on me in the past. Susan was very professional and listened to my likes and dislikes. She was also very friendly and easy to work with. She always gave me the freedom to make my own decisions and never pressured me into getting any additional services that I didn't need.

When I first saw myself in the mirror at the trial, I was amazed. I loved it (first time ever I liked my make up) and that was the look I wanted to go for. Also, before my make up trial, I had my hair trial with my hair up as a bun, butI had been debating if I should keep it or go with half up half down style (I was leaning towards the latter). When I got to Susan for the make up trial, Susan mentioned the hair bun wasn't me without having me telling her that was what I was struggling with as well. I still remembered Susan said "you got the dress and make up that is you, but your hair style is not," and that was definitely straight to the point! I was so glad Susan mentioned that and I made up my mind to go with the half up half down style. I'm still very thankful for that because it definitely wouldn't have achieved the look I was aiming for if I were to go with the bun.

Of course, my makeup was flawless on the wedding day and it lasted the whole day!! She also got to the hotel earlier than the contracted time so she could have everything set up and ready to go. I also received so many compliments on my wedding day! Susan is truly gifted, amazing, and super friendly. I truly appreciated her work and I will definitely recommend Susan to any brides looking for a MUA. Susan, I will definitely reach out if I need professional make up done in the future :)

If I could give Susan more than a 5/5 I would. I cannot express to you all how great Susan Lim was during my wedding planning experience. From the beginning I knew finding a make-up artist I felt comfortable with was honestly one of the most important details. Make-up on your wedding day needs to be exactly the way dreamed it to be, and Susan truly went above and beyond to make me feel pretty and comfortable on the day. The trail session I had with Susan was awesome and gave me such a feeling of confidence in her work. Susan not only was a great make-up artist, but she was also a pleasure to work with. I felt like I was talking to a friend and that really helped with my nerves! I would recommend Susan to anyone looking for an extremely talented, clean, & passionate professional..Susan is an amazing make-up artist for your wedding or any special occasion! You will not regret picking her!! DO IT!
