Susan was recommended by many of my friends. After having the consultation call with her and going in for the makeup trial, I could see why. She was thorough and asked detailed questions to ensure she understood the look and feel the bride wanted for the wedding and made recommendations based on her expertise. Susan was responsive to my emails throughout the planning process and was punctual on the day-of. I loved my look on my big day and was complimented throughout the day and night. Thank you, Susan.

Throughout the whole wedding planning process, asking Susan to do my hair and makeup was the best decision I made. Susan was always prompt and professional with emailing me and she was very thorough with answering all of my questions. We discussed my skin type, if I have any allergies to certain products, my normal amount of makeup I wear, etc. She's very skilled, talented, and attentive. For my engagement photoshoot and wedding; my photographer couldn't stop raving about how well my makeup looked. I highly highly recommend Susan to other brides and I hope to have Susan do my makeup and hair for future events! She's so sweet and I'm thankful to have gained a friend.

I got married in December 2016 and hired Susan for my hair and makeup. However, I've known since 2011 that if I ever got married, I would hire Susan. I even paid for her to come up to NY from DC! She is simply amazing at what she does. In 2011, makeup was only her side gig but she did the makeup for my friend's wedding for which I was a bridesmaid. Susan was so talented and had such good "bedside manner", and she's only gotten better since she turned this into her career!

If you stalk Susan's wedding makeup photos on Facebook (like I did) or on Instagram, it's very obvious she's a great makeup artist. I don't need to elaborate on this because you can see it for yourself but I will point out that she's great at making EVERYONE look great, regardless of bone/facial structure. I'm Asian and I'm very picky about my makeup application, especially eye makeup, but I trusted Susan and was thrilled with how everything turned out. She also did the makeup for my bridesmaids, three of whom are Asian and one of whom is half Asian/half Caucasian, and they all looked amazing.

Now, on to the stuff you can't tell from pictures. Susan was responsive, thorough and flexible through all my communication with her leading up to the wedding. She worked patiently with me on my contract and the day-of schedule until I was comfortable with everything. Susan is also professional and works tirelessly. She single-handedly did my makeup and hair, makeup for my four bridesmaids, and hair for two family members, and she kept to the schedule which started at 6am and ended well into the afternoon.

What I appreciated the most about Susan, however, was how she was a gentle but steady force on the day of the wedding. Even though my trial the night before went fine, the day of I suddenly didn't like my hairstyle. Susan tried 7 different looks on me, calmed me down, and kept me focused until we finally found what worked. I highly recommend Susan and will always be grateful to her for her help!!

Susan's work is amazing. She really takes the time to understand the look you are going for and what you like/don't like. Like me, she is really focused on the details and I could tell she takes a lot of pride in her work. Because I had a large bridal party, I had to book Susan and her assistant. At first, I thought the girls getting the assistant would get the short end of the stick, but that was not the case at all! The assistant was just as good as Susan! All of my bridesmaids looked beautiful and natural (with a side of glam). The false lashes are a must-have. A lot of my girls (including me) were hesitant at first, but boy did we love them and feel fabulous!

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!
