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!

Susan is a wonderful makeup artist! I knew she was a popular choice but I understood why after working with her. My makeup looked gorgeous on the day of the wedding and received lot of compliments. She worked with each of my bridesmaids to create a look for them and they all loved their makeup as well. I would definitely recommend her! She's a talented artist and it was pleasure getting to know her and having her as my makeup artist.

I had a wonderful experience working with Susan for my wedding! From her initial email, I could tell she was very organized, detail-oriented, and truly committed to making her clients happy. She was the only makeup artist I interviewed because I was so confident in her abilities and professionalism after our phone consultation - not to mention, her portfolio speaks for itself! Susan was one of the easiest vendors to communicate with during the planning process and she was super responsive to email, which was much appreciated since I planned my own wedding.

Before the trial, Susan had me fill out a detailed questionnaire on my makeup preferences, skin type, and desired look - at the trial, I could tell she read every word. She created different looks, and when I was indecisive, she provided helpful recommendations. She takes every detail into consideration - the dress, hair style, venue, color scheme - to create the most cohesive look. Susan is an experienced artist who knows how to apply makeup to look beautiful on camera, yet still natural in person.

On my wedding day, Susan was prompt and stayed ahead of schedule all morning. She is very personable and made the getting ready process relaxing and fun. She made all of my bridesmaids (of all different ethnicities, skin tones, and skin types) look the most stunning I had ever seen - guests were complimenting our makeup all night. I was beyond thrilled with how my makeup turned out, and it stayed put all night with minimal touch ups, even after taking photos while it was drizzling outside.

From the contract, to the trial, to the wedding day timeline, I could tell that Susan has meticulously designed her business and processes to make her brides' wedding days successful and stress-free. Her talent, professionalism, and passion for her work is unparalleled. I would highly recommend Susan and I already can't wait to work with her again!

Susan knows how to glam you up on your big day! I'm very selective about who does my makeup and have worked with countless makeup artists who didn't really flatter my Asian features. She's professional, timely and cares about her clients. Prior to contracting with Susan, we scheduled a phone consultation where she explained her services and process so I'm fully aware of what I'm getting myself into.
During our trial, she was very thorough and asked the right questions to ensure that we agreed on a look. She even had me fill out a questionnaire prior to our trial so she can get a better understanding of my complexion, makeup preferences, desired look, etc. I also appreciate that she's very clean!
During my wedding day, she arrived on time and successfully achieved the look that I was going for. Susan is very talented and experienced and I was able to fully trust her in beautifying me :)

Having Susan do make-up for my wedding was one of the best choices. She was very responsive from the beginning and called to do a phone consultation. She was very professional but at the same time she was very friendly and approachable. I got to do a trial with her. I'm sure I made it a bit difficult for her since I don't wear any make-up and I just told her I wanted something "natural" which is so subjective. However, she worked with me step by step to make sure that I got the look that I wanted. After the trial she did a follow-up with me to make sure I didn't have any reaction to her make-up and to see if I wanted to change anything. On the day of my wedding, she was on time and did my make-up exactly how I wanted. At the end of the day, my make-up was still intact too. Seriously, you won't regret Susan as your make-up artist. I highly recommend her! :)
