Tracey did my makeup on my wedding day and all of my bridesmaids and mom! Everyone looked so breautiful! I never wear makeup so I was very nervous about getting it done (especially since the lady who did my makeup at a previous wedding I was in caked makeup on my face). I did a trial with Tracey and LOVED the way I looked that it almost made me want to start wearing makeup! She was able to repeat my trial on my wedding day and it looked great! Natural but beautiful (much more pretty than I could have looked on my own without it)! She also said she would help me pick out colors/etc for my face! So many people have asked me for her contact info! I was soooo happy with how everyone looked that day!

I could not be more pleased with the outcome of my hair and make up which was provided to me by the team of Amanda and Tamara.

All 6 of my bridesmaids and myself agreed to use their services on the day of the wedding. Not a single thing went wrong, even when one of the bm's showed up with a black eye from a sporting injury the week before. Not a single person knew after the beautiful work that Tamara did. The makeup lasted all day on all of us and each of us felt that it was just enough to make the photos pop, but not in any way overbearing or as if it changed our overall appearance.

Our hair was AMAZING. Myself and 4 of the bm's did not want an "updo" but something classy and elegant. Every single one of us LOVED the outcome and had many compliments all day and night.

I have to disagree with the other reviews before mine. I found Mandy and Tamara a joy to work with. They listened well, and were open to any suggestive feedback and/or concerns. I did not encounter any of the problems the other two girls had. I found this team to be professional, courteous and absolutely the best make-up and hairstylist team around.

I have mixed feelings about this one. I initially booked the service with Amanda Moran before TMT Ink was formed.

My hair and make-up was GREAT the day of. Amanda did my hair and make-up artist Tamara did my make-up. The hair and make-up lasted all day long and it really looked like me, which was important.

Amanda was great and quick responding to my questions but I did incur some problems in the planning process. Our initial correspondence she gave me the price quote and we had discussions about the trial with no mention of a charge for that. I went with her partly because there was no trial cost quoted or discussed, I thought there wasn't one. After many e-mails I found out there was a trial cost, the week of my trial. I had budgeted for the cost she had quoted me so was a bit frustrated about this surprise cost. I suggest including the trial cost WITH the rest of the price quotes.

Also, there was some confusion with the make-up. I planned my wedding from cross-country and had to book some vendors based just on their reviews. I liked Mandi's portfolio and reviews so I went with her without meeting her which was fine. First, she was going to do my make-up which was expected considering I only saw her portfolio. Then, she changed the make-up artist to a co-worker. I was concerned because I hadn't seen this person's portfolio or read reviews, etc. Mandi told me that it was the person who trained her and that she was better at make-up anyway. Okay. Then, the make-up artist changed again. Okay. Then, the week of the wedding one of my bridesmaids decided she didn't want to get make-up done and Mandi said that she only has the make-up artist come when there are 3 people getting it done, which wasn't stated in the contract. I would have been fine with that if Mandi hadn't told me that the first make-up artist who trained her was so much better. Not only that but Mandi wrote to me saying having only 2 girls get their make-up done wasn't going to be worth the make-up artists' time but that Mandi wouldn't have time to do 5 girls' hair and 2 girls' make-up. She asked me for a solution. Really?? If you admit you have no time to do all the work and you have a make-up artist already set up, it's pretty clear that you would have to enlist the make-up artists' help. So, that got worked out. But, the day of the wedding I feel she pressured a third girl to get her make-up done to get more money.

Other little organizational problems happened as well. Just things like I had to repeat information I had already told her several times like the day of the wedding, the number of girls getting work done, the address of where to go. That could be avoided by simply creating a spreadsheet on each client with all the necessary info. Having the contract sent to me was also unorganized. There were several e-mails where she said her printer broke and couldn't send it. Send one electronically or print it at Kinko's, that's an easy solution to fix. That's why I reported two and a half stars on professionalism. The outcome was great, just be prepared for hiccups like that to occur.

I had Amanda and Tamara as my hair and makeup artists. To be honest, all of my first choices were already booked so I was scrambling to find someone to do both on site not too far from my wedding.

I loved Tamara and my makeup. At the trial, she used some colors that I didn't like so I emailed her and asked her to use more neutral tones and she was very willing to change and on the day of my wedding she did an amazing job. She gave me the lip gloss she used so I could reapply throughout the night. She also did my sisters and my mothers makeup and they loved it and they don't like to wear makeup!

My hair trial did not go so well. I did not like how the curls turned out and she was very rushed in doing it. I felt she was not good at listening to what I was looking for and making sure I was happy with it. She actually rushed off to work and left me in her apartment with the makeup person which I don't mind but I wish she had spent a little more time on my hair trial so I could be satisfied with the end product. The day of the wedding, she kept reassuring me that everything would turn out fine and it actually did not turn out too far from what I was looking for. Although, the curls started to fall out in the middle of the reception and that included the curls in the hair extensions which should have stayed all night. Overall, I did like my hair for the wedding but I just felt that it was too much work to keep emailing and make sure she understood what I was looking for and felt like I had to push using extensions so I could get the length I wanted. If you use this vendor, make sure you explain very clearly what you are looking for and she takes the time at the trial to make sure you are happy.
