Wendy was absolutely incredible to work with. She not only made me feel beautiful on wedding day but kept me cool and calm the whole time. In the months leading up to my wedding she was so helpful, she even did a second trial for free because I was so indecisive. I cant say enough great things about her. Having Wendy do my makeup was one of the best decision I made and I would recommend her 100 times over to anyone looking for makeup artist, because she truly is an artist. By the end of the entire experience I not only consider her a professional I worked with but a real friend.

I hired Wendy to do my makeup for my wedding on October 6, 2013, and I'm so happy I did. I first heard of Visage Joli after checking out an awesome You Swoop deal earlier this year. In all honesty, I would have paid full price and more for her makeup services. She is a ROCKSTAR. She has a ton of talent, she is creative, organized, and so very patient. She made me look and feel beautiful. Wendy has over 20 years of makeup experience, and her work is showcased on news anchors at a Chicago TV station- how awesome is that!

I wanted a natural look that would compliment my brown hair and brown eyes, and she knew exactly how to bring forth that natural beauty. Since she used an airbrush applicator, my makeup lasted all day (despite sweat and tears!). Wendy did my sister's makeup as well, and she looked absolutely gorgeous. I had two trials with her, since I'm so picky, but she was so professional the whole time. She really listened to what I wanted. On the day of my wedding, she brought her notes and my comments and executed my look exactly how I wanted it.

Thank you again, Wendy!

Should have done this a while ago! Wendy and Renee did an absolutely lovely job on my makeup and hair for my wedding day. They were able to work in a trial for me at a time that was convenient even though it was peak wedding season. On the day of, they were completely prompt and professional. Renee dealt super nicely when I started freaking out that my hair was to one side (as we'd agreed and I wanted) and calmed me down. Wendy adapted my makeup from the trial as I requested and the result was even better than the trial or than i could have expected. She was a completely calm and calming presence throughout the time and wasnt fussed when I needed to get dressed halfway through her finishing my mom's makeup. Overall, highly recommend.

I was referred to Wendy by one of my bridesmaids who had used her services for her wedding several years ago. She is a true artist and can be a little intense, but she knows what she's doing and does an incredible job! She was very open to listening to what I wanted and then making recommendations based on her observations and experience, which was very helpful to me since I don't wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis and had never had my makeup professionally done before. It was important to me that I still looked like me for my wedding (just a prettier version!). I was blown away with the end result. She has amazing attention to detail and really takes her time to make sure everything looks perfect. However, since she is so thorough, she can get a little off schedule and tends to run a little longer than her time estimates. This also happened when my bridesmaid used her services for her wedding. Don't get me wrong, the end result is well worth it! Her work is amazing and I would absolutely recommend her! But I would recommend budgeting some extra time to make sure that you don't fall behind in your schedule and get stressed. She did makeup for myself and my three bridesmaids. It took about an hour per bridesmaid, about an hour and a half for me. I did do a trial appointment with her prior to the wedding day which was very helpful. I did not use hair services from Visage Joli, only makeup.

I was so bless to have Wendy and her staff do the hair and makeup for my Wedding at the Omni Hotel in Chicago. They were incredibly professional, had great attitudes, and were able to make not only me, but my mother and bridesmaids look flawless. I couldn't have asked for a better pair! The atmosphere in the room while we were getting our hair and makeup done was enjoyable and entertaining - I almost forgot about the wedding nerves! I am hoping to work with Wendy again for future events! If you are looking for a great group of people to have make your special day special, I'd highly recommend them.

Wendy is phenomenal--friendly and professional. She did the makeup for my wedding in August. Most importantly, she showed up. She showed up on time. She worked quickly. And she did a great job. My hairstylist also happens to be a makeup artist, and I overheard her telling her assistant how fantastic Wendy is--she said she could learn a thing or two from her. She did very natural makeup that showed up in photographs without looking garish in person. Our makeup lasted (in some cases) from 7am to 11pm. My bridal party was complicated--we had two dark skinned black women, two medium skinned black women, a light skinned black woman, a Latina, and a South Asian and Wendy matched each of us flawlessly. I still email her to ask what products she used.

Wendy and Jennifer did an absolutely fabulous job on for my makeup and hair on my wedding day. They were able to transform me into a traditional Indian bride for the wedding, and then transition me into Bollywood glamour for the reception. These were both the looks I had hoped for on my wedding day. Wendy is very knowledgeable about the makeup looks for Indian brides and she did alot of research on the look I was trying to achieve. She also kept in contact with me about new methods for makeup application which was very helpful and reassuring to me as a nervous bride. Jennifer worked on my hair and she nailed both my looks for the wedding and reception as well. Both Jennifer and Wendy kept be calm and helped me complete getting dressed for the big day. I could not have been happier with their work on me!

Visage Joli and Wendy were absolutely AMAZING!! Myself, my Matron of Honor, my sister-in-law, both mothers, and my two sisters all had our makeup done by Wendy. My mother and sisters were a bit hesitant to get their makeup done professionally as none of them wear makeup on a normal basis. Wendy was so wonderful with them! She made them feel comfortable, explained exactly what she was planning on doing, listened to their feedback, and was overall very calming for them. The end result was FABULOUS!! Now, it being my own wedding day, I know Wendy made me look absolutely beautiful, but I cannot say enough about how STUNNING my mother looked!! She was flawless!! Wendy, and Visage Joli, are a joy to work with! I would recommend them to everyone I know that needs beautiful professional makeup done for any occasion! One other thing I loved about Visage Joli was that they came to us, so it eliminated all the stress of traveling to and from the salon. We were able to drink champagne, listen to music, and have a wonderful fun wedding morning! I absolutely love Wendy and Visage Joli!!!!

I have so many wonderful things to say about Wendy! She’s a pleasure to work with, extremely talented, and just an all around good person. You need to find the best in the industry to do your makeup for your wedding and Wendy is the BEST! She gave me some beauty tips and advised me on what shades would look good based on the look I wanted and with my skin tone not just for my wedding but also for other fun nights out. I had 2 flower girls and 2 young junior bridesmaids who just needed light lip gloss and blush and she did their makeup complimentary. I wanted the little girls to feel special and have makeup done too and all other people I talked to would do only do 1 flower girl complimentary and would have charged a lot for the other little ones. I would have gone with Wendy if she charged for all of the little girls or not but it’s important to mention she’s understanding and does not try to take advantage of you. She made everyone look absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend her!!!

Wendy & Jean were absolutely amazing. They spent the day and evening with us so that we could look perfect all the time ! My family loved them especially the Moms, who looked & felt beautiful.
Our makeup and hair lasted perfectly through tears, outdoor photos and dancing. I have been airbrushed before but not so perfectly as Wendy's work. It looked amazing & felt like nothing was on my skin. Hiring Visage Joli was one of the best decisions that I made for my wedding !

I was very pleased that Wendy could fit me in to do both my engagement photo shoot as well as my wedding day. I was also pleased with how my makeup looked - I went for a very natural look since I do not normally wear makeup. However, I was very disappointed with the some of Wendy's interactions with my family. For example, Wendy told my mother that she really should get her makeup done after my mother repeatedly said she would much rather prefer (and would feel more comfortable) applying her own makeup. Since I wanted everyone to be happy and relaxed on my wedding day (including all of my family), I wish this wouldn't have been the case. On the other hand, Renee who did all of our hair was absolutely wonderful. She listened to everyone's feedback about what hairstyle they would feel most comfortable wearing and we were all happy with the outcome.

Wendy is very experienced. I felt comfortable giving her the lead to figure out what make up works best for me. She did a wonderful job. For the exception of my lipstick, I never had to reapply. It was a hot day but my make up didn't budge, yet I didn't feel it on my face.

Wendy was amazing! She was the first vendor to respond back to my inquiry emails, and she was very flexible when I asked if we could change the time/location. The final product was more lovely than I could have expected...I didn't think I could look like that :) The make-up lasted all night (from 3:30 PM to 2:00 AM), even the lipstick, with no need to reapply. She was very personable and welcoming. Her prices were very resonable compared to other vendors in the area, especially for the service and quality I received.

Wendy takes her job very seriously which may seem a little bold to some brides but trust her. You are in very good hands. I still looked like myself which was very important to me on my wedding day. Who wants pictures of a person you don't recognize? Her hairstylist Renee was just as wonderful. Book her and you won't regret it.

Visage Joli was absolutely wonderful on my wedding day. My bridesmaids and I looked fabulous and my mom/groom's mom's hair and makeup looked great - not too overdone but just enough to give them something extra.
I would highly suggest using Visage Joli for your hair and makeup. I loved how they came to me and scheduled all the hair/makeup times so I didn't have to do anything.
Wendy and Ginger were also very open to any changes or suggestions me or my bridesmaids had. A month before my wedding I had a hair and makeup trial with Wendy and Ginger and I knew exactly what to expect on my wedding day. Plus my hair and makeup from the trial stayed perfect through 8 hours of work plus walking my dog in the snow!
I received so many compliments on my wedding day/night about how great I looked! I would not have been as relaxed as I was had Wendy and Ginger not taken care of me so well.

Visage Joli is amazing. Not only does Wendy have an amazing background, what really sets her apart is her artistic talent. Wendy uses your face like a canvas and accentuates all your best features. Having Asian eyes, no one could ever correctly put eyeshadow on. Wendy is a true artist and was able to create such depth to my eyes! She uses airbrush makeup that makes your face look flawless! Her makeup is so beautifully put on, and it stays on through anything! From tears shed walking down the aisle, to sweating on the dance floor, at the end of the night (and the next day) - your makeup looks flawless, perfect and natural.

Besides her amazing talents and skills as an artist, she is the most caring person. She takes her time and wants only the best for you. She will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. She will meet you on her off days, just to help you find the perfect shade of red. She truly is amazing and her heart that is so loving is what makes her service the best. She cares more about giving to you and making your day special no matter it means for her. You can not and will not find anyone better than Wendy.

Wendy and Renee provided hair and make up services for myself, my 5 bridesmaids and my mother. They both traveled to my home which made it very convenient and were both on time. It was a very hectic day but they made sure we all got the attention we deserved and it was stress free. They both listened to us and made suggestions which were perfect! I thought I wanted to wear my hair down, Renee suggested I wear it up to show off my long neck and accentuate my veil. She was right on!!!!! Same with my bridesmaids, they all looked incredible. I can't stop raving on how great my make up looked. I don't think I ever looked this good. It lasted all night with no touch ups and still looked perfect even after all the dancing I did. Same with all my bridesmaids, their make up looked fabulous!!!! Even my mom looked great. She is 73 years old and looked beautiful, not too "made up" I wish we all could look this good all the time!!!!!

Working with Wendy & Renee from Visage Joli was wonderful! As a makeup newbie, I was nervous about looking too made up (or not like myself) on my Big Day. Wendy was professional, knowledgeable and patient—creating a look that was not only beautiful, but one that I was comfortable with. Both ladies were very accessible, answering my questions and offering suggestions. Renee maintained my ‘do prior to the wedding, doing trims, color and brow touch-ups.

On the day of the wedding, they came to my hotel room, saving me time and stress of running around town. Renee beautifully styled one of my bridesmaids, and when another girl needed a few curls refreshed, she was happy to oblige. Wendy and Renee’s calming presence on the morning of my wedding helped me to stay relaxed and stress-free—Renee ordered tea for me and Wendy even made sure I ate lunch! They were both such a big part of my day, helping me to start off my wedding day in the best possible way. I felt beautiful that day, receiving compliments on my hair and make-up, ranging from “movie star” to “goddess.” Thank you, ladies!

I just got married last month and I don't know where to begin. Wendy is incredible! She makes you feel so comfortable on your big day. She is a true professinal but also so easy going and fun.

I had never been airbrushed before and was hesitant. The greatest invention ever and Wendy is an artist with the machine. My make-up not only stayed on all-night but was flawless until I washed it off. Wendy really listened to what I wanted and was so flexible but also offered several ideas to me with my eyes that I didn't think I could pull of....thanks to hear I did and looked amazing. I will forever have beautiful wedding pictures because of her.
I will recommend Wendy to all my friends. You will not be disapointed...in fact you will be amazed and how wonderful you will look!

Visage Joli offered a high quality make-up service. Wendy was professional, friendly, and flexible. I looked outstanding on my wedding day. I look flawless in every photograph from before the ceremony to the last minutes of the reception. I never had to touch up or worry that I needed to. I have recommended Visage Joli to every bride I have met since my wedding day. Related, she also did make up for one of my guests. My guest also looked beautiful for the entire evening. Visage Joli really can be for any occasion, and especially a vendor you will be happy you chose on your wedding day! Truly a brides best friend!

I absolutely love Visage Joli and could not have asked for a better make-up team for my wedding! As the bride, I made the horrible mistake of getting a facial a month before the big day and had an allergic reaction/ burn on my cheek. I was absolutely mortified that my wedding pictures would turn out to be a disaster. Wendy was so compassionate and reassured me that she could cover up the imperfections from the facial. Not only did she do an AMAZING job but it looks like I don't even have a lot of make-up on! All my bridesmaids loved their own make-up and we all highly, highly recommend Visage Joli to all future brides. Not only did Visage Joli do a great job for my wedding, but it was so refreshing to see a team that really cared about me!
