I used Your Makeup Expert for my engagement photos, engagement party, bridals and wedding and all I can say is that I was thrilled to have selected them! I was thoroughly satisfied! I looked beautiful at each occasion! Dorothy did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos while Elise did my hair and makeup for the rest of the occasions and for my wedding day. Both Dorothy and Elise are wonderful friendly people to work with and I didn't have to worry about how I would look when in their hands! I was so excited to have everyone see me! They truly listen to how you want to look rather than take matters in their own hands, which I appreciate. They ended up doing my mom and sisters' hair and makeup on the wedding day and they were satisfied. One great thing is that they are not only on time but usually arrive a bit earlier than they say - which is such a great trait! Who wouldn't want that! If I had to to it all over again, I'd pick Your Makeup Expert again!

Dorothy and Elise did my bridal hair and make up and also hair and make up for my mom and bridesmaids. They did an amazing job and it lasted throughout the entire wedding and looked just as good 8 hours later as when it was first applied. Their make up techniques leave you looking flawless but still the same. It is not a ton of heavy make up that makes you look like someone else. I would highly recommend your make up expert to any one getting married and wanting to look absolutley perfect on their big day!

We used Dorothy's hair/makeup services for both my bridal portraits and the wedding day. Dorothy is great! She really loves what she does and it shows with her great attitude.
I'll start with my bridals...we showed up at her studio which is delightfully decorated and quaint. I was hesitant but she convinced me that airbrush makeup would look best for pictures. She was right...my skin looked flawless! I have pretty clear skin already, but it was just beautiful for the portraits. She did my hair exactly how I asked and it stayed intact from 9am-9pm- ALL DAY! I knew that day that we had made the right decision by hiring Dorothy for hair & makeup...I felt gorgeous.
I offered my (9) bridesmaids and the in-laws the opportunity to hire Dorothy for their hair or makeup (or both) since she was already going to be there on the wedding day for my mother and me. We had about 10 girls and mothers use her and Elise for hair and makeup services that day. It was a blast! We all hung out in my mother-in-law's hotel suite with mimosas all day while everyone got beautified! A few of the girls weren't 100% satisfied with their hair because they felt she didn't use enough bobby pins or that their curls weren't "Kardashian" enough. My hair (curls) became flat right after the ceremony which wasn't good, but I'm not sure if that was due to the Houston humidity or not enough hair spray. Regardless, everyone looked perfect and I felt like a glamorous rock star! That's how a bride should feel on her big day!
I definitely think makeup is their strong suit, but I'd recommend them to any bride-to-be and her maids anytime. Plus, Dorothy was a TV star ;)

This person called me on the day of my bridals at 730am and was supposed to be there at 830am to say they could not make it. They did not have a backup in place. They were very unprofessional. They asked me to reschedule my bridals. I was very disappointed.

Your Makeup Expert responded with the following comments:

This was an isolated incident with extenuating circumstances and every attempt was taken to provide an artist in the timeline requested. We offered an artist at later time that day but it was declined. Our apologies went out to the bride and MOB and steps were taken to provide an artist. This was an emergency with unavoidable circumstance. We have a proven track record of excellence, and very happy YME brides.

Although we were'nt very prompt on everything our make-up expert team was. They were definately there to satisfy our every desire on how much or how little make-up everyone wanted. Their prices were great and their Make-Up Artistic abilities exceded our expectations. The payment plan was easy, especially with the wedding date being so close.They were at our wedding venue on time and ready to get started. They remained at the venue until everyone was satisfied and ready to walk down the isle. They came with a sense of humor and very sweet to our whole bridal party. Our make-up expert team made our day getting all pretty for this beautiful and cherished event even more special than we could have imagined. We used their services for my daughters wedding three years ago and now in June, 2011 as a gift to my son and his now wife. She was very pleased and so excited. There were no disappointments, only satisfaction. We all just love the ladies at Your Make-Up Expert.

I was quite anxious about how I would look on my wedding day; I have a significant amount of melasma and discoloration and acne scarring on my face. Elise was amazing- very gentle, answered all my questions and really put my mind at ease. She helped me with ideas and made changes last minute. I could not believe the final outcome. I looked flawless and I NEVER thought I would look like that! I would definitely us my make up expert again and highly recommend their services.

OMG!!! Dorothy did an outstanding job on the day of my wedding! Wow is all I can say, she transformed me from girl next door to Sexy Bride in a flash!! She also did my mom and sister's makeup and as she was transforming my sister I couldn't stop looking at her wonderful work. I just couldn't stop staring at my sister and how gorgeous she looked! Everyone made a comment about how beautiful my hair and makeup looked, some people actually told me that they couldn't stop staring at my face and one guest even said to my husband "don't you wish she looked like this every day" lol! My photographer took first look pics and so I snuck up on my husband at the venue and he turned and looked and me and kept saying how beautiful I looked! Even later that night as we headed to Galveston he continued saying the same thing and he said that my makeup artist did a fantastic job! Thank you so much Dorothy, I can't wait to have another excuse to use you!!

Dorothy was great!! Very professional, punctual and flexible. I went to her studio for my trial and was amazed at how quickly she was able to get my long, thick hair into a perfect up-do. The airbrushed makeup was also a great idea for pictures and made it long-lasting.
She came to me for the bridal portraits and the wedding day, which was definitely worth it. On the day of my wedding, she also did my daughter's hair into an adorable up-do with curly ringlets on each side, just like she requested. Dorothy even came up with the idea of putting some small flowers in our hair to match the dresses. Everyone complimented us on the hair and my daughter just beamed!!

I will never be in or go to a wedding without the help of these girls. I had originally not planned on having airbrushed makeup at all. After talking to Dorothy, I changed my mind. After my trial, I was in love. Elise was so go to my maids and my daughter. It was like she was a guest at the wedding.

Dorothy did my make-up for both my bridal portrait and the wedding day. I paid to have the trial done before hand. She has a very cute little studio next to her house, but it isn't very close to Houston. I paid to have her come to my house to do hair and make-up on both the portrait day and wedding day, and it was well worth the extra $65 travelling fee each time.

Dorothy did a great job. I took her pictures of my dress so she could get an idea for my style. She was very willing to tweak my hair when the updo needed to be just a little higher. And I love the airbrush make-up. It really does hide all of your flaws, and I never got shiney on my wedding day. When my bridal portraits turned out poorly (see review on photographer), I showed her the pictures and she modified the make-up a bit after looking at how it photographs. For the wedding day she brought an assistant, and the assistant did an excellent job on my sister and my mom's make-up. All of us looked very natural. I would highly recommend Your Make-up Expert to anyone in the Houston area.

Dorothy, the lady who owns this business is wonderful. She was able to take a few pictures that I brought to her during my consultation, and she was able to create the look I wanted the first trial. It was gorgeous, and she was very flexible as far as time goes. She had more options available than other vendors, like getting airbrush or traditional makeup or stage makeup. She created the look I wanted and the look my bridesmaids and mother wanted and was done in no time. Loved her.
