Such a fun time working with Melissa and her wonderful wedding party.
Such a fun time doing wedding makeup, working with Melissa and her wonderful wedding party. Cati and I created very individual looks for each of her wedding party, and for the bride herself, a bride who wasn’t scared to wear red lipstick for that true vintage look. Her looks is one of my all time favs.
“She made me look beautiful and worked her magic on my mother and my bridesmaids.”
I met Lucy through a mutual friend and loved getting to know her over dinner one night last winter. When I found out she was a wedding makeup artist I confirmed her on the spot for my wedding. One year later, she made me look beautiful and worked her magic on my mother and my bridesmaids. When you plan a wedding, as someone reading this review might already be aware, it’s best to work with people who are professional and kind, and who will put you at ease as you work your way through the never-ending checklist. Lucy is all of these things, and my trust in her was absolute (so much so that my trial was mere days before “the big day”). I recommend her whole-heartedly to anyone seeking a makeup artist for any special occasion.
She was super calm and uber professional. I felt like I was in such safe hands.
Lucy did mine and my Mom’s wedding makeup and she was amazing.
I’ve generally had nightmare experiences getting my make-up professionally done in the past. I’ve felt they never listen to me when I say I want to look natural, not overdone and I end up looking like a drag queen! Not with Lucy. I had never had my make-up airbrushed on before, which was revolutionary. It gave just a very light coverage of foundation – just enough to even out and brighten my complexion but not so much that the real me didn’t show through. Equally, my eye make-up was just enough to complement my complexion and define my eyes without being too much. Lucy really listened to me and recommended eyeshadow shades that suited me perfectly but were still within my comfort zone.
And last, but not least, my hair: It was fun in our trial session to google lots of images of possible styles and get her advice on which would suit me. On the day I was really pleased with how it all came together – she nailed it straight away the hairstyle was exactly how I wanted it.
Lucy was a joy to have there on my wedding day while I was getting ready. She was super calm and uber professional. I felt like I was in such safe hands. Even when my bridesmaids were useless at helping me get into my dress, Lucy came to the rescue! My Mom, who is a tough critic, also felt really confident and comfortable with the way Lucy did her hair and make-up.
I’d recommend her in a heartbeat!
