Booking Season 2020

Your work is beautiful but my friends, boyfriend’s sister offered to do my makeup.

Nine…..That’s how many panicked inquiries I received in 2019, five is the total number of weddings I was able to help last minute.

I get it, weddings are an investment every time you turn around your spending money on one thing or another. I have blogged about this before and I’m blogging about it again because I am still getting inquiries about brides on the fence between booking hair and makeup with me, or DIY (boyfriends, sister’s cousin.)

We all have those friends who do gorgeous makeup on themselves, their skin is beautiful, they know how to wing their liner, it seems like a no brainer to give them a shot. Just because someone can slay their own makeup does not mean they can slay someone else’s. Not everyone can rock that fierce wing, nor should they try on your wedding day.

A professional artist will carry a kit full of makeup that will match any skin tone, a friend will will not.

A professional artist will be educated on professional lighting, working with a professional photographer, know the amount of makeup necessary to show up against a professional flash, a friend (likely) will not.

A professional will have impeccable sanitation practice, have timing down to an art, keep everyone on track and on time.

I always rank hair and makeup at the top of your vendor list, just as important as your photographer and your wedding coordinator. We set the tone for your day, we keep you on time, stress free, your making a huge investment in professional photos, leave it to the professionals to give you hair and makeup service of the highest quality and ensure that it stays till the very last dance.

I would recommend Michelle to anyone and everyone! Working with her was an absolute breeze! She did myself, my maid of honor, and my two bridesmaids, and it was like clockwork! We even had some extra time to just relax before heading to the venue, which was incredible. My wedding party and my hair and makeup looked amazing all night (even with humidity), and it looked exactly how I wanted! Book her! You will not regret it! ~ Kelly

I can’t say enough good things about Michelle, she was so easy to work with and all the girls looked and felt amazing on the day. Michelle came recommended from a friend who had used Michelle for her wedding and I could not be more happy. Our wedding was on Orcas Island and coordinating travel logistics was not an issue at all, which made me so pleased! Thanks again Michelle!! You’re the best!!~ Kylei
Wow!! Michelle is amazing! She took the few pictures I sent her and created the exact wedding look I had dreamed about! I have never looked so flawless or felt so beautiful! Michelle was so sweet and easy to talk to. All of my bridesmaids absolutely loved her! She and her assistant arrived to the venue early and managed to do hair and makeup for 10 people and stay on schedule! Michelle was a joy to work with! I couldn’t recommend her enough!!! ~Lauren
