"I've washed my face after almost every make up job I've ever had, until Lauren. She did such a beautiful job for my engagement party that I hired her for my entire wedding week. I am very particular about a natural neutral look - the opposite of "overdone". For each night she provided a slightly different look while staying consistent with my requests for a natural, neutral look with a sun kissed glow, long lashes and a pale lip. Her strengths are many, but maybe her most impressive is that she can translate her talents into ANY client's vision, no matter how dramatic or how natural.Lauren M.
"Lauren was my go to girl for anything and everything wedding related. She did my make up for my engagement pictures, bridal portraits and took care of all the women in my family for the big day! Everyone walked away loving their make up... So much that my grandmother didn't want to take hers off at the end of the night! Lauren is truly an artist. She has an eye for what will look good on each individual person and makes you feel truly beautiful. I couldn't have imagined my make up being any better than it was on my wedding day. Love her and so thankful for all she did to help me out for my wedding!ALLYE A.
"I can absolutely say that Lauren transformed me into a beautiful bride. Knowing Lauren's history and passion for makeup and design, I decided against a trial run, and I let her use my face as a blank canvas on my wedding day. I did not question one thing while in that makeup chair and when I looked in the mirror at the end, I was amazed. It was perfect. She helped to make the day stress free and so much fun!ANNIE P.
