I had a difficult time working with Cory Bryant from Makeup By Cory for my wedding and engagement photo shoot. My wedding was in May 2013. The problems with Cory are below: 1) Bad attitude 2) Unreliable with schedule 3) Asked for tips repetitively 4) Not good with Asian eye makeup, does better job with Caucasian On the day of the wedding, Cory and her team of 3 assistants showed up 15 minutes late. Immediately, Cory announced that they had to hurry because she had another wedding to rush to after this one. She was clearly stressed and repeated that whenever I or a bridesmaid made a request. I did not feel that my wedding was a priority at all. My biggest makeup concern was no panda eyes look. Im Asian, so most heavy eye shadows make me look like I got punched in the eye two dark puffy circles that make my eyes look smaller, the panda eyes look! Not attractive at all! I requested lighter colors that would make my eyes look brighter and bigger. Corys immediate reply was I cant make your eyes look any bigger than they are. She started layering on darker eye shadows that I did not like. Meanwhile, my sister was getting her eye shadows done by an assistant. When my mother pointed out that we would like my eye makeup to look more similar to my sisters, Cory said she was just going to let her assistant do my eyes. I could tell her pride was hurt, and the rest of the appointment felt adversary. I wish Cory would have listened instead of being in such a big hurry to get to the next wedding.Nov 13, 2013
Cory was absolutely amazing! She made me look so wonderful and was very easy to work with. She was extremely flexible, I kept having to move my time and location for my appointment and she didn't have any problems at all. I highly recommend her!Apr 23, 2013Verified
