This was BY FAR the most beautiful I have ever felt. Betsy is an absolute doll and such a incredibly wonderful person to work with. I have no clue how she does the work she does, but the results are beyond stunning. I've always been a huge tomboy but had a gala coming up with a group of friends that was 'Old Hollywood' themed. She made me look STUNNING and I felt so amazing all night long. I'm also getting married later this year and am already planning 100% for her to be my 'makeup artist' through the entire process. Thank you so much, Betsy!!!! You know exactly how to create beauty :)

SM Makeup was fantastic! Chelsy was the lead stylist for our day and Sarah was the lead makeup artist. They were absolutely wonderful. They listened to what each person wanted ranging from the bride to bridesmaids to moms and grandmas. Each lady looked stunning. The team was professional, accommodating, and fun. SM Makeup was among the best priced in the Minneapolis are too. I highly recommend to any bride!

Caitlin is extremely professional and kind-hearted, and has a way to make people feel at ease. She started by showing me her portfolio of people whose makeup she has done, and then asked a few questions as to what I was really looking for, and we looked at pictures and talked until we had come to an agreement! She let me give feedback and look at myself throughout the process to make sure we were on the same page. She did my makeup and my hair. Overall it was a great experience and I was gorgeous afterwards!!

I was first intrigued by Melissa because of her all-inclusive pricing for bridal and bridesmaid makeup, but if I knew then how great she would be to work with, I wouldn't have even looked at hiring anyone else. She is prompt, reliable, professional, and above all, good at what she does. The initial consultation was great too, and helped us come up with a "look" together before the big day. She was so great to work with, and though it's unnerving to truly trust someone with the biggest day of your life, she really delivered. She was funny, played music while we got ready, and helped put us all at ease and added to the fun of getting ready on my wedding day. We had a huge bridal and wedding party, so she brought an assistant to cut down on the stress and timing pressure, which I really appreciated too. I loved my wedding makeup, and my husband could not stop telling me how beautiful I was on our wedding day! Melissa was wonderful, fun, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced and reliable makeup artist for their wedding day.

Nicole did such a great job doing makeup on 3 actors that were shooting for my music video. She was there right on time, was extremely kind, & was very responsive to text messages. Mind you, I had to find a makeup artist in 4 days. She made my group of 3 girls look flawless and it was great to see my vision come alive! Thank you Nicole!

Taylor did the makeup for my wedding day and is such a talented makeup artist!!! We did a trial a few weeks before and made a few changes for the exact look I was hoping for on my wedding day. My skin looked great which is a miracle because my skin is FAR from perfect! I honestly would not have felt as awesome as I did that day if it wasn't for Taylor doing my makeup. To top it off, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I highly recommend her for your wedding day or big event!!

I hired Lisa to do my makeup for my wedding this past October. She was fantastic! From our first conversation, she was incredibly friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Lisa made it a priority to understand the style of my wedding and bridal look, and was very helpful in providing makeup ideas that would work for me. She was on-time and ready to go for both my trial run and wedding day. She also did a great job helping my sister and MOH with her makeup. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking for a makeup artist! I cannot say enough about her talent and the quality of her work!

I had hired Audrey and her team to hair and makeup on me and my 6 bridesmaids. They were very sweet group of girls and arrived in Rochester 15 min early to set up! Audrey and Mena (other makeup artist) literally bring EVERYTHING with them from makeup chairs to lighting and electric equipment. The whole booking process was very quick and easy. Do not pass up these girls!
