I ran into Betsey through thumbtack as I had put an ad out for a makeup artist in/near Minneapolis who could do a smokey eye for me for my Senior Prom! She quickly contacted me through the website and I hired her on the spot - after reading such great reviews! Those reviews were not mistaken!! I met Betsey at a salon (which she sometimes works out of) and she took great care in making me look fantastic for the dance. I was very impressed with the service and her talent in creating an intricate, specific look. Overall, she did a great job and there is no doubt I will be contacting her again in the future for other events. Not to mention we also had great conversations during our session - we discovered both of our fathers are/were pilots - how cool!

I needed someone to do on-site makeup at my house before 9am engagement pictures - not an easy task to find someone that would work in someone's house AND arrive at 8am! Thankfully I found Betsey Mckenzie of Luminous Beauty LLC - and she was willing to meet my list of needs at a very reasonable price! She did great work and was very friendly! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for on-site makeup artists for photographs, or events!

I had an amazing experience with SM Hair + Makeup. Staff were above and beyond my expectations. Many times when I've had hair or makeup done for events, I'd show a photo, and it would somewhat resembled what I want, but wouldn't be exactly what I want. I had 6 bridesmaids receiving their services, and they nailed everyone's look, exactly how they wanted it. I had two bridesmaids, add on makeup services, because they were so impressed with the work SM provided. They were very quick, efficient, and professional. I would suggest that because they are so good, if you know what you want, you don't need to do a consultation. My only complaint is that they are a little expensive, ($50 Hair + $50 Makeup Consultation/ $300 bridal service+$15 extensions) but TOTALLY worth hiring.

S&M Makeup was fanastic! My bridesmaids and I were all beyond happy with our flawless hair and makeup especially because the makeup/hair withstood a 90 degree summer wedding. They were also so efficient and quick that they finished 30 minutes early which gave us more time to relax before the ceremony. Not to mention they were extremely professional, accommodating, and outgoing. I would highly recommend S&M Makeup!

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!

Sara came to our home to do makeup applications for my two daughters that were going to prom. Not only were her rates within reason, the makeup application was absolutely flawless!! She did an amazing job! Both my daughters were more than excited at the way their makeup was applied and looked stunning!! It was so convenient having Sara come right to the house and I HIGHLY recommend her!!! I will have her back for my next event!

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 had never had my make-up professionally done so I was a bit skeptical thinking that I could just do it myself. Boy was I wrong! Caitlin was super nice and was able to get me exactly what I had hoped for. She helps with different skin types and even uses HD makeup that looks great with professional photos. She also gave us the option to purchase our lip gloss in case we wanted to do some touch-ups. Overall, Caitlin was a great choice for our wedding party!!

I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie for our wedding last weekend. She did my bridal makeup, my mothers as well as my bridesmaids.

I found Jessica on this site (I am a bridesmaid) and suggested her to the bride. The bride decided to go with Jessica for her wedding hair and makeup and 3 of the bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done as well. Jessica did a fantastic job on all of our hair and did our makeup exactly how we wanted. I personally got tons of comments on my hair and my makeup. I truly felt beautiful that day! Thank you for doing a great job!

Jess was amazing for my hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party for my wedding. She listened to what I wanted to have done, and let me choose if I didn't like something and how to change it so that I would. All of the girls loved her makeup style and ability to adapt to everyone all at once! Great service.

Jessica did my hair and makeup for my engagement photos. I don't normally wear a lot of makeup so I'm always nervous to get it done. She did a great job of giving me just enough makeup to look great on film while still looking like myself.

Taylor is not only a talented, professional, and responsive makeup artist, she's SO FUN to have with you on your special day! She listened to everything I wanted, then gave me that and more for my wedding. I wanted to look glam (check) but classic (check) and never regret my makeup look (check). PLUS the makeup stayed in place and was perfect until I took it off after the after party (which was probably around 16 hours of wear). I looked like me, but bridal and flawless through happy tears and hundreds of hugs and lots of champagne. She also did applications for some of my bridesmaids (but I still looked like The Bride, you know?), which turned out equally phenomenal, and they loved her just as much as I did. The experience from the beginning trial to the finished look was worth every penny with Taylor. I recommend her 100%! You will wish you had her eyebrows, but luckily she will give you some of our own with her incredible skills! Thank you Taylor!

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!!

Taylor was the makeup artist at a wedding that I was in this weekend and I could not have been happier with her! She was very respectful and made sure to ask what each person felt comfortable with, while also providing suggestions. Beyond the makeup, she also was great at keeping everyone calm, even in moments of high emotion, by always remaining cheerful and positive. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!! :):)

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!

I will definitely rate Glamour Beauty 5 stars! If I could rate them higher I would! My artists Kazia and Sienna were both accommodating and friendly! You can definitely see they take pride in their work and it is not a "job" to them. I had my trial with Kazia and she applied the false eyelashes, airbrush makeup and I received a touch up kit, best thing ever!! Now I can wear my new favorite lipcolor ALL the time. Kazia made me feel confident and simply like a princess on my wedding day!

I had Leanne and Audrey working my event, They did airbrush makeup and hair! I also got my eyelashes done by Leanne for a special gift thru them! I loved my eyelash extensions and will continue to get eyelashes done with her. Glamour Beauty was awesome to work with and responded to by dozens of questions. They were easy to communicate with and even better at the services they did for me and my girls. Thanks ladies!

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!

My daughter was married at St. Olaf Collage Church and had the venue there as well. Kat was amazing!! She had complete control of everything from beginning to end! As the mother of the bride, I was amazed how smoothly the entire rehearsal and wedding went. Kat was the go to person for everything. She kept things going. The pastor was very late for the rehearsal. Kat took over and didn't waste any time getting everyone started. She stepped in and took care of anything that needed to be done. I would hire her again in a heartbeat and will recommend her to anyone getting married. Her advise up front was invaluable. She saved my daughter so much money with many recommendations and advise. She also did our makeup. She is a professional in all aspects of events. Many wedding attendees asked me who she was and where we found her. They were very impressed with her. My brother-in-law is a pastor and said he wished that all the weddings he sponsored had Kat working at them. He said she really knows what she is doing and what a difference she makes. Thank you so much Kat for all you did to make my daughter's wedding "PERFECT !" You went above and beyond what we expected. OUTSTANDING JOB !!! Cathie Kranz : )

I absolutely LOVE working with Bre. She is by far the most skilled, thorough, and creative makeup artist I've ever had and I've worked with her at least half a dozen times now. After initially meeting her at Mac Cosmetics for a special event a couple years ago, I hired her for everything from transformative Halloween makeup to event and wedding makeup to photoshoot makeup for my activewear company! She recently did makeup for my brother's wedding, including the bride and mother of the groom (and myself), and I think it was my favorite look yet. She is very detailed, professional and pays attention to the littlest of details. Her knowledge of skin is also a huge plus - my complexion has never looked more even! She also chose a lip color that has become my go-to for almost every evening event. She is also one of the kindest people you will ever meet and is very fun to get to know. She's always learning new techniques and investing in her offerings as well. You will be blown away by how amazing she makes you feel!

I am so glad I decided to go with Breanna. She was so amazing. I can go on and on about how great of a job she did. She responded to all my questions very quick and professionally. I decided to hire her because she’s not only a makeup artist but she’s an artist because she’s amazingly experienced with colors. My makeup was perfect. I would definitely hire her again. Thank you so very much.

Jen has done my makeup for me many times. She is very talented and I always looked amazing when she was done. She always takes the time to ask you what you like for colors and how dramatic you like your makeup. As for me, I would simply tell Jen to do what she thought was best for me and my skin tones. Jen is very knowledgeable on what looks best on the different skin tones, eye color and hair color. I can’t say enough about Jen and her how talented she is!!

Angela is extremely professional and super dedicated to her clients. She spent hours on my trial session trying to figure out the best products for me (foundations, contours, eye shadows, etc.) and then another long-session on the day. Everybody in the wedding appreciated the makeup. I went with my hair done, and Angela did some final touch-up on my hair as well. Highly recommended. Make sure you have sufficient time for this professional to work for you! Good make-up takes time to create.
