My niece was going for a natural look for her prom and she was very happy with her makeup. She was beautiful! Her parents were also very happy with her look and Sedacia's service. I was happy that I chose her as the make up artist.

Alicia was a member of my Celebrity Glam Squad in November. She showed up on set completely prepared with a professional makeup light, makeup chair, and makeup for all skin tones. She was so nice and very professional. I quickly realized that she was an extremely skilled artist, so I asked her to do makeup for legendary artists. Her work was flawless!! She took her time and everyone looked amazing! She is now one of the official Celebrity Makeup Artists for the Artist Music Guild of North Carolina. Amazing Artist!!

Ahh!! Where do I begin, Shajarazade is absolutely amazing at what she does. I recently hired her to be my makeup artist for my May wedding. So far we have only done a trial run and I'm already floored. Her technic, knowledge, and passion are just a few reasons why I have chosen her to do my makeup for my special day! Ladies, if you are looking for a fun makeup artist who knows how to crack some jokes to kill the nerves while doing an above and beyond job, this is your girl! I specifically was looking for a unique, contouring, bridal glow. She studied the pictures I sent her and nailed it her very first application! I'm so happy I've found someone who meets my high standards of makeup artistry and is someone I can trust!! I can't wait to see what she does for the bridal shoot and the wedding!!!!!!

She was very down to earth when doing my make up while also staying professional. It was my first time ever getting my make up done and she made me feel very comfortable and there was not a moment where anything felt uncomfortable for me. As soon as I showed up, she was ready to do my makeup and the environment in which she did my makeup was very clean and relaxing.

Erin is a great makeup artist who takes her job very seriously! From the trial, to my bridal portraits, to the wedding day itself, she was always working to tweak my look to make it absolutely perfect. She came to us on the wedding day and did the make up of the whole bridal party and both mothers. Everyone was happy with the result and had a great time!

It was such a pleasure to work with Vita. It was my first time getting my makeup done by a makeup artist and I would recommend it for anyone who has a special event coming up. For my prom I looked and felt so great. It didn't take long at all and it was a great experience. Vita did an awesome job, I definitely felt like a princess!

Alice was the makeup artist for myself and and group of friends for NYE. She was very professional and courteous! She showed up early to set up to ensure she could take time to do everyone’s face exactly how they wanted it! She was very knowledgeable about what products to use for each skin type and shade. She had a variation of deep to fair tones, dry to oily skin types and did an amazing job on all of us! I got so many compliments on my makeup for the night! I can’t wait to book her for my next event!

I always have the best experience with Taylor. She not only makes me look beautiful she makes sure I feel beautiful. She has earned my trust because of how much knowledge and experience she has. She always explains to me WHAT she is doing WHY she is doing it and then HOW to do it. I always feel confident and refreshed leaving her chair. I have referred many of my clients to her all ages and ethnicities and she has made them all feel confident and look great. Taylor you rock girl!! We definitely need more genuine caring make up artist like yourself around. Shauna Jones Redken Color Certified Redken Design Certified Master stylist

Terri is an amazing makeup artist, she and her assistant were prompt and fast. I hired her for my cousins' entire bridal party, the bride and 2 other family members including myself. She knows how to make you look like the best you, not a made up someone else. My mom hates makeup but she loved the natural look that Terri have her. I prefer bolder and contouring and for each makeup preference Terri was able to satisfy the bridesmaid. Her personality is funny, calming and easy going which is very helpful during hectic event days. I use many makeup artists while traveling and will use her again and again.

I was searching for a makeup artist for my wedding when I came across Nicole Padgett MUA on her professional Facebook page. I viewed some of her work and even searched for her business Instagram account. She had such an amazing portfolio I HAD to book her! She has already had so much experience with weddings that I knew I could fully trust her for my own. She was so outgoing and brought such a positive atmosphere to my "getting ready" phase at my wedding. ALL my bridesmaids were absolutely gorgeous as she put just as much time into their makeup as my own. They all loved her and even guests commented on our amazing makeovers! I would refer Nicole to ANYONE and EVERYONE!
