I used Touch of Blush Beauty for the makeup for my son's wedding. It was the first time I ever had someone else do my makeup. I did not know what to expect. I was THRILLED with the results. Brittany did a fantastic job!! I had SO many compliments. (I was the mother of the groom.) She responded almost immediately to my online questions before hand. She arrived promptly. (I LOVED that she came to my house.) She had everything she needed. She determined exactly what makeup to apply. She was very friendly and professional and made me feel comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Wish she could do my makeup ever day for me! Thank you, Brittany!!

I would highly recommend Brittany Morrison to any bride-to-be! Brittany was a pleasure to work with and was an utmost professional. She eased my mind about my makeup for the wedding day during the trial. I expressed my concerns and desires and she listened and executed it beautifully. Brittany took attention to every detail and took the time to make me look perfect. I not only looked beautiful on my wedding day, but I also felt beautiful too! I received countless compliments on my makeup! Knowing I had Brittany doing my makeup, I knew that my photos would turn out fantastic! And they did! Thanks Brit!

Brittany is amazing at what she does! A true magician with a brush and airbrush too. I have known her online for years and always loved her personality, so when she was down in Dallas doing some work for smashbox right when I was getting ready to do a photoshoot for some business head shots I HAD to have her do my makeup and - I definitely couldn't have done a better job myself. I wish she lived in Texas so I could have her do my makeup all of the time! Thanks Brittany! Wishing you much love and success with your business!!

Emily did an excellent job on my wedding makeup and my bridal party's makeup as well. I had tried out several other makeup artists, and I found that everyone else overdid it, and I looked too made up. I didn't look like myself. When Emily did her trial run, I was more than pleased with the results. The result was not only natural, her makeup made me look better than myself. The result was me enhanced! She made me look flawless, and my wedding pictures are proof of that! My bridesmaids makeup looked just as flawless and beautiful, too! I highly recommend Emily if you need a professional makeup artist for a special occasion like a wedding, homecoming or a prom! She was prompt, professional, and goes above and beyond!

Emily did an amazing job with my bridal makeup, bridesmaids, and mother in law the day of our wedding. At my trial, she took in all of the information she could about our general vibe for the wedding, and it couldn't have gone any better. My makeup was noticeable but not over the top whatsoever. Her prices are more than reasonable compared to what others charge, and she was right on time day of the wedding and completed all of our makeup well before our scheduled end time. I highly recommend Emily!

Erin was absolutely WONDERFUL to work with. She is so friendly, professional and a very skilled makeup artist. Erin also has extremely fair pricing for her work and does not overcharge like some other artists I had searched did. She really listened to me and gave me exactly the look I wanted for my wedding day. The trial day with her was great - we did some trial and error on a few things and she made every change I asked for and was SO willing to work with me and make sure I felt as beautiful as possible for my wedding day. She also did makeup for my bridesmaids and mother in law, and the girls got SO many compliments on how gorgeous their makeup was. For the wedding day, Erin was on time, professional and organized - she was great to work with and really knows how to work well amidst the craziness that can be the morning of your big day. She also has VERY high quality products and used the best of the best on me for my wedding day. My makeup was gorgeous and lasted all day - for an August 27th wedding when it was 90+ degrees (2pm wedding) - my face NEVER came off until I took it off myself at the end of the night! It looked gorgeous for photos and she used all the right products and perfect amounts of everything to ensure my face would be flawless for my pictures with no lighting kickback. I cannot recommend her enough! I am SO glad I trusted her for my wedding day -she helped to make me feel and look my best for the day, which is exactly what I wanted. She is such a sweetheart and wonderful to work with - I really can't say enough good things about her!

Erin was WONDERFUL to work with. She was recommended by a friend when I was trying to find a makeup artist to do my wedding makeup. She did a trial run for my engagement photos and it was great, she came to my house and brought everything and the only thing that I bought additional was my lip color, which she helped to recommend the perfect color. She was very responsive to text messages and was very helpful as we discussed the perfect look. I thought that her prices were very fair and a few of my bridesmaids ended up using her to do their makeup also. My make up was beautiful and lasted 16+ hours through tears and sweat. I higly recommend her and would definately use her again in the future!

Katie was INCREDIBLE in every way!! She did the wedding makeup for myself (the bride), my mom, and my new mother in-law, and it looked STUNNING on all of us!! Katie listened and really took to heart what we each wanted. She personalized the makeup to our vision, skin type -- but she also made great recommendations of the colors / styles / brands that would work the best. The makeup lasted ALL day and night, from 8am to midnight! More than that, though, Katie is just such a nice, thoughtful person. When the salon said they couldn't open earlier than 9am to start the bridesmaids' hair, Katie came out extra early to my mom's house to do her makeup, then drove over to the salon with us. And when I was all chatty and excited and nervous in the morning while my family was running around getting ready, Katie was just shooting the breeze with me, making me laugh and keeping me calm. I appreciated that SO much. She really didn't feel like just a makeup artist, it felt like I was hanging out with an old friend catching up. We all valued her professionalism, talent, and just lovely personality. She helped to make the day perfect! ...and I've never felt more beautiful! If I could give her 10 stars out of 5, I would. Book her now!! You won't regret it!!

I had a pretty specific look in mind for my event, and the final product reflected that very well--Katie was very attentive to detail. She also considered my skin type (combination) before using products on my face. Overall, the application was flawless and long-lasting-- I only had to touch up twice with oil blotting sheets in the entire night! Also, the price is extremely reasonable. She doesn't even charge for false lashes. For $40, and the quality and attentiveness Katie offers, I'd recommend her over the makeup artists in the Ulta/Sephora/MAC stores.

She has done multiple highlight sessions, multiple hairstyles and makeup for date nights for me. All have came out perfect, have been going to her for over a year now and I refuse to go anywhere else. Absolutely amazing in all her work and lovely person. Even the experience in the place was great. Very calm upbeat vibe. Also gave great tips on easy hairstyle and how to do things with my hair and makeup on a regular basis. Also gave me a lesson on some hairstyles that I wanted to learn how to do. She is just an amazing person and stylist.

I needed my make up done for prom but didn't really know what I wanted. Sephora was all booked up. Thankfully i ran into Nicole in the store! Nicole helped me pick what I wanted based on what looks good on me. She didn't cake on my make up which i really liked. She came to my house a couple times to practice so the look would be perfect and exactly what i wanted. The end result was amazing! I looked and felt so beautiful for my first prom!

Rachael's makeup techniques along with the colors she chose created a very natural look but enhanced my features very nicely! I do not normally wear a lot of make up and I have a very active lifestyle but even the very simple techniques of a correct color eyebrow pencil and lip stuff that fixes your chapped lips I had zero knowledge about but when she showed me I felt so much more attractive and she showed me how to do it on my own. Rachael is amazing! She listens to you and is patient even if you're not sure exactly what you want.

Danina did my makeup for my wedding day- she did a daytime wedding ceremony look in the morning and in the evening before the reception, she freshened it up and darkened it for a nighttime look! I had an amazing time working with her-- she is very pleasant and fun, and was very receptive to my feedback/requests from the makeup trial to the actual day- I loved the way my makeup turned out and I felt like I did not have to worry about it at all. I loved that she was so enthusiastic about doing my makeup and it seemed like she truly enjoyed what she was doing and was going above and beyond to make it perfect! She has a great collection of makeup, and gave a nice touch up kit for me to use throughout the day, including blotting papers as well as the lip color for me to refresh as needed! And on top of it all, she is very professional and respectful, arrived on time, and fit in perfectly with the planner, my family/friends, and the other vendors. I would definitely recommend her to any other future brides or anyone else needing makeup/beauty services!

If your looking for a patient, talented, and more than fairly priced makeup artist Danina is the way to go! On one of the most important days of my life I knew I was in good hands. She is professional and very knowledgeable. She came to my mothers house on time and we'll prepared to work on many faces in a short amount of time.Before hand, met with me ,gave me a free trial, and we got to speak about what I wanted and expected. Everything went as planned in a timely manner! Her work is on point and all of my wedding party was extremely happy! Myself being the bride couldn't have been more pleased. I look back on the pictures and still am in ahh of how beautiful she made me look. For all of these reasons and many more we are forever grateful! I highly recommend her to anyone! She truly helped to complete our special day!

I am the owner of Kim Ifft Photography. I had the opportunity to work with Danina on a Boudoir Photo Shoot I did. My client came to the shoot with Danina, her makeup artist, and I have to tell you, I was blown away! Danina was amazing, she did an fantastic job with my client. She looked at the scenes as well as the outfits, and she made a great game plan of the makeup she would use and change throughout our shoot. We had a swimming pool scene, as well as outdoor scenes, the lighting was different for each, and she adapted to what my client needed as well as what I needed. As a photographer, I often work with makeup artists, I have seen all levels of makeup artists, and I must say, Danina ranks at the top of my list. I would hire her in an instant for any personal, as well as professional event I shoot.......

Susan provided makeup for my Big Day. It was fun to have the trial before the wedding so that way you get to know eachother as well as testing how the makeup looks and feels. I learned a lot about other products during the process. She is very knowledgeable about her product. I also have sensitive skin, so I let her know beforehand and she knew exactly which products to use. The greatest thing was that she came completely prepared for the wedding day because I had changed my mind the last minute to have fake eyelashes (we did not do this during the trial). It was no big deal to put them on and I can't believe how beautiful she made me look. Aside from her work, she is a very nice and sweet professional that is easy to converse well to get your mind off of the wedding.

Susan has done my make up on more than one occassion. She found the perfect foundation and color for my olive skin...I was amazed! I have always struggled with wearing the right color. Susan took one look at me and showed me what I should be wearing. In fact, I still use the same brand and color today. She is a true professional make up artist. Thank you!
