Jaclyn was my makeup vendor for my wedding on December 13, 2014. Jaclyn's professionalism, friendliness, and kind spirit superseded my expectations. I met with two other makeup artists before being blessed to find Jaclyn....I tell you....I didn't know if I would be able to find a makeup artist that would do my makeup the way a bride should look on her wedding day (natural beauty with a glow) instead of someone about to hit the runway or on the movie screen (cakie). Jaclyn did just that. I also had a party of 8 ladies..all of which had varying skin color types as women of color typically have. Jaclyn was timely in applying everyone's makeup, everyone's makeup matched their skin color perfectly and everyone looked so very beautiful. The contouring she did was perfect. She did such a great job that I felt that their were 9 brides instead of just one. :-) The wedding guests and others who have seen our pictures on facebook are still asking about the master mind behind our makeup...people who don't even live in Tennessee are wanting to gain information about our wonderful makeup artist to determine if somehow they can book her. I would recommend Jaclyn 1000 times for any social event and look forward to using her again for any future social events I may have. I loved her!

Laurel was fantastic! I hired her to do makeup/hair for my wedding. (Bride, Matrons of Honor, Bridesmaids, Mother of the bride and mother of the groom) She was so accommodating and quick to answer any questions I had leading up to the big day! All of my girls had their own ideas of what they wanted to do with their hair/makeup and Laurel made it happen. They all looked absolutely stunning on my wedding day and I couldn't have been more please with my hair and makeup. As great as she is with hair, she's even better with makeup. It's definitely her wheelhouse! I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a professional, talented, sweet hair and/or makeup artist for any event-- especially a wedding. She traveled such a long way for BOTH my hair trial and wedding! She's awesome!

Resena was absolutely amazing! I found her here on Thumbtack about 1 month before my wedding and luckily she was available. After looking at pictures of her work and exchanging messages with her for a few days, I felt a connection to her and knew she was the person for me (not to mention she is from Atlanta- same as my husband)! She was very flexible and came to my MOH's house for the makeup trial one evening. See picture attached. She has such a professional setup! Brings in a huge studio light, her own chair and lays out all brushes and makeup on the table- very impressive prep! The makeup trial was awesome and I really had a chance to see what I would look like on my big day. I already had my hair trial that day, so seeing the full view was great! I don't wear makeup often (my husband actually hates it) and I wanted to look very natural, just polished and pretty for the wedding- she completely understood. She was very receptive to my concerns and adjustments I wanted to make to my eyes and lips. On the big day she arrived early completing my mom's makeup and then mine. I received so many compliments throughout the day SPECIFICALLY about my makeup! People even commented that my mom looked better for my wedding than she did for her wedding 2 years prior (probably because I did the makeup for hers), lol. Bottom line, Resena was absolutely amazing. Always prompt, always professional and definitely put out a great work product! She helped make me a beautiful bride! She was also much more affordable than others I found around Nashville! I know thumbtack is an unconventional way to find a makeup artist for your wedding, but Resena is definitely the right person for the job! I wish I could get married again so she could do my makeup! :) Thank you so much Resena!! See attached for a couple of wedding pictures. (Sorry they will not rotate the correct way).

Faith is amazing!!! I was so nerves because I never had my hair and makeup done before. I started looking around for a makeup artist and talked to two other girls before a friend of mine told me about Faith. I had her do my hair and make up for my engagement photos and it was perfect. I hired her on that day to do my wedding makeup and hair and my bridal party of five.I just love her she's so nice she and made me feel super comfortable and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone!!!

Hannah makes you feel so special when doing your makeup. She compliments you and really listens to your requests and gives very helpful advice. She makes the, sometimes long, process of getting your makeup done go by so quickly with her personable personality. It feels more like you're hanging out with a friend, then a makeup artist, while she makes you look beautiful. Would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of makeup services.

I've worked with Justine on a countless number of shoots. She always arrived early and was consistently a key asset to have on board. Justine got along with all team members, acted as a professional, and brought a good sense of humor when allowed. She's worked my shoots as a wardrobe stylist and a makeup artist and is amazing performing both tasks. When Justine is scheduled, that's one less person I have to worry about!

Cordnie came in last minute as a wedding makeup artist replacement. Originally I chose a different artist that was a little more well known, but the artist cancelled on me last minute. Cordnie not only quickly found time to do a trial session prior to my wedding date for comfortability, but she was on time, the makeup was flawless, and she worked swiftly enough that people outside of my wedding party were able to buy her services as well before the wedding began. Our makeup lasted from 12 noon until 11pm when the wedding ended. That says a lot about her products. From what I saw, she used mostly Mac, which was comforting for me. I would recommend her to anyone! She went above and beyond, and We couldn't have asked for better.

Corrine did my makeup for my wedding. I had a certain look I was wanting and Corrine nailed it! She was so professional yet made me feel relaxed on my big day. I would absolutely recommend Corrine to be your makeup artist for any occasion! She treats your face as a work of art and the results are stunning!
