Carolyn does an amazing job with makeup! Every time she does mine I am so impressed with the color pigments and how smooth my skin looks! Highly recommendedMay 24, 2018
I used Carolyn to do my wedding makeup. I was told by one guest "I was glowing!" She was very personable, fun and professional. Met my needs! Thank you!Nov 14, 2015Verified
Could have been more creative with make up and done gravity eyes as requested. Also feedback from my PA was that she was not helpful when asked to help with a small party thing, and neighbor vendor said the same thing. She was on time and very reasonably priced.Jun 15, 2015VerifiedCarolyn J.'s reply
I'll post some photo examples from the party to give other people some insight on what the makeup looked like, but I definitely did everything I was requested to do. I can understand that being the mom running your daughters birthday that you were extremely busy and running around so small things might not have been noticed,but there were a handful of children who received graffiti makeup, especially the boys. Some children had specific requests for how they wanted their face painted and that is more important to me. Any small favor that was outside my job description I totally accepted. I was asked to throw around balloons for the party even when it wasn't in my job description, and I also set up and cleaned my station nicely before I left (which is something I would have already done without being asked.) The only other thing I was specifically asked to do was to do makeup on the birthday girl while she was getting her hair done. I was hesitant at first because she was moving around and being squirrely as a five-year old would be. But I still proceeded to do her makeup without any sort of resentment. Whatever other small favors weren't verbalized towards me.
Gentle, experienced, all around love getting my makeup done with carolyn! Would recommend for any event, very versitle style.Oct 10, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My price varies depending on the level of complexity of the makeup being requested, and the distance to where I travel to the client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?MAC trains me quarter-annually, AT LEAST, on seasonal trends for runway that relates to the every day war paint queens.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Ever since I became in love with editorial fashion that I saw in Vogue, W, or on the internet, I wanted to engulf myself in everything that had to do with creating that kind of work. So I now photograph, model, and provide makeup services. Whether or not it ends up in a magazine, I still love to create a living piece of art.
