Courtney did my makeup for my engagement photos and my makeup for my wedding. Courtney was so accommodating and understanding on my wedding day after a rough start and my bridal party getting there at all different times. She made everyone feel beautiful and listened to what they wanted. She made me feel absolutely stunning for both my engagement photos and on my wedding day. I would definitely recommend Courtney for your makeup needs!

Working with Courtney was an amazingly easy experience. She was easy to reach via email and text message, answered all my nervous bride questions and was a calming presence the day of the wedding. I had my makeup trial done for my Bridal Shower and got SO MANY compliments, so I knew I had made a good choice. The day of wedding makeup looked flawless the entire night, and all my bridesmaids loved their makeup as well. She is competitively priced and comes with a smile :) I highly recommend using her for your makeup needs.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I was lucky enough to have Courtney do my makeup for my engagement photos, bridal shower, and wedding. I loved the way my makeup turned out in all of my pictures from each one of those events. Courtney made sure that my makeup was exactly what I wanted and it exceeded my expectations every time. She is also super fun to have around while you are getting ready for your big day! Courtney is professional, affordable, and extremely talented, and exactly who you want to hire for your makeup needs!

I had the pleasure of having Courtney do makeup for my wedding and for my engagement photos and I couldn’t have asked for a better MUA! She is very professional yet easy going and fun to work with! She did makeup for myself, 5 bridesmaids, and the two mothers and everyone looked so beautiful. She listens to your requests and makes sure you are completely satisfied with your look. I am still gushing over my makeup when going through all the wedding photos! I would highly recommended Courtney to anyone looking for an experienced MUA!

BEST MAKE UP ARTIST EVER!  Courtney was such a joy to work with! Not only did she make myself, as well as all of my bridesmaids look perfect on my wedding day but also made our morning so enjoyable.  I grew up knowing Courtney from school when we were younger but as we grew up we lost touch.  Once I was engaged, a friend of mine recommended her to do my make-up (without knowing I knew her) and I knew it was a great idea to try her out.  From the trial run to the day of my wedding, I knew working with Courtney was the best decision.  She listened to exactly what I wanted and followed through.  I typically don’t wear too much make-up and my husband doesn’t like when I do so I wanted to go for a more natural look and Courtney knew exactly how to portray that.  She managed to give myself the all-natural look I was going for and make each of my bridesmaids look exactly how they wanted to look.  Aside from being a fabulous make-up artist, Courtney is EXTREMELY fun to have with you on your wedding day.  She provides a level of comfort and fun that I would recommend to anyone. Thank you Courtney for making us look beautiful and rapping with us all morning! I could never thank you enough!!

Thank you for making me feel beautiful on my special day. I honestly couldn’t ask to have met a better makeup artist- Courtney is amazing at what she does. The day I met her for my trial I was so nervous- I never had professional makeup done before but when I left I was so in awe. She did my engagement photos makeup, my wedding day makeup for me, my girls and my mom and mother in law as well as my boudoir makeup and Courtney really did exceed my expectations and she is the most sweetest woman- I’m so grateful to have met her and will for sure keep in contact with her. I would highly recommend Courtney for any makeup needs.

Courtney did my makeup for a fun little photo shoot that I was doing. She is such a sweet and funny person. I felt like I had known her when in reality, I had just met her. My makeup looked AMAZING. And thanks to her, I felt beautiful. The pictures came out amazing. She is very very good at what she does. I would recommend her to anyone!

Courtney has done my make-up for two weddings now.  Both times were for very important weddings. In the first one, I was the maid of honor and she did such a great job that the other was my own wedding!  She did such an absolutely amazing job I would highly recommend her to anyone.She is always punctual and professional. She brings all of the high end makeup anyone would need and she even brings her own special chair so you are at the correct height for her as she does your makeup.   She was worth every penny and I hope you hire her!

Courtney was recommended to me by a friend when I was looking for a make-up artist for my wedding. I was given her phone number and it was love at first text! Every conversation we had including crazy questions and frequent freak out moments were immediately responded to with nothing but reassurance and positivity. Courtney traveled to me the day of my make-up trial and as soon as we sat down and began, I knew that I had made the right choice. She was relaxed, down to earth and someone anyone can connect with and trust with the most important day of their life. On the day of my wedding, I had Courtney arrive at our venue before the sun came up and she was ready to deal with all our craziness! She did my make-up, as well as my 7 bridesmaids. Each girl looked gorgeous and had their own personal style and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Even after my wedding, Courtney and I still stay in touch and I love seeing her make other brides just as happy as I was. I recommend Courtney to anyone that asks me about a make-up artist and will continue to do so.

Courtney is beyond amazing!! As a fellow makeup artist it is so hard to find someone with both passion and talent! Courtney is my go to girl when I need help with weddings and even had my sister in law hire Courtney on her big day for her bridal party. I would highly recommend her talents to anyone looking for a great makeup artist for their special day, event or just because! She is a complete doll and pleasure to work with :)

Courtney was very easy to work with and very accommodating and sweet! No matter how many questions I asked, even repeated questions she always responded in a timely manner and was super nice! I would recommend using her, my bridesmaids and I were very pleased!!

I cannot say enough positive things about Courtney! I was lucky enough to find out about Courtney through my oldest sister who had her make up done for a work photo shoot. My sister raved about how great Courtney's work was so I reached out to her about doing my bridal makeup for my wedding. From my initial contact with Courtney until my wedding day, everything was so organized and easy. Like any bride, I was very anxious about what I wanted for my Day Of look. I wanted to look beautiful but didn't want to look totally different. Courtney took time to talk to me about my daily makeup look and my ideas for my wedding day. She was very thorough about making sure I got the time to express what I wanted. 
She did a make up trial with me at my house and nailed my dream wedding look!! On the day of my wedding, Courtney was timely and super prepared. Not to mention, she put up with my crazy bridal party! Everyone loved her! My advice is to book with her! You will not be disappointed.

Hey ladies (and possibly gentleman), If you're reading these reviews, it's probably because you haven't decided on a make up artist for your event. If that's the case, let me make this decision the easiest one you'll make. Courtney is a hidden gem that should be working for Vogue, The Walking Dead, or my daily personal make up artist (preferable the last one). She uses her skills to enhance your beauty, using the features already present on your face. A make-up artist wouldn't draw Angelina Jolie onto Lady Gaga, amirite? Point being, she doesn't make you look like an entirely different person. A person your groom (or bride), family, and guests wouldn't even recognize as you walk down the aisle. What she does do, is make you look, feel, and have the confidence of a goddess, and who wouldn't want that? Additionally, she will fit into your group like she's your sister. Her breath doesn't smell when she's inches from your face (please make sure your breath doesn't smell either), she dresses professionally (which is important for those "getting ready" pictures), and she's bloody talented, guys. Just look at her instagram and tell me she doesn't know what shes doing with her collection of 1,000 brushes and 400 shades of lip gloss, stick, and stain.

Courtney did a fantastic job on my makeup, as well as the makeup for my mom and bridesmaids. She was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with! The moments leading up to the wedding were a bit stressful, so it was a great ease to be able to rely on her to make sure that we all looked perfect. I would highly recommend Courtney to anyone looking for a makeup artist. Our wedding party and I loved her!

Courtney is an amazing makeup artist!! Whether its enhancing a brides natural beauty on their wedding day or doing intricate works of art for Halloween, Courtney will leave you looking amazing. Courtney has such great energy, super fun and always positive. I have reached out to her multiple times with make up questions and she has helped me and has given me her honest opinion on my everyday make up. I cant say enough about how great she is. I highly, highly recommend her!!

Court is AMAZING, she did my makeup for my baby shower as this large momma had NO interest. 
She made me feel stunning not only in my makeup which she did flawlessly with her talent, but her personality will really top off your experience, she is kind and knows how to make your big even fun and memorable not to mention you're going to look so fly everyone will be jealous.
So basically stop looking at anyone else bc you've found your girl!!!

Courtney is amazing at what she does! She provided me and my bridal party with the best makeup I could have asked for. Courtney exceeded my expectations in every way! She is incredibly talented and professional. She offered repeat trials until the makeup was just right. Courtney played a huge role in making our wedding day the best day of our lives!!! Thank you!!
