“Claire is the BEST! I was a bridesmaid for Maymie h. (see her review) and she made me look gooood! We were a very ethnic bridal party, and Claire did an excellent job at accentuating our strengths, and softening the not so pretty things.”

“I had Claire do my makeup for a themed party I was going to. She gave me precisely what I envisioned with big bold eyes and well defined cheekbones.  She was fast too. She was very calm on a day when I wasn’t and made the experience so positive.”


-Crystal H.

“Claire and her team are truly the full package. Claire stepped in at the last minute (one month before my wedding) when I had to let my prior hair and makeup artist go. Claire picked up the pieces and never skipped a beat with planning the perfect hair and makeup for me and my ladies. Leading up to the wedding, Claire did her research ahead of time, asking for photos of me and what I wanted for hair and makeup, then looked up photos of my wedding party on our website, to make sure she came fully prepared with the supplies she would need to accomplish the looks we wanted.”
