It was a wonderful experience having Michelle as a makeup artist for my wedding. I felt so beautiful on our wedding day. She also did a trial run for me on the day we had our engagement photos, and she did a great job on both occasions. Michelle is prompt, professional, flexible and easy going. She is easy to talk to and makes sure to capture your vision. She often has contests running for her clients, which you can see on her Facebook page - check it out! I would recommend Michelle to anyone, and will definitely return to her if I need my makeup done for any future occasions.

Michelle did my makeup for my April 2015 wedding, and I would recommend her highly!
From first booking to trial to wedding day, she was a pleasure to work with. And she did a fabulous job -- my makeup looked great in person, photographed beautifully, and lasted all night.

Michelle was very accommodating and came to us for our makeup session to help with an already busy day. It was a last minute booking due to a cancellation and she went out of her way for us and made a trip to the Okanagan. The makeup looked beautiful and everyone was pleased and looked stunning with her final result that also included lashes. She was there to help with touch ups and the products used were long lasting on such an important day I would recommend her again to any bride!

Michelle is a wonderful lady to work with. She listens if you have concerns like for example...I have sensitive skin and she took my concerns into consideration. :) she also has a wonderful sense of style. I left my ladies in her hands without any guidance and they all looked absolutely beautiful!!!!! She's very professional and easy going. And hugely reasonable for any bride on a budget!!! We all got a ton of compliments on our make up and without any question she also fit my new sister in law and mother in law after we were done. Timing was impeccable. :-) She took everything and went with it. I trusted her to do her thing and she exceeded my expectations by far with all of us!!!! Love her!!!

I loved my makeup! I got compliments on it all night. It was extremely hot the day we got married and my makeup looked just as good at the end of the night as it did at the begging.
