  • What can I say about Alyssa other than she is simply the best. From the very start she was so sweet, so attentive and was always on the same page. She did my entire bridal party which included myself, 8 bridesmaids and my mom. With such a big group, everyone had different visions of how they wanted their makeup to look…Alyssa nailed it. Not only did she make me feel like a million bucks as a bride, she made everyone feel the best versions of themselves! Everyone looked incredible and the make up really popped in photographs as well as lasted all night. I even had a former bride tell me they wished their wedding make up looked that good on their wedding day. If I could give Alyssa 6 stars I would! Anyone looking for wedding make up..look no further.. you will be in awesome hands :)

  • If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Alyssa was easy to work with and felxible. Provided great advice to have my make-up and bridal make-up ready in time for the photographer. We looked flawless and I did not have to re-touch my lipstick the entire night. I never felt more beautiful!

  • I cannot say it enough – Alyssa is the most talented make-up artist that I have ever met! The entire process was incredibly smooth; she is so responsive and prompt with all correspondence and always willing to answer my 101 questions. Seeing her previous work online and on her social media I knew that I would be in good hands on the day of my wedding. I arrived at my make-up trial with only a vague idea of what I wanted for the wedding as I do not wear much make up regularly, but she listened to my ideas, offered her own based on my personal style, and I left confident that I would look exactly the way I wanted on the day of the wedding. Come the day of the wedding, Alyssa was able complete a total of 9 people’s make up, but worked meticulously on each person until they looked exactly the way they wanted. The products she used were very high quality and accommodated a few of my bridesmaids with sensitive skin. I was so happy with the way I looked on the day of my wedding and I know... Read more

  • I will never be able to put into words Alyssa's talent and her contribution to making my day the most perfect that it could have been. If you are still looking for a hair stylist and make-up artist for your wedding day-look no further! From the trial to the big day, Alyssa was available, knowledgeable, personable, and professional. She listened to requests and delivered desired styles for my bridesmaids the day of without hesitation all while providing her professional opinion politely if necessary. I showed Alyssa the make-up look and hair style I wanted as the bride and Alyssa was able to interpret/dissect the pictures and perform each look perfectly on me. Alyssa made me so unbelievably comfortable and calm during a time of nerves and anticipation. In addition, she is so sweet and just enjoyable to be around. Alyssa is a true, genuinely talented person in this field who you want for your big day. I can truly say because of Alyssa and her work, I felt like the bride I always envision... Read more

  • I knew of Alyssa because I work in the beauty industry as well, and we followed each other on social media without knowing one another. I am particular about the beauty pros I trust and have a good eye for talent being in the industry myself, so when my now-husband and I got engaged, she was one of the first people I booked and checked off my list after the really big stuff! I wanted to make sure I booked with her because she really does do such beautiful work! She was sweet and attentive to me and my bridesmaids the day of the wedding, and everyone looked so beautiful! Both his and my moms also got their makeup done, which they have more mature skin and the makeup obviously had to be a different, more natural style. Alyssa did a fantastic job on them as well, and the moms both looked so pretty! I could tell my mom (who is not much of a girlie, makeup type) felt so giddy and confident after she got her makeup done, which meant a lot to see on such a special day. Alyssa is amazing at kn...

I’m forever grateful!

  • This review is long overdue! Alyssa did my hair and makeup for my wedding on 10/21/18. From the start she was so professional and listened to me when I told her the look I was going for. Everyone agreed my hair and makeup looked beautiful on my big day. I would without a doubt recommend Alyssa for your wedding or other event. She also travels and will accept smaller wedding parties unlike some other artists.

  • From beginning to end, Alyssa was an absolute joy to work with. Her professionalism, flexibility, and responsiveness put my mind at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process! The day of the wedding, she arrived and set up in our bridal suite quickly and was very mindful of working at the right pace. She was able to glam up 6 bridesmaids, 2 mothers, and me all in a timely manner that kept all of us from feeling rushed! She used nothing but the best quality products, and I’m not kidding when I say that my makeup didn’t move AT ALL, which is a HUGE accomplishment given all the happy tears throughout the day! She also does a wonderful job at achieving both the natural glam looks that some of my bridal party wanted and the full glam look that I was going for. EVERYONE was SO happy with how their makeup came out, and I am forever thankful for how fabulous she made us all look. I wouldn’t have changed a thing! I also think her pricing was very reasonable given the quality of w... Read more

  • I was disappointed with the professionalism I received on my wedding day. Three people and myself (the bride)had Alyssa do our hair and makeup for our wedding day. My mom asked Alyssa the week before if she could get a Voluminous blowout and Alyssa agreed ,but instead she flat ironed her hair straight . When we asked Alyssa if she could just throw a few curls in it she said no that you can’t curl straightened hair. One of my moms eyelashes was also crooked when my sister and I asked if she could just please just take them off she insisted she would have to remove all the eye makeup and couldn’t do it. She was using more excuses than taking the time to fix the issue. We were not in a time crunch by any means, in fact she finished early and started packing up and left before putting the veil in my hair. On my wedding day the last thing I wanted was to worry about my mom not being happy with her hair and makeup and Alyssa didn’t step up and put me at ease that she would just take c... Read more

    Hi Brittany, Im so disappointed to hear your mom was not as pleased with some of the services. I thought we had a great day and I enjoyed spending that morning with you, your sister and your mom. For your moms hair I only gave her what was asked of me, after I flat ironed the ends to get rid of the frizz, she did later on ask for curls. I would of been happy to still do that, however I felt it was important to caution you that once the hair is flat ironed it’s hard to hold a curl. With your wedding day being extremely hot and humid, I was afraid it would completely fall. However if she still wanted her hair curled I would of absolutely done it! As for the lashes I applied it directly to her lash line. I could remove them however I would have to redo the eye makeup as well. Eyes are very delicate, and I would need to use eye makeup remover to safely dissolve the glue and remove. After explaining the process, she said never mind it was ok, so I wasn’t able to do that for her. Prior to me leaving I asked if you needed anything else before I left, you said everything was all set. I wish you mentioned before I left to place your vail in as I would of been happy too! I’m happy to hear you were pleased with your own hair and makeup but disappointed your mom was not as happy. I sincerely apologize for any misunderstandings and lack of better communication on my end.
