  • Ryan was amazing! She was so easy to work with and made sure we all looked gorgeous! I got so many compliments not only on my makeup but that of everyone else's. AND everyone said how wonderful she was to work with. Thank you so much for making my day extra special.

  • Kathy was great to work with - she exceeded all of my expectations. I originally found Blend after pouring through tons of photos on WeddingWire, and they stood out to me because their work looked beautiful as well as natural. I was thrilled to hear they were available for my day, and was so excited when Kathy invited me and my friend into her own home to enjoy some champagne and do a trial. Kathy was very patient and was great at hearing my suggestions and reflecting them in her work. When it came to the day of the wedding, Kathy arrived promptly and with a huge smile on her face. All of the women looked absolutely gorgeous - and so much of that was because of the amazing work Kathy did. She was so patient and understanding she was able to put makeup on my Mom, who had started out the day saying she did NOT want makeup because she wanted to look "natural", and made her look so natural and BEAUTIFUL that my own mom had to swallow her own words. And, of course, Kathy made me look an... Read more

  • I can't say enough good things about Ryan and the Blend Make-up Team! I first met Ryan at my brother's wedding and was so happy with my makeup that I knew instantly I'd want to have her do makeup for mine. Not only is Ryan incredibly talented, she really pays attention to what her clients feel comfortable with in terms of makeup. I had 8 bridesmaids who all have very different styles and she and her team accommodated every single one of them, along with my mom, mother-in-law and grandmothers. I was so happy with the end result of my makeup—Ryan really knows how to keep everything natural but still camera ready. She's also just so much fun to work with. We were all done with our makeup early and Ryan took the time to carefully apply touch ups and make sure everyone was camera-ready. I'd highly recommend Ryan to anyone!

  • Can I just say... I LOVE Kathy!! She did a phenomenal job at my trial and on my wedding day! All my bridesmaids were raving about her and how well she did (not to mention friendly!). She really took the time to listen to any little changes I wanted to make from when I had my trial to the day of the wedding and made them happen! I felt flawless! I have rosacea and there were absolutely no signs of redness! I cannot thank her enough for the extra above and beyond she went to making my Mom feel more like herself. My Mom was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer April 2016 and has been undergoing chemo and radiation before, during and after my wedding. She lost all her hair and started to lose her eyebrows and eyelashes. It was so nice seeing my Mom look like her again and to have her feel beautiful. She gave her back her eyebrows and put on small individual lashes to give her a more natural look. Overall, Blend as a company is so extremely professional, personable and a joy to... Read more

  • Book Marquia and you will not be disappointed! From the moment we met at the trial, she made me feel so at ease and 100% confident in her abilities.She contacted me the day after the trial to see if everything held up and if I wanted to change anything, I felt like she was really trying to give me exactly what I wanted. For the wedding day, I wanted a natural look, but i also wanted to cover up my many blemishes. She made me feel so beautiful! My girls looked gorgeous and I could not have asked for a better make-up artist!

  • I loved how myself and my bridesmaids looked the day of the wedding. Their team can do both natural and dramatic looks equally adeptly. They were even understanding about my "germaphobia," indulging all my questions about how the brushes and other products were cleaned. I can't recommend Blend enough!

  • Marquia Kinard is so talented and I would recommend her without reservation. My makeup looked absolutely stunning for my wedding. It was very natural yet photographed beautifully. She truly made me look like the best version of myself while still looking like myself. I received so many compliments. It also held up through tears, 90 degree heat, and wild dancing. One of my bridesmaids had her makeup done before 10pm and her makeup still looked perfect over 12 hours later. Marquia is also an absolute joy to work with. I absolutely loved every minute I spent with her during my engagement session, wedding trial, and on my wedding day. Same goes for my bridesmaids. We all wanted to be friends with her after she did our makeup. Not only is she fun and spunky, but she is also highly professional. You won't regret having her do your makeup.

  • Maliki was AMAZING - she showed up super early, did beautiful make up for my 7 bridesmaids, my niece, my mom, my MIL, and me, not to mention a couple touch-ups for the groom! So nice, so flexible, and she was able to give me EXACTLY what I wanted. SO grateful to have had such a wonderful person there while we were all getting ready!

  • Kathy at Blend is wonderful! I cannot say enough good things about her! Blend came highly recommended from a few of my other vendors. I did a trial with Kathy and one other place but there was no competition, Blend was by far the better choice and I couldn’t have been happier. The trial was at Kathy’s home studio which was so warm and welcoming. She came to our venue the day of the wedding and it was such a joy to spend the morning with her. She is so friendly, caring and has amazing talent! The next morning at brunch a few of the girls who got their makeup done still had it on and it still looked fabulous! They didn't want to wash their faces because they loved their make up so much! Kathy even gave me a custom lipstick she created if I needed touch-ups.. what she put on lasted all day/night but now I have a tube of lipstick that’s the exact shade that I wore on my wedding day! A small detail that made such a touching impact.

  • Ryan and her mother were a great team the day of my wedding. All of my bridesmaids loved their makeup and mine was perfect. They were flexible and able to work with my fluctuating schedule to make sure everyone's makeup was finished. I had a great time!

  • Ryan from Blend do the most amazing job on my wedding makeup and the makeup of all my bridemaids, my mom and my mother-in-law. Everyone's make-up looked flawless and played up each person's individual features. Every single one of my bridemaids commented to me about how much they loved their makeup, which I think is often rare. One even said it is the best wedding makeup she has ever had, and she has been in a ton of weddings. Ryan is the sweetest most pleasant person to be around. Her assistant also did an absolutely amazing job. Throughout the entire process, Ryan was always super responsive via e-mail. On the day of my wedding, they were ahead of schedule the entire morning, which ensured I wasn't stressed. I just recently received my professional pictures and I am even more amazed at how beautiful my makeup looked. It really stands out in pictures, and I truly feel like she made me look the most beautiful I have ever looked. I couldn't be happier with Ryan and would r... Read more

  • Kathy was a star! She created the most beautiful looks for me, my five bridesmaids, and the mother of the groom, despite the fact that we provided very little direction getting started. And she was an absolute pleasure to work with! Even though we met for the first time on the morning of the wedding, Kathy immediately put us all at ease and addressed any concerns we had about overdone make-up. She knew exactly what to do to accentuate each individual's best features and natural beauty. Kathy also patiently answered questions about products and provided tips for us to use for our everyday looks! I highly recommend Kathy and her competent team!

  • Ryan is the best! She did my friend's wedding make up and me as a bridesmaid before so I knew I would not be disappointed. I only had 5 months to plan my wedding so as soon as I got engaged I booked Blend. I loved my wedding make up even more than I loved my trial. My photos looked great and all my bridesmaids looked wonderful. I would recommend having hair and make done onsite- the whole wedding day was fun and relaxing.

  • I worked with Kathy for my trial and wedding day make-up. I loved the trial make-up for my engagement photos. It was stunning. On the wedding day, it wasn't as good. For my bridal party it was half and half in terms of looking and feeling beautiful and confident with their make-up. Generally, and in hindsight, it would have been worth it to hire another hour for bridal make-up touch up for a summer wedding.

  • I worked with Kathy for my event. I loved the trial run which I did for my engagement photos. She was accommodating in terms of my appointment and fitting me in that day and listened to my wishes for make. I was so pleased, so I signed with her. The wedding day, Kathy arrived on time and set-up by a window for the natural light. Overall, I was not thrilled with my make-up. My neck was not airbrushed, and because she did the airbrush after eyes and brows, the brows were caked in foundation. To fix it, she just went over the brows again. That made the brows bigger and thicker; a look that did not fit my face, especially since I have smaller eyes. She didn't have a hand-held mirror so I did not see this until after she was done. Time was also not on our side since it took longer to get through 6 people than she planned for. 3 of the 6 loved their look and were so happy with it, the others were not as confident and ended up adding their own touch to their looks. Kathy is kind and gener... Read more
