  • I highly recommend Candice Hardy if you're looking for a makeup artist for your wedding! Candice's makeup artistry skills are top-notch and made me look absolutely beautiful on my special day. She also has a winning personality and truly makes you feel special. I had a diverse group of bridesmaids with different complexions and skin types and Candice was able to make each one look beautiful with a wide array of shades and products to complement any skin tone. She took care to understand our skin type and match products accordingly. She made sure our looks lasted well into the night despite the heat of the day. Candice was very responsive throughout the process and answered all of my questions promptly and providing great recommendations when needed. All of my bridesmaids felt and looked beautiful and wanted to know her information so they could hire her for their events. She even presented me with a personalized makeup bag with my name on it! I was beyond pleased with Candice's s... Read more

    Rhonda!! What a pleasant surprise to receive a review from you. Thank you so much. I'd love to see some of the pictures. I know they had to be glamorous with Omar Zeta as your photographer

  • Candice is such an awesome make-up artist. She has an uplifting, welcoming personality and made me feel at ease. She was willing to meet me near my wedding venue and I really appreciated that. The make-up was flawless and and I loved that she came prepared with so many foundation shades (so important for folks with melanin!). The make-up lasted all evening and still looked fresh towards the end of the night. Everyone was complimenting me on my make-up. I am definitely reaching out to her for future events.

    Thank you so much Lark! I had an amazing time servicing you on your wedding day. It's so crazy how it was right on the cusp of the COVID madness beginning. Nonetheless it was a pleasure to service you and I can't wait to see the pictures.

  • Candice did a GREAT job on me, my bridesmaids, and my mother! I was a little worried about my mom - she has been doing her make up one particular way for like her whole life and this was the first time she had ever had her makeup done, and she looked BEAUTIFUL! Would 100% recommend Candice to anyone looking for a MUA

  • I loved working with Candice for my wedding! I originally was going to do my own makeup, but after we had to reschedule the wedding, I realized I wanted one less thing to have to stress about. After scoping out her Instagram and reading many rave reviews, I reached out to her about a month before my wedding, and I was so happy to learn that she was available! She was flexible, her responses were always timely, and she was happy to answer any questions I had. She is very professional, while also being fun and super easy to talk to. During my trial, she surprised me with my favorite snack and wine, which was so sweet! She asked questions to get an understanding of my vision, and let me be a part of the process. On my wedding day, she and her second artist, Tara, arrived on time and got set up quickly. All of my bridesmaids enjoyed talking to them while having their makeup done, and of course, everyone looked stunning! Candice made sure to take into account any changes we'd talked abo... Read more

  • Candace provided 5 star service for sure:-) She is very professional. From our initial contact up to my actual wedding day and even thereafter Candace's communication was excellent . Candace is exceptionally talented. My as well as my daughters makeup was FLAWLESS. She did an AMAZING job! Not only was her work outstanding she was very personable. This will definitely not be my last experience using Candice Hardy Makeup Artistry. No need to look any further ladies because your day won't be all that you expect it to be if you don't use Candace Hardy. She truly helped to enhance my natural beauty which is just what I was looking for. THANK YOU CANDACE!!!!! Can't wait for my next Candace Hardy Makeup Artistry experience:-)

  • It was such a pleasure working with Candice for my wedding! I rarely wear makeup so it was very important to me to have a lighter look . Candice was great at offering suggestions for colors, etc. and gave me the perfect natural glow I desired. My bridesmaids looked fabulous and loved their looks as well. Candice is highly skilled but also very humble. She brings such positive energy, and I felt very comfortable through the entire experience. Candice is super responsive and replies quickly to emails and texts. She is very professional and arrived early to ensure she started and ended on time, even with a location change halfway through the job. Bonus: she made note of my favorite candy and brought that as well. I would reccomend Candice to anyone that I know.

  • From the very first moment I spoke with Candice on the phone, to the very last moment she sent me off all glammed up as I went off to my “first look”, she was amazing!!! Candice was patient with me and all of my bridesmaids as we explained what we wanted done. She was friendly, kind, outgoing, and made every single girl feel confident and beautiful. I would 100% recommend her and Tara, the other MUA who came along for my big day. They arrived earlier than scheduled on the day of the wedding, which helped give us more time to truly take care of every single girl’s needs. I showed a picture to Candice of what I envisioned for my bridal makeup and the result was spot on. At the end of a very long, fun morning full of makeup and lots of laughs, Candice presented me with a little surprise gift bag filled with a few full size products that she used on me throughout the day. Thank you Candice and Tara for making my wedding dreams come true!

  • We don't live in the city of Richmond so I use Instagram to be able to find a makeup artist for my wedding day. I was immediately drawn to Candice pictures I knew I wanted her for my wedding. Her communication was amazing from start to finish. The day of the wedding, we had so much going on and we had to make so many changes to the makeup schedule but she was always flexible. We were running behind so she worked on my makeup as I was getting my hair done at the same time. My mom called her a magician because she made her like so beautiful. She had the entire bridal party looking amazing.

    Thank you for trusting me Vee and writing this review! I had such a good time with you and your girls. You are truly loved by those closest to you and it shows.

  • Candice was great to work with from the beginning to end. She won me over during my trial when she surprised me with my favorite milkshake. Candice was very accommodating and willing to do anything to ensure I was comfortable with my look and made sure I looked my best. All of my girls looked absolutely beautiful.

  • I was originally booked with another MUA, but after that fell through I immediately hit panic mode and was wondering what I was going to do. After a quick Google search and a personal reference, I found Candice and was immediately hooked by her social media and online presence. I could tell just from her videos and pictures on her Instagram that she was fun and energetic which is always an added bonus in a wedding vendor to bring positive energy to the day. After contacting her, I was impressed by her thorough interest form she has you fill out. Not only did it ask the standard questions such as date, time, location etc. but it also asked about your skincare and beauty routines and what your current practices are. I could tell Candice looks at the entire picture when it comes to makeup application and that starts with skincare. That made me feel like I was in good and thoughtful hands. Candice was always extremely responsive and quick! I was able to schedule a makeup trial with her wit... Read more

  • I cannot recommend Candice enough. I’m so picky about makeup so finding the perfect person to do mine on my wedding day was one of the main things that stressed me out. When I met Candice, I knew she was exactly who I was looking for. Not only is she a boss at her job but she’s kind, hilarious, outgoing and extremely professional. She has a unique way of making you feel beautiful while taking the wedding stress away as she does your makeup. I had a lot of last minute changes happen and as you can imagine that’s not exactly what a bride needs when her big day approaching, but Candice was very flexible and accommodating the whole time. Again, I can’t recommend her enough!!

    Hi Brooke! This is one of the most beautiful reviews I've ever received. It was truly and honor to service you. With so many artists to choose from I'm so glad you chose me. Thank you!
