  • Lauren and Kim were AMAZING! I would recommend them to anyone. My wedding took place in July 2012. From the time I initially contacted them about their services, up until (and even after) the wedding day, they were nothing but nice and helpful. They did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup, as well as my bridesmaids' hair and makeup. They came to my parents house the morning of my wedding, which made everything so much easier. Lauren and Kim are very easy to talk to and get along with - all of us felt like they were one of our friends, chatting easily and making jokes with us. I have sensitive skin and am very careful with the products I use on my face, and I felt that the makeup used was high quality and did not make me break out at all. My face did not get shiny/oily the whole day (and remember it was hot, since it was July) as well as my makeup stayed "set" because I cried a bit during the ceremony. Lauren had assured me the airbrush makeup was sweatproof/tear proof and s... Read more

  • Words cannot describe how amazing Lauren & Kim are! After receiving their services as a bridesmaid in my cousin's wedding, I knew I needed to book them for my wedding. Not only are they professional and outstanding at what they do, they are so easy to get along with and made the morning of my wedding a blast. Even with a crazy wedding party size of 11, our morning moved ahead flawlessly. Our hair and make up lasted all day/night, even after spending the entire evening on the dance floor. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone who wants to feel/look like a princess on their wedding day. Looking forward to working with Expert Make-up Artistry in the future!!

  • Lauren and Kim are the best! They came right to my mothers home in manchester set up and was ready to roll. All my bridesmaids looked amazing and i really could not be happier with how my makeup and hair came out. Even at your most nervous Lauren and Kim make you feel relaxed, make you laugh and start your wedding day out feeling uplifted and on the right track.

  • Lauren and Kim are not only phenomenal professionals but phenomenal people. They were on time, prepared, excited and supportive. When you meet them you feel like you've known them for years. They gave me the best makeup I've ever had in my life for my wedding day without any direction from me! I had zero idea of what to tell Lauren about my makeup and she still did the perfect job. My hair done by Kim was insanely amazing and stayed solid for 13 hours and I had on a head band which I can never get to stay, Kim made it solid. I was complimented all night on my hair and makeup and could not have been more proud to tell them who was responsible for it! (the best part was that I was able to enjoy my entire wedding without running to the bathroom once to "freshen up" because my makeuo and hair was perfect the entire time.

  • Lauren and Kim were terrific to work with. They arrived on time, had everything with them. They made us all look so beautiful. I am the mother of the bride, and I have never looked so good. I was not overdone, but if I say so myself, I looked great! My younger daughter was a bridesmaid and she does usually does her own makeup, quite well. Well, Lauren did an amazing job and my daughter has never looked better. The bride, my older daughter, well what can I say, all brides look beautiful. This girl rarely uses make up so she was concerned that she would look to done up. Well, that was not the case, Lauren made her look like a beautiful natural beauty. The pictures don't lie! As far as the hair goes, Kim was great. We showed her pictures, and she interpreted them to create hair styles for each of us that were so very complimentary. I wish Lauren and Kim could do my hair and make up every time I had a special occasion! They were calm and collected and never became anxious or ... Read more

  • Lauren and Kim did my hair and makeup for my wedding in 2011 and I still rant and rave about them to anyone that will listen. Not only are they THE BEST at what they do, but they are honestly the funniest girls I’ve ever met. By the time we finished, I wanted them to come to my wedding. You cannot go wrong with this dynamic duo for your wedding or any special occasion!

  • Lauren and Kim at Makeup Artistry were fabulous! They are very quick and proficient and you can tell they have a lot of experience. They are extremely personable and made my entire wedding party feel at ease chatting throughout the morning getting ready. By the time they left they felt like old friends! My bridal party members each looked unique-they did not do one or two stock styles. Kim suits the hair to what each person would like and feels comfortable in. She also did my mom’s hair which is extremely short because it is growing back from chemo. Lauren’s makeup is wonderful…she had all different ages and did each appropriately. I had some morning nerves and Lauren handled me with such care and did all she could to make me relaxed and ready. I cannot thank these girls enough for their beautiful work and the great experience they provided.

  • Using Expert Makeup Artistry was one of the BEST investments I made for my wedding – I am still receiving compliments about my hair and makeup! From the trial to the wedding, Lauren was incredibly friendly and responsive and would even periodically check in with me to see how I was doing with wedding planning. Unfortunately, she was booked for another wedding on the same day, but she still answered all of my makeup/hair questions, and really made me feel at ease about everything. I really appreciated her flexibility and felt like she acted more like a friend than a vendor. It’s obvious that she really cares about her clients and wants to do everything she can to create the perfect beginning to any bride’s wedding day! I hired Kim to do hair and Paula to do makeup for myself, my 5 bridesmaids, my mother, my mother-in-law and my flower girl, and everyone looked fantastic! The morning of the wedding, both ladies showed up early, kept us calm & collected, and were super easy going, ... Read more

  • Lauren and Kim did the hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party on 05/21. They were the only trial I went to. They arrived earlier than scheduled and had us done early as well (with no rushing around). Everyone looked FANTASTIC! They were very flexible in terms of what styles we liked and also having to make a few unexpected changes to the contract. They even reviewed the pictures they had taken of my mom and I at the trial and came equipped with additional suggestions the day of. Best of all, the makeup wasn't too heavy and cakey; I looked like myself but fancier (which was important to me). The makeup and hair lasted until the next day and looked perfect through lots of dancing. I looked the best I ever have, and more importantly, felt the most confident I ever have. I recommend them without a doubt!

  • Working with Lauren and Kim was a pleasure. Not only are they both friendly and easygoing but more importantly, reliable, affordable and incredibly talented. As most brides know, the day of your wedding carries a mixture of emotions and you just hope your day goes by smoothly and without a hitch. For me, Lauren and Kim helped make that sentiment possible. Lauren and Kim arrived a little earlier than the start time, which was comforting, and immediately got to work. The two of them were able to handle a total of 6 ladies, including myself, within just a couple of hours-working seamlessly as team. The mood in the room was light, as Lauren and Kim would switch off on girls, never once making anyone feel rushed or unsatisfied. By the time we were all done, we felt pampered, gorgeous and confident. I can’t say enough good things about Lauren and Kim. As the bride, it was really important to me that my bridesmaids, mother and mother in-law, felt good about themselves and the money ... Read more

  • Lauren and Kim did SUCH a fabulous job with hair & Make-up. My sister and I went for a trial before the wedding, and they took the time and patience to try different styles. They took notes and picutres of all of the different styles that we tried. On the morning of my wedding they arrived (each with an assistant) at 5:30 am and were so calming and professional! They made sure that I didn't worry about a thing! I was so pleased with how my hair and make-up came out, and so were the rest of the girls! My hair even stayed in the whole next day for our brunch!!! Thank you so much to Kim and Lauren for making me feel like princess for a day!

  • My husband who is not a big fan of make-up at all, honestly and truly loved the magic that Lauren worked on my face. I didn't look like I was overly made-up especially since it was a day time wedding. I had the airbrush make-up and that stuff stayed on for hours!! I am very happy that I decided on the airbrush considering that my wedding day ended up being almost 70% humidity and we had an outdoor wedding!! Kim did such an awesome job with my hair! I didn't want my updo to look severe and overly done. I LOVE how she made my hair look so organic and so touchable looking. These two ladies made me look and feel very beautiful on my wedding day. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!!

  • Lauren is truly a phenomenal talent. For my makeup, I was looking for a glamorous yet approachable look, and she nailed it. I opted for airbrush application, and her work lasted until I took it off more than 12 hours later. Two of my bridesmaids also had the airbrush, and they were also pleased. She arrived on time at my prep site, and worked efficiently - even amid the chaos surrounding her! She does trials at her studio in Cresskill, and she travels with a three-person minimum.
