  • Dawn Johnson made me look better than I ever thought I could look with very little guidance and no trial (I missed my appointment). Because I'd had some cancellations, I had to hire Makeup Couture and Dawn at the last minute. I went on trust, that she knew exactly what she was doing and she far surpassed my expectations, showed up on time, was very professional, and made me look stunning on my wedding day. I only told her I wanted to look glamorous, like Old Hollywood. That's very broad and nonspecific, but she got it. What I got was elegant makeup and contouring that emphasized my best features, but what my guests saw was the features not the makeup. My eyes looked large, dark and glossy, like photos of Hollywood actresses that I've envied. She put double false eyelashes on me, but I didn't feel them after a few minutes and they were so realistic nobody realized they were false. The foundation was flawless, youthful and dewy with beautiful highlighting and contouring. I'm plus sized b... Read more

  • Dawn saved the day! After needing to cancel my services with another vendor at the last minute, I found MakeupCouture on WeddingWire and contacted Dawn. Her hair and makeup services were absolutely perfect for our wedding day in Atlanta. She came to our home and did bridal and bridal party hair and makeup that everyone raved about, and was so nice throughout the entire process, including our trials. She was competitively priced, communicated with me throughout the entire process, and was always professional. I've never felt more beautiful than I did that day, and Dawn played a huge role in helping me feel like I was the prettiest bride ever! The compliments on her work were overwhelming, and I would definitely recommend her services to anyone that asked.

  • Dawn did my hair and makeup and the hair for my four bridesmaids. Throughout the entire process, she was super flexible ( I had to change my services) and helpful in answering all my questions. The morning of the wedding she had a calming and professional attitude. This made the hectic stressful morning just that much easier. My bridesmaids hair looked amazing and I felt and looked absolutely beautiful! I would recommend Dawn to anyone and everyone. She is amazing!

  • Love love Dawn and her associate! There were 9 of us and we finished on time! All the bride's maids love their hair and their make up. I think it really helped that we knew what we wanted, gave her pictures before the wedding week and she executed them perfectly! I also love the idea that she did my trial make up for my dinner rehearsal so i was made up even then! I also wanted her to do my hair in such a way I can have a different look for my reception. She showed my maid of honor what pins to remove and viola... second look for the reception! Also one of my mom's friend needed help with her hair and she was able to accomodate her as well. She was very pleasant and easy going. Im so happy I got her for my wedding :)

  • Dawn is very gifted and professional. She arrived right on time for our very early 5:30 am session before my morning wedding. She is very good with airbrush makeup and made me look gorgeous! Also I highly recommend getting the hair extensions even if you have long hair. It will bulk it up and make it beautiful. I loved my extensions and hair on the big day ! Get a trial too so you can get ideas! I highly recommend her. Hire her today! She books fast!

  • Dawn & her team did an amazing job on not only my hair & makeup but also my entire bridal party's! She helped me decide how I should do my hair with my type of hair when I was indecisive, and it turned out better than I could have imagined! Our makeup was flawless too! It lasted all day and night! I'm trying to think of excuses to use her again. I would recommend her to anyone!

  • Dawn at Makeup Couture was fantastic! I used her for hair and makeup at my wedding. There were 12 girls getting hair and make up done. Dawn and her assistant got to the suite right on time and got to work. They moved the girls through the hair and makeup process efficiently, and did excellent work! We ended up right on time and we all looked beautiful! I had a half-up do which required extensions, and Dawn did my hair beautifully!! She is so talented and fun to work with. It is really nice that she can come to wherever you're getting ready, and make everyone in the wedding party look fantastic. From my 6 yeear old flower girl to my grandmother, everyone looked amazing and enjoyed working with Dawn and her assistant. I would recommend Maekup Couture to any bride. I love makeup and wanted to be super glam, but some of the bridesmaids wanted a less dramatic look; Dawn did both perfectly. I can't thank her enough for making me look and feel so beautiful on my big day!!

  • I do not recommend Dawn of Makeup Couture. I had a very disappointing experience. Dawn cancelled our contract twice. The first time she cancelled, I added another hair/makeup service and she agreed to stay on board. The second time, she cancelled because I asked to try two hairstyles during the trial run (half down and an up-do). I believe she cancelled because I had a small wedding party and she didn't think it was worth her time. She cancelled less than two months before my wedding. It took her nearly 3 weeks to return my deposit after she cancelled on me--I had to remind her to return it. I hired Dawn 10 months before my wedding. I told her I did not know exactly who in my wedding party would want to get hair/makeup done. I signed a contract for the minimum number of services she required--4 services. I thought we were clear that we may or may not add other services for bridesmaids. When I realized I would not get more services on top of the 4 services we agreed to, I got in t... Read more

    Ladies I do want to clarify any misconceptions this review may create. I am very reliable and professional as most my reviews here will show. Unfortunately this client, with whom I never met, changed a few things to her booking and I was not comfortable with the type of demands being placed on me. I did attempt to work with her on it and she wanted two trials for the price of one. Ladies I am very professional but due to my busy schedule, I cannot give my time away for free. I will give you, however, quality service. I would like you ladies to know that I actually never met this potential client and due to her unreasonable demands, discontinued any meetings and agreements because I felt it was not in our best interests. I am more than willing to work with all kinds of requests, as well as refund any money given for services I do not perform. Thank you kindly for understanding.

  • Dawn did the makeup for myself, most of my wedding party (4 girls), and my mom on the day of the wedding. I had chosen her as my makeup artist based on her good reviews, the fact that she did airbrushed makeup, and her pricing (which I compared to a few other similarly-rated makeup artists). Overall, I was not disappointed! I thought she did a fantastic job on all of our makeup - all of the ladies looked beautiful! She was able to complete makeup for the 6 of us by herself in a little over 3 hours. The looks also really seemed to hold up throughout the night, which was great since I tend to have oily skin. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist.

  • I would like to say, Dawn is a talented makeup artist. With that being said, I would only recommend Dawn for makeup. I was completely disappointed in my experience with Dawn. I had a great trial but her time management on my wedding day created a lot of unnecessary stress and took away from a good two hours of my photo time. I was told for the amount of people I had getting hair and makeup, there would be two people onsite to handle the workload. I emailed her to confirm this about two weeks out. When Dawn arrived, she was by herself. One positive, she did arrive on time and got straight to work. My bridesmaids provided photos of how they wanted their updos for the wedding. The first BM wanted a curly, slightly messy updo. Dawn gave her a classic bun. My BM was unhappy with the look and asked Dawn to fix it since it looked nothing like the photos she had shown her. Dawn did fix her hair but not after fighting her on what my friend was asking for. Another bridesmaid asked for a class... Read more

  • I booked Dawn Johnson eight months before my wedding date. We had specific terms in the contract for two hairstyles and makeup that would require her to stay during the ceremony to change my hairstyle for the reception. I contacted her in March to book a trial in May. Setting the trial date with her was extremely difficult. Given my work schedule I needed a weekend trial and she mainly did only week day trials. Dawn was not flexible with my schedule, even though I was providing her two months notice. In April she set the trial date for May, and stated it was "tentative." That should have been clue #1 that she was not dependable. A few days after setting our trial date, she booked a wedding for the same day. I understood that a wedding was more important than a trial, so we rescheduled for August. When attempting to reschedule, Dawn said I was not flexible because I told her that my work schedule would not allow me to do a trial during a weekday. We then reset the trial ... Read more
