  • Shelby was a dream. She was extraordinarily well-prepared, professional, kind, talented and just all-around pleasant. She was flexible (e.g., didn't bat an eye when I shared that I had brought my own lip color, offered to stay as long as required to touch up makeup after a potential need due to re-doing of hair) and responsive to my requests/questions and those of my party. She did an incredible job with my makeup, making me look like an enhanced version of myself (without that overly-done up look that can make one look unrecognizable), and made my mom and mother in law feel comfortable, happy, and look radiant. Shelby navigated a tight setup like a pro, having already come prepared with her own table and lighting. In addition to all of this, she was an absolute pleasure to work with - collaborating excellently with other vendors and even went out of her way to help me resolve and manage a challenge with hairstyling. I felt at ease with her on my side. Truly amazing. So very grateful... Read more

  • Shelby was wonderful! I loved my makeup and Shelby was very easy to work with. She was organized ahead of the date as well as the day of. She took the time to explore what kind of look I was going for. I really wanted airbrush and then makeup that would enhance my features. Shelby did an excellent job and I would highly recommend her. (She was also just fun to chat with while getting ready!)

  • Shelby is amazing!! She just did my make up and 5 other girls in my wedding party. She was fun to work with and worked super well with the ladies doing our hair. Shelby was on time and was really proficient with her time and was very patient with the madness going in. She made us all look perfect!! HIGHLY recommend!!!

  • I could not have been happier with Shelby/McFarren Makeup for my wedding! I planned a fairly last minute 'covid wedding' in Manchester, VT and needed makeup for just me. Shelby was accommodating to my specific needs/location, fairly priced, made me feel safe/took cleanliness very seriously, and did a wonderful job. I don't wear a ton of makeup, and she nailed the 'better version of myself' look for my wedding day. My makeup lasted all day and looked great in pictures. She was also super professional and communicative leading up to and on the day of the event. Highly recommend working with Shelby for your wedding or other makeup needs.

  • Shelby did a fantastic job doing my makeup and 10 of my bridesmaids all on her own!!! I had to add two girls to the list at the last minute and she was fine with the additions and made sure we were all done in time! She also gave us a goody bag incase we needed some touch ups after the ceremony!

  • Shelby is the best! She came to do my makeup for our wedding in Lake Placid. She came with everything she needed to do our makeup down to the table and chair. We were all very pleased with our makeup! I would definitely hire her again.

  • Shelby was just awesome to work with! She got to our room to set up early and had a timeline in place. We were all ready on time and she made sure we were all happy with how we looked before starting on another person. I don’t wear a lot of makeup because I’m always afraid it will get cakey, but this wasn’t the case with my wedding makeup! It looked and felt like my own skin! I cannot thank her enough and I would recommend to anyone who wants makeup but doesn’t usually wear much.

  • Shelby was amazing! She worked fast (there were 9 of us total) and everyone's makeup came out stunning. All the girls got compliments all night. She listened to each of us and everyone came out happy with the results. I personally thought she was the best makeup artist I have ever worked with. In the past I always end up redoing some part of the makeup after it's been done but with Shelby, I didn't touch a thing! She nailed it, I looked like an elevated version of myself which was perfect for my wedding day. If you are looking for a personable, fast, talented makeup artist, look no further! Shelby is your girl!

  • Shelby was and is absolutely amazing. She made a point to come a bit early given the last minute schedule changes to our big day. She is friendly, professional, talented, and informative. As a bride, looking in the mirror after she worked her magic almost brought tears to my eyes. I highly recommend her services to future brides or anyone in need of makeup services. ❤

  • Shelby was absolutely wonderful to work with. She made me feel so comfortable at my trial and gave me a bunch of pointers on how to care for my skin leading up to my wedding day. My whole bridal party looked so gorgeous. Shelby also gave me a super helpful kit of emergency supplies to keep us all looking fabulous the rest of the day! She is a very talented makeup artist and very professional

  • Shelby was so easy to work with leading up to my wedding day. She answered all my questions in a timely manner. On the day of my wedding, she helped to make the day stress free by being on time, and completing my 6 bridesmaids makeup, and mine, with time to spare. I would highly recommend Shelby to any of my friends who are getting married!

  • I cannot recommend McFarren Makeup Artistry enough! Shelby made me feel stunning on my wedding day and went above and beyond to make my trail happen; Shelby traveled to my remote Vermont cabin and made note of all my trial-tweaks to perfect my wedding day make up look. On my wedding day, Shelby and her assistant arrived early, set up, and had everything ready to go for our 8 AM start. She managed to get our 11-person bridal party done an hour before pictures! Shelby and her assistant made me, my girls, and our mothers feel beautiful- everyone’s make up was perfect for their style, skin tone, and texture. I am thrilled with my beautiful my make up photographed, and that it stayed on SO WELL throughout the day. I truly did not even need a touch up after our ceremony, pictures, and reception. I am so pleased with my wedding day look and am thrilled to have connected with McFarren. Reasonably priced, high quality, and delightful to work with.

  • Shelby did the makeup for me and my girls for my wedding! All of us were blown away with how amazing we looked after! She was on time, was responsive to all my emails, and has a great personality and was fun to work with! The makeup lasted all night and the lashes stayed put! If I ever need my makeup done for anything else, I will definitely use her services!

  • Shelby is just flat out INCREDIBLE!!. From our first phone call to the first meeting, to the consultation through to our final event, I felt lucky to have had a very responsive make-up artist. For any brown skin girls, don't second guess booking Shelby because she did my makeup for my Ghanaian traditional engagement ceremony as well as my wedding day and my goodness she made me look fire!. I had 6 bridesmaids, MOB and myself and she arrived at least 15 minutes early before her scheduled arrival time to get started. She did everyone's makeup with a lot of time to spare. She was a lot of fun to work with. All of the bridesmaids and my mother couldn't stop talking about how amazing she was as a MUA and as a person! I seriously couldn't have asked for a better MUA! Thank you so much for everything Shelby!! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional makeup artist not just for their big day but for any special occasion.

  • Shelby was amazing. For my trial she came to my house, and she did amazing run which was used for our engagement photos. The day of the wedding she arrived early, her work was amazing, she has such much patience, and actually listens to what you want as a look. She was very kind, responsive when I had questions, and always willing to help with ideas for something that I don't normally wear. I wanted a natural look that made my eyes popped and I received so many compliments on how myself and my girls looked. Thank you for everything you did, I still actually need to get some of the lipstick she used because it was amazing. If you're looking for someone down to earth, funny, and very kind, Shelby is your person. We were very lucky to find her!
