Client Love


I had my makeup lessons with Michelle and absolutely loved them. They were great learning experiences by a top makeup artist in the industry and I learned how to apply makeup to myself for day looks, night looks, how to take day makeup to night. I walked away with tangible notes on how to do it by myself moving forward too. Michelle also did a makeup audit with me and recommended products for me to buy that I was missing. I would highly recommend hiring Michelle for a makeup lesson, event, or photoshoot because she is not only top notch but extremely patient, a great teacher, and fun!
