"I just have to leave a testimonial out there for you. You are truly an amazingly gifted makeup artist. Not only did you do a perfect job with Madeline's makeup (which stayed flawless all.day.long!), but you were even concerned with the other details in her day...like making the photography even easier and better. You're a wonderful professional and it was a joy to work next to you!"

"Kim... I can't emphasize enough how grateful and honored I was to have you apart of the Harris/Campbell wedding!  The beginning stages of planning a wedding are filled with nerves, anxiety and adrenaline (if at all possible to put into words) All of the planning ,vendor options... what you want and what you need... the one thing my mom and I had zero anxiety or second thoughts on was asking you to be a part of our big day.  You are truly talented... everyone in the wedding party made some comment on how professional and talented you were!  Thank you so much for helping make our day even more special and memorable!!"

 "Kim,  Stafford and I want to thank you for the absolutely beautiful makeup artistry you graced our bridal party
with for Stafford's September, 2008 wedding.  Our ladies were radiant and so elegant...just the look we wanted.
 And Stafford was stunning! You were everything we expected and much more!
 The makeup lasted throughout the long day and the entire evening. We are so thankful we found you!
Stafford's mom
