Tami is not only an amazing makeup artist, she is an amazing person. The calming demeanor and consistent energy helped my nerves on my wedding day.

The day before my wedding she color matched not only my bridesmaids and I, but also my mother in law, my mother, my grandmother, three aunts, and two cousins. While she was color matching she made lipstick that complimented each woman individually, from scratch!!! Not only was it fun, this made the wedding day go very smoothly.

The day of the wedding was jam-packed, but with the color-coded schedule that Tami created by getting in touch with the two ladies that were doing hair, it made the day go smooth without a question of where anyone should be at any given time.

We had a total of 16 people get their makeup done by Tami and her assistant (lashes and all) and we were all out the door for pictures by 2:45pm (wedding was at 6:00pm).

Everyone looks stunning… I can’t even begin to explain how beautiful each and every person was for the event. If you or a friend is on the fence about who to hire, don’t hesitate to choose Tami. She will blow you away.
