“I cannot thank Grace and her team enough for the amazing hair and makeup provided for myself and the bridal party!
Grace went above and beyond to make sure everybody looked their best, and it was very much appreciated! She is very sociable and easy to get along with, which made the morning very comfortable for all of the girls! Definitely recommend!
Thank you so much! ☺️”
“I met with Grace to do an eyelash tint and lift. She was wonderful to work with. She explained everything thoroughly, described what was taking place, and was very gentle. The end result, I love my lashes! They turned out amazing. Very satisfied.”
“Grace did an amazing job working with myself and wedding party! Everyone looked amazing, and are still talking about the great job she did three months later! I would highly recommend Grace to anyone who wants to work with the most amazing, kind and rock star makeup artist in town😊”
“Gracie is an incredible makeup artist!! She did my makeup for my wedding and I still can’t believe that was me! I tend to break out after wearing makeup so I don’t wear it very much. I did not have any break outs after and my makeup stayed in place after all of the tears from an emotional, beautiful day. Thank you Gracie! You were so much fun to work with.”
"Gracie is the calming voice and presence that you NEED the morning of your wedding. She'll even sing Disney songs and 90's throwbacks with you! Gracie's hard work, dedication, and attention to detail made me picture perfect on my wedding day and I could not be happier with her services. She made Pinterest pictures come to life and my makeup stayed on through my buckets of sweat in the unexpected 38 degree weather. My bridesmaids and mother looked absolutely beautiful. I couldn't have had a better pre-wedding morning. Thanks Gracie & team!"
"Gracie is by far the best make-up artist in town. She is very sweet and easy to work with. She will make you feel glamorous no matter the occasion <3”
"Thank you for making me the most beautiful bride I could be! I loved my makeup, and I didn't even have to touch it up through the day, it was just perfect!”
"Loved the Basics of Make Up class! Very helpful and still fun! I’m looking forward to more classes. Thank you!”
"Gracie is the best makeup artist in town!!! I had many opportunities prior to the wedding day to have her do my makeup (and hair on some occasions). She is very sweet and listens to what her client wants. The makeup lasts all day and very minimal touch ups are needed. It shows so pretty on camera. When there was a mix up in schedules Gracie just went ahead and calmly and professionally continued her work until we were all perfectly completed. My partner and his groomsmen were also completed by her assistant, which I highly recommend. They looked flawless in the photos. She is very professional and is super accommodating. Gracie ended up including a second artist at the groom’s location at no additional cost to ensure that all the aunts could be completed on time with the groomsmen. Gracie also did my lash extensions for my wedding day and they were beautiful. I had zero worries of lashes falling off. I would recommend her to any bride looking for makeup, hair or lashes on their wedding day. You will not be disappointed. Best of all she travels to the location. On a side note I have taken her makeup tutorial class. This is also highly recommended. It really helped to build my everyday makeup technique. She is my go to MUA in Tbay and I will continue to use her services for special events. Thank Gracie"

"Gracie is a very talented and passionate about what she does and you can tell by the end result! She makes you feel very welcomed and comfortable and transforms you into a beautiful work of art! I'm extremely thankful to have had the opportunity to have my hair and make up done by her for a Mother's Day contest winner/prize and I was not disappointed! She went out of her way to make a mama in need to have a day to herself to make her feel beautiful! Thank you again! There isn't enough words out there to describe how grateful and thankful I am for that opportunity you gave me! Your work is amazing!!"

If you are looking for the perfect makeup artist for your special day, she's your girl! Thanks again Gracie. You've made one happy bride xoxo"
"Grace did makeup for my July wedding! I have never felt so beautiful and yet still so much like me. She really listened to what I, my girls and my mom wanted and made us all feel gorgeous. Our wedding day was one of the hottest of the summer and my makeup stayed looking great the entire day. I highly recommend to any upcoming brides for your special day. Thank you, Gracie!!"
"Gracie, one of the sweetest girls to have to do your makeup & hair. She did my bridal makeup trial for me back in April and blew me away with a glammed look. I never felt so beautiful. This past week she did my makeup for my wedding day and was so accommodating with her busy schedule as she had two brides! Gracie was willing to travel to our venue location to do touch ups for makeup for our reception. Very professional and persistent. Thank you Gracie, it was the best day, and so fun to have you be a part of it!"
"Besides being awesome herself !! Her work is outstanding, being a makeup person myself I was very hesitant allowing anyone to touch my face. I am so happy we went with Gracie! All my girls looked stunning as well as my makeup lasted all night!"
"Grace did my makeup for a couple of formal events recently and she did an amazing job! I rarely wear eye makeup so I was nervous about trying a more dramatic look, but she made me feel comfortable and confident. Importantly, the makeup still looked excellent even at the end of the night. Grace has a great private studio space and she is extremely professional. She is knowledgeable about products and seems to know exactly what will look good with each person's skin/eye colour and facial features. I would recommend Grace without hesitation, and I would certainly go to her again in the future."
"Grace and team did a fabulous job. Hair and makeup lasted all day and evening! Thanks Grace!"
"Grace did my hair and makeup for my wedding last July and it honestly couldn't have asked for more. She knew exactly the look I was going for and above and beyond doing a perfect job on my hair and makeup, she was so calm and encouraging while bridesmaid drama was unfolding around me. She also went above and beyond and quickly changed my hair style so I could take pictures in a dress I was going wear later in the evening. Thanks for the wonderful day Grace!"
"Grace is amazing to work with. She is professional, timely, and extremely talented. She is very detail oriented, and creative, creating a look that suits you. Nothing is overlooked and Grace ensures everything is perfect- she executed my vision perfectly along with her creative touches. From the first moment working with Grace, I was completely at ease, I had no worries about my hair or makeup on the wedding day. She is a lot of fun, and very calming. I would highly recommend Grace."
"I loved my hair! It stayed all day and all night :)"
"Hi Gracie, I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU from myself and all of the bridesmaids. Everyone's hair looked amazing - and I really loved how you put the little twisty things I had into my hair-do! It rained a little bit during the ceremony, and for some of the pictures, but everyone's hairstyle held up and kept looking beautiful throughout the whole night!! The girls were all really happy with their hairstyles and so was I :) Thank you again so so much for helping us all look beautiful for the wedding!!"
"I wanted to say thank you for everything in regards to my wedding, you're amazing and we all looked hot as hell...my wedding party looked amazing because of you."
"Gracie is amazing! She is one of the sweetest and most talented girls I've ever met. As a photographer, I have collaborated with her on two photo shoots and her hair and makeup skills were so on point. I highly recommend her!"
"I hired Grace for hair styling for my wedding this fall. From the moment I contacted her to the day of, she was kind, fun, and made the whole experience wonderful. She is an extremely talented artist and made me feel beautiful for my special day. I would highly recommend her!!"
"Thank you so much for making both our special days "Picture Perfect!" you did such an AMAZING job! We wish you all the best, and hope to work with you again one day!"
- Rebecca & Sarah (brides and bridesmaids)
"Grace is an outstanding wedding hair & makeup professional. She made me feel totally at ease and confident about her work. I fell in love with her at the trial and immediately had to book her for the big day. On the big day she was professional, yet super fun and my mother and bridesmaids loved her :) Grace had all my bridesmaids in a certain (Victoria Secret) type of hair (all down do's) and had me in a gorgeous up-do that went perfect with my dress. It was a great experience and I have already recommended her to a friend who hired her!"
"Hi Gracie, I just wanted to get in touch with you to say thank you so much for making me look perfect on my wedding day. I know that in the rush of things I didn't get the chance to say how happy I was with the job you and your assistants did for me and the entire wedding party. We all looked absolutely stunningly beautiful and received so many compliments on the look and how cohesive we were together. The photos haven't come back yet from our photographer but from what some of our guests have shown me, I am so happy with the results. Thank you for helping to make my vision come to life. All the best!"
"Hi Grace! I just wanted to send you an email and thank you so much! You put make up on people who don’t normally wear make up and made everyone look absolutely perfect! You are so talented! It was so easy working with you. I felt so comfortable knowing you were looking after everyone. I feel very lucky to have stumbled upon your name! You took your time with each person and never once did I look at the clock to worry about time. You finished exactly when you said you would! Some of the bridesmaids were upset that they didn’t have you to do their makeup on their wedding day. Everyone felt so glamourous. Grace, you are truly wonderful! It was so nice to chat with you during the process. Wishing you all the best!"
"It was a pleasure to work with Grace, she's a lovely and talented artist who is more than happy to be flexible and accommodating :) our wedding party had a great experience and she made us all feel and look lovely :)"
"Absolutely love this makeup artist! Grace came right to our hotel room, was so fun and social. She made my girlfriends and I not only look beautiful, but feel amazing as well. She's so talented! I seldom wear makeup and was a little apprehensive, but my makeup looked natural and I felt stunning! Stayed on all night and I even slept like a corpse so I could keep it for the following day. Thank you for making our night Grace! We received so many compliments!!"
"Thank you for all you did for us yesterday. The day was filled with compliments. Thank for taking the time out of your busy schedule to travel down and do our hair."
