"I cannot say enough amazing things about Grace. She did SUCH an
excellent job with hair and makeup for me, my mother and all of my
bridesmaids. I couldn't do a trial because it was a destination wedding
for me, so we arranged everything via email and the whole process was
really stress-free. The day of, she was everything you'd expect a
professional makeup artist to be on your wedding day - prompt, efficient
and super awesome at hair and makeup. A month later, my bridesmaids and
my mom are still talking about how great they looked. There was a lot
of squealing about their eyebrows. My makeup lasted all night without
any touchups - I was really impressed. I would absolutely recommend
Grace to anyone getting married in NYC."

"I had many friends recommend hair
and makeup artists, but I selected Grace, because out of the various
vendors, she was most professional in our correspondence. I had two
trials to try out different styles (I am a super Type-A control freak),
and Grace was not only not very amenable to my requests, but also
supportive with suggestions when I needed them. I had five bridesmaids
and a short window for getting ready, so Grace did makeup for all six of
us, while another stylist did everyone’s hair. I had her do my hair though, because I had not used the stylist before (see above control freak reference). At my request, she also did my hair
in a way so that when I let it down by the end of the night, I had
these beautifully loose waves and curls; everyone commented on how nice
my hair looked. As for the makeup, we all
looked GORGEOUS, but still very natural, i.e., we were just prettier
versions of ourselves, as opposed to a very “made up” / unrecognizable
look. My makeup stayed perfect the whole day, no touch up necessary,
other than the lip gloss. Not only did she deliver quality work, but it
was also very easy to work with her – she was always on time, ready to
go (no breaks!), and she has a great, warm demeanor. Thank goodness for

"I had no trouble finding makeup artist I liked but Grace was different. I
LOVED Grace. During the trial she tried various hairstyles based on
pictures I tore of magazines and pictures of my dress. We took pictures
so I didn’t have to choose which style I wanted until the day of the
My wedding party all looked flawless and beautiful
thanks to Grace. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone. I was even
able to add my mom and aunt at the last minute. (The person she was
going to use was flaky and Grace came extra early due to the additions.
makeup was perfect. Other makeup artist never seemed to listen when I
told them I usually don’t wear a lot of makeup ~ and after the session I
felt uncomfortable. It was different with Grace ~ I loved the makeup.
She was so nice and made me and everyone else feel so comfortable. The
only problem is now I want Grace to follow me around so she can apply my
makeup for me every day. ) I was so happy I was able to find Grace."

"I hired Grace to do the makeup for my sister's wedding party and she did
an AWESOME job! Only a selected few of the wedding party had opted to
get their makeup done by a makeup artist, however once they saw the work
she did on my test trial, all of the bridesmaids now wanted their own
makeup done by Grace, including my mother (also the Mother of the bride
:). She was able to work with all skin tone type (from light to dark
She's always on time and comes fully prepared; a true
professional. The wedding turned out great and all the bridesmaids were
VERY HAPPY with their makeup. I highly recommend Grace to anyone who's
looking to look their BEST at any event.
On a side note, I was so pleased with Grace that I hired her to do my sister's makeup for her 30th Birthday bash."
"Grace was recommended by my sister-in-law for my wedding &
engagement shoots, and she did not disappoint. At first, I was
reluctant to trust an artist to get my hair and make up done as I've
come across some horrible stories during my search. However, Grace
definitely exceeded my expectations by not only accommodating to my
requests that the make up be minimal and natural, she even came out to
my place for two trial/engagement shoots on different occassions and
different days. Got fabulous pictures to prove it.
wedding day, my husband was so impressed that he could only mutter the
words 'you look good..' when he first saw me. Of course my maids gave
him an earful for such lukewarm reception! I didn't get the wedding
pictures yet but the makeup and hair looked good from other pictures so
I'm very hopeful.
Grace is talented, patient and displayed the
professionalism I was looking for to help me look my best on one of the
most important days of my life. Grace, you did good! Thank you so much

"I wanted to look hot on my wedding. Not "pretty" or "sweet" or
"virginal". I wanted a Kim Kardashian meets J-lo look (sorry I know KK
is vile, but her makeup is flawless).
Makeup was not something I
wanted to skimp on, because in the hands of someone unskilled you can
look like a hooker. Enter Grace.
Grace was a pleasure to deal
with from the moment I contacted her. Already a plus. I had a tall order
- 6 bridesmaids, 1 junior bridesmaid and me - the bride that wanted a
smoky, sexy, non-raccoon look.
TRIAL: Grace patiently tried a
few different looks in the trial, each one more beautiful than the next.
It was 9am and makeup lasted until my bachelorette party ending at 3am.
My girls each had a different idea of how they wanted to look. Some
wanted a more natural look, some wanted more glam, and some just didn't
know. Grace knew immediately what look would best best for each one, and
made each one of us a more gorgeous version of ourselves.
I honestly never thought I could look so beautiful. And we were done on time! No rushing, either.
For the record - I went airbrush and my girls went traditional. It all lasted and stayed flawless.
Grace is sweet, affordable, professional and reliable - all qualities a stressed out bride appreciates.
Makeup is an art, and Grace is at the top of her game."
