What Brides are Saying

  • Courtney was the best to work with! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to look perfect on their wedding day! I met with her a few times before my wedding day for practice sessions so we could get the perfect look, I am really picky about my eyebrows but she did them better than anyone has! Courtney rocks!!

  • Courtney did the make up for my daughter's wedding and she was fabulous! There were 4 bridesmaids, the bride and two Moms. She arrived on time and worked very efficiently without rushing anyone and took the time to listen to any concerns and to make suggestions. When she finished she asked how we liked it and was willing to make any adjustments, none were needed! The make up was very natural and my daughter looked gorgeous! I also got many compliments I usually am pretty minimal with my make up so this was a new experience for me, Courtney made it easy. She is also very friendly and fun. I would highly recommend her for make up for a wedding or any event.

    • — Cindy in Raleigh, NC
  • I got married in April...outside!! So I was worried about the heat, and it destroying the look of my make-up. The Makeup Team was beyond amazing, Courtney was so easy to talk to and did an excellent job with my face, considering the weather circumstances. I got lots of compliments on how great my make-up looked, and it was all because of her!... She also was very aware of the possible tears that would happen that evening... My MOH cried a lot and her make up didn't look any different! Because of her talent, she has now done my sisters wedding and 3 other friends wedding's as well!... She will forever be my make-up artist!!!

A Bride's Interview

Things to Know

Please take a moment to read this before hiring us.

How long have you been doing what you do and how did you become a makeup artist?

I always loved doing makeup! Throughout my life, everyone I knew wanted me to do their makeup. I was lucky enough to land a job at popular cosmetic counter where my artistry and bridal makeup passion grew.

What type of Brides usually book you?

Brides that usually book us love to feel glamorous! They are fun, passionate, and totally willing to let our artists transform them into a breathtakingly beautiful bride.

Will the same artist that does my trial also do my wedding day makeup?

Yes! It is very important for the artist that you connect with be the one to complete your trial and bridal makeup look. That way they already know you and can absolutely perfect your bridal look.

Do you provide airbrushed makeup?

Yes, we provide airbrushed makeup.

Please do your research on airbrushed makeup before you make a decision. Our talented artists can paint you beautiful with only using their hands! A flawless, well executed makeup application will make you look perfect on your big day. No airbrushing needed ;-).

We love your wedding makeup services and portfolio. Everything sounds great...so, can you tell me what really sets you apart from all the other wedding makeup artists out there?

We have highly trained makeup artists and hairstylists who focus on beauty for all occasions. Our work is flawless, smooth, and timeless. No gimmicks, just perfection. As part of our continuing education policy, we take a class every quarter to update our artistry skills and knowledge. Trends always change so we definitely will continue to take classes and learn whats new in the beauty world.

Our greatest strength is searching out the client's wants and needs. Every woman has a vision, and it is our job to make that vision come to life.

Do you provide hair services?

Yes, we provide hair services as well.

I have a large bridal party, will you have enough artists?

Regarding large bridal parties: We are trained to work well in fast paced environments, multi-tasking, and large bridal parties. With parties of 8 or more or time constraints, hiring a team of artists may work best.

What should I bring with me on the wedding day?

The only thing you need to bring with you on your wedding day is YOU!!

Do you take more than one wedding per day?

Currently, we only book one wedding, per artist, during peak season.

What happens if I don’t know what look I want before I book?

If you are unsure of the look you want, we have special questions we ask to help determine your specialized look. Otherwise, we have plenty of images for you to help you choose your desired look.

Do you accept credit cards? Checks?

Currently we only accept credit cards and cash.

We have a couple more questions before getting started...can I contact you to discuss this further?

Of course! Please feel free to contact The Makeup Team to discuss your event. We can’t wait to meet you. And congratulations on your engagement.

This sounds exactly like what I've been looking for. What happens next to start the process?

Let’s go ahead and set up your consultation so you can fall in love with your bridal look!
