Gracia is a very talented, personable & professional makeup artist. I came across her website when I was researching wedding makeup looks. When I saw pictures of Gracia's work I knew I wanted to work with her. From the moment I contacted her she was always pleasant and respectful. She always answered my e-mails and calls promptly and follow up seemed like a breeze. When I set up my trial she was flexible with my schedule and even more conveniently she came to me for our trial appointment which was about an hour drive from where she lived. The trial went smooth and she was able to capture the natural, fresh & sophisticated look that I wanted. I knew immediately that I wanted to book her for my wedding day and it gave me peace of mind that she was professional, reliable and responsible considering that my experience with her worked our without a hitch. On my wedding day she arrived early and was fully prepared with all her supplies. Her personable personality helped me calm my nerves and my nervousness turned into excitement within minutes. She remembered the exact color combinations from our trial and I was beyond happy about my wedding day makeup. I felt so glamorous and beautiful because the makeup was absolutely stunning. Most importantly I still looked like me since she was able to capture my style and my personality in my wedding day look. I received so many compliments that day and my husband kept telling me how beautiful I looked. The makeup lasted until the end of the night after numerous kisses on the cheek and a couple of tearful moments. The pictures turned out great and most importantly I have many wonderful memories about my wedding journey and my wedding day. Thank you Gracia for making it special every step of the way. Best wishes to you and I hope that many other brides will be fortunate enough to work with you.
All the Best,Christine
Gracia was great to work with. She did make-up for me, my mom and 4 of my bridesmaids. We all couldn't have been happier with her work! I met Gracia for a trial few months before my wedding. It was great to see different looks with make-up. Together we agreed on what looked best, so on the day of the wedding all I had to do was relax and be pampered! Because we took pictures before our ceremony, we had to start getting ready really early. Gracia was so accommodating. I was really nervous that our make-up wouldn't last through out the day, but it did. Our make-up still looked perfect at the end of the night! I absolutely loved my make-up. The styling was perfect with my dress and it really helped to complete my look. Gracia was so easy to work with. She helped calm my nerves during the hustle and bustle of 7 ladies getting ready in one room! My mom was hesitant to get her make-up done initially, since she is not really a make-up person. I convinced her to do it and she was so happy she did. My mom looked beautiful and not overdone thanks to Gracia.Jen
I got married last August and was extremely hesitant to have my make up done for my wedding. Coming from a performance and makeup background myself I wasnt sure if anyone would be able to make me feel and look like myself on my wedding day. I had a trial done before I met Gracia and it confirmed my fears of having some one else do my make up for that very special day. I was talking to my cousin about it and she said "I know some one who does beautiful work". So I gave it one more shot and I'm so glad I did. Gracia was amazing, she was so sweet and professional. After our trial I knew I had made the right choice she did my make up just the way I would have done it. She made me look and feel like a princess.Jessica
Gracia is fantastic! The first time she did my makeup was for my brother & sister in law's wedding. I absolutely loved her and her work so it was a no brainer for me to ask her to be my makeup artist for my wedding day last September. During my makeup trial, I showed her a picture of the look I was trying to achieve. She mastered it and then even had suggestions on how to make it look even better given my complexion. After my trial, I attended a friend's wedding and received several compliments on how amazing my makeup looked without telling anyone that I had my makeup professionally done. I knew I had made the right decision with booking Gracia, but it's nice to receive compliments anyway! The products that Gracia uses are extremely light and non-greasy so you do not feel like your face is caked on with makeup. The best part about it is that everything lasts so long! On my wedding night, the only thing I had to touch up and re-apply was lipstick/gloss. Everything else looked exactly as it did at 1pm that afternoon. Everyone I know who has gotten their makeup done by Gracia (including my entire wedding party) has had nothing but wonderful things to say about her/her work. If you're looking for an amazing and talented make-up artist, you will not be disappointed with Gracia!Amy P
I entrusted Gracia to do my make-up on my wedding day and I couldn't be happier with this decision. My make-up looked so natural and stood out in photographs from morning to night. Gracia's calm, professional demeanor was also very appreciated. I simply looked and felt my best on the day that mattered the most. Thank you Gracia!Jessica Goldenberg
