Olivia is a gem. She's as sweet as they come, extremely professional and talented, and she LISTENS. She did wedding makeup for myself and my bridesmaids, and I could not have been happier with my makeup on one of the most memorable days of my life.
It is clear that it is very important to her that your vision is realized, and she is so great at communicating and figuring out what you want, even if you're having trouble putting it into words. When she is done, you will look and feel beautiful, and you will still look like yourself. She also went above and beyond, working hard to find an additional artist after I panicked because we had such a large group that needed makeup. You cannot go wrong with booking Olivia!
I did about 8 makeup trials for my wedding and mostly all of them did an okay job but I wasn't getting exactly what I was envisioning. Olivia was the last trial and I told her what I wanted and showed her my Pinterest board pics for makeup ideas. She looked at what I wanted and literally did exactly that. I was so excited and so lucky to have found her. She is worth every penny and more. I had so many compliments about my makeup - even from guys at my wedding. I felt amazing. About a year after the wedding, I asked her if she would give me makeup lessons and so we met up for that too. Since then my skills have improved dramatically. I'm still not as good as her and probably never will be but I definitely feel confident about my makeup now. I highly recommend her.
I've known Olivia since about June of 2016 (from EWC) and I knew she was a trained MUA so as soon as I got engaged, I asked her for a trial.
I was blown away! Not only did she pay close attention to what I was looking to achieve, but she also gave me great tips and pointers. I ended up loving my trial makeup but wanted a few small changes for the big day. She was extremely welcoming of my points and kept on telling me that all she wanted was for me to be happy.
When my wedding day rolled around, she arrive on time and with the most cheery disposition and positive attitude.
She expertly made her way through my bridal party, starting with my MIL and mother. Both are in their 60s and the makeup she did on them was flawless. They looked radiant, and not overdone (which is quite tricky to achieve especially on older women). Both ladies LOVED their makeup.
My bridesmaids also looked absolutely stunning, and Olivia even did a little bit of makeup on my 5yr old flower girl. Each time, she worked with each girls complexion and colouring to compliment their own look.
When she finally got to me, she was patient, caring, and just a dream to work with. She didn't allow me to see the work in progress because she wanted me to be surprised. Let me tell you that when she gave me the mirror for final ok, I was so crazy in love happy!!!! (if I could swear to convey how happy I was with my makeup I would). I looked natural, radiant, effortless - even the hubs complimented on the makeup!
All in all, Olivia is amazing. I will definitely come to her over and over again, and keep on recommending her to other women.
Brides- do yourself a favor and CALL OLIVIA!!!!!!
PS: she has a GREAT personality and will quickly become your friend :) Love you O!
I have had the pleasure of having my makeup done on many occasions by Olivia and each and every time has been exceptional. She has done my makeup for events as important as my wedding & maternity photos to having my makeup done just for a night out. She is not only incredibly talented, but also a sweet and genuine person. Olivia takes the time to find out what you are looking for for your special occasion and also makes recommendations per her professional judgement. She has always made me feel comfortable and confident with her plan for my makeup. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Olivia did the makeup for my entire wedding party. She captured exactly the look I was after. I felt amazing for my big day, and all of my bridesmaids looked incredible. She has an excellent eye for detail and is a pro at creating looks that will photograph flawlessly, but also look great in person. Her calm demeanor and professionalism is a beam of calm light in what can be a chaotic day. I would choose her again and again.
