"Shawn is a skilled and professional make-up artist. I’ve known Shawn for several years, and I have witnessed her creative, artistic eye on many occasions. When she offered to be my make-up artist for my wedding in October 2012, I was thrilled. I was beyond happy with her work, and she definitely applied her artistic talent. Shawn works within your comfort level, yet also suggests new ideas to highlight your features. Prior to my wedding, Shawn offered me a make-up trial. I loved the “look,” and a few customers even stopped to mention how nicely done it was. To complement her beautiful make-up skills, Shawn is also knowledgeable about skin care, as a trained Bobbi Brown make-up artist. At the trial, Shawn offered me insight about my skin and suggested a skin care routine to make my skin perfectly moisturized before my wedding. I adored my make-up on my wedding and owed all of my complements to Shawn! My skin truly looked flawless throughout the day, and only applied a lipstick once following pictures. Shawn is a pleasure to be with, which enhances her overall professionalism and skills. I would heartily recommend Shawn to anyone looking for a make-up artist for a special occasion, seeking make-up advice, or simply wanting a fresh look!"

Testimonials From My Clients:
"I cannot say enough great things about Shawn!! She is extremely talented, prompt, flexible, understanding, and a sweet person to have around on your wedding day. Shawn did the wedding make-up for my wedding on September 1, 2013. Prior to the wedding date, I had a make-up trail where Shawn listened to my make-up ideas and gave me additional suggestions. During the trial, her expertise was obvious as we worked together to create my perfect wedding day look. Throughout the wedding planning process, Shawn was always very professional and responsive to all emails. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early and kept everyone's appointment on schedule. Shawn was super attentive, kept me calm, and made sure my make-up looked exactly as I planned. She thought about all angles and used makeup that would photograph well and last all day. Even though it rained and became super humid on my wedding day, my make-up remained flawless all day! I look back at photos from my wedding day and I am still so happy with my make-up!!"-Joelle P.
"I had the fortune of working with Shawn for my October 27, 2012 wedding. She was recommended through a mutual friend, and when I found out she used Bobbi Brown products, I was all the more excited. Selecting a makeup artist was one of the steps in the planning process I worried about most. After one failed trial session with another artist, I was hesitant but excited to meet with Shawn. I was able to show her pictures and describe my look easily, and her knowledge and expertise were apparent immediately. Shawn even came for a second trial to adjust a few things that I had liked on another bride, but did not work with me. She was able to magnify my best features and make me feel more beautiful than I have ever felt. The day of the wedding she was so organized, and we were able to have all six of my bridesmaids, my mother, and my husband’s mother all get their makeup done in addition to my own. For an early afternoon wedding, this was quite a feat! Shawn was there extra early and gave each woman individual attention to make them feel and look their very best. I was absolutely thrilled with the job she did on them and on me. I truly felt radiant from the inside out, and she showed that off with my makeup. It lasted all day, and I received so many compliments. She is extremely talented and sweet, and would be a wonderful party of any bride’s wedding day!"

"Shawn did my make-up on my wedding day and I couldn't say more great things about the work that she did. She did a full trial for me a few months before the wedding where were experimented with a few different looks. She wrote everything down that we decided on in detail, and also took pictures so that she knew exactly what I wanted on the big day. A few weeks before the wedding, I went back for a quick trial, where she made sure that all of the shades still matched my skin tone, and I was still very happy with the final look. On the morning of the wedding, Shawn took her time to make sure everything was just perfect. I was absolutely blown away by how everything came together. I'm not used to wearing a lot of make-up, and Shawn made mine look natural but added some touches to make it special for my wedding, for example, just highlighting the eyes which I thought looked amazing. I can't even say how many comments I received not only that day, but when I others saw pictures after the wedding about how beautiful my make-up was. Shawn is incredibly talented, and really listens to your ideas and then makes it all come together. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else with my wedding day make-up. She is the BEST!!!"
"I can't say enough about how pleased i was to have shawn do my make-up on my wedding day. she was friendly and reliable, very reasonably priced, and fun to have around with my girlfriends while we were all getting ready. but all that aside, shawn just did an amazing job. she worked with me and the dress and hairstyle that i had chosen to find a look that epitomized my personality as well as the feel that we hoped our celebration would have. shawn not only knew what colors would work best for me, but also what had staying power, what would show best in photographs, and what would accentuate my positives and downplay my not-so-greats. but to me, one of the best things that shawn gave me was the ability to just enjoy my day - a very, very long day - without ever having to worry about re-applying or cleaning up makeup that had run. at 3am - after some sun, many tears, and a few cocktails - my make-up looked as good as new. i still don't know how she did it. but every time i look at our beautiful wedding photos i am more and more thankful that it was shawn who worked with me that day."

"When I was planning my wedding in July of 2011, I knew that I wanted to have beautiful but natural looking makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. After meeting Shawn, and seeing her work with Bobbi Brown makeup, I knew that she would be able to help me create this image. Her sense of style and beauty reflects her inner personality. She was easy to work with and she couldn't have been sweeter to my whole bridal party. I remember how she suggested that we find a quiet and relaxing place to do the makeup on the day of the wedding. This was great advice and it helped set the tone for a great day. She helped me stay calm and offered advice and wisdom from her own wedding. Shawn helped make my wedding extra special and memorable. Thanks to Shawn, everyone looked stunning! I am so grateful to Shawn for creating lasting memories and beautiful photos of one of the best days of my life! "
