Chelsey Reynolds

Kendra did my make up on Saturday. She did a beautiful job, I loved it!!! Everyone I came in contact with that day or saw pictures, loved it also. Kendra is really nice, easy to talk to, and has good suggestions. Her place is really nice and welcoming. Am from out of town, and waited until last minute to look where to have my makeup done. I was lucky enough Kendra was able to squeeze me in to her schedule. I recommend you call and book your appointment, for you won’t miss her amazing work.

Brooke Barber

Kendra was absolutely amazing🖤😍She was not only able to squeeze both my daughters in her busy schedule, but she was the sweetest person ever! She actually cared about her work, and most importantly, her clients.My daughters had their dance recital and we all know how much young children (5 and 7years olds) move around. She did an incredible job!!!I will most certainly be returning for my daughters recitals every year. In fact, I'm going to her for my wedding makeup needs.I don't normally recommend places to anyone actually, but this adorable little studio is so worth talking about.

Melissa Myers

Used my birthday gift card on a facial today with an added on under eye treatment. Super good and relaxing facial. Kendra does a wonderful job, I will definitely be going back Amazing results.

Emily Robinson

Kendra did my make-up for a wedding I was standing in. I am 57 years old and never wear make-up except for special occasions, never have. I hate the way it feels on my face. When she was finished, I swear that 15 years had been taken away!! I had the airbrush done and it felt great. Didn't bother me at all. Also wore fake eyelashes for the first time! Made me feel closer in age to the rest of the girls 😁 Thank you Kendra for making me look and feel beautiful ❤️

Michelle Clarey

Not only is she amazing at what she does, but she is such a sweetheart! I am a blonde with basically clear eyelashes and she tinted and lifted them! They look AMAZING!!!!!! I would recommend her over and over again!!!!!!

Kendra was such a pleasure to work with, she did such a fantastic job doing my make-up. She is sweet, kind, genuine, and truly an artist. Thank you so much! Excited to work together again in the future... can’t wait to see the pictures and show off how great of a job you did! Thank you again.

Marlette Marie

Kendra is amazing! I am clueless about makeup and hardly ever wear anything on my face. Kendra did two trials with me to make sure that I would be comfortable in my makeup for my wedding day! She helped me feel beautiful on my wedding day and still feel like me, without feeling like I had a ton of makeup on. All of the girls in my wedding that got their makeup done were so happy with the final results and we all have Kendra to thank for that!
