“I used Kim for my wedding makeup! It was flawless. I have malasma (darks spotty splotchy patches) Kim was able to make my skin tone so even and soft looking. I glowed, it was just beautiful. Kim makes you feel RELAXED!! We were all running late, the hotel was awful; Kim smiles and told jokes, got my mother bottles water. She was excellent during the whole process. Hiring Kim was the only thing that went smoothly. Kim was even flexible enough to do the make-up for person who at the last minute changed their mind and HAD to have Kim do her face so she could look as flawless as the rest of us. Did I mention that this wedding was in the HEAT of AUGUST and I looked great the entire day. No streaking or shining. The pictures came out wonderful. Kim is professional, knowledgeable, punctual, and funny and brings a calm spirit with her.

Bridal Review 11/2012

THIS IS WHY we love what we do. From a bride, whom on her wedding day surprised even me with how absolutely feminine, princess like and gorgeous she came out because we used less makeup and a totally different look last minute!

Mazeltov Shimrit!

” Kim and Maral,

I was waiting until I could actually attach some pictures (the photos are up, but I don’t have the digital negatives yet), but since the short our videographer put together is up, I thought I would send you both an e-mail with the link since it so perfectly highlights not only your amazing work, but how incredibly  pleased I was with my look.

You both did an absolutely amazing job. I don’t think my hair or makeup could have possibly looked better (and everyone – especially Josh – commented as much). Thank you both for all your hard work making me and my ladies look amazing. Should you ever need a glowing recommendation, you know where to find me :)Love, S”
p.s. I’ll send some stills once I have access to them.

I absolutely love Kim from To Make Beautiful! She is an amazing make up artist! I had 6 bridesmaids in the wedding and she made each one of them look amazing in the pictures and in person! My make up was amazing, she was very accommodating and patient with me and even spent extra time before the wedding testing different eyelash extensions and make up colors. Which made for such a perfect combination on the day of my wedding! She’s a true professional with an amazing fun personality! I know I will continue to go to To Make Beautiful for my waxing and make up needs! Thank you Kim!!!

Kim did my makeup for my wedding. My trial was fun as Kim worked with me until everything was just right for the actual day. The day-of results were perfect. She also did make up for my mother & my mother in-law. We all have very different faces and colors, but each of our complexions appeared flawless (which they’re not) in real life and in pictures, and the colors she chose were very complimentary to each of us. Kim is very professional and knowledgeable. I had a completely enjoyable experience with her & my make up. I would recommend her services and expertise to any bride! To Make Beautiful responded with the following comments:
WOW THANK YOU VERY MUCH, what a nice surprise!

Hi Kim!!!

First of all – I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the absolutely stunning job you did both on my makeup as well as my wedding party’s.  I looked flawless all night – even after sweating up a storm from dancing and received compliment after compliment on how natural yet absolutely gorgeous I looked as well as all my girls.  Also – thank you so much for going above an beyond in helping my mom both with her hair and makeup.  For a woman who’s idea of glamming it up means putting a barrette in her hair and calling it a day – her makeup looked flawless and stunning and her hair could not have looked better thanks to you.   My girls couldnt stop raving at how fun you were to have as we all got ready and how absolutely talented you were in doing everyones makeup – from the girls who never wear makeup to the fashionistas.  I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing, fun, talented, and all around fantastic makeup artist to make my wedding day any more perfect :-).  So thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Hi Kim,
I just wanted to send a quick thank you for being so warm and wonderful last night.  You and Melissa and Kristin really put me at ease and I LOVED the results of both hair and makeup.  I feel like such a load has been lifted off my mind today since I found the perfect look for my wedding day and the perfect people for the job.

One more thing checked off the seemingly endless wedding to-do list! 🙂
