"Katherine was so wonderful! Not only is she talented as a makeup artist, but she is also so easy going and patient, two qualities you definitely need the day of your wedding. All the girls loved their makeup. Some asked for a smokey eye and others a more natural look. She gave me makeup that provided the perfect coverage while avoiding that "cakey" look and it lasted all day!
I would definitely recommend Lavish Flair!" - Sarah & Mark Malek
"I was referred to Katherine while searching for a makeup artist for my wedding and an amazing referral it was! Katherine was professional, punctual, quick to respond with any inquiries, and most importantly oh so TALENTED! She did my bridal makeup as well as my mother and bridesmaids. Due to the size of my wedding party I needed a second artist, Katherine brought a second artist with her who was also super talented. I felt so beautiful on my big day and my makeup lasted me from morning to night. She was meticulous and gave me the exact look I was going for while keeping us all on schedule! My mother and bridesmaids were also very impressed with Katherine's work and received countless compliments. My one bridesmaid loved her so much she hired her for her own wedding. Her work is amazing, she's super friendly, and her prices are very competitive. I would absolutely refer Katherine (and have) to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their big day!!" - Kate & Les
"Katherine was great!! I can't say enough about her and her talent. She was so easy to work with and did a fabulous job on myself and all of the bridal party! She was stayed on schedule and was responsive through email. She was also flexible with changes, etc..." - Mary Beth & Ryan Kelly
