What people are saying

Beauty and the Blush did my wedding hair and makeup and those of my bridesmaids (8 people in total) on September 29. Vanessa is very responsive both through email and via text and was very accommodating in making changes that I asked for ( for a change in time, for adding some additional time for one of the stylists to stay for touchups). The stylists we worked with were both wonderful. Donna took care of some of my bridesmaids and their hairstyles were beautiful and more importantly, flattering to each woman. Erica did my hair and makeup and I absolutely loved her-she was also the stylist who stayed for touch ups and stayed with me as I got my photographs done before the wedding- I felt like I had another friend with me during the experience. Then, right before the ceremony, she actually took one of my favorite pictures of the night of me that she was kind enough to send along. The prices are standard for wedding hair and makeup and they work very well with you . Thank you!


Vanessa and her team were incredible to work with from our initial inquiry until the wedding day. Vanessa was always immediately responsive and available to answer any questions that I had throughout the process and created a wonderful and stress free experience for me. Siomara (hair) and Jacqui (makeup) were both fantastic! They traveled to my parents home for the trial and did a fabulous job. I was nervous about professional hair and makeup because I wanted to make sure I still looked like myself on my wedding day. Siomara and Jacqui listened and were able to create the exact look I wanted. On my wedding day, they were able to replicate it exactly in addition to taking care of my mom's hair and makeup and we were both thrilled with the results. Everything lasted perfectly through the full day (including several hours of taking photos outside in pretty extreme heat/humidity- and believe me- my hair and makeup does not normally hold up at all in that kind of weather- these ladies truly worked magic!) Vanessa and her team are truly a class act and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for the best hair and makeup experience you can get for your wedding!


Loved the stylist I was given!!! She was so sweet, and we definitely clicked! It was great! I will use your business again for my next occasion! Thank you so so so much !!


Planning your wedding can be daunting and it's hard to know who will be the right vendors for you on your wedding day. I chose Beauty and the Blush and am so happy with their work! Vanessa worked wonders with the makeup brush and Angela created princess-worthy hairstyles. They were such a delight and we had a good time talking as we prepared for my wedding day. The makeup photographed beautifully and they created both glamorous and natural looks that suited each bridesmaid well. I'm so grateful because they made us look and feel like princesses for the day! In addition to being talented, they are professional, on-time, and easy to work with. They respond quickly to emails and are very accommodating. I definitely recommend Beauty and the Blush and would use them again in the future.


Vanessa was fantastic! She is the only makeup artist that I had a trial with, and I knew instantly that I didn't have to look any further. She is so personable and makes you feel comfortable. She is super knowledgeable and professional, and really knows the type of makeup to use with your skin type and eye color. I had no idea what I wanted to do for my makeup, but she worked her magic and it looked amazing. On the wedding day, Vanessa and Erica did makeup for 8 girls (bride, 2 moms, and 5 bridesmaids). They really took the time to do what the girls wanted, and made suggestions based on their experience. They arrived on time, worked quickly, and finished earlier than I expected. It was such a pleasant experience, and everyone looked stunning. I would highly recommend Vanessa for anyone who wants an experienced and quality makeup artist :)


Vanessa was so lovely to work with-- she answered all of my questions, responded promptly, and was super flexible when scheduling a trial. I felt like she truly listened to my vision for myself but still offered helpful suggestions to achieve a spectacular final look. She made me and all of the ladies in my bridal party look and feel amazing, and my make up looked just as good by the end of the night as it did when she finished at 11am. I should mention: she also braved a snow storm to get to my hotel at 6:30am (and was still on time!). Loved working with Vanessa and would definitely recommend her to any bride!
