Kennedy was AMAZING. I went to her last minute after a not so great trial with another artist, and she found a way to accommodate my sisters and me. I’m not great about having my makeup professionally done because I’ve been doing my makeup myself for over a decade and it never looks quite right when someone else does it. But Kennedy was able to give me the exact look that I wanted. I still looked and felt like me but significantly better! On my wedding day, my makeup felt flawless from 10:30am through the late night reception and went perfectly with both my outfits for the night. She’s great at dealing with all skin tones and she’s extremely kind and professional. I only wish she could do my makeup every day. I hope next time I need (or now want) my makeup professionally done, she’s available!
Kennedy was a joy to work with. Despite the chaos of several women getting ready in one house, plus a photographer and videographer, she kept her composure the whole time :) That to me is the definition of a true professional. Not only did she get everyone ready in time, we had time to spare which allowed us to enjoy the day. Her prices were reasonable...and when you consider the peace of mind you get from hiring someone who’s going to show up on time and do exceptional work, it’s well worth the expense. As a bride, you have a million things to worry about on your day, when you hire Kennedy, your make up won’t be one of them.
As a Black woman with a diverse wedding party I wanted to make sure that she would be able to make us all look our best, so from the start I was looking for makeup artists who showcased different skin tones in their online portfolios. Kennedy was wonderful to work with. She was incredibly friendly during my trial and was able to guide me in color choices and the look since I do not have much makeup knowledge. She communicated effectively throughout the contract-signing and preparation stage with email reminders and a schedule for my bridal party’s makeup times. On the day of, she did makeup for me, my four bridesmaids, and both mothers at the venue. Everyone looked great. I definitely recommend!
Kennedy stepped in the week before my wedding when my original makeup artist was unable to attend. She saved my wedding! She was very responsive, prompt, and professional. She did the makeup for 5 people in my wedding, including mothers of the bride and groom. Everyone looked flawless! She is obviously experienced with many different skin types and ages. I would highly recommend!”
Kennedy was very professional and we enjoyed her warm and kind personality as she did our makeup. We all loved our looks that were tailored to the unique characteristics of every one in the bridal party. She also answered our beauty questions that we had for her. I definitely recommend her as a skilled and talented makeup artist that will make you feel beautiful on your special day!
Kennedy did a total of 9 faces with the same amount of quality and effort as she did mine. I still don’t know how she finished all of us an hour before ceremony time. We had to pay a travel fee that was out of her normal rate simply because she was relocated for the summer, but it was worth it. Kennedy is so professional and wise beyond her years! I know nothing about makeup and what we loved most was her ability to match foundations and what not to the diverse skin tones of my wedding party. If you’re in search of an artist who can do the fairest of skin tones to women of color, Kennedy Shae’ is for you!
