I have had more compliments on how good I look and how my makeup looks much better.”

“I truly enjoyed the makeup experience with Bailey. I was married on May 15, 2004. Bailey and I met prior to the actual wedding day for a makeup orientation. Bailey was extremely professional and punctual on that day. Being that I do not wear makeup she made me feel comfortable with the overall makeup process.

On my wedding day Bailey met me at the church where she did makeup for my bridesmaids and myself. Everything went great and we all looked beautiful. We received many compliments from everyone and I want to thank Bailey for an excellent job. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family. Thank you Bailey for making me beautiful on my wedding day!!!!”
