Alana did such an amazing job for our wedding. I was definitely stressed about my hair and make up for the wedding because it was raining and it ended up being a hot day - Alana dealt with my craziness with grace & made sure that everyone looked absolutely gorgeous on the day of through the full day. I had a mix of bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids & moms on the day of and she accommodated the most glam to the least glam and everyone in between. I've been in a lot of weddings and I've never seen someone able to accommodate so many different looks & so beautifully. Everyone's make up looked flawless from the minute they were finished through the rain, 3 hours of a pictures, a ceremony, hours of dancing and then a bonfire after party. She also stopped by the venue right before the ceremony for touch ups (not that I even needed them) just to ease my concern. On top of being amazing at what she does, she's also a beautiful person who had such a calming presence throughout the whole process. I can't thank her enough & would recommend her to anyone needing make up services!

Alana and Katie Kelly hair were my "getting pretty" team for my September wedding and oh my goodness I could not have chosen a better team. Alana is *so* incredible. I don't usually wear much makeup, but she nailed the "soft glam" look she prides herself on - I looked like me, only much prettier. She even kept my freckles visible! (They are an integral part of my face!). She also managed to calm down the very stressed mums and make them feel gorgeous, and made my team of bridespeople feel confident and beautiful. Not only is she super talented, but she is absolutely lovely. Exactly the sort of calming energy you want around on your wedding day. If you want to feel prettier than you have ever felt, hire her for your wedding. You absolutely won't regret it.

Alana is amazing! She is friendly and truly passionate about what she does. She wants everyone to go out and feel like the best version on themselves, which is exactly how my bridal party and I felt on my wedding day. Her make-up style is natural and classic, just what you'd want as a bride. If I could do it all over again, I would hire Alana again in a heartbeat! Thank you Alana for making me feel extra gorgeous on the biggest day of my life.

Alana is perfection! Not only is she a wonderful, personable, fun and kind person, she is incredibly talented at her craft. I wanted a make-up artist who could enhance my natural features and not make me up to look like someone else. She completely nailed it. She also easily accommodated 2 trials as I had changed my mind on a few things. She also did the make-up for 4 other women in my wedding party - all of them loved her and looked AMAZING. I would recommend Alana to anyone looking to feel their best on their special day. Book her now before she isn't available! Thank you, Alana!!

Alana was an absolute joy to work with for my wedding. We got married on July 19th and it was BLAZING hot. Between the heat and the humidity from a random sunshower an hour before our outdoor ceremony was to start, I was SURE I'd look a sweaty mess by the time I walked down the aisle. Boy, was I wrong. But let me back up. Alana arrived promptly and immediately began her set up. We had worked out the order of the bridesmaids ahead of time, and she got right to work. She worked with each girl to find the best look for their skin and complexion. Every single one of the girls looked beautiful. When it came time for me, I asked Alana if she could up slightly from our trial. She took my request in stride and executed it flawlessly. She constantly reassured me that I would NOT look sweaty in photos, and touched me up once more before she left. Alana was 100% right. I could feel the heat hanging in the air, yet my face looked absolutely flawless. My husband and guests remarked multiple times how amazed they were that I looked like I was not the least bit bothered by the heat. And my photos proved it. Alana is a true miracle worker, a badass woman, and a kind-hearted soul. If I was financially able to, I'd hire Alana as my private make-up artist, so that I could feel as glamorous and gorgeous going to Target as I did on my wedding day. Thank you times one million for being such a crucial part of my wedding day.

Alana was perfect. I’m not super into makeup and don’t wear much often, so I wanted to feel natural and like myself while also highlighting my best features. Alana did just that. I felt so beautiful and taken care of. On top of her excellent work, Alana is so easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. She is also honest which I really appreciate! Reach out to her ASAP - she books out far in advance!

Alana is SO TALENTED and a complete pleasure to work with. I'm a mascara-and-chapstick girl, but I knew that I wanted to look like my best self on my wedding day in make-up that would photograph beautifully and last all night. Alana complete overdelivered on all counts. She did such a perfect job of listening to what I had in mind, creating a look that I completely loved, and also tailoring her work to the style and comfort level of my 6 bridesmaids and both moms, ranging in age from 11 to 72. She was organized, punctual, sweet and accommodating all day, and we truly enjoyed spending the morning with her. I was totally blown away by how she did my make-up, even after completing a trial that I loved. My wedding-day make-up made me feel prettier than I ever have in my life, and my overly-critical self finds all of the pictures to be stunning! My face looked EXACTLY as perfect when I took my make-up off at 2 AM as it did when she last touched it up, in spite of a very long day, a warm dress, and lots of dancing. Amazing. I couldn't have been happier with Alana. <3
