I’m using Emily of Cheekadee (http://www.cheekadee.com/).  I’ve heard great things about her and I’m having my trial on Sunday, so hopefully that goes well!

Both Mrs. Bruschetta and I also used Emily of Cheekadee — she is wonderful and very reasonably priced!

@jayleah: I’ll definitely let you know how it goes!

 

@cupcake: After I posted, I remembered that you and Mrs. Bruschetta both used her and that was one of the reasons I decided to go with her, in addition to a great recommendation from my DOC.  🙂

I had my trial yesterday and Emily was great!  She really listened to what I was looking for and the makeup still looked good at the end of the day.  And she’s really nice and friendly, too!  I would definitely recommend her.  🙂

I highly recommend Aleksandra! She was by far the most budget-friendly, but more importantly, she did an amazing job at my wedding. Make up was exactly what I wanted, she was professional, friendly, efficient. I have nothing bad to say. I’ve posted a review about her that you can look up, with photos.

How do you look up the review? I would love to see it! I have actually done make up for a couple of weddings and am EXTREMELY nervous about having someone do mine. I would like to find someone that I trust so that I don’t have to worry about doing my own.

Make Up by Aleksandra I am so happy to have found Aleksandra. As an Asian bride with a multi-racial bridal party on a budget, I was worried about finding a make up artist who was an expert in doing all kinds of make up. Thank God I found Aleksandra! She is absolutely skilled in what she does. My make up was exactly what I wanted, and she also transformed all of my bridesmaids and my mother into a beautiful goddess. She uses quality make up that lasted all day and also felt natural on my skin, as I normally don’t wear foundation. She is also very efficient, spending no more than 30 minutes to achieve perfection on each face. She was punctual, responsive to my e-mails and professional.

In addition, she is extremely friendly and sweet, and willing to listen to what her clients want. For instance, I wanted super smokey eyes, which she delivered beautifully.

Her fees were $50 per person for non-brides, and $75 for the bride, which included a trial at her studio in Old City Philadelphia.
