I need your help….
I just got engaged and it’s time to get the ball rolling… I have already booked the venue and covered all the major vendors, now I need a makeup artist.
Makeup is needed not only for myself but for my 4 bridesmaids, my mom & future mother-in law – the artist will need to travel to our location (likely a hotel near our venue site).
ANY IDEAS??? I’m welcome to any and ALLLL.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!

I actually just booked Nam Vo for my wedding in April. I had my trial a couple of weeks ago — I generally don’t use too much makeup and I am ALWAYS so incredibly nervous to get my makeup done (since majority of the time that I do, the artist overdoes it and I don’t feel like myself).
The trial went so smoothly – Nam was able to find a look that matched my style and dress. Nam does travel so that shouldn’t be an issue, you should check her out!

Mrs. Firefly and i and a few other Bees used Laura Nadeau. she is simply amazing. she just did my sister-in-law’s wedding too and did all bridesmaids, both MOB and MOG and grandmas too! Laura and her assistant came up to the wedding site (1 hr 45 min outside the city).
and here’s her wiki with links to some posts about her:

Thank you all for your feedback!!!
I had my consultation with Nam today and simply adored her! She did such a great job, I couldn’t say no! She was charging slightly higher than what I had originally budgeted for, however, I couldn’t help myself.
She is taking care of my entire bridal party and is willing to travel I’m sooooo excited.

I am so glad I came across this message board. I am very new to the Wedding Bee and was on a mission to find a makeup artist for my big day – THANK YOU SO MUCH for recommending Nam. You are absolutely right! She is great. I had my trial with her yesterday (I am getting married in May of this year!! (— only 3 more months to go!!!)…. and she was such an absolute pleasure to work with. She will be taking care of my bridal party as well AND I’m thinking of having her doll up my mom and future-mother-in-law………

Another rave for Laura Nadeau! I found her here on Weddingbee and I couldn’t have been happier with my makeup on my wedding day. My best friend just got engaged and the first thing she said was "do you think we can get Laura to come to Cape Cod????". She did makeup for my bridal party, mom, aunt and stepmother…everyone looked different and everyone was thrilled! She’s a true Pro.!
