My first experience with Kari was for my boudoir pictures in 2012. She did an amazing job! I used her for my bridal portraits and wedding day makeup that same year. Since then, she has performed works of art on my face with her amazing makeup skills every year. I go to her for family picture makeup, Halloween makeup, company parties… Anything that I think requires her phenomenal skill level. She is, hands down, the best there is.

Kari did such an amazing job with my bridal makeup. From the trial run to the wedding day, she was flexible, knowledgeable and fun. She worked with me to achieve the perfect look to go along with my dress, location and lifestyle (and stand up in the Houston humidity!), and all in all, she was simply was a blast to have around. I’d recommend Kari to ANY future bride in a heartbeat!

I wish Kari would come over and do my make up every morning! My skin looked flawless, my eyelashes stayed on, and my eyes looked beautiful in all the pictures! She knows how to accentuate your facial features for a naturally beautiful look!

On your wedding day, you envision looking your very best. After months of planning and cross-checking every last detail, you should be confident that your bridal look will be flawless. I have had the immense pleasure of knowing Kari for several years, so when I was planning my Texas wedding from out of state, I had no reservations that Kari, one of the very best makeup artists in Dallas/Fort Worth, was the obvious choice to perfect my bridal look. Kari’s magnetic personality has the ability to make even the most nervous bride at ease, but it is Kari’s highly skilled artistic ability, that makes her a true expert. I wholeheartedly recommend Kari for any wedding, special occasion or photo shoot. Kari simply does not disappoint.

Kari was my makeup artist for my wedding on July 2, 2011. She did makeup not only for myself, but also my mom, my soon to be mother-in-law, and my soon to be sister-in-law. We all had a great experience with her. She was fun and very personable, and she really focused on what each of us wanted from our makeup that day. I wanted a classic wedding look with just a little bit of focus on making my eyes pop (my husband’s favorite feature of mine!) and she created a beautiful smoky look that didn’t overpower the rest of my face or my dress. Her versatility showed when she completed the rest of the ladies. We all wanted something different, a different look or a different feature of our face highlighted, and she made everyone look beautiful. No one had the same thing done, but everyone looked well put together and the makeup looked absolutely fantastic in pictures. It lasted well through all of the outdoor pictures taken after the ceremony and even through all of the dancing. By 11pm it still looked just about the same as it did that afternoon. I was extremely pleased in how everyone’s makeup turned out. No one looked overly done up and everyone got exactly what they were asking for. I would definitely recommend Kari as a make up artist for anyone else in the future and would love to work with her again if the occasion were to arise.”

I felt like an Old-Hollywood movie star and got so many compliments. It was the perfect way to tie together my entire look with the style of my dress and accessories. I truly felt like I looked the best I possibly could on my big day, which is what every bride wants. I am very picky when it comes to other people doing my makeup, and This was the first time I really loved a makeup application that I didn’t do myself.

Kari, I cannot thank you enough for the amazing work you did for me on my bridal photos and my wedding.  Not only were you able to accommodate me and make me look my absolute best, you did such a fanastic job on all of my bridesmaids as well.  Kari you really listened to me when we discussed the look I wanted and you did exactly what I had envisioned how I would look on my wedding day.  Not only are you a great makeup artist, but you are also so kind and sweet and made me feel so calm on my big day.  I had no worries after I had met with you and knew you were the one for me.  The makeup looked flawless and I cannot wait to work with you on any other future endevours.  Thank you again for such an amazing experience.

My wedding makeup experience with Kari was absolutely perfect. Kari listened to what I wanted and made the entire experience fun and stress-free. She did a stunning natural look for my bridal portraits and went more ‘glamourous’ for my wedding day. Both looks were absolutely flawless! I recommend Kari to any bride (or bridal party) in the DFW area.

Ashley Simmons

Kari is the absolute best! I remember immediately feeling comfortable at my trial session and having an absolute blast!  I showed her a couple of pictures of what I had in mind – and it turned out even better! I remember running home to wash my face before my fiance got home, because I didn’t want him to know it was possible for me to look that good before our big day! 🙂

My wedding day went perfect! Kari did my makeup just as she had before, and she made my sisters look beautiful as well!

She also did my makeup for nursing school graduation, which was so fun! I love catching up with Kari and getting dolled up! I would highly recommend her to anyone, and can’t wait for my next session!

On top of being a joy to be around, Kari is seriously a true artist. She always knows how to capture my crazy vision. Whether it’s shimmer or bold (my faves!), Kari creates something new and gorgeous every single time. Highly highly recommend her fabulousness.

I was so nervous about having my make up done for my wedding since I don’t really wear that much make up and I have never had airbrush done before. I didn’t want it to look like it was caked on or over done, but Kari showed me so many pictures and after my trial run I couldn’t believe how amazing I looked. I still looked like me but just a better, bolder version. She did a phenomenal job and my mother and mother-in-law also had their make up done for the big day and they absolutely loved it too. I would highly recommend Kari for any wedding, bridal portraits or any special occasions where you want to look and feel your best! Thank you Kari for helping me look beautiful on my big day!

Over the past several years I have worked with Kari more times than I can count.  As a fellow co-worker and employee she has an intangible talent and a vision I only wish I had.   The time, energy, and dedication to her craft is what makes Kari such a special and talented artist. Every person that sits in her chair will walk away feeling and looking their very best and are never disappointed!

Ann Kleier

Former Manager and Coworker

Kari was my makeup artist for my bridal portraits and wedding day, and I could not have been happier with the way my makeup looked. She was professional, and really listened to what I wanted my makeup look like for my wedding: to look like myself. She had great suggestions and ideas that I hadn’t even considered that ended up looking beautiful and classy. Each of my bridesmaids looked elegant and polished thanks to Kari’s expertise. I would wholeheartedly recommend her for any special occasion. She does fantastic, professional work that will not disappoint.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Kari is a wonderful makeup artist, and I’m so glad I chose her. Not only is she talented, but she really listens as you tell her how you want to look. She put me at ease which was something I definitely needed on my wedding day. Even after being all made up, I still looked like me (just more glamorous.)  My bridesmaids were raving about their makeup as well. I can’t wait to have another occasion for Kari to work her magic on me
