Another Beautiful Bride

I did Kimberly Weatherspoon's hair and makeup for her wedding on April 19th, and she left me this glowing review today:

"My experience with Monique Powers was simply tops! I was a busy bride flying in from Washington, DC to get married in LA. Not only was Monique professional, she was timely, accommodating, and super bubbly! She was a much needed comfort during one of life's most stressful events.

At my request, Monique did a great job applying individual eyelash extensions - a 2 hour, yet peaceful process. She even showed up early and stayed late on the day of my wedding in order to transform me into a gorgeous bride on my special day. I received so many compliments from family and friends and my wedding photos were absolutely amazing! To be honest, I feel like I'm a regular looking girl - with Monique's attention to detail and extraordinary level of skill I was transformed! My husband, during out first-look even cried when he saw me! He was absolutely shocked and stunned at how gorgeous I looked.

I'd recommend Monique to anyone who is looking for an elegant, and glamorous look for a great price. Trust me you'll receive plenty of compliments and accolades."

Love Endures Another Year Forever

One year ago today, Lindsey married Jonathan Unger and afterwards she had these encouraging words to say about my services:

"I had the pleasure of having Monique Powers do my makeup for my wedding on February 17, 2013. Monique was amazing at listening to what I wanted, and made me look better than I ever knew I could. Having had previous bad experiences with getting my makeup professionally done at other salons, and looking like a cheap drag queen after these experiences, I was naturally worried about my wedding makeup. Monique was somehow able to cover up all of my flaws, made me look natural and elegant, and made my pictures turn out so beautiful. In addition to the above, I had a morning wedding, and Monique arrived to my hotel 20 minutes earlier than our scheduled appointment time. I love timeliness! I would recommend Monique to any bride-to-be and am so thankful I found her."

Happy Anniversary Lindsey and Jonathan!
