Microblading is a form of semi-permanent makeup that provides the appearance of simulated hair using ultra fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. The technique is performed by depositing the individual, crisp hair-like strokes of pigment superficially in the upper region of the dermis, creating a natural looking brow line. {Learn more}

erin and greg“I really can’t say enough great things about Julie! I’ll start from the beginning–I met her initially at a bridal expo with a friend (and bride) of mine. As soon as I contacted Julie afterwards she immediately got back to me and I was able to schedule a makeup trial with her! Julie is so easy going and time oriented that she actually did mine and my friends trial together-it was so much fun and I definitely recommend!!(be sure to make plans the day/night of your trial because you’re going to look amaazing!!! Julie not only does makeup she does airbrush and lashes (which I wish she could do for me on the daily!). At the trial Julie was very professional and not only listened to the type of look I was going for, but what colors would compliment my skin as well. She has a variety of awesome makeup and it was fun to try different shades of colors, etc.

Naturally, I booked Julie to do my makeup for my engagement pictures and I loooved it. I told her I wanted a “natural” look and that’s exactly what she did! My skin looked flawless and my eye makeup was amazing with a light brownish smokey eye (plus lashes because I’m obessed!) Julie even did my makeup for my bridal shower–she is truly amazing because she was able to come over last minute for that-phew!!

On my wedding day, Julie was on time, very professional, always with a smile on her face and so cheerful!! She did mine and my 5 bridesmaids makeup and everyone looked SO beautiful!! I absolutely loved my wedding makeup and it all stayed in place throughout the ENTIRE night!! I recommend Julie to all brides. She is great!!!!!”

jill wedding“Julie has been a long time friend of mine and I was so excited that she was willing to come out and do the makeup for my wedding party. Julie is very accommodating and even came to my house to do a trial for myself and my mother. My mom is VERY picky but with Julies charm and talent she won my mom over!! Julie also provided my mom and I with Prima Diva lashes, which were awesome! Mine stayed on for 3 weeks no problem! As for the day of, I couldnt have asked for a better makeup artist. She came the day before to make sure she knew where she as going. She showed up on time and ready to roll the day of. She did such a great job with all the girls and my mother and mother in law. I would recommend this lovely lady to anyone! Thank you so much Julie :)”

Troy-Engagement-Photos15“I met Julie at a local bridal expo and after setting up a makeup trial with her, I knew I had to have her for my big day! I loved how she took the time to go through all the details of my wedding day vision and helped create the perfect look. After my trial, I also had Julie do my makeup for my engagement photo session and thanks to her, my makeup looked absolutely flawless! I’m a huge fan of the airbrushing and lashes. She is extremely talented, very professional, reasonably priced, and SO fun! I can’t thank her enough for everything so far and I look forward to having her on my big day. I highly recommend Julie to any bride out there! Her work is amaaaazing. You will not be sorry!”

Emily and Simon“Julie did such an amazing job on my wedding day makeup. She understood exactly what I wanted. When I was hesitant to use the airbrushing from a previously bad experience, I trusted that Julie understood my skin complexion and it looked perfect!

The false eyelashes I had looked very real and natural- not too over the top.

We had such a fun time getting ready with Julie and I highly recommend her to any brides and wedding party members.”
Emily – Bride

“Julie exceeded my expectations when it came to the make-up. I told her that I wanted something as natural as possible and she did just that and then some. She was able to enhance my natural features and made me feel flawless and confident. My husband was speechless when he saw me! My bridesmaids all looked stunning, all naturally beautiful to begin with but Julie gave them that extra touch and we were all in awe of one another. The photographer even took note of her beautiful work and mentioned wanting to work with her. I, highly, highly recommend Julie for any type of make-up work, especially, a wedding! On top of being a great make-up artist she was very personable and we created some fun times during the make-up session. Much gratitude goes out to Julie from myself and all of my girls! I am so thankful that I was referred to her. I am definitely aware that no one else could have done a better job. Thanks Julie!”

Shannon E-shoot 2“Julie exceeded my expectations when it came to the make-up. I told her what I wanted and she did just that and then some. She made me feel flawless and confident. I can’t wait to see what she does to my bridesmaids on my wedding day. I’m positive they will all look beautiful. I highly recommend Julie for any type of make-up work, especially a wedding! She is a great make-up artist! She was very personable! Thank you so much for having the wonderful personality that you have and I can’t wait to work with you in 6 months! I will refer her to EVERYONE! Thanks Julie!”

“Julie did my hair and makeup for my special day and it came out exactly like I had envisioned. I had never had airbrushed makeup before and I loved the result. Julie not only did a beautiful job but she is such a sweet person, I enjoyed having her share in my special day. Thank you so much Julie!”

photo 2(1)I found Julie after I had a horrible makeup trial with another vendor. I scheduled a make up trial with Julie just 3 weeks before my wedding. I was so nervous but Julie put me at ease and really listened and took the time to show me different options. She not only took the time to make me beautiful but she got to know me. After I left the make up trial I felt like I made a friend. Julie was extremely professional throughout the 3 weeks to the wedding day. She kept in contact with me and went over some changes I wanted to make. On my wedding day Julie showed up at 9am and literally worked nonstop until about 2:30-3pm maybe even later! She didn’t once complain she was cheerful and excited just like all of us! Julie scheduled all my bridesmaids perfectly so I was the last person. My makeup looked beautiful absolutely beautiful- all of my bridesmaids looked gorgeous as well. Julie was detailed in not just my make up but all of my bridesmaids and that was really important to me bc I wanted them to feel absolutely beautiful too! I can’t express enough how stunning she made everyone look! Once all of us were done my husbands mother came in saw how great we all looked and asked if Julie would do her make up as well. My mother in law wasn’t scheduled and Julie had worked all day but without any hesitation she said yes! Overall, Julie went above and beyond! She is a very talented and gifted make up artist not to mention she is one of the kindest person I have ever met.”

“Our day was perfect and it could not have been that way without you! Thank you for my beautiful make-up on my special day! You were great with my girls and family as well! Thanks!”

photo (12)“Julie was awesome – she is new to the knot, but very experienced. I had a great trial with her – airbrushing and false lashes were complimentary at the trial and I went with both on the day. Julie was very responsive and made some changes I asked for after the trial. She also did a great job with my sister who wanted a bolder smoky look, and my mother who wanted something more natural looking. She was also great fun to have around in the morning!”

“Julie, is wonderful, not only was the make up she did great but she is such a sweet lady, it was so much fun to have her apart of the day!! MY wedding day was crazy and Julie knew what she was doing and she really wanted to do all that she could do to help!!”

“My experience with Julie was just amazing. We have all had our share of bad styling, but Julie is a true ambassador of beauty. She made myself, bridesmaids, and family look so elegant for my special day. Very professional, reliable and hassle free. I have and will continue to recommend her to my friends in the future. Thank you so much Julie!”
