Rave Reviews from Past Clients
"Kim was wonderful! Her makeup was so perfect and looked great all night! I would highly recommend Kim!"
"Kim is fantastic! I had procrastinated till about a month before the big day to book someone - mainly because I have problem skin (Psoriasis) and I don't wear makeup. During the trial, I shared my concerns with Kim and in talking with her, I felt less apprehensive. I had never heard of airbrushing and was amazed by how light the application was! She put me in front of the mirror and for a second I was stunned - I was surprised that while I looked extra hot, I still looked like me, natural. We also talked about the possibility of having to cover up some of the psoriasis spots, she said that if I needed it the day of my wedding that it would be no problem. She made me feel comfortable and even a little excited about makeup. On the big day, she did a great job on the girls and again did an amazing job on me. Thankfully I didn't need to cover up any spots - but I felt completely confident in her abilities, that if the worst case scenario happened, I would still have looked beautiful."
"I can't say enough about Kim! My makeup on my wedding day was perfect! I am not one that wears a lot of makeup and my husband would prefer if I wore none. When I told her that at my trial she did just enough so that it would stand out in pictures, but that I looked like myself and not overly done up. On my actual wedding day I felt that my makeup looked even better than in the trial. I loved that Kim took detailed notes on the colors and such that she used and I felt so comfortable with her doing my makeup on my special day. She did exactly what I asked for and made me look beautiful.
Kim also did my mother's makeup as well as my sister and sister in law. My mother had a trial, but asked Kim to change a little bit the day of and her makeup on my wedding day rocked! The other two ladies hadn't been through a trial but Kim did an awesome job on their makeup just going off of their requests. She is such a professional and not to mention a real sweetheart. I truly enjoyed working with her for my wedding!"
"Kim was absolutely fantastic! My makeup, along with all of my bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law, looked perfect and was just what everyone was looking for. She was on time, kept right on schedule, and was flexible when need be. Kim is a wonderful artist and was a wonderful attribute to my wedding day!!"
"Kim is an amazing make up artist! My make-up was flawless for my wedding day. She did exactly what I asked for, a classy and natural look, with an airbrush foundation. On my wedding day I felt amazing and received tons of compliments on my make up. Kim was extremely easy to work with and made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. She is so nice and really cares about each one of her brides. Her time management skills are also great. She was able to set a schedule according to needs and times of various peoples hair appointments. She is extremely clean and thorough while cleaning her brushes (so important), before using them on a new face. My family and bridesmaids also looked so beautiful and I was thrilled that they all loved their look. My pictures looked amazing! I would highly recommend Kim to do your make up! She is the best!!"
"My makeup looked amazing for my wedding! It was not over the top and definitey not understated. She listene to each of my girls and they all looked so beautiful. My mom was so nervous to get her makeup done but, as soon as Kim was done she was so grateful! I can not thank Kim enough. She is talented and helped make my wedding beautiful!"
"As a girl who rarely ever wears makeup it was a change to look in the mirror and know I had a full face of makeup on. Yet, Kim made it feel as if I had put nothing on. I'm very fair skinned and easily turn red but Kim applied my make up flawlessly. I couldn't believe at the end of the day that my makeup stayed in place.My 95 year old grandma also loved the lipstick shade and I can't thank you enough for putting a smile on her face by helping her to apply to it."
"Kim was great on my wedding day! She made sure everyone was ready on time and everyone's makeup looked stunning!! All of our makeup lasted the whole night! Kim was also sweet enough to help me with tan lines since my dress was strapless. I would recommend her to everyone!!!!!"
"Kim was just wonderful. She listened to what I wanted, and after the make up trial, I knew she was the one for me. She did make up fro me and my two matrons of honor and did a fabulous job on all. Hours later fter the wedding and reception, we still looked great. On your special day, you will be pleased to have Kim make you look fabulous too!"
"Kim was wonderful to work with and did an amazing job with wedding day makeup. My makeup lasted all day and looked perfect even at the end of the night."
"Awesome Awesome Awesome! Had a fantastic experience!"
"Kim was wonderful and a pleasure to work with. My make up looked awesome and stayed on until the next morning!"
"Kim was extremely professional and personable as well. I did not even have to remind her of my concerns and my makeup turn out exactly how it did at my trial. I did appreciate that the trial was a full run through...some places don't do the entire thing till the day of. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I receive many compliments on my makeup."

"Kim did my makeup for my wedding and was fantastic. I would definitely recommend her. She was very professional and did a fabulous job."
"Kim did the makeup for myself, the bridal party, and the mothers for my wedding. She did a great job and was completely professional. She kept us all on schedule and everybody looked fantastic. Having only gotten 2 hours of sleep the night before, I looked horrible in the morning and she completely transformed me. She is also very reasonably priced. Overall, I was very happy with her and would recommend her to any bride."
"Kim was great! She responded to my emails in a timely manner and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. She arrived on time and made all of us look absolutely beautiful! She even helped my niece cover up a big pimple on her nose! I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing makeup!"
"Kim provided makeup services for myself including my mother and several bridesmaids for my wedding day. I was very concerned about getting my makeup done because I have oily skin and typically if I do not use specific makeup, my makeup will not last for long periods of time. Kim spent time talking out a variety of options to make sure she was going to use the correct products. Kim is very professional, called me back the very next day after my late night email and spent a lot of time discussing her services before setting up a trial appointment. Kim is very talented and I would recommend her services to any bride. Kim made me feel very comfortable with her and I was not worried about how my makeup was going to turn out my wedding day."
"Kim did an amazing job with my bridal makeup. She was such a pro. I went to quite a few trials with other vendors before finding Kim. Our wedding was on a hot August day, and I have combination oily skin - but my makeup stayed flawless all day and I never looked shiny! She also really listened to what I wanted in terms of the look I was going for and had great ideas for how to achieve it. I really can't say enough about what a great job Kim did. If you are looking for flawless makeup that stays on all day, that never looks shiny, and makes you look your hands down absolute best - then go with Kim. You won't be disappointed!!!"
"Kim was FABULOUS! She did a trial and we did a number of changes to the colors the day of the trial. Kim wrote everything down so she would have it perfect for my wedding and that is exactly what it was, PERFECT!"
"Kim is an outstanding makeup artist and a lovely person. For my daughter's wedding, she catered to different ages and styles. Her personal attention to detail and her natural openness to listen helped make us all feel and look beautiful and unique. We received compliments all day about our makeup, particularly the bride. Also, and very important to the day, Kim travelled to our wedding location in New Hope and coordinated her efforts with those of our hair stylist. We were all super pleased and would contact Kim again for a special occasion."

"Kim is an incredible make-up artist. Kim did a wonderful job the day of the wedding!! Everyone in the bridal party looked great! Everyone’s make-up looked very natural, flawless and photographed well too. Kim took time to understand what kind of look I was trying to achieve. I don’t wear a lot of make-up and did not want to look over-done, and Kim made sure to give me the absolute perfect look. She is very flexible and extremely pleasant to work with. She was able to coordinate her schedule to make sure that she could finish the entire bridal party on time. The makeup lasted from the early morning through the evening. She even gave everyone a small lip gloss so that we could reapply the same color she used throughout the day. What an awesome idea!!! We were all very happy with her service and I would definitely recommend her to anyone for a wedding or whatever other special occasion you might need makeup for."
"Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with. She truly helped myself (the bride) and several bridesmaids look beautiful on the big day! She was professional, caring, and very creative. She was patient and devoted a long time for each service performed. There are many makeup artists to choose from, especially in the tri-state, and I am very happy to say that I chose the best!"
"I would highly recommend Kim as a make up artist for any Bride and Bridal Party. I loved my make up as did the other bridesmaids. Looking at the wedding photos, we can see how natural and flawless we looked. Kim also provided us with some great make up tips that are now part of my daily regiment! With Kim's experience, talent and personality, there's no question I will use her to do my make up for any special occasion."
"This vendor is absolutely phenominal. Kim worked around my schedule and conveniently accomodated meeting me a the hotel where the wedding party met the day of the wedding. Everyone at the wedding complimented how beautiful my make up was and each and every picture reflected it. I will definately reccomend Kim for all of my friends weddings and use her for all special occasions in the future."
"I was very happy and pleased with the way my makeup looked for my big wedding day. Make up for you did an outstanding job, I was very happy!"
"Kim did my make-up for my wedding. She was soooo great! The make-up looked great, felt very comfortable. The air brush was not heavy at all, however it was long lasting. From my photo taking til the end of the reception, it was almost 10 hours. I did not have to reapply any make-up other than lipstick. Kim is also very nice. She works around your schedule and shows up on time. I would recommend to do a trial with her first just so you know what you want for the actual day of the event. Thank you, Kim!"
"I cannot say enough about the amazing experience my bridesmaids, mother and I had working with Kim for makeup for my wedding. Thank you for the excellent experience and I would recommend Make-up For You to anyone!"
"Easy to work with and get in touch with. Very friendly and personable."
"Kim did a beautiful job with my and my mom's make-up for my wedding day! She was very easy to work with and very accommodating!"
"Everything I wanted for makeup, Kim was more than happy to provide. She was friendly and professional every step of the way and even when I decided to change my makeup look a bit between our trial and day of service, she was more than happy to help. Everything looked absolutely beautiful on the day of the wedding and I got many compliments on the look of my makeup. I wanted to look very natural but radiant, like "me on my very best day." I didn't want to look overly made up. Kim delivered what I was asking for. Thank you!"
"Kim did a great job on myself and my two bridesmaids. I had a bad experience with getting my eyebrows waxed the day before and I had red marks all around my eyebrows the morning of my wedding. Kim was able to cover them up perfectly and still made me look great! She truly saved my day and I would recommend her to anyone who wants their make-up done for a big event!"
"Kim McGillan is the best make-up artist. She is extremely professional, dedicated to her craft, and great personality. She really took the time to put my make up and make sure that I was satisfied. My photographer also liked her work and even approved it for taking professional pictures for my wedding. If I ever need a make up artist for an event, I know that I can count on Kim to make sure I look completely flawless."
"Make-Up For You did an amazing job for myself and my bridal party. Kim is an absolute sweetheart, and not only made me look, but feel beautiful on my big day! She had a wide variety of make-up choices which was great for the different skin tones and color preferences between me and my girls. Definitely will (and have!) recommended to friends and family.=)"
"Kim was fantastic. Professional, accomodating, and very flexible. She did dramatic evening smokey eyes for me with airbrush foundation, classic clean and fresh for my girls who wanted that and every style inbetween. From a girl who could open her own little MAC store and was very picky about the make-up I HIGHLY recommend Kim. Her range is spectacular and she could not have been more pleasant!!!!"
"Kim was great to work with. I told her I didn’t wear a lot of makeup and wanted something natural looking. She did an amazing job. I received compliments all day and not only that but I felt beautiful. The day of she was on time. I was not done getting my hair done but they worked well together. She was very easy to work with. She even touched up my mom’s eye makeup without charging her. I would definitely recommend Kim. In fact, I plan on taking one of her makeup classes."
"Kim is great. Had a trial and she explained air brushing vs regular makeup. I was happy with my trial. I was getting married on the beach so I went with the air brushing makeup. Kim worked with me at the trial to make sure everthing she did I liked. She wrote everything down that she used. The day of my wedding she showed up 20 minutes before the time she was scheduled. She came on site to the hotel I was getting ready at down the shore. Her time frame was spot on for doing my make up, my maid of honor and my mother. Kim was very easy to work with and made you feel beautiful. I got so many complements on my makeup."
"Kim did a beautiful job for myself and my bridesmaids the day of the wedding. She remembered all the items we discussed during my trial so it was an easy process. My only complaint is that Kim tried to up-sell my bridesmaids the day of the event. I planned to do airbrush for myself and traditional makeup for the bridesmaids for budget reasons since I was paying for everyones makeup. However, Kim asked each girl if they preferred airbrush, which was about $20-$30 more per person. I felt that since we had a contract and I was paying for the services, Kim should not have sold the airbrush without consulting me beforehand. Otherwise, Kim did a great job with the services and was very easy to work with."
"Kim did make-up for me, my mom and bridal party on my wedding. All of our make-up was perfect! It was nice because she asked questions and really listened to what everyone was loooking for so that we felt comfortable. She uses MAC too which is a plus because MAC really is the best. I am picky with make-up too, and have experienced a few make-up artists who used really unflattering shades on me. Yet, this did not happen with Kim. I highly recommend make-up-for-you to anyone who wants to look their absolute best for an occasion. She did an amazing job AND a pleasure to work with!"
"I loved my makeup on my wedding day! I still looked like me, just enhanced. It lasted the entire day even after lots of pictures outside on a summer day and non stop dancing on the dance floor. Kim was very professional, calling to let me know she arrived early and was setting up in the bridal suite. She was very knowlegeable about the products she used and I felt confident that she was going to make me look beautiful."
"Kim did an amazing job for my wedding. She did the make up for me, my mom, and my sister (my matron of honor). I got married on one of the hottest days in July and my make up stayed perfect for the whole day. Kim even helped fix my veil that I felt was slightly lifting out of my hair. Kim is amazing! If I had any other function to go to she would be the first person I call to do my make up."
"I found Kim through Wedding Wire reviews and once I looked at her website I knew she was the person I wanted to work with. I don't wear a lot of make-up so my biggest concern was working with someone who would make me look natural and not over the top. Kim was extremely easy to work with. She responded quickly to e-mails and was very flexible with times for a make-up trial. All of her prices are completely reasonable and worth every last penny. On the day of the wedding everyone commented about my make-up. It was over 95 degrees that day and we took pictures outside BEFORE the ceremony. I was so worried that I would look sweaty walking down the aisle, but the make-up stayed perfectly and no one knew I had been outside for so long. Kim has a calming presence that makes you sit calmly and quietly before the wedding begins. She makes sure it is exactly what you are looking for and your opinion as a bride is very important to her. My mom was so happy with the make-up experience with Kim, she went out and bought all new make-up after Kim gave her some tips (unrelated to the wedding). Perfect experience! Thanks Kim!"
"We all loved Kimberly! Her prices were reasonable, she's nice and fun to be around, and she is great at what she does. All the girls looked beautiful. Plus she throws in a sample lip gloss for all the girls to keep for touchups for the rest of the night, and she even threw some blush and lip gloss on the flower girl to make her feel included. I could not have been happier with Make-Up For You. :-)"
"Kim provided makeup services for my bridal party, mother, and for me, the bride. She was extremely professional, patient and has a natural way of putting whoever sits in her chair at ease. Kim listened to what each girl wanted and made everyone look beautiful without being overdone. The makeup photographed very well which was a very big concern of mine and lasted for a majority of the night. It was a great experience and I would recommend Make-up for You to future brides."
"I couldn't have been happier with my makeup. I couldn't believe how beautiful my girls and I looked. I would recomend Kim to any bride she was amazing!"
"Kim from Make-Up For You was great. I had a vision of what I wanted for my make-up and she made that vison come true. I felt beautiful and glamorous. She also did an absolutely amazing job on my bridal party as well as she was able to accomodate 2 of my future sister-in-laws at the last minute. Overall it was a great experience and I would use Make-Up For You to have my make-up done for future special occasions!
"I was so very pleased with the terrific job Kim did with my make-up, on my wedding day. Not only is she a pleasure to work with, she listens to what's important to anyone sitting in her chair. She's creative and savvy, though will also take suggestions, if you have other ideas. I will recommend Kim to any Bride and Bridal party. My Wedding Day was less stressful because Kim was so great!"
"My experience with Kim and Make-Up For You was excellent. I was originally going to get my makeup done by the salon that was doing my hair, however their makeup person was unresponsive and was not able to set up a trial with me until very last minute, leaving me with a nervous feeling that I did not need on top of all the other wedding stress. My sister recommended Kim and I explained the situation and she was able to do a trial right away and fit it into her schedule to handle my makeup and my girls on my wedding day. Kim came to my parents house the day of the wedding and did the bridesmaids makeup and then did my makeup and waited until we left for the ceremony before leaving herself. I felt extremely comfortable and at ease with Kim; it was a a relief to know I had one less thing to worry about on such a hectic day. My makeup was exactly how I wanted it to be and stayed put the entire day and night (it was VERY humid). The wedding was almost 2 years ago and I still receive compliments about my makeup and I have consistently referred Kim & Makeup For you to friends and family who are getting married!
