I have gotten to work with a lot of make up artists in my day and Shelly is by far my favorite! Why? Because she has mad talent and she is a blast to be around. She brings an energy that I believe every bride and bridal party needs at their wedding. Event though she has great energy she also has a calmness to her – you can tell that the bride is in full trust that she is going to make her beautiful. She did the make up for all the ladies at the Rad Retreat, and the ladies couldn’t have been happier – they all danced around with an extra pep in their step after they got all dolled up. If you are looking for a Make Up Artist you NEED to contact this girl – she will go on location!
