I knew from the first time that Hollie Whitis did my makeup that I would never use another artist again! She truly listens to her client’s ideas and specifications and she produces a finished product that anyone would be proud to wear. Many makeup artists stick to their own agendas and provide every client with the same “in the box” makeup approach. With Hollie, that is never the case. She is an extremely unique artist and bestows the right mind set and attitude needed to create a stunning look for any occasion or event. She wants her customers to feel beautiful and shares a connection with each and every person that she works with. Hollie has done my makeup for Halloween parties, business functions, and other special occasions and I have been completely and overly satisfied with what she has done. In fact, she will be doing the makeup for my wedding in October of 2013. If you are looking for a down to earth, trendy, and knowledgeable makeup artist, Hollie is the right choice. She is one of a kind in the makeup world!

I had one bridesmaid, a maid of honor, my mother-in-law, and my mother with me for makeup. Five very different women with very different looks and personalities. Hollie created a beautiful collection of looks that were cohesive but also individualized for each woman's personality. We all said "wow" when we saw ourselves, felt gorgeous all night, and snuck looks at ourselves the whole night through. She focused all of her attention on my bridal party and me to ensure we felt beautiful and comfortable. We asked Hollie to stay for touch-ups, and she not only did that, but also helped resolve some hair issues (flyaways and runaway curls after we had issues with my limo) even though it was not part of the contract. She was so focused on us; I felt gorgeous, pampered, and cared for, and the most important women to me felt the same way. We are so happy Hollie was part of our special day.
I was a model on "Daytime Tampa Bay" and Hollie did a great job on my makup. I looked natural on TV and Hollie was an expert on "HD" makup. I would not have know how to apply that but she did. She was very nice to work with and efficent in her skill. Thank you Hollie for making me feel beautiful!
