Not only was KKB'S make up flawless- it lasted all day and was still beautiful when my event was over!
I booked Kristen for an event this past 4th of July and I couldn't have booked a better makeup artist. She was professional and arrived right on time as agreed. Extemely pleasant and her work came out amazing. I had SO many people ask me about my makeup. I really felt like a princess even though it wasn't even my wedding. I 100% recommend her! She was awesome and did a fantastic job. Such a pleasure to work with. I'll definitely be coming back to her!!
Saturday June 06, 2015 was my wedding, KKB was my makeup artist and my bridesmaids, mother of the bride and my maid of honor. She transformed my face so beautiful that everybody all night keep telling me how beautiful we were.
She was one time, professional, very funny. She was a stranger to me now she's a friend. I know for sure I'm going to book her for another event. One of my bridesmaid getting married next year. She told me she's going to used her. I love you KKB. Thank you so much.
