"Many people may say this, but I truly mean it: I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day, and it's because of Anne Lauren Jolly. From the lashes to the lip color, she has such an understanding of what look each girl wants and creates it effortlessly by showcasing their natural beauty. What I also loved was her professionalism with keeping us all on time. She did the makeup for me, my bridesmaids and my mother before the hair stylists even finished everyone's hair! No one ever felt rushed or anxious, because she has a natural ability to make clients feel calm, beautiful and ready to walk down that aisle. Looking back on our wedding pictures, I can't thank Anne Lauren enough for making me feel so confident on my special day. Each member of my bridal party was thrilled as well! She is simply a master of makeup." - Russell Douglas
"I would recommend AnneLauren to anyone! She is so good at what she does. I provided very little direction, but she listened to the few things I did request and my make-up turned out exactly how I wanted. She has a way of making your make-up look special for the occasion without looking overdone. We had an outdoor reception in the South in May. It rained and was very humid and my make-up stayed put until the very end! Through afternoon photos and a late night reception - I didn't worry about my make-up once that day thanks to AnneLauren. Book her quickly!" - Amy McEachin
I was SO lucky to get to work with Anne Lauren on my wedding day! Not only is she one of the sweetest people I've ever met but she is such a fantastically talented makeup artist. I got so many compliments on how fresh and glowing my makeup looked, even late into the night. She did my makeup around noon and it looked flawless until after the wedding! It was so fantastic that I didn't even need to touch it up throughout the whole evening. She also did my moms makeup, and she still rants and raves about Anne Lauren! I have had my makeup done, as a bridesmaid, many times and no one has come close to the beautiful job Anne Lauren did! I would highly recommend Anne Lauren for anyone looking for a perfectly flawless look for any special occasion! - Hannah Stair Roberts
