Jamie Hammond“Anyone looking to use Karen’s make-up service needs to know how beautiful her work truly is.  Not only did she make my bridal party, my mother, and I look stunning for my wedding, her character and professionalism helped make my day even more special. After our initial consultation and trial run, I was relieved to know I had made the right choice and felt at ease the weeks leading up to my wedding.  I highly recommend Karen for anyone looking for beautiful make-up work, professionalism, and a touch of class for any event!”

LaurenClarkeIt was a true pleasure working with Karen from Cover Girl Brides.  My makeup and hair were exactly like I had always dreamt of, classy and natural.  She is a true professional and made my Wedding Day stress float out the window once I sat down in that chair and let her work her magic, and to top it all off, we actually finished ahead of schedule even with 9 wedding attendants! Karen is “one-of-a-kind.” – Lauren C…Karen is a talented hair and make-up artist!

TracyG5.JPG.w180h189I am so grateful to Karen for making my wedding day so special!!  From the day that we did my hair and makeup run-through I knew that I was in great hands with CovergirlBrides.  Karen listened to all of my ideas and made sure that I got exactly what I wanted.  I never worried about how my hair and makeup were going to look on my wedding day, I had complete confidence in Karen…..it was definitely a load off of my shoulders!  On my wedding day I got sooooo many compliments.  Karen even came to the church for a touch up before I walked down the aisle.  She is so sweet and talented; you cannot go wrong with choosing CovergirlBrides for your wedding day.  Thank you Karen!!! – Tracy

Erin1Hey Karen! First of all, I wanted to tell you again what a fabulous job you did for me for my wedding (November 21st at Francis Marion Hotel).  My skin was a nightmare from the facial I had two days prior and from stress of course, but you made it barely noticeale.  Anyway, here are the links to the big day as well as from the bridal portrait.  I still want to send you a before picture (which I took the morning after the wedding when my skin was still broken out), but I got a new computer and I can’t seem to get the images from my camera to computer, but I’m working on it.  Thanks again and Happy Holidays!  – Erin C.

Thank you for the fabulous job you did with my updo & my make-up for the ball.  My hair held up through a windy walk, a bubble bath & dancing wildly! Thanks.

Karen Thank you again a million times over for doing my hair and make-up.  You listened to every detail, worked with me on fresh ideas and made me feel like a beautiful bride the whole way through.  I didn’t have to do a single touch-up the entire evening and could focus all my attention to my new husband, our family and all our friends.  Now that I’m back in San Francisco I’m using the lip gloss you suggested for everyday wear as well.
