"Trace did my makeup for my bridal pictures and my wedding. I’m no makeup expert and wasn’t really sure about the looks I wanted. She helped me to really achieve a look that was perfect for me and for my big day. I was so nervous about going with a dark lip for the wedding although it was what I really wanted. She helped me out of my comfort zone and I’m so grateful she did because I LOVED my wedding look! I literally stayed on the dance floor the entire night dancing and having fun, and there was no smudging or leakage of any kind. My makeup stayed put the whole night! I’m so grateful for my experience with Face by Trace for my wedding. :-)"

"Tracie did an AMAZING job doing both my make up and that of my bridesmaids. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience the day of my wedding. I'll be honest - I'm not one of those brides who had a great vision. I just wanted everyone to look nice! But she went above and beyond that and had everyone looking amazing. I got compliments all night on my makeup. She worked with a rainbow of skin tones and skin types and had everyone looking like they were dancing in the same routine. It was really amazing. She was professional, on time, quick and precise. Couldn't ask for anything more. I highly recommend her for your wedding."

"I want to first start by saying Tracie made my bridesmaids and myself feel like the most beautiful women in the world. I found Tracie through social media. She did a local radio personality’s makeup often and I really liked it. The woman she did is darker complexion like myself and I admired how well she consistently did her makeup. From the start of this process she has been extremely professional. I went through a trial run a couple weeks before my wedding and I fell in love with my makeup. To my surprise on the day of my wedding she did my makeup with so much pizzazz and sparkle, I fell in love again. She said I deserved to look Even more beautiful on my day. We laughed, we talked, and it was such an amazing day. I felt like a princess and Tracie made that happen." - Ariel S.
