"I will start by sharing that a close girlfriend of mine who was very coherent at 2:00 a.m. said to me 'are you aware that your makeup looks absolutely flawless and exactly as it did when I saw you at 4:00 p.m.?'  I cried. I sweated. A lot. I smooshed faces with people for pictures. The makeup did not budge. I have never experienced that. I was 10,000% over the moon thrilled with it. I should have taken your business cards with me because half of the wedding asked who did the fabulous work. The girls and my mom were also just so happy and felt so amazing in their skin.  I will recommend you for years and years to come and look for any occasion to have my makeup done."  Meghan W.
"I've finally recovered from a fantastic wedding weekend to thank you for contributing to the beauty of the day.  I think we all looked our loveliest ever but Samantha was beyond gorgeous!  The photographers said they're adding her to their portfolio... I can't wait to see the photos.  Personally, I received so many compliments from our guests and more importantly, from my husband so thanks for making the mother of the bride feel young and beautiful too!  Thank you again for your artistry and professionalism- we're so happy to have met you."  Adrienne D.
"To an amazingly talented woman who is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.  I wish I could explain to you how you made me feel on my wedding day.  Thank you for making me look and feel beautiful. I am so grateful for your support and patience throughout my journey.  I said it before; I couldn't, and wouldn't have done it without you!  I am praying that we will cross paths again in the near future."  Kathleen O.
 

"I wanted to let you know how happy I was with my makeup on my wedding day. You are one extremely talented artist. I felt natural and beautiful and feminine and didn't feel like I was wearing anything!  Plus, your warmth and spunkiness made me comfortable from our first meeting. My girls raved about you. My fiance did too, and he complemented my makeup so many times. He said: "Beke understands subtlety and how to tailor the make-up to each person." I would agree, and add that you are just generally awesome and a master at your craft.I will happily spread the word about how talented you are to anyone and everyone. Thank you, Beke, you will always be a part of this beautiful memory."  Amelia F.

"Thank you so much for the amazing service you provided for my wedding in October.  My mother and bridesmaids looked gorgeous!  Beke, you made me glow and feel radiant - I think I was beaming from within.  The best compliments I received were that I still looked like myself, and that was so important to me on my wedding day.  I also appreciate all of the accommodations that you made to have the day go forward without a hitch.  You were wonderful to work with and I couldn't ask for anything more!"  Christine S.

"Your lesson has completely revolutionized the way I see and use make-up.  It has cut my application time to 10 minutes, streamlining my day immensely.  I'm confident that my make-up is enhancing how I look and I'm no longer on the endless search for the perfect (useless) product/s.  All I can say is 'wow.' And ‘thank you.’" Elissa C.

"Not that you do not already know but I LOVED my make up on my wedding day and I cannot tell you how many compliments I received from my friends and family. A couple of people said 'I feel like I'm in the movies looking at you,' which just topped my night. My mom and all of my friends also raved and looked incredible all night.  I can't wait to see the photos!"  Abby V.

"Just wanted to thank you again for yesterday. Thanks to you, I've never felt or looked more beautiful in my life. The ladies couldn't stop raving about you; the makeup you did was amazing. I am so grateful and honored you were able to be part of this special day.  My in-laws can't wait to do a lesson with you when they are back up this way, and I'll definitely be contacting you to schedule a fall-freshen up lesson in the near future."  Ellie P.

"I just wanted to say thank you so much for making me look like a rock star on my wedding day! It is honestly the most beautiful that i have ever felt!! Even my mom and sister in law who were so worried about having makeup done were thrilled with the end result! I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with you."  Rachel K.

"Just want to thank you again for the wonderful makeup lesson and consultation yesterday.  I left your studio feeling beautiful, happy and confident that I now had the knowledge and tools to enhance my looks for every occasion.  It was truly a privilege to spend my Saturday morning with such a warm, empowering and talented person."  Linda M.

"We would not have looked or felt as good as we did without you. I want to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you and having you with us on the big day. You have a calmness and ease while you are working which helped to keep me calm, and you made us all feel so beautiful with your exquisite makeup skills!! Thank you so much!!" Jamie R.

"I just wanted to send you a quick note thanking you for doing a fantastic job on everyone's makeup for our wedding day.  I also really, really appreciate you being able to squeeze in the last two additions.  This has been a tough year for my aunt, as she lost her son back in November.  All she did at the wedding was brag about how great she looked because you had done her makeup (she's not shy, but you already knew that!).  Thank you again for making us all feel as beautiful as can be on my big day!"  Caitlin W.

"Thank you so much for adding glamour to already beautiful girls on my son's wedding day. As for myself, you did an amazing job - I even slept with my makeup (something I never do) and woke up the next day looking great. Most of all, my new daughter-in-law was the most beautiful bride. I loved the attention and pampering you did with each and every one of us. Thank you so much!"  Marilyn B.

"Thank you for your staff's expert work for Megan's wedding.  Your make-up artists did a beautiful job. They were polite, respectful of the energy of the day and made every girl look beautiful.  The makeup held up through humidity and rain!  Thank you.  I will be happy to recommend you to future brides."  Debby Y.

"I am writing to express my gratitude for the exceptional job you did on my make-up last week.  Everything lasted well into the event - I couldn't believe it!  The flawless make-up application made me feel formal event ready.  I was in awe of how you transformed me into someone glamorous, yet I still looked like myself.  You are such a talented professional and I look forward to having another excuse to have my make-up done again!"  Lauren C.

"Thanks for the amazing job you did last Sunday making all look gorgeous for Shoshana's wedding. Not only are you extraordinarily talented, you were also incredibly kind and patient with every single member of the wedding party families. In particular, I really appreciated how you helped my Mom.  We all had a wonderfully relaxing and fun time getting ready thanks to Beke Beau.  You and your wonderful assistant contributed so much in making the wedding day perfect!   Most important, Shoshana looked and felt beautiful all night long. You are truly the best!" Phyllis P.

"From the moment you walked into the bridal suite, to all of the touch ups you did throughout the day and night.  You always had smile on your face and made us all feel calm, but ever so special and beautiful.  I know what a long day it must have been for you. I cannot begin to thank you for making us feel like princesses!!"  Jane K.

I just wanted to extend my most heartfelt thanks to you for transforming me into the most beautiful bride for my wedding day! I have never felt so pretty as I did that day! It was like a fairytale.... I really appreciate your amazing work and calming, positive attitude that day. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and I can't thank you enough."  Laurie T.

"I can't thank you enough for my amazing make-up and hair on my wedding day!  I felt beautiful and natural and I am so happy I came across your website on Brides.com.  I received many sweet compliments regarding my make-up and hair, which remained intact throughout the night and at our after party in Center City. Thank you for your flexibility, responsiveness and attention to detail. I really enjoyed working with you!"  Alba B.

"Thank you for the beautiful job of making all of us look the very best we have ever looked in our lives!   So many compliments about how beautiful my daughter looked (and even I had many people say how pretty I looked, which was so lovely!).  Of course, I gave you all the credit!  It was truly a pleasure meeting you and having you as part of our memories of this most wonderful day." Sylvia K.

"Thank you so much for your involvement in our wedding preparations!  We all felt so beautiful and comfortable with our makeup, and we so appreciate your help, creativity, and patience with all of us during the wedding day."  Aleeza W.

"I want to take a moment to let you know how much you meant to us all on Sunday.  As always, your tasteful, personalized make-up applications made us look like celebrities, and yet still natural and like ourselves.  All the ladies felt so pampered and pretty that it showed them to their best advantage all evening.

Beyond the make-up, however, what is appreciated most was your gift of calm benevolence that cannot but help to alter the atmosphere for the better.  You manage to communicate excitement without breaking the calm.  My daughter always feels great after seeing you, and I know that she was shyly thrilled with how she looked for her big moments.  Perhaps the greatest transformation, though, was my mother!  She arrived looking old and haggard, and emerged a Grand Dame under your ministrations.  You easily took 10 years off me, and my husband was amazed when he saw me peel off the false eyelashes, remarking that he had no idea I was wearing them!"  Barbara K.

"I wanted to thank you for your fabulous makeup applications throughout my wedding events.  I have received so many emails and Facebook messages complimenting my makeup, so I had to tell you that I have been recommending you left and right!  Not only was I so pleased with my makeup, but I truly enjoyed our visits.  You are lovely and I wanted to thank you so much for making this such an awesome experience."  Stephanie R.

"You are not only an accomplished artist but a kind compassionate person sending out loving vibes to all in your presence. You are a dream to work with, truly a pleasure."  Photographer Charlotte R.

"I’m writing to thank you for help in preparing for my wedding.   Your work was amazing and your kind, positive spirit was wonderful to be around as I prepared for my wedding ceremony.  Our pictures turned out so candid and lovely, and you were a huge part of that.  John and I had the most wonderful day and we are so glad that you were a part of it.  Thank you so much for helping me to feel my best for my wedding." Kathy T.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Everybody thought I was beautiful - what a fun thing that was!!!  Truly, you made me look amazing and I have never seen my daughter Tricia look more beautiful.  It was perfect and I cannot thank you enough." Pat P.

"Thanks again for doing such a great job on my make-up for my head shot. My makeup lasted all day and well into the night. I couldn't let those fab lashes go to waste so I went out!  The foundation still looked flawless when I washed my face at 2:00 a.m."  Laura M.

"I wanted to express to you how very much I appreciated the exceptional job you did on my make-up for both the wedding ceremony and reception. I thought both 'looks' were perfectly matched with each of my outfits.  Several of my friends commented on how wonderful my make-up looked, a true testament to your skills!  Thanks also for keeping me calm and collected during the wedding prep process.  It was extremely kind of you and I'll never forget that." Minal A.

"My daughter's makeup was perfect and when she put on her wedding gown she was the most beautiful bride ever! She never stopped dancing and the smile never left her beautiful face. It was a very magical day!! Thank you!" Judy C.

"I wanted to thank you again for the beautiful job you did on our make-up.  You did an amazing job on mine, of course, but my mom liked the way she looked in pictures for the first time ever!  She hasn't been well lately, and to see her feel confident about herself was heartwarming for me.  Thanks again, and keep up the beautiful work!" Nicole F.

"I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make my wedding day so perfect! I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist and really appreciate all your help. Everyone raved about my make-up and all my bridesmaids couldn't stop talking about how great theirs turned out! You really are the best! I can't wait to have another function to go to so you can do my makeup again.  Thanks a million!"  Fran S.

"We had such a fantastic evening, and are so grateful for the amazing make-up you did for us – me, my maid of honor, mother of the bride and mother of the groom.  We were all so pleased with the way we looked both in person and in the photos.  I’m sure you remember from the make-up trial how much my husband disliked me wearing make-up.  Well, on the wedding day right after we saw each other for the first time, he told me 'I can’t believe I’m saying this, but your make-up looks really good!'  You officially won over your harshest critic!"   Kate J.

"I'm on my honeymoon but had to email you to tell you how much you rock!! 'Gorgeous' is the only way I can describe myself after you got finished with me, and everyone else who your magic and talented hands touched. Thank you for your fun energy, and for being a remarkable make-up artist and such a great soul sister."  Rochelle B.

"Thank you for doing such a great job with Nicole Miller, she looked beautiful. I will look forward to meeting up with you in the near future for my personal consultation and make up ideas and tips to ensure I always look fabulous."  M.D.

"Thank you again so much for such a wonderful day and experience. It's not just about makeup; it's about feeling your best and most beautiful and you definitely made me and my mom and sisters feel (and look) our best. You are so phenomenal at what you do and we all looked fantastic for the entire night.  As you can see in the pictures, nothing wore off or moved at all!"  Chrissie M.

"Beke, thank you for making the pre-wedding hours so special!  Everyone enjoyed having their make-up done and the whole wedding party looked beautiful."  Dale P.

"Beke, you performed a minor miracle! You succeeding in making my mom feel comfortable with getting some make up, something my sister and I have been trying to do for 20 years!"  Natasha

"Every time I look at my wedding pictures it reminds me how lucky I was to have you as a make-up artist - the make-up was perfection. The best part was I didn't have to powder my nose or re-apply my lipstick all day! Thank you so much for the spectacular job you did."  Debra R.
