  • There are not enough words to describe how amazing Carl is at what he does. He did my makeup for my COVID-19 micro-wedding and it could not have turned out more perfectly. I’ve had my makeup done by other professionals but Carl blew them all out of the water. He asked questions to understand my day-to-day makeup routine and then made me look (and feel) like the best possible version of myself. His personality made the day so much fun and the whole experience was unbelievably relaxing. Working with him was an absolute blast and made an already special day even more special. I felt extremely safe with the COVID precautions he took and can’t wait for him to my makeup for the bigger wedding celebration we’re planning for next year. Will never use any one other than Carl!
