Hello & Make up Recs

Hi!

I usually post on my local board but I have a questions for you ladies...I am nearing the end of my make-up trials and still haven't found an artist I like. I'm getting married in June & live in DE. Does anyone have an recs for artists' who do well with all ranges of skin tones in the Delaware, Philly, NJ area?

Help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

    The makeup artist I used was Emily from Cheekadee.  At first I was skeptical because she isn't an AA makeup artist but she is trained by MAC which we all know they are supposed to be able to work with all skin tones and types.  So I took a chance and I'm glad I did.  She did an awesome job on my wedding day.  She did my makeup and my bridal party.  My BM's skin tones and types all ranged from lighter to darker complexions and let me just say she impressed the hell outta me and my bridal party.  You can check her out on www.cheekadee.com. GL!

    P.S.  She did an awesome job on the lashes too.  I had two BM's who kept saying they didn't like false lashes because they look too fake.  All my BM's including me were rocking individuals on my wedding day, lol.

    I used Ria Fortune, she's from NYC and she traveled to central NJ the day of the wedding.
