    I'm using Francesca Lombardo, www.bobbiepinbeauty.com. She's giving a great rate because I had a trial with her, used her for my boudoir shoot, and she's doing my entire wedding party.  She's more than willing to work with your budget.

    Thanks!  I took a look at the website.  She seems great!  I sent her an email to see if she is already booked.  Thanks for your help!

    I also used Francesca.  I had myself and six attendants to do, and she was the only one who offered any sort of reasonable group rate.  I'm glad to see she's becoming more popular around these parts, she's a total doll.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    I am using Harmony Medina... who has been GREAT with communication, includes a free trial, airbrush and eyelashes.  She is also the best price I found by far and is doing my entire bridal party and mothers (8 plus me)!  She gave a great group discount.

    I second the Harmony Medina suggestion.  She is doing myself and four others for a great rate!!!

    I'm going with Harmony Medina.  She has been so great to work with and I love the fact that she does a trail run for free, which I'm doing when we go to Vegas next month.  Plus she will come to you at your hotel for the trial and on the wedding day which was also a big plus.  My BP is very pleased with her prices and group discounted rate.

    @ smokeybailey - I originally wanted to book Glam Squad but  I read that they could be a bit slow at times in responding, and then I read a few reviews of them showing up late as well which I didn't like so that's why I ended up booking elsewhere....that and the group discount I was offered with Francesca was too good to pass up!

    I am using Harmony Medina, she is super responsive and you can call or text her any time with questions.
    Francesca L was my first choice, since she was highly reccomended by Mike L. (my photog), however she was already booked for the day.

    has anyone heard from Francesca recently? I was in communication with her, but she never replied to an e-mail a couple weeks ago. I sent her another e-mail yesterday saying I want to book her, but I haven't heard back yet.

    Natrasha, i tried booking with Francesca but she stopped responding to my emails. It was good in the beginning, after that i didn't feel like  I could count on her for my big day. So your not the only one she's done this to!!  I went ahead and booked with Harmony Medina. And she has been fantastic. Communication with her is not just e-mail. You can call or text her. Prices are better then what Francesca quoted me!

    I'm using Lori White, she's had numerous great Knottie reviews in the past, and she includes the trial which is nice, I'd rather not pay $100 for the trial like some other artists charge.  Here are the prices she gave me:


    bridal hair design and make-up ....................$200bridal hair design only ......................$100bridal make-up application only ..................$100attendants hair design and make-up ................$100attendants hair design only ..................$ 75attendants make-up application ..................$ 50mother's hair design and/or make-up ...........$50 & upchildren ...........................$25 & up

    Her email is lala@altf.com

    Regarding Francesca - I just got a Facebook request from her, so she must be around...

    Hi ive been contacting and looking at glamsquad and they got back to me straight away!! they have even sent me 3 follow e-mails to see if i want to book or have any questions, i recieved an email this morning saying since i live in the UK they will call me so i can ask any questions i want to know, Elise even took into account the time difference. so i think i may be using them.

    I just got a third follow up e-mail from Glamsquad!!

    I also got a reply back from Francesca! I'll just assume that the other e-mail from a couple weeks ago was lost in the interwebz.

    So I'll be using Harmony and Francesca! They were willing to work with another artist, so we can all be done in time :)

    I emailed Francesca last night about some questions, and she replied to me within a few hours, so she is out there. I know she's pretty busy though, like PP said she just had  a baby a few months ago.
