FACES by M  



"uncovering your inner goddess"

T E S T I M O N I A L S


I first stumbled upon Faces By M through social media, as she had done a mutual friend's wedding makeup. I was a fan of her work right away and knew immediately I had to hire her for my wedding makeup! We hit it off right away, and it’s hard not to, since Mari is amazing and so down to earth!
The bridal trial session was a blast as I got to know my make up artist and she truly made me feel pretty inside and out. 

I felt that the difference with Faces By M among other make up artists was that she brought out the best in me, enhancing my features with her skillful strokes and blending. I was fearful that with wedding makeup, people wouldn’t recognize me but by placing my trust in Mari, I knew I was in good hands! And surely she delivered! Not only did she do my wedding makeup, she also did my bridal parties makeup, from the bridesmaids to the mother of the bride. And every single one of them looked amazing! I’ve also used Faces By M for my engagement photoshoot and other parties as well, as she is my go to make up gal! 

I love referring her to my friends and family for special occasions where she has truly worked her magic on my relatives! Mari is professional, punctual, and a pleasure to work with. With my experience with her as my preferred make up artist throughout the years, I feel like I’ve also gained a friend!
