Love Notes

There are truly not enough wonderful words out there to describe the love that I have for Megan!! When I got engaged, I instantly contacted Megan about doing my makeup for my wedding. Being a wedding vendor myself, I have had the unique perspective of being able to work with Megan on other weddings. And I will be the first to tell you that her talents are unmatched. Megan goes above and beyond with every single one of her brides and will make you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself! Not only is Megan the most talented makeup artist out there (seriously), but she is one of the most genuine, loving, kind hearted people you will ever meet. She will greet you with the BEST hug, and really wants to get to know you throughout the entire process! Her kindness doesn’t go unnoticed, and it shines through her work! During my trial, I was blown away by how beautiful she made me feel, and it made me that much more excited for my wedding day! Not only is Megan incredibly talented, but she is extremely professional and does everything in her power to keep the wedding day moving smoothly. On my wedding day, we were so ahead of schedule and it put us all at ease, which is SO important to a bride! Megan is the best of the best, and I wholeheartedly mean that!! I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day, and I have Megan to thank for that! Beyond grateful for this gal and her talents :)

I LOVE Megan! If I could give her more stars, I would! You need look no further! Book her, NOW! Megan is a beautiful person inside and out who truly has a gift for making her clients look and feel gorgeous! She truly is a talented artist! She is professional and so knowledgeable, but more importantly she is kind and understanding. She takes the time and care to get to know each of her clients! She made me feel genuinely special each time I had the pleasure of having her do my makeup! She completed a trial, my engagement photo look, and wedding day makeup as well as makeup for my mom and four bridesmaids. We all looked absolutely stunning, and she took her time to create looks that best complimented each of us, making sure everyone was comfortable and felt beautiful! I have never felt so beautiful as I felt when I saw my wedding day look, and my husband could not stop staring at how gorgeous I looked! I could not have asked for a more perfect person to do my makeup!

Megan is the absolute best! From beginning to end I felt so at peace with my pick of having Megan do my bridal makeup, my bridesmaids and my Moms. She is the sweetest person to work with, so organized, passionate about what she does and is just phenomenal at her craft! I don’t tent to wear a ton of makeup, so picking someone for the big day I knew I wanted a certain look and Megan made me look better than I ever thought I could. I have seen in other pictures of different make up artists and even the person that did the make up for my Sisters wedding and I just felt the makeup was caked on, and I didn’t look myself and it wasn’t natural. Megan give that right amount of makeup that makes you look super glamours but also yourself. People have raved about how stunning I looked and continue too and I owe it all to Megan!! You will not be disappointed if you book her !

Where do I even begin.. I searched far and wide to find the perfect makeup artist for my big day and I absolutely know that is what I found!!! I am extremely picky when it comes to having my makeup done and it was so important to me that I felt and looked like myself on the most important day of my life. I made the choice to use Megan based on reviews I found and I know I hit the JACKPOT. Megan and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with. I can honestly say that I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day and I have Megan to thank for that! Megan is truly a joy to be around and is so knowledgeable about her area of expertise. She is easy to chat with and FUN to be around! I truly felt that I was having my makeup done by one of my best friends (she is just that wonderful). Megan has a passion for making others feel beautiful and it shows in her work. She listened to every request and idea that I had. I can honestly say that I looked and felt exactly how I’d always hoped I would on my big day. I had a very large bridal party of 12 bridesmaids (plus moms and another family member) - Megan and her team EXCELLED at making everyone feel beautiful with more than enough time to spare and all with smiles on their faces. My bridesmaids couldn’t stop commenting about how great Megan and her team were and how beautiful they felt. Megan is truly a gem among wedding vendors and a definite cut above the rest!!! If I could give her 10/5 stars, I would! THANK YOU, MEGAN!!!

Megan is phenomenal!! I have absolutely nothing but positive things to say about her. She takes the time to get to know you during your trial and makes sure she gets your vision perfect for what you want on your wedding day. If there was something I didn’t like she fixed it until it was perfect. I had 7 bridesmaids, 3 of which didn’t really wear makeup and the other 4 had different styles of makeup. She worked with them and kept my vision in mind and made them look absolutely stunning! The way she applied the false lashes on the girls was amazing they looked like their natural lashes, which I was blown away by. I loved my makeup on the day of my wedding I felt like a princess! When she showed me what I looked like I cried tears of joy because she captured everything I imagined! My now husband was blown away with how it looked and loved that it still looked like me instead of someone else like some makeup artists can do. But not Megan, her work is flawless!! I will always refer her hands down! Absolutely love LOVE her!

I don’t have the right words to express what a blessing Megan has been to me! She was recommended to me through my sweet photographer, Sydney Bruton, and I couldn’t be more pleased that our paths crossed. Not only is she an incredibly kind and easy-going person to be around, but she was also so attentive to my needs and really brought my bridal makeup vision to life. I had always hoped that on my wedding day, I’d feel the most beautiful I’ve felt in my life, and thanks to Megan, that couldn’t have been more true. She has such a talent for artistry. During both my trial and wedding day, she really listened to my feedback, and was able to make minor tweaks to my makeup that brought the whole look together. Not to mention, it was such a gift to be surrounded by someone who helped put everyone at ease. I would recommend Megan to absolutely anyone – I’m grateful to have gained a new friend through working with her!

Megan is the greatest makeup artist I have EVER had the pleasure to work with. I booked with her early, even though my wedding day was not for another year. The year quickly became busy, but Megan did not forget about me. From time to time, Megan would check in with me and give me pointers for researching wedding day looks. Unfortunately, I also have very, very oily skin. My greatest fear was having my makeup melt off my face halfway through my wedding day. But Megan made me feel beautiful, even with my skin’s own flaws!

As the wedding day got closer, I had completely forgot about my wedding day trial. But Megan did not! She courteously reminded me about scheduling the trial and was so generous enough to do the trial the morning before one of my bridal events! The wedding trial makeup turned out flawless, and it was easy to see why so many other woman had chosen her for such a special day. Megan aims for perfection each time, and although I was very pleased with my look, Megan was kind enough to reach out after the trial and ask to try different lipsticks for the wedding day. In something I have never seen a makeup artist do before— Megan tried on ~20 different lipsticks from a new collection and sent me photos of each one so we could find the PERFECT shade. It has blown me away that she spent so much time and attention on just one person. However, I know she treats all her clients with such professionalism and attention to detail.

Both at my wedding trial and on my wedding day, my make up stayed on my face the ENTIRE day and night. My lashes even stayed on perfectly the next day as I embarked on my honey moon! Everyone wanted to know who did my make-up as it turned out beyond my wildest’s expectations. I highly recommend Megan to any bride in search of the best make up artist. Thank you Megan for making me feel so beautiful on the most important day of my life!

Megan did a phenomenal job with my make-up for my wedding. I asked for a natural look that would last through the night and hurricane! She is very genuine and pays close attention to detail and really listened and worked her magic for the look I wanted!

Thank you Megan for a stress-free experience!

I had the pleasure of having Megan Quintana do my makeup for my big day and recommend you do the same! She did my makeup plus falsies for my wedding and was absolutely fabulous! The products she used lasted all day and night and looked stunning in pictures. I recommend booking a trial as well before the big day so you can play with ideas and colors. She was extremely accommodating when I changed my mind about a look, and was so willing to adapt to make sure I was completely happy with the finished product! I am so obsessed with the look she created!

Megan did my wedding back on June 5. I was in need of a natural look that would tie into my color scheme of blue/greens and lavender purple. She did an OUTSTANDING job making me look natural yet feel absolutely beautiful. I met her for a free trial and then she came right to my venue the morning of and did my makeup. She saw my vision and did a fantastic job. I definitely would recommend Megan! She was wonderful!
— Kelsey
Megan is amazing. I wish she could do my make up everyday. I usually don’t wear much make up and was nervous what a wedding day trial, but Megan was great. I felt comfortable and the make up looked amazing on my wedding day. She was efficient, great with the bridesmaids, and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend her to anyone I meet!

I worked with Megan Quintana Artistry for my actor headshots and it was an absolute pleasure. Not only is Megan talented and knowledgeable, but she has an easy-going demeanor that puts you at ease. I wanted natural makeup that highlighted my natural features and I was wowed when I saw my vision come to fruition. Megan is dedicated, reasonably priced, and genuinely connects with her clients and their vision. I highly recommend her and I look forward to working with her in the future!

I am currently working on a web show to promote the new Fox series, Scream Queens. After the first shoot we did, my cohost and I realized how badly we needed to find a makeup artist. Our makeup is usually fine, but under all the bright lights and camera flashes our facial features were blending all together and we did NOT look camera ready. We hired Megan to do our makeup for all 13 episodes of our webcast and so far we have only filmed the first two and we are already unbelievably impressed.
She is great at choosing shades that best suit your complexion as well as compliment the colors in the outfits provided by our sponsor for that day. She uses all Bobbi Brown products and they stay on longer than anything I have ever used. She did my makeup this morning at 7 am and it is almost 9 pm and I still look and feel beautiful!
She works with the individual concerns of each client and knows exactly how to play up different parts of the face to attract or detract attention from any particular area. A major concern for me is my eyes... I have always felt that they are too close together. Megan has this insane ability to magically separate my eyes just a tad... she is like Moses and the Red Sea when it comes to my eyes!!! I don’t know how she does it but she has just the right touch to fix my little problem. I have tried hundreds of techniques and cannot achieve what she can... she’s really got the “knack.” I would also like to note that se does not over do the makeup at all, like other artists have done to me in the past.
I would HIGHLY recommend anyone in search for an amazing makeup artist for any occasion.

For 3 consecutive weeks, my senior pictures got rained out. Finally, I had the chance to get my makeup done by Megan. Throughout the whole process, she was so helpful and personable. When I say that the results were flawless..I am not exaggerating! She captured exactly how I wanted to look & I felt so confident while taking my pictures because of my makeup. I would get my makeup done by Megan every single day if I had it my way!

Megan did the makeup for my October 2014 wedding at the Merrimon-Wynne House in Raleigh— myself along with the MOB and 6 bridesmaids. The result was a beautiful, natural yet striking effect, enhancing the natural beauty of the whole wedding party and giving us a seamless look we were able to take from our 2 PM ceremony to the evening reception! Megan was so flexible and helpful leading up to the big day with scheduling, the trial run, and suggestions — I was very lucky to have found her! I had bridesmaids that had never had makeup done professionally as well as those who love makeup, the bolder the better— and every one of them was put at ease and pleased with Megan’s beautiful work. I highly recommend her based on her skill, professionalism— and having another fun, charming lady around on the morning of a wedding to help ease some of the tension while getting ready is always a plus! Thanks so much Megan!

I had the pleasure of having Megan Quintana do my make up for the biggest day of my life, my wedding. She worked with me in finding the best style that fit my face and features. After my trial, she kept in contact with me throughout the day to see how the make-up was sitting on my face, which I thought to be incredibly sweet and a great way to for her to know exactly what products worked for me and which didn’t. On our wedding day she not only made me feel like a princess, but she did the make up of the two most important women in my mom and mother in law. Everyone felt amazing! The make up looked flawless the whole night (even through all the dancing and crying). I would highly recommend Megan Quintana. She accentuates your beauty in the most perfect way for any event you may be celebrating, big or small!
