Bride 2016

I was so impressed with Darcie's professionalism! She responded promptly to my initial inquiry and to all follow up questions. She made sure that my look was exactly how I wanted it to be. Her prices are very reasonable and she is very talented--I highly recommend her! 

Casey S

Bride 2016

AMAZING!!!

Darcie was amazing and did both my makeup and my whole bridal party's mkeup for my wedding. So beautiful.

Alyssa

Bride 2016

Darcie did a great job! I was very unclear about what I wanted to look like for my wedding day but she was very helpful. She did several looks at my trial and wasn't even upset when I told her I wanted to do something else for the day-of. She was willing to make changes when I requested them and was fun to be around. She communicated clearly and her prices were very fair.

General Client 2016

Good choice for makeup

Darcie is a very nice lady whose studio is a large room in her home on the southwest side of town. She does a fine job with make up. All you have to do is tell her what you'd like. I thought her fees are very reasonable. I can see myself going back to her for my next special event.

Samantha V

Bride 2015

Darcie was simply amazing! I felt totally comfortable after meeting with Darcie during my consultation. She did a phenomenal job on my makeup along with my mom's and bridesmaids. My makeup stayed on all day and well into the after party and lasted many many tears! I know most wedding are extremely emotional but there were some extenuating circumstances around my wedding and Darcie never made us feel rushed or like we were wasting her time if something came up that resulted in a pause. I would recommend Darc

Hilary C

Sweet, accommodating, talented! 2015

Darcie was such a pleasure to work with for my bridal makeup! I had a trial at her home about 1 month before and when I contacted her after the trial to discuss some changes I wanted to make she was very receptive and encouraging. My day-of makeup application was exactly what I wanted, I was so happy with it! My other bridesmaids were also very pleased with their makeup. She made me and my girls all look so lovely and she was wonderful to have around while we all go ready together.

 

Ashley C

Bride 2015

It was wonderful working with Darcie! She was very professional but also personable to make you feel comfortable! I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Also, she was able to squeeze an unscheduled bridesmaid in with no fuss and everyone looked gorgeous.

Noni Ellis

Engagement Photo Shoot Makeup 2014

I hired Darcie to do my makeup for my engagement shoot. My fiancé and I were blown away by my transformation.  She was very easy to work with and very accommodating to my likes/dislikes.  Darcie has such a passion for makeup and it shows in the level of quality in her finished product.  She knew just how to maximize my assets and minimize my flaws.  I cannot recommend Darcie L. Makeup enough for your event/special occasions.  Lansing is truly fortunate to have such a talent.  Thank you so much!

 

Elizabeth

Bride 2014

Darcie did an amazing job for my wedding! I never wear makeup (ever!), and she was completely understanding and made sure we got a look that I was comfortable with and didn't feel too "made up". My bridesmaids looked great, too. She was a crucial part of making my special day one that I will always remember!

 

Kendra 

Darcie is the Best! 2014

Darcie had another wedding the morning of my wedding and I had a pretty large wedding party. She was worried not having enough time to get everyone done. However, she worked quickly and hard and her work really paid off. Everyone looked amazing and we got a lot of compliments about our makeup throughout the night. She did a great job and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist! 

 

Betsy

August Bride 2014

Darcie did the makeup for me and my bridesmaids and she did an amazing job. The makeup stayed flawless and doesn't feel heavy at all. I felt as gorgeous as I had hoped!

My wife and I wanted to take moment and say thank you so very much for your excellent service you provided for my wife Amy on our wedding. She was so pleased with your kind nature, talent, and skill that you held as her makeup artist. She commented on just how kind you were and how you made her feel very comfortable. Not only did she LOVE your work with the airbrush application, but she still looks at the photos and is so very happy how beautiful you made her feel on her wedding day.  Thank you again.

 

Julia

Past Bride 2014

I was SOOO pleased with Darcie and her step-daughter! They were both great and worked so well with everyone! She was on time and totally ready to go! Her pricing is totally worth it and I plan to use her services again for any upcoming weddings I need to attend or photo shoots! She is the one and only on my recommended services for my Preferred List in my event planning business! Love her!

 

Savannah

Prom 2014

I absolutely adore Darcie! From the moment I arrived she made me feel like we were best friends! She asked the perfect questions to figure out exactly what I wanted my makeup to look like and she didn't stop until it was absolutely perfect. I felt completely comfortable the entire time. I would recommend her to anyone looking for flawless makeup for literally any occasion. She is great! 

 

Bisi Hollist

Bride 2014

Darcie did a wonderful job on my makeup, and those of my bridesmaids and in laws. I had a consultation with her couple weeks prior to my wedding date, and I received tons of compliments just from the consultation. Therefore, I knew my wedding day wouldn't be any different. Darcie had a wide range of products/colors to choose from so we had no problems matching my skin tone etc. My bridesmaids and I are extremely pleased with our makeup and were so happy with Darcie. I highly recommend Darcie!

 

Catherine McDowell

Bride! 2013

Darcie was referred to me by a good friend and i am so glad I decided to have my makeup done by her. At first i wasn't sure about having it done, but after the consult i decided to have her do it. I loved how it made me look and everybody commented on how good i looked!  The airbrush look was very soft and natural!  Thanks Darcie!!

 

Heidi

Wedding Makeup 2013

Darcie did an AMAZING job! I don't normally wear makeup so I was quite apprehensive about getting it done, but she listened to exactly what I wanted and executed it perfectly. She is very reasonably priced. On our big day, she was prompt and ready to go! She did the makeup for all six of my bridesmaids, my mother, and my mother-in-law. The airbrush stayed on all day without any need for reapplication or touching-up. Thank you so much!

Christina

PA-C 2013

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding August 10th so I called Darcie to do my make up because I wanted air brush make up and she did an amazing job. I was hesitant at first because it was my first time ever getting air brush make up and I have a dark skin tone so I wasn't sure if she would have make that matches my skin tone but Darcie made it work and I looked flawless throughout the night. She is very professional and really cares about making you look your best. I am thankful to Darcie. 

 

Angela

Bride 2013

Darcie did my makeup for my wedding and it was beyond beautiful. I got married July 27th and it was an outdoor ceremony....the makeup lasted all day. I don't wear makeup and I was worried about how I would look, but I was beyond happy with the results. She also did my mom's and she looked stunning. I would recommended her to anyone that's looking for a makeup artist with a good personality. Thanks Darcie!!!

 

Theresa

Bride 2013

Darcie did my makeup for my wedding, along with two bridesmaids. She did such an amazing job. I have never felt more beautiful and the makeup was flawless. It seriously lasted all day long. It was wonderful to have one less thing to worry about. Her patience and attention to every detail made the entire experience even more so perfect.

 

Alysia Osoff

Bride 2013

Darcie did my makeup for my wedding along with 6 bridesmaids. I was very pleased with the services that she provided. My makeup looked AMAZING and lasted until 0400 the next day. Having this support takes off so much pressure of getting ready.  I also used my practice session for my engagement photo's.  Highly suggest Darcie for your special day!!!

 

Dyan S

Wedding 2013

I was a bridesmaid in a wedding in Lansing.  I am from out of town so I did a Google search to find a make-up artist and found Darcie.  I'm so glad I did!  My makeup was amazing; I got so many compliments.  Plus it lasted the entire evening, even through sweating on the dance floor.  I usually don't wear make up, but even my husband loved it - it was natural with a hint of glam.  Darcie you are amazing. I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful job you did!

Sooo Patient!!! 2012

Darcie did the make up for my wedding last December. She was so patient and helpful! She spent three hours with me during the make-up trial (literally!) until we got it perfect.

I worked with Darcie on a photo shoot a month and half ago and she was fantastic to work with!

Maggie

Bridal Customer 2012

Hi Darcie, I wanted to say thanks again for the make-up. As someone who doesn't wear a lot of it, I was a bit nervous about the whole air-brushing thing (as you know). But everyone told me how great I looked and when I started seeing the pictures, I got it - I really did look like a beautiful bride!  You are a great artist, and it was a pleasure to work with you! Cheers, Maggie
