Where do I even begin? Lindsay is as good as it gets...I moved to Tampa from Los Angeles 6 months before my wedding and knew nothing about the local vendors. I had worked in Hollywood PR for 5 years and had worked with some of the best celebrity hair stylists & makeup artists in the business. I was almost positive I wasn't going to find ANYONE in Tampa that would be on par with them, but I was dead wrong. After EXHAUSTIVE research and talking to several different local makeup artists and companies, I decided to go to Lindsay for a trial. Not only was Lindsay adorable and sweet in person, but this she is AMAZINGLY TALENTED. She is warm, welcoming and her cozy studio makes you feel like you are getting a very private and VIP session. I was immediately impressed to see all the same brands celebrity makeup artists use in LA for red carpet events and photo shoots. She also really LISTENED to me and worked with me to create a perfect look. I was extremely pleased with my trial and decided to book her for my wedding. The wedding day went incredibly well...Lindsay exceeded my expectations ten-fold. She arrived early, set everything up and perfectly timed everything so that she had enough time for the 7 girls + me booked for makeup before our early evening beach ceremony. She made my mom look 20 years younger, my sister (who rarely wears any makeup at all) look incredibly stunning and all of my bridesmaids (with diverse skin tones) looked GORGEOUS - flawless skin and perfect makeup all around. My day-of makeup turned out even BETTER than the trial (which I didn't think was possible). Lindsay gave me flawless looking skin...my eyes & lashes looked natural but glamorously elegant and she picked the perfect shade and gloss for my lips. I have gotten TONS of compliments from friends on the makeup (my LA friends even thought I booked a celebrity artist!!!). I cried during my ceremony, but the makeup held up really well...I still booked her for touch-ups after the ceremony and she did a great job on me and everyone else. My makeup literally stayed on ALL NIGHT through beach wind, Florida humidity, plus lots of dancing, eating & drinking...all the way until my wedding night ;-) LINDSAY IS AWESOME. If you don't book her, you'll wish you did. Not only will she do an amazing job on your makeup, but she will bring a sweet, calming presence to your wedding day. P.S. I thought her prices were reasonable, but in case you have any concerns...trust me...she is worth every penny!

Super helpful in the color selection. When I didn't know what I wanted, Lindsay asked the right questions to help me explain what my vision was! I really enjoyed her, she was very personable!

Lindsay did the make-up for me and my bridal party and she was amazing. Not only is she professional and easy to be around, but her prices were really reasonable. I was so pleased with my trail run, and the day of my wedding was even more amazing! I have never felt as beautiful as I did that day and I owe so much of that to Lindsay! I would definately recommend her to any bride for the big day. It made such a difference in our pictures, and people still keep telling me how beautiful I was. Thanks Lindsay!!

Lindsay did makeup for 2 bridesmaids, a close friend, and me. She met us at the hair salon and was able to get us all prettied up in a couple of hours. I don't normally wear makeup so had no special requests. I let her do her thing and it worked out great. One of the girls did have a special request to match her outfit and Lindsay was able to deliver perfectly, without even seeing the actual outfit. All the girls were very happy with the finished product and enjoyed Lindsay's easy going and friendly personality.

Lindsay Does Makeup, i.e., Lindsay is not only a very talented makeup artist, but a really fun and friendly person as well. At our initial meeting, she quickly put my nerves at ease and proceeded to come up with a special look for me. On our wedding day, she was there on time with everything she needed. She was fun to interact with for me and my family and made me look lovely for our special day. It was 90 and humid and you would never know by looking at my photos. Makeup was flawless!!

Lindsay is amazing. There are no other words. She did my make up for my wedding, as well as my mom's and bridesmaids. And it turned out, we discovered she had done my sister's wedding make up 4 years before!! During the trial run, Lindsay hit the nail on the head. I knew as soon as she finished my foundation that I would be using her and I'm so glad I did! I have never felt more beautiful and I'm so happy with how I looked and felt on my wedding day. Thank you so much Lindsay!!!

She was amazing and would absolutely recommend her to everyone. She really did make me shine and gave me the look that I was looking for, but even better.

I loved working with Lindsay. She did an amazing job on my bridal party. She is very nice to work with and understand the stress you are under and she not only does a great job on doing your make up but she also helps you stay calm and relax. I absoluty loved my make up. It was everything I asked her and recieved so many complements.

Finding Lindsay and having an initial consultation with her resulted in a huge exhale for me. Every bride wants to know they will look their best on their wedding day. Her expertise and calming demeanor combined to create a stress-free experience and a beautiful bride.
I had a very small wedding, and Lindsay was the only person with me before the wedding. We made a makeup change from our original plan with no problem. She kept me on an even keel, zipped me up and off we went!
Look no further. She's the one!

There are not enough words that can express my gratitude for Lindsay's work on my wedding day. Absolutely, the BEST! I would not have changed a thing (and that is saying a lot). I would recommend her over and over and over again. My mom and MIL are already talking about setting up another appointment.

Lindsay did an incredible job. Professional, experienced, and a great personality. She was on top of things and her demeanor was so calm and collected, it was just the right addition to the big day. This was my second marriage and I used to model years ago, Lindsay managed to give me the most beautiful look I've ever had!

I planned my Tampa wedding from afar, in Texas. And after going for trials with three other makeup girls, where I left looking orange; overdone; not like myself, at all, I found Lindsay...the week of my wedding!! She made herself available that Thursday before for a trial run, and I booked her before my mascara was even dry. She listened to what I wanted for myself, my bridesmaids and the overall look and feel for my wedding. The day of, Lindsay started plenty early to accommodate all of us, and set up at where we got our hair done to make our prep efficient and stress free. She finished nine ladies more than an hour ahead of when we needed to leave for the venue. I looked like a more polished version of myself, and my photos came out flawless! I can't recommend her enough!!

Lindsay was my life saver after another MUA unprofessionally canceled just weeks before my wedding. She was recommended by my planner and I am SO glad I used her! While the cancelation caused stress at first, I can't imagine my wedding day without Lindsay. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so as she is the consummate professional and has impeccable taste! Lindsay fit me in quickly for a trial, listened to my vision, tweeked the look along the way and truly stuck to the "look" I wanted for my wedding day. I had no stress the day of because I knew she would be there and I would look the way I had envisioned! She did an amazing job the day of, my make up lasted flawlessly through a very long, very rainy day and I have consistently gotten compliments on it! Two thumbs up and 5 stars for Lindsay!

I worked with both Lindsay (for my engagement photo shoot) and Ashley (for a trial and my wedding day). They were both amazing. They were very nice and did an excellent job on my make up. Additionally, a few of my bridesmaids decided last minute to have their make up done professionally. I called Ashley the day of and she very happily arranged her schedule to accommodate my bridal party. Both Lindsay and Ashley were fun and helped me enjoy my "bridal experience". I found the prices to be reasonable (especially when I shopped around) and they were very easy to work with, flexible, and listened to my feedback after the trial and adjusted my make up so it was exactly what I wanted! I highly recommend working with this company!

Lindsey was wonderful! I would definitely recommend her to any bride.

Excellent! Lindsay is the best makeup artist. She did my makeup for my wedding and it was perfect. I dont have the best skin and she made it look flawless. I would recommend her to anyone. I will use her again anytime I need my makeup done! Lindsay is so nice and she will give her honest opinion about what would work best for you (which is especially nice for those that do not wear a lot of makeup and are not sure what they want). She uses the best makeup and it stays on all day and night!

This was NOT airbrush, which I LOVED!!! I wasn't ever glossy, I didn't have clogged pores, and the makeup was of high quality. They were very professional in their attire and presentation.
I didn't have Lindsay, but I had Ashley. Ashley did a wonderful job on our make-up. We only had a few people booked, but she was able to take on whomever wanted their makeup done. The makeup looked so gorgeous, I had many compliments!
I thought the price was a little high. I got the package where it included the consultation, day of makeup, after ceremony touch-up, and after picture touch-up.

After a few failed attempts to find the right make-up artist, I came across Lindsay's name and contact information on the Internet. I immediately started browsing her website and everything I saw, and read, was extremely promising. I became more and more excited realizing this could be another opportunity to "meet the right person." My previous experiences left me a bit wary and, with little time before the wedding, I was a bit on edge. I cannot tell you how relived I was when I met her. She asked all the right questions and presented me with options that she also actually delivered. She was friendly, professional, and what impressed me the most, she was extremely confident in what she was doing and that inspired me with trust and calm. She loves her job and it shows through her results. I have never felt as beautiful as I did they day of my wedding, and it was all because of her.

Lindsay did a great job in bringing out my natural features. My make up looked wondering the day of my wedding! I looked like me - just a dolled up version of me. I had a some issues with my eye lashes, but overall was very pleased.

I was recommended by a friend to contact Lindsay Does Makeup for my wedding makeup, and I it was one of the best wedding-planning decisions I made! I had Ashley (one of the members of the LDM team) do my makeup for the big day and words cannot express how lovely she was as a person, and how INCREDIBLE my makeup turned out! I felt like a stunning bride -which is how EVERY bride needs to feel on their wedding day! -and you wouldn't believe the compliments I got from everyone at my wedding. Even my photographer commented on how gorgeous my makeup was when he was editing our wedding pictures! :)
I would recommend LDM to ANY bride looking for the absolute perfect wedding makeup. The people are wonderful, and the service is outstanding.
