Kelly was absolutely incredible. She was recommended by a friend and she did mine and all my bridesmaids makeup. She was professional, sweet, and our make up was amazing! She was so good my sister used her for her wedding. I couldn't have been happier and I highly recommend her!! More...

Im not sure where to start my experience with Make-up by Kelly Williams.  First I want to say that she responded to my text very quick and was able to give an estimate as well as an appointment. She's very profesional and and welcoming. Kelly did my makeup for a wedding I was attending. I wasn't in the wedding I was just a guest but I wanted to look my best. My makeup was natural and she made me look so beautiful. I received so many compliments throughout the night and even the pictures looked amazing. She does airbrush. I text and read through about 5 makeup artist but Kelly's profile, resume, portfolio is so impressive.  After reading  everyones I decided to go with Kelly.  I made the right choice. I'm was very satisfied. I will be recommending her to family and friends. Thank you Kelly. See you soon! More...

Kelly Williams is a rockstar! I hired her for my wedding day on October 20 in Santa Barbara...for myself and my bridesmaids...all 8 of them, plus my mom! Kelly started around 9am...and was completely done by 1:30pm...including last application!

Her soft, lovable personality was super calming...and fun as we were all getting ready. Her smile is infectious and just makes everyone feel super happy.

I swear, my make-up was flawless. I don't have our professional pictures yet...but in all the pictures I've seen so far...I look like I am glowing...and it looks like me :)

I am super grateful and recommend her for your wedding or event. I feel fortunate that she is LA based...so I can see her again pretty easily.

Thank you Kelly for making October 20th such a fabulous day that I will never forget!!

Kelly is absolutely AMAZING!!! She did the makeup for me and my entire bridal party on my wedding day. My bridal party was made up of a group of exceptional women with all different skin types and tones. Kelly made everyone look natural and flawless....very fitting for the occasion!! I had a large bridal party and Kelly was able to handle all of their makeup with ease and stayed right on schedule which reduced a lot of stress for me! I would HIGHLY recommend Kelly whether you are looking for a natural look, or a more dramatic look. She does it all!!!! Thank you Kelly!! More...

Thanks so much Blake!! The pleasure was all mine!! xooxo

Kelly did my makeup for my September 2014 wedding, as well as the makeup for my mom and bridesmaids. She was beyond fantastic! I'm never really a fan of people doing my make up- it's either too much, too little or I never look like myself and/or I end up adding touch ups myself. I LOVED the way Kelly did my makeup, I felt amazing and I looked myself (just more fabulous!) in person and in my pictures which is what I wanted! My mom and bridesmaids raved for days about how much they loved their makeup! Another positive was that Kelly did all of our makeup (10 people total) on schedule. As a bride, you will learn how important it is to stay on schedule for pictures and the ceremony. I would absolutely recommend Kelly for weddings and any special occasion! More...

Kelly is everything you want in a makeup artist on your big day: exceptionally talented, flexible, masterful at a variety of looks AND wonderful to be around! One of the greatest luxuries of my job for the past 10 years is being able to have Kelly do my makeup daily and for red carpet events. I've gone through many makeup "phases" and Kelly is able to execute my vision, offer suggestions and help me feel my best every time. Her all around positive attitude and calming spirit are also greatly appreciated, especially while getting ready for more stressful shows or events.Kelly is truly a joy and beauty in EVERY WAY! -Megan Henderson, KTLA Morning News (Written from my mother's Yelp account because I don't have one) More...

Kelly is the best make up artist there is. She did my entire wedding party and my sisters' wedding too!  I tried so many artists and was super unhappy. A friend recommended Kelly so I gave her a shot. Kelly was amazing. She knows how to do a totally natural look or a total glam look depending on what you are looking for. She was very professional and kind and reasonable! She also was very accommodating and super easy to work with. I would use her again in a heartbeat. I only wish I could do my own makeup like her everyday. Thank you Kelly for making me look and feel like a princess. Don't hesitate-hire her now if you want to look amazing and have amazing pics!!

I enjoy every minute of creating a beautiful makeup. My passions are beautiful eye shadow regimes and flawless skin application. I have extensive experience with traditional and airbrush application. I also enjoy consulting and building makeup kits. I am an artist through and through and base my creations on creating images from the inside out!

Your clients should choose me because I have over 20 yrs of experience as a make up artist. I am an artist that wants my clients to feel comfortable with how they look. I am an artist that is familiar with lights and darks, highlights and lowlights, color coordination, and illusion creation. I am an artist that will always make sure their client is completely satisfied with my work. My goal is for the client to feel comfortable, happy, and beautiful in their own skin.
