Gina P. "I found LaVonne on wedding wire. I was most impressed by the before and after photos of her clients makeup. I had trials elsewhere and they did not compare to LaVonne's work. She is so professional and friendly. The price is a little pricey but you get what you pay for. It was definitely worth it! I was complimented all night and was asked if I had re applied my makeup during my reception because it looked flawless the entire day! She was so funny and approachable. I definitely recommend this makeup artist to anyone having a special event!"
Katherine K. "I knew one of the vendors I wanted to splurge on for my wedding was a professional makeup artist. A simple Google search for makeup artists in my area turned up LaVonne. I admittedly stalked her on her Instagram and Facebook pages for months – her work is incredible! Booking her is a decision I absolutely do not regret in the slightest! LaVonne offers celebrity level makeup artistry! And she’s self-taught! How incredible is that?! I worked for years through college and into my early 20s at cosmetic counters and I like to think of myself as pretty good when it comes to applying makeup, but LaVonne’s skills are far superior to mine!
I knew she’d make me look amazing, but I was blown away at her work. I showed her a few photos of my inspiration I had saved on Pinterest, and without hesitation she said, “I can do that. No problem!” and went right to work. She did use false lashes on me – which I have had horrible experiences with in the past, but the ones she chose and her application was amazing – full, magazine-worthy lashes that actually looked like the belonged to me! When she was done my skin was flawless, my eyes were perfection and she chose the perfect pink lip to compliment it all. Not to mention – my makeup lasted all night! She finished my application around 4:30 p.m. and our wedding went on until 12:30 a.m., with my new husband and I not getting to the hotel until around 1:30 a.m. I was so sad to remove my lashes and wash my face because it looked as fresh as when she put it on – lasting through every happy tear, every bite of food, every sip of drink and every dance on the dance floor.
LaVonne was worth every penny! Do not hesitate to book her – she will make you look like the best version of yourself!"
Tiffany M. "LaVonne did the makeup for the entire bridal party, mother-of-the-bride, and mother-of-the-groom for my sister's wedding. LaVonne was a complete pro from start to finish. It was easy to book her. On the big day, she arrived exactly on time. She quickly adapted to the space we had and found a good spot to set up. She worked with each person to make her look her best. And she had a great attitude despite the major flurry of activity going on around her (dogs, groomsmen, hair person, other family members...). I would highly recommend LaVonne for any event."
Orletta M. "LaVonne's makeup artistry is "FANTABULOUS!" I used LaVonne's makeup services for my wedding on April 29, 2012. She did my makeup, as well as, my mom's and bridesmaids.
My makeup was flawless and lasted all night. It was not "cakey" and didn't feel or look like I was wearing a lot of makeup. LaVonne enhanced my natural beauty. I didn't even want to take my makeup off at the end of my wedding night. LaVonne is professional, organized and dependable. She shows up on time and is well equipped to fit your makeup needs and desires. If you need makeup for any occasion, choose LaVonne!"
THE BEST COMPLIMENT YOU CAN GIVE IS A
Cassandre C. "I can't say enough good words about LaVonne's services to use for my wedding. Her professionalism and her eye for makeup application is wonderful. She did the makeup application for me, my mother and my maid of honor and I can't tell you how many comments were made about how beautiful our makeup was. She was able to hear my requests and understand my vision for what I wanted as a bride and she performed successfully. In fact,
my mother loved her so much that she wants to fly her into Pittsburgh for my sister's wedding next year! Thanks LaVonne for making me beautiful on my wedding day!"
Meredyth H. "LaVonne did an absolutely phenomenal job on myself and my bridal party. She is very talented and super professional. I booked 9 faces for the day of the event; LaVonne and team showed up even earlier than the agreed upon to start time to set up for the day. She stayed on schedule and even had enough to take on another bystander who decided they wanted their makeup down after seeing how everyone else looked. The makeup lasted throughout the day and I couldn't be happier with the final product. My girls looked awesome!! Thanks for everything LaVonne!"
Catherine A. "LaVonne's make up is awesome!!!! She is a little more pricey than some of the other make up artists I looked at but well worth every penny. I am very particular about how my make up is done and this was probably the most important piece of my wedding to me. I am pretty good at doing my own makeup so I NEVER like how other people do it. Her makeup was flawless. The colors she picked complimented everyone. Out of 10, I would give her an 11."
Kisha T. "LaVonne is so talented and her work is absolutely amazing! I hired her as my wedding makeup artist for a party of 11. She worked alone, was on time, well organized, and prepared...everyone looked stunning and no one felt rushed. She enhances your natural beauty...you look like yourself but radiant and flawless. Everyone loved their make up and I received so may compliments at the wedding, and even more from friends viewing pictures on Facebook. I highly recommend LaVonne...trust me you will not be disappointed and I'm not easily impressed. She's the best!!! and affordable."
Claudia B. "LaVonne did an excellent job with my wedding! My bridal party was multiracial (Asian, Black, White) and everyone looked great! She arrived on time and got everyone done within the allotted time, which helped keep us on schedule. I have a tight work schedule and she was willing to work with me timing wise to get my trial done before the wedding. Very professional and she knows her stuff! I didn't have to provide much feedback once I told her what I wanted. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing makeup services and I will most likely use her again if I ever need makeup services in the future."
Margaux K. "LaVonne Coker, makeup artist extraordinaire, arrived at my home at 10am on Saturday morning. From 10am until after 4pm she never sat down. She worked tirelessly to ensure more than 10 women looked absolutely beautiful on Saturday evening. We had makeup in the dining room, mimosas in the kitchen, and a lot of laughs talking around the table. Somewhere in between she managed to switch from makeup artist to wedding guest! I’m grateful for the time and effort she put into my day! LaVonne is extremely talented and has a way of putting you at ease with her sense of humor. You look forward to your conversations with her because you know you’ll feel better for having spent some time with her. Plus, when the minister is commenting on how great the makeup looks, you know you’re lucky to have LaVonne."
Megan Z. "I can honestly say that hiring LaVonne to do my makeup for my wedding day was one of the best decisions I could have made. I wish she could do my makeup everyday! She made me feel comfortable and I absolutely LOVED everything about my makeup. She has also done my makeup for two other weddings and I loved my makeup every single time! I have recommended her to anyone that I know getting married because she is simply the best out there!"
