Ketrena was super nice, and she helped me get the natural look that I wanted for my engagement pictures. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing their makeup done!

Ketrena was so key in helping to make the start of my wedding day as stress free as possible! She was able to work her schedule around so that she could meet me at my location, the minute I saw her setup and brands that she uses I knew that I was in great hands! Her demeanor and confidence put me at ease she was able to create the exact look I was going for without even having had a trial run beforehand. She also got done so quickly she even had time to take care of a few of my bridesmaids as well, then to top it off she gave me a gift as a thank you! I will definitely be referring her to all my friends and will definitely be using her services again in the future....thank you Ketrena

Ketrena was AWESOME! She did most of the bridesmaids and all of the other ladies in the wedding. She was VERY VERY VERY reasonable for makeup in Charleston and traveled to our site. The makeup looked WONDERFUL!

From start to finish Ketrena was amazing! She was flexible and accommodating by allowing me to change my appointment to a later time on new year's eve and came to the hotel I was staying at. She confirmed the appointment beforehand and appeared on time. She was very friendly and extremely professional. While she gave me options, she also made suggestions. In the end she had a clear vision and delivered! I was traveling out of state for the holidays and found her by doing some research. It was hard to find makeup artists in SC that work on women of color so when I found her I was overjoyed. The first thing I noticed was that her makeup was on point so I knew she would understand my skin tone and type. I also checked out her gallery and liked the work she did on others. When I reached out to her she responded quickly which I appreciated. She also called me to clarify/confirm the services I wanted in advance. She worked very quickly within my time constraints and was very friendly. I would highly recommend her and definitely use her again should I visit SC. I lost count as to how many compliments I received that night! Now, I'm just trying to figure out a way to take her everywhere I go! I absolutely love her!!

My wife hired Ketrena to do the bridal and bridesmaid makeup for our wedding day. My wife found Ketrena very easy to work with, extremely responsive, and experienced. She showed up early to set up before the bridal party arrived and did a great job with everyone's makeup. The bridesmaids loved their look and my wife felt extremely confident and beautiful on her wedding day thanks to Ketrena. Our wedding was a destination wedding, so she was not able to do a trial before the wedding day, but Ketrena offered this service for free. Ketrena is an extreme value for the quality of the work and the bridal party found her very pleasant to work with. Ketrena even stayed through the wedding ceremony (which was delayed by 30 minutes) so that she could do touch ups on everyone's makeup before the bridal party photos. This was far and above what she was asked to do for us and we couldn't be happier with our experience.
