Wedding Hair & Makeup Aug 25, 2018 I felt gorgeous and confident walking down the aisle.

I am very happy I chose Luminous Beauty for my wedding hair and make-up. I have pixie cut and I liked that Betsy had a dedicated option for us brides with short hair. Alison did my make up and my bridesmaids' as well as my mother's and mother in law's. She listened to what every one wanted and made sure that the final result was perfect for everyone. I particularly liked the flexibility, when one in my party asked to have additional services done. I liked the numerous pictures of before and after on their website to have an idea of what they can do. Luminous Beauty was very professional, they were at the hotel right on time and made sure to stick to the schedule which lifted a weight from my shoulders. Bottom line, I felt gorgeous and confident walking down the aisle. - Perle Z.

Wedding Makeup Aug 17, 2018 Thanks for making us all feel so pretty!

Betsey is AMAZING and SO KIND! She did such a wonderful job on my Bridal Makeup for my wedding in August. All of the bridesmaids, mothers, and I were very pleased and impressed with all of our makeup done by Betsey and her team members Mary, and Trent!! Thanks for making us all feel so pretty! :) - Tabitha J.

Wedding Makeup June 15, 2018 They’re perfect

Oh man, do I ever love Betsey. I stumbled upon her company while doing research of the Best of the Knot for hair/makeup, and I was SO impressed by her before/after photos of clients with acne and older clients. They looked so much brighter and happier after she had worked with them, which was exactly the vibe I was looking for. I have difficult skin, too, and it was important to me to work with a makeup artist who could handle any issues I might be having on the wedding day. After meeting with Betsey, I booked her for my wedding and raved to everyone who would listen about how excited I was about her. This led my cousin to book Betsey for her wedding, and my first experience having my makeup done with her was fantastic. At my bridal makeup trial, my skin was particularly out of whack, and Betsey recommended some products that changed everything (anyone who has seen her skin knows how INCREDIBLE it is!). By my wedding day, my skin looked great, and the makeup she did was perfect. I felt like the best possible version of myself. Betsey is kind, she takes suggestion well, and her true goal is to make the bride and the rest of the bridal party feel as gorgeous as possible. Her team is friendly, they're prompt, they're professional--let's be honest; they're perfect. As soon as I have another fancy event coming up, she'll be the first call on my list for makeup. My only regret is that I won't see her again sooner! - Carly C.

Wedding Hair & Makeup Oct 11, 2017 One less thing to worry about on your big day!


Betsey and Lacey from Luminous Beauty are incredibly patient, professional and talented. I don’t usually wear makeup, and I went to my makeup trials nervous because I didn’t know what to ask for. I still wanted to look like myself but also like a bride. Betsey made me feel comfortable instantly, and after listening to me babble on about makeup for five minutes, knew exactly what I needed. She made me feel listened to, but she also guided me away from bad choices and gave gentle nudges to be just a little more daring as we designed the perfect look for me. In the end I looked, well, luminous. Not only is Betsey great at designing a look the bride loves, but her customer service is also outstanding. I am having a destination wedding in Nepal, and didn’t know how I was going to get makeup done that matched my coloring and more subtle makeup preferences. Betsey made sure to design a look for me that I could learn to do myself, ordered the products I would need, and taught me how to use them! Her hair stylist colleague Lacey was there for my trials, and whipped my hair into a beautiful, casually curly half-updo so I would look stunning in my engagement photos that afternoon. She is very talented, and it took her less than fifteen minutes to make me look like a 1940s movie star! Book these ladies for your wedding, and you will have one less thing to worry about on your big day! - Amanda P.

Betsey and her team are absolutely wonderful! They are fast and efficient without compromising their quality.

"Betsey came and did my makeup for my wedding and she was fantastic! She did mine, my mothers and my 4 bridesmaids. She did an amazing job with all of us. She was very knowledgeable and knew what would look good on each person! One of my bridesmaids has a fear of people getting close to her eyes and she worked wonderfully with her. Kept it simple and only did what she was comfortable with! I recommend Betsey to every bride!!" - Tasha J.

On-site Engagement Picture Makeup Sept 29, 2016

"I needed someone to do on-site makeup at my house before 9am engagement pictures - not an easy task to find someone that would work in someone's house AND arrive at 8am! Thankfully I found Betsey Mckenzie of Luminous Beauty LLC - and she was willing to meet my list of needs at a very reasonable price! She did great work and was very friendly! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for on-site makeup artists for photographs, or events!" - Aly P.

"My Ma' and I hired Betsey for a wedding last weekend and let me tell you, this woman is the best in the business. We really didn't know what to expect as I have never had my makeup professionally done and my mom had only had bad experiences but here walks in this gorgeous lady, all in black with suitcases of makeup and I was just shocked. Betsey is extremely professional and not only does she do incredible work but she is knowledgeable about everything that she does; half the fun was just listening to her stories! My advice is if Betsey is in your area, hire her! She made our experience, fun, relaxing and a solid 15 out of 10; it doesn't get better than Betsey." - Adrienne U,

"Betsey trialed make-up for the bride and one bridesmaid before the wedding. There was a sensitive skin issue to manage and decisions regarding "look". Her ideas and knowledge were a great comfort. She is skilled and accommodating and uses an excellent quality product. Betsey is also hyper aware of cleanliness and sanitation. We were so pleased that we booked her immediately for the wedding. 

She traveled to our wedding preparation site and was ready to professionally apply make-up for 6+ women by 6am. We looked FABULOUS all day. We started our day at 6am and didn't leave the wedding dance until midnight. We were not once concerned about reapplication and the only thing that was needed was lipstick after we ate. We all looked fresh for every aspect of this day. I have never felt so good or confident.

I wish I had found Betsey sooner. I will most definitely use her again for special occassions and for my next bio photo for work. I will also use her to teach me application skills for personal use." - Rayette L.

"Betsey did my make-up for my wedding, along with my 2 bridesmaids and mom. Since I live out of state I was worried I was going to have a difficult time dealing with stuff like hair and makeup. Betsey made it so simple, got back to me promptly, and really made the whole experience absolutely wonderful. She was on time the day of, and such a joy to work with on a day that could have been extremely stressful. I would give her 6 stars if it was possible!!" - Ashlyn F.

Teenage girls can be extremely picky, and my daughter was absolutely ecstatic on the outcome! Ms. McKenzie is a wealthy of knowledge not only as a make up artist, but she also extremely helpful with skin care products as well.

"We hired Betsey to do our makeup for my friends wedding. She was super helpful and fun to be around. We actually did our trial run before heading to Vegas for the bachelorette party and was pleasantly surprised that the makeup stayed for over 48 hours in the vegas heat!

For the actual wedding day we threw in another girl to get her makeup done and she was completely OK with it. She was professional and make us look awesome. The entire day/night everyone kept complementing us on how great we looked.

Betsey - thanks for being so great and we will for sure be looking you up for makeup lessons once all the wedding stuff dies down! - Nicole, Nicole and Carmen
