Shasta Hankins is one of the few make-up artists that has a 5 star rating on Wedding Wire, so I thought she would be an ideal addition to the Apple Brides repertoire! She provides on-site make-up applications for entire bridal parties and uses the airbrushing method (which I am a HUGE fan of). When the day of the wedding comes there is something really comforting about your stylists coming to you. It means you can have a glass of bubbly and just relax…something you will definitely appreciate on the day. Shasta also provides free consultations to run through your ideas and go over pricing , etc. Her packages also include a 2 hour trial run and day of the wedding with travel.
Here are a couple of photos from Shasta’s portfolio.
I e-mailed Shasta for information and she said she used to work at the Make-up Studio and even remembered me from when I was there for my wedding…I was impressed! She also said that she did the make-up for the STUNNING Arbor Crest wedding I featured a couple of weeks ago. She seems professional and attentive, and now that I know I have sort of worked with her before…I can vouch for that!
Reviews from Wedding Wire.
“Shasta is wonderful to work with. She cost me about half of what most makeup artists cost. And she does a better job. She took her time listening to me and what I wanted for my special day. I have had makeup done by artists before, and it didn’t look as good. Shasta is very professional, funny, and easy to relate to. She came to my wedding site, she gave me a preview at my house. I would recommend her to anyone! On my wedding day, it was hot and I was actually sweating at one point of the day, my makeup stayed perfect through it and my pictures prove it! I am so glad I found her for my special day. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!”
“Shasta Hankins was the makeup artist I used for my wedding on 3/28/2010. She was so friendly and professional throughout the whole experience. She took the time to do a detailed consultation, in addition to a full run through. She had to travel a couple of hours to our wedding locale and she was there early and fully prepared! The makeup was flawless and it stayed on all day. She was very respectful of what my preferences were while at the same time balancing her knowledge to make sure the end result was totally my style, but flawless. She was very cognizant of how to make the makeup look the best for the photography as well and had tons of wedding experience to draw from. I have never had so many compliments in my whole life! I would highly recommend her to anyone I know. One of my best vendor decisions. Thanks Shasta!”
“Shasta is great! She really listens to what you want and gave me great advice regarding how to “prep” my face leading up to the wedding. She is really down to earth, but is very professional at the same time. I’ve already recommended her!”
