“Charity was so considerate and made sure I was getting exactly what I wanted. During my bridal trial run she was willing and excited to try every idea I had and explain how things would go. On my wedding day she was excited with me and helped the makeup part of that day feel extra fun! She knew how to make the makeup last and look great in pictures all day!”
Katie Drew Burns, Bride
"Charity makes you feel comfortable, listens intently to execute what you want and very much respects feed back. I never wear makeup, lip balm is the extent of what I wear. I looked gorgeous and my face could breathe. If you are looking for a makeup artist for your big day I highly recommend her. She's fun, professional and gosh darn it, people love her. Thank you Charity!"
Kaila Smith, Bride
“Charity is the best makeup artist I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She recommends colors and products with great ease and based on your skin tone/type and budget. I first met her while she was working at Sephora, and only went back to the store to see her! She is a true pleasure to work with. You will feel like the most beautiful you after working with her.”
Jessica Buchberger, Client, Bride
“Charity did the make-up for my bridesmaids and for me on my wedding day. I had seven bridesmaids… No, like really, SEVEN. PLUS me. Also, my wedding was about an hour and a half outside of Minneapolis. Charity knew all of this before agreeing to do the make-up and still said ‘yes’.
Charity did everything a bride-to-be could hope for — she scheduled a pre-wedding meeting with a couple of my bridesmaids to finalize the make-up for the day; she showed up early to the wedding location (before me if I’m remembering correctly) ensuring that I wouldn’t stress over where she was or when she was coming; she waited patiently the morning of while my crazy wedding party figured out where to go, when to go, and how to do it; and, in the midst of all the chaos, she was wise enough to take her time and work deliberately on each woman.
I could not have been happier with the way I looked on my wedding day. The make-up was exactly what I wanted and exactly what I envisioned. Charity was professional, enthusiastic, and a real calming presence in the chaos of the day. I would recommend her for any event — but I would be remiss if I didn’t especially recommend her for your wedding day. She knows that it’s not about making you look like somebody you’re not. Rather, it’s about highlighting the beauty that you are.”

“Charity did such an amazing job on my wedding makeup. She is very talented. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day. She really helped make it special. She listened to what I wanted and also made helpful suggestions which led to the perfect result. I couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thank you so much Charity for sharing your gifts.”
Lauren Bakken, Bride
"Charity, thank you for your services as a make-up artist. You are so talented and it was a blast having you behind the scenes."
Samantha Krage, Bride
“Charity provided me and mom with excellent make-up services for my wedding on June 14, 2014. She was punctual and worked quickly to do our make-ups. I knew Charity was going to be awesome on my wedding day as she hit a home run with my make-up and what I was exactly looking for on my initial trial test. Her pricing was very affordable and she even gave me advice for lip stains, as I was worried about the kiss and having my husband wearing such lip color. Charity you were phenomenal, you have an amazing personality and I will certainly use your services again. I highly recommend Charity! Thanks again for your contribution to a perfect wedding day.”
Jody-Kay Peterson, Bride
“Charity did an amazing job! She was so relaxed, calm and patient not only during the consultation but on the wedding day as well. She came by during the consult and went along with a photo that I wanted to look like. After I decided that it didn’t suit me, she told me what would work. On the wedding day I left it up to her and it was perfect. People were specifically commenting on how great my makeup looked. And even now, months later, I’m still being reminded by people of how nice my makeup and my bridesmaids’ makeup looked. My makeup also held from getting ready all the way until after the dance which is perfect because with the amount of photos you take, you want to look flawless for as long as possible!
Thanks again, Charity. I’ll be recommending you to anyone!”
Erin Porter, Bride
“Charity takes the time to listen to what you want and adds her professional insight to make it even better than you imagined. She was on time, patient, and efficient while working on five different women for my cousin’s wedding. The makeup looked flawless and natural while still looking glamorous.”
Angela Marie, Bridesmaid
“Charity is AMAZING!!! I had the best experience with her doing my engagement photos. She is incredibly talented and did absolutely beautiful work, listening carefully to exactly what I wanted. She also gave great advice when I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted in certain areas. In addition, she has such positive energy and immediately made me feel comfortable. I had no idea I would have that much fun having my makeup done! I can’t write enough positive things about Charity as a makeup artist and a person. I can’t wait for her to do my wedding makeup!!!”
Emily Urlacher, Bride
“She is very willing to produce the make-up that the individual desires! Charity has an upbeat, fun personality that anyone would feel comfortable around! She is very talented with the work that she produces– including her picture art. I really enjoyed having her do my make-up.”
Rachel Lindgren, Bride
“Charity has done my makeup on several occasions and I've always absolutely loved it! As a fellow makeup artist myself I can be a little bit picky and particular and how my makeup looks. Charity is one of the only people who had filled in my brows and I didn't need to touch them up after. Which means alot, I have very light, sparse brows so they are hard to shape and define. Whenever someone else does my makeup I almost always need to tweak them a little. This girl is very talented and I would recommend her to anyone if you need your makeup to look perfect for any special event !!!!!”
Jen Wittenburg, Makeup Artist
“Charity is an incredibly talented makeup artist! When I was in high school Charity did my makeup for a school dance I attended. Without having great makeup knowledge myself Charity took to her expertise and created a great look for my fun night! Not only does she do great makeup work she is also a joy to work with and be around. I have seen many of her current creations and her talent is impeccable! I would recommend Charity to everyone! She rocks!!”
Alissa Swain, Prom
“Charity did my makeup for a fashion show I modeled in & it looked spectacular. She was very kind and it was a pleasure having such quality makeup done. I highly recommend her.”
Tina King, Model
“I have had wonderful experiences with Charity being my makeup artist. I have watched as she has turned me into a regular person to a stellar model with her tools including makeup and tools to manipulate the look of my eyebrows, lips and even hide acne. She is also a wonderful person who served with a smile and a positive attitude. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a well done job. Ms. Charity can turn an average Joe like myself into a man bursting with confidence because after she finishes applying makeup and the other tools of the trade, you will like how you look. What is her secret?”
Paul Delvecchio, Model
“Charity has been doing my makeup as far back as my high school homecoming and prom and continued to be there for me through recent family weddings. Every time she has gone beyond my expectations. She can take terribly described ideas of what you think you’re looking for, and turn it into an amazing piece of art that brings out your unique beauty. She can also take a picture or idea and turn it into reality. I have modeled for her for a few trial makeup sessions, one with a fairy style and another with vampire effects. Both of these sessions have turned out greater than I could have imagined. Her professionalism even with a close friend like myself is above and beyond. I will be looking forward to the day she will do my makeup as well as my family’s for my own wedding day.”
