One of my favorite wedding vendors! – I met Helen Fong of Makeovers by Helen 3 months prior to my August wedding of this year. She was a referral from my friend who also used Helen's makeup services for her own wedding back in 2007. Since I hardly ever wear makeup, I totally trusted Helen and her professional advice on what colors would look good on me for my wedding day! At the trial, she was patient and offered some really good suggestions which of course, I also agreed with. What also made me so comfortable working with Helen was her knowledge of skincare. In addition to applying my makeup, she also recommended skincare tips prior to the wedding. This was very helpful to me since my skin was breaking out due to the stress of planning the wedding.
On the day of my wedding Helen arrived on time and was a delight to work with as she was since the first day I met her for my trial. My makeup looked wonderful and did not feel heavy or sticky at all. Also, Helen included a complimentary touch-up kit for me which I hardly used, however, the oil blotting sheets came in handy on a hot August day!
I have another friend whose wedding is next year and I will definitely be recommending Helen to do her makeup as well. I can't wait to attend my friend's wedding. I am sure she will also hire Makeovers by Helen to do her makeup too!
Best make up artist ever! – I could not have asked for a more helpful, friendly, professional and talented make up artist than Helen Fong. I live in Baltimore but was getting married in Boston where I didn't know any vendors in the area. I found her website and loved the photos of her work. I thought the make up looked flawless and very natural which was the look I was going for on my wedding day. I sent her an email and she contacted me right away. She was very professional, friendly and helpful. She was very responsive between the time I contacted her and the day of my wedding. She was very patient and flexible with my schedule since I was coming from out of town. What also attracted me to her service was that she comes to the bride's location on their wedding day and even during the trial run, which was very convenient. I had every amount of confidence that she would do a great job with my make up and my bridal party's make up and she lived up to every expectation. I highly recommend Helen Fong.
Highly Recommended – I met Helen at a makeup counter at Macys. As she was doing my makeup, she mentioned that she had her own business doing makeup for weddings. After seeing her work, I immediately asked if she was available for the date of my wedding. Even though my wedding hasn't happened yet, I'm so excited to have Helen as my makeup artist for my day. She's very detail oriented and she works with you in the time before your special date to make sure your skin is as beautiful as can be.
Great artistic technique – I had the occasion to work with Helen at a wedding at the Hyatt Harborside.hotel. The women in the bridal party were all beautiful to begin with but all were worthy of the red carpet when Helen was done with them. I get in very close in some of my bridal portraits and Helen's soft tonalities are totally natural. Unlike some paint jobs I've seen that look like they were put on with finger paints... :-)
I recommend her to all my brides.

Boston's Best Make Up Artist – I had an awesome experience with Helen. She did my make up for my wedding (along with my Mom and sister). I got soooo many compliments on my make up during the wedding and everyone said she did a fantastic job drawing out my features (I never really wear make up). Even people at my office who saw the wedding pictures even noticed my make up and said I looked fabulous. Maybe I should have her do my wedding every morning??
I loved the fact that she listens to what you want and are comfortable with and will recommend things as well. She is very professional and wonderful to talk to. I met Helen through my sister (Helen also did my mom, my sister, and my make up for my sister's wedding as well).
I highly recommend having Helen do your make up if you would like to look fabulous on a special occasion.
I have already recommended Helen to all of my friends when they get married.
Excellent Wedding Make-Up Artist – Helen did my make-up and my mom?s make-up for my wedding, and she did an amazing job. She knew exactly what colors would go well on me and also look great in photographs. Helen?s services go beyond just the make-up trial and the day of the wedding. She checked in with me in the weeks and days leading up to the big day, giving me tips on how to take care of my skin and help me look my best. Helen is professional, friendly, and really cares about her clients. I liked her work so much, that I recommended her to my future sister-in-law who will be getting married next month!
Wonderful Makeover! – I got married recently in Sept. of 07' and Helen did my makeup and her hair stylist did my updo.
My wedding party was quite large, 9 of us. Helen and her crew arrived promptly and did a wonderful job on all of us! Matter-of-fact, we were all finished early and were ready to go! My friend Amanda is getting married this spring and will also be using Makeovers by Helen and her staff as well.
Great make up artist – The fact that I've used Helen many times for my make up needs over the years speak to her experience and how good she is. She first did my make up for an awards ceremony in which I was receiving an award. I liked it so much that I immediately booked her to do my make up for the prom. She came to my house and she even had the foresight to take before and after pictures that I still have to this day. Years later, I recommended Helen to do the make up for my friend's wedding in which I was a bridesmaid. We all looked fabulous. Her prices are reasonable and she will accommodate your schedule.
Wonderful, Professional Service! – I met Helen and the hair stylist that works with her for my trial back in August 2007 for my Nov. 2007 wedding.
Everything that I requested for my hair and makeup at the trial came out so well that I booked them immediately! On the day of my wedding, Helen and her staff arrived early to ensure everything went smoothly.
We all looked great and was very happy with all the results! I would recommend Helen of Makeovers by Helen to any bride who may need her services.
Best Wedding Makeover! – I contacted Helen to do my makeover for my Wedding Day! This was one of the most important days of my live and I wanted to look fabulous. I was looking for someone who will listen and give ideas of what will look best on me. My big fear was the makeup itself I don?t wear make up. I was worried about my skin and how to take care of the make up for 12 hours a least and still look good by the end of the night. Helen was able to find the right look, she did such a great job that I didn?t need to re-touch it at all. I got a lot of compliments on the fantastic job she did. Helen is so easy to work with, I highly recommend her!
