Vermont Makeup Artist
Welcome! My name is Hillary and I am a certified freelance makeup artist based out of Vermont. I specialize in bridal makeup, editorial makeup, prom, and more! My primary focus (and true love) is bridal makeup. My goal on your wedding day is to create a fun, relaxed, and refreshing environment, all while still providing a luxury makeup experience for you. Although my home base is Vermont, I am happy to travel throughout New England and beyond for your makeup needs. I take pride in customizing each makeup look so that you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful. Skin prep to setting spray, I use some of the best professional products on the market.
I frequently work with destination couples, so if you have chosen Vermont as your destination wedding location, I'm happy to help make the booking process smooth, even from states away!
About me: I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Vermont, and found my passion for makeup during my teenage years. Outside of makeup, I enjoy: Hiking, wine tastings, craft beer adventures, horseback riding, and spending time with my fur-kids (two dogs & two cats). I look forward to learning more about you!
Be Bold. Be Beautiful.
Marissa W: Hillary was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process- from my initial inquiry to the wedding day! She was always quick to respond, very organized, and is incredibly talented at what she does! During the trial, she was so helpful in creating the look I wanted and it turned out PERFECT on the big day! I have been in several weddings as a bridesmaid, where many bridesmaids didn't like their makeup but EVERY single girl in my wedding, as well as my Mom, MIL, and Aunt absolutely loved their makeup and felt so beautiful. I highly recommend Hillary to any bride who is looking for someone who is just as thoughtful and caring about your big day, as they are talented!
Abby G: Hillary was an absolute pleasure and delight to work with. I got her name from a friend who got married and couldn’t say enough good things about her. From the moment I first messaged her she was always quick to respond and available to answer any and all questions I had. Myself and my bridesmaids loved how our makeup came out and she made sure we were flawless on my special day. She showed up early and was ready to work as soon as we were ready that day. I couldn’t have asked for a more professional and pleasant experience!!!
Ashley A: Hillary was a doll to work with! I was the maid of honor in a wedding that used Hillary's makeup services - I could not have been more happy with how my make-up came out. It wasn't over the top and screaming omg you look so fake, it didn't look caked on in fact it felt completely natural! I am no make-up artist, so I felt the prices were completely fair and was ever so thankful for saving me the hassle of not being happy with what I am only capable of - bronzer and mascara haha! She rolled with the wedding morning chaos and really engaged with us! She was also amazing with my 7 year old daughter who insisted on having a little something on her face too. A million thank yous Hillary!
Kim F: Professional, supportive, TALENTED, and fun...what any one wants in a person they are hiring on their wedding day. Hillary is great, from the bridal trial to get on the same page about my "day of look", to coordinating and chatting back and forth leading up to my big day. I'd recommend Hillary a million times over and over. She's so knowledgeable and passionate about her products, always bettering her knowledge of her specialty, and she's beyond talented. The proof is in her pictures! Plus, my makeup lasted all day and I didn't even have to re apply lipstick (and there were a lot of kisses!) Plus all of my girls were thrilled with how their makeup turned out, too!
Elizabeth G: Hillary was absolutely great and extremely talented! She did the make up for my wedding with 4 bridesmaids, MOB and MOG. She is very knowledgeable about makeup! She was very accommodating to each girls skin type, color and need. I LOVED my make up for the day and seriously wish she could come do my makeup everyday :)
Will absolutely hire her again in a heartbeat!
Chrystie O: Hillary did my make-up for my wedding, and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. Super friendly, professional, and very talented. She made my daughter cry when she saw the finished product....and that's not easy.
Cayci W: Hillary was SO amazing! Plus she made herself available just a few days before my wedding to do our makeup when the makeup artist I had suddenly couldn't. She saved the day! I wanted a natural look for my wedding and she nailed it! I also loved my bridesmaids makeup as well. I will definitely be hiring Hillary for any future event I have. I wholeheartedly recommend Hillary!
Jordan B: Hillary did an incredible job with the makeup for my wedding! She made me, three of my bridesmaids, and my mom look and feel great. She reached the perfect balance of being done up yet letting a bunch of non makeup-wearing girls feel light and natural, and we couldn't have been happier. Plus, she was a ton of fun to have around while we were getting ready and really caught on to our relaxed vibe! I would absolutely recommend Hillary to any bride looking for a professional and talented makeup artist. Thank you, Hillary!
Christina B: Hillary was great! I was just walking in fashion week and she is definitely on the same level as those MUA's. She was professional, sweet, and talented. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of top notch makeup! Amazing Vermont makeup artist!
Rachel F: Hillary did makeup for my wedding and what she does is an absolute art! I have never felt so beautiful and on your wedding day you should feel nothing but! She was very open to my ideas and offered suggestions of her to enhance the look. She was very responsive to any questions I had and even traveled to Barre! I could not be any happier with her work. I would recommend her to anyone getting married or even just going to an event. This girl is phenomenal!!!
Paige W: Hillary did my makeup for one my best friends wedding’s last month and she did an incredible job! Hillary showed up early and was set up waiting for us promptly! She was 100% stress free and fit in great with our group of bridesmaids! She was very accommodating to everyone’s different look ideas and was great at giving ideas for someone like me who knows nothing about makeup! Would highly recommend to anyone whether you have a wedding, photo shoot, or just a night out with your ladies!
Michelle M: Hillary is AMAZING! She traveled to my home town for my trial and day of make up. She was promptly on time and stayed to get all of my bridesmaids done. She is incredibly talented and makes you feel totally comfortable. She listens to what you envision. Thank you SO much!!!!!!! She did an amazing job.
Julia I: Hillary is a fantastic MUA and wonderful person to work with. She is sweet and definitely cares about keeping all of her products nice. I loved working with her and hope to work with her again!
Shelby B: Hillary has done my makeup on two separate occasions, and both times she was very informative about every product she was using. She is a fun, and professional person and the makeup LASTS!! That's huge if you are looking for a wedding day look, and want to be beautiful through the whole day! Best Vermont Makeup Artist!
Elysha T: Hillary recently did the makeup for my boudoir session clients and she is AMAZING! She is not only meticulous and thoughtful with her process, but she enhances each woman's beauty without going overboard. Plus, she is super fun to work with!
