"Nina made me feel like a princess for my wedding day. With all the excitement and commotion involved with getting ready for the ceremony, Nina totally went with the flow and worked her magic like the pro she is, making it so much fun at the same time. I've never felt more beautiful."

"When Nina did my make-up for my engagement pictures she presented herself with professionalism and an easy going personality. Here professionalism showed by the way she worked with me to give me the look I wanted. Her easy going personality made me feel very comfortable. All of Nina’s qualities helped me feel even more beautiful on my special day. It would not have been be same without her." "

"I had Nina do my makeup for both my bachelorette party as well as my wedding day . I was more than pleased with how my makeup turned out. I loved it! Not only did I love how I looked but I was super impressed with her professionalism, cleanliness and the products she used. She came to my house with her supplies and everything was very neat& CLEAN! Very important to me!"
"She also took her time with me and made sure I was happy with the results. In the past a problem I have when I've had my makeup done elsewhere is the next day I will surely have a couple breakouts. However this did not happen with Nina. I don't know to attribute it to the products she uses or the fact that everything was super clean or just luck but either way, I was happy! I looked and felt gorgeous AND my makeup stayed on all night for Both festivities! !! I would not hesitate to recommend Nina and her services. As a matter of fact I already have." "

"I hired Nina to do my makeup for my sons wedding in January 2014. She arrived at my home at our appointment time and was ready to start right away. After showing her what the dress looked like, she had her colors for me in mind and set her things up to start applying my makeup. She was very gentle with her work and I was very relaxed while she applied everything. The transformation was amazing and I felt so great at the wedding. I would so recommend her and would have her do my makeup again for special occasions which may come up. I have known Nina for years and find her to be talented and dedicated as well as personable."
"Nina was the best makeup artist I could ask for! For my trial, we discussed the types of looks I loved and she made me up beautifully for my bachelorette party. I am a perfectionist and Nina made my makeup look flawless - I felt so pretty! On my wedding day, Nina did the most amazing job with my makeup, as well as handling the makeup for my mom and sisters. She enhanced everyone's natural beauty while making everyone look so glamorous. Our wedding guests told my family how beautiful they looked all night - and we have Nina to thank! I got a few compliments too :) The makeup lasted all night. Nina uses the best products and I now swear by airbrush foundation and false lashes. The best part about working with Nina is her wonderful personality - we had so much fun with her and she put everyone at ease. Nina made my wedding day stress-free, and that is no easy feat! I highly recommend Nina for any special event, but especially a wedding - her prices are fair, she is incredibly easy to work with, and you are guaranteed to have a great time getting your makeup done!"

As much as you wish your wedding day will be all rainbows and unicorns, it is a very stressful event. Spectacular, but stressful. There are a lot of balls in the air and many people trying to get your attention. There is very little that feels solidified that day, but if you have Nina Trader as your make-up artist, she will take a lot of that stress away because you know she will do an excellent job and provide a little sanity, love and fun in a hectic morning. My experience with Nina was nothing short of outstanding! We did a trial run that was possibly one of the most fun days I had all year and her laughter and guidance was perfect. The day of my wedding I went in a different direction than our trial, asking for something a little softer and less dramatic, she listened to EXACTLY what I wanted and executed it perfectly. She communicated beautifully, asking all of the right questions, and made everyone look stellar. I know it is hard to imagine, but my make-up lasted all day. Even my eyelashes lasted into the next morning! Anyone that has ever had make-up done knows that this is a difficult task to accomplish. I looked like a better version of myself, but still the person that my husband wanted to see walk down the aisle. The week before was incredibly stressful and I got 4 hours of sleep the night before my wedding and yet, Nina made me look like I was well rested and completely calm. She gave me the boost of confidence I needed as I sat in her chair and listened to her talk. She is not only an outstanding make-up artist, but she is a joy to have there on your wedding day. You need people that understand what it is like and take responsibility to make you look your very best. Nina does that. She made us look happy, healthy and beautiful, exactly how you should look on your wedding day. She is worth every penny and more and I could not have been happier!
