As a professional beauty artist (and let's be real, enthusiast too), I’m always seeking feedback from past clients whether it be through my own company or assisting another. The most rewarding part of what I do, aside from the creative process of it all, is seeing how my work brings out your inner goddess. Your words help others decide on hiring me as well. And whether the review is 5/5 stars or has constructive criticism, I appreciate it all because it allows me to continually grow as an artist. I love turning my work into an unmatchable experience for my clients. So go on! Read below some great reviews from past clients.
My experience with Meghan Lee and her team were wonderful, I would absolutely recommend Declan + Mae. I would also use her again in the future! Meghan is extremely reliable and corresponds quickly. I booked Meghan for hair and makeup for my engagement photos and she came to my house with everything she needed to get me ready for our photo shoot. We also used Meghan and her two assistants on my wedding day on location and everything turned out so perfect for myself and my bridal party's hair and makeup. Everyone loved the outcomes!
I wanted to thank you for being so professional and doing a great job on our hair and makeup. Everyone loved how it came out! I appreciate you still doing my hair and makeup and even allowing us postpone the wedding day with us. You made what could have been stressful, stress free. I've never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day. So thank you for making me feel my best!!
We used Declan & Mae for our engagement photos and for 7 individuals for our mini-mony. Despite the intimate nature of our events, that did NOT reduce the quality of work or preparedness that Meghan and her second provided. As someone who does not put much effort into hair and makeup, I wanted to look like myself but even better and that was accomplished! I had some inspiration photos which Meghan was able to use but made sure that it was her own and worked for me. She made everyone feel comfortable and was a delight to talk to, or when I wanted to be quiet, she fully respected that. I fully trust her, and in the future, if I need makeup done, I will definitely be using her again.
Meghan & her team did my hair/makeup and my bridesmaids’ hair/makeup for my wedding in May. She was super easy to work with and was flexible and understanding when we had to make some changes. She and her team were so fun to hang out and super sweet. They all did a fantastic job! I was so confident on my wedding day. I would recommend her to anyone!
Meghan and her team did a great job for my wedding day! I had them do the whole bridal party’s hair and makeup, we were very pleased. Meghan is so kind and really listens and cares, I had some issues with my hair and makeup on my wedding day and during my trial, she made it her #1 priority to make me happy
Very relaxing and stress free, from making my appointment to having my hair and makeup done. I absolutely loved the end results and how welcoming she was to have me there. It was a wonderful experience that I will never forget! Thank you so much for being a part of my wedding day experience!
I absolutely loved working with Meghan! She nailed my wedding makeup! It was exactly what I wanted and it turned out beautifully. I told her I wanted a semi-glam look without it being over the top, and she did it perfectly. I felt so pretty on my wedding day. Not only was the makeup perfect, but Meghan was so nice, friendly, and easy to get along with. She didn't pressure me into doing a look I didn't want and really listened to me. She is a pro, and I highly recommend working with her.
Meghan was the most amazing person to work with. Not only is her work stunning, but her personality makes you feel so at ease! I had my hair and makeup done for my wedding along with two moms and 3 bridesmaids - and Meghan and Nicole made all of us look and feel fantastic!! She was great about letting me make little tweaks to the look leading up to the day - which meant the final look was exactly what I wanted. Such a wonderful experience all around.
I can't imagine having a more talented, friendly, and supportive hair and makeup team the day of my wedding! Meghan and her team were willing to give direction to myself and my bridesmaids, but were also very accepting of us having an idea of what we wanted hair and makeup to look like. Meghan welcomed me into her home studio twice to complete my hair and makeup tutorials, which allowed me to feel so much more at ease with her and what I would look like the day of the wedding. To this day, Meghan and I chit chat on social media, making me feel like much more than a client. She is still supportive of me and my bridesmaids when pictures are posted, and that makes me all the more confident in my decision to use her on our special day. Aside from the above positives, Meghan and her team created works of ART on us! Hair and makeup were both flawless all day and night, lasting 10+ hours without issue.
Nicole was amazing!! I had a trial hair and makeup run prior to our March wedding and I decided a month before to change my hair style to a braid. Nicole knocked it out of the park!! Our guest still talk about my hair and my makeup stayed the entire day without smearing. I recommend Declan + Mae- Nicole and Brie were so fun to work with and all my ladies looked amazing too.
Meghan was amazing for my wedding! She used the best products, and my makeup lasted all day, even through the rain. My hair was so cute and braided into a crown. I loved talking to her the morning of, she is so fun and easy to work with. I seriously cannot recommend her enough. On top of her amazing work, she was affordable too! She is truly the BEST!
I used Meghan (Declan and Mae) for my, my mother’s, and my now MIL’s hair and makeup for a Thanksgiving weekend 2020 COVID wedding. I am so grateful to Meghan for working with us after Nashville limited gathersing to 8, prompting our wedding-party-only wedding to become a parents-only wedding. The hair and makeup appointments for the three of us were fun, everyone looked absolutely stunning, and the pictures were amazing. As someone who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup my only ask was that I “look like myself,” and looking at the livestream and photos, I felt like the absolute best person of myself. Thank you Meghan!
The best hair and makeup artist in Middle TN! Meghan was a pleasure to have as our hair and makeup artist for myself (bride), 3 bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride and groom! She was on-time, reliable, and great to work with especially for my wedding which was on a holiday (July 4th 2020). She took precautions and also wore a mask which we all appreciated! We all loved our hair a makeup and were all different skin tones and hair types, so she did an amazing job working with us all and blending to make everything look great!
If you are looking for a hair stylist for your wedding, Meghan is your girl! It's hard to express in words how amazing she is. From my preview session to my wedding day, she was responsive, kind, helpful, and so knowledgeable. And her skills are incredible! At my trial, we did 2 different looks and she perfected both! All of my bridesmaids loved their hair, and they each have such different hair (short, long, thick, thin). Highly highly recommend Meghan!
Hiring Meghan to do mine and my bridal party's make-up was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. My husband and I had to move our wedding and I wasn't even sure if I wanted to hire someone to do my makeup. I contacted Meghan just a few weeks before the wedding, and she was able to fit me into her schedule. She arrived on time (super early in the morning for a brunch wedding), wore a mask the entire time, was easy-going and just a delight to be around. I have never felt more beautiful, and my bridesmaids looked fantastic. Not cake-y, not too dark on the eye make-up, just perfect! Thank you for everything Meghan!!
I was so impressed by my hair and makeup. My hair is very long and very thick so it can be a challenge to get it to do anything. She did exactly what I asked for even though I had no idea what I wanted—she literally read my mind. My makeup was also done so well and lasted the whole day. I cried all day long and my makeup didn’t move once. I did not do a trial run, but I didn’t need it since she did such a good job. My wedding was during Covid-19 time and I felt safe with the additional safety precautions put in place. I will definitely use her again for any future hair or makeup needs.
We LOVED having Declan & Mae do our hair and makeup for our wedding! Meghan was incredibly kind and friendly. I am very particular about my hair, and often am disappointed when it is done professionally, but not with Meghan! She was fantastic and I totally loved my hair and makeup for my wedding day! She also did my wife's hair and makeup, and was so open and supportive and kind toward us. Couldn't recommend her enough and will definitely be calling Declan & Mae for all of our future beauty needs!
Meghan was absolutely amazing to work with. I was a very indecisive bride going back and forth between 2 hairstyles and Meghan was so kind and offered me a second trial for free so that I could be absolutely sure for my wedding day! She also listened very intently to all my plans and schedule for the day and had the appropriate amount of other artists join her the day of the wedding to make sure we were on schedule. She was completely dedicated to me only that morning so it felt like my personal artist. Meghan encourages you to speak openly and honestly during your session to make sure you look how you want to on your big day. Very kind and fun to work with!
Meghan was excellent and so was her team! We had a great trial session for hair and she was very open to finding a look that suited me perfectly. The day of the wedding, her and her team added a fun ambiance during the get-ready part of the day and all of our make-up came out BEAUTIFUL! I would highly recommend Declan and Mae.
Meghan is amazing! She did my trial as well as my day of makeup and everything was perfect. She made sure I had great coverage and the exact look I was going for. I didn’t need any touch ups and everything stayed in place from start to finish. She was easy going and I felt so comfortable the whole time. I would not hesitate to use her for any special occasion make up, I’ll always confidently recommend her and her services!
When working with Declan and Mae, Meghan took the very little direction I was able to provide her (I don’t wear much makeup) with and make me feel beautiful. She picked out my lashes, eye shadow, and made lip color suggestions. I was worried about airbrush foundation looking too heavy, but I’m SO glad I trusted her because it lasted all day and looked great! She was quick to communicate with me when scheduling and was early to prep me for my big day. Highly recommend!
Meghan is absolutely amazing! She did my wedding hair and makeup as well as my 5 bridesmaids. I felt so beautiful! Meghan and her assistant arrived at my wedding venue early and brought everything needed to make all of us feel like a princess. She listened to what we wanted and made it happen! She has a spunky personality and really helped calm my nerves on the biggest day of my life. I can look back at all of the photos from that day and feel great about how we all looked! 10/10 would recommend Meghan for your wedding!
Meghan did an amazing job incorporating the feedback that I gave in our initial session. Everything about my makeup was absolutely perfect on the day of the wedding. I didn’t go to the restroom a single time the entire night, and in photos from the end of the evening, my makeup still looked amazing. Her prices are very fair. She did my entire bridal party’s makeup, too. I can’t thank her enough for making my makeup perfect for my wedding day.
Meghan was amazing! She is so easy to talk to especially let her know exactly how I wanted my hair and makeup done. All my bridesmaids, my mom, and I all got our hair and make up done by her. Everyone looked and felt amazing! All my bridesmaids commented on how much they loved how they looked. I received some many compliments and I looked great in my wedding pictures.
I had 12 bridesmaids, my mother & MIL and of course myself all getting hair and makeup. I was expecting it to be chaotic and rushed but it was anything but! Meghan did my hair and makeup and it was flawless! I usually don't like professional makeup on me but I loved how it turned out and my hair looked amazing. Everyone at the wedding said the girls looked so pretty and we belonged in a magazine. I HIGHLY recommend them and everyone was so happy with how their hair & makeup turned out. If you can, request this company!
I loved working with Declan and Mae for hair and makeup! Meghan is phenomenal at her job. I got so many compliments including one of my friends who just had her bridal makeup trial done and hated her makeup. She saw mine and was so impressed that she wanted Meghan's contact information! Meghan was so much fun to work with for hair as well. She really was able to work with each bridesmaid's vision and hair type to make everyone beautiful! I highly recommend Meghan and Declan and Mae was a great company to work with, responded quickly to emails and put up with my bridezilla requests!
We had Meghan come to our venue to do my makeup as well as my mother and 6 bridesmaids and she did a phenomenal job! We unfortunately got completely soaked while attempting to do pictures but our makeup was spotless!! Our photographer even mentioned whatever she did/used she would highly recommend her again because even after the downpour we were able to dry off some and take a few pictures with our makeup still looking great towards the end of the night!! I'm already talking to one of my bridesmaids to get her to use Meghan for her wedding next year!
I cannot thank Meghan enough for her amazing work on my makeup recently. It was everything I wanted and more and I didn't want to take it off. The effort she put into making me feel comfortable and happy was a real stand out and calmed my nerves so much. So thank you so so much for being so awesome and making me look amazing. Safe to say I'll be back for all my events!!
I really loved Declan and Mae! They were extremely professional and helpful. They responded to emails quickly and answered all my many questions. My hair and makeup was done by Meghan and her assistant was Ashley. They were both so sweet and made the experience fun! They had to come super early to do our hair and makeup for our morning ceremony. They never once complained about the time and were so nice about it! They both did such a fabulous job! My hair and makeup was the best it has ever looked! I looked exactly how I wanted to on our day.
Meghan was my hair & makeup artist and she was amazing!!! Everything from her sweet & welcoming personality, genuine interest in making sure you get exactly what you want, and obviously her cosmetic talent! I am not used to having much done to my hair or face (ever) so I was pretty indecisive, but had a general idea of the look I wanted even if I didn't always know how to describe it. Meghan was able to help with different suggestions and color scheme ideas to match the look I was thinking of, and always left it open and comfortable for me to tell her I wanted anything to be done differently. We did a trial run, but through several emails, I probably could have gone without the trial. That's how comfortable I was with Meghan as an artist. Hair & makeup is expensive to me (as with any wedding-related thing) but truly worth it and you should definitely hire Meghan for your next event!
All of my bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning! I also really love how my look came out and it lasted all day and all night! They were so fun and easy to talk to. They made the whole getting ready process a ton of fun. They also knew how to do everything. Some of my girls wanted dramatic makeup and some wanted more natural and it all turned out amazing. I would highly recommend them for your special day.
I used Meghan's services this weekend for my wedding. She was awesome at my trial run and on the day of my wedding as well. She and her assistant, Erika, did 6 hair/makeups in record time it felt like and they were both so warm and fun! Meghan was very accommodating of my sensitivities to certain products right from the beginning and I felt that myself and my bridesmaids looked our absolute best that day! She's such a cool person with a lot of talent!
Meghan (and I think Nichole) were amazing. My bridesmaids, my mother and I all looked SO beautiful. Not to mention, these ladies were extremely polite, professional and talented. They showed up on time, got us ready in time, didn't ask for a thing (their kits were so well stocked with everything we could've ever needed!) AND they just were a joy to be around. I'm gonna miss working with them. It was one of the best experiences I had with any of my wedding vendors and I'm so grateful.
Meghan is absolutely amazing! She did my makeup (and many other girls) for a huge underwater shoot and absolutely killed it. She took my vague ideas of what I wanted and ran with it to give me the most perfect look! And it held up through almost four FULL hours of shooting underwater. In addition to all that she was so likable and fun to talk to while she was doing the makeup. I couldn't recommend her more!
When I set up my photo shoot ideas, I was happy Kristen Fonville (photographer) was so willing to help me, even if I needed help finding outfit ideas. She was very understanding and willing to work with me, even with me bringing in props. The morning of my shoot, I was kind of nervous. Getting my hair and makeup done with such a treat for me as I hardly ever wear anything. Throwing my hair in a ponytail was my usual thing. But Meghan performed a miracle and transformed me into a gorgeous lady
I cannot express how wonderful Meghan is!! I booked her a couple months ago for my elopement to Butterfly Hollow on May 24, 2018. Just by our emails I knew she was a great person. The day of the wedding, she came to the venue. We had the cabin to ourselves. She asked what I was thinking regarding hair/makeup, showed her some pics and she began. I felt like a princess! Meghan is very talented, sweet and I felt like I made a new friend. We talked, laughed. She helped me with my dress also. Meghan - my fiance, now hubby, said I looked amazing! He loved what you did, and was happy the makeup was natural. He was wowed! Thank you so much for everything, you are wonderful!
Meghan did makeup and hair for my wedding a little over a week ago at the end of April and I could not have been happier! All of us looked like our best selves and she was very open to what we were each looking for. I highly recommend Meghan for any event you want to look and feel your best.
Meghan is fantastic! She did my hair and makeup for my wedding on 9.26.17 and it turned out better than I had envisioned. She is so talented and sweet. I came from FL to get married in TN and I was nervous for nothing about not having a practice run through of hair and makeup. Great communication through email and text.
I want to thank Meghan soooooooo much for my beautiful makeup and all the girls' hair for my wedding on 9.3.17. It was exactly how I pictured and it lasted through the whole night so well! She has such a talent and the girls were raving about it all evening (and guests too)! Thank you especially for doing my mom's hair so pretty--she's always doing it for other people and she thought that was so special! I can't say enough incredible things about Meghan!
I was so lucky to have Meghan as my hair and makeup artist for my wedding on 7.22.17. She was very flexible throughout the whole process. She was able to reschedule my hair and makeup trial for about a week before the wedding when I had to cancel our original appointment, and she totally nailed exactly what I was looking for on the first try! She was also able to find another makeup artist to help out on the wedding day a week beforehand when I wanted to add some additional services for bridesmaids. She was a calm presence throughout the whole wedding day even when I was stressing out. Not only does she do a beautiful job, but she is a really nice person and fun to talk to while you are getting styled!
I want to thank you for doing such an amazing job on ALL three of us. None of us are heavy makeup wearers and you did a fantastic job in keeping us looking natural but making us look flawless and glowing. I can’t tell you how good I felt, it truly was the prettiest I’ve ever felt. And the compliments my mom and bridesmaid received and even people coming up to me personally commenting on how great they looked. That kind of feeling just makes a girl’s day. To both of them that was glamour treatment to have their hair and makeup done and I could tell they felt their most confident. I felt beautiful, which is important to any bride on her wedding day, but the kind of sparkle I saw in their eyes made it even more special because I knew how special they felt. Thank you for your great work and words can’t describe what it meant to me. What you do means a lot to a bride on that day and years down the road in pictures. I love my pictures and I am so happy with the way everything turned out. And please let EYE DO know that I am so grateful they sent you. It was great working with you and very comfortable. Best wishes!
Companies like Eye Do are a talent agency for hair and makeup artists. Most of them do amazing work, but instead of getting to pick from all of their stylist options, they assign your artists to you. I'm sure this normally works out, but unfortunately it didn't work out for me. In my initial trial for my bridal hair and makeup, the artist did not listen to our direction when doing my hair. She did not ask my opinion before she started applying makeup. I tried to suggest my preferences such as having some contouring and she said that she does not do that. I ended up looking like a nude clown. After talking with Jami, she arranged me to work with Meghan, who was a HUGE improvement. She came and did a trial, which overall went much better, and she did my hair perfectly for my bridal shoot, wedding day, and had some amazing eyeshadow for my reception dinner/Sangeet. We had two extra girls come to assist with hair and makeup for bridesmaids and family on the day of the wedding. The makeup girl did a fantastic job and was very friendly. The artist that did everyone's hair did a great job matching my bridesmaids hair, but did not communicate the best when working with my family members who wanted different hairstyles. This company ended up being "ok," but it was a ton of extra stress! After talking with Jamie, she says that the company will now share portfolios of the hair and makeup artists before they are officially assigned to you, which should improve things. However, I still highly recommend going with a company where you get to meet all of the artists beforehand and that you book someone based on her portfolio instead of a makeup talent agency.
Meghan did my hair and makeup and my bridesmaids' makeup starting at 6am on my wedding day morning! She had prepared a detailed schedule to keep us on track with a tight timeline. She got right down to it and I watched her make up my bridesmaids while I waited for my turn. When I saw how beautiful they looked, I was beyond happy. I know how they felt gorgeous, and no one wanted to take their makeup off after the wedding. I loved my hair and makeup! My mom cried tears of joy when she saw me. I loved that I looked like a bride, elegant, but still looked and felt like me. The whole time Meghan was funny and supportive. The atmosphere was really light hearted and I think all of us had a great time getting put together by her.
I used Eye Do for my wedding in Nashville, TN. They were quick to respond over email to get information and schedule a trial. I had 12 ladies and 2 little girls getting hair and makeup done for the wedding day, so they assigned me 4 artists for 4 hours. The pricing was reasonable and they come to you. My four artists were Meghan, Char, Jimmy and Erika. They were all wonderful and made my bridal party look so beautiful. Meghan did my hair and makeup and I was in love with it all! They made it all very easy by creating a schedule for each artist so I was able to assign my girls their times to get ready. Overall I am very happy with the choice to use Eye Do.
Meghan was AMAZING!!! She worked with a crazy timeline for my wedding and never once had a conflict or complaint. My wedding hair and makeup and my bridesmaids makeup looked fantastic and I would highly recommend her! I actually found her on Thumbtack and then realized she was also on WeddingWire.
Meghan Lee has been a trooper so far!!! I asked for makeup artists a while back on Thumbtack but then have been kinda busy with several different things going on and she was very patient and hung in there with me waiting for an answer. I didn't mean to put anyone through that after asking for help!!
I hired Meghan for a girls night out birthday event and she made me look fierce with a dramatic smoky eye and dark lips, which is exactly what I wanted. I only hired her for makeup but the fact that she offered hair too, we played around and I loved it! That was the icing on the cake. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Huge thanks to Meghan! She did mine, my mother in law, and daughter's make-up for graduation. Really appreciated the convenience, experience she brought, and professionalism. On time, prepared, and made sure we were happy (which we were!). Book her for your next event whether you have one or many it will be worth it!!
Meghan Lee did my make-up for my wedding and my bridesmaid as well. We were both so pleased with her quality of work, her knowledge and taking advice from what we wanted to look like and completely making that happen. I couldn't have picked a better person. She is very kind and sweet as well. I would have recommended her to several friends. My wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful because of her work. She also talks you through everything and lets you be involved in what look you are going for.
