"Heather did my makeup for my maternity and boudoir photo shoots, both of which happened while I was pregnant. She did such an amazing job of bringing out my natural beauty, beauty I sometimes have a hard time seeing. At a time when I didn't feel particularly pretty, Heather made me feel like a fairy tale princess. She's amazing!"

"Heather is an absolute pleasure to work with, working in the beauty industry myself, I have seen a lot of work and Heather is absolutely incredible. She made me feel comfortable, and listened to what I had in mind. She did both my hair and makeup and knows exactly how to execute her ideas. She is creative and understands how to make you the most beautiful you. I would definitely hire her for any event. I haven't felt that beautiful in a long time. Thank you so much Heather I look forward to future events!"

"Heather took me from Godzilla to Gorgeous! I've come across many artists who do both hair and make-up but don't really excel at either, this is not the case with Heather as she is truly talented at both. No matter how little sleep you've had or what disaster your hair starts out in, she can and will fix it. Heather is reliable, fun to chat with and prepared with everything including gum if you're concerned about your coffee breath. You will not be disappointed hiring Smudge!"
-Robyn
"I LOVE getting my hair and makeup done by Heather! It's always relaxing and I always feel completely comfortable when in her chair. I love that we can chat and laugh about stuff while she makes me prettier. Her hair styling is out of this world! My husband always loves when she does me up for a date night. Heather is by far my number one go-to for beauty styling - LOVE her work!"

"I worked with Smudge Makeup on 2 photoshoots -- one for business headshots, the other with full body makeup -- both of which turned out great. As a male, obviously I'm not used to wearing makeup, but Heather Thieson does a fantastic job at making you feel at ease with her expertise, professionalism and fun personality. Plus she's insanely hot."

"I wanted to say that Heather is the Best Makeup Artist Ever!! I had the privilege of having her do my hair and makeup for a photo-shoot. I was a bit nervous... But I was surprised at how pretty she made me look!! Highly recommend!!"
-Brenda
"Heather did my hair and makeup for a boudoir photo shoot. I was so scared and nervous for this photo shoot before I sat down! That fear quickly disippated once she started to work her magic. She really kept my mind off of what I was about to do. Beyond her skill of making people feel at ease, She has a great skill in hair and makeup. When I saw myself in the mirror, I felt sexy and ready for those photos! I forgot for a moment that I am that shy girl that never wears makeup! I highly recommend Heather's talent!"
