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!
Emily H: Hillary was wonderful to work with! I found Hillary through a recommendation from a friend, and I am so grateful that I did! She does beautiful work, and is so calm, professional, and fun to be around. She was super responsive from the moment I contacted her, making communication quick and easy throughout the planning process. My bridesmaids and my mom had different skin tones and skin types from each other, and she made each of them look and feel amazing. She worked seamlessly with both my hair artist as well as my photographers, and I felt incredibly well taken care of and relaxed on my wedding day. She worked quickly and efficiently, but didn't feel rushed at all. My makeup lasted all day with nothing more than lip touch ups needed and it photographed beautifully in everything from mid-day natural sunlight to indoors at our reception late at night. I highly recommend hiring Hillary!
Kristi S: If there were more stars, I would give them all to Hillary. Look no further for your dream makeup artist. From start to finish, she couldn't have been more wonderful to work with. She is responsive, organized, experienced, and talented! Her work is absolutely beautiful. She made me feel so comfortable re-assured during my trial (she even let my mom come for a trial too!) As the big day approached, She was available to answer my questions, and even proactively reached out a few weeks before with skincare prep recommendations! I can't tell you how good it felt to know that my bridesmaids, mother, mother in law and I would be in such good hands the day of the wedding. Everyone's makeup came out beautiful; she truly worked with each bridesmaid and mother to find a "look" that was perfect for them, while working with some style guidelines that she and I pre-agreed upon. She uses top quality products and is extremely thorough with sanitizing. WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE? Book your date with Hillary before she's all booked up!
Sarah P: Not enough stars for Hillary! From the first email she was super responsive and kind. I had concerns about timing and longevity of the makeup; she reassured me on everything and executed perfectly. Paying someone who truly knows the industry and what they're doing is WELL worth it. Hillary was able to get 8 bridesmaids and myself done in about 5 hours. My bridesmaids all LOVED their looks and the fake lashes she put on. Our photos were stunning and I could not have asked for a better experience with a makeup artist. Don't hesitate on booking her Vermont brides!
Bianca E: I can't say enough about Hillary- she was wonderful to work with and immensely talented! On my wedding day my sister (and bridesmaid) work up with her eyes swollen shut from a product she used the night before. While she got allergy meds and cold compresses, Hillary had a cream on hand that also helped to get the swelling down. By ceremony time, you would have never known there was an issue. Hillary was on-time, professional, and fun to work with. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a beautiful - natural bridal look.
Jessica W: I had found Hillary Fay while searching for makeup artists on Instagram for my wedding and followed her for a bit before deciding to book her and I am so glad I took the chance! I knew from following her posts that she took great pride in her work and I was not disappointed. Hillary is extremely responsive to emails and had great communication throughout the planning process. I had a trial with her before the wedding and she made sure to take time to explain the different products she was using and listened to the type of look that I was going for. She arrived early for our October wedding and helped make the morning run smoothly. She spent time with each person to listen to what they were looking for with their makeup for the day. Her work showed beautifully in photos and I truly could not have been happier with how everything turned out. I only wish she lived closer so I could have her do my makeup more often. Thank you for helping me feel beautiful on my wedding day Hillary Fay!
Becca P: Hillary was so easy to work with from the very start! She is extremely attentive and quick to respond to emails. Hillary worked quickly and kept everyone right on schedule! She is able to accommodate a large bridal party...and the moms! Everyone loved their fake lashes which she included at no extra fee. I still felt like myself after Hillary completed my makeup (just the best version!) since she kept things natural and classic which was the look I was going for. Hillary's prices are reasonable and she was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to future brides!
Erica T: WOW is all I can say. Booking an artist from states away (I live in Colorado), was a scary task. Hillary took my calls and answered my emails almost instantaneously. She also created a great timeline with my hair stylist so the morning of ran smoothly. Putting everything at ease on the big day was such a relief. She was professional, fun, kind, and attentive. My makeup lasted through 85 degree weather and humidity, PLUS some mask wearing (stupid Covid). I wish I lived in Vermont so I could hire her all the time for my makeup. Truly one of the best vendors I hired for my wedding. Furthermore, she knew my venue and was really quick setting up her station and lighting system. HIGHLY recommend Hillary!
Lauren F: Hillary is professional and an incredible makeup artist! She was easy to work with throughout the year and made me feel at ease as someone who doesn't wear a ton of make-up. During the trial, she explained the process and took the time to understand what I was looking for. She was able to do make-up for 12(!!!) people on our wedding day, and everyone looked amazing~!
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!!!
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!
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!
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!!!
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.
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!
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!
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 Vermo
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!
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!
Kristen C: Hillary helped me feel beautiful on my wedding day- it was a perfect day! I loved the lipstick shade and concealer she used. My under eye area is my problem area, and it came out great. Thanks again for all your help and making it such a pleasant experience!
