Praise for Wendy

“I am so glad I decided to use Wendy’s services both on my wedding day and in the months leading up to it. She provided several great customized facials/skin treatments and helped me establish a new skin care regimen in the months before my wedding. I’ve seen major improvements in my skin; with less dryness and fewer blocked pores.

On my wedding day, she provided make-up services for myself, wedding party, and my mother. We all felt and looked great! She customized each of our looks so that it suited each us, while helping pump up the glam factor for the occasion. All the looks stayed fresh all night; even after hours of dancing! Wendy is really an artist - you can tell she loves what she does. I would highly recommend her services.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of having Wendy do my makeup on multiple occasions now, and each time is wonderful. She always listens to your wants/needs and makes you look and feel your best. My mother, sister and I all saw Wendy a few months prior my wedding for facials and treatment to prep our skin and the results were incredible! During my trial, she patiently worked with me on finding the best colors and look for my big day.  On our wedding day- a very hot and humid day in June, Wendy was prompt, efficient and light-hearted making the morning that much more fun. She was able to do makeup (that lasted all night!!!) for myself, mother, grandmother and my two bridesmaids- nailing the look we all wanted.  She supplied each lady with a little touch up kit and went above and beyond.  I highly recommend Wendy for so many reasons - professional, talented, intelligent, prompt, flexible, efficient, super fun, generous and more!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE HER!!”

“Wendy, Wendy, Wendy...it is easy to make young brides look amazing, but you did it for me, the MOB, as well! Wendy really knows skin, skincare and how to make the most of it at any age. All of the women in my daughter’s wedding party this weekend looked incredible and not overdone. She has years of experience from TV to photo shoots so you are assured to look your best and most natural self when Wendy is involved. She is also a fun person to work with. 

I started a skincare regimen well in advance of the wedding so I could look my best. She literally took about 10 years off my face with treatments specifically targeted at mature skin and age lines. I was very happy that Effortless Events, our planner, recommended her for the wedding.

If you want the best in make-up and skincare, Wendy City Faces is your ‘go to’ girl!”

Brides:
Pick Wendy. Call her immediately. She was AMAZING! I was hesitant to hire a makeup artist for myself + bridesmaids initially because of cost concerns but let me tell you it was WORTH EVERY PENNY because our day was so un-stressful because of her and everyone looked GORGEOUS. She was prompt and delightful and made each girl (all of us with different skin tones and complexions) look fantastic. Everyone felt great about the work she did on them. I am going to continue to use Wendy for skin care and for special occasion makeup as she is available. She also did my makeup before my engagement shoot which came out beautifully.”

“If you want to look #flawless on your wedding day, Wendy is your girl! She is a true master and made me look amazing but also ensured I looked and felt like myself. She has this awesome power to really bring out everyone’s true beauty. Not only does she have incredible skills as a make-up artist, she is also a fantastic esthetician. Why is this important to your wedding day look? Well, if you have any pre-existing skin issues like acne or fine lines she will help you get this in order prior to your big day. She will ensure that your skin shines from the inside-out which is really a unique attribute to her services that many artists don’t offer. Ever since I began working with Wendy I receive compliments on my skin all of the time and that NEVER used to happen. 

On my wedding day Wendy was fantastic! Her team made myself, my mother and bridesmaids all look amazing. She made me feel so beautiful and ensured I was wedding day perfect. She even followed us to the church to double check I looked great right before walking down the aisle! My make-up stayed picture perfect through all the happy tears and dancing into the night. I truly cannot say enough about how awesome she is. She was so great many of my friends have booked her up already for their weddings! I am also looking forward to Wendy doing the make-up for my sister’s wedding in July! As my sister said “I don’t think I could get married without Wendy”. I think that really says it all.”

“Wendy, her facials and her products have done miracles on my skin! She is knowledgeable, engaging, and a true professional in her area. She is able to recommend services and products that actually improve the quality and clarity of my skin, with lasting results (not your typical only-works-once!). I have acne scarring, very light, thin, and sensitive skin but leave her table and home feeling dewy, soft, and more beautiful than ever- and knowing that I can keep these results going since I’m taking home products that will continue to work. She’s heavy on the samples too- which is FANTASTIC! She just wants you to know what your skin needs to stay healthy, but doesn’t push anything on you if you’re not interested or sticking to a budget.”

“All hail queen of the glamazons!!!!” Thank the lord above Wendy likes Chicago otherwise we would lose her to Hollywood and the Kardashians. Not only did her flexibility and professionalism make my wedding day absolutely BEYOND amazing but she even helped me with my nerves that day and helped me feel at ease. I had no doubt that I would be taken care of, which was such a relief with so many other details to worry about. Oh AND Wendy did my facials before the wedding ad got my skin looking AMAZING. I will never go to another esthetician; I will drive the hour from the city to Aurora, just to see the wonderful Wendy Woodside.”

“Wendy did wedding day makeup for me, my bridesmaids, and my female family members, as well as some spa/skincare services for me leading up to the big day. I was so incredibly pleased with her work- I wanted a very, very natural look, and she nailed it! We looked awesome, but not at all overdone. I would highly recommend Wendy!”

“I love going to see Wendy for my facials. She is very knowledgeable about any issue I may be experiencing at the time. Wendy KNOWS what she is doing! She’s has been in the industry for many years! She used powerful and effective products and treatments to help me achieve an even and clear skin tone. Not only has she helped combat and resolve all of my skin issues, I am now equipped with the products and knowledge to care for my skin at home as well. I will continue to book Wendy for my monthly maintenance facials. Wendy is very accommodating and is always a pleasant to chat with.”
