I’m not a gal that regularly wears makeup or gets my hair done, so I was quite mystified at where to turn when it came to my wedding day. I felt instantly comfortable with Bre and Kate and the look they created for me. It felt absolutely and authentically “me” in every way. Not only did they know what mattered to me about how I wanted to look...they listened and honored my request to use as many vegan and sustainable products as possible. My mom and my girlfriend, who was officiating, also got their hair and makeup done and they absolutely loved it! We all marveled at how light and comfortable the makeup was, how quickly they worked their magic and how utterly enjoyable it was to have them with us. These two are radiant gems and I cannot recommend them highly enough
I had Tiffany on my wedding day handling my hair and makeup. She came to the beach house where we had the wedding so I didn’t have to worry about anything. I love love love love her. Not only was she so laid back & sweet, she worked perfectly on the general wedding time clock. We had a few interruptions & questions from people flowing in & out of the room where I was getting ready but she never got flustered or stressed. And she was always so gracious. For my look, she listened to what I wanted, looked at my pictures, and immediately understood what I wanted to look like. We had a surprise elopement planned - our guests thought they were coming to a dinner party at the beach. For my hair I wanted a braid around the crown of my head. When the wedding started, I would put a lei po’o haku crown lei over it. She perfectly understood what look I wanted & created a beautiful braid. Since the wedding was a surprise to our guests, she helped me plan and practice on placing the lei (which I would do myself later right before the wedding started). For my makeup I wanted a very minimal natural look, which she nailed. Later that day I asked my (now) husband his fave parts of the wedding, and he said my hair was his #3 best loved part of the day lol! So yah, she crushed it! It can be very stressful planning a wedding & then picking HMUA from yelp reviews - but I could not have done a better job in stumbling upon someone so kind, talented & well-organized to help me meet all the deadlines of the day!
They are truly the best at what they do! I hired them for my wedding day hair and makeup and they came through with exactly the look I wanted, with very little direction from me. Not only that, but they were so kind to me and very understanding of a Bride’s needs on her big day. I felt extremely comfortable with trusting them and would highly recommend them for your glam squad! They went above and beyond for me and my wedding day would not be the same without them!
Booking a makeup artist for your wedding day is scary, especially when you don’t have time to do a trial first. I seriously scoured the internet and social media profiles for weeks researching the local teams on Oahu in search of an artist for my wedding day! I eventually was referred to Medicine of Beauty by my wedding planner/friend, Jade from Aloha Bridal Connections. I am SO THANKFUL FOR THE REFERRAL! Kate Broadhurst was a DREAM to work with! She was super talented, knowledgable and confident about how she was going to work her magic to turn my inspiration picture into a reality. Not only did she make me look & feel like a super model, but she was so fun out hang out with all morning! My bridesmaids still talk about how fun and talented Kate was and how pleased they were with her services. If you are looking for a hair + makeup artist in Hawaii for any event, BOOK KATE! You will not regret it. Thank you so much Kate and Medicine of Beauty for making my wedding day dreams come true! xo
I was referred to Kate and her team by our Photographer and I am eternally grateful. I immediately felt comfortable with them both and like I was in the hands of artists and friends. I don’t wear much makeup or style my hair, so this was a first for me! Bre was able to give me a beautiful blow out prior to styling my hair and I was so surprised at how smooth and polished it looked!Kate allowed me to have a hand mirror the entire time, encouraging me to let her know my opinions as she worked. The makeup felt SO light on my skin and I could NOT believe it lasted the entire day! With minimal re touching, due to their talent, the photographer was able to get my finished photos so fast. Working with them was a dream come true!
Kate’s expertise is shown from the initial contact to the application itself. She did Beauty makeup for an event I attended and I got so many compliments all night. I have very oily skin and had absolutely no problems that night. She used just the right products and took special care to ensure my skin was only taking in products it could handle. She also did my makeup for a Frida Kahlo inspired shoot, which was very important to me as a Mexican-American. She did not make it costume-y or gimmicky and I felt proud of her design on my face! She asked for my input but gently guided the day as I wasn’t too sure how to put into words what I wanted. She is very easy to work with and I would definitely recommend!
You are so lucky to be reading this review right now! Consider your search for the best wedding makeup artist in Hawaii over! About 10 years ago I started my makeup journey with Kate. She is simply AMAZING and I’m so lucky to have found her. From special events to everyday makeup needs, she is the beyond the best! When it came time for my wedding I knew I couldn’t trust anyone but Kate. Since I couldn’t afford to fly her to Italy for my wedding, I did the next best thing. I had a consultation with her where she recommended all the products I needed and then gave me a private lesson to learn how to use these products. She is friendly, professional and did an incredible job for me. I am so happy with her work and the service she provides. If you are looking for a wedding makeup artist for you, your bridesmaids and anyone who needs makeup on your special day or even if you are simply looking for a consult on new everyday ideas Kate is your answer. She runs a true 5- star business and you should call her now to book an appointment!
Kate is amazing! I loved how my hair and makeup turned out, exactly what I had requested. Kate is a perfectionist and so patient, she always checked to make sure that I was happy with the look. She was super professional and knowledgeable and had great recommendations for products too. I would highly recommend Kate!
