I have to say that my experience with Courtney was an absolutely perfect one. Not only did she make me look as beautiful as possible... she also had no qualms about listening to my needs and the look/looks I was going for. She had me laughing the whole time which made for true and lively photos, but she also kept a positivity in the room that was infectious. I only hope that every actor has this same experience when shooting new head shots. She is a beauty expert and I left with several references and recommendations in hand! Thank you Courtney!!! - Anneliese van der Pol

Courtney is a very talented artist, friend, and makeup specialist. She is extremely reliable and always does an amazing job! I can always count on her to be extremely professional and always very personable. She makes the experience of getting makeup done an extemely enjoyable one because she is very open and honest. She is a great listener, extremely enthusiastic, and always able to do your makeup however you want it! I don't know what I would do without her. Creative Beauty by Courtney is an impeccable brand and one that I know will never disappoint. I can't wait to work with Courtney even more in the future. She is a talented, outgoing, funny, and beautiful person. Love you, Courtney!!

Courtney is an excellent makeup artist, provided exemplary communication and was client-focused. As mother of the groom visiting NYC, I was nervous to hire a MUA. Courtney is a very pleasant individual, was easy to work with and gave me my desired look: smoky eye and fresh, glowing skin. She explained MU trends as she coordinated my makeup with my dress, eye color and skin tone. Application was at noon and at 11 pm, I still looked fresh. Thank you so much, Courtney. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her to all.

Courtney was fantastic. Very sweet and a pleasure to deal with. She is an extremely talented makeup artist, and very responsive to our needs. My friend and I wanted to be cats for Halloween, and she knew exactly how to make it happen. We will definitely use her again!

Courtney did an amazing job on my daughters hair and face. The make up was flawless and my daughter looked amazing!!! Courtney was very professional and friendly. I will definitely be calling her again!!!!!

Carmela G.

Courtney was very prompt and professional. She came equipped with everything needed, and made sure to let me have multiple looks in the mirror as she went along so that adjustments could be made. If I asked about something she gave me her professional opinion, yet always reminding me that I had to like and feel comfortable with the finished "product."

Ellen (Mother of the Groom)

Absolutely outstanding. Courtney is a real artist and a pleasure to spend a few hours with on a photo shoot. She is worth every penny, and more. It was one less thing to stress about knowing that she was able to capture the different looks I needed and I didn't have to worry about it at all. Terrific!!!!!

Courtney came to our home to do makeup for my daughter's Sweet 16. Courtney was a dream to work with! She was not only prompt, but even early! She was so nice and easy to work with, making our first experience getting professional makeup done to be pleasant and fun. Can't say enough good things!!

Courtney is pure professional.

You can trust her to have the client camera-ready.
She was with us throughout the photo shoot, helping out with touch-ups, and encouraging the client along the way. Her makeup was perfect for the portrait shoot, highlighting the client's beauty in a stunning but still natural way.

I would recommend her to anyone who needs a makeup artist for a portrait shoot. She communicates effectively, and has a passion for beauty!

Emily F.

Courtney is phenomenal. She's done my makeup on several occasions - for nights out, TV/film auditions, specialized zombie makeup for a short film, and more. True professionalism and such a sweetheart.

Amanda B.

I had the pleasure of having Courtney do my makeup for my headshot photo shoot. She knew exactly how to make me look natural for the camera while bringing out my best features. She was well prepared and absolutely a joy to work with!

Darcy L.

As a photographer in the city the most important thing is being able to connect to people and make them feel comfortable in order to get their personality to come out in their portraits. Courtney not only does this but always makes a new friend in the process! Not only os she great to work with but her skills as a makeup artist are flawless and make it so much easier for me in the editing room! She really knows how to compliment the person making them look like their best, natural self which is very important in portrait photography! Im looking forward to working with her more.

I was auditioning for Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and was nervous enough for the long days of auditioning. Courtney did an absolutely amazing job with my makeup. She was patient, listened to exactly what I wanted for each specific day and was willing to explain exactly what she was doing so I felt comfortable. She gave me the look I wanted and focused on what I wanted and not what was easy for her. She was the best person I've had at Mac (and I've used a lot of people) and I will be using her from here on out. I also got numerous compliments from other girls about my makeup making me feel even more confident!!! You will not be sorry.

Ally S.

Courtney did my makeup for my wedding day and I couldn't have been happier! She met with me before to do a consultation where she helped me pick from several looks and communicated with me up until my wedding day to make sure I was confident in my choice.

On the day she was such a help and did such a great job! My look lasted all day and night and was perfect in the pictures!

She is a total professional and a must have for your big day!
