Kacey! She is amazing! I had been looking to update my make up routine. I was overwhelmed by all of the products out in stores. So I went to Kacey. She is knowledgeable about make up and techniques She helped my revamp my look and my make up bag!

Best Makeup Artist Ever
Kacey is absolutely the best makeup artist you could have on your wedding day. She not only will make you look your most beautiful, she’ll make you feel it too. She is so fun to work with, and she is so talented! She also did makeup for my bridesmaids and everyone was super happy with her work. Highly recommend Kacey for your wedding or special event!

"I found Brushed Beauty after my first hair and makeup team cancelled on me 3 weeks before my wedding. And I could not have been luckier. Heather pulled off a small miracle to help me. And I will be forever grateful that she was able to assign a hair stylist and makeup artist so last minuet! She was so sweet and responsive and put all of my stress to ease. I have to shout out my girls Amy and Kacey, though, because they were absolute GEMS. and made my wedding day so fun while we got ready. Not only were their vibes unmatched, they did such an amazing job with all of our hair and makeup. Amy had 12 people for hair and Kacey 11 for makeup, and they were so fast and did a beautiful job! They listened to what everyone wanted and did such a great job bringing those style to life. It could not have been easy to do that many people with one stylist/artist, so I simply cannot thank them enough. I should have booked Brushed Beauty immediately from the start, so let this be a lesson to all my other brides to book them! You will thank me later."
I can’t say enough good things about Kacey! She was so much fun to work with and made my wedding makeup dreams come true! Highly recommend!

Kacey is a must-hire for your wedding day!
"I cannot say enough good things about the amazing work Kacey has done for me. I first met her in 2020 when I was a bridesmaid in my friend’s wedding. I am minimalistic when it comes to makeup (I’m talking mascara, blush and chapstick are my go-to), so I was nervous to get a full face of makeup done. But she knocked it out of the park!! I looked so fabulous while still looking like myself. Needless to say she was one of the first vendors I hired once I booked my wedding date for September 2021. Fast-forward to my own wedding day and every single one of my girls was obsessed with their makeup. I have already had 3 people reach out asking for Kacey’s information to book her for future services. SHE IS THAT GOOD!!!"

"I booked Kacey through Brushed Beauty LLC and I could not have been happier with how everything turned out! She makes you feel like a million bucks. My bridal party and my family really loved all of their looks. Her energy and kindness really makes for a wonderful process. Highly recommend! Thank you Kacey!"

"I was lucky enough to work with Kacey on my sister's wedding several months before me, and from there I knew she needed to be the one I booked for my wedding, too. And I am so happy I did! Kacey is a true professional -- she makes sure she knows the timeline, and she is beyond perfect in her ability to make every single person look natural but beautiful. She was also truly delightful to have around the day of the wedding -- not only made everything easier, but so funny, and kept us all laughing and upbeat throughout the day. Thank you Kacey for making me and all of my girls feel so darn pretty and confident on the best day ever." - Madeline Mahon
"Kacey is the BEST!
Wow was I blown away by Kacey and not only her pure talent for makeup, but how much positivity and fun energy she brought to the big day! Kacey was super flexible and great to communicate through the process of organizing my makeup plus bridesmaids and mother of the bride's. We all ended up getting the airbrush foundation which I have to say is a MUST. It made the biggest difference in photos and everyone's foundation stayed FLAWLESS through the entire night. I honestly couldn't believe how amazing my makeup looked at the end of the night.. I never expected that! I will continue recommending Kacey to everyone I know and look forward to her possibly doing my makeup again in the future!! Thank you Kacey"

"Kacey is great! Her makeup lessons really helped me have the confidence to try new things with my makeup. As someone who rarely wore much makeup and never a full face I lacked confidence in my ability to do a good job or try new things with my makeup. Kacey was extremely patient and kind as we walked through the many steps, noting which could be more or less detailed and which products were best. These lessons are perfect for anyone looking to learn more about makeup on a personalized level, both novices, like mused and more experienced makeup wearers."

"I had a black tie summer wedding and decided I wanted to get my makeup done, but I don't love overdone/very dark makeup. I told Kacey I love natural, glowy and sun kissed looks -- she gave me exactly what I wanted. She look the time to make sure everything looked perfect, and she didn't rush through it. She is also so friendly and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed, which is extremely helpful with all of the stress surrounding getting ready for any event. At the wedding, I got so many compliments about how pretty my eye makeup looked and how glowy my skin was! It also lasted all night. I was so happy with how it came out and can't wait for the next event so Kacey can do my makeup again!
Kacey Gavlin did my makeup for my anniversary dinner. I typically never like my makeup when other people do it, but I loved how it turned out from Kacey! She used colors that I don’t normally choose in a really natural way, so I was able to have a different look while still looking like myself. I got tons of compliments, and my boyfriend also loved it! Kacey has great energy and is sure to make getting ready a blast!
"To my fabulous make-up and hair team
I thank you from the bottom of my heart to both Jasika and Kacey for making both me and my bridesmaids feel absolutely gorgeous on Friday! I know that I've never felt as beautiful as I did that day and it's all because of you wonderful ladies. My bridesmaids and I couldn't stop raving about how much fun you ladies were and how much we loved our hair and make-up. We all agreed and said it was the best hair and make-up we ever had! Both of your energies that day filled the room and I couldn't be more happy I went with this company! I thank you all for making this day so very memorable!"
With love and appreciation,
"Hi Kacey! I just wanted to thank you again for such a great experience. I got a lot of compliments on my makeup! I'm actually a "secret shopper" so this companys pays me to give reviews of products and services. I also worker at Sephora in Towson (cash wrap/fragrance) a while ago, but couldn't tell you that. lol! I'll be giving you a great review through my company, and I've already completed the Sephora survey."
