    With over 20 years of experience Karen from LaV Beauty is a top-notch makeup artist, and I am incredibly fortunate that she was part of my wedding day. Our connection was instant - we hit it off from our initial phone call. She is not only highly responsive but also values your input, ensuring that the look she creates is a perfect reflection of your vision. I don't typically wear a lot of makeup, and Karen completely understood my goal of feeling like myself on my wedding day while looking radiant.On the big day (September 9, 2023), Karen's magic extended to my mom, mother-in-law, maid of honor, and matron of honor. Every single one of us was thrilled with the results, we felt absolutely beautiful. Karen’s own line of makeup worked well with all of our skin types and withstood the humidity of the day and night full of dancing (including our afterparty!). It was a delightful experience working with Karen. She created an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation, making us all feel at ease.Karen's seamless collaboration with our hair stylist ensured that everything was completed on time, allowing us to fully enjoy our special day, including scheduled photos and our first look.I wholeheartedly recommend Karen and LaV Beauty to anyone seeking a makeup artist who is not only exceptionally skilled but also a joy to be around. Thank you, Karen, for making my wedding day all the more radiant and unforgettable!Service: Bridal makeup

    Although I never worked with Karen before, she was recommended and so I figured why not. I am so glad I got the opportunity to work with her! My makeup came out great and I received many compliments! If you want to get your makeup done professionally without looking fake; then LaV/Karen is it.Glad I have a trusted makeup artist, will definitely be working with her in the future :)Services: Special occasion makeup

    I had an unfortunate circumstance of hating my bridal make up trial that I had for my bridal shower. THANK GOD I found Karen!!! She was suggested in a Hudson Valley bridal Facebook group. She was super responsive and we set up a trial that week. Right away I felt comfortable with Karen and she understood my want for me to feel beautiful and look my best on my wedding day without looking like a different person completely, she enhanced my natural features. My make up was perfect and when I look at my wedding pictures I have no regrets with choosing her. She also did my mothers makeup, my matron of honor, and step daughter's - they all looked beautiful! She even gives you the option to purchase a touch up kit with all of your essentials. I didn't even need a touch up though, because my make up stayed on all day/night even though it was one of the hottest summer days. If you love a natural/glam, natural/no make up look Karen, owner of LaV Beauty is your answer.

    Karen was not only a delight to be in company with but also is fantastic at what she does. She was hired for my sister-in-laws wedding and every lady's beauty was enhanced through the skills of Karen. I personally, get nervous about lipstick colors and she knew exactly would work for me. I ended up purchasing the color that day because of how great the product was. I felt so beautiful and confident taking pictures that night for my brothers wedding. My makeup stayed on the whole night and I certainly danced a lot. I would def. recommend Karen, you will not regret it.

    I used LaV for my wedding as my main makeup artist and hair person as well as for all my ladies! I couldn't have been happier! And my makeup lasted ALL day and night. I even had pictures taken at the end of the night and you still saw the flawlessness! I received SO many compliments on my makeup and hair that I don't think I could count. And yes, I know, you're supposed to compliment the bride but usually it's saying "omgosh you look so beautiful" or something along those lines. I got compliments directly about the hair and the makeup. I had so many tell me that if they had seen me on the street, they wouldn't have known it was me because of how gorgeous my makeup was.... I wonder what that means about my regular face haha! Karen was wonderful. She had an extra hair person come to help out with some more difficult bridesmaids hair. Anna was a gem with the hair and did an extraordinary job not only with my hair but with everyone's hair! Everyone was getting compliments! They listened, they tweaked and they made us laugh! Wonderful experience and would definitely recommend her to all the brides out there!!
