"Karishma was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was friendly and easygoing, and totally NAILED it with the looks I wanted. I had three separate visions for my sangeet, wedding, and reception and she brought them all to life so effortlessly. I appreciate the time she took to travel to Kalamazoo for my events, as well as accommodating makeup requests for my mother and sister on the morning of the ceremony. I would highly recommend her to any bride!"

"Karishma recently did hair/makeup for myself, mother in law , mom and sister for my wedding. Despite having only an hour after the ceremony we were able to beautifully transition from my glowy, more natural ceremony look with a beautiful braid with a complex gajra arrangement to a more dramatic evening look and Hollywood style curls. I felt amazing and received many compliments, my family looked stunning as well. Karishma and her assistant were also very receptive to my feedback throughout the process which I very much appreciated so that I could really feel like I looked my best!"

"I used Makeup By Karishma for bridal makeup, hairstyle and draping for my two wedding ceremonies - Indian and American. Karishma is an excellent makeup artist. She is passionate about her work and you can count on her & her team to deliver the bridal look you have envisioned. 

Due to time constraints, I was not able to have trials done before the wedding days. We decided to do half hour consultation to discuss "the look" for both weddings. She listened to my ideas and gave me honest feedback during the consultation. I wanted fresh but traditional bride look for the Indian Wedding. I wanted natural glam look for the American Wedding. Karishma and her team were able to recreate the exact looks that I had envisioned. 

They were professionals, arrived on-time, worked in an organized manner, and they made me feel calm & relaxed even during wedding day chaos. Their work looked natural and enhanced my facial features. Make-up matched well with my skin tone. The hair extensions gave volume and blended with my hair. And most importantly, the hair and makeup stayed on for 12 hours. I received several compliments on how beautiful, stunning, and gorgeous I looked on both wedding days! I have to thank Makeup By Karishma and her team for their excellent work! I highly recommend their 5-stars service!!"

Logistically, working with Karishma was seamless- her communication was quick and thorough and exactly what I needed to ease all my pre-wedding nerves. Big thanks!"

"We met back in 2012, I believe, at a Holiday party and ever since I’ve been admiring your work and always knew I wanted you to glam me up on my big day; you were one of the first vendors I contacted and booked and I cannot explain how thrilled I was that you were available. 

You did a total of 4 looks for me, and every single one was unique and had its own flare which I absolutely loved! From my sangeet look, to my haldi ceremony, to the wedding look, and the reception, you and your team did something different and always made sure I was comfortable and relaxed. You really made me feel like royalty and I cannot believe how amazing you made me look!

While your work is extraordinary, I also want to add how thankful I am of the friendship we built during this time. You are such a beautiful and genuine person inside and out and you knew just what to say to calm my nerves. It was such a pleasure to work with you and have you glam me, my mom, my MIL and my SIL up! 

Your work really does speak for itself, but above all your kindness and warmth just puts you over the top! We all had such an amazing experience working with you and I cannot stop recommending you to all my family and friends. You and your team are professional, kind, genuine, and above all TALENTED! 

Thank you so much for coming out and waking up super early just to make me look like a princess on my wedding day, you have no idea how much it means to me and how emotional I get looking at the pictures and realizing that it’s really me in them! 

Once again thank you and I can’t wait for the next opportunity to have you glam me up again!!!"

"Karishma has magic flowing through her fingers! I hired her for wedding day hair and makeup for my morning ceremony and evening reception on the same day. I had asked her for toned-down, mostly natural makeup that enhanced my eyes and lips. She successfully enhanced my natural features while keeping me recognizable, staying true to my skin tone, and without making my makeup look "over the top". I felt beautiful but also confident that I looked like myself. She was also very creative with my hairstyle, arranging roses and baby's breath in a gorgeous pattern in my bridal bun. The makeup she applied was top quality and lasted through a hot noontime ceremony without so much as a smudge. I received so many compliments all day on my hair and makeup.

As if this was not enough, Karishma is simply one of the most kind, caring, and genuine people I have had the pleasure to know. She was a calming presence leading up to and during the wedding, and her approach to working with her brides is highly professional but she also has a personal touch that puts one at ease. I would certainly recommend hiring her for wedding hair and makeup."
