Lori is such a gem. I cannot recommend her enough. She did my makeup for my engagement shoot and I booked her immediately for my wedding. I was very picky when it came to my makeup, because I wanted a perfect balance of natural and glamorous in person and in photos. I know that is a difficult thing to achieve, but Lori is an artist. She worked with me to figure out exactly what I wanted, patiently and sweetly trying different things until we found the exact perfect look for me. She talked me through everything, showing her knowledge and care in every step. I felt so beautiful on my wedding day thanks to Lori, and the photos turned out to be absolutely stunning as well. Lori was more than just my makeup artist throughout my wedding planning journey--she became a close friend as well. In the hours we spent together planning for my wedding look, she made me feel so loved and celebrated. She cared about me as more than a bride--she cared about me as a person. Having her get me ready on my wedding day was one of the best decisions I made. She not only made me feel beautiful, but she made me feel calm and centered. It felt like one of my closest friends happened to be doing my makeup on the most special day of my life!

Thank you so much Lori! The photo shoot was absolutely wonderful. I felt beautiful. You have such an amazing presence. Spending time with you this morning really put me at ease. I felt so incredibly peaceful on the way to the photo shoot and I really attribute that to your warm and reassuring energy. Thank you!


My experience doing make up with Lori was 10/10! First of all, she is such a sweet woman. We had a great morning talking about a variety of things. ☺️ always a pleasure to talk to Lori! Second, the make up was just as beautiful as my wedding make up. It was natural, glowing, and didn’t feel heavy at all. Our family photos turned out great and I felt confident and pretty doing them (and I turned out as such)! As a busy mom, it felt good to pamper myself and treat myself to a make up session. It was so worth doing that with Lori! Would highly recommend!

Lori Nansi has styled my makeup for several photo shoots as I document the growth of my sweet baby girl. Lori is so much fun to work with, she takes my preferences and concerns into consideration, and I always leave feeling glam and camera ready. Ever prompt and prepared, Lori is the best! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to look and feel their best for any special event.

As someone who does not wear makeup, I was very nervous about hiring a makeup artist for my wedding day. I wanted to be absolutely stunning, but I also wanted to look like me. All those nerves vanished after Lori did my Bridal trial and I left feeling like a princess. On the day of the wedding, I knew I was in great hands with Lori and she did not disappoint - I looked exactly as I’d dreamed I would on my big day. Lori has done my makeup on several occasions since that day and each time I leave all the decisions up to her because I trust her artistic vision to make me look and feel like the absolute best version of myself and she always does! Even when I was a few days postpartum and completely exhausted somehow Lori made me look gorgeous for my newborn photoshoot. I can’t remember how I stumbled upon Lori, but I am so glad I did - she is a makeup magician!
