"I cannot recommend Alison enough! She did my makeup for a wedding and did an amazing job! My makeup lasted all night. She gave me exactly what I asked for and really made me look and feel beautiful. Her attention to detail is extraordinary, my makeup was flawless. Not only did I love my makeup, but Alison is also very professional, friendly, fun, and incredibly talented. If you are looking for a MUA in the Minneapolis area, whether it's for a wedding, photo shoot, or any special event, I highly recommend giving Alison a call."

"Alison at Colour Me Joy is extremely professional, timely, easy to talk to and just all around fabulous! I have used Alison's amazing abilities numerous times for all different types of occasions. Most recently, Alison was my makeup artist for my engagement photos. I was so impressed with her work I decided to hire her for my wedding day as well! On the day of my engagement photo shoot I was so sunburned! My face, my chest and my back! I was planning to wear an open back dress and I had a large white bathing suit line across my back surrounded by red! Alison made suggestions for colors to use to offset the red while still keeping my vision in mind. She was even able to airbrush my back and chest so as not to notice the redness and the big white tan line was considerably less noticeable. You'd never tell from my photos how burnt I was! I was so impressed with the final outcome that I knew Alison had to be the makeup artist for myself and my bridesmaids on the big day. Planning my Chicago wedding from Florida makes the planning process a lot more stressful and harder to find trust worthy vendors. Alison was so quick to respond to emails and was more than flexible in agreeing to travel to Florida for my trial run and be in Chicago for the main event. Alison has been so easy to work with, answered all my questions and let me know what was required up front. She has been really great about working with me on coming up with a beauty vision for my wedding day and I can't wait to see the final results! I would highly recommend Alison and Colour Me Joy!"

"Alison has done my makeup for numerous events, and I can’t say enough about how great she is! I’ve asked her to do a variety of styles: dark and intense, light and natural, Marilyn Monroe style etc, and it turns out perfect every time! She has a great eye for colors that go with my skin tone and eye color. She’s creative, professional, talented, and fun! HIGHLY recommend!"

Perc Powell- Tampa, FL

"Alison is incredible to work with... always fun and upbeat! Not since NY have I encountered this level of professionalism and knowledge in a Make up artist, not to mention her creativity and willingness to "help" make the shoot a success. I'm sure I will be booking her again many times for future projects."

"I have worked with Alison for years. She did the makeup for my sisters wedding and when it came time for me to get married I knew she was the only artist I wanted for my big day! She is so much fun to be around and so insanely talented. The makeup was amazing and it lasted all day. It never felt too heavy and never cracked or faded. I plan weddings for a living and she is my go to makeup artist for my clients."
