Nancy did a fabulous job on my wedding day makeup. She also did my two daughters. We were all thrilled beyond words. She does a trial so there are no surprises on the big day. She replied to all my emails within hours. The best way I can describe her is “likable”. She even stuck around to watch YouTube videos to help me tie a bow after her job was done! Definitely five stars!!
Nancy is an amazing makeup artist! I absolutely loved my wedding make up! I felt so beautiful on my day! My bridesmaids and my mother still rave about Nancy. She is truly talented!
“I booked Nancy for myself & bridesmaids and she was absolutely wonderful! From her laid back attitude to her professionalism, she was everything I wanted & more! She came right to our hotel the morning of my wedding and set up shop right in the kitchen & living room. She made the experience awesome & made us all feel like celebrities! Two of the things I loved most about her were 1. she did what you wanted & 2. the cost I paid also included a trial session. Her pricing is super reasonable and I have already recommended her to some future brides. I hope to work with her again in the near future!!“
“Nancy is the best makeup artist that you could ever have imagined or dreamt of having, seriously! I have had my makeup done many times by makeup artists in and around the boston area. Nancy is by far the best artist I’ve worked with — she was able to work with my seven bridesmaids all of whom have different skin tones and skin types, and complimented each woman’s natural beauty! I thought the best part was Nancy’s very calming presence. She will not only put the bride at ease, but will also keep bridesmaids and mothers at ease as well. The combination of her artistic and creative talents, and her personality, will make the overall experience of getting your makeup done truly memorable and enjoyable!”
“Nancy was amazing!! She is a pleasure to work with, extremely flexible, and easy to communicate with from 3,000 miles away. Everyone looked beautiful from the moms to the bridesmaids to myself, and everyone’s make-up lasted all night! Thank you so much!!”
“I recently hired Nancy to do my makeup for a professional photo shoot. I thought my makeup looked amazing but the photographer was very pleased – as it was all the right texture, contours and colors for lighting! He asked me for her card as he loved the professionalism so much. Thank you Nancy!”
“Nancy was wonderful! She is very talented, flexible and very pleasant to work with! Since I do not wear makeup often I was worried that I would look like a different person. But my worries were eased at the trial. I felt like myself, but prettier. I was able to feel beautiful and confident on my wedding day because of her beautiful work! I wish I could have her do my makeup everyday! Thank you Nancy!”
“Nancy did a wonderful job for my 7/5/14 wedding. I had never been happy with the results when someone else had done my makeup, so I was nervous about my trial, but Nancy nailed it! She really listens to what you want, looks at pictures you show her, and is willing to work with any ideas you have. I loved the airbrushing, and didn’t even feel my false lashes all night! Leading up to the wedding, Nancy was great about communicating with me, and even did my rehearsal makeup last minute! I wish Nancy could come do my makeup every morning!“
“Nancy made our night magical. When my wife walked down the Aisle, I saw an angel.”
“Nancy did a fantastic job on wedding day makeup for myself, my mom, and three of my bridesmaids. She was incredibly responsive and sweet throughout the planning process and made it so easy for me to coordinate everything from a distance while I was living in California. Everyone’s makeup looked incredible and lasted throughout the night. She also took the time to make my flower girl nieces feel super special by applying some very subtle eye shadow and lip gloss. Overall, we had a great time working with Nancy, and I would highly recommend her to any brides looking for a great, reasonably priced, and easy to work with makeup artist.”
“Nancy was such a pleasure to work with and did an absolutely amazing job on the makeup for my wedding. We all had a fun time and all the girls looked lovely. She was always quick to respond and had great ideas when it came to the questions I had. I would highly recommend Nancy!”
“Nancy was so wonderful – one of my favorite vendors for the entire wedding day. She was professional, very responsive to any concerns I had, and kind. The value for price is great – her work is wonderful. She did my trial run the day of my wedding shower – and everyone at the shower complimented me all day on my makeup. For the wedding itself – Nancy did an amazing job on myself, 8 of my bridesmaids, and my mom – all within about 5 hours! She was calm and sweet the whole day — I was happy to have her in the bridal suite with us. I highly recommend Nancy for your makeup needs.”
“Nancy was awesome! I had a makeup lesson with her and she was very thorough and a great teacher! I am very excited to put what she taught me into use! And the best part is that we used a lot of my own makeup so I now know what I need to go out and buy without spending a fortune!
I HIGHLY recommend her!”
“Nancy did such a great job with mine and all of my bridesmaids make up! I would recommend her to anyone!”
“We hired Nancy to do the makeup for my daughter Erin’s wedding. she was professional, personal and just all around a great fit for us. her artistry with each and every bridesmaid and mother of the bride and groom was spot on! (there were 8 bridesmaids). we couldn’t be happier with our makeup for the big day!!”
“I absolutely loved working with Nancy!!! She was personable, professional and has a great sense of humor. It’s a miracle she was able to wrangle all of our attendants, including my boisterous sisters. Initially, I was worried about finding a make-up artist who could work with various skin tones. Nancy immediately put my fears to rest and was able to apply beautiful make-up to our African-American, Dominican and Indian wedding attendants. She also made me look absolutely stunning! I’m still receiving compliments. Thank you so much for contributing to our very special day.”
“Super friendly and I loved the end result!”
“Nancy was outstanding with her work. Everybody looked beautiful. I would highly recommend her.”
“Nancy was amazing! My bridesmaids and I all loved our makeup. I highly recommend her to anyone!”
“Nancy was an excellent addition to my wedding day. Not just for making everyone look beautiful but she was a help all around. Couldn’t have asked for better in the bridal suite!!”
“I booked Nancy for my wedding and she was amazing! She was very flexible when it came to booking the trial and then the day of my wedding she traveled to our hotel. She was always fun and professional. In a room with 3 hair stylists and 9 ladies Nancy’s section of the room was a little make up sanctuary. I would highly recommend her. She did and amazing job and was such a pleasure to work with! She had a positive impact on my amazing day!”
“Thanks Nancy! Makeup trial was fun and relaxing. She took her time to find the right look for my sister and my makeup was transformational. I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup. I was a little nervous. Nancy had me runaway.. I mean aisle ready.”
“Nancy did an amazing job for my wedding day! Not only did my make up come out perfect but she made my giant wedding party of 8 girls look amazing as well,along with my mother! My skin looked flawless but natural and lasted all day into the evening!”
“Nancy was great to work with. She is very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable. She got both my mother and the grooms mother to agree to makeup even though they had problems with allergies to makeup when they were younger before hypo-allergenic brands were available. She did a great job with our makeup making it look more natural and not overdone. She was on time and well prepared and easy to communicate with.”
“Nancy was such a pleasure to work with and did an absolutely amazing job with all my bridesmaids, mother of the bride and of course the bride. Nancy is professional, timely, super responsive and has such a calming presence about her, which in a bridal suite full of ladies is much appreciated.”
“My make up looked so natural and my skin looked flawless. Not only did my make up come out exactly how I wanted it but my 8 bridesmaids and mother looked beautiful as well. Our make up lasted all day and night, we even woke up still beautiful! She’s awesome !!!”
“Nancy was amazing! So sweet, and so accommodating. My bridesmaids, my mom, my MIL and I LOVED our make up! Thank you Nancy for helping to make my wedding day perfect!”
“Nancy was a great calm in the chaos of getting ready!”
“I always love my makeup when Nancy does it for me- for an event, a shoot, you name it! Love the airbrushing as it makes my face look flawless. Nancy is dependable, always on time and puts the clients needs and visions first!”
“Nancy was great. Makeup was beautiful. Great personality on a busy day. Thanks again Nancy!”
“Nancy was incredible, down to earth, and super easy to work with. Highly recommend!”
“Nancy, you worked tirelessly on a huge wedding party!! 1 gorgeous bride, 1 gorgeous maid of honor, (both of which were my daughters) 7 gorgeous bridesmaids, 2 gorgeous mothers and a gorgeous step mom. That is 12 altogether, and your great personality hung in there through it all. Thank you for helping to make my daughters dream day come true. She was radiant.”
“Nancy was awesome! Everyone’s make up came out amazing and exactly what they wanted. She did 12 people and everyone was done on time for the ceremony!!”
I was having trouble finding an airbrush makeup artist, and found Nancy only a few weeks before my wedding. She fit me in for a makeup trial over a holiday weekend and after a fabulous trial, we ended up hiring her immediately! Nancy listens to what you want and adjusts the level & style of makeup accordingly. She also has great suggestions if you are unsure of certain elements of your look, like lips or eyes. She even picked up my lip color for me, which was one less thing for me to worry about in the days leading up to the wedding! She is also warm, friendly, kind, and professional and will put you at ease and help you look your best on your wedding day. One of my top priorities was the staying power of the makeup and it really did last from the first picture until the after party. I would highly recommend Nancy for all your bridal makeup needs!
I’ve worked with Nancy on multiple occasions and each and every time it has been a sheer pleasure. As a photographer, I especially appreciate her talent with makeup, as she is consistently able to make every member of the wedding party look spectacular yet natural. She creates whatever look the moment calls for and is a pleasure to be around. I work with a lot of makeup artists and Nancy is the one I go to whenever I need a makeup professional…if you want to look your best, Nancy is your girl!!
Nancy was literally the best “vendor” at my entire wedding!!!! She did exactly what we did in our makeup trial and made the exact changes that we had talked about!!! My makeup came out amazing!!! My face looked flawless!!! Nancy even researched my photographer to do my makeup in a way that would complement my photographers editing style!!!- I would never think of that!! Nancy has a very calming presence about her- she noticed I was stressed & did her best to relax me (it worked!), she even answered wedding questions outside of the makeup world!!! Nancy was extremely helpful in any way she could be!! I know I will be going to Nancy and only Nancy the next time I need a flawless face!!! I can’t say enough good things about Makeup by Nancy!!! Thank you so much for making me look fabulous on my wedding day!!!
I met Nancy at Chamber event where she did my makeup and I loved, loved, loved it! I do not normally wear makeup and have never really liked it when I have. But it was so light and natural and I felt great. I scheduled a makeup session next!! So happy with the lesson and all the fabulous tips! Thank you, Nancy!!!
Nancy was so great and even helped my mother unexpectedly the day of our wedding. The photos were gorgeous due to her ability to know what product to use for your event specifically. Thanks Nancy!!
Nancy always takes such wonderful care of our clients and over the years her work has been consistently amazing. I highly recommend booking her for makeup services…

Nancy is incredible at what she does because she loves it and truly gets to know her clients. You get out of her chair looking beautiful and having made a new friend.
Nancy is the greatest! I searched long and hard to find a makeup artist, and I couldn’t be happier to have found her. She is not only talented, but also easy to communicate with and genuinely lovely to be around.
Nancy is the best. My bridal party and I had so much fun with her. I can’t wait until some of my girlfriends get married so I can recommend Nancy! She is very professional and amazing at what she does.
I recommend Nancy Gorman for any event that requires a professional, caring, sensitive and attention to detail make-up artist. Nancy is a highly qualified professional make-up artist. I hired Nancy to make up three family members and me for my son’s wedding. This was my first experience and Nancy put me at ease right away. Before the session Nancy explained the process and answered questions. During the session Nancy noticed that I was disappointed that my hair stylist was not available to do my hair that day. She gently asked me if she could make a few calls to find someone to blow out my hair. Within thirty minutes I was in the chair of a fabulous hair stylist! When I returned home it was my time to be made up. Everyone looked and felt beautiful. Nancy’s attitude was positive and respectful. Nancy made my face look amazing and I felt beautiful inside and out. Nancy provided more than a makeup session; she saved the day, introduced me to a new hair stylist and created a new confidence in all of us. The value of her service cannot be measured in money. I felt that her fees were fair and well worth the service received. The wedding pictures demonstrate how the makeup brought out our best features and lasted throughout the day. If you need a makeup artist I highly and warmly recommend Nancy Gorman! Thank you Nancy for being a part of my very special day.
Nancy is a true professional and knows her products well. She is flexible with scheduling and has the tools to work in almost any situation. Nancy has a passion for what she does, and will work with you one on one to make sure what you want is what you get! Best makeup professional I have EVER worked with!
Amazing day at my sons wedding thanks to Nancy! Considering it’s been 28 years since I put on makeup you made me look natural and not like a “barbi doll” (which you would have been happy to do should I have wanted that look) all by listening to my request and then honoring that. Can’t thank you enough for putting me at ease about the process! Hire this artist
Nancy did my makeup as well as my mother’s for a recent photo shoot and did a wonderful job! Between her skill and bubbly, energetic personality, we couldn’t ask for more. Thanks for making me look and feel beautiful, Nancy!
When i was planning my wedding last year I was looking for the right makeup artist who understood what I wanted. And then i came across Nancy! (Thanks google) seriously Nancy is so fun to work with! She made me a queen on my wedding day and i loved it. Can’t wait to see her again. She’s the best! Seriously wish i had your skills lady. My makeup didn’t smudge or anything. It was perfection!
I was just married this past Saturday and Nancy did my wife’s makeup. My wife is beautiful to begin with but she was absolutely gorgeous on Saturday! Nancy did a wonderful job and was very friendly and pleasant to deal with. She and I traded many emails back and forth in the weeks leading up to the wedding – she was able to answer any question my wife had and was very friendly throughout the entire process. Thank you so much Nancy!
Nancy was the makeup artist for my best friend’s wedding. She did such an amazing job that I asked her if she could do my wedding right on the spot!
Nancy was wonderful and a pleasure to have around on my wedding day. She was very easy going and she did a fantastic job with the make-up. I was nervous about how I would perceive myself in my wedding pictures, since I normally tend to think that I do not look great in pictures. For my wedding day, I wanted to be able to look back and say, “WOW, I looked great!!” I felt beautiful on my wedding day and love looking back at my pictures, thanks to Nancy!
Nancy is amazing! You can go ahead and stop looking for a makeup artist now:) Nancy helped me from states away because I was a destination bride. I live in Florida and my wedding was in New Hampshire. I was unable to make it in person for a consultation but Nancy still made me feel like I had one. She e-mailed me many examples of make-up styles and even had several girls model the look I was going for. She had different models also try different lashes and was patient with me when I last minute decided on extensions. Nancy was always prompt in responding to me and even gave me advice about other vendors I had. She had several hair artists in mind but I had already chosen one. I now wish I went with who she recommended as my hair did not come out the way I wanted. I trust Nancy in every decision she makes.
Unfortunately I was sick on the day of my wedding, I’m not sure if it was the bug going around, the several drinks I had the night before or just my nerves. After talking to most my bridal party I was still feeling sick. It was Nancy who calmed me down, made me feel better right before my wedding and did my makeup perfectly. Everyone in my wedding party and my family that had Nancy do their make up loved not only their results but her personality as well. She truly is the best. My mom (an FIT alumni) even stated that Nancy was the best makeup artist she has had. I don’t normally write reviews but Nancy is that good. I know how stressful planning for a wedding is, especially from a distance but if you work with Nancy I guarantee you won’t have to worry about your make-up.
Nancy did makeup for myself, my sister and mother, and my husband’s sisters and mother the morning of our wedding. She helped me plan out how much time we would need for makeup, and she showed up right on time to the hotel with all her gear. It’s amazing that she can set up a makeup studio almost anywhere! Getting our makeup done by Nancy at the hotel was so much easier than doing it ourselves or going to a salon, and the results were amazing. I asked for a natural style that would look great in wedding photos, and that’s exactly what she delivered. Everyone was very happy with her work, we all got false lashes expertly applied by Nancy. I felt so glamorous on my wedding day and I’m so glad I hired Makeup by Nancy! I also did a trial session that was super fun, I highly recommend Nancy for event makeup!!
I had such a wonderful experience working with Nancy! She did my makeup on my wedding day and also did my mom’s and cousin’s. She did an incredible job – I could not have been happier with how my makeup looked! It lasted perfectly all day and looked amazing in all my photos. And my mom and cousin looked great, too. Typically I don’t wear much makeup and do not know that much about makeup, and most times when I’ve had my makeup done professionally it never looks anything like I want it, and I don’t feel like myself. But during our trial, Nancy listened well to the look I was hoping for, clearly explained what she’d do, and made any little adjustments I wanted (which were practically none!). She created the exact look I was hoping for. I felt so beautiful with the makeup and felt like myself. And she was very accommodating to schedule our trial – we had a very short engagement and I was only in town a couple weekends before my wedding. The week of the wedding she was really responsive, too, helping me get the lipstick and lip gloss so I’d have those to keep on the wedding day. Overall, she was really fun to work with and really listened to what look I wanted. And I just can’t say enough how much I loved my makeup! I ended up getting back in touch with Nancy later to ask her how I could recreate the look on my own and she was super responsive and explained all the products she used. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone!
As a photographer, I’ve been fortunate to work with this lovely lady many times- she is so talented, kind, and a pleasure to be around! She did my make up for a shoot and I was so happy I did a make up lesson with her!! Can’t say enough about Nancy!! She is incredible!!
My best friend got married a few months before me and Nancy was her makeup artist. I wasn’t even considering getting makeup done for my wedding but after I saw Nancy’s work, I changed my mind! She’s great at what she does, makes everyone feel super comfortable and she’s super fun to be around! I would book Nancy for any event!
Nancy’s makeup is beautiful and natural! As a wedding photographer, I really appreciate the looks she creates for her clients. 5 stars, highly recommend!! 🙂
I was recommended to Nancy through a friend, as soon as I met her I knew she would be perfect! At my trial she made me feel so comfortable and knew exactly what I wanted. I booked her right away for my wedding day I wouldn’t want anyone else to do my makeup on that special day!
Where do I even begin?! I first met Nancy when she did our makeup at my sisters wedding a few years back. When I contacted her to do my wedding she was so excited from the get go. Nancy is one of a kind.. not only does she just make you look and feel beautiful on your big day but she takes the time to get to know you. She doesn’t rush,she doesn’t just want to get on with her day, she takes her time with each individual and does amazing work. I can not thank her enough for making myself and my girls look like a million bucks!!!
Nancy is absolutely amazing and a true talent. She was the makeup artist for my 9/2/16 wedding. After meeting Nancy for my trail many months before the wedding cry quickly I knew that I had found my girl. She is extremely kind and talented and was able to single handedly apply make up to myself, 4 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls and two moms the day of the wedding all the while staying ahead of schedule and making everyone feel so comfortable and also beautiful. Nancy takes her time with each and every person to ensure they look exactly how they want whether that be natural or full glam. Not being a makeup wearer I was very nervous about what to expect but all I can say now is that I have never felt as beautiful in my life as I did on my wedding thanks to Nancy. Nancy stayed with us int he bridal suite that day right up until it was time to walk down the isle to ensure that she would be there to handle any last minute touch up issues. There are not enough good things to say about Nancy she is simply the best and every bride should use her!
