“Elizabeth and John luckily had rain-free skies for their super fun wedding in Cincinnati, Ohio. They are an amazing couple!” - Johnny 

It was love at first sight for Michelle Marx.


She fell fast for the makeup business when she was in high school doing hair and makeup for her school’s drama group. Then, when she was 19, she got involved in retail at Aveda. Before long, she was doing makeup for all of her friends’ weddings. She decided she wanted to make this passion for wedding makeup a profession.


Marx discussed her idea with her assistants, developed the idea for MarxeyMakeup, which is essentially a traveling salon. They provide onsite hair and makeup services. What makes them unique is that they don’t have a minimum of participants required in order to travel. Marx says they’re willing to travel for just one person, which gives her business an edge.


And edge, Marx says, won her The Knot recognition, which is awarded based on client feedback and votes. Knowing these people voted her business to win The Knot award made Marx feel blessed and special, she says.


She’s also grateful for Baum. Without her, Marx says she “wouldn’t be able to do anything, she’s awesome.” From this point forward, Marx says she likes right where she is. She loves what she gets to do with the weddings. Even though she says she’d enjoy some side projects with special effects makeup, the wedding business is great and she wouldn’t change any of it.


For any of you brides-to-be out there looking for a wedding makeup artist, Marx has some advice. She says you should not only get to know an artist’s style and check out their portfolio, but also make sure their personality meshes with yours and you find them easy to talk to. It’s your wedding, so you want to make sure you have an artist you can be honest and straightforward with when it comes to your makeup on your big day.
