A Woman With Vision

Few things in life truly come naturally. One could compare skin care and makeup artistry to Bonnie Thomas, to what swimming is to a duck or breathing to a new born baby. Once acquainted with skin care and makeup artistry, Bonnie excelled immediately. Always having a knack for touch, even as a young child, Bonnie flourishes in an environment where touch is encouraged. As an Aesthetic Specialist at the Cleveland Clinic for years, Bonnie learned & honed the medical side of skin care. She spent time working with patients post-op to help them learn corrective makeup. Before Bonnie became a licensed Esthetician she was a manicurist for years. This means that Bonnie has been in the service industry since 1998. In this time she has truly learned what it means to hear her clients and help them achieve their goals. Bonnie ultimately enjoys being able to bring happiness, ease and skill to her clients. Anytime she is able to give to others she feels fulfilled. While some services can feel transactional, you will never get that feeling when working with Bonnie. She takes pride in offering the very best she can on any project she takes on.

“You must hire Bonnie!

My entire family could not stop talking about how much they loved Bonnie! Not only is she an extremely talented makeup artist who will make you look your best on your wedding day, but she is an absolute joy to be around. She took a great amount of time to understand my skin type, makeup preference, and how I wanted to look on my wedding day. Bonnie is great at making sure you still feel and look like yourself - but an elevated version. She did makeup applications for several women of various ages and very different preferences and every single person loved their makeup and felt beautiful. I highly recommend hiring Bonnie for your wedding day makeup!!"

“Cleveland Bridal Makeup was the perfect choice for my wedding day!

Temeaka & Ashley made my entire group look and feel beautiful and the makeup stayed on flawless all day. The process was easy, they offered lots of options, and the trial was so helpful! They are also just really sweet and fun to hangout with while you are getting ready for your big day. Highly recommend!"

“Bonnie was the most calming, positive and nicest person ever!

She did an outstanding job with my makeup and all of bridesmaids. I knew that she was the one after I did my trial and she took the time to actually listen to what I wanted. She was very knowledgeable about products and was very detail oriented! Also she very organized, always on time, full of positivity and constantly made me laugh. I will always cherish knowing that she was able to make me feel at ease on the most stressful day. I am happy I decided to book Cleveland Bridal Makeup!"
