We see you out there planning & doing ~all the things~ for your big day. You have a vision for this special time in your life, and you want to look your best every step of the way (rightfully so). The thing is, you're struggling to know where to turn for you. Who can you trust to make your bridal beauty dreams a reality? To make you feel confident and help you shine?
We see your stressed, frustrated & overwhelmed self out there, and let us
just say - we’re here for you. At Cleveland Bridal Makeup, we help brides
look & feel their best so they can be fully present & at ease on wedding day.
Because girl - you deserve to be the best version of you throughout your entire bridal experience.
Let us show you how we do it.
We carefully listen to your thoughts, ideas and vision to get a sense of how we can best enhance your features & create a look to fit your wedding aesthetic. At Cleveland Bridal Makeup, we’re more about creating a look that highlights your natural beauty & personality than spiraling down the trend tunnel.
What makes our makeup experience different from most is that we take a holistic solution to ensuring your glow. Your skin is the foundation to the foundation- the texture, moisture, and all these little details are a big part of a truly flawless look. That’s why we include a skincare consultation with our licensed esthetician as part of our process. In other words… we make sure you get your glow up, girl.
I’m Bonnie, Founder & Creative Director of Cleveland Bridal Makeup. I started this business not just out of a passion for makeup, but out of a genuine love for bridal beauty. I truly believe no bride should feel uneasy about their wedding experience because they don’t know how to look & feel at their absolute best.
In my book, that’s just silly - & nobody has time for that!
My sole focus is helping you elevate into the best version of you. I believe beauty goes beyond just the right foundation or lip color- at CBM, we operate from the mentality that beauty comes from within. That’s why we help you feel seen, heard and beautiful. I want you to feel 110% confident and beautiful on wedding day, and I’ve crafted a special process to help you get their.
Once you’ve filled out our questionnaire, we’ll send over our pricing guide and you’ll let us know if you’d like to move forward! Once we have the details of your event, we will send over a customized quote and setup an invoice to pay your deposit. Then, we’ll begin planning all the following so you feel truly beautiful throughout your entire wedding experience!
First things first, we make sure the foundation to the foundation is primed & prepped - your skin. Ever wonder why celebrity makeup looks so gorgeous? That’s because they focus on the skin first… it’s texture, plumpness, and overall condition effects wear of makeup & allows for a long lasting, flawless look. We’ll schedule your virtual skincare evaluation with Bonnie where she’ll recommend a skincare regime to follow.
Now for the magic- time to setup a date for your makeup trial! Beforehand, you’ll send us inspiration pictures your what you have in mind. Then it’s our turn to figure out the details. A trial is exactly what it sounds like - a time to play around, see what works and make a game plan for wedding day. *Trials are strongly recommended but not required.
As some of the first people you’ll experience on your wedding day, we make sure to set the right atmosphere. You’ll be completely at ease knowing there’s nothing left to question, with every detail communicated and coordinated to perfection. We are known for our fun, relaxing presence on wedding mornings - it’s our CBM signature. You, your maids & the moms will arrive with a clean face ready to be pampered and toted on as you begin your best day ever.
Let us own one piece of your planning puzzle and help figure out your morning-of logistics. As seasoned experts in wedding mornings, we know exactly how much time to work with and will coordinate with your other vendors to make for a stress free, getting ready experience. We’re always happy to confirm details with your planner/coordinator!

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!"
