“Mimi did my makeup for my engagement photos and she did an excellent job!! I am a local news anchor in Las Vegas and being so makes me very  particular about my make-up and who does it – especially for such an important occasion - but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome and even more so when I saw the pictures!! The part I loved the most was that she catered to exactly what I wanted – and she let me see the progress as she went along. It was a great experience and I would recommend her services to anyone!! I’m just so sad she won’t be here to do my make-up for my wedding!”

"I have worked with Beautiful Distractions [Mimi Banasik] in Vegas at my last Boudoir photo sessions, and Mimi is amazing at what she does! She is both fun to work with and knows her stuff. Had a blast working with her and she was a major help with a few of the sessions! Best of luck on the East Coast to you Mimi and Beautiful Distractions!"

"Mimi is, hands down, the best make up artist I've met.  Not only did she always make me look and feel beautiful, but she's kind, friend and easy to talk to.  She has an impeccable knowledge of the stock at the stores in which she worked (and helped me pick out date outfits to complete my look more than once).  One of the things I like best about Mimi is that she is no pressure (which, in the end, meant I purchased many things because I respect her opinion and not because I felt she was forcing things on me).  As for the make up itself, she always knew which colors and look would compliment my features without a ton of guidance from me.  I never left an appointment wit her no feeling I looked my best: what more could you ask for?"
