Ashley provides you with more than just instructions on how to do your makeup. She gives you a new found confidence and is a friend you can always rely on. She not only knows her stuff, but she makes the appointment enjoyable and fun. She'll have you laughing so hard by the time you're done that you might have to redo your mascara. Whether you're looking for somebody for prom, a pageant, or just an everyday look, there's nobody else you should trust. -Allison Young


I adore working with Ashley because she truly has a gift of using makeup to highlight both your inner and outer beauty. Ashley is also so easy to talk to and makes you feel so welcome and above all, beautiful. -Gracen Gueldner


Ashley was so amazing to work with. I wanted to learn new application techniques as well as how to contour & I ended up learning so much more! I feel so much more confident in my skills after having a private lesson. She also showed me different hair styling techniques and we went over different hair and make up products. I went away with the lesson not only feeling beautiful but with a list of products recommended to me, and step by step instructions so I could recreate the look she put together for me. Ashley is hands down the best! 5/5 stars for sure! -Holly Iglehart


I went to Ashley for a private makeup lesson, to learn a few new techniques and figure out how to make the most of all the new makeup and brushes I bought, and she was wonderful! So informative, so friendly and so knowledgable about all things related to beauty. I walked away with tons of great tips and interesting additions to my everyday routine. And, working with Vanbros & Associates, I've seen her work with their pageant titleholders first-hand and she does an excellent job! I highly recommend Ashley for a makeup lesson or makeup application; she is the best! -Rachel Karwas (Mrs Missouri United States)


Miss Ashley is simply the best! She has taught me so much about the best products, brushes, and techniques. I always leave feeling my best. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she also is a great teacher. Her personality is magnetic and I enjoy every minute we spend together.  She has taught me how to do my everyday makeup, and how to glam it up for the stage and for photo shoots! -Christina Stratton (Miss Missouri Teen USA)


I highly recommend Ashley Renee Makeup. She is not only professional but very knowledgeable on what she is doing. She is guaranteed  to not only make you look beautiful, but make you FEEL beautiful! I will only go to her for hair and makeup for anything pageant related! There are not enough words to describe how awesome her work is! You will not regret going to her! - Amber McKinney (Miss Central States IJM)


As a pageant mom, I am always a little stressed on pageant weekend as I want to be sure that everything is "just right".  But this year at the 2015 Missouri IJM pageant I was able to literally sit back and relax as my Ella was taken care of by Ashley and her team. Ashley was able to bring out the natural beauty in my sweet girl which helped her to shine on stage and take home the title of 2015 Missouri Jr. Princess! I would highly recommend Ashley for your pageant or special event.  I know we will be working with her again very soon! -Krista Roberts (Mom of Ella Roberts)


From the moment Maryn stepped into Ashley's hair and makeup suite, she was instantly welcomed, comfortable, and excited for some special pampering! Ashley and her assistant provided an exceptional experience by listening to Maryn's ideas and creating a special look that was totally age appropriate and on trend.  The words of encouragement, in addition to the perfect hair and makeup, fully prepared Maryn to shine on stage and claim the title.  This environment allowed mom to relax and enjoy the weekend as well. We're anxious to work with Ashley for future projects! -Marla White (Mom of Maryn White, Miss Missouri Teen IJM)


Miss Ashley is not only talented and a perfectionist, but she provides such a comfortable atmosphere.  She is great with girls of all ages and knows how to apply the right amount of makeup for each age.  My daughter loved working with her and we will definitely be asking her to help us again.  I highly recommend her for any of your makeup and hair needs in any system. Shae felt so amazing and was glowing on stage! -Angela Smith (Mom of Shae Smith, 1st Runner up at IJM)
