On-site Bridal Makeup Services

My name is Leah Terres and I am a bridal makeup artist in Minnesota. I reside in Burnsville, but work on-site in the twin cities and surrounding areas.

People who know me will tell you I am a perfectionist with great attention to detail. These two traits are ideal for taking your ideas and making them come to life, all while having you feeling like the best version of yourself! I use my skills to design a makeup look, tailored to your special occasion.

The images from your special occasion last forever, and I want you to fully enjoy them with a smile on your face!

I achieved a Bachelor's degree in Sports Management with a minor in Marketing from SCSU in May, 2007. For the last five years, my work experience has revolved around helping people to feel and look their best inside and out. As a health coach, I have been helping and guiding people to make healthy behavior changes in the areas of weight loss, exercise, diabetes, heart health, stress reduction and tobacco cessation.

With a passion for makeup and fashion, I have recently extended my skills into the world of makeup artistry. My abilities stem from an education from QC Makeup Academy along with my personal experiences through bridal, and day to day makeup applications.


I provide my makeup services on-site, making your special event convenient and comfortable

"I hired 'MakeUp by Leah T' for my October 2011 wedding and she was one of my favorite vendors. The reason I chose her was because of her professionalism, ability to do on-site, her great personality, and her reasonably priced services. She listened to what I wanted and gave me exactly what I had envisioned. She was always quick to respond to my questions and inquires. I would definitely recommended 'MakeUp by Leah T' for anybody needing make up services and I personally would use her again in a heartbeat.

"As a bridesmaid, it really took the stress off to have a professional do my make-up at a reasonable price! She did an outstanding job, and I would feel confident in recommending her to anyone! Someday, when I'm the Bride, Leah will be the one making my face look flawless! Thanks Leah!"

Molly Freeman

"I hired Leah to come onsite the morning of our May 2012 wedding, to do my makeup, as well as, 'mini' makeup applications (eyes, cheeks, and lips) for my mom and 6 bridesmaids. From our first phone call to the actual wedding day, Leah was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I had complete confidence in her and I got compliments all day long (even at 1:00am when the reception was over!) on how flawless I looked! I would recommend Leah to anyone-hands down!"
