Kismet Cosmetics offers a range of services to engaged couples to help them look and feel their very best on their big day. Their highly-skilled makeup artists believe that your nuptial beauty look should complement your outfit, theme, and overall wedding style. Both hair and makeup trials are available in advance, allowing you to discuss your vision with your makeup artist. These stylists are trained in a plethora of application techniques including contour, airbrush, and natural makeup. A range of pre-wedding treatments is also available to ensure that your skin is prepped and ready to go. This includes pampering treats as well as Kismet all-natural rapid rinse tanning solution!
All of these services are available in our studio location in Historic Downtown Covington, just a few blocks from the Southern Hotel.
Caitlin wanted to create a safe space where a bride-to-be can comfortably express herself. So she dedicated Gabrielle, a makeup artist, to be a bridal liaison. Gabrielle ensures your wants and ideas will come to fruition, by communicating your vision to the right artists. Gabrielle handles all coordination of your big day, so you can relax and be pampered.

What To Look For in A Beauty Company:
- GOOD COMMUNICATION. When researching beauty service providers for your big day, communication is key. You need an attentive artist who can talk to you when any question arises. Kismet has a dedicated Bridal Liaison, whose job is solely to provide you answers to any and all questions you may have. Wondering if extensions would be a good idea with your style? Call Gabrielle!
- BROAD TEAM. Not every artist is well-versed in every single style. Some artists have a strength in natural makeup looks, while others do full glam best. Some can nail the Old Hollywood hair, while others specialize in up-dos. At Kismet, we created a beauty quiz to get an idea of your needs, to pair you with the right artist(s) for your wedding day.
- BRIDAL TRIALS. Luckily, at Kismet, we have a physical studio location where we can perform your bridal trials. We recommend getting a trial before to ensure a smoother wedding day application.
- POST COVID. We all learned a lesson in this post-covid world, sickness can arise and we must have a backup plan. We keep an artist on ‘standby’ for every wedding. Just in case the unthinkable happens, and someone begins to feel under the weather.

“I highly recommend their services for all your bridal beauty needs! They are decisive, but flexible. My entourage was well taken care of, and the artists were very kind. I was overly delighted with make-up and hair! I truly felt like a beautiful, blushing bride!”Kristyn Williams
“Could not be happier with the service we received for our wedding! The hair and makeup artists were friendly, professional, and supportive. At every step of the way, they were checking to be sure that my vision as the bride was being fulfilled and even exceeded. Kismet services, including the glam/natural makeup, beautiful hair styles, and super-comfortable false lashes, make everyone feel beautiful and glowing, even though it was 90+ degrees outside the day of the ceremony. Wedding pictures looked that much better because of them. If you want professionals who will brighten your day and make you feel like the main character, hire Kismet for your next event!”Teresa Vall
