    Karla, made my daughter's homecoming a very memorable one. Karla told my daughters that if there is anything she does not like she will fix. Turns out the first time was perfect. I am very excited to have met Karla and can't wait for her to other members of my large family. You choose people to do hair and makeup by how they do their own. Karla showed up with beautiful make up and hair so I knew my daughter was in good hand. Thank you !!!

    Amazing. My hair and makeup came out equally fabulous. She's easy to work with, extremely accommodating and talented. Karla did my hair & makeup for 2 photo shoots so far and I'm looking forward to working with her in the near future. To top it all off, she introduced me to an amazing stylist; now I just wish I could take them both everywhere I go :)

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. My advice would be when looking to hire an artist, to do your research in time. Get to know the artist by sitting down and going over any ideas. And schedule to have a trial/preview. That way you get an exact image of what you will look like on your special day and have no doubts what so ever. Good Luck!

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. One important thing I'd like to remind my customers is not everyone is a makeup artist. Yes you might know a friend or family member who does great makeup on herself but it's a whole different story when they are trying to recreate it on someone else. Hire a professional on your special day who can execute the perfect look for your eye shape, face shape, skin texture and tone.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I have the best of the best training in makeup. I studied through a Los Angeles based makeup school, and have MAC training and continue to take the MAC master classes. And my prices are more affordable than the rest, we can't forget about that.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. The beauty industry has always been a passion of mine. I love transforming women into the beautiful person they have yet to let out. I compliment they're best features through the art of makeup.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Q: what experience do you have?
A: I have five years experience in the beauty industry working on countless fashion shows, photo shoots, weddings and thing like that.
Q: who have you worked with?
A: besides all the brides and quinceneras, I have had the plessure of working with the San Diego Charger Cheerleaders a few times,and I have worked at the San Diego Comic Con promoting the movie Zombie Land.
Q: do you work at a salon?
A: I do have sufficient salon experience however I recently had a little one so I do freelance work.

Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?

A. Every client I meet has an amazing story. It would be very hard to pick just one. But my favorite ones would have to be when I work with my brides, hearing about they're romantic stories of they're husband to be of when they first met is really amazing to hear.

Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?

A. Something very important I would like my clients to know is doing your makeup yourself and hiring a professional is a huge difference, Especially if its a big event like a wedding. And its also such a treat and another thing to not worry about.
