Doris is an gifted makeup artist. She has a natural eye for symmetry and beauty. She is very detail oriented and is perfect for special events or makeup lessons.Aug 3, 2018Verified
Doris was tasked with making me and my friends Snapchat filters for Halloween. I had high expectations after having seen her website, and I am happy to say she surpassed those expectations! My friends were a bit hesitant to book an artist for this, but all of them said to me after "I know I resisted the idea, but you were right, she did a phenomenal job" and I could not agree more! I gave her a picture of what I wanted to be and I ended up looking better than the picture. If I ever need a make up artist again I am calling Doris!!Nov 4, 2016Verified
GLAD MAKEOVER EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS!!!! Recently I was invited to a "a semi~formal" Gala.,and found myself seeking out the services of a Professional Celebrity makeup artist. I needed someone to take my everyday self (think running /workout shorts, tank tops, hoodies, scrubs, and running shoes, no makeup, no styled hair) and turn my "ugly ducking" into a "beautiful swan" I went online and was lucky to find the multialent Dorisa Lew. Doris used her skill and experience to put all my fear about hiring a professional, to a rest . I didn't want to look "plastic/feke" and I have a scar that extends from my hairline down into my eyebrow, plus I am blind in my right eye, very, very sensitive. And I wanted my hair tone done up off my shoulders, but something soft, not severe. I wanted a soft, natural, simple, but Classic look. Doris accomplished that and more. She did bring out my " inner swan" , and boosted my self confidence 10x over!!! I cannot say enough about Doris or express how much this meant to me!!! I can't helpf myself to look how so beautiful!!!! Next time I will come again..... Thank you Doris!!!! If you have a need of a professional makeup artist, i highly recommended Doris Lew!!!! She will transform you into your "beautiful swan"Jun 10, 2017Verified
Doris did the makeup for myself and a group of friends that were attending a costumed luncheon. There were really too many people to get done in the amount of time we had but Doris made it all happen anyway! All of my guests were extremely happy with their makeup. Doris was an absolute professional, communicated quickly, did everything she said she would and adapted easily to some last minute changes we threw at her. I would absolutely use Doris's services in the future.Oct 23, 2017Verified
She did an absolutely amazing job. She was willing to work with my very demanding schedule, and she had a few more ideas to add to the makeup, that she first discussed with me, that made it more wonderful than I ever could have imagined. I could not recommend her higher to anyone looking to do makeup for a costume.Oct 10, 2017VerifiedDoris L.'s reply
Thanks Will. I'm always trying to do what I can to make everyone happy.

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I really like to get to know my customer before I start. I really want to know what is their comfort level. How do they normally wear their makeup. It's great they provide a picture so I know what they're looking for, but I really want to know what their makeup experiences is. For an example you may see a dress in a magazine you like and you want that dress, but perhaps when you buy the dress, it doesn't look the same and you're not happy. The reason for that is because the dress color may not look best on you or the dress is suited better for the model and perhaps your body type is different and it doesn't look the same. So that's the same for makeup as well. I like to modify makeup if I feel the customer needs it. I'm pretty intuitive with people that I work with. I can almost guarantee how much or how little I need to adjust the makeup to please the customer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?As I mentioned before I did go to modeling school and after modeling school I went to makeup school in Toronto where I'm from and graduated with the highest honor of the school. I studied mostly fashion and print makeup. Then I moved to Hollywood and studied more for film, TV, special effects, corrective makeup, ethnic makeup and you name it I learned it. I won best makeup artist my school year. Then years later I decide to learn airbrush makeup. I studied for that in Costa Mesa.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My background is mainly in film, TV, photography and working with celebrities. So I'm very trained and conditioned to work with demanding schedules. I've started to work more with clients not related to the industry as of recent and find it much more relaxing, since it's on our schedule. It feels more laid back and fun because there's not the same pressure. You feel like you can be friends with your customers since it's a more casual vibe and not having 20 people scrutinizing your every move. Don't get me wrong, I still love doing my shoots. This type of opportunity on Thumbtack is a welcome change.
