About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My work stands out from other people's work because I'm very detail oriented. I take utmost care in all the aspects of the makeup. From the blending of eyeshadows, blush and foundation. I also make sure my color choices are well balanced and goes well together. I put alot of love into my work and I believe it shows. I truly love what I do and learn new things about makeup everyday. It is also important for me to listen to what the client wants but at the same time give my own suggestion as to what would work best for them. It is a team effort from both parties to come up with the exact look that would best suit the client.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Meeting amazing clients who inspire me. I also enjoy creating the look they want.

    Michelle is Amazing!
    Michelle and her team did make up and hair for me (the bride) and 9 of my bridesmaids. We all looked beautiful!! And, they had to get us all done in 4 hours and they were calm, cool, and relaxed. It was a really fun and easy getting ready experience for a day that could have been very stressful!

    Michelle is an absolute gem to work with, incredibly sweet and talented. She would make any bride comfortable with her warm demeanor and flexible skill set. She loves what she does, having found her natural gifts in makeup and hair, and it shows through her work.

    Thank you for doing my makeup.. Im so fortunate and touched that you flew all the way from la to do my makeup. i know how busy you are with your schedule.. client here and there.. but you still took the time to do my makeup on my special day. before the wedding, people had been asking if i already did a trial makeup with you.. i said no and they looked worried. i wasn't because i trust you.. i knew you'll make me beautiful and you did.. my husband told me i looked gorgeous, stunning and flawless.. everyone liked my makeup. they kept asking who my makeup artist was.. you are very talented and your hands are so gifted.. just by looking and talking to your client, you know exactly what we want to look like on our special day.. more power. thank you so much.

    Michelle is a gem to work with! She is very professional- As busy as she is, she responds to your emails right away. Flexible with her schedule. I needed my hair and makeup done for a wedding. And on the day of the appointment she arrived on time. She takes the time to listen as to what look you're trying to create. She knows her makeup rather well. I was very pleased with how she did my makeup and she does an amazing job with hair! She values her clients and I appreciate how she maintains a cheerful, pleasant personality. I wish I found her sooner!

    Michelle is AMAZING!!! Her style and technique completely brought out the subtle beauty hidden in one's face. She was able to enhance all the natural characteristics, without making it look like there is make-up on. After reviewing over 10 different make-up artist, we hired Michelle for a trial engagement shoot. She was patient and understanding, and was willing to try different styles to match my wife's taste. We loved the results, so we hired her for our entire bridal party, and for our mothers :) Everyone looked astounding! It was so natural and the blending was incredible. The make-up lasted all-night and didn't run, even after dancing. We are all completely satisfied and will definitely recommend Michelle for your event! You won't be disappointed.

    We had a fabulous experience with Michelle! She traveled to us for both a trial (minimal fee) and the day of the event. We were able to figure out what look we wanted in advance by having her do a trial, then on the day of prom she came on time, and well prepared! My daughter came out even more stunning than on the trial date and we were very pleased. Michelle was very professional to work with as well as very friendly and fun. Her pricing for prom was unbeatable for what we got! My daughters hair and makeup lasted all evening and she looked like a celebrity which is what she truly wanted for her prom! Thanks Michelle, you are fantastic!
