What an amazing makeup artist! I have gotten my makeup done by many makeup artist and none of them have done a job like Leticia. She takes her time doing your makeup and perfects it to your liking.

Annaliza is amazing. She did my makeup for a wedding I was attending. She was on time, very professional and friendly. I don't usually trust my face to someone else (since I pretty much know how to do my own makeup). Also, I had never had my makeup done by Annaliza so I basically just took a risk and hoped she would make me look lovely. Also, I'm black and I was concerned that she may not have experience with black skin and that the foundation she would use would be the wrong shade (I've had tons of makeup artists who are basically clueless about makeup on women of color). Needless to say I had no reason to be concerned. I wanted a glam but natural look and she delivered. She made me look flawless, took into consideration the dress I was wearing and even suggested another shade of lipstick she thought would look better with the dress (I originally wanted red). Boy, was she right. The color she chose was perfect ans I never would have picked it for myself. She went the extra mile to leave me a sample so I could touch up my lipstick throughout the day. The interesting thing is that I never had to do that or touch up any of my makeup over a 12 hour period. I not only looked glam but also natural and that's not easy to pull off. Also, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that I actually fell asleep when she was doing my makeup. Finally, I never write reviews, but Annaliza surpassed my expectations so I decided to write one. Annaliza is plain simple, just fabulous. Next time I want my makeup done for an event I'm definitely calling her.

Sabrina was awesome! This was my first time working with her and through thumbtack. A little nervous (since I wasn't sure if I could really rely on the site and wasn't sure about hiring a complete stranger.) Sabrina came though. She was on time and very professional. I had a wedding to attend today, and needed to look good. Prior to the event, I had numerous conversations with her via phone, texting, and email about the hair style and makeup look I wanted. She was very easy to talk to, and very comfortable to work with. When I posted a question to her, she usually got back to me with in a couple of minutes. If not, she got back to me within a hour or two for sure (this was important to me because I needed to know if she was reliable. And she was). I am Asian. I know how hard it is to find an makeup artist really know how to do makeup right on Asians (another important point to me was to find someone that knows how to do makeup on an Asian lady). Sabrina was both for me. With Sabrina, I am totally happy with the way my hair and makeup came out today. I highly recommend her. I would certainly work with her again if I need my hair and makeup done in the future.

Frances and Samantha did an amazing job! They saved me when the hair and makeup artist I originally hired backed out on me at the last minute. They were both very friendly and professional. They made me feel very calm and comfortable on my wedding day. They did exactly the hair and makeup style I wanted. I highly recommend them whether it be for a wedding or another big event.

I cannot recommend Julie enough! She did my makeup for my wedding and she was such a delight to work with. I'm always nervous about others doing my make up because usually the artist does my makeup too dark and makes me look scary. I told Julie about my worries early, during my trial, she was really patient in making sure that everything she did was exactly what I wanted. I can't thank her enough for that. She was super easy to work with, super responsive, and ALWAYS on top of it. Given that I'm super Type-A personality and very diligent in making sure I get everything done at a certain time, it was super helpful that she was the same way as well. During my actual wedding day, she made sure that I was comfortable, really flexible in making last minute changes, and super helpful to my family if they needed something. She went above and beyond in her services and I was so thankful that I found her. Really, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed during my wedding day that it really just carried on throughout the night. I couldn't be more happy with my services and if I ever need a makeup artist to work with, I'll definitely use Julie again.

Audrey was awesome. She is so easy to work with and makes sure that you like what is done and if not and you want to do something else she does it. She is in constant contact to make sure that the date and location is set and she is on time and ready to go. I got so many compliments on my makeup and hair and the makeup lasted all day and still looked good the next morning. I would recommend audrey for any type of hair or makeup job so does it all. Thanks Audrey for helping to make my day the very best it could be.

I don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

Alyssa was highly responsive from beginning to end, and remained a constant professional when we needed her to be flexible (as often is the case with unexpected changes at the last minute with weddings). She came prepared and was friendly throughout. She did absolutely great job with my hair and makeup. My only reservation was she was booked for other engagements and could not be flexible by staying later and that cut into the time it took to do the makeup for my mom. Instead of doing my moms hair I wished that time was spent dedicated on doing her makeup only. In my initial request, Alyssa was booked for makeup only for my mom so when she asked if my mom wanted hair too, we assumed she had time to do both the makeup and hair, and we did not think twice when Alyssa started with my mom’s hair first. My moms makeup was really the priority as I had requested. Alyssa did provide a $15 discount for the “light makeup” and I appreciate she did that. If given an opportunity to work with Alyssa again, I would book her again in a heart beat however my recommendation would be she clearly communicate given time restrictions on a day like; by asking if my mom wanted her hair done also lead us to believe she had enough time to do both. I would have preferred she concentrated on the makeup only as we had discussed prior.

When I started exploring my options with what I wanted to do with my talent, I came across a posting on social media about Julia's Makeup class and immediately caught my attention while looking at her excellent work as a makeup artist and teacher. I quickly contacted her though direct message and didn't hesitate to ask if I could join her class. Julia was very noble to answer all my questions and tell me the paying methods which absolutely worked out for my budget. Not only is she economic but she works with you one on one which I feel she gives more than what she charges for her lessons and goes above and beyond to help you start right away. I also like the fact that she works around my schedule and she accommodates everyone else's too. I highly recommend her as a makeup instructor, she makes sure she touches all basis with all her makeup tactics and she makes it very fun and interesting. You can definitely trust an experience artist like her. You will learn to apply makeup for all different type of occasions and even costume makeup. Best experience I've had, hands down. She's not only the best in Lancaster but in the whole Antelope Valley. Thanks to her I have makeup professional skills and will forever be thankful for such a great opportunity that she gave me.

Samantha is an exceptional makeup artist who I've hired several times and will do so again in the future. I am a commercial producer and I've hired Samantha for shoots for eBay, Levis and others. Her work is top notch. She is always on time, hard working and delivers the look we are going for. She is a genuine and warm person who loves what she does and gets along with everyone. She has a great knack for connecting with her subjects on a personal level and if you've worked with her once, you'll want to do so again.

Brigitte is a fabulous Esthetician and Makeup Artist. She has been waxing my eye brows for over a year, and I truly look forward to going to see her. She is very professional, and has a soft touch and a great eye. She has also done airbrush makeup for me, and I was blown away by how beautiful it looked and how long it lasted. Brigitte provides great service, and is a valuable investment! You are sure to feel as pretty as I always do when Brigitte is done with you!

Terrance was an amazing makeup artist to work with. I don’t normally like my makeup when others do it but he was on point!!! He was professional and paid attention to detail. You could see that he has a passion for what he does. I will definitely be booking him again 😊
