I hired Jacynda and her team for my wedding. One month before my wedding my previous hair and makeup artist fell through. I was able to book the date just a month in advance! She was also able to do a last minute hair and make up trial for me the day of my bridal shower. This was a great first impression. She was punctual and very professional. I don't know much about make up, so she made some great suggestion. I also showed them a couple of pictures of what I liked for hair and make up and they easily worked with it. The day of my wedding they arrived early which was great. They worked through my bridal party quickly, but made sure that the girls got the look they wanted. It was a hectic day and they were both very calm and light hearted. They really made us look very beautiful. I would definitely recommend Plush Artistry! Thank you so, so much!

Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

Shabnam did my makeup as a guest of a formal wedding. She's one of the most professional Makeup Artists that I have met. She asked me what type of makeup I wanted and she did exactly what I expected. She made me look sooo beautiful that I didn't want to put the mirror down. I received so many compliments about my makeup at the wedding, and people wanted to know who had done my makeup. I recommend Shabnam to anyone who is looking for a fantastic Makeup Artist. Azi Ashtiani

I would highly recommend Lily for makeup! She did my prom makeup and I loved it. She aked questions about what I would like often. She also did my hair and I loved how it turned out. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and the hairstyle didn't quite follow the picture but it still looked great! She was even willing to redo it when I asked her to change a little something. Lily was kind and helpful!

As a model, I've worked with countless hair and makeup artists. My least favorite part is how long the process takes, but then I decide the time investment is worth it for the finished product. However, Andrea has enlightened me to a whole other possibility. Andrea worked quickly...far more quickly than any other professional I've encountered. More importantly, my hair and makeup were perfect...better than professionals who have taken their time. If you are looking for a friendly, fast, quality professional, look no further!

I could have not asked for a better hair and makeup artist! My makeup and hair was absolutely flawless thanks to Sarah! She did exactly what I was looking for when other artists could not. I recommend doing the trial so you can play with what you are looking for on your big day. The whole team arrived on time to my hotel room and were ready before any of my bridesmaids, mothers, flower girls, and myself were ready. They were organized and made our experience incredible. I was so happy with my hair and makeup and it lasted the whole day. Everything was perfect thanks to Sarah and her team!

Stephanie is an amazing makeup artist. Easy to work with, friendly and professional. She gave me the perfect look for my wedding day. I wanted a look that "looked like me" but with a touch of Glam!! As requested, Stephanie focused on my eyes and made me feel at ease wearing fake eyelashes as I had never worn them before. Stephanie was punctual and I highly recommend Stephanie for any occasion! Thank you Stephanie for helping make my wedding day FABULOUS..... YOU ROCK!!!!

Phoebe came earlier to set up, finish on time and very calm person. I got a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup. I live in the bay area and no time to come by her shop for a try out in San Diego. I trusted her.

Learon costume designed our short film, STRING! She not only has a knack for fulfilling the vision of the project, but elevates the costumes by bringing her unique artistic sensibility and style. She's a joy to collaborate with and a huge talent. I look forward to working with her again.

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

Liz is my go-to makeup (and hair!) artist for all of my photoshoots! As a personal branding expert, I provide my clients with visual marketing strategy and a custom photoshoot. As soon as I started working with Liz over a year ago, I noticed a big difference in how my clients looked and felt during their shoots. They don't have to worry about how they look and they feel like a polished up version of themselves, which is key to their authentic representation in images. Liz provides a range of looks based on each person's unique style, and always brings out the best in each person. She's a master at matching skin tones and covering up blemishes while ensuring the right amount of coverage for a flawless finish -- this saves so much editing time! She is professional and makes my clients feel at ease, which is essential because they are going to have their photos taken. I highly recommend Liz for all of your makeup needs -- professional photos, wedding, special events, or just for some pampering and a confidence boost.

We have used Kim and her makeup and her styling skills on many occasions for video production TV commercials. I have also referred Kim to my family and friends who may be looking for a makeup artist for their wedding. Kim will be on time, give you excellent service and give you what you want! If you want the best, no need to look further!

I hired Cynthia to do my makeup because she is so talented! She has the makeup experience that ranges from subtle to dramatic, fun to romantic; and she was so accommodating! I loved my consultation look and feel even more in love with her work on my wedding day. She exceeded my expectations!! I showed Cynthia a photo of the look I wanted and she customized it to highlight my best features. She has great intuition when making artistic decisions and teaches while she applies. It was important for Cynthia to make sure that I didn’t feel over done. My makeup lasted all day!
