Where do I start? XO is AMAZING!!! Hands down XO is more than 5 stars in all 5 categories - Work Quality, Professionalism, Punctuality, Responsiveness and Value. She responded to my initial Thumbtack request super quickly. When I replied, she was available to talk right then. She asked all the right questions and really wanted to know what type of look I wanted. She has great people skills and we hit it off immediately. We set up the appointment for the bridal consultation. She came to my home which was so great because I had so many wedding things to do that week. I wasn't expecting that, but I appreciated it so much. She was ON TIME. That is so refreshing in Los Angeles because with traffic and parking and road detours, you just never know. The consultation makeup was beautiful and just what I asked for. She matches and blends foundation like the pro that she is. That's a BIG deal. I also had only worn lashes 1 other time in my life, and she was able to put them on me so easily. My eyes didn't even water. The makeup lasted from 10am to 11:30 PM. I actually took photos at 11pm that night and the makeup still looked great. Afterwards, I decided to make a couple of changes to the look and she was excited about it. On the wedding day she sent me a text like an hour or so before just saying "see you soon" which was so comforting for me to know that everything was going smoothly. She was again, ON TIME. That's a big deal to me and being consistent with punctuality in this city means that it is a part of your character. I didn't think the makeup could get more beautiful...but it did! It was even BETTER than the consultation. It was GORGEOUS!!! But I still looked like myself. XO knows how to make those eyes pop!!! The photos were amazing. I don't wear makeup everyday, so she made me look flawless but natural and not washed out for the camera. And she works quickly so you're not in the chair for long, but that's from years of experience. I got sooo many compliments, and I felt SO beautiful and my new husband said I looked SO beautiful too. (He is in film and wants to hire her for future projects as well.) Also, I never had to touch my face all day and night. I just touched up my lips ONCE after 9 hours. Seriously. Amazing! Her rates are very reasonable. For her quality of service and professionalism the value of what you are receiving is incredible, and the peace of mind is priceless. XO and I had a great time together! We talked and laughed and I will definitely be securing her services in the near future. Hiring a makeup artist for my wedding was a very nerve wracking and emotional task for me because I had been stood up by a makeup artist on the day of an important event. For that reason, I only work by referrals, but that didn't work out this time. It was a major leap of faith for me to hire a stranger, but I struck gold! Working with XO was VERY healing for me and why I wanted to be as detailed as possible in my review for people who have had bad experiences in the past. Plus, she deserves a stellar review because she earned it with her excellence. XO is great and you too will be happy you chose her to be your makeup artist! Kimberly

Beauty by Miss O
Su h a talented makeup artist!! My niece had a photo shoot and wanted a certain look. We sent MissO the look and she nailed it! The photographer complimented her makeup throughout the shoot. It never ran or has to be rouched up. We were extremely pleased.

Makeup by Julie Hirji
Julie nailed it. She did the makeup for our bridal group -- bride, 2 sisters and mom. She was nice, competent and completely met expectations.

Annaliza is very easy to work with and she made sure our actors looked great on camera in between set ups. Her makeup was very natural and she was able to do everything from beauty makeup to fake wounds (which looked very real!)

Long Flirty Lashes --Makeup & Hair Artistry
Lety is amazing! She was also very sweet! :) I loved my hair and make up! My make up was light, natural and beautiful. I do not like a lot of make up and she did a great job of making me feel like I had nothing on. I always felt that a great make up artist would not change your look but instead accent your natural beauty and that is exactly what she did! In regards to my hair it came out amazing! I honestly had no idea what to do, so she had me send her a few pics of something I might like. She was able to capture what I wanted and it came out original and beautiful!
