Maria did my makeup for my wedding day and I cannot rave enough about how pleased I am! We did two trails before my wedding to make sure I loved the look I wanted. I found this to be essential when finalizing my look when it came to eye shadow shades, the type of lashes I wanted, and my lip color. We compared photos from both trails to make those final decisions. She is incredibly flexible, personable, and professional. She was extremely accommodating to my needs; I can be picky about my makeup. I appreciated how attentive she was to my bridesmaids as well. She gave them all a survey to gauge their skin type, makeup needs, and looks that they wanted. Furthermore, I was please about how she took her time with my makeup. Throughout the trails and my wedding day, nothing was rushed. She made sure that everything was perfect and met my expectations. I asked Maria to stay throughout my wedding day to touch up my makeup and I am so happy she was able to! I looked flawless the whole night! I highly recommend her!

This goes out to Maria and Adrienne! THEY ARE SO AMAZING AT WHAT THEY DO!!! I found these lovely ladies via Thumbtack and from the beginning, both were so kind and responsive. Maria did my trial and she literally has transformed the way I do makeup. She showed me what tightlining is, which seriously has given me so much confidence. I never knew why top eyeliner was a struggle for me. No matter how thin the line was, it still took over my eyelid. I have explained this to makeup artists before, but they just continued on with the eyeliner, which made me self-conscious, like one single black line takes up my whole eyelid. Maria explained to me that the shape of my hooded eyelids would benefit from tightlining, which is putting eyeliner on the upper lash line, instead of on top of it. WOW! I feel like a new person. I do it myself now and I just can't believe I never knew about it before. During the trial, I absolutely adored Maria, but I kept falling for her as she was just so respectful. She told me what the next steps were and asked if I'd like to see myself. Other trials felt rushed and I never saw myself until the end. She was so respectful of how I wanted to look: natural and probably even a bit bare as a bride. But she made me look like a better version of my usual self! Leading up to the wedding, Maria checked in and had us send our looks and preferences. I loved this as I was paranoid about not staying on track that day. I loved that she wanted to be so prepared. The wedding was chaotic, we just had a lot of people and unexpected situations arise, like high winds. Maria was patient and never made me feel like, "Hello, we gotta get this show on the road." She made sure I ate and every time I was scatterbrained on the chair, she let me do my thing! I just felt so accepted by her! My friends and I all got so many compliments and it's really more a compliment to Maria and Adrienne and their amazing skills! Last thing I'll say is that Maria also made sure to get some great photos of us! They're the "model" ones in the chair. This was one of my favorite parts and we wouldn't have thought to do them at all! Maria and Adrienne were one of the best vendors I went with for our wedding; I was always so worry-free and I know you will be, too. If I ever get my makeup done, it's going to be by Maria, if she will have me again!

It was very important to me that I find a makeup artist that could work with different skin textures and complexions because I had a diverse bridal party. From the few images I reviewed in Maria’s gallery, I immediately could tell her capacity and experience was expansive. She exceeded all of our expectations. My mother never does her makeup and was hesitant to go through with it, but that woman walked out looking like the most fabulous version she had ever seen herself in. She practically changed my mother’s perspective on life. Maria made her feel heard, comfortable and glamorous. It was challenging to find someone in Napa who had worked with ethnic and darker skin complexions. Getting Maria to drive out from the East Bay to Napa Valley was worth it. My Maid of Honor was taken back as she never seen someone work so swiftly and effortless with her skin color and eyes. Maria was so flexible and a joy to work with! Her products were clean and smells amazing. Her setup was very efficient and professional. As the bride, I felt like a goddess throughout my wedding day. She contoured my chest and highlight my arms. The makeup and eyelashes held up so so well. I encourage you to book a trial with Maria and see for yourself. She is a quality makeup artist that makes you feel beautiful in your own skin.

I am very happy with having Maria do my makeup/hair for my event. Maria was very flexible when I asked her to move up our schedule several times as my event was getting finalized. She is very professional and knows exactly what she's doing. I did not have a trial with Maria but her talent and years of experience shine through and she is willing to make minor adjustments to my look until I am completely satisfied. I highly recommend Maria for any makeup/hair needs.

Details: Wedding • 26 - 44 years old • Traditional makeup (applied with brushes, sponges, etc.) • Gentle glow • False lashes • 1 person • $$ (standard) • I travel to the makeup artist • The makeup artist travels to me

Oh my goodness, Maria was so AWESOME in EVERY way!! She did makeup for my wedding & it was the best, most pleasant experience with her. She did my makeup, one of my bridesmaid's, my mom's & my sister's makeup & everyone's came out SO beautiful!! It was EXACTLY as we wanted it to be--natural-looking but still good enough to hold the ENTIRE day as well as to look good in pictures. She doesn't cake on makeup on you, she helps bring out & highlight your best features. I definitely trust her 100% & am 100% confident she gets it done the way you want. I would DEFINITELY HIGHLY recommend her for anyone who's looking for a MUA for any event!! She genuinely cares, takes pride in her work & I've found a friend in her. Words can't even describe how awesome & amazing she is!! You'll just have to take my word for it, hire her & see for yourself!!
