Shab did excellent work. My make up came out great for my event. She communicated before to get ideas of what I wanted. I will always hire her to do my makeup for my events.

Shabnam did an exceptional job on 5 of us for a wedding this past weekend. I am so glad I found her here on thumbtack. All the ladies were so happy with the job she did on each one of them. Even though some of the ladies were hard to please, Shabnam made sure to do exactly what they wanted and left them feeling and looking as beautiful and even more than they've ever imagined. Shabnam was even able to accommodate us with our budgets. Thank you so much Shabnam for your help on making us look our best for this event. I wish she did my makeup when I got married. :) Cant wait to have another event because I will definitely be getting in touch with Shabnam again.

Shab was wonderful!! I initially hired her to make up my 15-year-old daughter and 5 friends for a special event. She was very sensitive to not overdoing young girls and they all looked special and darling. I was so impressed I hired her to come back twice more and teach my 19th-year-old daughter and myself (50yrs old) some techniques. She was great at teaching techniques for each of us that were age appropriate and really listened to what we wanted as opposed to just doing the same face for everyone. Thank you, Shab!!!!

She did an absolutely amazing job doing my makeup for my high school Prom! She took the time to make sure I was liking my makeup at each individual step, starting out slow and giving me a lot of control over where the look was going! She is also such a nice person as well, with a very calming personality that even though I was a little jittery about Prom I felt fine by the end of it! She gave me exactly what I wanted and if I ever have another special event I will definitely pick her to do my makeup!

My friend and I hired Shab for our makeup for our company Christmas party and we were not disappointed. Between being very communicative and flexible, to being patient with our desires and listening to what we really did and did not want done to or makeup, Shab was excellent.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My new clients usually send me a photo of them first and then any looks they like online. I take the looks into consideration and do their makeup in the way that the look best suits them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started with MAC Cosmetics in 1996 and basically trained on the job.,, such an important time in makeup. Working for them during their early days was such an honor and a privilege.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My best friend is well-known celebrity Makeup Artist. Years ago, when she was starting out, she would try every type of makeup look on me. I was her guinea pig, haha. She would literally transform me one day from a Japanese geisha girl to an Afro-American disco queen. I fell in love with makeup by her hand and her inspiration.
