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.

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 Mae did an amazing job today August 6th 2016 for my sister's wedding. I absolutely loved my makeup as well as the bride and the other bridesmaids. My makeup lasted all day from 8:30am to 12 midnight and it still looked amazing. She is very professional and friendly. She is also punctual. I personally liked the fact that she made sure to ask me what I liked and listened to what i asked for; she did her best to accomplish it.

I did a makeup trial for my upcoming wedding with Perfectly Radiant and was very satisfied! She was quick to respond with any questions I had, and was punctual on the day of as well. While doing the makeup, she checked with me multiple times to see if it was too heavy, which was very appreciated since I prefer more natural makeup. She was also able to style my hair according to the pictures I sent her. I had an engagement shoot after the trial, and the makeup stayed on all day! (We were shooting outside around downtown LA, and I sweat A LOT--my fiancé was amazed that the makeup stayed on too haha.) I would definitely recommend doing a trial with Perfectly Radiant.

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

I had a great experience with Liz as the makeup artist I hired to do my bridal makeup. I booked a trial with Liz a couple of months before my wedding. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted and played around with different colors and products to achieve the look I wanted. After my trial and leading up to my wedding day, I decided I wanted to make a few changes to my look. It was easy to text Liz and let her know my changes, and on the day of the wedding, I got exactly the right look. Liz was always very responsive and extremely professional and I was very happy with the outcome.
