Wedding and Event Makeup

Monica was super sweet and very talented. I loved the makeup job she did and I got a lot of compliments throughout the night. She made my prom night memorable, and I really appreciate the incredible job she did. the makeup that was used was great and lasted throughout the night, surprisingly I didn't sweat it out. I will definitely be calling her again for any of my future events.

Wedding and Event Makeup

Monica was incredible! This was my first experience getting my make up done and I loved Monica's work. She was so relaxing, accommodating, and freaking talented that it's insane! I had to crazy rush fly in from SFO, book it to get my make up done, then book it to a wedding and Monica was very kind with dealing with my flight delay and working magic in the adjusted time line. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to just relax and enjoy the make up experience! I will 100% use Monica again for when I'm back in the Bay for special occasions/just treating myself. I have fair skin with some rosacea on my nose and cheeks, so marks after acne or redness are things I'm self-conscious about. Monica made them disappear! She also knew what to recommend to flatter me, better than my Pinterest inspiration choices, and she was so right. Even after the wedding my coverage was flawless. Ladies, Monica will make you look like an Instagram star for the day, just sit back and let her!

Monica is amazing at her craft! I hired her for my wedding and she had me and my girls looking absolutely flawless. Not only does she know what she's doing but she's professional and trustworthy. I can't recommend her enough. Whether your event is as big as your special day or as small as date night, if you want to look your absolute best and be camera ready - hire Monica!
