I cannot say enough amazing things about this company! Everyone was so impressed with our hair and makeup, my photographer even grabbed a card from them so he could recommend them. They are sooooo sweet and worth every cent they charge. So extremely happy with them. I'm so sad I don't have a picture to post with the review right now

Phoebe is an incredible makeup artist! I felt so beautiful on my wedding day and it was exactly what I wanted. Also, the makeup stayed on all night (even with happy tears haha). She is great at matching any photo or look that you are wanting and I was especially impressed of how she did my mom's makeup - my mom was nervous about it looking "too much", but Phoebe nailed the natural look and my mom looked gorgeous. The girls loved their makeup too. I would recommend Phoebe to anyone looking for a great makeup artist and she is someone you can trust for your wedding day.

I highly recommend Julie! Julie is fabulous. She styled my hair and did my makeup for a professional photo shoot for my business profile. I am extremely happy with Julie's service. She is professional, very experienced, and had an excellent understanding of the look I wanted and needed for my photo shoot. I plan to add my photo soon.

Jacqueline did a wonderful job on my Halloween make up! I showed her a photo of what I wanted and she did it exactly! She came to my house which was very convenient and took her time to make sure it was just right. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for good make up. :)

Vanessa is a very talented artist she is very professional, dependable and hard working. She always exceeds the expectations of her clients. I have worked with Vanessa plenty of times and I am so impressed with her work. Being in this industry i witness a lot of mediocre stylists but not Vanessa she is Top of the Line. You will be happy you went to her! If you want someone that will go out of their way to make sure you have the perfect look for your wedding or event you need to book Vanessa! Thank you Vanessa !

I don't even know where to begin, if I could give Sarah 100+ stars I would! She was amazing and so professional. She came to my rescue three weeks before my wedding after the girl I hired totally put me on the back burner. Sarah was there for me and made me her number one priority. Not only did she come to my rescue, she also accommodated my party of 10, yes 10. She made sure she had two other makeup/stylists to get the job done. They were all equally as amazing! She made me her number one priority, came to my house for a free makeup/hair trial that was absolutely gorgeous. She kept in contact, gave me options and was very organized prior to the wedding. On the day of the wedding, 8/20/2016, she was early, she and the other girls took such good care of my wedding party. The stylists fit right in, personable and had a great time while doing a great job. Everyone was so beautiful, I felt glamorous on my wedding day. She made everything perfect! Not only is Sarah an amazing makeup artist and stylist, she has a heart of gold and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to feel/look amazing on their wedding day!

I truly believe that applying beautiful natural looking makeup onto a person who usually wears none is one of the hardest jobs in the beauty industry. I am a seasoned hairdresser who has been doing event styling since 2010. My resume includes Fashion Shows, Pageants, Weddings, and I even placed among the top ten for Hairdresser of the year at the RAW awards in San Diego. Every photo I have in my personal portfolio is dependent on a great makeup artist to compliment my work. Avante Garde styles are easy and funky and many rookie makeup artists can pull that off. To really nail a natural look requires a very high level of skill. For so many reasons in my world it is important that both hair and makeup balance each other! Christine Tran is by far the best and most versitile beauty industry professional I have worked with in my career. I have almost gotten to a point that I won't come unless they have hired her to work with me! She is polished and on time and she arrives with everything she needs and more in an organized and clean kit. I have seen her blow through 10 bridesmaids ages (14-84!) flawlessly and without taking a break. Each one looks as pristine as the previous. She is fast and efficient and I have seen people change their minds close to the last second and she will change their look with a smile. When people wear false lashes for the first time they almost always complain that it feels awkward. Not if Christine applied them!! No complaining and no running behind schedule with this makeup artist! I look forward to working with you again Christine (a totally inevitable statement since every time we manage to get another gig booked the same day!)

My husband and I were in the process of a sudden move, and I desperately needed to have the apartment we were moving out of cleaned. This was my first time ever using a cleaning service. Elena and her team got to our place and did MAJOR work! They had our place looking sparkly clean, especially the bathrooms and kitchen sink. Wow! I wish I had taken a before and after photo. By the time they finished, our place looked so much cleaner than when we originally moved into the place. Would definitely recommend!

Phoebe and Gina were amazing. Gina worked with myself and all my bridesmaids to get the exact look for makeup each of us wanted. My eyes popped in every photo and my girls kept saying they were taking her home with them! Phoebe nailed every hair style beautifully. My hair was the perfect romantic style for my wedding. I could not have been happier! Thank you both so so much!!

I procrastinated with getting maternity photos taken, especially since I was not feeling attractive...but as my due date fast approached, I feared I would regret not taking photos. I scrambled not only to find a photographer, but also a dress, and almost forgot about having my make up done! Thuy from Fresh Face Era was so quick to respond and tend to my needs! I've seen Thuy's work through wedding photographers and instagram and was so happy that she was able to help me on short notice. She has a great eye for beauty and used her expertise to give me the natural make up look appropriate for a soon to be mom :). (but if I had a wedding or ball to go to, I would be more than happy for her to glam me up! I've seen her work and it's definitely glamorous!) The make up turned out beautifully on the photos. Thank you so much Thuy from Fresh Face Era for making me feel beautiful during times when a pregnant woman needed it =p.

I've worked with Julie Taing on many photo shoots and I must say that she is a true artist in what she does. Not only she was very professional and punctual, but also was very informative and gave a lot of feedback which in turn made the photos turn out better than I expected. Overall, it has been a pleasure working with Julie and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing make up artist with an abundance of experience in the beauty industry.

Chris responds to me immediately when I'm booking an appointment. She gets my color just right and is great about following my requests for cut, length, and color. Just moved back from out of state after several months and I'm excited to have Chris as my stylist!

I hired Cynthia to do my makeup because she is so talented! She has the makeup experience that ranges from subtle to dramatic, fun to romantic; and she was so accommodating! I loved my consultation look and feel even more in love with her work on my wedding day. She exceeded my expectations!! I showed Cynthia a photo of the look I wanted and she customized it to highlight my best features. She has great intuition when making artistic decisions and teaches while she applies. It was important for Cynthia to make sure that I didn’t feel over done. My makeup lasted all day!

Working with Meztli was an absolutely pleasure. In my experience there are 2 types of hairstylist. Those who do it because it's a job and others who do it because it's a passion. I could tell from working with Meztli it's a passion for her. I would recommend anyone to work with her. Attached are some photos of the job she did.

After having the same stylist for 13 years, I moved to San Diego and was in need of someone new. Ashley took time to understand my needs and was very open to my requests. At my appointment, she was on time and ready for me. My color and cut turned out beautiful, and I scheduled my next appointment with her.
