Wedding and Event Makeup
I loved working with Fara she is very sweet and gave detail information in what product she is using. Guided me how to maintain my skin. She has a beautiful and cozy home where I felt confortable working with her on the makeup nd hair. I adored the Smokey feel look she gave on the eye. Sharing some pics here. She listens to your requirements and what you need for your look. She is a very experienced and talented artist. I will definitely continue to work with her.Mar 10, 2019VerifiedMake up by FARA's reply

This review is slightly over due because of a busy schedule but it was so important for me to commend Fara online. I had Fara booked for two evening events and she open her home and her heart to my sister and I. I will break down my review by different topics so I do justice to her work: - Please & professionalism: From our first conversation, I found her to be a really empathic and authentic person. She listened to my requests and budget and worked with me on my constraints. She afforded me flexibility on start time and boy did she work late to get both my sister and I ready! At the time of booking, I shared pictures of our outfits and the kind of look we wanted. This was be really useful because it helped her select the products she would need to use. When we walked in she was ready with all her products nearly organized and laid out in the work area, ready to begin. Her home was clean spotless and beautiful. It was supremely relaxing to be facing her beautiful backyard and get your face prettied up! P.S. she has so many products, it's like her home is a store! - Work quality: I can't tell you how many compliments I received both nights she did our makeup. She listened to the looks I had in mind and was able to pull off different looks both nights and for both of us! She also helped with hairdo for my daughter and for especially the second night, my little one looked great in her bun! I really liked her products and I appreciated how she researched additional products for the second night to help me with the huge pores on my checks. - Over and beyond: She worked over 4 hours with us and let both of us get ready for the event also at her home. She let us pray at her place and the fact that we got ready there was a huge token of kindness because most every artist permits that. She had her young girl play/babysit with my 4 year old the whole time thereby helping me out BIG time, not only with driving and logistics for getting her ready but also for my daughter to have SO much fun with her daughter while we were busy getting pampered. My daughter still wants to go back to play with hers! Would you believe it, her daughter and she gitfed my girl a brand new dress they had at home. All in all, I recommend Fara greatly and would go back to her again! Thank you Fara for A LOVELY afternoon/ evening at your place and for prettying us up so well!Apr 7, 2019VerifiedMake up by FARA's reply
Thank you so much I hope to see you again.
I was looking for a makeup artist near my place for my kid’s prom. Thumbtack was my last option as all salons near my place were fully booked on the date I wanted. Fara did a good job overall. We were very happy with the result. My daughter’s makeup lasted all night and she received compliments from all of her friends. We will definitely contact her again future booking. Thank you Fara for making my daughter’s prom memorable!Apr 19, 2019Make up by FARA's reply

I saw Fara’s work on ThumbTack and absolutely adored it. Her work is magnificent and she is also a sweet and marvelous person her self. She informed me on what products to use and how it helps to maintain my skin. The environment of her workspace is very calming and feels as if I were at my own house. Her experience and knowledge in the makeup industry makes her a viable option to everyone to come get their makeup done by her. In the future I will definitely come back for her expertise and because of the way I was treated and handled, I gave her 5 stars.Oct 29, 2019VerifiedMake up by FARA's reply
