I took two one-on-one makeup classes with Mayra over the past few years and loved both. I enjoyed chatting with her and learning about her profession, and she was very skilled in makeup application and instruction for Asian complexions and Asian eyes. I am tan Chinese with asymmetrical eyelids (sounds weird, I know), so I wanted to learn makeup application and foundation matching. I'd always wanted her to do my hair and makeup, but had no occasion for it until my sister's wedding. I booked an appointment with her a few months in advance for the morning of the wedding. I explained that I had to drive out to the venue and when I had to leave her studio, so she knew when to schedule my appointment and have me ready and out the door. We started promptly and she had me ready to go at the time she promised. There was no hassle and everything went smoothly from start to finish. My hair and makeup turned out beautifully! I brought the bridesmaid dress I would be wearing for the ceremony and speeches as well as the dress I would change into for the reception, and Mayra made sure that the look would match both the sparkly sequined floor length dress and the more demure, dark blue lace overlay dress. She was able to work with my long, straight, flat hair and create volume and a stylish bun. The overall makeup application was relatively quick and I could tell Tiffany had an expert eye gained from years in the profession. She explained how the foundation would look over the course of photos, ceremony, and reception, how I would only have to powder once but everything else would not need to be touched up, and how the makeup look would coordinate with both dresses and look fabulous. She also explained what color lipstick to use if the lipstick she applied on me wore off over the evening. Throughout the almost hour and a half appointment, she was very patient, easy going, and pleasant to chat with, whether about weddings, makeup, or skincare. I had a very pleasant experience. Everything Mayra told me was spot on - I only had to powder once, my makeup did not smear in the heat and sweat (even though other bridesmaids' did), and the hair and makeup looked wonderful with both outfits. So far I have not seen the official wedding photos but all the photos taken of me on iPhones have looked so beautiful and flawless, yet I looked very much like me and not overdone. I got so many compliments over the day and evening, and she made me so beautiful for such a special event. I highly recommend taking her makeup classes and booking her for future appointments. She won't disappoint - she is very professional and has years of industry expertise to back up the price tag.
I have worked with Teresa twice for my photo shoot, she is a really good person to work with - arrive on time, professional and fast. She know a lot knowledge about lighting on how it affects for the make up between indoor and outdoor. She is also easy to communicate as she is willing to meet up with you before the photo shoot, and after she understand your theme, she will design the make up in advance. I like to work with her, she is fun and I was very happy with the make up she made for my each different models. I highly recommend her for those of you who are trying to find a make up artist as professional as her.
Michelle was fabulous. I was so pleased with my make-up. She was on time and extremely professional. I will definitely use her again.
Anne was prompt in communication and understood what I wanted. She was a pleasure to work with. My make-up lasted through the night. Even after dancing! Anne's prices are reasonable, she also has a great personality. I will definitely use her services again. I recommend her to everyone.
Olivia was amazing! She took the time to meet with my husband and I to go over exactly what we wanted for our make up (Yondu and Gamora) a week before Out party. She was very professional, listened carefully and had great ideas. I felt so comfortable with her and knew we had made the right decision in hiring her! The day of, she showed up on time and had all her make up and supplies ready to go. She was so much fun to talk to. The end result was amazing! Could not have asked for more. We got so many compliments from our friends. Thank you Olivia! We will definitely hire you again!!
Jaime did my makeup for a work event. She did an amazing job!! She is very talented with blending colors and took the time to make sure it was perfect. I look forward to Jaime to do my makeup again in the future!
She did a amazing job for my bridal shower make up I was really pleased. And she is a sweet heart 😊 thank you for making me beautiful on my special day
I have gotten my makeup done by different people before, but I have to say Hazel has been the best! I requested a natural glam look and she achieved it just perfect! Plus her energy and conversations make time fly. I’ve recommended her to a few friends and they have all been pleased:)
As a former magazine beauty editor and now on-air beauty expert, I've worked with tons of makeup artists over the years. I met Liv when she did my makeup for my sister-in-law's Napa wedding, and since then, she's been one of my favorites. I loved how she made my skin look flawless and glowy without caking on the product. She chose beautiful neutral shadows that magically made my eyes appear bluer and bigger than ever. I highly recommend Liv. She'll make you look like the prettiest version of yourself.
I loved my make up and would recommend Jelise. I had make up done for a photo shoot, but would come back to Jelise for special occasion work too. She really knew how to blend everything to look more natural. Great work!
Julie is totally awesome as a make-up artist and she is a great person. Julie and her team came in early to help me getting ready for a very important event. The make-up and hair done were gorgeous. Thanks Julie & Team!
I can’t sat enough good things about Tiana. She did a beautiful job on my wedding make up, and she is a pleasure to be around. I ended up asking her to stay for the wedding just because I really liked her. She helped in more ways than just my make up. She was on time, kind, humble and genuine. I wouldn’t recommend any other make up artist besides Tiana. She made me feel beautiful without caking my phone full of face make up. Thank you Tiana! You’re the best!
Make-up is not one of my strong points! Emi made me feel immediately comfortable. That was so important to me. So, not only did I get the perfect end result- my make-up was flawless and I felt beautiful - I had the best experience. We laughed and I enjoyed every minute. Thank you EMI for helping to make my day so perfect!!
I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.
I got my make up n hair done from Maria for my baby shower n I must say she did a commendable job!!! Also she was on time andunderstood my requirement completely. I will give full credit to her for making my day special.
Lexi was very easy and pleasant to work with. She managed to make me look the way I wanted to look. Unlike other makeup artists that I've used, Lexi actually took the time to listen to how I wanted my makeup done, and my partner and friends/family agreed that it looked good on me.
I can not say enough about how wonderful my experience was working with Danielle for my bridal make up. Through out the whole process she was absolutely amazing - she made me and my 9 bridesmaids not only look stunning but feel absolutely beautiful as well. I highly recommend her to anyone for their make up needs!
Janea is so sweet and does amazing work! She makes you feel so comfortable and have you feeling like a million bucks leaving her chair! Shes always on time and set up quick! You're definitely in great hands when doing business with facedbyjanea!
Ashlee was awesome! Personable, on time, and my make up was fabulous! I would recommend her and use her again when I'm in The Bay Area.
