I'm always so iffy when meeting with a new makeup artist. Many cake it on, some do too minimum or don't have the same vision of the makeup you wanted in your head. It's always a roll of the dice. But Annaliza was AMAZING! I'm so used to touching my makeup up myself or blending it better after I get my makeup done cause I can get so OCD over it, but with Anna everything was blended, smooth, & exactly what I had requested. She may be more of a perfectionist than me! Even if it was a tweak at your eyebrows, or a blemish not completely covered, she was on top of it looking for any faults. Ending result, there were none! It was the first time I tried to go out of my way to make sure my makeup stayed exactly how it was done, didn't change a thing. And of course, she has the sweetest, most down to earth, bubbly personality! She makes you feel completely comfortable,very easy to talk to, and always able to keep the conversation going. I completely adore her, by far the best makeup artist I've gotten to work with! So much so, I booked her again tomorrow! I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you Annaliza!

Rebecca is an absolute professional. She went above and beyond to help staff 5 Makeup Artists in both LA and Las Vegas. She and her team needed very little hand-holding, and produced high quality makeup at an affordable rate.

Shabnam did my makeup as a guest of a formal wedding. She's one of the most professional Makeup Artists that I have met. She asked me what type of makeup I wanted and she did exactly what I expected. She made me look sooo beautiful that I didn't want to put the mirror down. I received so many compliments about my makeup at the wedding, and people wanted to know who had done my makeup. I recommend Shabnam to anyone who is looking for a fantastic Makeup Artist. Azi Ashtiani

Priscylla is an incredible makeup artist and hair stylist extending across all age, skin, and hair types. I had myself, my mother, mother inlaw, 3 bridesmaids, and aunt done by priscylla on my wedding day and I was more than pleased. My sister is fair skinned, red headed, and my other two bridesmaids had dark hair and varying skin tones. Everyone looked incredible. Thank you for making us look so fantastic on our wedding day Priscylla! P.S. Priscylla was incredibly responsive and ALWAYS treated me kindly. I highly recommend 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.

I have to say traveling from Michigan to California to get married was scary. But what was even more scary for me was not being able to find the perfect makeup artist for my special day. I'm so very happy to have found you. You did exactly what I wanted without having to ask. You are very polite and professional and I would recommend you to everyone. Thank you again :)

I don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

Samantha is an exceptional makeup artist who I've hired several times and will do so again in the future. I am a commercial producer and I've hired Samantha for shoots for eBay, Levis and others. Her work is top notch. She is always on time, hard working and delivers the look we are going for. She is a genuine and warm person who loves what she does and gets along with everyone. She has a great knack for connecting with her subjects on a personal level and if you've worked with her once, you'll want to do so again.

Definitely the best makeup experience I've had. You will not be disappointed with Eloisa! She is very good at what she does, she doesn't rush it and most importantly, is very detailed when doing makeup. It is worth every penny. The makeup she uses is top notch and will last all day or all night.. trust me. I was very happy with the result and I know you will too :)

Lorena did an amazing job, I could not have been happier with the way my hair and makeup turned out. She came to do my hair, but because I was running late she offered to do my makeup for me too. It was super last minute, but she was still prepared and did an amazing job. My prom hair and makeup was on point. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs their hair and makeup done. Great job, and she was very nice. She was able to make good conversation and it helped keep things from being awkward. I had a wonderful experience, and she helped make my prom night that much more memorable. Thanks again girl! Great job 👌👍👍

Isabel is the most passionate makeup artist I've ever met. Money comes with what she does, but she mainly does it because she loves it. I thought my hunt for a good makeup artist will never end until I met Isabel. SHE'S THE BEST! I have weird eyelids but she somehow just knows how to work with them. She made me look and feel gorgeous every time she did my makeup. I didn't have to worry about providing anything for her because she had everything she needed. Trust me, she knows what she's doing. But even then, she still respects your requests. She charges for a decent price, but the outcome of her work is excellent. Isabel is very professional and responsive. She does her best to work around with your schedule if you want to do a trial with her. If you haven't tried Isabel, you're missing out! She's worth giving a shot! I had no regrets.
