Annaliza is amazing. She did my makeup for a wedding I was attending. She was on time, very professional and friendly. I don't usually trust my face to someone else (since I pretty much know how to do my own makeup). Also, I had never had my makeup done by Annaliza so I basically just took a risk and hoped she would make me look lovely. Also, I'm black and I was concerned that she may not have experience with black skin and that the foundation she would use would be the wrong shade (I've had tons of makeup artists who are basically clueless about makeup on women of color). Needless to say I had no reason to be concerned. I wanted a glam but natural look and she delivered. She made me look flawless, took into consideration the dress I was wearing and even suggested another shade of lipstick she thought would look better with the dress (I originally wanted red). Boy, was she right. The color she chose was perfect ans I never would have picked it for myself. She went the extra mile to leave me a sample so I could touch up my lipstick throughout the day. The interesting thing is that I never had to do that or touch up any of my makeup over a 12 hour period. I not only looked glam but also natural and that's not easy to pull off. Also, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that I actually fell asleep when she was doing my makeup. Finally, I never write reviews, but Annaliza surpassed my expectations so I decided to write one. Annaliza is plain simple, just fabulous. Next time I want my makeup done for an event I'm definitely calling her.

Sabrina was awesome! This was my first time working with her and through thumbtack. A little nervous (since I wasn't sure if I could really rely on the site and wasn't sure about hiring a complete stranger.) Sabrina came though. She was on time and very professional. I had a wedding to attend today, and needed to look good. Prior to the event, I had numerous conversations with her via phone, texting, and email about the hair style and makeup look I wanted. She was very easy to talk to, and very comfortable to work with. When I posted a question to her, she usually got back to me with in a couple of minutes. If not, she got back to me within a hour or two for sure (this was important to me because I needed to know if she was reliable. And she was). I am Asian. I know how hard it is to find an makeup artist really know how to do makeup right on Asians (another important point to me was to find someone that knows how to do makeup on an Asian lady). Sabrina was both for me. With Sabrina, I am totally happy with the way my hair and makeup came out today. I highly recommend her. I would certainly work with her again if I need my hair and makeup done in the future.

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

I would highly recommend Lily for makeup! She did my prom makeup and I loved it. She aked questions about what I would like often. She also did my hair and I loved how it turned out. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and the hairstyle didn't quite follow the picture but it still looked great! She was even willing to redo it when I asked her to change a little something. Lily was kind and helpful!

As a model, I've worked with countless hair and makeup artists. My least favorite part is how long the process takes, but then I decide the time investment is worth it for the finished product. However, Andrea has enlightened me to a whole other possibility. Andrea worked quickly...far more quickly than any other professional I've encountered. More importantly, my hair and makeup were perfect...better than professionals who have taken their time. If you are looking for a friendly, fast, quality professional, look no further!

I am so happy to have found Julie as my makeup artist. If there was one thing I was really stressed about for my wedding it was the makeup. I wanted to look like me and not a cakey overdone mess. I was so worried about it that I made up my mind, after already acquiring quotes which included Julie, that I would do my own makeup even though I knew that would stress me out even more. But my bridesmaids still wanted there makeup done so I went on the hunt again and luckily Julie was still available. I set up a consultation with Julie and told her the change of plans that it would be for my bridesmaids only and after seeing her work on my sister who very rarely wears makeup I was so impressed and excited that I changed my mind once again. I absolutely loved loved loved my makeup I was so happy to look like myself but just a little more glam haha. I felt comfortable and confident. She was so sweet and flexible especially at the end when we had to add more girls and some wanted specifics. Her and her assistant were so great and I would definitely definitely recommend and book Julie again. :)

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 could have not asked for a better hair and makeup artist! My makeup and hair was absolutely flawless thanks to Sarah! She did exactly what I was looking for when other artists could not. I recommend doing the trial so you can play with what you are looking for on your big day. The whole team arrived on time to my hotel room and were ready before any of my bridesmaids, mothers, flower girls, and myself were ready. They were organized and made our experience incredible. I was so happy with my hair and makeup and it lasted the whole day. Everything was perfect thanks to Sarah and her team!

Liz is my go-to makeup (and hair!) artist for all of my photoshoots! As a personal branding expert, I provide my clients with visual marketing strategy and a custom photoshoot. As soon as I started working with Liz over a year ago, I noticed a big difference in how my clients looked and felt during their shoots. They don't have to worry about how they look and they feel like a polished up version of themselves, which is key to their authentic representation in images. Liz provides a range of looks based on each person's unique style, and always brings out the best in each person. She's a master at matching skin tones and covering up blemishes while ensuring the right amount of coverage for a flawless finish -- this saves so much editing time! She is professional and makes my clients feel at ease, which is essential because they are going to have their photos taken. I highly recommend Liz for all of your makeup needs -- professional photos, wedding, special events, or just for some pampering and a confidence boost.
