Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

Lily definitely provided that. I would highly recommend her airbrush makeup. It looks fabulous and lasts through the entire day . She has an awesome calming presence to have around the morning of my photoshoot! My hair turned out beautiful as well and The curls lasted till the next 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!)

Stephanie is an amazing makeup artist. Easy to work with, friendly and professional. She gave me the perfect look for my wedding day. I wanted a look that "looked like me" but with a touch of Glam!! As requested, Stephanie focused on my eyes and made me feel at ease wearing fake eyelashes as I had never worn them before. Stephanie was punctual and I highly recommend Stephanie for any occasion! Thank you Stephanie for helping make my wedding day FABULOUS..... YOU ROCK!!!!

I like how Liz did my hair and airbrush makeup. I heard my guests complimenting me that i look like a princess 😂. She is very accommodating and friendly. She even gave me a lipstick because i only have a lip stain and that my red lipstick isn't a good match to my makeup. Liz went on the extra mile to do some hair spray for the groom and blush/contour for a guest (which is not included in the service we agreed upon). Thank you so much Liz! I'd be sure to book you again.

Phoebe came earlier to set up, finish on time and very calm person. I got a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup. I live in the bay area and no time to come by her shop for a try out in San Diego. I trusted her.

Ixz y is my go to makeup artist. She is the best at what she does. She did my makeup and hair for my baby shower about three weeks ago and I loved it. She is the sweetest and most talented makeup artist I have hired. Everyone complimented my makeup and I felt like a princess. She is worth every penny. She is the person to trust to do your makeup and hair for any event.

Chrissy did my hair and makeup for my friend's wedding. She was prompt, prepared and professional. I enjoyed chatting with her for the 2 hours she spent doing my hair and meticulously applying my makeup. She listened to what I wanted and made certain I was happy with the results. I would definitely hire her again.

Alla did my makeup on a couple of occasions. Once for my friends’ wedding and another a personal photo shoot. She was very friendly and made me look beautiful, I was getting compliments all over. She is also very gentle and soft to the touch, careful in her work and takes in count all your wishes. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who appreciates amazing skill combined with great personality.

Blue was amazing! We first met when he came to do my makeup for my bridal shower. And after that it was history! Haha I was hooked! I knew he was extremely talented about 5 minutes into us meeting. I instantly knew he would be perfect to do my makeup for my bachelorette and wedding. So 2 months later he was on a flight to Cabo for my wedding! Best decision ever! He was awesome and totally rocked it. He did my makeup as well as 6 of my bridesmaids, my aunt and mother in law. I loved everyone's look. He made my special day becoming a bride so incredible! He is my go to from here on out!

Amazing work on my hair and makeup. I’m EXTREMELY picky And very particular about how other people do my hair and make up. Often times I don’t like people to do it for me and I like to just do it myself but I trust Meztli to do it just the way I ask. Give her a shot you won’t be disappointed!
