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.

Julie did an outstanding job at my wedding last week - I knew I picked the right makeup artist from the get-go! My wedding had a very early morning start, and Julie showed up earlier than everyone else to get set up. I got so many compliments on my makeup that day, as well as how sweet Julie was the whole time. In fact, Julie got hired by my best friend for a future event while she was getting her makeup done! I would definitely hire Julie again! Thanks!!

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.

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.

had a great experience with Lily for my wedding trial . First she came to my home for a hair and makeup trial. After doing my makeup and adjusted it till I was really happy with it we tried two different hairstyles; one up and one down. After each hairstyle, Lily took professional grade photos of me so I could take my time deciding which look I preferred and we could used the photos as a reference for my wedding day. 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 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!

Zorahayda was great to work with - she was super responsive to all my emails and questions throughout the planning process. She was very flexible in terms of timing for the day-of. She did my bridal hair & makeup, as well as 3 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. She was SO wonderful to work with. At my trial she took the time to understand what I liked and didn't like, then based on inspiration was able to create a style that was perfect! I got so many amazing compliments on my hair on the day-of and it was all due to her! I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

Su h a talented makeup artist!! My niece had a photo shoot and wanted a certain look. We sent MissO the look and she nailed it! The photographer complimented her makeup throughout the shoot. It never ran or has to be rouched up. We were extremely pleased.

Jen is a very skilled makeup artist. I've used her several times and I would definitely recommend. What I liked most about Jen is her ability to enhance the natural beauty by applying her artsitic skills in makeup to suite your event. She is up to date with makeup trends. She is passionate about the art of makeup and has her own unique classy elegant touch to it. She is definately my ‘go to’ person when it comes to makeup and she has a great personality over all!

Aiprll has done my makeup for several black-tie occasions and her work is fantastic. Her work always exceeds my expectations and I’d highly recommend her for any occasion. She is receptive and kind and very much cares that I am left looking beautiful. She has a keen eye for accentuating one’s most attractive features and has given me many glamorous looks without going over the top. Many thanks Aiprll!
