I have hired Sabrina on numerous occasions to do my makeup for the Oscars, the Grammy's and many other events over the last few years. I can always count on Sabrina to make me look and feel fantastic. I have recommended her to friends and clients of mine and have heard nothing but wonderful feedback about her work and her charming personality. Sabrina is a pleasure to work with on all accounts and is very reasonable with her rates. She is always my number one go-to makeup artist.

Rebecca help me with my 40th wedding anniversary make-up.I told Rebecca that I was not a make-up person very little daily or not at all therefore I did would to look over made up or not look like myself. (if you know what I mean). I must say Rebecca is a real professional make-up artists I got more compliment from people who know I don't wear a lot of make-up even my Husband Love the Glamorous Glitzy Look that wasn"t over done just enough.and still look like myself with Glam. I'm a women of color I was very skeptical going on the web looking for someone to do my make-up for my big night I'm really glad I did and run into Rebecca. she also did my daughter make-up. we were both very impressed with her professionalism she is the real deal we love her if you are looking for a reliable person that knows her trade she is the one would hire her again in a heart beat & will.

Rodolfo came to my hotel to apply make-up. He was punctual and very friendly. He was also knowledgeable on all the products and explained everything he was doing and why. I wanted the "dramatic " look for an evening wedding and he nailed it!! If I am in the area again I would definitely call in him.

Gabrijela is fantastic! She’s incredibly talented and you will always leave her looking better than you ever imagined! She’s very knowledgeable about makeup and techniques for all ages, skin tones and types. I have oily skin so makeup doesn’t usually stick and last all day, but Gabrijela knew just what to use and how to apply it to make it stay put. Definitely would recommend her if you want to look fantastic at your next event!

I needed my make-up done last minute, and Amanda answered the call. She asked good questions about what I was looking for, made sure I understood the process, and my make-up turned out just as requested. She was very accommodating (I have some make-up and brush allergies to contend with) and very pleasant. Would recommend!

I loved my make up. I was getting so many compliments and asked where did I get my make up done. She knew exactly what I wanted. She has great customer service and she's up to date with all the styles for makeup. Best make up I have ever gotten. I feel it's better make up than the MAC girls do at the mall.

Being a professional Photographer, I am always in the need of a make up artist for my models. I have worked with Crystal many occasions and she has always been so professional and prompt with her services. She listens to my clients wants and my needs with whatever scene I am creating and always finds that perfect balance to meet my needs and make the model feel comfortable in her own skin. She has even stuck around for the shoot and helped with things like pulling wrinkles out of clothes, fixing stray hairs and really anything else that I could use at the time. She is always dressed for success and looks very professional, displaying her products. After getting to know her, I found out Make up is her only source of income so she takes what she does very serious and is extremely passionate about her work. I highly recommend hiring her for any small job or big event and will definitely be using her in the future.

I have relied on Lesley's expertise for multiple occasions when preparing for a wedding, baptism, and birthday parties. Each and every time Lesley has surpassed my expectations. My skin is sensitive and has a tendency to get oily after a few hours so Lesley worked with my skin type and had me looking flawless all night long. She has a great selection of products that work with all skin types and individuales each session around your needs and wants. Lesley is also an amazing hairdresser and what's best than getting the full package in one session. I highly recommend and have found my make up artist for all occasions

Personally, Celina is very hard worker and talented beautiful person. I can guarantee you that you won’t regret when she does your make up. She did my 18th birthday party makeup and she did a amazing job. Celina has a soft arm when she does your makeup that before you know it she is done. She is very affordable and does excellent job in what she loves to do.

I usually dont write reviews but Veronica literally saved my hair! about two years ago I asked my hairstylist (i wont put his name on blast) to lighten my hair. All i wanted was choolate brown ( i was a dark brown already). He said he had to beach it and then dye it...i was ok with it...he ended up burning my head! I got blisters all over ( i still have neck scars from the blisters, they're sooooo ugly). It was like movie....when he washed my hair (after i was almost crying because of the burning) my haor started to fall out!!!!! I was left with verrrry thin,brittle, and crisppy hair. I was so embarssed. I was left with no choice but to find aaother hair stylist. I was referred to Veronica by a friend. As you can imagine i was skeptical and hesitant about letting someone touch my hair. But i reached out to her anyway and im glad i did. She condotioned my hair and nursed it back to health and didnt charge me an arm and a leg to do it! She got the ugly color out of it and taught me how to style it without having to use any straightners or curling irons. My hair is thick and healthy now. She is really sweet, patient, and afforable (and she even makes house visits 🙌). Now i use her for everything! Her and her team are doing the hair and make up (i love he way she does my makeup... she makes me look like a persian goddess and im mexican lol) my wedding and i couldnt be happier! I hate to share her (my secret beauty weapon) with everyone. But i know how terrible it feels not to feel like yourself because someone burnt your hair, cut too much, or charged too much. If your looking for a miracle at a descent price, call her! Thank you for all you've done for my haor Veronica. I hope this review was helpful guys.

Luz C.
Verified review

I was fortunate enough to have found luz recently, after i was on the verge of tears because of the horrible experience I had at the hands of a self proclaimed so called, "color expert" . I had a freshly botched hair color job on normally dry fine thinning already naturally frizzy hair. Nobody wanted to touch it. When I had explained to luz what happened to me and the fact it was color just done within past couple of days I just waited for the usual sympathetic reaction ultimately resulting in a polite refusal that I had been getting from others. Not the case with luz! She quickly set a window of time to devote to my hair disaster. She explained the process before starting making sure I was well aware and in agreement with the plan. Not only was she able to repair but she revamped my hair completely. My hair went from a dark hopeless dry frizz ball. To a now overall lighter hair color complete with highlights adding depth & contrast to my hair color. She deep Conditioned my hair and showed me how to flat iron so it wouldn't be as harsh and more effective in alleviating the frizz. Highly recommend her.

I had such a blast during my time at Cammua, I met so many wonderful ladies and Gia is so informative and helpful with any questions you have. I learned a lot of valuable information, among it was proper hygiene before, during, and after makeup application and the correct way to apply on each clients specific skin type and face shape, things you don't learn on YouTube! You can also retake the class as many times as you need to, can't beat it! If you're thinking about joining the program do it! You won't regret it, the knowledge and memories you make are priceless
