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.

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.

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

Amazing!!! Lily does such incredible work. Love the way my makeup turned out. And I felt really beautiful. I really wanted to look like myself, but the best version of myself. 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!

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!

Sarah and her team of girls were hired to do my whole bridal parties hair and a few of here makeup's! There were 8 girls who got their hair done and 4 who got their makeup done! Sarah and her 2 other workers showed up on time and started setting up and getting to work ASAP! They were very professional and very good at what they did! All of my bridesmaids and even my mother were extremely happy with their hair and makeup! Not one girl redid their hair like I've known many girls to do, and the makeup artist was on point in making each of my girls look beautiful! At one point my mom and another bridesmaid wanted something a little different and changed and Sarah didn't hesitate on fixing and making them as happy as can be! I would hire Sarah and her team of girls again in a heartbeat for anything that needed hair and makeup done! Thanks guys for making my very special day stress free and beautiful! 😊

Jessica and her assistant arrived on time with a light and all the tools. The reason for 4 stars is for the hair and having to tone down the makeup. The initial makeup was WAY too dark but Jessica toned it down and gave me a look a liked. However, the hair was curled towards the face in the front and the back was very messy. I ended up redo'ing the front sections of the hair after they left.

Ellie was great! Very professional; I do not normally wear a lot of make-up and everyone said I should have it done professionally, so I found Ellie. She listened to my concerns and more importantly she gave me exactly what I wanted. I just got my wedding video and I cannot believe how great my makeup and skin looks! Ellie was very affordable, she came to my venue and made me look and feel beautiful! I would definitely recommend her and I will be using her again the next time I have a special event to go to because her make-up rocked!

I had a great experience with Liz as the makeup artist I hired to do my bridal makeup. I booked a trial with Liz a couple of months before my wedding. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted and played around with different colors and products to achieve the look I wanted. After my trial and leading up to my wedding day, I decided I wanted to make a few changes to my look. It was easy to text Liz and let her know my changes, and on the day of the wedding, I got exactly the right look. Liz was always very responsive and extremely professional and I was very happy with the outcome.

Karina was great and is very accomodating to whatever time schedule you may have for your event. She made sure to arrive on time and also made sure she finished on a timely manner so I had enought time to get ready. Makeup came out flawless and stayed that way all day. I was a bridesmaid and was running around that whole day so I was very happy that my makeup stayed the same way. She also provided me with tips on how to make sure my makeup stayed on the whole day. I got a lot of compliments at my friends wedding. Definitely recommend Karina if you want good quality makeup that will stay on all day.
