  1. #1 Makeup by Brenda Melendez

    (11 reviews)

    Janet Z.

    Brenda is absolutely amazing! She is very professional and good at what she does. I showed her a picture of what I wanted for my daughter's Quinceañera and she exceeded my expectations! Both my daughter and I were very pleased with the way we looked. I would hire her again in a second!

  3. #3 Candy Buck MUA (Candy's Concoctions)

    (15 reviews)

    Rebecca H.

    I hired Candy to do makeup for my husband and I for his 50th birthday bash. His birthday is on Halloween, so we had a costume party. Candy responded to my post quickly, remained in contact with me, sent example pictures, came on time, was prepared and professional. We received multiple compliments on our makeup and it was EXACTLY what we had in mind. I will hire her again next time!

  7. #7 ACREEBEAUTY

    (36 reviews)

    Antonia R.

    Joseph Acree is an incredibly skilled makeup artist & hair stylist. He is passionate in his craft and it really shines through onto his clients. I found him on Thumbtack 2 months before my wedding and after comparing pricing, reviewing his portfolio and asking a few questions, I immediately signed up for a bridal trial session with him. He offers very competitive pricing; it’s almost too good to be true. He also has a solid background in beauty and even instructs at EI, School of Professional Makeup in Los Angeles. For my wedding day, I wanted bohemian styled hair; down, loose, beachy waves. I also wanted to go for a smoky, dark, vampy look for makeup on myself (I am not your typical bride) and Joseph absolutely delivered! I look like myself in all of the photos and felt like a total beauty queen! Joseph did wonders with my hair for both the trial and the wedding day – I have long, fine, Asian hair, and he made my hair look like it was three times as much with voluptuous body, but not weighed down or heavy with product. Everyone thought that I must have had extensions, but Joseph just worked his magic with what I already had! He expertly did up a sexy smokey eye for me, which is not easy to do, since I have unique mono-eyelids, “monolids”. My eyes looked just how I wanted them - smoky and dramatic without looking like a drag queen. He even softly contoured my round shaped face and did a great job with defining my sparse brows. He was calm and composed on the wedding day and he worked quickly. This man is in his element! Joseph is extremely professional, down to earth and easy to talk to. Most importantly, he not only makes you look beautiful, he makes you feel beautiful. He is very flexible and willing to work with your needs and special requests. Bonus points for traveling anywhere from LA to OC to you on your wedding day for a small price. He listens and also shares his professional vision as well. He effortlessly captured my vision and look for my wedding day in one attempt. I wouldn’t hesitate in hiring Joseph Acree for your wedding day! Now all I need is him to be my personal glam squad and all will be right in the world. Move to Vegas Joseph! ;)

  8. #8 Victoria's Makeup Artistry

    (10 reviews)

    Stephanie H.

    Victoria gave me exactly what I wanted! She has a great eye for what will work on you. I ended up with the natural look I desired but also a good dose of glamour. She was punctual, a pleasure to have in a crazy house full of kids, and very professional. She even saved me from a terrible blowout with a few sweeps of a curling iron. Totally unplanned service but she was prepared and happy to help. I will definitely be calling Victoria again.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Alexis Ellen Makeup Artist

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

I love being of service to others, and art has been something I have expressed since childhood. Being face to face with each client allows me the opportunity to connect with them on a deeper level. Through listening to what each person wants, I'm able to create a look that lets their real beauty shine.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have been expressing my creativity through different forms of art. One day, I had the opportunity to paint a human face, at that moment, I knew I had to pursue the practice of makeup artistry.
