Annaliza is very professional makeup artist. She is very organize and did a great hair and makeup  job with  the project I'm working on. She always comes up with a great idea and such a great person to work with. I would use her again to many more upcoming projects I will have.

Sabrina is amazing! I've worked with her on multiple shoots and she always arrives early, stays late and goes above and beyond her duties as a makeup artist. Talented with her craft and willing to do what it takes to make her models look and feel as beautiful as they desire. Hire her one time and then you will use Sabrina every-time!

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

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 don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

Alyssa was highly responsive from beginning to end, and remained a constant professional when we needed her to be flexible (as often is the case with unexpected changes at the last minute with weddings). She came prepared and was friendly throughout. She did absolutely great job with my hair and makeup. My only reservation was she was booked for other engagements and could not be flexible by staying later and that cut into the time it took to do the makeup for my mom. Instead of doing my moms hair I wished that time was spent dedicated on doing her makeup only. In my initial request, Alyssa was booked for makeup only for my mom so when she asked if my mom wanted hair too, we assumed she had time to do both the makeup and hair, and we did not think twice when Alyssa started with my mom’s hair first. My moms makeup was really the priority as I had requested. Alyssa did provide a $15 discount for the “light makeup” and I appreciate she did that. If given an opportunity to work with Alyssa again, I would book her again in a heart beat however my recommendation would be she clearly communicate given time restrictions on a day like; by asking if my mom wanted her hair done also lead us to believe she had enough time to do both. I would have preferred she concentrated on the makeup only as we had discussed prior.

Samantha is an exceptional makeup artist who I've hired several times and will do so again in the future. I am a commercial producer and I've hired Samantha for shoots for eBay, Levis and others. Her work is top notch. She is always on time, hard working and delivers the look we are going for. She is a genuine and warm person who loves what she does and gets along with everyone. She has a great knack for connecting with her subjects on a personal level and if you've worked with her once, you'll want to do so again.

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.

If you are looking for a professional make up/hair artist with great personality, Mindi should be your choice. I got so much complements for my hair and make up. I liked natural look for my wedding and her work was spot on. My photos turn out so well, I can't stop looking at them. Thank you Mindi for making this typically stressful day, a smooth and wonderful event.
