I hired Jacynda and her team for my wedding. One month before my wedding my previous hair and makeup artist fell through. I was able to book the date just a month in advance! She was also able to do a last minute hair and make up trial for me the day of my bridal shower. This was a great first impression. She was punctual and very professional. I don't know much about make up, so she made some great suggestion. I also showed them a couple of pictures of what I liked for hair and make up and they easily worked with it. The day of my wedding they arrived early which was great. They worked through my bridal party quickly, but made sure that the girls got the look they wanted. It was a hectic day and they were both very calm and light hearted. They really made us look very beautiful. I would definitely recommend Plush Artistry! Thank you so, so much!

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.

I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

I would highly recommend Lily for makeup! She did my prom makeup and I loved it. She aked questions about what I would like often. She also did my hair and I loved how it turned out. I showed her a picture of what I wanted and the hairstyle didn't quite follow the picture but it still looked great! She was even willing to redo it when I asked her to change a little something. Lily was kind and helpful!

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!

Stephanie is an amazing makeup artist. Easy to work with, friendly and professional. She gave me the perfect look for my wedding day. I wanted a look that "looked like me" but with a touch of Glam!! As requested, Stephanie focused on my eyes and made me feel at ease wearing fake eyelashes as I had never worn them before. Stephanie was punctual and I highly recommend Stephanie for any occasion! Thank you Stephanie for helping make my wedding day FABULOUS..... YOU ROCK!!!!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

Phoebe came earlier to set up, finish on time and very calm person. I got a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup. I live in the bay area and no time to come by her shop for a try out in San Diego. I trusted her.

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

I can not say enough about how wonderful Chandra was not only on my wedding day but through the whole process. I was in desperate need of a makeup artist for my fast approaching wedding and a friend of mine referred me to Chandra. I reached out to her and she immediately responded back with what her bridal package includes and the pricing for myself and for my bridesmaids. All i wanted was a great makeup artist that would do airbrush and after seeing her list of credentials and her work on Facebook I could tell she does amazing work! Chandra was so helpful and accommodating through the whole process especially since it was hard for me to see her for our trial run since I live in the Bay area currently and she is in San Diego where my wedding was also being held. For various reasons we weren't able to meet for the trial run and I put my faith in her hands and met her in person for the first time the morning of my wedding and all i can say is I didn't regret not one thing. She did a fabulous job and I loved my very first airbrushing experience, all my bridesmaids were so very happy with how their airbrush makeup turned out as well and it definitely lasted all night long and I'm prone to get very oily in my T-zone! One last thing I wanted to mention that I loved about my experience was even though we never met until my wedding day, she treated me like a best friend from the get go with checking in on my planning, making sure I was staying calm through the process and not stressing and asking if there was anything she could do to help me!! What makeup artist who you've never met before does that and asks if you need help wedding planning!? Well I told her I was still in need of a hair stylist after the one I booked flaked on me and she referred me to Victoriaghairdesign who is a God with hair by the way lol. Chandra was a life saver for my wedding and is a person I would definitely trust any of my friend's weddings with.

Isabel is a consummate professional. Recently, I was in a bind and needed assistance with makeup application for a music video, she was kind enough to come last minute, bright and early in the morning to lend a helping hand. She was punctual, professional, and most of all very skilled. I could not have asked for a better partner that day and anyone who hires her will be getting a true professional makeup artist.
