Loved the make-up. First of all I was very nervous in booking some one at the last minute without any prior experience with the make-up artist. But Mayra was super friendly and she did a wonderful job for my make-up. Very happy with the out-come. I highly recommend her.
Rose is the best! She's an amazing professional, with unmatched quality of service and efficiency! She made me look 30 years younger on my wedding day (yup, that's what everyone told me). I couldn't have had a better hair stylist and make up artist! She's truly heaven-sent. I highly recommend her, and I'm blessed to have her get me ready for my Big Day! What an absolute treat!!!!
I had the pleasure of working with Chantelle'a company for my wedding. I scheduled with her for make-up for my bridesmaids. Chantelle was a pleasure to engage with & very accommodating! Our make-up artist was on time, very friendly, & engaged in conversation with all of the bridesmaids. I really enjoyed the fact that the make-up artist asked each girl specifically what she wanted & what she was comfortable with rather than just applying make-up however she wanted. Very pleasant. All of the girls looked beautiful & felt beautiful too :)
Anne did an amazing job with my make up and my wedding party's for my special day. She was friendly and professional throughout the entire day. She did a total of 6 people's make up and each one turned out incredible. My bridesmaid's looked beautiful and felt glamorous. My mom's stated she took 10 years and 10 pounds off. My make up was flawless I felt like the most beautiful bride ever. I would highly recommend Anne for anyone looking for make artist for there wedding or other special events.
Vinnia is super professional. I've had a few make-up artists seem to fumble around with my face because of my monolids, but she knew exactly what to do. My makeup and hair stayed in place all day, and it was one less thing for me to worry about. I highly recommend her!
Such a talented artist! She really knows her stuff, plus she is so funny! Great personality 10/10 and my makeup is poppin!
I had a contract for myself and 2 of my bridesmaids. It included Bride makeup & hair and for my 2 bridesmaids only make up with lashes. Months before the wedding I had sent out pictures of the make up and hair due we desired. The day before my wedding Cassandra texted me the pictures I had sent to her previously of our looks. She said make up artist Ayana would arrive at my hotel door at 5:30 am to set up and start my hair @ 6:00am, then bridesmaid #1 @ 7:00am for make up and 2nd bridesmaid at 8:00am for make up then to follow it would be myself @ 9:00am to do my makeup. I agreed and said it was great sent her my hotel room number. I was aiming to be done by 10 am. Her make up artist Ayana showed up 1 hour late. I had called Cassandras mobile number 2 times and left a voicemail, she then texted me back at 5:55am," Hi! I just called Ayana, she must be running late! So Sorry!.." and "Just spoke with her. She's driving from San Mateo and said she'll arrive by 6:30 or so, which is more than enough time for everyone! No worries!!!" She started to work on me at 7:00am. Ayana did half of my hair and while doing it she used our crulying iorns because she only brought one. I was completely fine with it. Ayana mentioned that Cassandra never told her to show up @5:30am that she took the job because it was a last minute thing and Cassandra had no one else to do the job. She then continued with my make up & it did not come out nearly what I had previously sent to them. I was still optimistic being that it was my wedding day and I wanted things to go smooth. She did not completely finish my work and started working on one of my bridesmaid at 9:50am. By this time we knew she would not be able to complete my 2nd bridesmaid make up, therefore my bridesmaid left to MAC to try and get her makeup done. Luckily they took her in. My bridesmaid that had her makeup started at 9:50 am was still not complete and it was already 11am. I was not able to take pictures with my bridesmaid due to timing. Every one was running late. Finally, the bridesmaid who left to MAC came back looking flawless and Ayana had ask to take a picture because she would let Cassandra know she did not have time so she had to go to MAC. My other bridesmaid make up was HORRIBLE and rushed!!! 11:15 am and still not complete. She was also unaware that we were all doing lashes because she said Cassandra did not inform her. This was a very disturbing experience and I am looking forward for a refund! No bride should ever go through anything this horrendous. Moral of the story, if you have a small bridal party do not book them because you will not be their priority!!! Cassandra and I had a few text the day of my wedding. Anaya had lied and sent her a picture of my bridesmaid with MAC makeup and tried getting credit for it. I instantly gave her a little background of what had happened and Cassandra said she was not late and that Anaya had more than enough time to finish all three of us. Such a bad experience. Looking forward to getting refunded. Bianca Acero
OMG! Star High Beauty came to our photo shoot and did all of the hair and make up for our girls who wanted to look ultra natural. Not only did knock down years on us OLD folks (Mid 30's w/3 kids) but we now have been getting major PR.... Make up artist who truly know their craft. Thanks Gals!!
Jennifer is a superb make-up artist. We had a video shoot for our company: 6 guys/2 gals: Everyone of them came out looking perfectly natural, professional, polished. There were plenty who never wear make-up in our group and even they felt comfortable. She's fantastic at keeping you in your comfort zone but making you look perfect. I'd hire Jennifer again in a heartbeat. She's a rising star!
My mother-in-law and her family were beautifully done-up for the wedding, and everything went smoothly! Great value, and very helpful that artists showed up at the hotel to get the ladies all ready.
Amy is absolutely incredible!! Not only is her work amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable and really cares about her clients. She is very flexible and easy to work with. Living in Denver, I only had a short amount of time that I would be in California for the wedding, and she worked with my schedule to make sure I got a trial before the day of my wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and she made sure she had plenty of time to get everyone's makeup done so we were ready on time! On top of that, she was very reasonably priced and worked within my budget. She also found me a hair stylist that fit in my budget as well! All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself loved our makeup and it lasted all night. Her makeup is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend hiring Amy as she is definitely one of the best makeup artists I have ever hired!
The only problem you have when Audra does your makeup is you never want to wash your face again!!!! She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional but she also was very educational and didn't mind answering all my questions about products and how to's. And her kit is immaculate!!!!!! In a perfect world Audra would be the only person that ever did my makeup! She is by far the best makeup artist I have ever worked with!!!
Emi is the best! She has such a great demeanor with clients. I'm always nervous about having other people do my make-up (I try to avoid that clown caked-on look that so often happens at makeup counters) but Emi eased my concerns and listened to what I wanted. My make-up looked amazing and I got tons of compliments! Definitely will use her again and referred all my friends to her! - Lauren
Angelie, was fantastic, as I was travelling from overseas she was so helpful with any advice I needed. She worked magic on my face on my wedding day ! I don't normally wear make up and she took this on board when applying my make up. I couldn't have got a better make up artist to do my make up on such a special day. The make up lasted all day and night. Thank you so much Angelie
it was my first time using thumbtack. I was looking for an in home to do my hair and make-up for prom. Jelise was very nice to set up my appointment right away. She did my hair and make-up and everyone at my prom said i looked beautiful. they really loved my hair and make up and they asked me who i got it from. i recommended them to Jelise if ever they need a make up/hair artist for a formal event, Jelise was very friendly and will do what yu want her to. Thanks Jelise (:
Miss Pink goes above and beyond her call of duty for her clients. She is an excellent artist and all around good person. I have seen her work turn heads and her before and after shots are incredible. I am not sure what this is for, but I will back Miss Pinky anytime, everytime. Hope this helps.
As a former magazine beauty editor and now on-air beauty expert, I've worked with tons of makeup artists over the years. I met Liv when she did my makeup for my sister-in-law's Napa wedding, and since then, she's been one of my favorites. I loved how she made my skin look flawless and glowy without caking on the product. She chose beautiful neutral shadows that magically made my eyes appear bluer and bigger than ever. I highly recommend Liv. She'll make you look like the prettiest version of yourself.
Tess is a goddess of nurturing and feminity. I got to her a mess and she made me feel gorgeous and took good care of me. She did a romantic natural makeup look and kept my free spirit personality in my updo. I felt soft and feminine and glowing. She's the best!
Hazel is a great makeup artist! She is professional and always on time and makes she accomdates everyones needs! I would recommend her for any events/ styling/ weddings or even for just a simple makeover!
Kayla did my hair and makeup for my engagement pictures.... twice. The first time it rained so the pictures were cancelled, but I loved her so much I went back to her a second time. She actually came to my house at 5am to get me ready for a sunrise photo shoot. She was so professional, knowledgeable, so sweet and friendly, so detailed, going above and beyond to exceed my expectations and make sure I loved how everything came out and I absolutely did! She does amazing work and is such a genuinely good human being, I am so grateful to her and I look awesome in my pictures thanks to her.
Manna has such a great personality and natural talent that made it an amazing experience to work with her. Her price are amazing compared to what other henna artists charge in the Bay Area.
