I called Mayra to help me with my wedding that was going to be in 29 Palms in April 2022. We switched plans on a dime and decided to get married on New Year's Day 2022 instead. We had just 3 weeks to prepare and thankfully the world stops on New Years Day so she was available to switch the dates. The first time I talked to Mayra about the desert wedding I was immediately grateful. She was kind and genuinely cared about her role in our special day. Her congratulations and excitement were not perfunctory, they were heartfelt and I was aware of her deep care immediately and was so grateful that all my searches had led to her. Mayra is a loving, gentle, soul. You know this immediately when you speak to her. When you meet her you find a talented, present and engaged artist from that amazing space as well. We did our trial just a week before the Jan. 1 wedding. We talked and laughed and bonded over everything. I am not a make-up girl. I am a wash and air dry hippie type for my hair too. None of this is a comfortable process for me. I always feel awkward and insecure with too much attention. Mayra assured me over and over again that if there was any time for this pampering it was essential for my wedding day and I would not regret it. When she was finished with my trial hair and make-up I was stunned. She transformed me completely but in the softest, most natural way I had ever seen myself. She literally brought my wedding day dream to life and I left that day knowing I made the best investment in myself for my wedding. I got married in a beautiful, old home in Upland, CA that was build in 1906. The home had a dedicated dressing room so Mayra and I spent that time together. My nearest and dearest friends floated in and out of the room while we were getting ready. All of them loved Mayra immediately and we all had fun laughing and talking while she transformed me once more. The love of her craft and talent was a warm, kind blanket that held me for those two hours. I knew in my soul, she was delivered to me for this day and this time. She took care of my every need and even made sure to feed me while we waited upstairs for the guests to settle and the ceremony to begin. I will admit, when you don't wear makeup, it's always a strange feeling when your make up is done because it feels like so much. For someone like me, lipgloss feels like overkill next to my tried and true chapstick. Having Mayra do my makeup however, felt like second skin and she truly adhered to my hope to be as natural as possible. Hair: AMAZING. Makeup: AMAZING. The compliments and accolades never stopped, the entire day from my friends and family. I never felt more beloved or beautiful in my life. We got our formal pictures back from our photographer this Valentine's Day. Our mouths dropped. Mayra said the makeup would really pop in the photos and wow, I could never have imagined something so exquisite. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how amazing I look and cherish my photos. Mayra is everything you could ever want in getting your hair and makeup done. Everything you could ever want in meeting and connecting with another person for any special event upcoming in your life. She has a heart of gold and literally the Midas Touch. So much so that I made sure she and her daughter stayed with all of my most precious friends and family for our wedding ceremony and reception. She is a gift.

Mayra was amazing. She and her team did our hair and makeup for our wedding. She works quickly and a great job. The girls loved their look and felt so beautiful. The make up was nice and light, sometimes make up can feel so heavy and thick but not the way Mayra does it and it lasted all night !

Mayra is just a wonderful person to work with! She takes the extra time and care to work with you through your concerns, needs, scheduling, and everything that goes into getting glamorous for your event! I was so grateful for her patience and help as we planned (and rescheduled!) our wedding. I would recommend her because not only will she make you feel beautiful on your big day, but to have a positive energy around you as you get ready! Definitely be sure to check out her Instagram- it’s easy to see!

Mayra did an incredible job for my wedding. I feel like I gave her a huge task by asking her to style hair for 2 ladies and make up for 5. We were quite the chaotic group, but she was sooo patient with us. My bridal party, mother and I were very happy with the way we looked for the wedding. She gets an A+++ from us. I’d recommend her to all my friends and family.
