Among st all of the wedding planning, I think finding a trustworthy and flexible hair and makeup artist is one of the hardest and most important items to find! After all, their work is what will live in ALL of your photos, videos, and family and friends memories! I found Mayra through Thumbtack at Make it Happen! From the start, Mayra was awesome. Very prompt to respond to questions, gave advice on ideas, and super accommodating to the changing # of women needing services. Her and Lluvia (hair) graciously were able to fit in one of my bridesmaids who initially did not want services until the day of and also my mom. What a relief! The trial was also a blast. We got to experiment with different ideas and also get to know their style. They are both so friendly, fun to be around, educational, and professional. I think the most impressive thing about both Mayra and Lluvia is their attention to detail. Mayra truly makes a canvas out of your face and applies makeup so diligently and meticulously. She blends the perfect shades for your complexion and genuinely considers what you like and do not like. She is also very inquisitive about what you like and do not like so she clearly understands what and how to apply your vision. Often times you show hair and makeup artists a pic and they can rarely match it - in this case they both matched the elements of the pics I was after that best fit my look and style. Every single one of my guests was blown away at their work and many of my engaged friends are now asking for their services. I am so thrilled for our pics!! Thanks again Mayra!

Chantelle provided wedding makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother. She did an amazing job making everyone look absolutely gorgeous and yet still natural and like themselves. My makeup stayed beautiful all night long -- after 12 hours, when I got home at the end of the night, it still looked incredible! She's also great fun to be around: chatty, funny, sweet, and just a beacon of light. She's exactly the kind of person you want around on your wedding day (or any day) to help you laugh and stay calm. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, have already recommended her to one friend, and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a makeup artist!

Anne was fantastic. I've worked with almost a dozen makeup artists and she was most definitely the best. I showed her a picture of how I'd like my makeup and she did a phenomenal job so quickly. The makeup lasted all throughout the day and night and I received so many compliments. I will certainly be requesting her service again. If I could choose one word to describe her work- FLAWLESS!

Vinnia was fantastic!!! I couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. All of my communication with Vinnia was done through email since I live out of the country. She was amazing at suggesting ideas for my hair and makeup. She was always very prompt with replying to my emails. I wasn't sure what to do with my hair since I was growing it out and I had only had my makeup professionally done once before. I showed Vinnia a picture of how I wanted my hair and she styled it turned out even better than I imagined. I had so many compliments on it! My makeup was beautiful too. Vinnia kept checking to make sure that I was happy and anything I wanted changed wasn't a problem at all. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their hair and makeup done too. Vinnia and her assistant arrived on time and had all of us done within the time frame she provided. There was no rushing around, it was very relaxed and pampering. My makeup and hair lasted all night long! I highly recommend Vinnia as a professional, experienced, and high quality makeup artist and hair stylist.

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!

I hired Cynthia to do hair and makeup for my wedding party (bridesmaids and flower girls) last Sept. 16th 2017. Cynthia is an excellent makeup artist. She was on time, stuck to her schedule and did wonderful job with my girls. Me (bride) and my girls and the flower girls are absolutely look stunning when she finishes up the makeup and hair. I never been so beautiful before until the day of my wedding, she definitely transformed my beauty into the highest level! I received a lot of compliments during and after my wedding. I personally recommend her to do your makeup and hair, she has a lot of experience and she knows what to do even if we didn't had to do a trial, I can tell based on what she did to me and my girls. Thank you Cynthia for making me look like cinderella on my wedding day!

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!!!

Tina was great! Out of all the make up artists that responded to my inquiry, she to me seemed like the most experienced and skilled make up artist that I was looking for. She was professional and knowledgeable in the field of make up. She brought all her make up, which she organized, laid and set out on her table that she had brought. Overall, she did an amazing job! Not only did she make me look beautiful, but I also felt beautiful and confident, ready for my maternity shoot and baby shower! Tina is amazing!

Tiana is amazing. I needed someone to come last minute and do my makeup for a wedding i was attending and she was more than willing to come and meet me as soon as possible! Not only was she friendly and professional, she was such a great makeup artist. She listened to everything i wanted but still added a little flare that made me look like i was absolutely glowing. I will for sure be throwing her name out there for anyone that needs their makeup done.
