I was so happy with my makeup. Everyone said how gorgeous it looked. Some of the pictures I showed as examples of what I wanted were really bold but she made me look perfectly "done up" rather than overdone or clownish

Cole (and his assistant) were at my home on the day of my wedding helping me get beautiful for the most important day of my life. Cole is reliable, professional, extremely talented and fun too! I am happy to say that I have hired Cole twice since my wedding. He has now done my hair and makeup for two other formal events. Cole has entertainment factor and has the talent to be a makeup artist and hairstylist for any event/makeup need. -Renee from Temecula

Theresa is such a wonderful makeup artist. She has done my makeup on numerous occasions, even for my wedding. I am always so happy when I get to see what I look like after she's finished. I like the more natural look and she is spot on. She takes the time to listen to how I would like it done and I never have any complaints. She brings out the the best features and not only does the makeup look good in real life, but in pictures too. I would recommend Theresa to anyone and everyone having a wedding, being in a wedding or any other special occasion.

I hired Cynthia to do my makeup because she is so talented! She has the makeup experience that ranges from subtle to dramatic, fun to romantic; and she was so accommodating! I loved my consultation look and feel even more in love with her work on my wedding day. She exceeded my expectations!! I showed Cynthia a photo of the look I wanted and she customized it to highlight my best features. She has great intuition when making artistic decisions and teaches while she applies. It was important for Cynthia to make sure that I didn’t feel over done. My makeup lasted all day!

Sueann is an excellent makeup artist, I have worked with her on a styled shoot and several runway/bridal show events and her work is always so perfectly 'on message" with the style and theme of the event. Most importantly she is real fun to work with and an awesome team member. Love to work with with her!

Kristal is the best! She’s very kind and thorough. I like that she takes her time to make you look your best and doesn’t rush through, which showcases her amazing quality :) I recommend Kristal to everyone who’s looking to get their hair and/or makeup done for any event - from everyday makeup to special events! I hired her to do my hair and makeup for numerous events such as: graduation, school ceremonies and when I was in a wedding(: Kristal also did the bride’s hair & makeup because the bride liked her work when the bride saw me on my graduation day! <3 Thank you for your amazing talent Kristal!!

I needed a last minute makeup artist for a photo shoot. I found MakeupSicknessByAly and she was so sweet and totally accommodated me by traveling to me! She was so funny and listened to every detail of what I wanted done. If you are looking for someone that you will be able to use for multiple events, give her a try, she is worth it!

Detailed, extremely talented, over the top service. I always go to her for makeup that ranges anywhere from "natural, glam, to special effects/Halloween" looks. Even for tips on how to do my own makeup.

I found Kristina through yelp, under beautyby_kde. I was looking for someone for my wedding. I have tried several make up artist and paid twice for a trial and all of them was a fail. I emailed Kristina because I really like her photos on yelp and I like how her reviews were very pleasant. I had my trial a few days ago and I'm positive that I will be hiring her for my event. She charge me $50 which was reasonable but if you end up booking her that money will go towards your event and I thought that was great because I didn't want to spend anymore money if I didn't have to. She was nice and professional and I like how she was very knowledgable and you feel comfortable with her. I'm happy I found her. Will be also referring her to my friend that is getting married in September.

Bryanna did my make up for 2 weddings. I LOVE the way she applied it. I completely trust her with my face. I felt so beautiful when she was done! She also did my teenage daughter's make up and she looked so beautiful too. It was totally age appropriate for her. I've seen her work on all different age women. She knows how to personalize for each age bracket. I only want her to do my makeup for all special occasions. I wish I could have her do my makeup every day!

I'm so happy I discovered Taylor. Taylor did my makeup for my engagement photos. She asked about the location (Idyllwild), she made sure the makeup was appropriate for the location. After having such a great experience with her I knew I needed her to do my makeup for my wedding day. She made me look absolutely beautiful. I didn't want anything too heavy(because I still wanted it to look like me). She played up my best features-my eyes and lips. Everyone I spoke to complimented my makeup. If you're looking for someone to do your makeup for a special event or if you want to try something new Taylor is your girl!
