Carina M.

Wedding and Event Makeup

Careli did my hair and makeup on my wedding day and she perfected every single detail. My mom also had hers done by Careli and she was extremely satisfied as well. She exceeded our expectations. I showed her exactly what I wanted, and she delivered that plus more! Overall, it was just a great experience! She didn’t only make me feel extra special and extra beautiful but she made me feel so comfortable. I’ve had my makeup done professionally before by others and my now husband always complained: “You look fake” and “It’s just not you.” Nope! Not this time with Careli :) She carefully and skillfully creates a work of art by enhancing your natural beauty. I can’t emphasize enough the quality of her work. I was able to see, feel, and hear her love and passion for what she does. She is very highly skilled! She was my angel sent from the heavens above on my wedding day.

Wedding and Event Hair Styling

I went through a rough round of Instagram makeup artists that were flakey before finding Careli. I am SO happy that process led me to her because I could not have asked for a better make up artist for my wedding day. Careli is so professional, prompt and sweet. All of this on top of being SO GOOD at her art. Her makeup style, which is glamorous yet not gaudy, was exactly what I was looking for. I am quite particular about my makeup and I was blown away on my wedding day by how much I liked my makeup. She did such a stunning job on every single one of my bridesmaids and truly I have never seen my mom look more beautiful. Every single person looked stunning. She’s also great with time management and communication. She even stepped up and covered a pimple on a groomsman! She’s truly wonderful. I can’t express how happy I am that I found her. I will for sure be booking her for future events!

Event Hair and Makeup

I needed a make up artist and hair stylist last December 23, 2016 for a family photo shoot and found Careli. I'm glad I did, she's great! I love my hair and makeup and it came out really nice on the photos. She took her time and listened to what I wanted. Careli is a new make up artist and definitely will be successful in the industry. She's also responsive on my text and emails so communication was not a problem. The only negative comment I have was that she was half an hour late to my appointment. Apparently, she could not find the La Quinta Resort & Club which is a big surprise as she is from the area. I would have given her a 5-star if she was on time. Anyhow, will definitely hire her again if I'm in the PS area.

I hired Careli for a music video shoot, and she was wonderful to work with! Her hair and makeup looks were excellent and exactly what we needed for the project. She is very professional and her hair and makeup work is the very best quality. I would love to work with her again soon and definitely recommend her!
