My friend was having Mayra do her makeup for a business video, and I tagged along, and got my makeup done too (since it was my birthday). What a treat! Mayra made me look great--like myself but way better. She was (as others have said) super relaxed and personable. But she's also incredibly knowledgeable about makeup--about which products are best for your skin, about how to make you look like you're glowing from within (isn't that what we all want) and how to use makeup for different purposes (stage, film, a social event, business). Too many makeup artists are one trick ponies, who only do the kind of makeup they themselves wear--not Mayra. She really listens to her clients and helps them achieve their goals. From now on I plan to book Mayra for all of my speaking events and social events. I'm hoping she will still have time for me, since she's so in demand!

Chantelle was the ultimate professional and very flexible with our on-site changes. She even assisted in helping us to secure an equally as good 2nd makeup artist when our original list became lengthy. I will absolutely use her again and recommend her.

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!

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!

Danielle is the best makeup artist ever! She does a wonderful job and is super flexible. She listens to see what kind of look you are going for and she nails it! I will only go to her for when I need my makeup done. It's very rare when not only is she fantastic at what she does but she makes the time that she's dolling you up a fun and enjoyable experience.

Can't say enough about Tonya! Trying to find a makeup artist for two Prom girls was not an easy task. Tonya made this whole process from scheduling to makeup session easy and pleasant. Her work was fantastic and overall the girls loved her work and will be calling Tonya back for future sessions.

Farrah was amazing to work with, I hired her to provide hair styling on a photoshoot and Farrah was a joy to have around. As a makeup artist in the community, I can vouch that Farrah is trustworthy, cares about the clients needs and is extremely professional. The hair styling was beautiful, and the guest was blown away with Farrah's talent. Would work with her again.

I cannot recommend Josanna more highly! She not only did such a beautiful job with my makeup, but she acted as my beauty coordinator for the day, hooking me up with my hair stylist and another makeup artist at the last minute for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. She was so sweet and supportive and was such a calming presence the morning of. I do not normally wear makeup so I was really nervous about how it would turn out and she did an INCREDIBLE job! She really listened to what I was looking for and made me look beautiful without looking too overdone. And the makeup lasted the whole day, even after many tears, sweat, and tequila shots! I could not be happier that I booked Josanna and will certainly recommend her to all of my friends!

Kayla was very professional and humble, down to earth. She listened well to what I wanted and was open minded and willing to change anything I wanted. Even through got it down pretty much first shot. All in all I would call kayla again for my wedding and recommend to anyone who needs a great service and makeup done.

I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.

Rogenda is very beautiful inside and out. I’m very picky on who I let in my face and in my space and she’s one of the few that I’m comfortable with. She has done some of my favorite makeup looks ever and she’s always been a pleasure to work and create with! I highly recommend her services!

I came to thumbtack looking for a great makeup artist to do my makeup for a holiday party I was attending. Amanda reached out to me here on thumbtack with a quote. After looking at her photos and seeing how responsive she was, I decided to go with her as my makeup artist. He communication style is very clear with no hidden costs; she is upfront with pricing and is very competitive for the quality she offers. She arrived at my house at the appointed time and set up all of her equipment. We talked a bit futher about the style/look I was going for and then got started! She was wonderful to talk to and made the process easy and very comfortable. The look came out beautifully, bold/smoky eyes with a subtle cheek and lip. Applying smoky eyes or any eye makeup to asian monolids can be challenging, but Amanda had no problems and made me look glamorous. I highly recommend her if you are looking for quality of work, responsiveness and an all round wonderful person to do your makeup. Next time I need my makeup done, I know exactly who to reach out to.
