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!
Rose was fantastic but the other makeup artist she brought along was bad.
Ash came to my daughter's 3 year old birthday party and expertly applied a full face of "wicked witch" facepaint which my daughter loved! She was a witch for halloween and went around scaring everyone the rest of the party with her wicked witch laugh and facepaint. Ash was professional, excellent with the kids, astonishingly quick and I was amazed at how the kids sat perfectly still for her!
Chantelle was the makeup artist for my wedding November 22, 2015. She was prompt, professional, warm, and most of all - made me look better than I ever have before. Her techniques are unbelievable! From contouring, to the individual lashes, my wedding day makeup looked AMAZING! Somehow she made me look like myself, but more glamorous. I would highly recommend her for special occasions, or for any time you want your makeup professionally done by a consummate professional.
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!
Very responsible, great service. I loved the experiences. I had to change time and places for our kids party twice but Jennifer was soooo supportive and sent the great face paint artist. Kids loved her.
Vinnia was prompt, well organized and the BEST makeup artist I have had on the road! She even did a fantastic job getting my hair in great photo ready order!
Can you rate someone 50 stars?? I have never been genuinely satisfied with getting my hair and makeup done before, and Liv is the first to make it happen for me. It was so nice to not have to awkwardly tell her I loved it when I was crying inside, I truly felt beautiful. Trying to find someone willing to show up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning was tough, and when she called to confirm she was super happy and excited, which made me even more excited for our appointment!! She was so nice, so peppy for the hour of the day, and listened to my preferences while giving her professional input to make sure everything came out perfect. Hands down the most amazing hair and makeup artist I’ve ever met!!!! Ask her about her cat Marvin if you need a good laugh. You cannot go wrong with her she is all around perfection
The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Police Department's 2nd Annual Halloween Trunk or Treat was another huge success with thanks to so many people. The department showed up in full force to provide a safe, fun, and positive Halloween event for the communities near the South Hayward and Coliseum stations. Thank you so much to everyone who provided donations and also to those who attended the event with their families. Everyone’s participation was appreciated and contributed to the success of Trunk or Treat. At our South Hayward BART station, we were lucky enough to have two special guests: The Hayward Fire Department, Station #7 and the most incredible artist and face painter: Sarah Joy of Joyful Expressions. From the time Sarah Joy arrived, there was a long line of excited children waiting to have their faces painted. While they patiently waited, Sarah Joy provided pictures of her designs for the children to choose. She brought smiles to faces of the children and their parents as they watched sons transformed into batman and pirates or daughter into butterflies or Dia de Los Muertos. Sarah worked quickly and was able to accommodate a continuous line of children for 2 hours without any break. She was the highlight of our 2017 Trunk or Treat. We would highly recommend Sarah Joy and Joyful Expressions to other police agencies, community groups or families looking for a dependable, professional and creative face painter to add to your events.
I highly recommend Yvonne! She is professional and experienced makeup and hair artist. She's confident in her career, and she knows what she's doing. Not only her professionalism, her personality was great. She was warmhearted and nice. You would enjoy being with her. Do not be afraid to tell her what you want. She wants to hear your preferred styles, and she will work with you. Her goal is to make you happy. Your happiness is her happiness. Also, she loves her job. This is very important. Her positive work attitude truly shows to her works on you. you will look gorgeous because her heart towards her career is passionate. You will feel the joy she has in her, and that will make your experience with her more positive and fun. I guarantee you will refer to your friends after your trial with her.
I hired Celia for a Halloween party and she was the hit of the party! Would definitely hire her again...she's very professional, friendly and very talented. She's on my speed dial! :)
Lisa is an amazing facepainter! I wanted sugar skull for a Halloween party, and she came through in all manners. She fit me in at short notice, did a beautiful and fun face that got soooo many compliments. Highly recommended!
She's extraordinarily talented and professional! I love her work!! She did my Hair and Makeup for a professional photoshoot and I absolutely loved it, the care and time she put into making me beautiful were a clear reflection of her fantastic skills which made me feel more confident than ever and resulted in the most fantastic experience I've ever had when getting dolled up by a true doll and professional makeup artist like her ! I totally recommend her if you're looking for an outstanding MUA!
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 am in love with Jasmene's artwork! She is incredibly amazing when it comes to makeup! She is soo good! She's my to go to makeup artist whenever I need her! She's the best!
I had a Marvel Black Panther theme birthday party and what she had never done that facial design before. However a couple days before the event she had found a design showed it to me and on the day of the party the kids loved it. I loved it the parents loved it she did an awesome job. She was a very nice always smiling very professional I'm extremely happy that I hired her for my son's 5th birthday party. Though all of the children decided to get black panther she did do a couple other the designs that came out wonderfully as well. Her prices are also super reasonable. If you need a face painter that does arm designs and glitter tattoos and all that fun stuff I would definitely recommend her. I'm sure she'll probably beat this design so I just want to say thank you again so very much. Signed very happy mom.
As a former magazine beauty editor and now on-air beauty expert, I've worked with tons of makeup artists over the years. I met Liv when she did my makeup for my sister-in-law's Napa wedding, and since then, she's been one of my favorites. I loved how she made my skin look flawless and glowy without caking on the product. She chose beautiful neutral shadows that magically made my eyes appear bluer and bigger than ever. I highly recommend Liv. She'll make you look like the prettiest version of yourself.
Jelise was AMAZING! She is a sweetheart and did a great job with my makeup for a video shoot that I did with my band! I am hiring her again for our next video shoot because of how great of a makeup artist and person she is. She was punctual, nice, did a great job for my hair and makeup, and was even talkative (in a good way so there were no awkward silences)! We were happy with her work. Jelise, you are awesome!
An Amazing Makeup artist. I would definitely recommend her for important events. Loved her
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.
Loved Carina and her skills, I got exactly what I wanted a beautiful old Hollywood vintage style ! She is a local San Francisco makeup artist that has worked with many celebrities. So happy we chose her for our event. She was super attentive! Definitely recommend her!
