I hired Jacynda and her team for my wedding. One month before my wedding my previous hair and makeup artist fell through. I was able to book the date just a month in advance! She was also able to do a last minute hair and make up trial for me the day of my bridal shower. This was a great first impression. She was punctual and very professional. I don't know much about make up, so she made some great suggestion. I also showed them a couple of pictures of what I liked for hair and make up and they easily worked with it. The day of my wedding they arrived early which was great. They worked through my bridal party quickly, but made sure that the girls got the look they wanted. It was a hectic day and they were both very calm and light hearted. They really made us look very beautiful. I would definitely recommend Plush Artistry! Thank you so, so much!

I am THRILLED to be working with Plush Makeup Artistry & Hair Design at my wedding! Jacynda is very professional! What impressed me the most is that she took the time to listen to what colors, looks and styles I would like at my wedding. She helped by giving me options and checked in with me every step of the trial application - This was great because I did not walk away with garish thick makeup caked onto my face. I walked away feeling and looking confidently beautiful! I would recommend PLUSH to any bride to be!

Plush did my bridal hair and makeup and my 13 year old daughters for my wedding on May 22, 2017. The ladies were very professional and did an excellent job. All they had to do was glance at the pictures we had of what we wanted and they matched it perfectly. Definitely recommend!

Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

Phoebe and Vanessa did the makeup and hair for my bridesmaids and I on our wedding day. Not only were they so great and easy to work with but the makeup and hair looked BEAUTIFUL. Their pricing was extremely reasonable and their work was phenomenal. Both my trials went exactly as I had pictures and Vanessa even teamed my hair the day of when I had a different idea of what I wanted-and it turned out better than I had hoped. Both girls were easy to get ahold of, checked in with me as the day got closer and were very punctual. With 9+ girls to do hair and makeup on, they had their work cut out for them and they did it flawlessly!

This girl is something else! by far the best makeup artist to do my makeup! Not only is Phoebe the BEST at what she does but also Is such a likable girl. She went out if her way to accommodate me to make sure my bridesmaids and I were picture ready on time. She even greeted me on my wedding day with a gift. Very thoughtful! Thank you :-) I really appreciate everything you did for me and will refer all my friends, family, anyone looking for a makeup artist!

I would say Jacqueline is Excellent if you need a makeup artist for your event. I was looking for someone to come to my house to dress me up for my baby shower. Jacqueline was on time but I was running so late. She patiently waited for almost an hour and a half while I was going through my traditional ceremony. After all that waiting she still worked on my makeup and hair with a smile. I'm so glad I had her come over to do my hair and makeup. Thank you so much.

Sara was absolutely amazing. She understood exactly what I wanted to look like for my big day and was able to make me look better than I had expected. What I loved about Sara is that she offers free hair and makeup trials which is such a money saver. She is very accommodating and will offer her opinion on what she thinks will work for you. She has a great eye for what she thinks will make you look your best on your day. I couldn't have been more happy with how my hair and makeup turned out to be. Sara is so nice, easy to talk to and a great makeup/hair artist! If you want to look breathtaking on your big day, you have to hire Sara. You will not regret it.

Wow! From the very beginning, Sara was super helpful in all aspects. She and her assistants did an amazing job with hair and makeup for 11 women on my wedding day. Everyone raved about how nice, sweet, understanding and talented they were. Sara knew exactly what to say to help relieve some of my stress of normal wedding day shenanigans. I could not have been happier. Thank you so much Sara!

As a model, I've worked with countless hair and makeup artists. My least favorite part is how long the process takes, but then I decide the time investment is worth it for the finished product. However, Andrea has enlightened me to a whole other possibility. Andrea worked quickly...far more quickly than any other professional I've encountered. More importantly, my hair and makeup were perfect...better than professionals who have taken their time. If you are looking for a friendly, fast, quality professional, look no further!

Andrea is amazing! My original hair and makeup lady did a horrible job, and I decided last minute to go elsewhere with my services. With only 3 days and no trial before my wedding, I booked Andrea and left all my trust in her. And let me tell you... She is amazing! My makeup was flawless and my hair was so beautiful! Thank you Andrea for helping me make me look beautiful on the most importance day of my life.

Pageant girls look no further! I hired Christine to do my hair and makeup to compete in a recent pageant. Christine and her team transformed a plain Jane working mom into a glamorous beauty queen. I felt amazing! Christine made me look flawless. She gave me smoky eyes, airbrushed my foundation and paired the perfect red lipstick to complete the look. Christine stayed with me throughout the entire competition and went above and beyond her duties as a makeup artist. She helped me changed into my evening gown. She touched up my makeup and she cheered for me in the audience. In pageants, we need to look and feel our best when we compete. I truly believe that Christine gave me the added confidence that I needed to take home the crown. I will be forever thankful to Christine and her team for helping me achieve my dreams of becoming Mrs. Asia San Diego 2016.

Christine did my makeup for my engagement shoot and wedding. She arrived in a timely manner and was a professional from start to finish. Prices are very comparable (if not better) than a lot of other pro makeup artists. Her make up is of great quality and I had the option of regular or airbrush. I let her choose for me and the makeup stayed fresh all day long. We made a very minor change for my wedding makeup, and she executed it flawlessly. I am very satisfied wit Christine's work and will use her again in the future. She is so good at what she does, I have already referred her to all those I know who are in need of makeup services.

I can't say enough good things about Steph!! I hired her to do our hair and makeup for my wedding. We don't live in California so we didn't get to do a practice run but it didn't matter, I was thrilled with the results! I interacted with several hair and makeup professionals but from the start, Steph was the most professional and most on-top of everything. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup, and it lasted all night. She was able to take our ideas, offer some advice and get us the look we wanted. Hire her! She will make you feel beautiful and special!

We had the honor of working with Steph last week for 5 client portrait sessions while working on location in Socal . Steph helped each client prepare for their session, which included makeup and light hair styling. Steph was punctual, incredibly personal and a total professional- making sure each of our clients felt 100% pampered. We were so thrilled with every single one of our client's looks. Steph is a joy to work with, and we only wish we lived closer to her so that we could hire her more often! We highly recommend her!

I would highly recommend Steph for any event!

Phoebe provided excellent service to my mother in law and myself. She did our hair and makeup for a wedding we were attending in Carlsbad. She was kind enough to come to the hotel we were staying at, at a reasonable fee. She addressed some makeup allergy concerns that I had and made sure to avoid them at all cost. Because of her gorgeous work, everyone at the wedding complimented us on how gorgeous we were. Thank you Phoebe!! We definitely know who we are calling when we having weddings to attend to in SoCal.

WOW!!! AMAZINGLY TALENTED women!!! They did an AWESOME job doing my bridal makeup and hair and 2 other women and one 12 year old girl in my group! I thought my trial makeup and hair were awesome!! My “day of” makeup hair exceeded the high expectations they had already set for them!! They are fun, friendly, talented, punctual, and their goal is to make you the most beautiful you can look. I cannot say enough about how phenomenal their work is. All night I heard about how I looked stunning for my wedding on October 14, 2017. My hair looked breathtaking, my makeup was stunning! If you are looking for a dream team of hair and makeup for your event, do yourself a favor and hire these women!!! They are worth every penny and more! 10 out of 10 stars from me! They went above and beyond and their prices are the most reasonable out there! I will definitely hire them again for all of my special occasion hair and makeup needs.

Thuy was amazing!!! This was the first time I've ever done a full makeup and it looked so gorgeous for my wedding day! I showed her a picture from Pinterest and it looked exactly how I wanted it to be. I decided to have my trial makeup the day of my bachelorette party and I forgot to take off my makeup after a night out. But my makeup was still flawless! Even the lashes were still intact! On the day of the wedding, she had a makeup chair and set up ready which I thought was professional. I love the mini gifts she gave on my wedding day as well! I definitely used the bandaids, the blotting sheets and mints! Thank you Thuy and her team!

Both Thuy and Grace are amazing at what they do, they made us looked wonderful for the big day but not only that, they are so accommodating (we changed our minds a couple of times about some factors) and they just went with the flow....I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking to get their hair and makeup professionally done: )

Chrissy did my hair and makeup for a wedding that I was a bridesmaid in this past weekend. Originally I was having her just do my makeup but then my hair lady canceled on me and Chrissy with no hesitation agreed to do my hair as well. She did an absolutely amazing job and made me feel so incredibly beautiful. She came to me and made it so easy for me to relax and just feel pampered without having to worry about anything. She is professional, very nice and most importantly does a wonderful job of keeping true to what you're wanting. Thank you Chrissy!

Never have I felt so beautiful in my life. When Julie handed me the mirror after she was done with my makeup I wanted to cry. But, I new better because I did I would ruin my makeup. She did my makeup for my wedding and I felt like a queen. My makeup was flawless and looked like it was airbrushed which it wasn't. She has a light had and so much talent. I wouldn't go to anyone but her if I needed makeup done in the future. Julie you're the best!
