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 like how Liz did my hair and airbrush makeup. I heard my guests complimenting me that i look like a princess 😂. She is very accommodating and friendly. She even gave me a lipstick because i only have a lip stain and that my red lipstick isn't a good match to my makeup. Liz went on the extra mile to do some hair spray for the groom and blush/contour for a guest (which is not included in the service we agreed upon). Thank you so much Liz! I'd be sure to book you again.

Stephanie is an amazing makeup artist. Easy to work with, friendly and professional. She gave me the perfect look for my wedding day. I wanted a look that "looked like me" but with a touch of Glam!! As requested, Stephanie focused on my eyes and made me feel at ease wearing fake eyelashes as I had never worn them before. Stephanie was punctual and I highly recommend Stephanie for any occasion! Thank you Stephanie for helping make my wedding day FABULOUS..... YOU ROCK!!!!

Phoebe came earlier to set up, finish on time and very calm person. I got a lot of compliments on my hair and makeup. I live in the bay area and no time to come by her shop for a try out in San Diego. I trusted her.

Amazing!!! Lily does such incredible work. Love the way my makeup turned out. And I felt really beautiful. I really wanted to look like myself, but the best version of myself. Lily definitely provided that. I would highly recommend her airbrush makeup. It looks fabulous and lasts through the entire day . She has an awesome calming presence to have around the morning of my photoshoot! My hair turned out beautiful as well and The curls lasted till the next day!

I have worked with Julie on multiple occasions over the last 10 years. She does an amazing job enhancing a person’s natural beauty. I love working with her because she is an extremely talented artist and is always professional. It really makes a difference when your makeup artist listens to what you want and understands the look you are going for- Julie nails it every time! She has traveled the world as a makeup artist and is one of the top artists in our nation, I feel so fortunate to have such an amazing makeup artist here in San Diego! She is passionate about her artistry and really cares about perfecting each clients look! She always makes us feel so beautiful. Julie goes above and beyond. She has always does a fantastic job with my makeup over the last decade and always uses quality products. I highly recommend her for any event!

Thuy did the makeup for all of us bridesmaids and the bride. She was absolutely amazing! I didn't feel like my make up was too heavy and she really highlighted my features! I will definitely recommend her to everyone for make up!

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.

Alla did my makeup on a couple of occasions. Once for my friends’ wedding and another a personal photo shoot. She was very friendly and made me look beautiful, I was getting compliments all over. She is also very gentle and soft to the touch, careful in her work and takes in count all your wishes. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who appreciates amazing skill combined with great personality.
