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!

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!

SUPER SATISFIED Sweet Sixteen mom and daughter(s)!!!! LIz truly is an artist with both hair and makeup. I communicated my daughter's wishes with Liz via text, emai, and phone conversations. She was clear and honest about what would be possible for my daughters' hair and she did not disappoint. She listened to our ideas and also shared some of her own. Liz arrived on time, was super organized with professional makeup and decorative hair supplies, and was easy to work with. After finishing my 16 year old's hair and makeup she offered to braid my younger daughter's hair and apply some makeup free of charge. So SWEET!!! We definitely recommend Brides by Liz for hair and makeup for any special event.

Phoebe did such an amazing job on my hair and makeup for my 1920s themed wedding, we didn’t even do a trial run before. I was able to show her my dress and explain to her what I wanted and she delivered. I normally do my own makeup for everything since I love makeup, but I’m so glad I decided to get it done. I’m still continuing to get compliments on my look. I definitely would recommend her for your bridal needs!

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!

She is very proffesional and charismatic.

I've worked with Lizeth the MakeUp Gal on two occasions; once on set for a film shoot, and once for a personal makeup appointment. Both experiences were top notch. Quality of work, professionalism, and a great attitude to have around you. I'd reccommend her for any occasion. You come to her for the makeup, and get the bonus of a really solid person.

Blue was amazing! We first met when he came to do my makeup for my bridal shower. And after that it was history! Haha I was hooked! I knew he was extremely talented about 5 minutes into us meeting. I instantly knew he would be perfect to do my makeup for my bachelorette and wedding. So 2 months later he was on a flight to Cabo for my wedding! Best decision ever! He was awesome and totally rocked it. He did my makeup as well as 6 of my bridesmaids, my aunt and mother in law. I loved everyone's look. He made my special day becoming a bride so incredible! He is my go to from here on out!
