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!

Jen wore a beautiful fairy costume and reached the party location on time. The kids loved the ballon twist and the magic show. She was also very accommodating as we wanted to do cake cutting between her performance. Overall she lit up the party for the kids. The magic show could've been louder but it was just sufficient for the kids gathered around so no worries.

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!

Jennifer did an amazing job. She arrived on time, set up quickly, and cleaned up. She has an amazing way with kids. She did crowd control by numbering their hands so that they weren't fighting. For those who just couldn't decide she helped them by asking questions or modifying a look for them. My daughter who was the birthday girl wanted to look like Rey from Star Wars so Jennifer basically did her "makeup" and added some fun jewels and crowd on her forehead. My daughter was thrilled. I would highly recommend her. She is amazing.

Vinnia was fantastic!!! I couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. All of my communication with Vinnia was done through email since I live out of the country. She was amazing at suggesting ideas for my hair and makeup. She was always very prompt with replying to my emails. I wasn't sure what to do with my hair since I was growing it out and I had only had my makeup professionally done once before. I showed Vinnia a picture of how I wanted my hair and she styled it turned out even better than I imagined. I had so many compliments on it! My makeup was beautiful too. Vinnia kept checking to make sure that I was happy and anything I wanted changed wasn't a problem at all. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their hair and makeup done too. Vinnia and her assistant arrived on time and had all of us done within the time frame she provided. There was no rushing around, it was very relaxed and pampering. My makeup and hair lasted all night long! I highly recommend Vinnia as a professional, experienced, and high quality makeup artist and hair stylist.

Liv came to my rescue when I found out my makeup artist/hair doesn’t do my engagement trial during weekend. Not only she was available but she gave me such a great affordable price for trial and wedding. She also gave us discount for eye lashes! I knew she didn’t have to do that. She always responsive when I have questions. She listens to my ideas/wants. She doesn’t pressure me with anything. She has a fun personable personality which is easy to talk to and get along with. I definitely will recommend her to people and will hire for future special occasions.

Kimby was absolutely stunning as Princess Ariel at my daughter's 4th bday party. Her costume, wig, attitude was all more than I could have ever expected! She was punctual, friendly and totally connected to the kids the entire time. I was concerned she would be overwhelmed by all the kids vying for her attention all at once but she handled it like a champ! She was more than accommodating and patient and fun! I do wish she would've paid more special attention to my daughter (the birthday girl) but the most important thing is that all the kids had a wonderful time and didn't want her to leave! She kept me informed and communicated with me throughout the entire process as well. I will definitely hire her again!

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!

All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!

The only problem you have when Audra does your makeup is you never want to wash your face again!!!! She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional but she also was very educational and didn't mind answering all my questions about products and how to's. And her kit is immaculate!!!!!! In a perfect world Audra would be the only person that ever did my makeup! She is by far the best makeup artist I have ever worked with!!!

Amy is absolutely incredible!! Not only is her work amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable and really cares about her clients. She is very flexible and easy to work with. Living in Denver, I only had a short amount of time that I would be in California for the wedding, and she worked with my schedule to make sure I got a trial before the day of my wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and she made sure she had plenty of time to get everyone's makeup done so we were ready on time! On top of that, she was very reasonably priced and worked within my budget. She also found me a hair stylist that fit in my budget as well! All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself loved our makeup and it lasted all night. Her makeup is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend hiring Amy as she is definitely one of the best makeup artists I have ever hired!

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.

My experience with Angelie was outstanding! I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and she was the makeup artist for the bridal party. She was very organized and professional, which made things easier for us during such a hectic occasion. She had a good understanding of the kind of look the bride was going for and took the time to find out personal preferences, which resulted in all of us being absolutely thrilled with our results! My makeup held up all day and through the night and everyone looked amazing in the photos. Very happy and will definitely be using her for events in the future!

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.

Pinky arrived a bit late, but called to check in with me. She worked efficiently and quickly and got my makeup done in time for me to get dressed in spite of some phone calls (on my part). She was pleasant and seemed to know a lot about makeup. Well done, and a nice person.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
