How does your service stand out?

I listen to my clients and always give honest opinions. Good communication are very important and customer satisfaction is my number one priority. I've tried my best to respond in timely manner. You could find a lot of good makeup artist and hair artist out there (often with cheaper rate). I understand that skills are important but so do customer service. I always try to deliver both with balance, so you will look beautiful and stress free.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Meeting new friends,get to know each other, and make them happy. Not just make them look beautiful but I make sure when I leave I see smile on my customer's face.

    Vinnia is super professional. I've had a few make-up artists seem to fumble around with my face because of my monolids, but she knew exactly what to do. My makeup and hair stayed in place all day, and it was one less thing for me to worry about. I highly recommend her!

    Incredible Experience!
    Vinnia was so sweet and personable upon meeting her. I had a vision of what I wanted my hair and makeup to look like for my engagement photos, and she recreated it exactly! I was in love with the final look, and my fiancé even commented on how beautiful I looked, especially how beautiful my eye make-up was. I highly recommend Vinnia!

    Thank you Vinnia!
    Vinnia was awesome to work with. She responded to all my questions quickly. Her website and social media accounts provided plenty of photos for me to get a good sense of her style. Since I didn't have time to do a trial, I was nervous about how the make-up would turn out. She showed up on time for my 7am appointment, and I immediately felt comfortable with her friendliness and warm presence. When Vinnia first applied my eye make-up, I was a little freaked out by how dramatic the false eye-lashes looked, however, Vinnia listened to me and trimmed them to just the right amount. The photos looked great at the end. Thank you Vinnia!

    Thank you Carrie! It was my pleasure,can't wait to see your pictures! AND CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Helpful makeup lesson for teenager!
    Vinnia gave my teenage niece a makeup lesson. She was responsive and professional in scheduling, confirming and during the lesson itself. She was thorough, practical and gave a wide range of recommendations so my niece could pick-and-choose what would work for her (high-end, drugstore and for a wide variety of daytime and evening looks). She encouraged hands-on learning (she did 1/2 and had my niece do the other 1/2 of her face), picture-taking and note-taking of product recommendations and techniques (she even gave my niece a cute notepad to take notes and let her take it home).

    Vinnia was fabulous! She was so sweet and super helpful. She had no trouble coming to my home and hotel for my Engagement Photoshoot and wedding. She always checked in to see if I liked my makeup. She does amazing hair and makeup! She really knows to how work with your facial features and hair texture. My hair and makeup lasted from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. on my wedding night! I will definitely call Vinnia the next time I need my hair or makeup done. I highly recommend her!

    So happy!
    I'm so happy I found Vinnia to do my wedding hair and makeup. She was very professional and attentive. She remembered my feedback from the trial run and was very flexible with the bridesmaids and moms adding additional services the day of the wedding. Everyone was so happy with their hair and makeup. Thank you Vinnia!

    I had a great great experience with Vinnia. After the trail, I wanted to make some change about my eye makeup and after she did it my makeup looked great! My photographer said I'm one of his most beautiful brides and he's gonna put me on his portfolio! Thanks Vinnia!

    Vinnia did an amazing job!! I hired her for my wedding makeup and it came out beautifully. She accented all of my favorite features, and I did not feel overdone at all (even though I typically do not wear much makeup).

    Vinnia was amazing! I did not have time for a trial of my hair and makeup, but I sent her some images of what I was looking for, for myself and my two bridesmaids. On the day of my wedding Vinnia arrived on time and well prepared. She set up quickly and started with my two bridesmaids. Her hair and makeup were amazing! I don't think I have ever looked as good as I have on the day of my wedding! Not only did it look great for the ceremony but it survived the whole night, including a lot of dancing (and sweating). My bridesmaids also loved their hair and makeup and were simply beautiful. If you need someone to do your hair and makeup - look no further! Vinnia was very responsive before the event and very easy to work with. She is very professional and I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

    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.

    Vinnia is a complete professional. From seamless communication to the final touches, and everything in between. I am so happy we hired her (last minute!) for wedding make up. Vinnia and her assistant, Anna, completed make up and hair for 4 women in 2 hours. Our make-up stayed put all night and day in extreme heat. The hair was beautiful and went beyond our expectations. I can't wait to hire her again!

    Vinnia did our bridemaids makeup for our friend's summer wedding. She was very sweet, professional, and fast with the service! There were 4 of us getting makup done and I was worried about time but she arrived early to set up and got all of our makeup done with plenty of time to spare. The results were beutiful! It was a warm day but our makeup stayed on till late in to the night, never sweated off or ran. Highly reccommended.

    Vinnia styled my hair and makeup back to back on a Friday and Saturday for my bride and groom shots and wedding. She made me look and feel beautiful. She is very talented. I LOVED my updo. I wanted a natural, soft look with the makeup and she delivered. She arrived early and stayed until I was absolutely sure I felt great about my makeup and hair. She was patient with me and was happy to work with me to come up with the hair style, makeup and colors that I wanted.

    My first thumbtack experience could not have been smoother. Vinnia communicated via multiple emails in an exceptionally clear and quick manner. Her price was reasonable. She was punctual, friendly, professional, and responsive. And most importantly she did an absolutely beautiful job with prom makeup & hair for 3 teenage girls. Each was thrilled with the results. Thank you so much, Vinnia!

    I found Vinnia through Thumbtack and I'm sooooo glad that I did. She was perfect. Vinnia helped to make me feel relaxed on the actual day, because I knew she would do a fantastic job after our trial run. She listened to all my feedback and made me look amazing with just the perfect hair and make-up for my outdoor wedding. She was extremely punctual and professional. A+ will recommend to friends and family.

She showed up on time and made us both feel and look beautiful! She is very dedicated to her job and if you want to look drop dead beautiful for an event, I can guarantee you that Vinnia can make that happen! We are definitely going to use her again! - Nicole, and Sabrina

    My experience with Vinnia was very special. I am a 58 year old mother of the groom. Vinnia found me thru Thumbtack.com. I loved the way she did my makeup. It was the first time I have every worn false eyelashes and had my makeup professionally done. If I do say so myself - I looked beautiful. She has a way of putting you at ease. In the future I know I will have more special occasions to attend and will not hesitate to call her to make an appointment. Thank you Vinnia.

    Vinnia did an amazing job with my daughter's hair and makeup (and her two friends) for her 8th grade graduation dinner dance. They all looked beautiful and natural and were super happy with everything. Vinnia was right on time, very professional, and very talented. We would highly recommend her!
