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.

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!

Chantelle provided wedding makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother. She did an amazing job making everyone look absolutely gorgeous and yet still natural and like themselves. My makeup stayed beautiful all night long -- after 12 hours, when I got home at the end of the night, it still looked incredible! She's also great fun to be around: chatty, funny, sweet, and just a beacon of light. She's exactly the kind of person you want around on your wedding day (or any day) to help you laugh and stay calm. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, have already recommended her to one friend, and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a makeup artist!

Can you rate someone 50 stars?? I have never been genuinely satisfied with getting my hair and makeup done before, and Liv is the first to make it happen for me. It was so nice to not have to awkwardly tell her I loved it when I was crying inside, I truly felt beautiful. Trying to find someone willing to show up at 5:30 on a Saturday morning was tough, and when she called to confirm she was super happy and excited, which made me even more excited for our appointment!! She was so nice, so peppy for the hour of the day, and listened to my preferences while giving her professional input to make sure everything came out perfect. Hands down the most amazing hair and makeup artist I’ve ever met!!!! Ask her about her cat Marvin if you need a good laugh. You cannot go wrong with her she is all around perfection

I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.

Jelise was awesome she rolled with the punches when we asked her to do an extra person on the day of the wedding. She also rolled with the punch when we changed the way we wanted our make up done last minute. She is a great makeup artist!

Kayla was very professional and humble, down to earth. She listened well to what I wanted and was open minded and willing to change anything I wanted. Even through got it down pretty much first shot. All in all I would call kayla again for my wedding and recommend to anyone who needs a great service and makeup done.

Tonia was awesome! I went to her studio which is less than 10 minutes from where I live so it's in the perfect location for me. She is very good at what she does, she was ready and waiting for me when I arrived and we were able to get right to work. I absolutely love how she asked for my opinion on everything. She even convinced me to wear false eyelashes for the first time, which not gonna lie worried me a little bit but after 10 minutes I didn't know they were on and they were pain free to take off. I knew within the first 5 minutes of meeting Tonia that I have to hire her for my wedding. Having her & her amazing skills & friendly personality doing my hair & makeup on one of the most important days of my life makes me so much more excited to get married. If you're looking for an awesome makeup artist, you must book Tonia!

Danielle is the best makeup artist ever! She does a wonderful job and is super flexible. She listens to see what kind of look you are going for and she nails it! I will only go to her for when I need my makeup done. It's very rare when not only is she fantastic at what she does but she makes the time that she's dolling you up a fun and enjoyable experience.

Angelie was beyond amazing! When I first started to look for a makeup artist for my engagement shoot here on thumbtack, a lot of vendors responded but none of them were as caring and as responsive as Angelie! She was very helpful and really understood the look I wanted to achieve. She showed up on time the day of and worked her magic. I could not have been happier with the results ! She made me look exceptional and I received a lot compliments. I can't wait as I am sure our engagement photos will look amazing! Thank YOU Angelie! Can't wait to work with you on the BIG DAY. :)
