My experience with Tamikka tells me everything I need to know about her level of customer service. I procrastinated on finding someone who could help me with my Halloween makeup (Maleficent). I posted my request for help on the same night. She responded within 10 minutes. The timing didn't work out (because of my procrastination). She emailed back right away and offered to do a phone tutorial for free! We talked for about 15-20 minutes and she walked me through every step, provided make-up brand recommendations and gave me great tips! The night was a huge success (she was even able to talk me through applying my first set of false lashes!). The next day I emailed her to say thanks and sent her a picture. I mentioned that the brand of foundation I had selected and used wore off over the night. She made another product recommendation and said she could send it to me in the mail!?!? Wow! Later that day she sent a confirmation that she had stopped by the post office and mailed the new foundation!!!! Amazing! She didn't have to offer any of this! She was friendly and incredibly professional! I'm looking forward to using her services at holiday time and will recommend her to anyone that needs not only their makeup done but values an impeccable level of customer service.

Jenn is wonderful! She did mine and my bridesmaids makeup for my wedding in November. She did a great job listening to what we wanted and making us look amazing from start to finish! My makeup looked just as great at the end of the night as it did when she finished first thing in the morning! Highly recommend working with Jenn for all your makeup needs!

Makeup is my passion. I am lucky enough to be doing what I love the most for the past 20-plus years. I am a licensed cosmetologist, and I provide services for hair, makeup, and skincare. I travel on locations for events, such as weddings, photo shoots, proms, and parties. In addition, I teach makeup applications to individuals and small groups. I use various products, such as Temptu (airbrush), Makeup Forever, Cinema Secretes, and MAC. For me, it is not just about hair and makeup but the connection I make with people. I look forward to making your special day even more special by providing excellent service.

Are you a trans woman new to femininity? Do you know how you'd like to look and act but just can't figure out how to achieve it? Or maybe, you are exactly who you want to be but just have trouble with makeup? Evan Kaminsky, San Francisco's beauty and grooming guru, is here to help. Evan's studies include acting, voice, movement, hair, body, makeup, and image. He was also once one of San Francisco's favorite drag performers, Faye Lasheo. Eventhough trans people aren't drag queens, Evan understands what it is like to look fabulous, comfortable, and natural while dressed in heals, foundation garments, and dresses. Utilizing all of these talents, Evan will work with you individually on any or all of the following services: * Voice class: Teaches you techniques to strengthen your upper register (high voice) as well as how to speak with a higher, more feminine voice. * Movement class: You'll learn the differences between how men and women move and how to alter your movements to be more feminine. * The look class, makeup: A class designed to teach you not only to apply beautiful makeup to yourself, but you will also learn the tricks of the trade to minimize masculine features and enhance the feminine ones. We'll also discuss hair and hair pieces. * The look class, body: You'll learn the differences between men and women's body shapes and forms. You will learn which foundation garments are available to achieve the look you desire. We'll even help you shop! * The look class, clothes: Once you have your makeup, hair, movement, voice, and body down, it's time to go shopping. Your consultant will guide you through looks that help you pass as well bring the wrong attention to your masculine side. You're pretty, and we'll make you flawless!
