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!

Chantelle was the ultimate professional and very flexible with our on-site changes. She even assisted in helping us to secure an equally as good 2nd makeup artist when our original list became lengthy. I will absolutely use her again and recommend her.

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.

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.

Cynthia and her team were fantastic! The trial was great because we were able to see what worked and didn't. the day of, they were consistently ahead of schedule-so much so that my mother (mother of the bride) who originally wasn't going to get her makeup done, was able to get her makeup done as well. All the makeups in the bridal party were flawless and the hair was fantastic. Definitely us Cynthia the next time you need a makeup artist because I looked wonderful and I know my pictures are going to turn out amazing!

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!!!

I am a professional singer and performer, I have dealt with hairdressers and makeup artists from all over. I have never dealt with a hairdresser or makeup artist, that has a more gentle and accommodating demeanor than Nadine! She literally lifted my spirits with her personality, and what she was able to make me look like! I highly highly recommend Nadine Michelle for makeup, and or hair, for any function where you want to look and feel your best! Absolutely excellent work! Sage

Christina and her team were amazing! They were available last minute when my hair and makeup lady cancelled on me 2 weeks before my wedding. I had 9 people needing hair and/or makeup and also had 2 last minute people added as well as some of my bridesmaids coming late and they were totally cool with all of it and got everyone done on time.

Cynthia was excellent to work with! She came over and got 7 of us ready for my wedding. She got through all of us in just under 4 hours and we all looked beautiful! Her trial was very thorough and she wanted to make sure she had the makeup just right. :) She also provided a list of beauty and makeup products she recommends. Cynthia was an absolute pleasure to work with, I've already referred her to a friend for her wedding as well! I hope to work with her again in the future!

Mari was absolutely amazing. She did makeup and hair for myself and all of my bridesmaids and my mom about a month ago for my wedding. She was punctual, thoughtful about the time, did incredible work, and was super fun! Everyone looked absolutely stunning. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends and family for other events.

Tess is a goddess of nurturing and feminity. I got to her a mess and she made me feel gorgeous and took good care of me. She did a romantic natural makeup look and kept my free spirit personality in my updo. I felt soft and feminine and glowing. She's the best!

I came to thumbtack looking for a great makeup artist to do my makeup for a holiday party I was attending. Amanda reached out to me here on thumbtack with a quote. After looking at her photos and seeing how responsive she was, I decided to go with her as my makeup artist. He communication style is very clear with no hidden costs; she is upfront with pricing and is very competitive for the quality she offers. She arrived at my house at the appointed time and set up all of her equipment. We talked a bit futher about the style/look I was going for and then got started! She was wonderful to talk to and made the process easy and very comfortable. The look came out beautifully, bold/smoky eyes with a subtle cheek and lip. Applying smoky eyes or any eye makeup to asian monolids can be challenging, but Amanda had no problems and made me look glamorous. I highly recommend her if you are looking for quality of work, responsiveness and an all round wonderful person to do your makeup. Next time I need my makeup done, I know exactly who to reach out to.

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.
