Mayra was outstanding! Very professional as well as experienced with all aspects of makeup spplication. She made my face look beautiful and flawless with a minimum amount of makeup per my request. I didn't want to look over done, and she really listened to my desired intention of what look I was going for and I felt natural and beautiful the entire night. I also wanted Mayra to put false eyelashes on me, but did not want them to be much longer than my natural lashes, just thicker and darker, and she brought with her, several different types lengths and styles to choose from. She did my shadows in my natural tones that I usually use and achieved the complete look I was going for. Then she did soft spiral curls to my above shoulder length hair and off I went to the birthday party event feeling full of life and confidence because Mayra did an amazing job and made me feel so pretty. Did I mention she's traveked all the way to my house over in Aptos from Sam Jose to accommodate me? Perfect!

I worked with StyleBee for hair and makeup services for myself and my bridal party and was beyond satisfied! Stylists were professional, friendly, accommodating, and overall contributed to a positive wedding day experience! I received many compliments, especially on my hair. And the ease of the stylists coming to us, rather than going as a group to a salon, cannot be overstated.

Vinnia did my makeup for my wedding and I was so impressed. She was responsive, friendly, and did such a great job. I really appreciated that she came to my place for the trial a month before, and then traveled to my wedding and was right on time. She made me look like Marilyn Monroe (as my mom kept saying haha), and then even did a complimentary hair and eyelash touchup for my mom when she was done with me. I couldn't be happier. Hire her for sure!!!!

Yvonne is an amazingly talented hair stylist & make up artist! She's also very nice and patient :). I booked Yvonne for wedding hair and makeup. She is super responsive over chat - she answered all my questions very quickly. I had my trial run yesterday and it went way better than I'd dreamed of. I don't usually put on makeup, but Yvonne was patient with me while I described what I wanted. I showed her some pinterest pictures, and she created a hairstyle I loved immediately. She also fixed my eyebrows and covered up my skin problems flawlessly with her makeup! She was also very patient with me when I told her my makeup preferences. Thank you Yvonne! I'm very excited to work with you again on my wedding day! :)

I absolutely couldn't have been happier working with Susan and the Jireh Artistry team. I felt like I was a little late to booking my hair and makeup team, one of the last vendors I secured for the my May 2017 wedding. This was the first time I used Thumbtack and to be honest was a little nervous, because I was worried that the net they casted to reach various vendors was very wide. Susan responded to my inquiry quickly and our back and forth was very professional and easy. She was very accommodating for the trial and I was so happy with how she worked my hairdo. I provided a couple of pictures and she put her own twist on it. Fast forward a few months to wedding day. The team was there on time and setup quickly to stay on schedule, actually ahead of it. There were a total of 15 services (hair and makeup) and we were timed perfectly. Everyone from my bridesmaid to my mom to myself were so happy with the work. The team was warm and easy to talk with. It is such a long chunk of time to be with people on such an important day and no one felt like strangers. Seriously so warm and fun. I consider this such a thumbtack success story. I would recommend Jireh Artistry to anyone who needs hair and makeup services. I honestly felt so confident all day. I normally never wear my hair up and usually am so self conscious when I do, but never second guessed my decision all day and felt like I only needed to apply lipstick, really no touchups. Thanks again for being a part of the most memorable day.

Jasmene did my makeup for my wedding as well as my wedding parties. She also did my makeup for my maternity photos and made me feel my best when I wasn’t exactly feeling my best. I’ve received tons of compliments on my makeup and photos thanks to Jasmene’s listening ear to hear what her customer wants and be able to actually execute the look. Thank you!

I've known Olivia since about June of 2016 (from EWC) and I knew she was a trained MUA so as soon as I got engaged, I asked her for a trial. I was blown away! Not only did she pay close attention to what I was looking to achieve, but she also gave me great tips and pointers. I ended up loving my trial makeup but wanted a few small changes for the big day. She was extremely welcoming of my points and kept on telling me that all she wanted was for me to be happy. When my wedding day rolled around, she arrive on time and with the most cheery disposition and positive attitude. She expertly made her way through my bridal party, starting with my MIL and mother. Both are in their 60s and the makeup she did on them was flawless. They looked radiant, and not overdone (which is quite tricky to achieve especially on older women). Both ladies LOVED their makeup. My bridesmaids also looked absolutely stunning, and Olivia even did a little bit of makeup on my 5yr old flower girl. Each time, she worked with each girls complexion and colouring to compliment their own look. When she finally got to me, she was patient, caring, and just a dream to work with. She didn't allow me to see the work in progress because she wanted me to be surprised. Let me tell you that when she gave me the mirror for final ok, I was so crazy in love happy!!!! (if I could swear to convey how happy I was with my makeup I would). I looked natural, radiant, effortless - even the hubs complimented on the makeup! All in all, Olivia is amazing. I will definitely come to her over and over again, and keep on recommending her to other women. Brides- do yourself a favor and CALL OLIVIA!!!!!! PS: she has a GREAT personality and will quickly become your friend :) Love you O

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.

This is almost a year late but Marissa did the makeup for my wedding in September 2013. She did the makeup for my two teenage daughters and myself. We were absolutely beautiful and stunning! I hope she has photos. She is great to work with and very professional. She does great work with ethnic faces! Hire her!
