Jen wore a beautiful fairy costume and reached the party location on time. The kids loved the ballon twist and the magic show. She was also very accommodating as we wanted to do cake cutting between her performance. Overall she lit up the party for the kids. The magic show could've been louder but it was just sufficient for the kids gathered around so no worries.
Chantelle was the makeup artist for my wedding November 22, 2015. She was prompt, professional, warm, and most of all - made me look better than I ever have before. Her techniques are unbelievable! From contouring, to the individual lashes, my wedding day makeup looked AMAZING! Somehow she made me look like myself, but more glamorous. I would highly recommend her for special occasions, or for any time you want your makeup professionally done by a consummate professional.
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!
Jennifer did an amazing job. She arrived on time, set up quickly, and cleaned up. She has an amazing way with kids. She did crowd control by numbering their hands so that they weren't fighting. For those who just couldn't decide she helped them by asking questions or modifying a look for them. My daughter who was the birthday girl wanted to look like Rey from Star Wars so Jennifer basically did her "makeup" and added some fun jewels and crowd on her forehead. My daughter was thrilled. I would highly recommend her. She is amazing.
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.
Seriously Cassandra is one of the most experienced and best makeup artists I've ever worked with!!! I cannot say enough great things! I've worked with her a few times. She can do any look you want!
This was the most spectacular service! The “glam squad” did hair and makeup for 14 young ladies for a homecoming dance. It was the greatest day ever.
Kimby was absolutely stunning as Princess Ariel at my daughter's 4th bday party. Her costume, wig, attitude was all more than I could have ever expected! She was punctual, friendly and totally connected to the kids the entire time. I was concerned she would be overwhelmed by all the kids vying for her attention all at once but she handled it like a champ! She was more than accommodating and patient and fun! I do wish she would've paid more special attention to my daughter (the birthday girl) but the most important thing is that all the kids had a wonderful time and didn't want her to leave! She kept me informed and communicated with me throughout the entire process as well. I will definitely hire her again!
All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!
Rachel was great to work with and the end result of my makeup job was really great. She was able to effectively and quickly translate my idea (Roy Lichtenstein face paint) into a great makeup job.
She's extraordinarily talented and professional! I love her work!! She did my Hair and Makeup for a professional photoshoot and I absolutely loved it, the care and time she put into making me beautiful were a clear reflection of her fantastic skills which made me feel more confident than ever and resulted in the most fantastic experience I've ever had when getting dolled up by a true doll and professional makeup artist like her ! I totally recommend her if you're looking for an outstanding MUA!
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.
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!!!
My experience with Angelie was outstanding! I was a bridesmaid in a wedding and she was the makeup artist for the bridal party. She was very organized and professional, which made things easier for us during such a hectic occasion. She had a good understanding of the kind of look the bride was going for and took the time to find out personal preferences, which resulted in all of us being absolutely thrilled with our results! My makeup held up all day and through the night and everyone looked amazing in the photos. Very happy and will definitely be using her for events in the future!
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!
Pinky arrived a bit late, but called to check in with me. She worked efficiently and quickly and got my makeup done in time for me to get dressed in spite of some phone calls (on my part). She was pleasant and seemed to know a lot about makeup. Well done, and a nice person.
As a former magazine beauty editor and now on-air beauty expert, I've worked with tons of makeup artists over the years. I met Liv when she did my makeup for my sister-in-law's Napa wedding, and since then, she's been one of my favorites. I loved how she made my skin look flawless and glowy without caking on the product. She chose beautiful neutral shadows that magically made my eyes appear bluer and bigger than ever. I highly recommend Liv. She'll make you look like the prettiest version of yourself.
Tina was great! Out of all the make up artists that responded to my inquiry, she to me seemed like the most experienced and skilled make up artist that I was looking for. She was professional and knowledgeable in the field of make up. She brought all her make up, which she organized, laid and set out on her table that she had brought. Overall, she did an amazing job! Not only did she make me look beautiful, but I also felt beautiful and confident, ready for my maternity shoot and baby shower! Tina is amazing!
Tiana is amazing. I needed someone to come last minute and do my makeup for a wedding i was attending and she was more than willing to come and meet me as soon as possible! Not only was she friendly and professional, she was such a great makeup artist. She listened to everything i wanted but still added a little flare that made me look like i was absolutely glowing. I will for sure be throwing her name out there for anyone that needs their makeup done.
Maria is amazing! She does my daughter's makeup for all of her special events and she's simply the best professional makeup artist. Maria continually exceeds expectations and she really pays attention to all of the details to ensure the makeup applied is what is desired. We are always very pleased with the end result. Also, Maria is always on time for her sessions and will always do her very best to accommodate last minute requests for appointments. Further, she's extremely nice and friendly. We love her!
Hazel is a great makeup artist! She is professional and always on time and makes she accomdates everyones needs! I would recommend her for any events/ styling/ weddings or even for just a simple makeover!
