Anne was prompt in communication and understood what I wanted. She was a pleasure to work with. My make-up lasted through the night. Even after dancing! Anne's prices are reasonable, she also has a great personality. I will definitely use her services again. I recommend her to everyone.

I had a contract for myself and 2 of my bridesmaids. It included Bride makeup & hair and for my 2 bridesmaids only make up with lashes. Months before the wedding I had sent out pictures of the make up and hair due we desired. The day before my wedding Cassandra texted me the pictures I had sent to her previously of our looks. She said make up artist Ayana would arrive at my hotel door at 5:30 am to set up and start my hair @ 6:00am, then bridesmaid #1 @ 7:00am for make up and 2nd bridesmaid at 8:00am for make up then to follow it would be myself @ 9:00am to do my makeup. I agreed and said it was great sent her my hotel room number. I was aiming to be done by 10 am. Her make up artist Ayana showed up 1 hour late. I had called Cassandras mobile number 2 times and left a voicemail, she then texted me back at 5:55am," Hi! I just called Ayana, she must be running late! So Sorry!.." and "Just spoke with her. She's driving from San Mateo and said she'll arrive by 6:30 or so, which is more than enough time for everyone! No worries!!!" She started to work on me at 7:00am. Ayana did half of my hair and while doing it she used our crulying iorns because she only brought one. I was completely fine with it. Ayana mentioned that Cassandra never told her to show up @5:30am that she took the job because it was a last minute thing and Cassandra had no one else to do the job. She then continued with my make up & it did not come out nearly what I had previously sent to them. I was still optimistic being that it was my wedding day and I wanted things to go smooth. She did not completely finish my work and started working on one of my bridesmaid at 9:50am. By this time we knew she would not be able to complete my 2nd bridesmaid make up, therefore my bridesmaid left to MAC to try and get her makeup done. Luckily they took her in. My bridesmaid that had her makeup started at 9:50 am was still not complete and it was already 11am. I was not able to take pictures with my bridesmaid due to timing. Every one was running late. Finally, the bridesmaid who left to MAC came back looking flawless and Ayana had ask to take a picture because she would let Cassandra know she did not have time so she had to go to MAC. My other bridesmaid make up was HORRIBLE and rushed!!! 11:15 am and still not complete. She was also unaware that we were all doing lashes because she said Cassandra did not inform her. This was a very disturbing experience and I am looking forward for a refund! No bride should ever go through anything this horrendous. Moral of the story, if you have a small bridal party do not book them because you will not be their priority!!! Cassandra and I had a few text the day of my wedding. Anaya had lied and sent her a picture of my bridesmaid with MAC makeup and tried getting credit for it. I instantly gave her a little background of what had happened and Cassandra said she was not late and that Anaya had more than enough time to finish all three of us. Such a bad experience. Looking forward to getting refunded. Bianca Acero

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.

I have gotten my makeup done by different people before, but I have to say Hazel has been the best! I requested a natural glam look and she achieved it just perfect! Plus her energy and conversations make time fly. I’ve recommended her to a few friends and they have all been pleased:)

Monica was incredible! This was my first experience getting my make up done and I loved Monica's work. She was so relaxing, accommodating, and freaking talented that it's insane! I had to crazy rush fly in from SFO, book it to get my make up done, then book it to a wedding and Monica was very kind with dealing with my flight delay and working magic in the adjusted time line. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to just relax and enjoy the make up experience! I will 100% use Monica again for when I'm back in the Bay for special occasions/just treating myself. I have fair skin with some rosacea on my nose and cheeks, so marks after acne or redness are things I'm self-conscious about. Monica made them disappear! She also knew what to recommend to flatter me, better than my Pinterest inspiration choices, and she was so right. Even after the wedding my coverage was flawless. Ladies, Monica will make you look like an Instagram star for the day, just sit back and let her!

Make-up is not one of my strong points! Emi made me feel immediately comfortable. That was so important to me. So, not only did I get the perfect end result- my make-up was flawless and I felt beautiful - I had the best experience. We laughed and I enjoyed every minute. Thank you EMI for helping to make my day so perfect!!

She did an excellent job applying the make up and she was fun to be around . I've been to see Kyree before important dates or events and she nailed the look I was going for. I would 100% trust her for my own wedding makeup. She knows a lot about the specific products, she's an expert on the line itself, and is an industry professional . Most of all her passion for make up shines through her work and truly makes somebodlike their best version of themselves! I'm a big fan 💋✨

Mitasha is one of the best makeup artists ive worked with! Easy to talk to and connect with, shes just a great person overall. She has an excellent hand and eye to make any look suit me and she does take suggestions if I want my look to be a bit different than what shes doing. After getting my makeup done by many other MUAs, the quality of work, products, and results by Mitasha is by far the best.

I had accompanied my girlfriend to an appointment she had with Cella. My friend was getting her makeup done for an event she was attending with her boyfriend. I could not believe the amazing work Cella did. I have had many make ups myself and never looked as great as my friend did. Cella's talent is unbelievable. She clearly has an attention to detail that I like. My friend looked incredible and I can't wait to book my own appointment with Cella. She is my new go to for all my events.
