I have worked with Teresa twice for my photo shoot, she is a really good person to work with - arrive on time, professional and fast. She know a lot knowledge about lighting on how it affects for the make up between indoor and outdoor. She is also easy to communicate as she is willing to meet up with you before the photo shoot, and after she understand your theme, she will design the make up in advance. I like to work with her, she is fun and I was very happy with the make up she made for my each different models. I highly recommend her for those of you who are trying to find a make up artist as professional as her.

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

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!!

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.

I had a wonderful experience with Arden. She came over to give me a make up tutorial using my own products so I know how to apply the best make up based on what I already have. She's a great listener, very attentive to my preferences. She's a beauty expert, I would recommend her with the highest regard.

Lucy was so great to work with! We scheduled our appointment about 2 weeks before the date, and she provided me confirmations. On the day of she was prompt to arrive to my place on time and provided me an excellent service! My make up turned out amazing - both my photographers were happy with it. Thank you Lucy! I'll be keeping your info for future needs.

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.

    Daidra is one of the best artists I know! She has a way with a brush and can turn and average day into a fabulous night out. Every time she does my makeup I feel like a princess. The last concert I went to I knew exactly who to call to make me look like a rock goddess and she definitely did that! I have little skill with makeup and Daidra is awesome at showing me how to do a few simple looks. Every time she does my make up she helps me learn a little more. You can tell that this is something she loves and that she is dang good at. I would not go any where else and when my special day comes (maybe soon?) she will definitely be the one doing my makeup and making me feel like all eyes are on me. She truly is one in a million and one of 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.

    Rachelle has been my make-up and hair stylist for as long as she has been doing this. She's also amazing with manicures and pedicures! In the beginning, I always questioned her techniques because it made no sense, ESPECIALLY when she did my nails (like the time I told her I wanted butterfly nails and I was thinking to myself "wth is she doing?"... But OMG the results are amazing! No matter what the occasion is, she does my make up and everything and she knows when to make it extravagant or a simple beauty. Whenever I see her, she will ask me what look I want and I simply reply with "whatever you think is best." I totally trust her judgement and artistry. In fact, she's working on my wedding for me.... That's how awesome she is! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER! I'll also add that she's the only person that plucks my eyebrows and it doesn't hurt. It would take my 30 minutes to do it myself and it would take her 2 minutes... I don't know how she does these things without any problems.

    Tamra was an absolute joy to work with. We had some initial trouble finding a time and location that would work for both of us - Tamra was committed to finding a solution, but never pushy. Once we got together, it was clear that she had a great deal of talent and gave me some live-changing makeup tips that were easy to replicate. As a new mom, it was nice to take two hours away to update my look and routine and just focus on me. I feel as though the training she gave me will help me make the most of my precious time each morning so I can walk out of the house looking professional and refreshed, even after a night I've been up with the baby all night. She started the consult by asking me a few questions about what type of look that I was looking for, and then she worked her magic! She always made sure I understood each step, and never pushed me to create a look that was too "out there" for my taste. I left her chair feeling beautiful and confident, with personalized tips on how to integrate the new steps on a day to day basis. Definitely time well spent!
