I hired Julie to do makeup for myself, my bridesmaids, my mother, and my mother in law on the day of my wedding. She was able to make all of us beautiful with plenty of time to spare before photos started. Our wedding was the hottest day of the year- 107 in Fallbrook... But we all looked FLAWLESS the entire day. I had many people comment on how my makeup looked perfect even in that heat. She was so sweet and a pleasure to work with. I have and will continue to recommend Julie for her amazing makeup skills.

Loved working with Rebecca. She is a total pro and is able to adapt to any makeup style. I had a last minute red carpet event and she was at my apartment promptly with a huge array of makeup and colors. What I loved about her was that she always checked in with me every step of the way to make sure I was happy with the application and colors. If there was something that didn't work, she was right there prepared to change the color in a flash. She was a real pro. Her blending techniques and her application of false eyelashes were amazing. I have never seen someone apply eyelashes so quickly and so painlessly. There is a real art to putting on eyelashes. Loved the final product. It lasted throughout the whole evening! Her makeup was radiant and she was an absolute joy to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rebecca in a heartbeat! Made me feel beautiful and so relaxed! A true gem!

Shab did my make up for my NPC bikini competition and she did an amazing job. I usually do not wear much make up but her skills and knowledge made it easy for me to fill comfortable. She always made sure that I was comfortable in the direction that she was going in and always asked if she add more makeup or try something new. Overall one of the best makeup experiences I have had. Absolutely love it!

Lily was amazing! I hired Lily at what felt like the last minute and she completely saved the day!! My wedding makeup was everything I wanted for myself and for my bridesmaids. Lily listened to what each of us wanted for the overall look and tailored the application and shades of colors used to give everyone the same look, but ensuring that it complimented each girls individual features. Everything turned out amazing and the makeup lasted all day through tears, sunshine, dinner and dancing! I could of have asked for a better makeup experience. Thank you Lily!!!

Julie is the BEST! Working with her was absolutely fantastic. I was worried about finding a MUA online without a personal reference, because makeup styles can vary so much, but Julie really listened to what I was looking for and executed beautifully. She's also just a fun, awesome person. Our trial was fun and helpful for the big day, and I was so happy with the results on my wedding day. Thanks Julie!!!

Natalie is a VERY great person to work with. She is kind, fun & seems to effortlessly ascertain what look you are going for. Her studio is in a private setting (not in a mall) that is perfect for client comfort and privacy. Her skills with makeup and hair styling are remarkable, as well as her photography skills. She knows how to get you to make all kinds of expressions so you have a great variety of pics to choose from. She gets the photos back to you digitally and quickly and her retouching skills are awesome. I highly recommend her for more than just wedding photography.

What I liked most about Ruba is her ability to enhance the natural beauty by applying her artsitic skills in makeup to suite your event. She is up to date with makeup trends. She is passionate about the art of makeup and has her own unique classy elegant touch to it. She is definately my ‘go to’ person when it comes to makeup.

Sarah and her team of girls were hired to do my whole bridal parties hair and a few of here makeup's! There were 8 girls who got their hair done and 4 who got their makeup done! Sarah and her 2 other workers showed up on time and started setting up and getting to work ASAP! They were very professional and very good at what they did! All of my bridesmaids and even my mother were extremely happy with their hair and makeup! Not one girl redid their hair like I've known many girls to do, and the makeup artist was on point in making each of my girls look beautiful! At one point my mom and another bridesmaid wanted something a little different and changed and Sarah didn't hesitate on fixing and making them as happy as can be! I would hire Sarah and her team of girls again in a heartbeat for anything that needed hair and makeup done! Thanks guys for making my very special day stress free and beautiful! 😊

I did a makeup trial for my upcoming wedding with Perfectly Radiant and was very satisfied! She was quick to respond with any questions I had, and was punctual on the day of as well. While doing the makeup, she checked with me multiple times to see if it was too heavy, which was very appreciated since I prefer more natural makeup. She was also able to style my hair according to the pictures I sent her. I had an engagement shoot after the trial, and the makeup stayed on all day! (We were shooting outside around downtown LA, and I sweat A LOT--my fiancé was amazed that the makeup stayed on too haha.) I would definitely recommend doing a trial with Perfectly Radiant.

Jessica and her assistant arrived on time with a light and all the tools. The reason for 4 stars is for the hair and having to tone down the makeup. The initial makeup was WAY too dark but Jessica toned it down and gave me a look a liked. However, the hair was curled towards the face in the front and the back was very messy. I ended up redo'ing the front sections of the hair after they left.

Paru did my makeup and I was astonished with my makeup. I was able to send her a few looks that I was hoping for and the results were miraculous. I don't wear makeup on a daily basis and know almost nothing about makeup, Paru managed to give me little pointers while she was working. I felt extremely comfortable going from no makeup what so ever to having a whole face of make up that turned heads the whole night, and got many complements. The amount of variety Paru has to offer is incredible she went from doing my friends makeup to my makeup to another girls makeup one after the other and each look was different and what each girl asked for. I'm giving Paru five stars because this woman is unbelievably talented and there isn't anything negative I can say about our session. Her prices are very reasonable, and she is always happy to share information and tips.

We needed someone to do stage makeup for my 15 year old and MissO was perfect! She made my daughter look stage ready without the "caked on" look; on the contrary the makeup looked quite natural. She's very professional, friendly and talented and her price point is reasonable. I'd definitely recommend her and am looking forward to hiring her again soon for our family photo shoot.

Mindi was wonderful to work with. She’s super accommodating, sweet, fun, and does great work. I was happy to find someone who does airbrush and at such a reasonable price. My bridal party was a little untraditional and both moms were hesistant to have makeup done. But they both were really happy with how it turned out and everyone looks great in photos. I’m still getting comments on how good my hair & makeup looked for my wedding. I’m going to be going to her from now on as my regular hairdresser as well.

Aiprll has done my makeup for several black-tie occasions and her work is fantastic. Her work always exceeds my expectations and I’d highly recommend her for any occasion. She is receptive and kind and very much cares that I am left looking beautiful. She has a keen eye for accentuating one’s most attractive features and has given me many glamorous looks without going over the top. Many thanks Aiprll!

Karina was great and is very accomodating to whatever time schedule you may have for your event. She made sure to arrive on time and also made sure she finished on a timely manner so I had enought time to get ready. Makeup came out flawless and stayed that way all day. I was a bridesmaid and was running around that whole day so I was very happy that my makeup stayed the same way. She also provided me with tips on how to make sure my makeup stayed on the whole day. I got a lot of compliments at my friends wedding. Definitely recommend Karina if you want good quality makeup that will stay on all day.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
