Thank you so much for making me look perfect! As a model I am very picky with how makeup artists do my makeup. However I was very impressed with Phoebe. She really knows what she is doing. I told her I had a long day of shooting ahead so she recommended I do the Airbrush foundation so I did and I absolutely loved it! I wish she could do my makeup like that everyday. The makeup wore great never fading or having to retouch never got oily! It was definetely the best. All of my photos looked perfect as far as the makeup went. Phoebe is very professional and highly recommended in my book. She is now my go to makeup artist for all my shoots. I am so glad my friend recommended her to me.

Rebecca is an absolute professional. She went above and beyond to help staff 5 Makeup Artists in both LA and Las Vegas. She and her team needed very little hand-holding, and produced high quality makeup at an affordable rate.

Shabnam did my makeup as a guest of a formal wedding. She's one of the most professional Makeup Artists that I have met. She asked me what type of makeup I wanted and she did exactly what I expected. She made me look sooo beautiful that I didn't want to put the mirror down. I received so many compliments about my makeup at the wedding, and people wanted to know who had done my makeup. I recommend Shabnam to anyone who is looking for a fantastic Makeup Artist. Azi Ashtiani

Lily did both hair and makeup for myself and my bridal party and she did such a phenomenal job. She is truly an artist, her skills for hair and makeup are on point! She was able to duplicate a look I wanted to achieve just by looking at a photo.

I cannot recommend Julie enough! She did my makeup for my wedding and she was such a delight to work with. I'm always nervous about others doing my make up because usually the artist does my makeup too dark and makes me look scary. I told Julie about my worries early, during my trial, she was really patient in making sure that everything she did was exactly what I wanted. I can't thank her enough for that. She was super easy to work with, super responsive, and ALWAYS on top of it. Given that I'm super Type-A personality and very diligent in making sure I get everything done at a certain time, it was super helpful that she was the same way as well. During my actual wedding day, she made sure that I was comfortable, really flexible in making last minute changes, and super helpful to my family if they needed something. She went above and beyond in her services and I was so thankful that I found her. Really, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed during my wedding day that it really just carried on throughout the night. I couldn't be more happy with my services and if I ever need a makeup artist to work with, I'll definitely use Julie again.

Natalie was very professional. She was personally dressed very nicely and looked very well groomed herself- which is an excellent sign for me. She listened carefully to what was required and what I was looking for in a hair up-do for a wedding I was attending. She was also applied makeup for me. The makeup application looked amazing. Fantastic job overall. Would highly recommend Natalie if you need hair up-do and make up for a formal event.

Priscylla is an incredible makeup artist and hair stylist extending across all age, skin, and hair types. I had myself, my mother, mother inlaw, 3 bridesmaids, and aunt done by priscylla on my wedding day and I was more than pleased. My sister is fair skinned, red headed, and my other two bridesmaids had dark hair and varying skin tones. Everyone looked incredible. Thank you for making us look so fantastic on our wedding day Priscylla! P.S. Priscylla was incredibly responsive and ALWAYS treated me kindly. I highly recommend her!

I have to say traveling from Michigan to California to get married was scary. But what was even more scary for me was not being able to find the perfect makeup artist for my special day. I'm so very happy to have found you. You did exactly what I wanted without having to ask. You are very polite and professional and I would recommend you to everyone. Thank you again :)

She created beautiful face painting images for the children as well as twisting balloons. she arrived in time and had all the supplies ready to go as well as whimsical music to hear in the background! Would highly recommend for any children's party! Kids loved her!

Zorahayda was great to work with - she was super responsive to all my emails and questions throughout the planning process. She was very flexible in terms of timing for the day-of. She did my bridal hair & makeup, as well as 3 bridesmaids and mother of the bride. She was SO wonderful to work with. At my trial she took the time to understand what I liked and didn't like, then based on inspiration was able to create a style that was perfect! I got so many amazing compliments on my hair on the day-of and it was all due to her! I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding!

Su h a talented makeup artist!! My niece had a photo shoot and wanted a certain look. We sent MissO the look and she nailed it! The photographer complimented her makeup throughout the shoot. It never ran or has to be rouched up. We were extremely pleased.

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.

Definitely the best makeup experience I've had. You will not be disappointed with Eloisa! She is very good at what she does, she doesn't rush it and most importantly, is very detailed when doing makeup. It is worth every penny. The makeup she uses is top notch and will last all day or all night.. trust me. I was very happy with the result and I know you will too :)

I highly recommend Veronica Guerrero. I have long thick hair and no one else can ever get the cut right.I love the blending of my cut layers. She has also dyed my hair and always looks natural. On special occasions I also have her do my makeup, she always knows how to create a different look. I am always satisfied. Her prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend her for any of your beauty needs.
