Frances was AMAZING! She knew exactly what I wanted and she was very professional. This was my first time hiring a makeup artist and she made me feel very comfortable. I loved how she made my eyes and my facial features stand out. Everyone that saw me absolutely loved my makeup, I had people giving me compliments all night. I will definitely hire Frances again for my next event :)

Frances and Samantha did an amazing job! They saved me when the hair and makeup artist I originally hired backed out on me at the last minute. They were both very friendly and professional. They made me feel very calm and comfortable on my wedding day. They did exactly the hair and makeup style I wanted. I highly recommend them whether it be for a wedding or another big event.

Brigitte did a phenomenal job at doing my making for my wedding. She made sure she took her time to give me the results I wanted, which is why she did not over commit to do all of my bridesmaids. She wanted to ensure she had plenty of time for me. Brigitte made me look naturally flawless and not cakey, which was HUGE for me! The bridesmaids she did were also very pleased with their makeup. Another thing I noticed was that she is very clean with her products; she does not use old brushes for mascara or lipstick. Brigitte is also extremely gentle with your skin; she does not tug on it. Overall, I would highly recommend her for your next event!

Brigitte is a fabulous Esthetician and Makeup Artist. She has been waxing my eye brows for over a year, and I truly look forward to going to see her. She is very professional, and has a soft touch and a great eye. She has also done airbrush makeup for me, and I was blown away by how beautiful it looked and how long it lasted. Brigitte provides great service, and is a valuable investment! You are sure to feel as pretty as I always do when Brigitte is done with you!

She is a wonderful person the way she does makeup is amazing. The only thing I would say is maybe have her do foundation and then add the airbrush makeup I believe it would make a difference and give you that full coverage look. This feedback is based on my experience, thank you Bridgitte !!!!!

Allison and Becky were amazing! The work they did was beautiful for every single person we hired them for - 2 bridesmaids hair and makeup, 3 mother of the brides hair and makeup, and 1 boy makeup. Everything turned out beautiful. They communicated quickly and clearly about setup, fees, timing, and about styles and looks during application. It was great. I was very happy during my trial and my wedding. I'm looking forward to more pictures!

Allison and her team worked on the bridal party for my wedding. We had two trials to get the look exactly right for the wedding and she was friendly and punctual. My girls looked so beautiful and I loved my makeup. She helped make a truly special day great and I appreciate her services! The hair was also great and everyone still looked awesome at the end of the night. Thank you!

Chyanne did my makeup for my wedding in July. It was a hot day, but she was so professional and made sure that my makeup was perfect for the entire ceremony. I felt like Kate Middleton. She also did my Mom's makeup (pictured below) and my 3 bridesmaids. I recommend her to all of my friends and family for any event. 5 stars! ✨

I've been going to Circe for almost two years now . She is amazing , trusting a new hairstylist is hard these days at first I had my hesitations like any normal person but after the first color and haircut I was obsessed ! She was able to turn me from a brunette to a blonde without damaging me hair , she really knows how to envision the finish product . She's my hairgodess

I get my haircut here only because nobody else can seem to satisfy my hair needs. The hairstylist, Circe, is a perfectionist giving me amazing results every time. Great personality and great attitude. Highly recommended. 5 stars all day. This is the best place to go for men, women and even kids.

Patricia was my makeup artist for my wedding last September and did a phenomenal job making me look my absolute most beautiful. I could not have been happier with the results. I came to the trial with a lot of ideas, and she helped me figure out what would look best on me, for the look I was going for. Not only did she do an outstanding job, but is really easy-going yet professional, and a sweet person overall. I was totally stressed-out and she took special care to help me calm down, and shooed away people who were asking me all kinds of questions. In the end, my makeup held up and looked perfect until I took it off that night. I would highly recommend Patricia for all your makeup needs!

I simply cannot put into words how incredible the experience was I enjoyed with Patricia. I'm a drag queen and needed amazing makeup for an upcoming photo shoot. Today I went to Patricia's salon in Santa Barbara for a trial and she exceeded my expectations beyond my wildest dreams! She's an incredibly talented MUA, not to mention an amazingly nice, funny, understanding person.

Jasmine was my makeup artist for my graduation day. She was referred to me by my cousin because Jasmine had done her makeup for prom. I was impressed that she arrived ten minutes early to greet me. She gave me a consultation and explained the type of makeup that would work for my skin type. We also went over my color preference for cheeks, eyes, and lips. Also, she gave me recommendations for my skin color. My favorite part was when she showed me the trick to putting on eyelashes. I really appreciate that she was professional, kind, and on time. I would recommend for others to contact Jasmine for any event and occasion. She is truly experienced and well versed in makeup techniques! Thank you, Karyn Oswaldo

I was really impressed with her work and talent. She made me feel very comfortable and made sure I was happy with everything she was doing as she was doing it. What I liked the most was that she made it completely about what I wanted and focused on my happiness and comfort. She didn't try to sell anything or promote anything unless I asked for it. I have had my makeup done by plenty of other makeup artists and I've had both bad and good experiences but she was such a delight and she made my experience so much fun. She raised my confidence level and I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. Thank you Jasmine!

This review is way way way overdue.... Our wedding was last April! First off, so sorry it took this long to review such an exemplary professional. Off we go - I was a bit nervous, picking a hair/makeup professional I'd never been to before - because I was have a (more or less) destination wedding in Santa Ynez. I also couldn't get a trial done, due to distance... So obviously, I was a bit in the dark. Julie to the rescue! I found her on Thumbtack and inquired about a potential hairstyle/makeup look I was pondering for my wedding day. I should say, first off, I was originally planning on doing my own hair and makeup... but then after a few trial and error mishaps, I freaked out and needed to find someone fast. Julie put my mind at ease by declaring she would have no problem helping me accomplish the look I was going for and proceeded to direct me to her Instagram page, that of which illustrated examples of exactly what I wanted. Very last minute, my bridesmaids also enlisted her services, and she was extremely flexible in bringing in an assistant to help with all us girls. The day of, she took all my notes, noted my features, and found the perfect balance between what I was looking to accomplish and what would compliment me best. I'm so glad I ended up finding Julie for my special day, proof is in the pictures girl! Wish I had you around every day!

My service stands out since I have been doing makeup since I was very young, and over the years I have picked up many new tips and tricks that I like to share with the client as I do their makeup. Not only do they get their makeup done but they learn something to take home too.

About

Every successful company has their story and here is ours. In the late 1990s, we began as an agency for makeup artists who would freelance for major cosmetic companies as national and regional makeup artists. One of our artists was the national makeup artist for Christian Dior, another for Chanel and others for companies such as Smashbox, Stila, Nars and Trish McEvoy. Shortly thereafter, we merged into doing production work for nationally broadcasted commercials, independent films, fashion photo shoots while working with a legendary celebrity clientele. In 1999, a major turning point occurred when we were asked to do makeup for several Oscar nominees at the Academy Awards. The word spread like wildfire, as these high-profile celebrities recommended our company to their friends and relatives for special events and weddings. Our work began to focus more towards the wedding industry and involved fashion shoots for bridal boutiques and weddings. To be chosen to do someone's wedding is a compliment. To be asked to be a part of such an important day of someone's life is truly an honor, and we take it to heart. Our philosophy is that any bride could change into a couture gown from her wedding dress and look like she's about to walk the red carpet. Your wedding style should reflect your inner beauty and personal style. We are here to make you look your personal best. After ten years in the business, we continue to grow and expand. After 2500 brides and years in the bridal industry, we are able to travel anywhere in the country to make your wedding dreams become reality.
