My friend was having Mayra do her makeup for a business video, and I tagged along, and got my makeup done too (since it was my birthday). What a treat! Mayra made me look great--like myself but way better. She was (as others have said) super relaxed and personable. But she's also incredibly knowledgeable about makeup--about which products are best for your skin, about how to make you look like you're glowing from within (isn't that what we all want) and how to use makeup for different purposes (stage, film, a social event, business). Too many makeup artists are one trick ponies, who only do the kind of makeup they themselves wear--not Mayra. She really listens to her clients and helps them achieve their goals. From now on I plan to book Mayra for all of my speaking events and social events. I'm hoping she will still have time for me, since she's so in demand!

Jen wore a beautiful fairy costume and reached the party location on time. The kids loved the ballon twist and the magic show. She was also very accommodating as we wanted to do cake cutting between her performance. Overall she lit up the party for the kids. The magic show could've been louder but it was just sufficient for the kids gathered around so no worries.

Rose was fantastic. She did Halloween disco diva makeup for four of us before a costume party.....makeup was over-the-top awesome (just what we wanted). Rose was really fun and personable and (bonus) she drew on her "prior life" experience as a disco instructor to give four costumed couples and our horrified/amused children a lesson in the Hustle before departing. I'll hire her again in a heartbeat. So fun.

Chantelle was the makeup artist for my wedding November 22, 2015. She was prompt, professional, warm, and most of all - made me look better than I ever have before. Her techniques are unbelievable! From contouring, to the individual lashes, my wedding day makeup looked AMAZING! Somehow she made me look like myself, but more glamorous. I would highly recommend her for special occasions, or for any time you want your makeup professionally done by a consummate professional.

Ash did an incredible job with face makeup for a recent masquerade event I was singing at. Being that it's difficult to sing with a mask on, I asked the lovely creatirix to paint my face in the style of an elegant black mask. She went above and beyond my expectations! The beautiful work of art she created was complemented and photographed all night long. Not only is Ash an incredible artist, she is also kind and friendly and very professional.

Jennifer did an amazing job. She arrived on time, set up quickly, and cleaned up. She has an amazing way with kids. She did crowd control by numbering their hands so that they weren't fighting. For those who just couldn't decide she helped them by asking questions or modifying a look for them. My daughter who was the birthday girl wanted to look like Rey from Star Wars so Jennifer basically did her "makeup" and added some fun jewels and crowd on her forehead. My daughter was thrilled. I would highly recommend her. She is amazing.

Vinnia was fantastic!!! I couldn't have been happier with my wedding hair and makeup. All of my communication with Vinnia was done through email since I live out of the country. She was amazing at suggesting ideas for my hair and makeup. She was always very prompt with replying to my emails. I wasn't sure what to do with my hair since I was growing it out and I had only had my makeup professionally done once before. I showed Vinnia a picture of how I wanted my hair and she styled it turned out even better than I imagined. I had so many compliments on it! My makeup was beautiful too. Vinnia kept checking to make sure that I was happy and anything I wanted changed wasn't a problem at all. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their hair and makeup done too. Vinnia and her assistant arrived on time and had all of us done within the time frame she provided. There was no rushing around, it was very relaxed and pampering. My makeup and hair lasted all night long! I highly recommend Vinnia as a professional, experienced, and high quality makeup artist and hair stylist.

Liv came to my rescue when I found out my makeup artist/hair doesn’t do my engagement trial during weekend. Not only she was available but she gave me such a great affordable price for trial and wedding. She also gave us discount for eye lashes! I knew she didn’t have to do that. She always responsive when I have questions. She listens to my ideas/wants. She doesn’t pressure me with anything. She has a fun personable personality which is easy to talk to and get along with. I definitely will recommend her to people and will hire for future special occasions.

All Star Showgrams was amazing to work with! They were quick, very professional, and made the process of booking very easy. We were SO THRILLED when Batman (Tom) came to our twins' superhero birthday party. Not only was he not scary in his Batman costume for an audience that ranged from infant to 9 yr old, but he was super friendly and entertaining. His costume, attitude, voice were all on point and I'd highly recommend him and this company to any family that needs a character...especially Tom for Batman. He entertained a rowdy group of 14 kids (mainly preschool age) for over 2 hours!!! Money well spent!!!

Amy is absolutely incredible!! Not only is her work amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable and really cares about her clients. She is very flexible and easy to work with. Living in Denver, I only had a short amount of time that I would be in California for the wedding, and she worked with my schedule to make sure I got a trial before the day of my wedding. On the day of the wedding, she was on time and she made sure she had plenty of time to get everyone's makeup done so we were ready on time! On top of that, she was very reasonably priced and worked within my budget. She also found me a hair stylist that fit in my budget as well! All of my bridesmaids, my mom, and myself loved our makeup and it lasted all night. Her makeup is beautiful and I got so many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend hiring Amy as she is definitely one of the best makeup artists I have ever hired!

I hired Cynthia to do hair and makeup for my wedding party (bridesmaids and flower girls) last Sept. 16th 2017. Cynthia is an excellent makeup artist. She was on time, stuck to her schedule and did wonderful job with my girls. Me (bride) and my girls and the flower girls are absolutely look stunning when she finishes up the makeup and hair. I never been so beautiful before until the day of my wedding, she definitely transformed my beauty into the highest level! I received a lot of compliments during and after my wedding. I personally recommend her to do your makeup and hair, she has a lot of experience and she knows what to do even if we didn't had to do a trial, I can tell based on what she did to me and my girls. Thank you Cynthia for making me look like cinderella on my wedding day!

The only problem you have when Audra does your makeup is you never want to wash your face again!!!! She is beyond a pleasure to work with. Very kind and professional but she also was very educational and didn't mind answering all my questions about products and how to's. And her kit is immaculate!!!!!! In a perfect world Audra would be the only person that ever did my makeup! She is by far the best makeup artist I have ever worked with!!!

Botox? Who needs it when you have a Makeup Artist like Kala. I've used her services for 2 photo shoots now and love the results. She also makes the experience fun-filled, what a joy to work with her.

Mari was absolutely amazing. She did makeup and hair for myself and all of my bridesmaids and my mom about a month ago for my wedding. She was punctual, thoughtful about the time, did incredible work, and was super fun! Everyone looked absolutely stunning. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends and family for other events.

I came to thumbtack looking for a great makeup artist to do my makeup for a holiday party I was attending. Amanda reached out to me here on thumbtack with a quote. After looking at her photos and seeing how responsive she was, I decided to go with her as my makeup artist. He communication style is very clear with no hidden costs; she is upfront with pricing and is very competitive for the quality she offers. She arrived at my house at the appointed time and set up all of her equipment. We talked a bit futher about the style/look I was going for and then got started! She was wonderful to talk to and made the process easy and very comfortable. The look came out beautifully, bold/smoky eyes with a subtle cheek and lip. Applying smoky eyes or any eye makeup to asian monolids can be challenging, but Amanda had no problems and made me look glamorous. I highly recommend her if you are looking for quality of work, responsiveness and an all round wonderful person to do your makeup. Next time I need my makeup done, I know exactly who to reach out to.
