Normally, I like to do my own makeup. I know which way to do it after years of experimenting on my face to know what makes me looks the best. There was an event in which I had no time to do my own makeup, but a makeup artist would be appointed to me. This was Mayra. I sat down, without hesitation, she matched my skin tone, defined and made my eyes looking gorgeous. Highlighted and contoured my face in a natural glamorous way. She's so sweet and nice as we had out conversations throughout the makeup. My skin looked glowing, everything was just wow. After all was done, I wanted a simple hair. I don't have much hair. She curled my hair and gave it volume. This usually takes me about 30 minutes to just make my hair look fuller. She made my hair a Hollywood look within minutes. Wedding day, photoshoot, events, .. You need to contact Mayra. It is really worth it. She is really experienced and she will never take your comments as judging her work. I'm definitely getting her to do my makeup on my wedding day.

I absolutely couldn't have been happier working with Susan and the Jireh Artistry team. I felt like I was a little late to booking my hair and makeup team, one of the last vendors I secured for the my May 2017 wedding. This was the first time I used Thumbtack and to be honest was a little nervous, because I was worried that the net they casted to reach various vendors was very wide. Susan responded to my inquiry quickly and our back and forth was very professional and easy. She was very accommodating for the trial and I was so happy with how she worked my hairdo. I provided a couple of pictures and she put her own twist on it. Fast forward a few months to wedding day. The team was there on time and setup quickly to stay on schedule, actually ahead of it. There were a total of 15 services (hair and makeup) and we were timed perfectly. Everyone from my bridesmaid to my mom to myself were so happy with the work. The team was warm and easy to talk with. It is such a long chunk of time to be with people on such an important day and no one felt like strangers. Seriously so warm and fun. I consider this such a thumbtack success story. I would recommend Jireh Artistry to anyone who needs hair and makeup services. I honestly felt so confident all day. I normally never wear my hair up and usually am so self conscious when I do, but never second guessed my decision all day and felt like I only needed to apply lipstick, really no touchups. Thanks again for being a part of the most memorable day.

Jasmene did my makeup for my wedding as well as my wedding parties. She also did my makeup for my maternity photos and made me feel my best when I wasn’t exactly feeling my best. I’ve received tons of compliments on my makeup and photos thanks to Jasmene’s listening ear to hear what her customer wants and be able to actually execute the look. Thank you!

Kayla was very professional and humble, down to earth. She listened well to what I wanted and was open minded and willing to change anything I wanted. Even through got it down pretty much first shot. All in all I would call kayla again for my wedding and recommend to anyone who needs a great service and makeup done.

She was right on with what I was looking for. I went to Marlise for Full Glam Makeup. I don't usually wear much makeup & was very pleased with her color choices. She totally got me. I loved her contouring. I will be seeing her soon for my hair!

This is almost a year late but Marissa did the makeup for my wedding in September 2013. She did the makeup for my two teenage daughters and myself. We were absolutely beautiful and stunning! I hope she has photos. She is great to work with and very professional. She does great work with ethnic faces! Hire her!

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.
