Very profesional and punctual. I was weary of having them come in the clown costume at first but I'm glad they convinced me otherwise. The performer was super sweet and patient with our mostly under 2 year old chidren.

What an amazing makeup artist! I have gotten my makeup done by many makeup artist and none of them have done a job like Leticia. She takes her time doing your makeup and perfects it to your liking.

Annaliza is amazing. She did my makeup for a wedding I was attending. She was on time, very professional and friendly. I don't usually trust my face to someone else (since I pretty much know how to do my own makeup). Also, I had never had my makeup done by Annaliza so I basically just took a risk and hoped she would make me look lovely. Also, I'm black and I was concerned that she may not have experience with black skin and that the foundation she would use would be the wrong shade (I've had tons of makeup artists who are basically clueless about makeup on women of color). Needless to say I had no reason to be concerned. I wanted a glam but natural look and she delivered. She made me look flawless, took into consideration the dress I was wearing and even suggested another shade of lipstick she thought would look better with the dress (I originally wanted red). Boy, was she right. The color she chose was perfect ans I never would have picked it for myself. She went the extra mile to leave me a sample so I could touch up my lipstick throughout the day. The interesting thing is that I never had to do that or touch up any of my makeup over a 12 hour period. I not only looked glam but also natural and that's not easy to pull off. Also, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed that I actually fell asleep when she was doing my makeup. Finally, I never write reviews, but Annaliza surpassed my expectations so I decided to write one. Annaliza is plain simple, just fabulous. Next time I want my makeup done for an event I'm definitely calling her.

Sabrina was awesome! This was my first time working with her and through thumbtack. A little nervous (since I wasn't sure if I could really rely on the site and wasn't sure about hiring a complete stranger.) Sabrina came though. She was on time and very professional. I had a wedding to attend today, and needed to look good. Prior to the event, I had numerous conversations with her via phone, texting, and email about the hair style and makeup look I wanted. She was very easy to talk to, and very comfortable to work with. When I posted a question to her, she usually got back to me with in a couple of minutes. If not, she got back to me within a hour or two for sure (this was important to me because I needed to know if she was reliable. And she was). I am Asian. I know how hard it is to find an makeup artist really know how to do makeup right on Asians (another important point to me was to find someone that knows how to do makeup on an Asian lady). Sabrina was both for me. With Sabrina, I am totally happy with the way my hair and makeup came out today. I highly recommend her. I would certainly work with her again if I need my hair and makeup done in the future.

I am so happy to have found Julie as my makeup artist. If there was one thing I was really stressed about for my wedding it was the makeup. I wanted to look like me and not a cakey overdone mess. I was so worried about it that I made up my mind, after already acquiring quotes which included Julie, that I would do my own makeup even though I knew that would stress me out even more. But my bridesmaids still wanted there makeup done so I went on the hunt again and luckily Julie was still available. I set up a consultation with Julie and told her the change of plans that it would be for my bridesmaids only and after seeing her work on my sister who very rarely wears makeup I was so impressed and excited that I changed my mind once again. I absolutely loved loved loved my makeup I was so happy to look like myself but just a little more glam haha. I felt comfortable and confident. She was so sweet and flexible especially at the end when we had to add more girls and some wanted specifics. Her and her assistant were so great and I would definitely definitely recommend and book Julie again. :)

Alyssa was wonderful. She was punctual, she knew what she was doing and she did a great job. I was worried that my hair style wouldn't stay since I don't have a lot of hair. She worked miracles and was able to get waves in my hair that looked great all through the evening event(she did my hair at 1:30) and into the following day. Her makeup was perfect! This was a bollywood party so we were wearing very blingy clothes. She was able to do the makeup without it looking like it was TOO much, and at the same time it was not too light. She did a little bit of a dramatic touch, but it was subtle. The makeup stayed late into the evening as well. She was punctual and gave really good value for the price. I hope to have Alyssa do our makeup again for our next event.

Samantha is an exceptional makeup artist who I've hired several times and will do so again in the future. I am a commercial producer and I've hired Samantha for shoots for eBay, Levis and others. Her work is top notch. She is always on time, hard working and delivers the look we are going for. She is a genuine and warm person who loves what she does and gets along with everyone. She has a great knack for connecting with her subjects on a personal level and if you've worked with her once, you'll want to do so again.

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.

After the makeup artist I initially booked cancelled on me last minute, I was forced to turn to Thumbtack as I scrambled to find a last minute replacement. Luckily, Amanda answered my call. And since she was the first one to answer me, I rewarded her for it by booking her for the gig. The only hitch with Amanda was finding a place to do my makeup, as I wasn't going to be renting a hotel room due to only being in town for one day (not to mention I live within driving distance of San Francisco, so renting a hotel room for one day wouldn't have made any logistical sense). Luckily for us though, her friend allowed us to do my makeup at her studio. I even got to attend a party and drink an Orangina and get some snacks beforehand. This aside, the process went smoothly, and I was pleased with the end result. I even enjoyed the small talk Amanda and I made during the session. I was happy with the job she did, and I attended the charitable event I wanted the makeup done for with a pep in my step, blessed by the fact that I was made to look beautiful by Amanda Mutchie. I'd highly recommend booking her, and I might do so again in the future, provided I have the money and the time. Thanks again, Amanda.

I needed a last minute hair and makeup artist for our company event and I was so happy I found Lesley! Not knowing exactly how I wanted to look, she took the lead and created her work of art. She did an absolutely flawless job! She worked with my skin type, and easily blended the perfect color of foundation for my skin tone. She's super cool with a calming presence. I've received a lot of compliments about my look the entire night. I'd definitely recommend her!
