I got in contact with Annaliza through Thumbtack as I was travelling to LA from the UK for the 2015 Oscars. Thumbtack's a great way of finding professionals when you are not from the area. Annaliza kept in good contact with me on the build up to the event and promptly arrived at my hotel room on the day. She came well prepared with plenty of supplies, and a clear idea of how to achieve the look I wanted. When I changed my mind regarding the make up, Annaliza was able to adapt and achieved a look that I was very happy with. The end result was fabulous, the application light, and I didn't have to keep checking my make up through the night. All together a very stress free result, which lasted throughout the night.

I have hired Sabrina on numerous occasions to do my makeup for the Oscars, the Grammy's and many other events over the last few years. I can always count on Sabrina to make me look and feel fantastic. I have recommended her to friends and clients of mine and have heard nothing but wonderful feedback about her work and her charming personality. Sabrina is a pleasure to work with on all accounts and is very reasonable with her rates. She is always my number one go-to makeup artist.

Rebecca help me with my 40th wedding anniversary make-up.I told Rebecca that I was not a make-up person very little daily or not at all therefore I did would to look over made up or not look like myself. (if you know what I mean). I must say Rebecca is a real professional make-up artists I got more compliment from people who know I don't wear a lot of make-up even my Husband Love the Glamorous Glitzy Look that wasn"t over done just enough.and still look like myself with Glam. I'm a women of color I was very skeptical going on the web looking for someone to do my make-up for my big night I'm really glad I did and run into Rebecca. she also did my daughter make-up. we were both very impressed with her professionalism she is the real deal we love her if you are looking for a reliable person that knows her trade she is the one would hire her again in a heart beat & will.

Shab was wonderful!! I initially hired her to make up my 15-year-old daughter and 5 friends for a special event. She was very sensitive to not overdoing young girls and they all looked special and darling. I was so impressed I hired her to come back twice more and teach my 19th-year-old daughter and myself (50yrs old) some techniques. She was great at teaching techniques for each of us that were age appropriate and really listened to what we wanted as opposed to just doing the same face for everyone. Thank you, Shab!!!!

She is consistent and not pushy! She knows what kind of products that I am interested in. She is flexible patient and doesn't try to push product down my throat. I love the motives make up. Because one it compliments my skin and it also is hypoallergenic which I need for my skin.

Rodolfo came to my hotel to apply make-up. He was punctual and very friendly. He was also knowledgeable on all the products and explained everything he was doing and why. I wanted the "dramatic " look for an evening wedding and he nailed it!! If I am in the area again I would definitely call in him.

It was such a great experience she made me feel comfortable to get ny make up done by a professional. And when she was done i wasnt scared to look in the mirror, i have been to those store that offer free make up when you buy their products and i end up leaving wanting to wash my face . On the contrary i didnt want t wash Miss Olivares make up off, i couldnt stop taking selfies of it .

I have relied on Lesley's expertise for multiple occasions when preparing for a wedding, baptism, and birthday parties. Each and every time Lesley has surpassed my expectations. My skin is sensitive and has a tendency to get oily after a few hours so Lesley worked with my skin type and had me looking flawless all night long. She has a great selection of products that work with all skin types and individuales each session around your needs and wants. Lesley is also an amazing hairdresser and what's best than getting the full package in one session. I highly recommend and have found my make up artist for all occasions

I usually dont write reviews but Veronica literally saved my hair! about two years ago I asked my hairstylist (i wont put his name on blast) to lighten my hair. All i wanted was choolate brown ( i was a dark brown already). He said he had to beach it and then dye it...i was ok with it...he ended up burning my head! I got blisters all over ( i still have neck scars from the blisters, they're sooooo ugly). It was like movie....when he washed my hair (after i was almost crying because of the burning) my haor started to fall out!!!!! I was left with verrrry thin,brittle, and crisppy hair. I was so embarssed. I was left with no choice but to find aaother hair stylist. I was referred to Veronica by a friend. As you can imagine i was skeptical and hesitant about letting someone touch my hair. But i reached out to her anyway and im glad i did. She condotioned my hair and nursed it back to health and didnt charge me an arm and a leg to do it! She got the ugly color out of it and taught me how to style it without having to use any straightners or curling irons. My hair is thick and healthy now. She is really sweet, patient, and afforable (and she even makes house visits 🙌). Now i use her for everything! Her and her team are doing the hair and make up (i love he way she does my makeup... she makes me look like a persian goddess and im mexican lol) my wedding and i couldnt be happier! I hate to share her (my secret beauty weapon) with everyone. But i know how terrible it feels not to feel like yourself because someone burnt your hair, cut too much, or charged too much. If your looking for a miracle at a descent price, call her! Thank you for all you've done for my haor Veronica. I hope this review was helpful guys.

Ladie is an amazing makeup artist! She did my makeup and hair for a wedding and I absolutely loved it. She was very friendly and professional. She always asked me beforehand if I was okay with certain preferences (ie. "lashes", "natural/ glam", bold lip/natural lip".) I loved how she knew right away what to do and she took her time to make sure that I look flawless. Her makeup stayed on ALL night! I have no complaints, She's simply amazing in her profession!

Hands down the best hairstylist and make-up artist I have ever hired! She helped me get ready for my graduation from Cal Poly Pomona. I heard she has a way for doing Hollywood Waves hairstyle and she nailed it!! It came out looking flawless! Along with my makeup that I went more for a natural look she hit it on the dot. The make-up was so light weight and it didn't feel like it was caked on at all. She is very good at managing her time and was able to do both my makeup and hair in less than 2 hours (which by my standards is pretty fast!). Very professional and very entertaining. Doesn't make you feel uncomfortable in any way. I would definitely hire her for any occasion or if I just want to get pampered for a day!

I really liked Anna's make up job. I booked her for my birthday party and I looked very beautiful! She's located in Hollywood which made easier. The only tip I would give to her is to try to have Vegan Make up. I know is more expensive but would definitely make a difference.

What I really enjoyed was chatting with him as he did my make-up. He explained the process as he went along and I learned a lot about make-up. He made me laugh and he calmed my nerves. My make-up looked very elegant.
