Lety was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is the definition of makeup "ARTIST", as she transformed my look and made me feel beautiful on my wedding day! Lety is flexible, punctual and friendly, all of my girlfriends/bridesmaids enjoyed her presence and quality of the work done. I would definitely hire Lety again is a heartbeat for any other special ocassions!

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 is the sweetest most talented makeup artist I've encountered in a very long time. She has definitely "created" a huge fan! My publicity shoot was awesome thanks to her professional passion.

Julie did an AMAZING job on my wedding day makeup. She arrived early to set up, finished on time, and my makeup lasted so well throughout the day! I would definitely recommend her to anybody looking for a makeup artist. She is affordable and provides quality services. Not to mention the amazing touch-up kit that was included with the fee! It included some powder, an application sponge, some lipstick, and an applicator! 10/10 stars for Julie!!

I don't know much about makeup and always struggle with what foundation works best with my skin. Vanessa knew what colors to apply and the right amount of foundation. She's brilliant at knowing the right shades for skin tone. I should have gone to her years ago. Her recommendation really made a difference in my daily life and confidence. In the past I've always been frustrated with makeup artists who didn't listen to me. Vanessa takes her time with you there's no rush which is a breathe of fresh air. She's so kind and listens.

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.

Paru is a fantastic makeup artist! She traveled all the way to my apartment to get me ready for a photo shoot , and it could not have turned out better. She knew exactly how to pick colors that complimented my cool undertones, and she's an expert at giving you a clean and natural finish that plays up your best features and that will give your photos a timeless look (which is perfect for those of us who don't like the heavily contoured, Instagram/Kylie Jenner-inspired look that many other makeup artists do). Paru's rates are very reasonable, especially considering how she travels TO YOU! She uses high-quality makeup brands like Anastasia, and she cleans all her tools after every single customer (a BIG plus for a germaphobe like me lol). I was very pleased with how my makeup turned out. I would totally use Paru again and would recommend her to anyone.

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!

I hired Esperanza to do my makeup a couple of times for special events, and I love her work so much since she is a makeup artist at heart and not just in beauty makeup but also face painting and more that I hired her to do face painting for my grandkids birthday parties and would recommend her.
