I took two one-on-one makeup classes with Mayra over the past few years and loved both. I enjoyed chatting with her and learning about her profession, and she was very skilled in makeup application and instruction for Asian complexions and Asian eyes. I am tan Chinese with asymmetrical eyelids (sounds weird, I know), so I wanted to learn makeup application and foundation matching. I'd always wanted her to do my hair and makeup, but had no occasion for it until my sister's wedding. I booked an appointment with her a few months in advance for the morning of the wedding. I explained that I had to drive out to the venue and when I had to leave her studio, so she knew when to schedule my appointment and have me ready and out the door. We started promptly and she had me ready to go at the time she promised. There was no hassle and everything went smoothly from start to finish. My hair and makeup turned out beautifully! I brought the bridesmaid dress I would be wearing for the ceremony and speeches as well as the dress I would change into for the reception, and Mayra made sure that the look would match both the sparkly sequined floor length dress and the more demure, dark blue lace overlay dress. She was able to work with my long, straight, flat hair and create volume and a stylish bun. The overall makeup application was relatively quick and I could tell Tiffany had an expert eye gained from years in the profession. She explained how the foundation would look over the course of photos, ceremony, and reception, how I would only have to powder once but everything else would not need to be touched up, and how the makeup look would coordinate with both dresses and look fabulous. She also explained what color lipstick to use if the lipstick she applied on me wore off over the evening. Throughout the almost hour and a half appointment, she was very patient, easy going, and pleasant to chat with, whether about weddings, makeup, or skincare. I had a very pleasant experience. Everything Mayra told me was spot on - I only had to powder once, my makeup did not smear in the heat and sweat (even though other bridesmaids' did), and the hair and makeup looked wonderful with both outfits. So far I have not seen the official wedding photos but all the photos taken of me on iPhones have looked so beautiful and flawless, yet I looked very much like me and not overdone. I got so many compliments over the day and evening, and she made me so beautiful for such a special event. I highly recommend taking her makeup classes and booking her for future appointments. She won't disappoint - she is very professional and has years of industry expertise to back up the price tag.

I had a contract for myself and 2 of my bridesmaids. It included Bride makeup & hair and for my 2 bridesmaids only make up with lashes. Months before the wedding I had sent out pictures of the make up and hair due we desired. The day before my wedding Cassandra texted me the pictures I had sent to her previously of our looks. She said make up artist Ayana would arrive at my hotel door at 5:30 am to set up and start my hair @ 6:00am, then bridesmaid #1 @ 7:00am for make up and 2nd bridesmaid at 8:00am for make up then to follow it would be myself @ 9:00am to do my makeup. I agreed and said it was great sent her my hotel room number. I was aiming to be done by 10 am. Her make up artist Ayana showed up 1 hour late. I had called Cassandras mobile number 2 times and left a voicemail, she then texted me back at 5:55am," Hi! I just called Ayana, she must be running late! So Sorry!.." and "Just spoke with her. She's driving from San Mateo and said she'll arrive by 6:30 or so, which is more than enough time for everyone! No worries!!!" She started to work on me at 7:00am. Ayana did half of my hair and while doing it she used our crulying iorns because she only brought one. I was completely fine with it. Ayana mentioned that Cassandra never told her to show up @5:30am that she took the job because it was a last minute thing and Cassandra had no one else to do the job. She then continued with my make up & it did not come out nearly what I had previously sent to them. I was still optimistic being that it was my wedding day and I wanted things to go smooth. She did not completely finish my work and started working on one of my bridesmaid at 9:50am. By this time we knew she would not be able to complete my 2nd bridesmaid make up, therefore my bridesmaid left to MAC to try and get her makeup done. Luckily they took her in. My bridesmaid that had her makeup started at 9:50 am was still not complete and it was already 11am. I was not able to take pictures with my bridesmaid due to timing. Every one was running late. Finally, the bridesmaid who left to MAC came back looking flawless and Ayana had ask to take a picture because she would let Cassandra know she did not have time so she had to go to MAC. My other bridesmaid make up was HORRIBLE and rushed!!! 11:15 am and still not complete. She was also unaware that we were all doing lashes because she said Cassandra did not inform her. This was a very disturbing experience and I am looking forward for a refund! No bride should ever go through anything this horrendous. Moral of the story, if you have a small bridal party do not book them because you will not be their priority!!! Cassandra and I had a few text the day of my wedding. Anaya had lied and sent her a picture of my bridesmaid with MAC makeup and tried getting credit for it. I instantly gave her a little background of what had happened and Cassandra said she was not late and that Anaya had more than enough time to finish all three of us. Such a bad experience. Looking forward to getting refunded. Bianca Acero

Olivia was amazing! She took the time to meet with my husband and I to go over exactly what we wanted for our make up (Yondu and Gamora) a week before Out party. She was very professional, listened carefully and had great ideas. I felt so comfortable with her and knew we had made the right decision in hiring her! The day of, she showed up on time and had all her make up and supplies ready to go. She was so much fun to talk to. The end result was amazing! Could not have asked for more. We got so many compliments from our friends. Thank you Olivia! We will definitely hire you again!!

As a former magazine beauty editor and now on-air beauty expert, I've worked with tons of makeup artists over the years. I met Liv when she did my makeup for my sister-in-law's Napa wedding, and since then, she's been one of my favorites. I loved how she made my skin look flawless and glowy without caking on the product. She chose beautiful neutral shadows that magically made my eyes appear bluer and bigger than ever. I highly recommend Liv. She'll make you look like the prettiest version of yourself.

    Kristine, of Makeup Mobile, is awesome to work with! She is an amazing makeup artists and knows how to enhance a person's natural beauty and make them look dramatic but not overdone. For those nights or days when you just need to look glam without the effort, call Makeup Mobile! She can even offer a personal class on how to do your makeup. I prefer her live training over trying to watch a very layer video that's hard to follow. Keep it simple - let her come to you.

    I was searching for a local makeup artist who uses natural beauty products, and could come to my home. Tessa fit the bill. She was both pleasant and professional. As a mature client, I was especially happy with her ability to make my under eye circles much less noticeable while not piling on a ton of makeup. I am learning how apply makeup, but think it it well worth the price to have an expert such as Tessa complete a look from time to time.

    Monica at I Do Hair Couture did two practice sessions with me to make sure that I found the style that worked the best, for what I was looking for. She did an amazing job and my hair was flawless, she made me look stunning. I received many compliments and still do when people see the photographs. I continue to see her every six weeks, she is a master at color and styling for my features.

    I am a local High School Senior photographer here in Raleigh, NC. Marissa has been one of my go-to make up artists for the past two years. She is phenomenal. My clients, being 18 years old and out of their element are usually very nervous for makeup styling and the photo shoot in general. Marissa does an excellent job easing their nerves and making them look stunning and confident for their portraits. She has great attention to detail and always gives the client the exact look that they were going for. From natural makeup for weddings or high school seniors to out of the box unique styling for photo shoots or runway, Marissa can do it all!

      Mishi did my makeup for my wedding. She was phenomenal! The look was exactly what I wanted. She even helped with a second look. She is friendly and professional. The makeup lasted throughout the evening. And looked great in photos. Mishi took the time to make sure the look was correct too. We had a consultation so there were no surprises. My make was beautiful and fresh. Go with Mishi! You will be happy you did! Thank you.
