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
Thank you for making my daughter birthday a special time and memories you were fantastic whit the kids and also adult every one was very happy and they love all the face painting design I will definitely hired you again for future events than you for made my daughters birthday very special
She did my make up for my 21st birthday. She is very talented. She takes her time and makes sure it's exactly what you wanted before you leave. Always smiles and makes you feel and look beautiful.
Emi is the best! She has such a great demeanor with clients. I'm always nervous about having other people do my make-up (I try to avoid that clown caked-on look that so often happens at makeup counters) but Emi eased my concerns and listened to what I wanted. My make-up looked amazing and I got tons of compliments! Definitely will use her again and referred all my friends to her! - Lauren
Monica was incredible! This was my first experience getting my make up done and I loved Monica's work. She was so relaxing, accommodating, and freaking talented that it's insane! I had to crazy rush fly in from SFO, book it to get my make up done, then book it to a wedding and Monica was very kind with dealing with my flight delay and working magic in the adjusted time line. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to just relax and enjoy the make up experience! I will 100% use Monica again for when I'm back in the Bay for special occasions/just treating myself. I have fair skin with some rosacea on my nose and cheeks, so marks after acne or redness are things I'm self-conscious about. Monica made them disappear! She also knew what to recommend to flatter me, better than my Pinterest inspiration choices, and she was so right. Even after the wedding my coverage was flawless. Ladies, Monica will make you look like an Instagram star for the day, just sit back and let her!
I got my make up done for prom , I loved the way my makeup came out . Angelique is very detailed and takes her time to make sure your very satisfied with her work . Can't wait for another event , she'll be the one I'll call for makeup!
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 loved my make up and would recommend Jelise. I had make up done for a photo shoot, but would come back to Jelise for special occasion work too. She really knew how to blend everything to look more natural. Great work!
Tess is a goddess of nurturing and feminity. I got to her a mess and she made me feel gorgeous and took good care of me. She did a romantic natural makeup look and kept my free spirit personality in my updo. I felt soft and feminine and glowing. She's the best!
Ashlee was awesome! Personable, on time, and my make up was fabulous! I would recommend her and use her again when I'm in The Bay Area.
Amazing personality. Knows her brushes and make up. Great at fixes blemishes on face and all around d wonderful and talented artist. Such creativity. Love getting my make up done by her. Would recommend her to friends, events and more.
She is amazing! Love her work. She listens to how I like my make up and does exactly what I want. Her blending skills are on point and no one can ever do my winged eye liner like she does.
Janes talent and professional attitude speaks for itself! She is such a joy and makes you feel so beautiful. She has a hip and trendy vibe with the utmost class. Jane has done my make up for girls night out, singing performances, weddings and countless events. Her services are the icing on any night out for me. She makes it beyond easy; she can most times come to you. She totally fun and affordable! I refer to all my friends and family! Jane Is my go to make up guru and she should be yours too!
I had a wonderful experience with Arden. She came over to give me a make up tutorial using my own products so I know how to apply the best make up based on what I already have. She's a great listener, very attentive to my preferences. She's a beauty expert, I would recommend her with the highest regard.
I had accompanied my girlfriend to an appointment she had with Cella. My friend was getting her makeup done for an event she was attending with her boyfriend. I could not believe the amazing work Cella did. I have had many make ups myself and never looked as great as my friend did. Cella's talent is unbelievable. She clearly has an attention to detail that I like. My friend looked incredible and I can't wait to book my own appointment with Cella. She is my new go to for all my events.
Mitasha is one of the best makeup artists ive worked with! Easy to talk to and connect with, shes just a great person overall. She has an excellent hand and eye to make any look suit me and she does take suggestions if I want my look to be a bit different than what shes doing. After getting my makeup done by many other MUAs, the quality of work, products, and results by Mitasha is by far the best.
I can’t say enough about Jason! He showed up early. He had given a great consultation so I knew exactly what to expect the day of. He listened to my wants and hopes ... and fully delivered. I felt like such a princess on my wedding day without that “cakey fake” look. Thank you making My day so special!
I have gotten my makeup done by different people before, but I have to say Hazel has been the best! I requested a natural glam look and she achieved it just perfect! Plus her energy and conversations make time fly. I’ve recommended her to a few friends and they have all been pleased:)
Love Mackenzie, she did my Bachelorette party ( wedding make up trial) and wedding day make up. She understood my vague vision of what wanted and executed it very well. She made suggestions when I didn't have an exact plan. Highly recommended and will definitely be using her for future events.
