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 cannot recommend Julie enough! She did my makeup for my wedding and she was such a delight to work with. I'm always nervous about others doing my make up because usually the artist does my makeup too dark and makes me look scary. I told Julie about my worries early, during my trial, she was really patient in making sure that everything she did was exactly what I wanted. I can't thank her enough for that. She was super easy to work with, super responsive, and ALWAYS on top of it. Given that I'm super Type-A personality and very diligent in making sure I get everything done at a certain time, it was super helpful that she was the same way as well. During my actual wedding day, she made sure that I was comfortable, really flexible in making last minute changes, and super helpful to my family if they needed something. She went above and beyond in her services and I was so thankful that I found her. Really, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed during my wedding day that it really just carried on throughout the night. I couldn't be more happy with my services and if I ever need a makeup artist to work with, I'll definitely use Julie again.

I could have not asked for a better hair and makeup artist! My makeup and hair was absolutely flawless thanks to Sarah! She did exactly what I was looking for when other artists could not. I recommend doing the trial so you can play with what you are looking for on your big day. The whole team arrived on time to my hotel room and were ready before any of my bridesmaids, mothers, flower girls, and myself were ready. They were organized and made our experience incredible. I was so happy with my hair and makeup and it lasted the whole day. Everything was perfect thanks to Sarah and her team!

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.

Cynthia made me look like a queen on my wedding day. Everyone kept asking me " who did your makeup?" I would tell them a professional makeup artist. Everyone commented on how well I looked with makeup. I would hire her again in an instant. She is good to work with, friendly, outstanding , easy going. Punctual and very professional.

Alyssa was highly responsive from beginning to end, and remained a constant professional when we needed her to be flexible (as often is the case with unexpected changes at the last minute with weddings). She came prepared and was friendly throughout. She did absolutely great job with my hair and makeup. My only reservation was she was booked for other engagements and could not be flexible by staying later and that cut into the time it took to do the makeup for my mom. Instead of doing my moms hair I wished that time was spent dedicated on doing her makeup only. In my initial request, Alyssa was booked for makeup only for my mom so when she asked if my mom wanted hair too, we assumed she had time to do both the makeup and hair, and we did not think twice when Alyssa started with my mom’s hair first. My moms makeup was really the priority as I had requested. Alyssa did provide a $15 discount for the “light makeup” and I appreciate she did that. If given an opportunity to work with Alyssa again, I would book her again in a heart beat however my recommendation would be she clearly communicate given time restrictions on a day like; by asking if my mom wanted her hair done also lead us to believe she had enough time to do both. I would have preferred she concentrated on the makeup only as we had discussed prior.
