I loved my makeup and felt confident and beautiful at a special event. Josiah took the time to understand the look and style I was trying to achieve. He nailed it! He also brings his own make up chair and amazing lighting. I’ll be using him for everything special event in Denver! - Highly recommended!

When the makeup artist that my daughter had scheduled had an emergency, Josiah stepped in and we could not have been more pleased. Where to begin? His kind demeanor and attention to our requests as if he’d always known us made for the most comfortable and fun pre wedding event! I was so happy to look like my best self with a touch of fancy. My daughter who loves experimenting with makeup knew just the look she was after and Josiah executed exactly what she wanted for her special day. He’s unassuming yet confident and let’s his client be the star. I’d give him ten stars if I could!

My wife and I both had our wedding day makeup done a by Josiah, and I literally cannot sing his praises enough. Not only was he super kind and great at listening to what we wanted, but his work was IMPECCABLE. My makeup was the only thing I was nervous about on my big day, but he seriously could not have made it more perfect. Plus it lasted all day and night. I would go back to him a million times if I could!
