I hired Kasia off of Thumbtack to makeup design a shoot in Northampton, MA for a web series based out of Los Angeles, and I can say with absolute confidence that the quality of her work rivals that of industry professionals working on network television. We required Kasia to create two different special effect looks for very swollen and irritated eyes. Kasia exceeded our expectations. Not only was the look incredibly authentic and horrifying (as we had intended!) she created it on a relatively low budget with a very short window of time to execute the look. She was patient, proficient and a joy to work with on a very fast-paced set over the course of an incredibly long day. On top of that, she did simple, clean and beautiful base makeup for all other actors on set. I would hire her again in an instant!

Steph was amazing to work with! I hired her to do my wedding makeup after we did two trials- one of which she didn't charge me for because I ended up really not liking the airbrush so she invited me to come back and try traditional makeup. She was casual and inviting and made sure everything was perfect. I loved her kindness and would highly recommend her. My husband loved the makeup on our wedding day and even said that the makeup artist had done a beautiful job. I loved it all too and got so many helpful tips from Steph as well. Definitely recommend!

Stacie did an AMAZING job. I had 3 terrible makeup trials before going to her. The makeup looked beautiful and she did it exactly how I wanted. I'm so happy I found her bc now I don't have to worry about anything for the wedding. 4th times the charm! :)

Face Kapow did the face painting for my nonprofit event, and she helped make the event a huge success! All of the kids and the adults loved her beautiful design. She is a great artist, and she is very professional. I will definitely work with Face Kapow again.

Dianna always puts the time and effort into making sure her clients look perfect. She never rushes and always ensures you are happy as she goes through her steps- even if you're in a time crunch! From teaching me how to do "stage makeup," to creating a shopping list of makeup and products for me/my coloring/ my skin type, I feel like Dianna cares about me as a person as opposed to me as a "job." I would not have had a successful year as Miss Connecticut without her, and her consistent friendship proves to me that she loves what she does and she believes in relationship building. Though I have learned her tips and tricks through multiple lessons, I still get excited at the opportunity for her to "beautify" me... because no matter how much I practice my hand is never as good as hers. Thank you so much Dianna, can't wait to book you in the future!

Jes did an AMAZING job for my best friends wedding. The bride and bridesmaids hair & makeup was flawless. Styles us ladies could only dream of having. My hair felt like a piece of art and it held tight through the entire day, dancing and all. On top of that, Jes was present during the entire ceremony for touch ups, making everyone feel beautiful at all times. She is truly talented and I would recommend her in heartbeat.

I called on Iris pretty late at night and she responded quickly to my surprise. Her makeup skills and recommendations are on point. I thought I wanted a certain style of eye makeup, but because my eyes are pretty small, she recommended something I've never thought of before and BOY was she right. I looked AMAZING!!! All my life I've been doing my makeup all wrong for my type of facial features and Iris showed me how to enhance what I do have. Iris is a great makeup artist and a great teacher as well. She going to be the makeup artist I call on and recommend in the future. P.s. I'm transgender and still sometimes get nervous in situations like this because I don't know how people will react to me. Iris was very kind and treated me like a life long friend. I never once felt awkward at all. You can tell she has a lot of experience doing makeup for all types of people. Highly recommended !!

I have used Amani a few times to do my makeup (for parties and special occasions) I always feel flawless and fierce when she is done!! I will be using her for my baby shower this weekend and I am 100% confident in her work. I am African American with medium dark skin and she is able to match me perfectly every time and not have me looking like a clown!!

Beth was amazing to work with. All my makeup for my wedding attendants and mother looked fantastic. She's a miracle worker. I ended up crying during my ceremony and didn't need to fix my makeup at all afterwards. She was extremely prompt, attentive, friendly and personable. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a makeup artist for their special occasion.

Audra did my wedding makeup, and I truly have never looked more beautiful (before or since). I have hyper-sensitive, rosacea skin with a lot of freckles, and she was able to make me incredibly naturally look even and dewy. Everything she did lasted ALL night, no shifting, smudging, or budging. She also applied eyelash extensions that were amazing. Her Vivalyn products work wonders, and Audra works magic!

Cinta did an amazing job!! I’m getting married in a few months and I’m definitely going to have her as my makeup artist on my special day. She’s very talented and pays attention to detail. I’ve never felt more beautiful then when I was in her chair.

I was so pleased with Lauren's craft and setting appointments was easy. She accommodated my limited availability with work travel and did a fabulous job on my make up and wedding party. We did a trial so we could efficiently get to the look I was hoping for on my special day. She was so professional, talented, and who wouldn't want their stylists to come to them on their wedding day! Logistics are hectic enough! I'm so glad I didn't go with a traditional salon solution to my wedding day. Thanks Lauren! The pictures from my day are stunning - makeup held all day, outdoors, with a little rain!

Michelle is an outstanding makeup artist and such a pleasure to work with, her kind and caring personality makes you feel as though you've been friends forever. I've worked with her on many different occasions, bridesmaid makeup, special occasions, and even Halloween makeup. I've already booked her for my bridal makeup! I highly recommend Michelle for your next event. Her prices are also great!
