In my search for my MUA I came across Vesta. When I saw her portfolio she had models of different ethnicities so you were really able to tell that she can work with diverse types of facial features and knew exactly how to accentuate them. When I contacted Vesta for a trial she got back to me right away and gave me the option of getting my trial done at her place or mine. Options are always a great convenience. When I had my trial with Vesta she was very nice, fun to talk to and the makeup was amazing. She understood my vision and listened to what I was looking for and did exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, she came to Queens and she was awesome. She got there on time and got started right away. There were a total of 7 of us, 6 bridesmaids and myself, the bride. She worked diligently and made sure each one of the girls, including me, was perfect for the day. She was really great with time management and she worked very efficiently. She really listened to each girl to find out what they liked but she made it that much better than any of us imagined. My make-up on the day of was flawless. I didn’t think it was possible that it could be better than the trial but it was even better! I loved it so much I didn’t want to wash it off at the end of the night! I’ve seen some pictures from family members and friends and the makeup looks amazing in the photos. I can’t wait to see the photos taken by our photographer. Vesta is a makeup artist who can enhance your natural beauty and create the perfect look. She can transform the ordinary, into the extraordinary and beyond. Whether you need makeup for a wedding or a special event, or maybe just the perfect photo, you can count on Vesta for flawless beauty. I wanted to look and feel beautiful on my wedding day and that’s exactly what Vesta did and I can’t thank her enough!! Thank you so much for everything, you definitely have magic hands….

First I would like to start by saying that I am so pleased to have made the decision to hire Ochanya to give me makeup lessons. She is very talented and has so much passion for makeup. Ochanya is very professional and what I loved the most is that she uses proper sanitation to keep everything clean. She is a great teacher. She has patience and is very knowledgeable. She makes sure she gives you the service you want. She makes you look beautiful. I hope that as she continues to grow with her talent that she goes far with her career. She always puts her clients first and she listen to what you want and makes sure she makes you look amazing. I highly recommend Ochanya. I continue taking lessons with her and will definitely recommend her and use her for an occasion I may need. Her professionalism and talent is superb! Ana Santiago

I was taking part in a video shoot for the nonprofit I work for and needed makeup for camera. I have no experience with makeup and Sharon put me at ease. Sharon came through to my hotel and took care of my makeup. She even sent me on my way with some powder and lip balm to apply on set. She was communicative, prompt and professional. If I ever needed a makeup artist again in NYC, I would definitely reach out.

I can't say enough good things about my bridal makeup experience with Steph!! From the start, she was professional and super easy to get in touch with - while being warm and friendly at the same time. From our first phone call through our demo and all the way through my wedding day, Steph made my mom, my bridesmaids and I so happy and comfortable! She really knows her stuff and wasn't phased at all when my MoH started with a half-up/half-down look but came back two hours later and asked for a full updo. I knew whoever I hired for to do my bridal hair and makeup would be spending a considerable amount of time in a big house with my crazy family running in and out, so it was really important to me that the person I chose could roll with the punches and help me stay relaxed in the midst of the chaos....Steph was definitely the best woman for the job. I'm still getting compliments a week later on how beautiful and natural our makeup looked, and I can't stop looking at photos of my updo and wondering how it's all my own hair. There about a million reasons why I wish I could go back and relive the day, but one of the biggest is because I wish I could get pampered and beautified by Steph all over again. She is THE BEST!

Dany was amazing. I was super nervous about the quality of the makeup during 90 plus degree weather at my our door shower. At 1 am my makeup was still flawless and had many compliments during my party. I will be using her services in the future :)

I hired Tatiana to do my makeup for my bridal shower. She was on time (at 7am!), confirmed the day before (since I forgot), texted with me, and most importantly, she did a great job! She happily dealt with my huge crazy dog and a house full of loud visiting family members. She did exactly what I asked of her and even made a change at the end when I decided I wanted to go darker on the eyes ☺️ the makeup lasted all day and looked wonderful! I would definitely recommend her 👍🏼⭐️

I had the pleasure of having Jomora do my makeup for my cousin’s wedding. She was on time, paid attention to detail, extremely professional and kind. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to get their make up done. She was also willing to work with me on pricing given that it was a special event.

Sharon was the makeup artist for my daughter's wedding and entire bridal party (9 of us) on 5/6/17. She is an incredible professional makeup artist and a perfectionist. Everyone looked stunning! Sharon puts 150% of herself into her work. As the mother of the bride,I had a makeup trial with Sharon and she worked with me, to find the makeup colors amd products that looked best on me, with my skin, hair color amd gown. She took the time to answer every singe email and we exchanged quite a few, my doing.) She knew EXACTLY what I needed to look my best. No one in the wedding pasty looked overdone, but we all looked perfect in our pictures and up close. My daughter (the bride), looked absolutely stunning. Sharon knew just how much makeup she needed to look even more beautiful in photos, yet not fake or overdone, up close. So don't think twice about hiring Sharon. She is incredible at what she does, she's prompt, reliable, and can accomplish magic with makeup. You get more than your money's worth. By the way, she is fun and wonderful to have around on a wedding day. Hire her!!!

Sophia is one of the best makeup artist I have every had the opportunity to encounter. She really listens to you and executes exactly what you want. She is also a complete joy to spend time with. When I get my makeup done with her I feel like I’m hanging out with one of my girlfriends! She is very responsive with all communication. She wil always go above and beyond, whether making last minute appointment times or providing information about beauty and makeup. There is no one else I rather have do my makeup. She is simply amazing!!! I can’t wait until next time :)
