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

Tatiana showed up right on time, if not a few min early, for both the trial and the actual wedding day despite the bomb cyclone weather that hit NYC. She made myself, mom, and sis-in-law look and feel absolutely beautiful. She worked with us to each of our requests/tastes/styles and recommended options when we were unsure. None of us wear makeup very much, so she was the perfect balance. Her instagram sold it for me, to see real brides still look like themselves, while also with an added glow and glamour - exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend her and would love to have an occasion to work with her again!

Renee did an excellent job. My hair and makeup was so beautiful, the compliments did not stop coming. I had complete strangers saying how beautiful my makeup especially was. Renee was very professional, I loved the fact that she disinfect her tools before and after using them. Thank you so much for everything, Sherene

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!

I booked Sarah last minute for onsight makeup for a wedding I was in. I explained to her what I wanted and she executed it perfectly! She went out of her way to make things easier for me as I flew in from across the country the night before. I will be using her next time I am in NJ for sure. Highly recommended for any of your makeup needs!

Rondha was phenomenal! She was punctual, super responsive, and professional. She had all the necessary equipment, lights, chairs, and of course, the makeup! She was a breeze to work with, I didn't have to give her much direction and she did exactly what I wanted, and not just for me, but also for my sister and mom. And she gave my mom eyebrows (see pic)! I will definitely be using her again.

I reached out to Clarissa to do my makeup for prom and she was amazing. She travelled to me and arrived on time. I was completely in love with my makeup. She worked quickly but carefully to make everything perfect. I wasn't sure what look I wanted to go for at first but she gave me her recommendation and it turned out to be amazing!! She was able to completely transform me for my prom and I would highly recommend her.

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 my first makeup lesson with Kat and it really exceeded my expectations. She is so professional and friendly. The set up was amazing, very organized and clean. She gives detailed instructions and takes her time to explain each step. I literally have zero knowledge in makeup and no experience at all and she has so much patience and nicely corrected me and would show me the right way to do it. My end result was flawless and I'm so happy with it. I already set up my next lesson with her and I can't wait to absorb as much as I can of her knowledge.

I was given the name of these ladies as a referral from our makeup artist and oh man were they incredible!! They did the hair of 8 girls the morning of my wedding, and everyone looked soooo beautiful! - They were so personable and were so fun to hang out with the morning of the wedding. They did incredible work on our hair - and i was so worried my curls were going to go flat (as they usually do whenever my hair is done) and they held PERFECTLY well into the next day. My bridal party still talks about how wonderful they were, and even went as far as to helping my guys pin flowers to their jackets since they weren't sure how to. They were so much fun and everything looked so great! thank you sooo much for your help and love!! Trish & Ari Palomino

Rica is definitely a professional. I had my hair and makeup trial with her last week and I am confident I am in good hands for my wedding (which is next week!!). Before the trial, I sent her pics and videos of what I was looking for so she was prepared. At the trial, she gave me her expert opinion on what would/would not work and then worked her magic. I'm always a bit weary about having a professional do my makeup because I'm of Asian descent and most non-Asian MUAs don't know how to work with Asian features. I have to say... Rica impressed me! She did some research before the trial and then we worked with each other to get the ideal look for me for the wedding. Rica is also such an honest, trustworthy person. I could tell from reading her reviews and speaking to her via email and on the phone even before we met that she takes pride in what she does and she has experience too. Can't wait to see the final hair and makeup result on my wedding day!! I will post another review after the wedding!

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!!!

Dany was excellent! I loved having her do my makeup - I don't wear a lot of makeup but Dany was very patient with me and tear ducts! My makeup looked fabulous for my engagement photoshoot in NYC. Honestly, I can not recommend Dany enough! She did a great job! I got compliments on my makeup all night long at my friends wedding!

Extremely talented make up artist with incredible attention to detail! My make up for the wedding I attended was stunning and the exact look I wanted for the occasion thanks to her creativity and skills! The makeup also lasted for the entire night, including through the typical wedding ceremony tears. Highly recommend BeautyCall Glam!
