Wedding and Event Makeup
Searching for the right makeup artist for a wedding is very nerve-racking and time consuming. However, with Denita I hit the jackpot. Denita did an excellent job at my pre-wedding trial. She listened to what I wanted and was very professional throughout the entire session. She did an excellent job with my makeup and my look held up all night with “no creasing”. I’m so excited to have found Denita’s Artistry for my special day. It feels so good to know that I now have one less thing to worry about for my wedding day. Thanks Denita, you’re awesome! See you in a few months!!!Mar 18, 2019VerifiedDenita’s Artistry 💋's reply
Thank you...I enjoyed meeting with you as well! Can't wait to see you again in July!
Wedding and Event Makeup
I clearly went over with her and it even said it in my profile I need that I sent out to a bunch of different make up artist that she did not want a lot of make up probably no Face makeup at all. I was also under the 100% understandingThat the cost would be $100 for the price$ 75 Who are the maid of honor and $50 for the flower girl. I really wanted to pay upfront but she said she wanted cash at the time and we decided and I checked it 8000 times because I’m OCD that I would pay her cash at the wedding. I was also under the impression another thing I know I checked was that was the pre-trial include it because I I can’t even remember if I had to check it off with extras or not but I checked eyelashes which were also included. And since I checked with her 10 times about it was OK to pay her at the wedding she didn’t need any money upfront and I would pay her cash I was quite surprised at the make up trial that I didn’t need to be at she never said I had to be there she never said I had to pay her at the make up trial I thought that was included after I spoke to her I put her in contact with the bride to set up the time for the make up trial ! But I was going just to stop by to see how Sheila the bride looked!I almost fell over when I walked in and saw the amount of make up that was caked On her face especially after our multiple conversations of me telling her and my profile saying that not a lot of make up probably no face make up she wants it natural it was so bad me her and her husband to be all thought that she looked like she was ready to be buried she looks like somebody does when you go to a wake! And if that’s not bad enough I look at the table where the bride is sitting in the make up artist is and there’s a whole pile of cash on the table after I told her I wanted to pay for it multiple times and tried to paint dance and checked 8000 times I’m not even exaggerating I’m sure you don’t need money upfront she never told me I thought the preach I was included I was 100% sure about that was what I was looking for and she never said a word to me as far as I knew she was getting paid at the wedding so not only did the bright have to pay because I didn’t have cash because for obvious reasons how would I know to bring cash after our conversation and since it supposed to be included! At the time she was there I didn’t see anything because I didn’t want to make it into a whole thing in front of the bride and the maid of honor‘s make up was so bad she had to put make up on over it she re did Her eyes and lips because she didn’t even want to go over her boyfriends house with the way it was done. Soon as I came to the house and saw the maid of honor the husband to be an already told his daughter that she hated and I just don’t get it because like I said I’m OCD and I see things 8000 times as you can probably tell from this review. So what I don’t get is why I won with humiliated because the bride had to pay 200 in cash or 175 in cash and tip and they gave her vegetables from their garden don’t get me wrong she’s a very nice woman but that was humiliating and that was not what I wanted and that was not what we discussed now she did say she tried to get a hold of me but we had exchange numbers and we have talked over the phone we had a few messages back-and-forth on this site she left me a message on the site she didn’t call me and Yes she had left me a message on the site but we had been using our phones not this site so at the end so I didn’t see it. Plus I was unavailable because my aunt passed away that week. And I was never told I needed to be there for it or pay her once againOr at all as I thought it was included as I asked and I swear it said it although when I went back to look after somehow there was an amount next to the free trial even though I was told the free trial and lashes were included. So my feeling is that she must’ve realized because the bride told her she cannot look like death and the bright yourself told you the same thing I told her 8000 times about no make up so she probably wanted to make money because she knew we weren’t going to use her but that’s not acceptable. And then now because of that Sheila decided who is the bride she’s not even having her make up done for the wedding all I wanted was this to be a special gift so she didn’t have toFor her wedding that she can just relax and look beautiful I don’t have a lot of money and I was spending a lot of money because she’s practically my mother-in-law. So the fact that my mother-in-law to be in the bride had to literally pay for something that looks horrible and was not at all what we asked for like I said you hear me repeating myself so you know all you have to do is look at my profile that I sent out to the make up artist and says it right there. I don’t even have time for this between my aunt dying and my parents 50th anniversary that I’m completely in charge of by myself tomorrow. I’m so annoyed that I had to spend $175 for a make up job that was so horrible that her husband to be literally said to me that she looked like she was dead getting ready for a week we want that on the day they get married it was so bad on both of them and I have to pay $175 when I didn’t even know I had to pay money be in barest now I have no bridal gift her it’s an uncomfortable situation she feels terrible that she’s not excepting the gift I feel terrible that I ruined it for her now she has to do the make up her self and I’m just disgusted and I never write bad reviews. I would like to be refunded $150 I understand she traveled and there is a $25 charge for a trip for travel she said from Hartford to Milford so I have no problem paying that but I’m not paying for that make up not only was it horrible it was literally everything we all clearly said we didn’t want she just did what she wanted I don’t think I should have to pay for that and if this gets rectified I have no problem taking this review off but otherwise Forget it I mean I would never use this site again you put her as a pro there are not many pros on there everything she did was unprofessional from telling me the pre-trial was included along with the lashes from us going over price is 10,000 times and her not mentioning any money I need 10,000 times telling her I’d pay her at the wedding and that won’t be a problem offering to give her a deposit anything nope nope nope nope she didn’t want to just cash at the wedding which I don’t even know why she wanted cash that’s weird I just wanted to pay ahead of time had I done that it went to been a problem all of this is unacceptable to meAnd honestly I don’t even recommend using your site in general this woman is so special to me and this is a very special gift and to have this happen was not only mortar fine but like I said you guys have a ride to Pro what type of pro doesn’t do what the client wants when I said no make up on her face she caked eight layers Of foundation I literally had to go to the opposite side of the room and I said well from here it looks OK I mean maybe because she does film and TV but I was just so clear about no make up she has a natural tan and her face is fine . And if you want to talk about being professional what type of person or professional tax money for my bride when I made it so clear I wanted to pay and I would pay ahead of time she never even told me I needed to be at the make up trial it was never even an issue it’s just such a horrible situation I can’t even can’t even.

7 years in this business has taught me that you can't please everyone, but you can try. I'm sorry you felt this way....take care.
Where do I begin? I’m not one who wears a lot of makeup, the most I usually put on is some mascara and fill in my brows. So when Denita did my makeup, I felt like a beauty queen!! She asked me what I wanted her to do, but I gave her full creative control and she worked her magic!!! Denita talked me through everything she was doing. She gave me lots of tips that I can use on a daily basis if I want to jazz up my normally minimal look. She also gave lots of educational information and told me where to buy the various products for reasonable prices. If you have the opportunity to have Denita be your makeup artist, grab the chance...you won’t be disappointed!!!Dec 25, 2018

So happy with my experience working with Denita! She was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and super flexible on timing. She listened to my wants and also gave great suggestions. My makeup looked amazing and lasted for a 7 hour day. I had photos taken outside, in very hot/humid weather with several outfit changes and even a little rain. Highly recommend!Aug 19, 2019VerifiedDenita’s Artistry 💋's reply
