Winstead is a multi-talented artist on many platforms that I've had the pleasure of witnessing. Winstead was the hair/makeup artist on set of my first photoshoot in VA, and more recently, he directed and produced my first video interview! His talents know no boundaries, and he's nothing short of a pleasure to work with. Winstead is a true professionsal.

Erin was a really nice, talented makeup artist! She did a great job with the dark smokey eyes I wanted, was on time, and communicated quickly when I emailed her. My only suggestion would be to let people know what products you can offer for certain skin types- I have sensitive/acne prone skin (I had asked what she had and got a broad answer of "everything"). I ended up doing my foundation prior to her arrival Bc I did not know if she had one I could use and my skin breaks out at the sight of comogenic formulas! But overall she was great. I would use her again. Thanks Erin!

Jen sent one of her staff makeup artist named JUSTINA!!! She did a fantastic job making my daughter glamourous for her Senior PROM this past weekend. Jen and Justina were very professional and affordable! Jen sent a questionnaire to my daughter asking her to describe the look she ted to have for her Prom and Justina delivered!!! I would highly recommend these makeup professionals for any occasion where you want your sweetheart to be fabulous!!!!!

First let me say, Tenia is beyond a gifted makeup artist. I arrived late to my venue and stressed out. When I entered the room, a hot mess, Tenia was setup, patiently waiting for me. She calmed me down and did her magic; as they say, “My face was beat for the gods”. When I looked in the mirror, I didn’t recognize myself. I cannot thank Tenia enough for making me look and feel like a Queen. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist.

Francisca is amazing! She was prompt and did a fantastic job. I couldn't believe how quick she was. She is so friendly and easy going and informs you what she's doing throughout the whole process. She's a sweet and extremely talented makeup artist! She even let me know what ringlights she uses when she takes photos. I go to the DC area often, so I will definitely be using her services again!

Mia was awesome! She actually saved my wedding day!! I decided very very last minute to hire a makeup artist and hair stylist, and of course no one was available TWO days before my big day. Mia came to my rescue on her day off!! She was extremely professional, very kind, and did a fantastic job!! I would definitely use her services again in the future!! Thank you Mia!!!

Roma is a wonderful makeup artist! I looked flawless on the day of my trial and she was definitely to one to pick for my wedding day! She did not only my makeup but all of my bridesmaids as well as my mother. She is able to tailor everyone's makeup to what they want whether its over the top or super subtle! Book her now before she's taken :)

I loved my experience with Jayde during my makeup trial. I wanted someone who was not only professional and great at what they do, but also personable. Not only did she beat my face to the gods (lol), she was also very funny and cool to talk to. She is now officially the makeup artist that my family and I will use in a lot of official events. I am confident that she will make me the most beautiful bride on my wedding day.

I feel very lucky that I met this wonderful artist. She is on point at what she does- fabulous make up! Kendra is much experienced and is very insightful, smart and has excellent interpersonal skills, which is very important in this industry. She is punctual! Long story short, I highly recommend Kendra and I will definitely keep going back to her.

Aubrielle was perfect! She applied makeup on my stepdaughter's face for her prom and she outshined each and every girl at the prom. Her look was nude with a splash of glam. Not only was she on time, applied the makeup well, and super nice, she educated me on the who, what, when, where, how, and why on applying and using makeup. Too bad she is located in Maryland because I am getting married in Chicago. I hope I am able to find someone just as good. In the meantime, going forward, I will be using her for any upcoming events. Thanks Aubry! :-)

Gul and her partner were both very responsible and showed up on time for my wedding.. I knew that I could count on them to be there for my special day. From the minute I met Gul, she continued to respond to my messages very quickly and gave very helpful advice and answered any questions that I had. They are both very good makeup artists and only use the best quality makeup and products.. You can count on them to make you look flawless on your wedding day, and they will put in as much time as you need them to get the job done. If you want a makeup artist who will do any makeup look you like, use high end products, and give you only the best advice possible then you can count on these two ladies 100%. They will not let you down. I think more people should know about NGK studio because these two girls truly are experts in the work that they do and they are very hardworking they will not let you down. I promise. I got so many compliments on how flawless I looked the day of my wedding, and how amazing my hair looked that day. People couldn't stop raving over the fact that I just looked like I walked out of a movie.. I was very tired that day too(functioning on only one hour of sleep and they were somehow able to transform me into a celebrity) You will look amazing too on your wedding day four sure=) =) I am usually very picky with who I decide to do my makeup, but there was just something about this girl that I could tell she would do a fantastic job and I was right. Spread the word, these girls are experts!!! Sincerely, Dana

Judith and Jossi are kind and professional, and it was fun to have my trial hair and makeup done by them. I only had vague ideas of what I wanted for my updo and makeup, but these artists did their magic and I was amazed by the outcome. I trust them completely with my and my bridesmaids' hair and makeup on my wedding day.
