Jasmine was great! I never had airbrush makeup before and I was in awe at how it turned out! She is my new makeup artist for sure and her price is reasonable!

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.

If you are reading this review to decide weather or not to book Event Hair &Makeup you should stop reading now and go book them before someone else does! I truly could not have been more pleased with the service we received. Tanya was the first vender to respond to my request for on location hair and make up quotes. Her rates were on the low end for what we were asking for. (This scared me a bit because you often get what you pay for.) She promptly returned my call when I decided to try out her services. When discussing details for a trail hair and makeup session, I discovered she was nearly 2 hours away from my home and yet she did not hesitate to accommodate us. She called to confirm time and location the day before the trail session and arrived on schedule. She was prepared and professional as she listened to what "Becca" (the bride) was envisioning for her look. We quickly became confident in her skills. Becca LOVED the look Tanya created and told me later she felt beautiful. Even after the long drive and time she had already spent on Becca, Tanya agreed to also give me a hair cut to update my look. The day before the wedding again, Tanya called to confirm the time and location. On the day of the wedding when we arrived at the venue Tanya and her assistant Nellie were already there and set up ready to start. They both worked for hours on hair for the bride,maid of honor,bridesmaid,mother of the bride, and mother of the groom. Also, without any complaint they did hair for the brides sister-in-law as a least minute add on. They did undos, long curls, braids,half up half down and even added hair acsessories. We were ALL very pleased with the results! Tanya did all the makeup and her skills are amazing. I need to mention here that the bride is a redhead with very pale skin tone and one of the bridesmaids was Asian with carmel skin tone, and I have old lady skin. Tanya was able to flawlessly match and blend the right foundation to each of our very different skin tones and the results looked so natural. As a make up artist Tanya treated each face as an individual canvas and give us fresh glamour without caking on the makeup. We again were ALL beyond pleased with the results. If the skills, great price and professionalism that Event hair and Makeup team brings to an event is not enough, Tanya's personality was always light and fun and had a way of making us relax, enjoy and forget about the stress of the wedding ceremony. In my opinion, Event Hair and Makeup demonstrated professionalism and outstanding skills . Tanya is an amazing makeup artist and Tanya and Nellie are both gifted in achieving a wide range of hair styles. I will not hesitate to book them again for our next event. I feel confident in recommending them.

Esha and her team made me feel beautiful and super glam on my wedding day. They patiently curled a million of my 26 inch extensions and made me look amazing. My ladies were all super happy with the way their hair and makeup turned out. I loved that she did my makeup the way I like and didn't try to give me a natural look like a lot of makeup artists do! I got compliments all night!

I highly recommend using Stephanie for any occasion! She is very professional and very talented. Her prices are very reasonable compared to other makeup artists I researched. She is also very responsive and easy to communicate with. We communicated via text and she always responded in a timely manner, even if I reached out several times a week. After having my makeup trial with her, I immediately hired her for my wedding. A lot of stress comes with planning a wedding but makeup was something I never had to stress about. I had a few questions about different products and different makeup styles. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and gave me trustworthy advice. She really listened to all my wants/concerns and my makeup came out perfect! It is also very evident that she is passionate about what she does. My mom, my aunt, my four bridesmaids and I all had our makeup done by Stephanie for my wedding. Everyone has completely different tastes when it comes to makeup. I told Stephanie what guidelines I wanted her to follow for my bridesmaids. She was able to accommodate each bridesmaid’s style while sticking to my guidelines. Everyone was so happy with their makeup, my mom even cried when she saw herself in the mirror. (FYI - my mom’s makeup did NOT run when she cried!) Everyone’s makeup also stayed on the entire night, even after the wedding was long over. She was very punctional the morning of my wedding as well. She came early to set everything up so the setup time did not take away from the time she had to do anyone’s makeup. I don’t have anything bad to say and wouldn’t change a thing!

The Royal Slay Makeup artist was extremely accommodating. I am a person that does not wear makeup. I have sensitive skin. She tested my skin to be sure there were no allergic reactions. She also listened to my pet-peeves about former experiences with other makeup artist. The makeup did not looked caked on. It looked natural. I was pleased. The Royal Slay Makeup artist is knowledgeable about her craft and her product. She arrived earlier than the appointed time on my wedding day. I cried throughout the majority of my wedding ceremony and my makeup never ran or smeared. I would and have recommended her services to anyone for any occasion.

Jamilah made-up my sweet 16 daughter fabulously. She was prompt and very professional. Jamilah is a true makeup artist and blended my daughter's theme colors (blue and silver) into her makeup artistry just perfect.!!!

I had the privilege of having Mariel as my makeup artist. She was very professional and efficient. I was absolutely happy with her work. FLAWLESS! Many compliments 😇. I flew in from the bay area to attend a wedding in Philly. I put my full confidence in Mariel. I highly recommend her. I actually would fly in for a few hours just for Mariel to do my makeup again.

Ms. Cash is very professional and gentle with the children. She face painted at an end of the year School Fun Day. Face Painting was a great addition to the event. The children loved their face paint designs. Will hire her again for in the future.

While attempting to acquire makeup services for my upcoming wedding, Jennifer was extremely professional and understanding of my needs. She set up a trial within a quick amount of time and was very responsive to my needs. She was also very easy to talk to and felt like I knew her previously. She worked quickly and efficiently and I was extremely pleased with the results! I cannot wait to see my bridal party all made up under Jennifer Lynne's care, she is truly magnificent as a makeup artist!

I hired Renee for my wedding and bridal shower. She did an AMAZING job! She was everything I was looking for. People are still talking about how good I looked. I literally thank God that I found her. I will most definitely be working with Renee again. Her contact information will forever live in my phone. I had a really hard time finding a makeup artist who serviced both Ethnic and Caucasian skin tones. Though her pictures on her website are mostly Caucasian her background is lovely. Renee was trained in NYC, has previously worked NY fashion week, and has done work for Essense magazine. She isn't like the current MUAs who literally cake the makeup on. I love Renee because she enhanced the features I already had. Her style was perfect for me, my girls, and family. My bridesmaids raved about her. Renee ensured she had every color for our skin tones. She even purchased a variety of different pallets to make sure the day was everything I dreamed of. I love working with Renee. She is one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. Her patience is unreal. She allowed me to be me high maintenance and never batted an eye. Although I hired her for her serviced she in the end became a friend. I really do look forward to connecting with her again. She helped make my wedding day magical.

Shaleese is a very talented and passionate Make-up Artist. She did the makeup for my wedding, and since then I've referred weddings to her, and they were just as happy as I was. Her application skills are awesome. I recommend her highly!

Attending a wedding far away while your husband is a part of the wedding party was stressful enough. But also trying to figure out what to do with your time until you have to go to the wedding is another thing entirely. I decided to treat myself and get my hair done. Christina was very quick to respond and was even willing to come up to my hotel room. While we exchanged messages, she asked what kind of style I was looking for so I showed her a picture of a style I saw online. Upon speaking with her to confirm everything she seemed very cordial and was enthusiastic about our upcoming appointment. She was easy to reach and was flexible with her arrival time. Everything about her time spent getting set up and then working on my hair was professional and we were chatting like we were old friends. I am 150% satisfied with the finished product and would recommend her anytime!
