I had a photoshoot scheduled for Sunday and my makeup artist cancelled on my the morning of. I immediately submitted a quote request on Thumbtack and Empress responded immediately. She traveled to me to do my makeup. She did a great job, I wanted a smoky eye and natural look…she definitely delivered. Everyone loved my make up and I can’t wait to see my photos. I definitely recommend.

I am a wedding planner and I was in desperate need of a last minute request for a MUA. I reached out to several MUA’s using this app, however Empress really “impressed” me with her speedy professional response. After my client and I reviewed her credentials via IG, we booked her immediately. Her work is absolutely outstanding! The makeup applied was just want my bride and her friends requested. She nailed it!! I will definitely add her to my vendor’s list for future clients! Thank you Empress for saving the day! The ladies looked beautiful for bachelorette party!!

Hired Empress to do makeup for Sweet 16 photo shoot for my niece. From the first contact I had with her, I was very impressed. She listened to everything I said and went above and beyond for me. My niece was so happy with her look, wasn't overly done, very natural looking for a 16 yr old and she was impressed. Already trying to book her again!! This made my niece's day and her photo shoot was a success, I could just hear the joy in her voice. Thank you Empress!!!

Let me tell you...Empress understood the assignment and did what needed to be done for what I wanted! I needed a makeup artist for my birthday photoshoot and she delivered. I sent her pics of what I was looking for and she took the time to find the exact lip color I wanted and everything. I gave her what my budget was and she was within what I needed. I will definitely use her in the future. 💜

Empress was great! I hired her to do my daughter’s makeup for her 8th Grade Formal. We weren’t able to make it to her due to time constraints. However, Empress was able to traveled to our home. She did an absolutely amazing job on my daughter’s make up. She received so many compliments from her peers and my friends and family posted so many wonderful compliments on Facebook. I will definitely use her services again. Thanks so much!
