Tai , I never wear make- up, so when my son was getting married I knew I would have to try out several makeup artists. I wanted to make sure that I could find one who could help me feel comfortable all day and look great in these memorable pictures. I tried out several and Tai made me feel like a friend from our first meeting. We talk while she did the test like old friends. After my make-up was finished, I went out and ran some errands. I felt glamorous. I had told her my daughter also wanted her makeup done for the wedding but she was unable to come to the test. Tai was gracious and handled it in stride. I didn’t feel rushed the day of my son’s wedding and felt quite pampered. My daughter and I were stunning. I will use Tai in the future and I would HIGHLY recommend her.

Monique and her mom, Betty, were incredible to work with! I had a lot of bumps in the road--changes in numbers, addresses, etc-- and Monique was more than understanding throughout the whole process. From our first conversation to our final goodbyes, she was nothing but kind, professional and fun to hang out with and talk to! She was also more than willing to listen to what I had in mind for myself and bridesmaids (and my mom too!) and also make her own professional suggestions to really make sure we all looked our best on my special day. The makeup didn't move all night, despite lots and lots of happy tears! She even gave us all little lip kits for touchups throughout the day! I really do owe the world to Monique and Betty for being such a pivotal part of my wedding day. If you're looking for a flexible, talented, warm and fun makeup artist, look no further! Monique is your girl!

Delia was great! She was so warm and friendly and listened to my overall concerns. She left me looking like a million bucks without having to spend that much. I was pleasantly surprised because she was much more affordable than other makeup artists. Delia definitely knows what she's doing and I would hire her again, I got many compliments on my makeup, which lasted all through the night. The only not so positive thing I have to comment is she did run a little late due to another appointment, but she was still very professional, and let me know, rather than keep me waiting for her, which was much appreciated.

I found Traci using this website recommended to me by my mother-in-law. I had experienced a rough make-up trial before and wasn't satisfied so I was on the hunt for a new makeup artist. Traci was prompt in responding to my requirements, and her pricing was very reasonable for her services. We made an appointment THAT WEEK for her to swing by my house and do a pre-trial. During our pre-trial, she was professional, personable, and listened to my needs. The pre-trial was amazing. She spent a few hours working with me, trying to create the perfect wedding look! She is very easy-going, easy to talk to, and overall, I enjoyed the experience. I loved the fact that she kept in touch with me the month before my wedding to share with me new products she received that we could use on my big day! When the big-day was here, she was prompt and made me look GORGEOUS. There was not a single thing I can think of that I was disappointed in or anything that went wrong. I give her 5 stars because she went above and beyond to make me feel beautiful and stunning. Thank you Traci for all your hard work!

Lisa did my makeup as a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding. I felt like she really understood what I wanted and was able to give recommendations. Some makeup artists say "pick you own color" and she was able to say what blush/lipstick/etc. she thought would look best with the eye look. She also did great brows!

Marzena is incredibly professional and an absolute joy to work with. She handled 7 heads of hair and 5 faces of makeup with ease on the morning of my wedding. Her airbrush makeup will last through countless happy tears and even hours of sweaty dancing. I still looked great for my after party! She is flexible and so easy to work with. You do not feel any hesitation giving her feedback during your hair and makeup on things you do not like as she will accommodate you so graciously. If you are looking for in-house or hotel hair & makeup, Marzena will not let you down. Additionally, her prices are extremely competitive and affordable for you and your bridesmaids.

Eva is the BEST makeup artist. She is extremely professional and makes you feel like a princess. I had originally hired Eva for my bridal makeup but after my bridal trial I ended up hiring for several other events including my wedding makeup. The day of the wedding she arrived early, got everyone done ahead of schedule but made sure everyone looked great and was satisfied. She definitely goes above and beyond to make sure you are happy. I will definitely hire her for future events.

Lilly was absolutely fantastic to work with. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as hair and makeup for several of my bridesmaids. Everything looked perfect and held up well. She was also very responsive to feedback. I had some changes to my makeup look after my trial and the final product ended up perfect. My hair also held up incredibly for the entir night. Would absolutely recommend and hire again.

Professional and efficient! Allison was so pleasant and after I showed her a picture of what I wanted for an updo, actually made my hair look better than the picture I showed her. Her makeup artistry was fabulous- and her attention to detail was much appreciated! (Blending down to neck) you won’t go wrong if you hire her! She really has exceptional talent with makeup!

Des does absolutely amazing work. She is very responsive to what you actually want your makeup to look like and specializes her palettes for the exact look you are going for. Des will tell you step by step what she’s using and show you throughout the process to ensure you get the desired look.
