I put up my ad for a wedding makeup artist and Tai was the first to respond. I set up a trial with her at her place and it was a great time. Tai made sure to make any changes I wanted to see on the spot. She also took photos and sent them to me so that I could view them later to decide what I wanted to do for the wedding. I later messaged Tai and let her know of a few changes I wanted on the brows, lipcolor, etc. On the wedding day, Tai made the exact changes I requested and it turned out beautiful! She also gave my two bridesmaids the natural pretty glow that I was looking for. I was a little worried about timing, but she finished doing makeup on all three of us in less than 1.5 hours. A very easygoing, flexible, and talented makeup artist. I would recommend Tai to anyone!
I worked with Monique as my makeup stylist for a wedding I was attending (as a guest). I was blown away by how amazing she made me look and feel. She took my ideas on what I wanted and took them to the next level. I was so happy with the end result, and my husband and friends didn't stop complimenting me all night. Thank you Monique!
Lerin did a great job doing my makeup on my wedding day (12-12-15)! She and an assistant did makeup for 11 girls (including myself, 3 moms, my aunt, my step sister, & my 5 bridesmaids). Everyone looked wonderful & makeup was tailored to each person's personal taste. Would recommend 100% to anyone who wants to get makeup professionally done. Lerin is also very personable & responsive. So happy that I found her as I had researched many other makeup artists but their makeup abilities, in my opinion, were not up to par with Lerin's. I plan on using Lerin for any future special occasions or photoshoots.
I hired Traci to do makeup for my wedding and she did a phenomenal job! She was reliable, efficient and had great expertise. My group of girls had a "natural look" preference and she made us all look so elegant - and the makeup stayed on ALL NIGHT! Seriously - I didn't have to do a single touch up. I received so many compliments and felt SO great all night long. 5 stars all around. Thanks Traci!
I could not be more grateful for finding such amazing makeup artists for my wedding. I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to makeup (I have done my own makeup for all of my brothers weddings instead of getting it done) but she made me feel so beautiful without being over done. My main concern was if she'd be able to cover up a few blemish scars and she completely did! My bridesmaids and I were beyond pleased and would use her a million times over. Thank you so much !!!
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!
Julie was amazing! she did my hair and makeup for both my bridal portrait sitting and my wedding, as well as a few ladies in my bridal party. I wish I had occasion to have her do my makeup and hair ALL the time because she was fabulous. Professional, on time, friendly, and everyone looked fantastic. 10/10 would absolutely pick her again!
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.
Anastacia was a DREAM! I needed to be ready SUPER early in the morning.. She got to my apartment at 6am to start doing my hair and makeup for my wedding. The makeup and hair looked perfect throughout the day and was still in great shape when I came home that night at 1am (even after crying through the entire wedding ceremony that morning with no touch ups)! Anastacia was so wonderful. She was easy going, funny, talented, a great listener when it came to what I was looking for, and made my wedding look everything I dreamed it would be. If you need someone to make you look perfect - she's your girl.
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.
Alpha was AMAZING!! I cannot rescindShe did my daughter's makeup for prom. She traveled to our home and showed up totally ready for action. She is very professional, she made my daughter feel like VIP Because she brought a real life client makeup chair,
Branden did my makeup for my wedding and it was perfection. He also did 6 of my bridesmaids and they were all raving about him/extremely pleased. He has done my makeup for other events and is always on time, fun to chat with and most of all does an amazing job. I️ would highly remorecommend Branden to do your makeup for any occasion!
Almaz is an amazing makeup artist who is extremely professional, pays close attention to detail and is knowledgeable in working with all skins types!! I love that my makeup felt weightless and looked so natural. Can’t wait to book my next makeup session with her!
Angel is a phenomenal makeup artist. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is seeking a professional for any occasion. She offered some great makeup tips/advice that were very helpful, and I can’t wait to try them myself. I was very pleased with my results, and would definitely use her services again
We had such a great experience! She was able to achieve the desired look despite 3 kids running around. She was very professional & a great artist. As a bonus, the makeup lasted all day, in 80 degree heat. Thank you! Can't wait to work with you again!
Her quality of work is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. She can transform your face to look like a superstar walking on the red carpet. She uses great products (nothing cheap) and the makeup last all day. I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for an excellent makeup artist. She definitely fits the criteria!
Mia did an OUTSTANDING job on my makeup for my wedding day!! She gave me the exact look that I wanted! She was on time and very easy to communicate with prior the appointment. I would definitely work with Mia again in the future.
Emily truly has talent. For someone who has struggled with skin issues for a long time, I find the getting my makeup done can be a huge burden - makeup artists don't cover it well, cover it too much etc. - but Emily did an incredible job and made me feel beautiful at the end. I already can't wait for her to do it next time!. I only wish I could keep it for a week instead of just a day!
I had great experiences with Mjay The Great, she is a great makeup Artist she does an excellent job on my makeup, she's very professional, very punctual,very responsible,and she has great work quality
My makeup artist, Nika, arrived right on time and gave me exactly the natural look that I asked for. My face looked terrific in the photos I took that day, and the makeup stayed on until bedtime. I’d definitely recommend her to everyone who is looking for professional makeup artist. From now on, she is my favorite.
Very professional! On time and her designs are beautiful, the kids love it!
