Tai did my hair and makeup for my wedding. She and her other stylists were incredible! I had 7 bridesmaids and additional family members down for hair and makeup, and everyone was so happy with their looks! I would recommend her for any event! She was super easy going and knowledgeable. She made the morning of my wedding a piece of cake!

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!

Michelle and her assistant did makeup and hair for me and a few other people in my wedding. She did absolutely amazing! everyone's hair and makeup looked wonderful and everyone was really pleased. I was worried that my hair and makeup would not last all day but it lasted all day and then some! even after dancing all night. I got so many compliments. I highly recommend her, her prices are hard to beat and she is very reliable and flexible!

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 !!!

Patricia and her team did hair and makeup for all of my bridesmaids and flower girl and my hair. I typically wear a lot of makeup so I was too nervous to have someone else do my make-up, but I was really happy with how my hair turned out! She even put my clip-in extensions in for me. My mom and a few bridesmaids didn't like their hair and ended up re-doing it themselves, but I guess that's how it goes - some people are just more picky. Also, one of my bridesmaids had a little reaction to the false eyelash glue that was used but she just has sensitive eyes and skin so we took them off and used a different glue. I would just make sure to tell your makeup artist if you have any sensitivities. Overall, I thought it was a great experience. All of my bridesmaids felt so pampered having their hair and makeup done and I think it reduced everyone's stress levels the day of the wedding. We were able to just sit back and relax in the hotel room while Patricia and her team worked their magic on us. They were there all morning from 9am until around 1 working hard and I really appreciated it. Also, Patricia is just one of those people that's nice to be around. It felt like she and her assistants were part of the family hanging out with us! Thanks again, Patricia!

I was super nervous to hire her because this is my first time using thumbtack. I was nervous incase i ended up not liking my makeup for my formal. But she literally turned out to be my favorite makeup artist. I've been getting my makeup done at different place: Mac, sephora, color room, etc. But she's by far the best. She really makes sure your makeup/ look is perfect. If she doesn't like how something turned out/was applied, she redo's it. She really does take her time and focus's on your makeup. i had a eyebrow hair growing and she even plucked it. She really does want you to look perfect! highly recommend her :)

I recently used Gemme Jolie Belle Makeup for my wedding day makeup for myself and my 2 bridesmaids. Not only is she one of the sweetest people I've ever met, she is HIGHLY skilled and takes her time to make sure everything is perfect. During the trial there were a couple things we changed (via text) and on the day of she was spot on. I couldn't be happier with my choice to use Gemme Jolie Belle Makeup!

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.

Farah did my makeup for my wedding a couple of weeks ago an she did a terrific job. I got so many compliments on my makeup at the wedding and the photos turned out great! First and foremost, she is very sweet and easy to work with, which made the experience very pleasant. She is also very skilled at what she does. I showed her a couple of pictures of what I wanted and she did an incredible job bringing my vision to life. She only used premium brands, something that's very important to me since I'm very particular about what goes on my face. Overall, I had an amazing experience with Farah and highly recommend her.

Lisa did my makeup for my wedding. I loved my makeup!!!! She showed up to my hotel room 15 min early to set up and was very professional. I had only gotten my makeup done once before for prom and really don't know how to do it myself. Lisa made me feel so comfortable and told me what she was using on me because she must have known how nervous I was!! I felt beautiful when she was done. I highly recommend her for any special occasion... she is amazing!

Knena did my hair and makeup on my wedding day, and I couldn't be more pleased. Leading up to the day, Knena asked me some key questions to figure out what I wanted and even though I was pretty vague, she made me look beautiful! She created an elegant half up/half down hairstyle with curls and a loose braid, and incorporated a hairpiece that she didn't see until that day. Plus, Knena was willing to come to me so I could hang out with my wedding party all morning - we had a great time with Knena and her assistant/husband for a couple hours, they were fun and friendly. My makeup was natural and beautiful, and the entire look lasted all day and all night (for like 16 hours!), so I highly recommend Knena for any special event.

Three very different women had airbrush makeup for a family wedding that was so very well done with such kindness but also professionalism from Marzena with all our different personalities. The makeup lasted all night long. I didn't even sweat if off, which was what I was afraid of. The 3 of us looked so great. I could not have expected a better job and we all agreed on that point! I was very impressed. Thank you, Marzena, for making our gala night so special. It was just lovely meeting you.

Sandy was great! She did the hair and makeup for my wedding and bridal party. The makeup was perfection. My new husband loved the natural look done just right to complement my features. Everyone looked beautiful. I showed Sandy a picture of the long hair up-do I preferred and again it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her. I will definitely call her for any special event.

I would recommend Anjali to anyone! She did my makeup for a wedding last weekend, and it was such a great experience. She was on time, professional but super friendly, and she really listened to what I wanted. My makeup came out EXACTLY how I imagined it, and I am very picky. Can’t say enough good things about her!
