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.

Tai was absolutely amazing. I contacted her to do makeup for my 5 bridesmaids. Since each of my bridesmaids has different skin color (from pale to dark), I wanted to make sure that I found the makeup artist that would adapt to each girl and make every girl feel beautiful...Tai was impecable. We were going for a natural and organic look which is exactly what Tai created! All the girls loved their makeup and felt beautiful! Tai was very responsive and accommodating from the start. Her passion to create beauty is what makes her so good! She listens to your ideas, and recreates your vision (even better than you initially envisioned it). I would highly recommend working with Tai!

Tai did my hair and makeup for my wedding trial, dyed my hair last minute for my bachelorette party and did hair & makeup for all 5 my girls and myself! I hired her instantly! She did an amazing job and was extremely easy to get along with. I strongly recommend brides-to-be to consider Tai for their bridal makeup or any makeup and/or hair service for any occasion. She's more than a makeup artist, I would consider her a friend! We started talking about work and now we chat about life! I highly recommend her for any service you may need. Thanks, Tai!

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!

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!

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!

I did trails with a total of four different makeup artists for my wedding. Monica by far is the most experienced, communicative, organized, and generous. First, all of her instruments were clean (brushes, sponges, spatulas...) and she mixed colors on a glass mirror instead of with her hands or on the palette. Second, she asked for my opinion/thoughts on every product BEFORE putting it on my face and I could tell she welcomed all the comments. This is extremely important to me in a trial since so many artists are stubborn in the way they like to do makeup--I sensed none of that in Monica. She was willing to change the look as we went multiple times. Third, after my trial, I kept in communication with Monica with pictures throughout the day and suggestions (for example, that the eyeliner was transferring onto my eyelid fold). She kept these in mind between the trial and service day. Some concerns: When putting together the final contract, there were some math errors (to my advantage). I corrected these and no harm done. Monica had to back out of my service date due to a family emergency and left me in the hands of her assistant (and gave me a free second trial), who is equally talented, but not as organized or experienced. My wedding day look turned out great, still... I wish that I had Monica instead.

Rubi did my makeup for a trial before my wedding. It's obvious that she's talented and took her time, which I really appreciated. At the end of the day, I decided to do my own makeup for the wedding because I prefer a super natural look and very rarely put on anything more than mascara. But if you're a makeup lover, Rubi's amazing and you'll be in good hands :)

Rubi was the makeup artist for my best friends wedding recently and she was amazing! She was so sweet and she did a fantastic job and made sure it was done well and we were happy. My makeup lasted well into the night until I took it off! She was very reasonably priced too!

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!

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.

You had such a huge part in make me beautiful on my most special day! 💕

Lilly was great! She really did a wonderful job with my and my bridesmaids hair. She is very sweet and really works hard to do what you ask. We had some last minute makeup changes she went with the flow. She also took care of the flower girl. She and her staff were very personable and professional. It was a little rough in the beginning because I was having trouble communicating what I wanted but she was able to do a second trial and it all worked out in the end.

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.

I was very fortunate to have Nausheen as my makeup artist for my 3-day Indian style wedding. She impressed me from our first meeting during my complimentary makeup trial. She is meticulous in what she does and has an eye for detail when it came to hair, make-up, and draping/jewelry placement. She is knowledgeable about all the products she uses, and insists on only using high-quality organic/vegan makeup. She was sensitive to my needs and wants and devised a makeup plan for each event that i was happy and comfortable with. I received raving compliments from family and friends for all 3 of my looks. One family member was brought to tears by how beautiful she thought I looked. I cannot thank Nausheen enough for all that she has done to help me look my best during the most important event of my life. I recommend her without reservation.

Jenni was the best make-up artist for our wedding. She is very nice, helpful, made the bridal party so very beautiful, great person to work with. The price was great and the work was amazing. The false eye lashes that she used were amazing - so comfortable that you didn't even feel them on the eye lids. Super happy with the service and will definitely use again for the future. Hire with confidence!!! Thanks so much for helping us be beautiful on our special day!

Lauren was fantastic! I booked a makeup artist for my wedding and a week before she had to have emergency surgery!!! She recommended Lauren and I had my trial exactly one week before my wedding. She came to me for the trial and it really put me at ease how great it was to have her come to me. I loved it even more than the previous makeup artist. The day of the wedding she arrived so ready to go with energy that my bridesmaids were excited. She did each of my 10 bridesmaids beautifully and then squeezed in my mother, mother-in-law and grandmother at the last minute. She even did touch ups after and made sure I was fresh for the photographer! It was such a great experience and we had so much fun. I recommend Lauren to anyone and everyone!!! Thank you again!

I got my makeup done for my brother's wedding last week and loved my makeup! It's super hard for me to trust people doing my makeup because I consider myself pretty good at doing my own but I absolutely loved it! I had never had airbrush before and it was so great to have it stay all night and feel like nothing. My mom was super happy and my now sister and her bridesmaids were all in love with their makeup. I now know who I'm booking my my wedding in November!
