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.

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!

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 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 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!

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 booked darshi for my engagement party makeup and I have to say I was very very impressed with her skills. She's very professional. She knows what she's doing and would listen to any feedback you give her to make you look your very best. Shes friendly and has an amazing comforting personality. It was a delight having her do my makeup and I would definitely book her again.

Kimberly was awesome! She did a trial makeup run for me and was willing to travel for a small extra charge. The day of the wedding she drove to us and she did my makeup, along with my moms and six bridesmaids in about 5 hours. Everyone loved their makeup and her prices are so great. Highly recommend! Thank you!!

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!

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.

Lara did a great job! The make up was exactly as we had discussed. It was a hot day and lots of dancing...and the makeup lasted all night long also Lara is the first makeup artist who has ever actually listened to what I wanted instead of doing what she thought would look good. I'm very particular person and I literally looked in the mirror when she was done and didn't want a single thing changed! Thank you Lara!
