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!

Michelle from Hairs 2 The Bride is a friendly and professional hairstylist and makeup artist who was a joy to work with on my wedding day. I had a double ceremony wedding that lasted from 7 am until 11 pm. It required two makeup applications on myself, as well as two different hairstyles. She also applied makeup and styled hair for my two bridesmaids. Michelle was very flexible with our hectic and confusing schedule. On the day of our wedding, we had asked Michelle to show up at multiple locations. She was even able to accommodate last minute additions to services for my mom and my older sister. I would highly recommend Michelle and am happy I placed my trust in her on one of the most important days of my life.

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!

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!

I met Knena Delarkins working on a breast cancer documentary for a nonprofit organization called Pinkies in Austin, TX. I was being interviewed and filmed on camera and Knena was my makeup artist. Knena is so professional and her experiences working in Europe is impressisve. I really love her personality and how she completed my makeup for a natural look. As a recording artist and model she went above and beyond to make myself feel comfortable and she was very engaging. Knena is an awesome talent and I will be using her again for future photoshoots for my music and modeling. I recommend her highly for makeup artistry.

Living in cities like LA, D.C., Scottsdale and Chicago, Brandon is as good as it gets when it comes to a flawless makeup applications. Not only is he incredibly funny and cute, but he knows products, ingredients, and tricks for just about everything! Even his glam looks look fresh, natural, and effortless - glowing and healthy looking skin is his thing. He truly is talented and probably the most knowledgeable professional artist I've ever met. He has a true passion for his craft! I would trust him for any and every occasion! TRULY THE BEST! and be prepared to fall in love with him within seconds, he is that makeup artist you put on speed dial.

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!

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!
