WOW!!! Those are the only words I can use to describe the full experience of Monique's professionalism and artistry. After last minute urging from my 20something daughters to hire a makeup artist to do our faces for my 25th wedding anniversary celebration, i only provided a 3 day notice & Monique not only came to the rescue but she was our gift! She is a highly talented, ultra professional, who listens to your desires and skillfully transforms you beyond expectation. My event was last night & I am so grateful for how beautiful she had all of us looking, sharing this review was my 1st priority. Anyone seeking the absolute best, look no further. I've already stored her in my contacts as now my personal makeup artist!
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!
Great hairstylist and makeup artist ! Love her work
Anastasia's work exceeded my expectations. My daughter looked amazingly beautiful. Many people at the event made comments on how flawless and beautiful my daughter's makeup looked. I will definitely recommend her to my friends. She is an excellent makeup artist. I give her 5 STARS.
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.
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.
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!
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.
She made me feel absolutely beautiful and i couldn’t have asked for a better professional makeup artist.
Very organized and quick. Beautiful work All artists were talented, friendly and helpful. They made the day special and everyone felt beautiful!
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.
Patricia was really great to work with for my wedding makeup and hair! She does a beautiful job and worked with me to get me the results that I wanted for my big day. She was super easy to talk to and felt like a friend even though we had just met. My timeline was really short and she delivered with zero hiccups. Very responsive and talented! Highly recommend!
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!
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!
