I put up my ad for a wedding makeup artist and Tai was the first to respond. I set up a trial with her at her place and it was a great time. Tai made sure to make any changes I wanted to see on the spot. She also took photos and sent them to me so that I could view them later to decide what I wanted to do for the wedding. I later messaged Tai and let her know of a few changes I wanted on the brows, lipcolor, etc. On the wedding day, Tai made the exact changes I requested and it turned out beautiful! She also gave my two bridesmaids the natural pretty glow that I was looking for. I was a little worried about timing, but she finished doing makeup on all three of us in less than 1.5 hours. A very easygoing, flexible, and talented makeup artist. I would recommend Tai to anyone!
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!
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 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!
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!
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!
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.
Marzena is incredibly professional and an absolute joy to work with. She handled 7 heads of hair and 5 faces of makeup with ease on the morning of my wedding. Her airbrush makeup will last through countless happy tears and even hours of sweaty dancing. I still looked great for my after party! She is flexible and so easy to work with. You do not feel any hesitation giving her feedback during your hair and makeup on things you do not like as she will accommodate you so graciously. If you are looking for in-house or hotel hair & makeup, Marzena will not let you down. Additionally, her prices are extremely competitive and affordable for you and your bridesmaids.
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.
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.
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.
Alpha was AMAZING!! I cannot rescindShe did my daughter's makeup for prom. She traveled to our home and showed up totally ready for action. She is very professional, she made my daughter feel like VIP Because she brought a real life client makeup chair,
Branden did my makeup for my wedding and it was perfection. He also did 6 of my bridesmaids and they were all raving about him/extremely pleased. He has done my makeup for other events and is always on time, fun to chat with and most of all does an amazing job. I️ would highly remorecommend Branden to do your makeup for any occasion!
I had the pleasure of seeing Allison grow from the beginning of her career. Going to her for a few years now, and I couldn't be happier! I've always been nervous to get my hair done and not trusting my hair stylist. Now, I only trust Allison to do my hair! If you get nervous about who does your hair then Allison is the girl for you! Everyone always asks me who does my hair, I feel like a walking model for her work. I ended up referring a few of my friends to her and they were beyond happy with their results every time. She listens to what you want and she incorporates your ideas with her professional and honest opinion. She always amazes me. She has a true art and passion for doing hair and makeup, it shows every time I have her do it. If you want a trusted , well educated, passionate and friendly hair/makeup stylist Allison is your girl! Definitley amazing at doing weddings as well. If you need anything done for prom, weddings or just because I highly recommend! :) Below are some pictures of Allison's work on my hair ! <3
Glades did my makeup for my wedding and she was amazing. Her prices are reasonable and she was prompt. I highly recommend Glades!
Angel is a phenomenal makeup artist. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is seeking a professional for any occasion. She offered some great makeup tips/advice that were very helpful, and I can’t wait to try them myself. I was very pleased with my results, and would definitely use her services again
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!
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!
Des did my make up (the bride), my bridal party, my mother, and my now wife's make up for our wedding day. She offered to do a trial for all of us the day of my shower as well. We all loved how easy she is to work with, she listens, and is open to feedback. My make up lasted through out the day and night. I even had an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception, and I sweat a lot. I was very pleased at how long it lasted and how beautiful I looked during the ceremony. I would recommend Des to any bride! I also will use Des again for any time I need make up done. She is professional, timely, easy to talk to, quality make up, amazing talent, and great pricing.
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.
Very professional! On time and her designs are beautiful, the kids love it!
