This was my first experience using Thumbtack and was very pleased with the service I received, especially since I needed someone to work with me within 24 hours of my posting. Patricia was highly professional --- responded to the request quickly and then arrived promptly, discussed her approach, and listened to what I had to say --- and delivered beautifully. I requested her services again two days later for another event when a make-up artist bailed out at the last minute. I truly appreciated her ability to create two different make-up styles that were appropriate for the separate events. Her airbrush device conked out but with her techniques, it did not appear to be necessary. She took her time in the make-up application to ensure perfection, yet the session seemed to go by quickly because it was a lot of fun working with her.
I was one of Lisa's first clients and I cannot say enough about how wonderful she was during my wedding! I had one previous makeup trial that I did before my engagement session with a woman that was slightly cheaper than Lisa. I got what I paid for unfortunately. I ended up calling Lisa with tears welling up in my eyes and she instructed me over the phone (as she was driving I might add) how to fix my makeup. Of course after that I booked a trial with her immediately. Luckily my engagement photos turned out good. During my trial, Lisa had wine for me and I was very nervous and stressed about my prior makeup issues. She constantly asked what I liked or didn't like about colors, techniques, looks, etc. She did a great job of listening to what I wanted then using her professional skills to make the look work for my complexion, face, and occasion. At one point I asked for a specific lip color and she told me she would try it on one side and then a color she recommended that was similar but slightly softer....she was right and I went with that lip color. On the day of my wedding, there was some miscommunication on my part (as I was juggling a MILLION things) and I told her the wrong hotel....that was 40 minutes away.....so bad, i know. However, Lisa was literally at my hotel room door in 20 minutes, cool as a cucumber after driving like 140mph. She did a fantastic job! I had a bridesmaid that literally NEVER wears makeup and a bridesmaid that is a makeup whore and tries every trend possible. Lisa was able to accommodate them all and they all loved their makeup, even the girl that never wore make up was ecstatic about her look (she ended up showing her wedding makeup girl the same look for her wedding...her wedding was 4 hours away otherwise she would have booked Lisa). Lisa did a great job of managing time and also accommodated doing my mother's makeup. Lisa made sure I knew how to touch up my makeup throughout the day, however all I needed was some lip touch up before going down the aisle. I should also add I got married at the end of August in Chicago (super humid) but my airbrush stayed beautifully! Since then I have used Lisa multiple times for weddings that I was a guest at and other special occasions and I have loved my make up each time. I am excited to try her spray tans and wished she had that prior to my wedding. Any bride is lucky to have her on their glam squad!
LOVEE LOVE LOVE how Farah did my make-up! I showed her a picture of the look I wanted for a photo-shoot, and she did just what I wanted. My make-up looked flawless! I really recommend her to all the ladies out there! She is super nice, outgoing and very talented in her work.
Laura was great! She showed up on time and did make-up for three of us for my daughters wedding. My make-up looked really great. Not overdone or too dark. My eyes are super crepey and they looked really good. Laura did my make-up at 11 am and it still looked the same at 1:30am when I got home! I highly recommed Laura :)
Awesome artist! I was excited about the opportunity to take a make-up basics course to give my look some polish. The experience with Alpha Dara was phenomenal! Alpha was professional, thoughtful, and extremely talented. She took pride in making me feel beautiful, educating me on the process, and partnering with me to assist in choosing products that would be right for my soft natural goals. I highly recommend and look forward to doing future business!
Jennifer has a gift for teaching makeup application skills and for makeup artistry and I'm so glad to have found her! I've attended 2 classes at her home and walked away from both classes feeling beautiful and with a lot more confidence in my ability to apply contour, highlight, and different types of eyeliners. She teaches on a model, and then guides your practice, even making suggestions as to fun colors to try from her makeup stash. Thanks to Jennifer, I'm enjoying trying different colors and flaming it up a bit. I immediately felt welcome at her in- home classroom. Jennifer has created a warm, friendly environment to learn from her and also your classmates in the group classes. I hoped to learn a lot, and she exceeded my expectations. I look forward to attending more classes and will definitely use her for special events.
My experience with Brandon is flying with stars ! He is the kindest , attentive , knows exactly how to apply make-up on your face to make it radiate from within ! I would recommend him again and again ! He is the best ! PATRICIA
I hired Tori for a makeup lesson to teach me the basic concept of makeup application and how to choose the correct products for my skin type. Tori and I began communicating by email and eventually by text. Both methodsof communication were timely and very professional. She explained everything thoroughly and answered all questions that I threw at her. I was very excited to meet Tori and when I did she was absolutely amazing. She took her time with us she presented different makeup selections, gave us a ton of tips, and explained the makeup process in a way that we could understand. She caters to what the client prefers when it comes to the look they are seeking. Tori is very experienced and knowledgeable about her trade. Immediately following her class she gave us a goodie bag with samples of different products as a token of her appreciation. I will definitely be scheduling another session with Tori. I highly recommend her services. Great experience and wonderful time
Melanie was on-time and professional and a lot of fun to work with. She did a wonderful job for my wedding and the make-up lpoked perfect all day.
I had such an amazing experience with beauty in colors, Leeraz did such a professional job with the make up It was exactly what I wanted to look like , she came right on time and was very sensetive to listen and discuss what I make up I want I highly recommend
I never realized what a difference it can make to have your make-up applied by a professional. Paige did my make-up for my daughters wedding and it was flawless. I never had to touch it up and I loved how I looked in the pictures! I will definitely use her services again and recommend her to my friends. Thank you Paige!
Even though I tried to avoid doing lash extensions for a while because I knew I’d be addicted, it was hard to resist when you have someone like Nisi who makes it so easy to have gorgeous lashes all the time! It doesn’t get much more convenient than being able to get your lashes done at home, and over the last year I’ve come to enjoy Nisi’s company just as much as her work...and I get plenty of compliments on my lashes as proof of the end result! I love cutting a step out of my morning makeup routine and it’s been great to also have a more natural or more dramatic lash look depending on any occasions or traveling I’m doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else in Chicago for my lashes!
I hired Daniela to do our makeup and hair at my wedding. She is always so professional and super easy to work with. She is a real deal and a total package as she does hair and makeup which made my life so easy as you all know how hectic it is to plan a wedding yourself. I really appreciated Daniela for her enthusiasm where she was willing to stay to help out with pictures/posing, fixing my veil and dresses. She goes above and beyond to make sure that you are happy with the work and look & feel stunning as you should on your wedding day!
Shelby has been my personal hair stylist for the past ten years. I always receive numerous compliments on my hair style and color. Shelby customizes my hair style and color to meet the needs of my ability to maintain it! She makes you feel special. I pu the "fate of my hair into her hands!" L know that I always leave her salon looking and feeling fabulous!
Dani came highly recommended by multiple people I know all across the city of Chicago. I was looking for a significantly natural look so I decided to check out her work. I was impressed with what I saw on her page so I reached out and had her do my make up for an event. I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I looked and felt beautiful! 5 out of 5 stars for Dani, her timeliness, professionalism and the quality of her work.
Morgan is an amazing makeup artist! She did a bridal party for my wedding. It was a rockabilly themed wedding. She was professional, listened to what I wanted and never tried to change my mind on anything I wanted to do. Showed her a picture and like a fairy godmother a wave of a magic wand.... She created the makeup in the picture I showed her. That day she make me feel like Cinderella. I would recommend her in a heartbeat! Thank you for making my wedding magical!
Thank you for volunteering to make our girls look and feel fabulous last night ! Hard working, fun, and committed to making a difference. We enjoyed your company and look forward to work with you again!!
Tia has done my makeup several times and each time she out does herself. I’ve seen her work on social media, decided to give her a chance and she hasn’t let me down yet! I never know what look I want to go for and Tia is very patient in helping me create a look. I never feel rushed whenever I’m in her chair and she makes me feel welcomed. She also doesn’t make your face feel heavy/cakey. She’s such a sweetheart
Ariana showed up early which was wonderful because we needed it! She did an excellent job, and all of our makeup lasted the whole night! She was very personable and made us all feel very comfortable during the whole process! Thank you Ariana!
