Delia did my make up trial for my wedding, and I will be hiring her for the event. She listened to what I wanted and replicated the look I wanted. She was wonderful to work with.

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.

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 :)

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.

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!

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.

I hired Aucilia as the make-up artist for my daughter's prom and I was very pleased with the choice I had made. She was very friendly, professional and informative as to what applications she was applying. She didn't go overboard. I plan on utilizing her services again for future events. My two daughters and I were very pleased with her.

Jacquee and Arlene are so great to work with! Jacquee was so patient, especially with the girls I had with me on my wedding day - I love my girls, but some can be quite picky! I would definitely recommend Jacquee for your wedding day, or any special day. I had two hair & makeup trials with Jacquee and she accommodated very well with me! She drove out to the city and I felt comfortable with her. 5 stars!

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 have had a fantastic experience! She has been very professional the entire time and attentive to what I needed. She would explain to me every single step and tell me about the products she was using. I was having my make up done for my Confirmation so she decided to use some very light colors. She made me look classy and suitable to the occasion. I would definitely call her again whenever I need some professional make up. Two thumbs up for Clark D' Bello make up artistry! :)

Renea did my make-up for my friends wedding. I was very impressed with how she did my make-up. I'm not an eye shadow wearer, but she made it look natural. She also did the bride's make-up and she looked beautiful!!! I would recommend her to everyone I know!!!

Stephanie provided make-up for myself, my sisters and my mother. I couldn’t have been happier with the results, and I know everyone else was equally satisfied. She has a wonderful eye for color, respectfully listens to your requests, and moves throughout the getting-ready period of the day with a calm, collected stress-free attitude. She was on time and ahead of schedule. I would highly recommend her – she’s worth every penny.

I had nothing short of a phenomenal experience with Angelina. She was very educated on all of the make up she used. I liked that she kept me informed on what she was doing and how throughout the entire process, which helped me with how I do my everyday make up now. I was very impressed with her and would definitely recommend her!

Customize to make you sophisticated looking! Training how to make up with your products. Group lesson to teach how to make up I focus on enhancing the clients natural beauty. I want you to look your best, rather than create a new face with make-up. Anyone can apply makeup, but it takes a professional to apply that makeup and bring out your natural characteristics. Because I do teach classes as well, I can explain how and what I am doing as I apply the makeup-so that you can learn to do it yourself! I do the same thing with hair. Anyone can give you a standard haircut or trim, but I can make your locks come to life, enhance your face shape and make you look your best. I can give you not only a new hair cut, but a new look-a new style.
