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.
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.
Jacquee was amazing with make up and hair, the make up looked absolutely flawless. My bridesmaids and I could not have been happier with the make up. Jacquee did my hair and make up and it turned out beautifully, some minor touch ups to the hair but other wise perfect. Some of the other bridesmaids had their hair done by Arlene who works with Jacquee as it was a bigger bridal party and it was pretty disappointing. Arlene couldn't have been a nicer person but I wouldn't recommend her for hair. It was also my fault for not doing a trail run with Arlene as I needed to hire an additional person. Over all experience was good for me, I know the bridal party have a different opinion of the hair.
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
Lauren is by far the most amazing make-up artists I have ever encountered! Everyone in my bridal party (8bridesmaids) and my mom were beyond impressed with her skill, ability to tailor to each face/personality, as well as make everyone comfortable with wearing bridal makeup. Having her be a professional photographer was such a plus! She brought her camera with and was able to show me exactly how I would look in photos so I wasn't hesitant about looking washed out or underwhelming. Price is extremely reasonable, especially for the amount of time she dedicates to making everyone look beautiful. I had an awesome trial as well with my bridesmaids and it was so fun to drink wine and get our makeup done. She also had recommended a stylist who I also booked. I couldn't recommend any one person more than I would recommend Lauren!
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
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!
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.
I call her sweet Dee Dee because she's simply sweet, loving, caring and most of all, she loves The Lord!! She knows exactly what she's doing. Make up is not about making money for her but simply a passion. Great Job!!! Love you Dee Dee

Nicole was great! She was so efficient and professional our make up looked wonderful! We received so many compliments and it turned out great!
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
I've been a professional photographer for 25 years. I've had the chance to work with many make-up artists over the years. It was completely refreshing to find that there are still true professional artists in the field. Lana is one of those true artists. Renee, Chicago, IL
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!
