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!

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 :)

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.

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!

Alpha did an incredible job with my makeup and was very nice and personable. She arrived at my house right on time and wears a smile on her face as wonderful as her makeup. Words cannot begin to describe how lucky and grateful I am to have has her make my special night (prom) perfect. I would give her a million stars out of 5 if I could and I promise you will never go wrong if you hire Alpha.

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!

Marium is a true artist and you can tell just how passionate she is! Not only did she make me look beautiful, she made me feel beautiful as well. She really cares about detail and was sure to ask me what i thought as she was doing my make up. Her work is absolutely beautiful and i was very happy with the final results. Marium worked on me for my bridal shower and when i walked into the room everyone commented on how much they loved my make up. I would highly recommend Marium. When getting make up done, it is important to find someone with great personality, who pays close attention to detail, and listens to what you really want. She is all of that and more. Thank you for making me look and feel beautiful on my bridal shower day. I will cherish the memories forever.

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!

About

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.
