Really enjoyed working with Delia and Cristina! They make a wedding make-up and hair dream team. Delia's make-up applications left everyone gorgeous and glamorous without being overdone. Even my mother and sister (who never wear makeup) loved their looks. The only difficulty was not having appropriate foundations products for my very, very dark skin in-laws. I had warned Delia, and wish she had come more prepared, but we just used my sister-in-laws own products and it all turned out well. Cristina and her assistant did a fantastic job with hair. Everyone loved their looks on the first try and the curls lasted all night! They were so sweet and calming and the work was done with an hour to spare! Free time that us girls could just relax and sip on a lil wine and enjoy the day - an unexpected joy! Thank you both! Will for sure be using their services again if I need formal hair/makeup.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

It was honestly the best make over I have ever had in my life. I have never taken so many selfies of my face in one day!! The blending technique she used was by far my favorite. I never know how to blend my makeup but she did a phenomenal job.

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! :)

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.
