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!
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.
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 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
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
Angel is super talented and quick. She not only did my make up but over 10 other models. We all looked fabulous thanks to her.
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.
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!
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!
Lisa does an outstanding job of making you look gorgeous, but natural! She really takes her time as an artist to accentuate your best features, and make you look your best! What a talented make-up artist! I highly recommend her services!
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! :)
Janet was amazing to work with! She was patient and focused on her work to make sure we all looked stunning. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!
My wedding was November 28th 2015. She made me look amazing . So many people complemented on my make up and said how amazing I looked. she had a time to get me out and made it work.
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!
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!
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.
