I was a bridesmaid in my first wedding and had my makeup done by Wicked Makeup along with the rest of the bridesmaids and the bride. I showed the makeup artist a picture of what I wanted and since I rarely wear makeup, I was a little nervous. When she was done, I was so happy, it was exactly what I wanted and didn’t feel heavy like I expected. I would definitely recommend Wicked Makeup to anyone who has a special event or wedding.

Cheryl is very professional makeup artist. She responds to my inquiries even before the day of our appointment. I had flaky skin during my event but she was able to work it around to very flawless glowing skin.

Jessica was great! We needed a makeup artist last minute for my sisters wedding and we were so lucky to have found her. She was reliable and fun to work with!

Valen is was absolutely great for my event. We did a trial run which I would definitely recommend. It helped get both of us on the same page for what I was hoping for and what I would look like with certain styles. At the real event, Valen’s makeup made me feel very beautiful and glamorous with my theme without making me feel like I wasn’t myself and my hair looked great without looking too crunchy or plastic with hairspray. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a hair/makeup artist!

I was looking for a hair and makeup artist for a work gala last month. I really wanted to sport a red carpet look. From the get go, Carolina was prompt at responding to my queries and eager to work with me. She assured me she could accommodate the look I was going for, and definitely delivered. The day of the event, she met me at my sister's house where I was getting ready, and was super professional and helpful even though I was running late. She never rushed me or herself, and talked me through the process as she went along. My sisters and I had a lot of fun talking with her throughout the appointment as well. Once finished, she adjusted any little thing I asked for, and even left me with the little tube of lip gloss she used to reapply as needed throughout my evening. Such a fun and easygoing experience, and the results were out of this world! I am continuing to receive compliments on how I looked to this day! I would definitely recommend this company and use them again. Thanks Carolina!!

I cannot recommend Erin and Laura enough. I hired them to do my wedding makeup and hair for my wedding party. They were very punctual and accommodating, even when I asked for a venue change not long before the date. I showed Laura a few photos of what I wanted and she was able to reproduce the look perfectly. Erin received minimal instructions from me and did a beautiful job with all my bridesmaids. I was warned that non-Asian makeup artists might have trouble working with Asian faces and hair, but these two had no difficulty at all. And for the price, it's a steal.

I found Jackie on Thumbtack and it was my first time using this website to find a vendor. Jackie was wonderful to work with – from coordinating my makeup trial to my wedding day timeline to making a payment, everything was a breeze. She did an incredible job and made my bridesmaids and I look so beautiful. We all had airbrush makeup done which turned out great and lasted throughout the entire day/night. Jackie is very personable and made me feel at ease throughout the entire morning. Jackie did an excellent job of getting all six of us ready on time. She even touched up a few of us before she left which was great. Thank you, Jackie!

Nicole has done a video shoot "regular" makeup look for me and it was wonderful, very natural. As a new business owner my video had to be fun and inviting but I wanted a very neutral look. I also had Nicole do an over the top look for an event that was a masquerade ball. She is artistry in makeup and it was a transforming look to compliment my costume and my character. I have to say Nicole is the whole package in service offerings. She can do anything!

I saw her reviews and immediately wanted her. I told Khushboo that I was in need of a makeup artist for my brother’s graduation. Now, it’s not a normal graduation and many people are showing up fashionable. So I needed a artist who was fast and efficient and Khushboo beat all my expectations. I will definitely hire her again for a second time because she was wonderful!!

I love seeing Justin for makeup! He makes me feel amazing every time I leave. I have had my makeup done with numerous makeup artists and feel like Justins work truly tops all. His talent shows every time I work with him and could not be happier to have found him. Perfectionist with his work, amazing person and now happy to have him as a friend! Xo

Great work ethic! Such a passion for what she does and it shows. Had my makeup done several times by her and it always came out better than what I was picturing. She definitely brings beauty and creativeness to everyone/everything she works on!

I loved my makeup. Great experience. Better than going to Sephora to get your makeup done. She taught me a few things I didn’t know about make up as well. Great person to meet.
