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!!

Tasha was one of the bridal makeup artists that my sister had a trial with. My sister loved the hair and the way Tasha plumped up her lips. Tasha drove to my sister, brought in all the equipment and even stayed late to ensure that we had an opportunity to see the finished product. Overall it was a very pleasant experience. We ended up going with someone who had more experience with Indian skin and hair for the wedding. However, Tasha's work quality in the trial was really good and I just had to leave this review!

I feel so lucky to have been referred to Michelle when planning my wedding!! She is the absolute best makeup artist I have ever worked with, and made everybody stunning on my wedding day. We were thrilled to book her for my sister's wedding as well, where she worked her magic on the bride and 9 bridesmaids with time to spare! She manages to seamlessly move from each person's individual style to the next, and really listens to everybody's requests with perfect results every time! If you're lucky enough to have Michelle there on your wedding day (or any event), you don't have to worry about anything else:)

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!!

Not only is Sharleen an amazing makeup artist but she is also extremely educated on all of her makeup products. As someone who’s constantly dealing with rosacea I tend to be very cautious with the products I use on my face. Sharleen reassured me that all of her Younique products were all natural, plant based and great for all skin types, including those who deal with different skin conditions. With that being said I’m extremely happy I chose to have Sharleen do my makeup for my friends wedding day. The work she did was flawless and lasted all day and night (even through the heat,) without having a single reaction on my face! I would not hesitate to have her do my makeup again in the future. I highly recommend her!

    Robin was awesome! She responded quickly to any questions I had and help me problem solve anything I was on the fence about. She even came to the rescue when my makeup artist backed out. She was quick and her prices were great, she even traveled! I would highly recommend her!! She's the best and easy to get along with.

    When I started my search for a wedding make up artist, I was extremely self conscious to go to anyone because of a lifelong struggle with terrible skin. I've never wanted to have someone "see" my skin without my usual cover up routine, as I struggle with both dry and oily skin and large pores that make me feel uncomfortable to be in public naturally. But Jen changed this for me. Not only did she jump right into my rescue to set up a trial appointment just 3 months before my wedding, but she really made me feel better about my skin and even took the time to educate me about what products I should and shouldn't be using, and what style make up applications will give me the results I am looking for! After the trial, she followed up to see how I felt about it hours after the application and if it was still giving me the results I was looking for! I was blown away that after 8+ hours, my face wasn't getting "shiny" from oily skin and my eyeliner wasn't smudging all over my eye lid, like it does when I do my own make up. It was a dream come true and EXACTLY what I needed for my wedding day! We had some back and forth leading up to the wedding to make sure we were both on the same page of some of the slight changes we were going to make and she was with me every step of the way. Jen and her assistant were prompt on the wedding day and fit right in with my bridal party and family! Once again, making everyone feel comfortable and laughing with us as we got ready for the rest of the day. They were even able to accommodate last minute requests for a couple of family members that changed their mind and wanted to have their make up done (life savers!) last minute! When I walked down the aisle, I had never felt more beautiful and more confident to show off MY skin. And even better, my husband was SO happy, that even with my make up professionally done, he still saw "me" at the end of the aisle - the exact look I wanted on our wedding day :) And once again, not only did my make up last 8+ hours, it lasted twice that amount of time AND through an outdoor photoshoot in the rain at our Venue!!! Amazingggg doesn't even begin to describe the worth of having Jen as my make up artist. Her talent is incomparable and I can't wait to refer her to whomever may need the perfect wedding touch!

    Victoria did my makeup for a graduation consultation and I loved the finished product. She made me feel like a million bucks! I would definitely hire her to do my wedding makeup when the day arrives.

    Melissa is truly an artist and a vital calming force in preparing my face, heart, and mind for my most pivotal professional and personal moments/events such as; Wayfair Founders Award for Leadership, Boston Esplande Moonlight Gala, DIFFA (Designers Foundation for AIDS), and Wayfair Commercials/b-rolls. In addition, I source Melissa's skills and fun-loving attitude for various costume parties and sporting events (natural lashes and rose lips for the Kentucky Derby this year) and complete transformations from my standard "young professional girl next door" look to a timeless icon, specifically Cher, this past Halloween. I sit across from Melissa as she works her magic, while providing me peace, tranquility, and confidence. I direct the B2B Sales Trade Program for the fastest growing online retailer, so I often arrive in Melissa's chair after a 60+ hour work week. Melissa makes this 34 year-old workaholic's skin look 24 again. Most of all, I am truly grateful for Melissa's customer-centric approach. Melissa is more than an extremely talented make-up artist I recommend to friends, colleagues, and family, Melissa is truly a friend. I was recently engaged, and again, Melissa's artistry will be a vital component to my comfort on the most important day of my life. -Lauren Arkema Associate Director B2B Sales Trade Services & Style Director, Wayfair LLC

    As an older woman other makeup artists had me actually looking older with too much makeup. Jacqueline enhanced my eyes naturally and I loved the results. I looked younger without being overdone.
