Introduction: Hello everyone! My business has been open for about 5 years now, I wanted it to be eye catching so people would ask me why I named my business Crippled but Cute Cosmetics and Artistry so here we go. I had a stroke in 2014-15 and landed in a wheelchair for almost 2 years. I still carried myself as if nothing was wrong just an added accessory of a chair. I constantly was told I don't look sick because I kept myself up. So I thought about all the other women that are fighting some sort of illness and thought to myself do we have to look sick to be sick... I found this to be a huge stigma in the world and wanted to make a difference. So the name comeswith empowerment, love encouragement and support. I love what I do because it's our War Paint and that's how we continue to fight whatever illness we face everyday.

Wedding and Event Makeup

Julianna was a balm the entire morning of my wedding. My original makeup artist had to cancel on me two weeks before the wedding date... Needless to say, I was stressed before I even reached out. The very first interaction let me know I was in good hands. Julianna arrived early and hit the ground running. She had 6 faces in total and not only finished early, she still had enough time to do touch-ups to my bridal party (and a few family members that took advantage *eyeroll*) She took criticism and suggestions with grace and complete understanding! That's not a trait I can attribute to other makeup artists I've worked with. ONTOP OF THAT she saved the vibes when my bridal party realized we didn't have a speaker to play music from! (Julianna I promise I'm going to get it back to you even if I have to mail it). If you were wondering if you should book take this as your sign. BOOK HER! You will be in good hands.

Julianna is amazing! She is so kind and thoughtful with every detail in planning and execution. And her work is perfection! An absolute pleasure to work with and a treasure of a human being. So many professionals on thumbtack will do great work - but there is more with Julianna - she is exceptional in her professionalism and kindness towards others. I would hire her again and again. And not just because she was thoughtful enough to bring my 16yo daughter and her friend gifts that helped them keep their makeup together the rest of the day/night. Nor was it because she brought help and did not charge me more - when her prices were comparable to others who charged for 1 person. I don’t know why thumbtack limits me to choosing just 3 qualities - it was too hard to choose because Julianna is exceptional in every way. She is just a blessing! A must hire!

This was my first time getting my make done professionally. I was so happy with the results. My makeup came out perfect and was exactly what I wanted. She has an lot of experience and really uses the right technique based on skin tone and skin type. I will definitely recommend her again and again.

Juliana was AMAZING!! I'm not a true make up person,but my wedding party members are. So I was forced into hiring a makeup artist, and so ELATED that I did. She was on time, extremely flexible, professional, social, and just lovely to work with!! Really happy to have her part of my wedding day. Looking forward to booking her for future events. Words dont describe her quality of work and makeup lasted the entire night and next day if you need it to, even after sweating. Super worth her prices!! Xoxo Juliana thanks so much

I loved loved loved working with Julianna! So happy that I found her! Her work is amazing. She was knowledgeable about her art and which products work best with my skin tone and she made me feel comfortable. My make-up was flawless and not heavy. I will definitely recommend her and use her services again. Truly amazing work!

    My process is simple: 1) I wanna know what are things you love about your features, and what are things you don't. 2) I wanna know how you want to see yourself. 3) I wanna know allergies that you know of. 4) Skincare/skin prep 5) Lastly into Application.
