She exceeded our expectations. We hired her for our daughters fourth birthday party. There weren't a lot of kids, but she sat by herself and let the kids come to her. My daughter is still using makeup brushes and "pretending" to paint faces like she had at her birthday party. I will DEFINITELY recommend her AND hire her in the future.

Very first time getting my makeup done and I can honestly say I love it!! My makeup artist Meagan was very professional and easy to talk to. She made me feel very comfortable and informed me about the products she uses. I gave her an idea of what I wanted and she did exactly that! I definitely recommend her to everyone! I received so many wonderful compliments on my makeup. She's awesome and I will be returning! Thanks!

I had Sarah Ordo do the makeup for my wedding, not only was she accommodating to my want of a natural look, but she made me look absolutely beautiful! The products she used were great and she even taught me some new tricks. She explained her process and was very knowledgable about the products she used. My makeup lasted through multiple tears and many laughs and lasted until the next morning!! Sarah was fabulous to work with and fit in well with my group of girls. She made my day fantastic and made me feel more beautiful than I have ever felt before. I would highly recommend Sarah Ordo for any of your beauty needs, she truly is a makeup artist and you can see the love and passion she has for it while she works with you.

I had my makeup done by Anoosh for my engagement pictures. I was super happy with how the look turned out! In person and in the pictures the makeup looked amazing! She listened to my ideas for the look and showed me different color swatches to help determine what would look best. Anoosh really knows her stuff. She was able to make me look fantastic without caking on too much makeup. I really like makeup so it was fun to get to ask her questions about different products she used. She is professional and very friendly, and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire experience. I am happy I have her booked to do makeup for my wedding at the end of June.

I work with Michelle one weekend each month. She does hair and makeup for all of our boudoir clients. She is hands down, the best MUA I've ever worked with. You're in great hands with her!

David Ross was amazing with the Joker makeup he did for me for my work. He was very friendly and made sure I like the makeup, as well as working to avoid my eyes which are very sensitive to the touch with makeup. An amazing artist! I received countless compliments while the makeup was on.

I have been getting my long, thick hair cut and styled by Rosie for almost 20 years. It's not easy to deal with thick hair. She has always done a great job! Up-dos, prom, weddings, and special occasion hair and makeup, she's does them all very well!

My face looked flawless! Stephanie is a wonderful makeup artist, who is understanding, kind, and professional. She worked with me to find the perfect look. She listens to want YOU want and is eager to help create the look you want. I was excited to give Stephanie carte blanche, and she did not disappoint! I especially loved the false eyelashes. She has a wonderful eye for color. I felt at ease knowing my face was in the hands of Stephanie. When she finished with me I felt so beautiful and everyone loved my flawless makeup. It was natural but gorgeous. I greatly recommend her services. I felt flawless, fabulous and most importantly, comfortable wearing it! Linda

I have been a client of Russ's for the past 3 years and I couldn't be happier with all of the services he provides. He is my absolute go-to for professional makeup application whenever I have a special event to attend and he is just as talented at giving me makeup application lessons. Russ teaches in such a way that I never feel overwhelmed, and he always makes sure that I am comfortable applying each technique he's taught me before I leave. I absolutely LOVE my eyelash extensions that he put on me. They are so easy to maintain and the compliments I receive on them alone are worth the time and cost. I also get my brows shaped by him as well as go to him for my spray tans. Every service he offers is executed to perfection and performed in the most professional manner all the while being extremely affordable. Russ is a complete beauty expert and he never fails to make me feel amazing inside and out everytime I leave his studio.
