She's such an amazing artist , she did my makeup for prom and it was outstanding. I was getting complements the whole night. She also was flexible with me when things didn't go as planned. Will be booking her for future events.

Sedacia's personality from start to finish was all you could hope for when planning an event and wanting to look and feel good. She encouraged me in many ways based on the information I gave to her about myself. She made me ultimately learn to love my image. We all have our insecurities but her everyday tips and tricks made me feel confident. She's the best, take her advice. From hair to makeup to how to dress for the occasion, whether it be work or play.

My niece was going for a natural look for her prom and she was very happy with her makeup. She was beautiful! Her parents were also very happy with her look and Sedacia's service. I was happy that I chose her as the make up artist.

For my 30th birthday, I booked a Full Face Application w/Lash session with the AMAZING Alicia!!! Within minutes of the session I knew I had made the right choice. Alicia was very calming and confident in her work. She made sure that I was satisfied throughout the entire process, which made me very comfortable. When it was time for the reveal I could not believe what I saw in the mirror. I was SPEECHLESS!!! I never felt so BEAUTIFUL!! I almost didn't recognize myself. Alicia is a talented makeup artist who is truly passionate about enhancing one's natural beauty. I cannot wait until my next festive event to book her again. Thank you for making my 30th birthday a night to remember!!!

Alicia was a member of my Celebrity Glam Squad in November. She showed up on set completely prepared with a professional makeup light, makeup chair, and makeup for all skin tones. She was so nice and very professional. I quickly realized that she was an extremely skilled artist, so I asked her to do makeup for legendary artists. Her work was flawless!! She took her time and everyone looked amazing! She is now one of the official Celebrity Makeup Artists for the Artist Music Guild of North Carolina. Amazing Artist!!

Ahh!! Where do I begin, Shajarazade is absolutely amazing at what she does. I recently hired her to be my makeup artist for my May wedding. So far we have only done a trial run and I'm already floored. Her technic, knowledge, and passion are just a few reasons why I have chosen her to do my makeup for my special day! Ladies, if you are looking for a fun makeup artist who knows how to crack some jokes to kill the nerves while doing an above and beyond job, this is your girl! I specifically was looking for a unique, contouring, bridal glow. She studied the pictures I sent her and nailed it her very first application! I'm so happy I've found someone who meets my high standards of makeup artistry and is someone I can trust!! I can't wait to see what she does for the bridal shoot and the wedding!!!!!!

I needed to book a makeup artist for my niece's sweet sixteen party. Even though I'm in the TV industry, I didn't know any local MUA. So like everyone else in America, I turned to google. I found Thumbtacks website and figured what the heck, let's give it a try. They recommended a few people; Shajarazade's work looked great. I am so happy with my choice. She was polite, punctual, and professional. When she arrived I wasn't at home. She came in setup and immediately began to work. The girls LOVED her work and her energy. Her work is outstanding. I will definitely hire her again.

This woman is all magic! I was in need of a makeup artist with talent at a good price and she was it! She was my fairy god mother on the day of prom because I felt like Cinderella! She came to my house, set up, and worked her magic! I highly recommend Shajarazade to anyone in need of a makeup artist who does good quality makeup for a reasonable price!

Angela and Lydia are amazing! They worked so hard getting eight of us ready for my special day. I wasn't sure how I wanted to do my hair at first, but after showing Lydia two different photos, she combined them to make something beautiful. My makeup looked lovely and stayed all day into the night. I told Angela I wanted my eyes to really pop and that's exactly what she did. I felt amazing all day and it's thanks to these lovely ladies!

Planning my wedding long distance from Chicago to Hilton Head Island had me using online reviews in order to make decisions. After reading reviews for Eye Do, I decided to book their services. Sarah provided hair and makeup applications for my bridesmaids, mom, and myself. Sarah was very professional, timely, easygoing, and the most wonderful person to work with. I have been a bridesmaid in many weddings and Sarah by far surpassed any other who I have seen do bridal party hair and makeup. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and Eye Do. You truly helped make my special day the best day ever! Thank you!

I recommend them to anyone who asks me about who did my hair and makeup for both my engagement photos and my wedding. They come to you so you can get ready for your big day in the comfort of your own home. I really cannot say enough good things about studio bride!

Malaika has provided full-facial makeup services for me on several occasions when I've had to perform/sing on a stage. She has always been efficient, knowledgable, versatile, courteous, and attentive to my needs as the client. During the 5 years that I have utilized her services, I've seen her technique, ideas, and execution improve tremendously. She continues to impress.

Erin is a great makeup artist who takes her job very seriously! From the trial, to my bridal portraits, to the wedding day itself, she was always working to tweak my look to make it absolutely perfect. She came to us on the wedding day and did the make up of the whole bridal party and both mothers. Everyone was happy with the result and had a great time!

Erin did my makeup for both my Bridal shower and wedding and did SUCH an amazing job. I looked flawless on both days and she really gave me that glam feel. She gave me drama but I still looked like myself. She's very down-to-earth and makes you feel relaxed on such a stressful day. Totally would hire her again!

Nicole is professional and truly a delight. She did this creative beat face with colors I would’ve never thought to use on me. Afterwards I felt like I was ready for a photoshoot with VOGUE magazine, lol. She was knowledgeable about makeup products, she valued my opinion, and while applying my makeup, she took time to teach me helpful tips. She is sweet person/ makeup artist. I would definitely go to her again! Thank you Nicole.
