Krista Its by far the best makeup artist there is. She did my makeup for a State Bodybuilding Competition and several other different occasions. She traveled for me and I could not have been more pleased. When I need a make up artist, I will not even consider anyone else. Not only is she an awesome artist but she is one of the kindest people that I know.

Danielle is AMAZING! I have never been able to find a makeup artist who truly made me feel so beautiful. I loved how she also taught me tips and tricks to make everyday makeup application much easier and how to perfect a smokey eye without looking like I got punched in the face. Lol. Danielle took the time to make sure I was getting exactly what I wanted and I did plus more! I recommend this pro!!!!

I was fortunate to have the beautiful Ms. Iris apply my makeup before a Davids Bridal gown showcase and I have never felt more beautiful. I was especially pleased with her application of my eye makeup. I look forward to working with her again!

She is simply AMAZING! Her personality is so sweet and she will make your day even better than it started. I was grateful that her work is just as good as her pictures! I looked and felt beautiful and she honestly gave me the BEST makeup and hair I have ever received from a makeup artist! She has worked for the best and I see why.

Jen was my hair and makeup artist for my October 2014 wedding. I wanted vintage and she totally delivered. She was at my home bright and early at 6am on the morning of the wedding. I was absolutely in love with my total wedding day look that she created and it looks amazing in the pictures, very glamorous, but not unnatural. And my makeup lasted until the party ended at nearly midnight that night, which was incredible! She is also a really cool and laid back person. She responds to emails quickly which is always appreciated when you are planning a wedding. I would definitely hire her again if I had to do it all over!

Maria is so talented and I knew I was in good hands...plus she had me laughing throughout the whole makeup application. I would highly recommend Maria for any special occasion!

Anne is an extremely gifted makeup artist and a true professional- I am so glad I hired her! Anne did my makeup for my wedding as well as my mother and bridesmaids and we were all so thrilled with her work. I felt so beautiful and radiant - most amazing of all, the makeup stayed put the whole wedding night. My photos turned out great! I usually have oily skin and can get quite a shine and in the heat and humidity we experienced that summer night, it was thanks to Anne and her amazing products that my makeup stayed in place and looked fantastic the whole night! She also did four of my bridesmaid's makeup (all different nationalities) and my mother who usually does not wear any make up at all. She was so quick and professional. All of them asked me for her number after so she could help them with their makeup at home afterwards. Anne also had a very calm demeanor which helped me feel calm and collected. I highly, highly recommend Anne - you will be thrilled!!
