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!
Jessica is absolutely a pleasure to work with. She's incredibly friendly and professional. She's a skilled makeup artist and I was so happy with how I looked and felt on my wedding day!!
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 hired Theresa Norvicky to do the bridal party’s makeup for my daughter’s wedding at the Harraseeket June 23, 2018. From the very first contact through email and phone calls, Theresa presented as a true professional. She was very detailed in what she offered for services and was very accommodating to meet our groups specific requests and timeline as well. She kept in contact and was very prompt in returning phone calls or emails on any questions or changes we had. As eye lashes later became a request and the mothers of the bride and groom were added to the list, she immediately added an assistant and changed her arrival time in order to meet the demands and timeline of a 1:00 PM wedding. It was very clear Theresa knew the art of makeup.... and was going to make sure each client got the best results !!! Each and every bridesmaid and mother were very very pleased with their makeover ....and the best part my daughter, the bride was amazed how beautiful they all looked! To let you know how good Theresa is at her work of makeup artistry...... my daughter..... the bride , had no intentions of having her makeup done professionally. Even after the rehearsal at the church, the night before ,... she was still saying , “ I’m doing my own makeup. “ After seeing the makeovers of each bridesmaid the day of the wedding, she was amazed what a beautiful job Theresa had done. Needless to say ....at my daughter’s request... Theresa Norvicky did do my daughter’s makeup as well! She not only was beautiful but radiant!! I highly recommend Theresa for your special occasion makeover. She is a true professional makeup artist who cares about the end results. Thanks Theresa for the finishing touches you performed on my daughter’s wedding day! Jayne Libbey
I was very happy with my experience with Sarah. My makeup was beautiful. Sarah also did the makeup for the members of my bridal party, which included 4 adults and 5 young girls. All were beautiful! In addition to the makeup for the actual day, she provided a trial run, the week before my event. Sarah is very personable, as well as being a talented makeup artist. I had never had my makeup done professionally before, and was a little nervous, but she put me at ease immediately. I would definitely recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their special day.
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!
Gabby was the first person who messaged me in regards of my need for a professional MUA and I've decided to have her being my only one! She was very punctual for the appointment and that's one thing that made me appreciate her even more. As for her work? FLAWLESS! She transformed me into a goddess for my sister's wedding! It was my first time hiring a professional to do my makeup (I'm not a makeup person) but it certainly will not be my last appointment with her. Gabby you are awesome and your work proves it!
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.
Gina was the hair stylist and makeup artist for my wedding. She was extremely thorough but managed her time very well. She was able to complete hair for 2 mothers, 5 bridesmaids, and 1 bride in about 4 hours! Everyone was very pleased with the individualized style Gina choose for them and she was just amazing. She had all of her supplies organized on the table and ready to go right away. I have not a single complaint.
