First I would like to start by saying that I am so pleased to have made the decision to hire Ochanya to give me makeup lessons. She is very talented and has so much passion for makeup. Ochanya is very professional and what I loved the most is that she uses proper sanitation to keep everything clean. She is a great teacher. She has patience and is very knowledgeable. She makes sure she gives you the service you want. She makes you look beautiful. I hope that as she continues to grow with her talent that she goes far with her career. She always puts her clients first and she listen to what you want and makes sure she makes you look amazing. I highly recommend Ochanya. I continue taking lessons with her and will definitely recommend her and use her for an occasion I may need. Her professionalism and talent is superb! Ana Santiago

Rondha was phenomenal! She was punctual, super responsive, and professional. She had all the necessary equipment, lights, chairs, and of course, the makeup! She was a breeze to work with, I didn't have to give her much direction and she did exactly what I wanted, and not just for me, but also for my sister and mom. And she gave my mom eyebrows (see pic)! I will definitely be using her again.

Clarissa did my makeup for a night out on the town and she did an amazing job. Even though the lighting in my apt wasn't so great, She nailed the look I was going for and I got so many compliments that night. She was on time and had everything she needed to glam me up. I will definitely keep her on speed dial for my next big outing. Thanks Clarissa you made my night! :-)

I had reached out to Katya prior to hiring her to see if she had experience working on dark skinned clientele. She confirmed that she had, and sent me several examples of her work. I was so happy that I decided to go with Katya! She is a wonderful makeup artist who not only arrived at my home on time, but was fully prepared to execute the look I wanted. She made sure I was happy with my look every step of the way and offered to fix anything I was not satisfied with. I received so many compliments throughout the night and I felt amazing! Best part, my makeup lasted all night! I would definitely hire Katya again for another event, and hopefully my own wedding! Thanks again Katya!!

I had my makeup done, and everyone was asking me who did my makeup. They were in Awww. I told them I had it Professionally done my Jelisa, and her Makeup Studio is located in the Bronx. I was the star of the night. I took the Birthday shine away, which I didn't mean to, but Jelisa made me look like a movie star and I my sister's and I are going to get our makeup done next week. She is awesome and she does it at ease. If I could give her ten stars, she would get it. Thanks again!!

Dany was excellent! I loved having her do my makeup - I don't wear a lot of makeup but Dany was very patient with me and tear ducts! My makeup looked fabulous for my engagement photoshoot in NYC. Honestly, I can not recommend Dany enough! She did a great job! I got compliments on my makeup all night long at my friends wedding!

Stacy was amazing! I’ve neber had my makeup done before and she took the time to explain what she was doing step by step and made sure that I was 110% comfortable with everything on my face. She was also very personable and when talking to her I felt like I had know her for years! I would definitely recommend her for your wedding or any other special event!

I had the pleasure of having Jomora do my makeup for my cousin’s wedding. She was on time, paid attention to detail, extremely professional and kind. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to get their make up done. She was also willing to work with me on pricing given that it was a special event.
