In my search for my MUA I came across Vesta. When I saw her portfolio she had models of different ethnicities so you were really able to tell that she can work with diverse types of facial features and knew exactly how to accentuate them. When I contacted Vesta for a trial she got back to me right away and gave me the option of getting my trial done at her place or mine. Options are always a great convenience. When I had my trial with Vesta she was very nice, fun to talk to and the makeup was amazing. She understood my vision and listened to what I was looking for and did exactly what I wanted. On the wedding day, she came to Queens and she was awesome. She got there on time and got started right away. There were a total of 7 of us, 6 bridesmaids and myself, the bride. She worked diligently and made sure each one of the girls, including me, was perfect for the day. She was really great with time management and she worked very efficiently. She really listened to each girl to find out what they liked but she made it that much better than any of us imagined. My make-up on the day of was flawless. I didnt think it was possible that it could be better than the trial but it was even better! I loved it so much I didnt want to wash it off at the end of the night! Ive seen some pictures from family members and friends and the makeup looks amazing in the photos. I cant wait to see the photos taken by our photographer. Vesta is a makeup artist who can enhance your natural beauty and create the perfect look. She can transform the ordinary, into the extraordinary and beyond. Whether you need makeup for a wedding or a special event, or maybe just the perfect photo, you can count on Vesta for flawless beauty. I wanted to look and feel beautiful on my wedding day and thats exactly what Vesta did and I cant thank her enough!! Thank you so much for everything, you definitely have magic hands .Nov 30, 2012Verified

I planned a Marriage Celebration for my daughter via long distance and based my decision to use Vesta on online reviews - when you plan something like this long distance, internet usage becomes a necessity. What a wonderful experience! She was so much more than I expected. I explained our visions for what each of us wanted and gave her as much detail about ourselves as I thought would help. As soon as we met on the day of the event, I immediately felt that we were in good hands. My daughter wanted a hollywood glamour Marilyn Monroe look, while I wanted more of an Indian wedding look and she gave us exactly what we requested. She eased my daughter's mind regarding the airbrush technique, which I just loved! Our affair lasted 24 hours, from the moment of her last brush stroke until we finally went to bed. Through all those hours of rushing about, photography, dancing, sweating, eating, drinking, even smoking, our makeup remained perfect without even a reapplication of lipstick! Her experience is top shelf New York City, celebrities - and yet, she is so low key and humble about it all, so sweet and relatable. I feel that we got a tremendous value for what I consider a very reasonable price.May 8, 2012VerifiedMakeup by Vesta's reply
Raquel, was such a beautiful person in and out. We decided to go for the glamor look for her, mother of the bride, and of course Christina, the bride. She was so inspiring and turned out so beautiful for Christina's big day. I loved her family, all of them very so respectful and caring to one another and me as their vendor. I felt so much part of their day and left with such a great memory. Wish all the best Raquel!

Vesta did my Bengali wedding hair and make up. She is very responsive to messages, prompt on time, and did a marvelous job with hair and make up. She also helped to trouble shoot some of last minute jewelry set up, and even put make up on my mommy (which was not included in price). Totally loved her work and highly recommend her!Dec 2, 2019VerifiedMakeup by Vesta's reply
Sweet Sharilnee, Thank you for having me to be part of your day. You and I both had so much fun to get you ready for the ceremony. You looked so beautiful and classy and I loved the natural and clean makeup style you chose to go for. I also had such a respect for your mom having so much kindness and humility. Wish you and your husband all the blessings.
