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 didn’t think it was possible that it could be better than the trial but it was even better! I loved it so much I didn’t want to wash it off at the end of the night! I’ve seen some pictures from family members and friends and the makeup looks amazing in the photos. I can’t 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 that’s exactly what Vesta did and I can’t thank her enough!! Thank you so much for everything, you definitely have magic hands….

I hired magical teamwork for my son's first birthday party on 9/4. They were great! Easy to work with and very talented! They make balloons for the kids that aren't your usual balloons..they are far far better! The face painting and costume characters are also really awesome! So many of our guests requested their contact information! I'll be hiring them again no doubt. - Lucretia

Sarah's work is exceptional and flawless, which were the commentaries that resulted from my look at my brother's wedding. She is professional,timely and organized. Sarah has been doing my hair (weaves: sew-in and wigs, braids) and makeup for the past 3 years in regards to all major events in my life. I have recommended colleagues, family members,and friends to her just by the look of her final masterpiece, which speaks for itself. She is a wonderful and talented makeup artists, who is also personable, accommodating, and pleasant to be around.

Mallory is the best. I've had my makeup done a number of times by makeup artists, some good and some bad, but none ever this awesome. I mean it, the whole experience from start to finish was superb. Mallory really knew what she was doing and her prices are fair. She accommodated my changing schedule and never made me feel like I was a pain in the butt. She was on time and made my experience very relaxing. The next special event I have, she is the one I will be calling first. Thanks Mallory!

Rondha did an amazing job with my make up for my prom. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable and made sure that I was comfortable with how she was doing my make up every step of the way. I would highly recommend others to book Rondha as a makeup artist.

I truly had an awesome experience with my makeup artist. She was on time, friendly and patient with me even though I was under a lot of stress for my wedding. When I didn't know the style of makeup I wanted, she told me to relax and that I was going to be a beautiful bride. I trusted her and believe me, she did an awesome job. The details of the makeup was immaculate. My makeup stayed perfect all day and had no worries. She made me look and feel so gorgeous as well as my bridesmaids and maid of honor on my special day. For that I am truly grateful that I chose her as my makeup artist. She is extremely talented and I highly recommend her.

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 was given the name of these ladies as a referral from our makeup artist and oh man were they incredible!! They did the hair of 8 girls the morning of my wedding, and everyone looked soooo beautiful! - They were so personable and were so fun to hang out with the morning of the wedding. They did incredible work on our hair - and i was so worried my curls were going to go flat (as they usually do whenever my hair is done) and they held PERFECTLY well into the next day. My bridal party still talks about how wonderful they were, and even went as far as to helping my guys pin flowers to their jackets since they weren't sure how to. They were so much fun and everything looked so great! thank you sooo much for your help and love!! Trish & Ari Palomino

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!

Danielle is extremely professional and a master at her craft! She is the only makeup artist I go to! I continue recommending her to everyone and anyone! I have yet to find someone as talented as she is ! She let's you know what she thinks might work best for your complexion and/or skin! She always uses high quality makeup and doesn't hesitate to let you know what products she uses! She does a great job at listening to exactly what you want! I will continue looking forward to using her for any future events and I will continue to recommend her! You will not be disappointed!

I got the exact look I was going for! Many makeup artists love to put their own spin on a look or poorly match your foundation, and the end result is not what you had hoped. Beauty-Full ladies gave me the natural bridal look & glow I was hoping for & Her professionalism was outstanding! Definitely my go to makeup artist going forward!

Couldn't have picked a better makeup artist for my wedding than Jomora, she is amazing!!! So sweet & funny - I knew immediately after my trial that I wanted her for my big day. If you're looking for someone to contour your entire face and make you look like a different person this is not the vendor for you. I told Jomora I wanted nude lips, smokey eyes and lots of lashes- she nailed it! I still looked like myself and the makeup lasted from 10am until after mid night. She did makeup & lashes for the bride, mother of bride, & 7 bridesmaids in 3 hours! She is the best!!!!
