Vesta is AMAZING! On my wedding day, she was on time, was very professional and did an excellent job with my makeup. My makeup, as well as my sister and mom's looked gorgeous and perfect throughout the day! I'd work with Vesta again in a second!

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

Tatiana showed up right on time, if not a few min early, for both the trial and the actual wedding day despite the bomb cyclone weather that hit NYC. She made myself, mom, and sis-in-law look and feel absolutely beautiful. She worked with us to each of our requests/tastes/styles and recommended options when we were unsure. None of us wear makeup very much, so she was the perfect balance. Her instagram sold it for me, to see real brides still look like themselves, while also with an added glow and glamour - exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend her and would love to have an occasion to work with her again!

Renee did an excellent job. My hair and makeup was so beautiful, the compliments did not stop coming. I had complete strangers saying how beautiful my makeup especially was. Renee was very professional, I loved the fact that she disinfect her tools before and after using them. Thank you so much for everything, Sherene

I booked Sarah last minute for onsight makeup for a wedding I was in. I explained to her what I wanted and she executed it perfectly! She went out of her way to make things easier for me as I flew in from across the country the night before. I will be using her next time I am in NJ for sure. Highly recommended for any of your makeup needs!

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 first makeup lesson with Kat and it really exceeded my expectations. She is so professional and friendly. The set up was amazing, very organized and clean. She gives detailed instructions and takes her time to explain each step. I literally have zero knowledge in makeup and no experience at all and she has so much patience and nicely corrected me and would show me the right way to do it. My end result was flawless and I'm so happy with it. I already set up my next lesson with her and I can't wait to absorb as much as I can of her knowledge.

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!

I visited NYC for my birthday and was looking for a quality make up artist. I saw Danielle's amazing work and immediately knew she was the artist I wanted. The experience from start to finish was nothing short of amazing! She was extremely professional and helpful in answering my questions, and came directly to my hotel to do my makeup. She was 10 minutes early, and respected my time in a way that is uncommon. Not only does she do amazing work, she is extremely down to earth and a pleasure to talk to. I received compliments all night on my birthday look and it was all thanks to her hard work. Next time I'm in the city, she will be the first one I contact! Book her, you won't regret it!
