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

I was taking part in a video shoot for the nonprofit I work for and needed makeup for camera. I have no experience with makeup and Sharon put me at ease. Sharon came through to my hotel and took care of my makeup. She even sent me on my way with some powder and lip balm to apply on set. She was communicative, prompt and professional. If I ever needed a makeup artist again in NYC, I would definitely reach out.

I hired Remi to do my makeup for a wedding I was a part of. She did a phenomenal job! Remi arrived on time for my appointment to go over details for my look, which I appreciated. My face was very elegantly done and had the perfect natural look I was going for. Remi was very personable and made sure I was happy with the results. I definitely will be using her for all my events. I recommend her to all!

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.

I reached out to Clarissa to do my makeup for prom and she was amazing. She travelled to me and arrived on time. I was completely in love with my makeup. She worked quickly but carefully to make everything perfect. I wasn't sure what look I wanted to go for at first but she gave me her recommendation and it turned out to be amazing!! She was able to completely transform me for my prom and I would highly recommend her.

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.

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 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.

Susan did an excellent job with my and my bridal party's makeup. She was really easy to work with and perfectly captured the look I wanted. For the bridesmaids, she did a wonderful job choosing the perfect look for both girls who typically don't wear makeup at all. Such a pleasure. Highly recommend!

Dorothy did my makeup and hair on two occasions.The makeup lasted for whole evening without getting cakey. The Smokey eyes looked stunning. She specializes in making you look naturally beautiful which was a huge relief for me since I don't typically wear much makeup. Highly highly recommend Dorothy as a makeup artist to make you look glammed up.
