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.

Sarah was AMAZING! From my trial with her all the way through to my wedding day, Sarah was there to answer my questions and work with me to design the perfect look for me! We tried several looks and Sarah was able to put the trial together with our conversations about how I wanted my makeup to be and she gave me exactly what I imagined! In fact, EVERY member of my bridal party looked gorgeous and so did my mother and mother-in-law. Everyone had different skin and different ideas about what they wanted and Sarah just did it all FLAWLESSLY! More than that, she played a huge role in helping to keep me calm all day. Sarah stayed until I was fully ready to walk out the door attending to whatever I needed. She even crawled on her hands and knees under my dress to help me adjust my garter and strap me into my shoes. Sarah went above and beyond for me from the first time I met her and I cannot thank her enough for everything she did to make my day special. Not only is she an extremely talented makeup artist, but she is a truly genuine and caring person, as well. I cannot wait for my next event where I need to be dolled up because Sarah will certainly be my first call! Thank you, Sarah!!

I had a great time getting to know Rondha while she did my makeup. She was very professional and I had a easy time finding her place of business. Even though I was 20 minutes late due to my hair, she was still very happy to meet me. It was overall a good time getting to know and laughing with her family! And of course I loved my makeup! She gives you options.

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!!

Kat was wonderful to work with. She was very professional, and extremely personable. She was one of the first makeup artists that I truly listened to me and executed my desired look down to a T. She spent an entire hour doing my makeup and making sure that it was perfect, and all for a great price. I highly recommend Kat, and I will be using her for all my upcoming events and makeup needs.

Dany was super responsive from the get go. She answered all my questions on thumbtack and by text before I felt comfortable to choose her to do mine and my mom's makeup for our best friends wedding. With a few inspo photos and ones of ourselves that we sent she knew exactly the look we were going for. Day of she arrived punctually and was warm and friendly from the beginning. She did not waste anytime and jumped straight into one makeup session after the other. She was such a lovely professional to work with. Her experience and skill shined during the session and with the final result! I would definitely 100% recommend her!! My mom and I can't wait for our next occasion so Dany can glam us up again!

Having Cashmeir as your makeup artist is not just a service, it is an experience. Personable, creative, meticulous and a master she takes makeup artistry to a different level. She has the ability of accenting beauty without taking away from the natural beauty of her client. She made me feel and look like a queen. Truly an unforgettable experience.

I had been to at least five makeup artists for my 2/25/11 wedding and was not satisfied until I met Olga. Olga was flexible with the date/time of makeup trial. When she arrived, she was well prepared with a plethora of supplies. I was nervous that she would not be able to handle ethnic hair-but she surprised me. She not only nailed the hairstyle I wanted from a photo I showed, she did it quickly! I booked her on the spot for airbrush makeup and hair for my wedding. I'm sure every bride gets called beautiful on her special day, but the compliments from ALL were nonstop an heartfelt. I am so thankful Olga was part of my special day! Thank you Celine
