I was hesitant to hire a makeup artist for a full day of photo sessions without meeting her first, but it turns out my anxiety was completely unnecessary! Chelsea did a phenomenal job on every single client, including one who does hair and makeup professionally herself and couldn't stop talking about how much she loved her hair and makeup. We will definitely look forward to using her again!

Chelsea did an amazing job with my wedding hair and makeup, Her assistant did my hair and I couldn't be happier! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a hair and makeup artist. Her rates are also very reasonable, especially for all that's included. I would definitely hire her again when I'm in need of hair and makeup services

Kerrin was so lovely to work with! From our initial communication to my wedding day, she was very easy to get in touch with and always made sure I was happy and satisfied. My bridesmaids and I had a great experience, and felt beautiful! Kerrin listened to what each person wanted their makeup to look like and easily made adjustments. After researching for wedding makeup artists, Kerrin was the best value hands down, without any sacrifice of quality or experience :)

I've worked with Christina many times and each time she has been absolutely wonderful to work with! She has the skill to do a wide variety of looks and is always able to capture exactly what I'm envisioning. She has a great eye for knowing what kind of makeup will look good on each person, and knows how to play up your best features. I always know that I can rely on her to be at a job early and to try to fit me in for last minute jobs. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist who's quick, reliable, and has consistently beautiful work!

Christina is not only wonderful at doing makeup but also skincare + waxing as well. (Don't believe me? Check her out yourself on YouTube.) She is a perfectionist but yet so balanced at explaining exactly how and what she is doing! Every time we get together she impresses me more and more! She gets you feeling and looking your best. Awesome energy, awesome experience!

Jamie did makeup and hair for my wedding! She was lovely and kind, patient and friendly. I don't wear much makeup regularly, so I wanted a bright and natural look. She listened to all of my concerns and did a wonderful job. She also makes her own makeup line, which was very good on my skin. I fell asleep without washing my face and there were no breakouts! Even in the 95 degree heat and an outdoor wedding, her hair and makeup held up wonderfully :) If you want a great listener and professional artist, Jamie is the one.

Skull Sugar Cosmetics....I have tried so many different brands of makeup and have not been satisfied. Upon my first use of Skull Sugar Cosmetics I fell in love. I have changed my entire makeup line. The loose foundation glides on as if air brushed long lasting and seamless coverage. The eye liner and eye shadows colors are stunning and easy to apply. I'm telling all my friends and family to switch!!

Jamie was an absolute dream to work with. Her bridal team arrived early and finished the four of us in a surprisingly short amount of time. Atoya & Lindsay did the most amazing hair and makeup for each of us that lasted beautifully for the entire evening. I cannot recommend them highly enough ! Thank you, Jamie, Atoya & Lindsay ! ! ! !

I meet Cedar at her home for a pre wedding trial for both hair and make-up. I definitely recommend doing a pre trial as we found out what exactly we needed to keep my make-up and hair in place. On my wedding day Cedar was early and got me ready right on time.Cedar was so sweet and loving to both my self and family. She even went out of her way to get my lil ones hair done. I thank her from the bottom of my heart and I definitely recommend Cedar for any occasion.

A month before my wedding she was able to squeeze me in for a make up trail and able to do my make up on my wedding day (she did 3 weddings that day!). She is so sweet and really talented. She seriously made me feel so beautiful, in fact I don't remember feeling that beautiful before. I adore her so much!

Shawna is the artist who did my bridal hair and makeup for my wedding. Shawna was a consummate professional from the start of the process through my last touch up and I would give her 10 stars if I could. She is highly skilled and crafted the perfect hair and makeup combination for the wedding. In fact, it felt like she knew what I wanted/needed better than I did! The hair and makeup presented beautifully in the pictures and I would not have changed a thing. Shawna was patient, kind, and helped keep the morning before my wedding very calm. It was like having a friend with amazing skills do my hair and makeup! If you are looking for someone to make you look like the best version of yourself on your wedding day, you should book Shawna or a member of the Lux team!

Tired of the drugstore face makeup I was so accustomed to I decided it was time for a change. Then, Nanielle introduced me to Motives. First, she provided me with a color blending appointment. During my appointment she took the time to explain the products she was using and what they could do for my skin. She then helped me determine which colors worked best with my skin tone. Nanielle explained and demonstrated how to apply the foundation and powder, along with the setting spray. The results have been amazing! My skin looks completely natural and feels incredibly soft. All while feeling like I have nothing on my face. I highly recommend Nanielle and Motives makeup!!!

Kasienka was totally awesome!! She did my bridal make up and did excellent on both the trial and the day-of makeup. She’s super sweet and punctual and she knows pretty much everything about make up. She came fully prepared and even had a full beauty package for me for the week of the wedding. It was fantastic!! But the best part was when she saved my hair on my wedding day. After two hours my hair was falling out from a professional hair appointment but she went to the store and bought my bobby pins and raced to my venue with tons of hairspray. It took her 20 minutes to make my hair look magazine ready and even better than before. This lady knows what she’s doing, I suggest tipping her big.

Kosar did my wedding day make-up. We did a trial first at my house to determine the look I wanted, and then she did my make-up at my wedding venue the day-of. She has a lot of great make-up she selects from, but also since I buy Mac makeup we were able to use some of mine as well. I prefer a natural look and took comfort knowing my favorite lipstick and a few of the colors I normally wear, I'd have on for my wedding day. Kosar is a pro, she knows how to contour beautifully. She also knows how to use the right amount so your look is elegant in person and also gives allows you to look great for the camera. She did a great job listening to what I wanted. She also understood the timing required to get make-up completed on your wedding day, such that I could relax for my hair and then the make-up. My eye make-up and all around look was stunning and I was so pleased to have her there helping me on my big day!

Jen Brown has been my make-up artist and esthetician for years. She did all of the make-up for my wedding party and myself and we could not have been happier. She is fun and upbeat to work with and really listens to the needs of her clients. I would absolutely recommend Jen for any of her services!
