Hi everyone! I must say that I was very impressed with Ms. K. Artisme face painting designs. She was wonderful and believe me my twin girls were besides themselves. They loved the makeup and I enjoyed watching them and the other kids at their birthday party. I planned on using her during my Halloween batch. You will not be disappointed!

WOW!!! We hired Ashley as a last minute replacement for a magazine cover shoot that we were creating over the Labor Day Weekend. It was meant to be!!! We went into a panic when our makeup artist backed out - there was no need. She eased our tensions, her bubbly personality and professionalism combined with serious skills helped to create one of the best photo shoots we have ever participated in. EVERYONE wanted her card - models, hair, designers!!! The most experienced model didn't take her makeup off before leaving - I asked her why - she said she had never had anyone do her makeup as good as it was and she wanted to enjoy it!!! Thanks Ash!!! We will see you again! Bill & Kris

Stephanie has done my makeup for three different photo shoots, and I was thoroughly impressed each time. Stephanie is always pleasant, friendly, and professional. She offers flexible scheduling and is quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Her quality of work is also impeccable. She has done natural makeup, as well as special effects makeup, for me beautifully. Lastly, she keeps her makeup brushes clean and maintains good hygiene by constantly sanitizing her work area. Honestly, I wouldn't trust any other makeup artist.

Kat was the most amazing makeup that truly saved my most special day! When my original makeup artist bailed on me 4 days before my wedding, Kat swooped in like a superhero sent from above & immediately my stressed out mind at ease. She was extremely professional, an excellent communicator & beyond friendly (super sweet)! She was competitively priced, on time & she does phenomenal work! I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a great artist & a great experience!! Thank you Kat!!

The Royal Slay Makeup artist was extremely accommodating. I am a person that does not wear makeup. I have sensitive skin. She tested my skin to be sure there were no allergic reactions. She also listened to my pet-peeves about former experiences with other makeup artist. The makeup did not looked caked on. It looked natural. I was pleased. The Royal Slay Makeup artist is knowledgeable about her craft and her product. She arrived earlier than the appointed time on my wedding day. I cried throughout the majority of my wedding ceremony and my makeup never ran or smeared. I would and have recommended her services to anyone for any occasion.

Emily is very professional, has great punctuality, knows her makeup, and has a great personality as well and is very easy going which is very calming to a bride. She did the makeup for my wife and I on our wedding day in two separate locations. and she far exceeded what we ever thought we'd look like. We would highly recommend Emily to anyone. If we ever need a makeup artist in the future we will be hiring Emily for her excellent services again.

I had the privilege of having Mariel as my makeup artist. She was very professional and efficient. I was absolutely happy with her work. FLAWLESS! Many compliments 😇. I flew in from the bay area to attend a wedding in Philly. I put my full confidence in Mariel. I highly recommend her. I actually would fly in for a few hours just for Mariel to do my makeup again.

I have never had my makeup done professionally before until my cousin's Bachelorette party... I was not really big into makeup but Yanelsi did my makeup and totally changed my mind forever ... She made me feel so Gorgeous...I never realized how much makeup could make me look an feel so differently about myself... I felt like a Model .. Yanelsi is an Amazing and Beautiful person inside and out... I Will never ever go to anyone else but Yanelsi to go get my makeup done for special occasions and now she started doing makeup workshops where she actually teaches u to do ur own makeup... I went to her first Makeup workshop and was totally blown away from all the info she gives u about ur skin and how she explains how to apply ur makeup... She is so calm and patient going around to each perrson and showing them exactly what to do.. She also does makeup for Weddings, Proms, special occasions or even if u just want to look good on a night out... She did my cousin's makeup for her Wedding and my cousin looked absolutely stunning ... Flawless Makeup by Yanelsi is my forever go to Makeup Artist

I hired Renee for my wedding and bridal shower. She did an AMAZING job! She was everything I was looking for. People are still talking about how good I looked. I literally thank God that I found her. I will most definitely be working with Renee again. Her contact information will forever live in my phone. I had a really hard time finding a makeup artist who serviced both Ethnic and Caucasian skin tones. Though her pictures on her website are mostly Caucasian her background is lovely. Renee was trained in NYC, has previously worked NY fashion week, and has done work for Essense magazine. She isn't like the current MUAs who literally cake the makeup on. I love Renee because she enhanced the features I already had. Her style was perfect for me, my girls, and family. My bridesmaids raved about her. Renee ensured she had every color for our skin tones. She even purchased a variety of different pallets to make sure the day was everything I dreamed of. I love working with Renee. She is one of the nicest ladies I have ever met. Her patience is unreal. She allowed me to be me high maintenance and never batted an eye. Although I hired her for her serviced she in the end became a friend. I really do look forward to connecting with her again. She helped make my wedding day magical.

I loved this girl! She is very talented. I went to her twice for my makeup and I am now a regular with waxing. One of our mutual friends recommended her to me when I was attending my cousins wedding. I received so many compliments that day! I also loved it and I'm one that NEVER wears makeup and very picky when I have to for an event. The second time I already knew I would be giving her a call for my mothers 50th black and white birthday bash. Once again a hit. I wanted a smokey eye yet not too gothic and she nailed it. I just wish I was into makeup more instead of just events so I could go to her more! At this time is when I also received underarm, full legs and Brazilian waxing for the party. Her prices are amazing for her work. They are literally half of what u would pay at a spa. So glad you FINALLY decided to go online! Thanks Briana !

Erica is professional, friendly, and very talented. When she did my makeup it was on point and made me look glamorous. She also did body painting on me and had the most beautiful ideas. It was fun being turned into art. I would highly recommend her for bridal makep, photo shoots, special effects, body painting, or any of your creative needs. She's multi talented in all areas.
