Jasmine was great! I never had airbrush makeup before and I was in awe at how it turned out! She is my new makeup artist for sure and her price is reasonable!

If you are reading this review to decide weather or not to book Event Hair &Makeup you should stop reading now and go book them before someone else does! I truly could not have been more pleased with the service we received. Tanya was the first vender to respond to my request for on location hair and make up quotes. Her rates were on the low end for what we were asking for. (This scared me a bit because you often get what you pay for.) She promptly returned my call when I decided to try out her services. When discussing details for a trail hair and makeup session, I discovered she was nearly 2 hours away from my home and yet she did not hesitate to accommodate us. She called to confirm time and location the day before the trail session and arrived on schedule. She was prepared and professional as she listened to what "Becca" (the bride) was envisioning for her look. We quickly became confident in her skills. Becca LOVED the look Tanya created and told me later she felt beautiful. Even after the long drive and time she had already spent on Becca, Tanya agreed to also give me a hair cut to update my look. The day before the wedding again, Tanya called to confirm the time and location. On the day of the wedding when we arrived at the venue Tanya and her assistant Nellie were already there and set up ready to start. They both worked for hours on hair for the bride,maid of honor,bridesmaid,mother of the bride, and mother of the groom. Also, without any complaint they did hair for the brides sister-in-law as a least minute add on. They did undos, long curls, braids,half up half down and even added hair acsessories. We were ALL very pleased with the results! Tanya did all the makeup and her skills are amazing. I need to mention here that the bride is a redhead with very pale skin tone and one of the bridesmaids was Asian with carmel skin tone, and I have old lady skin. Tanya was able to flawlessly match and blend the right foundation to each of our very different skin tones and the results looked so natural. As a make up artist Tanya treated each face as an individual canvas and give us fresh glamour without caking on the makeup. We again were ALL beyond pleased with the results. If the skills, great price and professionalism that Event hair and Makeup team brings to an event is not enough, Tanya's personality was always light and fun and had a way of making us relax, enjoy and forget about the stress of the wedding ceremony. In my opinion, Event Hair and Makeup demonstrated professionalism and outstanding skills . Tanya is an amazing makeup artist and Tanya and Nellie are both gifted in achieving a wide range of hair styles. I will not hesitate to book them again for our next event. I feel confident in recommending them.

Briana did the makeup for myself, my bridal party, my mom & she even had time to do the makeup for my cousin that was not in the wedding. I absolutely love Briana from the 1st time I met her which was during the makeup trial. She wanted to know what I wanted, what I liked & what I didn't like. I even changed my mind on what I wanted after the trial & she had no problem adjusting to what I wanted done differently. The bridesmaids makeup was fabulous! No touch ups were need through out the night; that's how great the makeup was done. My makeup was also flawless. I loved it so much that I did not want to take it off at the end of the night. Overall, Briana is a great makeup artist. She's professional, she is an expert in her field & she is just a great person in general. I highly recommend Briana & will be contacting her again in the future.

I highly recommend using Stephanie for any occasion! She is very professional and very talented. Her prices are very reasonable compared to other makeup artists I researched. She is also very responsive and easy to communicate with. We communicated via text and she always responded in a timely manner, even if I reached out several times a week. After having my makeup trial with her, I immediately hired her for my wedding. A lot of stress comes with planning a wedding but makeup was something I never had to stress about. I had a few questions about different products and different makeup styles. Stephanie is very knowledgeable and gave me trustworthy advice. She really listened to all my wants/concerns and my makeup came out perfect! It is also very evident that she is passionate about what she does. My mom, my aunt, my four bridesmaids and I all had our makeup done by Stephanie for my wedding. Everyone has completely different tastes when it comes to makeup. I told Stephanie what guidelines I wanted her to follow for my bridesmaids. She was able to accommodate each bridesmaid’s style while sticking to my guidelines. Everyone was so happy with their makeup, my mom even cried when she saw herself in the mirror. (FYI - my mom’s makeup did NOT run when she cried!) Everyone’s makeup also stayed on the entire night, even after the wedding was long over. She was very punctional the morning of my wedding as well. She came early to set everything up so the setup time did not take away from the time she had to do anyone’s makeup. I don’t have anything bad to say and wouldn’t change a thing!

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.

Juleigh is by far one of the best makeup artists I've worked with. She was responsive, prompt and did a flawless job. The venue was a challenge to work with and at for vendors who haven't been there but she nailed it. The bride looked GORGEOUS and was thrilled!

Larissa beyond exceeds expectations of what you think you will get when you hire a makeup artist. She is so sweet, fun loving, and knowledgeable about every aspect of your glam, and she will make you feel comfortable and beautiful from the start. My makeup lasted the entire day even through CRAZY sweating from dancing the night away, and to this day people are still complimenting how amazing my makeup looked that day. The best though, was how clean she was! With so many people in the industry today uneducated about proper techniques, it is a breath of fresh air to know I was in good hands! I would highly recommend Larissa to anyone who needs that show stopping glam for their big day!

While attempting to acquire makeup services for my upcoming wedding, Jennifer was extremely professional and understanding of my needs. She set up a trial within a quick amount of time and was very responsive to my needs. She was also very easy to talk to and felt like I knew her previously. She worked quickly and efficiently and I was extremely pleased with the results! I cannot wait to see my bridal party all made up under Jennifer Lynne's care, she is truly magnificent as a makeup artist!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
