I'm a portrait photographer. I specialize in building self confidence and self esteem through bringing out the best in my clients and showing them they are beautiful just as they are. I recently contacted Marissa, because I've been watching her work on Instagram. I told her what I did and needed a makeup artist that could and attentive to clients insecurities and create makeup looks that are natural that will enhance my clients beauty. I was getting photographed for mothers day and I decided to give her a try at my makeup. I don't come across many non-ethnic makeup artist that can do our makeup right with making our skin look worse. She came that day and I had inspiration photos and told her what I want and don't want. She exceeded my expectations. My skin had a natural glow. I felt confident and beautiful. My photos came out amazing! I highly recommend her

Nicole was the perfect choice for my wedding makeup. She traveled to my home for the pre-trial and helped me choose the best look that would work with my wedding dress. She gave suggestions but also listened to what I wanted. On the day of the event, she was calm and professional. My photographer even commented that Nicole was faster than most other makeup artists she had seen at weddings. Thank you, Nicole!

Nik did an excellent job. We had a short window of time to work with and she stuck with it. She most certainly asked about my preferences and put me at ease. You never know what you're going to get when using a makeup artist for the first time, but I must say that I was very pleased with Nik and will use her again if I am in the San Antonio area. I constantly received compliments on my appearance all night. I was the talk of night and loved every minute of it. Highly recommended!!

Wow! What life savers lol! Let me tell you guys that without these ladies I would've been so lost. As a new bride to be I was really overwhelmed with the many hair options out there....*sigh* I mean, hair up? down? side? WHAT! I had so many other things to plan that this at the time wasn't even a priority. I found Tres Unique Beauty Lounge a few weeks before my wedding date. I was afraid the the last minute planning on my part would be a problem but ToCarra (owner) was very nice, sweet, and most important understanding. There was no speech about the proximity of my wedding date or the inability to secure a wedding day or time with her. She was very flexible and relieved my stress. I went to the pre-trial to secure a look for hair and makeup. The hair/makeup artist she paired me up with Alex was very nice and man! she can work a contour and eye shadow like no other! lol! I did make some changes in between the pre-trial and wedding , they flexed without a problem. They (Alex and Shelby) arrived at the reception site before I even got there and made the tension of the day , at least for that part, disappear. They used quality makeup and were very supportive. My maid of honor that was worked on by Shelby looked absolutely beautiful! She color matched her perfectly, even after the last minute add on I needed for her. Alex definitely gave me a beautiful face for my wedding day. As my now husband said " Your makeup isn't dull or boring, it definitely has character! You are beautiful" .Compliments from everyone at the wedding and I'm looking forward to looking at my wedding pictures to show off the magic she created. Overall, I recommend these ladies to anyone who needs a makeup/hairstylist for any occasion. They are very professional, flexible, dependable and best of all, a comfort to those of us brides to be who need a lil TLC in the process... Thank you ladies, I am truly grateful.

I was overwhelming pleased with Yomakeup! I had a makeup artist cancel at the last minute for my wedding and Jessika saved me! Everyone commented on the whole night how wonderful all of our makeup was done. If I ever have another event or need to have my makeup done she will be my first call. She will also be my recommendation to anyone that asks.

I am a wedding photographer. I have photographed hundreds of weddings in the past 15 years. Because of this I know that cameras will pick up any sort of makeup disaster, badly applied foundation or miss applied lipstick! One thing that I was worried about is the caking eye makeup that is a surefire way to highlight every fine line and wrinkle. Even brides with no visible wrinkles end up with these lines from makeup quit often. Yarie was amazing and my makeup did not cake, my foundation did not slid down my face, leave lines or smudge all night. It was also not over done. I loved it and her. I will recommend her to all of my brides and to anyone else looking for Makeup Artistry!

Codie, was by far the best makeup artist I have ever used! I had a work party to attend and my other makeup artist cancelled on me the day before, luckily I was able to get glammed by my super hero Codie! She honestly saved me from looking a wreck, I was grateful that she could come to me on short notice and then she exceeded my expectations with her makeup skills and personality! I will definitely recommend using her if you need makeup, I will next time for sure!

So, Ivi is my sister and she is so great all around. You must be thinking I am biased, and maybe I am to some degree but seriously, Ivi rocks at she does! She has been styling and coloring my hair for 10+ years and I always trust her to take my vision and make it a reality. She has an artistic eye that is just not present with other stylists I’ve had. Ivi did my hair and makeup for a personal photo shoot in 2011 in which she also photographed me. She is amazing at multi-tasking and took her time to make sure all was perfect for what she wanted to achieve. Of course I asked her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding in 2014 (and wish she could have photographed it as well) and I could not have been happier with the results. Whatever the event, Ivi will always have your back and make sure your expectations are met- whether hairstyling, hair color, makeup, or photographing your special day. She strives to be the best at what she does, and I believe she succeeds. Here are some pictures of her work:

I love Jacq and how beautiful she makes me look! The products she uses are hypoallergenic so no fear of breaking out. Jacq can give you a beautiful natural look or a very glamorous evening look. She has done my daughter's makeup for pageants and photoshoots. If you have makeup, hair or waxing needs Jacq is the artist you can truly trust.

Raechel did hair and makeup for my wedding party and she did a fantastic job! First, I was very impressed with the time she took with me in our 'run through' appointment. I had a very rough idea of what I wanted and she spent hours with me to help me refine my look. Additionally, I never felt like I was imposing on her time and she never made me feel rushed. With her expertise, I was able to find a hair and makeup style that was perfect for the event! On my wedding day, she showed up on time and kept to the schedule. She did a wonderful job on my hair and makeup (just as we had practiced) and she even stayed until my ceremony began to ensure that I looked 'fresh' and polished. My wedding party even enjoyed the music that Raechel brought with her...we were all singing along and having a great time as we got ready for the wedding!! Overall, she exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Raechel to anyone looking for a professional, yet fun, hair and makeup artist. My memories of my wedding day will now also include her and I couldn't be happier because she helped make the day so enjoyable (...and she helped me look so fabulous!). Book Raechel! You will be happy that you did!
