Marisa did my makeup for both my bridal portraits and my wedding day and did an AMAZING job! Marisa is very talented and really listened to what I wanted and what my girls wanted and followed through 100%. Everyone in my bridal party looked so natural and beautiful! Not only is Marisa an amazing makeup artist, she is very professional, and personable! My bridal party and I had a lot of fun with her the day of my wedding. I am so glad I found her for my big day and cannot wait to hire her again! Marisa will not disappoint you!

Nicole is very nice and professional. We wanted Korean style makeup and she actually took time to study the tutorials I sent to her. Of course she did a fantastic job for me and my girls on the wedding day. I definitely recommend her to every lady out there who wants to hire a professional makeup artist for your special day!

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.

Ana did my wedding hair and makeup.She was absolutely great to work with. Before i scheduled my trial makeup/hair with her, i had tried other highly rated artists through weddingwire and i was not happy with the trials. The best thing i loved about Ana was that she was patient enough to first understand your taste and then work with you to create your own style.She did absolutely amazing for my wedding makeup and hair and i highly recommend her.

She is a super fun artist to work with, her artistic talent really is evident when she's applying makeup! I couldn't believe how natural and beautiful my makeup looked when she had finished, the makeup she used was very good for my skin and didn't cause any bad reactions whatsoever. I was extremely impressed with the great service she gave me, it was really needed and wanted!! I strongly recommend!

Duran was amazing! After a horrible previous experience with a different make up artist, I was made very aware that not all artists are experienced and professional. Duran was responsive and made me very comfortable for our trial run for my wedding. She was punctual, professional and gave me the exact look I wanted for my big day! I highly recommend her! :)

Haley provides on-site wedding services for the bride, bridesmaids, mother of the bride. She arrives early and sets up her mobile salon station in the bridal suite. She did a fabulous updo for the bride and also does flawless airbrush makeup. The bride was picture perfect throughout the entire celebration with temperatures in the high 90's during the outdoor ceremony. Haley is very friendly and does beautiful professional hair and makeup. We have asked her to be our preferred hairstylist and makeup artist. She is in my opinion the best in town for special event hair and makeup. Some of our brides have also used her airbrush tanning service a couple of days before the wedding and it looks natural and never orange. We highly recommend her and refer all of her services to our customers and Brides.

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!

Lea is great makeup artist. She did an amazing makeup on me and my mother for the wedding. I am so pleased with her service and she is very easy to work with. I will hire her again in the future. Her pricing is awesome along with her work, that was another reason which inclined me to hire her. She will satisfy you before she leaves and never rushes you. I will highly recommend everyone to hire her!! Thanks lea

    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.

      Michelle is one of the best makeup artists out there! I don't wear makeup at all but she knew exactly how to give my face a natural, beautiful look. I kept being strict with the "natural" part and she was very kind and understanding about me not knowing anything about makeup. She was very informative about the products she used on my face, what they were called, how they enhanced beauty, and the ingredients used. She mentioned she's taken classes and I can attest that she is very good at what she does. Book her now!! Thanks so much Michelle. I'll be back!
